Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking into the 66th episode of our beast series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at the dnd 5e ox monster which is kind of the better version of the donkey in more ways than not.
Naturally they’re a lot bigger naturally they’re going to be a lot stronger so, but they’re both kind of farm hand kind of animals. The ox is found in the volo’s guide to monsters and it is considered to be cr one quarter and that’s you 50 experience points on a kill. CR:1/4(50XP). Now let’s take a look at his stats here.
DnD 5E OX Stats
So the ox is considered to be a large beast that is unaligned. It has an AC of 10 and then 15 hit points, calculated by rolling 2d10 and adding 4 and a speed of 30 feet.
- Type: Large Beast, Unaligned
- AC: 10
- HP: 15(2D10+4)
- Speed: 30ft
Taking a look at his stats you’ll notice he’s ridiculously strong, netting in a +4 modifier to strength, +2 to constitution as well, and outside of that he’s pretty standard for a beast.
- STR: 18(+4)
- DEX: 10(+0)
- CON: 14(+2)
- INT: 2(-4)
- WIS: 10(+0)
- CHA: 4(-3)
And now he only has 1 sense and that is a passive perception of 10. Now let’s take a quick look at his other traits here.
The ox has a charge ability, if the ox moves at least 20 feet towards a target and then hits it with a gore attack on the same turn, and the target takes an extra 7 piercing damage calculated by rolling 2d6.
Beast of Burden
He’s also a beast of burden, The ox is considered to be a huge animals for the purposes of determining its carrying capacity. Which is pretty cool and of itself. I’ll also take quick moment here and check out its gore attack.
So the gore is considered to be a melee weapon attack: +6 to hit which is great, reach of 5feet, one target and deal 7 piercing damage on a hit, calculated by rolling 1d6 and adding 4.
That being said! i just really like him, i think he’s cool, once again i probably have him as more of a background farmhand kind of animal, but if you mess with the ox you get the horns i guess, i don’t know!
Very cool though, that being said! let me know how you would use them in your games down beneath in the comments section, also mention any questions, comments or concerns you may have down there as well. That being said i hope you have a great day and as always happy researching.
