** Celestone Fragments were once used to trade for Mirage Celestones at 25 fragments a piece. At some point, the ability to trade the fragments was removed, rendering them functionally useless. However, the item itself has remained in the game, and often appears as an additional reward from quests despite their empty value (compared to Celestones of Earth, Heaven, and Human which _can_ still be traded for Mirages), much to the [[DudeWheresMyReward irritation of many players]]. They don't even serve as VendorTrash anymore, as each fragment sells for a grand total of one coin.

*** The puppet players are also the most egregious example of TheComputerIsACheatingBastard, as they ignore the costs and cooldown times of their classes' more Chi-costly signature moves.



** Taken UpToEleven in the Uncharted Paradise for twice-reborn players. With EverythingTryingToKillYou here, you're guaranteed to die multiple times within this instance no matter how powerful you are. Best stock up on Resurrection Scrolls, especially if you don't have both a Cleric and a Mystic in your squad.



** Encountered ''very'' often in the overworld throughout the Neverfall expansion's Western Steppes.



* 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.

** 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.

Wizards come in a close second in this regard: they have three elemental skill-tree branches (Fire, Water, and Earth), each with one two-Spark-costly skill.

** Played straight during the Nation Wars [[PlayerVersusPlayer PvP]] event: the home base of the Frost Nation is located in the far north, while the Flame Nation base lies on the south-most part of the map. Light Nation and Dark Nation make their base-camps in the far west and far east, respectively.



* PortalNetwork: Perfect World proper, the Celestial Vale (starter zone) Morai, and the Primal World (and to lesser degrees Lothranis, Momaganon, and Old Heaven's Tear) each have a separate one, operated by aptly-named Teleport Masters for fees ranging from 200 to 8,000 coins per teleport, with fees increasing if one wishes to go to a location that requires multiple teleports due to the Teleport Masters' limited knowledge. Originally, to be able to access the teleport service, players had to enter a town on foot for the first time and speak to the local Teleport Master. No later than Level 30, however, players are issued a "Geographic Map" that instantly unlocks every available teleport waypoint. (Players can also buy this item from the boutique for their lower-leveled characters.) In addition, players may carry and use a few types of single-use teleportation tools:
** Teleport Incense functions in the same manner as the inherent Town Portal skill: as an EscapeRope from any overworld area or instanced dungeon to the nearest village or other Safe Zone. These take a few seconds to activate, but may be used in combat unless the enemy uses an attack that interrupts skill channeling.

* TheSavageSouth: Personified in Flame Emperor Locen, a denizen of the Advanced Endless Universe [[GoddamnedBoss particularly despised among the player-base]]. War Avatar flavor-text describes Locen thus: "The bloodthirsty South Sovereign of Morai. To him, there is no greater pleasure than in [[RapePillageAndBurn killing and pillaging]].

** [[spoiler:Appears to be played straighter in the Neverfall expansion, according to promotional materials. "The Midlands" is the main map with which players are already familiar, and the expanded map boasts a huge frozen region called the "Northern Wastes," while the "Southern Reaches" appear dangerously hot (including being home to a large active volcano).]]



* 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 active. Players whose Chi meters are already full must "spark" (use Celestial/Demonic Eruption to consume all three Sparks and gain a measure of health, greater attack power 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)

** More traditionally handled in the Genesis expansion: Seekers can only use swords (probably to prevent the standard trick of switching to fists and punching everything endgame, regardless of class) and Mystics can only use magic implements (for some reason). Also handled more traditionally in the Eclipse expansion, which limits Duskblades to sabers and Stormbringers to magic scythes.

Also handled more traditionally in When the Eclipse expansion, which Tideborn race was introduced in ''New Horizons'', it established daggers as Assassins' WeaponOfChoice, and Soulspheres as the same for Psychics. ''Eclipse'' similarly limits Duskblades to sabers and Stormbringers to magic scythes.

* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Player-character gender is almost [[PurelyAestheticGender purely aesthetic]] i.e the Untamed race alone hard-wires all its men into the warrior class (Barbarians) and all its women into the mage class (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.

** 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, class trainers existed 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. In addition, 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, the home-city class trainers remain where they are.

The "Embrace" function, which may be performed by any two opposite-sex player characters and is represented on-screen by the man involved holding the woman in a BridalCarry, allows both of the embracing PCs to gain Chi over a period of time.
* ItemCrafting: Arguably the best way to get good equipment, or you can search at the auction for items 'other' people have crafted.
