Defeating a Twisted Hound with a tome of binding equipped. If you defeat a hound with both a tome of binding and a Myers sampling kit equipped you will collect samples rather than bind it. Kinak says this is deliberate.

The hound collapses into a pile of dust in moments. You call out with ancient words from the tome you carry and gather the hound's energies.

You trap a spectral echo of the hound within the pages of the tome, feeling exhausted afterward.

If you defeat multiple hounds in one fight, the message is:

The hounds collapse into piles of dust in moments. You call out with ancient words from the tome you carry and gather one hound's energies.

You trap a spectral echo of the hound within the pages of the tome, feeling exhausted afterward.

Notes

If you have two or three hounds summoned, this technique also blocks Etheric techniques.

Defeating a Horrific Spider after summoning three hounds lets you learn the Unleash Spider technique.

Enhances Call to Feast.

Some encounters allow you to set free bound hounds; doing this erases one instance of this technique permanently.
