A Wisp is Level 2 + 1/Level per Life Shard (I have two).  My Procipinee is a Summoner (+2 levels) and has Summons I (+1 level) and Summons II (+2 levels).  4+5=9, but the Wisp is summoned as Level 7.  One of the bonuses is not being applied properly.  FIX IT!

I summoned a Lightbringer that was 2 levels too low also.  However, the Summon Ignys was the correct level so maybe that's a clue.  Are the Life Shard level-ups not being applied (or maybe they're not supposed to be applied in which case you need to update the text).

i think the shard bonus doesn't apply. i just tested this with a fresh start, created a summoner champ and quickly got her a few levels to unlock the wisp. without life shards, the wisp is level 5 (2 base level +2 summoner trait + 1 summoning 1)

I saw this, it seemed to me that the life shard bonuses were not applying - my summons were too low by exactly my life shard count.

The wisp also doesn't scale in healing power despite it's increasing levels when summoned. Which makes him completely useless mid-late game compared to Ceresa's personal pet which only gets better with more levels as it has access to all spells as sovereign and can cast more powerful versions of those.

Simply put the code isn't add the lifeshard in it

        <GameModifier>
            <ModType>Unit</ModType>
            <Attribute>SummonUnit</Attribute>
            <UnitClass>Wisp</UnitClass>
            <ApplyToSpellRadiusCenterOnly>1</ApplyToSpellRadiusCenterOnly>
            <Duration>-1</Duration>
            <Calculate InternalName="Calc" ValueOwner="CastingUnit">
                <Expression><![CDATA[[UnitStat_BonusSummonLevel] + 2]]></Expression>
            </Calculate>
            <Calculate InternalName="Value">
                <Expression><![CDATA[[Calc]]]></Expression>
            </Calculate>
        </GameModifier>

It really should read.

     <GameModifier>
            <ModType>Unit</ModType>
            <Attribute>SummonUnit</Attribute>
            <UnitClass>Wisp</UnitClass>
            <ApplyToSpellRadiusCenterOnly>1</ApplyToSpellRadiusCenterOnly>
            <Duration>-1</Duration>
            <Calculate InternalName="Calc" ValueOwner="CastingUnit">
                <Expression><![CDATA[[UnitStat_BonusSummonLevel] + [UnitOwner_GetNumLifeShards]]]></Expression>
            </Calculate>
            <Calculate InternalName="Value">
                <Expression><![CDATA[[Calc] + 2]]></Expression>
            </Calculate>
     </GameModifier>

A similar fix for the tactical version of the spell.

Here is a fix for the problem, just drop this spell into your mods folder (or items folder so you don't need to run mods) and poof it will work as the description says it should. The fix includes lightbringer as well.

Parrothmath thanks for the fix, but as it is, is still a bugged spell(s) and it needs fixing by the devs team before release

We are here to provide feedback and report bugs (and I believe this is a bug since is not working as intended).

Mods shouldn't fix problems in the game, but rather create different play experiences by improving / modifying existing parameters

I agree, that is why I provided the feedback to find exactly the bug to the spell, I showed exactly what is needed to be fixed for the spell, and I provided them with a template that they can use to update the spell if they choose to use it. I'm just providing the feedback that I would expect when someone asks me a question.
