Divine Beasts are powerful abilities in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty that have the potential to shift the outcome of a challenging battle completely. Players can gain significant advantages in offensive and defensive capabilities using these creatures but possessing a Divine Beast provides passive bonuses to the wielder that can further enhance their abilities in combat.
Players do not start with a Divine Beast nor have the option to choose one at the beginning of the game. Unlocking a Divine Beast is a significant achievement in the game, and learning how to use it effectively in challenging battles can be difficult. Even after advancing far into the round, players may still have questions about obtaining and utilizing these powerful creatures to their maximum potential.
The Divine Beasts are one of the five elements corresponding to the player’s stats. While it is not mandatory, selecting a Divine Beast that aligns with the player’s build in terms of elemental affinity can be advantageous.
Divine Beasts are one of the game’s most intriguing mechanics. These powerful creatures can be called upon to assist players in battles against overwhelming enemy forces or tough bosses. Knowing when to summon a Divine Beast is crucial, as they cannot be used constantly. Therefore, this guide will instruct how to call these beasts to aid players in their quest effectively.
To unlock a Divine Beast in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, players must defeat the first boss in Stage 2, which is a relatively easy task as the boss only has one phase and can be attacked from behind while the ally distracts it.
Once defeated, a cutscene will play, and the player will obtain the power of a Divine Beast.
To use the Divine Beast, the player must go to a Battle Flag and select the “Set Divine Beast” option. However, initially, players will only have one Divine Beast to choose from, and they can only use it once the gauge is full. Although the first Divine Beast is stolen shortly after obtaining it, players can collect more gradually and become more powerful.
Utilizing Divine Beasts is crucial to progress through the game, and players can change their equipped Divine Beast at any Battle Flag by selecting the Battle Preparations menu and choosing the “Set Divine Beast” option.
This will allow them to switch to a different Divine Beast that they have unlocked, providing new passive benefits and abilities for combat situations.
Once a Divine Beast has been unlocked in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, the player can summon it in combat by pressing Triangle + Circle on PlayStation or the equivalent button combination on other platforms.
Each Divine Beast in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty has a unique ability that can be incredibly useful in specific situations. The Divine Beast unleashes its power when summoned, damaging all nearby enemies. To summon a Divine Beast, the player must fill up the Divine Beast Gauge by attacking enemies and deflecting their attacks. The player can unleash the Divine Beast’s power as the gauge fills up.
In addition to regular summoning, players can use the Divine Beast Resonation ability to summon a Divine Beast that damages enemies and boosts the player and their allies’ damage output.
This ability is beneficial in combat situations where the player must quickly clear out a group of enemies. Each Divine Beast has a unique Resonation ability, offering different advantages in different combat scenarios.
Players also passively benefit from their Divine Beasts, even if they don’t use their ultimate ability in combat.
These passive benefits are similar to the five virtues and vary in importance. Players should head to a Battle Flag location and go to the Battle Preparation menu to learn more about a newly unlocked Divine Beast.
Here, they can read about three things: the passive benefits of the Divine Beast, what it does when summoned, and its Resonation ability.
Each Divine Beast will have unique abilities and Resonation effects. Still, generally, they will all attack and provide a beneficial effect when summoned, while Resonation abilities will offer a solid buff to the player and their allies.
