First step after downloading the game is choosing your class, there are 15 unique classes, all with distinct abilities and style that distinguish them from other classes and provide a different experience whenever you play. As in any other MMORPG your goal is to fight monsters, gain experience, find items and in the process help rebuild the World of Twelve in this fantastic adventure.
Wakfu has a pretty unique layout, the game world is divided to many small platforms that you can move from one another using portals. There is a nicely detailed map wherever you go, and you can also place markers of your own to help in your travels. There are many characteristics you can increase in Wakfu which are divided into three categories: Principal stats, which add damage to your abilities according to their type, Battle stats which come into effect during combat and Secondary stats which add a variety of bonuses that help while exploring the world.
As you level you gain ability points in order to increase the attributes, but not all of them can be upgraded through spending points but can be gained from your equipment. Except from the common abilities that are shared among all the classes, each class has a unique set of specialities at their disposal which can be upgraded with points gained each level. In addition, each class has access to three types of elements, each has five different spells you can use while different classes has different spells, even for the same elements. Your elemental spells gain experience points and level as you use them in battle, so no need to spend points there, although you can increase one of the principal skills in order to increase the damage of the correspondent element.
All of those features bring the amount of customization in Wakfu to new heights, allowing you to develop your character the way you want and enjoy the diversity in this massive multiplayer game.
In order to initiate combat, simply click on the monster and choose fight, you can fight multiple opponents at once if they are in close proximity. First you need to position your character on the battle grid and the battle will begin. Combat in Wakfu is turn based, each turn you have a certain amount of movement points (MP), action points (AP) and wakfu points (WP) you can use during the battle. Each ability you use consumes an amount of those points, while usually AP are used for normal spells and WP are used for special actions. After finishing your turn, the opponents or your team mates get their turn until all the enemies are dead. The combat system is pretty cool and has a strategic aspect when choosing which skills to use to maximize the effectiveness of your points.The spells leveling system works well and is really intuitive as the more you use a spell the better it becomes.
As in other MMORPGs, defeating an opponent can yield items which can grant you huge bonuses to your stats, there are plenty of items, but there are very little junk items which is a nice change as you don’t fill your inventory with useless items.
Wakfu also contains some cool features such as a profession system that contains several types of harvesting and crafting methods to use. There are guilds, different weather effects, you can interact with many things in the world and help the different clans that inhabit the ecosystem, you can mint your own coins and go on dungeon raids to gain some epic items.
Wakfu is a pretty special MMORPG, it has a unique style with a fine skill system, plenty of spells and customization and a huge interactive world. Although the graphics might seem a bit childish, the depth and variety of the game makes it into a fun game that can provide hours of game play even for the advanced gamers.
