You have touched a willing beast, you’ll use your action for the precise duration of this spell and therefore the action has got to see through this beast’s eyes, ready to hear whatever it hears and also will still do so until you’ll use your action for returning to your normal senses.
Although perceiving through the beast’s senses, you’ll gain the advantages of any of the special senses which were possessed by that specific creature, albeit you’re blinded and also deafened to your own surroundings.
Beast sense was a divination spell that allowed a caster to use the senses of a willing creature.
Beast Sense 5e
- Casting Time: 1 action
- Range: Touch
- Components: S
- Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour
The caster gained any special senses possessed by the target creature. The caster was ready to see and listen to but wasn’t ready to do so from their own body. The spell lasted for an hour unless prompted to finish early or if there was a loss of concentration.

Beast Bond might be wont to determine information from a beast, that might otherwise not be available. Again, an equivalent group as above, the druid used this spell on a horse that she had calmed down once they came across the location of an ambush, where the wagon was attacked and therefore the people missing. The horse was ready to communicate effectively enough to offer them some additional information about what happened.
The pertinent wording is “Each beast is additionally considered fey.” So things that affect beasts or fey will affect it. Conjure fey, which also allows you to urge beasts, doesn’t have that wording, therefore the conjured critter would be fey and unaffected by beast-specific things. Likewise, find familiars and find steeds familiars and steeds aren’t beasts, but celestials, fiends, or fey, so I do not think RAW they will be suffering from beast-specific things.
The 5E rage acts tons just like the 4E version in terms of the mechanics of how often one can rage and when it ends. one among the great things about not tying it to rounds is that it lightens the cognitive load of players trying to work out whether or not now’s an honest time to enter a rage.
I’m not getting to check out everything that gets added at higher levels, a minimum of not during this post. I hope this helps illustrate a number of the cool things about the 5E beast sense also as a number of the areas to be wary of, especially for DMs. One last item, however. During the planning of 5E, there was some mention eager to make ability scores important again. One area within the barbarian class where that comes up is with the 18th level barbarian class ability called Indomitable Might. This ability allows the player to substitute in their Strength score if the entire for a Strength check is a smaller amount than their score.
