[RPG] Does a Wood Elf still receive the benefits of Fleet of Foot while in Wild Shape


The Wood Elf gets the 'Fleet of Foot' racial ability which states: "Your base walking speed increases to 35 feet."

Does this +5' increase in land speed carry over to any Wild Shapes?

Best Answer

Yeah, you get to keep it.

Check the SRD on wildshaping:

You can stay in a beast shape for a number of hours equal to half your druid level (rounded down). You then revert to your normal form unless you expend another use of this feature. You can revert to your normal form either by using a bonus action on your turn You automatically revert if you fall unconscious, drop to 0 hit points, or die. While you are transformed, the following rules apply:

You retain the benefit of any features from your class, race, or other source and can use them if the new form is physically capable of doing so. However, you can't use any of your special senses, such as darkvision, unless your new form also has that sense.

I've snipped some parts and added some emphasis, but you get to keep racial benefits if the new form can use them. That includes Fleet of Foot.
