Ironbeard / Feral Gnasher


Pathfinder First Edition General Discussion


New player here, hoping I can get some help with this one. I'm playing a Feral Gnasher and branched into War Priest for the ability to buff myself super quickly. I'm considering taking Iron Beard as a spell, in the hopes it will add to the bite damage I'm already dealing in a grapple. The campaign the GM is running is based heavily around demons. Is this a good use of the spell, or am I barking up the wrong tree here?


the beard is treated as armor spikes so it doesn't really help the bite much, so that tree is way off of what you want.

Animal fury rage power, get the grapple chain to at least rapid grappler, and have the big head goblin trait (if actually goblin) and the goblin feat ankle biter. and a Giants hide armor

Congrats, yer now biting up to 6 times a round on a single target, and you get to bite anyone aggressing you with a combat maneuver (excluding turning the grapple around back on you) and the hide lets you get up to large or huge while retaining your bite


armor spikes deal damage ontop of the damage you normally deal when grappling someone.... i think that's whathe meant by ADD TO his bite damage. not boost damage from the bite itself, but add damage that is in addition to the bite.

Yes, exactly. Would the Iron Beard deal damage in addition to the initial bite/grapple?

Thanks for that info! I'm going to look into this for sure. Any other tips would be appreciated also.
