Howling

Notes

  • Unlike other summons that start with the gumball, such as Sorcerer's Aze Cat or Puppeteer's puppet, Howling does not revert to item form on death. Once killed, it is gone for the remainder of the run.
  • When summoned, Howling inherits stats from the main gumball. A common strategy for maximizing Howling's stats:
    1. Bring a Werewolf Potion into the maze
    2. Upon entering the floor where Howling will be summoned (1F on short runs or events) use all three charges of the potion immediately.
    3. Spend as many rounds as possible clearing the floor - manually flip all tiles (leaving monsters until last), use scrolls or consumables, etc. - to get as much of the potion's effect as possible.
    4. If available, cast Electrostatic Field followed by either Bless or Blade of Ruin
    5. Use Oriental Paper Cutting.
  • Note: Reflection damage applies to Howling as it would to your gumball, so the method above is not appropriate in mazes with monsters that reflect damage.
