Play!

We are opening a contest for all lovers of DOFUS and the way of the World of Twelve. Show your skill and knowledge to the world; win fabulous prizes; AND above all, give something back to the community that provided both the love and the fiero that put you where you are today!



 





For years, our community has been a cradle of great writers, researchers, artists, and representatives of the best human material that Ankama has ever known. It's time to put these players in the spotlight and reward them with a contest that offers many excellent rewards!



Get to the point! How do I win?



Any player, regardless of their level, status, or nationality should write a PvP or PvM guide for their follow International players. This guide can be on any class, for any level, and involve weapons, strategies, shields, mounts, etc... the only limit is your heart! The best guides will win prizes and will be published in future issues of the DOFUS Mag. Please be sure to attach images to be used with your guide so it will be clear for the visual learners!



But that's not all! This contest is also for roleplayers who can write with the wit and grace of the Bard, and scholars who have pierced the deepest realms of DOFUS lore! The best article on Roleplay, Research, Lore, Secret Areas, or any other subjects within the same general area will be published in the DOFUS Mag and also win prizes! Please be sure to attach images to be used with your article in order to better illustrate your creativity.



Oh, but we're still not done! For our Fanartists... we're offering a spot in the Glorious Gallery, where the best and brightest can have their best work put on full display. Fanartists of all ages, please send us your very best DOFUS artwork (only one, please). We will select the top 5 out of all the submissions and publish them in the DOFUS Mag. And naturally, these 5 artists will also win an excellent prize!



So what do we win? Can I get a Magic Orb?



The satisfaction of having done something for the English-speaking community is great... but! We don't expect our winners to live on praise alone. Along with publication in the DOFUS Mag, which will pretty much cement your fame and notoriety on every English and International server, our winners will also receive:

Wow awesome contest! The deadline is really soon though T.T Especially since its end of semester crunch time :x

Just a few questions:

What are the number of entry limitations per person? Is it one entry per category or just a general one entry per person rule?

What format would the articles have to be in? Word document? PDF?

Also any guidelines we should be aware for say, length and word count and what not for the articles?


Sorry for the million questions x)

"The best article on Roleplay, Research, Lore, Secret Areas, or any other subjects..."

Dofus employees cannot write accurate English articles, so perhaps they wish to learn the language, which is laudable as well as long overdue.

All seriousness aside, this should be fun for the texting generation.

Properly reading Izmar's post would have told you where to send the articles.

It took us a little while to get the permission to use these new, unreleased emotes, and the deadline for Dofus Mag #4 is coming quickly.

I realize that it's a bit short, but unfortunately, there wasn't any help for it this time. ^^''

And where exactly is this offer? I don't see any limited offer in the Dofus Mag #3 Purchase page. There are only the Mag and 2 pieces of Imako Set, where is the limited time offer of 1 piece of the Vampyro Set, Izmar said in DOFUS Mag issue #3?
