Wildermyth Transformations Guide – All Transformations & How They Work

Hello, it’s me.

Wildermyth is an RPG all about options and decisions. You will often see your heroes grow and change together through the course of adventures. But at times, the possibility to transform them forever will appear, leading to all sorts of consequences. This guide covers how transformations work and the full list of everything you can expect to see in your ventures.

How Do Transformations Work in Wildermyth?

In Wildermyth, transformations are permanent changes to your heroes that can affect them in various ways. Some are purely cosmetic, but others can have lasting effects, either with passive or active abilities or by changing their stats as well. In some cases, if your hero happens to lose a limb in battle, this will automatically be replaced with one corresponding to the transformation.

Most of them are obtained by completing events or making certain decisions throughout them. They can affect different parts of the body (head and both arms and legs individually), but there is no set rule as some can vary greatly. Those who affect several parts will appear during the years of peace (a period that follows a chapter’s end) as a character option, so you’ll be able to either take or stop the transformation from happening.

Keep in mind that these transformations can stay with characters after you turn them into legacy heroes. Meaning after finishing an adventure, you can choose to keep the heroes in your save file, so you can take them into new campaigns with you while retaining their bonuses. Choose wisely, but also, don’t be afraid to experiment! After all, it’s part of Wildermyth’s charm.
