Age of Wushu is a complex MMORPG based on the Ancient Chinese Jianghu. Contrary to most Martial Arts MMO's with combat-limited gameplay Age of Wushu is a true sandbox. It has a very strong focus on crafting/player economy where even things like painting, Weiqi (similar to Go) or begging are very important. It has housing as well.
The business model is F2P with voluntary VIP subscription as well as Cash Shop. The latter includes for the Western market uncommon features like a purchase limit with ingame currency overcome by cash shop currency, player-to-player trading only with cash shop currency and temporarily expansion of inventory or temporary-only mounts purchases by the cash shop currency.
