Hundreds of computers for gaming, testing areas, chances to rub shoulders with the people who make Ankama what it is, it'll all be there! But there will also be surprises and entertainment, gifts and novelties! The Ankama Convention is always a special moment in the year and this 6th edition promises to be fabulous!

If you want to preview the Rogue Class, you have two options: be a premium member and begin your Rogue adventure on January 18th, or grab a ROGUE PACK. But what is the Rogue Pack? Well, it’s one month’s subscription bundled together with a digital download of the exciting new Remington Comic in English. When you buy this pack, you’re also offered access to use the Rogue class on your account beginning December 15th! Christmas has come early!  

December has just started and your Christmas shopping has begun! Starting today, and throughout the month, you’ll receive a free Iop Strap with every order on the Ankama Shop website*!

A few months ago, we announced imminent changes to the account security system, and now it's here. We are asking all players to re-certify their accounts. How can I re-certify? By choosing a new secret question and - most importantly - associating a cell phone number with your account. With an associated cell phone number, you can have your password sent directly to your phone without the need to certify your identity with support. Why are we doing this? After an increase in the theft of kamas and equipment, we wanted to develop solutions to fight more effectively against these types of account abuse. The first step to a secure account is always prevention, be smart! By following these three golden rules, you can protect your account from the comfort of your own computer chair.

  • Do not lend your account to anyone. Do not share accounts with anyone. Never give away your password.
  • Maintain good virus protection and scan your computer regularly.
  • Do not buy kamas or any other DOFUS goods from non-ANKAMA sites.
If you ever receive a link from someone in the game that seems suspicious, you can consult our list of trusted ANKAMA sites. Click here to re-certify your account today!

As you may know, the Rogues are invading DOFUS on December 15th! Do you want to become Roguelike? You'll have to slip a Rogue Pack into your pocket. This Pack contains one month's subscription to DOFUS and our first ever digital download Wakfu comic dedicated to the famous Rogue "Remington Smisse!" As if that wasn't awesome enough, the Rogue Pack includes access to the exclusive preview of the DOFUS Rogue class, starting December 15th! Now you've received full instructions for becoming the first Rogue to set foot on your server!

Be prepared!

Big surprises are in store for you in the next season of WAKFU the animated series, and even more  are coming to theaters! The Odyssey of your favorite WAKFU heroes will be splashed across the big screen in 2014 with a feature-length film, currently under development in Ankama’s studios. If you are a fan of DOFUS, an animated adaptation of the game’s rich and fantastic adventures is also being created for television and film, coming in 2013.

Ankama has chosen a 5 stars partner for the launch of its coming MMORPG: the renowned game publisher Square Enix! The company known for titles like Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy will present the tactical game with turned based fights to the American players. Wakfu offers the same tactical turned based fighting system as DOFUS, as well as the same 12 characters, and also stands out with its evolving ecosystem: your actions will have an impact on the environment! If you kill a monster, the species might disappear, if you extract a mineral, the resource might die out. You will be able to choose if you want to protect or exploit a natural resource of your environment! Wakfu is on its way!
