Traits

Insubstantial

In ooze form, the Builder takes half damage from any damage source, except force damage and psychic damage. Whenever the Builder takes psychic damage, it loses this trait until the start of its next turn.

Ooze

While squeezing in ooze form, the Builder moves at full speed rather than half speed, it doesn’t take the -5 penalty to attack rolls, and it doesn’t grant combat advantage for squeezing.

Regeneration

While in warforged form, the Builder regains 5 hit points whenever it starts its turn and has at least 1 hit point. When the Builder takes force or psychic damage, the regeneration does not function on the creature’s next turn.
