In Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty , players will have to defeat mythical creatures and powerful enemies. Combat is the core mechanic in Wo Long, so here we explain what the Spirit is and how to best use it. It is a very important tool during fights.

What is Spirit in Wo Long Fallen Dynasty?

In many soulslike games, players have to carefully plan their next moves, paying attention not only to what is happening on the screen, but also keeping an eye on their stamina. This is more or less what the Spirit bar is. It can have both positive and negative values . If your Spirit bar has a positive value , you will have access to powerful attacks like Martial Arts or Wizardry Spells .

If the gauge fills to the very end of the negative value , the character will be stunned for a period of time. You can't do anything in this state. When the bar goes back to 0 (the center), you will be able to move again. Enemies also have Spirit (and it works in the same way in their case).

How to increase Spirit in Wo Long Fallen Dynasty

To gain access to better attacks , you need to gain positive Spirit . You will receive it every time you hit an enemy , or parry enemy attacks . This will also cause their Spirit bar to decrease.

In addition, when you do nothing and your Spirit was negative, it will increase after a short while, but only to zero.

How does Spirit decrease?

Unfortunately, there are many more ways to lose Spirit. Martial Arts and Wizardry Spells consume this bar. Moreover, if you use these skills multiple times in a short period of time, the gauge will quickly drop to a maximum negative value.

If you are constantly attacked by enemies and your parry fails , you will also start losing your Spirit. Also, if it was above zero and you haven't taken any offensive action in a short period of time, it will start to drop.

There is purple water in the game. Standing in it will cause the character to constantly lose Spirit. Avoid fighting in it since defeating enemies will be much more difficult.
