They’re coming, and they’re about to change your gameplay experience forever! Multiman is a sidekick system that allows you to control one or several characters in addition to yours! A super-bonus for those who play solo, a new way of dominating dungeons for guilds – a little revolution in WAKFU! And it's coming December 10...

The Multimen are the first characters to introduce the sidekick system to WAKFU. When you call them, Lumino, Skale, Krobax, Trank, Beelzebug, and Shadow will leap to your aid, under your direction! And this will just bring a fresh new way of experiencing the game, and develop new strategies.

Who are they?

6 Multimen, 6 Dofus... you do the math! These Vigilantes are hybrid creatures created from monsters and the magic of the Dofus. Ereziah Melkewel created them:
  • Firefoux + Ivory Dofus = Lumino
  • Red Scaraleaf + Crimson Dofus = Beelzebug 
  • Shark + Turquoise Dofus = Skale 
  • Crobak + Emerald Dofus = Krobax 
  • Treechnid + Ochre Dofus = Trank 
  • Ereziah's Shadow + Ebony Dofus = Shadow 
Each Multiman also has his own powers. You'll know more soon...

What is a Sidekick exactly?

A Sidekick fights alongside adventurers, is controlled by the player and counts as a character during a fight. Note that they won’t be usable in PvP.

Sidekicks can be equipped with all the same gear as a player's character, with no restrictions besides levels.

A character can control up to two Sidekicks at once in a fight.

The Sidekicks win experience but can't become more powerful than your character.

Sidekicks can be exchanged between players via the Marketplaces.

How does one acquire a Sidekick?

The first Sidekicks will be the Multimen. You can obtain them on the Boutique or via subscription offers.

In order to first be able to test a Multiman, you will get to test them for free ingame. The multiman available for free will change each week, and allow you to test Lumino, Skale, Krobax, Trank, Beelzebug and Shadow one after the other, if your account has a running subscription.

A seventh Sidekick will be available entirely for free ingame: the Astrub Mercenary! Getting him will be easy; you’ll only need to complete a quest in Astrub!

How to get them

Beelzebug, Skale, Krobax, and Trank:
The elemental Multimen will be sold separately in the Boutique starting from December 10th:
  • 5800 Ogrines each
  • 9000 Ogrines for 2 Elementary Multimen
  • 14000 Ogrines for all 4 Elementary Multimen
The “Light” Multiman will be offered with 6 month subscription (additionally to the usual gifts).

The “Darkness” Multiman will be offered with 1 year subscription (additionally to the usual gifts).

Why not asking us in a Poll like in DOFUS?

The Sidekick feature will be quite different in DOFUS and WAKFU. We chose precise acquisition means that would better fit what we have in mind for the game. Also, development of this model is already well advanced and modify it now could have a direct impact on the quality of the content.

Don’t forget that you’ll get the possibility to test this feature with the Mercenary of Astrub, and the weekly testing available with the Multimen.

Oh, wow, I was expecting a very similar system to the Dofus one. Not only do you have to level them, but they will also need gear. Hope Sidekicks can also drop loot for you, and that they can be as strong as characters due to these requirements.

What about the Ankama Office video?

You can see the first episode of Ankama Office on the DOFUS website:

We didn't publish it here as it is more of an introduction to the poll published on DOFUS, and therefore not applicable to WAKFU.

It works like subscription gifts. It will only apply to new subscriptions.

So, there can be up to 12 characters in a fight?

If you read above, you will notice it says they count as a character slot in a group. So no, only 6 characters in a fight.

No, the Sidekicks will take one character slot in a group.

So you can still have only up to 6 characters.

Wow this seems really awesome.

Finally something useful for us solo accounters and just generally people who don't have an amazeballs computer and a ton of accounts smile

Just curious, the Free Trial ones, will the equipment we put on them disappear after the one week rotation is ended?

Right, so that Ogrine thing was OK. Sure, you were trying in your own special way to make things fair and spice it up. But this is over the top. Not ONLY do you not provide a poll (Dofus even has both Wakfu and Dofus team members suggestions, why can't we?) but you FORCE us on Wakfu to BUY them! On Dofus, either way, you will get at the very least ONE sidekick (The Dofus ''Way'' means you get two FREE In-Game via achievements, which I see as viable for Wakfu). Wakfu's team member (Azael) wants you to BUY them ALL (You get one COMPLETLY random non Multiman releated Sideckick instead. Whoop!... NOT). Why NOT give us the option? Because Azael dosen't want our opinion? Because he KNOWS we want the cheapest but funnest and interesting option? I'm trying my hardest to contain my mixed emotion. I saw the title and thought: ''Oh cool, another poll! I hope Wakfu gets some cool options too.'' and came here... I really hope they think that through, and not force us. Ankama is treating Dofus like a superior, in some cases it may be, but you have to think of both communities and games opinions. If you offer a nice smooth option for one playerbase, why not the other? Its blasphemy! angry I'd prefer... ''Poupik'' s option any day! If you guys haven't seen his/her proposal, please check it out. You won't be happy. There is also a funny little animation/slideshow about your comments about things such as the Ogrine system, made me LOL! So sorry for this wall of text (generally pure hatred... sad ) and hope this won't get invisied or whatever you call it. Thanks again for reading this.
