Wakfu Gameplay

Wakfu is a step-by-step MMORPG and Dofus sequel. One thousand years after the events of the previous game, players take on the role of the chosen one who should defeat a dangerous villain named Ogrest. Wakfu has many different classes, each with a different fighting style, and over 25 abilities with different effects. There are no standard knights, rangers, mages or clerics; each character has a unique skillset and gameplay. There are various professions in the game from Foggernauts, robot wreckers, to Xelors, time masters.

Even though turn-based battles are standard mechanics, such a combat system is quite rare in MMO. Still, Wakfu skillfully uses it, keeping the same classic MMORPG gameplay and adding unique elements.

The battle takes place on a tiled battlefield in turn-based mode, where players and enemies strategically use their moves to defeat each other. Wakfu world lives by the interaction of players. The dynamic weather system strongly influences the gameplay. The game has unique ecosystem mechanics: when you collect plants or kill animals, you will need to restore the balance by planting a new plant. You can either destroy the existing species or replenish them.

On level 15, players enter the political game Wakfu, join one of the four facts and abide by its laws. Also, every two weeks there are elections for the governor player. The choice is yours: decide whether you prefer to be a democratic, peaceful leader, or a brutal conqueror. The step-by-step tactical battle system allows players to create an entirely new strategy to defeat monsters, which will be the most appropriate for your tactical skills. Wakfu immerses players in a variety of adventures where they will explore many unique dungeons and perform hundreds of quests that will offer you a real experience as the main character. After all, you are here to save the world.

After all, you are here to save the world. While other games provide an opportunity to buy a house, Wakfu allows you to create everything in the vast open world. Join the guild and buy your little piece of the land to build and develop the way you want.

Every new player of Wakfu will instantly love the visual effects. Surroundings and music help you immerse yourself in the atmosphere of another world that is so perfect for a visual theme. The combination of beautifully hand-drawn sprites and the environment, high-quality sound and artistic direction make you fall in love with this world.

The Wakfu is filled to the brim with exciting characters and monsters inhabiting a wide variety of locations. The game looks so alive that anyone can see how carefully each sprite was created and how they work with the environment. As mentioned earlier, the design and concepts are so beautiful, and the uniqueness of these classes only makes them better, given that the different skill trees, the distribution of statuses and its tactical combat system holds for some very different playlists.

Wakfu fighting is like something most of us gamers are familiar with, tactical role-playing games. There are no random battles, and the battle outcome is determined only by the player's skills, including PvP (which also needs the consent of the second player). As soon as the battle begins, opponents move to a specific location with the battlefield lined on panels. It's where standard turn-based gameplay takes place.
