Beta Server Update

By [Sabi] - ADMINISTRATOR - 2014-06-13 11:00
Devtracker News
The coming months will provide a lot of new content! The Divine Dimensions of course, but not just that... And since the majority of the new content are some of the most requested features, you may start expecting them as well!


Starting Friday, June 13th, we are offering you to test the full Srambad dimension, it's Boss in it's Hardcore version and the addition of a minimum level required to enter a dungeon.

But especially we allow you to get your hands on previews of the substantial advances that may well emerge in the future in WAKFU:
 
  • Reconnecting in combat: you're not dreaming! Our developers have worked hard to develop a first draft of this functionality and oh so requested feature!
  • Inter-character account chest: this is another feature that has caused much ink, and you will finally be able to test it.
  • First step towards the mounts: YES! the mounts!! You will be able to ride the World of Twelve on their back... or almost.

To connect to the Beta server, just make sure to download and install one of these versions of the Updater:
You will then be able to access the Beta server normally via your login and password as usual. 

All of your characters will be imported with your Sidekick to the Beta server as they were on Thursday 22/05 at 9:59 PM GMT / 5:59 PM EST / 2:59 PST. 

Attention: Please note that this server does not give you access to the interface gift, or the Boutique, or to Krosmaster and that it is reserved to our subscribed players.

Also note that changes to your characters on the Beta server will not be reflected on your original server. In addition, since it is a Beta server, all the content is to be noted as being under development, we may have to restart/update it at any time

Please keep in mind that the contents of this server is subject to change and further balancing, and doesn't necessarily reflect the final quality of the content present in-game.

Finally, we invite you to share with us any feedback on unique topics that will be created for this purpose with more infromation, in the forum category "Beta Server". We also invite you to report the various bugs that you may find here (while of course using the usual bug report template). We will also keep you updated on the time of opening of the Beta server.

Thank you in advance for your participation and happy testing!
First Ankama intervention
Hi guys,

It makes us very happy to see your reaction regarding this content that the team has been working hard on.

We truly wanted to be able to offer you to test them once they were ready to do so, which is why it took some time to get them ready as some of them are truly changing a lot of things for Wakfu.

Please make sure to get your feedback into the threads created for that purpose in the Beta server forum so that I can also share these with the team.smile

Element|2014-06-13 17:43:54This is annoying me now... can't test the Beta because the Mac OSx version "Doesn't Exist" please provide a file in the link. Ty.
This is the proper link. Ankama keeps using the broken link with the '"' symbol at the end :p

Hi Element!

Thank you FajneCycki for helping Element.

For some reason the thread wouldn't update with it but it has been fixed during the weekend.

Sometime it is good to do a little"/?refreshcache" at the end of a link to display the updated content, so I hope it all now works good for you.
Kikuihimonji|2014-06-13 18:51:57Account shared chest? Wow finally we will be able to trade with our alts without troubles! I just wonder how will it work for people who have their chests full on all characters... item wipe? Rollback then? Or would that be another slot in chest? Or different chest? Curious.

Hi Kikuihimonji!

If the chest becomes full, there will be an option to purchase an extension from the Boutique, but the goal isn't to make it unuseful unless buying that extension. We will make sure that the amount of slots in the chest will be interesting enough for the players to enjoy using it as it will be a lot quicker to do so than using a Haven bag, and it can be used everywhere. Azael is interested into the 14 slots ideas as it seems to be a good base to think about. Also once the extension is used on the chest, this will not be reversible.

This new feature will be available to subscribers only, possibly starting July (but may be moved depending on the work/needs to improve it) but overall we are looking pretty good. You may see some changes in the amount of slots in Beta soon.

If your account goes from subscribed to non-subscribed, it will no longer be possible to use the chest to transfer items or Kamas but you will still have access to the chest to take back the Kamas or items from it.
taborlinn|2014-06-14 16:36:10sram revamp ?

Hi Taborlian!

The Sram revamp is still on hold as we are not quite yet satisfied with the proposed revamp.
Jannet-fenix|2014-06-16 13:15:35It all seems cool, but I won't be able to enjoy it without things I've been working so hard for past years. WORK ON THE SUPPORT WOULD YOU?

Hi Jannet!

we are working on improving the team to better assist you and the community, you should be receiving a reply very soon on your ticket and be on the way to a resolution. Thank you for all of your patience and I apologize for the delay again.

Did you just say mounts

I swear to god you better not be pulling a todd howard on me I might literally cry
Why were these things all kept secret for so long!
If they all work well, you'll make a lot of people happy.
I dont think you hear this often, but nice work, Ankama smile

The minimum level on dungeons seems like a good counter to power-leveling, will this result in better exp yields in 2-character group combat? (its probably the most popular means of playing - friends / partners / solo multiaccounting)
Soundtrack8|2014-06-13 12:19:41Why were these things all kept secret for so long!

Because if you fill in the else statement for this:
Soundtrack8|2014-06-13 12:19:41If they all work well, you'll make a lot of people happy.

you get the answer.

We all are well aware of this community and its complaining style.
Not saying I never did it like that. (I started going crazy twice when my ticket was ignored for over a few months (3 and 6 if I recall correctly)). Just saying they made a smart choice.
nice features looking forward to test them smile
This looks amazing and I hope all goes well for the testers to give us good news when they try them out. Makes me almost want to play in the beta server, but I need to work on my main more... only 125, must level to play new content... muuust.....

Keep up the good work.

reconnect after 3 years
good news
Wow after long time i can feel happiness about wakfu again. smile
Finally you did it, YOU ARE AWESOME!! biggrin

But i must say i am still waiting good news about gemlins, golden croums and my lost pets too. wink

Oh really developers, you are awesomeee this time!

Anyone know what is first mount? And do they have their own slot? or just pet slot? smile 
The first mount is a dragoturkey :p
FajneCycki|2014-06-13 14:44:32The first mount is a dragoturkey :p
How can we have them? biggrin
And if mounts are coming drago-express system should change happy
Maybe pandora can build mini-portals for us smile 
Well, I posted information about that mount 3 weeks ago, here :p At this point there are 3:
Dragodinde Sauvage - +60 HP +30% Movement Speed
DragAudi TT - +60 HP +60% Movement Speed
Mac'Drago Laren - +60 HP +100% Movement Speed
so those are pet substitutes?

and what is the ridiculous +xx hp on them? as if you will use them in-fight with these stats
Yes, they follow you like pets and they take the pet slot. The difference is that you can mount them.
While the update is nice although some aspect are well over due. Why am I only able to stat only 1 mp and 1ap without the option of stating another? The character growth is becoming more and more linear soon we will be all using the same builds, make it so we can invest 3 range if we wish 2ap 2mp is ok as it is i guess.!
This sounds very good. Almost enough to calm my anger over support.

Reconnection system is much needed and overdue. Very awesome.
The account chest is another very helpful sounding feature.
Mounts? Well I am interested in having mounts, but I swear something was said about them not being touched this year.

I really hope Beta testers work out the kinks and we can have these new features soon (the first especially). Perhaps this will be the time I test it out myself.

I would like to say that I hope bugs will be a huge focus for the team going forward. I would rather wait on content and have a functioning game. The reconnection system I applaud very much though. A lot of bugs and issues cause the disconnect and this is a step in the right direction for a more fluid and less frustrating experience. Thank you for addressing this issue.

LioVamp|2014-06-13 15:33:05so those are pet substitutes?

and what is the ridiculous +xx hp on them? as if you will use them in-fight with these stats

It sounds like you would wear them while traveling, not in battle.
I can only assume the hp would be so when you switch back to pet and you regenerated health, you'll be at full life. Or it has something to do with their usage like powder/pet food?
I don't know how they work. Oh now I'm just too curious. To beta!
Reconnecting in combat: you're not dreaming! Our developers have worked hard to develop a first draft of this functionality and oh so requested feature!
Inter-character account chest: this is another feature that has caused much ink, and you will finally be able to test it.
First step towards the mounts: YES! the mounts!! You will be able to ride the World of Twelve on their back... or almost.

WOW!!! Ok, if half of this functionalities are working, I retire everything bad I ever said about Ankama. I know, it's not for now but, it's on test already... and I am surprised as ***** ! Congratulation Ankama developers! Nice work!

OMG RECONNECT IN COMBAT? I SEE IT GOOD?
