This is hardly a game changer but found myself always selecting the bear as my animal companion as I didn't see the point in getting anything less powerful.
So now I deem the necessary roll to be standard + summoned animal's fighting ability minus 1.
Which means I can get a wolf at standard roll but need to roll 3 higher to summon the bear.
I guess in competition games you might not want to do this but I tend to play more 'story' based games including a lot of solo-campaigning.
