Today we are taking a look at the swarm of ravens dnd 5e i’m kind of bummed out they didn’t call it an unkindness cuz that’s typically what a flock of ravens is called.

It’s kind of a missed opportunity but whatever the swarm is considered to be a cr 1/4 creature and it is found in the basic rule set. Now without further ado let’s take a quick look at it’s mechanics here and kind of break it down a little bit.

  • DEX: 14 (+2)
  • CON: 8 (-1)
  • INT: 3 (-4)
  • WIS: 12 (+1)
  • CHA: 6 (-2)

  • Senses: Passive Perception 15
  • Languages:
  • Challenge: 1/4 (50 XP)

You’ll notice quite dexterous clocking in at a plus 2 to dexterity and a plus one on wisdom as well. Which is actually really good. Now taking a look at its damage resistances it is much like the other swarms in the way that it is bludgeoning, piercing and slashing and of course much like the other swarms you have the condition immunities as well Charmed, Frightened, Grappled, Paralyzed, Petrified, Prone, Restrained, Stunned.

It also has a plus five to perception which is great making for a passive perception of 15 which is obnoxiously high for the beasts. It also has another trait and that is the swarm trait. Do you know how fast can a raven fly in d&d?.

Other Traits

  • Swarm: The swarm can occupy another creature’s space and vice versa, and the swarm can move through any opening large enough for a Tiny raven. The swarm can’t regain hit points or gain temporary hit points.

So kind of like the other ones. Now let’s check out its actions here so the swarm of ravens can perform the beaks action. Also read dnd 5e swarm ranger.

  • Beaks: Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target in the swarm’s space. Hit: 7 (2d6) piercing damage, or 3 (1d6) piercing damage if the swarm has half of its hit points or fewer.

This is considered to be a melee weapon attack, +4 to hit, reach of five feet which is interesting because the other swarms already zero foot reach so this could actually strike out around it as well which is pretty cool! Can target one target in the swarm space and on a hit it deals 7 piercing damage. Calculated by rolling 2d6 or 3 piercing damage calculated by rolling 1d6. if the swarm is a half of its hit points or fewer.

Very cool stuff! I absolutely love the fact that it can strike out against also the impressive fly speed on this is pretty cool as well. I’d probaly have this or even a cluster of swarms come like hunt a party down i think that’d be a pretty cool thing.
