Unleashes a piercing howl that catches and echoes in victims' minds. While those echoes linger, nightmarish creatures will hear and track them to their source. It can only be used once by a given creature.

Doom Howl is a monster-only ability that inflicts the Howl status on the target; it is smite-targeted, irresistible, and cannot be silenced, meaning the only way to avoid the status to kill or disable any doom hounds you see before they can howl. While the Howl status is active, monsters from the following list will spawn around the player every 2-4 turns[1]:

D Bone dragon.png Bone dragon

D Shadow dragon.png Shadow dragon

2 Shadow demon.png Shadow demon

2 Reaper.png Reaper

2 Tormentor.png Tormentor

1 Tzitzimitl.png Tzitzimitl

These monsters are "real" and do not count as summons. Because of that, they are not susceptible to Aura of Abjuration.

The Howl status effect lasts for 12-18 turns[2]. Drinking a potion of cancellation ends the status early.
