For my 5e homebrew setting, I'm making an elf subrace that's supposed to be able to turn into a tiny animal (like a squirrel, raccoon, wildcat etc) once per long rest, for a number of hours equal to half of the character's level, so 1st level character would be able to change shape for 30 minutes, 2nd level for 1 hour, and so forth.
Do you think this trait is balanced? If not, what do you think I should change?
For clarity, here's the full subrace trait list:
- Wisdom +1
- Fey shapechange (working title): once per long rest polymorph into any animal of tiny size for a number of hours equal to half of your character level.
