Try doing the following: buy two Stanching Grasses from Water city nurse and put them into wuxing oven at random spots. Right click one of them to make it the main element. Now click Refine. You combined two Stanching Grasses and got a Wuxinged Drug with +45HP instead of +30HP. That’s basically how wuxing works. The only thing is that better stuff requires higher levels/cultivation.
Now let’s get to the real thing. If you have below 1519 wuxing creativity, you can increase armor’s def by wuxing -5k poisons to it. How to make them? Go to the Blacksmith and open Darts section. Buy 7 prickers. Now go to the doctor and buy Arsenic. Open Wuxing oven. You’ll need to use the picture i posted above now. Put Arsenic at slot 12 and make it main item with right click. Now put a pricker into slot 9. Refine it and repeat it(Using same wuxinged poison) with other prickers you brought too. Final result should be -5k poison.
Go and buy a cheapest armor from Water city blacksmith. Place it at slot 11 and the -5k poison you made at slot 12. Refine. Armor defense should go up to 168 now. You can repeat these steps over and over again until it has 3168 defense. This is maximum you can increase with -5k poisons only. You can do the same things with cheapest sword, headwear, belt, shoes. 3168 def armor is a limit armor(means you cant wux it further). Shoes have 3168 dex and sword 3168 atk. Belt has 4251 mana and headwear 4251 life. That’s what limits are about.
