They will also pursue you if you are sufficiently hurt. (The threshold seems to be about 50%.)

On very rare occasion I will step into a room of hounds, take a couple rounds of breaths, and then back into the hallway to finish them one by one. Light and dark hounds are good early candidates for this, earth hounds are okay later. Inertia hounds practically beg for it. Vague rule of thumb: you need to be able to take a dozen or two breaths safely, be able to kill a hound in a couple blows, and have a corner close to the room.
