I'm not sure if this was always the case, but certain mobs lit on fire are incapable of attacking. However, they will panic, making it hard to hit them. Willow can take advantage of this panicked state to land multiple successive hits without being counterattacked. Bosses (including treeguards) are immune to this, sadly.

The "blasting off" tactic from single player DS is now executable, sort of. Rope is better than grass, since you'll need to use the flingo after all the dropped items catch fire. You also need a client mod to drop all the items in one place. I don't think it's very viable though and I have no idea how the lag affects other players.

I'm very thankful that Klei gave willow some natural heat insulation, actually. It really lets her take advantage of fire immunity for extended periods, which would have been impossible if she overheated quickly.

Originally I was very skeptical this would be useful in any sense of the word but it seems to be amazingly effective against spider queens. However it's difficult to gauge how much more damage she can take before she dies and burns all her loot so it's difficult to pull off unless there is only one of them.

With 50 rope she'll go from 0% to 100% before needing to extinguish the rope. So as a one time investment it seems to be viable but a bit expensive.

Alright, that's a much better number than the one I got in testing, before the hotfix. Glad to hear Willow has her excellent sanity control back.
