I want Vincent to say something before the Den Mother's Wolf Howl goes off but it only works the 1st 2 times. No, I don't really know what I'm doing.

The reason it isn't working is because your multipliers are off. The howl ability is set to be used on the second turn, then every 3rd turn thereafter (2 + 3 * X). The text event is set to be used on the second turn, then every 4th turn thereafter (2 + 4 * X). So you get:

1st turn: Nothing
2nd turn: Start of turn event fires, gives warning about the howl. Enemy chooses action, uses howl.
3rd turn: Nothing.
4th turn: Nothing.
5th turn: Enemy chooses action, uses howl.
6th turn: Start of turn event fires, gives warning about the howl.
7th turn: Nothing.
8th turn: Enemy chooses action, uses howl.
9th turn: Nothing.
10th turn: Start of turn event fires, gives warning about the howl.
11th turn: Enemy chooses action, uses howl.

What happens if you give the troop event the same condition of 2 + 3 * X instead of 2 + 4 * X?

IDK. I'm just a dum dum trying to make a game.

Ok, I got him to say it right before she howls but I want Brent to be able to act so he can stop it. She has AGI 30 and Brent has an AGI of 41. But she still goes 1st sometimes.

Little-by-little, keep improving your projects. That's how you finish them! ;)
Now it's official: My first RPG Maker game released on Steam will be released this year! I am so glad for this achievement and I am so happy to see a lot of gamedevs like me here working on what we love!
