Considered the most balanced character, Wilson’s main characteristic is his beard, which grows gradually over time in the game and reaches its maximum size in 16 days. The beard helps the character to keep warm in the winter (when the difficulty of the game increases a lot).

When spring comes, you can shave Wilson’s beard using the Razor item. This will create the Beard Hair item, which is used in the craft of the Meat Effigy, one of three ways to resurrect in Don’t Starve.

How to unlock : is the starting character.

Willow starts the game with his own item: Willow’s Lighter. The item is an infinite source of light, but with a slightly smaller radius than that of a torch.

Unfortunately, the character is pyromaniac, so if her sanity is below 60 she can set fire to her surroundings, without the player commanding her to do so. The advantage is that it is immune to fire and restores sanity close to it.

How to unlock : 160XP (8 days).

Wolfgang is one of the fighting characters in the game. When his stomach is full, he moves faster and does triple the damage (!!!). The disadvantages are that he gets hungry faster and loses more health on his shield and around monsters.

How to unlock : 320XP (16 days).

Wendy is one of the weakest characters in the game as she does very little damage in combat. However, she can summon her sister’s ghost, who in turn can finish off several mobs quickly (but not good against bosses). Wendy also loses less sanity in the dark.

How to unlock : 640XP (32 days).

WX-78 is the robot character of Don’t Starve. Their basic attributes (health, hunger and sanity) are lower than normal but can be upgraded when eating Gears. WX-78 can also eat spoiled food without losing life or sanity.

If WX-78 is struck by lightning it enters System Overload mode and loses 33 health and gains 100 life. In this mode, the character moves much faster, emits its own light similar to that of a torch, and is immune to freezing. The mode lasts for an entire day.

The big disadvantage of WX-78 is that it takes damage in the rain.

How to unlock : 960XP (48 days).

Wickerbottom is a kind of sorceress. Its special ability is to have an exclusive menu of magic book crafts with the most varied effects. The character can also craft all the recipes from the Science Machine, without the machine, in addition to having 250 maximum health, the highest in the game.

The disadvantages of Wickerbottom is that she has insomnia, so she cannot recover sanity while sleeping and the player needs to compensate with other ways. She also loses more sanity when eating raw or spoiled food.

How to unlock : 1280XP (64 days).

Woodie starts the game with an exclusive item: the Lucia ax. The ax has infinite durability and cuts trees much faster than normal. He is also fully conscious and talks to Woodie all the time. IS.

Woodie’s disadvantage is his curse. It has its own attribute with a wooden log icon. When this bar reaches 25% or less, the character turns into a Lobicastor (obviously, half man and half beaver). In this form all the game’s HUD disappears, including the inventory, leaving only the wooden meter. The meter increases as you eat wooden items, and if it reaches 0, Woodie returns to normal form with all attributes at 50.

While in Lobicastor form, Woodie loses sanity much faster, but absorbs 80% of the damage and is able to cut down trees, dig, mine and destroy buildings, as well as having unlimited night vision.

How to unlock : 1600XP (80 days).

Wes is a mime unable to speak. He is considered one of the worst characters in the game as he has lower basic attributes than normal and also gets hungry faster.

Wes’s unique advantage is also not very good. He has the ability to craft balloons at a cost of 5 sanity. The balloons explode causing 5 damage to everything around them, and can also cause chain reactions with other balloons nearby. They can also be used to attract mobs.

How to unlock : Find Wes’ rescue in Adventure Mode.

Maxwell is one of the most interesting characters in the game. Despite having a lower maximum health than normal, he naturally recovers sanity over time, unlike all the other characters in the game. This allows him to perform actions that spend sanity without any concern.

Maxwell also starts the game with several items: Shadow Sword, Shadow Armor, Purple Gem, 4 Nightmare Foods and an Umbra Codex. The Codex serves to summon shadow puppets in exchange for 15 health and 2 Nightmare Foods. In addition, each puppet reduces Maxwell’s maximum sanity by 55.

Maxwell’s shadow puppets can perform any activity, from farming any material to fighting. However, they only have 1 HP, so they are not suitable for fights. Upon dying, puppets regenerate the maximum lost sanity.

How to unlock : Complete Adventure Mode.

Wigfrid is the second fighting character, alongside Wolfgang. Its advantages are all related to combat: it deals 25% more weapon damage and takes 25% less damage. By killing enemies, it regenerates life and sanity.

Wigfrid also starts the game with his own items: Battle Spear and Battle Helm, which are improved versions of the Spear and the Football Helmet.

The disadvantage of Wigfrid is that she only eats meat, that is, you cannot eat various items easily found around the island.

How to unlock : 1920XP in Reign of Giants.

Webber is a child who was eaten by a spider, but did not die, and now lives inside it. Like Wilson, his main advantage is the beard that helps to isolate the cold. Despite providing only 75% of Wilson’s drool protection, Webber’s beard grows faster and reaches full length in 9 days.

Webber also has advantages related to spiders. They see Webber as a neutral being, so they don’t attack you for free. Also, if you give meat to a spider it will follow you for a full day, attacking any hostile mob for you. Webber does not lose sanity around spiders and can also build its own nest.

Webber’s only downside is that normally neutral monsters, but hostile to spiders will attack you.

How to unlock : In Reign of Giants, find the Skull of Webber as a drop of spiders. Then, bury the skull in some open pit. Lightning will strike the pit immediately and the character will revive.

Winona is an accomplished engineer. Its main feature is the exclusive engineering tab through which it can craft various items of its own.

Winona starts the game with 3 Reliable Tapes capable of repairing several damaged items, in addition to being necessary in the craft of your engineering items, which are:

  • Winona searchlight: used as a light source.
  • Winona’s Catapult: deals area damage.
  • Winona generator: supplies Winona crafts with energy.
  • Winona’s generator: it also supplies Winona’s crafts with energy, but its capacity is much greater.

Winona’s disadvantages are only related to her work. She gets hungry fast if she works hard, and if her hunger is below 50, her crafts will be delayed.

Wortox is one of the last characters added in Don’t Starve Togheter. Its main feature is the use of Souls, items exclusive to the character.

Wortox starts the game with 6 Souls and can collect more than any dead creature in the game. It is not necessary for Wortox himself to kill them, just get close to any dead creature that Alma will run alone for the character.

Souls are used to use a kind of dimensional jump in which Wortox disappears and appears in the chosen place. The skill is perfect for evading mobs. In addition, Souls can be dropped to heal allies and feed Wortox himself, in exchange for sanity

The disadvantage of Wortox is that it receives only half the food nutrition, so it is difficult to keep it well fed without using Souls. He also needs to be careful not to accumulate more than 20 Souls (so he must be careful when passing near them), otherwise he loses 20 sanity.

How to unlock : Don’t Starve Togheter exclusive and obtained through Wortox Chest, Wortox Deluxe Chest or 2700 Spools.

Wormwood is a species of humanoid plant that has a unique crafts menu. The main characteristic of the character is the affinity with plants, which allows him to plant seeds without the need for farms. For each planting, Wormwood gains 10 sanity.

The disadvantage of Wormwood is that it loses sanity whenever it is near a plant that receives damage. This involves burning, cutting and even harvesting. He is also more susceptible to fire than other characters.

Warly is a professional cook and the last character to be added to the game. He starts the game with a portable pan and a bag that keeps food for longer.

Warly also has an exclusive menu of recipes that give the character special abilities, from increasing its damage, creating a light source and inverting attributes, to dealing with climate changes by increasing or decreasing its body temperature.

Warly’s disadvantage is that he is unable to eat food that has not been properly prepared in his pot. This involves spoiled, raw or any other food that has been made otherwise. He is also hungry faster than normal.

Warly also doesn’t like to eat the same thing every day. If you repeat the same food within 2 days, the gain in attributes will be less than normal.
