OP  4/21/13 8:32:15 PM#1

I have been reading over the school and trying to decide which one I should play first.  I am still waiting for the download, and may not be able to play until after work tomorrow.

I have read the little descriptions of them.  Can any one put some infor up about the schools and give me an idea what I might want to play.

Thanks in advnace.

I haven't really played the game long enough to break down each school but i would offer these 2 suggestions when choosing. 

 

1. What kind of Player do you want to be ? Do you want to be a murderer / outlaw type or do you want to play the hero and take down the evil doers. I Know some schools look down on murdering & evil deeds an you aquire some sort of negative points rating thingy which could prevent you from advancing your skills in your school, I think.... lol There so much learn in this game so I'm not 100% sure on this. Personally i went with the Tangmen as it is my understaning they are somewhat of a nuetral school which allows you to play a little of this & a little of that.

 

2. Pick the school which you think has "cool" weapons or a weapon set you woul enjoy playing, Again I like Tangmen for their Daggers & darts.

A  coachman npc will give you all the needed information about each school when you're ready. By that time you choose between good, neutral, or evil schools.  I like scholars though cause they have a unique kicking style called "Leisure Kick".

OP  4/21/13 9:42:57 PM#4

Is there an "I win" school?

I am not going to play an evil school.  I will play either of the other ones.  Right now I am thinking about a school that can heal.  I ussually play healers.

This is SO easy!

 

Shaolin = dudes

Emei = chickies

Wudang = tree huggers

Beggar's Sect = surfers and skaters

Tangmen = batman

Scholars = nerds

Wanderer's Valley = sith

Royal Guards = jackie chan

 

Have Fun!

thunder's point is well made as schools are also your faction. Picking a school consistent with your playstyle is inportant. Tang seem mean in pvp with the dart/kiting thing. I play scholar, because I also love me some leisure kick. In Leisure Kick, your primary dmg type is softness, hahaha.

Tangmen or Scholar. The former is 1v1, range and ridiculous damage, the latter is ridiculous AOE and equally imbalanced 1v1 performance.

Overall game balance sucks...


There isn't much healing in AoW and what is, is mostly provided by life professions.

Either is pretty easily wrecked depending on builds.

Extremely good dueling with high skill and good connection is Shaolin.  Neither Tangman or Scholar can stand against a top tier Shaolin (almost no one can, consistently).  With 3rd inner buffs, they are just off the hook.

That said, anyone can beat just about anything with enough skills.

Yeah, tell that to people who play on new US servers where they do not even get 2nd inner...

Spot on. Can we call this a guide and sticky it?

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

But Jackie chan is THE drunken master! I went Wudang because I'm almost always evil in mmorpg's I've played, so I wanted to be the good guys for once. Also, taoism is no joke.

Well.. you can find indepth info on the skills, and there's even ingame NPCs as part of the newbie questline that explain each school & show you their skills. For a basic rundown, though: (this is mostly PvP oriented, as all schools do fine in PvE, but the game has open world, FFA pvp)

Shaolin: (palm,kicks,staff) AoE support & control - One of the weaker schools in the game atm

Wudang: (sword,sword, dual-sword) Kind of a hybrid between long range magic attacks (chi) and defense. One of the tankier classes in the game. They have some pretty strong skills, but somewhat limited AoE. They eventually can proc chi shields that absorb dmg and have limited internal damage (mostly direct damage attacks). - A fairly strong / balanced class, though atm they have a rough start as they are easily kiteable by other schools (specifically tang, & royal guards). One of the most popular schools atm.

Emei: (daggers, palm) AoE support & internal dmg - One of the weaker schools in the game atm

Beggar's Sect: (stick,palm,stick) AoE direct damage - One of the weaker schools in the game atm

Tangmen: (dagger, darts) Very strong long-range damage. Specializes in ranged assassinations, both internal & external damage. (direct and damage over time). One of the strongest PvP classes atm, fairly popular.

Scholar's: (sword, kick, dual-sword) Very strong AoE direct damage. One of the hardest hitting external attack schools in the game currently. Limited internal damage and almost entirely close-range. Fairly popular.

Wanderer's Valley: (dual-sword, fist / kicks) This is one of the more unique schools. Highly offense oriented, specializes in internal injuries and debuffs. Has lots of attacks that poison yourself to deal damage to your enemies & life leech. Tricky school to master, but extremely deadly when played well. One of the least played schools in the game, and has the highest skill-cap out of all the schools (imho). Focuses on ganking & unloading as much damage on your opponent before running out of energy (and then hopefully running away).

Royal Guard's: (sword, claws, chains) This is THE MOST overpowered class in the game. It's also the most popular alongside Wudang & Scholar schools. Focuses on heavy melee damage, with ranged attacks (claws / chains) that can also pull your opponent to you. The pulls also do pretty crazy amounts of damage if not blocked. Their only real downside is you can overwhelm them in melee if you are a scholar or high-lvl Wudang.

- Hope that helps

Duel Oni and tell me what you think.

 

Way too much opinion in this post. There are only OP players and soft vounters.

Look, I don't mean to troll but nearly everything is wrong in this post.  Yes, classes fluctuate based on inner levels but overall you can rely on the following:

Shaolin - Beautiful dueling, enormous combos, fantastic lockdown - easily a consistent top tier dueling school at all levels.  Also has top tier AoE abilities for mass PvP.  One of the top PvP'ers on the most mature NA server is a Shaolin.

Wudang - More or less correct, the tanky aspect isn't really true since everyone can get Flying Horse / Circle Moon 4.

Emei - Extremely high damage if you allow them to stack.  Good CC, excellent support, and strong rages.  It's not as "in your face" as Shaolin, but it's one of the best schools.  It will tip more towards support at higher levels.

Tangman - First inner strong ranged, second inner strong melee, third inner strong range (but most will switch to 2nd inner for the melee rage).  Darts ARE NOT a longterm solution.  They are among the weaker PvP classes due to the single target nature.  Dueling is extremely skill based - on both sides.

Beggars - Depends.  Lotus Palm is good in more of a mass PvP setting.  Crying Stick is a better dueling set.  Both have high damage (lotus spike, crying DPS).  Spirit Snake is a little in between - more AoE debuffs but primarily single target.  First inner Lotus Palm is godly, 2nd inner Crying Stick picks up a lot, beggar meridian combo is required for proper use of the sets.

Scholar - Medium AoE, it's easily escaped.  Used primarily for mass PvP initiation and zoning.  Internal damage is actually the highest of any internal style due to Leisure Kicks rage.  External attacks are not the hardest hitting, not by far.  The class tilts towards offensive support in several scenarios.

WV - A gimmicky school, but good and fairly difficult to play competently.  Sets offer a wide variety of options.  Perish Blades will become one of the strongest hitting sets in the game with 3rd inner buffs.

Royal Guards - Actually one of the weakest schools in the game once you learn how to fight them.  Matchups do matter.  Slow hitting sets will have more problems than more charge oriented sets.  Don't let them kite you.

Is there an "I win" school?


 

Tangmen or Scholar. The former is 1v1, range and ridiculous damage, the latter is ridiculous AOE and equally imbalanced 1v1 performance.

Overall game balance sucks...

 


There isn't much healing in AoW and what is, is mostly provided by life professions.

 Actually i think it's quite the contrary, game is very well balanced.Most of the times, it's not 'what' i can't beat but rather 'who' i can't beat.

i.e.  It's not the class that'll make you win, it's how you play.

 

p.s. Rosy cloud + wudang heal is gay though lol.
