On crystal isles, go to the wolf den around 70 45 in cords there's a wolf den, get a argi and grab a high lvl one then fly across the river, get slightly away from the wolf after u drop it then bolą it and shot in its head with tranq darts or crossbow if it's below lvl 100
in the cave of the strong if ur on easy mode and want a high level wolf find a high level, take its implant as u cannot tame it in the cave, revive it, knock it and boom. Well done u just got a high level wolf.
Direwolves are very fast, they have very much health, really good malee and are kinda easy to tame. They are bolable and easy to tranq out, visit the northen Cave Of Strong for a high level, somewhere around 400-600
Highkey the best "first" tame. I'd find a high level moschops tame it get some levels and then go get a wolf. When you find a pack use the moschops to tank all of the other wolves and just bola one. They are easy to ko and aren't hard to tame with prime meat
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
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.
Tamed a lvl 23 I outran and killed like 5 diplos and now my dog is lvl 83 (max level) put a chitin helmet on him and he is legitimately the best tame ever. Ps I killed everything at night and I named my wolf nightstalker he is AWESOME
