Wormwood plant synergy ideas!

Recommended Posts

I really really love the first idea, craftables with farm crops! in the suggestion/feedback forum i posted an idea about making durians into grenades :D. The second idea sounds fun but perhaps asking for too much xD. 

Tbh im not sure if klei expected/anticipated having to make more changes to Wormwood with the release of this update (and within the time constraints, with everything going on + winters feast and Year of the Beefalo inching closer...) 

In an ideal world i think this update shouldve been released with a (and i hate to use the word at this point) mini rework to Wormwood, the character with an exclusive crafting tab called 'Green Thumb', what better opportunity? Reconsidering a major part of his character. Because in a world where planting seeds is more convenient and available to everyone it feels like Wormwood got 40-50% of the entire point of his character made obsolete. (He still has the most compelling downside of the cast and the ability to make living logs, two things i love (and bramble trap and armor which i like)). 

To wrap it up (and i might be biased :D) i think Wormwood shouldve been the character at the center of this update/the one who 'benefits' the most from it. As things are now that character is most assuredly Warly. Just like Wormwood farming is an integral part of Warly's kit, so he only got better. The same cannot be said for Wormwood.

One of my top 3 wishes tbh! i was really miffed when i found out the new ferts/compost had no particular effect on Wormwood, most of them only healed him for 1 even iirc.

 With the beta forcing klei to take a closer look at wormwood Im hopeful his rework is coming closer than expected.

Genuine question: aren't reworks/refreshes a thing for the old cast only?

yeah thats what i thought too but who knows. The new farming invalidates a big part of Wormwood's current design. We'll have to wait and see the scope of the changes they want to make to him

Well... Not sure. Technically he is old cast. Similarly to how webber/wigfrid are from ROG, warly is from shipwrecked, Wormwood is from hamlet. Warly has gotten lots of mini reworks as well so he may not get one. While wormwood has been mostly unchanged. Also keep in mind Winona got a rework almost right out of the box.

I also hope wormwood gets some changes to keep him up with the other charactes. Also, once klei is done with the refreshes, it would be nice if they made a final batch of  small tweaks to characters that are clearly underperforming, not so enjoyable to play as or frequently swaped for another.


Not all characters are created equal, but that doesn't mean there should be a huge gab between what they can do or that they should purposely be made to be stronger/weaker than others.
I see so much potential on wormwood, wes, wurt and other less played characters.
