"Death Hounds are used as guardians by vampires. How they came to be is unknown, but their bite is as cold as the grave."

Death Hounds are undead creatures that serve as the pets and guard dogs for vampires.

AppearanceEdit

Death Hounds resemble large, muscular dogs with glowing red eyes. Their black, hairless skin appears to be necrotizing, with several patches of black muscle tissue exposed. This necrotizing is most evident in their faces, with a gaping nasal cavity in place of a nose, and a lipless mouth filled with dozens of sharp, jagged teeth, of which there are far more than any other canine. All death hounds wear heavy iron collars around their necks.

CombatEdit

A death hound's primary form of attack is its bite, which deals frost damage. However, they also emit a permanent frost cloak that drains stamina from any enemy of theirs in melee range during combat.

Upon death, a death hound collar and dog meat and, occasionally, small amounts of gold or other minor treasures may be on their bodies.

Named Death HoundsEdit

  • Death hounds level is capped at 5 while huskies are capped at 25.
  • Death Hounds are similar in appearance to Hell Hounds from Arena, having a dark coloration and having pure red eyes. Though have different affinity's, one with Ice and the other with Fire.
