    Unlimited if you do the Russian open beta (copy the English text files into the directory and join an English guild)

     

    Does that mean playing on Russian servers? What is the lag like then?  Seems hard to believe it would run smooth being hosted in Russia.

    Strangely, I'm having far less lag and connection issues on the RU servers then the NA ones.

    Could you explain this please, i seem to have missed that part in my readings of this game.


     

    The game uses 2 currencies:

    1) Silver coins that come from drops and quest rewards.
    2) Silver that comes from Gold(bought with real money) conversion and very limited kidnapping. I do not think there is any other way Silver comes into economy.


    Thing is, in order to sell or buy something from other players, only Silver currency can be used. Silver coins have very limited use and can get you only very basic stuff, anything better you either need to craft it yourself, buy from other players or get a rare drop.

     You also make a significant amount of unbound silver while your character works in their offline job.

    If you are extremely lucky only and calling it "significant amount" is vastly exaggerated...

    The point is, offline jobs providing Silver are very rare, usual pay off is in Silver Coins.

    The hour per day won't be in after release. Or, alternatively, if you buy the deluxe edition it also removes it.

    My EXACT experience... Spent 3 hours doing Fedex quests and said this is for the birds and uninstalled. I may have put up with them if the combat wasn't so disconnected and delayed... And no, do not link that PvP YouTube video of the combat as it doesn't make the combat look any better...

    So you spent 3 hours running FedEx quests when you could have run the guide quests upto choosing a school and then doing spy jobs, kidnapping etc, or learnt gathering and crafting skills, Any game is rubbish if you just deliver stuff.

Not to mention everything seems to have a chinese name which can be tough to distinguish and or remember. Im still on the fence on this game. Maybe when the one hour play restriction is lifted I'll be less irritated with the game and give it more of an extended chance..

     

     Although the game has translation issues throughout it. So at times there will be questions asked. With the ability to properly read mission objectives and following the 5-10 minute guide in the beginning you should be able to grasp a basic understanding of  crafting, manfacturing, and combat skills.

     In addtion there are quite a few things that the game doesn't teach you. For instance Weiqi (GO Chess) will take some time for the player to pick up and learn properly. Things such as procing rare items through manufacturing aren't discussed but are mentioned through advanced processing of materials.

     All-in-All I believe that Age of Wushu gives the player ample info in the beginning to get them on their feet. It just requires that said player to actually read the tutorials instead of skipping them and getting into the world as fast as possible.

    Everyone gets an offline job if one is available, regardless of VIP status...

    But I'd just like to know if the game really have a lot of depth, since people keep asking how to do stuff, or if it's just that everything is a mess.

    I've been wondering the same thing. I tried to play late at night and thought "I'm just too tired to understand, so I'd better come back later when I'm fresh."

     

    And then, if this game is that complicated and deep, I don't think I have enough time to figure it all out and be good at the new style of pvp that will be involved. I realized that either way, I don't think I'm going to have time for this. 

     

    I am not hard core, regardless.

     

    But AoW is a beautiful game world, from what little I saw of it in the starter area.

    I love this game but I find myself hardly accomplishing much because im so confused on translations and lack of guides. But the community is super nice so far compared to other games and very helpful.  

     

    Prob best to keep this game confusing it keeps the kids and carebears out and keeps for nicer community

    You get a little unbound for kidnapping but mostly just a few wen, i never got unbound for offline jobs as non vip so i assume thats true.

    I get 14-20 L per kidnap, every time. You just need to know which type of player to focus on and where to do it so as to avoid any time-consuming hassle.

    If you keep grabbing high-level players in the middle of Chengdu, you're doing it wrong.

    I've been learning how to play this game a little bit more each time I log on.  It is definitely confusing and the game does not explain very much how to do certain things.  After playing for a several days, and I only get to play an hour a day...I have learned how to gather wood and farm things. I completed a couple spy missions which had good rewards.  I was confused how to spy at first but after asking in the chat channels I was able to figure it out.  I have become a chef and made some steamed bread...which was nice because I was getting very hungry and was not able to buy food from players because I don't have any unbound silver yet...I opened a stall and tried to sell some bread but I don't think I can have an offline store if I am not VIP...that kinda sucks.  There is still so much I don't know how to do, like escort missions, I don't understand how getting new teleport points works, I haven't done team practice, I have not PVP'd yet but I did get ganked once in my own school.  Not sure how to get my story line missions going...lots of stuff really.  But I am having fun and sure I'll figure it out as I play more and research offline.

    I heard if you sell your kidnapped victims to the same slave traders theyll like you more and in turn give you more money per slave.
