Notes

  • The raven is the only standard familiar given a specific name: "Quothe". This is a reference to Edgar Allen Poe's poem "The Raven", and probably also the raven Quoth who appears in Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels (himself a reference to "The Raven").
  • All versions and variants of the Find Familiar spell are mutually exclusive; a character can only have one familiar summoned by any Find Familiar spell at a time, including special summons like Shovel and Scratch, the Raven Gloves spell Summon Quothe the Raven Summon Quothe the Raven, and the additional options granted to a Warlock with Pact of the Chain Pact of the Chain. Casting another version of the spell will dismiss any currently summoned familiar.
  • The Ranger Beast Master feature Summon Companion Summon Companion is separate to Find Familiar, and can be active at the same time.
  • Familiars can drink elixirs and potions by having someone else place elixirs/potions out of their inventory and then have the familiar drink it from the ground by right-clicking them, or by drinking it directly from a companion's inventory as long as the elixir/potion isn't inside a container.
  • Even though familiars can drink elixirs, increasing their Strength serves no purpose since their attacks will always use Dexterity.

Bugs

  • There are many bugs associated with familiars, with many of them not getting proper bonuses to attacks or damage based on their attributes, and some of them not requiring attack rolls for their basic attacks at all. [Needs Verification]
  • Familiars cannot interact with the environment except to examine and attack. Notably, unlike Mage Hand, they cannot be used to explore burrows or press buttons. Familiars can drag objects. This includes placing objects onto vents or moving objects off of traps.
