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.
As the name implies they are the hounds commonly found in fiery dungeons. They have a Hit point based fireball. At full strength they do around 15 points of damage. Individually they are not too much of a problem, but unfortunately they are never alone. Hell Hounds spawn in groups of 5-8 and attack as a single group. Attacking one of the Hounds will make the entire pack attack you. In this sense they can be very dangerous, as a group of fighters can quickly be overwhelmed as each warrior is taken down individually.
The Hell Hound Leader is a stronger version of the normal Hell Hound, and can usually be found in the company of a pack of the normal kind. It requires a bit more taming to tame them and they will take up 2 control slots.
