In D&D 5e, can a monk/druid use the monk ability Flurry of Blows in wild shape?

  • \$\begingroup\$ "Fists of Fury" is apparently a WoW monk ability. Druid with animal shape could be a lot of rpgs. \$\endgroup\$ – nijineko Dec 5 '16 at 22:15

    \$\begingroup\$ @Miniman I think there's an argument that this isn't a duplicate. That question asks about unarmed attacks in general, this one asks if you can use Flurry of Blows. It's a different case because Flurry of Blows is a class feature, whereas unarmed attacks are generic and can be made by any character. \$\endgroup\$ – LegendaryDude Dec 6 '16 at 3:56

    \$\begingroup\$ This depends on OP, if he can ellaborate more that this isn't a duplicate, I'd vote to reopen \$\endgroup\$ – daze413 Dec 6 '16 at 4:01
  • \$\begingroup\$ @LegendaryDude Fair point - I guess I just assumed that the question was asking about the more complex issue. \$\endgroup\$ – Miniman Dec 6 '16 at 4:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ @daze413 Not sure what there is to elaborate on. It seems pretty straight forward to me. It may not be a great question, but it certainly can be answered as is. The linked question is asking about a different issue (unarmed attacks). \$\endgroup\$ – LegendaryDude Dec 6 '16 at 4:09

Yes. When using Wild Shape, you still have access to any features granted from your class, race, feats, and so on. (PHB, pg 67)

    \$\begingroup\$ I think it's worth referencing the "as long as the new form is physically capable" clause. A druid/monk wildshaped into a python isn't issuing a flurry of blows, for instance.... \$\endgroup\$ – nitsua60 Dec 6 '16 at 6:58

    \$\begingroup\$ @nitsua60 True, but I think that falls under "can I make an unarmed attack?" in the linked duplicate. If you're a snake, can you make an unarmed attack with your tail? You still have a head, so can you headbutt? I imagine a big enough anaconda would have enough force behind a headbutt/whip to do at least some damage. \$\endgroup\$ – LegendaryDude Dec 6 '16 at 16:58
