What do needles and MMOs have to do with each other? Hopefully, normally, thankfully nothing. However, Age of Wushu
has drawn inspiration from the Chinese technique and philosophy of acupuncture to draw up its character-building Meridian system
Meridians are sort of like talent trees that can be charged up with "chi," a resource that's accumulated through battles. Each of the nine meridians offers ways to boost abilities, lower skill cooldowns, and change skills. All but one meridian are tied to one of the game's combat schools.
says that it is possible with a lot of hard work for players to master all nine meridians on a single character.
