9dragons Wiki


Every newly created character starts as a vagabond; a character that has yet to join a clan. Despite the emphasis and focus on the clans in 9Dragons, players can avoid joining a clan and remain a vagabond. However, vagabonds are far limited compared to a character who has joined a clan. One such significant limitation is what skills a vagabond can learn. Since the vagabond role was meant to serve as an introduction to the game, they are limited to learning only the basic attack and smashing skills for every weapon, in addition to the basic meditation and lightfoot skill. Previously, vagabonds were able to learn the basic sword and sabre skill of the Wu-Tang and Heavenly Demon clans respectively, as well as a few advanced skill tomes, but that is no longer possible.

Once a player joins a clan and reaches Opening Chi 1, they are given a choice of four roles or classes within the clan.


The warrior uses the clan's main weapon, and specializes in melee combat. Some of the advantages of being a warrior are the ability to inflict massive melee damage and the ability to withstand melee damage. Two of their main weaknesses however, are the inability to withstand Chi Kung damage, and the inability to heal. The warrior's penalty stat is Essence, taking 2 chi points to gain one Essence point.
