It's gameplay is a nice niche in the MMO games that I very much enjoyed. Community isn't as active as it used to be. If you can find a group, the games a lot of fun.

Despite the reviews, I decided to try this game.
Looks allright, music is fine, but I didn't much care for the gameplay.
There are several attacks you can do, and hovering over them with the mouse shows what they do. But that's not a short line of text telling me how much damage they do, no, it's a 12 page monstrosity full of abbreviations I don't recognize with tons of numbers that mean really nothing to me. Also the numbers aren't correct, an attack that is supposed to do 6 damage just does 3, and other mistakes like that.
Some items in the terrain 'guard' you, because they form a barrier between you and an enemy, which means that you can't attack because there's something in the way, but also the other way around, the tutorial tells you you're safe there yourself as well.
Except that's not true. It's true that my attack can't reach the enemy, but the enemy still beats my *** up.
I think the attack 'system' is way too complicated. They've tried to come up with something unique, well, it is, but not in a good way.

This game did and still has potential, however, a player driven economy and eco-system does not work well with low population servers. The only server with high population are the French servers.

The level-200(cap) players are bored and the new players have no one to run dungeons with. The level and content gap between them is so hugh that most players end up quiting.

The game is however free to play and definitely worth trying but not worth investing money in.

So, I've played Wakfu for 2500 hours since open beta almost 6 years ago and i recommend this game.
I find this MMORPG very fun to play although it does has its downsides to. So here are some pros and cons:

Pros:
- Its realy fun to play if you are the strategic kinda type and like to take your time (Turn-based)
- The Community in-game is realy friendly and almost always helpfull since pvp isnt a big or esential part of the game.
- Theres lots of diffrent quests to do, Profesions to be leveled, Dungeons to run, people to hang out with, collectibles to be found and tons of other stuff.
- Lots of different character classes to choose from for your own playstyle (right now its about 18 (both male and female))

Cons:
- Wakfu has its fair share of bugs, these are mostly minor but still iritating (also steam achievements seemed to progress slower or not at all when they should be (this is on 22-07-2016).
- It has a lack of tutorials, hints do apear but theres nothing to solid, although there are lots of Guilds in Astrub (main beginners region) that are always looking for new members and are willing to help out.
- All the things thrown at you can be pretty overwhelming at first, but you probably know a lot more around lvl 50 (can be achieved in less then 5 hours if power leveld so depends how u look at it)

I WONT recommend this game for people that can't get along with others very well and are the leeroy jenkins kinda type.
I DO recommend this game if you are looking for something for the long run with lots of stuff to do, friends to be made, and strategic fun the be had.

Pros:
-17 classes that feel 100% unique
-Meaningful choices for leveling up
-Fantastic lore that leaves much to investigate
-Amazing combat system
-Anime style
Cons:
-Devs don't speak English
-Game has been stagnant for years
-Things are constantly erased/replaced almost randomly
-Continually dying playerbase
-Highest populated servers (french) are locked from other countries
-Can be buggy

I've only clocked 131 hours on Steam, but I played for years on the normal client, and I've been on/off alpha/beta testing this game since 2006. I'll go into detail as to why I think this game is good and why I think the devs killed it years ago and are just milking what's left.

Pro:

The game is amazing. Period. If you like Fire Emblem or Tactics Ogre, this is the game for you. The characters are a bit cartoonish and anime-esque, but that just adds to the fun. The character designs are relatively unique and you feel a serious sense of accomplishment when you finally get the awesome-looking gear you want. You can choose out of 17 classes and, believe me, each one feels so dramatically different than the next that you'll be begging for the ability to just play them all at once.

When you level up, you notice it. You'll constantly debate leveling up one stat or another to benefit you more. What's more, you have 15 elemental spells to choose from. You can be a single element, duo element, or tri elemental as you pick and choose your favorite spell tree(s). The game is less about grinding out levels to finally unlock a spell and more about slowly learning how to play the game, then unlocking all of your spells and choosing from there.

The combat is spectacular. Unlike most turn-based strategy games, you have to constantly consider your position to the enemy's, even once you're engaged in melee. The myriad of movement and area damage can make your whole team wipe in two turns if you're not careful. Because it's a MMO, as well, you can simply out-level the enemies and go back to wreck their faces. The choice is yours. This isn't a "plan to whittle them down with ranged fire then melee them" like most other turn-based games, either. If you want to get into a boss' face, get into their face. They might have a wreck-all spell that turns you to mush, but most tank classes have something they can do to prevent it for a turn or two.

The lore is spectacular. It leaves a lot to find and compile, but it's there (or was when I was last active). Each bit and piece you may find tells a small bit about the history of events going on. From there, imagination takes hold and you can create your perspective of the world.

It's an anime-styled game. The women are busty and the hips are extremely wide. The graphics are a little cartoony, but the subtle vulgarity and brutality make up for it. It is really one of those games that you can let your kids play while still enjoying it yourself.

Cons:

The devs... Don't get me started on Ankama. They are, by far, the worst company I have ever dealt with. Their first priority is to appease the French playerbase, period. They do not care what the English-speaking players have to say. Your opinion will be moot if you do not speak French. I've played in several of the game's alphas/betas, and they ignored the English speakers like myself through and through. Things that were just added to the game last year I had been talking about since 2008, which is just sad and annoying to watch.

The game was running off of promise of content to the level cap. The ideal level cap being 200, just like in the previous game, Dofus. The problem? The level cap has been hit. The content now will satisfy people to that level cap, and nothing more. The game is slowly churning out meaningless updates that give little/no substantial changes that were promised years ago. It's more or less stagnant, even though they are still adding bits of content.

There were more systems in place when the game was released. There were even more before that. Things were added and removed because the developers didn't want to un-bug them. Governors, for instance, were elected and managed all things in the nation from the tax rates to the laws, given options in the dozens on what is legal/illegal, as well as challenges in each area, which were small tasks you could compete against other players to get unique gear. The government positions, now, however, are almost aesthetic. They can make some things illegal to do, but it's almost insulting and redundent on how they can manage it.

The player base is constantly dying then picking up again once something new comes out. Honestly, the game would be very nice if more people would play it. But, sadly, it goes through ups and downs, with the downs being extremely, extremely down. Finding someone to do something with that's not end-game or very early on is difficult and hording friends so you can play with them is common-place.

This goes back to the devs again. They locked the two French servers to anyone not in France. It didn't used to be, but there were a lot of issues with arabian players spamming the chat. It's understandable, but the population on either of those servers is almost always higher than every other server combined.

There are bugs in the game. Some of them are game-breaking. Most of them are annoying at best. If you run a decent system and don't try to push the limits on what you can do in the game, you will run this game almost entirely bug-free. These bugs, however, have been present for years and will likely continue forevermore.


All in all, I can't recommend this game to anyone. It might be worth a try if you like Fire Emblem or Tactics Ogre, but the developers killed it years ago. I want to like this game, I really do, but I can't. It's a grind fest once you hit level 100, for anything from gear to experience. The redundency is constant and unforgiving after a certain point. The most fun I've had is playing this game at the lower levels with people, but after a certain point it just becomes tedious and annoying. They will try to milk money from you. I will tell you now don't do it. It's not worth it.

If this still appeals to you, then go ahead. Don't say I didn't warn you though.

In one word: obsolete.

As you can tell from my hours played, I used to play this game. A lot. And this is only the hours logged on this character on steam, I had probably double this overall. However, I haven't touched this game in over a year. It runs on an obsolete version of java and the creators show no real intentions on updating it anytime soon. When I first started, it was a very vibrant game, full of excitement and fun. However, like so many others have commented, it's not what it used to be. The fighting system has been revamped over and over, so much so that it's just not fun to learn a new system every three months. It's not fun to deal with terrible support and a system that barely scrapes by.
It's a shame, because this game used to be amazing. The music for this game is incredible, to this day I still go back and look up my favorite songs and listen to them on youtube. Like everyone else has said, the creators have pushed themselves into a corner by alienating the fanbase by removing exciting features, putting crap into the game, and punishing players for the actions of the few.

I wish I could recommend this game, I really do. There was a time when I could; that time is gone. This game is on the downhill slope, which is sad considering where it has fallen from.

That being said, if you want to give it a try, go for it. It's free and you can always use this as a time sink. But this game had its glory days, and those days are passed.

Lots of great things in this game, but sadly I can not recommend it to others. This is from the perspective of a F2P player, I have not spent a penny on this game.

Pros-

17 unique classes

Great combat system (tactical but not overwhelming)

Crafting and gathering professions feel rewarding

Ecosystem changes based on what you plant and what you cut down or kill

Guilds are great (have buyable bonuses, haven worlds which are like a base for the guild players)

Art style is different from all other MMOs that I've seen

Many special mechanics for different mobs and dungeons

Beginning of game is rather fun

Cons-

Due to cheaters market prices are ridiculously inflated

Grinding is very tedius. To get a guaranteed relic you have to run a 1-2 hour dungeon 200 times if you are F2P, 100 if you have purchased a booster pack.

With the "Heros Update" people can now play as 3 characters at once. This means less people getting together for a dungeon group (dungeon groups are 6 people). In my opinion this is what killed the game. Before you would gather at temple and shout out "Looking for group _____ dungeon", or "Looking for 2 more ______ dungeon". People dont want others running dungeons with them because it is much easier to just duo it with your friend who also has 3 characters. Oh, and you need a booster pack to use more then one character at a time

Very few new people are joining, 95% of people are levels 175-200. You want to run lower level dungeons, good luck finding a group.

PVP is very unbalanced and you can be attacked even when you turn your "wings" down. (if you have wings up, this means you want to fight. Wings down means you dont, but some greifers will attack you anyway)

You will not see 90% of the low level areas because you are trying to rush to max level, where everyone else is

Many people are leaving the game. Guilds are being abandoned, and even some of the most popular ones are made up of 3-4 people with alternate accounts (many have 6 different accounts to play as a full team)


Extra: Back when the game was released on steam there was a huge flood of new players. The only reason I was able to stick around this game for so long is because of this. I found some buddies, we made a guild and played together. Early levels were great, but after level 120ish things became very grindy. My buddies left, but I kept playing. Now, I have also quit playing. I stopped at lvl 172, and the current level cap was 175 (has now been raised to 200). I saw end game content, and it was just do this 2 hour dungeon 100-200 times, maybe less if you got a lucky drop (.01%)


TL;DR: Has some great features I wish other MMOs would use, but due to immense repetetive grinding, a dying player base, and nothing to due once you reach end game, I can't recommend this game.

Continuously plagued by stupid issues.

Running a beast of a system, randomly stuttering and lag all over, menu's sluggish to open. Game client uses it's own 32 bit Java and ignores all options on the launcher. <10mins and the lags back from a fresh restart.
Same issues that were in early beta, reported en-masse and again, completely shunted under the carpet and ignored by Ankama.

This... is just painful to play if your expecting a plug and play game.
