Absence of Howls[edit]

I'm not exactly sure when it changed, but my Skyrim (on 360) is completely up to date, all DLC, and wolves do not howl, at all, on my game. They definitely used to though. Is this a known problem?

(p.s, not sure how to properly start this page, I apologise if the structure is different to the normal standard) MadAndyD (talk) 19:15, 25 July 2013 (GMT)

This lack of howling also persists on the nintendo switch version — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 23:41 on 8 March 2020 (UTC)
This was broken by Dawnguard. Skyrim Special Edition fixed this in a patch, but obviously the Switch version hasn't received any such update. —Legoless (talk) 01:44, 9 March 2020 (GMT)

Another Pit Wolf[edit]

There are leveled Pit Wolfs found in Cragslane Cavern: CSList and Pit Wolf redirects to here. --Alfwyn (talk) 19:37, 3 January 2014 (GMT)

Pit Wolf attacks[edit]

Unlike Wolves and Ice Wolves, Pit Wolves might attack the player despite having gained Skyrim: Voice of the Sky. Metaphorset (talk)

Are you sure voice of the sky hadn't simply expired by the time you encountered the pit wolf? It only lasts for 24 hours, not permanently. --AN|L (talk) 14:57, 1 August 2014 (GMT)

Healing Hands / Wolf / nr Rebel's Cairn[edit]

Hello, (Sorry for not logging in; am not here much)

Replaying Skyrim (vanilla/virgin) on PS3. No DLC, no patches...

After clearing Rebel's Cairn, but before the
Other nearby Forsworn tower (forgot the name
but they have a Hagraven w them), I came
across Wolves.

Firstly, I found FOUR...

Whether this means that "two sets of" 1-3 wolves
spawned near enough "AND" Skyrim Wolves
are programmed for pack mentality.. I have no
clue.. But thought I should mention it.

I Sneak - a lot - Movarth's Boots n all...

Running an Elf, so sticking to Light Armor.
Wolves still heard me nearby, I think, cuz while
the "Eye" ( <(@)> ) was still closed (--.--)
& I was "Hidden", they Howled - which is also
how I pinpointed their location...
In any case, I dispatched all but one Wolf,
to borrow it for a bit of Levelling:
Your typical Blocking & Healing, or NOT
Blocking (for Light Armor skill), and the odd
dagger strike for One-Handed..
It was down to its last health, did the run-away
-and-return-for-last-bites thing, and I used
Healing Hands on it, to bring it back up..
A further exchange (got Rockjoint dammit)
Healing Hands on it a 2nd time.



I moved around (also not attacking) and it
Followed me, still assuming the pre-attack
stance w low growl, but NO BITING (nor

Anyone else ever "Healing Hands" a Wolf?

Is it possible to "increase disposition" of a Wolf toward you??

Ashamed to say, in trying to get it to bite,
I "accidentally" critical-hit Killed it, so didn'
get the chance to test if it would follow AND
FIGHT FOR/with/alongside me...
...but will try next time I find Wolves.

There's nothing about it here on the Wolf page, so I thought I'd write in.

Oh, BTW, I'm NOT a werewolf (yet??) & as
far as I'm aware, didn't suddenly sprout
any "Wolf-friendly magic"..!  ;p
So can't explain the no-more-biting thing.


forgot what I used last time I wrote, re
Movarth's Lair clear-out BEFORE doing the
Helgi's Ghost bit... 13:53, 10 March 2015 (GMT)Rambler (!!)

Red Wolves[edit]

It seems either the Legendary edition or the Hearthfire DLC places red wolves (one is seen in a loading screen) in levelled lists as one just attacked me while I was about to begin building Lakeview Manor, just thought it might be worth noting. — Unsigned comment by Desterine (talkcontribs) at 19:48 on 18 August 2016

Can you take an image of it, there's no record of them by that name even by editor id. The only thing I see is Hearthfire's trophy list refers to the normal wolves as Part21WolfRed with ice wolves being Part22WolfIce. Despite this 'red' the listing is for normal wolves.
