Sects Spying

From Age of Wulin Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

50px Sect Spying is an important sect and PvP event in Age of Wulin, where players can steal information from other, rival sects while avoiding patrols.

Event Requirements

Permanent Event

  1. Players leaving the novice protection stage can enter the Jianghu mode (pvp mode).
  2. Select from the target sect scenes.
  3. You can't spy on your sect and only one Jianghu fight is allowed.

Event Guideline

1. After joining spy events, players are transported to a random location. The player gets three spy skills to help steal intelligence from offline intelligence disciples or avoid scouts from offline disciple patrols.
2. Spy disciples secrets by communicating with someone previously planted in the target sect. Or the use spy skills against offline intelligence disciples. If spy skills use ends in failure, players will show increasing vulnerability scores or be paralysed.
3. When a spy's vulnerability exceeds 80, their identity is revealed and patrol players can attack.
4. When intelligence is successfully obtained, the player can collect rewards from the sect intelligence chief.
5. The player can collect a weekly spy task from the sect leader. Large weekly are available when completed.

How to fail
You fail if your spy identity is revealed and you are killed by patrols. Note there is now an alert function to Patrolling player characters when you become exposed. You may suddenly find a player patroler teleport to you upon your spy identity being revealed!.

How to win
Successfully take from 1 to 10 intelligence pieces back to your sect spymaster. Note it is not required to always take the full 10 pieces back to get credit for a mission. Rewards partly scale with amounts of intelligence delivered. But sect contribution remains the same for 1 Int or 10 Int delivered


There are no real preparations to make before going on a spying mission.

One thing to bear in mind though is that the Sect Leader hands out a weekly quest every Monday, which requires spying on specific sects and rewards a lot of Sect Honour Certificates (70 in all). The quest also gives the player Tokens that allow teleporting to any sect simply by talking to the Sect Leader. If this quest is not completed by Sunday, players will not be able to receive the new weekly quest that Monday.

Starting the Sect Spying Event

The first thing players must do to spy on another sect is go to the target (by any means, whether it be with the Leader's Token from the weekly quest, by stagecoach, riding a horse, using a foothold, etc.)

Once there, there are two ways to start the spying event:

Getting Intelligence

Players can get intelligence from a few sources:

  • Intelligence Disciples: Offline players wandering around that carry intelligence
  • Planted Agents: NPCs pretending to be from the sect that will leak information when talked to. There are usually about three of these in each sect. SInce the last update many have been given more mobility than before and will have to be searched for.
