Direwolves are a white, stronger, and more vicious version of the Wolf, commonly seen roaming around in the colder northern parts of Gransys. They are susceptible to Fire and highly resistant to Ice based attacks.
Direwolves are not only stronger, but smarter too. They hunt in packs often lead by a single larger alpha individual, and attack using guerilla tactics if outmatched. Very occasionally, a Direwolf bite can inflict serious debilitations, including Petrification, or Curse.

Can be more or less depending on a few factors such as:
|Sources: Dragon's Dogma - ドラゴンズドグマ ＆ Dark Arisen (www10.atwiki.jp), the 'Dragon's Dogma Signature Series Guide' and in-game testing.|
|Leap Attack||Phys||Pounces its target.|
|Bite||Phys||May inflict debilitations including Petrification or Curse very rarely|
|Grab and Bite||Phys||Bites a character's leg and holds them in place, mauling them continuously until freed by wiggling the L-stick. If the victim was knocked down multiple Direwolves can join in on this attack, dealing severe damage.|
- Weak against Fire enchanted weapons and spells.
- A Direwolf caught on fire will roll on the ground to quickly douse the flames.
- Fighters, Assassins, Mystic Knights: Burst Strike will impale fast moving enemies like Direwolves.
- Striders, Rangers, Assassins, Magick Archers: Cutting Wind will close the distance against fast moving Direwolves.
- Striders: Ensnare/Implicate can be an effective way of easily bringing the Direwolf down, leaving it vulnerable to melee attacks.
- Just as pawns say Direwolfs do literally "hunt in packs" - that is - they will often target a single party member as a pack and ignore others
Pawn Bestiary Knowledge
In addition to witnessing these techniques, it is necessary for Pawns to participate in killing 500 Direwolves either with their own Arisen or while travelling with others.
