I'm very confused by those of you who talk about affording things. I can afford to play 100 accounts if I wanted too, but I would still be unhappy with the fact that I'm forced to pay extra money for the ability to purchase superfluous things I don't really want in the first place. The product I want is a booster pack, I should have the option to just buy that booster pack. Anything else is within their rights but is also shaaaady. I will probably drop most of my 6box subs for this reason alone. It has nothing to do with affordability and everything to do with principle.

Sidemote Mines Dragoturkey Well Ankama, thanks for taking away 50% of the reason I waited months and spent way more than I wanted to on a Havenworld.

a 10 second run to the Sidemote Mines Dragoturkey was most of the reason I chose the location instead of Gnashville North which had it's turkey removed several months ago just before it was released or any of the other significantly cheaper/earlier released locations. Now, with it removed, my guild has to navigate the worst map you have ever put in this game every time they want to get to our Havenworld.

When you remove turkeys you should probably stop to consider their meaning to the players. Ones that are next to Havenworlds were probably big selling points for the people who bought those haven worlds. I sincerely hope that someday as a company you can get your act together, because you rarely give me incentive to stay with your product instead of ditching you like a the girlfriend you act like.

Useful information: he will get caught in the middle area corners so I would try to avoid letting him get there. If you get closer than four tiles from him he will push you, and will ocasionlly drain stamina when he's pissed. If you stay one tile further than the range of ability two he will gain fear more slowly than you can reduce it allowing you to save your but if you mess up. Additionally you can save infinite stamina from what I can tell so you can just pass turns heavily to get more stamina.

i honestly think passing heavily and reducing fear in the beginning to gain stamina is the most effective way to do the quest since you can tire him to thirty and then saddle+capture in the same turn.

hope that makes sense.

The only benefit to challenges over bringing straight PP into the fight is that I believe I read it allows you to break the 150 PP drop cap.

I always do challenges, though, if they're reasonable and was able to single or double challenge many of the fights.

The point I'm trying to make is Ankama can't get a RNG together to save their life, I realized that almost two years ago when I was non-crit spec Xelor dueling a crit spec'd friend, 8% vs 32% and I crit twice as much as him in the total of 5 consecutive fights.

The thing is now that I'm hard-grinding for low % drops it really starts to leave a bad taste in the mouth and I think that's a universal problem people face in the game (See 100 threads about tokens, drop rates, ect.)

Yeah, I 6 box with two Enus and have a few pieces of spare pp gear with decent stats slapped on the other chars, BW is an easier dungeon so most higher levels can get away with a few pieces of PP with poor stats, even some of the old stuff like Doziac would work quite well. Sometimes if you want the PP you have to be the one to dump yourself in PP gear. If you single box, having an alternative PP set isn't too bad. It gets kind of brutal when you're playing with 6. One of ours 6boxes anything below Wa in 6x150pp.

Ankama has got to have the worst RNGes ever, you can also see this when you repeatedly run a dungeon for a set that has the same droprate on all rare pieces but there always seems to be that one piece that no one can ever drop and you end up with 5x the set except for that one piece.

It's flat out bad and claiming chance is a poor excuse for a making the meat of your product shoddy.
When it's truly random, then it isn't always consistent, even though you wish it to be.

Read above post about RNG. If your game approaches true random, you are doing it wrong.

I may have modified it, but if you look at it that way then you should also include the ability to drop the item from every mob in the dungeon in the boss fight and prior to the boss fight at 1% which I purposely excluded because it makes the system look even worse.

There is a reason drops are the #1 complaint of players. They're bad.

It's called leaving it to chance. 10% doesn't mean doing it more times will get you a bigger chance. Each individual run is a separate chance of 1 in 10. So you had 5 seperate 1 in 10 chances to get a fragment, you got unlucky. You could say flip a coin a thousand times, on that thousandth flip, it would still be 50-50.

Look at the percentages and the number of items that I have dropped. That's called a bad RNG, which is something a programmer puts into a game (or any randomized event with expected outcomes) to move away from 'true random' and more towards consistent rates that the user expects to please the consumer. Slot machines and other gambling devices with preset payout rates are good examples of this.

I've been reading around the wiki, forums, and etc. and I've been finding a multitude of stuff and this is what I've got so far

-Everyone by default has 100 Prospect that is not visible
-More prospect = Increased drop rates
-More party members= better drop rates
-Levels play a role as well (If you're a lot higher than the monster the drop rate chance is lower)

I just want to make sure that this correct or incorrect. Also, I'd really appreciate any other information that isn't on here. Please and thanks!
They _DON'T_ work.

5 runs Emiw

2x Amuletto 1%
2x Emiw Amulet 1%
2x Emiw Ring 1%
4x Emiw BP 3%
1x Emiw Boots 3%
2x Black Wabbit Dagger 3%
4x Black Enewgy 3%
0x Powerful Dazzling Belt Fragment 10%

Group PP 1000-1100ish.

Pro working droprates are pro and working so gud.

Just make a f2p alt account with no nation chars, turn it on to invite friends when you need to. I learned that two years ago when the game was even more unstable than it is now.

that sort of dragons and fire themed place appeals to a certain sort of immaturity
I don't think that generalizations like that are even remotely productive for anyone.

Perhaps F2P will change the model, but in the old model, follow every high level you can find begging for levels until someone lets you hitch a ride on some early content (Sadi works fine til 80 then I'd jump ship to whisps)

You will find leveling the regular way entirely unrewarding without a party... I did it once over two years ago and have no intention of ever doing it again.

I found the document about gift card laws: Click here

Having ogrines expire at all is crap, but under 12 months it's ILLEGAL. Ankama better change it unless they want to face legal issues.
In California it is illegal for gift cards to expire EVER. Subway got blasted by that law several years ago, However, I doubt this would apply to a company that operates their business from an international satellite. I could be wrong, though.

Wabbit island was the most poorly designed content released in the last two years. I'm glad that everything since has been less stupid. I'd be more mad about it if it weren't for the fact that we can somewhat ignore the nuisance since we outlevel and outgear the content.

Because Nox Watch is anti-cheating, we play favorites only with those who don't cheat. So opposing us basically admits that you are cheating.

All you have to do is not cheat and we'll be cool with you.
That is pure semantics. Does fighting against a Crusader mean you are against Christianity? Opposing a group or methodology does not make you something. Actions define what you are. Any individual or group can freely oppose your group without disagreeing with the core principles.

Please use more facts and less propaganda.

Dear Ankama,

We are no strangers to abusive relationships, you have done everything in your power to beat me up and for some pathetic reason I have constantly come back for more. I warn you, if you ruin this it will be the last straw. F2P ruined Heroes of Newerth to the point I would not return and even after two years of loyalty (similar to the timespan I played that game) I will not hesitate to do the same to Wakfu (or at the very least let my 6 subs lapse and log as I feel inclined). Don't screw this up, because after your constant stream of abuse (Xelor nerf into the ground and the 6months of bugs that came with it, Runic revamp round 1 aka you stealing everything I had worked for in the game for half a year, ect), this will be the last straw for me.

Peace,
Madd

The moment you slandered and suggested unnecessary damage to Xelor for no valid reason, your amusement factor no longer applies. Please leave.

Thanks,

Reminds me of when I played The-Reincarnation. The only rules I apply to myself or those I associate with are those applied by Ankama, also known as the Terms of Service. I find some of your ideals appropriate and some pretentious and self-absorbed, I also find some of the people you associate with to apply double standards to themselves for convenience.

Regardless, best of luck in your endeavors.

Events I never had time to execute during my terms as vice/gov:

PK Thovan/Governor day: Pretty self explanitory, the parties would run around and rewards would be given to those who killed them (Level requirements would be in place for either, I.E. 1-80 for Thovan, 81-145 for Governor)

Art contest: This was repeatedly requested, but I was never able to find a suitable way to implement or execute the creation of rules and judging.

Hide and PK Round 2: The first one was surprisingly successful, I have a few revisions for the rules I can give you to streamline it a lot from my first attempt if you ever want to do it again.
