Chief Paroxysmus Swamp Dragon

The peerless encounter Chief Paroxysmus has a special loot drop called the Paroxysmus’ Swamp Dragon. It comes in statue form and can be locked down in your house for display. Once you double click the statue it turns into a bonded mount that comes with a permanent set of Dragon Barding applied, that grants a 12% damage reduction to it’s rider in PvM combat. Damage reduction does not count in PvP. It cannot be returned to statue form and will remain your pet.

Dark Wolf

The Dark Wolf is the Evil cousin of the Dire Wolf. Like the Dire Wolf, the Dark Wolf likes to attack Good or innocent creatures. Oddly enough the Dire Wolf highlights red and the Dark Wolf highlights grey. The Dark Wolf is about as strong and tough as a Dire Wolf.

The Dark Wolf is also a familiar summon for Necromancers. Necromancers of  skill (60 Necromancy/60 Spirit Speak) can summon these fierce wolves to do their bidding.The Dark Wolf Familiar will attack the foes that its master attacks, and as an extra bonus it will allow its master to tame any wolf he meets in his travels.
