The people complaining about her lack of upsides were straight up wrong.  Like, their balance feedback was misinformed and unhelpful.

There was nothing wrong with Wheeler's balancing before, she just needed the 1 ammo bugfix.

its still not fun to find one extra extremely useful item (cloth, pig skin, blue feather, truffle, esc.) that came from a random drop realize that you need it or risk not finding it again dumping out your inventory to nab it go all the way to base clear out your inventory again go all the way back to the place that may be over 3 islands away just to get that one required item to progress yourself

Nothing wrong with her balancing =/= fun to play.

The latter is usually prioritized in singleplayer.

That's pretty much the point, it was a sacrifice you'd have to make while playing as Wheeler.

Maybe the character isn't for you then. It's ok to find a character that doesn't fit your playstyle. I rather have unique characters then ones that are all the same. You're not forced to pick her.

I agree that Wheeler needs a new downside (perhaps giving her a greater default speed boost, but losing a % of it per each inventory slot filled, with a maximum penalty that would bring her down to maybe 80% or so speed?), but I don't think it should be the old inventory space one. It only reinforced backpacks even more and was only a cheap annoyance once you reached the mid/late game.

Wilba doesn't fit my play style but i see worth to her unlike a unique thing that completely opposes what your play style is for

Wow shooting rocks does 100 dmg now. Wheeler got buffed big time.

Yeah... that's pretty overpowered to be completely honest, especially with the fact that you can stack even more now.

Big dmg - 100

Normal dmg - 75

Low dmg - 50

Even low dmg is pretty good now.

Not to add more to the bug talk but I tried to play as Wagstaff and was greeted to a lua error. Seems to be something to do with his Beefalo mount animation files? I've submitted bug reports for it.

For wheeler's downside, I'd say give her like 25% base speed, but for every inventory slot that is filled, she gets slower, probably like 5% or something. For a final downside, if her inventory is full, then she can't use dodge. Thoughts?

OMG WHEELER IS A MONSTER!!!!!!!! XD

Loved the buffs but I agree with the people that say she needs a downside (that won't break her fun completely), maybe lowering her stats? Or removing 3 slots from her and making her speed boost work as long as she is not using a backpack. But I think she is on a right path!!!

@HugoM They still seem to do only 20 dmg.

It never ends.

Also on another note, holy **** Wheeler just gets a free dirt (or rock, I guess) cheap blowdart machine now. High ammo should deal like 50, normal ammo 35, and low ammo 20.

The damage on the projectiles definitely needs to be toned now. She basically has a blowdart 24/7 now, and once you start farming rocks she's never going to run out. If not, then severely reduce the stack size on 100 damage items.

An inherent speed boost feels lazy, and I don't understand why she receives a speed boost for having empty inventory slots, instead of getting a speed debuff for having a full inventory slot. Rather than being penalized for hoarding, you're just not rewarded as much as you could be.

Well, it IS a debuff, however they phrased it positively so as to make it seem much better than it actually is.

Well I hope this means there are going to buff every other character. No downside is fine if they bring everyone else up to par.
