If some of the new characters we get between old character refreshes could be imported from RoG/SW/Hamlet, who would you want to see reworked into DST? Pitching a few ideas of my own that still work off their already established attributes:

  • Walani – Fisherman, does a much better job at fishing than other characters (bites come much faster, uses less durability on rods, so on), finds rain to be relaxing, and deals with overheating better than most characters.
  • Warly – Chef, uses Crock Pots more efficiently and even has recipes that are far more effective for survivors other than himself. Could potentially have a crafting tab for making condiments that further improve the effects of food when used on them.
  • Wilbur – Fertilizer, spoils perishables much faster when not held in a backpack due to his lack of hygiene for a lot of Rot alongside his Manure dispensing. Could maybe come with some Banana seeds for that type of food generation as well.
  • Wilba – Pigman Specialist, befriended pigs stay loyal to her significantly longer, aggroing one doesn’t aggro multiple, and the Pig King will give her additional Gold when trading. Knows how to craft Pig Huts without prototyping.
  • Wormwood – Farmer, specializes in growing crops and plants, as well as access to some easily stackable healing/sanity alternatives to food. Can safely utilize Lureplant farms, doesn't automatically aggro Killer Bee Hives, and only takes slight sanity damage instead of health damage from Cacti.

Especially for characters like Woodlegs who are very clearly modelled for their respective expansion, what kind of rework would you want to see for imported characters?

Why is the first question single-answer but the second multiple-choice?

Anyway for me it's Wormwood or Wagstaff for both. Wormwood's ability to grow living logs would be great in an mp environment. Although healing would be more difficult as there is no Mud Spa to buy items from. Wagstaff would be similar to Winona but still pretty unique. His thumpers would make solid competition for Max and Woodie as well.

Wilba is the best’th character!

Also, make Walani have a skateboard instead of a surfboard.

Wilba shares competition with Webber as cute kid character.

Walani needs Wheeler's skateboarding dodges.:wilson_sneaky:

Yes.

EDIT: Ok real post now.

I'd probably most want to see Wilba or Wormwood appear in DST if we're talking a port with little to no changes, but for characters ported with a rework I think I'd like to see either Walani or Woodlegs. I think people tend to focus far too much on the "water" aspect of Walani when coming up with perks for her, rather then her personality which I think theres more to work with. Woodlegs is in the same boat here I think as like Walani the focus on perk ideas is generally too much on water or trying far too much to fit the "The Sea Legs" into the character in some capacity. I think the focus for him should instead be more on the greedy treasure hunting pirate part of his character rather then his ship basically.

For example Walani's perks could relate to her switching between chill surfer and fighter in an instant (Thought of this going off of Walani's battlecrys, which if you've seen them you'd know they are quite... vocal.), possibly dependent on a stat getting too low, or being a new stat of some sort (chill?) that makes the fighter side activate if it gets too low from getting hit or eating bad food and stuff. The two states could have different pros and cons with her chill side perhaps giving her things like a halved sanity drain and gain (like Walani's current -10% sanity multiplier but 50% percent now so it actually makes a difference.), slown hunger drain, inherent heat and cold resist, damage reduction, or even the ability not to flinch on attack. This would then be at the cost of then having things like slown speed, halved attack multiplier, lower attack speed, etc. Then her fighter side could make her have things like increased attack multiplier, speed, constant uppercased speech, a doubled sanity multiplier etc., at the cost of things like greatly increased hunger drain, higher sensitivity to the heat and cold, higher damage taken, and maybe getting the groggy effect for a bit on going back to chill surfer state.

As for her surfboard, make it a portable siesta-lean-to, as if it were to be a new stat that makes her change into a fighter state sleeping could be used to lower it perhaps. Likely would break after so many uses like any other sleeping item, and the amount over time it increases your stats wouldn't be that high.

Just an idea.

I feel like you should be able to unlock SW/Hamlet characters if you own the respective DLC’s. Sort of like a loyalty reward, if you have the DLC you get something in return for supporting Klei which is being able to play the characters in DST. (Seriously though, I want to have a whole server as Wilbur and throw poop at everything)

Yeah, let's those who buy the DLC able to unlock that chars in DST, that i think is one more good reason for player to buy future DLC.

P/s: Throw poop is one of many reasons i love playing as Wilbur.

These ideas would make Wilbur's playstyle be based underground ...

 

Brilliant, let's made Wilbur become the king of the UnderWorld.

Perfection takes time, nothing came out perfect in the first place (not that i know of, maybe there is), some say practice makes perfect, if you don't port them how do we gonna "practice".

One more thing, Klei don't have to handle those chars alone, just port them, then make a poll for each one and very soon ton of ideas will show up, they just sit there pick out the best suitable one, easy peasy.

Another change needed would be tweaks to Wheeler's items, perhaps through adding a durability to both items, to disallow her from becoming a simple pick-and-switch character.

I see many players who will play her if her dodge still grants invincibility. Just dodge at the right moment and the giants won't be able to damage you, especially Fuelweaver won't be able to hit you even if you're caged.

Walani could have perks relating to beefalo taming or something like that. For some reason she totally seems like she'd be the "horse girl" that everyone has encountered at least once in their life.

Well if you saw Warly's coming to DST in July so in general I'd say us getting the rest of the SW characters someday in DST is quite high! Especially since they said that suggestions and feedback are being taken into account for future character refreshes (which we now know counts ALL DS chracters seemingly not just the ones in DST) so honsetly at this point anythings possible here. :wilson_smile:
