    C - As fun as it is to be hasty, it might do Jing some good to be calmer about this stuff and figure it out the proper way. We can catch up with Yunzi later.

    C because Shaolin cares about their rules. Also I did say this equipment was costly :D

    treave, do we choose a path for us both, or do we leave Yunzi to cross however she likes and choose for ourselves? I'd rather have Yunzi cross the room with her qinggong while we slowly progress through the room if she does not have the patience for it.

    Something about taking the test in a way it is supposed to be taken strikes me as a right thing to do. If the test was designed to offer honorary Shaolin membership, it must ensure - on some level - that whoever passes it thinks in a way similar to the monks.

    You choose for yourself. If you fall behind, Yunzi will leave you and move on, victorious. As stated in the update.

    I bet there is some counter mechanism against A. If they were smart enough to block people trying to go above, then trying to use destructive force was probably accounted for too.

    The thing is that in order mode Jing should SEE the proper path easier, and after the proper path is found it will be a breeze to go through it. A seems as the LONGEST way of doing it. B is fast, but needs exceptional qinggong and balance, Jing has these but he also has a brain.

    Of course they did. They made the mannequins out of wood instead of paper.

    Ah, I just didn't know if we can veto that race idea of hers. Makes sense that we don't.

    I think C (Reikan + Order mode) can solve it quite fast.
    B will probably be hard/impossible to keep up because of our average qinggong.
    A seems viable at first but there definitely be countermeasures, and even if it works we will have to use much of our stamina reserves.

    C. Reikan + Order mode should be good enough. If we calm ourselves and focus on our senses, our Reikan gets better too. Lets see that 8 int do its work.

    So, what are the rules of the challenge? The goal on the first floor seems to be to reach the second. What about the next one? Do we need to get to the exit past the monks, or do we actually need to beat them?

    I don't quite get the idea behind the proposed race if it does not only concern this floor. Even if Yunzi crosses the room faster than we do, she'll just be entangled in the next fight.

    Or will we have different goals for each floor, and she'll just get one point over us?

    Even so, since this seems to be a qinggong test, it would be fair to admit that she is better at it and not try to prove otherwise.

    It's a race between her and us and has nothing to do with the challenge ;D

    We should have taken Bro Fu. He'd just walk through all of this, no problem.

    That part I got just fine. Is it for this floor only, or for the whole challenge?

    The rest of the fights just need you to beat the monks.

    As for Yunzi getting entangled, it depends on how long you take to finish this stage and how fast she clears the next one. She's allowed to move on to each stage without your presence.

    The race is just personal competition. As are all the monks. She'll be most pleased if she beats the Abbot alone. Of course if she does that she's considered to be the one that cleared this, not you.

    Poor Xuzhan. And he asked us to go lightly on him. :(

    We should have taken Cao'er. She would have thrown us to the other end no problem.

    I am worried about getting out of sync with Yunzi, though. I don't think we can follow her way, as even with her skill she experienced difficulties, but maybe A is a viable option.

    So much tsundere! :love:
    C, our qingong isn't on her level to properly race with her, we will have to use our other assets.
