Teaching Cap ?


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.

Area Information

Dire bears sometimes wander into the silver-backed bear and blood wolf dominated areas of the Rocky Outcrop (5/21/2015).

Skill Caps

  • Offenses: Bottom cap around 70.
  • Defenses: 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. Learning slows noticeably at 150, significantly at 160, and soft caps (1/34) by 170 (7/31/2016).
  • Tactics: Hard cap (0/34) at 202 with no Soft cap (7/31/2016).
  • Skinning:Teaches great at 160, but still not getting perfect pelts. Locked (full arrange) thru 249. Stopped locking at 250, but still teaching fine at 251 (7/31/2016).

Special Attacks

  • NONE.
