Hmmm. I wonder if these will burn.

Willow

Willow is the first playable Character that can be unlocked via Experience, with 160 XP. She is a young woman suffering from the mental disease Pyromania, and as such her character revolves around fire, for better or worse.

Innately, she is immune to Fire damage, and regenerates Sanity when near Fires. She also comes equipped with Willow's Lighter, which is an infinite source of Light and can be used to light things on Fire. This gives her an easier time when dealing with the dark and low Sanity. Willow also has only 120 maximum Sanity and when she is at low Sanity, she may randomly start a Fire at her feet. This Fire can spread and burn resources unintentionally and cause trouble when it happens inside her camp.

Willow Lighter

Willow and her lucky Lighter.

Willow's special powers are her immunity to Fire damage and her exclusive Lighter. When players first start a game as Willow they will start with Willow's Lighter in their inventory. The Lighter functions similarly to a Torch, but with infinite Durability and a lower Light radius. It can be used to set objects on fire and provides light that can be used to survive the Night without being attacked by Charlie.


Objects that are set on Fire, or things such as a Camp Fire, will increase Willow's Sanity when stood by. The larger the Fire, the more Sanity is regained up to 10 Sanity per minute. Willow must stand quite close to a Fire to gain this buff, but as she is immune to the damage there is no risk in doing so.

DisadvantageEdit

When Willow is at 60 or less Sanity she will randomly light a small Fire at her feet and say, "Tee Hee!", "I made a fire!", or "Oops." This is triggered without warning when at low Sanity. The small fire created is capable of starting forest fires and setting important player structures and objects on fire. Caution is advised when at low Sanity with Willow.

Although the Fire is triggered from low Sanity, like any other Fire, it is capable of raising Willow's Sanity when stood by. When the Fire goes out it will leave a pile of Ashes, similar to a Camp Fire.

Don't Starve Character Willow

Glommer Main article: Guides/Character guide-Willow

  • There is no cap to the amount of Sanity/min that Willow can gain from multiple Fires. Using the so the player can drop multiple flammable items nearby ( Grass, Logs etc.) and then set them on fire to gain massive amounts of Sanity and Warmth. Note that a single stack counts as a single fire, so any items will need to be dropped separately.
    • On the console version, the drop command can be used to drop all items in the same spot as separate stacks. With enough items, sanity can be instantly restored.
    • This is only really worth it in versions of the game where you can construct an Ice Flingomatic, which can preserve the items at little cost.
  • An Ice Flingomatic can help prevent base fires caused by Willow's low sanity.
  • Due to her immunity to Fire, Willow can set ablaze items in her inventory to regain Sanity, get warm, and produce a large light radius bigger than all other portable sources. Care must be taken to avoid getting close to flammable objects while doing this.
    • Saplings or Grass Tufts have a nearly 30 second burn time, making them ideal for this strategy. Once more, a stack that's on fire counts as a single fire, regardless of its size.
    • A flaming stack of items can be extinguished by combining it with another stack (even if that stack is on fire as well). However, combining a non-flaming stack with a flaming stack will do nothing.
    • Saplings or Grass Tufts should be extinguished before the 25 second mark to give a wider margin of error.
    • Neutral mobs can be killed, without fighting them, by chasing them with flaming items.
    • It is inadvisable to do this during Summer which will cause heat issues.
  • Other light sources are still important. Torches, the Miner Helmet and the Lantern are still necessary for situations where a flaming item can cause unwanted fires, but a larger light source than the lighter is needed.
  • A Top Hat and the lighter are enough to overcome the sanity drain of darkness.


Placeholder TriviaEdit

  • Willow's voice is played by a flute.
  • Willow's age is in the early 20's.
  • Willow may be based on "The Firestarter" novel from Stephen King.
  • Willow has a skull in the game files.
  • According to her examinations of the Tent and the Siesta Lean-To, Willow was a Girl Scout, and she earned all of the patches.
  • Willow's previous perk, before the Strange New Powers update, was to light Fires at her feet when in darkness - like she does when low on Sanity now.
  • Willow seems to hate Rabbits, according to her quotes when examining them.
  • She has a soft spot for the Koalefant, according to her examination quotes.
  • When struck by Lightning in DLCs, Willow, like most other Characters, is shown to have bones in her hair. In addition to this, she also has bones in her skirt as well.

Willow

Willow is one of the 11 playable Characters in Don't Starve Together. She is a young woman suffering from the mental disease Pyromania, and as such her character revolves around fire, for better or worse.

In Don't Starve Together, she is not resistant to Fire damage, and regenerates Sanity when near certain fire source (she will get hurt near forest fires or anything that burns). It takes approximately 4 seconds for her to start receiving fire damage, while she takes 2 damage per second when she is in fire. She also comes equipped with Willow's Lighter, which is a limited source of Light and Bernie her personal Teddy Bear. This gives her an easier time when dealing with the dark and low Sanity. Willow also has only 120 maximum Sanity and when she is at low Sanity, she will lose body temperature, leading to Freezing.

Willow Lighter

Willow and her lucky Lighter.

Willow's special powers are her resistance to Fire damage and exclusive Lighter and Teddy Bear.

When players first start a game as Willow they will start with Willow's Lighter and Bernie in their inventory. The Lighter functions similarly to a Torch, but with longer Durability and a lower Light radius. It can be used to set objects on Fire and Cooking Food while also providing Light that can be used to survive the Night without being attacked by Charlie. Bernie on the other hand seemingly has no function, when normally inspected. Instead, when Willow reaches insanity (below 18 Sanity) Bernie starts to animate and walk around when dropped on the ground. As long as Bernie is "alive", any hostile Shadow Creatures that spawn, will attack Bernie instead of Willow.

Objects that are set on Fire, or things such as a Camp Fire, will increase Willow's Sanity when stood by. The larger the Fire, the more Sanity is regained up to 11 Sanity per minute. Willow must stand quite close to a Fire to gain this buff, but as she is immune to the damage for the first 3 seconds, and then 50% resistant to it, there is no big risk in doing so.

DisadvantageEdit

Willow will lose body temperature when insane, leading to Freezing, but Bernie will distract Shadow Creatures and therefore not allow them to attack Willow.

Note that a single stack counts as a single fire, so any items will need to be dropped separately. This is only really worth it if the player can construct an Ice Flingomatic, which can preserve the items at little cost.
  • Alternatively, Willow can ignite a few planted Saplings or Grass Tufts, stand by them for about 20 seconds, and then extinguish them by digging them up with a Shovel and quickly picking them up. This can provide a much faster sanity regeneration than standing by a Firepit.
  • Despite its utility, it is advised to eventually move to better portable Light sources than Willow's Lighter. Things like Torches, the Miner Helmet and the Lantern will provide much more better light radius and versatility than the Lighter, with a little maintenance.
  • A Top Hat and the lighter or a torch are enough to overcome the sanity drain of darkness.
  • Her ability to Freeze can be really useful during Summer as long as players can keep Bernie in good condition with Sewing Kits.
    • It is advised to craft a backup Bernie to drop down when the first one is worn out.
