I, among many people, left dofus for a reason. I wholly agree that making another dofus and calling it wakfu is not going to be recieved well by people that left dofus.
Wakfu however is quite different to dofus and I like the differences a lot, as do many people (as emphasised by the reaction to this topic).
There is no doubt in my mind that broadening the content related to the gemlin would create a much stronger relationship between the player and the game, having raised your character along with your gemlin throughout the game.
Again, there is no doubt in my mind that a large factor to the introduction of other pets to wakfu was simply to entice players into purchasing subscriptions seeing as its relatively timeconsuming and difficult to go about getting pets in other ways, but why lose out on the incredibly popular and UNIUE gemlin idea that has already been implemented into the game. Trust me, the uniqueness means a lot to the gamer.
How about you kill two birds with one stone here by scrapping pets. Hear me out, this can be done by:
-Instead of introducing different pets, introduce upgrades to the gemlin that change the stat bonuses it gives.
-How? Give the gemlin the ability to take on different shapes/forms (that could be obtained the same way one would obtain pets, subscriptions, dungeons etc) that give different TYPES of stat bonuses.
[like transforming the gemlin to take on another form - by doing this the player would create a stronger bond with their original pet (and game), and instead of being frustrated the dont have a bow meow pet or gobball pet, they would eagerly work towards getting a transformation or 'upgrade' to their already beloved pet].
This is my opinion in how to make Wakfu a better game/ a game more people would enjoy more. If you agree, cool, if not, ok, peace
EDIT- assuming youve decided on introducing the pets - as it stands the gemlin will be seen as a useless uninteresting unspecialised pet and people will wonder why you've even bothered putting that in the game.. and god forbid they think the reason for that is solely for you to make money off of them.. that might take the edge off the unique game they think you've created for them.
