I appreciate some of the feedback here but the "this is terrible" posts aren't super helpful. If you don't like something in particular explain why, so we can understand how you feel more. 

Saying "no fire immunity is so lame" doesn't help a lot here. Because she does get fire immunity for a period of time with a reduced damage after that. CURRENTLY it's set at Immunity for 6 second and 50% reduced damage. 

But just saying "this sucks" doesn't help us think about how to address your concerns. 

Thanks.

Are we able to get an explanation why she doesn't have flat out immunity 100% of the time? That's whats confusing me, at least.

  • Bernie grows big and will taunt and fight most hostile creatures when Willow is nearby and insane.

Jeez guys Willow is now a better "TANKER" than Wigfrid!(Although it requires being insane..)

I LOVE THIS REFRESH

Also new Willow ruin rush meta is rising! With tanky bernie armies.

Joe, I would just like to say thank you so much for your work and the team's work. Frankly I think 6 second fire immunity is pretty fair and I can not wait to try willow out!

To updates and beyond!

First, please explain why she didn’t receive fire immunity 

Second, why do so many of these involve Bernie instead of fire

Because she is human and made of meat?

There's a reason why Bernie doesn't disappear when he reaches 0% because you can repair him with a Sewing Kit or some Trusty Tape. You don't need to stack Bernies to be safe.

  • As a drawback, make her sanity tank and maybe make her get cold if she's not regularly lighting things on fire. She's a pyromaniac she should need to light things on fire. And the challenge here is doing it responsibly so that you don't burn entire forests down.

Players would keep kicking other players picking Willow because they would know that these Willows are going to burn their world down.

We have a human that gains 40+ pounds when he eats food in a span of a few seconds.
Just putting that out there.

I just feel that removing her fire immunity was soely due to abuse as a griefer character. This nerf did nothing to stop griefers in general, and really just makes her useless.

I think everyone just expected permenant fire immunity like in singleplayer, the resistance perk doesn't really help much... Like at all really, and it also didn't help quell the griefer problem.

Where does having brief fire immunity come in handy? Larvae? This is the only thing I can think of off the top of my head. You should be able to utilize burning structures and objects for sanity gain, warmth and damage to mobs, it just doesn’t work if you need to dip in and out or risk killing yourself. 

 

This has nothing to do with griefing anymore as any character can burn down forests and bases, Wicker can even take things a step further.

Oh, so it was upped from the previous 3 seconds. Still, that's technically fire resistance, not full on immunity.
I just think if it were 100% all the time, Willow would benefit from it in a few ways, like in combat when fighting a burning mob, or by heating up by standing on top of a burning object so she doesn't freeze in Winter. With her new freezing penalty, it feels like she could really use that.

Honestly this one change would make me happy as a Willow main. Thanks for addressing all the feedback.

This thread is literally being trashposted to the max from the outrage

this is what happens when someone doesn't see "fire immunity".

Anyone can gain 40+ pounds if they eat 40+ pounds of food.

Fire has never really been a massive hazard and there's no excuse because of the Scale armor being in both games.

No? Not at all. The trick Willow needs to preform is making a designated burning area that's controlled for her to have fun burning things.

What will be the benefit of total fire immunity besides the obvious?

-Ability to actually use fire in combat (setting a mob on fire and then tanking it while it's panicking)
-Ability to capitalize on Sanity Gain (ex: a bunch of burning trees in a circle, and Willow in the middle. Without immunity, and with enough items/structures, burn damage stacks and can melt through your hp regardless of resistance.)

They said the exact same thing with Wortox, and also Winona.

 

If Willow turns into a character that can constantly use fire as combat, she'd be my new main. It'd also give her a niche of being able to basically stun and make fights easier, while at the same time not putting dropped items in jeopardy.

Wortox and Winona were full releases... That's not true

If you think about it Joe reveleaved only SOME features and many of our suggestions made it to the announcement. 

As for Wortox they already adjust him.. What other proposals do you have to change him? Or Winona?

Perhaps: You didn't see a newb in action yet.
