[RPG] Does a Beast Master Ranger’s Companion Level Up With Them


As the title states, when you choose a Ranger archetype at 3rd level and choose Beast Master to gain a companion, does the companion level up with you as you progress?

Best Answer


But its AC, attack rolls and damage scale with the ranger's proficiency bonus, and its HPs with ranger's level.

PHB p.93

Choose a beast that is no larger than Medium and that has a challenge rating of 1/4 or lower (appendix D presents statistics for the hawk, mastiff, and panther as examples). Add your proficiency bonus to the beast’s AC, attack rolls, and damage rolls, as well as to any saving throws and skills it is proficient in. Its hit point maximum equals its normal maximum or four times your ranger level, whichever is higher.
