Er Mei is actually written out as “Emei”, but I thought I should type it as 2 words to reflect the correct real-world spoken pitch. Located on top of Mount Er Mei which is an actual place in China, the clan in Louis Cha’s martial novels was founded by Guo Xiang, the little girl who adored Yang Guo in Return of the Condor Heroes. Compared to Shaolin and Wudang, I find the location much, much bigger.
Starting off, players from this clan will be using 1-handed daggers. Similar to Wudang using dual swords from the beginning, the choice of weapon is no doubt, weird. But what I had in mind was that the developers did not want players to immediately jump into the various famous single-sword skill sets.
