Getting started

Finding your way into the Jianghu has never been easier! Just follow the simple instructions below and before you know it, you’ll be immersing yourself in Wuxia!

Step 1: Sign up
In order to play Age of Wulin, you will need to have a Webzen account. To create an account with us, simply click the  button at the top of the page, and enter your information in the box that follows (see image below). You can even sign up with your Facebook or Google account!


Step 2: Download the client
To download the Age of Wulin client, simply click on the big download button below (or click here!), and you will be prompted to download the game. If you have any problems with our default download, you can also check our Download Page for more options!

Step 3: Installing the client
Installing Age of Wulin is a piece of cake! Simply unzip the client and run data1_AgeofWulin_Setup.exe, then the client installer will load. Follow the steps as the installer instructs and you’ll be that much closer to life in the Jianghu! If your installer gives you an error at any point, please check our list of common errors and their solutions here. It is also recommended to not attempt to install in any non-default directory, as that can provide errors.

Step 4: Launching the game
If your installation went as planned, you should now have an Age of Wulin icon on your desktop. Double-click that icon to execute the launcher. You will be greeted by our opening message to the players of Age of Wulin! Click “Confirm” to move to the next step, which will bring up the launcher itself. Now you need only wait for your game to update, then click the big “Play” button and the game will launch!


Character creation

Step 1: Choosing your story
There are four personal storylines in Age of Wulin, each provide unique starting situations and each have you begin your adventure in a different town. While the story itself does not directly influence your mid-late game gameplay, your starting location might. Below you can see a reference table, showing each storyline and which starting town they pertain to. This is important, as it provides you with your first Foothold.

Step 2: Customising your character and choosing your name

Age of Wulin supports detailed character customisation with a variety of pre-set faces per gender. On the Character Creation screen, you will be able to customise your character’s face, hairstyle, portrait and default clothes to a staggering level of detail. You can even save your facial shape to be used again later!

Once your character look is satisfactory, hit the “Enter Name” button at the bottom of your screen. You will then be prompted to enter your character’s name, note that naming rules apply, as specified on-screen. Once you’re satisfied with your name, hit “Confirm” and you’re ready to go! Finally, hit “Enter the Game” and you will enter the world of Wulin!
