You probably already heard the sentence “In WAKFU, it’s all up to you”, and thought to yourself “what more can I do than influencing the ecosystem and politics?”
Some citizens of the World of Twelve decided to take this idea as far as they could, and use the sandbox properties of the game to shape it, and create services that are not yet implemented in the game.
It took a lot of work, and many bombs, but the result is breathtaking!
The story begins when the governor Captain, noticed that the Sufokia Mine zap (a highly visited spot) was lacking of a real purpose besides traveling. Captain decided to build a tournament arena. After discussion about the best location for the arena, the digging began, all handled by Captain himself (helped by his guild and other players, for the harvesting and crafting of bombs).
Two days and 125 bombs later, a first shape was dug.
But even the best fighters can’t provide much of a show without proper light. It took about one week to gather all the lanterns needed to light this arena up, involving the help of many players from all nations.
In an attempt to show the process and give you an idea of the amount of work this undertaking represents, we decided to produce a small Reenactment of the facts. Note that we can’t get much credit for this video, as getting all the required materials didn’t constitute as big of a challenge as it did to those who created the first ever PvP Arena in WAKFU!
WAKFU really puts players’ imagination and ambition in the spotlight, and there is no doubt that this is only the first of many achievements to shape the world the way you want.
Until then, congratulations to Captain and all those who helped him, leading the way to a world that reflects everyone's desires!
