My Character for a 3.5 D&D game is a Barbarian going for the Bear Warrior-War Shaper route. I even took a Fist of The Forest to hope doing some real nice Kung fu Panda stuff. But unfortunately my DM said that UAS and natural weapons do not work together, so I cannot use anything from that level other than the AC bonus and I can't take the level back.

I just wanna ask, since I am not allowed to wear any kind of armour and going on the higher levels now; how do I make my Claw and Bite attack considered magical damage, since most foes have some pretty nasty DR/- later on? I am aware that having DR/magic actually gives magical natural weapons.

But since I transform, my DM says that everything I have on is morphed and therefore no benefits works.

Does this mean I have to get something obscure like a bracers of beastskin-DR/magic just to get the benefit, or is there a way to do this easier?


Getting DR/magic yourself may or may not work; many sources for PCs explicitly call out that they do not grant piercing DR/magic themselves.

However, as long as you have at least a +1 bonus on your natural weapons, they will count as magical. The easiest way to do that is in core, the Amulet of Mighty Fists, although the Amulet of Natural Attacks is more flexible and should allow the same results. In either case, a Wilding Clasp (MIC, 4000gp) should allow you to use the item just fine while transformed.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Although im pretty sure he will say that the amulet too is morphed into my "skins" when transformed and therefore not working :P \$\endgroup\$ – Christian Thorsted Jonasson Feb 6 '17 at 22:27

The simplest way would be to have someone cast Magic Fang on you. That lasts a few rounds. If you have a Druid buddy, you can ask him to cast Greater Magic Fang on you with breakfast each morning. That instead lasts hours/level, and provides a +1 per four caster levels.

The simplest ongoing way would be to have someone cast Magic Fang and Permanency on you. Market price for getting both should be about 3000gp, though you will need to get a 9th level wizard and ranger or druid in the same place.

You can also get Greater Magic Fang + Permanency if you want more numbers in addition to penetrating DR/magic. It then requires an 11th level wizard and costs 3050gp, plus the cost of the Greater Magic Fang.

These options are all core.
