You should get your first one by now...

Your Storm Wizard is only level 17.

When you turn 18, speak to Halston Balestrom in his classroom in Ravenwood to begin the quest "Inquisition Mission" which will lead to your own Storm Minion.

At level 28 you will be offered the quest "Learning a Lesson" from Dworgyn which will set you on your way to getting your own Minion to summon in battle.

Be warned: most players find minions pretty useless. They essentially cast spells at random, which means they don't intelligently stack blades and traps, don't do a lot of damage compared to a player wizard, don't concentrate on the most vulnerable targets, and worst, tend to use up traps you cast, seriously limiting the damage you can do. In the rare case they actually manage to do serious damage, npc opponents will start targeting them and pretty quickly blow them away. In most situations summoning a minion is a waste of pips that could have been better used for something else.

That said, treasure card minions that do a different damage type than you do, so they don't burn your traps, are probably the most effective. If you like to use feint, though, off school damage won't keep a minion from burning it.
