The Cu Sîth is an enormous, otherworldly hound said to haunt the Scottish Highlands. Roughly the size of a cow or large calf, the Cu Sîth was said to be dark green in colour with shaggy fur and a long braided or curled tail. The Cu Sîth was feared as a harbinger of death and would appear to bear away the soul of a person to the afterlife.
According to legend, the creature was capable of hunting silently, but would occasionally let out three terrifying barks that could be heard for long distances, including by ships at sea. This was said to be a warning to farmers to lock up their women, lest the beast abduct them and take them to a fairy mound to supply milk for fairy children.

The Howling Cu Sith's non-midnight hour counterpart is the Cu Sith.
The Howling Cu Sith has been known to occasionally drop one or more of the following items as ghost loot:
If you have the snowfall stat in your setup (because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat on it), the howling cu sith may occasionally and randomly drop you a snowflake as loot. Because these snowfall-driven drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, snowflake loot drops are not specifically included in the list above.
If you have the mockery stat in your setup (through the talent tree bonus or because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 mocktails added to other loot drops from the howling cu sith. Because these mockery drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the mocktails are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible mocktails that may be dropped is on the mocktails page.
Mockery stat drops can be distinguished from a normal loot drop as follows:
A standard loot drop of a mocktail 5x Cherry bomb A mockery stat caused] loot drop of a mocktail 5 Devil driver
Vintage connoisseur loot
If you have the vintage connoisseur stat in your setup (through an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 bottles of a non-Nessy's loot potion or of Shadetouch blue or Shadetouch purple added to other loot drops from the howling cu sith. Because these connoisseur drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the non-Nessy's loot potions involved are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible bottles that can be dropped is found on the non-Nessy's loot potions page.
Both normal drops of a particular non-Nessy's loot potion and connoisseur drops of a particular loot potion show the same way in your journal:
16 x Shadetouch purple (10 bonus loot)
If you want to attract a howling cu sith, use any of the Nessy's family of bait (Nessy's Golden Reserve, Nessy's platinum edition, or Nessy's supreme edition) or Shadetouch purple, Shadetouch green, or Shadetouch blue as bait.
Using these baits is not a guarantee that you will attract a howling cu sith, but except for a few very rare occasions, these baits are the only bait that attracts them at all.
(Note: Shadetouch orange does not have the same ability to attract a howling cu sith as the other members of the Shadetouch family.)
