Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Best Builds for Beginners
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.
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.
