Back to my wine making farmer.

It's funny how different the world is for my Tangmen killer, and my Begger, farmer, wine maker. I've made a very dangerous world for my Tangmen. She has more enemies than she knows off, and I'm always looking over my back, and often looking for a target. A fight is never far off.

 

On my wine maker Chengdu is a beautiful place. Farming out in remote locations, listening to the birds and the leaves.(the sound in this game deserves an award.) Making an ass of him, stumbling around drunk and begging. 

 

There are atleast 10 different begging skills, probably many more. Each skill offers the other person a sack in exchange for silver. Depending on the skill, your character will go though special emotes where they say things like "I was rich once, and now I fall to beg," or "I'm starving and I may fall dead at your feet... take this please," all sorts of stuff. 

 

The person being begged has the option of giving the silver for the bag, or refusing. When the person refuses the bag, they punch/kick/ foot sweep the beggger lol, and the begger falls. If they accept, the bagger falls to his/her knees and thanks the person. The person gets the bag. The bag may contain any number of items. Items ranging for hp pills to really nice stuff from what I've heard. 

 

I was just begging outside of the bank in Chengdu. Drinking wine, stubling around, and doing silly emotes. I must have been punched 4 times, and given silver once. That's when I begged this Royal Gaurd. 

 

I went though a series of skills. First asking for money for gambling, falling to my knees telling him how hungry I was. Then proclaiming how I used to live in the suburbs and how I was a rich man. The Royal Gaurd eventually kick me in the stomach and I fell. When I got back up I spit my wine out in his direction. 

 

I must of pissed him off, because he turned red and slashed me. He beat me unconscious then ran off! lmao.

Yeah, ping can be a real bugger. Try Leatrix Ping reduce .

 

My guild leader lives in London.  He hovers around 200+ with spikes a few times a day. Our guild has people from Austrial to Spain. I'm pretty sure every on uses leatrix. Idk how it does it, but it will cut your ping in half.

So how does this work?

 

Can I make my main character just a silly character with stuff like this and crafting skills if I want, and never fight?

 

I looked at the site and read some guides on the forums but I couldn't make sense of the information in the context of the game, having not played it yet.

Yep, Ive been playing for couple of weeks - NA CBT release, and have to say, Ive been waiting for a game like this for a long time. It has some issues, especially being from EU, I do not see THAT many english speaking folks around (and also occasionally some ping issues) but no game breakers so far.

Absolutely the best part is that you can do plenty of stuff without actually fighting.

Harvesting, crafting, playing minigames (for crafting xp) or...my latest favourite, just jumping on top of the large buildings in the cities and trying to go as high as possible lol. The graphics are beatiful and seeing your sword-equipped toon triple jumping in the air and reaching crazy altitudes to have amazing view is suprisingly satisfying. 

Usually i dont avoid combat, i just do not have time for it lol, since i wanna lvl up my herbalist/musician/beggar skills for the 2-3 hrs each day I have after coming from work.

Ive played all the latest big or small MMORPGs the last 2-3 years - Vanguard was my favourite because of crafting so far. After trying out Age of Wushu, it got me because of all these activities you can do and so far the ingame economy feels that you can just harvest materials, sell them at one of the big city markets and make money that way if you want, without raising your sword.

For those that are not satisfied with any of the games currently, and looking also for SOME sandbox features, this game should definitely be on the tryout list.

Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.

Hehe I love spitting wine at people just to see their reactions! For some reason, most people don't like it. Go figure...

AresPL, did you start a new character on the NA server? I rescued a low level offline character with your name the other day. Or did someone steal your name?

Been wondering the same thing, I've kidnapped a low level guy with that name at least 20 times, lol.
