Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty - Glaive Build

Build Overview

The Glaive build for Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty draws on high levels in Earth Virtue to maximize damage output using glaive class weapons. Focusing Qi points on Earth also raises your maximum equipment load, allowing you to equip a wide variety of armor. You also gain access to a variety of Earth Phase Wizardries for taking on groups of enemies when you level up the Earth Virtue.

For secondary stats, it is recommended to put points into Wood Virtue to increase maximum HP and gain access to Wood Phase Wizardries that increase your survivability. Afterwards, you can invest in Metal Virtue as well which glaives scale decently as well.

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Best Builds for Beginners

Primary Weapon

Glaives will be the primary weapon for this build which are characterized by far- and wide-swinging  horizontal attacks that are excellent for dealing with multiple targets. Glaives also boast incredible damage output and Spirit depletion rate, making it arguably the best armament among the polearms classes.

Secondary Weapon

To benefit from raising Wood Virtue, you can pick up straight sabres as a viable secondary weapon which have faster recovery than glaives. Straight sabres will also allow you to deflect incoming attacks more quickly owing strikes being less committal than with glaives.

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Best Weapons Tier List

Stats to Prioritize

Stat Priority
Earth Virtue ★★★★★
Details Increases damage output using glaives, increases maximum equipment weight, access to Earth Phase Wizardries
Wood Virtue ★★★★
Details Increases maximum HP (more so than any other stat), increases damage output using straight sabres, access to Wood Phase Wizardries
Metal Virtue ★★★
Details Increases damage output using glaives

Prioritize Earth Virtue.

Focus on leveling up Earth Virtue the most as glaive weapons scale the highest with this stat. Having high Earth also increases your maximum equipment load, giving you the option to wear heavy armor that boasts high defense. You will also be able to use powerful area-of-effect Earth Phase Wizardry spells by prioritizing Earth so you can take on multiple enemies better than other builds.

Raise Wood Virtue as your secondary stat.

Put points into the Wood Virtue to help you tank through enemy attacks better. You will also be able to use a few Wood Phase Wizardries that give you better survivability against foes that hit exceptionally harder than the rest throughout the game.

Allocate points to Metal Virtue.

Increasing your Metal Virtue boosts your damage with glaives a bit more as certain weapons in the category have decent to above-average scaling with the stat. You can also dabble in a few Metal Phase Wizardries if you want, though it is not necessary for this build.
