# Skill Activation time Recharge time Description

  • Players are still able to use their glider.
  • The Super Sniffer skill seems to serve no purpose since the paths it's supposed to reveal are always visible in faint gray starting at the gates of the kennel, leading to nearby mosquito eggs.
  • The transformation has no duration limit, but it is automatically removed if the player goes too far away from the kennel, indicated by gaining the effect "Strength of the Pack!".png Transform Fading that makes their model semi-transparent. Returning near the kennel removes the fading effect.
Despite Danador's dialogue, only players that have completed the heart are able to be transformed into sylvan hounds.
