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.....
Taming a Direwold won't be easy becomes they come in packs and can usually be with other creatures like daemons. All you need is a argent and grab one of the wolves but make a trap first before doing this. And bola it, tranq it or club it and give it its preferred kibble or any kind of meat.
What I usually do is I make a boat and expand it and a large gate with fence around it, not walls. I then go to tundra, park near an iceberg,place bear traps on the ice burg, shoot wolves so they come towards the iceberg and then shoot them with tranqs.
