Doom Howl is a monster-only ability that inflicts the Howl status on the target; it is smite-targeted and cannot be silenced. Willpower may resist this spell, though at 96 enchantment power, it requires Will+++++ in order to resist 100% of the time.
While the Howl status is active, monsters from the following list will spawn around the player every 2-4 turns:
These monsters are "real" and do not count as summons. Because of that, they are not susceptible to Yara's Violent Unravelling and killing the monster that inflicted the status will not despawn them, but they will grant experience when slain.
The following enemies cast Doom Howl:
Doom hounds can only succeed with Doom Howl once. If it fails due to willpower, the doom hound can continue to cast until it succeeds.
- Prior to 0.30, Doom Howl was not resisted by willpower.
- Prior to 0.28, Doom Howl could call in shadow dragons and shadow demons instead of putrid mouths.
