Animal panther

Silent and deadly, the panther is capable of disappearing and reappearing where the enemy least expects it. Black as a Chultan night and just as deadly, these sleek cats attack from the shadows, disappearing back into them once the hunt is through.

  • Up to level 19, a panther companion's sneak attack and uncanny dodge abilities improves as that of a rogue one level higher than the panther. In the epic levels (20+), the sneak attack no longer improves (remaining at +10d6 bonus damage), while the uncanny dodge ability increases as it would for a rogue the same level as the panther.
  • This animal companion's skills do not improve as level increases.
