The Direwolf is a more powerful version of the wolf.Direwolves are an aggressive Tier 6 mob.Can be skinned to obtain Tier 6 Robust Hide. A Direwolf has the rare chance to drop a Direwolf Pup or a Book for Fame. Dire wolf is one of the fastest mounts tier 6 with out any special ability to use.

Direwolves is easy to farm, but need to be careful for players, always have the mount out and no matter what, if a player appears click on the mount and leave. Always be careful for ambush too. Dead bodies is a good idea for ambush and really uncommon so you need to watch your steps.Direwolf is a solo mob to farm, you can farm it with friends but the chance to get a pup is even low than normal to get it solo.

Solo Equipment (Mine Build for Direwolves)

  • Cowl: Mage Cowl -> Tier 4
  • Robe: Mage Robe -> Tier 4
  • Boots: Soldier Boots -> Tier 4
  • Weapon: Light Crossbow -> Tier 4
  • Off Hand: Torch -> Tier 4
  • Mount: Riding Horse ->Tier 3
  • Bag: Adept’s Bag -> Tier 4

Mage Cowl: For the poison effect on the direwolves or the Force Field to knock up players if they invade you.

Mage Robe: For the Purging Shield that increase your resistance and at the same time creates a shield and if any enemy player hit it looses all the buff he got, which is also very good for escaping in a bad situation (Does not remove enemy heal effects).

Soldier Boots: Every second your movement speed increases by 10%. (Stacks up to 8 times.) This effect lasts for 16 seconds so is also good for avoiding get killed if an enemy kill your mount, you can press the boots effect and run. Personally it saves me a lot of times!

Light Crossbow: For the Exploding Shot skill. The combo is simple to one shot the Direwolf. One normal hit, then Sunder Shot {W} , Exploding Shot {E}, Auto Fire {Q} and for the last one normal hit again and the direwolf life goes to 0 with one simple combo like this.

Torch: For the Cooldown and attack speed modifier.
