    Or at VERY least explain why they were removed all those years ago...

    Still, to this day a few remain crippled, but alive in captivity:

    I tamed her sooooo many years ago, when I was building a pack of hell hounds when pack instinct was introduced (2002ish?). She lives in the stables of LS, a shard I long ago abandoned, her resists, sadly all bugged at 0, but I come take her out for a walk every now and then, to rekindle those fond memories of yesteryear...

    Basically for anyone who doesn't know, they were 2 slot hell hounds that spawned in a variety of different shades of red (Their cousin creature the predator hell cat still spawns in rare colors from time to time) with maybe 20% better stats, and a +50% to damage for other pack members rather than the standard +25%.

    They disappeared around AOS, for no given or known reason.

    I've been making posts about this for years, but since I had been doing the same for filled book cases, I guess its could pay to keep bringing it up.

    Bring back the hellhound pack leaders!

  3. those are hellcats, not hellhounds.

    i think the hellhound leaders were scrapped because they were bugged.

    While we're on the subject of getting things back that were removed for stupid or unknown reasons: How about HCI on shields?

    There are 2 colors of hellhounds, but neither are leaders.

    Oh yea, and I want the leader back too. And I also wish Hellhounds were so ugly in SA, but nothing I can do about that I suppose.

    Packleaders don't spawn in the dojo. Hellcats do everywhere. Unless something changed recently.

    Just to confirm try and confirm this is not the case, I just spawned around 300 dogs (and lored them each), in the dojo, and none were oddly colored, or with PL stats. Also I killed them pretty extensively during the various TOT's and while I DID see the different colored cats, I never saw a PL colored hound.

    I still have to believe they don't spawn, color, or stats wise.

    Yea, I've killed tons of hellhounds making a pack too, and no leaders spawn.

    I've been off & will try for more later. But I have been working both to try & get you stats. Here's the Hellcat stats. There is a diff in HP in all the brighter colored cats I spawned, some more HP (up to I think 145 it was), some a cpl points less. But there is a noticeable HP difference. As soon as I get more time, I'll get a Hound pic. They do spawn there, & last one I saw was about 2 wks ago. They are very few & far between when I have seen them I will say that. I'll lore when I either spawn or see one for you guys.

    Well, of course I never argued that cats exist, I see them all the time, but I personally over the course of the last few tot events have probably killed upwards of 2000-3000 hell hounds, and I never saw one with a different color. I just can't believe I'm that unlucky.

    But hey, I'd love to be proven wrong.
