I am playing Don't Starve Together, with a friend. I'm very experienced at the game, while my friend has played about 50 hours or so.
It's our first winter, and Deerclops is spawning (we hear the sound). I've read he has double the hp he normally has, which makes me wonder if we will be able to kill him before sanity drops to 0 and Terrorbeaks destroy us. Keep in mind that my friend is not so experienced at kiting so I might have to kill Deerclops by myself.
Coordination might be a big problem. Whoever gets the last hit on Deerclops will become his new target. So, if my friend gets the last hit, and he starts running like a rabbit... I'll be chasing Deerclops who will be chasing my friend. Funny :D but deadly, since Deerclops will be dodging my hits while i might get hit by his AoE, and will lose sanity as well.
I could try solo him, while my friend stands in a safe distance and keeps the fires going, or makes me a new armor or gets me some food. I have 3 Tentacle Spikes and a Walking Cane, 2 Log Suits (and unfortunately 60 hunger and 60 sanity, and 2 minutes until night starts).
In Don't Starve (alone) i can easily kill Deerclops. Here, however, under current conditions, I'm not so sure about it.
-Would my plan work?
-What is a safer way to kill Deerclops?
-Should i not risk (since i m not fully prepared) and just ignore Deerclops this winter?
