Hello spellcasters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you for checking out the first ever episode of our find familiar options series. We’re gonna take a look at all of the players handbook familiars first and then get into the optional ones after that. So without further ado let’s get started with the first one on our list. Let’s take a look at the bat familiar dnd.

Echolocation: The bat can’t use its blindsight while deafened.

Keen Hearing: The bat has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing.

Actions: Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +0 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 1 piercing damage.


So looking over the stats here. The bat has a pretty decent AC of 12 which is really nice, it gets one hit point that’s determined by the average of 1d4 minus one. I’d roll it in all honesty why not right! You have five feet of walking movement and 30 feet of fly speed so this is clearly meant to be an aerial familiar.

Out of its stats, it ranks pretty poorly. Especially in terms of strength and intelligence which is fine for familiar. It’s best score by far though its dexterity and that’s a super great for those stealth checks right! In any case in senses you got 60 feet of blindsight which is awesome especially if you’re perceiving through it and it has a moderately decent passive perception of 11.

And as two kind of ability is the first bring echolocation what that means is it can’t use blind sense well it’s deafened. It also has keen hearing here the bat has advantage on any perception checks that rely on hearing.

It is a really good stuff! if i was a wizard i would have the bat, kind of hanging inside of my wizards cloak and i’d be perceiving through him almost the entire time. Really taking advantage of that blindsight, i think that’s such a good one, i really like it.


In any case, if you have any cool ways on how to use the bat, any thoughts, comments, concerns please put it down in the comments below i really appreciate it guys.
