Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 48th episode of our beast series. Today we have a fantastic beast in store for us today and i love these guys especially in the instance of actual map building, i think they’re incredible and i’ll get into that in a little bit here. Today we’re taking a look at the cave badger dnd 5e monster. This is found in out of the abyss and it is considered to be a cr one quarter or 50 experience should kill him. That being said, lets take a quick look at its mechanics here and we will talk about it in a little bit further.

  • Armor Class: 12 Natural Armor
  • Hit Points: 13 (2d8 + 4)

So the cave badger is considered to be a medium beast that is unaligned. AC of 12 and 13 hit points calculated by rolling 2d8 and adding a four. Under speed it’s actually pretty unique so 30 feet of movement, and a burrow speed of 15 feet now something worth going over in detail is that this little guy leaves tunnels behind.

He is actually quite strong and hardy. It is also wiser than the average beast which is really important. Now taking a look at the rest of his stats nothing really to brag about his senses however, 30 feet of darkvision, 60 feet of tremorsense and a passive perception of 11 which is okay.

Keen Smell: The badger has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.


 So the cave badger is the first creature we’ve covered in any where series has Multiattack: The badger makes two attacks: one with its bite and one with its claws.

Bite: Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d6 + 1) piercing damage.

Claws: Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (2d4 + 1) slashing damage.

So only real difference is the damage between the two of them 1d6+1, the other is 2d4+1. One piercing and one slashing.
