How to Fight a Wolf

How to Fight

Fighting a Wolf is the same as fighting any canine beast. Most of the time, you will not encounter this enemy alone and it will come with a pack of other wolves. The best way to fight this is to stop its movements and attack it when it is vulnerable.

What Preparations to Make?

You should use your Steel Sword and coat it with Beast oil to deal bonus damage to it. Use attacks, Signs, or Bombs that can affect multiple enemies at once so you can attack the Wolves while the others are stunned.

Special Sign Effects

  • Aard - If your Sign Intensity is high enough, you will be able to knock them down and give yourself an opening to instant-kill them.
  • Igni - If your Sign Intensity is high enough, they will start burning and will leave them stunned for the duration of the burn.
  • Yrden - Their attacks will become slower allowing you more time to dodge or roll away.
  • Axii - They will become stunned or will be converted to an ally if you have the Puppet or Domination skill equipped.
