When fighting a direwolf one should always try and keep distance. Their high land speed makes them very dangerous and always keep alert of your surrondings wolves work largly in packs and these are no different. Dont let yourself get flanked or you'll quickly end up as flank steak
Strongly suggest using an argent to carry and seperate the pack from your targat.
tip dont get the high ground and expect them to be gone as soon as you do true fact wolves can wait for their prey to come down for a long time or if they are smart enough figure out your high ground schematic
