Bone and Bear|
I am considering replacing Choranth’s skeletal bears with bears using the bone template from the BoVD. For those who don’t know this template allows a monster to keep its feats and special abilities (i.e. improved grab). They also gain Weapon Finesse and a +4 dex. Neither of which do much for the bears. They will have the same hit points and saves.
The bears as written are CR 3 (skeletal template bases CR on hit die). The bone bears would be CR 5 (bone template is base CR +1). This seems like a huge jump for what it gives them. I can see making them CR 4, because they are better than the skeletal bears, but 5 is a bit much.
Has anyone else made these changes? What do you all think?
Thanks a lot.
