A wild whisperer is an expert at studying, predicting, and explaining animal behavior. She is less interested in plants, fey, and other aspects of the natural world, and uses her gifts to tame or relocate dangerous beasts and soothe the hurts of wounded and sickly creatures.
At 2nd level, a wild whisperer gains an inspiration pool as the investigator class ability. A wild whisperer uses her druid level as her investigator level when determining the effects of this ability. Instead of free uses of inspiration on Knowledge, Linguistics, or Spellcraft skill checks, the wild whisperer can use inspiration on Handle Animal, Heal, Knowledge (geography), Knowledge (nature), Ride, Sense Motive, and Survival skill checks without expending a use of inspiration, provided she’s trained in the relevant skill. She can also use inspiration on any wild empathy check without expending a use of inspiration. A wild whisperer’s inspiration pool refreshes each day when she prepares spells.
This ability alters wild shape.
At 6th level, a wild whisperer’s powers of observation give her an advantage when she’s fighting natural creatures. When using inspiration on an attack roll against an animal or a vermin or on a saving throw against an effect from an animal or a vermin, a wild whisperer has to expend only one use of inspiration instead of two.
This ability replaces the additional use of wild shape at 6th level.
At 8th level, wild whisperer selects an investigator talent.
This ability replaces the additional use of wild shape at 8th level.
