First Special Episode of Wakfu now available on Steam!



We are pleased to announce that the Wakfu Animation is back with a new adventure. Previously broadcast on French television, the first of the three Special Wakfu Episodes is here! The Quest for the Six Eliatrope Dofus - Book I : The Throne of Ice is now available in French and English (as well as a Spanish subtitled version.)

Synopsis:

It's already six years after our heroes saved the World of Twelve from Qilby. They've all taken the opportunity to settle down into a peaceful existence. None could imagine what awaits them.

A strange messenger has come to inform Yugo, Adamai, Ruel, and then Percedal's family, that Princess Amalia, needs them: Ogrest is having another crying fit, which is flooding a huge part of the Sadida Kingdom. Worse still, the six Eliatrope Dofus, the only things capable of stopping him, have gone missing!

Only two of the precious eggs have been located: they're being held by the odious Count Harebourg, lord of Frigost Island. He's agreed to give them back in exchange for Amalia's hand in marriage. Ready to do anything to save her people, Amalia accepts his offer and the entire Brotherhood accompanies her to Frigost.

This weekend, get ready for a double dip in additional XP! We’ll be offering a bonus of 50% for Kamas, Crafting and Combat XP for all Twelvians throughout the World of Twelve!



Blou is the Meridia of Humidity. Where Blou passes, water is not far behind, and usually where it is least expected, and that usually brings all sorts of water-borne beasts. Be very careful--what looks like an oasis may hold more dangers than you’re ready for!

Yaka is the Meridia of Industry, and for Yaka, nothing is impossible! At least as long as you know your way around a workbench. Take the most mundane of items, and put them to new, more exciting uses. Everything is possible with Yaka, and it’s awesome!

From Saturday the 13th of June (0:01 AM server time) until Sunday the 14th of June (11:59 PM server time) stalwart adventurers will earn +50% Kamas, Combat (in the dungeons listed below) and Crafting XP on all servers.

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.”

This game is great, the concept is great, but many aspects of the game are screwed or down-right bugged. And I'm only level 25 so you can see just how much I had to look at this game before I reviewed it already.

Find me in-game as "Genesis Dysproxima" (Cra) or "Genesis Galacta" (Pandawa).

Let's look at the good things first.

The economics of this game is mainly player-based. You cannot sell trash for kamas (in-game currency). to NPCs since there are no vendor NPCs. All drops are either raw items or equipments which makes not a single item be ultimately considered a trash. You can, however, sell the items that you obtain to other players for a price at the auction market. The only way you could gain kamas and increase the number of kamas in the whole economy is by minting them yourself. This economics is actually beneficial since by little means will you inflate the whole economy. Also, there are kama sinks which manages to deflate the economy. Usually these are from transportation costs or from whatever your Nation's Governor (HAIL SIGNET) does.

The battle is tactical turn-based and each character and mob are given a limited number of moves and actions. You're given time to carefully choose your actions, either by attacking from a skill in your movepool or moving, in order to eliminate the opposing party. What I like about this game is that not only is it strategic but also does not intimidate the new player with a barrage of skills and AP/MP, you start with something small and you make your way to the top.

The community is also a good factor since majority of the community knows you can't be a better character yourself since it's hard if not impossible or. You need teammates to excel in this game. There are people who might give you keys for the dungeon and even do a dungeon run with you (simply because either they need to finish that Mercenary Quest, just for the tokens, or just for XP). There are also people who are really willing to give away equipments because they have no need for them (thank The Twelve he didn't know about the Runic Recycler). There are also ♥♥♥♥♥, however, who would slash-and-burn your plantation but ♥♥♥♥♥ are mostly limited to slashing-and-burning of plantations and nothing more.


Now let's go to the fun part: the bad part:


First of all, the quests. Sure, the quests do give you experience and items but there are some quests (especially level 3 mercenary quests) that are very unforgiving or requires you to have teammates even if that quest doesn't necessarily require you to finish a dungeon run (I'm looking at you, "Pizz'larvas Express"). But who am I to judge when it says that level 3 quests recommends you to have six teammates? But still, there are just some quests that are really down-right bugged that you cannot actually finish them.


Second, the professions mechanism. There are certain professions that are either unnecessary and/or exhaustive and these are usually the equipment-producing professions. You can get what you can craft from a specific equipment profession as a 16% chance or lower mob loot from the mobs which makes crafting redundant. What makes crafting exhaustive is that by the time you get the ingredients for a set, you would already have obtained 5 instances of every piece of the set as a mob loot. I'm so ♥♥♥♥♥♥ with the Zora Set; I could've gone to level 40 if I had not been blinded by the Zora Set and yet I'm still level 25. Also, Glow Tin Ore? 1% drop rate? Two instances of them for every piece? You've got to be kidding me. TL;DR Crafting equipments is not only unnecessary and/or exhaustive but also very uneconomical and impractical. This game needs a lot more balancing issues.


Third, the mobs. While the mobs sure are nice to battle to, there are just some mobs that have unreasonable stats or AI. Especially, ESPECIALLY that one mob in Kwismas World who does an attack that pushes you two cells backwards while he still has around 4 MP to move away from you. Isn't that just unfair? Also, those four distantly placed cocoons in Larventura. One level ~15 larva every turn. And you take two turns just to kill a single larva. And I'm already level 25, mind you, with a sidekick. And I'm still not counting Shin Larva.

Either that or I'm just a noob who doesn't have friends. Moving on...


Fourth. The overall game design. There are so many things flawed about this part that I had to put each issue in one sentence each; here goes nothing. So if one of the world's plants went extinct and nobody has a single seed, what happens then? How the characters are placed in the create-a-character-menu, how is a newb going to choose one that he will stick to once he chose it? My map should remember at least where my tin I mined from, my breaded fish I fished from, where my tree soils are, and where the crop fields are; where is that anti-frustration feature? Also, where is the auto-farm anti-frustration feature that has lower yield compared to manual farm? Why is it just now that I discovered the location of the Runic Recycler when I can find it in earlier point in time? Why does the general UI look so bloaty/ugly? Why can't I zoom in on my minimap? Why does the minimal look so blurry? Why does the whole area have to look so isometric that high pillar tiles can block my view during battle (and on tactical mode)? Why are there even high pillar tiles in the first place? Why are there so many misspellings and faulty grammatical constructions? Why can't I undo a battle move especially when I know that I misclicked that button?
I'm not sure about some of these but I know that in the back of my mind that there are more.



I'm pretty sure that I still have a lot more to say about this game but it's already 1:25 AM in my area and my eyes are droopy.

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.

THE BAD:
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!

I like the unique look of the game, the unusual character classes, and the turn-based combat.

I don't care for the open world system of advancement. With no specific quest line to follow, it leads to a lot of time spent searching for quests, or grinding to advance.

The world intrigues me enough to want to play it, but actually playing it feels like a chore when it's so hard to find quests.

So for me this game is a "no", but it does have a lot going for it. If what I've described above doesn't put you off, it's definitely worth checking out.

Not a review, but I just wanted to point that this is probably the most f2p game of the whole steam MMORPG library.

You will go to lvl 1 -> late game only depending in the hours you spend in, and you can't be better than someone just paying.

Paying of course will give you something (skins and furniture for your "house", and you can buy sidekicks, secondary chracters that you control).

Definetly, give it a chance. Any action though, slow combat sometimes.
