Age of Wulin allows you to summon offline friends for combat assistance

    
8

Do you have a good buddy you wish could play with you all the time, even when she’s sleeping, eating, or at work? In Age of Wulin, now you can with the game’s new partner system. Through this, players can summon a friend’s character for assistance in combat as long as the player’s charisma holds up.

The partner system is but one of the additions that came in yesterday’s Blood & Flowers content update. The patch introduced the Lingxiao City battleground, which is far more than a simple PvP brawl. Instead, players will have to undertake several creative missions to take over the stronghold.

Blood & Flowers also allows male characters to compete to become the Flower Prince and opened up a time-gated zone called the Island of Delight. The official site has the rundown of all of the patch notes for your perusal.

Like this feature – provided the offline character gets XP.
City of Heroes had a feature where you could bind one of your characters to a friend’s character and if either got XP while the other was offline then the offline player would get XP. Was great in that it removed the issue of out leveling your friend. I remember logging in once to find I’d gone from 10ish to 50 in a couple of days.

Basically an excuse to buy another account. Interesting mechanic and would love to see it expanded in terms of roleplay.

That actually sounds like a pretty interesting mechanic.  I would hope the offline player would get some experience out of it too.  Could be a good way for people who don’t get much time to play together to remain close levelwise.
