Willow Character Update and More!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

Here we are with our second character update! We have a few things to share, from Willow’s character refresh, to new skin sales and Twitch campaign.  

Here we go!

From the Ashes
Every character has their story, and with each refresh, we will be revealing a bit more of their past. See what memories Willow has to share with you here:

Willow Refresh
With the memories of her tragic past reignited, Willow has tapped into formidable powers for her childhood friend and protector, Bernie, as well as receiving full fire immunity and other bonuses. 

  • Willow is now immune to fire damage.
  • Willow is now more easily frozen (e.g. by Ice Staves or Deerclops).
  • Willow no longer gets cold from low sanity.
  • Winter gear is slightly less effective at keeping Willow warm.
  • Willow takes more damage and loses sanity at freezing temperatures.
  • Willow takes longer to overheat and less damage when overheated.
  • Willow takes no burn damage while extinguishing smoldering fires and does it faster than others.
  • Adding fuel to fires is 50% more effective.
  • Bernie can now be equipped by Willow for sanity and warmth at the cost of durability.
  • Bernie grows big and will taunt and fight most hostile creatures when Willow is nearby and insane.
  • Bernie will still taunt Shadow Creatures when any other player is nearby and insane.
  • In addition, Willow still gains sanity near fire and can still cook with her Lighter.

Willow’s Guest of Honor, Triumphant, Survivor and Rose Skins can now be purchased and are all now available for purchase. All owners of these classic skins prior to today are now upgraded to an “Heirloom” rarity, with full unraveling value (that is, an Heirloom Elegant can be unraveled for 1350 spool).

Willow also has some new items that can be dropped, weaved or purchased.

The Ghastly Attic Chest can be purchased for $3.99 and contains Ashley, The Cursed Sterling Lighter and the Baleful Lace Parasol.  The Willow Deluxe Wardrobe contains 5 of Willow's item sets, including the new "Forlorn Doll" set for $12.99

Drop Changes
We have removed icons, vignettes and profile backgrounds from the drop table. These items are still weaveable, however you will no longer receive them as drops. In addition, we have added about 100 color and slight variants of many existing common drops.

Originally we added the icons, vignettes and profile backgrounds so that we had more items to collect, but as many of these items were seasonal items, it gave the appearance that these were being dropped unintentionally. 


New Twitch Campaign
We are starting a new twitch campaign with an entirely new theme.

That's all we have for you this time. As always we will be watching your feedback and bug reports. Have fun out there!

Guess the first thing I'll do as Willow now is to hide myself in a Bush Hat to farm Nighmare Fuel while being afk.

now everyone will bring their Wilson friend to make the ashley! or even.. hunt the beardlords and spelumonekies down..

+ they will also bring their Winona friend to take dah flex tapes.. heheh

Tip : deerclops can freeze Willow with 2 straight attack, but there's an absolute solution, like this:

you can avoid get frozen while there's something burning under your feet, like a rope in the screenshot.

also willow can make her own sanity station - 100 stacked ropes in flingomatic's range. you can put the ropes on fire and get sanity boost for 30 seconds, after that you just need to turn on the flingomatic. like this:

note: you should need chilled amulet to prevent you from overheating.

Am I the only one who kind of wanted the ginger lady to decapitate Bernie.

Just tear off his head.

Jokes aside, everyone has done such excellent work again, and we're always grateful for the fact that you a) do such great work and b) are always looking to change things to improve the experience of your players. Thanks again!

Out of curiosity, is it possible for starting items to have skins, or do they need recrafted

Unfortunately they'll need to be re-crafted at this point.

Good on yous for bringing fire immunity back!  A good community-requested change.  Nice to see Klei is listening.  Now, I just cross my fingers my boy the Werebeaver gets similar lavish treatment...
