In addition to its changed statistics, the barghest while in wolf form can use pass without trace at will. Its statistics, other than its size and speed, are unchanged.

ACTIONS

Multiattack. The barghest makes one bite attack and two claw attacks. Instead of a bite attack, the barghest can use the feed action.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) piercing damage.

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) slashing damage.

Feed. The barghest targets one creature with 0 hit points it can see within 5 feet of it. The target must make a Constitution saving throw against the barghet's spell DC. On failure, the target dies and cannot be resurrected by spells or spell like features until the barghest is killed.


A barghest is a lupine fiend that can take the shape of a wolf or goblin. In its natural form, it resembles a goblin-wolf hybrid with terrible jaws and sharp claws. Barghests come into the world to feed on blood and souls to grow stronger.
As whelps, barghests are nearly indistinguishable from wolves, except for their size and claws. As they grow larger and stronger, their skin darkens to bluish-red and eventually becomes blue altogether. A full-grown barghest is about 6 feet long and weighs 180 pounds. A barghest's eyes glow orange when the creature becomes excited.
