Guide for Amazing Cultivation Simulator – A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

In Amazing Cultivation Simulator, if you hope your character to be remarkable, getting a T1 Golden Core almost is a basic requirement!

 

Introduction

*I am not a native English speaker. Don’t be surprised if you find some sentences are weird.
*This guide may contains errors.It may be updated anytime if I find them, so don’t copy the content and post it to other platform.
*This article does not aim to provide EVERY knowledge and strategies for Core Shaping. It provides the basic knowledge I think that is enough for a play to shape a T1 Golden Core. If you are looking for a super warrior, you need more.
*It is written for players who have basic knowledge of this game. If you are a new player, it is not a appropriate guide for you. Please don’t concern about the grade of Golden Core. Just let your character reach the Golden Core first. It is much more thing you need to experience.

In this guide, I am going to talk about the factors that affect the grade of Golden Core and discuss some methods to fulfill such factors. It may help your character to reach a T1 Golden Core.

Reasons of getting a High-grade Golden Core

And first, why your character needs a T1 Golden Core?

The grade of Golden Core will directly affect the basic Qi of your character, it means it affects Qi capacity of your character.Higher the grade they have, Higher Max Qi they have.

In Amazing Cultivation Simulator, if your character is cultivating through Xiandao Cultivation (仙道/內丹術), you can consider your character’s Qi is both of the “HP” and “MP” of your character.

When your character is combating, casting spell or using Miracle, Qi will be used. If your character run out of Qi, your character will be in dangerous, because your character will be unable to cast
a spell,use Artifact to combat or use Qi to protect himself/herself — It means your character’s body will be Injured by enemy and he/she will die.

Therefore, getting a high-grade Golden Core-

  • Increases the chance of Wining a Combat
  • Increases ability to maintain a Diagram’s (陣) Qi (優質充電寶)
  • Allows your character to use high consumption Spell, Miracle
  • Allows your character to craft a high grade Artifact (Crafting high-grade Artifact need so much Qi)
  • Increases the chance of success in ascension (the Qi of first tribulation(天劫) may be around 400 thousand Qi to 800 thousand Qi(or more) based on the difficulty of your game)

,etc.

Understand the “Core Shaping”

The “Period of Core Shaping” (結丹期) is very important period for your character. In the ending of the “Period of Core Shaping”, you will choose a location for your character to perform “Core Shaping”(結丹).

The idea of “Core Shaping” comes from Taoism, after Core Shaping, it will be a “spiritual core” inside the human body. This core is called Golden Core(金丹).

In the game, you have to make everything well prepared before “Core Shaping”, because the moment of “Core Shaping” will directly affect the quality of the Golden Core.

SO collect the perfect materials,construct the perfect location and wait for the perfect timing to shape the perfect damn core.

Once your character reaches “The Period of Golden Core”(金丹期), the grade of the Golden Core
will be locked and become unchangeable.Your character “almost” impossible to change it unless he/she reborns (It is off-topic).Therefore, you have to be careful, especially playing “Immortal Mode”.

During “Core Shaping”,a progress bar appears.When progress bar is loading, all your character’s Qi will be converted to your character’s basic Qi .

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

The progress bar

Remember. This progress is dynamic, when progress bar is running, every point of Qi will be converted based on various factors currently. It means, before the progress bar disappears, you have to maintain each factors such as weather, Qi density, etc, are perfect for “Core Shaping” in order to get a great efficiency.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

The progress is not ended yet

The factors affect the Core Shaping

As mentioned above, now we know a fact. During “Core Shaping”, all the character’s Qi will be converted to the character’s basic Qi, and the conversion efficiency will be affected by various factors.

Therefore, there are two points to get a T1 Golden Core.

  • 1.Increase the max Qi of your character
  • 2.Increase the conversion efficiency by fulfilling the requirements (factors)

Point one is easy to understand, but point two is complicated, so please refer to the following picture:

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

This is 7 points affects the efficiency:

  • Law
  • Mental State
  • Weather
  • Season
  • Yin Yang
  • Element of the location
  • Qi Bonus of the location

Based on that, I sum up some simple points for you to increase the chance of forming a high-grade gold core:

  • Increase the max Qi of your character
  • Make sure your character “matches” the law he/she practices
  • Adjust your character’s mind state before Core Shaping
  • Choose a perfect season and day that boosts the law he/she practices based on “Five elements” (五行)
  • Bring the weather that is suitable for Core Shaping based on Five elements (五行)
  • Find a timing that boosts his/her law according to Yin Yang (陰陽)
  • Select and create a location that boosts the law he/she practices based on Five elements (五行) and has “high Qi density”

 

Increase the max Qi

This point is ready easy to understand, but how?

1.Find a talented character

There is a trait that affects the Max Qi of the character – Qi sense

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Qi sense

Every character has trait called “Qi sense”. It will directly affect the max Qi of charactor, so you should choose a character with high Qi sense to become an inner disciple.

Also, Qi sense is a variable affected by constitution. You could slightly increase the Qi sense by increasing the character’s constitution.

2. Studing Manual

There are many manuals that increase the max Qi. In the game(version 1.15) , there are 12 Supreme Laws for Xiandao Cultivation. You are suggested to collect them all, and transcribe them to Manual Pavilion.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

The Manual Pavilion

After transcribing, your character can learn the manuals from 12 Supreme Law by studying the book from Manual Pavilion now.Study all manuals that:

  • Increases the Max Qi
  • Increases the Qi sense

That is two manuals that you have to be careful if your character studies it for increasing Max Qi. They are “Lunarfrost Form”(太陰鍛體) and “Reformed Lifeblood” (血骨煉形).

Lunarfrost Form
Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
If your character is male, “something” will happen after studying “Lunarfrost Form”. You can find a character has the Miracle “reconstruction” (再造術) Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
to deal with it.
Reformed Lifeblood
Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
If your character study “Reformed Lifeblood”, your character will suffer from long term smelting.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
.
Smelting

Your character can recover by taking “Panacea Pill”(再造金丹), but it is hard to find in early game play.Therefore, you should consider whether studying it if you don’t have Panacea Pill in the game.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
.
Panacea Pill

3. Taking drug

There are various items your character can take by increasing Max Qi after becoming a inner disciple.I am not going to list them all, because it is not a guide for hard-core player.I just provide you some normal choices.

Red Ginseng
Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
Your characters can collect them randomly by farming “Ginseng”, adventuring or trading.
Ganoderma
Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
Your characters can collect them randomly by farming “Lingzhi”, adventuring or trading.
Earth Flux
Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
You can collect them by adventuring, trading, etc.
PURPLE Junk pill
Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
You can find it by entering the location “Alchemist’s Peak” (煉丹峰) or randomly get it if your character perform a failed alchemy in a “very ominous Alchemy Furnace” (大凶丹爐).

Remember! ONLY a “PURPLE junk pill“(紫毀丹) Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
will work.You can distinguish it by observation on the description. A purple junk pill will have description like this:

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

After taking purple junk pill, your character will become unconscious.You have to heal him/her immediately by using “Panacea” Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
or giving “Fire Power” Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Wicked Flux
Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
You can collect them by adventuring, trading, etc, but you have to be careful that taking Wicked Flux will decrease character’s mental state forever! Therefore your character should take it depending on your situation.Don’t take too many of them.

There are some items like “Phoenix Flesh”, “Flood Dragon Flesh”,etc, which can increase the Max Qi of the character,but normally you get them in late game. I am not going talk too much about them, because if you can kill a dragon I think you already don’t need this guide 🙂

Tips: By costing 1 “Anguish Soul Gem “(幽珀), you can use Miracle “Specter Refinement” Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
(幽淬之法) to increase the tier of the drug.The effect of a drug will be increased if the Tier NAME (the color of the name, not number) is upgraded,

4.Inner Cauldron

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Inner Cauldron

This is a function called “inner Cauldron”.When a character cultivating , character can slowly refine max Qi from inner Cauldron. Inner Cauldron limit is a variable affected by character’s potential, and it will decide how many max Qi can be refined from it.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Potential

After becoming an inner disciple, the character’s potential will be locked. Character’s potential is affected by the 5 attributes (Perception,Constitution,Charisma,Intelligence,Luck) of the character.Higher they are, higher the potential is.To increase the potential of the character, you should increase the 5 talents I mentioned above before promoting him/her to be an inner disciple.

The refinement speed is decided by Cultivation Speed Bonus. Increasing cultivating speed will increase the refinement speed at the same time.If your character’s cultivating speed is high enough, your character can delay “Core Shaping” and try refining the max Qi from Inner Cauldron.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Cultivation Speed Bonus

However I don’t recommend doing refinement if you only want a T1 Golden Core.Refinement is a way used so as to shape a perfect warrior in late game. In early game, your character’s cultivation speed will be very slow, so waiting for refinement will be extremely inefficient! Don’t wait for it in early game!

5.Relic

Just let you know there is a relic called “Spirit Pagoda”(萬靈塔) which can increase the person’s max Qi. “Relic” is a item that can be placed at room. If the room fulfills its requirement, relic will affect the character who stays inside the room.

In the late game, you can get “Spirit Pagoda” by defeating “Ancient Cultivator”. However the chance is very low.Therefore don’t waste your time if you just want T1 Golden Core.It is for shaping a super warrior. At the moment, I don’t even have this relic.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Spirit Pagoda

The compatibility between cultivator and the law

In the previous topic, I have mentioned about how you can increase your character’s max Qi. Then I am going to talk about how to increase the efficiency.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Remember this picture right?

It is 7 factors you can fulfill to increase efficiency. In this topic, I will talk about the “Law” , the compatibility between cultivator and the law.

So what is compatibility? We knows a character have 6 attributes, and they are Perception, Constitution, Charisma, Intelligence, Luck and Potential.

Each Law requests different attributes. Therefore you should check whether the character is compatible with the law they are going to study before choosing them to become a inner disciple.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

The compatibility table

You can check the compatibility by watching the “Match” in the compatibility table. The more, the better.

You can increase a character’s attributes by various methods. However, before we talk about them, do you remember the Inner Cauldron? If you plan to order your character refining the max Qi from Inner Cauldron, some methods should be taken before becoming inner disciple, because of the “potential”.

Originally posted by myself:

After becoming an inner disciple, the character’s potential will be locked. Character’s potential is affected by the 5 attributes (Perception,Constitution,Charisma,Intelligence,Luck) of the character.Higher they are, higher the potential is.

Increase the potential will increase the Inner Cauldron limit. It is why some methods are recommended to take before becoming inner disciple.

OK, let’s start.

Methods before becoming inner disciple:

1.Miracle

3. Asking a immortal to help

If a immortal is ascended by practicing “Primordia Alchemy Law” (九轉金丹直指), you can ask them to “remold” a outer disciple by costing 25 incense.It will increase five attributes of a outer disciple.

After a cultivator ascending, he/she will leave a “Mortal Body” on the location he/she has ascended. By clicking the him/her Mortal Body, you can order a outer disciple to rite him/her by ritual so as to get “incense” and ask him/her to remold a outer disciple.

2.Take Drug before shaping a golden core

Forming Pill (築基丹)
Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
It will increase the character’s charisma, constitution, perception, intelligence by 30% for 48 hours. Because the effect is temporary, you can take it before your character performs “core shaping” to increase the compatibility temporarily. You may get it from alchemy, adventuring, trading.

Earthly Pill(納地丸)
Ether Pill(逸仙丸)
Wisdom Pill(明通丸)

Your character may take it depending on his/her situation. Because the effect is temporary, you can take it before your character performs “core shaping” to increase the compatibility temporarily. You may get it from alchemy, adventuring, trading.

 

Mental state

This factor is very easy to fulfill. Before your character perform “Golden Core Shaping”, you should adjust his/her mental state by clicking the “mind” button in the training table.

Also Your character can use “Talisman” (符) to improve the your mental state:

Talisman of Tranquil Heart(寧心符)
Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
It is a manual called “Divine Talismans of the five elemental Qi”(五炁神符經), which may be obtained from the secret,”Traces of Ancient Book”(古書踪迹).

Also, in day 285, it will be a secret called “Golden Casket Opened” (金匣开启).You can obtain it by choosing “Chase after the book case sealed with talismans” (追逐一方符文周圍的書匣) if success.

“Primordial Symbols Law” has a manual called “Comprehensive Book of Talismans” that records the method to draw “Talisman of Tranquil Heart”.

 

Talisman of Cave Mind(洞神符)
Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Illustration of Everlasting Prosperity (萬福圖)
Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
It comes from a secret feature released in 2019. When your character visits “Otherworld Rift” in Chinese New Year (Real time,not game time), he/she are supposed to get a manual that allows your inner disciple to produce “Illustration of Everlasting Prosperity”. You may try to manually change your computer’s date to around 5th Feb 2019 in order to get this manual. If you fail to obtain this manual by changing the date to 5th Feb 2019, you are suggested to consult a professional.

Otherworld Rift

 

Talisman of Divinity Mind(天通洞神符)
You can get this Talisman by visiting “Ethereal Cave”. Remember you are supposed to get one in one save only. Don’t lose it.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Ethereal Cave

Also, there are other equipment that can improve the mental state of a character such as clothing, handicraft items, but I am not going to mention them all because they only have pretty slight effect.If you are interested in them, you can investigate by yourself.

Weather

Before we talk about the weather, you have to understand what is Five elements (五行) first. The Five elements is an Chinese concept. In ancient China, people believe that there are “Five Elements” in the world.They are Fire(火),Water(水),Wood(木), Metal(金), and Earth(土).

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

The Five Elements

They may Inter-promote(相生) or inter-overcome(相克) each other:

ElementPromotingOvercoming
Fire(火)Earth(土)Metal(金)
Water(水)Wood(木)Fire(火)
Wood(木)Fire(火)Earth(土)
Metal(金)Water(水)Wood(木)
Earth(土)Metal(金)Water(水)

For more information, please refer to link below:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wuxing_(Chinese_philosophy)

In the game, each weather has its own element. During Core Shaping, you should order your cultivator to use miracle to keep bringing a weather to promote the law that your character study until the end of the progress. For example, if your character is studying “True Sun Refining Law”(三陽三昧丙丁煉火訣), your character should shaping the core during “Noxious Air”.It is because “Noxious Air” contains “Wood” element, and “Wood” promotes “Fire” according to the concept of Five elements.

I draw a simple table for you to choose the weather your character needs:

LawElement of the LawRecommended Weather for Core ShapingElement of the WeatherMiracle that brings the Weather
True Sun Refining Law(三陽三昧丙丁煉火訣)
Emotion Severing Law(太上忘情道)

NoneN/AN/AN/A

The cultivator can learn such miracles from supreme law, or by learning the manual, “Scripture of Heaven Prayer”(祈天經)Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
. It can be learned from the supreme law, “Primordial Symbol Law”, and obtained from the secret,”Traces of Ancient Book”(古書踪迹). After learning this manual, “Scripture of Heaven Prayer”, you will get the 5 miracles you need and a other miracle “Cloud Dispelling Chant”(驅雲訣).

Tip: Asking an immortal to help

If a immortal is ascended by practicing:

  • Six Paths Reincarnation Law(長生六道輪迴經)
  • Myriad Artifact Law(己寅九衝多寶真解)
  • Grand Chariot Wisdom Law(北斗洞心劫法)
  • Seven-Slaughtering Sword(七殺劍訣)
  • Sunflower Refining Law(葵花煉神大法)
  • Heaven Stealing Law(偷天決)

You can ask them to “protect” your disciples by costing 9 incense.After clicking the protect, the weather effect will be cleared immediately,and a weather buff “Air of Cultivation” will be granted for 9 days. Your character will have a “5+” weather buff during the “Air of Cultivation”.

Season

Just like weather, each season has its own element. Mechanism of season factor is extremely complicated. I cannot provide an accurate timing for you.

The thing i vaguely know is that, when a season start, the power of the its element will gradually increase. In a few days before day 14, its element will become strongest. However, after day 14, all seasons’ element will gradually turn to “Earth”. In a few days before day 28, the “Earth” element will become strongest.

Therefore, based on that, I will draw a table like this:

LawElement of the LawSeasonElement of the SeasonRecommended timing
True Sun Refining Law(三陽三昧丙丁煉火訣)
Emotion Severing Law(太上忘情道)
Primordial Alchemy Law(九轉金丹直指)

However I have to warn you that this table is not accurate. It is a “conservative guess”quot;, so it is used at your own risk. if you want a exact and accurate timing , please investigate it by yourself or consult a professional.

Yin Yang

Yin Yang(陰陽) is a Chinese concept. Yin(陰) can imply shady. Yang(陽) can imply sunny.

For more information,please refer to the link below:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yin_and_yang

In the game,the sun has the power of Yang.When the sun is shining, the power of Yang will become strong.When the sun disappears, the power of Yin will become strong. Moreover, weather will affect the power of Yin Yang, so you should take weather into consideration.

Each Law requires different power:

Tip: Using an immortal’s protection and weather to get a better efficiency

As mentioned before, you can cost 9 incense to ask a immortal to bring a 5+ weather buff “Air of Cultivation” for 9 days and Yin Yang will be affected by raining.Therefore for some laws, you can wisely use it for better result.

During “Air of Cultivation”, you can still use miracle such as “rainmaking” Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core
to bring a rain.

For example, for Earth law, such as “Sunflower Refining Law” and “Heaven Stealing Law”, if your character starts “Core shaping” during “Foehn Wind” at about 18:30, there will be:

Around 19:00 to 20:00Around 20:00 to 5:00
during Foehn Wind, Your characters will only enjoy:
“5+” weather buff
“5+” Yin Yang buff
during Foehn Wind, Your characters will only enjoy:
“5+” weather buff
“3+” Yin Yang buff

However, if your character starts “Core Shaping” during “Air of Cultivation”+”Heavy Raining” at about 4:30, there will be:

around 5:00 to 20:00
During Air of Cultivation and raining, Your characters will enjoy:
“5+” weather buff
“5+” Yin Yang buff

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

“Air of Cultivation”+”Heavy Raining” Combo!

Therefore, develop your own strategy based on every character’s situation.

Elements of a location

This guide is almost finished,but location factors are the most important part.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Location Factors

There will be two factors that affects the efficiency of Core Shaping:

  • Qi Bonus
  • Elements

“Elements” part is easy to understand. Remember “Five Elements”(五行) right? When creating a location for Core Shaping, you should place something that contain an element that boosts the law around the location. That means, if your character is studying “Fire” Law and you should place something that contain “Wood” element near him/her.

Now you know the “Elements” part, but, before you start create a place for core shaping, these is still one thing you also need to understand,the “Qi Bonus”.

Qi Bonus: Understanding “Density of Qi” and “Gather Qi”

This is the final factor! Happy, right? Unfortunately, it is also the most complicated and IMPORTANT part.

So, what is “Qi Bonus”?

Before you understand what is “Qi Bonus”, you have to understand what is Qi (靈氣). Qi imply “Air” in Chinese. In many “Xianxia”(仙俠) stories, “Qi”(靈氣) is often imagined as “the gas that has mysterious power”. This simple description may be inaccurate, because “Qi” is profound Chinese concept.

If you are interested, you can do a research by yourself:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qigong
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neigong

Or else, just imagined Qi as “mysterious gas” is fine. I think it is enough for an English speaker to roughly understand the concept.

In the game, Qi exists in the air. Every grid in the game is given a hidden variable,”Density of Qi”(靈氣濃度). Normally you can’t see this variable unless installing a mod. In order to make it easier to understand, now I use a mod to explain.

It is the mod I use:

*It is a credit. In this guide, I will not suggest anyone to install any mod because a mod may cause compatible problem.If you use, you use at your own risk.

It is a mod written in Chinese language, the word “灵气” in the information table imply “density of Qi”.

Now you see that each grid has its own “density of Qi”. In this example, the “density of Qi” at this grid is “1419.29”.

Then, let’s watch about description of “Qi Bonus” :

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Now you see what is “Qi Bonus” right?

When you choose a location (grid) for core shaping, higher the “density of Qi” is,and higher the “Qi Bonus” will be!

Therefore, do everything you can to build a location (a grid) that has highest density of Qi for your character to shap a core.

But How?

In the game, every grid in the game is given another hidden variable,”Gather Qi”(聚靈). “Gather Qi” means the grid’s attraction for Qi. Higher the “Gather Qi” is,and higher the “density of Qi” MAY be. (I use “may” not “will”, because it is a dynamic variable)

Now we have a example:

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

In this picture, the word “聚灵” in the information table imply “Gather Qi” and the word “无” in the information table imply “none”.Therefore, the “Gather Qi” of this grid is “0”.

So, in order to increase the “density of Qi” of this grid, you should try to increase the “Gather Qi” of this grid.

Some items are given a special feature,”Gather Qi”. (Same name, but the function is different.)

I use “Spiritwood” as a example:

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

Such items can increase “Gather Qi” of the nearby grid/grids in certain distance.

So let’s try:

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

After placing a “Spiritwood” (Gather Qi:20) in a nearby grid, the “Gather Qi” of this grid has slowly increased. It takes time.

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

After 5 days, the “Gather Qi” of this grid will become about 20(may be lower,depending on the distance between the grid and the item), and this grid will has more chance to get higher “density of Qi” than before.

Therefore, what you should do is:
1.Prepare some items that has “Gather Qi” feature.
2.Choose a grid you want for core shaping
3.Place such items in the nearby grids
4.After placing, don’t move any items and wait for 5 days
5.Order your character perform “Core Shaping” in the grid you choose.

Qi Bonus:Creating a location to gather Qi

Before you are going to build up a location, you should put attention that each item has its own effective range.

For Spiritwood, its effective range of gather Qi is “4”.

Therefore, Spiritwood is supposed to increase “gather Qi” of 4 grids.you can refer to the picture

By wisely using this,you can build up your own location for your character.

You can build something like this:

Also, remember the concept of “5 Elements”. You should create a location for Qi gathering with items that promote the law that your character studies.

You may not consider the elements of the items.

I am not going to tell you how to obtain such items one by one or tell you what is the “best strategy” to place them (Because I don’t know :D). You should develop your own strategy and style.

However, please be reminded that a location for Qi gathering MAY be constituted by more than ONE elements.

For example:

Amazing Cultivation Simulator - A guide to getting your first T1 Golden Core

This is a location for “Metal” Law,but it can be constituted by “Earth” items and “Fire” items.Based on the items you have,you can place them wisely after calculation.

Tip:

The location for “Earth” Law are supposed to be constituted by many “Fire” items, so it will be extremely hot.Also The location for “Wood” Law are supposed to be constituted by many “Water” items, so it will be extremely cold.

Therefore, you may try to build both of them in one room in order to balance the temperate they create.

Conclusion

Congratulations! It is the end of this guide!

I hope you understand what I have mentioned.

Remember to the points listed below:

  • Increase the max Qi of your character
  • Make sure your character “matches” the law he/she practices
  • Adjust your character’s mind state before Core Shaping
  • Choose a perfect season and day that boosts the law he/she practices based on “Five elements” (五行)
  • Bring the weather that is suitable for Core Shaping based on Five elements (五行)
  • Find a timing that boosts his/her law according to Yin Yang (陰陽)
  • Select and create a great location that boosts the law he/she practices based on Five elements (五行) and has “high Qi density”

And have a HAPPY-CORE-SHAPING!
Goodbye!
