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.....
Make a little trap carry with argy ( it can still attack your argy so give it high health ) then drop in a trap.
No need to worry about the pack just pick the leader or the one you want.
Once you have three you get a pack bonus and a leader bonus for highest level wolf
