Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! That’s right we’re back guys…whooo! Today we are taking a look at the 76th episode in our beast series and we’re taking a look at the wolf dnd 5e monster manual, i know a lot of you’ve been asking for it so i promise we’re here to stay i really want to finish up this series cuz i kind i might have bit off a little bit more than i can chew.

So if you appreciate the series, please feel free to drop a comment and subscribe to my youtube channel and also follow me on social media like pinterest. Now let’s dive into the wolf. Wolf is actually found in the basic rule set which is nice cuz it’s kind of a great all-around starter enemy and it is considered to be cr one quarter netting you a hefty fifty experience points on a kill. Now let’s take a look at the stats for this majestic beast.

Wolf Monster DnD 5E Stat Block

  • Type: Medium beast, unaligned
  • Armor Class: 13 (Natural Armor)
  • Hit Points: 11 (2d8 + 2)
  • Speed: 40 ft.
  • STR: 12 (+1)
  • DEX: 15 (+2)
  • CON: 12 (+1)
  • INT: 3 (-4)
  • WIS: 12 (+1)
  • CHA: 6 (-2)

Now dnd 5e considers the wolf to be a medium beast that is unaligned. Having a 13 AC and 11 hit points calculated by rolling 2d8 and adding 2 and having a very nice speed of 40 feet. Now taking a look at its stats you’ll notice quite comfortable in terms of strength and dexterity constitution and wisdom and making the wolf quite a versatile fighter.

  • Skills: Perception +3, Stealth +4
  • Senses: Passive Perception 13
  • Languages:
  • Challenge: 1/4 (50 XP)

Under skills you’ll see a plus three bonus to perception and a plus four bonus to stealth very nice and making a for a passive perception of 13 under senses. I would have liked to see them of darkvision but whatever doesn’t really matter to me. Now let’s move on to its other traits.

Other Traits

  • Keen Hearing and Smell: The wolf has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing or smell.
  • Pack Tactics: The wolf has advantage on attack rolls against a creature if at least one of the wolf’s allies is within 5 feet of the creature and the ally isn’t incapacitated.

Under other traits now you’ll see that the wolf has keen hearing and smell which of course makes sense. Advantage on perception checks that rely on hearing or smell and in the ever-popular, ever detrimental pack tactics which give an advantage on attack rolls against the creature if at least one of the wolf’s allies is within five feet of the creature and the ally is not incapacitated. Very nice stuff! Anything with pack tactics can be a real thorn in the side.

  • Bite: Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (2d4 + 2) piercing damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 11 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.

And under actions you will see that the wolf just has its simple bite. It is a melee weapon attack, +4 to hit, reach of five feet one target and deals seven piercing damage on a hit. Calculated by rolling 2d4 and adding two.

If the target is a creature must succeed on a dc11 strength saving throw or be knocked prone RIP wizards. In any case i really do like the wolf, so how i would roll the wolf into my games, i’d honestly have them being more so supportive enemies. Providing much needed to support to a bigger big bad. Do you know what is the most powerful monster in d&d.

That being said, the wolves themselves do lend themselves to creating a certain ambience and atmosphere and for that reason alone i think they’re good is just having random forest dwellers. For example if someone roles decently on a perception check but not super great you could drop a hint like you feel like you’re being watched.

And a wolf woud definitely make sense. They don’t really have dark vision which is disappointing but between a keen hearing and smell and just general good perception you’d think it’d be feasible.


That being said, let me know how you would use the wolf in your game down beneath in the comment section. Also mention any thoughts, questions, comments or concerns. That being said, i hope you all have a great day and as always happy researching my friends.
