Does the to-hit bonus of the Iron Defender's Bite increase when the proficiency of a Battle Smith Artificer (from the 2019 artificer UA) increases?

The starting bonus is +4 (which I assume is the Iron Defender's STR modifier + proficiency bonus), but nothing in the subclass' description indicates that the bonus changes.


It does increase.

From the Iron Defender's stat block:

Might of the Master. The following numbers increase by 1 when your proficiency bonus increases by 1: the iron defender’s skill bonuses, the bonuses to hit and damage of its bite, and the number of hit points restored by its Repair action.

    \$\begingroup\$ @Kuerten: Heh, to be fair, the iron defender's "traits" wouldn't have been the first place I'd look for that info either :) \$\endgroup\$ – V2Blast Aug 14 '19 at 2:14
