The Four Aces beta is now available in-game! After an impressive blast of spoilers and, more recently, a livestream dedicated entirely to this new update, it's time to experience it for yourself. See you soon in the game!

SPANISH

Welcome, adventurer of the World of Twelve!

If you're the Iop type, go ahead and play, you crazy kid… But if you're the type who wants to know what you're getting into before you break down the door to a dungeon teeming with bworks, then you'll definitely appreciate what follows! The Four Aces beta has loads of surprises in store, including:

  • Modified dungeons
  • Transition to a new maximum of 4 players
  • Monster attacks removed
  • Improvements to certain classes
  • Rebalancing of numerous sets
  • New challenges

…and lots of other cool stuff besides!

What is a beta?

The beta phase allows players to test updates before they're rolled out, so they can give us their views on in-game developments and help us identify any shortcomings.

This phase is a chance for us to fine-tune and improve how upcoming updates work by performing large-scale tests involving hundreds of players at once. These tests complement the ones we perform internally.
 

How the Beta Works

The beta allows you as DOFUS Touch players to test updates before they're rolled out so you can offer feedback and help us identify any shortcomings or irregularities.

To access the beta, you just need to go to the DOFUS Touch app and click the button that appears during the beta period (and only during this period). This will take you from the regular game to the beta.


As a reminder:

  • Characters are imported from the DOFUS Touch app at different times throughout the year. So don't be surprised if your character in the beta doesn't have their latest equipment, kamas, etc.!
  • Actions you take in the beta will have no impact on the regular app or servers.
  • Our team reserves the right to reset the server at any time.
 

How do I give feedback?

TESTING GUIDELINES

When the team doesn't provide any specific testing guidelines, we encourage players to test a beta version using one of two methods:

  • Read the changelog and test the listed changes.
  • Test the content and features that are not directly affected by the changes in the changelog, to confirm that the update hasn't caused any unexpected side effects.
 

To facilitate testing, an NPC is located at the Amakna Village Zaap at [-2,0]. Talk to this NPC to buy various items related to the update being tested.

COMMUNICATION WITH STAFF
Players can communicate with each other and with the DOFUS Touch team via two platforms:

 

The forum is preferable because it's easier to track discussions there over time.
 

Elite Bonus Pack

A new bonus pack is now available in the in-game shop! Only purchasable with real currency, it will give you the following perks for a whole month:

  • Unlimited resets for stat points (not including additional points and outside of fight preparation phase)
  • Unlimited resets for spell points (outside of fight preparation phase)
  • Access to a 4th daily mission every day
  • An extra daily mission reset every day, effective after login
  • Access to the house at [-21,-18] to unlock an incarnation of Manitou Zoth
  • All the bonuses in a standard bonus pack (+150% XP and drops, +50% profession XP)


Note for the beta: On the beta server, the Elite Bonus Pack will be active for all players by default.

Changes to Bonus Packs

  • It is no longer necessary to log out and then log back in to activate a bonus pack.
 

Transition to 4-Player Content

Battles in DOFUS Touch are now limited to 4v4, i.e. a maximum of four players versus a maximum of four monsters or other players.

This change required a number of tweaks to monsters, bosses, dungeons, quests, PvP, spiritual gems, tile rooms, and many other things.

For more detailed information, read the devblog.

NOTE: Contrary to what was announced in that article, and in response to your feedback, PvP challenges will remain open to 8v8!
 

Removal of Monster Aggression

As described in that same devblog, the aggression mechanic for monsters outside of combat has been removed from the game.
  

Removal of Merchant Mode

Merchant mode has been removed from the game. We decided to centralize buying and selling via the marketplace; after all, virtually every map in the game has one.

Aside from that, merchant mode was frequently used for malicious purposes (selling marketplace spots, scams, etc.).

The following categories have therefore been added to marketplaces: Tool, Dofus, Beer, Stuffed Toy, Drink, Wrapping Paper, Rabmajoke (each type), and Petsmount.

If a player is in merchant mode when the game updates or still has pending items in their "store", they'll get everything back in their inventory.
 

New Challenges

There are new random challenges during combat! We'll let you discover these in the game, but here they are in list form:

  • Quick and Furious
  • Unstable
  • Foresighted
  • No Rush
  • Static
  • Head-On
  • Evasive
  • Alter Ego
  • Archaeologist
  • Loyal Friend
  • Favourite
  • Protector
  • Thirsty
  • Horticulturist
  • Beaconing
  • Victoria Station
  • Gangster
  • Blur
  • Collateral Damage
  • Masked Ball
  • Strategist
 

Also, the initial bonuses granted by some existing challenges have been changed:

  • Two for the Price of One: +35% instead of 25% / Ascension Island: +35 points instead of 25
  • Unpredictable: +45% instead of 25% / Ascension Island: no change
  • Exuberant: +20% instead of 10% / Ascension Island: +20 points instead of 10
 

New Smithmagic Runes

To give crafters more options and have consistency with the effect lines of certain items added in recent years, we've introduced new smithmagic runes to the game:

  • Pa Re Air Rune
  • Pa Re Water Rune
  • Pa Re Fire Rune
  • Pa Re Neutral Rune
  • Pa Re Earth Rune
  • Pa Hea Rune
 

The following changes have also been made:

  • The weight of the Hea Rune has been reduced from 20 to 10.
  • The XP granted by the Hea Rune to shields has been reduced.
 

New Teleportation Runes

Profession runes (such as this one) have a new effect… and it's major! They are now consumables that let you teleport to the nearest workshop corresponding to the profession. For example, the Lumberjack Rune teleports you to the lumberjack workshop closest to your location (accounting for access permissions in certain zones).
There some restrictions on the use of these runes:

  • The character must know the rune profession;
  • The character must not be in Incarnam;
  • The character must not be in the Ascension island.
 

These runes can now be crafted with the Handyman profession, and the recipes have been modified accordingly.

The old profession rune feature, which allowed you to be listed in crafter books, is now accessible from the interface with all your professions via a simple button!

Professions

  • In various Alchemist recipes, the Water resource has been replaced by the Cherry resource.

  • The bamboo node at [21,-36] in Aerdala that could not be harvested has been moved to a different location on the map.
  • Fishing spots have been moved to Sufokia to make them more accessible.
 

Interfaces

  • A newly added button in the shortcut bar will show all monster groups currently on the map when held down. There is an option in the game settings to place this button in the first slot of your shortcut bar if you want to make it as accessible as possible.
  • You can now add zaaps and zaapis as favorites in the relevant interface.
  • The target's HP has been added to damage previews.
  • Various item effects have been added to the items' descriptions, including for shields (to describe how the passive works), Shigekax, and certain Dofus eggs.
  • Various item icons have been modified for clarity, including the ones for scrolls and dragoturkey certificates.
  • The destination for various teleportation consumables is now shown in their effects listed.

  • The account certification interface on Android has been optimized. The keyboard no longer hides the text field.
  • The ability to teleport to your in-game spouse via the group interface has been added.

  • Certain names and translations in the crafter book have been corrected.
  • The display of kama and goultine prices in the in-game shop has been optimized.
  • Links on scrolls (such as wanted notices) have been made more legible.
 

Combat

  • It is now possible to trade places with a non-player unit in the preparation phase (e.g. a perceptor).
  • Just one member of an alliance can now take part in defending guild perceptors.
  • The damage preview is now active by default (and can still be disabled in the game settings).
  • Running the game application in the background no longer causes lag for all players in a fight.
