Notes on Allies
On higher difficulties, Allies will receive the buffs to Enemies and Guests as Elite Characters, and Sect Leaders will receive buffs as Boss Characters
These characters will lose those extra stats and buffs when they join your party.

Allies also gain 1 Allocation Point every 5 Levels, and will automatically spend them when they are not in your party. Same with their Passive Tree Points

As a general rule, increase your allies Relations to 100 when possible.

Fate Moves: MC Spend 50 spirit to Assist; Then Character can use their Fate Move
The MC will gain status(+20% Damage Dealt; -20% Defense) in battle for every bonded party member that falls.
If the MC falls in battle, all Bonded party members will also receive a (+20% Damage Dealt; -20% Defense) status

When using the Benefit Equally Trait from the 15 Bonded characters Achievement, those stats will appear in the character screen while they are in your party. Those extra stats will not count towards meeting the stat requirements to gain the extra Traits from each stat

How to deal with a Sect that hates you.
This applies to Sects. This will not solve any Faction that hates you and will not work for the Southwest region
One simple trick to make a Sect hate you and still recruit your waifu in that sect.
Reset any Negative Relation with a Sect back down to 0.

  1. Find out about Linlang Temple in the Nameless Village area
    • Chat with Bao Dating until he tells you the location
    • Follow the Old Man Sect's story line until he takes you there
    • Join the Confucius Temple and befriend Can Qi. He will tell you the location
    • Obtain the Ox Ring and talk to the Village Elder. Get a Dragon Key elsewhere or raise the Village Elders Relation to 100, leave the village, and come back to the village to get the Save Xiao Bao quest. Complete that and he will give you one
  2. Go find or buy 5 Gold Bullion (15k Coins at pawnshops)
  3. Talk to Fu Yaozi, ask to meditate
  4. Click on the Gold Bullion icon on the sect you wish to reset. Cost varies on the negative Relation, maxing out at 5 Gold Bullion
  5. You are now back to 0 Relation with that sect/person
How to get married?
There are 2 ways to marry/bond with a character.
1. Through a quest
At the end of this character specific quest, you will automatically be bonded with that character. Some characters will not have their Fate Traits if done a certain way.
Characters that are bonded this way:
  • Fu Yaoqin
  • Yu Wei'er
  • Miao Caidie
  • Princess Fu Qing
  • Yi Zhihua
  • Han Hongyu
  • Wanyan Zhaoning
  • Tang Wan'er

2. Wedding Stone at the God of Marriage Shrine
Take your character (100 Relation needed) to the Temple in Chuxiang during the daytime with no other quests for that temple active (Like the Serious Taoist Quest). There you will get an event with an Old Couple who give you a free Wedding Stone and tell you the location of the God Of Marriage's Shrine.
To marry a girl through the Shrine, take her there (as the only member of your Party with 100 Relation) and a special (easy) battle. If you win you get Bonded. If you lose, you get a 2nd chance and can Spin the Marriage Slot Machine to marry.
Characters that are bonded this way:
  • Hua Siniang
  • Ye Yinping
  • Luo Qianxue
  • Hua Qingqing
  • Ling Mengdie
  • Ya Qin
  • Jiang Ziyan
  • Qu Wangyou
  • Gu Qingcheng
  • Yan Rurui
  • Man Toulou
Party Roles & Passive Tree
If you want to separate or build characters to fulfill specific roles, you will either need to recruit them soon enough so they do not spend their Passive Tree Points, or use their current Trees.
Update: You can now reset your Ally's Passive tree using the 7 Apertures Restoration Pill found in the Heaven Tower's point shop.
Now that you can change the Passive Trees, you can set up any party member for any role. Naturally traits will make some characters better at certain roles than others.

Passive Tree

Wind
  • General Role: Speed and Generalist
  • Important Nodes:
    • 1st Node - Head Start (+100 Action Points at start of battle)
    • 2nd Node - Quick Step (+1 Movement Range)
    • Final Node - Windwalker (After Attacking, you can move again but you cannot attack)
  • For a Generalist, you will want to take all the smaller Action Speed nodes.
  • Generalists should take no more than 22 points into Wind for all Action Speed nodes
  • Glass Cannon characters should take Windwalker to retreat to safety after attacking.
  • If you have enough AS (At least 100) you can skip these Nodes, but AS increases for Allies are rarer than ones for the MC.

Mountain
  • General Role: Tank and DR
    • 1st Node - Resilient (-1.5% Damage Taken per point of Con)
    • 3rd Node on Middle- Armor Build-up (-10% Damage Taken per hit taken in battle, Up to 50%)
  • A generally good tree to take. You almost always want to take the first node on anyone with decent Con

Fire
  • General Role: Damage and Splash
  • Important Nodes:
    • 1st Node - Strong Arm (+1.5% Damage Dealt per point of Str)
    • 2nd Node on Bottom - Collateral Damage (Enemies at the edge of an Attack's Range will receive 25% of the attack's damage)
  • This Tree should not be taken past the first Node (8 Points) unless fighting mobs and/or you are fighting an enemy with Reflect
  • Collateral Damage's Splash Damage will not be Reflected, so miss your attacks to hit them

Forest
  • General Role: Tank and Reflect
    • 3rd Node on Bottom Row- Damage Transfer (When adjacent to an Enemy, receive only 60% of the damage and share the remaining 40% to the adjacent enemies)
  • A solid if expensive DR option. The Damage Share effect works best if you take a decent amount of damage from attacks

Yin
  • General Role: Status Effects
    • 2nd Node Middle - Trained Body (The effects of the 6 Main Status Effects are reduced by 50%)
    • Final Node- Deadly Strike (Double amount of Status Effects inflicted by attacks and reduce enemies' Qi/Action Points by 150.
  • Mainly used for the double status effect from the Last Node. The Delay on it is very strong as well on fast characters
  • The 2nd Node is good for Tanks as well

Thunder
  • General Role: Damage and Critical
    • 2nd Node Middle Row - Marked Target (+5% Damage Dealt and +25 True Damage for every hit on a target. Up to +25% Damage Dealt and +125 True Damage)
    • 2nd Node Bottom Row - Mighty (+30% Critical Damage)
    • Final Node - Calculated Strike (Reduce enemy Evasion by 25% on Attack. For each Str > enemy Str: +8% Damage Dealt
  • This tree is a great source of damage.

These characters are accessible at the start of the game and are generally pretty weak

How to get 15-23 Wives - The Short Ver - Part 1
You only need 15 wives so the most likely candidates to skip are:
  • Hua Qingqing - Persuade 3, Steal 4, also need to pay 50k to leave the Swallows. -40 Benevolence and Propriety to join
  • Ling Mengdie - 5 Machinery or don't kill Tomb Raider (Complicated if never done before), or have a Level 4 Back Mountain in your Homestead
  • Miao Caidie - Minimum 4 Con, 4 Beast Taming, can lock yourself out of the Melody House Girls without using the Fight Trick

You want to do this after getting a decent amount of Achievements.
Preparations
  • Take any trait that gives +Gift Effect. Take traits that will make you stronger quickly, like Fake Newcomer, or quality of life things like, Son of Noble, or the Saint.
  • Have a Homestead with decent Manuals and/or Items.
  • Don't have any of that? Thats fine, this will take longer. You'll will need to the Taoist Sect and get everything you can there. The Ending Trait Magic Nature is very powerful and can carry you through the entire game.
  • Infinity Manual is similarly power but requires you to start with 1 Int to get. It also can carry you through the Entire game
  • You will need 4 Beast Taming, 5 Machinery, 4 Steal to recruit 3 of them. Be ready to grind this out if you want those girls.

Now the big question:
How do I marry this character?
1. Through an Event. This will be noted down.
Or
2. Take your character (100 Relation needed) to the Temple in Chuxiang. There you will get an event with an Old Couple who give you a free Wedding Stone and tell you the location of the God Of Marriage's Shrine.
To marry a girl through the Shrine, take her there (as the only member of your Party with 100 Relation) and a special (easy) battle. If you win you get Bonded. If you lose, you get a 2nd chance and can Spin the Marriage Slot Machine to marry

Now here are the steps to get all 19 Girls in the game
Steps
  • Goal: Build up power & Money
  • Unlock Homestead (4 Fame, for easy storage of wives and %HP buff)
  • Bond with the Wedding Stone girls right away for the Hot Springs buff
  • Make sure to ACCEPT Kang’s Hero Card at Fame 5
  • Start:
  • Nameless Village
  • Skip both girls at the start (you can help Hua Qingqing if you have decent power, reject her suggestion to take Luo Qianxue)
  • Reject the Old Man (Or join him and/or leave later. You will skip Hua Qingqing, Luo Qianxue, and Ya Qin, Ding Haitang. This will give you 18 other girls to work with)
  • Recruit Hua Siniang (1) - Support & Food, Don't finish her quest, You can marry/bond with her as soon as she joins you.
  • Recruit the Rooster in the Village, or learn Beast Taming from the Hunter and adopt the Red Boar in the forest

  • Join CIB, recruit Luo Qianxue, leave Sect whenever. Qingqing and Qianxue's personal quests are mutually exclusive. Qinqqing's version has a better trait for the MC, so you will want to do her version. If you bring both characters along to the cave, they will fight but they will not kill each other. The person you do not side with will leave your party. You will not be able to recruit Qianxue if she leaves while you are not part of the CIB.

The Fight Trick - To get both Miao Caidie and the 3 Melody House Girls
For this trick to work the Best, make sure you do not have anyone else in your party and put your pets in your homestead or have them STOP elsewhere like in Wuxian Mountain

Steps
Stop a few steps away from the Edge of the Gate Guards vision. Sneak to see this, leave sneak once in position. If you have more Movement Range, start further away.


Enter Manual Battle Mode using the Battle Button


If you are far enough way, you will enter battle mode and the enemy will not be aggroed.


High Movement Range:
You can walk behind the guard and retreat before ending your turn. This will let you past the Guards without making them attack you. The Retreat Button will be lit up and you can Retreat to end the battle where you are standing. If you are too close one of the Guards may get angry but will not do anything as long as they do not see you.


You are Free to walk around the Jiuli Tribe now. You will need to do this every time you enter or let the guards aggro onto you later when you raised the Relation of the Tribe. This works for every guard in the game.


Low Movement Range.

You will need to end your turn near the guard. Once you end your turn, he will aggro. You will need to move further into the Jiuli Tribe and find a place to retreat. Put your mouse on the Eye Icon on the upper Right to see the Battle Boundaries, You can Retreat once you leave that boundary.



You are now free to walk around the Jiuli Tribe as long as you don't go past entrance again

No it doesn't break the quest. If the Sea Jiang Gang are already dead by the time you arrive there's another servant of Sakura who will be there to help you out.
dq_177 Apr 30 @ 12:42am 
So if you wipe out the Sea Jiang Gang through talking to the Rich Merchant at the dock does that break Sakura's quest? Its a bit weird going through a playthrough without wiping them out since they 'escape' partway through and vanish from the game after proceeding it.
ZelRoFz Apr 17 @ 4:48am 
I can confirm the comment before me. If you bring baliff to arrest Shi Chen, you will be locked out from recruiting him even if you help him out from the jail afterward.
Maltose Apr 10 @ 3:34pm 
FYI, it looks like turning Shi Chen locked me out of recruiting him even after I broke him out of prison.

That would be the new Jiujiang Fortress quest added in the latest update. You can recruit either Ding Haitiang or Zhuge depending on which side you do. Ding if you recruit and marry if you save her, Zhuge if you don't and beat his Chess matches I think.

Also you can play chess with the fan guy at night, but I dont know what you get if you win, tried it 3 times on hard difficulity and it seems impossible.

Threre is still missing part about the waterfortress (Jiujiang) there is a small quest where you can choose between the fan guy in black and dagger girl in red, the route i took was doing one delivery two deliveries for the fan guy, you can report ob them to the red girl, i reported to her after the second delivery, she got poisoned i got blamed. This is a tricky part you need to raise the relationship with the leader or he wont believe you, just buy purple wine in the wine tower. Then you got 10 days to cure her, you need to have high medical i guess and find 3 purple herbs, its easy if you have maxed out your homestead. After you cure the red girl you can temprarily invite her to expose the fan guy, and he dies. I still havent finished the the main quest for the sect so I dont know if it has any impact.

PS: I had a bunch of Jiuli Tribe members waiting around the alter for whatever reason (might have been leftovers from doing the Yu Wei'er kidnapping quest from Melody House). If they're there, just stealth behind them, or beat them up (make sure Miao Caidie isn't in the party, preferably waiting at your homestead. She gets upset if you attack her people and damages her relation).
Once the bond scene is over, she leaves the tribe. Her brother should be dead one way or another, so that'll destroy the Jiuli tribe.

NOTE: Add her back to the party through the 'Edit' menu at the homestead if the Jiuli Tribe relations are 'Hate', as she will attack you outside the party on sight until you bond at the alter.

Note on Miao Caidie: Ran into a situation where doing the alter bonding scene in Jiuli Tribe would end with her going "Nevermind". Don't panic. I came to the conclusion that having Yan Gexing (Lewd Old Man, from the beginning of the game) in my party was the reason the bond wasn't happening (This very well could be the case having anyone else in the party besides Miao Caidie, but I didn't confirm). For those with Yan Gexing stuck in your party, simply reload your save before attempting the alter. and continue the Main Story Sect Quests until he can leave the party and goes back to Nameless Village. Try the alter again and it should proceed normally.
