My character has recently acquired an item called the Howling Helm. What I have been doing in some of the bigger encounters I've been in, is command the 1d3 Wolves it creates to attack before I do.
What benefit does this offer me when I go to attack? One of the guys who was watching us play said it was a good tactic, but I don't know why. I was wondering if someone could explain what the benefits are of this tactic?
Obviously, I may be able to flank - if I can get the wolves into position properly. What are the other benefits of having the wolves attack just before I do?
This is how the action takes place:
See foe, run towards them - (out of range), call wolves, new round, send wolves to attack, then I follow and attack.
