Domestication[edit | edit source]
Taming[edit | edit source]
Requires Taming Tier 2 Skill
Tamed with prime meat and bolas. Injure the wolf down to below 20% (actual figure TBC) and then entrap it with your bola. Your bola will entrap for only 1 minute and 45 seconds, when the entrap effect wears off you will have to injure the wolf to below 20% health again and entrap once more for further feeding. The wolf will regenerate its health quickly after a certain time if not injured again. Having friends nearby to attack with bows (great choice as you can do strong shots or weak shots if needed). The delay in swapping between bola and bow makes having at least one friend nearby very beneficial.
To feed the wolf for taming, your prime meat must be in the very last hotkey slot which is bound by default as the zero key '0'. Approach the wolf's head from its rear with its back nearest to you, not its feet. There is a very small spot in which the game will tell you that you can feed the wolf. If you approach from the front then the wolf will bite you. Feeding is every 30 seconds and if you're quick, you can feed three times per entrapment. With taming bonuses you may only need to feed 5 bones to a level 2-4 wolf.
Once tamed and named, place meat in the inventory and a tier 2 saddle and you are ready to ride and hunt with your new wolf friend. Wolves seem to also eat rotten meat, data needed to show if the feed effect is lesser or not.
Utility[edit | edit source]
Can be ridden for faster and safer transport, level up weight, stamina and attack. Can be a combat pack horse if you only level up weight, but for safe freight the horse is much better for weight. Can also be set to aggressive and without a saddle to act as defense while you harvest. When riding you get a significant Hypothermal Insulation Buff.
Breeding[edit | edit source]
You can Breed Wolves in the following biomes: Eastern Tropics, Western Temperate, Eastern Temperate, Western Tropics, Eastern Tundra, Western Tundra, Equatorial, Polar, High Desert, Low Desert.
Acceptable temperatures for Wolf mating and offspring are between 16c and 34c.
Combat[edit | edit source]
The wolf has a significant knock back effect, be wary of fighting near cliff edges or water. Two wolves attacking together can make it very difficult to retaliate due to aiming difficulties and constantly being knocked off target or out of range . Lure it into water to slow its speed, Head shots work well.

Notes[edit | edit source]
