In this Devblog, Azael tells us about the origins of the Almanax and how it will be implemented in WAKFU. As you will see, this new content will completely change your daily life in WAKFU!

The origins of the Almanax

Hundreds of years ago, Magus Ax, eminent Professor of magic and divinatory arts, asked himself the question if days could be protected by higher beings.
 
If months were governed by Protectors, and hours by Daemons, what about the days? Someone must have been taking care of the days and the events that repeat each year! But who?
 
Magus Ax explored the Krosmoz and found the answer on the Astral Plane: the keepers of the day indeed existed, and were called Meridia.
 
Meridia were hand-picked by Xelor himself. Each one of them had special powers and personalities, influencing the day they were bound to. That’s what we call the Meridian Effect
 
Magus Ax decided to gather his discoveries into a book he named the Almanax and stored it in a place called the temple of scriptures.
 

That’s what the legend says. It was a long time ago and could have just stayed a children’s tale… Until today!
 
The clan of Destiny is about to bring back and old temple from the DOFUS Era: the temple of scriptures, the one where Magus Ax himself placed the Almanax.


Ingame effects

From September 18th, the Almanax will be available in game. But what does that really mean for you?
 
Each day, a quest matching one of the Meridia will be offered to you. You will only have a day to complete it!
 
It will trigger automatically upon connection and will automatically be monitored in a dedicated space on the side of your screen.
 
Feature in development, not yet translated.
 
Since these quests will only be available one day a year, and therefore the players will have to log in regularly if they want to see its content, we decided to make them accessible and easy to complete.
 
Each quest will reward you with an “Almoken”, a specific token for the Almanax giving access to exclusive items. It’s the same system as the Bronze tokens for the challenges, or the dungeons tokens!
 
Feature in development, not yet translated.

These can be bartered in a machine that can be found in the temple of scriptures, in the north of Astrub.
 

Many items can be obtained this way, from a single candy to lvl 100 weapons, but also insignias, an exclusive pet or even books about the Signs of the Doziak.
 
For the most motivated that will collect 365 Almokens, an ultimate reward will be available: an exclusive mount!
 
Yes, that’s right! You will have more information about it in the future.But fFor now, you’ll have to be patient!
 
The Almanax is a new way to experience the game on a daily basis with new unique gifts that will reward the efforts and persistence on a short, middle and long-term. Whether you log in once in a while to complete daily quests and earn a few Almokens or want to collect all of them to get the best rewards, everyone wins!
 

Interface

A new “Almanax” button will appear in the compass on top right of your screen.
 
 
The Almanax interface allows you to get many information about the story of the Meridia of the day, a reminder about the daily quest and information on the Protector of the Month.
 
And that’s not it: you will also be able to access through this interface to the complete list of rewards for the Almanax. This list will also be available at the temple of scriptures’ machine.
 
If you’re the planning type, note that we will have a complete section dedicated to the Almanax on the upcoming Krosmoz website. You will also be able to access this content from the WAKFU page.
In this section of the Krosmoz website, you will not only find information about the Almanax quest of the day, but also the next 7 to come. Enough to plan ahead!
 
Now you know everything there is to know about the Almanax! The complete discovery of its content will have to be your own achievement, every day, by completing all the quests that we prepared for you.
 
See you soon in game to enjoy this new feature!

Could be interesting, but not really something I look forward to, let's say it's a little something more to do every day.

Regarding the mount reward, sounds good, but don't end up like in Dofus where mounts took the pets role. I know there's no informations about mounts yet, but better safe than sorry.

So did I get this right. Even if you miss days in Almanax you can get Almoken each day as long as you do the mission for the day? After year is over you can redo same quests each day and get Almokens from same missions you finished last year or you have to do the quests you missed last year to get 365 Almoken?

The temple will be in Astrub, so - quests will be available for f2p players too, I think

Yes, you get an Almoken for each daily quest you complete. After a year, you can repeat the same quest, and get another Almoken.

Quests are available to f2p players.
However, some will require you to interact with Islands or Nations, which you will not be able to do on a f2p account.
In other words, f2p players will receive all the quests, but not be able to complete all of them. Which means it will only take them a little longer to gather enough Almokens for their reward.

Will there be daily bonuses for completing each quest like in dofus?

I bring new Information for Ankama. It's hard to understand , I know, but people actually have a life besides playing wakfu and Dofus.

Daily quest, 365 days logging on? lool


People study, people work, people have family to take care.
Maybe edit this ideia?

You don't have to do quests everyday. Maybe you missed that part?
