View Full Version : Wildshape and Animal Companion

2009-09-09, 05:22 AM
Can a Druid give an order to their Animal Companion while they are Wildshaped into a different kind of animal than their AC? Can I, as a Dire Ape, order my Dire Wolf to attack something?

Best of luck.

Handle Animal isn't language-dependent. Assuming the AC can recognize the druid, I'd say he should be able to command him still. It's not an unreasonable restriction from the point of view of verisimilitude rather than balance, though.

Clarification: I'd say as a Dire Ape you should definitely be able to issue commands. It's when you're a mouse or a budgie or something that it starts to raise eyebrows.
