In the ice cave when you first come in like the crawl side if you lure a wolf and walk backwards they can get stuck and can’t escape just tranq it and cryo it out and get a breeding pair get some babies imprinted and just destroy all caves and alphas
the best way to tame dire wolf without trap and separate them from pack by using tapejara. tapejara has the ability to hang on cliff side which make it easy to tame without fight or make them run if it cant catch you.
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.
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.
Direwolves are easily my favorite tame on the island, they are extremely good battle creatures especially in packs. Breeding and imprinting (which I did) as well as leveling them up means you can take on nearly everything. It’s extreme mobility and small size means you can use it for most caves, as well as collecting tons of chitin and meat along the way. This is a 9/10 tame for me, due to its relatively easy taming process (bola then tranq) and its extremely versatile usage.
