Rootless Clan

From Age of Wulin Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Rootless Clan are a cabal of eunuchs who amassed vast wealth while serving as tax collectors of the empire. They have been around for ages. Emperor after emperor, dynasty after dynasty, the Rootless Clan still carries on. They rely on the Emperor's power to survive, while continuously gaining their own power. They are outcasts of society and are resented, abandoned, and fooled by the world. They have no dignity, respect, or recognition. All they have is self-pity.

In order to survive, they have to do things that ordinary people refuse to do. The Rootless Clan does not belong to any other party in the royal court. They only serve themselves, although most disciples are currently (or retired) eunuchs of the royal palace. Since only a few disciples come from the Jianghu, the Rootless Clan is not in alliance with the Eunuch party of the royal court. They mock their own Rootlessness and therefore call themselves the Rootless Clan. For self-defence, disciples of the Rootless Clan began learning martial arts. Later, as the clan grew larger, the martial arts were used to achieve devious goals. As a result, the clan disciples are resented by the people of the Jianghu.

Some forces are considered evil yet powerful in the world, such as the evil dragon Jiaolong. The Rootless Clan is just as Jiaolong, evil yet powerful, and feared by all.

Faction set

Evil-Repelling Sword:
A sword skill derived from the Sunflower Manual script fragments. Originally created by Lin Yuantu and later acquired by the Rootless Clan, legends has it that the Evil-Repelling Sword has 72 moves which value speed over force and force over entanglement. Masters of this skill will move delicately with unspeakable speed, retrieving once they hit the target, and never leaving anything behind. For years, the skill of Evil-Repelling Sword remains mysterious because it's so fatally efficient that anyone that has witnessed the moves has died.

Faction internal skill

Haze Sky Registry:
Once the secret inner skill of the royal family, it was adopted by the Rootless Clan. The skill emphasizes the reversal Qi, absorbing the forces of nature into one's body so that one can generate Qi and strength from absorbing anything in the world. Masters of this skill can change the colours of the skies, generate substantial amount of Qi, and have a killing will stronger than anything else. Nothing will survive.

Joining the Rootless Clan

Requirements
There are several ways to join the Rootless Clan as listed below.

Joining through special condition
Cultivate the infamous Sunflower Manual to level 25 and receive an invite from the Rootless Clan, no strings attached.
Joining through random encounter

, but you must first have your character's level to be "Despise Everyone" or above. You will also need to be a eunuch which can be done through a questline that's started in Jinling, or through the Rootless castration event which takes place in the evening at a different city depending on the day of the week (more info about the castration event in the daily quests of the Rootless Clan).

The character cannot be a member of another sect or faction.

To join Rootless, one must also become a eunuch. To initiate the questline to become a eunuch, speak with the NPC at 839,1532 in Jinling. After doing a few small tasks for him that eventually will cost you 200 unbound Liang, he will tell you the coordinates for the NPC at whom you can start the castration questline. Completing this questline will either cost you a Buddhist Monk's Knife (random encounter item), or 440L unbound Liang.

You can also get castrated for free after reaching Peak of Perfection (level 5 5th inner, level 15 4th inner etc.) from the daily Rootless Clan castration quest (Monday-Friday) starting at 8pm (20:00-22:00) server time, in the city the Human Trafficker event takes place in on that day. This has a very large chance of failing, however.

First use the Soul Cleaver Array with 4 other Rootless Clan disciples in the designated city scene depending on the weekday (shown below). Then use the Discover One's Enemies skill on a male target in that scene to mark him. The target must have an internal skill level of at least Peak of Perfection in order for it to work. If Discover One's Enemies is applied to the target, then NPCs from various sects will spawn at the site to prevent you from castrating him (in other words, they will attack you). Lastly, use the Joy Annihilation skill on the target when he's in injured state to launch the castration. A giant red pavilion with a timer above it will appear on top of the target and the castration is then in progress. Until the timer reaches zero, protect the red castration pavilion from other players which may attack and destroy it. The castration event has approximately less than a 5% success rate of actually castration the target, but a sure way to check if the castration succeeded is to check your mail for a successful castration reward bag. The Rootless Clan contribution and reputation will be awarded when the red castration pavillion's timer expires.
