Fire and Air are better branches for pet control and using ranged attacks and why Fire Crow is the most popular means is because it does not require a Line of Sight to hit targets.
Fire's support spells only work at a percentage. It's not until Lv 100 will they reach 100%
Not sure about Air's support.
The only reason why I mentioned earth was not to capitalize on summoning, but power. The summon is just there to serve as a companion -- maybe one who can heal, tank, or buff/debuff. In battle, you'll be doing most of the damage, not sitting back healing your Gobbal.
