Leveling up is extremely important in almost all games. This is especially true in games like Wo Long Fallen Dynasty. Once you level up, your character will become stronger and have enhanced stats. That is why this guide will show you how to level up and what each Virtue does in Wo Long.

Since most players are familiar with terms from the Souls series, the Virtues can be a bit confusing. Worry not because we will show you what each Virtue does and which one you should level up as a new player. With that said, let’s jump right in and get started.

How to Level Up in Wo Long Fallen Dynasty

Raising a Battle Flag on the map.

While exploring the map, you will come across various Battle Flags. These act like the Bonfires in Wo Long Fallen Dynasty. You need to raise them and rest at them to regain your HP and healing items. Keep in mind that this will respawn all the nearby enemies as well.

Once you rest at the Battle Flag, you will get an option to “Level Up”. Select this and level up the stat that you prefer. Each stat has different advantages that you can gain by upgrading them. During the early game, you will level up easily after defeating a small group of enemies.

However, the more you progress, the more difficult it will be to level up. This is because you will require more Genuine Qi to level up each stat.

What Does Each Virtue Do?
