The Stats for the Set-Bonus where taken from the Set pieces since the last item update (except UB-pieces).
In other words: parts of a set where weaker than normal items of the same level and rarity if you didn't wear the full set.
Now you don't need the complete set to profit fully from one item.

It's rather the opposite of a nerf aktually.

Rollback incoming!
Click here

In short:
Because too much items got lost, they are forced to do a rollback to the close of servers this morning (9am).

They want to solve serveral problems/bugs related to havenworlds and trade.

We might get a compensation.

The servers might reopen around 20:30.

So Spain, Germany and Portugal is the Entire planet? I must have not paid enough attention during my geography classes.
She named these countries especially because there are also spanish-, german- and portuguese-speaking Communities and Wakfu-Servers. The structure of the sentence is missunderstandable, it doesn't necessarily implie she considers them as the whole planet.

Nice to hear, let's cross our fingers it will spark a lot of interest.

First of all: Good decision to introduce a mode which makes attacking those with no interest in PVP less attractive.

But i fear we've got to expect some rankoriented PvP-players which don't find enough victims to cause massive havoc in the nations (with or without alts), to lure those caring about the ecosystem to agress them and thus activate their PvP status and form a simple source of merit.

Even more, some if not most members of multinational guilds which found together through their common interest in the ecosystem can't stop parasites and griefers anymore.
A "unaligned" guild state which allows to activate PvP independent from the players nation, maybe with a penalty to merit gain, would help a lot here. If the gain is just reduced, not completely prevented, this would generally be a good alternative for multinational guilds with members with interest in PvP.

40.000 guildpoints are a heavy price for smaller guilds. Scaling the price with the average amount of members in the last month would reduce the imbalance between guilds of different sizes.

In my eyes calling the non-allied Nations enemies is rather unfortunate. It implies a far more hostile state than it causes in fact. "Rivals" would be far more fitting in my opinion.

Additionally to citywide(all bridges & Astrub) group-seeking, trade and recruitment channels i would prefer a boardlike group finding tool and a separate one for guild recruitment which can be accessed from everywhere. The tradechat should be limited to areas with marketplaces, to avoid too much abuse.

I once suggested the public politic chat to be nationwide, including a checkbox with the full typed message asking if you really want to blast your writing to all members of your nation. The channel should be reactivated if not turned on in at least one tab after every election, in my opinion. It's currently extreme hard to reach the populace.

Regarding spam, an additional temporary ignore would be helpful here. Just until you end your Wakfu session. So you don't have to overload your ignore list with people which you barely meet and care about.

Btw: Currently the government-only and the public politic chat have got the same colour... do your math.

(The picture above is a perfect example of wrongly used addons, even the standardUI swallows far less space. And who is fighting with an open inventory?)

Are we in agreement that Compulsion is a vastly superior skill to Precision? It's literally twice as good in the long run.
I agree with you that an Iop gets far more for his 100 points than a Ecaflip in regards to these two talents.

But Iops have three univeral damage talents (Compulsion, Authority, Show off). Ecaflips four (DoQ, Tarot, Die, Precision) plus Roll Again, Bow Meow and Flealine Army. For me it isn't surprising that a Iop damage talent grands more +% than a Ecaflip one at average.

Regarding popularity you should differ between reachable and non-reachable talents, most Ecaflip damage talents come with a cost, Precision is one of the Ecaflips strongest and doesn't.

Isn't it useful to compare them, though?
Well, not if you're looking only at one talent.

Aside from Precision you can get up to +200% for fire, 2x +40% at a positive card for earth, +80% for water if you're using flees regularly and up to +50% critchance(!). Not to mention Double Or Nothing and the bonuses from Tarot.

Next to Compulsion(+40% damage) an Iop has got preparation (up to +100% for the first attack) which is dependent on the rest of the team and might (up to +100%) which he has to build up an renew constantly.

Regarding raw Percent, the Iop might be slightly better of, but with a bit of luck the Ecaflip can reach extreme deathliness, not to mention he might attack effectively from distance and has additional abilities to avoid damage completely.

I know both and an Iop definitely strikes hard, but Ecaflips own far more versatility.

And yes Precision, like Compulsion, is most relevant at the beginning.
(100+50+50) / (100+50) = 1.333 VS (100+400+50) / (100+400) = 1.1
An additional +50% increase your final damage far less at higher levels, since their portion decreases.
If you're ignoring resists. While hitting a target with high resists, the importance increases again.

Also I'm getting constantly logged off when moving from the main page to the forum section, does anyone have the same?
Yes, and it's extremely annoying if you're using several tabs.

I also don't like the new forum design and expect it's just a mistake or temporary solution.

Where to go:
You'll start in Astrub, should do the questline there and then either join a nation(around 15 if i remember correctly) and visit it, where you might do the next quests in the outpost, afterwards feel free to discover the nations. Alternatively you might visit Zinit first. A island with a rewarding questline.

What to keep:
Good Question. The most valuable items for a fresh starter are bigger bags, i think. Otherwise: Boss specific drops might be more valuable on the market and rarer items.

Item rarity(from common to rare):
grey, white, green, orange, light yellow, purple

Interesting jobs as a newbie:
Chef 25 for ken-ko, a consumable item which allows you to revive other players.
Baker( up to 55): with bread you can regenerate HP outside of fights a lot faster.
Farmer: To get the nessecary grains

But what do you mean with that:
" Rule of thumb: your main element until you reach 30 - then 1 AP instead. Afterwards many go for an extra MP or Range. "
Every class has access to spells of 3 elements, 5 for each of them. Most players use mainly spells from one or two of these elements. I suggest to put the points you're getting with every level-up into the matching attribute at the beginning - instead of keeping them to buy an extra AP which is quite costly: 150 attribute points - exactly the amount you've got with level 31, a nice choice after your free reskill with 30.

AP: action points (symbol:blue Star), they are needed for most of your actions/skills/spells in battle.
MP: movement points (symbol: green running humanoid), give you the ability to move during your turn in battle and are also needed for some spells.

Your skills can't go further than your current level. But you can't loose any spell experience, it's either distributed to the other spells you used in a fight or stored and added in a later fight.

There are several ways to get items: they drop with a rare chance from enemies, can be crafted through jobs from materials the enemies left behind and are sold in havenbags or at marketboards.

Welcome in Wakfu!
First of all: This is a Sandboxgame, so there isn't any specific goal. You aren't guided around by any kind of leash, but need to choose you aims for yourself. There are some questlines in specific areas, but mostly it's up to you to find something you like to do.

Will you improve your equipment or characters fighting abilities? Do dungeons with friends or a guild? Improve your skill in professions? Care about the ecosystem? Join politics? Become an outlaw?

Take your time to discover everything and enjoy it. The're isn't a second first time.

Regarding your poinst:
You'll be able to reassign them with level 30 for free (48 realtime hours limit once you've reached it), so don't worry to much about them in the beginning. If you're unshure, look into the class forums, you might find some helpful information there.
Rule of thumb: your main element until you reach 30 - then 1 AP instead. Afterwards many go for an extra MP or Range.

Quote (Troyle @ 11 July 2014 11:40) *
Regarding the forums, it’s actually a mistake; the German forums should have been closed with the website.

Now a little note about our vision for the German community: I know we’ve been saying a lot that we have some plans, and we really do. There would be no reason for us to keep saying that if this wasn’t true. I can’t say anything yet, but we should be able to bring you good news before the end of the year.
When this “plan” begins, we will bring back the German website, forums, and make sure to have all the resources needed for proper Community Management, Communication and Customer Support in German. Until then, we prefer to keep a low profile on the German market.

Don’t worry guys, you’re not being forgotten!
Hello Troyle, long time, no see.

Please don't remove the germanspeaking forums without a warning. Give us at least the Chance to rescue threads which are important to us (Guides, Tutorials, Roleplay, stuff like that). Thinking they where gone as well was quite a shock.

The start in spring 2012 with a sword of damocles over our head ("The server will be closed if the community doesn't reach 30,000 accounts until september.") was, let's call it, unfortunate. But Mascha-Chan gave us the feeling that there is someone who's really fighting for us, constantly caring for our issues and worries. She even spend her free time broadcasting a weekly internet radio show for and with the community. Since she's gone, Amara feels abandoned to die.

Even a low profile leaves a deep mark running the same route for a long enough time, don't think it's easy to erase that with a shiny restart. Those which left Wakfu will look into other games and might spread the word.

I'm not really convinced of tri-elemental ecaflips. Fire and Earth aren't different enough to justify spreading the spell experience to such a degree, in my opinion.

All In with low AP is rather ineffective, the true strength of this spell is the chance to double damage.
Don't underestimate Rough Tongue, it's your only heal for targets which are not standing 3 fields or closer to an enemy. (Aside from the single target version of Flea Love, which needs WP and 3 rounds of preparation.). It might also be a alternative to Battle for close range situations.

Regarding specialties:
You're missing Tarot if you really want to include earth. It's far less dangerous than in earlier days and improves your earth spells considerably. With Flealine Army you need to do some water damage every round to keep the extremely slow growing bonus intact. As a ranged you might consider the Bow Meow, since she improves your earth damage with every positive Tarot card and increases your winning streak after critical fire spells.
