A Level 3 Wildheart Barbarian has access to the following spells and features (in addition to their Barbarian features):

  • Speak with Animals
  • Bestial Heart
  • Level 3 – Speak with Animals, Bestial Heart
  • Level 6 – Animal Aspect
  • Level 8 – Land’s Stride: Difficult Terrain
  • Level 10 – Second Animal Aspect
  • Bear Heart
  • Eagle Heart
  • Elk Heart
  • Tiger Heart
  • Wolf Heart
  • Aspect of the Beast: Bear
  • Aspect of the Beast: Chimpanzee
  • Aspect of the Beast: Crocodile
  • Aspect of the Beast: Eagle
  • Aspect of the Beast: Elk
  • Aspect of the Beast: Honey Badger
  • Aspect of the Beast: Stallion
  • Aspect of the Beast: Tiger
  • Aspect of the Beast: Wolf
  • Aspect of the Beast: Wolverine
  • Keep in mind that you can change your Bestial Heart choice every time you level up.
  • Thanks to their level 8 feature Land’s Stride: Difficult Terrain, Wildheart Barbarians are even more mobile than the other subclasses, as they don’t suffer movement penalties when moving through difficult terrain.
  • The level 6 Wildheart ability Aspect of the Beast: Wolverine allows you to impose the maimed condition for 1 turn when you attack an enemy that is already poisoned or bleeding, reducing that enemy’s speed to 0 until it receives healing. If you combine that with the Tiger’s Bloodlust ability you get by picking the Tiger Heart, you’ll have an easy way to apply Bleed to your targets. The greatsword’s Lacerate ability also works there, while a greataxe can Cleave, maiming multiple bleeding targets at once.

If I'm not working or spending time with the family I'm probably gaming. Some of my favorite recent games I've played are Far Cry 5, World of Warcraft Classic, and 7 Days to Die.
