One of my players is a 8th level druid. They favor wild shaping into a tiger. He cast spider climb and walked upto/onto the ceiling which was 30 feet high using the wall. He then wanted to use their special ability pounce from the ceiling onto an enemy.
Now I had no problems with them using pounce in this fashion, but the player wanted to deal falling damage on top of the pounce attack.
At the time I was not familiar with the falling damage rules so I ruled no, but after finding and reading them Im thinking Im wrong. This has lead me to a couple related questions.
- Does he take fall damage while pouncing from a high position?
- Would he deal falling damage while pouncing?
- If both are true, is the falling damage and falling/landing damage counted together or separate for purposes of DR?
- Would this all be the same if he was under the effect of a fly spell (and sufficiently up in the air) and pounced?
