* BadassInANiceSuit / KickingAssInAllHerFinery: Plenty of the fashion lets players do this. Indeed, most of the non-{{Stripperiffic}} female fashion falls into the latter category instead.



* PhlebotinumOverload: [[TheEvilPrince Tyrant Prince Mushi]], Flowsilver Palace's final boss, has a battle mechanic that will cause everyone's Chi meter to instantly fill up to its maximum capacity every 30 seconds for as long as he is on the field. Players whose Chi meters are already full must "spark" (use Celestial/Demonic Eruption to consume all three Sparks and gain a measure of health, a faster attack rate for a few seconds, and a very brief invulnerability) or use some other Chi-costly skill before this happens, or this move will kill them in a single strike. (1 Spark=100 Chi)

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:The entire Morai main quest line is a clusterfuck of this nature. Not only does your arrival appear to coincide with the various fauna becoming more aggressive than the locals are used to, but little do you know that [[ShapeshiftingSeducer Chigo,]] [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent the Serpent Emperor]] has been pulling the strings the whole time so that everything you do only makes things worse. When you find the body of a murdered child, named Little Yetz, at the bottom of a lake, your attempts to identify her killer and bring him to justice [[DivideAndConquer breed discord among the Three Orders that hold power: Corona, Luminance, and Shroud]]. Those Essences of the cities in Perfect World that "Glory" called on you to bring to him so that he could "save Morai from the Wraith invasion"? Chigo, who has murdered the real Glory and now impersonates him, uses them to activate the Undying Dial on behalf of his boss, [[BigBad Jian'rain the Wraithlord]] in order to take over Perfect World and Morai alike. You must make several trips to Morai's Endless Universe to retrieve all the Essences after unwittingly handing them over. What's worse, he killed Little Yetz because [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness she was no longer useful to him]] after being the only denizen of Morai able to harvest the coveted Immortality Fruit.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AnInteriorDesignerIsYou: The Elysium expansion has introduced a Homestead system, accessible to players of at least Level 90 (before first Reawakening) and at least 35,000 Reputation (Rank 6). Players start with only a sixteenth of the available Homestead land accessible to them, and may unlock more land through the use of Elysian Charters. Operations include the ability to buy, sell, and trade varying types of decorations between players who choose different crafting masteries. These crafting masteries are leveled up through daily quests that range from simple treasure-hunting to killing dangerous monsters in both dungeons and the overworld.
** While Homesteads are mostly for the vanity factor, the practical benefits to building and leveling a Homestead include materials to craft elitist-level gear, as well as advanced skill books for each class.


Added DiffLines:

* NorthIsColdSouthIsHot: Largely averted. While the main world map does include a large frozen region in the northwest corner and a desert region near the southwest corner (though not in the very south-most part of the map), the overworld has no definite pattern as to which types of environment and climate appear where.
** One of the alternate planes which high-level players visit, called Morai, appears distinctly warmer overall than the main overworld. There is a LethalLavaLand [[ConvectionSchmonvection (per se)]] crevice, called Burning Scar, in the center of the Morai map, and much of Morai is covered with either desert, jungle, or subtropical forest, with no distinct cold region notable.
** The Primal World, which players must Reawaken in order to visit, has a cold ''East'' region, with a frozen country called Luneska in the northeast, and an underwater kingdom in the southeast borders both Luneska and a temperate southwestern map.
** Neither Lothranis (heaven) nor Momaganon (hell) show any extremes of temperature. Lothranis has an overall "always sunny over green fields of paradise" feel, while Momaganon is largely a wasteland under a twilight sky.

* [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes Villainous]] [[HeroicSecondWind Second Wind]]: Appears about half the time in Flowsilver Palace's new Judgment Mode, when the party is fighting new-final-boss [[BadassPrincess Belle Leun, the Mad Princess]]. Once Belle Leun is down to a quarter of her health, she will cry out for her husband, Tyrant Prince Mushi, to intervene on her behalf: "[[SaveThePrincess Mushi, my love! Save your princess from these intruders!]]" When Mushi re-enters the fray, he behaves exactly as he did in the previous fight (the throne room) in terms of battle mechanics, but only has a quarter of his normal HP.

* AnAdventurerIsYou: Let's count the ways; you got your run-of-the-mill warrior (Blademaster), three SquishyWizard classes (the aptly named Wizard and Cleric, the latter combined with TheMedic, as well as the psychic class), one GlassCannon (Archers), a MightyGlacier (Barbarians), a technical class (Assassins) and a combination squishy wizard/petmaster/mezzer (Venomancers, though all magic classes have some sort of buff/debuff).

** In addition, until the Eclipse expansion, players who wanted to level-up their combat skills needed to visit trainers for their respective classes. As such, there were once whole "teachers' districts" in northern and southern Archosaur, Silver Pool, Dreamweaver Port, Sanctuary, and the City of a Thousand Streams. Nowadays visiting a class trainer is not necessary to level-up most combat skills. For sentimental reasons, however, class trainers still exist in the home cities of their respective races: Blademaster and Wizard in Etherblade, Barbarian and Venomancer in the City of the Lost, Archer and Cleric in the City of the Plume, Seeker and Mystic in Tellus City, Assassin and Psychic in the City of Raging Tides, and (most recently) Duskblade and Stormbringer in Dawnglory.

* FlyingSeafoodSpecial: The default flying mount for the Untamed is a manta ray. Earthguards get goldfish and a shark with a propeller as the more expensive mounts, although both are techniclally kites.

* FiveRaces: Played with. The game's universe appears to cast Humans as the Mundane, [[PettingZooPeople Untamed]] as the Stout, [[OurElvesAreDifferent Winged Elves]] as the Fairy, and [[NatureHero Earthguard]] as the High Men. No race really fits into the "Cute" category, although the [[ApparentlyHumanMerfolk Tideborn]] seem to be a cross between High Men and Fairy, given their finesse-based fighting styles.
** The Eclipse expansion has since introduced the [[SixthRanger Nightshade]] race as a different breed of High Men. FlavorText describes them thus: "Created by the son of Pan Gu, the Reapers once guarded the Celestial Vale. Bound to the life of the Divine Child, they defended him until he was mortally wounded in battle. With the last of his strength, the Divine Child freed the Reapers from his service and sent them to Perfect World. Now known as the Nightshades, they draw upon the power of the moon to battle evil in all its forms." Nightshade melee fighters are called Duskblades and wield sabers, while casters are called Stormbringers and channel Water- and Metal-based elemental attacks through magic scythes.

* DifficultySpike: Players entering Flowsilver Palace for the first time will find a sudden, sharp upswing in the number of boss attacks and other things that can OneHitKill them if they are not careful.

** Blademasters are best equipped to survive this maneuver, as their four skill-tree branches give them the widest array of Chi-costly moves, including three debuffs and an elemental attack that cost two Sparks each.

* WeaponOfChoice: again, oddly handled; since you need certain stats to wield certain weapons you can find mages with giant hammers, or Barbarians with magic wands; however, classes won't be able to use their skills if they're not using weapons made for them.

* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Player-character gender is almost [[PurelyAestheticGender purely aesthetic]] (the Untamed race is the only one to hard-wire all its men into the warrior class of Barbarians and all its women into the mage class of Venomancers). Most of the artwork (loading screens, class-trainer NPC sprites and War Avatar illustrations), however, follows this trope, depicting physical damage dealers as male and magical damage dealers as female.
