Wolves are wild animals commonly found in the Forest, Plains and Snowy Forest biomes. Wolves are hostile and will try to chase and attack the player if provoked or spots the player. Wolves are much faster than players and will easily outrun a player and catch them, so it is advised to take them down as fast as you can before they can reach you, or get to high round like a car as they cannot climb it. Wolves can be spotted moving around in small packs, this horde is not the same as other hordes as they will not go searching for the player and will wander aimlessly like a normal animal on its own. It isn't advised to take these packs of wolves on as they can quickly kill the player unless they are equipped with strong armor and weapons. The packs may also contain a Dire Wolf.
As of A17, some wolf packs contain a larger "alpha" wolf. Other than a slight difference in size, and a bit more resources, it is unknown if it is any more powerful than a normal wolf. This is not to be confused with the much more powerful, black Dire Wolf.
