I am planning to DM a game and I have a person wanting to be an artificer.
I was curious if the player could adjust attacks to fit the form of their mechanical servant? The following is stated in the UA:
Select a Large beast with a challenge rating of 2 or less. The servant uses that beast’s game
statistics, but it can look however you like, as long as its form is appropriate for its statistics.
So, could he for example use the statistics from the giant elk, but change the 'Hooves' attack, which is only allowed to be used on prone targets, to work on standing targets, if he describes the form to be a like a humanoid giant which he can ride?
