I must join to discussion after testing Warly (without godmode, first run alone, second run with teammate Wormwood).
And what i should say... He is NOT OP.
Pepper, onion, garlic and aspagarus are rare veggies (same rare as dragonfruit) and even with Wormwood it took for me whole first autumn and spring to get some pepper spices. Just think: if you have 9 improved farms, you need feed to bird about 5-6 veggies/fruits every time to cultivate ONE needed veggy/fruit.
His specific recipes nice and let him full focus at cooking and gain benefits from it (with cordon bleu he does not need Eyebrella, with glowberry mousse he does not need miner hat).
He good and balanced character, some hard for new players (cause he need to focus at food gathering at start of game).
Of course, when you have 1k+ megabase you can exploit with Warly... but this works with any character, no? For example Wickerbottom, which become powerful more earlier than Warly (say "hello" to her books, but we cant judge her, cause she did not get refresh).
So in conclusion i must say that Warly is perfect balanced character for current versions of game (beta and live). He has preferences for teammates (Wickerbottom and Wormwood) but even with them he nice balaced and works good. For solo player he can be some hard at start, but if you focus at cooking it will give you benefits for your work.
And I say THANK YOU to Klei for this great character refresh for DST.
