Another important aspect of the game. Life skills not only bring you wealth by selling produced items or providing certain services, your character can also gain various bonuses by leveling your literature skills.

You need Energy (体力) in order to perform most life skills. You will only get a fixed amount of energy per day, so if you finished your energy for the day, you will need to wait another day for your energy to regenerate.

Your energy regenerates every 5 minutes, amount regenerated is based on your hunger. Note that if your hunger is at 0, you will start losing HP, but you will still regenerate a small amount of energy. You will not die of hunger, but theoretically you will only have 3/4 of your maximum HP left.

Your maximum energy is determined by your highest level life skill, VIP and guild territory level.

You earn Life Skill Experience (心得) by performing life skill, and your life skill will level eventually, unlocking new recipes in the process. However, you can only accumulate fixed amount of experience per day. You don't need to force yourself to reach the capped experience for the day daily as the limit will get carried over to the next day as long as you have been online for at least 1 minute.

Lastly, life skills were divided into 4 categories:


Harvest / Collect
Before you start crafting, you will need different types of raw materials which can be found by performing these life skills.

You can learn ALL skills listed in this category.

Farmer (农夫) / Silk Farming (养蚕)
* Grow and harvest all sorts of vegetation for cooking, clothes making etc
* Cultivate silk worms to produce various types of silks, mainly for clothes making.
* Post-process harvested product into intermediate material for cooking, such as turning bean into tofu.



Hunter (猎户)
* Extract skin, fur, meat and other animal products from hunted beast/animals.
* These animals products can be used for cooking or crafting medicine, poison, clothes , weapon.

    Apothecary is quite easy to level up, and the pots made are quite good. However, zither is the hard part, yet is quite fun. Leveling zither still need a lot of time, since each round of performing only give very little amount of experience, and it is time consuming (as shown in above video @.@'''). Hope I can get more type of music in obt.

      can you explain how to enhance armor with the tailor profession? i can't figure out how to do this.

      Jun 2, 2012 12:00 am
      Forgot to take screenshot for how to enhance weapon / armor.

      Basically that item must have 'hidden potential', then you need to have certain materials from life skills + 10 silver. You may need different life skills to enhance your item to its limit.

      Crafted gear has hidden potential, which can be activated (开光) by certain professions.

      I will take Pants for example:

      For a generic 32 def Iron Grade Pants, once crafted, the items will hint you that you will need x amount of "Poison Stone"毒石 to activate the hidden potential. The "Activation" can only be done by Poison Master of a certain mastery level. (yes, it is poison master not taylor).

      Poison stones are obtained from combining "Pink Stalk" 红粉白株 (which can only be gathered by Poison Master)  and "Fine Bead "精珠 (which can be obtained from dismantling Wood Grade accessories, which is normally crafted by Goldsmith).

      The first option for pants adds additional physical defence to the gear.

      After the 1st activation, there is a chance that you will get another option, for the second activation. Notice that i said "there is a chance" since it's not 100% that you will get the 2nd options.

      If you are lucky enough to get the 2nd option, then you will need x amount of "Snow Silk" 雪蕴绸 and this time, it must be performed by Taylor of a certain mastery level.

      Snow silk can be obtained by combining "Wool thread" 棉线  (which can be obtained by dismantling Iron Grade armor) and "Linen thread" 麻线 (which can be obtained by dismantling Wood Grade armor).

      After the 2nd activation, you will get a option that says "Gain x stats if you activate y type of neigong"

      Erm, by now, you will probably realize that the crafting system of AoW is extremely complicated, but at the same time, very interesting since it involves many profession to get a powerful piece of gear.

      The trading,buying and selling of materials are very active in the market. You can setup stall to automatically buy certain materials from other players too. Most importantly. you can also set stall and offer your service of crafting or activating gear to other players and charge them a fee for it ^_^

          Among items which are sold in Cash Shop:

          1) fashion , without additional stats. and only last for 30 days.

          2) horse, which moves faster than the horses sold by NPC in game, last for 30 days too.

          3) life skill books, which double harvested/collected materials (also last for a certain duration only), for certain professions.

          So far, no game breaking items which will ruin the game balance are sold by cash shop.

          ii hope they keep it that way....
