As game itself states, Flying skills aren't just for show - they are extremely useful, especially in combat. They are not only a trend, but a life style in the Jianghu.
Players will find Flying skills to be one of the most important character upgrades they should be making in order to further develop it. Learning the Flying skills will open the limits to players' movement style and combat tactics which will make them true masters of the Jianghu.
The Flying skills give players the ability to move freely across rooftops and surroundings, let them explore more of the landscapes, reach random treasure boxes that would otherwise be too high, and escape pursuing enemies or vengeful victims.
Since Flying skills are in fact 'skills', players must learn them through unique skill books similar to the Internal and Combat skills found in-game. Once learned, these skills usually do not require any cultivation: players simply study the script and now have these excellent bonus abilities.
Some of these skills can be found strewn about in the world by their pages, some rewarded in Influence Challenges (to be verified) or Forbidden Instances, and some through the Random encounters that unlock as character's life in Jianghu progresses. In some cases they are tradable and can be sold in stalls.

Flying skill Points Edit
Flying skills rely on players' Flying skill attribute value. Having more of these lets players run and fly longer. Flying skill Points value is adjusted and modified through various means. When players use Flying skills the blue bar that appears tells them how much of it remains. This is important, for example, when using a Flying skill to fall from a higher ledge: players probably don’t want to lose Flying skill Points mid-fall and complete the rest of the decent falling to a 'thud'. Likewise, criminals don’t want to be running from constables while wanted for murder and lose Flying skill Points trying to climb the side of a city wall.
There are three types of Flying skills:
- 12 Basic Flying skills:
- Skillful Flying skills - passively improve the effectiveness of all the other Flying skills, based on Cultivation
- School related - need relevant Internal Skills as support; all Schools have their own focuses in studying these
- Other Flying skills
