Last time I've played Wakfu was two years ago when it was in beta phase on Ankama's international servers. I immediately liked the game despite it's flaws in terms of repetitiveness and lack of content, but then again I liked original Korean MMORPGs with their grind and farming.
Wakfu charmed me with it's silly animations and colorful art-style, an interesting take on classes and ofcourse a wast crafting and gathering system with an added twist in form of an ecology system.
However in the end it wasn't enough to get me subscribing. The resolution quality is very low and I need eye candy even though I'd rarely stop to admire the scenery. Plus it's over the top grindy! Let's be honest here, this day and age only a very few MMOs can get away with charging a monthly subscription AND bein

It started during Governor Zent's reign. He had made buddy-buddy with the nation of Bonta's Vice Governor Freya. I don't know what her grievances were but she decided she was fed up with her government and did something that's never been done before in wakfu. An act of treason so devastating that i have no idea how she didn't forsee a war in the future.
First, she declared war on my nation, Amakna during the middle of the night. One of the things she can do as a government member is move money from the treasury around to the nation's territories to buy challenges and change weather etc. She can't touch the money directly. As soon as she declaContinue Reading

Wakfu is going to be turning gold soon, so for those of you who wanted to try it out, this may be your last chance to try the beta. For those of you who never heard of it, it is the successor or I guess the better term is sequel to Dofus, a tactical RPG which had you playing on a grid with turn based combat. Dofus is still out and about, but Wakfu is making a bit more headway at the moment.
The game is fairly fun in the regard that yes, it is a tactical RPG mmo, but it also has an ecosystem and government system in place as well, which adds a bit of depth to the game. The classes are also fun since while in essence they're based off of existed classes in other games, it in itself is different enough to make the classes their own.
Besides the game being fairly fun anContinue Reading
Wakfu online a game by Ankama is a strategy MMORPG which is a close cousin of Dofus online.
I must admit that I haven't played Dofus yet so I will not compare the two, but from what I've read they are very similar.
The first impression I got after running the game for the first time was that it's quality made. Graphics are top-notch for a game of its size and the menus are very well placed and built. Overall it's a very pretty game, easy on the eyes.
The music and sounds are another thing I just have to point out. It feels like they've put a lot of effort into the sound aspect of the game and it payed off as the music is well themed with the game.
The combat in the game flows very well and is a bit challenging at times, which is always welcome even at lower levels. Combat is turnContinue Reading
I was getting a team together for conducting some Wakfu LP's and guides for the NA Nox launch this coming February 29th. I have a crew of 3 already and need more. We ideally would have one person to represent the best of each class that would assist watchers in understanding class mechanics, builds and utilization.
If you are interested in joining the team please Private Message me with the following information:
Your reserved In Game Name, that you will be using when you start on the 29th.
What class you would prefer to main.
What classes you would enjoy as alternates that you are both knowledgeable of and familiar with.
I will keep an eye here and post updates in the comments as the list fills up. I look forward to having a great time with you all online soon :3
The tactical MMORPG Wakfu is set to release February 29th, 2012. I'm pretty interested in this release because it has a tactics RPG combat system as well as open PvP and a player government system. Essentially a sandbox game, players can destroy or repair the ecosystem through the addition or removal of plants and animals. Players can also run for Governor, who is responsible for law and politics between the 4 nations. For the more daring, you can become a guard or a soldier which has bonus damage against outlaw players or in territory fights. The game is F2P with a $6 subscription fee to access premium content. Additionally, there is a cosmetic cash shop, which in my opinion, should not exist because of the subscription fee. WaContinue Reading
Brakmar is a very dangerous nation, whether you're a citizen of it or visiting it. But it's not the monsters that you have to be careful of. It's the players! In the World of Twelve, Brakmar functions as the pvp capital. If someone aggresses you, don't expect help. Join a guild or die. Of course this is part of the charm! If you're a pvp nut, why would you pick any other nation to join? Where else can you see a player killed by their own nation's government and shrug it off like "Oh that's just Brakmar." ?
The nastiness isn't just in pvp though. It's a dark and dusty nation and the citizens share their land with a volcano. There are bones and tombstones everywhere and all houses have blood splatters on them. There's even blood leaking out of stone in a few places! The monsterContinue Reading

Hi and welcome to my newest Wakfu character guide. This time we'll have a look at an assassin-type character, Sram. A fun note, like a lot of Ankama's made up names, this one comes from Mars, but backwards. It could be either a planet Mars or a french word for a month of March. Attention, please read all of this guide before starting playing!
Like in my Cra guide, I will mainly focus on strategies I used while leveling up. By the way, Ankama recently did a character wipe and will do one as well before game's official release in February (source: Inside Ankama On Air - Episode 14). This could also mean that Sram's skills and stats could be changed in the future.
After logging in and going through character creation, you start off in Incarnam, the startContinue Reading
