      Klei Winter Availability   12/17/2018

      Klei Entertainment support staff will be out of the office from December 24th and will return on January 2nd in observance of Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukah, Krampusnacht, Holiday, Newtonmas and/or Festivus. During this time; support staff, development, janitorial staff and animal handlers will not be in the office and will instead be in their homes or somebody else's home, doing whatever it is we do when we aren't in the office at this time of the year. Some of us will be around on and off and we will be monitoring servers, tickets and forums to make sure nothing explodes; but we will not be running at full capacity until we return on the 2nd. We have put together some information about our most common issues that should help you. And here you can find a list of resolutions to our most common issues on our support site: https://kleisupport.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/1398961 You can also find a resolution to most tech support related issues or general questions on our forums: http://forums.kleientertainment.com or on the support site at http://support.kleientertainment.com. Generally an answer to most every question you might have can be found in both the support site and forums. If you do not find the help you need on the forums or on our top issues list, send us a ticket on the support site. We will prioritize issues that require immediate attention, so if your issue isn't time sensitive it will take a little longer before we get to it but we might be in the middle of an argument with our Nana that we really do like the the set of fuchsia towels she gave us last year. We just keep them buried deep in the back bathroom closet because they are so nice we don't want anybody to mess them up. Thanks for your patience during this time. Happy whatever holiday you do or do not celebrate sometime around this time of the year. -Klei Entertainment-

  1. chesters bone burned

  2. bring back willow's inventory burning so @Mr.Mulk can stop begging for it
  3. Ralsei

    where's the option to take off his cloak i cant seem to find it anywhere hope someone can help[
  4. i idled for skins and got all four drops in one day, this is just your time perception being wrong
  5. just to go into a little more detail (though most have already been said by atkvin above) you need a campfire, not a firepit, because the deerclops can't destroy campfires the winter's feast variant, however, can destroy campfires with its laser attack, which is why i positioned wes in a way such that the laser attack won't his the campfire obviously the video was just an example of a best-case, your deerclops fights won't start out like that the deerclops could arrive at night or your gear may be across the map, like any situation in this game, it's best to get prepared i don't think honey poultice is really great, most players use food to heal it heals a good chunk, stacks up to 40, and never spoils, but i find it to be too expensive for its purpose its healing animation (takes a full second) is also slower compared to the eating animation examples of healing food: meats (longer eating animation, but usually cheaper): pierogi, fishsticks, jerky, bacon and eggs, etc easily available but heals very little, so better for healing outside of fights: honey, butterfly wings, etc quick eating animation and heals a lot: gears (wx only), trail mix, blue cap, dragonpie (requires farms), etc i still think that tanking the deerclops is the best advice for new players, because it's the safest and fastest way of dealing with the deerclops, reasons below: it costs very little, you need only a few early-game items (campfire, log suit, hambat, few healing items) it doesn't take much to prepare, the items needed are easily available and you can get them in a few minutes it takes minimal skill, you just run to the deerclops and hold down F, that's all you need to do killing the deerclops as quickly as you can minimises risks deerclops has no chance of destroying any buildings and you're a lot less likely to freeze this minimises exposure to deerclops's insanity aura (-400/min) staying around the deerclops for a long while will make you insane leading the deerclops away takes a lot more time and risks more temperature and sanity loss leading the deerclops to fight other mobs is ironically more dangerous than just killing him you take even more time, risk insanity and freezing even more, and risk being attacked by even more mobs keep in mind that you're taking all of these risks just because you didn't want to hold down your F key the deerclops eye is a nice drop that you won't get if you abandon the deerclops, blow him up, or feed him to hungry mobs it lets you craft the eyebrella, which is very useful for spring, conveniently the next season after winter if it's still not obvious, the deerclops fight is extremely trivial but rewarding, i don't see the point of making this more complicated than it should be this has been established as the safest way to deal with deerclops for years now: https://forums.kleientertainment.com/forums/topic/63424-stop-kiting-deerclops/ as for other seasonal bosses, the Goose is hilariously easy to kite and players generally keep the bearger alive
  6. no, wilson x wicker has more votes than any of them
  7. wilson x wicker has a great lead right now
  8. @Thalkas if you disagree, then please vote for its opposition otherwise you're not taking full advantage of your democracy
  9. you can already do this local Recipes = GLOBAL.AllRecipes Recipes.mermhouse.sortkey = Recipes.pighouse.sortkey + 0.1 Recipes.perdhouse.sortkey = Recipes.pighouse.sortkey + 0.2 Recipes.lobsterhouse.sortkey = Recipes.rabbithouse.sortkey - 0.1 This would result in this order: pighouse mermhouse perdhouse lobsterhouse rabbithouse
  10. the most common dont starve ships i've seen over the course of several years are wendy x webber and wilson x wickerbottom so i made this poll to see which of those is actually more popular in the community whichever option has the most votes by november 18 wins, so please no vote fraud or cheating and pick only one below discuss which of these ships is your favourite and why you like them Thank you
