- Can shave his beard for (1/3/9) beard hairs based on the stage of the beard

 

Synergies: Can easily obtain Beard Hair for Willow's Bernie recipe

 

WX-78: WX-78 has no helpful perks that benefit anyone other than himself and costs his team gears if he wishes to upgrade himself.

- Can eat gears to heal (60), sanity (50) and hunger (75)
- Can eat gears to upgrade himself from 150 of each stat to 400 Health, 300 Sanity and 200 Hunger
- Gets immunity to freezing, heals 100 health, +50% speed increase and a light aura when struck by lightning

I personally don't see why Wolfgang is higher than WX. I think they should both be a bit low on a "co-op" basis.
I feel that wolfgang and WX are basically the same but in different ways... for example:
Wolfgang does more damage and has more speed, but uses a lot of food...
WX has more health and has more speed, but uses a lot of gears...

So as much as I agree that WX should be F, in all honesty, he should be on par with Wolfgang just because WX has some 'points' that are about the same as what Wolfgang in this list has.

For example:
"loses sanity from lightning, making it easier to farm nightmare fuel"
"emits light to help protect people at night"
"can use overcharge speed to explore the map better" (except its not easy to get in the first 10 days..)
"can help tank bosses with his high health and easy healing"

WX is still a terrible team player, but for this im more saying maybe wolfgang is just a bit too high because of these inconsistencies (for now, obviously, seeing the rework for wolfgang is so soon)

I agree Wanda is extremely powerful, but I'm not sure how she performs with obtaining wood and rocks and such. I know she can use the backtrek watch to cut her travel journey in half, but apart from that there is nothing in her kit that makes her better than the standard character, plus that watch has an entire day cooldown so she can't make many trips to and from the area she is harvesting.

IMO Walter is similarly good to Wanda for getting materials because Woby gives quite the speed boost which helps with getting back to the areas you need.

Also Woodie is very strong at the start and while he is my favourite boy, he does kinda start to stink at the end of the game because of his generalist role, you only switch to him when you need the wood. Also don't underestimate the beaver's ability to mash rocks.

No beneficial perks besides being able to supply his entire team with meat effigies consistently. He's no Wanda, but definitely not F. The insulation provided by his beard also allows other players to take winter gear over him early game, if resources are tight. Wilson's a solid B.

Doesn’t matter how good a characters “Kit” is if the person playing as them isn’t good themselves..

Ive watched my Woodie friends starve with an Inventory full of Birchnuts.

Ive Watched Wendy players die miserably the very second they can’t rely on Abigail (this goes particularly double true for players on Xbox & Playstation who need to be close enough to Abigail to interact with her) 

And Ive seen Wes players single handedly supply an entire server of players with winter gear and food.

The player makes the experience- it’s not and never has been the other way around.

YOU put Warly in a high tier- but let ME play as him and you will call Me utterly useless.

Ok so point one,

Soul hopping in the same spot is good because:

You get invincibility frames and can continue hitting faster due to not having to run back

And exploring the caves as Wortox is impeccable, and with finding the lunar island or crossing bodies of water.

Point 2,

Wurt's empowered merms in practice are very beneficial in terms of the resources they require to be invested into.

They hit hard, they move fast and cost but a measly seed to befriend.

It just takes time

Point 3,
Maxwell requires nightmare fuel to farm, Woodie does not, and I've never mentioned Woodie being a better log collector, just a more versatile character.

He can explore, fight AND gather logs.

Maxwell is a rock/log farm with 75HP.

Wolfgang is more useful due to his insane double damage perk, he can delete bosses extremely fast to obtain important resources for his group...

As I mentioned in the post.

Meat effigies are one of the lowest tier items in the game, especially for revival, they may revive you, but you do not keep the items with you, they stay where you died.

Meanwhile life giving amulets are just so much better, and more practical.

Yes but the topic at hand isn't player quality... It's character quality...

Ofc we are assuming the player is competent, you cannot base tiers and quality on incompetent players.

first off void walking second off regular kiting is better since it isn't limited and getting more hits in works on literally only deerclops the easiest boss in the game and boat bridges will get you around faster once you set them up

maxwell starts with nightmare fuel and his low health doesn't matter if you're skillful enough and woodies quote on quote versatility falls off when his goose is useless after finding lunar island his moose form isn't good when all bosses melt and his beaver form is outclassed by woodie

They're always good to have if all else fails though, and they're nice in the early game when you're not making amulets yet

Still require a resource that could be used for Bernies whom PREVENTS dying.

And if all else fails... Well... Roll back?

They're really just not good, simply due to the fact that they leave your items God knows where.

Walking back isn't so bad, I never said they were the best revival method but they're nice backup, and again helpful early

We do not take glitches and bugs into consideration when deciding tiers, so void walking is off.

It's been proven that soul hopping in place saves time and helps get more hits in. After you run out of souls you can just continue kiting as usual.

You can dodge many things with the soul hop, such as the Crab King ice attack. It is a very powerful tool.

Hence why I said that Wurt is an INVESTMENT. She is simply a late game character, and buffed merms CAN deal with aoe bosses quite easily, don't underestimate their DPS and stats.
 

The issue with Maxwell being better with log collection is... Unless you're mega basing, you don't need that many logs.

Moose with Jelly beans or even Garlic Spice is very good for fighting, And Woodie and beaver serve 2 similar purposes.

Woodie is there to get that 200% treeguard spawn chance, while Beaver spawns none.

And Goose is just plainly consistent, being able to run around the map freely is always gonna be useful, no matter what. Just keep a meaty stew on you.

Also Meat effigies aren't good early due to costing HP to link yourself too, even a telltale heart is better, it even fully regens sanity for most characters.

yet you brought up roll backs the abuse of a mechanic and even then its in the game so i consider it fair game

don't overestimate them theres little reason to make them since this is a team tierlist bosses already melt

base woodie just isn't worth it when maxwell exists even with the treeguard chance wurt chops faster than woodie and her merms demolish tree guards while with woodie he'll have to kill the tree guard and then continue chopping

the day dst players realize that every character can ultimately fulfill almost any role if you know how to play them right will be the day i know peace

EGGSACTLY! If you're good enough you can do anything, but the issue here is that we're judging the quality and place of characters based on stats and experience, as well as rigorous testing, but we do acknowledge the fact that a Wes player can defeat any raid boss, and a Wolfgang player can die to starvation. The point is... That player quality isn't the point, the character quality is.

if you're good enough the difference between characters in 95% of situations is either minimal or nonexistent

Overall it's a good analysis but I'd bump up Winona and Webber up a tier and move down Wormwood a tier.

For Winona, her catapults are useful in a ton of situations and builds. They provide as much, if not more utility than Wolfgang's monstrous damage and Wickerbottom's abities. Not only serving as perfect assistance in Beequeen, Fuelweaver and the other bosses but also making trap areas for hound attacks, farming creations for shadow pieces, vargs, bunnymen, werepigs, tentapillar destruction and many more. Fast crafting is extremely helpful in megabasing. And her trusty tape doubles as a very cheap sewing kit and boat patch, as well as synergizing with Willow in providing her with easy bernie/ashley restorations.

While Webber's spider resources can be obtained by other characters, it doesn't invalidate Webber's abilities in a team, he is still great at keeping spiders around the world in control with periodical shavings with razor and de-aggroing them with the blow of a whistle. He can have an army of infinite spiders with almighty nurses that practically outperform all other minions thanks to their indefinite loyalty, as well as giving Webber infinite healing.

And Wormwood is a great farmer but such huge capacity farming provides diminishing returns; any character with ample agricultural knowledge can effectively farm good enough with RWYS farms and thus I wouldn't rate his role as irreplaceable; of all the entities, fruitfly replaces him in first spring. Wanda and Warly really offers such benefits that cannot be matched by other characters: buffs, unique foods with effects, teleportation to anywhere, cheap infinite resurrection. Wormwood just saves a few tilling time and materials. I still think his greatest perk is his armor, which provides an unmatched tentapillar destroyer, something not all other characters have as easy access to as farming or trap areas.

Wortox should be placed down a tier or two aswell, while his healing provides a great support, it's not irreplaceable by any means given the plethora of healing options in the game.

Wickerbottom should be higher, I'm sorry but wicker can:

1. Make the most efficient tree farm in existence using Applied silviculture, Bearger and birchnuts, it's output cannot be matched.

2. Can gather insane quantities of monster meat, tentacle spike's and spots using Bunnymen and On tentacles.

3. Overcharge WX and turn them into a 24/7 ruins rusher even during winter.

4. Can rush the ruins very efficiently due to tier 2 science being able to be unlocked with science machine.

His beard production is completely outclassed by Wendy afking in the monkey biome for a day.
