Wolves are very fast canines that travel in packs, slightly stronger than hounds but generally not too threatening so long as you don't fight a lot of them at once. They can be found wild in the Lair and the Ice Cave, and appear elsewhere tamed by Grum.
Tips & Tricks
- As with all pack monsters, try not to fight more wolves than you have to at a time. The Lair might not always have good choke points available, but you can generally at least get your back to a wall.
- Wolves are extremely fast -- faster than everything except spriggans, and even then, a spriggan can only keep pace and can't actually outrun them. Even a potion of haste isn't enough to allow a normal-speed character to outrun wolves on its own. If you absolutely have to escape, either combine haste and Swiftness, blink to a stairway, or just read a scroll of teleportation.
- You can summon your own wolves with a moderately high spell power Call Canine Familiar spell.
- Be careful when fighting them off in a spriggan druid's forest. Slugging it out with a pack of wolves becomes much more dangerous when someone casts Awaken Forest in the middle of the fight.
