Once you choose Musician as your Culture Life Skill you gain the ability to 'play music' under your Life Skill Menu.

Musician Menu

Starting playing opens a new screen with a timed mini game that is similar to Guitar Hero. Two groups of keys will be randomly generated: one group will be chosen from the letter combinations I+J, O+K and P+L and the other from A+Z, S+X and D+C (as you can see, they are keys that are vertical to each other on each side of your keyboard).

When the blue musical notes pass through these letter combinations, you must press the correct key on the keyboard and the notes will disappear; failing to do this will be counted as a mistake.

The 5 green lights at the bottom of the playing interface indicate how many times players are allowed to miss targets; when all lights are off, players will fail the mini game. These lights will turn off under 2 circumstances:

  1. missing 1 note (1 light goes off)
  2. blank shots accumulated up to a certain number, depending on the difficulty level of the tune; blank shot = pressing a wrong key or pressing a key when there are no notes. (1 light goes off)

To the right of the playing interface there is a time bar which shows the progress of the current song. The bar will fill blue as time goes on; when it is full and provided you didn't use up your miscounts, you will be successful in playing the tune.

Music Playing - Practice Mode

There are two ways of playing music:
  • Practice Mode (large Qin): activated by clicking 'Play music' next to the tune in your music book. Once you complete playing the score you gain experience and rank points as a Musician.
  • Battle Mode (small Qin): activated by playing a tune from the shortcut bar. This adds Buffs to teammates or Debuffs to enemies but does not increase musical experience.  To add a song to your shortcut bar, drag the song icon from the music book to an empty slot on the bar.

Upon learning the skill, the player will receive the title Music Novice and can perform the Musician Daily Task. To use the life skill, the player must have a qin (more accurate guqin = ancient long chinese zither without frets and bridges) in the backpack.  The quality of the Qin will not affect the amount of XP gained from practising (or the strength of the buff/debuff), only how much durability it has (how many songs you can play before it falls to pieces).

Note: At the current time (05 June 2013) it appears that debuff songs (those that affect the enemy) do NOT work.  extensive testing within the guild (using duels, Jianghu mode PKs, guild war, and school war) has been unable to land a debuff on anyone.  This includes letting the songs play to completion.  As such, it is best to focus on songs that buff your team mates.

Hint: Reaching a certain identity will activate additional effects for songs. These include:

  • stronger effect
  • play song automatically

Which identity if any will trigger these effects is dependant on the song, and is stated in the tooltip for the song (hover the mouse cursor over the song icon).

At this time, many (all?) of the skills that state the the music can be played automatically in battle, and the player may still use skills do not actually allow for the use of combat skills. The mini game must still be played to give the buff or debuff effect.
