Vicious and lightning fast, the Dire Wolf is a great all-around mount for adventuring and attacking. I highly recommended to bring packs of Dire Wolves for any hostile situation. Whether it be kill Alphas, or raid bases, it's size, agility, and damage make for a deadly beast.
Easily one of the best combat mounts in the game. It's cheap to tame and pretty powerful, and there's no level requirement for a saddle. Make sure you tame more than one though, so you can get the mate boost
