A Dire Need (quest walkthrough)

There are more than 20 Direwolves near the Blighted Manse. Sleep at the Rest Camp a few days in order to re-spawn them.

Direwolves are tougher than regular wolves, and just as agile. They are weak to Fire, but resistant to ice, so best use fire enchantments or spells.

Such wolves are common in parts of the Deos Hills, throughout all of Northface Forest, and west of the Greatwall Encampment at Barta Crags.
