Book of Vile Darkness
Disruptive Attack (Su): A corrupted wolf deals an additional 1 point of vile damage when it touches uncorrupted, living, corporeal nonoutsiders.
Trip (Ex): A corrupted wolf that hits with a bite attack can attempt to trip the opponent as a free action without making a touch attack or provoking an attack of opportunity. If the attempt fails, the foe cannot react to trip the corrupted wolf.
Fast Healing (Ex): A corrupted wolf regains lost hit points at the rate of 1 per round. Fast healing does not restore hit points lost from starvation, thirst, or suffocation, and it does not allow a corrupted wolf to regrow or reattach lost body parts.
Scent (Ex): A corrupted wolf can detect approaching enemies, sniff our hidden foes, and track by sense of smell.
Skills: A corrupted wolf receives a +4 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking by scent.
A pack's favorite tactic is to send a few wolves against a foe's front while the rest of the pack attacks from the flanks or rear.
