Lore opinions from a Maxwell player for the future rework.

Recommended Posts

Given that William has more known lore than any other playable character, i agree with this. I would love to see an animation that takes place during a time where (at least some of) the survivors are already in the constant. Maxwell would be the perfect chance to do something like that

I wouldn't bet on getting your dream rework. I put out a poll before the wigfrid rework went live and an overwhelming majority wanted new weapon and armor crafts for her. 

Spare yourself and keep your expectations low.

Maybe it could take place during the train incident

Wigfrid update was strange bc we didn't even know whe was a singer before it. Would I like it if I know it, no probably. I just hope they don't kill the Maxwell.

And about Woodie, they make just turned Woodie into a new character. He is nice but not Woodie anymore.

Well, we didn't know the opera part I think.

Though that was heavily hinted with She Sells Sea Shells, where Wigfrid was the only character who could distinguish the notes each Singing Shell was tuned to.

Uhmm, that's a bit hard to realize. I mean I didn't ever take a shell in game

What exactly is that in response to? No one ever doubted her being a viking.

She don't have to be a singer to wear like wiking. I mean she could be a theatre or movie actor.

I would love a timelapse cartoon showing his transition from William to Maxwell while ending with his defeated look on the throne. The throne draining him towards the end.

I don't think they killed wigfrid for the record, but as someone who plays wigfrid 99% of the time, It wasn't one I expected given my ideas for her to boost the team outside of circumstances that weren't just boss fights.

I don't know what they'll do for maxwell and I can't predict what they'll do with him because what a majority of players who voiced their opinions of what they wanted and expected out of the wigfrid update, they got it entirely wrong. 

It's safe to guess it will be the case with maxwell. The thing with maxwell is there is a lot more to play around with when it comes to his character more than almost anyone else's. They can make him more in tune with shadows, the ancients, give him a larger combat niche while dropping the chores aspect of his existence which may work out, but then you piss off the gofers who actually like to do chores.

Maxwell is perhaps the hardest character to rework. Fingers crossed they don't kill him, I don't expect him to die, wigfrid's update didn't kill her, but I won't say I wasn't disappointed

2/3 of Maxwell will be mostly the same, except the shadow Maxwells

* doesn't start with Nightmare Fuel or Codex Umbra

* passive sanity gain (6.67) & 75 hp

+ nightmare fuel cost 2 instead of 4 dark petals (Maxwell only)

+ knows all tier 1 magic

+ loses shadow chopper but shadow duelist is stronger
