Definetely. He's become very fun to play - viable as well. I think some people were a little too quick to give overly negative feedback. Feedback is fine, but it should have been more constructive. Oh well, as you said, Klei did an awesome job with the rework regardless :)

Prior to the changes made Woodie was weak and awkward and his forms sucked for the resources spent.

They weren’t too quick to give negative feedback because it led to rapid and beneficial changes.

I think Woodie is currently in a great spot and I enjoy playing him but that doesn’t mean he was good right after the rework.  Most of the changes were numbers tweaks (though goose gained a grace period before fast meter drain and waterwalking) but there’s a reason 10 bananas for a dollar is a good deal but 1 banana for 10 dollars is not.  Numbers matter a lot.

ye but people almost burn the forum when Woodie only needed a few changes in these numbers. As said before, Klei needs constructive feedback

Idk man, I've seen much worse. Ever been in a Korean MMO community? Oof.

I'm actually enjoying playing Woodie though! Never thought I would. He was never to my taste, but jack of all trade characters get me every time.

I welcome the changes.

But please, cut back the play frequency of the new music. It is driving me nuts.

Sometimes people don't know how to channel their frustration into concise feedback. It happens and has happened to all of us until you realize giving logical ideas works much better than ranting like a madman xD

I LOVE playing as Woodie now. His Weremoose form is great for taking out anything that isn't like a raid boss (spider queens are my favorite use for the Weremoose, although frog rains and Antlion are both close) and his Werebeaver form is amazing at chopping down trees and digging their stumps. It's a lot of fun fighting stuff as the Weremoose, especially since you get to do it without using up any armor or weapon, just the cost of the idol and some sanity.

The Weregoose has to be my favorite transformation, though. It's silly, the music is great and it's the most convenient thing. On the surface, being able to run in quite literally a straight line from point A to point B with night vision, weather protection and more speed than a walking cane (without dropping your backpack!) makes it probably my most used form. In the caves, the lack of water to run on is balanced out by the fact that night vision is significantly more useful in the caves than it is on the surface.

These transformations don't really push Woodie's human form into obscurity, though. He and Lucy are really great at spawning Treeguards or doing some quick chopping, and he is better at fighting than the Weremoose when there's few targets and affordable armor & weaponry (I usually use Log Suits and Dark Swords).

Overall, I think he might be my favorite character now. His transformations are all very useful and good at their job, and they make you feel very powerful if you can manage to consistently restore all the health and sanity you lose from using them.

Never thought I “wood” (someone stop me) either.

I might be Woodie main now.

Sidenote, that video was sooooooo satisfying to watch and listen to, for some reason.

He had a rocky start but ended up great. Actually this has been the trend with all reworks except for Warly, whose rework was mostly liked and didn't go through a substential criticsm -> Significant change cycle.
