I have a player with a 7th level druid. Due to the wording of Beast Shape 2 and 3, pounce is granted for the 2nd, but rake is part of the 3rd.
After reading pounce, grab, and rake I'm a little confused. He has been trying to use the rake attack as part of pounce since pounce says it has it if the creature's form does. I've kindof ruled that he doesn't gain access to anything which lets him benefit from rake until 8th level when the spell would grant it.
So does the wording of pounce overrule the rake restriction in Beast Shape?
