Useful Info

Hell hounds are dangerous demonic canines, flaming beasts that arrive in packs and breathe fire (3d10). Fortunately they are almost unheard of outside of the Abyss, Pandemonium, and the Hells, and by the time you get there, they're nearly harmless. However, if you see them outside of those places and they're not part of the Lair:8 vault, that's almost always a sign that Azrael is near.

Tips & Tricks

Conservation and fire resistance help. As with many fire-themed monsters, hitting them with cold damage works particularly well.
