PVS Wakfu: Lumberjack Guide

Preface: This was written a few months ago, but I seemed to have forgotten to finish & publish it.. Apologies for not having images, hope it still finds a use somehow.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Lumberjacking. Don’t worry, it’ll be Okay. As far as any of the gathering professions in Wakfu go, it’s safe to say that being a Lumberjack is one of the easier ones.

As a lumberjack you’ll do a few key things:

  • Gather cuttings from trees.
  • Plant trees using the cuttings.
  • Cut down trees for wood.
  • Turn wood into planks

That’s it.

First off, to learn the profession of Lumberjack you’ll need to talk to either Master Hoot (Bonta HQ, Bonta), Jonk Andee (Amakna Village, Amakna), Gnaled Barklee (Gnarled Barklee’s Forest, Bonta), Kokoogro (Jumpin’ Jungle. Sufokia) or Jaffacrack (Mourning Wood, Brakmar). Once there you get a book. Read it over then talk to the Clan Member again to do the test. Once you get them right, you’ve become a Lumberjack!

Now as I said, being a Lumberjack isn’t hard, but it is time consuming. There are a few key factors to remember:

  • Trees can only be planted in certain places. These are often cells that are a little darker than the rest of the grass, or simply ‘stand out’ from the environment.
  • Each full grown tree can be pruned twice to get cuttings, except for rares. Once you prune it, then it will shrink to the smaller size. Wood can only come from full grown trees.
  • You gain Wakfu when you plant a tree. You gain Stasis when you cut down a tree or trample a tree. Pruning for cuttings does not affect Wakfu or Stasis.

Weather

In order for your trees to grow, you’re best to plant them in the weather and temperature they grow best in. There are three types of weather: Sunny (Wakfu Sunny Weather), Cloudy (Wakfu Cloudy Weather), and Rainy (Wakfu Rainy Weather). Trees will also only grow within certain temperatures. If it’s way too cold or way too hot, they won’t grow at all. If it’s too hot or too cold, they may grow but very slowly. You want to find a place where the temperature is optimal for the free you’re working with. Temperatures vary by Island (Amakna, Bonta, Sufokia, Brakmar, Monk, Forfut, Sadida Kingdom), not by zone. We’ve gone ahead and listed all of the trees below and their too hot, too cold, and optimal temperatures. Anything outside those temperatures they won’t grow at all. You can also view this in-game by pressing the X key, however only trees you are able to cut will be displayed.

Leveling

When you start out, the lower level trees shouldn’t be too hard to find. Mourning Wood (Brakmar) and Terrana Dune (Sufokia) are usually good places at low levels. At higher levels, you’re going to want to be planting your butt in Yurbut (Bonta) most of the time, as it’s often the best place to plant and has the most space. At higher levels, you may find that there are no high level trees around. You can purchase the clippings from coin machines at the trool fair for level 70+ trees. In reality though, it’s going to be more efficient to ask around for some to start off.

The quickest way (I’ve found) to level at lower levels is by working with the highest level tree to can cut. By Planting the tree (100 xp), then cutting it down when it grows (200 xp) you’ll get a lot of experience and keep your Wakfu/Stasis balanced. Planting lower level seeds has a high success rate, and this method works well.
However at higher levels with the chance of the seed planting is 50%, you could be slowed down much more by fails. Alternatively, you can Plant (100 xp), then prune twice (100 xp x 2). This way takes a little longer, but I find the tree grows back quicker than a new plant.

Once you have a ton of wood, you can turn it into planks using a Sawmill. Planks are most often used by Handymen for their crafts. However, have a look at what the type of wood you’re using is for before turning it into a plank. Many handyman recopies use just the wood, not the plank; A lot of higher level planks are useless. As the saying goes ‘Look twice, cut once’. Leveling handyman along side Lumberjack can be a good idea.
