There are three types of currency in Age of Wushu: Gold, Silver Taels, and Silver Coins.
Gold[edit | edit source]
Gold is the currency that is used for purchase from the Cash Shop. Gold can be purchased via the "Top Up" button in the cash shop ingame (opens Snail Games' own website - which does not seem https protected) or via Amazon. 10 gold cost $3.
Gold can be used to purchase fashion items, horse whistles, and life skill books from the Cash Shop. Gold is also used to purchase VIP service or be converted to Silver Taels at a rate of 1 gold per 10 Liang Taels.
Beware of gold scammers, and only buy gold from the official sites!
Silver[edit | edit source]
Silver is the currency used within the game and comes in two forms, Coins and Taels. Both forms of silver comes in 3 different units: Wen, Liang, and Ding. The Wen is the smallest unit and is the bases of all currency. One thousand Wen make a Liang. One thousand Liang makes a Ding.
Silver Coins[edit | edit source]
Silver Coins are bound to the character and cannot be used for trade between players. Coins are used as the basic currency in the game, such as making purchases in shops, stagecoach fees, item repair fees, and so on. Players earn Coins by completing storyline quests, daily tasks, Forbidden Instances, influence challenges, or school missions. There is a 360 Liang daily spending limit for Coins. Once this limit has been reached, the player has the option to use Taels instead.
Silver Taels[edit | edit source]
Unlike Coins, Taels are not bound to the character. They are often refered to as "unbound Liang/Wen/Ding". Taels can be used for trade between players as well as for basic purchases when the player has reached their daily spending limit for Coins.
Can be used to
- Buy/Sell between players
- Repair gear when its damaged or broken
- buy Flying skills and other rare books from the "random encounter npc's"
- put a bounty on criminals
- bribe guards to get out of jail
- train your self in "Practice Martial Arts" (Unlimited amount)
The number of ways through which a player can earn Taels is limited. At present, they can only obtained by kidnapping players, collecting bounties, trading with other players, or converting from gold.
Can be obtained by
- Kidnapping people and selling them to certain npc in certain maps. That gives you Evil points though. Yields both bound and unbound money. Kidnapping will net you 1-15 Liang each time and can only be done once an hour.
- Learn a Manufacturing life skill and craft weapon, accessories, armor, annotation books etc which other players can buy with unbound Liangs
- Do escort missions. Each time you finish an escort it gives you about 20-25 bound Liangs and 8 Goods Receipt (Coarse). 10 Goods Receipt can be traded into 1 Small Heaven Undertaking Pill which can be sold for 3-5 unbound Liangs each to players.
- Farm flax (the best approach is to farm the robbers near Shen Castle for these) or farm up high demand plants (Dogbane, Ramie, Hemp, etc) and sell it on the market to other player.
- Offline jobs can get you unbound Liangs as well. Simply go to a map where rarely anyone goes to and you can easily get an offline job for your char.
- For the more advance people trading is the key. Buy low and sell high for Tael.
- Instances! Sell loot for Taels.
- Random Encounters are the best for generating high liang. This requires you to have affinity with many NPCs in game - but they will support you by giving you access to hidden quests which give you workbenches, looms and skills which sell for high amounts of Taels in the market place
Carry limits[edit | edit source]
- Non Jianghu VIP--8 Ding of Silver Coins, 30 Ding of Taels.
- Jianghu VIP--10 Ding of Silver Coins, 1000 Ding of Taels.
Joint Deletion[edit | edit source]
When Join Deletion is enabled, it is possible to spend Silver Taels instead of Silver Coins when the player does not have enough Silver Coins or their use is restricted. To enable deduction, you must select Joint Deletion Option on the bottom left area of your backpack interface.
