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.

last year or something around that there was that hoodlum costume and few scrolls of restat for those, who have been year-subbed, and i received it even tho i had like half of year left.
that worked well, so what's the problem with current topic?

if a dude is running on a year sub - no matter how long ago that did happen if its not yet expired - then you should give him that gift, thats how it worked, thats how it should work this time in my oppinion.

Some would say that we could just give it to those who subscribed for a year already, without limit as long as the subscription is still running. But then someone who subscribed a year ago, and has only one day left in his subscription time would also receive the gift, whereas he already “used” what he paid for. He might even already have had an extra gift back then, with an offer that was available at this time.

That is simply a form of rewarding loyalty, and that's generally considered a good business model. You haven't exactly delivered on everything you guys put up for the annual roadmap, with multiple things pushed back and some discarded or given an unknown completion date, AFTER setting one already. What about the people that might have subbed for some month's content, that you said they would get, and then they didn't get it?

Rewarding it for people who have subbed for a year already means someone who is already invested in the game is given something for it. I don't see how that's a bad thing. The sentiment that they might have gotten some other deal is simply being petty--Are you really trying to say they would be getting too good of a deal, if they got this? I think most of your playerbase would disagree with you.

Problem here is, where would you draw the line?

We would give it to those who subscribed for one year just the day before? Those who subscribed 2 days before would be unhappy. Let’s make it 5 days before, but those who subscribed 6 days before would be frustrated. Alright, let’s make it one month before. And those who subscribed 31 days before?

There will always be someone that will feel left aside.

Subscription bonuses are always a very sensible matter, and we always applied it this way. There is sadly no perfect solution that would satisfy everyone.

I think the biggest kick in the face for this is the fact that some people could have literally just bought a year subscription, but they would have to buy another year subscription to get the special year sub one.... they literally just gave you a year's worth of money and you aren't going to tack on one of these things even if they subbed the day before the release? that seems a bit... harsh, I guess? I mean they ARE supporting you... and if they have like at least 340 or 350 days left on their sub or something, why not just give them the thing? I dunno... :/ I mean I can understand it's not very easy to track down all of the players that meet that criteria... but at the same time... I mean that's a friggen YEAR...

Let me throw my cynical comment here.
Wakfu isn't something that players are expecting it to be, anymore. Ankama fails at making their own game, at customer service, more and more people are leaving because any patience has its limit.
And what Ankama does? Are they trying to meet players' expectation, are they paying more attention to the lore, maybe they finally stop adding new useless content and focus on some really important points, like classes, politics, crafting, ever-waiting tickets?.. Nooo, they simply add P2W-like stuff, which they think is going to compensate the money loss caused by quitting players. Good one.

This is a bad news to me.

It's a p2w system.

Either f2p and shop or monthly sub, not both.

Or make the game like GW2: B2P with the shop.
