The class balancing beta is now available via the "DOFUS Touch Early" app! It will be running for much of the summer; find out what's new in this changelog.

DOFUS Touch 2019 Balancing Beta

SPANISH

Before We Get Started


As you know, balancing generates a lot of feedback and debate! In order to provide guidance and to debate under ideal conditions, we decided to put a few rules in place. If you'd like to be heard by the staff and the rest of the community, here's what you should remember:
 
  • All feedback about the beta must be made in this section of the official forum (you may need to log out and back in to enable access);
  • A topic is available for each class modified, as well as for each related topic – that's where you can provide your feedback and suggestions;
  • There's no point in suggesting additional changes – only potential adjustments will be made to the changes laid out in this changelog;
  • A single topic will be available to report any bugs encountered;
  • All messages that are barely debated and do not further the debate will be deleted and sanctioned where appropriate;
  • All your feedback will be read and analyzed by the staff, but do not expect a systematic response.
 

Accessing the Beta Version of the Game


The beta is available now!

To access it:
 
  • If you're on an Apple device, visit the App Store, look up the "DOFUS Touch Early" app, and download it.
  • With Google, you'll need to use this link on your mobile device to access it.

If you are unable to perform the update, please reinstall the application completely.

No actions performed in this version of the game will have any impact on the classic servers.

Please don't forget that this is a beta version and you might encounter various issues, as the point is to correct them before the official update!
 

Osamodas Class Revamp


The Osamodas class has been completely revamped so as to offer a more balanced and interesting gameplay. To find out more, please read the dedicated devblog.
 

Changes to the Other Classes


Characteristics Threshold Revamp


With a view to offering three viable elemental paths to each class and diversifying the quantity of equipment available to each class as much as possible, in the long run, we think it's important to balance all the classes' characteristics thresholds on the same basis, namely:
 
  • 1 for 1 up to 100
  • 2 for 1 up to 200
  • 3 for 1 up to 300
  • 4 for 1 up to 400

For this phase of balancing, we chose to focus on five classes to which we wanted to apply changes: Sadida, Sram, Rogue, Feca, and Osamodas.

For each of these classes (excluding Rogue), this balancing of the thresholds will go hand in hand with readjusting the damage and/or characteristics of certain spells so they'll better match the new possibilities of that class. Higher thresholds will actually make it possible to reach sometimes much greater numbers of characteristics and it is therefore necessary to take them into account in the damage values that spells can inflict.
 

Sadida


The changes to the Sadida class aim to makes its gameplay more interesting by enhancing synergies between its various spells and, therefore, its area-control potential. By adding more utilitarian effects, such as earthquake or healing, we also tried to make it easier to integrate it into different PvP and PvM make-ups at all levels.
 

Spell Changes


Aggressive Bramble
 
  • The AP cost has been changed: 5 → 4
  • The critical hit rate has been increased:
  • The maximum range at spell level 6 has been reduced 7 → 6
  • An MP-stealing effect (dodgeable) has been added for each spell
  • The maximum number of casts per turn is now 2

Tree of Life
 
  • It is now possible to use this spell on a Tree.
  • If the spell is cast on a doll, the player automatically recovers 1 AP.
  • The spell can no longer be cast on an allied Sadida's Summons.

These changes will make the spell more flexible in use while anticipating it will remain interesting.

Soothing Bramble
 
  • Removes 3 MP for each level of the spell.
  • The spell no longer heals enemies.
  • The spell no longer reduces allies' MP.
  • The spell range is no longer modifiable.
  • The spell no longer has critical hits.

These changes will highlight Sadidas' support and hindrance role.

Tree
 
  • The Summons's resistances have been changed
  • The AP cost has been reduced: 3 → 2
  • The recast time is reduced at each spell level.

With a view to making Sadidas' trees more interesting, in addition to serving as a target for the Tree of Life Summons, it will be able to serve as a relay for the Inflatable's heals in order to strengthen the area-control potential.

Earthquake
 
  • The spell's effects have been changed.
  • Casts a spell on each tree on the battlefield that:
    • Inflicts Fire damage on opponents
    • Reveals invisible enemies
    • Attracts the entities present by one cell

Doll Knowledge
 
  • The spell's effects have been changed.
  • Temporarily increases dolls' Vitality.

Poisoned Wind
 
  • The spell's effects have been changed.
  • Kills the targeted doll or tree and inflicts an Earth poison in an area of effect lasting two turns.
  • If the spell is cast on a doll, the caster recovers 1 AP.

Dolls

Dolls' Vitality and characteristics have been increased.

Dolls' resistances have been changed.

Dolls now have a passive spell: Compost. When a doll dies, the Tree spell recast time is reset to zero.
 
  • The Ultra-Powerful
    • The doll no longer skips its turn without doing anything.
 
  • Sacrificial Doll
    • The level-6 Summons's range has been increased to 3.
    • The damage inflicted by the Sacrificial Doll is now in the Earth element.
    • Base damage has been reduced.
    • The initial cooldown of the doll's explosion has been removed. The doll will explode as soon as it encounters an opponent.
    • New spell: At the start of each of its turns, the Sacrificial Doll's damage and Vitality will be increased (stackable 3 times). It effectively becomes interesting to anticipate using it in order to maximize its potential.
 
  • Madoll
    • The Irritation spell is no longer shared with other in-game monsters, which should improve the AI's calculation time
    • The spell effects are now visible in the timeline.
 
  • Inflatable Doll
    • Healing the doll can now be performed around the player's trees as well.

General
 
  • The acquisition level for certain spells has been changed in order to better distribute the attack elements as well as the capacities.

Following the balancing of the characteristics thresholds, the following spells have been changed:
 
  • Bramble
    • Critical damage has been increased.
    • Damage inflicted on critical hits is no longer of a fixed value.
    • A maximum number of casts per turn has been added: max. 3/turn.
 
  • Manifold Bramble
    • Damage has been increased at all spell levels.
    • Increases the rate of Critical Hits.
    • Damage inflicted on critical hits is no longer of a fixed value.
    • The spell no longer inflicts damage on any of the caster's Summons.

  • Dolly Sacrifice
    • The range has been changed: 4 → 3
    • Damage has been increased at all spell levels.
    • Increases the rate of Critical Hits.
 
  • Wild Grass
    • Damage is increased at all levels for the spell.
    • The spell effects are now visible in the timeline.
 
  • Bush Fire
    • A maximum number of casts per turn has been added: max. 3/turn.
    • Damage has been increased at all spell levels.
    • Damage inflicted on critical hits is no longer of a fixed value.
 

Feca


The Feca class has been modified so as to make it more versatile in its support and hindrance role to the detriment of its AP reduction potential, which made it too powerful a class in PvP. It now has three distinct paths and more spells thanks to the groupings of armor.

The way glyphs currently work was too decisive as a round progressed, which is why we wanted to orient the Feca class toward glyphs with a greater variety of uses (Range reduction, MP reduction, etc.). However, their impact is limited to the glyph's area of effect, which makes the opponent's positioning more strategic to optimize their use.

With a view to not fully obstructing a round due to glyph stacking, using an elemental glyph will prevent another one from being used during the same turn.
 

Spell Changes


Aggressive Glyph
 
  • The spell now inflicts Earth damage on enemies and increases the close-combat damage of entities inside the glyph.

Blinding Glyph
 
  • The spell now inflicts Water damage on enemies and reduces the range of entities inside the glyph.

Burning Glyph
 
  • The spell still inflicts Fire damage and now reduces the MP of entities inside the glyph.

  • Replaces the Immobilisation Glyph.
  • Reduces the Lock of entities inside the glyph.

Repulsion Glyph
 
  • The spell damage has been reduced at levels 1–5.

Blindness
 
  • The AP reduction becomes 2 at all spell levels.
  • The spell damage has been increased.
  • The spell now inflicts Earth damage.
  • The spell area of effect is now a diagonal cross.

Reinforced Protection
 
  • The spell's effects have been changed.
  • Increases the resistance to pushback damage as well as the critical resistances of the target for 1 turn.
  • The effects cannot be unbewitched.

Rampart
 
  • Replaces Earth Shield.
  • Reduces damage (all elements) suffered by the caster and their allies.

Heroism

    • The range has been changed for all spell levels.
    • Critical damage is no longer of a fixed value.
    • The chances of critical hits have been increased.
 

Sram


Changing the Sram characteristics thresholds was the opportunity to give the class more-specialized elemental paths, orienting the class in one (or more!) elements based on the preferred gaming style.

The elemental paths will be generally oriented as follows:
 
  • Fire path: networks of traps and movements
  • Air path: poisons
  • Earth path: raw damage and damage traps
 

Resulting Spell Changes


Mist
 
  • Replaces Invisibility of Another.
  • Creates an area of effect that makes entities that cross it invisible. It works the same way as Feca glyphs.

Epidemic
 
  • Replaces Chakra Impulse.
  • Applies an Air poison at the end of turn that is transferred to nearby enemies.

Repelling Trap
 
  • The spell now inflicts Fire damage on enemies.

Sap Trap

  • The trap's area of effect is now single cell.

  • If used on an enemy, reduces damage inflicted by them.
 

Xelor

    • Prevents the Devotion spell from being used.

Characteristics Threshold Balancing


Since this change provides a minimal bonus compared to the other classes affected, Rogues' attack spells have not been changed.
 

Dopple Summons' Spells

 
  • Osamodas Dopple: Dopple spells have been updated in line with the new Osamodas spells.
  • Feca Dopple: The Bubble spell has been replaced by Cloudy Attack.
  • Sacrier Dopple: The Sacrier's Foot spell has been replaced by Assault.
 

Ancillary Changes

 
  • The maximum number of Summons can no longer exceed 6. Summons in their present state presented several problems within the game. Summoned in great numbers, they considerably slowed down the how long rounds lasts and very often behaved erratically. Moreover, they played only a minor role in PvM because of how fragile they were, especially at a high level. By providing them with more health points and greater durability, as well as allowing Osamodas to control them a minimum amount, we have given them enough impact in the game to make unreasonable numbers of them unnecessary in combat. → This change will not be available right away on the beta.
  • The impact of the Power characteristic has been reduced: 1 Power no longer equals 1 characteristic point but 0.8. This way, we want to give greater importance to the primary characteristics and reduce the need for the Power characteristic in multi-elemental game-mode equipment. It was too easy to achieve equivalent damage values using Power with or without too few concessions, thus making much equipment obsolete. In return, spells that procure Power will be slightly increased. Here is the list of spells concerned: Powerful Shooting, Wheel of Fortune, Mot Olov, Greed, Fortune, Power, Zatoishwan’s Wrath, Last Breath, Evolution, Capering, Ardour, and Psychopath Mask. → This change will not be available right away on the beta.
  • When the Chaferfu common spell is cast with a critical hit, the Summons no longer attacks its allies.
  • The spells of certain temple Dopples have been changed or replaced.
 

Changes to Certain Equipment

 

Healing weapons can now only be used in a line:

 

During balancing, we're seeking to strengthen the specificities and role of each class, and in particular, to diversify the classes that can play the healing/support role. Healing weapons were too powerful as they were and, in too many situations, they made it possible for a support class to be ignored without any real constraints. This change makes it more difficult to use them by sometimes encouraging more risk-taking in positioning without reducing their healing effect.

In turn, the range of the Boogey Wand and Archetypal Bow has been changed.

FAQ

 

What will happen to characters' characteristics whose thresholds are being changed?


A restat will be offered to the classes affected by these changes.
 

What will happen to the points of the spells that are being changed?


The spells being drastically changed will be reset to zero and you'll recover the points. Regarding the Osamodas class and on the understanding that this is a revamp, all spell points will be returned.
 

Why is the Sacrier class the only one that hasn't yet been tweaked since balancing started?


The Sacrier requires more substantial work in order to balance the class correctly while offering more-attractive gameplay. With all the other changes presented in this changelog, this work is unfeasible for now.
