So at a glance AC of 11 kind of meh we’ve covered better, we’ve covered worth it’s gonna right in the middle. HP of one, it can’t get much worse than that. So how fast is the owl 5e? the speed of five feet in terms of walking but sixty feet in terms of fly and what.

So that means if you are willing to use the dash action with your familiar that’s a 120 feet that is nuts. Outside of that, it’s pretty good for dexterity and wisdom which is very befitting of an owl when you really think about it. All of its other features are sorely lacking but you know it’s a familiar.

It has two skills though perception +3 and stealth +3 that’s nuts. Darkvision up to ridiculous 120 feet and passive perception of 13 which is better than most characters. So i mean i really especially early levels oh man i love this 120 feet of darkvision that’s brutal. Also read dnd 5e owl familiar help action.

It has two abilities as well, the first being flyby The owl doesn’t provoke opportunity attacks when it flies out of an enemy’s reach. would a permanent disengage that’s awesome.

Another ability is Keen Hearing and Sight The owl has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing or sight here the keyword being or there so essentially was perched up on your shoulder you have 120 feet of darkvision and you have advantage on essentially all perception checks. That’s nuts, i tell you wow that is crazy good. You can also check out serpentine owl 5e.

Also if you’re confronted by an enemy the owl can just fly away fine like it can’t be hit by attacks of opportunity so your familiar is likely not going to be in a lot of danger and this is perfect for planning out like battlefield plans and stuff, your owl can scout up above it use it stealth, uses darkvision and you can use that to kind of create a map or orientate allies, really useful at night. Wow this is awesome. Yeah, definitely the best one we’ve covered so far. You can also check out this owl’s wisdom 5e.
