Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: The at-will power is broken. How does being an animal allow you to ignore challenging terrain? Opportunity attacks are not normally triggered by shifts anyway, so this confers no benefit. More explanation is needed for the natural attacks - what's the proficiency bonus? weapon group? do they have an enchantment bonus or are they effectively useless at higher levels? Suggest +2 racial bonus for stealth rather than a flat +5. What happens if the player is a druid? Superior Hunter - Enemies either get a surprise round or they don't, so how does this work if some party members are surprised and others aren't?

Most people associate the Wilder with Werewolves. This is false. While Wilder can be wolves, they can also be any other medium sized mammal. The most common Wilder groups are: Canines, Felines, and Bears. All Wilder also have a base race that they originated from. You do not gain any bonuses from your base class, you simply have the appearance of the race when not in antro or animal form.

Play a Wilder if you want...

  • To be more in touch with your inner beast.
  • To shift into any medium sized animal of your choosing.
  • To be a member of a race that excels at the Martial and Primal classes.

Physical Qualities[edit]

Wilder look very much like their animal brethren in appearance. All Wilder have the ability to stand upright and on all fours without issues and all have a very noticeable eye shine. Wilder do not usually were clothing and if they do they make it themselves. Wilder tend to avoid humans when possible but are more open with other races of the Feywild such as the elves. Wilder are typically free-spirited and happy most of the time and hardly care what other people say about them. Since Wilder have a high matabolism, they tend to eat by the pounds.
