Hot take but I hate Wendy with a passion.
She comes off as the annoyingly obnoxious type of depressed character that tries too hard to be edgy for me to take her character seriously. I can understand that Wendy is still mourning over Abigail, but then why make her casually joke about killing Webber, one of her closest friends, in her moon stone quote? I thought the last thing someone in mourning would want is to have another one of their friends killed? And how can I take her implied depression seriously if you have her running around making these very tasteless suicide jokes but then also have her actually say that she's suicidal? And then you have her other quotes that come off as trying waaaay too hard to make Wendy edgy (more than 5+ quotes where she just says "lol this is empty like my soul/heart xd"). I just hate how her implied depression makes her come off as both a try hard emo-wannabe but also flips back to her being genuinely sad about life/Abigail, which just makes me dislike her character for how her "mood" is all over the place.
And then there is her play style which has the same issues as Wicker and Wolf, but a lot worse. Wolf and Wicker might have powerful abilities with an irrelevant downside, but at least they have some drawbacks to make them more hard to manage for a newer player ( new players are usually not good with hunger and sanity management, so image how well they are going to do with characters that constantly need food, or are almost always insane). But Wendy? .75 dmg mod. that's it. Her upside? a ghost that can be summon at any time that can make hound waves, frog rains, and other groups of small mobs easy to take care of with next to no effort. She also has a crap ton of potions to make things easier for said ghost along side a butch of other stuff that makes her a crutch character. I mean, no wonder why she's the most popular character on pubs. You could go a full year without fighting anything because of how powerful Abby is. And b4 someone says "but what about Deerclops and Bearger? Abby can't solo that.", sure she can't, but the treeguards that they can spawn can.
Sorry for a wall of text but I just really hate Wendy and I don't understand why people like her character (outside of her ingame ability) despite her character being really shallow and her personality offering nothing but "grr im edgy and I hate the world grr"
