      Is there no official name/page for the Massive wolf? It seems that if you kill it first, the other wolves will back down (unless you go in to kill them)

        It doesn't look like you can rapport the wolves, which sucks. It'd be nice to watch the gank squad fight itself instead of burning through estus trying to get to the stupid vikings.

            At first I felt guilty killing ordinary animals, and thinking of Sif didn't help, but after getting ganked by these *****ers for the 100th time... I guess you could say Firelink Shrine is running out of wall space for all these trophies.

            Tip: take a stealth approach and kill the "alarm" wolves with a greatarrow to the face before they spot you. That way you don't have to deal with like 30 wolves every time you respawn.

              1st playthrough - I beat big wolfie the first time he showed up. Ran away the 2nd time because he had a gank squad.
              2nd playthrough/ NG+ - smashed big wolfie the first two times he shows up. More of a cajones thing. He only drops 2 large titanite shards per mini-boss fight. The fight with his buddy, Gravetender, has more worthwhile rewards.

                The big wolves gets hit by all three lava puddles created by Great Chaos Fire Orb, I can consistently oneshot them as a result.

                  The first giant wolf that you fight in the beginning seems to be extremely weak to dark and bleed. I was getting demolished by him and as a last resort tried regular old Gnaw and the first cast took about 1/4 of his life away and the second cast killed him from 3/4 health. Not sure if some wacky interaction made the second cast do so much damage but I'm in no way a caster build, only 20 faith and 124 spell buff.
