  1. Higher damage than a spear, But still outclassed by Literally every other weapon in the game. Notably Tentecle spikes and hambats Nope, The DR is the same. The only difference is that Battle helms have higher durability Yes, and those are interesting upsides compared to other characters It's not just about not having a hard time finding food. It's about all the other stuff that She can't use due to not being able to eat meat. Admittedly this has been getting a bit less of a problem as more and more meat sources are added, but there's still a lot of stuff she can't use. She can't eat Mushrooms for easy health/sanity management she can't eat Butterfly wings, butter muffins, or Trail mix for early-game healing She can't eat like, Half of Warly's foods, including glowberry mousse or his tempeture regulators. Her only being able to eat meat takes quite a few options away from her. No, Not really. She already has low hunger and sanity, and only eating meat is one of the best downsides in the game.
  2. Difficulty in Don't starve is in a really... Weird spot. To put simply, 90% of the game's difficulty comes purely from the player's lack of knowledge. To a new player, food is this rare, difficult resource that you need to perfectly manage. But any player who's learned how the crockpot works will tell you that you can instantly solve your food problems just by living nexto a spider den and transplanting some berry bushes. Hunger is a challenge that is entirely dictated by the player's knowledge of the game. And this is a repeating pattern in the game aswell. Health is easy to get once you learn to skip healing salves and go for food such as Trail mix or Pierogi, Combat is (fairly) easy once you learn kiting patterns and that Armor is cheap to get and that even basic helmets quintuple your effective HP, Winter is easy once you learn that all you need to do to stay warm is light an occasional tree on fire, and the list just goes on and on. This however leads to a few problems. First of all, Despite Knowledge being the main driving factor in the game's difficulty, Is often very poorly conveyed to the player. While some things are fairly self-explanitory, Many item's functionality are extreamly hard to discern and either require downright excessive amounts of experimenting, or pure luck. For example, As far as I know, the only character who alludes to bird cages being used as a trading station is Wagstaff, meaning that the average player won't even be able to figure out how to use this incredably useful structure. Second, There are several items that are often percived as "Noob traps". These are Items or structures that are extreamly weak in function. And weather intentional or not, serve nearly no other purpose other than Slowing the progress of the new player. The two worst offenders of this are Walls, Which are expensive to build and mantain and are VERY easily destroyed by creatures. And Farm plots, which are extreamly expensive to build, and who's utility I belive is best described by comparing Fishsticks and Fish tacos As anyone who uses these forums can tell you, This difficulty difference is causing a massive rift in the playerbase, And I don't know how much longer it'll last if Klei keeps favoring one side over the other
  3. Leaked footage of the Wigfrid refresh is looking great
  4. Realistically, Wouldn't that make more sense the other way around? Wolfgang's just the strongman, a Circus freak if you will. The only thing his character has to do with combat is that fact that he can hit harder. It's Wigfrid who's the trained warrior of Valhalla, an actress so dedicated and such a skilled combatant she can leech the essence of her enemies. As far as what I would want from a Wigfrid re-work. I'm honestly not sure. I've said it before, But I consider Wigfrid to be one of, if not the best designed characters in the Game. Her perks are unique, she has a fun downside, and she's only recently been de-throned by Wendy as the most played character in pubs. I know mods can be a bit of a spotty subject for people, but @Toros' Wolfgang re-work mod does an excellent job of bringing in Wolfgang's "Strongman" theme to light while still letting him be effective in combat.
  5. last I checked, You basically need to put all the beenades on one side of the boat and then ram it into CK. Not sure about the Dwarf star thing though. It probably speeds up the fight, but I don't think they're nessesary
  6. TL;DR the Crab King doesn't actually have any ways to damage entities directly, all his attacks either Freeze, but don't damage, or damage boats. This means that the bees have free reign to sting the Crab until he goes down
  7. As has been said, Purple gems are chosen because the geyser effect is fairly easy to manage Use red gems and you're going to be fighting nearly the equivalent of Misery toadstool Blue gems and you're going to spend the entire fight stunlocked due to the freezing spells Yellow gems and you're not going to have time to react to the guysers Orange gems and you're not going to be able to hit him enough to prevent his healing and green gems you're going to have nearly a dozen claws trying to tear your boat to shreds while also having the HP to back the efforts up. Purple gems are optimal because the guysers are easy to cancel with an ice staff. None of the other gems have this sort of counterplay.
  8. I've never heard of Associating potatoes with Russia, unless you count Vodka. Usually It's Ireland that gets the connection. EDIT: Also given the timeline of the game, Russia really only started becoming communist in 1917,and the USSR in 1922. And given what we know, we can probably assume that Wolfgang would have entered the constant around 1918-1920, Given that the most we know about him is that he was in the army, Likely as part of the Great war.
  9. Wigfrid was the most popular character up until Wendy's refresh, at which point they've been fairly neck and neck
  10. Mod character. Tl;DR they could wear different hats to gain different traits to fit in with Various Roles. A concept that many have suggested for Wigfrid, despite how bad of an idea it is.
  11. And at last, The most-played characters list returns to Order Also re-posting this one due to the possible threat of relevency
  12. New short is definitly for Wigfrid. I just hope they don't pull another Woodie on her. Rest of the QoL changes are sick though. Thank's klei
