The game registers Large creatures to be like Minotaurs, Bulettes, Specters and Owlbear/Queen Spider... Doesn't work on single Humanoid, Hag, Druids or smaller beasts.
A bugbear is a "medium" sized creature. It is bigger then a dwarf, yes, but the creature itself (bugbear) doesn't count as "large".
It is a "medium" sized creature same as a dwarf actually. The only "small" races at the moment are "halfling".
Nevertheless this feature doesn't even check the size of the ranger (dwarf)!
Only the size of the attacking monster: "If a Large or bigger (then "large") creature attacks you..."
I tried this on 08/02/2021 Dwarf against Bugbear who is clearly much bigger then a dwarf. removed armour to get hit by him and still no retaliation this may only work if enemy attacking is listed as bigger/giant
Is it still large or bigger for halfling rangers?
