The burning animation.
Hounds of Balthazar are charmable animals encountered in the Zaishen Menagerie.




  • Once unlocked, the hound will be located in the caves to the northeast (the same location as the Black Moa).
  • This pet cannot be displayed in the Hall of Monuments.
  • This pet is the only animal companion that deals fire damage (instead of piercing or slashing damage).
  • Despite their appearance, they are not immune to burning:
    • The only way to tell if they are on fire is to look at the Pet Control panel.
  • The burning visual effect continues even if the pet is dead.
Bug Bug.Like other animated effects, the hounds sometimes fail to display their flames when entering a new area.
