Why control just one character when you can control three? That’s the core of Wakfu‘s new Heroes system, and the latest development blog explains that it seems like a simple concept while being very difficult to actually implement. Companies are the game’s way of adapting to the demands of letting players control three characters from a single account, and while they offer both power and rewards, they also have restrictions.
Players may have one company per account, and a single character is selected as the leader of that company. All other characters need to be part of the same nation and guild as the leader (or be unguilded) in order to work together under the new system. This is also done with an eye toward keeping things balanced in GvG and national PvP systems. Read the full diary for more details on what players can expect from the mechanical side.
