an Epic Druid gets animal companions equal to twice his level, even in 3.5?

i looked in the DMG and ELH errata, and they either forgot or something.

what do you think?
*bump*

i guess that is the real version.

that makes epic druids even more uber ;)
In 3.5, druids get one animal companion and upgrade it similar to the way familiars and mounts get upgraded.

PHB 3.5 is the source for the the animal companion ability, not the single paragraph dedicated to the epic druid in DMG 208 (as far as I'm concerned:P ).

I'm guessing they forgot or something, cause you'r supposed to continue the existing ability (+2 HD, +2 natural AC, +2 str/dex and an extra trick every 3 levels). Then again you can go ahead and take one of the animals from the alternative list.
but if there was no official update.... then by RAW you get LOTS of buddies
it's in the errata:

from DMG Errata:

Epic Druid
Dungeon Master’s Guide, page 208
Problem: Druids no longer get multiple animal companions.
Solution: Replace the Animal Companion paragraph with the
following text:
Animal Companion: The epic druid’s animal companion
continues to increase in power. At every three levels higher
than 18th (21st, 24th, 27th, and so on), the companion gains
+2 bonus Hit Dice, its natural armor increases by 2, its
Strength and Dexterity modifiers increase by 1, and it learns
one additional bonus trick.


Airos' Corollary stuff, stuff, stuff, and stuff more stuff don't be a **** okay, if you insist Return of the awesome -- you just can't kill it Everything you need Everything I say is to be taken at face value. Why? Because that's the way it is intended.
no wonder.... i was looking in the Epic Level Handbook errata.

HERE you go.  The DMG errata is the second one on the list.
