    From what I read the bots are still active during the tael earning time, what really worries me is how are you supposed to make unbound taels now, when kidnapping was the main source.

    As well as cutting off other ways to earn taels excepting buying them right? Bots are ruining everything

    Yeah, I'm pretty disappointed at some of the changes :/ Seems the only way to make money now is to sell stuff, and that can be difficult if you don't invest a decent amount of time into it.

    You as a free player investing time but other players need to buy silver in order to drive the economy. Snail also has taxes on every sale (if i remember correctly) so the silver does not conserve in the market, it always diminishes. Of course there is a way to bypass this (make an alt for every profession, exchange between alts the items or trade with fellow clansmen) but i think you still need silver to make some high graded items (i think). Over all it's still a good game but too many alts killed the fun for me. Cheers

    Edit: Oh yeah and i was playing Age of Wulin which is very limited in content because it was not updated in ages (several updates behind the Wushu one)

    If it's one of the factions that requires expert of self, it wont be available until (at least) the second inner is released anyways. That wont happen until the server is at least a month old.

    Also, participate in script stealing and Twilight Village runs. Best two ways to make money if you don't want to get into crafting and stuff. Selling the books can net you a decent sum of money.

    The first few hours can be confusing, just try to get thru them and you'll begin to enjoy the game a lot. Joining a guild can help immensely (I suggest Light, as it's what I and Jermatoo are in). PM me in-game (Apoca is my in-game name) by clicking the blue chat bubble on teh right side of your screen and typing my name in the search option.

    I'm getting off for a few hours to play Argo Online, so I wont be online. If you need help, however, PM Nargato and tell him you're a friend of Apoca and he'll help you however he can.

    And after a certain level of your internal skill (I want to say 5, but it might be 10) you will be eligible to be PKd by anyone at any time. However, until you join a guild, this probably wont happen. Light, the guild I am in, is quite large and therefore has many enemies. On the flip side, Light is large and therefore has a lot of knowledgeable players who can help you out with questions you might have.

    Alright, @champ


    Anyways, I've been in the Golden Sect for a few days now and so far I've got to say I'm quite pleased. It took me a while to get used to the ranged style of fighting, as all my previous experience was using the hand and staff sets of Shaolin. There's also only 2 damage abilities in the Golden Needle set, but Life Chaser does a massive amount of damage. It can easily crit for 550-700 damage, and does a push-back affect when charged half way.

    I find that I'm quite good at healing and keeping people alive in instances, too. So that's fun.

    The daily and story quests are interesting, as well. Right now I'm on a part of the story where one of the more deviant NPCs of the faction has infected me with some sort of needle that slowly drains my energy and he's been using it to get me to do stuff for him.

    I've also started doing the Traveling doctor task, which has me traveling to various places and healing sick people by playing a few mini-games. It's fun, plus it raises my Medical value within the faction, which is supposed to increase the effectiveness of all my abilities.

    I have my old character, Shaolin on White Tiger. I also have my new character (which I play the most now) on Silver Viper that is Golden Needle sect. Don't have any other alts at the moment.

    I got the Tang inner today. Just need to work towards getting the other books so I can get it up to level 25 to unlock the meridians :P Kinda the downside of the vagrant-faction path... There's no meridian connected to your inner, so you have to work harder a bit harder to get access to one of the school inners. The tang meridian gives evasion/dex/etc.. which is helpful to ranged-based skill sets, such as the Shen.

    Also, I hit someone for 900 damage today during the dark trafficker event.

    There you have with folks, playing the game with just one character, relying on the market for the unbound silver (i think) is very doable!
    Cheers

    Yes, I got the money I have + the tang school inner by selling stuff I got from Twilight Village (Two gooses... very lucky of me) + some herbalist materials I've collected. I sold the two gooses to guild-mates, so I gave them a massive discount. I sold one for 90L + a vertigo dart basic 1 book, and I traded the other for the tang inner book. Right now I'm sitting at 170 Liang from just selling stuff that I got from normal means + three kidnaps I turned in during the dark trafficker event, which came to a total of 25L or so.

    So far, of all the Twilight Village runs I've done, I've gotten three Goose and two Step on High Ladder skill books. + all the recipes and array abilities. I'm honestly astonished at my luck, and I'm praying that the luck will keep up when I start running GCC towards the end of the week. I really want Walk on Water without having to buy it I'm also finding that I'm enjoying doing instances a thousand times more since I'm not the one organizing a 200+ person guild, trying to make sure we have primary, secondary, sub, etc... instance groups so everyone can get the crap they want. It's nice being able to focus on myself and just help a few people out here and there when I feel like it.

    It's not so easy to do what I've done as a new player, as you don't know a lot of the ins-and-outs of the game to accomplish stuff, and a lot of things seem far off and impossible when they're really not. I have a year plus of experience in the game to help me out. Getting a good guild can be a massive help. If you have any questions about the game, contact me (Apoca in-game) and I'll try to help you out.

    Alright, I'm now convinced that the people translating Age of wushu are just trolls



    For those that can't see it, the NPC is named "Qi Ti(Bathe cloud Chuang woman without pubic hair tower manager)" Pretty sure they're just running it thru google translate and are going with whatever comes up.

    Apoca I added you ingame but had to leave shortly after finishing the tutorial area. Do I keep Self Recollection/Internal Cultivation always on?

    Yes, you'll want to keep it on until you either A)join a faction or Max it or C)Get close to maxing it and decide to level up some abilities for more damage and whatnot.

    I love this game yet I hate it at the same time. The whole double currency system and endless vertical progression which is pretty much time based like Eve online (Daily cult cap) is a whole load of horse shit. Yet I really like the rest of the game and the updates are excellent.

    If I delete my character and start a new one will I get in the mail all my guardian pack things and starting items on the new character?

    From how I understand the Age of Wushu gift system... you apply the code and then get the items. You wont get the items on any other character, as it's specific to the server-character that you register it to when you put the key in. I would say this is decent evidence that you wont be able to get the rewards on another character.

    But, as I said and you said, most people haven't attempted it so don't know for sure. I would say the evidence is leaning pretty heavily towards it not working, and you wont get the items if you remake a character.

    It actually doesn't specify the character when you put in the code, just server.
