Valid question; now I'm curious. If you're by a body of water with, say, a moose, what wouldn't stop you from drinking so much water that you would never need to eat and even moose become easy prey?

Drinking water will restore your stamina and give you a 10-15% health increase -- we'll have a timer so you won't get another health boost from drinking for five minutes, or something like that.

This is awesome! I love that you can see the bend in the wolf's wrist joints, which wasn't present before.

Wow, this is such a smooth, beautiful animation! See, I love visiting this website about every week or so and seeing a new mechanic being added to the final product of the game. It's like getting a pinch of realism added to the pot that is WolfQuest and stirring as vigorously as possible to really make it resonate (or fly all over the kitchen, trust me, I know from experience) within the community. Cheers, Dave!

It's great to see that our wolves will no longer be thirsty! I'm curious to know if the wolves can drink from any water source, such as by the waterfall.

Hooray, we can now drink water instead of just play in it. Quite useful when you have a good water source nearby.

It looks so realistic! Nice! This and the new howl animation are so smooth and natural-looking.

@Infinity Howl: Yep, it'll be added to 2.7.X in a future update before the new episode releases. From the first post-
