I was wondering which items and feats would help my druid (level 15) increase his tripping ability. I plan on doing a reach trip build in wild shape and tree shape form.



Lunge and Monkey Lunge are the easiest way to increase your reach.

For tripping, we have several good options:

  • Improved Trip and Greater Trip are both solid choices for any build focused on trip;

  • Fury's Call will allow you to add your Dex bonus to your CMB;

  • Tanden Trip is also an interesting option if you plan on tripping with an ally;

  • Wolf Trip will allow you to pick where the target will fall prone;

  • Drag Down will grant a free trip attempt when you are tripped.

  • Tripping Strike will allow you to make a trip attempt whenever you score a critical hit.

  • Riptide Attack might be interesting if you desire to drag enemies aswell.


Both Longarm Bracers and Pliant Gloves do talk about arms when increasing your reach, so depending on what you agree with your GM, your tree forms may or may not have arms per se.

The Gauntlets of Skilled Maneuvers will grant +2 on the chosen combat maneuver, a Brown Thorny Ioun Stone will grant +2 competence bonus on trips. Other than that, most trip enhancing magic items are magic weapons or weapon ehnacements.

However, a Wild Adhesive Armor will grant a +2 enhancement bonus on trip checks when using natural attacks. The Wild enchantment is required or otherwise your armor bonuses will cease to function while polymorphed.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Right and how about for trip? Improved trip, greater trip, fury's fall, are there any others? I only know of the three. Are there ant traits that will help tripping specifically? \$\endgroup\$ – Atalius Jun 1 '17 at 5:22
  • \$\begingroup\$ It's worth noting that Lunge/Monkey Lunge only apply during your turn, not for Threatening opponents during their turns. \$\endgroup\$ – Ifusaso Mar 2 at 23:17
