Wakfu - Dev Sneak Peek: The Rogue Class

Hi everyone,

Today we wanted to share with you the Game Design document of the Rogue Class. Existing mechanics from the previous version of the Rogue class have been kept in-tact while instead pushing the boundaries (and theme) of each elemental branch.

While we believe the below information should be solid, final direction and capabilities may change based on both internal play testing and community feedback and thus giving you the possibility of having a direct impact on how the class turns out!

So here we go...

The Rogue

As you will see below, the bomb system was kept as this was the foundation of the class, however the spells themselves have changed. First, bombs are no longer part of the third elemental branch with only two surviving within in the Fire element. However, as for Sadidas and their dolls, Rogues will be able to place spells on their bombs to increase their efficiency; only fire spells will allow doing this, however.

To summarize the theme of each branch, here is a list of them:

FIRE: Bombs and gadgets
AIR: Blades (daggers and swords)
EARTH: Pistols


When do they trigger?

Upon charges reaching 0
Special: When one is thrown at an enemy, it instantly explodes.
Special: Bombs do not trigger when being stepped on nor do they block Line-of-Sight.

Range / Area of Effect:

All bombs have a range / Area-of-Effect of 2 in a line. Upon single use, they all have the same reach.

However, when used in a “combo” their Area-of-Effect goes from a line of 2 to a square. This means that, no matter which “combo”, each bomb will be encircled by its Area-of-Effect. Furthermore, this reach is displayed, and special tiles appear around each bomb similar to that of the outskirts of a combat bubble.


When three or more bombs are within the Area-of-Effect of each other, a wall is created around each one of them. This fire wall appears on each tile next to a bomb, and deals 30 FIRE damage (evolving) to whomever walks across them.

Note: Bombs are subject to Mechanics.

BOMB 1 (Unnamed)

This bomb directly explodes in the face of an enemy or can be placed on the ground waiting for a distracted bystander.

4 AP 1-3 Range
Damage: 4/40 CH: 6/60
6 Charges. Can be placed on the ground (and wait for the 6 charges to expire) or thrown directly on an enemy and explode at him.

BARBFIRE (Temporary Name)

The Rogue uses a magical barbwire-like whip to teach his enemy a lesson. When used on a bomb, this spell adds a charge.
