Starting the game
To start the game, double-click on the “W” icon in the WAKFU folder, or use the “Install” shortcut on your desktop.
Once the updater is running, the game will update automatically if a patch is necessary. If you like, you can do the tutorial while the game is updating. Use the little flag icon to select your language, then click the “PLAY” button to get started.
The chat window allows you to talk to your friends and other players, receive important updates about what’s happening on your server, and view a log of the spells that you, your allies and your enemies have cast in battle. Advanced options allow you to communicate in private, sort your messages, and check how many players are currently online.
Just below that is your Wakfu/Stasis gauge, which indicates your alignment. Each act of creation (planting seeds, introducing species, etc.) earns you Wakfu points, whereas acts of destruction (killing animals, chopping down trees, etc.) will generate Stasis points. Finally, the Citizenship gauge measures how active you are as a citizen of your Nation. You can find more information about this in the Politics section.
During fights, your Action Points (for casting spells), Wakfu Points (for casting certain powerful spells) and Movement Points (for moving around in battle) are also displayed here.
At the top right of the screen, you’ll see a picture of the area’s Clan Member. If you click on the three little icons underneath this picture, you can find out more about their wishes concerning the ecosystem, check the weather forecast for your crops, and see details about the Clan Member, including their name, profession and more.
