Talk:Martial Arts Raptor (5e Optimized Character Build)
From D&D Wiki
So this build doesn't actually work Rules As Written.
- Wildshape creatures attacks are specifically called melee "WEAPON" attacks. They do not count as unarmed strikes without a DM homebrewing that rule.
- These Melee weapon attacks cannot be used as either monk weapons or unarmed strikes, meaning you can't use the bonus action martial arts attack.
- That results in it to be better to simply use the Bear Wildshape, taking the multi-attack attack rather than using Extra Attack.
These are minor issues that pretty substantially weaken this build. It's fine using homebrew rules, but belongs in the 3rd party rules catagory. As such I have moved this build there. ZaneOlric (talk) 22:11, 1 November 2019 (MDT)
