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.
Can not say enough how great these are not low lvl not mid just all round... there be you best mates and even when you have all the rest you will keep coming back to dire wolf... only surpassed by quetz... get them early and keep there lvl up. build base round them for protecting and lvl..
Take the. In caves for chitin, north for fur and organic..
To knock them out shoot from distances then when there close enough to eat your face boiler and keep shooting.....
If you find yourself taming a direwolf, you just made your life on ARK just that much easier, they are great at harvesting almost anything from bodies, make sure to get a pack of these to defend your base or to farm resources, a mate boosted pack is a very strong way to clear almost any Dino.
