Today, we’re talking about... the .Last week I was telling you about the state of the world. A desolate place, where survival is the watchword.You’ve probably been wondering how civilization can survive without cities, even without houses. The credit goes to a small magical item: the dimensional satchel. Some say it was created by a great inventor from the last century, a certain “Jay Ofaïndoll”. The same one who invented the machine to slice buns (very different from the one used to slice bread, of course) or the manual lawnmower (also known in some places as ‘big scissors’).However another rumor, almost a legend I should say, says that in fact the god Enutrof himself offered the very first bag to Jay.He probably had a little pity for these poor beings trying to survive the aftermath of Ogrest’s Chaos.The fact remains that today the dimensional satchel is a reality. And over the years, it has become an indispensable part of life in the world of Wakfu.But let me explain how it works.So, a dimensional satchel is a magical bag. Its particularity is simple: the inside is bigger than the outside. Put one on the ground and try to jump in. You will immediately find yourself in a room, sometimes dark, sometimes bright, large or small, that is actuality inside this satchel. Convenient to evade taxes, you say. And this is not untrue. But that’s not all. The Dimensional Satchel is magically shapable with gems.Shapable? How? What gems? And why? So many questions. I will respond to them all…These are little jewels that you can find anywhere in the world of Wakfu. However, it was noted that they are most often concentrated underground. So the easiest way to find them is to dig or to venture to the bottom of dark caves. But beware of the caves. The smell is generally nauseating, and you can always fall upon some Arachnees or Treechnids.Now that you have the gems, what can you make with them…?If you jump in your dimensional satchel, you will immediately see a small room on your left. This is a sort of magical control panel for your bag.You will see nearly twenty (18 to be precise) crevices. And, as if by miracle, you will realize that the gem you just found fits perfectly inside! Put a gem in one of these holes and you will see your bag transform before your eyes.Lots of things, my good sir!First, you can use it to sell the results of your efforts. Whether you are harvester, hunter, fisherman or fighter, the first room of your satchel will always be used to sell the results of your work.To do so, nothing easier. Find a carpenter and order him a display cabinet. Then put it in your bag and here you go, you can sell your stuff! How do people know what you have to sell? Don’t worry, it’s automatic. Goodbye old dimensional satchel with its “baluchat” management. You have under your eyes the best of technology, brought to you by Jay!You’re a specialist in bread baking? You have put bread in your display, fixed a price? You’re done.Every wanderer passing ahead of your bag will see the little magic draw of bread. With this, advertising is assured.Ah, a rushed one…Well, okay, I hurry up. It’s true I’ve already made you wait long. At least 4 days…Depending on the gem you embed in your control panel, your satchel can create a new specialized room.You can find all kind of gems. Some allow you to have a personal space, perfect for relaxing or storing rare items.Others create a space for your guild where you can share all your best recipes or arrange SuperWar meetings. You can also have with the appropriate gem a workshop that will allow you to exercise the crafting job of your choice. And, the icing on the cake, it would even seem that some gems would allow you to have a private meadow in your bag. So, Mister goes directly to the relevant questions. Thank you very much.Well at first, it’s rather small. Don’t kid around. A quick estimate shows that if we wanted to receive people in your store, we could be 16 before stepping on each other feet.16, it’s not much you say. And it’s true. But don’t worry, Jay has thought of everything!As mentioned previously, the control panel can take 18 gems. However, the dimensional satchel can only contain 9 rooms at the most.Therefore you might say there are 9 spare gems. Not at all! In fact, each room can accommodate up to 2 gems.The first is used to activate, the second to enlarge.Put a first field gem in an empty room and you will have a field of 4x4. Put a second of the same type and your field will become 5x5. So surface will be 25 instead of 16. Not bad, eh?And it’s even better! Put two rooms of 5x5 side by side and see what happens… Yes, the rooms combine to form only one. Magic, isn’t it? Well yes, it is magic The dimensional Satchel is a space you can customize, even enlarge, as you please. Inside you can escape the harsh life of this world, but also manage your exchange with the outside world, practice your job, store items…What can you ask furthermore?Kam
Hi everybody!Let me introduce myself, Zidrune at your service. I may have heard somewhere some players saying “Ankama has left us behind, the devblog isn’t updated anymore!” So here I am, ready to provide you with some news. First, I will start by being Kam’s voice on the English Devblog. His posts are not so new anymore but I hope I can quickly catch up with the French side. And maybe after that I’ll find time to provide you with exclusive information.I leave you with two articles from Kam: Wakfu 2.0 and a little piece of Background.See you soon for more!
Hi everybody!Previously, on Wakfu Forums (for those who are not addicted to it)…After a critical post by players a few days ago, I had done a quick appearance on the French official forum in order to make a short statement of the game developing.For those who can read French and lose 10 hours of their life, you can still find it here. There is also a short translation made by Yrona here.For the others, I’ll sum it up.Yes, today the game is not a game. It lacks those little things which make an MMO a source of pleasure and leave a feeling of “I’ll come back to it”. Yes, you have told us so, and yes we are aware of it. I won’t come back to the reasons of this ascertainment, there’s a lot of them and they are complex. Read the post for more information.The result is here: today, as developers, graphic or game designers, we’re not proud of the game like it is. From here, we have two options. We stop everything and go back home, or we refocus the game production on what will make Wakfu an atypical MMORPG as Dofus is.For the scandalmongers in the back: no we haven’t chosen the first option.What does this really mean? Three points:- Better communication with you.A videogame production without retard, it’s a gowball without fur: it’s never been seen. Well ok, with this we are not in shortage. I’d be a complete jerk if I told you today “This day at this hour you will have the final version of Wakfu”. Of course, we have desires, will and planning. But imponderables exist, as much as last minute good ideas or last chance gameplay modifications. If I can’t give you a date which would change every week, I can promise you transparency. From now on, we will tell you each week what we work on. If we have advance, we say it and you congratulate us. If we are late, we tell you why. Whether it’s justify and I hope you will forgive us, whether it’s not and then… you’re free to burn us alive. Our goal being that this never happens. - A big rethink of the creation. Today, Wakfu is an empty shell without soul. Change is on its way to make the game’s universe interesting. Which means: various and atypical monsters, extraordinary places which carry history. And also a certain logical in crafting, drops, ecosystem…- A refocus on features which will make Wakfu what it will be…And not a -like. These features are not new, Tot already presented them to you some time ago. A totally free ecosystem. The character evolution based on his actions. No NPC (yes, we insist). The Wakfu (we talk again about this soon). The dimensional Satchel. etc…Now, I see you coming. You think: ok, they do it again, they say “it will change” for the fifth time. And you’re right. Nothing will change!!!!……Well, ok, I’m joking. I know, not funny, but at least now you know where the sometimes lame Dofus humor comes from. For you to realize that it’s not only some words in the wind, from now on each week (say Wednesday, seeing we are Wednesday today) I will post you not only a summary of our current progression, but also some information on a particular point of gameplay. I will not give you ALL the details, so you won’t be spoiled, but there will be enough information for you to catch the idea of what happens and on top of that, for you to react, suggest, criticize… I don’t hide it, it’s for keeping you posted as much as for collecting your suggestions as soon as possible.Something concrete, something to get your teeth into!!!Ok, so now you still wonder what’s new in this news. The answer is simple: nothing. I’m good at writing a lot to say nothing, aren’t I? First important thing: Date of the next game update. Expected in March.Internally, our date is February 28. If we add the time needed to test it (at least one week), latest corrections, latest adjustments, we end up half March.Which means until then, there will be no more updates. Which also means by this time, modifications made will force us to reset every character.Second thing, here is the list of what I’m going to talk about during the coming weeks:- The Wakfu- The Backpack and merchants- Guilds- Jobs- PoliticThird and last thing: after this post, I’ll create a second one to talk to you about Background and World Geography.Ok, this seems ridiculous like this, but well, it has changed a lot and who knows, there may be some surprises… (Oh, the suspense!!!)A quick resume, sir?1- We are aware there’s a problem with Wakfu, and we try to repair it.2- I promise you more transparency.3- We will focus on Wakfu’s own features.4- Every week, I will inform you on the game progression and on one point of gameplay.5- Your comments/critics (encouragements?) are always welcome.6- I’m going to buy a Coke and I will post in the Gameplay section.7- See you back here soon. Thanks for reading all this!!!Kam
A little speech being better than a nice drawing, or whatever JeanDeLano says, here’s a letter recently found on a beach of Kerd… for your eyes only.It was in a dirty flask of potion, and a small label half erased by the waves stated “To you who read this, no matter when and where.Be aware of your role in the world. We are today on the brink of collapse. Will you be the one who will make the fatal step? “.It pretty well describes the world as it is in the era of the Wakfu game. But I let you read it…[center]We are several hundred years after Dofus.Ogrest, who recovered the dragon eggs and became all-powerful, had just lost his beloved Dathura. From the top of his mountain, he can’t stop crying over his lost love, making the world suffer a second deluge.The waves rise. Cities are destroyed, crops lost, species endangered, and the men themselves suffer the brunt of what will be called Ogrest’s Chaos.Therefore we are in the middle of a troubled period. The Golden Age where Iops, Osamodas or others Ecaflip cats could walk quietly seeking ingredients for the last fashionable potion is gone. Everyone has now only one goal: survive and rebuild the world.Since the beginning of the Ogrest Chaos, the best scientists have studied again and again the phenomenon. We know now a little more about the world’s machinery.The Wakfu has been discovered, or I’d rather said rediscovered. For the most uneducated of you who tend to discuss the last game of Gobbowl during classes, here’s a quick summary of our current knowledge.The world is full of Wakfu, this primordial energy which would be the origin of both life and magic. Many hypotheses have been developed, none is fully satisfying in the present state of knowledge.Where do we find Wakfu? Everywhere indeed. Within each living being first. Within the world itself then. It was proven long ago that the islands and continents of our world “float” on streams of telluric Wakfu.We also know now that it’s through these Wakfu flows that Zaaps work. How can these portals transport human beings from one location to another? Nobody really knows. Otherwise, it appears that many Zaap no longer works since the Wakfu map in the world has changed.Important fact, we also know now that the Ogrest’s tears are not solely responsible for the rising waters. It has been proved that changes in the flows of telluric Wakfu led many lands at the bottom of oceans.Moreover, at the time I’m writing, I hear my little island shouting its pain. Poor fool that we are, we have not been able to preserve the balance of Wakfu which had rescued us so far from the ocean depths. Will we have enough time to react and prevent the destruction of the semblance of civilization that we had begun to recreate? Should we still fight or would it be wiser to already run away to one of the nearby islands?I will say it in my next letter, if Iop allows me.[/center]What can we get from this small text? Some geographical indications first. Waters that rise? Islands? But what happened to these dear extensive lands we knew in Dofus? It seems only part of them is still emerged. By the time of this letter, the watchword was survival. The point was: to recreate civilization on a very small piece of land, with limited resources and neighbors who behave as they like.Another important detail: the insecurity the author feels. What is this threat of which he speaks? What is this balance to which is alludes?Many questions to which you will have the answers next week, by following the latest episode of… hmm… no, I’ve got carried away.Well, here is the thing: next week, I’ll speak of the ecosystem. The link, you ask? Think, the connection exists. Everything is in the letter.And yes, if you’re nice, you may even get some screenshots of the Wakfu world like it will be in the next update. I take the time to launch ‘toshop, to edit a bit so that it won’t hurt your eyes, to remove the secret passages and other horny drawings here and there, and I will give you that.
Hear ye, Hear ye! A cloud of dust blinds me, workers hold drills…With all the construction work, my arrival at Ankama wasn’t very relaxing. But I’ve finally gotten here, to the land of Tofus. And even those loud noises in the walls and the capricious air conditioner will not kill my motivation! But let’s get back to our business.Let me introduce myself. I’m Glacialena and I’m in charge of the french Wakfu community, and part of my job is to form a connection between the players and the developers.I will pamper you, answer your questions and torture Tanuki-Sempai so that he reveals all the new content of Wakfu!I hope to see you very soon on the forums!
We’ve decided to give you a little glimpse into what goes on day to day here at Ankama… for your eyes only!8 am, arrival at Ankama: BAM BAM BAM ... Bzzzzzzzzzzzz ... Klung Klang ...Venom: Hey, they are working already? Do these guys ever sleep...? 10 am, in the middle of reviewing some details of the ecosystem: BAM BAM BAM ... Bzzzzzzzzzzzz ... Klung Klang ...Venom: What’s that huge black thing on the window, it looks like… Yeurk. BOUM ... BOUM Tanuki: It’s Godzilla, run!!! … 1 pm, after a nice little meal: […]Venom: **Burp** Ahhhh finally some peace, they must have gone for lunch. BAM BAM BAM ... Bzzzzzzzzzzzz ... Klung Klang.....Venom: Ah noooooooooo! **pulls out his hair** 3.30 pm, coffee break at our little terrace: BAM BAM BAM ... Bzzzzzzzzzzzz ... Klung Klang ...Venom: Ahhh it’s horrible, what’s that noise? (koff... koff...) Rumo: Hey guys, I just invented chewy coffee!Venom: What? ... Where are you? ... Recipe: Chewy coffee •A little cup of hot coffee just out of the machine• A construction site full of dust • Mix it… and it’s ready! Yep, soon we’ll have a clean, renovated building… but until then, we have to put up with all the construction work!
It was a source of incredible surprise, and then of crazy bets: which will be the next god to arise? Around the whole world, the fervor has awoken; the belief in these ancient gods is finally paying off!From mouth to ear, from ear to cabbage leave, the message has been passed on to the depths of the regions under construction in the world of Wakfu: “The gods are back, the gods are listening to you!” Yes, the last dozing gods have returned, Pandawa, Ecaflip, Enutrof… and Sadida, the only god whose sleep didn’t worry anybody.In a post cataclysmic universe dominated by beliefs based on Ogrest’s fear, the return of the 12 seems to have changed everything. Is a semblance of harmony possible once more? Each god is a possibility in itself, a possible future, hope, a lifestyle, a moral, each one with his subtleties, his deviations, his conflicts, his doubts.I cannot imagine how the past world, reigned by the sole fear of imminent ruin (Ogrest and his symbolic representation), can become one with hopes and, most of all, oppositions? We are surely experiencing a revolution as important as that of the great downpour. All the most powerful means are formal;Wakfu is so gravely disturbed that a new catastrophe could arrive at any moment! This is of course only a personal interpretation, but don’t you think that if we fail to organize ourselves soon, we’ll soon experience the insanity of men drunk of gods? Patch 0.77 brought us the last gods, but many other new gifts too: A global map of the worldA new interfaceArrival of the Skin Tanning professionNew craft recipesA new drop systemCombat bonus for quick playersThat’s all for now, I’m going to continue meditating on the future of this world…
Since my last visit to the world of Wakfu, there has been nothing but surprises! All over the world I discover the growing passion of the faithful for the forgotten gods… But forgotten for how much longer? With each detour, a prayer, to every shadow its meaning, to each sign an interpretation. Everything that exists is reason enough to demand the return of a god. Is it spring, the season of rebirth, which makes the creatures hope for the return?Yesterday I met Tanuki-sempai, he who thought I was crazy. I believed he had lost his mind, he wouldn’t stop repeating: “No, this is not possible, it’s not in the code… not in the code, it’s impossible… it’s not logical, not in the code.”He seemed pathetic. Last Friday we patched the 0.75, two or three little changes, new zones, and that’s ALL!On Monday morning, to everyone’s surprise, we could see a phenomenal number of Xelor and Eniripsa, chasing after Gobballs and Piwis. As usual, and in the hopes that it will help us understand what is happening, I will show you here what seem to me the most explicit messages to the gods from some admirably religious people!However, there’s something else I’m curious about: what is Ogrest doing? Does he sense the return of the gods? And talking of senses, for several days, we have been haunted by a horrible smell, the same smell that sometimes escapes from the basement.But now that I think of it, maybe Aduline has some idea of where it comes from!Ghostrider for XelorLagotar for XelorAlchemistNation for Xelor (Warning, gif animations! it can be long to see) Elwes for EniripsaStormfury for EniripsaAnd more... Yukes - Kullte - Damoiselle-Shimaru - LouizZz-la-FourmizZz –
Today is a special day - a lot of people took a long weekend and the offices are rather empty.Even Tanuki-Sempai isn’t around to supervise us!So I’ll take this opportunity to talk about my life… and for instance, hmm… my soup! What’s wrong with soup? It tastes really good! My colleagues always look at me strangely when I heat up my pack of soup, while they are there with their noodles from the day before or their ready meals which can give you cancer, by the way…Seriously, I don’t understand! You can find these delicious fresh soups with broccoli or asparagus in any supermarket! And in summer, there’s nothing more refreshing than a cool and spicy gazpacho!Besides, I’m not the only one who appreciates soup around here… a few days ago, it was the annual festival of the “Golden Ladle” with its famous open-air soup contest and free tasting. I participated a few years ago with a nettle soup and a coral lens soup with ginger… but that’s another story But I’m still surrounded by soup, because these days, I’m busy creating recipes that will help you create potions, poisons, sweets, small dishes… in Wakfu. And of course soup! To do so, I have different vegetables, plants, cereals, mushrooms, but also flowers, fruits, Ergot Concoction (yes, that exists!), pollen and spores, vegetable essence...What about you? Do you have any good soup recipes to suggest?If some of them inspire me, you might even find them in the game…
Aaaaaaaah! Finally some sunshine!! A week… Or two?Or even a month?? How long have I been held by this monster?I should never have hidden in the basement to read Jean DeLano’s secret notes …I had been warned that there were weird growls downstairs, despite the new sophisticated security system…I’m really looking forward to having a shower, I’m covered in ogre mucus… This huge smelly heap is just too ‘affectionate’…I don’t even know how I managed to escape. I thought I heard voices, saw silhouettes… I heard someone running down the stairway… and it woke me up, I was blinded by a flash of light, and the huge monster too. I took advantage of the moment and escaped! But I couldn’t find anybody, just this dusty camera. Who could it have been? Why did he disappear? Why did he take these photos? By the way, they are really bad, but that doesn’t tell me anything about the identity of my possible savior…Just another mystery to solve. And everybody has left the office! Hum let’s see where they are… Oh, version 0.73 now! This version finally has sound, too! That’s good news… Well, all I can do now is continue working and discreetly investigate… There are strange things going on here…
