any items within budget and reason
Okay, I just bought an Amulet of Translocation as a "get out of jail free card". Other than that, it's mundane items.
What's your opinion on a Druid's animal companion and metal armor? Per the rules, Druids are limited to nonmetal armor, but there's no such limitation an animal companions. Right now, I got his dog leather barding, but I have enough for breastplate if you're fine with it.
My plan for the next two levels is to have Yylris stand back and use his bow while his riding dog does most of the melee fighting. He might summon the occasional animal to fight, too. Once he can shapeshift, he'll jump into the fray more, too.
