I like your proposition.

On the issue of guides, many new players will ask for guides. There are already tons of guides out there. Most of the time the problem is finding it, the search function on this website is works really poorly, so you can do is use google "search:wakfu forum" to do your searches.

A criticism of new players, they will say things are outdated when they do not have no where near sufficient knowledge to actually judge if someone is out of date. The whole point of a guide is to take what knowledge you want from it, so even an outdated guide can be used as a good reference.

I am also reasonable confident I could find you a guide on pretty much any subject.

Gapa's video is rubbish he says the quickest way to be then takes about 10 turns.

This one is much better. In my video I beat the fight in 4 moves.

My video also provides a full written tutorials in the description.
i still love you
I love you too even if you trying to steal views of me which you currently dont need.

I will summarize my reply to MariCat
Firstly, you have been talking about voice chat servers general but in the context of Wakfu it makes a lot of sense to use my teamspeak as real and working example of a voice chat. I understand you have not used it and are not familiar with it however much of what you said when applied to my example becomes incorrect I never said you have put the two together.

The server is well moderating, there is no spamming or trolling people that do get instant and permanent bans as you can not accidently play really loud music and join teamspeak . People who do not have the microphone set correctly get forced onto push to talk or server muted until they fix it, if they dont fix the stay muted. Why should everyone else suffer for one persons laziness? watch a youtube video to set up mics its easy. There is no obligation to use microphones or listen to others, the main thing is to communciate with players if you or anyone wanted to type only on teamspeak that is more than acceptable as some players already do it.

All I am saying is that there are some people, who (I know they don't do it with bad intentions) are way too active about calling other people to join TS.
Thats great stuff. The people who want to join will join, and the people who don't want to join, wont join regardless of how much it is advertised.

80% of my friends list don't use the TS server and I have to cry myself to sleep every night and nurse my butt-hurt.

Lyricalglitchen said "Voice chats seem to bring out the worst in ppl regardless of age or other factors." With the context of adding voice chat in-game ( I believe) a good example of this would be xbox live were trash talking is part part of the gaming experience at least on games like halo, call of duty etc. I have been using the internet for years and I actually enjoy this aspect. Someone chatting crap about you over the internet, worse things have and will happen to me. I agree the wakfu client is not suitable for in-game voice chat.

Last post.
I agree with much of what you said.

You do not have to be a extrovert to use teamspeak. The arguement I always use is, I will assume most of us went to school, college, work etc. we had to intertact with tons of people on a daily basis. Chatting with a limited amount of people in the privacy of your own home seems far easier by comparison.

First I am not providing a wall of text for goodie points but as information on things that I have done in the past with mixed results. So you can learn from mistakes from this fool I also care a great deal about this issue of recruitment I have also spent considerable time and money to address this issue. I don't like people quitting over the fact they couldn't find anyone to play with in this MMO.

A brief history of recruitment with JerryDB
In 2013 looking at the problem of recruitment I made a guild alliance solely about recruitment and at its peak it had 23 guilds. It had a private voice server mumble and own website. It worked reasonable well however it was far to labour intensive on me and without me organising the groups people didn't team up.

I also was the only recruiter for Remington in 2013, what I mean by this is, people would ask me for people I would spam my friend list and relay the results with a decent success rate. People still ask me for groups today but on a considerably smaller scale, I think the main reason is people guilds populations are much better than they use to be.

After I retired the Guild alliance I made a policy of open recruitment, if people want help finding a group or information on the game join my teamspeak and I will treat people as if they were my guild members (good). When everyone is on teamspeak I can easily organise multiple groups at the same time. People can also easily organise themselves as well.

I have discussed the issue of recruitment with many players over the years.

I was playing around with the idea of a guild specifically for recruitment where we could throw in low levels alts and get groups for our mains but I opted for a public cross server teamspeak server.

I will also add we do not know when we will get :- (yes other people mentioned these as well)
GvG and alliance chat?.
Get further reaching localised chat?.
Get a efficiently working group finder?.

As these are finer features which would be added to a more polished game, I am sure they will add them at some point but when? people have had recruitment problems for years.

The other thing for me is I want solutions now my teamspeak server is 6 months old and works GG.

Final point, two topics dungeon runners for Nox & Remington are both pretty great sorry I don't have any links.

Here is an IIRC created for Wakfu. . I understand there could still be a audience for IIRC as well however like most things its need active users and people promoting it.

It is my teamspeak server, for me TS is the superior option. I can take new/random players to content they haven't done and easily over voice chat explain all the mechanics and win.
We reduce the grind of the game most through bantar.
My server has been promoted and various players, guilds, servers use it. We have a decent amount of people using the server.

What would be better is a group finder what would actually works.

To the OP:
I have been hearing for years people saying I can't find anyone to play with, IIRC and TS is a step towards solving the problem however simply talking to players and networking in-game is the way to go. If I can be on reasonable terms with multiple guilds leaders across mutliple servers anyone can. All I did to do this was, go to guild leaderboard, find the top 20 guilds. Go the alamanx and find some of their members then talk to the guild leader.

For example, I am level 110 eni I am currently looking to spam miss frezzie is there anyone in your guild doing the same or around my level? no. Well what level are most people and what do people mostly run? most players are lv 135+ and run blackspore and above
I see let me get a few levels and get back to you.

This is copy and pasted from my guide link here.

How to report a player
Player reports (and what happens to the player(s) that have been reported) are dealt with confidentially. You should receive a reply to confirm Ankama have received your report, but you should not expect to be told what will happen to the player(s) you are reporting.

There are three ways to report a player:

1. Contact support via the website.
  • Go to this page: Click here
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the “Send a message” button.

2. Contact Sabi or a Moderator via Ankabox. Mods have the “MOD” against their names in the forum.
  • Find a post by [Sabi] or a moderator on the forum.
  • Click on the little down arrow next to the name of the moderator.
  • Click on the Ankabox logo (which looks like an orange envelope with an arrow wrapped around it.)
  • Click “Send a message”.
3. Comment in this thread [ICT Hotline] Help! I need a moderator in-game! , which is a direct line to the MODs.

Your report should contain the following:
  • Time (including timezone).
  • Date.
  • Your forum name.
  • Your player name.
  • The names of the player(s) you wish to report. This should be the character name(s) of the player(s), and the account name(s). See below for how to find the account name.
  • Evidence of the violation. The easiest way to do this is by taking multiple screenshots. (The default button to take a screenshot is F12). Simply upload them to an image sharing website (like and include links to them in the report.

How to find a player’s account name

The can be found be using /whois command (they will be need online for this to work). For example, typing this into chat

/whois sabi

will tell you Sabi’s account name if he’s online. You must have the screen “game” text displayed in order to see the result.

The full terms of use can be viewed here.

Here is a guide to the political system.

Only the government can change laws, it sounds like you want to place eco-protection which a few government members could do, gov, vice-gov, ecologist. If you can find a tree ask some players OR go to another nation.

The eco is maintained by the players and such as in real life many are not bothered about the eco and just want the resoucres. For the government this is a never ending battle.

To give your opinion of the government press N, there should be a happy and sad face click on those provided you are p2p and voted in the last election.

On negative votes, yeah but you need the vast majority to do it.

You need to pick one Singles OR Doubles as any pvp tournament will last more than 1 hour.

You could have multiple fights going at the same time but specators can not watch all the fights.

The other main question is, what levels is the event for?. You said about pools but didn't give a level limit.

This game is way too fun to let a few rotten apples spoil it for you, especially when this happens so infrequently.

I have been attacking by my friends. I remember one friend he was role-playing as rogue and would kill me and my guild all the time. He said "pay me money and I will stop attacking you" I didn't take to kindly to this. So I killed him more than he killed me.
I found the whole thing rather amusing.

Be attacking affects you so little on this game it can be easily ignored now persistent harassment is another matter but from what you said thats not what you have here.

You shouldn't let other people stop you doing what you want to do (within reason).
