[RPG] How to fix Essentials Druid sentinel’s Armor Class


The sentinel is a wis/con leader designed to fight in melee combat. While it comes with an animal companion, the sentinel is limited to light armor and has dex as a tertiary stat at best.

Are there any official rulings giving a sentinel access to better armor or giving them constitution modifier to AC? If not, is a house rule giving them con to armor too disruptive?

Best Answer

Play the druid as is, it looks fine.

To improve AC:

  • Take the bear companion (has an aura, any ally in the aura gets +2 power bonus to all defenses
  • Level 1 Primal Guardian class feature: Use Con for AC
  • Use a light shield (Noted by Peter Seckler)
