  • Sadly dead. I've revisited 4 times and kept wanting to love it and main it. But the lack of community due to multiboxing and the huge changes to the exp system (no longer based on stars) made me give up permanently. I didn't even mind the 90% French 5% English 5% Spanish split. Made me want to make a name for English speakers. Sadly I'm stuck with OSRS and PoE now until EVE Echoes release in August.

  • 1.29 needs open, free to play servers. ACCESS TO MORE AREAS THAN WHATS GRANTED in f2p. BAN MULTI-ACCOUNTS. More tutorials, more advertisements and less focus on france.

  • Congratulations. The algoritham has been played into your favor. This video is merely the publicity that morphs the game into an active game. You gain following from a game you revive. Truly an interesting take on youtube success.

  • Played this game for 10 years on and off and have about 7 different accounts at 200 it’s a big part of my life and I’ll never forget about it but I don’t think this game will survive very long at this point

  • I don't think it's dead, it's just not very internationally friendly. If I knew french I'd get back into it for sure, since I absolutely love the art direction.
    From the comments though, I might give it a shot since apparently the mono-acc servers are still alive, hell yeah buddyyyyyy

  • Just those who played dofus at the very beginning, where there was not even a client to play with, using a browser having a hard time trying to update adobe flash know whats this map 0:31 represents. There was not even monsters man! It brings me great memories

  • Great video, thank you!
    No Dofus is definitely not dead, it's alive, and it's very exciting in term of gameplay, Ankama introduced variants which double the spells, you have to pick one spell or its variant so you can adapt or even have a more personal gameplay, vert few games offer that experience.
    The thing is, especially since the last 4 years, the game got major updates for very high level contents, it's way easier to get lv 200 now and so the leveling experience is a bit harsher because most of people will level up with leeching instead of making friends and grouping up to fight like before.
    So you can level up quickly, but you won't be able to have the ig money to buy your high level stuff…

  • I used to play as a kid, actually downloaded it again a few months ago and played for a day or two. Game looked really dead, and from what I gathered online from forums was that the most common method of progressing now was to buy currency with IRL money (which you can do now) and pay endgame players to boost you, until you yourself reach the endgame and can boost the new players. A shame, it's a really cool old game

  • I'm a person on the fritz from playing the game. Literally, I'm literally debating with myself whether or not it is a good time investment. ALL of which wouldn't be much of a debate if I hadn't watched the TV series on Netflix… that being Wakfu. Dofus I found out about after watching the Wakfu series and I want to watch Dofus as well; it hasn't come too Netflix yet. I've been thinking, 'should I start with Wakfu,' which is the series I'm familiar with or Dofus the series that happened 300 year prior too Wakfu? That and the game looks dated… is it worth the time investment? Will I have fun or a hard time? Do I love the series enough too ignore all that which counts as a negative for me? Debating never ceases and every now and then I watch a review video on either "Dofus" or "Wakfu" to tip the scales too one side or the other on playing. This video was more of a "Nah," but tipped back in "Favor" with the phone application. On the fritz till the next review from someone.

  • The game is very much alive, honestly. The mono-servers (single account servers like Illyzaelle and Jahash) are incredibly popular.

  • 7:45 Hey for REAL. I meant to jump into this game, since I remembered touching super briefly one of them years ago (don't know which!) and whenever I tried to get back in, I could never figure out which it was I just ended spending a ton of time researching what was the difference between the two anyways and never really got my answer. Just that Dofus was first and Wakfu second, but they DO look the same to me. Hell, this video itself kind of implies that they seem very similar but really aren't, and I still can't say I know the difference. lol

  • Recently met someone that lived in France for a number of years during his childhood, turns out we both played Dofus! I was astonished that someone else had heard of it due to no one else ever hearing of it!

  • I think that Ankama's problem is same as with Jagex. If your game is not instant hit you kill it with fire and bury deep under. Remaster is done pretty well! They have tuned music and that god awful Pandala tune is now listenable. Hopefully they make mono account retro server with group search since it came too late in to the game. Most people already started multiaccounting (and sharing) so community was already changing in to solo experience with mmo elements.

  • I'm a dual citizen who grew up in France, really interesting to see the point of view of someone outside of France about this game. It was a huge part of my childhood and I tend to jump back on every now and then with some friends to keep in touch being in a foreign country now, and also to go down memory lane ha.. really enjoyed your video, hope you find some joy playing this again.

    That's right for every ANKAMA games.

  • I played it back in 2005-2009 on and off – and then came back it must've been when it was with the trial island and the whole 2.0 thing going on 🙂 As you mentioned it's mainly fun played with friends, since i always had a big impression of the language blockade, mainly french people playing not very friendly nor interactive. But hey loved the game, the music and the whole feeling to it – came here to check if any english speaking people played it- glad i found your video quality coverage!

  • Hey if you're still playing and still looking to find people to play with you should go on Ilyzaelle, I think the server's pretty active and there's an active international community too ^^ And I'd be down to play with you of course

  • I still get nostalgic when I played this game about 10+ year ago. I have tried it several times later but it's serious time killer. I have managed to get to 100 level max back then in 2015. Later I couldn't find areas where to farm easily (I died often) and I got no more quests so I was lost. Most of the players are French so I dont understand a single word on chat in on international. When I first time played Dofus, it was on Rushu. Even non-sub areas were filled with people. Everyone used to camp Crackrock, when they spawned everyone rushed to get that fight (they were probably named different back then). Also what keeps me from no playing again is monthly paying subscription like in WoW. I dont want to spend that much money just for playing.

  • Wakfu is a sequel to Dofus, The lore for Wakfu is 1000 years after dofus, classes are much more powerful (Fecas now have the omnitrix and Osamodas are pokemon masters now for example) and there are some that seem to have gone extinct in the war against Ogrest (R.I.P Steamers)

  • 10:54 No lol, You can literally buy in-game currency with real money by Ogrins, Dofus Touch is actually a lot more populated and that game is pure P2W with it's gems you can just buy anything and everything.

    The game competed with itself and miss managed, Ankama has became hated company from internal problems and the founders were just a bunch of college students made it big and got continuously greedier. The story of this game goes a lot LOT deeper but i reckon it will be hard to get a grasp of it without understanding french.

  • This game was my life when I was a kid. Horrible childhood, but this was my escape. I'll never forget how the people I've met there made me feel like I found my place in the world. It may sound sad but it was some of the most enjoyable moments of my life.

  • I think the biggest problem with Dofus is Ankama just thinks about money. Whatever they say when you download the game, it’s not free at all. When I was child, I always wanted to go to Amakna, Pandawa, etc.. but I didn’t have money, I was just a kid.. now, the magic is gone, i don’t want to spend money playing a “free game”, all my friends who were playing don’t play anymore and I can’t imagine being “prisoned” a mensal subscription MMORPG game.. sadly.

  • I played it a lot with my friends back in the day, but recently I've been looking to play the game again. The problem now is that the game itself need people to help each other out, dungeons and certain missions require 2-4 or sometimes even 8 players. And I don't have anyone irl or online that plays the game anymore, so I end up paying kamas to players in the community chat just so they would come and help me finish it. It's super tiring.

  • For me it is dead.
    There are some major things that happened for me that lead to this.

    One was a security mistake where they had you take contact to get back youre acount.
    There me and my little brother lost or big account. This made my little brother quit and me play on further on a lowwer account i had.

    Second was that they became more and more beginner unfriendly.
    I was playing to earn money and to train jobs. But then they gave all low lvl enemy (like piwi and boar) so mush more health and movement. It made my farming take so mush more time and i couldnt even defeat them eneymore with some.

    Then what happened whas that they made it able to upgrade items.
    It was not that bad but one thing that happened because of this was that you could never put on youre wings. Poeple with max account made fresh ones and put upgraded stuff on them. Then they as a lvl 21 attacked me, a lvl 48 and killed me. And the fun part was that they couldn not lose points because they were "to low".

    Then they made the game more healthy and made it so my summon spam osa couldn not work in groeps because if an other osa did a summun all others had the same spell on CD. Wich was fine because i get the point but still it made my 12 summon build useless with friends. And i was free to play so i had put a lot of kamash and time in it. One thing this lead to was that i could not play with my osa friends again because we could not spam animore and made so i had to play more solo, something that Dofus wanned to avoid?

    And then it happened that they took away the 21 spells and made it 40 or so. This made it that the game i ones LOVED to play was no more.

    My best moment was to spam my summons, farms low lvl piwi to sell feathers or use them myself to lvl my profecion.
    Best memery i have is getting attacked by someone with winges and getting a knight on my side that alone killed my opponent. And the moment i fought 3 vs 3 and it was me vs a Iop. We were running around a building and i was spamming and he killed them. Then i summoned my aly back and kept running. He destroyed that aly and i respawned him. It took a long time but we won. ^^

  • when your p2p ends in the middle of no where and you cant use the zaap and out of potions is the one of the most stupid things that could happen lol
    the good thing they did is dofus mobile its still the old dofus 2.0 with the new spell setup and its full free.

    the most i like is wakfu but i dont know what happen to the game now last time i logged in it was almost dead and new item system i did not really like very much.
    i think those games have their Community so we can not say its dead, i do like this type of games to be honest so yeah thats my opinion !

  • The game feels anything but dead on Illy there’s queues to get into the game because so many people are coming back to it. Ankara also announced a cheaper server switch so players that can’t get into illy will probably populate other servers.

  • Dofus is super good and unique, together with Osrs and Tibia they make up the trifecta of the best MMOs in my opinion. Most other MMOs are WoW-like.

  • Im from dominican republic, and played from the 1.29 to the 2.3 i think. The game is not dead, but its dying. Back in my days there was 7 servers for the hispanic community, but after a few years, due to the lack of playersz they had to fuse all of them into only 2 servers, wich are Atcham and Rubilax.

    Currently, sadly, the population is still decreasing and they are considering in make just 1 server for the hispanic community.

  • Retro may be the worst version for a new player. It's just veterans with multi-accounts with little to no regard towards begginers. The mono server is the best dofus experience right now, thanks to it's very high population and being a relatively new server. Multi-account servers are just devoid of any engaging interaction between the players.
