As I'm getting a Roc via the Animal Domain lv4 Class feature, the AC is 3 levels lower then your current lv.Meaning I get the Roc at lv 4 and it is only a lv 1 Roc.
I need Boon Companion to boost it back to my full class level.
As to why I chose this? This is the only way for a Eagle Shaman to get a Roc AC.
An Eagle Shaman taking an AC via Nature's Bond instead of a domain class feature, can only pick Bird(Eagles).
I'm going druid for all levels.
The Eagle Shaman archetype itself restricts you to only eagles as AC.If you want a Roc, you have to get it via the animal domain or related subdomain.
Only OTHER option is Monstrous Mount, but its not what I'm looking for.
