View Full Version : Animal Companions Quick "Fix" [3.5, PEACH]

Animal Companions no longer exist; any PrC that advances the Animal Companion progression of anything else no longer does so.

Any effect that modifies or improves your Animal Companion now applies to the companion from the Wild Cohort (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/re/20031118a) feat.

Any class that grants you an Animal Companion instead gives you Wild Cohort as a bonus feat at that level, or allows you to grab another feat that you qualify for if you already have it.

Any feat that requires an Animal Companion now has Wild Cohort as a prerequisite instead.

Silverwood Arcanist (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/re/20031209a) now has a divine version as well; just change the prerequisites to reference 3rd level Divine spells instead of 3rd level Arcane spells, and have it progress divine spellcasting.

Thoughts? This essentially drops our good friends the Animal Companions back a HD, 1 point of Natural Armor bonus, a Trick and a point of Strength, but more importantly sticks Share Spells behind a 5 level PrC, where it belongs!
