Starting Location: On the Prowl
Go to Scrap Boulevard and fight the Wrath Hound
Scrap Boulevard is located down a short path to the right of quest giver Wymer. The Wrath Hound can be found at the far end of the area (fixed location, see map below).
It’s a little tougher than the average enemy you’ve encountered, but a few blasts of Blizzard will stagger it quickly. Once you get it to around 70% health, it will flee. This cannot be avoided.
Chase the Wrath Hound and talk to Wymer
Run after the dog, towards the entrance of Scrap Boulevard, and you’ll be hailed over by Wymer. He tells you he’s chased the dog down a new path which now opens up. Kneel under the gate with the yellow tape and proceed onwards.
Fight the Wrath Hound for the second time
Go down the short path and you’ll encounter the dog again. Most of its health will have been restored, but the same tactics as earlier will be valid. Using Ice Spells such as Blizzard are its weakness. When its staggered, switch to Cloud and press to trigger his Punisher Mode which deals more damage.
Return to Wymer
Once Wrath Hound is defeated, return to Wymer to claim your reward of an Elixir. He stands just outside the entrance to Scrap Boulevard.
This finishes On the Prowl side quest in Final Fantasy VII Remake.
