Wild Shape: Deep Rothé

The Deep Rothé Wild Shape proves valuable in crowd control. You won’t find many uses for this wild shape outside of combat since it’s slow and lacks the ability to fly or climb like some other druids’ wild shapes. However, it boasts a fantastic high hit points pool and one particularly useful attack. With the Charge action, the Deep Rothé not only deals decent piercing damage but also has the ability to knock all enemies in its path prone. This makes it effective for crowd control, allowing you to immobilize multiple enemies and remove them from the fight temporarily. Another action that this wild shape possesses is the Gore action.

Similar to all druid’s wild shapes, the Deep Rothé has a special self-healing ability called Lunar Mend that can restore some of your hit points without spending a spell slot.
