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.

Well, this guy first helped me with contacting the "support" after my hb wipe case, then ignored me when I was trying to get any help after "support" directly lied to me about fixing it. For me his + and - deeds as CM even out, so I guess this makes him and his leaving neutral to me.

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.

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 . (I know that this isn't how A.I. works, but that's how it looks

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.

Look at the cactus that reflects..that's how bramble armor should be

I really really want the totem back and they have to make it 100% of target's hp. Not sure I like the totem to summon under us, it's better how it is at the moment.
Imo it would be better to just have high shield value with no reflect at all. This reflect is only making me not want to use the shield on allies to not fail challanges such as "do not make enemy suffer earth type dmg" or "Focus".

OK, but this is problem with challenges, not spell itself. If you say leave it only as shield, then the dmg that sadi's shields should be doing to be comperable to feca's shield could be turned into additinal hp value. For example, if shield would supposed to be made with 100hp and deal/reflect 50 dmg, make it have 150 hp instead.

Gust - remove per turn limit.
Earthquake - if failed to inflect damage. Remove the spawn point.
The Block - increase block or steal block with the spell. Increase MP by 1.
Doll Link - + 1% redirected damage per level of Lone Sadida.
Knowledge of Dolls - 20% chance to return 2 WP instead of just 1.
Lone Sadida - Always + 30% per turn and is then stolen by dolls instead if within 4 cells.
Gust - with two "gusted" ultras and 11ap build it would be possible to push something by 7 cells, inflicting dmg and poison by doing that. Seems too strong, but with current ridiculous costs of summoning+teaching of ultras it would be more than balanced, pretty UP actually, at least for kiting purposes. Unlimited gust would be quite cool for support though;
Earthquake - great idea, but max 3 casts per turn would still be crippling for this spell anyway. Maybe your idea+1mp cost+ removal on friendly/self fire (no enemy damaged)? I would also limit self damaging for green guard trigger, which all sadis use and all despise at the same time .
The block - it would be still of little utility. Maybe spell (with cooldown) changing targets block into -final res (-2%res per 10block?) would make blocks useful?
Doll Link - looks great, full lone sadida + self brambly would make 35% reflect (10%+10%+1,5*10% if I get you idea right). I'm assuming that you mean current voodoll redirecting, not pre-revamp doll-sacri redirecting.
Lone sadida - stolen by dolls?

Idea on bramble armor:
Fecas' earth armors deal damge during creating (by atacking the opponent). It makes sadi's armor missing a lot in comparison, since it doesn't do any reasonable dmg. To compensate this, brambly armor could have higher reflect damage rate when self-cast (currently it is 10% I think). Of course, ap/armor hp and ap/dmg/reflected dmg ratios would have to be balanced with differences between feca's and sadi's armor in mind.

Great, provocation "fix". You can remove the pvm aspect of this spell at all now, "provoking" of mobs works so seldom that it is mostly useless. With this "fix", feca becomes first (and probably, only) class that has speciality useful only in pvp.
Too bad that A.I. reactions to provocation are not getting fixed, but it would be too much for ankama, rigth? Doing some actual work instead of sweeping under the carpet.

I am using Ultrapowerfull dolls in PvM, usually when enemy have high water resist (so basically any enurado monster). I use them also if i can't do anything better then sending the No-LoS attacking doll to reach enemy. Also i use them when i "try" to stack -resist for my next turn.

The point still remains though as its too costly. Every single target spell cast on seed should refund its full cost, or the seeds should be removed and we should have instant summoning of dolls.

And i agree we need to control dolls by default.
Discussion goes about summoning cost, but what about air summoners and "teaching" the spells to the ultras? Whem my sadi summons I'm using ultras in 80% cases. Most annoying thing about them is that they "know" sudden chill as an effect of summoning, therefore "teaching" them this sepll is free, but if I want to summon an ultra with other spell, cost gets ridiculous. It makes spells other than chill worse for such kind of use, despite they may be weaker in terms of dmg or utility than chill. Can't see any logical reason for such discrimination.

Sorry if this issue was mentioned before, I skimmed this topic and only post about ultras I've found was the one I quoted and the one you answered to.

Regression to the mean, look it up.

might as well research Gambler's Falacy too.
OK, it is the point.
But, sometimes it gets really strange.
I've been running wa castle a lot (for about 5 months I think), and dropped 10 wobot boots and 0 wa cwowns. Afaik, both these items have same drop%. (and I'm still stuck at wa beacuse I decided I will drop this crap even if I had to reach lvl 200 there, and not going to sub until I get the damn cwown)
Back in the days when ambassador dun was new, few guildies and I decided to drop the (then) awesome necro cape. We did loads of runs to no effect. After ridiculous amount of runs finally it dropped. Then it dropped again strangely soon. And another, and another. Each next in earlier than the first one.
Yea, yea, I know about perception falacies. It's just hard to keep staying sceptical after so much strange first hand experiences.
Besides, I have so little trust in ankama that I'm ready to believe anything.

op please consider using some punctuation marks and paragraphs because reading long text in one monotonuos gramatically confusing stream is hard

Joy to Key not smooth enough? Strange, I'm using it since I began playing wakfu 2,5y ago, I can't recall any delay problems. I'm using mouse for movement/aiming, pad for spells, yes/no popups confirmation, ending turns, health bars display and a few shortcuts (eq menu, map, mount, teleport of scriptures).
I doubt that mouse for movement can be replaced by controller, joypad's analog sticks aren't precise enough imo.

For me, xelor seems to fit what you are looking for.
Medium/upper medium range - check - spells are medium, but thanks to dial you have big reach of movement to cast them at higher range;
Easy soloing - check - dial allows you to confuse mobs at low/medium levels thanks to good movement. With tactical use of field objects you can solo big mobs while staying out of their reach (at lvl 16 I once killed ~80lvl group thanks to piece of fence that happend to be sticking out of map border).
Not expensive - this might be a problem, all classes are expensive if you want them to be at their peak, and all are cheap if you can cope with having lesser eq. Maybe pure tanks are better since they don't need to focus on dmg as much as others.

If you won't like xel, try fire or fire/earth rouge. Range similar to xel, soloing relatively easy thanks to great aoe spells with solo+distance damger best friend: -mp debuff on strongest spell, also you can make sort of fire trap damaging enemies while they step on it (using fire before you get to 9ap might be bit hard though).

Provocation a.k.a. The Feca Seduction Spell!!! Rating 10/5 for Group PVP, 1/5 for PVM, 0/5 for 1 v 1 PVP

This is one of the most forgotten spells of feca, but is the most powerful at group PVP. Most Fecas would overlook this spell due to its uselessness in PVM.

If the target is an enemy player, it would reduce his dmg by 50% if he attacks your allies. Of course full dmg to you if he chose to attack you… thus the seduction spell. What’s more is.. it only cost 3 ap!!!

For Group PVP = 100% Max this spell out no questions asked.

I keep finding myself amazed with each example of fecas dissing provo for pvm. Really nobody haven't noticed that spell description is wrong and 50% dmg cut also works against mobs? Best spell for boss fights!

Other thing, I'd suggest mentioning about drip armor multiple recasting trick for avoiding multiple locks. Many newbies might not know about it.

As much as I wonder why nobody knows about pvm provocation, I wonder how could I did'nt know about "under the feet summon trick" with staff glyph for self buffing before dripping it to ally. Thanks for enlightenment, very useful stuff for my tank/support feca.
