Well it started off as exciting. And then became a disappointment.
The whole start was really exciting. I couldn't wait to start taming a wolf. Checking back literally 3 times a day to see if he was tame. Constantly repairing the walls. It was a wild ride for a first experience.
So I tamed 2 of them. And within 5 real life minutes I had 6. I separated two by accident to do wall repairs in the pen, and suddenly I have 8.
It thought taming a wolf and keeping one would be a significant, awe inspiring experience.
No. The game treats them like an invasive species that reproduces faster then rabbits.
When you pet them to follow you, they stop after about 5 minutes and aimlessly wander.
I do love that they follow you tho, and I brought one with me when doing my regular verry runs and he helps stop the greydwarves from harmlessly harassing me so thats cool.
I wanted to go on a boat ride. REALLY wanted to bring Wolfy. There was no way so my friend drove the boat and I harpooned Wolfy and dragged him behind the boat until we got to where we needed. I felt awful doing it but it was the only way. I felt like I was trolling for sea monsters. Poor wolfy.
I read that if they escape their pen and there are 2 of them they will reproduce and kill off all the spawning animals until you manually kill off all the wolves.
I think the whole experience was just a little underwhelming for me.
