​ Today we will talk about an improvement that has been long awaited: Nation change!

This Devblog will introduce you to this new feature and its implementation in the game.


Migration?



Join friends, access unique monsters or bonuses (without having the worry about wars and politics) or only save the poor nation of Sufokia, these are some of the reasons that justified the idea of implementing a Nation change feature in WAKFU.



We decided to translate this idea into the game with a repeatable quest, available from level 30 at all Nations Ambassadors in Astrub (you know, these guards asking for your passports).



For a small Kama fee which hasn’t yet been decided, but should be around 25.000 Kamas, you will immediately change your Nation and see your Citizenship Points reset to zero.



You will then be free to start anew in your new home, clean of accusations and past misdemeanors (if you made any troubles before, that is).

 

Repeatable?



If you read thoroughly the above, you’ll have noticed that the Nation Change quest is repeatable.



In other words, you will be able to change Nations several times if you so desire, and if your wallet allows it. Note however that changing Nation constitutes treason against your former Nation, and trust is not so easily won back. Therefore, you will only be able to repeat this quest 30 days after the previous completion.



This limitation should also limit migration between Nations that could have devastating effects on the game.

 

A new Boutique service



To those of you who prefer to save their Kamas, Scrolls of Allegiance for each Nation will also be made available on the Boutique. Their cost hasn’t been decided yet, but you will be able to purchase and use one every 7 days.



I hope you’re looking forward to this new feature as much as I am, because I have to say: Bonta has been tempting me for a while!

... since when is 25,000 Kamas a small fee, especially for a level 30 character? I played this game for a long time (from the 0.2 Beta to a few months ago) and rarely had more than 40-50 kamas at a time. I'm not even sure I had that much. Even the most expensive items in the market didn't cost more than 200 kamas, and I couldn't even begin to afford those. 25,000 kamas doesn't sound like a small fee to me.

Or was I wrong in thinking that you were using European notation, and you really did mean 25.000 (i.e., 25) kamas? I could afford 25 kamas.

Or did that "monsters will drop kamas now" update really cause THAT much inflation to the point where prices are now literally tens of thousands of times higher than what they were? That means my character has gone from "dirt poor" to "dirt? I wish I could afford dirt".

You are aware that the Kama system recently got revamped and all Kamas got multiplied by 30, also all fights drop Kamas now?

25000 really isn't a lot considering that you should not be able to spam change nations.

Yes, I'm aware.

I'm also aware that 50 (the most money I ever had at one time) x 30 is much much less than 25,000. I also know that 200 (the most money I'd ever seen anything sell for in the markets before the update) x 30 is also much less than 25,000.

So if 25,000 is now considered "a small kama fee" or "not that much", then that means there's been a whole lot of inflation since I last logged in, not just 30 times.

"Small" was either an unwise choice of terms or sarcasm. Either way, such a big game-changer like nation realignment needs to have a hefty price in addition to a time limit in order to prevent abuse (or reduce it, since someone always seems to find some way to exploit a system). 833 kamas with the old system is roughly equivalent to 25000 with the new system if 30 is used as a multiplier, which isn't an impossible or implausible amount to work toward, but it isn't pocket change, either. The same logic is behind the huge material cost for the repeatable respec quest, since that, too, is a huge game-changer.

Wait, what? Are you saying you never saw an item on sale for more than 200 old Kamas?

Then you didn't look very well.... Even before the revamp items cost up to 20000 Kamas.


A nation change shouldn't be something trivial that you can just do 3 times a day. It should be a big decision and frankly less than 1000 old kamas is not a big deal, you can mine that up pretty quick.

Yeah, finally... Bonta to me is overpast! All the population are children that don't even know how to start a fight in the game! I'm thinking in changing to Sufo or Brak!
Well, for that "SMALL KAMA FEE" I'm getting many hours here, in the computer, mining to get this!
