If you want to take part in one of the most popular free to play MMORPGs of all time then you need to check out DOFUS. This is a fantasy MMORPG released in 2005 that is still going strong as one of the most popular F2P games of today. It was developed and published by a French company called Ankama Games and was originally fully free to play, it now has pay to play features. You will need a paid account to get the fully content that DOFUS has to offer.
However, once you try out the f2p version, you're going to see exactly why so many players find it worth it to upgrade to a paid account. The game is Flash-based and 2D with anime-like graphics that are friendly to the eyes and fun to play.
You will need to download the game to your computer and create an account to get started. Then you will create a character and find yourself in the world of Amakna (the company's name spelled backwards). There are twelve different DOFUS characters for you to choose from which means plenty of opportunity to experience the game in different ways.
Some of these classes are reserved for paid accounts only so F2P members will not see the option for all of them. The 12 classes are Ecaflip’s Coin, Sadida’s Boots, Eniripsa’s Hands, Osamodas’s Whip, Iop's Heart, Enutrof's Fingers, Cra's Range, Sram's Shadow, Feca’s Shield, Xelor's Sandglass, Sacrier's Blood, and Pandawa. Each class has its own unique abilities and features.
The variety of classes makes the game even more exciting and unique and gives you plenty to explore and do. The abilities of each class are based on their gods and there is also a lot of variety in the items and currency the game as to offer.
DOFUS currency is kamas and in true MMORPG fashion, you're going to need it to buy, sell, trade or otherwise advance in the game. One huge aspect to an MMO is learning the economy and how to play it to your advantage.
Another big bonus to DOFUS is the storyline. It has a strong, unique storyline that is consistent throughout the game and appealing to the RPGer in us all. The crafting system is also in keeping with this storyline and will keep you busy for hours on end if you choose.
Another fun aspect to DOFUS MMORPG is the pet system which is complex and unique in its own right. Some people play DOFUS for the sole purpose of collecting pets, making it similar to Pokemon. You can decide how you want to play the game and what you want to place your priorities in.
