  1. All the mobs are about 15 seconds away and too far to hassle me at my base or set it on fire. Worst I've ever experienced is one bite and it's usually over pretty quickly. Also, I use all the teeth for darts which are very effective with the toad in solo mode. Traps aren't useless but I'll do an analysis, I'm pretty sure the cost is higher in terms of resources (gold for ax, twigs, wood, grass, stone), especially the time involved. With 8 hounds you need about 40-50 traps...
  2. Sure. I get 8 hounds usually but it takes only 1-3 minutes for them to die and I rarely take a hit. I pick up silk and monster meat (dart in/out) when using spiders. Tooth traps are faster but you have to count the time doing resets and harvesting wood and grass. That adds up to more time + you don't get silk, pig skins and or beefalo meat/fur etc. I don't plant grass now, just use desert runs.

  4. I used them religiously then just stopped one day. Instead I run the hounds by spiders, tentacles, pigs, beefalo, bees and lure plants. As a bonus I get to harvest extra material afterwords. On a side note I've been killing bearger and deerklops (when not using to cut trees) in the swamps many times, the tentacles never run out (do they respawn?
  5. I map in 8 days and gather everything for a base, gears included.
  6. Thought so, thanks. Must be hiding in a dense forest...
  7. I found two pieces but can't locate the third, you can't mine these for marble right?
  8. Wow, can I hire you? Impressed that you did this with WX (I play with this character). This is the last boss I have to solo kill and from the looks of it I don't stand much of a chance.
  9. I tried this and dragonfly kept respawning so I gave up.
  10. Since this is for beginners... Make pick axe first, not ax. No need for fires until you're ready to get fireflies. Use torch to burn isolated trees (which also saves torch life) to collect charcoal and mine spiders for silk early on. Map the world in the first 6-8 days. If you run across clockworks make science machine for armor and harvest gears. Set up base by days 8-10 and get miners hat, then shave beefalo for winter hat.
  11. WX, so much health and sanity that it makes the ruins easy. Food lasts a long time as well.
  12. I can host if you're interested :), I have a fast machine.
  13. I'm game. Enjoy base building, killing giants (solo or team effort), like to make sure teams are well stocked. Play as WX as this character is very strong (especially in ruins, sanity is never an issue). I rarely die as the cost in gears is so high, usually every 500-1000 days while fighting queen bee solo. I use discord.
