Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty - Straight Sabre Build

Build Overview

In Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, the Straight Sabre build’s main stat to level up is the Wood Virtue which grants the best damage scaling for using straight sword weapons in the game. Investing in Wood also gives you the most incremental increases in maximum HP which greatly benefits this builds close-range approach to combat.

As a secondary stat, players can allocate Qi points into the Fire Virtue for using spears as a backup weapon while also speeding up Spirit gain. Alternatively, it is also possible to put points into Water Virtue to be able to use ranged armaments such as bows and crossbows. Stealth is also enhanced with higher Water Virtue which has its uses for performing Fatal Strikes.

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Best Builds for Beginners

Primary Weapon

This build focuses on optimizing damage using straight sabres which have fast swing speed. Compared to slower weapons that are more committal when attacking, straight sabres let you recover faster for when you need to deflect incoming strikes and are generally very easy to use. Because of the weapon’s short range, you may find yourself switching to a backup spear or bow often throughout the game.

Secondary Weapon

When putting Qi points to the Fire Virtue, it is recommended to use spears which have superior range and crowd control to straight sabres. Bows and crossbows also pair well with the straight sword if you choose to invest in Water Virtue instead.
