In the 19th year of the reign of the Northern Wei Dynasty, an Indian monk, Batuo, was greatly admired by Emperor Xiaowendi.
Whilst travelling, the monk came across a mountain range that looked like a lotus flower, where he wished to establish a monastery: the emperor granted his wish and had a temple built on Shaoshi Mountain, from where the sect derived its name – the Shaolin Temple.
Disciples of the Shaolin Sect focus on external skills, in which they are widely considered to be matchless.
Shaolin skills focus on close range attacks which inflict more damage and provide better defence. They have great survival capabilities that give them a chance to recover health during battle. Combining this with an ability to deal bonus damage to nearby targets on top of one's regular skills, makes them ideal tanks.
The principal weapon of choice is the staff, which is used in close combat, but can also reach further than a sword or sabre. The Shaolin are also competent at a very close range and can use their empty-hand skills to launch powerful attacks.
Shaolin have excellent area of effect skills, which makes them valuable in any groups or instances. You will be able to dish out damage equally to enemy mobs, while your teammates deliver the killing blows.
Shaolin Skill Sets
Shaolin are a Righteous sect. Only male characters can become Shaolin. Each sect has its own rules and regulations, which lead to “Rule Points”. Reaching a certain amount of points will incur sect penalties.
|Being dressed incorrectly||10 points|
|Drinking Wine||10 points|
|Killing Excessively (Evil point > 2000)||20 points|
|Committing Evil (Kidnap trading)||10 points|
|Committing Evil (Raiding Escort)||20 points|
|Committing Evil (Raiding Prison)||30 points|
|Killing the same sect||40 points|
When a player’s “Rule Points” exceed 100, and they enter a sect's scene, they will be teleported directly to the sect; an animated punishment will be broadcast, the player’s HP will be halved, and a strength weakening BUFF will be attached to them for a stipulated time period.
