Getting a TLC patch in March 2018 to add howl that will initiate the pack bonus for 5 minutes, will be able to sniff out players or creatures with less than 50% health, and will be able to detect explorer notes. Like so people can see!
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.
These wolves spawn only in packs and are 1000% hostile to everything they encounter quite wandering around. Use a Fabricated Sniper Rifle to weaken and get killed the weather wolves you don't want to tame, and letting the 145-150 Alphas survive. Then help the Alpha win against that Mammoth that killed it's pack, with your rifle. Bola and tame it after.
This is my favorite creature in the game, they are strong, fast, have decent hp and stamina.They are so easy to find and tame ,you dont even need a saddle to ride them.they gather pelt,hide,chitin,meat so good that you just have to get one!
