Combat Training

Combat Training

While you should be able to get more style points in my mod, than in vanilla Jade Empire, it's never enough, is it? Several merchants in the Empire will provide Combat Training in exchange for your hard-earned Silver. Training grants you additional style points.

There are three different grades of Combat Training: Simple, Regular and Advanced. Rumour has it, though, that there may also be a fourth grade, but no ordinary human being would be able to offer such a thing...

Combat Training

To the uninitiated, combat - be it martial, armed or magic - looks like nothing more than a way to defend oneselves. If that were all there is to it, it would be possible to study and practice combat in combat alone. But at its highest aspiration, combat is also a path to knowledge and the expression of beauty. It is a science and an art form. The science of combat requires intense study of the philosophy, the traditions and the history of the different combat styles. The goal is to not only perform the movements and stances, but to understand their meaning. The art of combat requires intense meditation. The goal is to merge spirit and body and become one with the movements and stances. Neither the science of combat, nor the art of combat can be learned in combat.

Wine

Wine

This is the wine you need to drink to fight in Drunken Master style. Buying this from a merchant or from the original Drunken Master himself, will allow you to get drunk when combat starts the next time.

In previous versions of my mod this used to be a rare item. Not anymore. There should always be at least one merchant in the area who sells wine. Not only that, those merchants carry an infinite supply now. They won't sell it to you before Hou has taught you the Drunken Master style, though

Wine

initiates Drunken Master in the next combat This is not a magic potion. It really *is* wine. Exactly as it says on the label. It's relatively good wine, too. Well, actually, it's a very fine drop, indeed. A bit of a shame to waste it on the Drunken Master style, really! This wine would be perfect for a nice romantic evening... with some good food... some candles and... But to use the Drunken Master style, you have to get drunk. You surely could get drunk a whole lot cheaper than this, but if a master of all styles has gotta get drunk, he better do so in style! Less headaches, too!

Healing Items

These items regenerate your health over time. They can only be bought in stores. There are, however, quite a few stores who sell them. You can only buy and use one of these items at a time. Stores who sell these items, carry an infinite supply.

Reprieve

Reprieve

Restores one point of Health, Chi and Focus every three seconds over a long period of time. Buying regeneration before a difficult battle might be a good idea...

Reprieve can be bought from many merchants: Smiling Mountain, Darting Lynx, Henpecked Hou, Spear Catches Leaf, Dr. An, Songtao/Chandler Ling, Acolyte Trainer Guang and Zin Bu.

Cure

Cure

Restores Health, Chi and Focus over a long period of time. The regeneration rate of "Cure" is slighty bigger than that of "Reprieve". Buying regeneration before a difficult battle might be a good idea...

On Student, Master and GrandMaster difficulty Cure can be bought from Abbot Song. On JadeMaster difficulty all merchants who would sell Reprieve will sell Cure instead and Abbot Song will sell Heal.

Heal

Heal

Restores Health, Chi and Focus over a long period of time. The regeneration rate of "Heal" is noticeably bigger than that of "Cure". Buying regeneration before a difficult battle might be a good idea...

Heal can be bought from Abbot Song, but only on JadeMaster difficulty.

stone tablets

Stone Tablet

These tablets are part of a small quest that introduces the Lost + Found Styles to the game world.

Undecipherable Stone Tablet

You can't figure out the text, but the illustrations show martial artists whose movements show an astonishing resemblance to the Heavenly Wave. Despite all the similiarities the style seems to be a different one though. The numerous depictions of insects - apparently mantisses - don't do much to clarify things...

Found in the swamp cave after defeating Gao The Lesser

Undecipherable Stone Tablet

The meaning of these runes is unknown to you, but you can clearly recognize the numbers among the letters. Actually just a single number: the Seven. In a series of diverse illustrations, that are probably only vaguely related to the text, the author emphasized how important the Seven of all numbers was to him. He appears to attribute a special kind of power to it. The number itself means nothing to you, but the author's fervor seems quite familiar. This must be the description of a Martial Arts style...

Found in the old quarry in Tien's Landing after defeating Strangler Jizu

Undecipherable Stone Tablet

You cannot decipher the text on this tablet, but the illustrations of hurricaines, that accompany the text, pique your interest. The artist did his best to document the destructive power of the centrifugal forces in graphic detail, but also the absolute calm in the center. There's no obvious link between these images and combat as you know it, but something tells you, that their purpose is to explain a Martial Arts style...

Found in the spirit cave after the bandit attack on the beach

Undecipherable Stone Tablet

Next to the unreadable text, you see depictions of trees.. willow trees apparently. Willow trees that bend and twist in the storms and whose twigs lash out at those foolish enough to come close. In the lower right corner you see an image of a sword and a dagger. How these weapons might be linked to the willows, remains mysterious...

Found in the cannibal caves
