    By Leo Jiang2016-03-22 00:00:00


    Hongmoon Secret Technique can make inner strength practice after reaching class level 45. Now Hongmoon level cap is 5 in Blade and Soul, but it will be increased to cap level 10 on 23 March 2016. You can get more attribute addition, however there is no vitality restriction in Hongmoon Secret Technique. We can imagine that one character who is level 45 and Hongmoon 5 is higher than another one who is only level 45 and Hongmoon 0, so Hongmoon power leveling is very important in Blade and Soul. Practicing B&S Hongmoon Secret Technique is the precondition for character boosting. You can refer to the information below if you want to know more about it.


    HongMoon Secret Technique is the final tier skill for each branch.  It requires players to complete some special conditions in order to unlock the skills. Unlike other skills, most of them also require more than 1 SP to learn. The methods to unlock each HongMoon skills for Blade & Soul CN are showed here. The method to obtain these skills might be different for KR, JP, TW, NA, EU servers.
