Adding a detailed description of how the scrounging ability works.
 
The nix-hound is essential, and will not engage in combat. Its main function is to carry items, and it has a carry weight of 75 and it will follow you even if you already have another pet following you. You can instruct it to wait at a city, wait at its current location, wait at your house, or to carry items. It can also be summoned using a [[SR:Teleport Pet: Nix-Hound|teleportation spell]]. The nix-hound cannot be detected by Detect Dead or Detect Life.
===Scrounging===
IfThe followingpet you,nix-hound has an ability itthat will occasionally give you a random [[SR:Ingredients|ingredient]]{{vn|need full list}}. When this happens, you will receive a message saying, ''"Nix-Hound found something..."'' and the ingredient will be added to your inventory.
 
This ability will start working as soon as the creation has been activated - you can receive items from the hound even before you have purchased it{{vn|See bugs}}. Four to eight hours of game time after becoming active, you will get your first ingredient. Thereafter, every 16 to 25 hours of game time you have an 80% chance of again getting an ingredient.
If following you, it will occasionally give you a random [[SR:Ingredients|ingredient]]{{vn|need full list}}. When this happens, you will receive a message saying, ''"Nix-Hound found something..."''
 
The ingredients will be randomly chosen from two leveled lists appropriate to the area you are currently in - the hound distinguishes between being either in Solstheim, or not. For example, you can get [[DB:Ash Hopper Jelly|Ash Hopper Jelly]] while in Solstheim, but not while in mainland Skyrim. Other than that, any [[SR:Ingredients|base game ingredient]] or [[DB:Ingredients|Dragonborn ingredient]] can be gifted to you - but not ingredients added either through [[SR:Dawnguard Items#Alchemy|Dawnguard]] or [[SR:Hearthfire Items#Ingredients|Hearthfire]].
