A long time ago, before “he” and “he” became “we”, there was a young boy and a monster whose ill-fated meeting would leave them both forever changed. Though Webber's two halves didn't exactly start off on the right foot, he has since grown quite comfortable in his combined state, and takes some solace in the fact that he’ll never truly be alone again.

Webber's character refresh arrives next week - Thursday June 24th (PDT).

Here are the details. 

  • Webber can now craft a Webby Whistle to help him control his Spiders. When used the whistle can:
    • Wake spiders up
    • Summon spiders from dens
    • Put following spiders in “defensive” mode
  • Webber can craft the Shoo Box, which dismisses following Spiders and pacifies attacking ones. Can only be used by Webber.
  • Webber can craft a Den Decorating Set. Once decorated the Spider Den will pacify the Spiders in range and make them friendly towards regular players
  • Webber can craft a Healing Glop, an AOE healing item that only affects spiders
  • Webber can craft Switcher Doodles which mutate spiders into a different type once fed to them
  • Spider Changes:
    • Spiders can wear hats now
    • Spiders can be put in the inventory from traps or by Webber when they’re asleep
    • Attack is no longer the default action against spiders when playing as Webber
  • Webber can sleep inside Tier 3 dens now
  • Webber can shave dens down to downgrade them
  • Webber gets a speed boost when on sticky ground
  • The Spiderqueen now spawns a new type of Spider: the Nurse Spider

Of course as always, we will also have a new animated short, new skins and we'll add a new item to the Nautical Collection streaming drops as well.

We are still adding more people into the new Klei Advocates program. We will have more information on that next week as well. 

One last thing. The "big pile o' spool" is now available on Klei Rewards. You can now buy 1500 spool for 4000 Klei points. Don't spend all your spool right away though, new skins are coming next week! Oh, and here are some points! (expires in 7 days)

See you next week!

The only thing im not 100% down with is being able to pacify spiders against other players, otherwise this actually sounds really awesome!

I'd hoping for another "monster"-esque perk like sanity drain during the day instead of night, but this is... alright.
