Best Character?

  • I was wondering who you thought was the best Character. My personal favorite is Wickerbottom so far, but i have not unlocked Wes or Maxwell.

    • I like to go with Wilson because hes classic and because of his epic jokes

        Loading editor
    • Wolfgang because he hits harder has more health and doesnt starve easily which is exaclty what you need to survive

    • Willow, simply because i can run from things at night and dont get cought by the black hands.

    • WX-78 is best.

      If you do beekeeping with WX:

      1. You can eat Honey withing 40. Freaky. Days. In case WX eats spoiled food!

      2. You can make Taffies.

      3. You can save Honey for winter.

      4. You can make bee mines against hounds.

      5. Alot of products can be saved for Winter or eaten almost rotten. WX doesn't give a damn what he eats. So food problem is solved.

      Sanity problem can be fixed by Top Hat.

      Health problem by Log Suit + Football Helmet.

      6. And...Well, WX is kinda cute and has nice quotes.

    • Why do you think Wendy is best? Her ghost doesn't appear often..And it's ONLY her perk.

    • Objectively, the best character in my opinion is Maxwell.

      Once you have the combat down, having higher health/damage with Wolfgang is less important. Ice boxes/storing in crockpots/farms make being able to eat spoiled food less neccesary. Wickerbottom has easier starts, but after others get a shadow manipulator, she has no perk. Willow being immune to fire is nice, although her lighting fires at night is not as important once you have a good setup. Wilson has easy access to beard hair and free insulation in the winter, which gives him good long term perks.  Wes is Wes. For Wendy, Abigail becomes problematic, she aggroes monsters and can harm you if you get close.

      On the other hand, Maxwell has a constant sanity regeneration, which means you never have to waste supplies on tents/straw rolls, and you worry less about lengthy fights causing hallucinations to attack. His and Wilson's are the only great perks.

    • In my opinion Wolfgang is the one with the best perk because the "hits harder" perk, alone is best than any other one, because killing spiders with a fewer hit makes your spear last 50% longer and saves you sanity (because makes the battle shorter), also he is an excellent boss slayer, the 50% moar-damage-thing can kill a boss up to 15 hits faster wich also saves sanity, ALSO when you get a dark sword you can 1-hit spiders... wich is awesome... soo yeah , Wilson, ¡he tecnically gets 2 efigies every 16 days! for me thats a bit OP... and insulation.. hes the best long-term character, Maxwell can wear a night armor AND still regenerate sanity, his lower health is not a big problem because you dont take more damage or heal slower its just the max health that just means you have to retreat  sooner, this health deal can be easily avoided later on wearin the night armor, also you can turn on/of a torch to survive the whole night with little to no sanity loss, again, good for long-term gameplay, Willow just sucks..., Wendy is ok, abigail can truly save your bacon if you get a hound attack at night AND during winter (longer dusk/night) shes almost a full day ally, Wes is OP so I dont play much with him, Wickerbottom is good for starting quickly in a world and use the teleportato to move to another and switch characters (so you can "start" with every recipe) ,you just have to build an alchemy engine (you start with the recipe!) and can prototype everything... wich is also pretty cool, but, other chaacters will eventually build a shadow manipulator wich makes his perk useless, WX-78 is also ok, starvation is not a problem.. but when food gets stale it only heals 33% the normal value, THAT IS a problem when a player relies on crock pot food to heal up because reeds are ass-f*ck-hard-to-get (myself included)..., also honey on a fridge can be eaten with no penality for 80 F*UCKYN DAYS GOD DAMM*T!!, cough... and that's about all my thoughs about the characters... let me know if I missed anything.

    • I like Wendy's look and quotes best.  Plus, her ghost is very easy to manage.   You can simply kill her before she does any harm at all (even when she spawns right under you, you will only take very little damage as she does only 15 damage per tick).  

      On the other hand, Abigail also has several use:

      1.Excellent Meat Grinder: You can take on bee hive, spider nest, pigs, and even single beefalo/clockwork knight on day one.

      2. Free aggro dump: good when you're being chased by tree guard, hounds, werepigs, deerclop, killer bee, mosqitos, merns, tall birds, and even beefalo. 

      3. Frees up weapon slot/armor slot: spears? log suit? football helmet?  They are nice to have, but not necessary when you have Abigail to do the fighting for you.


      Of course, Abigail is very squishy; so you need to make use of her AoE fast attacks, make sure you are hitting all monsters at the same time.   She obliterates anything that can be stun-locked, and deals a lot damage to the rest if you can juggle the aggro.

    • Wolfgang. Because he has bigger stomach,higger health. And hits harder. And I like his mustache :3

    • Come on, Willow is the best - you have free ashes, you don't have to stop your early grind at all, you have by far the best (and free) sanity-dropper, you are protected from stupid occasional deaths and hell hounds are less annoying. Also, she is cute.

    • I would say wilson, having a tier 3 winter item, A.K.A his beard, during winter is very nice, allowing him to stay away from fire the longest.

    • Maybe not the best, but i always use Willow. I am absent minded, and always forget the fire or a torch. Most of my deaths are by the grue, so, Willow.

    • Personally, I like Wendy. I know it costs to get Abigail out, and Wendy doesn't have any other perks, but honestly, Abigail is VERY useful when she is following you around (by gods, she fights like a MACHINE!) But that's just me, since I feel like running everytime I see something hostile....lol

    • I choose woodie. I'm good at finding materials on don't starve. So i sleep in full moon day before moon came. So werebeaver doesn't problem on me. Also in emergency. I have lots of woods on my base. Also hats looks good on him :3 Otherwise wilson is good too.

    • WX-78 is EASILY the best character with one important condition - you have to spend the first few days exploring the map until you find the clockwork beasts so that you can get your gears for upgrading.  There are five of them, which will net you 10 gears when you kill them.  Eat 9 (slowly) and save 1 for an Ice Box.  

      With that WX-78 has the best stats in the game of all the characters, and with his ability to eat spoiled food he is also the easiest to keep from starving - which also means you can gather less food and spend more time being productive doing other stuff.  With an icebox and jerky lasts 40 days, honey lasts 80(!) days.  Rain is easy to deal with, and the lightning strike overcharge is great for speed gathering (another productivity bonus) or catching fireflies at night.

      I used to play Wilson or Wendy, but once I switched to WX-78 the difference was very noticable.  Best stats, easiest to feed, most productive (except maybe Woody). 

      I actually think WX-78 is overpowered and am probably going to switch back to a character who is more of a challenge.

    • What good is Willow once you get a Lantern?

      What good is Abigail when you have to kill something that is not a spider?

      What good is Woodie once you get better loot than Log Suit and Tentacle Spike and you're past grinding for basic resources?

        Loading editor
    • For me its the WickerBottom, her books save my ass, the fast-food book (food sources and other things like trees etc grow instantly around you) makes her have decent survivability considering the supplies are easy to gather and the one swamp solves the reed issue.

    • My favorite and, in my opinion, the best character is Wilson, after all, he doesn't need to waste resources at the winter. Here are my comparisons.

      Wolfgang: Now that is a bad character, no offense, but, SERIOUSLY? I mean, In a game that the easiest way to die is to starve,  and the guy gets weaker when starves, holy shit.     also, why we need bigger health and bigger battle ability when we know how to footsie? (Footsie is basically, you rush on the enemy and goes back, the enemy will attack, you rape him)

      Wendy: Not that bad, Abigail its pretty useful but like Wolfgang, footsie is OP

      Wickerbottom: Her books are OP, I admit, but, anyway, in a game when we can easily die starving, she has to eat ALWAYS ​"good" food

      Woodie: Nice actually, he can cut woods pretty quick, and has a DAMN advantage versus Treeguards, when you find Treeguards, youre cutting trees, and almost 75% trees are found in forests, so, you can turn into Werebeaver and rape him, anyway, Wilson will be OP with resources, more than Woodie, because Woodie has hes OP Beaver form, and, I guess at least, that Wilson with Knight Sword and Knight Armor defeats his Beaver form, and good players can easily acumulate Nightmare Fuel. So Wilson if the player is at least experienced will be able to be better, but close battle...

      Willow: Shes nice too. Being immune to fire will surely help against some enemies, and her ability to be protected from Grue its actually pretty decent aswell, but Wilson is OP, and everybody knows that fire and ice arent so good togheter, winter (at least with me) raped Willow, I had resources but nothing worked, my suit ended and I didnt had any Grass and Woods soon I had made a Fire Pit, so I ended dying, and my Amulet and Touch Stone couldnt do anything.

      WX-78:Hes ability is pretty cool and useful, but I soon found many food, and I guess if I am able to do it, everyone can...

      Wes:No comparison, Wes is just the best character in the game (joke)

      Maxwell:Now he is great! Along with Wilson, I guess they're the best characters, even being frail, footsie and damn OP sword at the beggining and OP mind fragmentation, he is just unbeatable, but remember. Wilson has more health, can make the sword and grows a magnificient beard he is OP.

      No, OP stands for Opulent Pickaxe.

    • Depends on your playstyle. I'll list my preferences. Top = best Bottem = worst

      Maxwell: Maxwells ability basicly take out 1/3 of the main things you need to watch (sanity health hunger), and while yes he has 75 base HP you start with one of the best if not the best armour, and with his sanity boost if you  want to go insane take out the sword and chest and if you want sane take it off, it is very easy to get more armour.

      Wilson: Has no drawback to his perk, his beard is a winter hat at full growth, can make respawn points easily and his only drawback is not having the abilitys of the others (which all have drawbacks!)

      Wolfgang: Many people consider him underpowered but his ability (for experienced players) is very good. He wont starve for a long time and when he is mighty he can reck just about anything. His weak mode will offset most people but it isn't that hard to avoid just play as him and you will see what I mean.

      Woodie: No phisical drawbacks (same base stats as wilson) chops trees down fast and has an overpowered beaver mode which when above ground is 1 under invincible. He is this far down? Chopping too many trees will transform you into beaver, usefull in combat, however; EVERY TIME YOU GO BEAVER MODE YOU WILL WAKE UP ALMOST DEAD, ALMOST INSANE, ALMOST STARVING! This means if you die away from your base, underground away from light etc, you can easily die from halusinations starving etc, this is managable by tracking your times (travel after the full moon just happened so you wont transform) but if you forget you can get in very bad situations.

      WX78: He is OP, Broken in need of a nerf ETC. His only drawback is that he starts out with low stats (or when you revive) and if you get gears he can have the highest stats in the game and doesn't care about food spoiling. For experienced players you can easily survive until max stats and then it doesn't matter really. You are practicly invincible. Why is he so far down on the list? He is broken in need of a nerf OP. At least to me, not fun to play as, as he makes the game not challanging at all. It's a good thing he is unlocked later than most.

      Wendy: Many consider her the best character which I can understand, the less sanity drain and abigail both are great but the low melee damage / overall damage means you can't kill things like rabits or birds with one hit from boomerang and it takes longer to kill things, slugs the game down a bit. And not always having abigail available can make you unprepared from attacks (mostly underground, you feal safe with your sanity nnot drainign fast but those depths worms.)

      Wickerbottom: Doesn't need an alchemy engine ever, and only needs shadow manipulator for one thing which isn't nessasary which means it can be overlooked and has higher sanity with the ability to make books. Seems solid, however alchemy engines and shadow manipulators are cheap. (Nightmare fuel is easy to get just go insane and purple gems are quite easy to find at least I think.) The books although good alternatives for things ( get more bang for your buck with fertalizer, easy way to make things sleep) can also be unneeded / gimicy (birds fly down for a bit lightning randomly strikes and tentacles spawn) and stale and spoiled foods are very bad for her. This I can get behind however, She can not sleep. This may seem fine but it really limits how you get your sanity back. It creates alot of spots where it might be hard to go back to sanity, and books drain sanity alot making them a bad combo.

      Willow: Has a lighter letting her avoid the night monster and is amune to fire damage. Well great now she can farm charcoal at night. Sadly Willows abilitys are very gimicy, and don't get used that often, the lighter is good for new players or for the first few days but really it only saves on grass and twigs, and I have never died from fire damage before as it can only come from either lightning or yourself.

      Wes: HE IS MADE TO BE BAD! HE IS THE HARD MODE OF THE GAME! Not bad for things like willow is he is just made for players wo claim don't starve is too easy, he only has drawbacks no perks, unless you consider no voice a perk. It isn't his fault he sucks, he just does.

    • Wilson- has an epic beard with insulation 135, used to make respawn Meat Effigy (saved me about 5 times) and has awesome jokes. No downgrades either, and only character with real backstory.

      Willow- seemed to have a good perk to me in the beginning but as time went on the random fires started to get annoying.

      Wolfgang- in a game about not starving, the fact that he starves slowly is quite a perk, but the fact that he gets very wimpy when almost starving made me die by spiders alot. I mean, you can just run away when a mob attacks and run back in while its attacks are cooling down.

      Wendy-  I like her alot, actually, spawning Abigale and her perk on less saniy drain. But her attack streangth is questionable.

      Woodie- great perks and all but every time after beaver mode you make up almost dead, able to be finished off by hallucinaions.

      Wickerbottom- no need for science machine + alchemy engine, but they are both very cheap. Also you only need the shadow manipulator for one unneeded thing so ya. The books are good too, but she can't sleep and books drain her sanity, which makes me very annoyed.

      WX78- HE IS AMAZING not so at first but gears are easy to get. He's completly OP once you max out on gears and the rain draining his sanity can be negated with an umbrella.

    • i really like Willow she starts with a lighter that helps starting out the game.  The main thing that i like is that she gains sanity when she is near a fire.  So at night if your by a campfire you can gain sanity instead of losing it.

    • I still really like Wendy. Abigail can save you from a lot of tight situations and helps you deal with some mild hassles. The reason why she works so well is that all of her perks synergize with her drawbacks, making them less troublesome. Less damage isn't that bad when you have a goddamn self-healing super-ghost on your side, and I personally feel like Abigail's contribution most certainly makes up for the extra durability lost and time wasted from the damage debuff.

      Also, the buff in sanity is really underrated. Wendy has pretty great control over her sanity, she's able to lower it quickly if need be by spawning Abigail multiple times, and her sanity boost allows her to keep herself from going too insane, and makes it so you never have to waste silk on more top hats.

      Wilson's also good, with a very applicable, simple perks and no real drawback, but he's just kinda boring. He's a good introductive character and has enjoyable one-liners, but I can't think of that many ways to experiment with him, he's not dynamic enough. Although a free source of beard hairs and a free beard-hat is very nice.

      I do like Woodie as well, but he can be difficult. I do really like having two talking characters interacting with each other, and Lucy makes it so he doesn't have to waste as much resources on getting wood (harhar). Unfortunately, Woodie's not as lucky as Wendy, his downside has no mercy. Although being a Werebeaver can be helpful at times (especially with ill-prepared Treeguards), waking up in such a dire state rarely makes it worth it.

      WX78 is kinda boring in my opinion. Eating spoiled food is very nice, and the upgrading is amazing, but it's hard to appreciate his perks. His downside is super annoying until you amass enough silk for an umbrella, but after that it's basically a non-issue.

      Wickerbottom is pretty neat as well. Her perk allows for a lot of help early on in the game, making the starting grind less painful, and it allows Wickerbottom to do more on the go, since she more or less has a portable science machine. Her books are all useful in one way or another as well, although they cause the sanity to take a hit. Being an isnomiac means nothing for me, I rarely ever sleep with her (harhar), but her pickiness with food is quite tiresome and is almost constantly present.

      Wes is boring. Willow is boring as well. I've never died to the Grue/Charlie, I don't need her lighter to stay alive. Being immune to fire damage is okay, but too situational for my tastes. Wolfgang is especially boring in my opinion, the x2 damage is rarely in effect, and the increased hunger is very, very annoying. I haven't tried Maxwell yet.

    • I can not understand why only one person mentioned woody. Playing with him is almost boring because you can stay as the beaver for the eternity and you can kill all the monsters around (i killed 4 treebeards and a dearclops in a single winter) and also when you came back to normal you have already unlocked the whole fucking map. Except of these he chops really fast and never ever need a fucking axe to craft. He is undestructable in beaver form because you just need to have some trees to heal and he has no sanity, darkness or cold problems. The only thing may be count as bad about him is when he awakes he has low sanity, health and hunger levels but it is perfectly manegable when you are prepared. Really playing as woody made me bored from the game.

      Wes, as is described, is more of a hardmode character for more experienced players (while Maxwell is somewhat easy mode).

      As for the OP, I think Wilson is the best character, not just because you start off with him, but he is the only character with perks that have no tradeoffs. And plus, that beard is magnificent.

    • I have the most fun playing as Wes, as he makes the game a bit harder. He isn't too difficult to play as, though, as I have a world with all settings on default in which I have lasted 331 days (and counting). Don't Starve certainly isn't "Too easy", but it's not difficult once you've gotten everything down.

      Because he doesn't have a character specific debuff, Wes is only worse in every regard (excluding his Pile o' balloons) in comparison to Wilson and Wendy. Willow has a lower max sanity than Wes, and lights fires when low on sanity. Wolfgang has wimpy form (which can make him weaker than Wes), and loses hunger faster than Wes (150% hunger drain speed when in normal form and 300% in mighty form compared to 125% for Wes). WX-78, while easily the best character in the game, loses health in the rain, can activate system-overload (while not necessarily a bad thing, it drains 33 sanity which can happen multiple times in the same rainstorm), and starts with lower max stats. Wickerbottom has increased penalties for eating stale and spoiled foods, and can't sleep. Woodie has Werebeaver which leaves him almost dead, and can only chop four large trees at a time (with Lucy) without turning into Werebeaver. Finally, Maxwell has a lower max health than Wes.

      Wilson has a multipurpose beard with no drawbacks, and Wendy only has decreased damage (which Wes also shares, at 0.75). They both have superior stats in every category, making them better than Wes.

      He's still the worst character in the game, though, and my favourite for that very reason.

    • I'm partial to Willow. Being a mini-pyro myself, it's fun to play as such a cute character, and she also has more buffs than debuffs. Of course, she has low health, hunger, and sanity (compared to Wilson). I like Wilson too, but he's not as interesting as the rest of the characters. I've probably played the most as Willow, though one time she corrupted my save file by lighting so massive a fire it froze my game (56 days of progress lost... not a good day). I had to take a break from her after that...

      OPINIONS:

      Wilson isn't fun, but he's an easy character and one of my faves.

      Willow is my favorite. She's cute.

      Wendy is ok, but the sanity drop from spawning Abigail really kills.

      Wolfgang is a lot of fun, even though the hunger thing gets annoying... but he's got a killer moustache.

      WX-78 is probably the best character to last a long time with. i have 145 days with him.

      Wickerbottom says the best things, but i'm not too fond... she reminds me of my grandmother which is kind of weird...

      I have nothing to say about Wes, i don't think he has much to say either.

      I haven't unlocked Maxwell or Woodie yet.

      This has made my day.

      WX-78 is often considered a great character, but not on some occasions. Here is a few reasons why:

      If your first chapter in adventure mode is A Cold Reception, you might as well light a tree on fire and burn.

      With the new DLC, he will need an umbrela in the Caves. WHO DOES THAT?

      His gear advantage, although great, is only utilized if you have the ability to find the Wooden thing and kill the guardians there, or if you dig up graves and the ghosts are kindly that day. This means you will often spend early game running around, looking for gears.


      Wheras Wilson, he gets meat effigies galore, has some of the best average base stats (200 sanity is nothing to laugh at), has no trouble with his first winter for competent players and still to this day has no debuffs. I agree, he is still a base character and can be easily outsurvived by a fully geared WX-78, but he is less about maximising and adventure and is more focused on fun-

      What's that? WX-78 can eat spoiled food with no penalties?

      BEST CHARACTER

      Well ya it does make you lose sanity but you can get it back easily, along with that his damage and defence can make short work of many enemys and for bosses, they drain your sanity fast anyways and maxwell's too dapper to care bout dat.

    • I haven't played all the characters, despite my immense time in the game. Though I intend to try playing as Wolfgang next. I tried Wendy, then immediatly got a headache from her voice and deleted the world. Wilson is a great character, with Tier 3 insulation levels from his beard, practically free meat effigies, and no downsides. I really have been enjoying the new character, Webber. His low sanity levels is a double edged sword. On one hand, it's easier to farm Nightmare Fuel and Beard Hair, and easier to get back to max sanity. On the other hand, darkness and insanity aura's HURT! Deerclop's insanity aura can take him from full sanity to none in 15 seconds....christ. He also has a slightly increased max health and hunger. He's not attacked by, and can even recruit spiders, cave spiders, spider spitters, dangling depth spiders, and spider warriors (I have yet to test spider queens) and can recruit several with a single piece of meat. He can still trade with the Pig King, though you may want to wait until dusk. It's pretty bad having automatic hostility with Pigs and Bunnymen, but your army of spiders works pretty well against them. And he grows a white silk beard. I've enjoyed playing as him the most. Willow is great for Adventure mode, where that fire immunity helps you, as you're in combat much more often to pass obsticles, and thus can simply trap your enemies in a burning forest, and you can get sanity back that you need to drain to get past obelisks. Otherwise, don't play as her. Same can be said for Wickerbottom, you want that headstart in research in adventure mode, but otherwise her downsides are too bad, and the science boost is completely pointless outside of the first week of the game. Wes was made to be a horrible character. What do you expect? Maxwell's starting gear and dapperness is great, and his fraility can be negated by not trying to tank a boss, and actually using your brain in combat. Also, the codex umbra is pretty amazing. Woodie was my favorite before RoG, as he can topple an entire forest in werebeaver mode, and I generally have a few drying racks preparing Jerky before the first full moon. Wigfrid is a little overpowered, and that's a word I use very sparingly. WX-78 is best late game, though getting there might sometimes prove a challange.

He is the only character that doesn't have a disadvantage in traits, he can produce beard hair which can be used for making some useful resurrection tools, fuel, heat in the winter and can tell how near a season starts or ends if you shave it at the right time. He also looks really cool and is the only character with an origin story.

    • I really like Webber and Wilson.


      Wilson gives the "Classic Don't Starve Experience" vibe.  Where other characters are super-human/monster/automaton, Wilson is the human, the only one who I can TRUELY relate to.  


      I like Webber because of the evil deeds I commit towards the Pigs.  For example, right now I'm working for an Alchemy Engine.  I have the Electrical Doodads...now all I need is to raise my spider army up to destroy the Pigs and their homes for the resources (why make it myself when I can steal it?).

No problem if you go exploring without resources to make a fire since she has her lighter, even if the light is small. In winter, if you start to freeze, just burn something (sapling, grass, tree, bush) and stay close to the fire 2-3 seconds, then you have a little more time to walk. This helped me a lot in Adventure mode. Fire immunity is also really nice and useful. I don't really care if I burn a forest down when I have low sanity, because it gives a lot of charcoal.

    • I honestly believe that wickerbottum is the up-most best, and personally, my favorite character of the entire game. Her style is most complex, as she can easyly explain things with a un-remarkable vocabulary, as well as being able to craft so many things in the very beggining game, as well as being completely useful, and perhaps, the most useful in adventure mode, due to the fact that in adventure mode, you don't have time to get all the supplies and unlock all the items you need, she simply has every single blueprint useful for your needs.


      Wickerbottum also haves another great ability. She doesn't need to use an alchemy engine to unlock tier 2 items, all she needs to do is to build the basic science machine. This can be very useful if you don't have the time to get all the parts for the alchemy engine, and just use the basic gold&stone. Saving up useful resources is very important indeed because there are items in tier 2 that cost strange, and rare items that are hard to aqquire.


      Wickerbottums ability to "self-publish books" is extremely useful, how ever, she only has 2 books that she can make at the very beggining of the game, but, there are more books that are capable of combat usefulness , and creating defenses, such as "The end is nigh" book, and the "On Tentacles" book, which both of these can be aqquired by building alchemy engines , or building a shadow manipulator.


      Wickerbottum is chockfull of surprises and great buffs, how ever, there is one thing that is cruel, and more elderly people are common with. Wickerbottum is an insomniac. Her insomnia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insomnia ). This is a very troublesome effect, due to the longer nights of winters and other seasons. Due to her insomnia, I usually gather up flowers for a Garland, and chop down trees at night. Even though Wickerbottum doesn't sleep, and can loose sanity faster that way, she is also a very sane person, being at 250 sanity.


      Wickerbottum has another negative effect which makes spoiled food have increasing negative effects, which is bad if you have too much food on your hands , and you don't want to eat it all, or, if you have some food thats getting old, and you dont need to eat anything.


      Wickerbottum is a smart overall character, and is pretty fun to play, even if she does have some disadvantages, I'm positive her advantages are much more powerful, making her pretty OP. In my opinion, her style , her knowledge, and her swagger makes her probably the best character in the game.

    • Also, I myself am partial to both Woodie and Wendy. (So far, I've played as Wilson, Wolfgang, Woodie, and Wendy.)

      I am absolutly in love with running around demolishing EVERYTHING as the Werebeaver. Plus, it's very easy to heal, as wood is plentiful as long as you avoid eating pinecones + replant them between transformations, and I never have problems with controling when I change back, or with the low stats upon returning to human form. Never being able to go in caves because of the moon-clocks not being synced up (I have gone into the caves, immediatly changed to the Werebeaver, and immediatly changed back. True story) does suck, though.

      Wendy, however, is just the opposite. Abigail is a GODSEND in the caves, especially the ruins. I have no idea what I would do without her. She BLASTS through Splumonkeys, flodding me with morsels and bananas, so food + sanity solved right there, as I have 2 Koalefants of drying racks set up (1 Koalefant = 8 racks, for the 8 meat you get from one). She is a great help at taking down Depths Worms, although she usually dies if there's more than 2. I have pretty much abandoned the surface world altogether as Wendy.

    • I would say, that this topic is completly pointles. Everybody likes different characters, they all have their good sides and bad sides. Depending how you play the game, youre going to use a character that fits your playstyle. That preetty much means that were talking more about how we like to play the game, not about who is the best character.

      My faworite is Wes, because i think he has a lot of character. Cmon maybe he doesent make funny jokes, maybe he has the worst stats EVER, maybe his Pile O'ballons is not that good, but thats what makes this character unique. I dont get all the hate that he gets for being a bad character, if you dont like him, dont play him. Also, if you are good at survival with Wes, you pretty much are good at surviving with any character.

      Sorry for typos, dont kill me, Grammar Nazi.

I have more food than I ever need, and I've only really been eating Honey Hams and Meaty Stews. Most of the time I can't get out of Mighty Form because all my food is spoiling too fast, even in an ice box (about time to make tons of Drying Racks).

    • It WX-78, plain and simple.

      Wilson and Webber have their beards, sure, but Winter isn't THAT difficult.

      Willow has, until they make her immune to overheating, has sanity management beaten over by Wendy.

      Wolfgang is great in combat, but after the first hit, all he does is make it go faster, rather than better (and the additional hunger loss is a significant detriment).

      Wendy non-sanity advantage is Abigail, who, while very helpful, is much more circumstantial than others (although I do believe that Wendy is one of the better characters).

      Wickerbottoms only long term advantage is books, of which only "sleepy time stories" and "of tentacles" is any good (although they are quite good). Her sanity ma, nagement, though, is pretty drastic.

      Woodie, Woodie, oh, Woodie... Basically, his wearbeaver form only has him with somed decent armour and attack, though he doesn't overheat or freeze, which is helpful. That's two advantages (the first being almost redundent latter game), with the two disadvantages being dropping all his items/ no equipment, and having 50 in his stats when he reverts again. With Reign of Giants, it's very difficult for him to get the Glommer as a pet (needing to first clear adventur mode, and then have another character succeed in adventure mode with the Glommer pet). His transformation, circumstantially, can be very useful, but it's non-necessitity is even more apparent than Willow, and his Axe just isn't that good.

      Maxwell is what he is. Good sanity management, and has a good early game start. Later game, all he has are the shadow clones and terrible fucking health. He's okay.

      Wes is fun.

      Wigfrid's battle bonus is similar to Wolfgangs, though she also gets good equipment crafting options. Her victory buff is very helpful, and her necessity to eat meat really isn't that bad. It helps that she starts with 4 meat right off the bat. Pretty good, even with the low stats.

      Webber is Webber; an interesting twist on the standard dynamics that pans out pretty well, and very well in the caves. Sanity will be difficult to manage, though, but he's quite bulky. I like him. His beard is an interesting buff as well.

      WX-78 CAN TANK BITCHES LIKE IT AIN'T NO THING. With Reign of Giants, gears have become so much easier to gain (and are renewable, though it isn't that reliable). His food management must be easiest in the game, his sanity exceedes Wickerbottom without the detriment, and his health is so high, he can have SIXTEEN MEAT EFFIGIES AT ONCE! When have you ever needed that many/ how are you even going to die? His slight damage from rain is completely mitigated from his Overcharge ability; not only does it heal him instead, but he requires no fire that day, and if the sanity hit is that troublesome, it's easy to outrun all the nightmare creatures. 

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, I like WX-78 as well, but he's still not the most incredible fighter, not to mention if you don't find at least one pigskin before Spring, you're gonna be in for a hell of a time. I've actually taken a huge liking to Wolfgang as of late, the hunger management is simple if you cook the higher hunger (and health) foods such as Meaty Stew, Bacon and Eggs, and Honey Ham. Heck, even tanking Deerclops is a cinch, even with only a spear, log suit and football helmet. I mean come on, x2 damage seems even way too much. Dealing with sanity is easy as well - tents. Store up a ton of silk from fighting spiders and you're good to go. And trust me, once you find a pig village and a savannah, food is going to be the least of your problems. Heck, I've stuffed one icebox full of Jerkies and raw meat and haven't once hit 0 hunger. And I've survived through Winter.

      I was wondering who you thought was the best Character. My personal favorite is Wickerbottom so far, but i have not unlocked Wes or Maxwell.

      I honesty like wilson best. Sure the other characters have special abilities but they have major drawbacks willson doesnt, plus his with his beard and some clothing his can stay away from the fire longest. When I unlocken woodie I loved him bht when I found out about his curse, I never used him agian. I only play as willson

    • Woodie and WX-78 are my favourite. Sure, the end of Werebeaver is a pain, but you can just make sure you're prepared with Healing Salves, Fishsticks, clothing, sleep, etc. and you can get a lot done in Werebeaver. I also found him to be the most productive character (though Wendy may also come close). I like WX-78 just because his rain weakness is EXTREMELY negligible even without an umbrella. Anti-Spoilage is amazingly helpful, and since you don't need ice boxes (maybe one so they don't become rots), more gears for you. And SYSTEM OVERLOAD's speed boost and health recovery can be very handy at times

    • Abigail is strong but Maxwell can use the dark sword and the dark armour as he wishes...

      True, but he still takes damage from Splumonkeys, requiring a lot of healing if you go hunting large-scale (Yes, even with night armor; I hit every Pod when I hunt). Since this is the only SUPER reliable existing food source in the ruins, Abigail also being eternally set to max damage with an AoE attack, I just think Wendy's a bit more suited. But I will try out Maxwell once I get him.

      Although, I can imagine this happening to me...

      This is what I used for my set-up, and I was doing fabulous. After a while, consider making walls around your base (stone- it's far to plentiful due to earthquakes). Don't set up anywhere near nightmare fissures, and stay at lest three screens a way from every Splumonkey Pod.

    • Personally, i'm kind of stuck between Wilson and Wickerbottom for different reasons.

      Reasons for Wilson:1. He can grow a fucking beard that yields a (otherwise) hard to get material for something that keeps your skin on. Besides, it insulates you and it looks hilarious when fully grown.

      2. He's an all-rounder. He's like the AK in Far Cry 3's singleplay, he may not exceed anywhere, but he sure as hell doesn't have drawbacks. (The beard may be a problem in the summer, but you don't need the beard in summer).

      Reasons for Wickerbottom: 1. Her above-average sanity gives the player more time to round up equipment that can keep her sane (Though this is a double-edged sword since this also means she takes longer to go crazy to gather nightmare fuel and beard hair).

      2. She has all of the Science Machine recipes ready at the start, so you only need a science machine for the Alchemy Engine recipes, making the grind easier.

But I don't know why playing as Maxwell just doesn't feels right to me. Anyone having this issue? lol I am so torn right now between choosing characters.

    • I think Maxwell's okay, but I like Woodie and WX-78 more. I beat Adventure Mode with WX-78 but I want him back. I would spawn in the Wooden Thing and the things but I can't spawn in the Diving Rod Holder/Lock. Y U NO LET ME CHEAT?

    • I just want to mention though, I didn't quite beat Adventure Mode legit either.

      In the final level I had searched (what I had thought) the entire world and I couldn't find the exit, so I revealed the map. Lo and behold, I was looking in the entirely wrong place. Don't get me wrong though, I had plenty of food and sanity left from the few days I'd been wandering about in the night with the Miners Hat, I just wanted to ensure a win since going back through all the levels again would've been a pain.

    • For all those people who's saying that it's pointless to talk about this and discuss about it, I disagree, as a semi-new player, (I've only played like around 7 or less games, and my max record barely beat 50 days) I can learn a lot by reading these discussions and opinions, sure everyone agrees that Wes is a "bad character", but you also learn why, and his uniqueness, and how to play him! I am still trying as hard as I can to get to adventure mode, (Even though I suck, as I see all you people getting to 300+ days T_T) and unlock maxwell and wes. I don't have RoG so that's a bummer but I learnt so much from this discussion, keep it going!

    • And if I had a favourite colour, it's a hard choice, as I've been staying away from wendy and wolfgang a lot (Don't know why, and you guys have inspired me to try em out soon :P) It would probably be woodie, as a begginer player, I don't think woodie is the "Best" as i find it hard to come back in the game after werebeaver form ends, but I like him the most (Only played him once) because he's unique, and the unique = fun, and the point of don't starve as a game is to have fun. 

      If I unlocked all characters I would love to play maxwell, and if i had RoG, Wigfrid and Webber seem like one of the most unique characters. I think from what I've read (Not much, as I like to explore and find things out myself and I don't read much of this wiki until i have the actual item/find the actual set piece/ monument.

    • There is no better character, matter of fact they all have advantages and disadvantages. Wilson is the most equilibrated character due to his stats. He also has his beard that gives you beard hair to do the Meat Effigy, that's why Wilson is the most used character of the game. WX-78 can be upgraded to have the biggest stats of all characters. Maxwell can use the Dark Sword and the Night Armor and still having his sanity. Wes is obviously the worst character, but that's purposely, he is kind of the hard mode of the game. Webber and Wigfrid are my favorite, they have great advantages and the disadvantages are not a big deal.

    • Besides that, Wilson has the best quotes

    • But seriously Webber is not as op as Maxwell. Wilson probably is the one who is the most related to my personality. BTW Maxwell has a very kinda sad story. I saw this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BY9h0F0BtwI and well it was sad ok.

    • I think the best is Wolfang.

      Why?

      1-He has 200 health, 300 hunger and 250 sanity.

      2-Him "Hunger problem" can be fixed by a Hunger Belt.

      3-He has more damage than other characters if he isn't hungry(And this is easy to do with the point 2)

      4-Isn't very hard to pass the frozen with the point 2.

      5-Wilson can do a Meat Effigy, it's ok, but it takes a little bit of health, instead you can find with any character an realiving stone(Of course any character includes Wilson).

      6-Isn't very difficult to use due to his only devantage is the hunger(that can be fixed with point 2).

      7-Isn't very difficult to obtain.

      8-Easy kills anything with the hunger at top.

      9-He has the hunger devantage but isn't represent a great trouble just because Don't Starve has a LOT of food(if there isn't frozen) on any site, including the desert.

      10(For the future DS:Together)-Better in PvP because he has more damage than other characters.

      11-4 Advantages and only 1 Devantage(+Helath,+Hunger,+Sanity,+Power,+Hungry).

      12-Due to his great hunger bar, him save more food for the winter(Only with point 2)

      So... This is the practice points but i can continue:

      13-Great design.

      14-More beast-man voice than other ocarinas voice.

      15-An old character.

      16-Very funny.

      Ok... Wolfgang is a great character and this is your opinion. But there are some points that I disagree.

      1-WX-78 fully upgraded has 300 sanity 400 Health and 200 Hunger. So yeah, he has better stats.

      5-Well, of course any character can find the Touch Stone, but they are limited. The great point about the Meat Effigy is that you can do as many as you watch, and when you die you can do another one.

      6-Every character is easy to use if you know how to use, even Wes.

      7-Does it count at being "the best" ? I don't think so.

      13-  To me, Wolfgang and Wickerbottom have to worst design. But that's your opinion.

      14-Again, that's your opinion. I think Wilson has the best voice

      15- Again, does it count?

      16- All of them are very funny

    • Can I just point out that the characters are designed to fix basic problems some players can find (i.e. Maxwell is better for keeping sanity up, Wolfgang is better for fighting, Wickerbottom is better for early high-tier crafting) while ruining other areas of the game. There is no true best character, just a preferred character. It all depends on your playstyle; for example, I don't play as Wickerbottom that much because I use Tents a lot and don't really need early crafting.

    • Maxwell have codex umbra which gives you 3 shadow puppets which in pvp with wolfgang the damage of maxwell's pre-given dark sword times 4 (his 3 puppets and maxwell himself) and about the health his wearing shadow armor ok, 95% damage reduction.

      Why on Earth is everything in bold? Also, fallecies in your argument, as follows:

      1- He has between 150-300 health, and 200 sanity, not 200 and 250 (respectivly)

      2- This is a late-game item, and something that you won't have for a while unless you brought it from a previous world.

      4- That makes no sense. 'Pass the frozen'? What?

      5a- All charcaters can make Meat Effegies, and touch stones are limited.

      5b- Why only pick on Wilson? Why not any other characters?

      6a- Aside from, you know, increased sanity drain.

      6b- Again, late game item.

      7- Aaaaaaand?

      9- Food's gonna seem like a lot less sinse his belly drains faster.

      10- Unless you're hungry. Then it'll be a little (By this I mean a lot) harder.

      11- More like the other way around. (Constantly weakening unless you pump food into him every three seconds, higher sanity + hunger drain)

      13- That is purely opinion, good sir/madame.

      "Casual" players are players that play for fun, or don't neccesarily try so hard to complete the objective of the game (or at least explore aspects of the game). In this case, casual players would be players who wouldn't play often and wouldn't play long.

      Hey! Watch your language!

      While you're at it, why not learn to play nice, too? Just because you're an anon that can't be recognized with a two second glance doesn't give you an excuse to be rude!

      Objectively, the best character in my opinion is Maxwell.

      Once you have the combat down, having higher health/damage with Wolfgang is less important. Ice boxes/storing in crockpots/farms make being able to eat spoiled food less neccesary. Wickerbottom has easier starts, but after others get a shadow manipulator, she has no perk. Willow being immune to fire is nice, although her lighting fires at night is not as important once you have a good setup. Wilson has easy access to beard hair and free insulation in the winter, which gives him good long term perks.  Wes is Wes. For Wendy, Abigail becomes problematic, she aggroes monsters and can harm you if you get close.

      On the other hand, Maxwell has a constant sanity regeneration, which means you never have to waste supplies on tents/straw rolls, and you worry less about lengthy fights causing hallucinations to attack. His and Wilson's are the only great perks.

      MAXWELL IS SOOOO WEAK!!!! 

      75 HEALTH IS SOOOO LOW!!!!

      but he makes up for it with his high sanity regen and his Codex Umbra.

      ALLOLOLOLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    • Yeah, Wes is Wes, but man, he's got a will to live like nobody's business. I'm gonna tell a story now. 100% awesome:

      So it's night... 63, I think? Sixty somethin'. Anyway, middle a' winter, choppin' charcoal for the fire, close to night. Heat stone's grey, but I keep going 'cuz I wanna finish. Hounds start barkin', an' I think, "Aw, crud." 'cuz it's almost night an' my heat stone's got no juice. So I sprint to the fire, lickety-split, tryin' to warm the stone to get gone so they won't kill Chester. Night drops, an' the hounds start commin'. I throw on my log suit, yank out my spear, and six-or-seven hounds pour in. I'm tryin' to kite, but I don't have much room to work with 'cuz a' the fire bein' low, so every one hit on them is one er' two on me. So finally I say, "Forget the kiting." an' go to town on the five left. Bad idea short, I got 30 hp an' a 1% log suit. Back to kiting, then, and I get stuck in a corner. One hits me, knocking out the log suit and taking a chunk out of me with the overflow damage. The other two jump in, an' kill me.

      Next day at the touch stone, an' I just jump into a dead sprint, trying to get my hands on enough grass an' sticks for a torch, to light trees on fire so I won't freeze.1 grass and I'm freezing. 2 and I'm takin' damage. First stick and I'm three-layers of ice. Still looking for the 2nd stick and I'm four-layers deep in ice. I finally grab it and go to make the torch, when... Pre-made campfire! I stick it down, toss the grass an' stick on an' I'm standin', screamin' "Live! Live, da** you!" at Wes, 10 hp and he's not freezin' anymore, 45 seconds 'till dusk an' I'm off again, going in the back entrance to avoid the hounds. I'm going through my stuff that'd dropped, tryin' to find the logs, or grass, or anything to throw on the fire, I start freezin' again, when, bam, logs! So I stuff 'im fulla' jerky, kill all the hounds an' think... Man... 5 hp when I threw those logs on.

      So yeah, Wes' got my respect. Also, don't ask me why I was talking like that.

    • But you misspelled "seriously" up there....

      Also, Wendy is the best character. Abigail is just a huge asset no matter what, given that you can just desummon her at will. That combined with never worrying about sanity drain give her sooooooooooo much free reign on her map.

      You can literally fight a Tier 3 Spider Den+a wave of Hounds the very first time you summon Abigail (As long as you don't do it during the day). The boost that Abigail gives you in Spider/Bee/Hound/Frog killing speed just gives you such a huge boost in resources whenever she's around.

      Sure, her AI can freak out on you and do some dumb things, and you basically can't pass through a Swamp with her unless you know an exact path to avoid Tentacles, but those drawbacks are just the price you have to pay for the coolest perk of the game.

      (Though the .75x damage on Wendy can be a real drag sometimes -_-)

    • I think Woodie's the best because Lucy the Axe can help you get a lot of wood, also she has infinite duribility.  Plus when fighting a boss you can turn into a werebeaver to fight.  I also like Webber! :O

      Fun fact: My sister refuses to play as Woody. She did once and when sie died and dropped Lucy, she said "You'll come back, right?" My sis found it so sad, she did not played with him again since then.

    • This thread is so long... we should probably get back on topic before someone closes down this thread. What was it about again? Characters?

      Uhhhh... Yeah, I like Woodie; Werebeaver form is really OP, and you tend to always have a surplus of things like silk, glands, and living logs. Maxwells' starting items and passive sanity boost is nice. Wes is fun because of the challenge he gives. Wilson's very basic, and has no downsides, which is cool. Willow is very good for traveling at night, and for heating up a heat stone. Wendy's good at long-term ruins survival.

      ...That's pretty much my opinions on everyone I've played as.
