Can we use the new +AP Legendary Breastplate for 12AP build? Or it just like Bagus Shushu ring?

This Breastplate is the first among a new line of endgame items with exotic stats and no conditions.

The way characters are built will change with a soon(tm) to be implemented change to the core of builds (fortunately not a detrimental one!). More to be communicated at a later date.

It hits one billion from 174 to 175 in the current curve.

Still, considering the vast number of people able to accumulate billions of XP in a day's time, we level magnitudes faster than Dofus players of the same era.

Seriously. From 160 to 165 is some 2.5 billion maybe? That's more than 2/3 of 199-200 in Dofus which took people from months to years in some cases.

It's not bad here at all. But since the curve is similar, we can expect something similar as we approach the absolute end levels, just scaled upwards from Dofus.

The two can't be compared beyond their curve.

Hey mango.
The last time I watched your stream you were talking about becoming better at managing your wakfu point.
Would you still recommend using the level 125 major stat point on +2 wakfu points?

It's a preference thing. If you're smart with your WP usage and always on time when it comes to launching your execution, 6 WP should be plenty. I may do a segment later on about WP usage, but throughout all major aptitudes I choose against it, even opting for Control + Damage at 175 for additional trap set-ups.

guys, i m close to lvl 80 (free restat)
which spells fire/water/air (2/2/2) do u recommend me to keep maxed?

It's a preference thing. Your options are:

Option A: First Blood + Execution, Kleptosram + Bloody Ripoff, Forceful Blow + Wily
Option B: First Blood + Bled Dry, Kleptosram + Bloody Ripoff, Wily + Trauma

I'd like to open the forum to discuss potential builds with the introduction of Xelorium equipment. Since Obsidian Ore is broken I can't be arsed to work towards a Primitive Bli-Birch amulet or a pair of Passing Boots. I've dropped Tormented Helmet for Ancient Hat, picked up Withered Breastplate, and swapped the Relic slot as a Flaxhid Talisman. The breastplate supports the amulet without breaking 12 AP.



The current build is tri-lite, and while air damage has not changed much since my previous build at all, fire and water are much higher. I'm tempted to switch to fire-lite since I use air much more than fire, but that's only in PvM. In PvP, I use a ton of fire, and so I'm inclined to keep my current build air-lite.

I'm going to keep looking around at more item combinations. Most likely going to switch to Bygone Hand with Xelorium - Present, giving the Sram a 3-5 range slight AoE option of attack. Cheer Ring (30% tribrid) will probably replace Sprecious. Primitive Bli-Birch replaces amulet. Aiming for Breath of Life + Cartus Shushu lastly for the weapons for maximum damages.

Still up in the air about Thoughts vs. Genetically Modified Epaulettes so that I can use Passing Boots over Woboots. The reason to use Passing Boots is because of the absurdly high resistance values on it. Take a pretty tough hit in dodge though, that can be mitigated with stat points.

Luclock + Indestructible Boots preserves the 6th MP, and so does GKC with Woboots. But GKC is an HP deficit for only 50% damage over other options.

Regarding 12/5 gameplay, I haven't had much issues with it at all. I'm used to running 12/5 because of Happy Sram Kimono. In any case Sram has so many mobility options (giving MP or moving on the field) that I don't find the loss of the 6th to be a major hindrance. Still, it's good to keep a 6 MP set-up if possible. The move to a tri-lite build I figured would be a harmless one at best, keeping one damage the same while buffing the other two.

It was a patch attempt to stop Weak Points from stacking x4 when targets were on top of enemy entities on the map (e.g. an enemy Feca standing on an enemy glyph center, or an enemy standing on Foggernaut rail).

It will be fixed soon(tm).

Hi. Xelorium will be released on the 19th (Friday) with the opening of the Classic mode of the first dungeon. This last patch was just for laying the groundwork of the dimension.

Relative to the topic, a respec is likely to be issued. As to which classes, I cannot confirm (I don't know). Stay tuned.

then change the title of this post, is misleading... i just noticed this post was about that...

Friend, don't let your current state of ill-temper lead you blindly. Your original topic seemed to have gotten half-merged into this one somehow.

Take my answer with a grain of salt, and wait patiently. Incessant bickering will unfortunately not cause your respect to come sooner.

The only proper explanation I can give is that every Wakfu region has its own distinct, personal, marketing team that makes decisions based on what they believe to be the best, pending the time and place.

Everything will be done to make Iop as feasible as can be in high level content (since the danger train does not end with Xelorium, after all). I promise that the Iop revamp will be nothing short of amazing.

If it's any word of faith, I was originally a Iop main and [exit3d] is a Iop main in both Wakfu and Dofus. You guys (Iop players) have nothing to fear.

Don't know why you of all people are more or less defending Mango since he's trying to use his closeness with the Devs to take the CM position from the current CM of APAC.

I don't know where this is coming from. Becoming a CM is one of the last things I'd actually want to do. The opportunity had already presented itself as well. Merriden was spot on that I don't have the patience for that kind of real life job. [CM]Renommus is a good friend. I prefer working with him, not over him.

What an odd rumor.

Wtf...

Mango there will always be haters man don't ever let them get to you and as far as those who don't want spoilers well they shouldn't be watching videos on how to do something in the first place. There are those of us who greatly appreciate people like you who do take the time to figure the mechanics out and save us the time and frustration of having to do it ourselves. It's not like you not posting how to's will stop others from posting them so you're not taking anything away from anyone by posting your videos.

There are many (mysel included) who were hoping you would take up the challenge to post the HC Flax run because we'd love to watch you do it.

Seriously man don't let someone giving you a hard time stop you from doing what you do and helping the community as a whole, you'd just be giving the haters what they ultimately want.

I already know there are a lot of people who don't like me or the things that I do, and I've come to terms with that many months ago. It's not a bother anymore. But in this instance, picklesaregood wasn't trolling as much as much as challenging something he found very unlikely, which is understandable given the encounter and the claim. I don't blame him.

Not publishing a video of my strategy is a personal decision. Not publishing detailed strategies for the new bosses is an external request which I found to be understandable given the nature and outcome-of-release of the last few bosses (cleared and understood in a very brief timespan by many).

There's now a one month buffer period between an HC/Raid release and me streaming them, to allow people time to get acquainted with the battle themselves first before referencing the in-depth mechanics and suggested compositions/strategies.

I don't need to prove myself to anyone. Especially someone so callously rude when it comes to things I do for both the community and for my own entertainment (streaming).

@Agosta: I wasn't using Butter as an example. He uses a different composition, and was unable to show a sub-12 minute HC Flaxhid (though he comes extremely close, and I'm sure he's probably done it on many occasions without realizing it). I am able to because instead of a tank, I use an additional DPT. A player from Remington has achieved sub-9 as well, but I don't know his composition. In any case, fair or not, we've already established that most things that I do aren't quite something for your average player.

I thought it would be nice as well, if I shared what I was working on, which is actually relevant to this topic.



Finally, honoring a personal request I've decided to take down my videos on HC Vertox, and won't be doing a tip compilation thread elaborately detailing mechanics for HC Vertox, HC Robowl, or the Raid Boss like I did with Srambad and Enurado Divine Bosses. I understand that doing this was unfortunately taking away from the need to have other players discover these mechanics on their own for the first time, and also greatly diminished the possibility to monopolize on an opportunity for being able to figure out these mechanics on your own. It took away from the collective mind's need to conquer these fights either together or individually, and instead allowed most people an immediate chance in these fights before they were released.

In the same light, there's no need for me to share how I personally approach HC Flaxhid to your advantages or need of some proof.

[omitted]

I will leave the Classic Robowl video up, and of course there's nothing I can do about viewers who had the fortune to be able to watch me tests these bosses the first time and have a leg up on this content already. Good luck to everyone in the Xelorium content, and happy farming.

I don't understand the point of making another ap BP. It's redundant with Happy Sram Kimono already available, which majority of players don't even want to use. From 140-170 we only have 3 options for Tri BPs: Empelol (140, legendary), Happy Sram (155, epic, no mp), and Souleater (160, relic).

Hopefully they realize this and correct it like they did with Orgasmik BP before september update. There's a huge hole in tri gear in that slot.

Because it's a non-Relic non-Epic item with an exotic AP.

As long as your account has been created in the correct region, you'll be able to use that account to access servers of that region.

When you return to SEA for example, you will not be able to use your Nox account to access servers other than Nox and Remington.

My route is specifically what it is. My route. Doesn't work perfectly for everyone. For me, with two tribrid Cra at level 160 (and certain other classes I use for a p-level comp), it gets the job done fast. I do the last 35 levels at HC Flaxhid now (~10 minute runs at 50-80mxp a run). Only depending on the class do I do the last 20 levels at Srambad (the classes that can actually do the fights in under 15 seconds such as Sram, Sacrier, Enutrof, Iop).

The last character I leveled up with my route (modified with HC Flaxhid, otherwise the same) was Pandawa. 1-160 in 27 hours.

• Mango
How do you do the HC flaxhid runs so quickly?

Early diagonal set-up in the front end with a Pandawa that acts as both a lock tank and a position reset. That has to be set-up in the first turn of play. It's a little harder now without the old Milky Instinct to absorb blows. My party is double Cra (fifth and sixth position), Pandawa (first position), Foggernaut (second position), Enutrof (fourth position), and Xelor (third position).

There is supposedly a well-regarded player on Remington that completes the encounter in 8 minutes. Sub-10 is difficult but manageable in maybe 3/10 runs (otherwise sub-12 is more likely). It often depends on whether or not the non-instance challenge is doable or not.

The important takeaway is to have a very strong AoE team that can set-up and immediately begin clearing away at the mobs and boss if necessary.

Then what is the magical reason why they were not changed before?

Failure to rectify the problem initially and not wanting to retroactively go back to change it after it was already implemented, angering players. Picking strictly between the two, what would piss you off more? If the item you were gunning for magically costed 50% more tokens after a random hotfix or knowing that new content that you haven't already dumped a load of effort into will be adapted to be tougher (but correct)?

The Hero system won't make it any easier to token these items than regular multiclienting. When Heroes complete a dungeon, the tokens all go into their respective quest item interfaces, not the main character. Perhaps Sidekicks will though, since Sidekicks don't have an active inventory. But I don't know anything explicit about that yet.

Epic items also now yield the correct amount of Rune Powder, instead of giving you the same amount as a Relic item.
