View Full Version : Advantages of being a magical beast?

The Primeval prestige class from frostburn along with the Primal in the Warcraft: Alliance and Horde Compendium both turn you into a magical beast at 10th level.

I am wondering if anyone knows any specific advantages that come from this, and any cool options that this might offer for high level characters.

Well, if the Totemist is any example of awesomeness (and it is), then being a Magical Beast or being able to duplicate some of their abilities is downright epic-fun.

Alter Self can be used to turn you into a Displacer Beast or Displacer Serpent. The beast is arguably good, despite losing the Displacement ability, because the next spell that can do this is a 4th level spell in the SC that has a smaller duration.

There's also the usual type immunities, so no charm person or that lot, though you lost enlarge person, which is a shame. Also no crazy banishment effects for going the typical type change to outsider route.
