The mount will take you quickly where ever the use wants to go. The mount will have a slot in your inventory and is threated as “item”.
How to get them?
The mounts are acquired through quests, by taming a certain monster, as a RvR reward or by purchasing in the store. (Does not tell if tamed monsters are tradable)
“Mount” – Skills
The Skillbar for mounts is a short cut for your mount skills. It will show up once you mounted your desired companion. Mounting uses Energy. If you have zero energy you cannot use your mount. (Don’t mistake energy with the class specific resources). The UI will change according to the image below.

There are many ways to travel around the vast continent of Bless. There are mounts, vehicles to move between capitals /bases and much more.
Moving between cities
You can travel to certain NPCs which are shown on the interactive map. (please visit the official guide and scroll down)
[I’m unsure about this one]: Depending on your level some areas may not be available yet!
Translation of the Interactive Map Options
If you want to see the area, just click on the name at the list below the world map.

Some monsters on the field can be tamed and made into a mount. If the monster is successfully tamed it will be stored in your inventory and can be summoned/mounted. Some creature have different/unique skills which make the world of Bless even more fun. Be sure to collect as much as possible (haha… gotta catch them all, eh ^^)
In order to tame monsters you have to purchase a taming scroll. Taming scrolls can have different quality.
[Note:] I’m not sure about the qualities. It seems we have basic, good and best quality scroll from the merchant. But additional qualities like unique scrolls, artisan scrolls, etc. are also mentioned. I guess there will be dropped scrolls also. Also I don’t know if certain monsters need to be tamed with specific scrolls. For example a very rare boss requires unique and above quality. All these details aren’t mentioned.
You purchase a taming scroll first. After that move to the area were the monster you want to tame appeared. If you found your monster use the scroll.
If you get a success you will find the monster in your inventory (short cut I). If you fail the scroll gets consumed anyway.

Tactics are a combination of available skills/techniques/technologies, etc. according to the combat situation.
Depending on the combination and active core technology you will be able to experience a variety of roles. If you adjust the appropriate technology to the situation (Solo, Party, PvP) your character can be more effective in the combat
Press “K” to open the Tactics Window.
Available skills will be shown after registering the technology. The window shows the four major techs. You can build your own tactic by choosing skills from
- using tech.
- core tech. (Depending on the core technology some skills have different effects. Also depending on the core tech. only selected skills are available)
- applied tech. (like the stigma system in Aion)
- reaction tech.
You can save your build as a tactic (progress get’s auto saved). You can also switch between tactics by press crtl+<number> or by selecting the tactic in the tactics window.It is recommended to change the tactic before the fight.
[note:] I guess (not sure) switching between tactics in combat is not possible.
[Note 2]: the word technology is equivalent with technique or skills here. It’s just that the word by word translation would suggest technology over anything else. But I guess even if I wrote technology I guess you guys would understand that skills are meant.
Tactics are basically ingame skill builders where you can save your favorite builds and roles and then you can easily switch between them.
You can for example register a Priest Build as Main Healer and a Build for an Emergency Healer+DD abilities and then as a third the Paladin spec for Main Tanking or so.
official guide: http://bless.pmang.com/?mKey=1&sKey=2#guide/detail/232
You can see the class skills by accessing the technology/technique list. You can open it via Icon on the Menu or by pressing “L”
In the technology/technique/skills/disciplines/etc. list there are 5 tabs:
- General Techniques (mostly passives I think)
- Core Techniques (each class has 3 core abilities. Your character will be greatly influenced by your choice. For example Paladin has the three roles depending on the core ability:
- [Priest] – Healer
- [Judge] – Defensive DD
- [Paladin] – Defensive Tank
- Using Techniques (your active skills)
- Applied Techniques (like the stigma system in Aion, they are additional skills)
- Reaction Techniques (combo skills when a certain situation is met, for example “Enemy is knockdown-ed – then you may use the fitting reaction skill)
If you do not meet the level conditions of a technique it is display with a padlock icon. If you achieve the level condition but didn’t learn the skill yet it will be display as a gray icon.
[The following example is the Guardian Class]
Are central to the configuration you want to choose. Only 1 core tech per tactic can be registered.
When mounted it directly applies the skill to the list of available skills.
Are basically combo skills. Once a certain criteria is met you can execute them. For example successful knockdown on a target mean you can execute a reaction skill to that knockdown
With all these skills you can choose your desired Tactic or Build – as previously mentioned.
Class specific resources
I think it is better to upload all skills as a google sheet. Why? Because editing in a forum is a pain in the ass and I’m lazy. Also with that I can easily access them and complete them and polish them.
Anyway here is the link: Bless Online CBT2 skills
A very informative video by rendermax:

PvP – RvR – Territorial System and Sieges
official guide: http://bless.pmang.com/?mKey=1&sKey=2#guide/detail/156
RvR or Realm vs. Realm defines Bless and consists of
- faction vs faction
- inner faction sieges
- political contracts, agreements, etc.
and define the world of Bless.
You and your guild fight through the battlefields, conquer strongholds, castles and make it to the top-spot of the city. With each honor point gained in the various PvP actions your guild grows and will be able to participate in faction politics such as government contracts.
Guild Masters of a guild which were able to claim victory in a capital city can then claim it and rule over the territory.
Flow of RvR content
Bless includes guild vs guild battles and faction vs. faction battles.
Each territory is linked to other territories which can also be raided to provide a very narrow pvp environment. The conflict regarding the ownership of the major cities within the faction but also from the outside of the faction increases the tension.
Governors who are responsible to defend the nation, the guilds which are always on the hunt (?) and all factions players have to think ahead and there is also betrayal.
official guide: http://bless.pmang.com/?mKey=1&sKey=2#guide/detail/157
Honor points are a secondary currency, obtained for participating in PvP actions. PvP actions can be territory sieges for example. Honor is gained depending on the contribution on the battlefield (kill / death ratio). Territorial sieges are timed and honor will be added at the end of the siege.
When you acquire honor after joining a guild, the guild honor points also increase and with that the influence of the guild. After a certain amount of honor points, the Guild Master of a worthy guild (enough honor points) will be able to take part in the political actions such as territory governing, etc.
If you kill players from the opposing faction you will obtain honor, depending on the level and gear level between both players and the kill/death count of the individual player. In addition titles may be obtained depending on your contribution on the battle.
When you participate in the various PvP actions you earn honor. You can check your current honor points by pressing I (inventory shortcut) and look at your currency points. These can be spend on various items and most important combat specific equipment (I guess they mean PvP equipment)
You can spend your earned honor points at honor traders in the main cities.
Available list of equipment:
- Guardian – Eternal Winter Set
- Berserker – Wrathful/Furious Winter Set
- Paladin – Divine Winter Set
- Ranger – Winter Wind/Blizzard Set
