Sacred sites are locations scattered across the world of Jianghu that provide environmental bonuses to your rate of skill cultivation. The cultivation icon above your health bar will display a colored dot indicating the type of environment.
Each type of skill has a favored environment for training and two that provide lesser bonuses. The different environments are common and fairly easy to locate, though places suitable for a full team practice are less so. Most team practices are done within a school scene at an easily accessible sacred site.
Sacred sites provide a flat 20% bonus to Team Practice regardless of the skill being cultivated.Towns no longer provide a penalty but no bonus either so its best to use a sacred site.
The normal leveling speed is 43 cultivation points per 15 seconds.Being in a skill specific area like the table below shows adds either a +1 or +2 to the 43.Using these bonuses provides 2-5% increase to cultivation speed which is negligible.
