Beta Server Update

Beta Server Update The coming months will provide a lot of new content! The Divine Dimensions of course, but not just that... And since the majority of the new content are some of the most requested features, you may start expecting them as well!


Starting Friday, June 13th, we are offering you to test the full Srambad dimension, it's Boss in it's Hardcore version and the addition of a minimum level required to enter a dungeon.

But especially we allow you to get your hands on previews of the substantial advances that may well emerge in the future in WAKFU:
 
  • Reconnecting in combat: you're not dreaming! Our developers have worked hard to develop a first draft of this functionality and oh so requested feature!
  • Inter-character account chest: this is another feature that has caused much ink, and you will finally be able to test it.
  • First step towards the mounts: YES! the mounts!! You will be able to ride the World of Twelve on their back... or almost.

To connect to the Beta server, just make sure to download and install one of these versions of the Updater:
You will then be able to access the Beta server normally via your login and password as usual. 

All of your characters will be imported with your Sidekick to the Beta server as they were on Thursday 22/05 at 9:59 PM GMT / 5:59 PM EST / 2:59 PST. 

Attention: Please note that this server does not give you access to the interface gift, or the Boutique, or to Krosmaster and that it is reserved to our subscribed players.

Also note that changes to your characters on the Beta server will not be reflected on your original server. In addition, since it is a Beta server, all the content is to be noted as being under development, we may have to restart/update it at any time

Please keep in mind that the contents of this server is subject to change and further balancing, and doesn't necessarily reflect the final quality of the content present in-game.

Finally, we invite you to share with us any feedback on unique topics that will be created for this purpose with more infromation, in the forum category "Beta Server". We also invite you to report the various bugs that you may find here (while of course using the usual bug report template). We will also keep you updated on the time of opening of the Beta server.

Thank you in advance for your participation and happy testing!

Why were these things all kept secret for so long!
If they all work well, you'll make a lot of people happy.
I dont think you hear this often, but nice work, Ankama

The minimum level on dungeons seems like a good counter to power-leveling, will this result in better exp yields in 2-character group combat? (its probably the most popular means of playing - friends / partners / solo multiaccounting)

Because if you fill in the else statement for this:

you get the answer.

We all are well aware of this community and its complaining style.
Not saying I never did it like that. (I started going crazy twice when my ticket was ignored for over a few months (3 and 6 if I recall correctly)). Just saying they made a smart choice.

How can we have them?
And if mounts are coming drago-express system should change

DragAudi TT - +60 HP +60% Movement Speed
Mac'Drago Laren - +60 HP +100% Movement Speed

Yes, they follow you like pets and they take the pet slot. The difference is that you can mount them.

While the update is nice although some aspect are well over due. Why am I only able to stat only 1 mp and 1ap without the option of stating another? The character growth is becoming more and more linear soon we will be all using the same builds, make it so we can invest 3 range if we wish 2ap 2mp is ok as it is i guess.!

This sounds very good. Almost enough to calm my anger over support.

Reconnection system is much needed and overdue. Very awesome.
The account chest is another very helpful sounding feature.
Mounts? Well I am interested in having mounts, but I swear something was said about them not being touched this year.

I really hope Beta testers work out the kinks and we can have these new features soon (the first especially). Perhaps this will be the time I test it out myself.

I would like to say that I hope bugs will be a huge focus for the team going forward. I would rather wait on content and have a functioning game. The reconnection system I applaud very much though. A lot of bugs and issues cause the disconnect and this is a step in the right direction for a more fluid and less frustrating experience. Thank you for addressing this issue.

It sounds like you would wear them while traveling, not in battle.
I can only assume the hp would be so when you switch back to pet and you regenerated health, you'll be at full life. Or it has something to do with their usage like powder/pet food?
I don't know how they work. Oh now I'm just too curious. To beta!

WOW!!! Ok, if half of this functionalities are working, I retire everything bad I ever said about Ankama. I know, it's not for now but, it's on test already... and I am surprised as ***** ! Congratulation Ankama developers! Nice work!

This is the proper link. Ankama keeps using the broken link with the '"' symbol at the end :p

Account shared chest? Wow finally we will be able to trade with our alts without troubles! I just wonder how will it work for people who have their chests full on all characters... item wipe? Rollback then? Or would that be another slot in chest? Or different chest? Curious.
