Sorry to drag this back up, but seemed to have missed this before: how do we know all Goblins are dead? I would love to use them in some fanfic but wasn't sure about their survival into the Wakfu era...
Quick correction - Major meant that the Sakai goblins are no longer around, having perished in Ogrest's chaos (I believe it was one of the clawbot dyes referencing this, can't remember if the dye was named after Sakai but I think it was). I'm certain that the regular goblins are still kicking around, though, so you can go nuts with them.

But do we know anything more about him/them? Because as far as we know, there are no owls present in Xelorium, so how did they become a sidekick all of a sudden?
Actually, I recall there being an owl NPC in Xelorium that Major showed me. Either I'll dig up the image when I get time or Major can handle that.

Also, it's important to note that owls are apparently the guardians of Xelorium - the place has a lot of owls in its imagery. So Archdiuk is likely related to that. Though what his exact story is and how he became a sidekick to the players still remains to be seen.

*though i have wonders about merkator being thought of as a god of sorts as outlined previously in this thread*
I'm sorry, but when did anyone refer to Merkator as a god? Forefather of robotic Foggers, yes, but I do not recall him being referred to as a god anywhere in this thread. : s

Today is international Talk Like A Pirate day, that's probably why. It has nothing to do with the Riktus - they've already got their own theme, anyway.

International Talk Like A Pirate day?! Does such a thing even exist? They could have at least advertized it a bit before going to all the trouble of edititng the avatars...
Yep, it's a legit thing, I kid you not.

Great stuff, Major! They do seem an odd sort, but I think the link between and the new monster family is quite strong.

KiwiTang: I discovered that your text was only the first chapter in a book of three. I've found the rest on a French site and tried to translate it to the best of my abilities :

Chapter 2: The forgotten Clan and lost treasure

For several months, the Clan MagikRiktus scoured thearea of Amakna, almost overshadowingthe Rogues. Thesuccess of their show was suchthat many young people idolized them and no matter how deepthe four brothers went into hiding aftertheir campaign, there was always afan to find them andbeg them to incorporate him into theirgroup .
Thus the decision was made to open the doors of the clan to those who wished to join. Allwho knew how to handle the bow,sword, staff or wand were allowedin and put on the suit marked with thesymbol of Magik Riktus.
The years passed. The rumor was that the Clan,ever growing, had amassed a colossalfortune in addition to perfecting their "spectacle techniques"into real fighting techniques and thus getting ever better at relieving the crowdof their Kamas. But this adventure suddenly stopped with the unexpected disappearance of the four founders. Theyleft behind a horde of disappointedfans and a pieceof parchment containing anenigma.

This time it were centuries that passedand no one manages to decipher the writing onthe parchment. Today the heirs ofthe Clan, still numerous, ceasedoperations and returned to pleasethe crowds of the World of Twelve. Secret signs allow them to recognize each other but never do theywear their costume to give a show and swindlean inn or tavern.
Clan Rictus Magikwould have fallen into oblivion without the recent interventionof Yrucrem.

Yrucrem was thefirst recruit of the four brothers andtheir heir, following their disappearance.Desperate by the Clandissolving, he made a radical decision: the parchment under his arm, he crossed the big square ofAstrub and withthe same flair, nailed it on a pole for all to see shouting aloud themotto of Clan: "Chomeussgohone!"


Chapter 3: The rediscovered treasure and the magicformula

Following the act of Yrucrem, many adventurers set out in search ofthe treasure. The mystery isrevealed little by little betweenthe smartest of them and leads them to the keeperof the hidden treasure which quickly revealed his secret.It was actually a formula : that of thefour brothers hidden techniquethat allowed them to relievetheir audience of their money with such ease thatmade them into legends ... Once read, the formulais dissipated into the air andspread to the entire World of Twelve to dissipatealtogether. However, for a few days, thieves, treasure hunters and busybodiesof all kinds have seen most of their activities crowned with unprecedented success.

And then the course of life resumed inAmakna, crowned with surprises and magic...
However, the event would not be withoutconsequences for the Clan Magik Riktus, who knewsuddenly renewed interestof the public. They took this opportunity to go on stage and multiply their shows, exporting their"caning show" farbeyond Fair Troolwhere Leonzi Trool,classmate of Yrucrem,had offered themshelter long time ago.

Adventurers, beware your Kamas!
Ooooh, nice find! I wasn't aware of this before - can't recall if it was ever translated.

Thans KiwiTang! So actually they're just a band of botched musicians gone into crime?
Yep, pretty much! Unless their history gets retconned I'm pretty sure this is how it will stay. We'll have to see what comes with the update, if there will be some more backstory attached to these guys.

Can we have any more background on these Riktus now that they're gonna play a bigger part? I know the question was asked before, but back then not much was known. Now it seems they deserve a bigger story, no?

They used to have a page with a story blurb on the Dofus site when they were first introduced as incarnations (and I believe the French had a "bandit guild", which was a roleplay guild managed by a GM. The new Riktus-based outlaw system reminds me a lot of this). Sadly, the page was removed, but thanks to Waybackmachine, I managed to salvage the text. Note that I don't know if it's going to be the same or retconned, though. This was about the only background on the Riktus that existed.

__________________________
"Chapter 1 : The birth of the Magik Riktus Clan

The carrot collides with the hollow melons, bringing to a climactic close Amloch's innovative symphony... or so he thought, at least.


But what's this? The composer passes his hat through the crowd, and he doesn't collect a bean.


"At least they had the generosity to throw us a few rotten tomatoes last time", Smirkerth grumbled as they inched along the path away from the Inn, "I made a fine drum skin out of those tomato peels, I did."


... He blew a distracted note somewhere between do and re, (a 'bo', as the specialists call it)...


"It's like squeezing blood out of a turnip with these people..." Dusolair was just beginning a defeatist monologue when Firetellini threw his egg shakers to the ground, and brandishing an enormous broccoli drumstick, he ran off towards the Inn, screaming "I'm going to kill them all, they don't understand a thing about art..."


It took all three of his brothers, and a lot of rolling in the dust, to calm him down that time.

Raw vegetable quartets were a thing of the past in the World of Twelve, at least for the time being, and the violent miming act that Amloch, Smirkerth, Dusolair and Firetellini were busy performing, having run out of suitable words to scream at one another, was no more fashionable.


"We're innovators, visionaries," Amloch lectured, "but the common folk just don't understand. It's up to us. We have to..."


A low rumbling sound rang out and echoed in the moonlit night, just as Smirkerth fell to his knees and began to weep.


"My belly's been talking to me again, telling me to do things. Terrible things. I... I almost ate my leek flute this morning," he confessed, the shame bursting out of him in bitter tears.


In reality, the other three were feeling more than a little peckish themselves, but they managed to hide their suffering better than Smirkerth. Amloch continued:


- We can't go on like this. I hate to say it, but I think we're going to have to start doing what people want. And you all know what people want these days...
- Dofus eggs? Dusolair suggested
- Dofus eggs... no... but how do people get these eggs? Come on, are you with me?


They were not with him. Firetellini had had enough -


- How about we just have a good punch-up with anyone who...
- Exactly, brother! At least one of you is thinking. Punch-ups. Everyone's doing it these days. Remember that show we played last week... everyone was about to leave when a punch-up started in the cheap seats. Every last person stayed to watch.
- That's true, Smirkerth admitted.


Dusolair had his doubts...


- But do you really think that public punch-ups will get the crowds going? There's no way they'll pay us.
- Oh but you're wrong. Because our shows will be interactive. No more silent hat passing when the music's over, we'll take our fee directly from their pockets. It's more convenient for everyone!


Amloch was in such a creative mood, that he took up a cucumber trombone and began to sketch wildly in the thick, red dirt. A banana... and a circle. A banana and a circle?


-What's that, the three brothers chorused.
-That? That's a banana and a circle.
- It kind of looks like a Cyclops with a smile, or a rictus, as they say, said Dusolair.


What followed is too long and monotonous to repeat here, but the important thing is that there and then, the Magik Riktus clan was born
"

Not too long ago, Aacher got a screenshot of a piece of Pandora's house bearing Harebourg's emblem:


Curious. But we thought it was just a matter of resources being reused. But then Major happened across another instance of the emblem:



Now we're pretty certain there has to be something going on here. So is it indeed a simple reuse of resources? Or is there something a little more to the emblem being there?

Of course he died when he turned to dust... we all do when this happends.
What I mean is his death wasn't exactly time-magic related - there was no more purpose for him in the world, so there was no reason for him to stick around.

I belive Xelor's bandages keeps their bodies from being destroyed due to slow, but constant aging (just like people do with mummies, to keep bodies of those dead people in one piece*). Young xelors are obviously not born in bandages.

*except inner organs but lets not go into details.
Actually, the bandages protect their bodies from the time magic they use. If there's one piece of their body left uncovered, the results would be disastrous. And likely messy.
Isn't that same thing? They maniplate time, so in order for their own bodies to not fall apart when they experiment with time, they use those "magical" bandages.


Spoiler: (highlight to show)
Oh and we do know what would happen - we saw last episode with Nox. He turned to dust.
No, you were referring to the gradual aging process. Not the use of time magic.

And I'm pretty sure Nox just outright died when he turned to dust. There was nothing left for him in the world since his plan failed, and he probably couldn't bear the deeds he committed, so there was no reason for him to stick around.

"Never"? Not sure what are you talking about. He's not on this particular list because he's not a dungeon boss...

Right, you got me. Never is too absolute, but if you run through the art and books and guides of frigost, he's not as present as the others just because he has no dungeon of his own. But then again, haven't played Dofus myself, but I can't find any real dialogue of him either, only his 'Hothead'-books, which are very enriching for his character
Funny that you mention that, Hazieff was initially supposed to have his own dungeon, but I guess at some point they decided to change up his role in the story. There was an adorable image of him and what I suppose would have been his minions, which I believe is from the art book. I need to find it because it is the most precious thing.

There's a source with screenshots detailing the Frigost quests, but I'll let Nelson (or Major, if he's allowed) to share that, since I believe it was all Nelson's hard work going through the quest.

Actually, most of the bosses have a back story - it's even more true for UB / BU.
Normal bosses such as Yechti Wawa, Missiz Freezz, Sylargh, Hagen Daz, Throll the Bwork, Zwombbit boss, Black Wabbit Boss have clues in game about their origins/situation, more or less obvious and easy to find depending on the case.
Actually, even some special mobs such as the elite trio northen chafers from Sberg village,, have back story in game ;-)

Sadly, sometimes, production time is so limited that we have to leave out some "secondary" pieces of content, such as mobs background.
As far as Ponktius is concerned, he's one of those whose story didn't make it in the game due to a lack of time to inject such a secondary content.
Hopefully, I'll be able to put it where it belongs in game, most likely in a similar fashion as I did for the zwombbit boss( check out Pwofessow Womewo for more info ;-) ).


RyF
Aww, makes sense, though, that Ponktius seems to lack a backstory. Here's hoping you do get to squeeze in a little info on him, then, I'm deeply curious to find out more about him. Thanks for taking your time to reply, RyF! It's greatly appreciated.

Shitfing the topic a little, Major and I were discussing Ponktius recently, and he pointed out that the questline does not state what Ponktius’s position was. All we know is that he apparently bears the title of “The Alienated” (though I assume he used to be an authority figure of sorts, judging from his sheer size), with no other info on him being given.

So my question is basically this: What is, or was, Ponktius’ rank before he became “Ponktius the Alienated”? And what caused him to end up being alienated, as his title implies?
Who is this Ponktius of which you speak? Is he the Castuc boss? If so, maybe we should seek the answer with their fungus friends. The Alienated seems so refer to the fact that he/they have become estranged from their original tribe. But since I haven't done the desert island yet, I can't confirm this for certain...
Yeah, he's the boss of the Castuc dungeon. Major went through the quest already, but he says there's no reference to Ponktius anywhere in the questline. And he can't be the chief, since the Castucs have someone else as a chief already.

WTB Little Tofu Hands I'm in dire need of Little Tofu Hands right now for a Kam's Hand. I have 86 at the moment, so I need 13 more of these things. They're dropped only by Tofoones, and aren't all that common on the market.

I'll cough up 500 kamas for each hand I get, so go scrap some fluffy yellow bird ladies until you drop one of these to make a quick buck. Every single hand I get helps.

PM either Esrym, Teima or Vivaire

Hate to bump, but only 13 more left to go.
