General Marksman

Spirit Link broken? So I recently became a Marksman and put 1 point into Spirit Link thinking that the effect ( +1% damage, +11%HP, +1% DEF and MDEF, and +1% elemental resistance) would activate whenever I summoned Frostprey out, it would change my stats to reflect the skills description. However, I'm noticing a lack of difference between Frostprey out and Frostprey not summoned at all; is anyone else experiencing this/have a suggestion that could help me? TL;DR: I think SL activates as soon as I summon Frostprey out and my stats go down once it expires but evidently nothing's happening at all
