Newly introduced equipment that doesn't have any set bonus should compensate for that with better stats. Capes without AP, breastplates without MP, equipment that has special resists instead of all resist should compensate that lack with other advantages. At first i thought you write about the Bilbyza items (of which i think that many of them are quite bad) - i also find it hard to imagine people were criticising the Wabbit island items. They made me stay hybrid instead of dumping my build, cause they finally introduced good water-fire-items.
The only bad thing about this letter is, that one main problem of wakfu isn't mentioned. The whole PP issue of which is spoken under every news post here: It's insane that, as an Enutrof, i have to fight non-bosses with as few party members as possible, cause it raises my chances to drop equipment.
For a long time i thought the best way to tackle this would be to raise the drop rates. But some posts ago another solution was shown: Equipment-drops from normal mobs should use the same mechanics as mat-drops and all boss-drops do. And the maximum PP-lock should be 600 instead of 800, since wakfu parties can only consist of 6 players and not of 8, as in Dofus.
Also, the reintroduction of tokens is something Ankama should consider. Time feels so wasted if you spend 5 hours in a dungeon and don't get the loot. With tokens people could at least see a little advantage.
The whole thing is especially hard at small servers like Amara. There are many thing nobody will ever sell. So you have to drop the stuff on your own. And if you don't have enough accounts to do the dungeons solo, you gotta have some very patient friends, who ignore their own goals to keep accompanying you on hour-taking dropless dungeonruns. At first there is fun but that fun fades if you don't get a tiny bit closer to your goal (as with tokens). And in the end, some subscriptions will end.
PS: Pls merge Amara with Remington ._. - the german community doesn't even get this letter translated (but all the stupid korzmaster-tournament-news). Translating all the content while doing 0 merchandising is just wasted money. The server is getting more and more empty and the people start playing other games. If Ankama really is interested in german players money then please, transfer our characters to Remington before everyone plays Final Fantasy XIV und Guild Wars II.
