Not to be confused with Dread Wolf (Siege of Dragonspear).

A Dread Wolf is a creature in the Baldur's Gate series.

Dread Wolves belong to the family of Wolves and are beasts in the original games and the Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition, but count as undead in the Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. They are commonly encountered at cliffs and in the grasslands and plains of the Sword Coast, where they are generally thought to be the toughest of their kin, and should be avoided at the start of the journey – which, however, isn't always possible. At most times they are accompanied by weaker wolves, it only seldom happens that an entire group of Dread ones attacks together. In Shadows of Amn they only may spawn in one location, Firkraag's Maze, if a certain trap isn't disarmed. They can wake a resting party in the Heretic Temple.

For the specific variant, found in Siege of Dragonspear locations, see Dread Wolf (Siege of Dragonspear).
