darkscaryforest Posted October 27, 2017 Share Posted October 27, 2017 Hello all, I'm a don't starve veteran, shipwrecked newbie (not the beta branch). I've looked and read many posts about dealing with hounds in RoG and shipwrecked, but I don't think I've come across any good solutions. I've finally gotten a successful save going at about day 120, but I am seeing a big problem unfold. For me, the definitive way to deal with hounds has always been tooth traps: -They're not flammable, so red hounds aren't a problem -They don't go to sleep at night, or well.. ever. They always work -You can make enough of them as time goes on. They were (until now) relatively cheap. Teeth seem to be much rarer in shipwrecked. In RoG, thanks to walrus camps, getting enough teeth for a tooth trap field was always possible. Further it seemed like Blue/Red hounds spawned year round so there's some guaranteed teeth with each attack to replenish the field. But in shipwrecked there's no walrus camps and red/blue hounds only seem to come in hurricane/dry season. My tooth trap field of 12 or so is barely getting me by (and sewing kits are an impossible luxury). The 10 or so hounds that come past day 100 is too much to face off against directly no matter how good I can kite. I think the hounds are triggering the traps faster than they drop teeth and I will eventually be overrun. I could try to hunt sharks, but the drop rate is pretty bad so it takes too much time and resources. Does anyone have any other creative solutions that are pretty solid? I could try using npcs like wild hogs, but usually they aren't viable in the long term since they're structures are flammable and they go to sleep at night. I don't mind any "cheese" type solutions that aren't cheating. I did experiment and have some success staying out on a boat using spear guns to thin a hound pack. Thanks for reading and any suggestions! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
