Druid Forms That Don't Suck
http://rpgbot.net/dnd5/charact...sses/druid/wildshape

Level 2-3:
--CR: 0
  • Spider: Good stealth, Darkvision, and climbing thanks to Spider Climb.
  • Cat: Tiny size, a decent Stealth bonus, Keen Smell, and a climb speed. Scout form.

--CR: 1/8
  • Mastiff: Keen Hearing and Smell, and a bit with a knockdown effect.
  • Camel: Decent speed, and can be ridden by your allies.

--CR: 1/4
  • Wolf: Keen Hearing and Smell, and Pack Tactics. Decent AC, somewhat low HP.
  • Giant Wolf Spider: Fantastic stealth, and climbing. Decent poison damage, low DC.
  • Giant Badger: A burrow speed, Keen Smell, and Multiattack. Poor AC and HP.


Level 4-7: - Allows Swim Speed
--CR: 1/4
  • Reef Shark: The best aquatic form at this CR. Land Druids will use this, but Moon Druids can use Hunter Shark at level 4 when swimming forms become available.

--CR: 1/2
  • Ape: Two melee attacks, decent damage & attack, and a rare ranged attack from an animal. Because the Ape has human-like hands, you can likely use weapons.
  • Crocodile: Great single-target CC. Decent damage, and advantage during CC.
  • Warhorse: Excellent speed and damage. Charge is nice.

--CR: 1 - max CR level for non-Moon druids
  • Dire Wolf: Good HP & AC. Good senses. Very solid combat form.
  • Giant Octopus: Great combat, decent stealth.
  • Brown Bear: Decent HP, Keen Smell, climb speed, Multiattack. Low AC & HP.
  • Giant Hyena: Low AC, good HP. Decent damage.
  • Giant Spider: Awesome Web attack, decent attack bonus.
  • Giant Toad: Poison damage. Swallow whole up to medium creatures.

--CR: 2 - Level 4 for Moon Druids
  • Giant Constrictor Snake: Fantastic at restraining and eliminating single targets.
  • Giant Elk: Charge is nice, ridiculous damage on its hooves. 4d8+4 is absurd.
  • Hunter Shark: Advantage vs damaged enemies.


Level 8+: - Allows Flying Speed
--CR: 1/4
  • Giant Vulture: Impressive multi-attack damage.

--CR: 3 - Moon Level 9
  • Ankylosaurus: Solid damage, reach, and a knockdown.
  • Giant Scorpion: Multiple grapples plus sting. Great poison, AC, and blindsight.

--CR: 5 - Moon Level 15
  • Giant Crocodile: Single-target option. Good CC.
  • Giant Shark: Great damage, blindsight, huge HP. No tricks, solid aquatic option.

--CR: 6 - Moon Level 18
  • Mammoth: Trampling Charge is excellent.


Elemental Forms: - Level 18 Moon
  • Fire: Ignite what can burn, Slam what can't. Murder everything.
  • Water: Grapple and drown two creatures, while still attacking.
  • Air: Flight. Decent damage. Not bad.
  • Earth: meh
