Wow, this is fantastic!

I have already seen Wendy's full potential against Bee Queen, Dragonfly and Antlion with my own eyes, and I know she's very good against Malbatross and Crab King too. But now I see she does really well against Fuelweaver too??

As a Wendy main who plays solo, I could not be more happy to learn that. The rework really did wonders for her.

Oh, and please tell me the rest of the run was also recorded! I would love to watch it.

Wendy should not stand at the same side as abi: both will take the damage, so Abi might die early.

thanks a lot, i was so confused in my tests because FW doesnt do aoe damage but abi always get banged in few seconds. You timing it so well to public this since i was thinking in try again with abi (with the results of my tests i just decided to kill fw only with wendy) but since i need to reset the ruins i will apply some strategies from here

Glad you enjoy this .I originally  made this run for one of my friend, who is playing wendy solo right now and struggle with the boss ( she refuses to change character or cheese). Sadly that my latop cant record anything like full run in 3 hours or it will explode, and to be honest ,I am not very good at boss rushes - I have to use some mods to help my terrible sense of direction, so it is probally someone else would have done it better with a full run.

I just want to prove : in the solo fight, not just Wendy can compete with Wolfgang, also she wasnt fighting AFW that well with normal method : focus on killing all the woven shadows, dodging the attack , make abigail becomes meatshield, using weather pain etc... She uses  other mechanisms which is different, fun and interesting ,atleast to me.

Also, me too . When my friend told me, he could solo as wendy, at minimum cost and without most important gears like : beequeen hat, sanity food , weather pain ,at 1st I didnt even believe he can do it (not because he is nub ), as well as Abigail can last to the 1st phase of the fight . But then we tested multiple times and find out what is the best way/minimun resources we could use for the solo :D . Another thing you might want to know , before killing the last unseen hand, you should check Abigail hp/ potion timer, because right after you take down the boss shield she will take some hit damage and it would be game changing if she already low on heal.

Is this considered cheese, though? The only thing you're exploiting is Abigail's AOE to kill most of the unseen hands as opposed to some hidden unintended glitchy mechanic.

now using advantages of a character is cheesing to justify actually cheesing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I've been playing more than a year now but it's still impossible for me to kill him solo as Wendy since she has 75% the normal damage. 100 times thank you for this awesome method :D. Only one question though, do I need to do the tentacle hole jumping trick to avoid spawning shadows during the fight? I feel like only one shadow is enough to ruin the fight

bring sanity food and the nightmere amulet. The video is about killing him with minimal gear, you dont have to pass that ninghtmere xd

I'm kinda surprised, but also not really surprised that the fight with FW is basically the same as the fight with BQ except that BQ is true single target and FW makes you run around the arena a few times lol

Abigail's AOE for killing woven shadows is not that good, actually, she works like a crappy weather pain mostly to me . It is the damage form her that is important, combine with Wendy damage they equal to Wolfgang to a single target . The only thing I think it might be a bug/glitch ( who knows the developers never clear about this, I thought the shadow creatures triggers spitters is freature for year, turn out it is a bug ) is when afw shiled is up Abigail might be able to stunt him, and block him form casting spell ( but also player/character can do this too if attacks him when shield is on). Personally, I think all of this method, is  a mechanic for just Wendy to solo with AFW, because this is really unfair to her, if she fighting without Abigail with traditional gears, she  is basically just a Wes solo with 150 hp, and to most people like my friend , the only way they can win is actually using cheesy methods.

oops, my bad on this one, i did not think of it . You explained it much better, It is not that wendy and abi have more damage than wolfgang in the fight, wendy doesnt need to waste time to kill wovens hands so her damage in the same period of time seems higher.

also, if anyone had the doubt, abi can resist pretty well toadstool mushboombs (she only get damage for 1 mushroom, the rest of explosions hits her shield) so she can help pretty well. What idk if the damage that abi brings covers the damage lost for kitting earlier (i was busy killing the frog but i notice that i pass every phase so quickly) , she was able to survive until 3rd phase without using any elixir (i forget to bring with me few -.-'). In the 3rd phase is not so difficult make abi to evade the earthquake. The only bad thing is that you want her a little far away of him if you wanna ice staff him because even in calm mode she will agro him because you are actually hiting him with the ice staff, also a little care with the pan flaute.

And i think that, even if the damage is a little less, with her you dont waste to much weapon durability than alone. without mods i cant confirm the total damage but i think is more

so seems like abi is good for almost every boss except few seasonal bosses
