Wormwood the transcendent of nature


Recommended Posts

I've had this suggestion brewing in my mind for quite a while and perhaps now is the best time to unveil it.

Something that is always mesmerizing to me is the Wormwood origin short. In this short Wormwood's gem is wrapped by what appears to be a native hamlet jungle root. This root is the source of Wormwoods natural appearance, the twists, the dark green color, etc.

I've wondered what if Wormwood was to tap into that adaptive potential and do more with it? What if he was to allow his gem to absorb the genome of a fruit and then make more available that particular kind of fruit from himself. Perhaps Wickerbottom can help as she did Woodie.

How would this work? Wormwood would obtain a fig for example and place it in his gem. Then his ability to chop off a living log would be replaced with the ability to chop off a fig. This is the best way I can think of balancing it and perhaps rarer ingredients will demand more hp (to avoid an hp loop). Given Wormwood has a very large arrange of skins I think a good way to implement it is to change the color of his dominant "flower". A fig would make his mushroom skin have a purple tint at the top of the mushroom, a purple tint on his rose for rosette, etc. 

Going nack to normal would simply require him to absorb a living log now that they're renewable naturally.

Now I don't want to lock resources and the ease of obtaining them behind one character, so more alternatives should still be added (especially for figs). This would simply give Wormwood a unique way to support both himself and his team that isn't farming. 

Should more natural resources be added to the game that have non-food uses such as fig jam, this could be a wonderful way to boost Wormwood while also strengthening his ties with nature (which have been severely lacking).

honestly, as a wormwood main i would love such an ability, but i would be simply overpowered if a wormwood and wortox could just keep a whole team fed by killing butterflies or bees and getting pumpkins or something like that

I didn't think about that honestly... Let's make it so Wormwood instantly dies then since everyone is being a hater toward Wormy.

BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT THEY WANT. THEY WANT TO RIP MY HEART OUT. WELL YOU CAN HAVE IT. KILL ME OH MERCIFUL LORD FOR YOU HAVE NO PITY FOR THE WEAK.
