Outdated name, youthful mistake, lame wordplay or just feel like changing? You can now rename your characters in WAKFU!
It’s now possible to change the name of your characters in WAKFU! This service is available once every three month, for a cost of 2800 Ogrines.
Visit this page and choose the character you wish to rename. As soon as the operation is complete, you can log into the game and connect the chosen character: a new window will pop up, allowing you to choose a new character name. Please note that there will be no way to reverse the change!
This offer is only for 3 months!!
Although I understand your point, there are also other reasons for players wanting to change their names. Most important of these is probably the issue of old players selling their accounts, in which case buyers would be stuck with old names & reputation. And of course, there's also some instances in which a person/character has a miserable reputation without having done "something bad" and just wants to start anew. Or, even if it might be a tad unlikely, I suppose it would be possible to get tired of your char name, too.
Anyway, I'm just happy they're making these changes! It might mean that they will implement that awesome option to change hair & cloth color in the near future. Yay!
