Lukinerx, why don't you just quit the game? Anything that ever comes out of you is straight-up complaints, and not even the constructive kind. You'd be better off playing another more enjoyable MMO.
Well, in my opinion time for constructive complaints passed quite long ago. Few first updates after wakfu moved from free beta to current paid beta were lacking, but it could be understood. Now, few years later, still LITERALLY.EVERY.EFFING.UPDATE is full of bugs. Still ankama is ignoring it. Oh how naive I was when today I thought tht guy who mentioned (in this topic I think) that xel past dun is kicking out after 12 minutes exagerrated. I thought that even if this is true, hotfix will be applied immediately (dun is unplayabe). Damn missis freeze dun got fixed after almost a YEAR. Fix of foggers spell bug caused stasis spells lvl drop below 20lvl - it is reaching ridiculous situations - fixes for bugs are causing bugs in the same area they were suppose to fix. And people are still finding new bugs.
Every update is making the game more and more coding-wise shitty. You don't even have to be coder to see it (I'm not). Before I quit I could run a dungeon two times on few accounts before framerate was forcing me to restart the game. Before this update I had to restart after one dun. Now I'm getting a slideshow on second room... "It's because of multiboxing" counterargument would be missing the point - multiboxing or not, code obviously is getting shittier, multibox is just making it more visible.
I quit near the beginning of this year, came back month or two ago, and on first dun run with guildmates they had to explain to me how to deal with new bugs.
I'm really surprised that players who for few years were witnessing the ankama's continuous failure at coding are still defending them.
Why "ranters" are not moving to another games? Because there are no another games of this type. Give me another FFT/Disgaea online and I'm gone in the middle of writing a "rant" sentece. We are stuck with great, unique game with terrible developers. After all those years, the best that could happen seems to be ankama going bankrupt and selling the franchise to someone who has any idea about developing mmos. Constant marketing foot shooting and trolling classes changes (xel and rouge nerfs are absurd, osas players seem to be annnoyed as well) are another problems of ankama, but they aren't nearly as bad as purely technical aspect of the game.
I get your point, lack of constructive input is not good, but what difference it makes when any input is ignored by devs anyway? Sure, there are bright points in updates, but those are getting bleak when you think how long it took them to implement them. Next update will as bugged as this one, class changes will be as criticized as those, no matter if you praise them for their "efforts" or constructively point out problems.

Anybody had problems with foggers' spells? I returned to wakfu like a month ago and levelled my fog's spells at dojo so they had max no-mf-bug levels (170lvl). I've been using motherfogger normally since then (175lvl now). Now all stasis spells dropped to 20-40 lvl. With the speed of exp exchange by locking other spells my fog is useless, because running any high lvl duns with lvl20 spells is pointless.
Ankamas inability to properly code anything is obvious here, but I wonder how rare is that bug.

Forget it man, ankama doesn't care about such things. Chat has bug with one of polish letters ("alt+" combination) removing all typed earlier text. It hasn't been fixed for about 4 years (seriously, it is not exagerration, it exists since free beta). Polish community ingame already got used to it, I guess you will have to stick to what you have at hand.

a response from tech support
I don't think that this has ever happened. Closest thing you will get at forum is "soon™" from CM. I seriously doubt if ankama's "tech support" even exists.
Your only hope is that this has happened to amount of people significant enough to make them include it in some of future "fixes".

While I am excited about the hero system, I prefer that Ankama takes their time and does it right rather than set a date and rush out a faulty product. Thank you.
They seldom set and keep date, they always rush anyway, their product is ALWAYS faulty. Seriously, LITERALLY ALWAYS. Thank you.

Anyway, I stick to my point that devs deserve more sympathy and support. If you feel that they don't simply because you paid them money then I really suggest you try and find a better MMO that releases good, fast, perfect content, and invest your money in that. That would at least help you to be less upset at an online game.
They deserved sympathy and support 2-3 years ago, during beta and early paid beta. Now they don't deserve any of those. 3 damn years and ankama's developing is still the same pile of shit.
Still EVERY.F...KING.UPDATE is full of bugs, still old (sometimes MONTHS old) bugs are in the game, still the game is shit on the technical side (RAM rape, random disconnections, infinite connecting - this reached absurd levels with guides on dealing with game's terrible performance appearing on forum), still communication with community is insulting for players (this letter is example), still lies/promises never meant to be kept (heroes are getting postponed second time, for the same reason), still no support (except money-related issues).
Nobody here expects "fast, perfect content". We expect content that is not soon™ for weeks and months and is not bringing more problems that game had before it's introduction.
Wakfu itself is great game, it is sad to see that it is being managed like that. It is like watching a monkey with a brush and paint, somehow creating a great picture, and then seeing as the same monkey starts throwing it's own shit at this picture, not being able to understand that doing so is not improving the picture from the point of view of others.

Xelor with water is quite hard hard to exp solo at low levels. If you find yourself struggling, don't think that it is because water/air is bad build. Numbers on spells are suggesting that it is at least decent, but those numbers are low at the beginning and rise slowly. You should be fine if you manage to crawl to 100-120 lvl, since then it will probably get better.
I'm using fire/air xel, but will do another water/air sooner or later just for ap manipulation gimmick which seems to be vialable thing at high levels.

I don't think your experience is an accurate statement of the Rogue class across the game. When your in higher end dungeons at lvl cap, you start to compare other people to you.

My lvl 169, 1250+ earth/air rogue truly lags behind many other classes at the same lvl. Though I'm better geared/runed than most of the people I play with, my damage is either on par or under. Not only this - but rogues don't really add anything to the team.

I stand by what I said. If earth/air is lagging, no wonder, it is missing basic gimmick of class which is bombs. Withot them you are forced to either shoot in incovienent lines (or use also incovienent boombot), or go cc which isn't good idea for class without much defensive features. If you are making iop/cra hybrid without key elements of neither iop or cra, don't be surprised when effect lacks usefulness in fights. My fire/earth rouge has weak eq, barely breaking 1100 dmg, and still is invaluable addition to the team in wa and hc sram. Enurado dun isn't much harder than sram. IDK about xelorium duns, but if those are reason why you say rouge is weak, then "I don't think your experience is an accurate statement of the Rogue class across the game". You are probably doing something wrong.

Rouge is weak in PvP? Eee, do we play the same game?
No, Rogues are very weak in PvP at the moment. In most match ups, Rogues do not win, in fact, they are even being outsped by most classes with Srams and Xelors breaking past 450 initiative. Burst damage took a pretty bad hit with the resistance revamp and with hardly any utility in their kit, Rogue has very little "outplay" potential.

If you compare a Rogue's damage output to a Fogger's, you'll easily see the difference.

Also, it's not a fact, what you posted is a fallacy.

First of all, I mistyped, first sentence of my post was supossed to be "Rouge is weak in PvE?" My fault of making confusion. As I said, idk about pvp much. Just enough to know that fogs dmg compared to any class makes clear difference, no argue on that.
People out-speeding you? Well, look up their passives. Xelor has 56 ini from passives if I remember correctly. Oh dear what a tragedy, 16 ini more, my class must be shit. For others, it is simple math, If you are slower than class that does not have more ini from passives than you, then it is your build/eq problem, not a class issue.
Personally, I think ini is wakfu's pvp system worst issue. Being first almost guarantees win in dd vs. dd match, which is stupid and one of reasons why I ignore pvp.
"Also, it's not a fact, what you posted is a fallacy." - man, I tried to suggest that what I have said is not based on my pondering on the class, skill/spell analysis, others opinion, improbable sitiational utility etc. I claimed that I'm doing well with rouge because I AM ACTUALLY SEEING AND DOING THIS when I play. Tell to the man looking at the sky that it being blue is fallacy because your ceiling is white...
And what it is about every rouge seems to be whining about using 2 spells from earth again and again? You can't use much more if you have hybrid/omni build of any class, duh....
Also, everyone (from what I've seen in various topics) seem to claim that their class is weak and srams and fogs are much stronger. Ok so they are, so what? Is this a reason to whine on every class? Suddenly everyone became near unplayable (both pvp and pve) because of two ridiculously pvp-op classes?

I think that maybe my rouge experience differs so much from yours because I'm multiboxing. Maybe beause of that I'm most often able to bring out any advantages classes have.
And don't get me wrong, rouges require revamp as much as all classes who didn't get "new" revamp. But they aren't nearly as bad as it is being suggested in this topic. You want to try class that really needs revamp? Try play sadida. Sadidas are sole justified whiners/ranters on this whole forum (well, maybe also cra's regarding pvp and iops in pve but revamp is coming for them). I argued with them about overreacting same as here anyway, I'd never expected that class such as rouge will get same discussion.

that sounds right. I think I saw that before.

I think it was mentioned in post announcing stats revamp.
BTW, isn't it funny how well all "math" information about the game is hidden by ankama?
Tons of near useless tutorials who can be skipped by anyone with the secret skill of reading, but cruicial information about game is nowhere to be found. Only options are digging through mountains of old revamps announcements or posts like this with hope that some other player knows the answer, because getting anything from ankama is unlikely.

Rouge is weak in PvE? Eee, do we play the same game? I have one rouge alt as dd in my team and another on the same accont with eni, I use him to clear fast easier duns. Both are earth/fire. Both elements work great. I always thought that if I'm doing so good with rouge despite it is not my main, then people who main them must be awesome. IDK about pvp, but in pve the last thing that can be said about rouge is "weak".
This is not an opinion, it simply is a fact because I can see it every day when I'm playing.

Drop rates, (...) false.

This is Basically the Monty Hall problem(in reverse)
You are failing to properly understand and picture how probabilities work.

Past events do not affect future ones in probabilistic terms, Unless there is a variable which clearly dictates that, in this case there is none.
This would be monty hall problem if we knew that all is really random. OP did not suggest some magic property of probability, but a asshole-ish property of game code. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't be surprised with ANY example of incompetence or douchebagery from the side of ankama.

Quote (celestialknight @ 19 February 2015 14:00) *
I think you are a bit confused on how drops work. Just because someone else drops a Relic on their first run, does not set back your chances of dropping one as if it were your first time trying. Its just statistics and sometimes people just have a lot more luck than others. I've ran Wa dungeon over 300 using all 6 of my own toons. Statistically I should be close to dropping a Nettlez, however I haven't even dropped a Wa Crown!!!! Wtf is up with this!???? But me not dropping one yet, has nothing to do with it being dropped by other people. My statistical chance of dropping one is the same as any other person.

On OP being confused, look above. On nettlez example, I get you point but nettlez itself is wrong example. It is one of relics that can be obtained only through fragments.

In general, I know about perception fallacies when it comes to probability (gambler, monty hall, magic thinking etc.), but drops in wakfu are really strange. With sample large enough, all % should be eventually confirmed. We just need someone patient enough.

As a pure tank feca user, certain lock/dodge bug is very annoying for me.
Mobs can ignore lock if they are "passing by" the feca without stopping next to him. Basically, if mob didn't start turn next to locker or wasn't forced to stop his movement next to him, it can walk as if nobody was locking him.
It is easiest to see at wa or srambad. Wa wabbit sometimes can get locked by staring turn next to locker, walk aroung a bit and then pass next to locker without any effect.

It is convenience.

-- Celest --
Well, generally I have to agree with what you said. However, "key element" is huge overststement. I can't even remember when was the last time I thought "damn, I wish I had a leveled trans now". I don't think I ever had need for this spell other than self-cast (self-cast makes levels moot).
On the other hand, coney heals are near useless anyway. I had leveled this spell quite long ago before stat system revamp when his heals were better % of targets hp pool.. Now, if I use him at all, I use him almost only as push stopper, mostly at said srambad dun (to stop dds from being pushed back while attacking and tank from being pushed by boss), at dragon pig (only to keep tank from being pushed) and as "passenger" for my feca teleporting (who cannot tp by himself)
Apparently, you points, while valid, do not apply to all gameplay styles. Coney doesn't seem to be generally usefull neither. In that case I'd advice newbies to level trans earlier than coney, but with low priority anyway.

sorry, couldn't stop myself

Agreed with two previous answers. I will just add, that for me, feca bings the most fun from tanking. Having 100block is relatively easy and this paired with awesome resists makes funny situations when dungeon boss hits feca few times doing laughable dmg, then decides "oh f..k it" and walks away despite the cost of leaving the lock zone .

In my opinion, for healer build best option is fire/water. For damger build, fire/air seems to be better. Generally, fire branch is great in both dd and healing, while water is healing-centered and air damage-centered.
I don't know good guides for water/fire. My general advice for specialities - massacuring mark - first priority, coney, regen, trancendence - last priority (in that order), propagator left at 0lvl. At elemental branches go for:
water - fortyfying word (4ap1wp) and invigorating word (4ap1mp)
fire - must haves: sadist and refund marks +one of three other spells, if you cant decide for now which one, go for hammle, additional mp for you or team is always good thing, plus awesome range.

I guess anyone who had to deal with some gamebreaking bug and/or got bitchslapped by support team wouldn't recommend Wakfu to friends. The customer support is literally one of the worst in existance, ask people around about their experiences.


Massive failed promises, tons of unfinished/abandoned content. New direction with eliotropes, bishie rivals and other ~epic~ stuff which honestly only a 8-12 years old kid would swallow.

This, so much.
Obvious reasons for old players, the new ones (post-steam, post-nosub) can't see it or even deny it and defend the game when those issues are mentioned.
