Discover the first part of the changelog of our newest WAKFU Update: Questing for Bosses, released on August 7th!




Today we unveil the first part listing all the new content that will be implemented on August 7th.



The second part listing further improvements and bug fixing will be communicated in the next days.



Enjoy!

 


Improvements


Class balancing


As we announced a few days ago, a global class balancing will be held. Find out more, class by class, by following these links:




These major changes to the thirteen classes come with a total restat (spells experience, ability and specialty points).




Note that along with this balancing, the bugs linked to the classes will be fixed as well.



New pets: the Milimoowolf and the Baby Schnek


If you are fond of animals you will be thrilled thanks to the new pets: the Milimoowolf and the Baby Schnek!



The Milimoowolf brings you bonuses to Block and resists and can be obtained as a classical fight loot. Work out to find out which monsters drop it!



Regarding the Baby Schnek, it brings you a Wisdom bonus. How can you get it? Remember, the last time you visited the Queen Schnek, what happened to her eggs? Small tip to help you finding how to get one of her babies…








New quest system


We have improved the current quest system in order to make it more dynamic and varied. Now you can experiment four kinds of quest: the Adventure, the Environmental, the Automatic and the Discovery quests.



We also have clarified the quests interface to make it more accessible: the Quest Book has been reorganised, the ergonomic design of the Achievement Monitor has been enhanced and we have made a few more improvements for greater readability and global comprehension.



Do you want to know more about it? Check this Devblog article!



New worldboss system: the Ultimate Bosses


A new major improvement that is close to your heart: the implementation of a new WorldBoss system, the "Ultimate Bosses".



This improvement is linked to the previous point about the Quest Book. You will have to finish a quest to access the different Ultimate Bosses' Lairs that are now open to all. No more time spent waiting for your turn: now, you all have a chance to try to beat them!



To find out the access conditions for this high level content, read the dedicated Devblog article.





And welcome to the latest arrival in the Ultimate Bosses family: the Gobbalrog! You can find him in Brakmar: you'll have to venture at the foot of the volcano and search for the clues that will bring you to the doors of his residence... You asked for a challenge? Here you go...








Amaknians, Bontarians and Sufokians, if you think you are safe, you are wrong: your Nations will soon see the advent of some exclusive Ultimate Bosses.



Note that the Ultimate Boss Gobbsage will be improved. The Gobbsage will not appear in all the Nations but only in the Wild Estate in its spectral shape: "Excarnus"!



But be careful... the Ultimate Bosses difficulty has been increased and the fight loots have also changed! You will find the details about it in the second part of the release note.



Some inhabitants of the World of Twelve are already singing this disturbing song: "Excarnus will steal your soul, the Moowolf will devour you, the Crow will steal you feathers and the Gobbalrog will make you go through hell!"

 

Pvp optimisation


One of the aims of the balancing is to restart on a sound basis to improve the PvP. With this patch, we start to implement some improvements like a Health Points boost during PvP fights, a new timeline system or a non-aggression state after a defeat during a PvP fight.






You can find all these improvements in the dedicated Azael's Devblog article.

Great job Ankama ---*coughs*,, uhum,,, :/ Didn't think so. There is something like real life. Some people have to work you know, and they work like 10 to 12 hours a day. Those people won't be able to restart their abilities. Is this your way of working Ankama? Seriously?? Do you really think that people have nothing to do than sitting 24 hours a day and 7 days a week in front of their computer and playing this game?! There is always something in your " new patch" what disappoints me, can't you do things right, even just for once???

I like other changes, although I'm not happy with some "Class balance" changes. Some classes you nerved badly but you made their other element trees much stronger. For example: you made Air Cra op again, just like in the beginning / the release of this game.

I'm happy with the new Pet's, but I think very limited people will be able to get it, which makes things not fair again...... We will see......

What does this have to do with people working? :/
It's a task of 5 minutes once you log on and run to Jonk and there you have your reset.

The problem is people not reading the forums and then not knowing whats going on. If they read they would know that they have a time limit of 10 hours to reset and not long on until they have time to run ther char to Jonk

Air cra op again?

3 x storm require 2 mp from stats. Overall damage lower than fire.

Fire cra, its 3 x blazing, 2 x blinding and 1 x explo + blaze, doesnt need any point in stats point.

Just a little notice: when my fire rogue running Mobile Arena, i'm rly afraid of Bomb Challenge that can be triggered random.
I'm using firewall (5 bombs together) and this challenge summons few bombs on the field. And if i ruin this challenge, bombs explode,,, with my blinding and burning bombs. Even if my bombs is far away from challenge bombs - doesnt matter, it goes to explode anyway.

I didnt send ticket to support, cause its useless, i didnt get a respond for my previous tickets, but mb someone from french server send it to devs :/

u better learn how to read right cause


Once the update is deployed upon connecting for the first time with a character, a new quest will appear.

Ugrh, cry some more.

^^My bad I've read it wrong, was sleepy. But I'm not crying, I was thinking to people who can't log in because they need to work. You said: "Learn how to read" Vice versa for you, Learn How To Read, and read my text again. Anyway I'm happy I did read wrong.

@ChocoboKnight
There are some people in my guild who is going to change their build to Air cra, they told me it's OP again. And besides it's very easy to get +2 MP. That's never been a problem for a cra. 1 from stats, and 1 from boots and there you go. Even without putting points in stats, it's not that difficult to get +2MP.

And to Troyle. Thank you for your good job and I really appreciate everything you do for all of us. And thank you for letting Ankama know if we don't like things in game. You help us a lot. Thanks again, and keep up the good job

Cheers xD

u need +2 from STATS only, cause for 3 storm arrow u need 6 (3+1+2) mp and 9 ap.
and lets see, i have one cra 102 lvl now.
i have +ap shadowed ammu, full bc and 100 lvl maka... +3 ap, +1 mp.
and if i'll lvl up +2 mp from stats i'll get good old air cra?

Due to the change of abilities cost, note that upon logging in for the first time your characters will directly receive a stats reset.

This means that if you complete the quest, you will be able to reset your abilities twice (once when logging in, and another time when completing the quest).
The spells experience however is only reset when completing the quest.
