10% faster movement speed and a normal sized inventory wouldn't be unbalanced if it went with a con such as all equippables being categorized into different weights which apply no speed penalty, 10% speed penalty, 15% speed penalty, or 20% speed penalty when worn by Wheeler. E.g. log armor reducing speed by 15%, marble armor reducing it by 20% in addition to the 30%, ect.

Of course that's just my opinion.

Oof. That's definitely drive me absolutely insane.

You mean movement speed coming at a cost?

Heresy.

 

On a side note, the logistics of that suggestion aren't really that difficult, and incentivizing a character to not want to wear armor during a fight/in general could be an interesting idea.

Like, completely rely on kiting and dodging attacks or you're DEAD.

I mean unless something was changed isn't WX-78 able to get easy lightning speed boosts in hamlet making him really fast? I've seen some videos which he literally moves like sonic which is hilarious! So, there's already some pretty unbalanced stuff..

To me it would make her feel like a character which requires actual skill to play (points finger at Wolfgang mains which chug dragonpie and tank everything while holding F, 10/10 skill) and with her dodge speed cooldown being lowered to 1.5 sec as I suggested I think it's a perfect balancing con, in my personal opinion.

Oh sorry, thanks for the correction because I actually made a confusion with the french word "anecdotique" which means "not really important".

I am a bit ashamed, but also less stupid with a wise downside/upside balance if I could say so.

However, with some verification, it seems anecdotal might have also this meaning. Bus as the Cambridge dictionnary doesn't mention it, hands down.

 

In order to not being totally outside the topic, I can agree on your point about the speed modifiers. But even without them, you can absolutely kite all the bosses from all the DLC apart the Quacken and maybe the Ancient Herald as I just blunderbuss its face from a safe distance. But I definitely kite without a single damage all the ROG bosses (Ancient Guardian included), without walking cane or any speed modifiers. Maybe just roads in fact or some. Same for Sealnado, Tiger Shark, Queen Womant mant warriors, Pugalisk.

I don't have opinion on the conversation however. Just, saying that speed modifier will allow to kite too easily the bosses and so is not suitable is a weird argument to me as this regard. Especially with the blunderbuss now.

Wheeler now has 15 inventory slots and receives a 1% speed boost for each empty inventory space + a natural 10%

Why???? Having a smaller inventory was such a good perk! It was super fun to play with as a challenge character. It was a fair penalty for having a (practically free) infinite projectile...

Now, she not only has the normal inventory size, but she's been buffed to move faster with empty slots? A double buff? The first buff wasn't even wanted...

TLDR: The Old Wheeler (despite the bugs) was perfect to begin with...

WX-78 in Hamlet is a bit busted, but it still costs you some sanity to overload.

Plus, WX-78 and moisture don't mix well.

(I don't think any character is specifically balanced for Hamlet... especially Woodie).

I agree with keeping the smaller inventory speed.. but I disagree she was good as she was in the first place.. they fixed her dodge precision and the reduced the cooldown.. those are great changes and needed indeed

what the devs diod was encourage you to travel as light as possible.. which is her character in the first place... it's in her portrait

you can decide now... speed or space... which is a fair trade and a new mechanic

i think that is pretty much a consensus that WX is bit broken in Hamlet... he is fun no doubt.. but.. i mean.. he can get overcharged on command

I don't ever play WX, but I don't think he gets damaged by fog does he?

His one downside isn't played upon heavily enough, IMO.

He does. Also, its main downside is more his low stats without upgrades (as gears are really painful to have in mass in Hamlet during early game, especially when you don't know how). But I'm not defending the character, just giving my two cents.

I've just edit that post to explain. I think it's a bug... when I created the world I had no effect at all and after relogging it came back again

It only appears when below 100% health.

His color fading is at any health, though.

I got him to static after hurting him on a new world.

Uhmm... I don't think it's a trade at all. You're basically asking if you'd like speed, or even more speed when playing this new Wheeler.

I still firmly believe she needs her less inventory space back. It's the one trade off Wheeler has for being such a good character, and it makes even more sense she should have it now with this base movement speed buff. I really wanted to play Wheeler after her buggy items got patched, but now I don't see the fun in it cause there's no downside forcing me to switch up my playstyle, which I really enjoyed about this character. And I don't get all the arguments about the "Backpack Meta" either. Backpacks help Wheeler, given that her one downside was inventory management.
Also about all these ideas for a new downside: Lower HP or less movement speed when holding things is not a good downside in my opinion. There's nothing to make you think of what to do instead of the norm, it's just a minor nuisance that can be brushed off and ignored.

Tl;dr I just don't like that her perk "Travels lighter than most." Is now a suggestion instead of a downside.

hmmm.. i'm not against a smaller inventory nerf per se... actually... 

I think she needs lower health anyways... you know to make her more tactical with dodge + gun

that I said what I think the devs thought on the change...

In my opinion less movement speed based on how heavy the equipment you're equipped with would actually be a hardcore downside based on how severe the penalties can get. Basically, almost forcing players to focus on using her dodge, gun, and not get hit because most armors except for a few weightless armors e.g. grass armor, weevole armor, ect. would cripple her. It's definitely not a "minor nuisance" and also encourages the player to get better at kiting making her a character which requires a higher skill level to play effectively which I have to say is new for the DS franchise.

Reduced inventory space was just frustrating and increased tedium while playing as Wheeler in my opinion. I play Don't Starve to explore the world, kill dumb creatures, and build cool stuff, not to manage my inventory.

I suggest you never touch SW then, cause that's half of all you do in that DLC.

As for the rest of your post, that's fair. But imo touching the movement speed at all was kind of a bad move perk-wise, cause now it's unbalanced. You can rarely ever hit a happy medium when it comes to balancing movement speed: If your character is too fast, they're broken in the eyes of elitists. If your character is slower in any way, no one will use them. There's a reason items like the Piggyback and Marble Suit never see the light of day. Less speed is not a fun downside.

At least if they kept the inventory nerf it would've been justified that she could be more agile than others since she doesn't have so much stuff to weigh her down. Granted, they kept that mindset in mind with her moving faster with empty inventory spaces, but it's a buff on top of another buff. I liked the inventory nerf because it made you think about that resources were actually important to keep around and what could be left behind.

Well, yes, but when a 10 year old (Wendy) can hold more items than an adult woman it feels kind of wrong.. Though, in most of my experience all I would encounter is moments where I just have to drop items to pickup oincs, try to insert items into the navigadget and pew-matic to save space, pulling out my hair when having a full inventory in a dungeon trying to get relics.. For me it just took away from her whole "explorer" character because so much annoying situations just kept popping up which saddened me greatly because I am a sucker for games which you must input precise actions such as dodges to evade attacks and stuff so when I saw Klei added a character with a dodge action and a gun I felt like the character was made for me, but then the inventory management nation attacked... I am one of those people that has to think a lot about what I need in my inventory and that's with 15 inventory slots! So, managing Wheeler's 10 inventory slots was like deep frying my brain :wilson_dead:..

To be honest a smaller inventory size con would fit Wendy, Wormwood, Wilba, or Wilbur much more... I mean some of these characters don't even have pockets!! How are they holding so much?! I don't actually want them to have a smaller inventory. just saying lol

that's totally uncalled for

the devs have fixed tons or errors and suggesting never to touch SW is just based on what really... yes it was a buggy process.. etc.. but it works fine now...
