The Protoflex is the new Sidekick that you can choose to have by your side starting with the next game update on March 18th... But who or what is this Protoflex? Where does he come from? This great robot of a new era…
In view of some characteristics reminiscent of the infamous Sire Flexington which gives it its name, this machine is clearly carrying the Foggernaut signature, as said by the Foggernaut archaeologists. But not like the Foggernauts which are now roaming our streets and fields.
No, the Protoflex, is a creation of the "original" Foggernauts. It even seems that they date precisely from the time when the Foggernauts were separated into two factions:
- On one side those who continued to believe in Oktapodas, and accepted to live their lives with nothing more than a body of flesh and blood.
- On the other side, the Foggernauts we know today, those who have mastered Stasis and created mechanical body to receive their conscience and prolong their lives.
Then come the questions that all sciencemages of the World of Twelve have been asking themselves:
Is it a prototype of our Foggernaut mechanical ancestors, or is it from the other Foggernaut faction? Is there "someone" in this complex mechanic? A ghost in the machine? Why were there so many Protoflex? Are these war machines? Are these receptacles for Foggernaut "souls" that haven’t got their "receptacle" yet? How does the Protoflex repair itself? What is their source of energy?
Nobody dared try to take apart an “active” Protoflex, and the rare damaged and inactive “specimens” have almost nothing to give to the "experts" even when disassembled and examined from every angle. The only thing that is for sure is that they do not work on Stasis, as their contemporary "counterparts”.
Remains one last question, raised by a protologue now renamed Asiic Amivos, a question which scientists are afraid to find an answer: Why does an activated Protoflex “links itself” to a person and protects that person, even to the point of jeopardizing its own "existence", as if following some kind of rule, or laws, maybe even the laws of the prototic?
All this still remains to be discovered...
EDIT: How do we get it?
This might get interesting..... hopefully it won't be a crap class with a simple story
On the other hand, I think the new addition will be immensely appreciated by all of us players in the game since the more the more fun it is to play apart from occasional bugs. Keep creating fabulous things Ankama and Wakfu Crew because you have the skills of increadible people and have so many ideas that probably not even half of them are put into this game. LOVE YOU ALL!!!
Soooo much this^^
I want a new sidekick with these features. To make up for the quackquack nerf... I believe the new sidekick should look like this:
