Reincarnamation is online!



Whether you’re a seasoned adventurer or a fearful noob, this update was made for you! From Incarnam to Moon Island, via the beaches of Bilbiza, you’re sure to find something you love. Update 1.47 is online, so it’s the perfect time to remind you about its new content!

REINCARNAMATION
 
When it comes to welcoming newcomers to WAKFU, we don’t mess around! That’s why a famous character from the Krosmoz is now waiting to meet you at the doors of Incarnam. No, you're not dreaming. Otomai himself will be delighted to accompany you to take your first steps in the World of Twelve!

A brand new tutorial, new monsters, an exclusive new cinematic and so much more. For more information, take a look at the devblog dedicated to Incarnam’s makeover.

MR. FOGGER, AND...
 
MRS FOGGER! You’ve been waiting with anticipation, and she’s finally here! The female Foggernaut is now available! A subtle combination of artificial intelligence and beauty. It’s enough to get your enemies hot under the collar and hungry for more.

A Sex and Appearance Change Potion will be given to all accounts that meet the following requirements:

  • Your account has connected at least once to WAKFU between 1 January 2016 and 10 July 2016. 
  • A Foggernaut has been created on your account on or before 10 July 2016 9:59 PM UTC.
Please note that you will only receive 1 Sex and Appearance Change Potion per account regardless of the number of Foggernaut characters you have on the account itself.


OTOMAI'S DISCIPLES QUEST REVAMP
 
Otomaï is most definitely the star of this update! Simplified steps, the revaluation of acquired experience and new rewards! This is what is waiting for you in the new version of the quest dedicated to the cult of the greatest alchemist of all time!

NEW EVENT: LA MÄDRAGUE

Because it looks like the Skätes are the ones who need to get fried. These infuriating monsters will do whatever it takes to keep you from sitting back and relaxing! Teach them a lesson and you will be duly rewarded.

MOON ISLAND ZONE 2

“I went into WAKFU with virtually no prior knowledge of the game and no expectations. I discovered something unlike any MMO I've played previously - a game that showcases some truly unique features.”
Game Informer

“If you’re a fan of the grid-based strategy rpg, rejoice. While the genre might be dying in general, games like WAKFU will be giving it life for years to come.”
83/100 – Ten Ton Hammer

“Fans of anime, MMOs, nature management, and even sociology will want to give Wakfu a try, if for no other reason than to see what happens when you let gamers run the world.”

About This Game


STEP INTO A LIMITLESS UNIVERSE

Touchdown in the World of Twelve and set off on a great adventure in WAKFU, an original massively multiplayer online role playing universe where humor goes hand in hand with action-packed, tactical battles.

Climb Mount Zinit in search of Ogrest, the fearsome ogre behind the cataclysm that devastated the World, or mark your own path across the archipelagos where the denizens of this world feverishly work to rebuild their once mighty nations.

Become a warrior, politician, merchant, or craftsman, but whatever you choose...

IN WAKFU, EVERYTHING DEPENDS ON YOU!

key Features

  • 16 original classes: No standard knight, ranger, mage and cleric here. Discover our 16 classes, each with their unique set of skills and gameplay. From Foggernauts, the robot wreckers, to Xelors, masters of time, you're sure to find the character that's right for you.

I give it 9,8/10.
If you like strategy, turn based fighting, alot of variation in how to build your hero, skills, items,spell configuration and so on, well you will love this game.


- Graphic 9/10 At some angles in fights, it feels like the view is blocked by a building, object in somekind of wrong way, other than that, VERY NICE.

- Overall feeling 10/10

- Music 10/10

- Gameplay 10/10

- Questing 9/10 = needs more quests,

- Community 8/10 = reason why not more = there are some heros that just stand and spawn "buy gold from store" messages and GM`S not directly bannig those IP´s are unfair against everyone enjoying game.
Now, why I don´t give even lower score = theres not alot of them and you can put them to your ignore list and that goes for their whole account and not just character.

- SUpport 7/10 , Outside game = great
INside game ? hmm, haven´t really noticed if there is any and WHY ARE THEY NOT REACTING TO SPAM HEROES?


- All else in game = 10/10 and theres alot alot alot alot , to write about, so I rather play and waste time with writing of all that works.


Just go into game, put like 20 hours and after that, seriasly your eather stuck for life or it´s not for you. I mean life, ones you plaid Wakfu or Dofus, you will always return to it even if you get bored sometimes.

Also, don´t miss the WAKFU ANIME Serias :D

Wakfu is a game where you try to preserve the appropriate animal population by extracting the seed of monsters and planting them in the ground to grow new monsters. Unless there are too many of them, then you must purge the disgusting sheep and bird creatures that fornicate right out in the open and overpopulate.


Pretty good game.

The one thing that's still great about this game. Ankama took their existing universe of Dofus and expanded on it. Everything is nice and lovely and vibrant, the setting is very consistent with itself. It's a great example of worldbuilding making a game notable and able to stand out above the crowds.

Gameplay---
I can handle most turnbased things, Xcom isn't a stranger to me in any way, but the turn based style does not lend itself well to multiplayer in this fashion. The gameplay doesn't change that much between level 20 and level 100. There's no real defined niche that you can build your character to fill that can't be filled by someone else of your class with 5 minutes of free time. All in all I think they kind of lost sight of what made the game good in the first place and decided that it was easier to update Dofus than it was to flesh out Wakfu more.

Tech-----
Somehow, a PC that runs Overwatch at 1080p at 100fps constant has terrible jitters in this super simple java game. I'm running 16gb of ram but the game chugs even when I use launch paramters on the standalone client and feed it up to 12gb of ram.

Overall, the game is a 3.5/5 for me if you like turn based tactical games. I'd suggest something else if you are looking for an MMO to play with friends however, the community is just about nonexistant(on Nox anyways, the North American server)

(ignore the hours; I play on the actual client)

So I played Dofus briefly in 2011 and only recently downloaded Wakfu. My main is just a level 25 Pandawa (I'm taking my time) and I think I'm in love. This game hits many points for me; it's cute, turn-based, and it's got loads of content. Score!

Also, part of the reason I like it so much is because it reminds me of Spineworld, an old MMO on miniclip (2007-9)... Gosh I'm feeling so nostalgic right now, haha. Kind of wish I downloaded Wakfu sooner... /grumbles

Seriously, if you're a fan of 2d turn-based games, try this one out.

Overall: 10/10 ☆彡

Great MMO Clicker, I highly recommend this if your looking for a relaxing but still challenging game. Beautiful graphics, very fun but serious story line, an ok class system, and most of all, friendly player base. It's not hard at all to join a guild, players manage the ecosystem, politics, and economy, and they do it well. It is not a pay to win, but pay to play is available. I never used the p2p but I certainly would if I didn't have bills to pay!

Although it is a major improvment from Dofus, there are a few bugs that can interfere and hurt your experience on the game. The game is java based and the game client tends to leak memory causing your game to lag or "stall out" and even disconnect you. Some players can take the game too serious and PWN players that just unlocked pvp or players that forgot to turn off their pvp. The reason I make that point is because the players that PWN are not just PKing but are rude and nasty.

One last thing, the story is not complete and continues with updates every 4 or 5 months from what I have seen. I consider it an up and a down; It keeps you coming back, but who likes a cliffhanger.

Overall, This is definatley a must play. AND IT HAS STEAM TRADING CARDS!

Nice little Mmorpg to play while surfing doing other things or while watching tv. Plenty of fun and yeah. It's worth a try since it's free to play and I didn't encounter any "paytowin" aspect.

short summary: -*cute -*funny -*kinda complicated on start.

-* Turn based combat system.

______
If you expect immersion like in Wow this game isn't for you since it's kinda small in general with 4 nations plenty of areas, isles & co but focuses on social aspects.
Also should you bringt atleast 1 friend with you into this game because it might get boring otherwise. Of course you're free to join one of those plenty guilds but they are mainly just inviting players for their "guild-points" they recieve for each fight you win ^^

Despite what the person bellow me says, it is actually a nice little game. I hate anime and stuff like Final Fantasy, wich is the incarnation of evil to me, but my friend would not stop pushing it. I lost my computer due to tech stuff for a little over a month, and when I logged back on there was so much spam wanting me to play this game. He said he would only stop if I played for more than an hour. So I did, and was very sceptical due to the last reviews. But the Nox server is fine, there are plenty of people still, and rarly anything gliching out or things like that. So, if you want something that almost has game machanics like Dota 2, but you can chse who you battle, this is a nice game for free then.

After having played this game for a fair share of hours (~300 by now) I feel like I am able to give an acceptable review.

Updated: With the major update for Wakfu on the 9th September 2014 there was quite something added and I will try my best to include it as well.

What's Wakfu?
Wakfu is a turn based Strategy-MMO that, to me, feels like a love-child between Ragnarok Online and Fire Emblem. And I love it.

The player is able to impact the actual economy of the world, meaning that animals, plants and trees have to be taken care of and replanted to keep the natural balance.
If that is not the case a species will go endangered or even extinct. Each nation's political system is governed by players that were voted into their ranks by others. They set the law, breaking those will result in you becoming an outlaw. Players joining the guards of their nation can hunt down outlaws and put them in jail to atone for their sins. Justice!

The graphics may seem not up to date on first glance, however when playing the game one will notice that there is actually a high level of detail in everything.

To sum up what I like and dislike:
Pros:
+ Free2Play: There is a Cash shop, however it only sells cosmetic items or Sidekicks that can also be acquired with ingame gold (Kama) instead. You can get your hands on anything without paying a cent as there are many players that sell cash shop items or currency.
+ 15 classes with three elemental specialisations to choose from.
+ 17 professions and you can master them all in one character at the same time if you want to.
+ Strategic gameplay as your composition and line-up can determine success or fail.
+ Up to two mercenaries (sidekicks) that can help you in solo and even teamplay to substitute missing players/friends
+ Economical System depending on players
(Fun fact, the money that circulates through servers is player crafted too)
+ Nations (4) and a political system governed by players
(Nations can wage war against each other)
Updated - There is now a fifth Bandit Nation players can join.
+ Many secret places or recipes(!) one can discover in the world that will reward you handsomely.
+ can be played casually
+ It's damn cute

Cons:
- The starting area (lvl 1-10): Astrub is not a fun place. You can get out of it luckily in less than an half hour and join a nation. However it wants you to do a few quests that are not fun to do in my opinion and probably put-off a fair share of people before they even really ever started the game.
Updated - The whole starting Area was revamped into something much better!
- Steam and Wakfu: If you wish to play the game via steam, you do not necessarily need an Ankama account, HOWEVER I highly recommend one to you. As you will not be able to play Wakfu whenever steam has connections issues to your server.
Updated - You are now able to login with your steam account on the Ankama website that allows you to have all conveniences Ankama Account users have. The server connection problems however may remain.
- Region bound servers
- Java: the game runs on java and everyone who played minecraft knows that java's RAM allocation is not great by default for games and you will need to allocate more by customising yours under your system settings. Else after hours of gameplay your wakfu client may slowly start to lag more and more until you relog.
- Positioning and Terrain: in rare occasions certain big tiles of the map like pillars or similar make it hard to actually click "behind" them to position your character there.
- Support: Even though I have had an okay experience with the support myself so far, everyone that I have met that had/has severe problems ingame has huge troubles with the support, to the point it feels about non-existent.
- Grindy: Not a problem to me but I know there's a fair share of people that dislike grinding.

I personally love it and have to admit I have not yet had a game like this and thus it is nice to enjoy something different.
So I would give it an 8/10

p.s. It has a great anime-like cartoon with two seasons that you should watch!
