Thanks for the reply and it makes logical sense. If I ever actually play my Masq I always liked water and was originally going to go a mono build, but this seems very interesting and versatile. I shall have to consider it.

Sadida Specialty Tree (possibly fun change?) Kat's finally jumping on the bandwagon and has an idea for Tree.


Tree has gone through many changes. From originally granting invincibility with it's continually changing costs, till they finally decided to nix the single turn invincibility completely. Tree even used to nettle all our dolls, but that was nixed too (and don't get me started on the changes to nettle...).

We now have this tree that offers minor heals (even with 7mp) and minor resists for a Wakfu point. However even I still use tree just because if you cannot use your dolls, the only thing to spend your WP on is Tree. So why not right?

With Seeds and Tree being the only thing that Sadida's use Wakfu on is unique, as most other classes have some sort of nuke damage spell or some sort of specialty like Eni's Revive. Tree is our specialty, and boy, isn't it something, right? (Was there sarcasm there, I couldn't tell.)

I've been playing my little Sadidette since beta (well of course had to remake when game came out of beta, but she looks the same and has the same name...) and below is something I always wanted to see a Sadida do since seeing the animation (I have to also seriously stop funding things on kickstarter....).

(And added note for no reason, on Lone Sadida, while I see it's uses and even use it myself when not using dolls, I do find it to be poorly designed spell and it really should be reworked or changed.)


-------------------------------


Current Cost of Tree:
5ap 1wp => 1wp

Current Effect of Tree:
- Turns Sadida into a Tree (Tree is stabalized and gains +0.5% Resist per level of the Sadida)
- Ends Sadida's Turn
- Heals the Sadida +1 => +7.43 HP Chromatic per remaining MP.

At level 100, that's Sabalization with 50% resists and about and a 150hp heal with 500% in a mastery and 5mp. Not much I'd say, but better than nothing.

Now we can keep the name simple and just leave it as "Tree". Or we can call it something grand like "Sadida's Domain" (could sound better, but I'm tired...). Name change for below of course not the above.

Cost:
6ap 1wp => 2ap 1wp

Effect:
- Sadida creates 5 identical Trees. One at location and four each 4 spaces away in a line (no LoS).
- Tree no longer grants Resists.
- All Trees block Line of Sight.
- Sadida is Stabalized until the start of their following turn.
- Sadida will heal +1 => +15 HP Chromatic per MP.
- Casting this specialty will end the Sadida's Turn
- The Sadida resides in randomly in one of the 5 Trees. The Sadida will not know what Tree they are in and if they speak, the speech bubble will pop out randomly out of a Tree (may or may not be the one they are in).

- When a Tree is attacked, it will be destroyed.
If the Sadida is not in it, nothing more happens Each empty tree has 1 HP (not modifiable).
If the Sadida is in the Tree, they will take the damage like normal and be relieved. All other trees will shrivel up and disappear into the ground. Sadida is still Stabalized till the start of their turn.

- If the Sadida has not been found at the start of their turn they may choose a Tree to emerge from.



Ooookay, so I through a lot out there. Let me explain.

Sadida's are able to summon plants and even grow tree's. They are masters of nature and tied directly to the Tree of Life. Therefore I thought it appropriate for them (as their Wakfu Signature move) to be able to summon a forest of their own.

I got the idea from the animation

Spoiler: (highlight to show)
when near the end of the first season, Nox uses his Sadida minion.
This Sadida is able to merge in and out of trees. Essentially teleporting around and I thought, why cannot we do so too? (Thus the selecting which Tree to emerge from part at the end.)

Cost was increased even though the Resists were removed. This is because the enemy has to now play a guessing game with to which, where is the Sadida hiding? If they miss, they won't be dealing any damage, if they hit, it'll hurt like normal. The cost is also for the increased Healing, though this will only raise the Heal to double what it is currently at (so like in the example before, it would heal +150hp at 500% mastery and 5mp, now it would heal +300hp at 500% mastery and 5mp, this sounded like a fair amount for a WP costing spell and the increased cost).

Added risk of this spell is that it will block Allies LoS and they can hit the Trees/Sadida too. This is to cause the specialty to not be too overpowered. Though of course it would be nice if the Trees were immune to Ally attacks. I guess I'll leave that up to you guys.

Sadida will keep it's Stabalization even after revieled as they have "rooted" themselves to the ground by becoming one with the Trees they summoned. Thus even when found, they are still stuck in place.

Now one may ask, what happens if one of the spots where a Tree should summon is an obstacle/mob/ally/outside of map? I say that those Trees will just not summon. Thus it is important to think of positioning. The Trees do not need LoS to summon, there just cannot be anything in it's place.

Example:


Sadida A will be able to summon all 5 Trees.

Sadida B will not be able to summon two of their Trees as they are outside the map.


Finally, reasoning for for choosing a distance of 4 from the Sadida to summon the other Trees was because of AoE attacks. In this way, no more than 2 Trees could be destroyed at a time, and only if they had a Circle2 AoE. Thus making it better for an enemy to use low AP spells or hope they're lucky and hit the right one on the first try.


-----------------------------------


So again, yes, I know there are more pressing issues to fix with the Sadida than Tree (my poor poor dolls... Water Sadida Doll Summoner since beta, now at least have some heals, but that only helps so much), but so many others have made threads on how to fix dolls or change the air tree and the like. So I thought I'd try something different.

Thoughts?

=========================================================

NOTES ON MAX SPELL LEVELS


As far as how many spells you can max, it goes as follows:

Mono Element
- Able to max 4 spells in a single element. (Total of 4 maxed spells.)

Duo Element
- Able to max 3 spells in one element and 2 spells in a second element. (Total of 5 maxed spells.)

Tri Element
- Able to max 2 spells in all 3 elemental trees. (Total of 6 maxed spells.)


The above only works on maxing that many if you have EXACTLY zero levels in all other spells. This is not something, at lest that I know of, that any one will do as it is nice to have access to your other spells incase of need of one that say, helps with movement or positioning (thus not needing to be maxed but a level needed to use). Therefore, normally one of those total maxed spells will be a level short to be able to put a level in everything else.

=========================================================


On the topic of your Masq (which I think this is a wonderous build buy the way and decently detailed on the important parts), I have some questions about your specialties.

Specifically in post #42 where you list the order of specialties.

While I agree with most of them, I am curious about why you could pick Carnival as a specialty to level (even if it is second to last). Mainly because you've not leveled any other mask, so placing the Coward or Psychopath mask on a ally wouldn't do much and you wouldn't give someone else your Classic mask because you then wouldn't be able to wear it yourself (and as you've stated in your guide, you will be spending the majority of the time in this mask with your build).

Just wondering on your two cents on that subject.

Also thoughts on Dance of Death. While we are no wear near the cap, once there, if we are to be maxing out your spells, Dance of Death then will not be helping there as spells will not exceed the 200 cap. At that point would you suggest (yes again I know it's far off) not maxing spells and keeping them at 190 so that you have more spells that are higher level? and use Dance of Death when you need that extra burst, or would you still max those spells and only use Dance of Death when you use lower leveled spells (which doesn't seem like it would happen often).

2. I don't quite see how you waste more resource at all.

Well with the change, you only need exactly 50 of a resource to feed a pet to max level (time 50 days)

Before, if you say never got Fight XP once, a pet would need 358 of a resource to max it's level (time, minimum 90 days if you managed to feed them exactly every 6 hours, normally longer).


As for feeding a pet after it's maxed just so it doesn't loose 1hp every 3 days, that resource amount has not changed. Though if you filter through Nox16's post, you'll see this suggestion (which is what I do):

Let the pets die and keep Osa Powders on you. Then you don't need to carry any of those pets food. If you want to use the pet, feed it a single powder. Makes everything quite simple, especially since it only takes water and thistle to make the powders.

i really preferred the time stamps cause it let me feed some pets on the last day or a few hours before they take damage... i cant really do that now.
^ Exactly this.

I don't know how many people here are doing almanax right at server midnight, are you setting an alarm clock irl or what. I'm personally doing it when I have free time to play. So it could happen at the daytime or whenever I'm logging the char that needs some almanax bonus. The new pet timer is just really uncomfortable for me and I wanted to share my concern. This change couldn't be called "progress", but the opposite more likely.
Why would you need to feed your pet exactly at midnight? You can only feed the pet once a day, just like doing the almanax once a day. So that any time of the day work just the same as feed the pet at that time.

You can even feed the pet and do the almanax 1 min before the server midnight time, then do both again just as it changes you know. Which is why the Almanax count down is the same as when you need to feed your pets. The pets do still show you what day there were last fed as well, which lets simply shows you how close you're getting to that 3 day mark if you're really trying to wait that long.

For those who don't know, you can also type "/time" (no quotes) in the text box and see the server time.

Old totem was the same way for 2 years and no one saw it as overpowered for a....support class (and it costs WP). I really disagree with anyone thinking that it was overpowered.
Old totem was also easily destroyed by a single push, which most classes and bosses (and many mobs) can do.

The only change i would say the foggernaut support skills needs is some sort of buff to stasis in the passives which they dont really have. I mean only really foggernator out right buffs stasis and even then just lowers costs. Mother fogger is nice and gives a possible buff and nice none linear range. I just think stasis needs a bit of a buff in the passives or one that out rights helps them.
Agreed as well. Other than that, Foggers are surprizingly balanced, but yes, a passive that helps Stasis in some way or another would make this class much better. Then you have to think though on which Passive would be changed (or have an effect added to it).

On Fogginator, while it does lower the cost by 1 AP, of course it still has the down side of hurting the Fogger (quite a bit I might add too).

Motherfogger is the only real one I think that is for Stasis (yes, it has the Earth and Fire spell too).

The Almanax timer, as some have mentioned, is the feed your pet timer. If it is up saying you have XX:XX to do the Almanax, then it's time to feed the pet. Since the Pet feeding reset is the exact same time as the Almanax, instead of once every 24 hours. Which was a nice change.

In other words, no need really for an extra clock.


- Kat


*edit
Personally, I feed my pets when right as I do the Almanax, to keep it simple.

Hmm, wonder if I can find a good one.

On an unrelated note, the costume I would most want to see available is Queen Sheran Sharm's outfit (worn by Amalia at one point as well). It is absolutely gorgeous and would look perfect on my little Sadidette. You can even make it a Female/Male costume and have the King's outfit and crown for them men if they so please.

I have a Fogger as my main on my second account.

Reason I say Microbot and Groove are recommended is because I think they are worth it. Or else I wouldn't recommend them. I personally use them all the time to save MP (and it's fun just zipping around on rails).

When with my main party partner Kinifee, he's a Fire Cra and he uses his MP for a bunch of spells. Instead of zipping around myself, I play a bit more support with my Fogger in setting up rails for him to get around without having to use all his MP for positioning, or having to waste WP Beacon Sneaking.

Rails are of course situational, so it's up to you to decide when it would be a good idea to use them.


- Kat


*edit
(Microbot and Groove are one of the first things I max as I really enjoy them and find they help a bunch in adding some new tactics to fights.)

Well, if you read the abilities, I think it pretty much spells itself out, but let me go over it quickly.

Microbot
This spell allows you to place a single Microbot on the ground. At max level, these will have 4 charges (charges go down once a turn and every time they are hit, at 0 they are destroyed). Placing a Microbot in a straight line from each other with up to 3 spaces between them at max level (so range of 4 from the other) will create a Rail (more on that later). All players have 1 base control. Control is needed for any type of summons, Microbots being no different. 1 Microbot per 1 Control.

Groove
Simple part, gives the Fogger an extra +20 Dodge. On top of that, it boosts Microbots. Groove gives you +4 more charges to your Microbots (giving them a maximum of 8, which is alot of turns if they're not hit), increases Rail length by +2 (so 5 spaces between for a range of 6), and grants the Fogger +2 more control.

Motherfogger
While standing on a Microbot, a Fogger is able to summon a turret to ride called the Motherfogger. While on the Motherfogger, the Fogger will have +30% resists and deal +50% more Stasis damage if the target has matching resistances. Stasis spells normally can only be cast in a line, but on the Motherfogger, they can be cast at an angle (suuuper plus there). While on the Motherfogger, you cannot use your Fire or Earth spells, but only a specific Fire and Earth spell, these two spells will be the level of your highest Fire and Earth spell. Stasis spells will keep their level. The Motherfogger cannot normally move, except on Rails.

Rails
Rails allow for map control for the Fogger and HIS allies (yes, Foggers are all male no matter what ankama says). On a rail, it only costs 1 MP to move 3 spaces. This works for the Fogger itself, the Fogger while on the normally immoble Motherfogger and all the Fogger's party members. To use rails, you really need both Microbot and Groove specialties maxed (and possibly some more control from gear to put out more than 3 microbots).



As you can see, Microbot and Groove go hand in hand and is recommended for ALL Foggers to get these. Motherfogger however is really more of a Stasis branch thing. If you use Stasis, then it is a really nice ability to have, if you don't you Stasis, it's not really needed.

AP, MP and Range are the best ones to stat, but the amount depends on the spells and combo's you want to use (and what you plan on getting out of your gear).

Gear you need to look at are General Damage sets. As Stasis builds from the average of all 4 of the elements (not 3). So any General Damage sets work. As you get higher in levels, you will get ones that give you AP and MP too, along with resists.

Since you didn't state a level, it's hard to help on exact gear, but Vampyro is a classic many use. The crafted sets Apprentice, Initiate and Sage are also very good and some of the best, but take a loooot of mats to collect and need a high to maxed out crafter to make.

Multimen are useless anyway, their PP doesn't stack through gear, they are so much weaker than a real player and they don't count well with Relic drops. oh and they can't be used in UB's and OH YEAH they use extra keys since Ankama is horrible at planning things ahead, so in my opinion I just use MM's as live bait.

Well, that's just a bald face lie that Sidekicks are useless.

Sidekicks/Multimen (Spell/Stat page + Player Class Comparisons)

This was something simple I wrote up a long while ago.

Yes, I got lazy and didn't finish covering Lumino and now there is Protoflex, but if you take the time to read it, it shows you that everything about the Sidekicks is comparable to Player characters. From stats to attack power of their spells and I have all the comparisons you'd need for proof.

As mentioned:

Dofus
1. One Sidekick per Character.
2. They help with PP locks, but cannot drop anything.
3. Levels scale with the player.

Wakfu
1. Two Sidekicks per Character
2. They help with PP locks and drop items for players
3. Need to be leveled, but gain XP at 120% the rate of the Player. Meaning they will always be the same level if you got one at the start, and takes little time for a Sidekick to catch up in level.
4. Are attached to your account so any of your characters can use, and you can unlink them (losing 30% of their XP) if you want to sell them.


- They do not gain Wis, PP, and Kit Skill.
- They cannot be used in Ultimate Boss fights.

You technically don't even need to spend a single Ogrine to get one if you buy one off the markets, though even then, Ankama has already just recently had a sale on the Multimen Sidekicks.

If you are even more Ogrine/Kama concious, you can use the Astrub Knight (free in game) and just use the FREE rotated Sidekick of the week. And just think, all the levels you put into a sidekick when it was free, when you finally do get that sidekick, they keep those levels you put into it.



Only difference between a sidekick and a character is that a sidekick is set in their ways. While a character has multiple spell trees to choose from, but their power is the same (again, look at the comparison linked above).

Sidekick
- Set Stats.
- Set Spells.
- Spells however spells are always maxed and match the Sidekicks level.
- Cannot be used in Ultimate Boss fights.
- Auto revives and heals to max HP after every fight.
- Gains 120% of the XP player is currently getting, meaning fight content the player is currently at for easy power leveling.
- SINGLE purchase price that can be done with cash or kama.

Character
- Choose your own spell stats.
- Choose your own spell path.
- Need to manage spell levels and restat every so often to make sure they levels are the way you want.
- Can do all content.
- Can die, needs to be revived and healed with ken-ko's and bread.
- Needs to fight things it's own level for best XP, so high level characters need to drop down to fight lower level mobs to help new characters level.
- Need to pay the MONTHLY fee to use, if it runs out cannot use, cash only, no kama.

Both
- Either way you need to gear your Second Account, or Sidekick. So complaining on needing to gear them is kind of moot as you'd have to do that either way.



Like you said before, you can use them as live bait. They can be used as just help for loot drops. But if you take the time to gear them as well, they are just as good as any other character. If you think other wise, please show me why, instead of just posting an opinion. Opinions are good and all, but in the end, they are just that, an opinion, not a fact.
