So I've recently started shifting towards the D&D Beyond sheets and away from Roll20's sheets because they're just so much better. In the campaign I'm DMing one player is a druid: T. In a campaign I'm a player in, I'm also playing a druid: R. We discovered that you can add the Wildshape forms and were thrilled. Everything seems to work fine with one strange exception.
T added Giant Wolf Spider to his list of forms, but the Stealth bonus lists as +5 instead of the accurate +7.
R added Giant Wolf Spider to his list of forms, but the Stealth bonus lists as +7, like its supposed to.
T is an elf druid with 14 dexterity and no proficiency in Stealth.
R is a halfling druid with 18 dexterity but does have proficiency in Stealth.
If the creature has the same proficiency as you and the bonus in its stat block is higher than yours, use the creature’s bonus instead of yours.
My interpretation of this line makes it sound like both T and R should have the same bonus. However after encountering this inconsistency I'm wondering if my understanding of Wild Shape has been wrong all this time. Does R gain the (otherwise mechanically impossible) +7 because he has proficiency in the skill? I think I'm answering my own question here, but I'm just looking for verification that this isn't some kind of bug.
It's a math bug and it's caused in some kind of glitch with how it provides proficiency when interacting with the characters own proficiencies. you may encounter a few other weird little bugs like this unfortunately. They crop up in complex systems unfortunately but if you report it they will do their best to fix it and hopefully stuff they are putting in that are coming will address this and some others.
