A new class is coming to the game!

The mysteries around the statue in Incarnam are beginning to take shape. It’s finally time to dispel all of the mystery surrounding this strange character and it’s… form. The statue is none other than the representation of… the new class coming to WAKFU: the Huppermages!

While Ogrest’s Chaos was in full swing on the surface of the World of Twelve, the Huppermages decided to leave in order to save their school. Shortly after they fled, the heart of their very island exploded and, despite all their efforts and sacrifices to save their inherited knowledge, the island crashed beneath the ocean, half submerged between sky and sea. With the world today slowly stabilizing, the Huppermages have reappeared!

So, why this sudden disappearance? What of the famed Huppermage School? And just who are these Huppermages anyway? What do they want? We will reveal all of their secrets in the coming weeks… starting with the Huppermage School (in a devblog coming soon!)

How can you access this new class?

As with some of the new classes coming to the World of Twelve, we will unlock access to the Huppermages in several steps.

An early access...

In France, this new class will have a special relation to the DOFUS - Book 1: Julith movie. As such, it will be made available during preview screenings, contests, and other special events tied to the movie.

As for an international preview access, we are still working on ways for you to get your hands on it that would be both special and original. We're not forgetting you and we'll keep you updated very soon...

...and then all-round access!

Eventually, all players will be able to play the new class without any condition, like with any other character class.

This is just the first news regarding the new WAKFU character class, there will be more to come. And to reassure you, we will not wait for the movie to be screened in a theater near you to let you win an opportunity to play this new class in early access.

But first, a question: do you want to play a Huppermage? (Below is a sneak peek of how the Huppermage class will look, males will be revealed soon!)

“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.”

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

Ok so when I saw this was free to play my first thought was 'Oh great... here we go again, another pay to win or donate your life savings into this game to be decent', but its turning out not to be the case at all. This game is grindy and takes time, but if you want to just push buttons and feel good about yourself immediately, then this may not be your game and that's OK. Sometimes however, effort required to do something makes it have more meaning, and if this is your thing you may just like this :D

The fact that I can do more in this Free to Play MMO -without restrictions- than I can when I buy a full version of a Total War Game which then gives me the 'chance' to buy a bunch of DLC, is a commentary in itself (on both games, despite different genre / game type and I am a HUGE Total War fan).

*Items- lots of sense of humor with pets, armor, and misc items. Sort of like the humor of Borderlands, but not quite. (There's an NPC in a sewer named Dangelo who essentially is a pun of Ninja Turtles, and pets like a Ghast have descriptions which read 'I ain't afraid of no ghast!' and so on) Also, importantly, no restrictions on items that I can tell so far if you are free to play.

*Great community - helpful and teamwork is essential. Let's face it, many MMOs don't care to pretend about requiring teamwork - it's just login, get achievements, and feel good about pressing the level button. This game is not that. It's teamwork, has depth, and requires thought. If that's not your thing - great! Don't play. Leave it for people who do because this makes for a great community that works together.

*Graphics - pretty charming and actually really awesome artwork.

*Class system - did I say there were what, 700 million classes? Well maybe not THAT many, but at least 16. Yes 16, which if you can count as high as WoW classes, well then this is a LOT compared to many MMOs. Beyond that, yea it's complicated "Oh noes! Don't try! Too hard!", wrong! A game with some complexity is a great thing, its not going to hand you things, but its not going to stomp your face in either by giving you experience debt you need to clear by using item shop items (Runes of Magic).

Butt weight, there's more! (and yes those awful wrong use of word errors got your attention!): You pick a class, then you have 5 tabs of stuff to put points into, so not only are there a ton of classes to pick from, but there's a very custom way you can build your char. If you're not sure, look it up or ask someone. Find a guild -

*Guilds - did I say find a guild? Find a guild! Guilds matter in this game, and apparently there's even complicated politics with certain Nations owning certain regions etc.

*Crafting - there's several paths to take, and you can do all professions.

*It's free, and they give you a House, 5 character slots, you can wear all the gear, they let you use the AH, you can sell items remotely too apparently by dropping a bag and selling.

*Gathering - there is this very cool anti-bot system, where if you are gathering it comes up like a 'fight' with this npc, but actually you and it just stand apart from one another and you have to select the same images around you as it has. If you do this correctly, you get bonus resources and not just a few either. Pretty sweet and easy!

*Biomes - I don't even know what this is and I'm excited! (:S review pending here) Also plenty of environments it seems and cool stuff in each.

*Nations- player driven, can elect govenors of Nations, collect taxes, set foreign policy, control regions, etc. Like Eve but without the crying about how broken capital ships are.

*Pvp is a thing, more to come (tm).

I'd say overall, having not spent any money on it, having joined a guild where folks are really helpful and kind, I would say check this game out. It's free, all it costs you is bandwidth for a bit and you may find you like it. If not, you tried it and can move on to other games.

Wakfu = endless grind with no reward in a good looking world and different biome.

if you are going to play this? better get some medicine to make your brain numb.


EDIT: someone told me that i played this game so long yet I didn't reccomend it. Don't get me wrong.
I actually enjoyed this game, it is unique and the art style is superb. I even made friends in-game. The thing is, this game is so premature, it is a flower yet to bloom, Its a bit hazy to me but I felt like the first time I played this was year 2010, I quit playing it because it is becoming a chore than a game, I waited so long to see if this game will evolved and be less-tiring and be more fun, and yet it is still not good.

It's a good game to be honest, that's why i didn't rate it like 1/10 or 0/10

But I'll still not recommending this game. It's too bad that this is a grindfest game.

It's kinda rare to see Turn Based Strategy MMORPG.
Wakfu is one of those rare gem. The gameplay kinda similar to Final Fantasy Tactics, but you only control 1 character, well. with sidekicks though, but still not much.

Now on to the review.
+ So many different class to choose of. Each class have quite a lot of skill, you could make your own unique build.
+ There's a profession system in this game, so apart from the main game itself, you could become a farmer, a blacksmith, tailor, and many more.
+ Community oriented game, you can't sell your stuff to NPC, this game is really community based game, you must actually sell it to people, or... just throw it out. There's Region president election, Guild, and many more. You can join the bad guys, or become a guard instead.
+ For people who prefers playing alone, there's a sidekick system. At least, there's someone to accompany you. Though, i recommend you playing with actual players.

- The community is almost non-existent, many people said this game is still alive, but that's not applied in my case. I'm playing in asia server, not sure about other server though.
- Grindfest, and it's even worse than other MMO in general in my opinion.
- Customization, There's costume and stuff, but... well, it's not rare to see people with a same face.
- Progression, this game had quite an interesting story, but to progress in the main story is really hard. The level gap to actually progress in this game is really high.

If you have a friend to play with you, i really recommend this game, It's really fun to play wakfu together. If not, find one
right away, join a guild, and have fun.

Dont play this, the game is a grind fest, ankama the company in charge little do to kept the player base but some crappy "discount on items"

Playing alone? totally dont play this, the only way to play this game is with a group if you dont have it will only hell for you. Now you can multi-account like the 90% of the playerbase yeah most people in game are just alt of someguy who need it to do the dungeons in game.

The balance between clasess is awful literally, some are completily forgotten without any changes in years and others got totally reworked crushing the ones without a rework, you can say "someday they will rework my class" but it will take years and im not exagerating, ankama updates takes month or even years.

Updates ? sure if you can wait 6 months or year for a simple bugfix

So plz dont waste you time in this like i did.

I have played Wakfu since the first beta. Since the very start of the game. Since 2011. I thought Ankama Games had the right idea by combining their great game with a great video game company like Valve. Since Ankama Games is a French game company, creating a connection with the United States and other countries really helped the game with one of the problems it had, population of the English servers.

The things that make this game great are the ideas introduced into the game mechanics itself.

  • The grid-based strategy aspect of the game, combined with the different ways of stat growth and play made this game trully creative with the way players enjoyed the game on a fighting aspect.
  • Another great form of the game is the creative design of the world of Wakfu. Every city, every character, every monster is unique and beautiful.
  • One more great feature of the game is the way real people manipulate with the enviornment, the government, and the people who play the game. Wakfu shines with the idea that people have everything and anything to do with the world in which the players play in. The player can manipulate the mobs in given areas. The player can vote for government officals to enact rules for the country to follow.

However, no game is perfect. Wakfu has problems, and unfortunatly the problems happen to be fairly large.

  • Because Wakfu is a game made from a French company, support is not the best when something happens to happen, whether it be in the game or in real life.
  • Although the content is large and the world of Wakfu is large, content seems to be lacking for people who don't want to 'level up'. There aren't many different ways to enjoy the game to its fullest, and although Ankama Games has tried to include ways of enjoying the game, it doesn't seem enough to really keep the players they recieve.

I believe Wakfu is a great game and it should be looked at for players who want something different in their MMO. However, Wakfu lacks the ability to keep the players they recieve and although I greatly enjoy the game, and everything it provides, I can't help hoping for more of the game. 6.8/10
