Character Personalization Those of you who have suffered through our eternal Facebook and forum teasers already suspect that we have been working on a new option for personalizing a character’s face and hairstyle. The news is out, and this devblog will fill in the missing details!




With update 2.9, players will have several new options of character personalization at their disposal. More faces for more personal expression and more originality!

To be very precise, we have 4 new faces per class and per gender, each with two versions (a “kind” one and a “badass” one). This brings the total number of different faces for DOFUS characters to 240 (compared to 30 today).

Although it’s not possible to modify the eyes, the mouth, the haircut or the size of the eyebrows independently (for inevitable technical reasons), Rumo, the artist behind all these new faces, made sure that each one of them was unique. He thoroughly bones up his hairdressing books, make-up guides, and peered into his colleagues’ looks to bring you a wide range of styles!

Without further delay, we present to you, some new DOFUS character faces:




WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM THIS? WHEN AND HOW?


These new faces will be available in the character creation interface as soon as the 2.9 version is implemented.

But now, you’re wondering… “But, are you kidding? You’ve totally left aside existing characters. We have to use the same old boring faces we’ve had for years and years?”

Well no, of course we didn’t forget you. How could we? A new Face Personalization Ogrine service is about to be released. For 700 Ogrines (same price as the color change service), you’ll have the possibility to change the face of your character whenever you want!

And this is when you argue… “I can’t believe it! Again you guys are making us drool over the coolest features, but we can’t use it without feeding Ankama’s enteral lust for money by buying Ogrines?!”

Well no, you won’t be forced to use your Ogrines to enjoy new faces. We’re going to trigger an automatic free face change for all DOFUS accounts and characters after the 2.9 update is released. The first time you connect a character after the update, you’ll be escorted to the new personalization interface and you’ll have the choice to either keep your current face or use one of the new ones.

After making this first free face choice however, all future modifications will have to be made using the Ogrine service, so choose your free style very carefully!





Will we be able to test this during the Beta ?


Yes, of course, you will be able to discover all this very, very, very soon on the test server. With access to the beta, in addition to the gallery that we have given you above, you will be able to test your new mug with your colors, and make sure you’re happy with it before making your final choice on the live server.

However, the Character Personalization feature will not be available during the first week of the Beta test, you will need to wait for a patch the following week. A few of the classes won’t be ready the day that the Beta server opens, and our art team friends want to refine this all the way!


Do you have something to add ?


Beyond the additional choices of customization of your character, this head’s overhaul paves the way for another revolution! For many moons now collector of all kinds of hats have noticed that there are some display problems with hats on certain characters. Sometimes you’ll see a fringe of hair poking out, or a there’s a hood that’s misaligned to the character’s face… In other word, graphic issue that destroy your dashing look!

The root of this issue was that we had to place those hats on a unique skeleton common to all classes, which meant that some hats were unable to be perfectly aligned to every character.

With this overhaul, we’ve spoiled ourselves by instituting a case-by-case system, with the possibly to shift the hat position on a specific class without any side effects for the others. We can thus be rightfully joyful at the idea of every classes being as dashing as their counterpart with any hats, be they old or new! As an aside, if you notice that a hat is misplaced on your character head after the update, do not hesitate to report it on the forum, after 2.9 is released, this can easily be corrected.

This sounds like a splendid improvement! I especially like the idea of being able to choose between a kind or an angry face. I have always found it very disturbing that most male characters look angry and most female characters look bimboesque. Personally, I don't like angry faces, but a female character that looks like a fierce warrior might be better than what we have now.

I can see the price of ogrines in kamas skyrocketing after this update

Too many good services are dependent on ogrines: How about changing this new character personalization (maybe even colour change) to be something that can be bought by something ingame like dopploons maybe or a fixed amount of kamas?

Anyways thanks Ankama for this great new feature and for the free face change for us old players

One more thing: Do you guys plan to increase the number of different faces for each class in the future updates? and if that happens will we get a free face change again?

Hmm.. I was just wondering, what will happen if we get a sex change on our characters, will we then be given the ability to choose a face as well? Before this announcement if a player was to go from male to female or visa versa one would have only one choice as to the look of the avatar, however now things are more interesting. Unlike character color change, which is more unique and has nothing to do with a sex change, this new feature of personalization adds a new aspect which correct me if I'm wrong anyone, was not addressed. Would a player thus be given the same variance of the sex they change to as the faces are ordered 1-8 or just given the old stock version and have to pay another 700 ogrines? Thanks anyone who answers.
