'''Nix-Hounds''' are insectoid creatures added by the [[SR:Nix-Hound|Nix-Hound]] [[SR:Creation Club|Creation]]. Originally native to Morrowind, they have been introduced to the island of [[DBSkyrim:Solstheim|Solstheim]] in recent years. For more information, see the [[Lore:Nix-Hound|lore article]].
Nix-Hounds drop a sample of [[SR:Nix-Hound Meat|Nix-Hound Meat]] when killed.

{{Creature Summary
|loc=[[DBSkyrim:Revus Sarvani|Revus Sarvani]]'s camp or [[DBSkyrim:The Retching Netch|The Retching Netch]]
A pet [[Skyrim:Nix-Hound (creature)|Nix-Hound]] can be purchased from [[DBSkyrim:Revus Sarvani|Revus Sarvani]] (or [[DBSkyrim:Geldis Sadri|Geldis Sadri]] if Revus is already dead) as part of the related quest.
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.
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.
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 [[DBSkyrim: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 [[Skyrim:Ingredients#Dragonborn|Dragonborn ingredient]] can be gifted to you - but not ingredients added either through [[SR:Dawnguard Items#Alchemy|Dawnguard]] or [[SR:Hearthfire Items#Ingredients|Hearthfire]].
