I realize a potion of Alter Self would do the trick but I came across this spell and wondered.

I don't think it would work due to the wording but wanted to make sure.

Cheers!


i wonder this was well

Sovereign Court

In theory it would work as long as the target isn't at full health (which they wouldn't be if you've hit them with a Pheromone Arrow).

However, assuming you're one of the classes with access to it, the Bloodhound spell gives you Scent for hours per level instead of minutes.

Alternatively, I'm a big fan of the item Animal Mask. Swift action to gain Scent and your choice of bite or gore for 5 minutes per day in 1 minute increments.

Druids can't have nice things. :(

Counter argument: Wild Shape, animal companion, full casting. Druids have all the nice things they need.


But their spell list has a lot of holes.

What are you lacking? Maybe folks may have suggestions.


fly without transforming.
sent without transforming.

Are the 2 ones i miss right now.

Sovereign Court

Those can be acquired by domains, if you want to give up your animal companion. But it's kind of the point that they don't have those things because they have Wild Shape.


Nature fang correct? And you want an animal companion?

Feather domain boon companion. For one feat I just cranked your perception got you 2nd—feather fall, 3rd—fly, 6th—mass fly and got you an additional bonus to your fly speed. You also have air walk.

Also worth looking at is the animal totem tattoo. Specifically bat for flight and blindsense when you need it.

If you want scent items from the other tread are the best option specifically animal mask.

  • Aspect of the Wolf is a good spell, but a little higher level.
  • Blood Scent (actually a good option because other people with benefit from the arrow)
  • Sensory Amplifier if some else casts it though this is an odd one

    Polymorph without wild shape.

  • Fey form (mite, bagman, Bagiennik, Rabisu (which has a ranged touch attack that you may get) many others). Fey are not called out in the polymorph rules so you keep your gear.


  • Scent - Aspect of the wolf Drd 5

    Fly - Air Walk Drd 4, Cape of Wasps Drd 4, (Air Step at Lvl 2 might be enough, depending on your needs) Winds of Vengeance Drd 9, Wind Walk Drd 7, Enlightened Step Drd 6,

  • Will take a look at feather domain.
