Familiar

You can replace your Warlock's Curse or Hunter's Quarry with a creature that deals damage instead, which does between d6 and d10 damage per tier.
Prerequisite: Warlock of Ranger
Benefit: You can replace Warlock's curse or Hunter's Quarry class feature and replace the damage it does with the "Familiar" class feature, which allows you to use a familiar creature to attack your enemies. The familiar's do a roughly equivalent amount of damage to the Warlock's Curse or Hunter's Quarry class feature, and can attack creatures with a minor action, even those you are not adjacent to or attacking. The Familiar can make move, minor and standard actions on it's turn, although your character must take a minor action action for the creature to attack. The familiar is augmented by the same feats which modify the Hunter's Quarry or Warlock's curse feat, with the exception of lethal hunter. Although some of the familiar creatures are necrotic, undead or beast themed, you may choose either of the options when replacing your class feature, regardless if you are a warlock or ranger. Furthermore, the exact familiar you choose can use any mechanical traits of any of the group types presented, so for instance a wolf could use bear statistics, or a raptor (bird) could be replaced by a giant insect and so on. In theory, non-present creatures such as a velociraptor could replace the wolf, and so on. While any creature can function as any creature for roleplay elements, it is wise to choose a creature with similiar mechanical features, such as a bat or eagle to replace the raptor, instead of a flying wolf. Familiar's do not grant combat advantage to your character, but do grant combat advantage to your allies, with exception with the wolf Familiar. Familiar's increase their defenses by 1/2 your level, and their health remains a fraction of your health (so it would be half your health at level 21, 22 etc.). Familiar's have no healing surges, but you may spend a healing surge when a power would otherwise allow your familiar to regain healing surges; you may use your healing surge value when determining how many hitpoints the familiar regains. When your familiar dies in combat and fails it's last death saving throw, it is instead unconscious, and regains consciousness at the end of battle with 1 hitpoint. In this way familiar's cannot die, but when they are dead they cannot be used for the rest of battle.


Beasts[edit]

You can choose from the Bear, Boar, Cat, Raptor, Serpent, Lizard, Spider, or Wolf beast familiars. The bear does d10 damage, while the raptor does d6 damage per tier, and the rest of the creatures do a d8 damage on a successful hit. Some creatures have special abilities, so for instance a spider has a climb speed of 6, the raptor (bird) has a fly speed of 8, and the Serpent has a Swim speed of 7. Some creatures have special abilities, such as the spider which gains an encounter power which allows it to immobilize a creature, while the wolf grants combat advantage to the user when flanking.
