Play Styles Introduction
Taichi Panda is Snail’s latest blockbuster mobile ARPG featuring awesome graphics and fast-paced combat.
Both PvP and PvE are available.
The main PvE feature is the Campaign. Each chapter contains several instances and bosses. Completing an instance gets you a performance rating indicated by the received number of stars. Getting a 3-star rating on an instance yields the best rewards. Getting 27 stars on a chapter will allow you to get a special reward exclusive to that chapter.
Each boss fight has a time limit. The quicker you beat the boss, the better your star rating.
Completing an instance costs Constitution, but challenging Gold and Survival instances doesn’t. Use this to your advantage. Gold and Survival instances—where you loot Siderite—are available in the first couple chapters.
Once you’ve completed an instance, you can collect the rewards from that instance without running through it again via the Auto-loot function. Auto-loot costs Constitution, but may also yield equipment shards.
Fortitude offers the following five play styles:
- Pickpocketing allows you to snatch Siderite, Refinement Stones and Runes from other players.
- Arena winners get Reputation Coins that can be redeemed for valuable items.
- Battlefield matchmaking is for Three-on-Three matches or engagement between two teams of players (Can be random or friends. In-game voice chat is available). Runs from noon to 1:30 p.m. as well as from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Fight on the Battlefield and win amazing rewards!
- Team Instances. Form a team to take out bosses not fit for solo. Like on the Battlefield, you can form a team of random players or invite your friends. This is a great source of loot. Plus the currency received can be spent at the Warrior Store.
- PvP is where you do standard one-on-one battles against worthy online opponents. Weekly top players will be rewarded with Diamonds and PvP Tokens. (PvP points reset monthly.)
Taichi Panda Novice Tips
There are three PvE instance modes available: Manual, Semi-auto and Auto-loot.
Getting a 3-star rating on a level gets you the best rewards including Chests that randomly contain Diamonds, Star Runes and Refinement Stones.
You can increase your combo damage by trying different combinations and figuring out the best ones.
Dash skills when cast at the right time and position can be used to run away from powerful boss attacks.
Breaking the boss’s parry stuns the boss, leaving it extremely vulnerable to attack.
Kiting is an important strategy to learn.
All Bosses have Defense Bars. Bosses are buffed with Super Armor when their Defense Bar is full. Any player's normal attacks can cause damage to the Boss's Defense Bar. When its Defense Bar reaches zero, the Boss's parry will be broken.
Dodging is a fundamental skill in Taichi Panda. Beginners may need to pay attention to the Attack Alerts when fighting bosses and figure out the best time to Dodge.
Every-harder bosses means that some players may find themselves stuck at times, but there’s no cause for concern. There’s plenty of ways in which a player may increase their power and overcome hard obstacles.
1. Only normal attacks deplete a boss’s Defense bar and restore your HP (When the yellow bar reaches zero, the boss will get knocked into the air and cannot be attacked). It’s best to break the boss's parry with normal attacks first, and then use your more powerful skills when he’s stunned.
2. For enemies with a shield, attack them from the rear instead of head on.
3. After chapter 4, auto-combat becomes much less effective.
Which class is the best? That depends on your play style.
The warrior deals a wide range of damage. With two teleport skills, the warrior does a great job in both attacking and defending. The key to victory is to be wary of an enemy’s ranged attacks and keeping a close eye on their positioning.
The Panda is known for its quick close-quarters combat. An effective strategy with the Panda is to force the enemy into a corner and give them no room to escape.
The Treasure Hunter is the only class that can use ranged attacks and levitate targets. However, the Treasure Hunter's skills are difficult to master and her HP is comparatively low. Her agility is an asset when under pressure.
Nine things to do daily
1. Claim your gift packs upon logging in.
2. Use Constitution and Fortitude first. Once you’re out, these are easy to replenish by playing instances and pickpocketing.
3. Collect Experience Runes and Refinement Stones.
5. Group Instances – they’re the easiest way to get orange equipment.
6. Battlefields – they’re the best way to collect items needed to increase the power of your armor and pets.
7. Gold levels – if you run out of gold, there’s no better way to refill your pockets.
8. Elite Instances – like group instances, they’re a good way to collect orange equipment.
9. Buy and sell items on the Market
The Ice Phoenix can freeze targets in battle. His biggest weakness, however, is his low HP.
The Paladin can draw enemies close and stun them.
His advantage is his high HP - over 110,000 HP once upgraded to orange quality. His weakness is his low damage output. His Taunt skill is quite valuable in group instances. He also has a 5-second taunt.
The Pyrotaur cannot deal very high damage, but its HP is very high. Later in the game, the pets with high HP are the ones that have the best chance of surviving long enough to reach the boss. The Pyrotaur's stun ability is its most useful skill. When players are playing group instances or fighting against Bosses, the Pyrotaur’s 3-second stun will be invaluable.
Borik’s skill Smash deals lots of damage and its cooldown is only five seconds. As long as players take a pet with a stun ability as well, they will be able to deal tremendous damage to the enemy.
Boxer is one of the best pets in the game and since players can get a lot of Soulstones for free at the beginning of their journey, Boxer is easy to upgrade early on. Once Boxer is upgraded to orange quality, its HP is 77,000 and it can deal as much as 30,000 damage. Boxer also has a silence skill and a recovery skill.
How to Improve Might

Get stronger fast
Solo levels need to be completed within two minutes to get a 3-star rating. With a 3-star rating, you can Auto-loot the level 5 times. From Auto-loot, you can get experience and drops. Note that group instances don't have Auto-loot.
In Pickpocketing, you can spend Fortitude to steal the items you want from other players. You can not only seize shards but also experience and chances to flip a card.
You will restore a few Constitution and Fortitude every eight minutes. You can buy Constitution Pills and Fortitude Pills on the Market. When flipping cards, you may get rare items, such as Gold Rune Shards, shards of high-quality items, Constitution Pills and Fortitude Pills. Chests and Daily Offering will also provide Fortitude Pills and Constitution Pills. Please note that the Experience you gain is determined by your level compared to the level of the instances you complete. If you cannot pass an instance, upgrade your level and equipment and then try again.
Taichi Panda, Glorious Warrior and Treasure Hunter are available now in Taichi Panda. Taichi Panda and the Glorious Warrior are good at melee attacks, while the Treasure Hunter is good at ranged attacks. You can create all these three characters in an account. Select what you like.
Pets are important when you challenge instances. You will get your first pet from an instance early on. Later on, this pet will be too weak to be of much use, so use shards and open treasure chests to get a better pet.
Recommended pets: Boxer, Pet, Sun Wukong, Borik and Firewalker.
New Server Daily Gift Pack offers Boxer Soulstones daily, so be sure to log in every day.
There are Normal, Elite, Gold and Survival Instances in the game. When you complete the normal instances, elite, gold and survival ones will be unlocked.
You have to spend Constitution to join an instance. Once you satisfy an instance’s Auto-loot star requirement, you can Auto-loot that instance.
Try your best to gain three stars on the instances, so that you can receive the Pet's Challenge Chest.
From time to time, random buffs will appear in instances. Buff yourself with them before the monsters spawn.
Spending diamonds on Epic Treasure is a great way to get good purple and orange equipment that will help you in the early stages of the game. You can also join battles to get equipment. Blue and green equipment is easy to find, but purple and orange are rarer.
The first five instances of the game belong to the Prelude. Once you complete the Prelude, you will be able to take on a wider variety of instances, including Gold and Survival levels.
In order to get a 3-star rating, you need to complete the instance as quickly as possible.
Open Treasure Chests!
Use Gold or Diamonds to open treasure chests. When you open an Epic chest, you will get rare items and Soulstones. Periodically, you will be able to open treasure chests for free. If you get orange equipment early on, it’s best to fortify it as much as you can. High-quality orange armor will last you a while, so take good care of it. Keep collecting diamonds by completing plot quests.
Level and equipment
When you complete chapter 1, you are at level 10 or higher. Chapter 2 cannot be unlocked until you reach level 15. Use Pickpocketing to get Refinement Stones. Join the Arena to win a better ranking. When you reach a certain ranking, you will get diamonds for free. Then use the Diamonds to open treasure chests or purchase items. Powerful players will have four or more pieces of orange equipment. When you reach level 15, the Demon Realm team instance will be unlocked. Gather a team with some high-level players to challenge it several times to get some good items.
