The Curator Posted April 1, 2017 Share Posted April 1, 2017 Willow. That's just it really. As a Willow the Nerfed main, seriously considering to not play her anymore because of all the deaths her freezing gimmick causes. It's like, the ability to cook food on the fly is cool and unique; Bernie is useless most of the time, the fire resistance barely is noticeable, and sanity gain from fire is also not even noticeable. So basically, it's the freezing gimmick versus the lighter. Well, when you are getting chased by mobs that take minutes to proc off of you, great coding decision by the way super fun, and your sanity is draining and then you start to freeze. You are literally dead. Because it takes so long to set anything on fire that whatever is chasing you will just interrupt it, or damage you on top of the freezing sapping yourself. And even better, if you die while setting something on fire; the fire will destroy all your things when you die. Died trying to start a fire while freezing because no combat equipment versus four hounds that never de-aggro. Died again setting a fire while freezing because splumonkeys kept chainlocking with feces, because they're impossible to catch and kill without using obscure methods but they're impossible to function around because they steal everything. Super fun design choice again. Both times, lost everything flammable in inventory because the fire started on death. And then there are the numerous less mentionable times spontaneously freezing has caused problems. Because it is literally, your character has a low sanity pool; are you at low sanity, now your health is draining. Stop everything and start a fire. Which is fantastic when there are so many combat oriented sanity draining sources in the game, and so many enemies in the game have been coded to expressly make the game experience less fun. How about instead of making enemies chase you forever, or run from you forever, you add realistic and enjoyable challenges to the game. Why. Did the developers even bother thinking about what benefit there is to playing Willow anymore. It's been two years, and they still have not fixed her. Every normal character in the game has significant meta abilities, with almost no real drawbacks if you are experienced. Willow had spontaneous fire starting, which is an abhorrent drawback unless she is majorly powerful, and now has spontaneous freezing. Alright developers, you patched in a significant drawback to this character which is more severe then the ones for every other character. Now when do you plan on adding the significant benefit to balance this out. Two years this character has been blatantly incomplete. Alright, rant over, going to join a new server now not playing as Willow. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
