What is your "win state" for a (base) game of Don't Starve?

Recommended Posts

As the title says, when would you say you've "beaten" a world in don't starve? After a boss? An intensive crafting recipe? Enslavement of all life?

Asking as a new player who's wondering how far this game can be taken before moving on to other games/dlc.

Winning for me means:

  1. At least one main base established in:
    1. At least one island in Shipwrecked (must include fish farms + dock + 5+ ballphin pens)
    2. Main RoG continent
    3. At least one cave
    4. At least one Ruins
  2. Bases must have teeth trap fields or a 24/7 defense like rock lobsters
  3. All four RoG bosses beaten and looted at least once
  4. At least one Ancient Guardian beaten and looted
  5. ~60 coffee plants split between one main base on Shipwrecked and one main base in RoG
  6. Items obtained:
    1. Walking cane
    2. Tam o' Shanter
    3. Several thulecite suits and crowns

I usually stop after that. I don't really feel the need to make continent-wide road systems with flooring and walls like some of the more elaborate players.

Defeating all bosses solo, Fuelweaver, Dragonfly, Bee Queen, Toad, Bearger, Klaus, Nightmare Shadow (from 3 marble sculptures) and Deerclops.   Cleared ruins 3 times in a row, have 200 Thulecite and a few dozen suits, crowns and clubs, about 50 dragon scale chests and 10-12 Houndius Shootius.

Most of the bosses you listed are DST exclusive but op was asking about single player if I’m not mistaken.

Technically the game difficulty scale up to day 100, said day is when hound attacks are maxed out. If your base and yourself can handle this without a sweat then you are pretty much in new game +. Everything else you do is pretty much optional stuff that make you more and more powerful.

True. The game is most difficult at this midgame point. After that, you should have a meat effigy in place at your main base and be well stocked enough that even a mistake doesn't cost you your entire save. It just gets easier and easier, but at least you get to explore and feel powerful.

Whenever I feel like I'm done with a world. I have done so many playthroughs that there really is no win condition any more. Just a "sense" of -It's time to move on.
