Wormwood the Lonesome is set to arrive in the Constant next week!

Here are his details: (Some details may change before launch but this is what we are expecting. Notable changes in DST are marked with an asterisk*)

  • Wormwood can plant Seeds directly in the ground without using Farms.
  • In Spring, Wormwood blossoms, gaining increased movement speed, draining hunger faster, and attracting Bees.
  • Eye Plants are friendly to Wormwood.
  • Wormwood has a Green Thumb crafting tab:
    • Living Log can be created at the cost of 20 Health.
    • Bramble Husk provides 65% Armor and shoots out thorns when hit, dealing 23 damage in a small radius.  The wearer is also protected from thorns.
    • Bramble Trap shoots out Thorns when triggered, dealing 40 damage in a small radius.
    • Compost Wrap restores 30 Health to Wormwood.  It can also be used as a very potent fertilizer. *
  • Wormwood can use Manure, Guano, or Bucket-o-poop to fertilize himself, restoring 2 Health.
  • Food items do not heal Wormwood.
  • Wormwood takes 25% more damage from fire, and burns for slightly longer.*
  • Wormwood loses sanity when plants are destroyed near him (e.g. picking flowers, completely chopping or burning down trees, digging up stumps, grass, saplings, or bushes, etc.)  This excludes plants that are diseased or already burnt.
  • Wormwood gains sanity when plants are planted near him (e.g. seeds, flowers, trees, grass, saplings, or bushes, etc.)
  • Sanity effects from planting or destroying plants is reduced the further it happens from Wormwood.*

Wormwood can be unlocked in the following ways:

  • Wormwood is available for free for all owners of Don't Starve Hamlet on Steam.
  • Wormwood is available for purchase for $6.99 in the Wormwood Chest. Wormwood's Roseate skin set is included in this chest for free.
  • The Wormwood Deluxe Chest is $10.99 and includes Wormwood and the Roseate, Oasis Bound and Hollow skin sets.
  • You can weave Wormwood for 2700 spool.

And of course, we will have a new Wormwood animated short and more details When Wormwood launches  on June 6th. But for now, here is a nice image from the next animated short!

They can't. So monster meat only reduces sanity

Yes! Thank you so much for not changing much with the transition of Singleplayer into DST, The DST QOL changes are perfect!

Wait, is Wormwood himself still flammable? That was the only big drawback he had, since manure is plentiful in RoG/DST.

If we are worrying about griefing potential, just make it so he can't spread fire by being on fire himself.

We're getting a cactus skin?!

Also, interesting tablet. I wonder if we'll see some mants in this short...5bfe2c4bc698b_Arielthoncdiscord.png.5510791e124c2132fa82ba92b8d32585.png

attracting Bees.

But will the bees attack Wormwood?

It seems to me alone that not getting health from eating is a very powerful debuff? Maybe health will still be replenished by 1/2 or even 1/4?

This is killing me, no deep florest biome like, since it's limited to "Eye plants".

Also, no poison mechacnics for now, since he can't craft antidote.

 

But thanks!

You are assuming this from Hamlet, but this is not obvious here.

I think something or someone will touch that green gem and will become wormwood, he has the same gem on him. He or It might get cursed.
