These things are great scouts and have amazing damage for their size. Be careful when taming. Try to trap them so they cant hit you or escape when taming. Always make sure you have stamina on them as they dont move fast when winded.
The direwolf is a great early to midgame mount for anyone who is able to tame them.Whil a you may think that there is just one always watch out mine times out of ten there is a pack.If you are able to tame up one that will become one of your most trustworthy mount even at low levels.
Great tame for scorched Earth. Tough enough to kill small enemies and hunt small game, quick enough for hunting and fleeing. Jumps are very useful. The howel can be used to help your friends locate you. Can literally be used as an attack dog, and fetch you things if you use the right whistles. Eventually will have alpha boost. And it is a great pet doggie.
One of my favorites.
Comparing this to a sabre is a joke. I tamed both 150 sabre and wolf at the same time and my wolf can take on so much more and surprisingly enough I find the wolf more tanky even though it has no saddle and the melee is just so much better. As well as its so much easier to tame in the first place, half the time the sabretooth dies trying to tranq it.
The easiest way to tame a Wolfe on the island or Center is via raft built in a U shape, pre built walls to enclose it. Bola it n tranq. Starve in your way home, enclose boat if you'd like extra protection
