It's smart to either build a taming pen or use an argy to knock theses guys out. If you use the pen, you'll have to kite it there,so it's safer to use the argy. The higher levels are also worth the wait.
I think this creatures are too strong... my friend and me see a group of wolfs (we play on ps4) one lvl 140 another lvl 145 (on ps4 is max level of wild dinos 150) we bola all of the 4 wolfs, kill the lowlevels and tame the good ones. After tame we have a women and a men of wolfs (lvl210 and lvl214) and without more skilling they make 654 damage!!!!!! I think the Direwolfs must be not bolable. they opopopopop fithing dinos and very easy to tame. i hope you learn about this tipp and rate 🔼 this to other players see this (we have over 6 wolfs (breeded) and he are verrry strong) (tip: tame so many you can)
im not sure if others are experiencing this, but on mobile whenever i knock out a wolf and move too far away from it while its unconscious, the whole creature disappears forever. just.. straight up ceases to exist. be careful mobile users
