Your account nickname can be seen by other players.
Starting from May 25, 2021, account nicknames will include a tag, and from June 1, 2021, it will no longer be unique. You'll be free to choose whichever one you like!
The tag is the number #XXXX after your nickname that you chose for your account.
- There are no tags between 0000 and 0999.
- Not unique does not mean without limits. A given nickname can have a tag between #1000 and #9999. Beyond that, the nickname will be unavailable.
- Archiving an account frees up a tag, just like when your change your nickname.
- If you change your nickname, you won't keep its tag. For example, if I am Naruto#1234 and I change my nickname to Pikachu, I won't keep my tag, 1234. A new tag is generated based on the availability of the new nickname, i.e., Pikachu.
- The tag is selected randomly from among those available. You will not be able to change it.
For your nickname to be accepted, it must meet the following criteria:
- The number of characters that can be used:
- DOFUS: 2-20
- WAKFU: 3-25
- In addition, it must not be "non-compliant". Nicknames identified as being "non-compliant" will be blocked.
Also, to avoid sanctions, the nickname must comply with the following rules:
- be pronounceable (for example, ssdfzxjf is unpronounceable);
- not refer to a political orientation, ethnic group, or community;
- not be vulgar or insulting;
- not contain either the user's first or last name;
- not imitate the names of major components of Ankama's creations (non-player characters, heroes of the story, iconic places, dungeon bosses, etc.); and
- not resemble or imitate the name of a moderator or an employee of the Ankama Ankama
So as to avoid any scams, the account nicknames of Ankama employees and moderators are always enclosed by square brackets, [ ].
How can you get a player's nickname tag in the DOFUS games (excluding Krosmaga)?
The /whois command makes the player's tag visible in the chat information window so you can identify them.
