DnD 5E Rothe Monster

All zoologists, of every size and shape! Welcome to my spellbook! We’re going to be looking at the 5e Rothe Monster today. The deep rothe monster has been covered in an earlier article. However, this one is a more superficial variant. This monster can be found in volo’s Guide to Monsters. It provides 50 experience points for a kill . Rothe, a herd animal, is a type of bison. They were once the main livestock for humans in farren’s north. There’s also the deep Rothe, which can be found under the dark and drought areas. However, Rothe resembles a musk-oxen. They are pretty awesome, but larger herd animals would be a better way to view them. Let’s now take a look at the stats.

Table of Contents


It is a monster of the dnd 5e Rothe. The AC is 12 and the hit points are 15 calculated by adding 4 to 2d10. It can travel at 30 feet.

  • Type, Large Beast Unaligned
  • AC: 12
  • HP: 15(2d10+4)
  • Speed: 30ft

You’ll be amazed at the statistics of its strength. It has +4 Modifier, which adds to its strength. Additionally, it boasts a decent constitution with a +2 modifier. Other than that, stats for beasts are average.

  • STR: 18(+4)
  • DEX: 10(+0)
  • CON: 14(+2)
  • INT: 2(-4)
  • WIS: 10(+0)
  • CHA: 4(-3)

Take a look at senses right now. You’ll notice a darkvision of up to 30ft and passive perception of 10, which is not too impressive. Challenge 1/4 (50% XP). You can charge it as well.

Additional Charge

If it is moving 20 feet towards a target and then hits it with the gore attack, it does 7 more piercing damage. This can be calculated using 2d6. This is pretty cool. Although many larger animals can do this, it is still quite impressive. Let’s have a look at the actions of this animal.

Take Action

A Rothe can perform a gore attack. The Rothe is a melee weapon attack with 6 hits which are great. It can hit one target at a time and deal seven piercing damages per hit. This is calculated by rolling 1d6 + 4.

  • Attack with a melee weapon: +6 to hit
  • Reach 5ft
  • One target
  • Hit: 7 (1d6+4) Piercing Damage.

I really like the Rothe. It’s best to be used as background characters. It’s hard to think of any quests that would be focused on him.
