Hello magic casters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 20th episode of our find familiar series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at yet another one of the pact of the chain options. May i introduce to you the pseudodragon dnd 5e familiar which isn’t just fun to say but is an incredibly great choice as well. That being said guys let’s move on to its stats.
Pseudodragon Familiar 5E Stats
First and foremost i’d like to point out that although it is technically a tiny dragon and technically neutral good it kind of depends on whether you pick the fiend, fey or celestial to inhabit it so just please bear that in mind. It has a decent AC of 13, some hit points namely seven calculated by rolling 2d4 and adding two. It has a walk speed of 15 feet and a fly speed of 60 feet. That is nuts i tell you. So this thing is gonna be up in the air more than anything else. Also check out this can a pseudodragon be a pet?
Looking at its stats, pretty impressive across the board only as a negative two to strength and has a +2 to dexterity which is nice. In terms of the skills you’d be looking at +3 to perception, +4 to stealth. In terms of senses 10 feet of blindsight which is really good. 60 feet of darkvision which is super helpful, passive perception of 13 and telepathic bond. Very cool stuff!

In terms of the languages it can understand common and draconic but it cannot speak. So bear that in mind. Let’s take a look at its other traits now. You can also read this 5e pseudodragon familiar warlock.
Keen senses which is a great one to have for any familiar. Has advantage on perception checks that rely on sight, hearing or smell. Which is presumably all of them. It also has limited telepathy which lets telepathically communicate with any creature within 100 feet of it. As long as it can understand the language and it also has magic resistance. So it has an advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects. Really good stuff there! Now let’s move on to its actions. Also read can a dragon be a familiar?
It has two main actions the first being it’s a bite attack. It’s a melee weapon attack with +4 to hit, standard 5 foot of reach and you can only target one target. It’s a does for piercing damage in a nutshell. You’re primarily going to be using a sting however, it is a melee weapon attack +4 to hit as well, has five foot of reach. Also does a 4 damage but the key here is the target must succeed on a DC11 constitution saving throw or be poisoned for one hour.
If the saving throw fails by five or more the target falls unconscious for the same duration or until it takes damage or another creature uses its action to shake it awake. I really like it, it’s pretty good. The most broken use for the pseudo dragon is actually milking it’s a venom, it’s venom fetches a very high price on the black markets and it is super useful especially within the party in terms of using it to poison weapons stuff of that nature. Run that past your DM though to see if they’ll allow it. But technically speaking if you look into the lore it definitely can. Also check out this how do you tame a pseudodragon 5e?.
That being said guys, thank you so much for checking out today. I really appreciate it and have a great day and happy casting.
