Changing shape using Wild Shape appears quite daunting when first looking it over. I was wondering if there was a clear, step-by-step, process of working out what you do and do not gain from changing shape.
I also understand that there is a similar question for DnD5E, which is why I would like it explained for Pathfinder in friendly terms if possible.
Here's a small list of example questions which should be addressed:
- Do you gain the skills listed for the new form via. Wild Shape?
- Do you gain the size bonuses listed in Wild Shape in addition to normal size modifiers?
- Are there any modifications to attributes, BAB, saves, etc.?
Some of these are listed clearer than others in the spell descriptions, but to have them all in one place would be extremely helpful.
