Post subject:  Ally friendly attacks?

I am trying to figure out all of the attacks that are safe to use around summons/golems etc, and I'd like to ask for help here. If I can get a complete list I will update this first post for anyone looking for the same information. Please list what category the ability falls under.

So far I know the following:
Oozing Blades: Oozebeam - beam, passes through allies without harm.
Acid Blades: Acid Beam - beam, passes through allies without harm.
Mindstar Mastery: Leaves Tide - AoE (buffs allies)
Distortion: Everything after 5 points in Distortion Bolt - AoE and single target
Fire Drake Aspect: Bellowing Roar - AoE
Staff Combat: Channel Staff - single target
Prodigy: Irresistible Sun - AoE
Explosive Admixtures: Throw Bomb after 5 in Alchemist Protection; not tested on non-golem allies - AoE
Fire Alchemy: Fire Storm - AoE
Nightfall: Everything after 5 points in Invoke Darkness - AoE and single target

I don't think Archmage has any unique to them, which makes sense since they can't summon. Bellowing Roar seems to be party friendly because it's the opening attack of a summoned fire drake. Everything else belongs to summoning/golem classes.

Nightfall also passes through allies (Necrotic Minions only?) at TL 5.

Pretty situational, but I've never hurt my Thought-forms with Psychic Assault attacks.

Thanks I will test them

-Nightfall becomes safe for all allies like Distortion. Psychic Assault DOES hit allies, unfortunately. And its AoE brainlocks them, so it's terrible to use with a golem. Too bad, that could have been fun.

That is unfortunate...

The second and fourth talents from those trees are single-target though, if you think you'll need lots of mind damage. I'm not sure about Synaptic Static though.

Grave: Cold Flames is safe when you do it. It does not seem to be safe for my minions when my Forgery does it. Not sure what the mechanic is.

Pretty sure I remember being hit by my own Maelstrom even after 5 in Distortion Bolt, but maybe that was in an earlier build. EDIT: It works fine with 5 in Distortion Bolt. Remembering an Animus Purge Husk friendly fire incident.

Iirc Blast and Reproach from Doomed are also safe, but I've only tested them on Shadows.
