Wakfu is a free to play 2D anime-style MMORPG with unique features like a ecosystem, citizenship and much more featuring tactical turn-based combat, vast character customization, and a deep player influenced world.
One of the goals of the game is to develop your character, not only by finding its place in the world of Wakfu, but also by improving its characteristics and battle skills. Play as one of 14 character classes. Players can choose to be an insanely-strong warrior, a magical healer, an assassin or even a summoner of plants or animals, among several other playable character classes, each with a total of 25 spells. Choose the hero who most reminds you of yourself and set off on an adventure!
In Wakfu, a player's actions affect the environment. If they kill a monster, it might be gone for good, and if they mine an ore, it might never appear in the game again. Players will have to carefully choose when they should protect or exploit their environment's natural resources.
Wakfu is one of the few MMORPGs which manages fights against other players (PvP), as well as fights against monsters (PvM) in a turn-based style. This is one of the really unique aspects of the game. When you launch an attack, a force field appears and the participants can deploy their very best strategy tactics to defeat their opponents.
Wakfu is available on Windows, Mac, and Linux PC systems.

The game is fun, good amount of classes, professions, dungeons, and hidden chests. They're 5 factions ( 5th came out with the Scram class update) with each one having minor advantages. You also get a mini personal world inside a bag, it's like a housing system.
The subscription (boost) gives:
•Earn 15% more EXP points in combat and quests
•Get 5% more chance to drop items at the end of combats - they added a extra section to loot window so you can see what you could of got if you was subbed
•Earn 15% more Kamas at the end of the combat
•Your secondary characters will receive an EXP bonus according to your main character level
•You can fill your health with one click (using Bread) - you spam click without it
•And vote for governor’s elections - you can run for governor for free though, this stops rigged elections
•Get twice more tokens at the end of main dungeons - instead of 5 its 10
The draw backs to the game would be bugs of course, time, and customer service.
Bugs: plants that cant be harvested, bag glitches, & whatever others ones you can find or hope not to find.
Time: The game is a grind, with the last big update they put in some quests but over all you will be grinding gathering profession ingredients, monsters, or dungeons with a party.
Customer service: I've not had a problem, but you can easily go to the forums and read posts on how long people waited or are still waiting on there problem. The US forum seems to be slow on info when it comes to unexpected crashes, delays, and etc. Best bet is to check out the Asian forum for news when it comes to that. At least that's how it was before steam don't know if that changed anything.
Last part would be a personal issue related to harvesting. Tree's, plants, and farms are ran by players. lol ill just say I see to much ash trees an barren areas.
If you decide to pick up the game, relax don't bother trying to power level yourself to 160 you'll burn yourself out. Seen people come in wave after wave and do it. Try classes out, pick one, do the beginner quests, and join a guild. They're a lot of advantages to guilds it wouldn't hurt.
french based game that has 0 care for their english players
played for a year and i would not recommend this game to anyone
from constant people duping to a support that takes over 3 months to answer a ticket this game is ill ran and not worth investing your time in to
like Dofus, it's extremely limited,
and mostly to starter zones
It's like clothes window shopping, you can be free to look all you want,
but if you want to take the clothes home, you have to pay
The bad: The free to play implementation is absolutely terrible, giving you only 1 main quest, a few dungeons, the astrub sewers and the zenith. The area you can play is small, and when you join a nation, they deceive you by not letting you kill any of the monsters in that nation. You can see all there is to see in about 2 or 3 days, and if you don't plan on subscribing and you really want to play this game, the leveling will be very tedious and dull.
My opinion: If you can take the bad with the good, then this game is definitely worth a try. Small file size, fun combat, and a friendly community somewhat make up for the lack of anything to do. This game is fun, but gets infinitely more fun when you bring 1 friend with voice chat.
Don't get me wrong, the game is fun, but there's alot more bad then good for free players. if you don't plan on subbing, i would suggest maybe play for a week then move on, cause by that point, you will have seen most of the areas. If you like the game enough to want to sub, the game opens up in ways most people never get to see. I suggest try it and see what side of the line you are on. Either way, it's fun while you play it.
The best and most original game around that will keep you occupied for hours and you have so much control over the environment, government and how you play the game!
Loads of fun and great community :)
