Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Best Builds for Beginners
Swords will be your main armament of choice for this build. This weapon class favors one-on-one engagements (dueling) as its limited horizontal range make it somewhat difficulty to use against groups of enemies. Because of this, it is recommended to switch out to your secondary weapons, use Martial Arts or Wizardry spells, or pick off enemies one by one by luring them away from their team.
Spears are a good backup weapon to have when maining swords to compensate for your primary armament’s limited range. Spear also scale well with the Fire Virtue and come with a variety of useful crowd control Martial Arts when taking on multiple opponents.

Prioritize Fire and Wood Virtues.
In general, you want to allocate most of your Qi points to the Fire and Wood Virtues with slightly more emphasis on the former. This ensures that you gain the best damage scaling from using swords (and spears). You will also build up and expend Spirit faster in battle, allowing you to perform Martial Arts or cast Wizardry spells more frequently.
Raise Earth Virtue as secondary stat.
You should also spend some of your Qi points on upgrading your Earth Virtue, mainly for the wider equipment options you will have to increase survivability. More stat points to Earth also gives you better Spirit gain when deflecting enemy attacks and is useful against bosses throughout the game.

The best skills for the sword build are mainly for increasing survivability and damage output, particularly those that require 0 Morale Rank to use. Absorb Vitality is a fantastic spell to have, especially during boss fights as it allows you to recover HP when attacking. Cleanse is useful for removing debuffs while also gaining improved resistance to them for a short duration. For surviving most enemy attacks, especially at low HP, Perfect Restoral is among the best Wizardries to get.
In terms of offensive magic, Fire Bolt is an easy-to-use Fire spell that costs very little Spirit to apply fire damage to enemies weak to it. You also want to get Flame Weapon to imbue your sword or spear with Fire to boost your damage output when taking on bosses susceptible to the element. You should also get the damage-boosting spells Amplify Damage and Overpower Burst, though the former also causes you to suffer more damage from enemy attacks (so use it sparingly).
