We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Lightness Skills

From Age of Wulin Wiki
(Redirected from Lightness (Qinggong) Skills)
Jump to: navigation, search

Qinggong is a form of real Chinese martial arts. In Wuxia fiction, however, its use is highly exaggerated to the point that characters can circumvent gravity to fly, cover tremendous distances in a single stride, glide across surfaces of water, scale high walls and mount trees.

Lightness Skills are one of the key elements in Age of Wulin; players will find these skills to be one of the most important character upgrades they should be making in order to further develop it.

Learning them will open the limits of players'

  • movement style and
  • combat tactics

which will make them true masters of the Jianghu.

They are closely related to other aspects of the game, especially Internal (Neigong) Skills, their level being influenced to a large extent by the level of the latter.

Training these body techniques is essential for Wulins to freely wander through the Jianghu and face its many dangers as they can be used for defence, in attack or to protect others.

In other words, the Lightness Skills give players the ability to move freely across rooftops and surroundings and let them explore more of the landscapes or open random treasure boxes that would otherwise be unreachable.

Being intimately linked with fighting, they offer players a greater choice of tactics in the midst of combat, thus giving a much more realistic Wuxia experience; they allow fleeing from deadly enemies or pursuing potential victims and launch an attack.

As any other Skill types, players must learn them through unique skill books. Once learned, these skills usually do not require any form of cultivation; instead, players simply study the manual and get these excellent bonus abilities.

Lightness Skills Operation[edit | edit source]

Their operation - different from that of Combat moves - is actively done, using a combination of movement and other keys instead of being a simple one-key operation; the players are able to set up their own preferred keys.

This enables Combat moves and Lightness Skills to be synchronised and used much more effectively in battle.

Lightness Skill Points[edit | edit source]

Lightness Skills rely on players' Lightness skill attribute value. Having more of these points lets players run and fly longer. This value is adjusted and modified through various means: using Lightness Skills will decrease this attribute's value, but it will recover gradually.

When players use Lightness Skills, the blue bar that appears tells them how much of these points they have. This is important, for example, when using such a skill to fall from a higher ledge: players probably don’t want to lose Lightness Skill Points mid-fall and complete the rest of the decent falling to a 'thud'. Likewise, criminals don’t want to be running from Captors while wanted for murder and lose Lightness Skill Points trying to climb the side of a city wall.


There are three types of Lightness skills:
