Frigost is a place, not a person

Also, it was "[Harebourg] would be delighted to have such a specimen in his collection" or something very similar, which was simply refering to the fact that he collects scientific oddities and rare creatures, and Dimensional Voyagers count as such, I was under the impression we sorted the issue of misinterpreting the prologue months ago '-----'

Also, the link between Srams and Rogues is something like assassination/crime syndicates. Basically covering different aspects of illegal activity. Good call on the life/death symbolism with Osa aspects, though I like to view it as nature and mockery/imitation of it rather than life/nature and death.

Ain't nobody got time for this


I love that when weird science is happening, there is always a xelor involved.
This is someone's character, Acher, not an npc.

Wabbit Voyger guy officially scares me now

Have you seen the ovas?

They did it already. Stop pretending like Ankama can do no wrong and "c'mon let's wait for more developments before we judge", they fucked up. Badly.

Do you seriously expect a good explanation for the existence of a class whose raison d'etre is the fact that some people don't understand what continuity and good writing are and wanted to play as magical mary sue space elves? This what we deserved, as a community, for all those "pls mak eliatrop ingaem anmaka" threads and everything else related to the problem.

Please congratulate Ankama on replacing an actually interesting idea for a class with utter garbage.

Dunno if the playerbase should trust you now, though, I guess everyone has to decide on their own, not really my problem since in theory I left already

You're either born a follower of a particular god if your parents were pious enough/decided on that before incarnation, or choose your path during puberty. There's no way to reverse the process.

How does this make sense when she looks exactly the same in a story set in the Dofus era?

Whitewashing is a brand new issue, though. And I think it has to stop right now, preferably with a retcon to follow. Otherwise watch out, Sadidas will also all turn white in the next season.

DrOgon.

Would be weird if he was Ecaflip himself and Ush didn't adress that in one way or another, besides we know the date of Joris's birth/creation now and god Ecaflip was still active after it. On the other hand, Tot doesn't seem to be ahuge fan of consistency right now and hey, we can solve all problems with Edgetrope time paradoxes. And probably redesigning some characters into the most whitebread white guys in existence.

I'm not even sure why we are trying to discuss their "lore" seriously when we literally heard from the person in charge of the game's lore that he's not fond of everything that's coming up and would rather work on other stuff (and all of the areas he mentiond he had planned sound a lot better than either the ovas or Edgetropes - Foggernaut area explaining what Merkator was up to between Dofus and Wakfu, homeland of the Bworks, final part of Frigost...). RyF's, uh. A person who actually can write. Whoever was in charge of the ova and now the Edgetropes (Tot apparently) clearly isn't. Simple conclusion: all of this can be disregarded.

Are you talking about Lady Echo? She's a demigod as well, probably the daughter of Sram?
She may be a Demigod, but I don't think she's a sram. She doesn't look like a sram.

Mostly because of the face tatoos, green skin, and the long ears.
Besides, we've seen all of Sram's children...
One Sram, one Rogue, no reptillian illuminati:


My bet's one some sort of dragon because every time when this shitty pointless conspiracy plot is referenced, the reptillian illuminati or whatever the official name was are refered to as "descendants of gods and dragons". Though maybe it'll turn out those are actually drOgons, evil dragons from the dark and edgy lands who exist only to cause sibling conflict between poorly written protagonists.

Also, someone explain to me what's so amazing about cliche plot, lots of manpain, shitting all over estabilished background, female characters getting literally no development, straightforward problematic elements (mostly related to the issue of female characters, e.g. portraying Amalia as a prize Yugo has to won through his "heroic" manpain-fueled actions) and whitewashed Harebourg (his skin was shown as pitch black before, was someone at Ankama afraid of showing non-white people in positions of power without making them ~~tribal~~) who managed to have too little to do with the original that you could just put a pointy hat on a silkworm and it'd still be more accurate than Tallbishie McWhiteguy

hopefully there'll never be such a thing

To make this reply constructive: they've released a 3-part ova, that's it for now. It's pretty horrible and I don't recommend it.

wasn't this the very reason why god Sram decided to replace their own deity Eugor?
Sram didn't replaced Eugor... He is Eugor... He changed his appearance and pretended to be the god of a godless class by tricking them that he is Eugor the god of rogue... Later, when he revealed who he really is, the rogues loved the fact that he managed to trick all of them so they all end up worshiping him for real.
Almost!

Rogues worshiped Raval, the protector of Septangel and founder of the Rogue clans, but then Sram did the whole Eugor thing to steal all of Raval's disciples.

From some text in Dofus:

Quote
For a long time, there was a big difference between Rogues and other adventurers. In fact, they only worshipped Raval, the founder of their clan, which they dedicated to him. But no matter how much the Rogues kept their work hidden in the shadows, there was one god who, as usual, didn't miss a trick: Sram. Nobody knows exactly how this god ousted the protector of Septangel, but somehow he managed to steal the Rogue disciples for himself. He named himself the Rogues' only god, using the pseudonym Eugor, and referred to Raval as a mere representative. Little by little, less and less was heard of Raval, until eventually the Rogues started to believe in Eugor. Finally, at the height of his glory, Eugor revealed who he really was. You have to admit that tricking not one but thousands of Rogues is no mean feat! As a result, the Rogues didn't take the deception badly, but admired their new god all the more for it.
Ah, thanks! I knew I've read this somewhere long ago, but memory doesn't serve me perfectly sometimes, thus the small mistake.

In other words Elio(a)tropes probably worship the energies and matter itself rather than an all powerful "being".
Considering the quality of the Eliatrope and especially EliOtrope background, I'm expecting that it'll be revealed they're actually atheists and believe only in mountain dew-fueled euphoria.

(Rogues don't really strike me as agnostics, btw - they seem be fairly religious in the Remington comics and in Srambad quests from Dofus - wasn't this the very reason why god Sram decided to replace their own deity Eugor? D; Foggers defnitely count as some sort of agnostics, they acknowledge that gods exist, so it's clearly not atheism. I'd say that in Wakfu everyone is an agnostic theist, though - they can't check if the gods still exist, but they still keep believing in them thanks to the power of tradition...)

B-but dramatic fight that didn't really add too much to the plot! A-and literally the worst possible explanation for featuring two mismatched characters from different parts of the franchise! ;_;

Putting usual ova mockery aside - since it'd be a shame to waste those two days worth of sub time I have left and hey, there's no reason to whine about the dimensions story arc in Wakfu as of yet, I've tried to progress with the Xelorium stuff on beta. Got nothing we wouldn't know already, apart from th fact that the Srambadian attackers refer to our unnamed Sombre Maitre Whatever guy as "the Advisor". Soooo there's probably someone else waiting to be revealed.

Good opportunity to promote my "Gein's pulling the strings and he's ultimately the protagonist of all this stuff" theory, considering the recent reveal about the original Explorancient

Clearly we're going to get a Jaris class soon, because he'll turn out to be the God-Oprah-King of the primordial dragons

Here's the female version:


Those are the Dofus sprites, but they're pretty much the same design in both games.
Was all that cleavage on the female model necessary? Couldn't they give both sexes identical tunics?
