    The best method to farm Krampus via Wicker's books:

    1. Set up a large Tooth trap field on a truf patch that also spawns red birds/ snow birds.

    2. Prepare armor, a Boomerang, and a melee weapon

    3. prepare Birds of the World and Sleepytime Stories

    4. prepare some heals and sanity regen

    5. REad Birds of the world

    6. Read STS

    7. Start whacking the birds

    8. When the birds start to wake up and the krampii haven't spawned yet, stop moving, then read BIrds of the World and STS ASAP so they don't fly off

    9. When the Krampii arrive, aggro them with the boomerang if the drops in the tooth trap field do not entice them

    10. repeat as desired


    Read REad Birds of the world x 2 + Sleepytime Stories x 1 *before the night falls*. Birds and krampus stay asleep during night time. Unless it is summer you should have enough time to kill all the birds and krampus alone.

    I think you can also do it by placing a bunch of fireflies sticked to each bee hive, the bees will consider the glow enough light to come out, although I haven't done this in a long time and im not sure if it was patched.

    I tested this just now. I am not sure if I have done anything wrong on this thou.

    Looks like the bee will come out, get to a flower, then realize it is dark outside and get back to the bee box right away. So no honey produced.

    I think to make this work you will need to put down some fireflies on top of each flowers as well?

  2. How to make beebox produce honey underground where there are not ceiling light.

    1) Use star staff  to get some lights.

    2) Plant some flowers.

    3) Turn flowers into evil flowers (haunt). Evil flowers don't wither even when there are no lights.

    4) place a bee box nearby


    5) bring some homeless bees down there as well. Homeless bees will help planting more flowers around the area. May sure you put down some scaled flooring to fire proof the area. Otherwise if a newly spawned flower near a star can catch fire and spread to the surrounding area.

    7) may as well build some pig house nearby. Pigs will come out during daytime.

    Before you ask, no you cannot spawn butterfly underground with this method.

    (Last I check this trick doesn't work with moon staff. Things may have changed thou)

  3. 1) light bulb +reeds + *big* tentacles: You can find the biome in the cave. Ideally you want to find a spot with many big tentacles and lightbulb. Reeds are optional because you can have reeds trap that gives you way better reeds farm. Build a ton of bunnyman house nearby. place a bird cage and 3~4 farms and grow carrot. Use 1 carrot to befriend a bunnyman, then order the bunnyman to kill the big tentacles in the area. grab all the tentacles spikes/ tentacles spot. Clear all the spiders as well if you want. Now build a seaworthy there, use it to teleport to SW

    2) snakeskin farm: Now find an island with tons of snakes spawner. remove all the flowers/trees/monkey. Cover the whole place with lighting rod. plant some Elephant Cactus next to snakes spawner. Go find the Seaworthy and relocate it to this snake island. build the skyworthy next to the seaworth, use the skyworthy to teleport back to your base. My snake island also have fishermerm house x 2 and some ponds for SW fish.


    As for the nettles farming issue:

    Sprinkler isn't that useful IMO. It has bad watering area, it require fuels and the fuel tank is small so I am kinda stuck with the thing to keep it refueled. The layout of the pipe is bad and hard to control. Forced to place it near a pond etc.

    My solution is to grow many nettles at once and make stockpiles of harvest during rainly season. In hamlet, it takes about 1 full year of rain for nettle to reach maturity. I use green book *while it is rainning* to mass produce nettles. You can use Telelocator Staff/Dripple Pipes to call for rain if you are really desperate for a harvest. Be aware that dripple pipes may not work in hamlet for the rain it produce may not be heavy enough to make nettle open up.

    Also this weevole farm:


  4. Pretty much all biomes can make a good base, thou some has unique properties to offer.

    For hamlet I usually just buy that Slanty Shanty and use it as base. It is way too far from every kind of resources/point of interest, but I feel like it is how I am suppose to play and treat the inconvenience as part of the unique challenge.

    In my current game thou I am building a mega base. I have decided to build my base at the 5th island for the following reason:

    1) No giants/Summer fire/Volcanic Eruptions that can destroy your base.

    2) Closest to the aporkalypse calendar

    3) Not many reason to visit other island once the whole world is looted, so may as well just stay on the 5th island.

    4) The lily pond is usually the biggest.

    5) Offer enough space to build.

    Also planning to build other bases. One at the volcano for the easy assess of obsidian workbench, and one in one of the ruins near Ancient pseudoscience station.

    I am unable to repro this, I spawned both in a Hamlet compatible world and I can hear them both move.

    It is some kind of sound audio shattering issue, which only happens after the update.

    With the moleworm, I was working on a moleworm farm. When say 10+ moleworms are tunneling I start getting audio shattering issue.

    With the Rabid Beetles, it happens when there are say 20+ of them chasing you deep in the forest. At first it is shattering, then lost of all audio including BGM music, weapon attack, getting hit and etc. Only gets better as bettles die and number reduced.

    Normally I would make a video to better explaining the issue, however since I am using on board graphic atm I am not sure I can record anything.

    I think this bug remains in Hamlet enabled SW world. In this case I have 1 x fish and 8 x gun powders. (I had a Blunderbuss made from Hamlet, fired 8 times in this world, then I found 8 gun powders here. Also some monkey I killed with the blunderbuss stolen some fish before so that may be related too)

    Basically my only qualm for Klaus is the lack of AoE (I understand it's to not hit the deer). The deer minions do make an aoe field per player, but it isn't Klaus' main source of damage at all. You'll take 2 ticks of freezing or overheating damage if you're actively walking out of it. You have plenty of time to exit it before they go off. The fact that you can have 1 person be taking all of Klaus' hits while the others wail on him seems kinda cheesy y'know?

    Klaus' spell can cast multiple aoe spell at once that targets other mobs/players on within range.

    Anyone else feel like Klaus giving various drops from other bosses (including blueprints) feels like it kinda defeats the purpose of the other bosses a bit? I think at the very least the blueprints are a bit too much.

    If you play solo, it is harder to kill toad, but then you don't always get the toad stuff from this Klaus either. For scales you can farm Dfly using bunny. If you kite you can kill Dfly too. For any other boss items (eyebrella and etc), it is just easier to kill those boss for the loot. So In a way it is the otherway around, that Klaus loot aren't special so players don't have that special need to challenge the boss. Klaus isn't that hard to kill, poss very little risk if a fight with Klaus gone bad. Hence I think the boss gift bundle kinda reflects the risk and reward.

    In public server, players will kill this Klaus for the additional boss items. Doesn't mean that players will leave the other boss alone thou. More eyebrella for everyone is always a good thing.

    I don't know if this is accurate, as he seems to have immunity times, as well as health regeneration. My values were way smaller

    try this:

    1) Host game

    2) c_spawn("klaus",1)

    3) c_spawn("shadowmeteor", 100) <-- do this 15 times. Put 10 x n times more meteors in if klaus isn't dead after 1500 meteors

    Then, try this

    1) Host game

    2) c_godmode(1)

    3) c_spawn("klaus",1)

    4) c_give("nightsword", 12)

    5) kill klaus with darksword, then count how many sword you have left.


    Both have very similar result. It may have been some kind of damage resistance causing this but the damage required is somewhere close to 75000 damage.


    Also try 

    1) Host game

    2) c_spawn("klaus",1)

    3) c_spawn("shadowmeteor", 1500) Put 10 x n times more meteors in if klaus isn't dead after 1500 meteors
