Strategy Writeup

This boss is accompanied by lots of hounds. Don't let them backstab you when you focus on the boss.

Simple Strategy if you can one-shot the small dogs; The Alpha (Boss) Will barely attack the player if you're not too close so when he charges you, dodge to the side, and take 1 or 2 steps back to be at medium-range. Then ru***** down while he stares at you, and howls. A few seconds after howling, make sure to turn around and quickly take out the small dogs, and dodge the boss' charge again. Keep repeating this, and you should have him down really fast.

 

Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Phase 1
Howl and summon ads: It will howl and summon ads Use the opportunity to fire at the boss. Kill the ads as soon as you see them
Charge and strike: It will charge at you and bite you Dodge to either side and fire at it.

 

 

Maul Lore

Maul is the alpha of the pack. The pack did not attack the Houndmaster because of the Control Rod on his forehead which allowed him to control the hounds. Once broken, the hounds were free and Maul attacked and killed him as a result.

      My favorite part of this fight was at the end when my character was standing in a pile of dead hounds and said: "Wow... That was RUFF"

        Maul is female, as mentioned by the hound master. I just wanted to point that out because it says "he" in the strategy.

          on every page it says "if you die" and doesn't explain what happens if you don't die. why even put that if you aren't going to explain the alternative?

              100% truly an optional boss. You can sneak past. If you don’t make noise and don’t wake the pack then you don’t fight. Just did it.

                could be a bug: I destroyed the Master's device, but the Maul didn't attack the Master neither do the mongrels, they only attack me. and the Master just stood there doing nothing other than spasming, I had to kill him myself. but still got the Control Rod.

                  If you destroy the rod and allow maul to kill the houndmaster, you will get both rewards after completing the encounter

                        I don't know that it's a bug or not, but I think his weakness is the fire. I mean, not a fire weapon, but a bonfire. When I was staying near a bonfire, then Maul didn't want to charge on me. He just was staying near and didn't attack :D Just try it out, maybe it's not a bug :)

                          Completely optional, you can just stealth and walk through the boss room. Also the hound master will sell you jerky
