Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for clicked on our 9th episode of our beast series. Today we are going to be taking a look at the majestic, the grateful, the king of the skies, the dnd 5e eagle monster ladies and gentlemen. The eagles found in the dungeon master’s guide, phb and a couple of the other books out there.
This is a cr0 monster which means you get 10 experience if you kill it. Pretty good stuff. Now i really love the eagle this however is a tragic example of wizards of the coast. Not really having a good understanding of animals but whatever. That being said let’s take a quick look at its mechanics here so we can understand what we’re talking about.
So they consider the eagle to be a small beast and it is unaligned as most beats are. I think it should be a little bit bigger maybe even a medium just because i know eagles can get pretty massive but that is beside the point. Its armor class is 12, its hit point is 3 calculated by the roll of a rod d6, it’s speed is 10 feet walking but a fly speed is 60 which pretty impressive.
- Type: Small Beast, Unaligned
- AC: 12
- HP: 3(1D6)
- SPEED: 10FT, Fly 60ft
Taking a look at its stats you notice a higher than average dexterity and wisdom so it’s quite fluid in the air and it’s quite wise as well. Which is pretty cool.
- STR: 6(-2)
- DEX: 15(+2)
- CON: 10(+0)
- INT: 2(-4)
- WIS: 14(+2)
- CHA: 7(-2)
It’s skill has a +4 perception which is awesome. Which makes this passive perception of 14 which is very cool. It also gets keensight which gives it advantage of of perception checks that rely on sight and that makes sense because as you know eagles have notoriously good vision.
Now let’s take a quick look at its actions here of which it only has one and that is its talons attack. Which is a melee weapon attack:+4 to hit reach of 5 feet can only target one creature and it deals four damage on a hit for slashing damage to be more precise and that is calculated by a d4 and adding 2 to it.
Talons: By using this taloons this monster can make a Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) slashing damage.
Very cool stuff, that being said. I couldn’t really see this playing out in a lot of scenarios. I think this is a great spy animal to have for a wizard familiar or druid. Very nice stuff just cruising in high altitude. Watching the party keeping tabs on them. That’s how i imagine this best being used.
Keen Sight: As per this keen sight trait this eagle monster in dnd 5e has an advantage on the Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight.
