When breeding wolves you do not have to continually feed the pups for 4h and 10mins. You can feed them up to 3h and make sure that all tribe members are not on the server. However make sure that the wolf had the maximum amount of food in him/her and so the same to the trough. This maybe helpful to new players who can't stay up and wait that long. Hope this helps :)
If you tame more than one dire wolf,you can use their pack skill.You have to ride on your best dire wolf then use the skill.It is called Pack Leader for the leader and Pack Mate for the other dire wolves.
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.
