Steps is a group of skills that provide a bonus to attack rate, dodge and movement speed (Greater clan steps only).

When activated, Steps will continuously use Vital Energy.


Depending on the clan, there are 3 or 4 Steps skills available.

In order of increasing effect:

  1. Basic clan steps (Wu Tang and Heavenly Demon do not have basic steps)
  2. Basic role steps (e.g. Storm Demon Steps)
  3. Greater role steps (e.g. Greater Storm Demon Steps)
  4. Advanced clan steps (e.g. World-shaking Steps)

The higher the number above, the greater the bonus given by that particular skill. Advanced clan steps are an exception to this rule, as the skill has the same bonus effect as Greater role steps, but uses less Vital Energy when active. It also increases movement speed by 2% at Cheng 10.
