Good ol Time Hounds

In short: Why do Time Hounds have speed 130? Plasma/Nether Hounds start appearing at same levels and those are 120. They all give same exp. Or would give if I ever fought Time Hounds (or Plasma Hounds without rStun for that matter). Time Hounds would still kill players who spam random teleportations even at speed 120.

Is it just because it's always been like this?

Yeah, Thraal. I don't actually have a .. dog in this fight. Wouldn't engage Time Hounds even if they were dropped to speed 120.

But they should give a little more exp than Plasma/Nether Hounds (both of them already very nasty) imo. Again, if someone is willing to fight those.

tbh i quite like time hounds. they die fairly easily and give a ton of XP if you hide in a corner and wait for them. And if you TS into a room of time hounds, next turn you can TS out, drink a RL, eat a mushroom of vigor, and still be alive. NOT the same for plasma hounds.



obviously nothing compares to my preferred Zs, ethereal hounds. BAGS AND BAGS OF XP!
