Age of Wushu Wiki
Royal Guards character

Royal Guards is one of the Eight Great Schools in Age of Wushu. Vicious and cruel, the members of the Royal Guards seek power and control. Their brutal, merciless attacks are the dark twin of Shaolin.


The Royal Guards are the most famous of all the Ming Dynasty intelligence agencies. They were established to supervise, spy on, and oppress any unlawful acts by government officials. They can enter the Royal Courts freely to report to the Emperor directly. The Royal Guards are active in all corners of China and secretly join in many major tournament events. They are a cruel and ruthless group that garner fear from all other schools.[1]


Royal Guards' Soul Chasing Claw is feared in PvP for its huge amount of ranged crowd control and high damage. Royal Guards mainly contribute to PvE by using their Eagle Claw Fist attacks to apply health-absorbing debuffs to enemies, which allows allies to recover health.

Royal Guards' main weaknesses are matchup-specific. Soul Chasing Claw can be rushed down, Soul Losing Blade has little finesse, and Eagle Claw Fist relies too much on gimmicky mixups. All are beatable, though doing so can be a real challenge.
