@allenshock1raging controversy on FB…claim made that Prof Bonus added to all ability checks incl. initiative. The proficiency bonus is added to an ability check only if you're using a skill or tool proficiency or a special feature.

@dantedipasqualeDo Dragonborn Druids retain breath&resist in Wildshape? Can a caster use 2 spells in surprise round with the ready action? The Ready action is intended to be used after initiative has been rolled. Same for the other "Actions in Combat" options.
