|Parish Popularity Reduction||-32|
|Troop experience (HP)||150%|
The Wolf will appear in parishes at random intervals same as all other AIs, being more likely to appear in parishes with many high ranking players. His presence is visually represented on the game map by a small red tower icon, which will display a grey & black coat of arms with a wolf’s head when placing your cursor over it.
The Wolf’s attacks will come in either of two forms, Pillage or Ransack. His Pillage attacks are easily enough defended against providing your castle is built all the way out to the white line, manned with at least 200 troops, and your vaults research is maxed. By contrast, The Wolf’s ransack attack if nigh impossible to successfully defend against without help of oil pots around the perimeter of your castle.
Whether attacking or defending, The Wolf’s troop’s hit points are upgraded to 150%, making them the strongest troops used by any NPC in the game.
In the following walkthroughs you will learn of the many different shapes The Wolf builds his castle into and the preferred method of dispatching each with either minimal troop loss or maximum honor gain. All attacking troops (red) shown in the following walkthroughs have had their hit points fully upgraded.
