If I'm trained in Medicine and a master in Nature can I attempt the Treat Wounds action against a DC 30 to increase the Hit Points regained or I'm stuck with the 2d8 Hit Points of the DC 15?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

We don't know. There's like five threads on this and chirurgeon as well.

General consensus is "the wording is such that probably not."

One

Three

Five

And oh yeah the search I did.


The practical answer: houserule it in order for your group to have the most fun.

Personally, if someone spends a feat to use Nature in place of Medicine, I allow it to apply to all checks asking for Medicine skill.

On the other hand, it could also be played that it only applies to the basic tasks that it lists in the feat. So as to not step on the toes of someone who is actually training Medicine. The natural medicine player could be a backup healer, but not the primary.

For Treat Wounds, yes, you can attempt a DC 30 check. For anything else linked to Treat Wounds, like Battle Medicine, no.
