This is one of the best MMO RPG games I have ever played. It is not one of those free games you download and then use all your money to actually have fun on it. It is fun for both free-to-plays and people who buy stuff for the game. I love the character selection. I was so curious I had tried all the classes. I love the game. I especially love the show. Anyone who has, or even hasn't played the game should go and watch Wakfu on Netflix or something (I suggest watching it in subtitles) . It can help understand reasons for updates in the game like the Eliatropes that were just put in. This game is just loads of fun. Very fun to play around with friends. Just download it and you will have no regrets.

Wakfu is a gem. The game is amazing but its not for everyone. The game play is turned base so by nature it is slow. The game is grindy as a korean mmorpg so western players may find it unbearable. The graphics is cartoony so that also rules out the people who like realistic graphics.

For me who likes to consider himself a hardcore mmorpg player finds this game amazing, you gotta use your brain, its no hack and slash, the grind is rewarding and also as a dofus player, this was perfect.

7/10, I would have given it a 10/10 but its riddled with unbalanced classes which made pvp terrible, and as a pvper, thats bad.

Wakfu is...an experience. I am still going through my experience but from what I've played of it so far I can give a fair and detailed review of it. I will cover it in four sections; tutorial, gameplay, combat and community. I would also like to mention that I used to pay for and play this game when it was still in open beta about four to five years ago.

Tutorial:
The tutorial for Wakfu reminds me very much of the character actors at Didney Worl; they never break character. Your UI can give you all the information you need to break the fourth wall but when it comes time to learn from an NPC they will talk to you, the player, as if you are your character. The NPCs outside of the tutorial follow suit to this.

Ankama has made one class exclusively for the tutorial which, in my mind seems rather pointless. Back in beta the reason I bothered going through the tutorial areas was so I could get a proper feel for my actual class before I committed to playing it. That said, you can opt to skip the tutorial. I wouldn't advise that if you are a brand spanking new player.

Gameplay:
Wakfu is what most people call a grindfest, but there is reason behind it I like to think. Monsters will drop items that are guaranteed to end up being used for something, no matter the level. Gear can either be combined into sets to be sold, worn or even ground into powder which can be refined into runes to improve the gear you use.

Killing mobs and running quests aren't the only thing you can do in this game, you may also pick up professions. All of them in fact, conveniently located in the starter area known as Astrub. With this in mind a lot of players tend to lean towards one or the other based on their mood at the time. I personally rarely fight and would rather just go farm wheat fields.

Combat:
The combat in Wakfu is unique, something I've never seen in an MMORPG. Ever played Final Fantasy Tactics? This is it. You (and your teammates if you brought any) as well as monsters have a set initiative score, which is a stat you can increase. Those with higher initiative go first and you follow along a grid-based system to fight your enemies. Your character has access to a plethera of passive abilities (able to swap them out between battles on the fly as you unlock them), class-specific utility skills and three skill trees, each one has an element (meaning that you will have access to three of the four elements, I advise you to look through them when you make your character even if you haven't unlocked them).

The player versus player content this game provides comes in some different ways, but ultimately ends up the exact same. There are four nations that you may pick from to be your home upon reaching level 15, with the option to join an outlaw nation at level 30... I wouldn't recommend this though and some people get confused. Let me break this down real quick, if you play this game and hit level 30 you'll recieve a quest called "Riktus for a Day." Do not complete this quest, you will automatically join the outlaw nation that only has one outpost in the ocean and are free game for anyone wherever you go. Aside from this, at level 30 you can opt to become a guard of your nation, sworn to protect the land from Riktus, eco-terrorists (will cover this in another section) and PKers.

Another feature to note for combat are sidekicks. They are NPCs that can act as party members you control. They aren't as powerful or versatile as players but they get the job done when you need it. Part of the beginner quest is going through a dungeon, rewarding you at the end with an Astrub Knight. This is the only sidekick you get for free, with the addition of the free trial sidekick. Out of Ankama's list of sidekicks, one is chosen every so often as a free trial. Kind of a try before you buy sort of thing, this gives you the option of not only playing as yourself and the Astrub Knight, but a third teammate once every...I wanna say three weeks but I honestly never noticed. These guys don't offer what other players can provide and you can easily solo your way the entire game with a little patience, the sidekicks only offer you some help along the way.

Overall the PvP in this game is pretty fun so long as you don't get stacked against someone much higher level than you.

Community:
As far as I've seen, pretty dead. I wish I could say this, but in the town hubs (Astrub and nation outposts) there are people everywhere. The further out you go you see less players though, most of them are hidden in small haven bags (which act as a portable home and player shop) either afk selling their wares or just plain afk. That said, if you're looking at only the game's point of view then you are sadly missing out, the wiki for this game is regularly updated and the forums always has people poking their heads in to say hello. That said, if you plan to play this game for a while then get into a guild ASAP, I suggest you head over to the forums to find one to your liking.

Before I finish, I want to add that this game does have a cash shop. Is it pay to win? Not really, most of the things you can buy are either cosmetic or do really minor things. You can buy weapons but they don't compare to the gear you can find and make. You may also buy extra sidekicks which can help out, but aside from your Astrub Knight you have access to a different free trial sidekick every once in a while.

Overall:
Steam is asking me if I recommend this game and do I? I'm a little torn, but yes I do. This is a very fun game with combat mechanics that require you to actually think when things don't go as planned. The community is there and very friendly but only if you take the time to actually look for them. When you're feeling bored of grinding mobs, go grind resources! Its tedious but addicting after a while.

TL;DR
Game is fun, try it out. RTFR.

Could be good but ankama is stupid enough to ruin it with every new patch. After the dupe of relics and kama i dont think this game is even worth to play. 3000+hrs of gameplay now i feel like all of it was wasted.5/10

This game has one of the best turn based combat I've ever played. All playable classes have 20 spells and 5 passives you can skill and level up, allowing you to build it any way you want to suit your tastes. There is a lot of ennemies and they all feel unique.

But that's pretty much it. There is no drive to level up, very few quests beside some for the intro, some milestones and the dailies. That's enough for me but it makes it hard to get friends into the game.

Also, the politics, crafting and environnement things seem like useless or almost useless gimmicks to me.

On top of that, the game have a lot of issues. The Steam achievements are not working (and at this point, I doubt they ever will). When my friend created an account, he got locked into a different region than mine and he gave up on the game.

Give me a propper coop RPG with those classes and ennemies and I would buy it any time.
