Jiang hu is similar to the chi system but more complex. Instead of 4 stages with 4 skills(16) there is 81 smaller skills(stars). 9 stars in 9 stages. The goal is to decide what attribute you want for each of the 9 stages then fill those all 9 stars with the attribute points you want, the higher the quality and the more you have linked together the stronger jiang hu stats you will have.

To open one star you need cps, or 1 course + 1 study + 10 subclass study points. When you open a star you get a random chance of an ability and a quality. You can change that ability by studying that star again.


To open the next stage you do not need to open all 9 stars per stage. But, you do need a total amount of stage points to equal 1350. Similar to having to achieve 300 points to open the next chi. So you will have to re-study those Common and Sharp qualities to something higher if you've unlocked all 9 and the next stage hasn't opened.

When the next stage is open, repeat. I would recommend opening all 9 stages first, then go back an upgrade each star to any skill you would like. You CAN have all 9 stars have same same ability. ie: 9 Max-HP or 9 immunity.

When any two stars have the same abilility and are next to each other, you get a bonus. If you have 9 stars in one stage that are all the same ability then you get the highest bonus.

Number Of Aligned Stars in the stage Bonus Total In % Of Combined Stars

2 ----------------------------------------10%
3 ----------------------------------------13%
4 ----------------------------------------15%
5 ----------------------------------------18%
6 ----------------------------------------21%
7 ----------------------------------------25%
8 ----------------------------------------30%
9 ----------------------------------------50%

example: 8(Aligned) x 413(Epic HP) = 3304 hp + (3304 x .30(30% bonus) = 4295.2 hp

Ontop of aligned star bonuses, each star will gain a separate bonus. ie: an epic hp, 413hp aligned will gain a small bonus and raise it to roughly 460 hp.

To earn courses you need talent points. Your talent points are always being earned online and offline. You can also earn free courses by opening boxes in the daily quest... Heaven Treasury.

The amount and speed of the points you receive is based on your name color(talent status) and your location.... Either inside twins cities-city or everywhere else. And having jiang hu mode enabled.

The talent bar is your current talent points, the number on that bar is the actual number. When you reach 10,000 points you earn 1 course and the timer, the bar, and the talent points reset and start over.

There is a timer to the right of the bar that tells you exactly how long it will be until you achieve 10,000 points. Note: this window does not refresh itself. You need to close and open to update the timer.

There is two ways to earn talent points. Either inside twin city, or a safe spot. Your house, market, etc.. Keep in mind if you are in twin city you must be alive to earn talent points.

Next you need to earn a name color or talent status, there is 5. Each color determines how fast you obtain talent points.
BASIC 1 INSIDE TC 32min | OUTSIDE TC 1,000min

INSIDE TC 16min | OUTSIDE TC 500min

INSIDE TC 12min | OUTSIDE TC 384min


INSIDE TC 6.4min | OUTSIDE TC 192min

To obtain a higher name color(talent status) you must be in jiang hu mode and kill other jiang hu players OR do the daily quest named Heaven Treasury, each box you open your talent status will go up one color.

NOTE: RED NAME players and BLACK NAME players can be killed by Jiang Hu Mode fighters. And you WILL loose gear as normal

You start as a blue(basic) jiang hu killer and no matter how many times you die you will always stay blue. To achieve green you must kill another blue or higher. And so on...

When you achieve green(level 2), killing more blue players DOES NOTHING. You do not earn talent points. You do not earn name color. You do not earn talent status or courses.

Killing any jiang hu fighter below your color will earn you nothing so you MUST HUNT for higher name colors(talent status).

If you believe you cannot reach a higher level you must stay alive with the city for 30x times faster talent point earnings. If you go to a safer area, offline tg, or offline you will earn talent points based on your name color, just slower. But much faster than blue(basic).

JiangHu Recommendations
Grades are based on the total amount of inner-strength all of your 9 stages of jiang hu stars & alignments are. There are 15 grades total.

To achieve grade 14 you must have all ULTRA stars unaligned or aligned
To achieve grade 15 you must have all EPIC stars unaligned or aligned

After achieving grade 14 & 15 you are eligible to purchase skill souls. Skill souls are basically "weapon accessories" for you skill effects.

There are several ways to use cps in jiang hu.

Extra study button up to 500 cps (system uses bound cps first)
First use is 10cp, then 20, 30, 40, 50.
With the spook bound cps i receive weekly (and so should you) i would use one extra study a day.

Check the box for a higher chance of a better quality attribute, though it does not guarantee to keep the current attribute, but it does increase the rate of receiving a higher quality (general consensus is an extra 20pct chance)

Check the box for the highest chance of a better quality attribute, though this also does not guarantee to keep the current attribute(general consensus is an extra 50pct chance)

General Consensus for using the Higher and Highest Checkboxes are:
  • 5 cp extra guarantees sharp or better
  • 50 cp extra guarantees pure or better
If the attribute changes and screws up your previously attribute you must pay 20 cps to fall back to the original attribute, or continue trying to get back that original attribute.

Chaotic path means that you are trying to study an ultra but you want more or you just hate the attribute and/or its useless for that particular stage for you. If you get an epic after studying an ultra there is a system message….and epics are actually pretty rare except on stage 1 for some reason.

Studying while having a higher color (talent status) supposedly gives you a higher chance of achieving a higher quality star.

Example: If you study all 10 of your free points with a green name you have a small chance of getting rares, ultras, and epics. Now, if you study all 10 of your free studies with say… purple, gold, or orange name, there is surely a higher chance of getting high quality results in your studies, your welcome.

When you have nothing linked on almost all stages but you know exactly what you want on each stage, write it down and work on it. Do not study the same star over and over.

Example: Say you want stage 9 to be all max hp. Say you have 2 hp stars and the rest are not. Don’t sit there and study the same star over and over next to the two existing hp stars. Instead, go around in the circle and try each one at a time and keep going around, youll get all 9 hp faster than studying the same star 10 times with no luck.

I personally only still spend 10 bound cps daily as an extra chance to further my jiang hu… because i have all 9 stages linked. So I currently work on 1 star at a time starting with the weakest quality and study it 11 times until it gets a higher quality. This works roughly 75pct of the time. When it fails i have to wait till the next day to try to fix that star.

Having seven 2nd reborn characters I can definately say starting your linking at stage 9 and working your way down to stage 1 is WAY more successful and faster

Skill souls are basically "weapon accessories" for you skill effects. They ONLY visually replace the graphical effect that appears when you use a skill and nothing more. Prices are roughly 8600cps to purchase after your jiang hu has reached either grade 14 or 15.

Grade 14 allows you to buy basic skill souls
Grade 15 allows you to buy the super skill souls
Skill Souls can be purchased from the Martial Dealer in the Market (208,193)
Here is each skill soul available and the skills they visually replace.
