No, that's not what he means. Around 2-3 years ago some Ankama staff member mentioned that a new UB called "Le Plagiste" is in the works. I think his english name was supposed to be "The Big Sandhill". Until now, we still know nothing about this new UB.

The Big Sandhill was scheduled to be released in July 2013 in the official roadmap.

Well... It's really hard to drop items - that's true, but luckily, most of the time you can take them for tokens and their token prices are not too high.
I've done around 200 runs of all moon dungeons combined, at least 1/3 of them with some steles activated and around 30-40 with all 3 steles activated. And yet, I can't say that I feel rewarded. All the relics and epics from moon that I have are linked and come strictly from the token machine. That's fair enough - at least I have them - the problem starts when you want to get an item that's not available in the token machines. I've seen only 3 stele items and 3 dungeon-mob-restricted items drop so far. And these items are very often required to reach your final build/gear. Getting those items vastly depends on luck, so even if you make an enormous effort - you might never be rewarded.

Well, I don't know any legendary players - i.e. ones that were remembered for a longer time due to some accomplishment.

However I can name people I have found the most persistent in staying in the endgame over last 4 years on Remington:

- Cloudi - He's been very active for as long as I know, but quit the game few months ago. I think he was the first to beat BC as UB, and one of the first people to farm BC set when he was still a WB. He was also very well renowned for PvP.

- Chaos - I remember leveling on wild gobbals in 2012 (or 2013?) with Chaos and since then he's been at the top in PvE most of the time, although he had many breaks.

- Naftalina - I remember occasionally playing with him and his wife him since WB times until 2015, when he moved to Efrim(?) and from what I've heard he was still killing it there.

- Keyser-Returns - The only person that I remember from nation PvP wars in 2013 that still plays the game. He has been PvPing with his Osa for ages and was quite succesful at it most of the time.

I've been monitoring CPU and memory, and none are spiking or causing trouble when the game starts to micro-lag.

Also, as I stated before - it happens even when I'm at the login screen, or the character select menu - there shouldn't be anything loading/downloading if I haven't even selected a character to log in with. There is nothing really consistent at all about when the microlags occur.
The micro-lags, as you call them, are most likely Java's garbage collection pauses. This is due to Wakfu's poor optimization. Java VM has limited memory and when it runs out of space for new objects, it stops the application and reclaims some memory. So you won't see CPU spikes then.

Everyone experiences freezes to some extent and there's not much you can do to avoid it except adjusting Java parameters to make the pauses less noticeable.

I can't seem to run the game with this .bat - keeps saying "Wakfu didnt shut down properly".

I have this for my file;

set _JAVA_OPTIONS="-Xmx726m -Xms256m -XX:+AlwaysPreTouch -XX:+UseFastAccessorMethods" start /d "C:\Proggy\Wakfu" Wakfu.exe

Is that correct?
Pretty sure it's set JAVA_OPTS not OPTIONS
JAVA_OPTS is a different variable which does not take precedence over command line arguments. So in this case it will have no effect - it's necessary to use _JAVA_OPTIONS.

Haven't tried that new version, but I may have fixed my issues by disabling all of the NVidia features for the game that were disable-able. So far I've gone about a half hour with no microlags.

**EDIT:** Okay I went about 3 hours without issue but then they happened again. Now trying the .bat again - this time with the corrected OPTIONS -> OPTS. It is working now so I'll report back if I'm micro-lagging still..
I'm sorry but it's been a while since I've written any Batch. The first line should be without the quotation marks, like this:
set _JAVA_OPTIONS=-Xmx724m -Xms248m -XX:+AlwaysPreTouch -XX:+UseFastAccessorMethods

Is this .bat a replacement for the launcher? Or you just run it one time then use the normal launcher from then on after? Also, thanks!
You run it instead of the launcher. It sets the flags temporarily (so it doesn't affect other Java applications) and runs the game launcher.

I'm not sure if it's OK (it should be), but you can override settings of any Java application with an environmental variable _JAVA_OPTIONS. Wakfu developers have set these to ensure that Wakfu doesn't use too much memory, but it makes the game freeze a little bit more. Here's an example batch script that you can run Wakfu with:

set _JAVA_OPTIONS="-Xmx726m -Xms256m -XX:+AlwaysPreTouch -XX:+UseFastAccessorMethods"
start /d "path/to/wakfu" Wakfu.exe

You can paste this into a .bat file and run it. It makes the available memory pool bigger and sets 2 flags that might improve performance.
Xmx is the maximum size of the memory allocation pool, default: 536870912 (bytes)
Xms is the initial memory allocation pool, default: 177167401 (bytes)
You can adjust these values and flags to your liking.

It uses 32-bit Java by default only on Windows and it's due to a bug in one of the libraries that they use (JOGL).
However, in general you shouldn't see much of a difference between 32-bit and 64-bit Java. The memory limit of 32-bit Java on Windows is about 1.6g, but from my experience Wakfu wouldn't need that much.

1. Let's keep up with the BACKUPS on all the SQL Servers "Master:Slave Chain" Schema. Don't depend all on Heroku, Heroku does not do all the monitoring work for you, and if you have services behind on your firewall, please give some back ports to Heroku to monitor.
What makes you think they use Heroku? I don't think they do...

2. And if you don't want to, please find a software to do so, this and monitor the services of SQL (SNMP that sound ok) and keep in mind that the most of your players (Users) does not give a fuck on what platform is developed (Microsoft SQL, Postgree, Mysql, Oracle, Maria SQL, FireSQL, Java, C++, C#, Objective C, Ruby), or what are you are using to develop your game. When a system RUNs fine, it's a fine and biutiful GAME to play.
I've never heard of anyone using SNMP on a game server and I can't see any application for it, can you elaborate?

For those who does not understand this, Unit test is a way to test methods and functions whithing the code, to prove that the code returns parameters or values correctly. This to prevent regresion "BUG's" or problems. This, because it's imposible for a developer to test every method or function before the code it's compiled in JAVA, C, C#, C++, ect. (You name it) or even in scripting language like PHP or RUBY. On BIG and complex applicatios like WAKFU this is necessary. (OBVIOUS)
No, that's not what Unit Tests are for... They're for testing behaviours. Also, code in Java with wrong return value type would simply not compile. Have you ever used any unit testing framework or a statically compiled language?

P.S.: I think this thread is garbage.

Is it possible for Ankama to do selective rollbacks? Like exclude character data, items not suspected of being duped and so on. I think what I might be thinking of is data editing, could Ankama simply delete excess kamas and items suspected of being duped directly instead of rolling everything back?

Yes, I am aware it would take more work on Ankama's part and it would delay new content, but that's not my question, I'm just wondering if they even can do what I suggest as a better alternative to a complete rollback. I'm curious as I been reading the arguments for or against rollbacks. I'm wondering if a better option exists that would not set honest players back, and you know minimize collateral damage.

Sorry, just curious as always.
Duped items have been spread all over the server and they've been used extensively. Rolling it back is not so easy - for instance, what if someone finished his relic with duped frags? And what about people who used duped gear to farm some top dungeon - it was an unfair advantage. Reviewing every single case would be a sisyphean task. You can come up with some convulted solutions, but there's simply no way to fix it.
The lesson to learn from here is - fix the root of the problem - with a proper way of handling items it would not be possible for 2 items with the same identity to coexist. I think that's the best thing they can do now.

Could someone update the latest beta items? FajneCycki posted the list few days ago but it is not working now.

It turns out I've only had 2 dollars left on my hosting account and apparently they've shut the server down :v But no worries as I redeployed it, and it's accessible here.

There's also a couple of new costumes:

Thousand and One Claws Costume

Star Costume

Reindeer Costume

Moon Costume

The entire list of items from beta. Data mined by FajneCycki.

Wish that it will be updated sooner or later with items/food stats and english text

also I wonder if people know what his nickname means :3
I adressed all of these problems right now (I've accidentally feeded it with old data, from 2 weeks ago). You can see item types and their use effects (food, weapons).
