Howl is definitely very valuable. I used it to some very good effect in my last game (before getting murdered by Gorlim, my own fault for not teleporting away though). However, Howl is in the same book as Maim Foe, so it's not really pertinent to this analysis (i.e. how having to wait for the game to generate the second book, rather than buying it in town makes the early game Blackguard more intense).
