You will notice I hardly talk about PVP as it is not my strong point. I play all school to
reasonable to understand them. PVP in this game is about reading the movement of your opponent, the skill they use, and how to counter them, can only gained through experience.

Bear in mind that there is no hard and fast rule who can tank bosses. If you acquired the HP/MP skill wudang has, you too can tank the boss after a pot or two. (Acquire other schools’ skills through the skill-book stealing event.)

Each school has 3 skills for you to learn simply follow the main quest line. Note that
you will not be able to learn the third skill before you reach 1L10 (inner skill level 10).
The main quest line continues when you return to your birth city. It takes you to your first instance and back to your school for second skill set.

Note here: you can solo this instance with the help of the NPC. See below;

1. Talk to NPC and he asks you to open the instance.
2. Talk to instance NPC to learn your first formation skill – Three Talents Array* (a must). Just self-make a party to complete the quest.
3. Once done with your formation skill, talk to NPC again to start random selection of
4. Head to the gate, your partner (NPC you talk to earlier will appear), you need to follow
him/her closely else the quest will fail. This NPC will do all the killing and you get the loot at the end. Loot includes some light-foot skill.

Follow the main quest line will take you back to school for quests and second skill set. If you reach inner skill L10, open the book icon at the bottom left of your radar and proceed to third teacher for last skill (Jianghu event–School exclusive skills)

Note: You get the learn crafting skill, marketing skill, life skill, and gathering skills
in the course of solving the main quest line. Be sure to look out for pop-up messages.

your vigor too.
3. The higher your skill the better stuff you can make (given you have the recipe)


Your first major instance when you reach 1L10 at Suzhao (Sunset Village) it has 4 mode:

1. Normal
2. Hard
3. Hell
4. Asuro

Each mode correspond to your inner skill level (press N in game to check if you can enter).

I will not touch on instance guide as this will spoil you. The fun of playing game is to
venture with your party and excel.


This refer to sect (I call them) that all over the map which you and your party can venture to get kung fu skill book that not available in school. These mini-instance required reputation (press C to check) to enter. You can gain reputation from quest and clear the major instance is the easier way.

Be warned, this is a PVP centric game you may get kill anywhere just so that your killer get reputation they need for title. I got kill many time when I was young and often look away. There is no point to get angry with these player as I have better thing to do.

Saw someone asking for combat basic and I think is a good information to provide. I will try to explain here. Hope is useful
