Overpowered Wigfrid

10 posts in this topic

Mentioned it multiple times in posts out of grudge, figured to bring it up in general. This is not a question, but it would be interesting to see if people have noticed it.

Because here is the breakdown of Wigfrid.

 

- 25% Attack Bonus

- 25% Defense Bonus

- Noticeable sanity and life siphoning from combat, allowing her to regenerate sanity and heal wounds autonomously

- Ability to mass produce head slot item with more durability then football helmet, which is more difficult to acquire

- Ability to mass produce hand slot item with more power and durability then spear

 

- Can only eat meat, a common item that makes up most of the games food

- Her equipment requires gold, which is an extremely easy resource to mass farm from rocks above and below ground

 

So. Wigfrid at her base is 50% stronger then the average character. She then can mass produce more powerful standard equipment which arguably makes her 50% stronger again in terms of endurance. She then also siphons energy from foes, which makes her potentially 25% stronger even more because she literally can heal her wounds and perpetually stay sane from participating in easy combat scenarios.

And all this is weighed out by, being a carnivore. Really, because most of the significant food in this game; is meat. And most of the significant recipes in this game; are meat. And the ultimate meta which can magically purify monster meat, meatballs, is also; meat. Literally, unless you are completely new to the game Wigfrid's gimmick is virtually inconsequential and only stops you from eating filler for quick satisfaction. And past a certain point, eating filler is already taboo anyway. And not being able to eat things like mushrooms and light fruit is meaningless when she already can regenerate sanity and health by fighting, and has massive benefits that far outweigh not being able to eat obscure utility foods.

 

Wigfrid is easy mode. Hundred percent. Because right out of spawn, she is capable of obliterating low tier enemies with no effort. Right out of spawn, she is capable of handling mid tier enemies like clockworks with minimal injury. And right out of spawn, she is capable of mass producing a constant stream of above average equipment which makes her standard arsenal better and more efficient then every other players with no downside. And right out of spawn, she can stay sane forever just by fighting weak mobs; and can constantly heal damage to require significantly less aid then other characters.

Having used Wigfrid as main for over thirty hours, can definitively say that she should not exist unless easy mode was an intended option. Actually stopped playing her because she makes the game so trivial by having a ceaseless arsenal, significant base combat superiority and self regeneration all at the cost of limiting what you can eat in a meaningless way. And her being a carnivore only makes the game less interesting because it means less of the food items you find are content you can access, you are just forced to default to not eating every single thing you can possibly find.

 

Nerf her, she completely defies logic. Why would Willow and her quirky abilities get nerfed when Wigfrid is over twice as strong as every other character at her base with no real downside.

 

Oh damn, Deerclops is coming. Should we find Klaus and acquire his key and use him to fight Deerclops? Should we run to the swamp and hope the tentacles deal with it. Should we spend boatloads of resources to make a toothtrap pit and hope that kills him? Should we make shadow equipment and gang up on him ourselves?

 

We got a Wigfrid. Just give her a hambat and a logsuit and she'll drop him quicker then a stone.

her helmet only good in early game? not really.. everyone loves her helmet, no matter when. 

her spear is kinda meh, people prefer dark sword. 

 

and no one is sad she cannot eat trail mix when she can easily heal herself with pierogis. it just bores people that she cannot eat other things but its nothing to be sad about.

Wigfrid is far from a overpowered character, in my opinion she is one of the three most balanced characters in the game (Those characters being: Wigfrid, Wilson, and Wendy). Compared to Wolfgang Wigfrid is only average and if you want to talk overpowered characters, take a look at Wolfgang, Wickerbottom and WX-78. Being balanced isn't a bad thing and Wigfrid is still a great character just not Wolfgang levels of good. I'm also not gonna keep replying to this thread as it is likely to lead to lots of fighting. Have a nice day!

(I also think this thread should be closed as I have read that 15 page forum topic on this before I made my account.)
