Featured System - Fleeing System

The fleeing system is rather interesting involving classical martial-art concepts. When players' HP reduces to 0, they won't die instantly, but enter into a fleeing state when they will move at a very slow pace. They can drag themselves slowly to a safe place to recover their HP by using Qi or go back to the village to revive again. Please note that players won't be attacked by monsters in the fleeing state unless they are discovered in the course of using Qi.

In the future, players are more likely to cure teammates with the use of Qi to quicken their recovery speed, which adds more martial-art flavor to the game.

Featured System - Auto-arranged Action Keys

Skills will be arranged in the action bar automatically rather than manually after characters have leveled up and learnt skills and appropriate skills will be switched according to different situations. For example, different stances, continuous skills and escape skills will be selected based on a target's distance. Different attack instructions will be produced when kung-fu masters are suppressed and different martial-art attributes will be given to force masters depending on the battle situation.
Therefore, battles in Blade & Soul look precise and compact, but easy and humanized indeed.
