      The "extra cosmetic options" are more piercings, not anything crazy awesome like antlers, claws, or a tail.

        "Wildheart Barbarians have access to extra cosmetic options in the Character Creator depending on their choice of Bestial Heart."

        This is false. You do have extra cosmetic options, but it isn't reliant to their choice. You can choose any of the 5 no matter which one you pick.

          I started as a Wild Magic barbarian because chaos can be fun. Until I hit level 6 and the implications of Animal Aspects sunk in.

          Eagle + Stallion + Fleetfingers gloves is like being a kid again: dive, then dash and jump to reset for the next round. *Become* the ranged attack, and get temporary HP for volunteering to be a cannonball.

            Karlach build I use. Wildheart (tiger 8)/rogue thief 4. Start as a strength build but in act 3 you can armor of agility, a finesse two handed glaive, and gauntlets of ogre power. Respec into dex, have 18 dex, GWM, PAM, and resilient dex to round the 17 dex to 18. You have 23 strength from gauntlets, gets doubled to attacks vs bleeding due to tiger aspect, you can sneak attack since the glaive is a finesse weapon, PAM gives reaction sneak attacks, and you can use bonus actions dashes with the lightning charge boots. Her AC is currently 21 with zero boosts, she has crazy high str, dex, and con saves. She’s just great. Works even better on a PC too.

                Do Subclass Features apply only if going with that class, without multiclassing? I respecced Karlach at level 11 and dipped 9 levels into Wildheart, taking Bear Aspect same as I did before before the respec process. However the extra carrying capacity isn't applying. After it reached level 9 I started taking Fighter levels. What gives? My Aspect and Heart are not the same animal but that doesn't matter since even before the respect they weren't the same animal.

                  How can Wildheart Barbarians have access to additional cosmetics if you can only edit your character's appearance before starting the game, but Wildheart is only available upon reaching level 3?

                  Do the cosmetics get applied automatically, or is there a way to edit your character in-game that neither I nor Google search knows about?

                    Tiger rage plus tiger aspect gives you an unlimited source of bleeding and a huge to hit bonus versus bleeding, combine with booals benediction and you get free advantage on bleeding. Other than throwing build tavern brawler cheese this is the strongest barbarian damage build I’ve found so far.

                      The infamous bearbarian build lives on. Multiclass Bear Heart with Circle of the Moon for probably the tankiest build in D&D.
