First Time Beating Up Monsters

In the Age of Wushu, you will frequently come across tasks that require beating up monsters. This might entail beating them up in order to collect Items.
Beating up Monsters usually requires finding them:

If it is required for a task, you can click on the Monster's name as shown in the Task Reminder and its position icon will appear on the map as a yellow, upside-down cone. Run to the cone and you can fight the Monster.

If the task involves requested materials or anything else, you can hit M to pull up the map and see the Force Tab. Below that is a space to enter in the Monster's name. Then click to search. If the map has the Monster you want to want, then in the area below you will see options in red characters. Run to the Monster's location to find its whereabouts.

Of course you are free to select your course of action, so if the Monsters nearest to you appear in need of a beating, you can deliver one as you see fit. Remember to check the monster's Capability and compare it with your own. After you pick a Monster, above its HP Bar and to the right of its name will be a small circle. Click on it and you can compare your own skills to its. There are five components to it, and each color represents a Monster's different potential levels of Power. Red means it is the baddest of the bad, orange is still superlatively mighty, yellow is a force to be reckoned with, green is about par with your own skills, and blue is a pushover. We recommend you select green or blue targets.

When you want to beat up a Monster, you can use the Tab key or the left mouse button to select one and home in on him. At this point you can clearly see the monster's red circle. As soon as you approach the Monster you can rain blows on him.

In addition, the game has many unlocked Movements, and as long as the Monster within striking range you can beat him up without having to home in on him by clicking or pressing Tab.

 

First Time Joining a School

In "Age of Wushu" there are 8 major Schools, including World-Famous righteous Schools like Shaolin and Wudang, neutral Schools like Scholars and evil Schools like Royal Guards.

Which School would you pick? No matter what, you need to find out how to join a School in "Age of Wushu".
There is one requirement for joining any Schools which is you have to reach 383 points in Jianghu Reputation. How do you get Jianghu Reputation Points? It is really simple: just finish some of the Guided Tasks.

When your Jianghu Reputation Points reaches 383, the Guided Task will remind you to join a School. Then you just need to find the nearby School Guide or Carter and talk with it to choose the School to join.
There are two special Schools in Jianghu that you should pay attention to the special rules if you want to join. The Scholars are filled with literary and educated people. The Beggars will not accept anyone who is not willing to suffer with them. So to join Scholars, you need to learn one of the cultural professions such as Calligrapher, Painter, Chess Player, or Musician. If you want to join Beggars, you must become a Beggar first.

There is great freedom in "Age of Wushu" so you can choose to not join any Schools. But when you do join a School you will learn 3 sets of external skills and one set of internal skills. So we recommend people to join if possible.
