Prerequisites: Witch level 4th, witch’s familiar class feature.
Benefit: A witch’s familiar gains the ability to take on a much larger size temporarily. As a standard action the witch can transform her familiar, giving it the form of an appropriate animal companion of the same type for 1 minute per witch level. This duration does not need to be consecutive, but it must be spent in 1-minute increments.
While in this form, the familiar functions as if it were an animal companion gained through the druid’s nature bond class ability. The witch’s effective druid level is equal to her witch level –3 for determining the abilities of her animal companion, and the animal companion-form familiar must take the familiar companion archetype while in its companion form. Damage is transferred between the companion form and familiar forms, and if the witch or her companion-form familiar fall unconscious, this transformation immediately ends.
