Play!

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.

Forced to buy stuff.

Have to sub for half a year or full year to get the "gift" ones. Elemental ones only through boutique....
I just subbed for half a year, so I'm annoyed.

Groups are great, but let's be honest here- when I'm trying to drop a couple of Ratty Riot shields and nobody anywhere wants to run it because that's the only decent thing that drops in the dungeon, it's going to be nice to have something alongside my single osa and single enutrof.

(I do wish the prices were lower, but at least now I have a possible excuse to sub for a longer length of time)

I'm also excited that you can equip the Multimen/Astrub Mercenary.

It should add some more demand for set pieces on the marketplace We can all make a bit of extra kamas

I manage my money and still can't afford a big honking 6 account computer system/monitors. Boyfriend, too. He's in school, and I'm not able to work (yay missing internal organs! go fun!)

I guess maybe not rich, just... it will help those with less disposable income make some progress similar to those with oodles of it.

Sure, wait about 10 years for the game to catch up with the beginning of the anime series?

Or maybe play Krosmaster Arena and then feel bad because they suck in the metagame?

Still it would be cool if there was something like that.

I'd like a Joris/Pupuce team, personally.

Well, you can play with your boyfriend and have a full team, guess you wont need to talk to anyone else again, won't need or be able to ask anyone for help since they will be isolating themselves just as much as you.

... wait, isn't the social aspect of the game the reason we play?

Maybe my comment may be a bit out of place with all this ranting about scamming us and ruining the game and stuff, but I must say from the Wakfu lore point of view: you guys serious? You really gonna go with 'A wizard did it'? I've seen multiple comparisons between the Multimen and the Power Rangers, but this reeks of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles all over. Take your average wildlife, splash them with some magic ooze/dofus (that last time we checked were still in Ogrest's possession) and boom: crimefighters and crimelords? I was hoping for a more interesting backstory. Heck, the longer I look at them, the more I see those turtles, with Splinter and Shredder and everything. I was so hoping for some link to the Justice Knights and the villains piling up in Alkatrool...

One plus point maybe: "The first sidekicks will be the Multimen" So I'm guessing this will be something like the pet system? You can buy them, but you can also win or find them in-game? No one complained (too much) about those, right? I like my pets...

It's time for Arc's two questions!

1. Do sidekicks break PP/EXP caps?

2. During a dungeon run, do they give wis bonus?


i wont ask about if they drop gear, obviously they wont.

Save your "isolated" player judgments for people you actually know.

What I'm saying is there are often times when we are the only people on in our guild, or in our maxxed-out friendslists, or other people we know and love and are friends in real life with are doing their own things ingame, and can't accompany the both of us on our personal projects and goals in Wakfu.

Sometimes the guildies already have full groups, or they're leveling professions. Should I rather whine and force them out of what they want to do, just so I can stuff my group full? Sorry but manipulating people like that seems pretty aggressive to me.

There's plenty of times already when they help me, or we go and help them, or I form groups from random people and miscellaneous Guilds. And it's going to be nice to fill in that 5th or 5th spot if we want to run Lunar or hunting on Wabit or killing Polar Cracklers and need more fire hits, or something, and aren't having any luck finding a full group.


There are a lot of reasons that 2 people with 2 accounts would find it beneficial to have filler sub-classes, and in our personal instance none of these have anything to do with us wanting to be isolated or to exclude others.

And if playing a game with someone while you cuddle together isn't a social aspect of the game, I don't know what is.
