Wakfu is an official spin-off of the popular French MMO Dofus, published in North America by Square Enix. Set 1000 years after the original game, the World of Twelve has been devastated by floods, earthquakes, and tidal waves. The cause of the disaster is Ogrest, a creature that gathered the six Dofus dragon eggs and successfully defeated the gods. When Ogrest couldn't win the affection of his love Sadida, he went to the highest mountain in the world to cry, where his tears flooded the world. Now the player is one among many on a quest to restore the damage, eventually traveling to the top of Ogrest's mountain to stop his destruction.
As in Dofus, Wakfu is an MMO with a humorous and good-natured style, despite the post-apocalyptic story. Players created characters from one of fourteen classes, form a party with other players, and explore the World of Twelve. Turn-based combat encounters will monsters occur along the way, giving each player thirty seconds per move to keep the action flowing. Wakfu's visuals have received an upgrade, but maintain the same animated style and tone from the original that attracted millions of registered users.
While most features from Dofus, including guilds, professions, and player-managed markets have been carried into Wakfu, a few additions deserve special attention. Most notably is the inclusion of an in-game ecosystem. All species, both animal and plant-based, are not automatically respawned when killed by the player. To allow species to be preserved, players need to reintroduce animals and crops into the ecosystem where they can thrive. This is especially important for players whose crafting trades require non-renewable resources. A new alignment system orients players to ecosystems, rewarding points for restoring or destroying environments that unlock special skills.
A new citizenry system also takes prominence in Wakfu. Where the nation system in Dofus was really just an excuse for PvP, Wakfu's nations follow different laws that citzens are expected to follow. Following laws earns Citizenship points while breaking laws removes them. Players who earn enough Citizenship points can take on political roles, even to the point of being elected "Gouvernor" of the nation. Gouvernor's have complete control over international relations during their two-week term, allowing them to form alliances or declare wars. These decisions, in turn, effect your ability to travel the World of Twelve without being attacked by fellow players.
Most of Wakfu's content is available to subscribers only, but the unlimited trial gives players full access to starting zones as well as select professions and PvP options. A $6 per month subscription is all that's required to access all content, although the free material should be enough for players to decide if it's for them. Those who do give Wakfu a chance will find that it offers several unique features, a fun visual style, and an engaging gameplay experience.
