Circle of the Wood (5e Subclass)
From D&D Wiki
Circle of the Wood
Druids who follow the Circle of the Wood are much averse to direct contact with others. They prefer to act from afar, gathering intelligence from a safe distance before acting. The wood shelters them and keeps them hidden away out of sight and out of mind, and they carry this modus operandi with them wherever they go.
- Plant Shape
When you choose this circle at 2nd level, you gain the ability to shapeshift into plant creatures in addition to beasts. The plant must be of a type that you have seen before and must obey the same Wild Shape restrictions that your class level is subject to.
- You may use a bonus action or reaction to hide after casting a spell.
- Circle Spells
Your mystical connection to the forest infuses you with the ability to cast certain spells. At 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th level you gain access to the circle spells of the dark wood. Once you gain access to a circle spell, you always have it prepared, and it doesn't count against the number of spells you can prepare each day. If you gain access to a spell that doesn't appear on the druid spell list, the spell is nonetheless a druid spell for you.
|Druid Level||Circle Spells|

- First Sight
Beginning at 6th level, you may use an action to grant yourself truesight to a range of 90 feet for up to one minute. You can't use this feature again until you finish a long rest.
- Beginning at 17th level, this feature recharges upon completing a short or long rest.
- Woodland Cloak
Beginning at 10th level, you may cast spells from this circle's spell list while using your Wild Shape ability. You can ignore verbal and somatic components while casting a spell in this way.
- Distanced Casting
Beginning at 14th level, you become able to project yourself at long distances. As long as you can see a target creature, you may cast spells with a range of touch targeting that creature as if you were adjacent to it.
