[Intro] [Kung Fu Fighting] Using skills in 9 Dragons Awaken is quite simple. Press C/ Kung Fu and you will see the skills of your character. You can put them in your quick kung fu bar for faster use : To use your skills you need to be in combat mode, but some skills like meditation, steps and lightfoot can be uses in peace mode. You can change stances by either clicking on the spearhead on the skillbar or by hitting the Tab key. [Peace Mode] You must be in peace mode in order to do anything that is not considered combat. This includes reading a tome or manual, consuming an elixir, or opening a stand to sell items. When you are in peace mode, you will recover HP and VE. Also, you cannot use and Kung Fu, except for Lightfoot when in peace mode. It takes less time to open a chest when you are in peace mode, making dungeons slightly easier. When a player revives or enters/exits a dungeon, they will automatically be switched to peace mode. [Combat mode] Players spend most of their time in combat mode. This is the stance required for using Kung Fu, so players will be using this stance whenever they are grinding. The only times a player will leave combat mode are when they want to perform an action where they need to be in peace mode. [Rage] Rage is a state in which a player can deal much more damage than usual, but at the cost of defense. One gains Rage whenever a monster scores a Critical Hit and inflicts wounds against him. The amount of rage a character has can be seen as yellow in the bar above the experience bar.When a player's rage reaches 100%, he enters rage mode automatically.The amount of Rage that player has will begin to rapidly decrease until it reaches 0.00%, at which point Rage mode will end. [Berserk Mode] When a player is in rage mode, they can choose to activate Berserk Mode, which allows the player to deal massive amounts of damage, but at the same time, greatly reduces his defense.When in Berserk Mode, the player is surrounded by a glow, and his Rage decreases much more rapidly. Berserk Mode can be activated by licking the experience bar reticule when in Rage Mode.
