Willow: The Good, the Bad, and the Tall, Dumb and Stinky bear.

So uhm yeah- Willow has a lighter that instantly cooks foods for her- Bernie is tied directly to how sane or insane Willow is: And therefore- Klei expects everyone to know how to use that lighter to instantly cook the many sanity gaining & losing items (most commonly mushrooms) 

Having a way to deactivate him when his entire gameplay is designed around your sanity would just be confusing…

I also highly disagree with calling Willow the Pyromatic, because I’ve never seen her actually be able to Jean Gray Aka Phoenix from X-men and hold a Floating fireball above her hand- And if she COULD she wouldn’t have ever needed a lighter, or a torch or heck even a lantern because well uhh hello! Kinetic powers to make her own floating miniature sun orb to follow her around.

Bernie once he dies can be repaired outside of Willows inventory just walk over to the dead stuffed doll with a sewing kit or Winona’s duct tape in hand to restore him instantly back to 100% durability.

What this means to anyone who actually cares to utilize it? You can craft multiple Bernie dolls, sit them in a circular pattern a safe distance around a boss like Bee Queen or set them early and lure Deerclops/Bearger to them later.. And as you said when ONE Bernie Dies another nearby will Enlarge into BERNIE which gives You time to sneak past the distracted bad guys and use a 100% repair on your downed Bernie.

I absolutely love Willows rework & if they changed anything about her at all: it should be letting her lighters be refuelable with the very same nightmare fuel she so easily amasses in Bulk.

If Klei was to Re-rework Willow into an actual pyromaniac instead of what she is now- And just more like the “Fire Immune” Then they would also probably need to remove her lighter because it wouldn’t make any sense to have it anymore..

Bye Bye cool lighter skins I paid for thanks for existing for a little while. But since Bernie’s Large & Small forms are tied to how sane Willow is- They would have to give her magic floating fireball powers the ability to instant cook foods.

Thats LITERALLY Why her lighter has that odd little perk.

Now in final conclusion- Willow in all her trailers, animations or loading screen vignettes is always seen holding some source that STARTS fires- Torch, Lighter etc.. All of those instantly become non-canon when she could have just X-Man powers summoned a floating flaming ball of light above her hand.

Willow no being able to activate BERNIE! on the lunar island is a huge bummer.

Willow cant use the enlightened crown and BERNIE! at the same time which I find unfair.

An item that allows her to activate BERNIE! at will would be cool (outside of insanity inducing items).

Maybe Willow could place the shadow atrium inside bernie.

Personally it's always bugged me that Bernie! doesn't help Willow when she's under attack by shadow creatures only when she meets the sanity criteria since that's really his main purpose.

Pyromaniac doesn't mean "ungodly fire powers", it means an obsession with fire. Willow is a pyromaniac because she is obsessed with fire, as shown by her quotes and her gaining sanity not because she has super powers, even though that would be super cool.

 

Perhaps the fire weapon could be some sort of flaming sword?

Have it warm you and set anyone who doesn't have fire immunity (from scale male or playing Willow) on fire, perhaps. This would give scale male an actual use outside of looking cool.

Maybe make it a light source, like the morning star. If it is refuelable, make it take twigs and grass as kindling?

I'm not the best at balance. Feel free to share any ideas (and tell me why this is a bad idea).

We. Need. More. Willow threads.

I don't get why having a whole fire gimmick and having no fire based abilities. The rework felt not great but I feel like Bernie's pretty dope. Unlike other reworks or new additions me as a cripplingly old Willow coven main I just look at others and say "mmm, wow, where's my powers..."

Saying again, Bernie is nice, but fire thing and no fire abilities for Willow is like no?? why nothing more?? :(

Because as I was trying to point out, and as people later corrected me on- Willow doesn’t actually HAVE any fire based abilities, she is only Immune to fire.. not capable of summoning fireballs with her Farts (old school Mortal Kombat Joke by the way..)

What I meant to say with my post is Willow isn’t a Telekinetic Super Powered Mutant: She can’t float into the air and gain flaming wings to fly around the map like Woodie in Goose mode.

Instead: Willow always needs a Fire Source to Create a Fire.. (Lighter, Torch, Match etc..) So her only power related to fire is that she’s Immune to it, and NOT capable of summoning it out of thin air.

That isn’t to say that Klei won’t eventually take her down this path: Fire Immunity is usually the start to Telekinetic Fire controlling super powers after all- BUT they would have to explain it away through LORE & Progression and by probably unlocking some hidden knowledge inside of Willow..

It just makes needing a lighter at all and all her current vignettes obsolete.

Now as for my OWN Suggestion.. I would like to have Willow be able to light large Bernie on fire with her lighter.. and enemies burning Bernie comes into contact with takes Damage over Time from a magical fire (possibly from the lighter itself being magical) that DOES NOT Spread all over the map destroying everything in sight but rather only deals DoT to the mobs Burning Bernie attacks. Burning Bernie would obviously lose durability faster but the extra damage he deals while burning makes up for that.

This also fully explains the Burned scorched marks all over him.. so uh yeah.
