Characters' stats are measured in jing (?), qi (?) and shen (?). Jing refers to health points; Qi is the energy points required to perform special moves; Shen refers to magic points. The concept of the five elements (Fire, Water, Lightning, Wind and Earth), which works in a way similar to the Wu Xing in Chinese philosophy, is also applied in the game. Each of the five protagonists have a special attribute based on one of the elements and can use special powers (xianshu) of their respective elements.
