Shapechange permits you keep your Intelligence & class options, whereas taking on your new types’ bodily stats. In idea, which means a Bladesinger may change right into a Marilith and get 7 assaults with loopy modifiers utilizing Bladesong, whereas having actually excessive AC and Focus saves.
Nonetheless, a number of questions got here up:
- Swords Not Included™: You would want to provide 6
melee weaponsrapiers to profitget essentially the most out of Tune of Victory. How may you successfully carry these earlier than Shapechanging, and effectively wield them afterwards?
- Assuming this goes easily, would your weapon assaults be at +11 to hit (+5 Dex as a consequence of finesse + 6 proficiency), the Marilith’s +9 (which seems to be +four from Str, as a consequence of longswords not having finesse, and +5 prof), or +10 (+5 from Dex/finesse and +5 from proficiency)?
- Would the injury be 6d8 + 60 for the sword assaults (w/ Tune of Victory), plus 2d4 + 9 for the tail?
- Would AC be 18 + 5 (Bladesong) = 23 (+5 optionally with Protect) ; and +15 Focus Saves?
Granted, it is no Want, however vs a handful of highly effective targets (particularly with Spellcasting), I really feel prefer it may actually carry enemies down shortly and maintain the road, ideally if Hasted by a celebration member.
