Taking inspiration from verdant creatures, you transform into a Large plant battle form. You must have space to expand into or the spell is lost. When you cast this spell, choose arboreal, flytrap, or shambler. You can substitute a similar specific plant to turn into (such as a pitcher plant instead of a flytrap), but this has no effect on the form's Size or statistics. While in this form, you gain the plant trait. You can Dismiss the spell. You gain the following statistics and abilities regardless of which battle form you choose:
  • AC = 19 + your level. Ignore your armor's check penalty and Speed reduction.
  • 12 temporary Hit Points.
  • Resistance 10 to poison.
  • Low-light vision.
  • One or more unarmed melee attacks specific to the battle form you choose, which are the only attacks you can use. You're trained with them. Your attack modifier is +17, and your damage bonus is +11. These attacks are Strength based (for the purpose of the enfeebled condition, for example). If your unarmed attack modifier is higher, you can use it instead.
  • Athletics modifier of +19, unless your own modifier is higher.
You also gain specific abilities based on the type of plant you choose:
  • Arboreal Speed 30 feet; Melee Single ActionSingle Action branch (reach 15 feet), Damage 2d10 bludgeoning; Melee Single ActionSingle Action foot, Damage 2d8 bludgeoning; you can speak in this form, but you still can't Cast a Spell or supply verbal components.
  • Flytrap Speed 15 feet; resistance 10 to acid; Melee Single ActionSingle Action leaf (reach 10 feet), Damage 2d8 piercing, and you can spend an action after a hit to Grab the target.
  • Shambler Speed 20 feet, swim Speed 20 feet; resistance 10 to electricity; Melee Single ActionSingle Action vine (reach 15 feet), Damage 2d8 slashing.
