Al Howin: The Return

Another year, another haunted festival: Al Howin! What would this celebration be without a little trick and… lots of treats! Defend the World of Twelve from troublemakers that only celebrate by spreading curses and stealing candy. The spooky event starts today!

From today, 25th of October (10:00 AM server time), to 8th of November (10:00 AM server time) the wicked witch of Al Howin has returned to curse… and to swear!

It’s time to dispatch her, and her wicked minions from causing chaos. After all, how can little Astrubian trick-and-treaters enjoy themselves with the presence of such danger?

Make Astrub streets safe again and be rewarded for it. Here are the details: 

  • An exclusive dungeon available in Astrub for the duration of the event.
  • A legion of Cursed Gobballs.
  • Villagers with an unusual appearance: the “Pumpkwinner”.
  • Almokens, Almokens, Almokens!
Take part this year for the chance of new rewards (in addition to last year’s rewards):
  • 4 new exclusive Haven Bag decorations.

  • 1 exclusive costume.
And if you’re a bit late preparing your Al Howin costume, you can get your hands on a new Al Howin Mystery Box, full of spooky-related costumes, pets and more!

So don’t delay, take to Astrub today and free it from the curse of that wicked ol’ witch!

New Times in Astrub: It's online!

You’re feeling pretty excited, and that’s to be expected. The “New Times in Astrub” update is online! The ultimate boss Sham Moon is ready and waiting for you, but he’s not the only one! Oh, and be careful when guzzling down wines from the Villainy Vineyard…

The new Update 1.48 is online! On the agenda is a monkey who doesn’t dance for any organ-grinder, a vineyard that will give you some real sorrows to drown, and a brand new Astrub. Want to know more? Read on!

Astrub Revamp

Intrepid explorers starting out their first steps into the World of Twelve will be pleased to know that Astrub’s varied regions can’t be explored in just one day!

The revamped island of Astrub features a sleepy fishing hamlet, golden fields of wheat and barley, thick forests featuring sentient trees (yes, sentient!) and towering mountain ranges watching down over the city. With all these sights, and many more, even the World of Twelve’s proudest nations can’t help but to rear their heads with envy.

Oh, and before we forget, steer clear from the southern crypts if you want to keep your head (and maybe even your soul!)

In the revamped Astrub you will find:
  • New regions with their own ecosystems, monsters and Clan Members.
  • ‘Day and Night’ cycles.
  • Weather effects!
New Dungeon: Villainy Vineyards
You’ve probably taken a stroll through a Pandawa brewery and thought, ‘yeah, this seems like a jolly place – oh, a pint of Bamboo Milk? Another? Sure. Uh… another? I think I’ve had enough… oh, go on then!’

Well, whatever you thought about Pandawa breweries, forget it! Monk Island’s  ‘Villainy Vineyard’ works a little differently: you’re more likely to end up leaving in a coffin than inebriated… or maybe in a coffin… inebriated!

The wine created here has become such a symbol of danger, that merely possessing a bottle tells the rest of the world that you fear nothing and if you don’t feel prepared, you can read about it in the devblog by clicking here.

Ultimate Boss: Sham Moon
We were going to tell you all about WAKFU’s next Ultimate Boss but we’ve got a bit of a monkey problem right now... all you need to know is that while this monkey might be a sham, he's here to cause trouble and it'll take the bravest heroes to put him in his place!

After all, the survivors will be privy to...
  • A complete Set (8 items) at the token machine.
  • 4 crafted items.
  • 3 looted items, including 1 epic rarity, 1 emblem in seven different versions.
  • 1 relic to craft at the end of a hard-to-get quest.
Oh, and the first group to defeat this boss will be handsomely rewarded! Read all about this event here

Quest of Nations: Chapter 4
If you haven’t started the Quest of Nations yet (or completed Chapters 1, 2 or 3)… STOP READING NOW!

For the 4th Chapter of the Quest of Nations, you’ll be driven to a city housing the World of Twelve’s sly, twisted and the downright scumbags (sorry Brakmarians!).

You guessed it! Brakmar will be the stage for the next part of this epic quest. With the help of a guide, journey into the slums of the city and investigate the property of one of Brakmar’s biggest tycoons, leading you on a quest to, perhaps, quite literally feel the flames of’s toasty underbelly.

What does the quest involve?
  • A 3-part quest for level 35 (or above) players, continuing on from Chapter 3 in the Quest of Nations (a pre-requisite).
  • A visit to a normal Brakmarian neighborhood (in other words, a dive!).
  • New and colorful, full-blooded Brakmarian characters.
  • A majestic dungeon adventure.
  • A new 9-piece hero set: the Tough Hero set.
  • Haven Bag decorations, titles and tons of rewards to unblock or purchase from the dungeon croupier.
  • Not to mention the third and latest Orichalcum, which opens the doors to the final chapter in a coming update!
Starving to know more? Journey to the Sidimote Moors ingame or read more about the quest in the devblog here.

Hurry and experience the latest update, come and join us in-game now!

Dont have most time here on Steam.

"if you olny wanna sole this is not the game for you, you need to talk and socialize alot to do the end game part"

Wakfu is a turn based strategy game
if you are Eng or wanna type/talk eng i pick remington over Nox as i hear many ppl say Nox is death from time to time.
you not really gonna feel the lag as the game is turn based.

customer support is not the best on the Eng side, hear on the french side it good Oh it a frech game to.

Over all i say Wakfu is a good game and it get better and better.

Well that didnt keep my attention for very long. Simple cartoony graphics. Those are nice. Combat and actual gameplay is slow and boring. just to get through the tutorial I needed extra caffine. Maybe it get better but if you cant pull me in from the get go. There isnt any point in wasting more time.

This game is dead. Don't waste your money on it, it's not worth it. I played the beta and now I saw it was on Steam so I installed it. Sadly, nobody's playing it anymore, Nox (my server) was empty, and so was the market. I think french servers are still active, but I can't choose it because I don't live in France, what is kind of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. I would love to give it a good review because this game has full of potential, the graphics, the music, etc, but right now, Wakfu is dead.

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:
+ 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

- 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!

As a particular lover of turn based games and role playing games in general, I decided to give a try to this MMO. Once he landed on Steam, I got into the beta and started to enjoy the universe of the World of the Twelve.
Despite having few hours compared to many other players, I can say this game is actually enjoyable and well made. However, there are some factors that could lead some people to avoid this title for various reasons. Let's analize every detail of the game. If you want to skip the wall of text, just go to the end, where there's a short version.


The graphic is 2,5D Cartoonish - Style, similar to animes. I like it, but somebody may not appreciate it. Colourful environments, characters and enemies (aka mobs).
However, sometimes you'll encouter a bunch of graphical bugs like invisible enemies, sidekicks not appearing, your avatar being nude (yes, you heard it right!) or colors that make your eyes to cry blood (phosphorescent enemies).
At last, talking about the active parts of the game, while the enemies are well made and be distinghuished between their gender, the characters (not including npcs) tend to be more feminine. If you give a try to the game, you'll notice that even the males look like females.


There isn't so much to say about the sound. Each sector has its own, enjoyable track, including islands. The only bug you may encounter is an infinite loop after the dungeon of Zeppelantern.


Here we come, in the longest part of the review. Let's start with the choice of your avatar. You can choose between 15 different races, each one with its peculiarities and abilities. You can even decide if you want to have a male or a female, with the exception of the foggernaut (it's a robot!).
Regarding the gamestyle, it's a turn - based game during the fights against the mobs and the other players, while it's in real time during your journeys, explorations, harvests and crafts. Yes, because in this game you don't only get experience by killing tons of monsters or by completing dungeons you may access with specific keys and after you reach certain levels, but you can also produce your own items by collecting the resources in the environment and by crafting them in specific workshops.
You can also decide to group with some other people (or recruit up to 2 sidekicks) to face evil forces or stronger enemies that you couldn't defeat if you were alone.
Now the negative aspects of the gameplay. The tutorial itself is kinda crappy, made not properly because it teaches you only some parts of the game. It's useful just to know how's the interface, how to fight and how to collect and plant the enemies in the field in order to generate a wave of monsters to fight. Ah yeah, also to get the starting experience when you'll start with the real game itself.
The second most negative aspect is the interface. It isn't intuitive at the beginning, you can't move nor rotate the camera while you're in real time (but you can zoom in and out), while in the turn-based combats you can move it in a way the game doesn't explain. In fact, it doesn't tell you that holding the right button of the mouse and moving the cursor on the borders of your screen will allow you to see the entire battlefield.
And, at last, the quest system of the main missions is kinda...lame. You don't get involved in the main story and you do just some random quests in order to get experience and your first and only free sidekick. But, considering how's the game, you don't play it surely for the main quests.


The game is totally f2p. You're granted access to every part of the game (with the exception of the last 2 islands introduced not long ago), you can choose a nation at level 18 and do every kind of job. The nation system will allow you to player versus player fights and each nation has its own peculiarities. You're granted a free sidekick you can keep forever with every single character you make (until 5 per account) plus a free additional sidekick with a weekly rotation system.
The real money allows you to buy the sidekicks and keep them forever, cosmetics, costumes and booster packs that let you drop more loot and get more experience (in a small percentage however) plus the access to the last 2 optional islands. However, these zones are reserved for characters around level 140+.



- 15 races to choose from, with possibility of gender changing, that can reach until level 200.
- Different zones and islands to explore, with a huge variety of enemies
- 4 Nations to choose from, each one with its dominant element and peculiarities.
- PVP, Guilds and PVE system
- Huge quantity of dungeons, with specific dungeons you may find only in a certain nation
- Rewarding system well made
- Great variety of jobs, in harvesting and crafting, letting you to get your own items and to collect kamas (the game currency) fastly
- Colourful graphics
- Good sound system
- Mobs having


- Shabby tutorial that teaches few things compared to the real potential.
- Not-so intuitive interface
- Main quests system not involving and realized superficially
- Might be boring if you focus only on getting experience
- Requires a lot of time and patience, 2 things that most people don't own...unfortunately.

I recommend to try this game at least once to every kind of afficionado of rpgs/mmorpgs. However, if you are included in one of the following categories I'm enlisting, just don't play this game:

a) You don't like turn based games
b) The story and the drama in a game is everything for you
c) The graphics is the most important thing for you
d) Anime haters
e) Average Call of Duty player

I have put a lot of time into this game. I admit, it does speak to an extremely small crowd due to the nature of the genre of game + the amount of grind you must devote. I still have a long way to go before max level (Current level 144, max is 170) So you see it does take a LONGGGG time. If you are fans of disgaea/fire emblem/other turn-based strategy game it MAY or MAY NOT be for you. You must not enter the game with the wrong mindset, and you must find others to play with. The content of the game becomes very difficult and without other players to team up with you are going to have a bad time. The community driven aspect of this game is amazing and this game has one of the best communities I've been a part of.

If you are starting this game you are going to become overwhelmed in which skills to level, and which specialties to level in which order. I admit that does suck, but there are plenty of guides out there for each class. Another thing you should do is actually read the skills instead of just blindly following a guide. I still learn new strategies/perks on my character everyday!

I hope this gives a good representation of the game; My hours speak for me and I love it!

So I didn't finish the tutorial despite my hours (I left the game open).
from the tutorial I can recommend the game for certain people.

The combat system is very unique, you have to move tiles before you attack and it is turn based. It's not my favorite but it works for some people. The art is also cartoonish and fun. The noises the characters make are kind of annoying but that's whatever.

The reason I didn't finish the tutorial was because I accidently closed the window on the last step and there was no way for me to re-open said window so I just quit.
