Possible Appearance in Mondstadt?

Genshin - Rifthound Description
It is hinted that the Rifthound enemies may appear in the Wolvendom and Springvale areas of Mondstadt, as Genshin Impact's official Version 2.2 Preview says the following about the Thundercraven Rifthound:


Once upon a time, they ran riot across the continent, but they went extinct for a time due to resistance and mass hunts. Recently, however, they have re-emerged. The pack of black wolves that now threaten Springvale and Wolvendom are such creatures.
Source: Version 2.2 Preview

As of the first phase of Version 2.2, there have been no Rifthounds appearing anywhere in Wolvendom or Springvale.

Rifthound Attack Patterns

Forward Strike

Genshin - Thundercraven Rifthound
The Rifthound was shown to pounce at the player in a forward strike, dealing elemental damage corresponding to their type.

Applies Corrosion to Characters

Genshin - Rifthound - Corrosion
Once a Rifthound's attacks hits an active character, that character as well as other characters in the party will continuously be affected by the corrosion status. Affected characters will lose HP every second while affected by corrosion. This effect cannot be negated by a character's shield.

Elemental Devourer State

Genshin - Rifthound Elemental Devourer
When an Elemental Attack damages a Rifthound, it will enter the Elemental Devourer State which will lessen their resistance to the Element that hit them but allows them to fight more fiercely.

All Rifthound Enemy Information

What are Rifthounds?

Genshin - Rifthounds
The Rifthounds and Rifthound Whelps are wolf-like creatures from the abyss introduced in Version 2.2. They were made by a mysterious entity called ''Gold''. They can inflict the ''corrosion'' status on their targets.

What is the Corrosion Status?

Genshin - Corrosion Status Above the HP bar
When a Rifthound attacks, it can apply the ''corrosion'' status on the active character including the rest of the party, which can stack and ignore shields. Corroded characters gradually lose HP.

※ Characters on the field are at risk

Active characters attacking Rifthounds are at risk of being defeated via the corrosion. The corrosion stops when non-active characters have less than 15% HP.
