Play!

The life of the Gods is not always as exciting as you think. Behind the glitz and glamour lies an evil that sometimes eats them on the inside: BOREDOM. To chase it away and have a better time, Sadida has a fine method to experiment, mix, combine and ultimately create! But this can lead to strange results... 


Originally this doll was created to distract her God accompanying Sadida on the wildest adventures as first intended to. Alas, quickly the doll revealed to be a strong character. Sadida made ​​every effort to soften the doll, but she could only say no, no, no, no, no, nooo...

Sadida then had no choice but to separate Filacia from the other dolls, since it was wiser doing so, and isolating her in a small private garden. .


Starting this week, you will have the opportunity to face Filacia as she is the official WAKFU boss of the Ankama Convention which takes place from May 2nd to the 4th in Lille, France!

And since the particular aspect of weeds is to spread themselves, Filacia is no exception to the rule! Rub yourself against this sharp character and you will leave with perhaps a Filacia as a Sidekick! And an exclusive one! Be careful, however: all that is small is not necessarily cute...

 

You now understand it right: Filacia is a future Sidekick that you will have the chance to find in the game this year. Only players having beaten her at conventions or other special events may have her with them immediately! For all the others, they will have to be patient... 

Assemble a team of three people, arm yourself with courage and dare to go play with dolls! Warning: you will only have 10 turns to overcome this tenacious plant and not one more! 

For the occasion and to highlight this unique boss, LDLC joins Ankama by providing players with PCs that will allow them to beat the terrible Filacia! As a major presence in the online sale of computer hardware and components, LDLC accompany the players during these three days to provide them with the best technology.

Something else i want to say is that people did read this will most likely be a free sidekick right? ahem " filacia is a future sidekick that you will have the chance to find in the game this year." i read that as you will have to find her in game somewhere *sadida dimension maybe in her garden* i mean it would mean another high level free sidekick and that would be cool. However this is ankama so i never doubt they would charge us but im still betting she will be free.
it seems somebody already forgot how ankama love money...
Astrub Knight is the "crappy" free trial type sidekick, while the other "good ones" are priced high. So yay for ankama...

Astrub Knight is actually quite amazing. Only lacking in number of ablilities compared to other Sidekicks, but if you look at this Click here , you will see that Astrub Knight not only has comparable damage to Shadow, but comparable damage to normal classes as well.

@Nox16
Hmm, didn't see it when I logged quickly before work, but I guess I could have missed it. Guess I'll have to wait 8 hours till I'm off to get home and check again. Hopefully it is there for me to look at

@aquabeauty
As I've not seen the abilities, I'm not sure how much better they are than the Sadida. As you might (or might not know) I'm a Sadi myself and would like to see the differences. Sadly Sadida's as far as Ankama is concerned are not ment to do high damage normally, but even without seeing Filacia's abilities, they may just have higher base damages as I'm guessing she surely cannot summon anything to help her fight (and as compared to Air, we have poisons of multiple kinds and can lower resists, but I don't again know if Filacia has anything like that, if she doesn't have extra effects and just damage, could be another reason she has higher base damages).

Oh, and there is a screenshot of a Ultra-powerful critting on the Sadida Forum.



After I finally get a chance to see her Abilites/Specialties/Spells, I think I actually will finish up my comparison on Lumino (finally) and do one on Protoflex and Filacia as well for completeness.

Here's a screenshot with her skills at level 100, just in case anyone's still having trouble trying to see her from the game. Nothing that makes me overly excited about her, though she seems to have some interesting combos and has both AoE attacks and MP draining, which is always nice. Notice that the ones we'll be getting are Filacia's offspring, the (Virulent) Treacherose(s), for those who found a reason to complain even on her name. Those saying she's better than an air Sadida, I have to disagree. She doesn't have nearly as much utility or even overall power, and the only thing she gets an upper hand with is she drains MP when her air damage is greater than earth, something a Sadi would need to rely on her Earth branch for instead.

EDIT: Oh, and from what it seems, air will be the DPT/debuff branch, earth the tanky branch. Even though she doesn't look particularly fit for it...

So it has shielding like Feca (it attack AND get shield) wich makes it better then Sadida shields and poisons that deal more dmg per MP then that of Sadida, + it can fully protect ally from dmg like Trank or sacrier (or feca again) and it get Venom state that boost its resist nicely per level, unlike the Tree of Sadida wich seems to be 2x weaker in that resist aspect.


In other words by making this Sidekick Ankama is asking you to stop playing Sadida and buy this sidekick instead. I can even see my idea of "bramble spell cast once on target grabbing it and then cast on empty cell moving that target" was taken to this sidekick too instead to sadida as i suggested (those rose chains).


You better revamp and rebalance Sadida now, Ankama, if you still want to make sidekicks not better then class itself.

This is just a dumb comment to make. It's akin to enis saying that Lumino replaces them, or that Trank replaces Feca/Sacrier/Fogger tanks, or that Protoflex replaces pandas, or that Shadow/Astrub replaces Iops, or that Beelz replaces Cras, or what-the-fuck-ever.

Get over yourself.

Sorry Kiku, but while I love your enthusiasm toward the Sadida's and you have many great ideas you've posted, I'm going to have to agree with Taku here.

While I've only been able to see the screenshot of the abilities and not able to look at them in game yet (still at work for another 4 hours), it seems to me that Filacia is very different from the Sadida's. So a direct comparison isn't going to work. Just because she was made by God Sadida himself and is plant themed, doesn't automatically mean you need to do a direct comparison of the two. (Such as I hope you don't compare Trank to a Sadida just because he's a tree.)

From the little look on the screenshot (again thanks for posting that), Filacia seems like a bit of a glass cannon. With her AP boost, she recieves more damage. With her Spine Jet state, she get's MP and +Dmg, but takes direct damage herself from that too. She can help tank by redirecting damage, but thankfully she has some HP regen from skills and she has a teleport spell that costs 2 wakfu (to use twice to do the teleport).

None of that sound Sadida-ish at all. No summons, dolls, poisons, MP removals, voodolls, direct heals to allies/self, pushes (like the amazing gust spell), or armor. (Of course when I say no poisons, she doesn't really have any, even with two states that say Venom and Rage Toxin, as one is a buff to her and the other is for redirecting damage/ getting enemies attention.)

*edit, the italicized above were added.

Filacia is a Glass Cannon/Off-Tank. An odd combo to be true, but the Glass Cannon part is something very different from the Sadida. That along with Filacia's Off-Tank capabilities being completely different from a Sadida's.

Sadly this means she may have more raw damage than a Sadida (while also being able to give enemies MP to deal even more damage for some reason). Though I still will like to go over the numbers more closely later when I get off work.

Just a minor correction here, the Spine Jet state seems to apply to enemies instead, it's basically giving them back any drained MP in exchange for taking even more air damage. I have no means to check if the state is consumed or if they keep it for a whole turn, because if that's the case, it might open some interesting combo possibilities.

kurokat 30 April 2014 03:14
Hmm, that could be interesting. Though I'm not sure I'd want to give the enemy MP to catch up to me...

============================

*edit

Ooo, already thought of a combo with Filacia and Trank.

If her Spine Jet is applied on the enemy, this allows for extra damage but gives MP. To combate that it at least removes Hypermovement, so this can guarantee Trank can steal MP from them. Afterwards Trank does what he can to increase his lock while Filacia Rage Toxins the enemy to get its focus. Hopefully it then tries to move toward Filacia even with Trank next to it. If it does, it will either be locked, or it will move away, but have the MP it gained removed, so no harm there.

Gooo Plant Squad!!
