You ever see something you didn't know you needed until you saw it? Well after watching a Boxing Goose punch a pig in the kidneys I just had one of those moments. Thank you KLEI!

Woodie has a 50% higher chance to spawn Treeguards and Poison Birchnut Trees.

RIP. Woodie had a chance to finally beat Maxwell in the title of, "Best Forest Clearer," and it was thrown away. Treeguards are the only thing that stops Maxwell's shadows productivity since they don't want to be hit. Woodie spawning more Treeguards just means he has less time to actually chop Trees, making him even more out-classed by Maxwell... Actually, thanks to that one detail, I feel LESS inclined to chop Trees as the LUMBERJACK character.

The End-game was already flooded with Treeguards spawning in constantly, and in pairs of threes even. Now Woodie gets 50% more spawn chances. **Note: 50% higher spawn chance does not mean 1.5x Treeguards. 

Let's say that in the late game, if you chop 10 Trees on average you get one set of Treeguards spawning. If you chop 100, you would get on average 10 sets of Treeguards, 30 Treeguards total. Woodie with his 50% higher chance of spawning Treeguards after chopping 100 Trees would get 15 sets of Treeguards... 45 TREEGUARD TOTAL. Keep in mind, those numbers and chances are made up, but hopefully people start to notice just how big a spike that is.

We already have a character that can grow Living Logs, and another character to instantly remedy the HP penalty by killing a Butterfly. 1 Living Log for 2 people's time, and the killing of a single Butterfly, a great trade. We don't need to sacrifice Woodie's potential to clear a forest by increasing his chance to spawn Treeguards. If anything it should be lowered. Here's what I propose:

That simple change would give Woodie the chance to out-pace Maxwell's shadows, and take his rightful place as the LUMBERJACK character.

Sure Woodie becoming more than a gatherer is great, and so is his new-found ability to be productive in other ways, but he's originally designed as a gatherer, and now he's just worse at that job...

Maybe you need to throw Woodie into the ocean like on the animation and he will change.

You can craft special idols in the magic menu. 3 monster meat and seeds for the Goose. 3 Monster meat and 2 logs for the beaver or 3 monster meat and 2 grass for the Goose.

I'm glad Woodie finally have an update but there is a couple of things that bother me already:

  • As other said there is a huge lack of Lore, a shame. I'm kind of hoping there is an hidden video somewhere.
  • Woodie turn into a Goose. A Bird. Let me repeat that: Woodie Turns Into A Bird!! Blasphemy I say :wilson_enraged:

Well, if Woodie, which is quite a mysterious character in multiple ways (transformations, and Lucy), didn't get any lore, then I guess that means when Wendy gets her rework, we aren't gonna see anything regarding Abigail and her death?

When you do specific actions as that form the timer is slowed down before you transform back. For example weremoose if you fight mobs, weregoose if you are constantly moving, and werebeaver if you're constantly mining, chopping or digging for resources.

you need to perform actions related to the transofrmation in order to extend it. in Moose form you gotta fight to make it last longer

Weremoose can charge all the time without cooldown. It's not as fast as the Goose, but fast enough to dodge beefalo while killing them. A really interesting fighter choice, reminds me of Forge, when Woodie would draw agro and kite the most dangerous enemies.

It looks like there are no repercussions for constantly shopping anymore without the log meter. It also seems like transforming will happen much less often.
