Devblog: Sadida Kingdom

Update 1.66 is revamping the Sadida Kingdom. But it's more than a revamp: It's simply an enormous amount of work on a new island. Greater and more sophisticated, the Sadida Kingdom pays tribute to the WAKFU animated series.

Our Aim


Green, imposing and royal: The Sadida Kingdom is an iconic place in the World of Twelve. In the series, it is Princess Amalia's cradle, but also the source of conflict in Season 1, where the first battle against Nox takes place.

Our underlying goal was therefore to make this iconic place as great again as it deserves to be.

We've made a lot of changes and introduced many new ideas.

This involved to strong cooperation from a graphic, game design and level design point of view. We thoroughly overhauled several aspects in order to give this island a strong identity in the game.

A lot of thought was clearly put in around the Transmedia angle. From the television series, we wanted to be able to adapt the fauna, flora, history and atmosphere of the Sadida Kingdom so as to remain as faithful as possible to what already existed. This means you can find the Sadida village, the royal palace with its throne room, the military HQ, as well as Amalia's room, but also the prison and many other places fans of the series will be familiar with.

You'll find:

  • Four new zones:
    • The Boowolf Clearing
    • The Web-Entangled Hill
    • The Deforested Forest
    • The Gerbean Galleries
  • Four distinct monster families, including two new ones
  • Four related dungeons
  • New resources
  • As well as new NPCs
 

Four New Distinct Zones


The Sadida Kingdom is divided into four distinct zones that are home to each of the four monster families (including two new ones), and therefore four quite distinct environments with four dungeons.

We want how these zones are constructed to be coherent within each segment of the island. Adapting what's in the series and possible ways of interpreting this in the game therefore had to be in harmony with one another.
 

Arachnees and Boowolves

They already existed in the game, but the Arachnee and Boowolf families have been completely overhauled to integrate them into this new island more easily, both visually and in terms of their design, combat mechanics and characteristics.

This is especially the case for the radioactive Arachnees, which didn't necessarily fit with the environment of the Sadida Kingdom and the new identity we want to give it. This means you can discover them in a completely different form!

Gerbeans and Bubourgs

You surely must have seen these adorable little monsters in the series. Now you can find them in the game as well.

Adapting these families to the game resulted in research work regarding the story that might be told and the impact each of the two families could have in the game.

Clan Masters


The Clan Masters have also been overhauled according to the new zones in order to strengthen each one's identity. One by one, each in their own way, they tell us a story.

But hush! We're not going to spoil it all; we've got to leave a little suspense for you to enjoy when the update is released… We can't wait for you to set foot in this signature zone of the WAKFU universe!

 

Enjoy the game!

Oh man, don't take the phosphorescent/toxic/radiactive equipment away, it's possibly one of the best-looking equipment pieces. We already lost the epaulettes with one update, don't let them fade in oblivion too.

So, better collect it now? The new Enchantment system still sucks and if you don't have spare to reroll in future it would be regret till oblivion.

Good bye my nostalgia about that place too. 
Any news about sidekicks revamp/rebalancing? Sidekicks are heavily outdated. And yeah, some rework touch for sadida class wouldn't hurt either, atm it's a messed up useless/boring class that's either spamms dolls (annoying) or useless (LS doll-less build) with one of the worst revive spells in the whole game, if not the worst.

Let's take a look at the data, 4 new zones, 3 of them pretty much tell you what you will find there so all that's left is the deforested forest and the BuBOURGs. And who do we know that was interested in the forest wood. And what BOURG do we know? (That's not an enutrof joke btw). I'm going to guess that count HareBOURG started his wood gathering plans early and has some neat machines sent out for us to scrap.

You know too much.

Now I have to disembody your characters with my neat machines.
