Suggestion - Spider Chester

Recommended Posts

As all Webber players know, Chester has a few problems getting along with spiders, which can be quite an inconvenience.

 

So, I suggest another transformation for Chester - Spider chester. Fill each slot with spider eggs (9 silk is far too easy to obtain, so 9 spider eggs seems more balanced), and Chester will transform into a form that does not draw any aggro from any variety of spider, and is not slowed by spider webbing.

I was actually thinking of allowing Chester to wear a spider hat. Or even better place 9 spider hats inside Chester and thus triggering a transformation if at night. Bit more harder to get.

9 Spider hats would be quite the challenge, even for Webber.

 

As Webber does have the ability to create spider eggs for a reasonable amount of resources, I figured 9 spider eggs was probably on a par with 9 nightmare fuel or 9 blue gems to acquire, and it's just a case of farming Tier 3 dens  for non-Webber characters who'd like the transform.

Great Idea!  I lean more towards the hats than the eggs though.  12 silk & six glands & 6 papyrus per egg = 108 silk 54 glands and 216 reeds, so I don't think you'll ever have to worry about someone manufacturing all the eggs they'd need.  I'd think it would be much easier to just get them from tier 3 dens.   What if it could be the hats OR the eggs.  Or even a mixture?

Well, getting 9 eggs is far simpler than 9 spider hats, as the hats require Tier 3 dens, plus a certain amount of hanging around for the queens to spawn, then killing the queens before they despawn, as opposed to just destroying the Tier 3 dens (or doing one hell of a lot of reed farming to craft them).

 

Given that 9 nightmare fuel is just farming 36 evil flowers (once you have the crafting station) or going insane and farming beardlings or the riskier method of fighting shadow monsters, and 9 blue gems can be acquired by both generic hound waves, McTusk farming, tumbleweeds, graverobbing, and spelunking - from a balance perspective I'd think 9 eggs is more in the same effort ballpark.

Nightmare fuel and blue gems are NOWHERE NEAR as important as each other. I only have like 14 blue gems or so and I am swimming in nightmare fuel, so yeah, having chester die and turning him back to shadow chester is not a pain in the butt at all, sinse I go down the ruins every so often as well.

Yes. Please. So many Chester deaths to my spider friends...

Also, spider hats really aren't hard to get as Webber. Just wait for a spider queen, gather an army of spiders, and KILL THE USURPER!

 No, because Webber not being able to obtain Chester is one of his MAIN downsides, like Woodie and Glommer, I understand everyone wants a furry, ugl... oh wait no.. not-so-cute, I mean 'cute'!, little chest of evilnes..., I mean friendliness and joy.

or make chester be filled by slurper pelt(it looks like spider hide), it's rare but easy enough to get

 

but with slurper pelt it makes it doable averagely

 

Unlike any previously named resources, slurper pelt is strictly limited, there is only about 10 at most in every cave. I'd stick to the eggs, or a combination of egg sacks and hats. Haven't ever played Webber, so duh, don't listen to me, about the second part.

you can easily have 30 in a cave, easily doable, or make the spider queen drops slurper pelt(1 to 2 per queen) to make it renewable

Seriously? It's slurper pelt, not spider queen pelt. If you have a good suggestion, then please say it. But if all your agruments consist of previously mentioned and else uninterpreted facts, conter other arguments by supporting them or don't make sense without further explanation/facts/ideas, I don't see a discussion enviroment.

Please don't take this as an personal insult, but as an highlight on why I don't appreciate that idea, and how you (and other readers) can make it better.

okay, i understand that making spider queen drop slurper pelt wasn't a really good suggestion...

but i can suggest another thing : spider queen drop only silk, spider eggsack and one new item(instead of spiderhat) : 1 dark gem(or spider eye, your choice :p)

with dark gems, you can craft :

-spider hat (2 dark gems and 3 slurper pelt, last lot longer than usual and can be sewed)

-spider chester with 9 dark gems

-moggles require 2 dark gems and can be "fueled"(more healed) with spider glands(like 10%or 7%)

-spider wand : 20 silk, 3 spider eggs and 6 dark gem : where you cast, it spawns a tier 3 den, 10 usages

What a great idea!!!

 

I think that 9 spider eggs are right amount and difficulty for Spider Chester. Also about color - since we already have white (spider web) and shadow (spiders) he can be RED (like spider mouths) with BLACK FEET (like spiders)

 

2 more pair of feet is too much to ask but that would be cool and true Spider Chester .)
