  • The wolf appears to be dead, however he is actually asleep. He bleeds when struck , and said to be imaciated as stated in the Exile Armor description.



  • You can find the Old Wolf of Farron at Farron Keep, by climbing the ladder on the massive bridge support in the middle of the swamp.



  • This NPC cannot be fought or killed.



This NPC has no dialogue.



  • The wolf may be meant to represent Sif, the Great Gray Wolf from Dark Souls 1. While it may not actually be Sif, it is clearly related. It also lies in the same pose as Sif does when you find him in the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.
  • Prior to patch 1.03 a bug would sometimes occur where after defeating the Abyss Watchers players would find themselves unable to interact with the wolf and unable to rank up the Watchdogs covenant as a result.

I have been trying to be more positive about my relationship with my boyfriend, it seems like it has taken forever. Another lady took my Fiancee away from me and they both relocated. i cried and searched for him to come back but he refused to take my calls nor return my messages. My friend introduced me to a powerful spell caster called Dr Azuka who helped me cast a very powerful love spell that brought back my Fiancee in 48 hours. i was amazed and surprised when my fiancee called to beg me for forgiveness all because of the powerful love spell of Dr Azuka.

          My name is Hidago Daniel. I made a promise to tell others the wonderful works of he who brought my ex girlfriend back to me. He is doctor KEN who is a spell doctor and was able to bring back my ex. My ex left me the very day she met her friend in my place, of which, unknowingly to her, I had nothing to do with her. She grew furious at the very sight of her friend and I was confused if she was initially mad with her. Days into weeks and weeks into months, my ex girlfriend did not speak a word to me as she went away. What was I to do? That was how i contacted doctor KEN on the internet who after some procedures and progress, brought back my ex. Words are not enough to express my feelings and what doctor KEN has done for me. He really lifted a heavy load off my chest. To all those out there, please, don't think your situation is too primitive or too hard and complicated for anyone to understand. Contact doctor KEN and find joy once again, contact him on also talk to him on +1 (903) 847 0267

                It's dead unfortunately. Doesn't breathe, doesn't move. Looks mummified. Probably preserved as an object of worship. Everything else in this game breathes loud enough to hear around corners....if a giant wolf in ds3 doesn't breathe loudly while it sleeps or make respiratory movements, it's dead.

                  Praying to the wolf gives you the legion gesture, which is the pose the abyss watchers give you in the cutscene, proving that they prayed to it. Ik it might be stupid since the watchers are fighting it out in the boss room, but it would make sense to have a couple of dead watchers in the room, or even a mini boss watcher

                        What if the Old Wolf of Farron was the child of Sif from DKS1! Sif is also a female and the Abyss Watchers also follow in the steps of the Wolf BLOOD master which was Artorias. Artorias was the master of Sif but since Sif has been long dead and killed by the chosen undead then they had to be connected with the original Wolf's blood in a way so they must have partook in the blood of the child of the Great Gray Wolf.

                          Could be Sif, but rezised to match the Artorias GS.03 Jun 2016 07:11  

                          If you remember Sif from DS1 its Artorias greatsword was too big to be actually the same Artorias wielded. Probably because Sif was designed first, Artorias with the DLC later. Result is sword and Sif were too big. But this DS3 Sif would match the Artorias sword if he holds it in his mouth.

                            So the new patch notes say the patch will fix matchmaking for the Darkmoon and Blue Sentinels, but why not this covenant?!?! It takes ages to get invasions :(

                              What if the old wolf of farron was actually sif himself? And the reason he looks black and sick is because the abyss watchers used up most of his blood. his covenant is also created for the sole purpose of guarding the grounds of "sleeping warriors" just like sif did in dks1. he guarded artorias' grave from anyone that would dare to enter.

                                Like a wolf companion that levels up with you and has it's own personal armor/weapon slots and his name will be Maximus and he will be mine. Oh wait, this is dark souls and they would probably have the saddest storyline for the dog... ughh...
