Is dire zombie wolf only killing me 😅?

Greetings!
Am I the only victim of this zombie wolf or is there anyone else being chased by it?
You may jump right ahead to 00h16m50s:

I have a hard time killing it, and it’s got my Thralls in its menu for such a long time.

The ravenous wolf is very easy to kill if you know how, @Wonka .
Here’s what you need to have in mind. It only has linear non AoE attacks.
When this is the case, in Conan Exiles, you only need to use circular motions against the enemy. It’s very difficult for the AI to catch you. Manage your stamina, use a shield. Don’t push your luck. Any weapon will do as long as you know the animations. I repeat, a shield trivializes this combat.
I used a mace. Block its attack, strike with two light attacks, two heavy attacks. Again, this is your choice. Time the wolf. Then chose your attacks. I killed many so I memorized its rhythm long ago. Walk in circles. Block, wait for its attack, strike. Move out of range, do a little stamina regen circular walk, repeat.
If it is not alone, you need more situational awareness. Same principle applies, though. Circular motion. They can’t catch you. Keep in mind that raising the shield will delay stamina regen. So you only do it to block. Only keep it up at full stamina.
Ok, take a look. You’ll never fear it again.

Nice strategy! Thank you :+1: I will leave Lagertha home next time I face it :grimacing:.

Tbf, the video you posted DOES work, but it’s a lengthy and boring battle. There’s nothing interesting about the corrupted wolf. It literally has a massive health pool and a strong attack. It does just what regular wolves do, but makes it more annoying. That’s no fault of yours though. It’s just an annoying enemy, especially when surrounded by other wolves attacking you. It will literally jump in and mess up your day when you’re dealing with an easier wolf.

It makes wondering in the night through that area more adventurous.
It’s your “Welcome to the North” postcard.
When you get it along with two wolves, in the Devil’s Squat, your odds of dying increase significantly. That’s why I would go there at night, alone. It’s thrilling. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
@jmk1999 some people like the challenge by itself. The fun is surviving it.

Wolves can be cheesed in general, you just get unlucky if it double bit dodges, and nips you toes cause your 1 pixal to close.

Everything pretty much is easy if you Strafe circle it… So many of attacks have windups. XD
Shield breaks game basically (as it does most games…)

I remember being up there abit early (nabbing black ice) having stand on rock pillar till night passed… 2 of them just staring at my soul from down below.
I tend have brightness setting just down a notch. Pitch Black is Pitch Black. =3

Cool adventure. :wink:
Good thinking, climbing a tree. Some people try to outrun them at night, get stuck a little ahead and that’s that, @Sera67 .
Edit: a pilar, not a tree, but it’s the same. :smile:

Good news, your thrall survived. The very first time a server disconnected on me, the red mother killed my strongest Greater Sabretooth, and all the nerfs to pets pretty much ensure I’ll never be able to level another to be as strong.

Oh there is!

Everything decays but this :point_up_2:
Never. You don’t do boss fights solo to loot them, you don’t give a dime about their loot, you do boss fights solo to enjoy the fact that you stay alive and it’s corpse lye on your feet.
The loot is just a boon, nothing else.

Well executed fight Marcos, i learned something new today, thank you really :pray:t6:.

I was with a full authority build because I planned taking two ladies out for the evening :wink:, full agi, 0 points in strenght (thus wrong weapon! :laughing:) and stolen lemurian armor from the pagoda. You don’t want to go with filthy rags when you take two cuties for a good time .:smiley:
The fight would have been much shorter if I had properly prepared it. This goes to show how easy it is if you know your opponent.
