Hey guys,

I love the find familiar but there is no option to cast as a ritual. Solasta already has this option for ritual spells. They dont have the Familiar spell, but detect magic and identify can be cast as a ritual.

I would argue that Find Familiar should be treated as a ritual and use a spell slot. This is the case with the Beast Tamer Ranger.

Agreed. As a drawback, in the case of Find Familiar, it should cost some gold (5e says 10 GP, but I suggest 100 GP. DMs should adjust costs based on actual value of currency in their world).

The ritual version of a spell takes 10 minutes longer to cast than normal. It also doesn't expend a spell slot, which means the ritual version of a spell can't be cast at a higher level.
Let's play test with no use of a spell slot

The point of ritual casting is to NOT waste spell slots. Familiar is supposed to be near useless in normal combat which is not the case with Ranger's pet.

yes i agree, ritual spells should be included in my opinion, and not expend spell slots, wizards used to get a lot more spell slots, im thinking of NWN 1, and i think BG 1&2 i think got a lot more to compared to 5E (and more spell slots the higher inteligence), in 5E D&D in my opinion to get around the low spell slots they included ritual spells. i have also made a post here: https://forums.larian.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Main=93154&Number=713942#Post713942
