Unique characters, turn-based combat, and a twisted sense of humor are certainly not the normal descriptions used when describing an MMOG, but DOFUS certainly deserves them. Now with the release of DOFUS 2.0, itÂs time to show the world why. This week, Ten Ton Hammer caught up with Cedric Gerard, AnkamaÂs International Marketing Manager, to see what makes the game stand out from the rest of the herd.
Ten Ton Hammer: What makes the classes and their combat abilities unique from what traditional MMO players might be used to?
Cedric: DOFUS is a bit different from what you would expect from a traditional heroic fantasy mmorpg. You will not find your usual orc fighter / human paladin / elven mage combination on the character creation screen. As I said, the fighting system is tactics and grid based, which makes it unique for a MMO. We have unique classes like the Ecaflip relying on gamble and luck, the Xelor, a time mage who is able to steal action points from its opponents, or the Pandawa, an explosive Martial arts expert, who had a bit too much coconut milk.
