After the new patch (class balancing ) there have been many complaints in the forum regarding the VE (vital energy). I tested some of the complaints. For high level players the VE it is not a problem, but for low it is. In 9Dragons Awaken, Vital Energy is used for virtually everything a player does. Attacking a mob with an active skill, using the Lightfoot technique, using passive abilities (meditation and steps), using Chi Kung attacks, using heal skills, and using buffs all consume VE per use. When a player has no VE left, they are left at a severe disadvantage because they can no longer use any skills or abilities. There are currently four ways a player can regain VE : -By meditating. -By staying in Peace Mode. -Healer/ hybrid use the VE heal technique. -VE recovery item, such as an ethereal mushroom/ pills. At low level (1st role) the rate of consuming VE for skill training or grinding is very high due the fact you don't have proper items, clothes and so on. Don't panic with time and level you will get better. Hybrids and healer can use their own buffs to add VE, but even so, at low level, the rate of consuming VE to train skills is still high. At first role to help you grind you can use : - VE pills (dmg or heal 30 % ) / can be bought at auction house in Hefei or Tibet second village (with loyalty points, can also drop in coc boxes or from IM (RedFod Marketplace). If you have a friend in game or guild he may have them or get them for you, so ask him. When you level you can give them back or help another low level. - VE epithet ( like 15- 20 kk ). If you don't have money drop it or ask in guild. - Own buffs ( hybrid/healer). - Healer buffs & help from a healer. - You can get in game pills (+ attributes ) and elixirs to higher your VE. In worst case scenario you have to meditate. Epithet : Buff VE damage : VE pill : Healer in party buff : Hybrid Buffs (VE) : Healer buffs (VE) Videos : [Tested] 1st role Hybrid VE grinding : [Tested]1st role Hybrid grinding with healer help : [Tested]1st role Hybrid simulations VE epi, pill & healer One of the biggest VE consumer at low level is meditation skill. If you turn it on at low level,the VE will drop considerably. Second is the step. so when you grind avoid to be activated. Once you grow in level you can start make dungeouns and get VE leech clothes. At low level you can start with COF & VOH upgraded set, than at second role you will get a clan set and than the FC one and so on. In time you will get better. The players that don't have VE problems at low levels are using their main account relics, so with better relics & weapon at low level you will not have any problem with the VE, in fact you are a ' Super Newby'.
