The Immortal who died. in [Don't Starve] Suggestions and Feedback Posted December 21, 2012 Well, the rationale for hounds attacking them rather than spiders is that you can't dictate your proximity to hounds and they're the only enemy I know of that will ignore Wilson to eat meat. I don't necessarily think they should prioritize Effigies if you're close to them, but if you're nowhere around, they should go for the easy food.Another idea I had. Instead of losing permanent health whenever you resurrect at an Effigy, what if you lose permanent health when you make the Effigy and are only returned a portion of that when you come back. Say, you lose 20% when you make one and get back half of that when you use it. Take Wilson and have him make 3 Effigies. The first time he loses 20 max health, dropping him to 80. The second time, he loses 16 health, dropping him to 64. Third time, 12 (rounding in player's favor and for easier math in a sec), so his max health is a dismal 52.He dies once and regains 6 max health (58). Dies again and regains 8 (64). Dies yet again and he's back up 10 points (to 74 total). It'd be punishing whether or not you actually die and it would definitely prohibit spamming Effigies while firmly putting the choice in players' hands.
