We've been having an ongoing conversation in one of my games and the resolution doesn't make any sense to me. The ruling has been that animals cannot make a 5-foot step adjustment, they would have to make it as a move action.
My character, a druid, has an animal companion with an intelligence of 3, but I've been told that the animal can no longer make 5-foot steps, she has to take a move-action to do it.
I searched the forums for an answer and couldn't find anything. What is the general opinion of the community or is there something specific in the rules about this?
I have no problem with animals (including the ones that want to bite my head off) taking a 5-foot step as an adjust then still taking their full attack action.
Thanks for the help!
