Thanks for being so active in this thread at least, RyF! It's good to know what we say at least interests you to some extent. :-)

About those countries: you must admit it is all getting quite confusing. There are the 4 nations of the game, then there are the king of Bonta, the prince of Brakmar and the king/regent and prince of Sufokia, not to mention the 12 kingdoms of the classes of which we've only seen the Sadida kingdom for real and the representatives of the others.

One wonders if one mixes with the other (like the Vatican within Rome) or are they all still islands yet to be discovered? And if so, why haven't these been explored in the game yet? They seem just as interesting as divine dimensions, in my humble opinion. I know there was gonna be a Masqueraider village someday, but never any mention of the class kingdoms...
Personally I feel like most of the class leaders function more like corporation/guild leaders than actual kings... As for class realms, there's a Rogue "kingdom" shown in the Remington comics, that's for sure.

On a side note - I think it'd be redunant to add class realms now that the dimensions are a thing. Ok, Masq/Rogue/Fogger stuff would be welcome, but I see no point in two Feca/Xelor/whatever else realms. It'll be better to focus on well-designed dimensions instead of spliting it in two parts (especially since half of the gods still needs a proper redesign. Especially Eniripsa. Give me Eniripsa who looks like godess of paranoics and mad sciencists, not generic fanservice elf with wings).

On another, only slightly related note: clear images of Dofus Xelorium stuff are up on the Dofus site. The sidekick is an owl, the pet - a small Xelomorph.


Another great design, the only sidekick released this year which doesn't look all that well is Filacia, in my humble opinion. Those nippe spikes and blatant sexualization ain't cool...

Thanks for the reply, RyF! It's amazing to see that we might see more on the cults and minor factions in the future, if you'll have the opportunity - I'm especially looking forward to Otomai's Disciples. : D

At the same time - soooo if I understand correctly, most stuff you hinted at (nation quest, Bworde, the underwater area, whatever else there was I forgot) might not see the light of day due to some recent development? Sad news indeed, I hope it only sounds so bad and, more importantly, won't impact the integrity of the franchise's background, it's in great shape right now, and your questlines are responsible for that to a large degree D;

In the q&a from a year ago, RyF compared them to goblins, and yeah, it seems that they simply flock to evil, or at least morally dubious powers. Notice that this is more or less what goblins do in Dofus as well - they're found in Brakmarian army (in the manga, Vil Smisse refers to goblins and vampires as the main non-human forces under his command, there's even a goblin among the commanders), in Bwork settlements (iirc there's an explanation for that in Dofus Monster: Bworker, apart from the fact that orc/goblin alliances are a standard in fantasy) and on Sakai, serving Harebourg.

I think it's safe to assume that Grambos are related to goblins. Maybe they're simply a goblin tribe which favors secrecy and bizarre hoods, they have the same skin tone and similar body type to Sakai goblins anyway. Or a species related to goblins. They fill the same niche, definitely.

As for translation: the "makinf of" books from season 1 refer to them as "Crawlies", but in-game they were always called Grambos.

Spoiler: (highlight to show)
I think it's debatable whether the Count is straightforward villanous in Wakfu, since we haven't seen him do too much apart from supporting the black wabbit revolution for (partially?) personal gain. But yep, you're right - still, nice to hear oficially that it's the case. This makes the entire thing clash with the ovas even more, even putting "Ovabourg's" idiocy aside (never 4get the new master plan which is something Darkness Knight would come up with.(also, there's more, pm me if you want to check anything specific ;v)

I don't think that the Demons of the Hours would even think of having kids with each other ;x Too many antagonisms among them, also bear in mind that they're not simple beasts, most of the official depictations show them as rather refined in comparision to their average shushu brethren, aaaand most of them are described as cold and calculating. Also, "interbreeding" doesn't really sound well in this context, they're sentient as far as we know.

Also, I almost forgot about a spoiler I should've shared long ago :')

Go ahead, spoil the entire thing for youself

(I hope RyF won't mind sharing this D

Little question though: Xelor can't go back in time, but he can see the future? Would make you think he has a complicated batman gambit set up for the imminent heist of their divine powers, no? Or is he really just the accountant of Time, managing it without interfering, even when it concerns the gods themselves?
He's just an accountant. Even if he can see the future, he doesn't change it - this would damage the time-space continuum, which he's supposed to guard. Would sort of defeat his purpose as the guardian of time if he was messing with it himself, don't you think?

Also, since I'm pretty sure I forgot to mention this - the Xelorium boss from the preview we couldn't identify is the Hordemon/Altdemon one, as it turns out, the Xelomorph one is much more sleek. I wonder if this means that the demons are basically Xelorium's wildlife, since he was shown as the equivalent of Toxoliath and the giant drheller...

But if I saw it correctly in the trailer, you can switch between past - present - future by using a special watch, correct? So there is actually no past, present or future in the dimension of Time? (which seems quite appropriate)
Areas are nicknamed "past tense", "future tense" and "present", iirc, that's about it. It's a gameplay mechanic, related to two drops from all mobs in the dimension. Srambad had a similar one.

This has nothing to do with the museum.

If Xelorium is split into past, present and future..How does the future room Major showed look like in the past and future? Correct me if anything.
Future room only contains Wakfu era artifacts, past room contains pre-game Dofus stuff, mostly related the primordial dofus, and I haven't posted any links to it.

Actually, the musem is spilt into 4 sections - the 4th one is called "errors", and most of its contents are jokes and references to popular items.

For now that's the realm of fanfiction, sorry. ;p

Unless we're going full fanfiction with this thread, I'm sure everyone wants to see my multiple rewritten versions of Shadow's backstory and/or quality FreezzxHarebourg romance stories.



Putting all that babbling aside: I'm very excited about the mention of Eniripsa something-laboratory. Hopefully the dimension itself will follow this path.

Steamers get a seperate dimension?! Or would it just be a part of Osamodas' dimension?
I doubt this greatly at least in wakfu. In dofus possibly but not in wakfu. This is because they are atheistic in wakfu while not in dofus *though i have wonders about merkator being thought of as a god of sorts as outlined previously in this thread* I am going on the assumption each subclass will get a island masq island, foggernaut underwater city, rogue hideout? someplace that is their own.
Rogues have their own city in Remington comics already, Masqueraider island is in the files, there is (was before the dimensions, at least) an underwater area with possible ties to Foggers in development (on hold for now). None of those is a dimension. Gods get dimensions, not classes. Rogues are covered in Dofus by multiple npc and some mobs in both humanoid families (and Wakfu has the Raval Disciple), so it's safe to assume that it'll be the same for Foggers and Masqs.

I'm pretty sure the location mentioned by the Voyager is some sort of Oktopodas-themed subarea of the Osamodas dimension. Which is the next one to be released in Dofus, so it'll be natural that hints show up here and there.

Merkator? As a god? How would that even work, especially if in Dofus he's just a renegade scholar with a small crew of pirates under his command? Can't see this in Wakfu, either. He was probably pulling the strings behind the invasion, but he doesn't have that much influence, and the Foggernauts definitely wouldn't think of their "maker" as god, it'll be a huge surprise if they even remember him in detail at this point. Not even his Alkatrool bio hints at that.

We've seen all that remains of them. End of season 2. That's the Sea Council, or rather its monarchistic remains (if all of Adal's ancestors were as charming and competent as he is, it comes as no surprise that a large chunk of the population didn't mind getting mechanical bodies from a madman with flamboyant facial hair).

I beg to differ: Adal and Frida mentioned his father, the King, during one of the episodes, so it is quite likely he's still alive too with another (not military) remnant of the Sea Council. Also, even if we've seen them in the animated series, the game takes place 10 years before that, so it may be fun to find out where they have been hiding all this time.
Books from the Foggernaut invasion event mention that a regent is ruling in place of Adale. I think it's pretty much a given that the old king is already dead when the events of the game take place...

What I'm hoping for in the underwater area, by the way, are mechanical Foggernauts with inhuman and bizarre features. Flexington in theory has a soul inside as well, show me Foggers with equally extreme body modifications. Mismatched optics, weaponized arms, multiple legs detachable parts, mandibles, the possibilities are endless. They have immortal robot forms, why not customize them a bit?

I find those submarine drones one for surveillance and one for research... im really curious what these are in reference to. I mean they are obviously foggernaut origins... but whose.

I wonder about them too.. Would Ankama be planning another Foggernaut expansion/storyline? Maybe not for Wakfu, but who knows? The fact they're giving away Adal-costumes and new Foggernaut decorations with the steam accounts could also link to this. Maybe we'll get to see the Sea Council Foggernauts in Wakfu too?

This being said - I would LOVE a proper Foggernaut questline, so even though those drones are probably just a technology sample from the era (there are multiple weapons and the Solomonk in another room as well, not everything in the musem is a reference to a great event, it would appear), I think that we can at least hope for something. Especially since there's a small light on the horizon...


Spoiler: (highlight to show)
Little birdie told me that there might be an underwater area planned. I hope that sharing this information won't get neither me not the source in trouble. Bear in mind that "planned" areas are also the scrapped lousy pig island and the Bworde's motherland, about which we only know that it might happen... So don't get your hopes high, for now.

Pandora's refered to as "L'Explorancienne" (The Explorancient) in Xelorium's museum.

So... Will this be the conclusion of the dimensions storyline? I guess there's still a plenty to discover, I doubt that she's named Pandora without a reason (maybe the container with the power of gods will be the Pandora box she's going to open...? That's the only idea I have right now. Though maybe it'll be more metaphorical...).


On an unrelated side note, I love the Razortime statue.

People irl usually don't look perfectly beautiful, either. While I agree that the Sacrier is weird, the rest is simply diverse, unlike, let's say, Xa's drawings. Different body types, different facial features. I haven't hated a single npc since Ezam, they're all gorgeous because they're finally d i v e r s e. There's more to character design that's "what's cute/badass/conventionally attractive".

Inb4 multiple chibi animu artists show up and disagree

I think you're confusing the diversity of style and design with the quality of the artwork. This thread is addressing the latter.
This thread is adressing the fact that it's different from Xa's, which is for some reason the same thing as art quality for the op, therfore everything about my reply is perfectly fine.

A plain labcoath, leaving the character's hair visible, identical on both sexes (there's already one costume showing hair in the files, so it's technically possible, it seems). Also, a plague doctor costume. Both would suit a wide variety of classes and don't venture into both realm of fanservice and over the top pauldrons, which are the main problems with costume designs in the genre.

On a side note: did everyone see the Sadida redesign Mig posted on dA? I quite like it, while not as extensive as Sram's, it enriches the god's image. Can't wait for Eniripsa, I hope Ankama has something suitable bizarre preared for her.

Sadida the pimp?! What do you hope they'll do to Eniripsa? Sexy nurse?
My first thought was "hey, that's more or less how the loa are portrayed in present-day hoodoo", which is pretty damn fitting for him. ;v

I'm expecting Eniripsa to be as uncanny as Sram, maybe more. Out of 4 or so canon Enis, 2 are mad scientists and another one is Herr Peece, the design of the godess should reflect that. Right now she's a generic elf lady who looks exctly like Cra, a more abstract approach would be welcome.

Only one quest mentions that the city is affilated with him, without clarifying where he is now. ;s I guess we still have to wait to see the piece of media which was supposed to cover the topic of the Protectors in Wakfu mentioned on the stream a year ago. :x Unless something changed and it won't see the light of day...

I've finished all of Brakmar's mercenary quest. While posting spoilers from them feels a bit redunant, I really appreciate how they enriched each area. I've really enjoyed the focus on industry (and scaras), it was nice to see Djaul openy referenced, too. Great job as always, those short quests were suitable entertaining and kept the high background quality presented by the main quests in newer areas, even if the matters covered were trivial.

I'm looking forward to mrcenaries in non-nation areas. c:

WTB Chomped Jelly As in the title - I want to buy 3 pieces of Chomped Jelly. Leave a reply here or try to catch me in-game (ign: Guldenbart).

Still looking for them, after 18 runs none dropped, though, so I'm questioning whether this resource actually exists post-update...
