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.
Professions have always played an important role in DOFUS, as nearly every item used by players must be crafted by the players, and craftspeople and harvesters are essential and indispensable to the game. However, the profession system itself hasn’t evolved much over the years, as we’ve mainly only added new professions and new recipes. It was time to take a step back and improve the system as a whole. For the 2.29 update, we have therefore planned some significant changes for the professions, which we’ve already been working on for several months.

Update 2.29 will reveal a new system of managing Critical Hits in the game.

Starting on 5 March of this year, subscriptions and the gifts that come with the subscriptions will be offered in the form of "packs". The subscription periods will still be 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year – and this will not change. If you wish to subscribe, you'll always be able to choose one of these 5 basic packs. The prices will not change either.
Sadida Revamp Devblog - February 03, 2015 - [Briss]
The Sadida class spells and gameplay need updating and improvement, despite the changes made to most of its spells two years ago. The class had a lot of trouble finding its place in groups, be it when fighting players or monsters. We put this trouble down to summons that aren’t very resistant, gameplay based a bit too much on these same summons, some spells that are obsolete when used within groups, and some damage spells that aren’t effective enough.
Obtaining Smithmagic Runes - February 02, 2015 - [Briss]
In update 2.27, we’re going to improve the way Smithmagic runes are obtained.

We’re not happy with the current system in which only a small number of different low-level items are used to create runes.
If the hat fits… - January 15, 2015 - [Izmar]
Ahhh, ten years have gone by, and in that time the hats and helmets have really piled up, with models in all shapes and sizes for players to choose from! But adapting hats to suit all the different classes is no mean feat...
In the 2.26 update which will be released in December, we have decided to review the way characteristics points (Strength, Chance, etc.) work and the way base points (gained each time you level up) and extra points (from characteristic scrolls) are stored.
Xelor Devblog - November 21, 2014 - [Briss]
As promised, after the Feca rework we’ll be revamping the Xelor class, anticipated for the update at the beginning of December.
Ask any game designers, they will tell you that the first few minutes of game-play are critical: that's when the player gets to discover the game, and decide whether it's worth their time or not. That's why we put a lot of care into Incarnam, Astub and the whole new player experience, but what happens before all that?
The 2.23 Update will reveal the third Divine Dimension. We'll take this opportunity to make significant modifications to the accessibility of Dimensions and the way they work. The Divine Dimensions still aim to offer a content requiring a great deal of preparation and a lot of caution. Failure in these areas is much more punishing than in the rest of the game, these areas are more dangerous, they include game mechanics that are more complex (combat modifiers and monster waves), and they're harder to access than classic areas.
We have however decided to simplify some concepts and to make accessing these areas easier, without compromising our original vision and goals.
In the 2.23 Update, we will be making several modifications to the treasure hunting system in order to make them more appealing, a little bit more 'resilient' against tools that allow one to resolve them instantly, and we will improve the way we're taking visual impediments into account.
Feca Devblog - August 21, 2014 - [lichen]
It's been the subject of discussion and debate for months and months, but finally, you're going to find out exactly how Fecas will change after their revamp!
The Epic Server will be a new type of server where the characters' death is permanent in PvM but not in PvP.
This server will be called "Shadow". Here's a little summary of his story:

"A creature born from Ereziah's shadow and the Ebony Dofus, Shadow is fascinated with the void. For him, there is no half-measure or grey area: there is no life after death, only emptiness. Some heroes have been influenced by this radical way of seeing the Krosmoz: they refuse reincarnation of any sort. For them, there can only be one destination, as finale as it is eternal. Their journey is thus made that much more epic."
This time, [Toun] joins us to introduce some quality-of-life improvements that we have planned for update 2.21!
