Wilba is a playable Character exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. She is the daughter of Queen Malfalfa, making her the Princess of the Pig kingdom. She has also inherited the curse of being a Werepig from her father. Wilba is the only Hamlet character that cannot be unlocked via Experience.
Wilba starts as a Mob in the Souvenir Shop located two rooms to the left in the Palace. She tells the player that she lost the Royal Crown and is therefore grounded. The player must kill the Queen Womant and return the Royal Crown to the Pig Queen. Once the player does this, Wilba will be unlocked as a playable character and disappear from her room.
Given Royal Crown
As Wilba is a pig princess, pigs will not panic or attack her for stealing, such as picking Grass or Flowers from farms. In addition, pigs will occasionally gift her basic resources (Twigs, Flint, Rocks, Grass, Logs and Seeds). She can do whatever she pleases in Pig Towns. However, Royal Guards will still retaliate if she attacks them or a Pig Trader near them. Pigs in the base game will also give Wilba basic resources. In the Shipwrecked DLC, Wildbores will never attack her if she is near them multiple times.
She can eat monster foods (Monster Meat, Bean Bugs and Gummy Slugs, including cooked and dried variations) without receiving negative effects on health and sanity. She can also eat spoiled food without any loss of sanity.
Her Werepig form has some special powers:
- Night vision, which means she is immune to Charlie.
- Immune to Freezing, Overheating and Fog.
- Running speed 50% faster.
- No loss of Sanity in darkness.
- Her attack does 59.5 damage.
- Has more Health (350)
- Heals herself by 0.5 per second as long as she is not starving.
- Is able to mine, chop, dig, hammer and hack objects.
- She is still able to pick up, use, and craft items, while the Werebeaver cannot.
- The Werebeaver is immune to Poison, while she is not.
- The Werebeaver is able to absorb 75% of incoming damage, while she cannot.
- The Map is still available to her.
Wilba reverts back to her normal pig form after the Full Moon or Blood Moon ends. If the transformation was induced by eating monster food, she will turn back after 1 Day. Each monster food eaten will extend the duration of the transformation by half a Day. Upon returning to her normal form, Wilba will drop 2 Beard Hairs.
Wearing the Silver Necklace will prevent Wilba from turning into a Werepig, but will drain Sanity instead.
Wilba is afraid of the dark, and will lose Sanity at 1.5 times the normal rate in darkness. Coupled with her low maximum Sanity of 100, this makes it possible to quickly switch between sane and insane states.
In her Werepig form, she also has some disadvantages:
- Cannot equip items.
- Cannot ride Beefalo or Boats.
- Her Hunger drains 400% the rate of normal drain.
- She is a Monster, causing Pigs and other friendly mobs to attack her on sight.
- Wilba was added in the Early Access of Hamlet.
- Wilba's voice is played by an Ocarina, and at the end of each time she speaks, there will be an oink.
- In the forum post introducing her as a playable character, she is described as follows: "Daughter to Queen Malfalfa, Princess Wilba has the love of her people. If only she wanted the job. She would much rather be out in the world exploring and soaking up life, even if she still requires a nightlight when she gets tucked in."
- In the forum post introducing her Werepig condition, the following is said: "Wilba has inherited one of her father's more colourful characteristics, namely, she now carries the same curse that inflicts all of her father's family with dreaded werepigism."
- Wilba's style of speech is a parody of Shakespearean English. Other Hamlet Pigs also speak this way.
- The player is able to kill Wilba before unlocking her in the Palace. She will drop one Pig Skin and one Meat. Once she has been killed, she will never respawn, forcing the player to create another world to unlock her.
- Wilba's spawn code before you unlock her is grounded_wilba, implying she was grounded for losing the Crown by her mother, Queen Malfalfa.
- This could also mean that she's grounded in gaming terms (unable to be played)
- Wilba's Werepig form was added in the February 7th, 2019 update, also known as the Character Update.
- Before the Character Update, her perks read as follows: "Is a pig. Is royalty. Is afraid of the dark."
- Wilba and Wormwood may be the first survivors to originate from The Constant and not the real world like the others.
- Her hair and bow have bones, as shown when struck by lightning.
- Wilba may be a reference to the protagonist of 'Charlotte's Web' due to the fact she is also a pig, and similarly named 'Wilbur'
- The text that follows completing Adventure Mode as Wilba will use masculine pronouns.
- When she is on a Boat, she will not turn into a Werepig. She will turn once she exits the Boat and a new phase of the Day begins.
