The Woven Shadow is a Mob exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in A New Reign. It has 1 Health and spawns from the Ancient Floor by the Ancient Fuelweaver. The Woven Skulls will walk to the Ancient Fuelweaver to heal it. The Ancient Fuelweaver restores 400 Health by eating a Woven Shadow. The Unseen Hands that are summoned will summon a shield that makes the Ancient Fuelweaver invulnerable to any attack unless all the Unseen Hands on the field are killed. The Woven Hands can only be damaged when the player is insane. When the Ancient Fuelweaver dies, the remaining Woven Shadows will become Nightmare Fuel.
There are 2 variants of Woven Shadows, a skull-shaped Shadow and a hand-shaped Shadow. The skull variant is slower than the player, and the hand variant is faster. Apart from their appearance and speed, they have no other differences.
- Since they only have one health, they are very vulnerable to things like Earthquakes, Abigail, Weather Pain, and other forms of damage. The fight with the Ancient Fuelweaver is extremely difficult without killing the Shadows, since it can regenerate all of its health back by consuming one wave of them.
- If one does not have access to the items above, teaming up with another player or followers who can take down the shadows for them can be very crucial.
- If the player wants to remove the Woven Hands, the Nightmare Amulet can be equipped to become temporarily insane thus allowing damage to be dealt to Unseen Hands.
- Woven Shadows were introduced in the Heart of the Ruins update.
