Assuming that you can force creatures to be willing, could a werewolf or other shapechanger be subject to Polymorph?
What I'm reading of Polymorph, RAW PHB p.266, is:
- "an unwilling creature must make a Wisdom saving throw to avoid the effect", and
- "a shapechanger automatically succeeds on this saving throw"
Interestingly, the wording for True Polymorph, PHB p.283, is different, being simply: "Shapechangers aren't affected by this spell." So, naturally, I simply seek clarification on whether I am interpreting this correctly:
Could a werewolf or other shapechanger be subject to Polymorph assuming it were charmed into being willing via Suggestion or similar?
(Can a willing lycanthrope be True Polymorphed? covers True Polymorph, though non-true Polymorph has different wording.)
