A little while ago, we asked for your opinion on the Dofus interfaces. After collecting and analyzing the scores of feedback you provided, we started thinking about ways to optimize your game experience.
DDoS Prevention - July 27, 2016 - [Izmar]
PvP tournaments and other community events are – sadly – often the target of DDoS-type attacks, carried out by killjoys suffering from a lack of attention. In order to ensure these events run smoothly, here is some information and advice which will help you protect yourself against such attacks.
 
GOULTARMINATOR VIII - June 02, 2016 - [Izmar]
We are slowly but steadily getting ready for the 8th instalment of the Goultarminator. Before we get started on the selection phases and the fights themselves, let's go over the main bullet points of this year's rules!
In Update 2.35, we have decided to halve the number of experience points needed to go up from level 199 to level 200.
The 2.35 Update will also include a new underwater extension and equipment from level 200. We thought it would be interesting to use this update as an opportunity to make the content and rewards more accessible.
 
Community Challenges - April 05, 2016 - [lichen]

In version 2.34, we are introducing a new feature to the game called Community Challenges. This is a system that allows you to offer challenges to other players and to win kamas by betting on their success or failure. This feature is a "tool". The players are the ones who determine what type of challenges they would like to offer to the community.

Eniripsa reworking - April 04, 2016 - [Briss]

Eniripsa class spells have evolved very little over the years. This is the class in which the attacking panel, made up of just 3 spells, was the weakest. Its main role as healer could justify this operation in part, but we want each class to have interesting and sufficiently diversified offensive capacities. What’s more, certain healing spells were redundant and the Word of Thorn spell has, amongst other things, always had a problem finding its place with the Eniripsa.

So we have reviewed all the spells in the class so as not to impair it: the Eniripsa keeps its healing role and the majority of its spells have kept the same role. However, we wanted to offer more varied healing capacities, in particular thanks to the new spells in the Air and Water route, more interesting support capacities and minor improvements in utility spells.

Guild Notices - March 29, 2016 - [lichen]
We are planning a Guild Notice system (similar to a “Message of the Day” ), for the 2.34 update. The system will facilitate desynchronized communication and organization among guild members (organize a dungeon, a Perceptor’s attack, plan an event, send vital information, a funny joke and so on).
 

In the April update, we are adding a new messaging system for players in combat: instant messages.
 

Improved state display - November 27, 2015 - [lichen]
The arrival of Haven Bags is not the only thing that will make life better for you in DOFUS. There are also other improvements, such as the state display. As there began to be more and more states, they became increasingly less visible (unless you performed a time-consuming check), so we decided to optimise the state display...
New Huppermage class - November 25, 2015 - [Briss]
These are mages who have the art and ability to control the elements. That’s pretty much most of what you know about the new class of Huppermages in DOFUS. But how do they use these elements? How do they combine them? Find out the answers in this Devblog!
World map search feature - November 20, 2015 - [lichen]
Among the new features in the next update, you’ll find a world map search tool. Search for monsters, areas, resources, items and other points of interest: we will make your life as an adventurer easier! For full details, read the devblog!
 
Haven Bags - November 17, 2015 - [lichen]

Haven Bags are finally coming to DOFUS with build 2.32, allowing you to customize the inside of a house while giving you extra storage space.

During the 2.27 update, the Smithmagic rune generation system was significantly modified. When the old stocks of runes began to disappear gradually, certain imbalances became more and more evident, and we decided to make several improvements to this system in version 2.31.
 
The Inter-Server Kolossium Alpha Test - Development - October 12, 2015 - [MrFourbasse]
The Inter-Server Kolossium (ISK) has been long-awaited by many of you. We have been working on this system for a long time and now we need your help to go further.

We need to test a number of features with real players, which is why the alpha version of ISK is now available on the beta server. However, not all of the ISK’s functionalities are available at this time and some of them are still in development.
 
Groups of Idols - August 25, 2015 - [lichen]

Since the Idol system came into being, we've received a lot of feedback from players who have encountered difficulties when making frequent Idol changes between fights. Initially, we weren't expecting players to change Idols so often, but this is something we would like to encourage. We've recently been working on an custom set system for Idols that we've named "Groups of Idols".

Recycling and nuggets - August 18, 2015 - [lichen]

In update 2.30 we are introducing a new mechanism for generating nuggets. The current passive generation system no longer suits us as it is not regulated by real demand and it is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain a stable destruction of nuggets over time, since the generation process is continuous.

Consequently we have worked on a new nugget generation system which is based on recycling resources and items.
 

Constructive Criticism We received an enormous amount of feedback following the updating of jobs applied in Version 2.29. Here is a summary of the main issues that we intend to correct in version 2.30:
  • Some resources are far too rare and make the manufacturing of items (including consumables) too difficult.
  • Recipes for consumables are sometimes too complex, and the dependence on other professions is too restrictive.
  • The profession of fisherman is too difficult to level and the absence of certain protectors is penalizing.
  • Progression in the profession of hunter is too laborious.

 
Softcap Standardization - August 13, 2015 - [Briss]
Characteristics softcaps for the majority of classes have not changed since the game came out in 2004, and they generally suffer from balancing issues: it’s more worthwhile to invest points in certain characteristics, and other characteristics are neglected because the investment isn’t nearly as profitable. For example, it’s easier for a Feca or an Eniripsa to invest points in Intelligence, while a Iop or Ecaflip would be better off investing in Strength.
 
As part of the Festival of Bonta, Piers Boredman is proud to welcome Pouchecot, Protector of the Month of Frauguctor.It’s a first for those inhabitants of the World of Twelve who’ve never had the pleasure of being addressed by a Protector. Today, the one we call ‘The Fruitcake’ is here to tell us all about this special day with much love in his heart. And laughter...
Every summer, the temperature rises off the Otomai Coast. The ground shakes, and rumblings can be heard in the bowels of the earth. Could this be one of celebrated troubadour David Gettalife’s massive raves? Even better! It’s the reopening of Vulkania Park! And if you venture in there, you’ll end up raving about it too!
Goultarminator VII - June 11, 2015 - [Nerodos]
Are you feeling this tense atmosphere? Like somethin' is brewin' and bout to begin...  An ever so subtle mix of fear, excitation, and impatience... Nothing more normal: the Goultarminator is coming in from the East!
In the 2.29 update, the professions system has been improved, so we used this opportunity to make in-depth improvements to the Smithmagic interfaces also. The effects list display is largely based on a player mod, created by ExiTeD then reworked by Relena. Thanks go to both of you!
 
 

For the 2.29 update, we have been working on Incarnam. We’ve improved its graphics, updated the monsters of the area, optimised the maps and reduced the size of the area to cut out the large amount of travelling that was involved for some quests...

Find out more below the cut!
 

The Idol System - May 13, 2015 - [lichen]
The idol system is a new concept that allows players to increase their XP and loot rewards by increasing combat difficulty. It will be introduced in the 2.29 update.
