Druid Companions question

#1TavenknaughtlinPosted 12/17/2008 12:56:43 AM
Do druids get any new companions in the expansion? i noticed a small velociraptor in the Game Informer review, and wondered if they had become a new companion for druids (which would be awesome).

Yes they are, but you can't select them at character creation, you have to take the "Dinosaur Companion" feat to get them.

If you take the druid cohort that's available in the first town, he automatically comes with a dino companion and it kicks butt compared to my ranger's panther.

The raptor is, hands down, the best companion. As it should be, considering you have to burn a feat to get it.

The only problem is that it has a rather large footprint.

what are the requirements for the Dinosaur Companion feat?

None, you just need to be able to have an animal companion.

This includes clerics with the Animal domain.

You can have a dinosaur companion at character creation. Just take the feat at creation(as a druid) and poof you'll have a dino from the start of the game, only rangers and clerics have to wait.

The Dinosaur companion feat requires both the Animal Companion Feat and the Natural Bond feat. Unlike Epic Animal Companion, the Natural Bond feat is normally only a benefit for multi-classers, but it appears to be a requirement for the Dino Companion feat.
