Wakfu is going to hit us with a character wipe, give us a patch, and new classes.
Thanks to Gouki.com I was able to get a Beta key for Wakfu (a beta that has been going on for 2+ years). Less than a week of playing and my first character is about to get wiped, not a big deal I'm not that far, and you need to do it to get the other classes tested.
But so far there is plenty of fun to be had in the game. I started off with a Plant Summoner, and at a level 8 already have the class spells learned as well as most of the elemental. What's cool about this is your spells level up as you use them. So unlike other rpgs the vine attack you start with is not useless. Durring your intro to the game you earn some armor that is made of the creatures you are killing. You can later craft your own items from materials you collect. Right now all the jobs are open to any character type, so you can take on all the jobs if you choose. The jobs split in two groups crafters, and harvesters. As a crafter you can be a chef, a baker, a handyman, jewler, a weaponsmith, an armourer, a leather trader, and a tailor. As a harvester you can collect the materials needed for crafting. The options are miner, fisherman, lumberjack, trapper, farmer, and herbalist. And right now you can mint your own money, but I guess before this patch the creatures dropped money. This matters because NPcs do not buy or sell, the economy is entirely player driven. Needles to say there is a lot to be done.
They list 14 character types you can play as http://www.wakfu.com/na/mmorpg/game-guide/classes, 4 of them are available right now. The Plant summoner that I chose, you also have the archer, the healer, and the warrior.
On the 21st they are bringing in the cat people/ gamblers, and the treasure hunters, as well as a political system. They still have plenty of things waiting to be tested before the open beta this summer. And I intend to keep making new classes as we get them to see what the game has to offer, but so far it's looking pretty good.
