Best Curved Sabre Build and Recommended Skills Guide for Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty

Build Overview

The Curved Sabre build for Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty puts emphasis on raising the Metal Virtue which curved sabre weapons scale the most with. Leveling up the Metal Virtue also lowers Spirit cost of Wizardry spells and gives you access to useful debuffs from the Metal Phase magic tree. This gives the Curved Sabre build more flexibility compared to the Sword and Straight Sabre builds by giving a few ways to weaken foes in battle.

For secondary stats, it is recommended to invest Qi points into Water Virtue to have the option of switching to ranged armaments to compensate for the curved sabre’s limited reach. Raising Water also grants you better stealth for sneaking up on enemies and performing surprise Fatal Strikes.

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Best Builds for Beginners

Primary Weapon

Curved sabres are the primary weapon of this build. While enjoying fast swing speed similar to swords and straight sabres, curved sabres also suffer from the short reach shared by its peers. This weapons class, however, is characterized by its focus on horizontal strikes which gives it slightly better range than other standard blades and has decent performance against groups of enemies.

Secondary Weapon

Ranged weapons such as bows and crossbows work well as backup to curved sabres, giving you viable means to damage enemies from a safe distance. Putting Qi points into Water also opens up dual swords which scale off the element as an alternative, though you are better off relying on your primary armament for close range engagements.

Stats to Prioritize

Prioritize Metal Virtue.

Give the most priority to raising your Metal Virtue to get as much damage boost from using curved sabres. Doing so also gives you access to various poison and debuff spells under Metal Phase Wizardries which become useful during various situations in battle.

Raise Water and Wood Virtues.

As you level up Metal, try to also put points into Water and Wood Virtues. The former will allow you to use bows and crossbows as backup weapons will be useful for picking off enemies from afar or drawing their attention to isolate them from the group. Leveling up Water also opens up options to dabble in Water Phase Wizardries while also improving your stealth.

Raising Wood, meanwhile, grants you increased survivability by giving you significant boosts to max HP. You can also try getting a few of the more useful Wood Phase Wizardries, particularly Absorb Vitality, to help you during boss battles and other tough encounters.

Since this build focus on raising the Metal Virtue stat, it is recommended to unlock various Wizardries that apply poison on enemies. Poison Bubbles is your basic damage-over-time spell that requires no Morale, making it a good choice during the early game stages. You should also get Toxin Weapon to build up poison on enemies which works well with the curved sword’s fast attack speed.

For debuffs, try to get Calamity Bolts and Life Wither as these give you the advantage in terms of damage output against enemies. Thorny Shot is also a good spell to have for slowing fast enemies, especially bosses, without needing high Morale.

For Water Phase magic, Unseeable Form is among the most useful ones to get as it helps you perform Fatal Strikes on enemies with little to no cover when approaching them.

Finally, be sure to unlock the Absorb Vitality spell from Wood Phase Wizardries as it is arguably one of the best magic to have for survivability. If you can level up your Wood Virtue high enough, you can also get Perfect Restoral to gain a handy mulligan (ignore damage from an incoming attack once) that can save you in various situations.
