summary of rant: other characters( winona , maxwell , willow , walter ) than wicker need more attention due to mundane gameplay of other character can be start of rant. -wicker bottom may not have the power to feed the entire server in one go but still have multiple uses that impact gameplay - example ; grass/twigs farm , lightning book for volt goats and wx-78 , tentacle books for boss cheese , grow decent amount of food , book panflute - characters like willow , maxwell need a rework more badly no? - willow can only hyper farm nightmare creatures (bear) and more resistant to summer - maxwell wood gathering can be outdone by beager or deerclops and frankly he is only use for mining rock fruits and infinite durability shovel, his duelist is only use to be perma insane and nothing else. - wionna legit only use for farms then switch into whatever character they play -so klei pls give more attention to other characters.
Let's play - Opinions on Wickerbottom - Episode 1: This characters perks are good Wickerbottom's perks are really good. Especially starting with Tier 1 science. First of all, being able to craft a backpack at the start of the game is possibly the best possible thing known to man, and it also saves resources by not having to craft a science machine to make an alchemy engine, and anything that saves on chopping trees is a good thing in my eyes. It does get kind of useless later in the game, but her second perk makes up for that. Her second perk, being able to make books, more than makes up for the first perk's uselessness in mid/lategame. She also starts with 2 papyrus, which is exactly enough to make a book if you have the other materials necessary. All of her books consume sanity to use, but we'll get to that later. The End is Nigh! is a book that Which summons lightning and used to be an insane combo with WX78, but that mechanic doesn't exist anymore so there aren't that many uses for the book anymore. Horticulture Abridged will grow all the crops in your farm,but you need a one man band in order to talk to them and keep them happy. Wormwood in bloom might also work, but you're never going to find both a Wicker and a wormwood in the same lobby, especially not a public servers. Pretty sure this also grows berry bushes. Applied Silvaculture (probably butchered the name) grows everything else, from twigs, to grass, to trees. Applied Horticulture was the farming book from before the reap what you sow update, and it grew everything. Trees, farm plot crops, berry bushes, grass and twigs, probably the best book she had at the time. Don't get me wrong, Silvaculture and Abridged Horticulture are still good books, but the original horticulture was the best non combo book at her disposal. Sleepytime Stories sends mobs around you to sleep. It also works on players in PvP, making her S tier there, but no one plays PvP so who cares. It is most commonly used in combination with Birds of the World summons birds near you. That's really it. Crows and either Redbirds or Snowbirds. Maybe even the yellow birds that I forgot the name of and refuse to look up. Probably summons Puffins in the water. The most common use for this book is to summon the birds, send em to sleep, and farm naughtiness points to grind out Krampus sacks. I cannot think of another use for this, it's literally just birds. On Tentacles is another summoning book, and it summons a bunch of tentacles around you, and that's it. You can use this for farming beequeen, or griefing. It's just tentacles. Let's play - Opinions on Wickerbottom - Episode 2: This characters downsides are also good Wickerbottom's downsides are an inability to sleep (unless forced asleep by another player, mandrake, bearger yawn, or a lunar thing) and spoiled food having increased penalties for her, making her combo with WX78 even more powerful back then due to his immunity to spoiled or stale food. These downsides are really good and compliment her upsides well. Sure, you can make a bunch of food, but if it stales, you're in trouble. Sure, you can make more food, or use another of your books, but that requires sanity, which you can't easily regain by sleeping. It's a good balance. Let's play - Opinions on Wickerbottom - This is the part where I rant about her problems The big problem with Wicker isn't that she's not powerful enough or she's too powerful, the problem is that there's just not enough to her books. Yeah, she has 2 good ones in silvaculture and horticulture, and the sleepytime stories one is just a panflute, you can't go wrong with a panflute, but the other three books are just so situational it's ridiculous. First of all, The End is Nigh. Lightning has no use (i think) in this game after the WX78 rework, since you can't overcharge with it anymore, all it can really do is provide a little light with the lightning rod, and that's it. On Tentacles is only good for farming and griefing, one of which should never be done, and the other is worthless because willow is a better griefer in every way possible. (/sarcasm, please don't grief,) Birds of the World is similarly niche because it has to have another book to even be useful, and the uses it does have is feather, meat, and krampus sack farming, and Klaus is better and just more fun for sacks (provided you're in winters feast and don't have to wait for every winter to kill him) And you could make an argument that characters like Wolfgang or Wigfrid or Wendy are niche because all they do is kill things, or all Woodie and Max do is gather resources, but like, first of all, you're going to be killing things the entire game, and you'll always need resources, and second, these things don't take resources after every five enemies killed, or trees chopped, because Wicker's books have 5 uses, and then you're back to the swamp getting reeds (a hellish experience if you don't have a reed trap), or back to the beefalo for poop, or the birdcage for eggs, or whatever. Making wicker better would just be give her more books. Just give her more books. That's it. That's really all you need to do, just give her more books. I really can't think of anything else. Maybe make the books cheaper or give them more uses, I don't know. She just needs more books. Too Ranty;Didn't Read: Wickerbottoms books are too situational, but other than that she's a good character.
