I soloed one of these with my 26 Druid. All I did was pull it away from all the other wolves and giants and rooted it and just nuked the hell out of it. I had very little mana at the end but nice exp.

I solo these in the NE portion of zone (between PoK tome and EW zone in), getting 2-3% per kill. I'm using a 39 shadow knight, snare pulling, and I hit them with a fear before they get to me (the ole fear kite strategy), and they fall pretty fast. Every once in a while if I have enough mana left after a fight, I'll also take a frost giant scout, however, these dire's give just as good of xp as they do.

Did I miss something? Why do you think they're the wrong lvl? 35 would be DB to a 37 right? Just checking Smiley: tongue

Great hunting for a Ranger.

Just took my 32 Half Elf Ranger to the EW last night. I don't think I saw a single mob that was Green to me. Looks like I can hunt here for a good while. These DW's are hard hitters and I would agree with the guess below of around 1200 HP, give or take. I have my HP just over 1300 and going head to head with these melee only is a risk. I read about a stricktly panic animal method elsewere that will save me some down time. Right now I hunt the Blue and Yellows. My method last night was Snare, bow, Stinging Swarm, bow, Flaming Arrow, bow, Ignite, bow, Invoke Lightning, bow, Panic animal and finish them off. Down time between each one for Mana regen was kind of high but health never got below 80%. Saw lots of Low Quality pelts and a couple of the belts, nothing great but good exp.

I had a few problems with the Panic Animal when we would cross paths with a Frost Giant. Got stomped once by a red FG but had him down to about 30% when his last strike killed me just as I was clicking the POK book to port. Dhow! Nothing like looking down on your body as it lay next to the portal! :( Kind of funny listening to the FG go "ouch"..."uh"...."oh"..."ouch" as I worked my dual wield / double attack for all it was worth! I think had I not turned my back on him I would have been able to port out. Oh well, learned my leason. Going to try the Full Panic Animal method next and see how my Mana bar looks after a snare and 4-5 Panic Animal's.

Has the drop rate of the whiskers been nerfed?

I have not gotten any and have killed hundreds of wolves in GD now.
RE: drop rate of whiskers

They were dropping fairly regularly just south/west of the pok book, in the ravine. Over 3-4 hours I probably saw close to 10. On a side note, I passed on the loc for most of them, but only had one person come loot. It doesn't seem you'll have much competition for them. Good luck :)

In wolf form your faction will go down one set.. say your ally faction in normal form.. you'll be warmly in wolf form. So make sure the set below your normal faction is not kos.. even then their are still some dwarves near thurgadin who will attack you.

can anyone tell me bout how many of these it will take to go from apprehensive with the coldain, to indifferent? respond or e mail the info to me (that would be great). It's really hard to kill giants until like 42 or something and these wolfs are the best way for now

New Drop?
# May 13 2001 at 2:05 AM Rating: Default
Since the patch on 5/9, I've started getting Drakkel Wolf Whiskers as a drop LORE/Magic Item. I'm thinking (er..hoping) it's for a new quest out of Thurgadin, but haven't found any information on anything relating to it.

Also as a side-note, I've been killing these since 42, and halfway through 44 I've been an Ally with the Coldain, and dubious with Skyshrine (big city - scarce on the vendors)

They are for the sixth Coldain Prayer Shawl.

Dire Wolf Stats
# Mar 17 2001 at 1:19 PM Rating: Good
I fought dire wolves solo for the last 2 bubs of 39, the following info may be of use..(looked at log with parser)

Drakkel Dire Wolf

Average hps 1200 --> 1250 per my parser
Max damage seen: 73, (most of them hit for less than this 63 is not uncommon max damage for these wolves)

They dropped LQ and MQ dire wolf furs (common) and once a Black Steel Wrap - AC6, +10hps, 2.5 wgt belt.

The Drakkel Blood Wolf is much worse, he hit for up to 88 dmg and I had to FD him off

What do we do with the pelts? It says they are magic, and I have gotten both low quality and medium quality. Are they just like regualr pelts for tailoring and pottery, etc., or are the something special? Any info would be great.

LQ pelts are used in tinkering to create a telescopic eyepatch. I think they're also for some quest, not sure which though.

It's not like regular pelts. I am a tailor by trade and attempted to combine them with patterns. No luck. I also tried to skin one and lost my skinning knife. I would love to know what they are good for. Otherwise I am carrying that 1WT for just 4cp. :-( Anyone know?

This is the actual faction hit from my log file:

[Sun Feb 18 03:56:20 2001] You punch a drakkel dire wolf for 13 points of damage.
[Sun Feb 18 03:56:20 2001] You have slain a drakkel dire wolf!
[Sun Feb 18 03:56:20 2001] Your faction standing with Kromrif got worse
[Sun Feb 18 03:56:20 2001] Your faction standing with Kromzek got worse
[Sun Feb 18 03:56:20 2001] Your faction standing with Coldain got better
[Sun Feb 18 03:56:20 2001] Your faction standing with ClawsofVeeshan got better
[Sun Feb 18 03:56:38 2001] Auldian saved.

I've sent a note to Illia's. This is sure a simple way to work up your skyshrine faction.

The Drakkle Dire Wolves level is actually anywhere from approx 29 - 33. I am a 31 druid hunting them at the present and i have yet to see a wolf that cons red to me
RE: Actual level (and strength)
# Feb 03 2001 at 6:04 AM Rating: Default
I have killed well over 200 of these wolves. On 5 occasions the wolf was far tougher than normal, and it was NOT a drakkel BLOOD wolf. The 2 dots i apply that normally take it down to just under half health, suddenly only take it down to 3/4 at best. In addition, they hit for max damage on almost every attack. Instead of only using 1/3 of my mana and health to take them (while being twinked), I suddenly require about 5 gheals and use twice the mana as normal. And these unusual wolves /con the same. Thankfully, they still are not as difficult as the Drakkel Blood Wolf.

Just a simple warning. The wolves are not what they always appear to be.

I hunted these at lvl 30 and found that they ranged from high blue to yellow, based on what other people have posted here that would make their lvl in the 28-32 range.

Rare Loot
# Dec 17 2000 at 5:11 PM Rating: Default
There is also a rarer Drakkel Wolf who drops a WolfBlood Harness (belt - 5AC, 20MANA) He seems to spawn about everday and I think he drops it every time. Hes different from the others in that the first letter of the word Drakkel was capitalized as opposed to being uncapitalized like the others. He conned yellow to me at 35, unlike all the rest that conned blue.

found a black steel wrap (ac 6, 10 hp) belt on the corpse of one drakkel dire wolf.. can't remember if the d was cap or non cap
RE: Rare Loot
# Dec 24 2000 at 7:35 PM Rating: Default
got the one that adds +20 mana today...dropped off one of the wolves with blood in it's name...can't remember exactly what it was called though
Blood Drakkel Wolf
# Feb 24 2001 at 11:32 AM Rating: Default
BDW is a named Dire Wolf that always has the 5ac 20mana belt on him.

I killed him 3 times the same day, but it seems I was extremly lucky that he spawned so often. I was hunting dire wolves so maybe that caused him to spawn.

He has a LOT of hp for a 36-37 mob. The first time I killed it I was alone and I had to pull it on coldain wolves to let them help me kill it. My entire mana bar (35 level druid with 172 wis) was enough to get roughly a third of his life.

I was grouped for the other kills so it wasn't that difficult at that stage.

I cant make Drakkel Blood Wolf spawn. Where does he spawn and how do you make him spawn? I have killed 30 to 50 Drakkel Dire Wolves but no spawn. I tried tracking for him also. I need a harness. Please help.
all are blue at 35 and 36
