The beta version of Update 1.73 is really coming together as it enters its final test phase. You can learn all about it right now in a new devblog article! Let's take a closer look at what WAKFU has in store for you in version 1.73…

As you know, our guiding theme since update 1.72 has been all about scrapping, brawling and fighting. Demonic Pacts have either filled your pockets with kamas, or emptied them (for once). You've grown tougher with each epic battle, you've refined your fighting techniques (or your running-and-hiding skills – we know our players well!)… And now, you're all ready for the next stage of your adventure!

Improvements to Demonic Pacts

A number of changes have been made to generate more events, conflicts and fights. By adding more depth to these mechanics, we also hope to limit certain "ungamerlike" behaviors. As you hunt your enemies (or run away from them in abject fear), you'll blend in better with the environment… but will it be enough to escape the Shushu Prison? Think twice before signing your pact: Are you shu-sure you want to risk facing the Shushus?

Changes to Battlefields

Confrontations between nations are becoming more strategic and more important. Each week, defend your territory or try to capture an opposing nation's territory when a battlefield opens. Together with your friends, and now with your heroes as well, take part in wars that will combine territorial conquest and heroic duels, with up to two hundred and forty characters on the battlefield! Form your team of four characters (or fight alone, you can handle it) and earn the glory and honor of your nation if you win, or moogrr dung and public humiliation if you lose…
