TLDR Give him interesting upgrades with a variety of recipes, and real choices between them. Overview So, without further messing about: Innate Stats and Penalties Spare Parts Upgrade Closet Chest Upgrades Leg Upgrades Arm Upgrades Head Upgrades That took a lot longer than I'd expected, but hopefully the spoiler tags help you skim and scroll through it. Thanks for the read!
When Woodie's rework initially came out, i thought, like many others, that Woodie was sort of in the overpowered side. Heck, i even made a thread suggesting different ways his transformations could get forced onto people by different actions to sort of make him have more of a downside. But then it hit me, maybe he DOES have downsides, it's just that they're not obvious downsides or highly noticeable like Warly's pickiness, Wes' existence or Wormwood's lack of food heals. Here's what i mean: Woodie no longer has much of a downside that affects his human form besides from the doubled treeguard spawn (which many experienced players consider an upside rather) and while this technically makes him "better Wilson with an axe" his rough edges start showing when you start transforming: Every transformation (considering you're using totems) costs 20 health and 15 sanity to boot. cursed Woodie drains sanity at an amount almost comparable to the Tam o Shanter (which restores 6.7 p/m according to wiki) draining -6 p/m. When Woodie ceases to be transformed, he's immediately starving, meaning that even the most prepared of players is bound to take AT LEAST 1-4 starving damage (on top of the native idol damage i mentioned above) Though unlikely, he can't binge eat monster foods in a pinch since that would force him into a random transformation (which tends to be undesirable). Random transformations also occur at a full moon no matter what, though one can prepare and eat a desired idol right before night hits. This is without taking into account the quirks of each transformation (moose has great power and defense but is slow and can't heal by himself without jellybeans or a Wortox; Goose can't harvest or do anything but run; werebeaver can't collect his farmed items until he's back to human form; whenever Woodie dies he stays transformed, most likely causing starvation at ressurrection) really hones in the point that Woodie's upsides are not without consequences, but rather that his downsides only come as a direct consequence of using his powers. And even if you were to tell me that you would never transform or chop that much and that it makes him just a better Wilson, then what would be the point of playing as him? What d'yall think Extra notes: I know insanity isn't a problem to most players, but it can be annoying even for the more experienced players during a boss fight or a farming session, not to mention new players lose their monkeys at insanity. I'm sorry i disrespected Wes, o' Wes worshipers.
