“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!

  • 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.
  • Political life: NPCs are so yesterday… Write your own destiny and join the political dance of your Nation. Become Governor or one of his ministers, and make decisions that will impact thousands of players.

I loved Final Fantasy Tactics A2 and the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series and always wished for a multiplayer version of those games. This game does a pretty good job of putting the combat experiences of those games in a multiplayer setting.

Besides the combat, I also enjoyed the game's environmental mechanics because it kind of gives me a Harvest Moon or Animal Crossing kind of vibe where the world gives you these resources to do things with, and the players are responsible for tending to them or making something out of them.

As for the grinding, I personally don't know if it is actually necessary or not, but in any case I managed to skip the first story quests altogether and head to my chosen nation (Bonta) and then proceeded to grind the highest level mobs and dungeons that I could manage, purely because I love overwhelming myself in these tactics games and barely pulling through.

It also helps that the only punishment for death is no exp gain for a lost battle, reduced stats for about 3 minutes and a respawn back to the previous checkpoint area of your choosing.

I've spent no money on the game so far, but I might in the future if I keep playing. Paying players get some nice bonuses, but I've been playing comfortably without them. There's also some nifty costumes and stuff too.

I recommend the game because it's free and I enjoy it.
If you get it, I'd definitely recommend doing the tutorial and trying out a few different classes. I went through a couple classes and then went with the Elitrope as my main because I personally loved the portal mechanic. My brother went with the archer because he loved the obscene range and then the huppermage because of the elemental/light attack dynamic. There's a lot of variety, so don't be afraid to try a few out. Also, your lower level alts will gain an experience multiplier to make grinding levels faster,

This game looks perfect, what I really wanted to play. However, it somehow requires Java 1.6 (I don't know If this is a bug or not...) and since I cannot download 1.6 (Java stopped supporting it a while ago, I checked) I cannot play the game. Hopefully, the developers either 1. Fix the "Bug" (?) or 2. Update the game.

Love the show, don't love the game.

Improvements I think that are worth my time:

*Making dungeons playable with a single character

*Balancing outside mobs (EVEN in the STARTING AREA a level 6 and level 3 are easier to kill than a level 3 and level 5 cause the level 5 can spam heals and the level 3's AI tells it that if it gets hit run on a tile that heals every enemy, for a noob and even a returning player when your trying to do the early level grind it will kill you if you are not careful and they are the starting area mobs, like really?)

*Don't give stat point control to your player classes (YOUR NOT DARK SOULS, you have a level cap and rng on good equipment making players rethink the points they spend constantly)

*Don't have a spell level up system if you keep having to fix it (After playing tons of other mmorpgs, seeing a xp grind system slapped onto spells(skills) makes the game punishing when after hours of grinding you find out that one spell in your build becomes pointless and should be switched out.)

*Lower the drop rate on emotes or any cosmetic items (If I can't play the guitar in battle then it does NOT need to instill the faith I have of the sheer chance of a werewolf trying to dry hump my leg before it ever thinks about droping.)

*Cut all the grinding for xp in half (Oh I don't mean like get rid of the xp booster, keep those and make them give even more xp than before! I understand you got to make a living but people who can't invest in alternate characters without a booster makes them jump ship to another game.)

*Fix your REPORT FEATURE (I think they still haven't fixed the bug that makes your computer freeze the screen almost every 5 seconds of character movement.)

Til then enjoy having the Nox server look like a ghost town. Really is looking more empty everyday I get back on.

The anime for this game is great and explains a lot about the lore and class' but the game is far more difficult than what it lets on to be.

First off the game is loaded with bugs and not the kind that can help the player early game.

Secondly the begining quests are a tad bit far apart in levels as when i got to level 5 they sent me on a level 10 quest.

Honestly this game could use a lot of work but how it is now i cannot reccomend it to anyone unless they enjoy mindless level grinding after each quest.

On a more personal note that i do not let spoil my reviews; i hate games that let you customize your stats each and every level rather than the game just giving you whats balanced as to me that says the developer got lazy with the game

I'd like to start saying my hours played isnt very accurate. I played via Wakfu launcher for much more than i did here.

This game is a remake of a popular game known as Final Fantasy Tactics. a Square grid based, turn based tactical game.

There are some great features of the game but most are overshadowed with extreme lacklustre support and game management. Ranging from hacks and exploits never being dealt with causing the entire auction house(market) to flood kamas into the game nulifying the years spent aquiring them. Top end-endgame gear being duplicated and flooding the system making them about as expensive as a level 20 set.

Even dealing with the PKing system which is an absolute joke if you run into a kiddie that has nothing better to do then camp decent leveling zones ( such as A.W) and kill you for no reason hours on end. (Which wasnt really a problem after a while because i just Ddos'd him anytime i needed to enter the zone again so my friends and I could atleast play the game hassle free.)

Then there is the subscription issue. As a player that has been with Wakfu and Dofus for many years now and owns all DLC and content. My subscription has finally ran out and I am no longer able to enter most end-game zones to further progress my character. So I provided Wakfu with money to assist with producing new content for them to release the content and then make me pay again to play on it... Seems a bit stupid from a consumers prospective. My friends and I have now actually quit Wakfu due to extreme neglect from Management and lack of content advancements over the years.

While i DO recommend this game for a new users for a few hours to pass some time. I do not however advise you to ever pay them for their lack of service and progress and just quit once it gets a little boring after a hour or two.

PS. There is a reason the "Bug and Issues" forum is bigger than the "General Disucssions" forum..

Final Fantasy Tactics/Disgaea/2.5D-Turnbased-Game meets French Anime: The MMORPG.

If you're not sold by that phrase, then this game probably isn't for you.

If you are sold, then prepare for a good co-op experience.

That being said, this game mostly shines with its' co-op play. Unfortunately, there seems to be a big void between starting players and end-game players.

If you're starting out in this game, do your best to make links with other people. Make friends, bring friends along, join a guild, anything like that. It'll make the journey from new to end-game all the more pleasant, enjoyable, and certainly easier.

I believe this game is worth your time. You can choose to invest money in the game, or you can choose not to. Either way you will have a fun time. This game is like Capitalism in a game format. You always want to make more money and increase your businesses and professions. The story is incomplete at the moment but it's a very beautful and interesting gaming concept. I reccommend it to everyone. It may not be the right game for everybody, but it deserves a chance. Too many people read the reviews and think this game is a waste of time. So just take the reviews with a grain of salt, and play the game and give it your own thought. Thank you for reading(:

I would love to give Wakfu an amazing review...I really would. And I would have a couple of months ago, when I was glued to the screen leveling up my Osamoda. Unfortnately, after over 1500 hours, I've come to the conclusion that Wakfu is a huge time-suck with no true, fulfilling end-game.

I have created a huge assortment of characters, trying to figure out the spells and play-styles that suit me. And while I love the handful (five) I have ended up with (Osa, Sac, Masq, Sadida, Elio), they just aren't enough to hold me to the game. Starting a new character means reliving questlines over and again...some of which have not even been finished by the developers...but which sit in your quest log and stare at you...day-in and day-out (the developers are apparently working on these...but who knows how long the questlines have been waiting to be finished up. Instead, they release new holiday material and conveniently ignore gameplay that needs to be addressed). and the monotony of the quests becomes unbearable. Your char is sent across different maps to collect items and talk to various NPC's, and it's a never-ending pace of back-and-forth-back-and-forth. Nothing changes, even though your characters do. Still, quests are all a must-do if you want your char to have special items or open up new areas that are inaccessible otherwise. So, if you take on another character...and then another...expect that you'll be bored to tears speaking to Pappy Pal and chasing after books across Astrub to obtain your dragoturkey.

Speaking of monotony...grinding is almost mandatory if you want to get anywhere. Professions can be ignored for only so long. Leveling each profession up takes a *lot* of time and patience. However, if you want to make kamas, you have to chop wood, pick herbs, trap animals, mine rocks, etc...as selling these items, or crafting with them, is the only way to really make kamas at the market. And the market is difficult to navigate, as searching for a particular item brings up only the cheapest for sale, instead of a list to choose from. This is frustrating for the simple fact that equipment is element based...and you're forced to spend kamas on equipment that you have to change to suit your particular elements...which also requires kamas. Dungeon runs gift you special coins with which to purchase new equipment, but the gear is often so expensive that it's not worth the time it takes to complete said dungeon the twenty or thirty times it takes to acquire said gear. And once acquired, that gear is linked to your character...so forget selling it at the market in hopes of upgrading to something else when the time arrives. Instead, you are forced into a grind of dun-runs. Quite often, the monotony becomes mind-numbing. Who honestly wants to pick 250 herbs or trap 250 animals just to level up a solitary profession one level---especially when each profession has 100 levels.

Each new area opened quickly loses its appeal after battling its monsters and dungeons. I hit level 120 with two of my characters...and I am *still* awaiting something new to come along at level 132. Who knows when that will be. Probably never. My time with this game is quickly drawing to a close.

PVP is, oftentimes, hugely unbalanced. Characters fifty levels over you can attack you (even if you have PVP deactivated), and there is absolutely no chance at making it out alive. And forget fairness. If you manage to combat a character around your level, and win the duel, you can be sure the player will log in with a much higher level char just to hunt you down and attack you---or call their higher level friends to do it for them. And you can be sure that some of the higher levels are strapped to the teeth with the best equipment/gear...courtesy of the cliques formed within guilds and groups. Also, fair warning: during PVP, you will be insulted, and often. If your enemy doesn't like your character or playstyle, expect to be called a plethora of rude names.

And forget if you need help from Ankama. You pretty much have to sacrifice your unborn children to accomplish reporting a technical issue. They want detailed reports and multiple screenshots for each and every problem (no matter how small the problem is), and even after complying...very little is done to fix the problem(s).

I loved this game at first. The graphics and music and spells and char classes are brilliant. But more thought needs to be put into the game and the gameplay. Because, as is, the hours spent in front of Wakfu are just not worth it when all is said and done.

2 years ago I would have gladly recommended Wakfu. It had great graphics, fun gameplay and it was sandboxy enough for things to not seem too linear. Unfortunately it kind of spiraled into a huge mess after Ankama rolled out changes that completely split the playerbase. Some people really loved the changes. Others, like me, really hated them.

While I personally wouldn't get back into the game in its current state, I wouldn't turn anyone away from checking the game out if only for the novelty. It IS a good-looking game with good-looking mechanics, unfortunately marred by excessive grindiness and a not-so-nice playerbase.

This game was almost everything I asked for artistically and combat wise and was an extreme upgrade from playing Dofus (which I also loved). I started late; last year and had a beautiful time where I met a very friendly guild, new people, and learned how to do everything up to Present dungeon with the help of many friends.

Although, everything changed when DDOS' were happening where relics were duped and things were magically bought off the market for absurd amount of kamas and everyone became rich. This did not help when the promising new update of Moon Island and Heroes where it basically made everyone play by themselves and did not have to rely on anyone else to do dungeons anymore. Things became very introvert and very independent.

Overall, I would not recommend this game if you start this year and on. The community is very small, but polite (once you get to 175s+) and is very heavy on finding a guild. You will NOT survive alone.

As agreed with many people, this game would have gone a lot further if they listened to the community.

The game itself is amazing, I love every aspect of it (aside from the grinding for professions.) I love the classes, their balance, the combat, the variety of monsters and dungeons. It really makes you use your head.

However, the Ankama support is below zero.

Check the Technical Issues subforum on their website. There are PAYMENT issues regarding Steam that haven't been resolved for nearly a year now. If you are from certain countries (for example, Hungary), you cannot make a payment through their website, because there is no credit card option there. Technically, you could buy stuff via Steam... But in practice, you can't.

If you write to their support and state your problem, they will quickly redirect you to Steam's updated privacy policy, regardless the fact that you mentioned that you've already read it. If you go ahead and do your research, take every measurement to make Steam Wallet work and you still can't buy anything from ingame--the customer service redirects you to Steam, who can't do anything about it, since it's a game-related problem.

This game is good until you don't receive something you paid for/your account is stolen/your account is suddenly wiped. I rarely see a case that got resolved. Read their forums.

If you are a casual player that won't pay for an MMORPG and doesn't want to play it for long... then play Wakfu. Otherwise, I cannot recommend it in its current state.

This game is not a game made for steam, its an Ankama game brought to steam with loads of bugs.
Playing this game alone through steam you will find nothing less than poor support and a buggy launcher with hardly any working achievements.
As much as this game is addictive, I would not recommend due to the support and amount of bugs.
If anything this game should be called "Bug-fu or Lag-fu"

I loved the animated series, so I thought I would love the game. It was relatively enjoyable, if not a bit tedious. Then all of a sudden my data kept deleting itself, and then the game wouldn't even open. After repeatedly contacting customer service and being told to do the equivalant of "turning it on and off" , they finally agreed to actually take a look at my game data. Lo and Behold, after a month of back and forth they realize that it's nothing that I did, but the games issue. They then promised to fix it soon, and to have a bit of patience.

Apparently patience means 3 months of waiting, because that's exactly how long it's been since I was able to do anything with my game. Don't even bother starting.

Honestly, I went into this game not expecting too much since it's just another RPG. I'll be truthful, the character design is extremely pleasing and creative, gameplay is. . . alright I suppose.

The issues I found, though not playing it long (for a reason), is that there's very little ambience. It gives the game an eerie feeling. . ? I mean sure there's bright colours and I can turn on my own music but besides loading screens, don't expect too much sound unless you enter a fight and EVEN THEN there's no battle music to submerge you in it. Also, besides quests I didn't see much else to do. . . Better level up!! Since there's not much else to do!

The other issue I found was that I made a character and DID the tutorial and leveled to almost level 10 in one night (which isn't difficult trust me, there's plenty of enemies). I quit the game EXPECTING IT SAVED PROGRESS that I could come back to, but INSTEAD when I reopened the game it's as if my character or rogress EXISTED in the first place. I even used the same character names and everything! So, I had to redo the entire tutorial and everything. Yes because that's my favourite part of an MMO. . . If I even open the game again and my character was deleted once more I can gaurantee that I will be furious. There's no "save" option or is it just ever so hidden away that I can't locate it. . ?

Anyways, to put it simply:

Character design - High
Graphics - High
Gameplay - Medium to low

Overall - an OK game, if you need to pass time.

I have over 100 hours sunk into this game so I feel that I can properly review this game, if you do not want to read the whole review then scroll to the bottom to see the pro's and con's, here we go.

Wakfu Is a turn based strategy anime MMO RPG (a mouth full I know) by Ankama. This game originated from France, something pretty rare to come from them, it also has a anime that is subbed and dubbed in English on Netflix. The gameplay is something new and unique to this style of game, it takes concentration and planing in battle, should you use up all the points to move in close and unleash a flurry of attack or stay back and chip away at you enemy is up to you and your class. This system makes PvP a real challenge, most classes can far well in PvP due to the way you can build your class, all classes have at least some ranged spells, even those up close types.

Oh boy the classes, one of the best things about this game next to the combat. There are 17 unique classes that all have there own style of play, some examples are the Cra, your run of the mill pew pew archers, they have accses to these things called beacons, which they can use 3 different elementle attacks on the beacon which will have different affects depending on the element (Air, Fire, Earth). Another good example is the Sram, this class is all about assassination, going invisable and closing the gap behind there prey, also they use giant scythes, whats not to love.

The community of this game is hit and miss, you will have some people that are nice and try to help you and some who spam you with guild invites because they just want more guild points. The big areas where people gather are hot spots for spam bots trying to get you to go buy accounts and that junk, just put those people on your ignore list, the starting area seems to have some pretty chill people but if you are new or do not like trash talkers DO NOT go to The Temple of Scriptures. The Temple mostly has high level people that challenge eachother to PvP at the base of the steps, after sitting there for an hour to listen in on people all they do is call eachother homophobic slurs and offensive names, unfortunately you will have to come here once a day for a quest and it is also the best place to do high level gear trading due to all the high level people hanging around there.

Are you one of those "save the earth" people? Well guess what, this game has its own eco-system that you, the player, have control over. Do you wanna make a jungle? Go right ahead. Wanna destroy another nations resorces and laugh as they can't craft anything? Well you can, you sadistic monster.

Ever wanted to be a baker, a chef, or even a talor, making cute dresses for your in game wifu? Welp get to grinding that job XP, or run for governer of a nation and have everyone look up to you as a god. Of corse if you don't want to rule a whole nation you can always run for Vice governer, or Head of the Guard, and even control the weather of the nation, if you are having a bad day, flood your lands with rain.

PROS-
+Has unique gamplay
+Can run on most systems
+Has a plethora of classes
+Not pay to play at all
+Has its own in game eco-system
+Prices in store seem really far
+Has its own government
+Anime Wifus
-------------------------------------------------
CONS-
-Small player base
-Players can leave a sour tatse in your mouth
-Takes a lot of grinding
-Can be boring playing alone
-Have to redeem all DLC code through Ankam's website
-Graphics are nothing special
-Fixed cammera can make fighting very difficult

In the end, despite its flaws I really enjoy this game, and would highly recomend it to all my friends

I didn't grow up on PC but on consule. I don't really like MMO's either. Wakfu is a amazing game. After I showed my friend the game, she showed me the actual show. I recommend this game a lot.
