WO Long: Fallen Dynasty will really put your patience to the test, and for a new gamer, the first few hours of the game can be too much to handle. Thankfully, there are lots of little things you pick up along the way that help to ease the process.
The subtle details that add up to making combat simpler or harder are simple to miss if Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is your first experience with a soul like. Particularly if your first supervisor is very terrifying.
Fear not, though, we have fought through it and created our WO Long: Fallen Dynasty beginner’s guide, which is full of tips to make your experience smoother.
Observe the Training Grounds
The world map can be accessed by selecting the ‘Travel’ option as soon as you start the story and discover your first Battle Flag. The ‘Training Grounds’ section on this map is marked as such.
You can get a quick but helpful overview of how battles in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty operate by going to this area. The tutorials get you ready for the rest of the game by teaching you how to use your Divine Beast, conjure Wizard Spells, and important blocking tactics.
Collecting Genuine Qi
This should be your first priority as soon as you enter the main story of the game to collect Genuine Qi. The best use of your time is to increase your character’s strength, during the first quest. You will have to overcome adversaries, but overcoming them will reward you with Qi.
Qi can be obtained by destroying foes. We need to discover a useful strategy for this, we farmed the Qi whenever we came across a location with a Battle Flag and simple foes. Go between the flags, taking out attackers as you go. Go rest at the flag to let the enemy respawn after each piece of Qi you’ve collected there, then start over.
Morale is one of those things you might overlook if you fast-forward through the game. Less damage from foes will be taken to you and more battle components will be at your disposal as your morale rises. Your Morale can rise to a maximum level of 25, which is more than enough to enable you to combat anyone who tries to stand in your way.
When you approach an enemy, peek over their heads to monitor their Morale. One of three things will be indicated by the colours:
- Red- They have much higher morale than you have.
- Yellow- They have marginally higher morale than yours.
- Green- Your morale is higher or equal to theirs.
Counter, Dodge and Deflect
You will ultimately be killed if you enter any combat with your weapon drawn and start swinging around randomly. It is essential to avoid opposing strikes and successfully block them if you want to prevail in combat. You can also block attacks.
The majority of opponent strikes may also be dodged, but doing so depletes your spirit level, so use it wisely. With smaller foes, deflecting one of their attacks should provide you with a brief window of opportunity to eliminate them before they become aware of you.
Observe your Spirit Level
Several things can kill your spirit. You will get exhausted and severely vulnerable for a short while if your spirit level drops too low. It is possible to die in these few places in large boss battles, therefore keeping an eye on your Spirit level is an essential thing to do in the game.
Check your level after completing each of the following acts as they each require a different amount of spirit:
- Wizardry Spells
- Deflecting after an action attack
- Spirit Attacks
- Fatal Strikes
- Martial Arts
Stealth Attacks Uses
Use stealth attacks whenever possible because they can often finish out a simple foe in a single strike. By doing this, you can avoid to being engaged in a fight that may damage your Morale level and it’s quick way of dispatch foes to farm Qi.
In order to see your goal, slowly make your way to the edge of the higher region. Jump and press the right control to execute a stealth takedown as long as they don’t see you. The following move is to sneak up behind an enemy without being seen. Once more, use the appropriate control to execute the takedown if you are not discovered.
Build and Employ Wizardry Spells
You may access your Wizardry Spells around halfway through the first region by resting at a Battle Flag, and you can also pick up new ones. They will cost you points, but you gain them as your character levels up.
Wizardry Spells certainly use spirit, but they also have a lot of great benefits and attacks. Some instances of benefits from these spells are as follows:
- Reduced spirit consumption
- A temporary increase in speed
- Fire attacks
- Attacks by poisons
- Atomic traps
- Extended the time of enhanced defence
There are many Wizardry Spells to acquire, and it may take some trial and error to discover your ideal combination.
Observe your Equipment and Weapon weight
You will find new equipment and weapons to gather as you move from area to area slicing down your foes. We recommend getting as much as you can at first since you can sell anything you don’t need later.
You can check the status of each item of gear to make ensure your character is being built to be strong in the areas you want them to be. Some items, also have a ‘Set-Bonus’ feature that, if you are wearing the entire set of that item, grants you an additional benefit.
Create a Divine Beast
Early in the game, you can unlock a strong move that will quickly alter the course of any battle once you reach a specific point. Don’t forget to use The Divine Beast-an it’s action that is well worth the wait.
It might be quite simple to overlook some of the tools at your disposal during frantic encounters where you’re battling to stay alive, restore your ally, and fend off several attacks. You can summon your Divine Beast once their marking is charged if you need some time to recover some health or if you just need to move away to a safe distance.
Pay Attention to your Allies
Friends that you make through the story and who fight alongside you occasionally have a lot to say, but it’s important to pay attention to them.
An ally will frequently provide you with advice or hints on how to overcome a particular challenge, even when it seems like they are just chatting about nothing. A short comment can be made by your ally to alert you if you approach an adversary or a location that you are unable to defeat.
