Before creating a character
To play Wakfu you will need to create an Ankama account and download the game client. On the login-screen, enter your username and password. Due to an Ankama decision, you will automatically be assigned to a server based on your location. To change servers, you will need to contact Ankama support who will provide you with a new account for the server of your choice.
To play Wakfu on steam you will need to download the game and it will automatically connect you to your steam account. You still only have servers based on your location.
You can make 5 characters per server or for limited time you can buy more slots.
There are currently eight servers:
- Aerafal (French speaking)
- Dathura (French speaking, but also accessible to Spain and Latin America)
- Remington (International English speaking)
- Elbor (Spanish speaking)
- Amara (German speaking)
- Nox (North American English speaking)
- Efrim (Portuguese speaking)
- Phaeris (Asia-Pacific English Speaking, has a separate client)
Creating a Character
Click on one of the 5 empty slots to create a new character.
Choose from 17 different classes. Different classes have many different roles/builds and greatly impact gameplay.
Cras are proud archers.
Ecaflips are the gamblers of the land.
Eliotropes are manipulators of space.
Eniripsas are fairy-like healers.
Enutrofs are greedy treasure hunters.
Fecas are specialists in shields and protecting allies.
Foggernaut are robotic masters in sabotage.
Iops are fierce close-combat fighters.
Huppermages are rune masters.
Masqueraiders are acrobatic combatants who wear masks that give them powers.
Osamodas are summoners.
Pandawas are a race of pandas, typically fond of the bottle.
Rogues are cunning bandits who use bombs and guns.
Sacriers are obsessed with pain and get their powers from it.
Sadidas summon dolls and control the environment.
Srams are stealthy combatants.
Xelors enjoy meddling with time and space.
Select your character's sex by selecting the male or female sign. Sex does not have any effect on your character in combat. It only has cosmetic impact such as: pose, stance, emotes sounds and appearance.
On the "Customize" screen, you can select three colors for your character, which affect how your character's sprite will appear on the map and combat screens. This does not have any effect on your character except for the appearance. (Please note: Your colors cannot be changed, so choose carefully!)
The customizable colors are skin, hair and eyes. Only the offered colors can be selected, but by selecting one, a shade of the color can be chosen instead (eye color does not have shades). The specific colors available to you are dependent on your class and gender.
Select a name for your character. It cannot conflict with an existing character on that server. There is also other various restrictions of the type of names that can be created.
Once you have created your character, your character will have no nation and you will be starting at Incarnam. Incarnam is the starting area where you will be taught about some of the aspects of the game.
Please note that at any time, you can click back to any of the Character Creation windows. You can also push escape to go back to the character select screen.
Any character can be deleted. It will only ask you once 'Do you really want to delete (Player name) forever?' so be careful.
