Having watched the Dofus cartoon, it did not neccesarely seem like Ouginaks were the source of bad luck. In fact, that role seemed to be placed on the Koalaks (probably misspelled). That Ecaflips acquire horrible stats from the Ouginak card is probably based on the whole cats vs dog stereotype.

With Ouginaks, instead of going Critical Failure, I thought it might suit even better if you focus the whole class on 'loss', and more precisely, dealing with situations where its clear others have the upper hand.

Ecaflips focus on winning, through every means neccesary (even cheating). Their happiness and strength seems to be measured around the concept of short-term success, and gambling seems to be their main to-go for success. I would think Ecaflips have a hard time dealing with loss therefor, especially when repeated.

Indie, in the cartoons however mostly has fulfilled the role of the 'loser', with Kerub always getting away with everything in the end. Despite that, he has shown tremendous perseverance despite continues setbacks - It's almost like being beaten simply fuels him as opposed to breaking him down.

Game mechanically you could have a character with mechanics revolved around things 'going bad'. Damage above certain treshholds, negative status effects perhaps even death (Let's try that again!) all instead fueling the Ouginak. A slightly less narcisstic Ouginak (unlike Indie) could perhaps even act as an effective cheerleader to support the team when massive harm is done. It would also look cute, and suit a model looking like Lou.

edit: Woops, seems I was not the only one heading this direction idea wise. Rock on Xander!

Tofukaze Tofu Not Given Hello there - A friend of mine and me both got the Tofu pet as a reward for doing Tofukaze, yet neither of us actually received it in game. Perhaps over time something changed or got bugged with this reward.

Anyone else having had similar problems perhaps?

Why not start watching the Wakfu cartoons - It might be the right bridge you need to make a final decision.

[...] not even here anymore, is im waiting to see if there is some included mechanic which makes it very clear that these alts are in the same category of use as sidekicks, and not intended to essentially give you a full tripple-boxing experience with no drawbacks.
And its been pointed out again, what of sidekicks? The sidekicks i bought and leveled just useless now?[...]

As of this time, no intent to diminish the stats or yields of the Heroes. A person playing a character with two Heroes will likely either pay the same fee or slightly less than someone running three subscribed actual account characters. One goal of this is to offer the multi-boxing experience in a more consolidated client. This should help those that are absolutely unable to multi-box (for one reason or another).

You'll be able to run a combination of up to two additional characters on a single account, whether the composition be all Sidekicks, all Heroes, or a combination of the two. This is for a max of three per client. I'll discuss the buffing of some Sidekicks to make them more worth it (some of the lesser seen at the endgame, such as Beelzebug for its damage, or others like Krobax and Skale beyond the fact that they're there almost exclusively for utility). Some of the other Sidekicks though are very potent in their current state (Krosmoglob being a AoE damage punisher, Virulent Treacherose being a powerhouse tank, and Trank being the most potent team tank in the game running up to 15'000 HP+ in a group).

If only Virulent treacherose was properly available!

On a serious note though: It might be a good idea to overhaul the older sidekicks to have 'more' abilities in a related way to the new ones, to have their utility becoming less overshadowed (no pun intended) by Heroes using their slots. I do agree that the dual-sidekicks at least contribute in unique utility more so than the stock sidekicks (with possible exception being Trank)

Very nice feature! BUT, this really diminishes the worth and use of Sidekicks. In my humble opinion, they should let sidekicks hop along for free again in a dungeon (without the use of keys).

edit: I wouldn't be surprised if this feature will only come with an even higher subscription package than the ones we have now, in which case multimen still hold a role as well (as poor man's choice basically

I must say that I am curious about the underlying concept of having exclusive content for communities individually - Should we be worried about a near future where full in-game zones are being added for one community exclusively just because a marketing department had deemed it so?

While I understand that Ankama is currently dealing with two different payment-structures for their game, there should not be a reason why content cannot be offered across 'all' communities.
All that the marketing team should handle is the pricing differences.

I would like to apologize for my ridiculous idea of having the baker becoming a subclass for the goddess Eniripsa..

As I have finally seen the light now, there seems to be only one true class concept worthy to hold said place - and they seem to be VERY related to Wakfu's lore and ongoing struggles: In fact, a great many of threats have been dedicated to them already:

The Baba Ji, Love Specialist

Mere wishing: Bakers would be a nice subclass, as we've already seen how 'serious' they take their business

In the cartoons we've seen some of them trained in martial combat, as well as being able to summoning dreaded breadnaughts, while others contributed alchemy to their job for instance. I'd say there's enough material to go around, and there's enough notorious bakers in the world already.

As for their god - Bakers are provisioners at heart, competitive as we've seen, yet the art in itself is there to appease and nourish other people. It might be a lesser aspect of the Eniripsa, dedicated to ensure people are healthy and sustained 'prior' to actually being sick.

I'm really liking the suggestion to 'throw the barrel with water spells', having them effectively trigger their effect at the same time (or something alternative)

To be honoust, with a request like that I would humbly suggest a Masqueraider - They have an amazingly adaptive playstyle that allows to do exactly what you're asking for imho. Furthermore, their water 'Coward' tree focusses a lot on being midrange 'after' having danced around your enemy a bit.

I would assume its pretty hard to keep expanding on a game when you have a set piece of lore effectively fixed in a point of time, of which we have all seen the events.

Any new class, any new major world-changing event would seem silly and perhaps a bit oddly placed when there's absolutely no mention of them/it in the cartoon.

Looking back, the whole Sufokia/Foggernaut thing was a bit of a mess as well, and I'm sure that the upcoming new class is merely a clever trick to weave in a technically refabricated Eliatrope - obviously in such a way so they don't specifically hurt the Eliatrope lore.
Even if they're not Eliatropes though, we're still stuck with a powerful portal-wielding class that somehow lost all relevance to the events we saw in the cartoon. For as long as the cartoon remains canon in the same world 20 years in the future, they'll always be shooting themselves in the foot lore-wise, imho.
I personally love the concept and think they can make it work with the lore pretty smoothly!

Eliatropes were an advanced civilization of space (literal) travelers.

Where as Voyagers could take a new spin on the concept by being a Xelor counterpart and being space (dimension) travelers. Not hard to be excluded from the show if they just go to a new dimension entirely.

Dimensional Voyager's have soo much more promise in terms of being a well thought out class then the Eliatrope in both combat and lore if you ask me.

Also, if Wakfu ever gains another season they could always pull a foggernaut move like they did in season two haha.

Hell maybe we'll even see some in the Master Joris origin story movie!

Perhaps we're all playing in a new-timeline set 20 years before the events in the Wakfu Cartoon, 'AFTER' Nox got resurrected at some point and managed to roll-back the time to where we are now in the game! ;D

Oh no worry, I'm actually happy and excited about the new class coming out. But I do think Wakfu as a game has set itself up to be more fragile for lore inconsistencies. MMORPGs enjoy expanding their world, but hardly any of them have to worry about connecting to a fixed point of events set in the future.
