Description

The dire bear's hypnotic effect of swinging its head from side to side is dispelled when you realize that you have encountered a foe with sharp claws, powerful jaws, and quick reflexes.

In Depth

Dire Bears are much harder foes than their neighboring Silver-backed Bears. Someone who can dance four Silver-backed Bears will, unfortunately, die in three to four hits from a dire bear. They are approximately as strong as Shaggy Black Barghests (daytime barghests), but with better spawn.

  • Low range on defenses is 110 minimum, and even then, without decent supernatural or magic defenses you're going to have a bad time. Probably closer to 120 for more than one or two and they spawn quickly.
  • Defensive learning slows noticeably at 150, significantly at 160, and soft caps (1/34) by 170. (7/31/2016)
  • Bottom cap for offenses around 70.
  • Tactics: Hard cap (0/34) at 202 with no Soft cap. (7/31/2016)
  • Teaches skinning great at 160, but still not getting perfect pelts.
  • Locked skinning (full arrange) thru 249. Stopped locking at 250, but still teaching fine at 251. (7/31/2016)

Special Attacks

NONE.
