What Are The Divine Beast?
Divine Beasts in Wo Long Fallen Dynasty are holy/mythical beings based on creatures from Chinese mythology. They can give your character a huge boost in power and can quite instantaneously turn the tide of battle in your favor. Fans of Team Ninja’s previous title- Nioh, will be familiar with this mechanic as it is very similar to Guardian Spirits.
There are about ten Divine Beasts in Wo Long Fallen Dynasty.
These Divine Beasts are further divided into five categories.
- Earth Phase Divine Beasts.
- Fire Phase Divine Beasts
- Metal Phase Divine Beasts
- Water Phase Divine Beasts
- Wood Phase Divine Beasts
Earth Phase Divine Beast
The Earth is one of the five virtues in the Wo Long Fallen Dynasty, which specializes in increasing one’s weight limit and the amount of spirit gained while deflecting an attack. But before we get too sidetracked, the two Divine Beasts belonging to the Earth category are.
According to the description, Qilin is said to live for 2000 years, and its appearance is a mixture of a horse, a dear, and an ox. It is the king of all creatures with fur. The Qilin Divine Spirit can be found in the second main mission named- Two Chivalrous Heroes.
In the mission, players will obtain the Qilin automatically after defeating Zhu Yan. And in order to further upgrade this Divine Spirit, players will need to complete the Unparalleled Spear mission.
The Qilin has three abilities, two of which are active abilities named Qilin Earthquake and Qilin Resonation. The third ability is a set of passive abilities named the Divine’s Beast Favors.
The Qilin Earthquake
As stated before, the Qilin Earthquake is one of the active abilities of this Divine Spirit. It summons the spirit and forms multiple stone pillars in front of you. Once you have increased the Morale Rank to 10 or above, then the number of stone pillars will also increase.
The Qilin Resonation
The Qilin Resonation ability will infuse your weapon with Stone damage. It is an extremely useful ability to have if the tough enemy you are struggling with is weak to stone-based damage. It also increases your defense against HP-based damage and spirit recovery.
The Divine Beast Favor
The Qilin offers four favors for the player.
- Earth Phase Spell Spirit Consumption
- Guard Spirit Consumption
- Damage Taken in Perfect Condition
- Restore HP Upon Deflecting Critical Below.
The Earth Phase Spell Spirit Consumption reduces the spirits consumption of Earth Phase Spells by 3-6%.
The Guardian Spirit Consumption favor reduces the Spirit’s consumption of guarding by 3.2%.
Damage received by the players at full health will be reduced by 3.8% with Damage Taken in Perfect Condition favor.
Whenever you deflect a critical blow, your health will be restored by +36 with Restore HP Upon Deflecting Critical Blow favor. For clarification, players will only obtain the fourth passive ability after upgrading the Divine Spirit.
Due to its appearance and its description, the Divine Spirit- Yinglong is considered the true form of a dragon. It can be obtained and upgraded after completing the Crouching Dragon Roar mission.
Just like the Qilin, the Yinglong also has three abilities; two active abilities, named the Divine Ascension and the Yinlong Resonation, and a set of passive abilities, named the Divine Beast’s Favor.
The Divine Ascension ability is an extremely useful ability to have while you are facing bosses, as this ability will automatically revive you if you die while your Divine Beast gauge is full. You never know when you may slip up and die at the near end of the battle. If you were to summon the Yinglong, then it would perform a sweeping attack, and your damage would also increase if your Morale Rank is above 9.
Similar to the Qilin, the Yinglong Resonation will also infuse your weapon with stone damage while increasing your defense and the amount of spirit gained from attacks. Again, be sure to use this against enemies weak to stone-based damage.
Divine Beast’s Favor
The Divine Beast favors that players will acquire while using the Yinglong are.
- Damage Dealt in Perfect Condition
- Spirit Gain from Deflecting
- Equipment Drop Rate

The amount of spirit you will gain while deflecting an attack will be increased by +4% with the Spirit gained from Deflecting favor.
In case you want to get better loot after defeating an enemy, then the Equipment Drop Rate favor has got your back, as it will increase the equipment drop rate.
Finally, the Damage Reduction Upon Deflecting a Critical Blow favor will apply the Damage Reduction buff on your character after you successfully deflect a Critical Blow.
Fire Phase Divine Beast
The Fire Virtue affects the amount of spirit gained while deflecting an attack and the equipment weight limit. The Divine Spirits that belong in this category are the.

Just like every other Divine Spirit listed above, the Xiezhi has three abilities, out of which two are active, and one is passive. Their names are Diestic Exorcism, Xiezhi Resonation, and the Divine Beast’s Favor.
The Diestic Exorcism ability will summon the Divine Spirit-Xeizhi to fight alongside you for a certain period of time, which can be extended when your Morale Rank with the spirit has exceeded level 9.
The Xiezhi Resonation ability will infuse your weapon with fire damage. Fantastic ability to utilize if your opponent is weak to fire; not that great if your opponent specializes against it. Aside from infusion, it also increases your damage and spirit recovery.

According to the description, Zhuque is one of the Four Gods and the guardian of the south. This Divine Spirit can be obtained after completing the Fall of the Corrupted Eunuch mission and can be further upgraded after completing the War’s Flames Blaze Fiercely mission.
The three abilities of the Zhuque are the Zhuque’s Scorch, Zhuque Resonation, and the Divine Beast favor, out of which two are active abilities, and one is a passive ability.
The Zhuque Scorch ability will set the entire area in flames, turning it into a literal hell for your enemies. It is an incredibly useful technique if you are taking on hordes of enemies at a time. The Divine Spirit will also perform an additional attack if your Morale Rank is above 9.
The Zhuque Resonation will infuse your weapon with fire damage, and it will increase your damage as well while also decreasing the time it takes you to inflict ailments on your enemies.
The four Divine Beast’s favors are the

The Baihu’s Carnage ability will summon the Baihu and allow him to fight side by side with you for a specific amount of time. The amount of time in which the Baihu can fight alongside you will increase if your Morale Rank is above 9.
In case you were lacking in Toxin based damage, then the Baihu Resonation ability has got your back, as it will infuse your weapon with toxin damage. It will also increase the amount of spirit you gain from attacks and reduce the amount of time it takes for your opponent to get inflicted by an ailment.
