Like any GD worthy of the name, Tonio is a Gamer through and through who plays games like DotA almost every day. You’ve probably heard urban legends of a guy who broke up with his girlfriend to finish Final Fantasy©, right? Well guess what… it was true!
Don’t be fooled, despite his shadowy past, Tonio is quite the people-person and a real sweetheart - they say his shoulder’s been cried on more than any other! Truth be told, he even went as far as to pose in the buff for a school fundraiser... Now that’s dedication!

This week’s Dev Hour features Game-Designer Desty.
Desty is a young man with a secret… who hides in the shadows. He wears black clothes, has extremely long hair… and lives in a dark, secluded place, where everything is black but for a single lonely Xbox.
Where others would have a video game or card collection, he has a series of dolls… He lives surrounded by hundreds of these strange and exotic dolls…
Figures… Well. We shouldn’t be too fast at dismissing the games… He did get a degree in “Game Design and Video Game Production Management” after all! Have to admit, that’s one class you’d be happy to wake up in the morning for.
All sites, games and mobile Ankama applications will be unavailable from 7:00 AM GMT+1 until 9:00 AM GMT+1.
This service period will allow for an update of our databases and core code of our servers to improve their function and to prepare for the arrival of new features.
Thank you in advance for your patience!
- Premium Pass (5,000 copies available) - take part in both days of the convention and get a bag of collector’s goodies.
- Day Pass - enjoy AC #5 on the day of your choice.
- Accompanying Pass - for those who simply want to accompany their children. For each Day Pass or Premium Pass reserved, you’ll receive your choice of one of the following two pets: the Snow Bow Meow (DOFUS 2.0) or Walk (DOFUS 2.0 and 1.29). Check out the bag of collector’s goodies provided with the Premium Pass: A Snow Bow Meow soft toy, a Goultard phone strap, a Frigost mini-artbook... and plenty of other surprises to come! Brrrrr...! Sends a shiver down your spine, right? And this is only a taste of the frosty atmosphere that will descend on Paris, April 17 - 18... Find out more on the official Ankama Convention #5 website.
The laws of physics were broken and an additional 850 accounts were added to the Closed Beta. Everyone who had played at least once since December could now find their way back to Amakna.
Check your emails, you never know, you might be one of the chosen few!
The beta’s doors will be closed to new players as of Wednesday January 20, 2010. At this stage, it is difficult for new players not familiar with the DOFUS/Wakfu universe to grasp the final concepts of the game and have a global idea of what the game will be like in its final stages. That is why we decided to close the doors of the beta for the time being, until the game lives up to its reputation! But you need not worry we will not block the current Wakfu community! Those of you who have been with us since the beginning, who have been with us through the ups and downs – you are more than ever welcome ingame! You will still be able to connect to Wakfu after Patch 0,210 on January 20th if you have an active character today. Our desire to build a game for you and with you hasn’t changed! We will endeavor to work with you in that aspect and will continue on to collect your feedback and impressions on the game’s evolution.
Do you remember those silhouettes? You would have seen them on the old dofus.com website... They’re the new subscription pets. As promised, they arrive on December 15th! Have fun guessing what these new pets’ characteristics could be... You’ve got the weekend to think about it... These 4 new subscription pets will be fully revealed early next week! Have a good weekend!
Rushu and Rykke-Errel win a weekend where experience will be multiplied by 2.

All 22 servers win a weekend of free, unlimited access to the Dreggon Dungeon. The date of the weekend will be determined by the results of the following poll: click here. All players who recovered an Eggshell or an Enormous Fang (and there are plenty of you!) will be able to exchange these items for their individual reward from an NPC that will appear at the site of the fountain in the destroyed village on the Dreggon Peninsula (coordinates [-4, 25]) after the 1.29.1 patch on DOFUS 1.29 servers. Dungeon Races on the DOFUS 2.0 test servers: All players listed below will receive a gift on the day DOFUS 1.29.1 goes live. They will be able to give this prize to a character on a DOFUS 1.29 server or on a DOFUS 2.0 server, according to their preference!
Players who made the shortlist for several dungeons will receive multiple copies of the reward! The reward is a follows:
- A Sting Pet!
- A selection of very rare hats so you can look beautiful in DOFUS 2.0 (Pepitoo’s Sombrero, Goultard's Headgear, Galgarion's Helmet).
- A candy giving +100 Wisdom.
- A candy giving +100 Prospecting.
Let’s use the opening of the server to review the history of the NPC it was named after: An incorrigible gambler, a rare thing for the Pandawa race, and also blind, Zatoïshwan possessed such a reputation that even the biggest disciples of Ecaflip feared him. Struck by lightning one day, he was given a revelation by the Goddess Pandawa: he could control the ancestral art of Pandawushu. For a while, he was a righter of wrongs, but he eventually reverted and became the most-wanted robber we know today. For NL community only : meet your community on Aermyne server!
