What is up with Hot-Headed???


Recommended Posts

Supposedly it's supposed to make him target aligned hostile mobs without needing to taunt.

I feel this is redundant, as he already attacks and draws the aggro of these things, making them come towards him. I am uncertain what mobs you'd benefit from having him approach, currently.

Normally BERNIE! attacks and taunts shadows and things targeting willow. This skill is supposed to increase it to all things lunar and shadow aligned as well, though there were a number of lunar aligned mobs that were not aggressive and likely should not be targeted, like Glommer, so they were removed.

Though it does seem in many situations these threats will have already targeted Willow, and thus BERNIE! will already be able to attack and taunt them. We're thinking of ways to make this more valuable.

Honestly think it’s amazing to see a bunch of dev comments directly addressing their thought process

Thank you lots for all your comments on all the posts recently! And for answering my question!

A better thing to be would just be do what Abigail does. have a radius where bernie aggros what willow is attacking. And if willow is not in that radius bernie ignores fighting and tries to get closer to willow. Thats the main problem Ive tended to see with trying to use bernie casually.  It would work better as a perk that gives the player more control over bernie.  since the intention and the practice basically end up being the same.

Maybe it is like a sucker punch, he makes them cocky and then BAM!

<а я=0> Обычно БЕРНИ! атакует и насмехается над тенями и вещами, нацеленными на иву. Предполагается, что этот навык также увеличивает его для всех вещей, связанных с луной и тенями, хотя было несколько мобов с лунной ориентацией, которые не были агрессивными и, вероятно, не должны быть целью, например Гломмер, поэтому они были удалены.< а я=1> Хотя кажется во многих ситуациях эти угрозы уже нацелены на Уиллоу, а значит, и на БЕРНИ! уже сможет атаковать и насмехаться над ними. Мы думаем о том, как сделать это более ценным.
 

 


you yourself wrote that Bernie will only hit those who are aggressive towards Willow, but when Willow has half her sanity, neutral nightmares appear that just walk nearby, but Bernie attacks them when the nightmares are neutral towards Willow, it would be better to remove the aggro on neutral mobs

That is because Bernie has, and always has had an interaction where he taunts and attacks shadow monsters regardless.  You may not have noticed before because you couldn't have him out if you were not also low enough sanity for these monsters to aggro on you.  Bernie would always taunt and attack shadow monsters that spawned on other players, or if you put on a bone helm etc.  That is not changed for this update.

you should do this more often.

anyways. hot headed should let bernie attack like 10-20% faster when attacking the aligned mobs.

Это потому, что у Берни было и всегда было взаимодействие, в котором он, несмотря ни на что, насмехается и атакует теневых монстров. Возможно, вы раньше этого не заметили, потому что вы не смогли бы его вытащить, если бы у вас не было достаточно низкого здравомыслия, чтобы эти монстры могли на вас агрессировать. Берни всегда будет насмехаться и атаковать теневых монстров, которые появляются на других игроках или если вы надеваете костяной шлем и т. д. В этом обновлении это не изменилось.

if the nightmares are neutral towards Willow and other characters, it would be better for him not to aggro, especially since this can interfere with the murder of friends who are specifically trying to finish off the nightmare to gain sanity, and then Bernie can finish off with the last blow..

might be better to replace with an option to pocket large Bernie instead

I support this idea, give Willow a cool fireball throwing animation where she tosses a ball of fire onto large Bernie that engulfs him in a large shield of fire that forcefully shrinks him back down to pocket sized.

I’d love to be able to force BERNIE! small again.
