MULTIMAN: concept and how to get them

MULTIMAN: concept and how to get them
2013-11-19 19:10 184
They’re coming, and they’re about to change your gameplay experience forever! Multiman is a sidekick system that allows you to control one or several characters in addition to yours! A super-bonus for those who play solo, a new way of dominating dungeons for guilds – a little revolution in WAKFU! And it's coming December 10...


The Multimen are the first characters to introduce the sidekick system to WAKFU. When you call them, Lumino, Skale, Krobax, Trank, Beelzebug, and Shadow will leap to your aid, under your direction! And this will just bring a fresh new way of experiencing the game, and develop new strategies.
 

Who are they?

6 Multimen, 6 Dofus... you do the math! These Vigilantes are hybrid creatures created from monsters and the magic of the Dofus. Ereziah Melkewel created them:
  • Firefoux + Ivory Dofus = Lumino
  • Red Scaraleaf + Crimson Dofus = Beelzebug 
  • Shark + Turquoise Dofus = Skale 
  • Crobak + Emerald Dofus = Krobax 
  • Treechnid + Ochre Dofus = Trank 
  • Ereziah's Shadow + Ebony Dofus = Shadow 
 
Each Multiman also has his own powers. You'll know more soon...
 

What is a Sidekick exactly?

A Sidekick fights alongside adventurers, is controlled by the player and counts as a character during a fight. Note that they won’t be usable in PvP.

Sidekicks can be equipped with all the same gear as a player's character, with no restrictions besides levels.

A character can control up to two Sidekicks at once in a fight.

The Sidekicks win experience but can't become more powerful than your character.

Sidekicks can be exchanged between players via the Marketplaces.
 

How does one acquire a Sidekick?

The first Sidekicks will be the Multimen. You can obtain them on the Boutique or via subscription offers.

In order to first be able to test a Multiman, you will get to test them for free ingame. The multiman available for free will change each week, and allow you to test Lumino, Skale, Krobax, Trank, Beelzebug and Shadow one after the other, if your account has a running subscription.

A seventh Sidekick will be available entirely for free ingame: the Astrub Mercenary! Getting him will be easy; you’ll only need to complete a quest in Astrub!
 

How to get them

Beelzebug, Skale, Krobax, and Trank:
The elemental Multimen will be sold separately in the Boutique starting from December 10th:
  • 5800 Ogrines each
  • 9000 Ogrines for 2 Elementary Multimen
  • 14000 Ogrines for all 4 Elementary Multimen
 
Lumino
The “Light” Multiman will be offered with 6 month subscription (additionally to the usual gifts).

Shadow
The “Darkness” Multiman will be offered with 1 year subscription (additionally to the usual gifts).
 

Why not asking us in a Poll like in DOFUS?

The Sidekick feature will be quite different in DOFUS and WAKFU. We chose precise acquisition means that would better fit what we have in mind for the game. Also, development of this model is already well advanced and modify it now could have a direct impact on the quality of the content.

Don’t forget that you’ll get the possibility to test this feature with the Mercenary of Astrub, and the weekly testing available with the Multimen.

Just to inform people, it appears the options to buy a Krobax/Skale combo pack isn't available in the shop. Dunno how many people ill actually try to buy that, but just letting it be known.

Like I said, one of the four elemental multimen will be free each week for testing. The only ones you can't test are shadow and luminos, evidently.

Shadow and Lumino will also be part of the free weekly testing.

@Kikuihimonji: The free testing is not a limited offer, it's part of the sidekick feature.

There is another issue about multimen that nobody seem to mentioned. We can test them now, but what about the new people who will join later? How would they be able to test them before buying them?

And what about the new comers who will download the game, check the boutique and see them there - they will learn from forum that they can test them now but to do so they need to be subscribed first. Here's where issue appear: they will have to sub (and get the multimen) before testing it!

The Knight of Astrub will always be free and available to everyone, presumably even those unsubbed as it's an astrub area quest to obtain him.

One of the four elemental multimen will be free each week.
You do realise that its not what i am talking about?

So what we can test knight of asturb if we cant test the spells of other sidekicks?
In order to choose a class - one need to investigate the spells that the class have. It is the same for Multimen. We can test them NOW, but we won't be able to test them later - correct me if i am wrong about it, Ankama.

My point is that i don't want to sub now to test them nor i want to buy them now. But i might want them once i sub, propably in next year, but then i won't have a chance to test them before buying them. Thats the issue.

And you can always look at all potential sidekicks and look at their spells via the sidekick interface, which shows ones you own and ones you don't, what all their spells are and their effects, even if you don't own them.

OK, please ensure that the costume pieces work with the Multimen... The dark one is sooo ugly (sorry Ereziah!). I rather have a zombie...

That's like saying party members are useless because you have dolls.

Eh, it's kinda true tho..

For the most part that's the exact reason my main is an Osa.
**I didn't wanna rely on other players or have to wait for them to play their turns out.

IE: I think party members are useless because I have my summons.

Continuing this train of thought.. the fact multimen basically turn every class into a "Summoner" without the huge drawback of building for summon dmg, means there's no real reason to play a Summoner class.

**Why be a summoner with mediocre dmg, when I can be a Boss with the dps and STILL have ma summons?

#FoodForThought.

I don't understand how you can come to that conclusion. I'm not even sure I should be responding to this. Osa's can have Multimen and whatever class you think has high DPS can have Multimen.

The Osa still has summons the DPS does not. Whatever you did with them before, you can still do now. Maybe the Osa wants an offensive Multiman because their summons are tanking. Meanwhile the DPS chooses a defensive Multiman to keep monsters off their back.

If you read my post, I already said people who multi-client rule the game. That's why I think multiman are a good solution for the time being for people who want solo and don't want to pay for multiple accounts just to catch up with everyone else.
The things are bad, so it's ok to make them even worse, instead of fixing problems? What kind of logic is that?
If you had read her post this helps fix the problem instead of making it worse.
