Choosing an Account Nickname

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.


 Please note: 

  • 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.
