Revamping Incarnam and Astrub
2013-09-20 11:00 By [Troyle] 96


Incarnam and Astrub get a makeover to better welcome all the newcomers that will be joining us starting from October 1st!
By doing the tutorial in the next update you will no longer be asked to create a character belonging to a class, but a new type of character that was created for the occasion: the Incarnate
 

When first stepping in Incarnam, you will play an Incarnate. With this character you will learn how to use the controls of WAKFU, the basic rules of the game, and choose your class.

Master Kano will also welcome you and teach you the basics. Starting a fight, moving and using spells, the importance of positioning, learning about masteries and side and back damage… All of these will be explained, as well as more details all along your experience on Incarnam and Astrub, such as how to use the map or what do quest items mean.

This revamp should help newcomers learn the rules of the game, with much more precise indications:
 Feature in development and not yet translated.

These will not be the only additions. For example, Wodents will have a new look, and see new members added to its family:
 

You will even find your very first dungeon, dedicated to this family!
 
After learning the basics in Incarnam, Sokay will ask you to choose a class.

Once this is done, you will be sent to Astrub (with the level and equipment items received in Incarnam) where a quest will ask you to talk to Master Bossowl to learn more about this old city, the Orgest Chaos and above all, the Nations from which you can chose a nationality…

Something important: You will be able to choose your nation by talking directly to Bossowl. You will see a window summing up all the specificities of each nation. This should make for a much easier Nation choice!
 
Feature in development and not yet translated.

The entire geography of Astrub will also be modified. Its points of interest will be better centralized and moving through it will be much easier and fun! Monsters and resources will also change, as you will now find a Bow Meow family and no more Astrub Resources, replaced by the normal resources available everywhere else in the game. But don’t worry, you should still find your way! Dungeons for example will be the same, and you will still find the Temple of Scriptures at the same place!

Some features will also be unlocked in Astrub for non-subscribers for them to better apprehend the game: they will be able to trade between non-subscribers, level up their gathering professions up to level 10 with the first game resources. For this purpose the Astrub resources will be removed in favor of "true" level 1 harvestable resources: Wheat, Ash, Sturgeon, Tin, Thistle and seeds. The new level 0 Tin ore will be replacing the Iron ore. Non-subscribers will be able to manage an exclusive ecosystem and Marketplace, and also use the boats!

New quests will be added to begin your journey from a new angle and better guide you to Mount Zinit. Talking of which, Zinit will now be doable in group, but this is another story, one that you will get to discover on October 1st!

why does wakfu not have a bank like dofus did where u can share your items between the same account, this would save us all having to farm set items such as gob or tofu for every character we try out

just a thought

2 Questions from a f2p
1) Will I be able to buy things from other people's haven bags?
2) Suppose I already have some of my harvesting professions to level 30. So will they be reduced to lvl 10?

So it means that the only way for non subscribers to get kamas will be to hunt monsters until they reach certain level from wich they will get 0 kamas from fights, and also the challange quest for krosmaster arena that give 40 kamas daily?

Well not that i am crying or something, but i thought we will be able to make kamas as non subcribers with the use or ore. Though i belive that would require some anti bot system like the guardian of resoruces (monsters that spawn and agro you while you mine ore).

Still i am happy that trade will be allowed, even though it seems a trade will be allowed only between subscriber and non subscriber. I suppose that means subscribers need to subsrcibe 2nd account to trade own items to their alt characters in the way non-subscribers can do without paying.... Kinda not good for subscribers you know. I hope you will add account-shared warehouse of some kind soon, or the ability to send items via mails to other players.

I just wonder will there be some handyman machines in asturb too? You know - to allow non subscribers to make keys for dungeons. Also it would be nice if non subscribers could craft piwi bags.

Hi everyone,

Following the received feedback, which we are thankful to the community for, we have added a few details (found in teal color in the Devblog) regarding the new changes for the non-subscribers:

Some features will also be unlocked in Astrub for non-subscribers for them to better apprehend the game: they will be able to trade between non-subscribers, level up their gathering professions up to level 10 with the first game resources. For this purpose the Astrub resources will be removed in favor of "true" level 1 harvestable resources: Wheat, Ash, Sturgeon, Tin, Thistle and seeds. The new level 0 Tin ore will be replacing the Iron ore. Non-subscribers will be able to manage an exclusive ecosystem and Marketplace, and also use the boats!

As an added precision regarding the new level 0 Tin ore: it will be related to forging professions (and others) without allowing non-subscribers to mine Iron and create Kamas.

Yay Sabi.

On the Tin, I take it it can be used in the same recipes that use Iron Ore if I read that right? Other than in the kama recipe. Or will there be specific Tin recipes now?

I am a happy bunny. Do this to Dofus and I'll probably stream with tears (of joy). Incarnate

I just realized that its the 2nd of October, anything I haven't seen yet?

@cody5: Yes, currently. But in future Astrub will be more like the "normal" starting areas - except there is no nation responsible for its state and nobody can be agressed... what do you think how many thistles, wheat and ash trees will be found there regulary?

No, they wont. Have you ever played Dofus? Its a bot heaven. It was one of the reasons i quit. Bots are literally running everywhere is groups and killing stuff and they never did anything with it.
I hope f2p will never be able to trade with p2p...
