A tamed wolf that obeys you and can hunt. Good against treasure guardians and other pets.
—In-game description

The Tengri Wolf is a pet native warrior introduced in Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition that can be trained at a Trading Post built on a Tengri Shrine settlement.

Overview[]

The Tengri Wolf is a pet which is visually similar to Buck the Tame Wolf. The units have similar stats, except Tengri Wolves have a slightly increased food cost, train slower, and have a reduced build limit, but in addition to their attack multiplier against Treasure Guardians, they have a bonus against other pets, making Tengri Wolves more effective against tamed animals such as pet Polar Bears, which have a higher amount of hit points, or Explorer Dogs, which increases their hit points and attack with every age up.

However, their reduced build limit (only 5 per Tengri settlement) makes Tengri Wolves very situational units. Usually, players would favor infantry or cavalry with higher hit points and attack. In exchange, as Tengri Wolves are classified as native warriors, they will benefit from upgrades or Home City Cards that increase their stats, build limit, or training time.

Upgrades[]

The Tengri Wolf automatically increases its hit points and attack in the Commerce Age, Fortress Age, Industrial Age, and Imperial Age, but unlike other units, its name is not changed to reflect this.

Trivia[]

History[]

The domestication of canine animals already started in prehistoric times. Scientific hypotheses assume that individual wolves with a higher acceptance for humans were more likely to be tolerated – and less likely to be killed – by humans as opposed to more aggressive counterparts. The raising of orphaned wild animals has particularly high chances to foster lasting familial bonds with humans. Relationships of trust between humans and canines as well as the increased food dependency ultimately led to the domestication of canines and enabled their use as guard animals and hunting dogs.
In Turko-Mongol folklore wolves are worshiped as legendary founders and ancestors of their peoples, akin to the founding myth of the city of Rome telling of two brothers – Romulus and Remus – nursed by a she-wolf. According to written Mongol sources Genghis Khan is said to be a distant relative of "Borte Chino", a gray-blue wolf from the sky.
