You wanted it? Well, here it is! The old version of DOFUS, the infamous Version 1.29, as specially requested by some of our more nostalgic players, is now available to all subscribers. As you may know, there are already two 1.29 servers, Eratz and Henual, that, until now, have been reserved for the Hispanic community. Historically, we kept them so we wouldn't be unfairly disadvantaging our Latin American players, whose computers may not necessarily have been able to keep up with the performances required to enjoy DOFUS 2.0 to the fullest. Now, we have decided to open these servers to all our communities, on one condition: you must be subscribed. But... why? The desperate pleas of our more nostalgic players got the better of us! If we were going to bring back Version 1.29, we decided we might as put it face to face with our new update, which represents one of the biggest changes in the game's interface and design to be seen in many years: Update 2.36! We hope this will show our most dedicated players that we have really, REALLY improved over the years. We understand this desire to return to a simpler time, to once again get caught up in this blast from the past... but you may be deeply disappointed to discover that you've been looking at the past through rose-tinted glasses. In fact, this release will prove definitively to anyone having doubts that it wasn't better before, but that... it was good at the time. This decision was also taken in the best interest of our communities, both in terms of equality and security. As some countries still need to access these servers, we've decided to offer the same opportunity to all our players, without them having to resort to using a VPN and, in doing so, risking the security of their account. A trip back in time... ... that has no future! In fact, this retro version of DOFUS is a bit like trying to revive a Pandawa the morning after Saint Potrick's, so don't expect too much! Since this version is frozen in time, there are certain services it doesn't offer: No support (except in very specific cases) No updates No services (like color changes, server transfers, etc) No recurring in-game events like Kwismas, Vulkania, and Al Howin (and therefore no special events either) Error messages and bugs that are still there and will stay there forever, perserved like a Moskito in amber. Subscription gifts cannot be sent to the 1.29 server (but they can still be sent to the current version of the game) To be brief, this internet re-release is simply a small token for our more nostalgic members who want to wander misty-eyed through the World of Twelve of their younger days. But that's it! So, if you want to have an enjoyable game experience on these servers, it's up to you to take care of them. How do you access them? You'll need to have a certified account (see Ankama's account certification procedure). Be subscribed Install the DOFUS 1.29 client ... that's all there is to it!
