Notes Edit

  • The summon creature V spell and transmogrifying wand item property summon a weaker creature with a strength of only 24, no ranks in discipline, no feats other than the weapon proficiency, and no uses of intensity. This reduces attack bonuses and damage by 3 and lowers the challenge rating to 8. The ResRef of this summoned creature is nw_s_beardire.
  • A variant on this creature is the ancient dire bear, which differs from a regular dire bear only in that it has 300 hit points and its challenge rating is 15. The ResRef of this creature is nw_beardireboss.
