Does the Wild Companion optional class feature for druids grant access to the find familiar spell?
Basically I'd rather hard cast it than waste the Wild Shape on it. The Circle of Stars druid's Starry Form feature lets them expend a use of Wild Shape to take on the Archer or Chalice starry forms, which are superior in every way. Both will let you become an asset in battle one way or another. However, familiars can do 1 thing to make both better: allow touch spells at range using the familiar.
I know that you can burn a Wild Shape on it. But does the Wild Companion feature let you cast find familiar using spell slots instead (in which case expending a use of Wild Shape lets you quick-cast and ignore material component costs)?
