    I hope she gets a total rework first.

    Real sad that Klei didnt explore some gorge/goat lore.

    You would think crop growing would be an important part of a vegetarian character from the gorge, but nope, just merms that punch things.

    first, wurt isnt from the gorge, she's just a merm. Unless theres some farout merm lore about how they actually first came from the gorge, then it's fair i guess even though by the time we see them in the constant i'm pretty sure they're far and away from knowing anything about their past.

    second, i feel like it's painfully hard to not see how wurt benefits from like, even a single farm plot? even growing food that isn't normally super good like eggplants or watermelons is still a pretty nice bit of food for wurt. How do you simplify her that hard and not see that?

    third, merms do more than punch things in comparison to other minions, they can mine and chop trees too. Granted, the animation is punching, but regardless they are thereby pretty useful for things that isnt just straight combat, and the fact that they take offerings as small as butterfly wings for loyalty makes it pretty handy to even have just one on hand. 

     

    also wurt goat skin would be cool but i'd rather have a skin that doesnt completely transform her and instead just changes her look like how the skins for human characters do, I like to play as default wurt skin over the other three, as i like the look.

    Yeah about that.. those don’t spawn in my world anymore. Ever since Wendy’s Refresh all trinkets have vanished. Like the Toy Crocodile or the Lone Glove. Since Wendy now quests to find ghostly trinkets.. I just naturally assumed that they were repurposed to be strictly a Wendy only thing now. *Shrugs*

    At least with Pig King I don’t have to kill boat eating Cookie Cutters for a % chance to obtain the thing for upgrading Pearls Hermit home.

    the trinkets you are referring to are special event trinkets. Real trinkets, stuff like the bent spork or melty marbles or frayed wires, you get from special places graves or hammering clockwork rubble piles.

    This is Ellie. She was printed at cycle 524, due to a need for more cooks. She has never known a single bit of stress or any real kind of strife, and on her first day of existence she chowed down on some mushroom wrap and got to even drink a smoothie. She hasn't ever walked more than a couple tiles out of the heart of the colony. She is amazing.

    I kinda agree with the health bar thing actually... I pinned a Bearger in a trap of frog rain & ponds and could just sit and watch him battle them.. but without knowing how much health he had left I had to GUESS when to move in and attack.

    For PC there are Mods for showing health bars.. and for other games- There’s usually a incredibly CLEAR Indicator of how close Something is to dying.. either by the large amounts of blood or ooze that will be dripping from its body, OR by the fact it visually limps around or showing clear indication that it’s hurt.

    I shouldn’t have to look on a Wiki page to discover Dragonfly has 20,000 Health Points and will be damn near impossible to do Solo, Even with my 14 Bernie’s & Sewing kits to repair them I failed.. 

    If I would had known it had 20,000hp, I wouldn’t have even attempted to pick a fight with it

    as skye said, the crab king is one of the few bosses here that specifically shows how damaged it is as time progresses.

    As for dfly, I strongly suggest that you simply build a wall with an impassable opening [IE a sign in the middle build in such a way that mobs can't actually squeeze through] so that lavae do not get through, and just kite dfly. She's tough, but not impossible to simply face off by yourself this way. I find that minions get in the way and drag her attention too much to be useful. Go in, hit her 5 (or was it 6?) times, and then move out for her to swing, and repeat. Use an ice staff or pan flute to calm her down if she ever enrages.

    When he starts casting the spell to summon the gyser you will attack a few times with the ice staff.  This will freeze him cancelling the attack so you don't get the holes in your boat.  Then you should only need repair kits to repair damage from the claws as you kill them.

     

    oh, i didn't know attacking him interrupts that! thank you for telling me, the crab king isn't so bad then.

    I'm not sure what tactics you are employing - but it seems a few ice staves can be used to cancel him out of his gyser attack.  Killing the claws is a bit tough solo without Wolfgang but possible.  If you ice the crab king when he spawns claws you can dedicate some time to them.  You will want some boat patches still, but it isn't so bad.  The healing is cancelled by spam attacking.  You can use weather pains to help with this, but just holding F isn't so bad.

    Note that you'll want to socket him with purple gems and the pearl.  Its the easiest form of the fight.

    how do you deal with the million, life destroying holes in the boat that spawns from socketing purple gems?


  7. In the current state that crab king is in, I frickin hate him.

    I think most of this hate stems from the fact that most of his attacks as I played with him (the claws crunching the boat, the copious amounts of holes poked in the boat) were instances in which you couldn't really stop him from doing a pretty big amount of damage to you. And to go along with that, he regenerates his HP super rapidly, so if you're playing alone, you can't really stop him from just completely resetting All the progress that you've made thus far as you attempt to fend off X or Y attack that he sends to damage your boat. To beat crab king, you'll likely have to bring a couple stacks of boat patches and a crudload of twigs to keep your boat shipshape, and someone else to stop him from healing as you constantly burn through this supply.

    I feel like I can live with the fact that you're simply going to have to drain that many resources to beat him, but It's really hard not to hate the fact that theres extremely little you can really do to stop him from healing without someone there with you. Kind of feels like it's harder than Fuelweaver at this point.

    Not super sure what you could do to make this fight better, but one thing off the top of my head would be to make it so he only heals 1 or 2 rocks at a time instead of like, 10, so he doesn't regenerate All of his hp, should you miss a point to stop him. But again that's just off the top of my head and a more thought through solution would likely work better.
