1. Heartpulse Formula

2x spider glands + 2 nitre + 30 health

This formula is like a telltale heart,with bonus points reviving at 100 health instead of 50, and without booster shot needed. The downside is that it doesn't restore sanity on use, but drains 20 sanity to the person using it on a ghost

Reason: as per his forge design, and the fact that new players die a lot, this would help for revives

 

 

Pretty good ideas overall but this.

You just took away a reason to raise a random player, why would I pay 20 sanity to help a random with something I didn't even make and honestly I don't even see any reason it would have any bad effect with that much material cost considering that the goal here is to help new player not having to deal with booster shot.

4. Trinitretolleus (crafts 3)

3x nitre + 3x ashes

Throwable gunpowder (like balloons)

It does 59.5 damage on hit, sets targets on fire after 3 hits in short succession, and no fire otherwise. Works in an aoe. These spoil in 10 days, instead of 3, and do not cost sanity on use.

Reason: for players that have issues kiting, this can help as a ranged attack with a cost of grinding. Numbers can be tweaked.

I do not agree with this because I think that players who have trouble kiting should engage in combat head-on to practice their potential, rather than use weapons that negate kiting entirely (will never improve at kiting using them).

New player would probably want to do it because:

A: They are probably trying to play with a friend that is also new

B: Or are being asked to by the person that got them into the game.

C: Less hp cost.

If they have no friends and are joining a random world alone, then most likely they won't even know that the telltale heart gives you extra sanity anyways, and will probably just use their perk (If it lets them know that they can revive players with it). Especially if it advertises it on the character select screen.

Also on the cost of the item, it's 10 health less than the booster shot + telltale combo, doesn't use rot, doesn't use stingers, but uses an extra spider gland instead, also if you look at the numbers that spider gland is basically worth 50 hp in this situation bc if you use a telltale you will only spawn with 50 as apposed to 100. 20 Sanity cost really isn't that much anyways though; it's just 4 flowers. You do miss out on the positive sanity gain, but most of the time, whenever I see newer players, they don't take advantage of this anyways.

Flowers respawn. It's a noob meme to think that's not the case

I like collecting butterflies and moths to respawn their respective plants.

Do that only for butterfly farms and bee boxes. Haven't found much use for lunge trees yet.

Was walking by, misread "Wilson" for "Woodie" in your post for a second there and nearly panicked.

IMO this is the true essence of Wilson.... they just called it "science" back then

I know that the idea of all these recipes using nitre coincides with the science aspect of Wilson, BUT having a Wilson on my team constantly spending Nitre on limited effects would piss me off to no end.

In that respect, the only suggestion I really like here is the throwable gunpowder. Edit: to expand a bit, though, I do think that if it were implemented, it should cost more rotten eggs or charcoal instead of Nitre, as Nitre is probably the more annoying thing to collect in the recipe, costing 3 essentially double-to-triples the cost of the recipe.

Nitre isn't something that I consider an expendable resource, and it's one of those things that seem like you can use it ad ridiculum in the early game when you really shouldn't.

Wilson should have only one power: THE BEARD
Let him do ropes with a beard!
Or torches with a beard!
Or sleeping bags whit beard!
Or beard armor!
Or beard coats!
Or beard rugs!
This is Wilson: a brilliant mind ... and a magnificent beard!

I think that this suggestion makes Wilson also scale better, with the fact in mind that beard hair can also be obtained from alternative avenues in the late game, such as cave primates/bunnies. It also gives him a little more syngery with other characters like Willow and Maxwell, who can force insanity for an advantage.

Personally, I feel like a Wilson rework should involve him doing the kind of pseudoscience we've seen him do previously, which usually involves stuff like live animals, meat, and his own facial hair.

Every recipe should be done with a little explosion, leaving Wilson with a burned face, messy hair, for half day or a day.

I don't think it makes much sense for Wilson to have a rework based around doing actual science, since a big part of his character is that he's really really bad at science, the entire reason he's even in the constant is because he accepted advice from a talking radio due to being really really bad at science. When examining an evergreen, Wickerbottom explains what kind of tree it is, while Wilson describes it as being "all piney."

 

Did he accept more than a simple advice ? Or only the knowledge for the portal ? Or much more, then he followed advices for the portal ?

If Maxwell acted on his brain, in some ways, Wilson could have some great weirds ideas.

i dont want wilson to remain as "default character" or "for newcomer"

I don't agree. He is the game mascot, and klei knows the stats and probably Wilson is most first played

default/newcomer character and mascot is different thing after all

mascot should have something interesting on itself, rather than being useless icon

i never said wilson isn't most first played, just not everyone played with him at first place
