What is World of Bleach RPG?
World Of Bleach is a text-based role playing game based on the anime/manga Bleach. You set off on a journey as a human and later face the decision of either becoming a Shinigami, Death Gods who rule Soul Society or you can choose to become a Hollow, souls who roam Hueco Mundo. Fight your way through the ranks and help your race a(Shinigami or Hollow) establish it's superiority! Socialize with your friends and spar them using a uniquely strategic combat system. Hunt down your enemies and socialize with your friends and have a wonderful gaming experience!
Training is the easiest way to gain experience and level up. It is the only way to train melee skill and spirit skill. You can fight in the Desert while training, so it's a good idea to train and fighting AI's in the Desert for extra stats. There are three types of training, Normal Training, Active Training and Burst Training.
In addition to that there are three durations of training. One lasts for 10 minutes, another for 5 minutes and the last for 3 hours. Burst Training however, requires 50 Burst points. You are awarded 20 Burst Points after every completed training session. Burst Points do deplete by 1 every minute. Active Training requires you to trade Activity Points (AP) because Active Training gives far better stats than Normal Training. Additionally, there is an option to level your abilities via training as well. Training armory abilities requires 3 AP and yen/souls, while training Zanpakuto/Ressureccion abilities require 20 Burst Points, 3AP and yen/souls.
Use the 10 minute trainings when you are going to be online a while. 10 minute trainings give a lot more exp if done regularly for 3 hours than the 3 hour training. Gain some AP while you're at it so that you can do Active trainings. This is a very sublime way to gain quick experience.
Use 3 hour trainings when you know you're not going to be online for a long while. The 3 hour training, as said above gives lesser stats than 10 minute trainings done for 3 hours. But, Active 3 hour trainings are a good means of gaining experience for those hard pressed for time, or when you're about to go sleep.
Human to Student/Devouring Beast guide
WoB's unique PvP system teaches you to be strategic and wise when in battle with another player. The battlefield is an 13 x 11 grid. You can move by clicking on any square nearby. The amount of squares you can move at a time is dependent on your High Speed Movement skill.
All your abilities have a range and you need to plan how to get close enough to your opponent to use that ability. To use a ability, select the way you want to strike (Up, Down, Right, Left) and select the ability you desire to use. The squares where your ability has struck will turn blue/red corresponding to which color circle represents you in the grid.
You gain yen/souls, race points and fraccion points for killing each member of an opposing race. If you slay a member of your race, you shall be awarded yen/souls and fraccion points only.
To attack a player, you need to be in the same location as him/her. Use Search Area to see the location (e.g, 0.3), and Travel to move there. Click Search Area again to attack.
Notice: Strength, Endurance, Speed, Intelligence, Willpower are known as 'Generals'; High Speed Movement and Zanpakuto Skill both fall under the Melee/Spirit Skill caps. The following caps are using the BASE caps, some specializations will alter this cap. (Example: Agreesive Melee: Increased Melee Skill, Endurance and Strength)Human Caps
Student/Devouring Beast Caps
Squad Member/Huge Hollow Caps
Senior Squad Member/Gillian Caps
Ranked Officer/Arrancar Caps
Elite Officer/Elite Fraccion Caps
Veteran Shinigami/Privaron Espada Caps

A specialization guide written by Zyros:
When you reach level 16, regardless of which race you are, you will come to a fork in the road. It's actually a little bit more than a fork. It is the choice to end all choices. The choice you will have to make is what specialization you will pick. It is a choice that will affect the way you experience game play throughout your World of Bleach experience.
Now there are Balanced Specializations for the players that wish to use a blend of Melee and Spirit styles together. They work just like the regular specializations except they give you slightly different stat gains.
Zanpakutou/Ressureccion is a shinigami/hollow's main offensive power once they reach Arrancar or Ranking Officer. Zanpakutous/Ressurreccions can be gained once you rank up to Arrancar or Ranking Officer. You roll for a zanpakuto/ressurreccion, and you are guaranteed to get one. They will give you a variety of passive boosts and other effects which greatly aid your combative ability. Using your zanpakuto/ressurreccion requires a certain amount of stamina and spirit energy each turn. After you release your zanpakuto/ressurreccion, you shall lose that amount of stamina and spirit energy each turn. If you lack that much energy/stamina, your zanpakuto/ressurreccion shall revert to it's sealed form so use them wisely!
Miscellaneous ressureccion and zanpakutou info:
Custom Zan/Res guide
Once you reach Rank 5( Arrancar/Ranking Officer), you can find out the name of your zanpakuto/ressurreccion. There are five zanpakuto/ressurreccion ranks and the chances of rolling them is luck based with Legendary being the rarest and Lesser being the easiest to roll.
Inner World/Soul Chamber
The Inner World/Soul Chamber is accessible from your profile page. There you can see what your zanpakutou/ressurreccion's name is, it's description, rank, pool cost, effects and the moves (if any). This place also can unlock your zanpakutou/ressurreccion moves if you have reached the required stats. After unlocking an ability of your zanpakutou/ressurreccion - you are ready to unleash it on your next enemy when your zanpakutou/ressurreccion is released.
Releasing your zanpakutou/ressurreccion also gives you access to your zanpakutou/ressurreccion moves (if any). These are moves unique to your zanpakutou/ressurreccion and require unlocking before they are combat ready. The stats required for unlocking them, once again, depends on the zanpakutou/ressurreccion rank. These abilities can be used in battle when you release your zanpakuto/ressurreccion. When your zanpakuto/ressurreccion gets sealed, these moves are unusable until your zanpakutou/ressurreccion is released again.
Socials are places where, as the name suggests, you can socialize with other players. You have access to three socials, one is only for your race (Shinigami/Hollow), one is for RP conversations and the other is where both shinigamis are hollows are allowed to talk together. Make new friends or give your two cents on the topic currently in discussion, all's up to you. For each post in either social, you get 1 Activity Point.
What are Activity Points?
Commonly referred to as AP, Activity Points are gained while you are active, hence the name 'Activity Points'. You can get these Activity Points by posting in the Social, sparring another player, being active in Kyoto City, or trading yen/souls for AP.
What Do I Do With Activity Points?
Activity Points can be exchanged for souls/yen on your profile. The maximum capacity of how much Activity Points you can have is approximately double your level. The most important use of AP though, is that it can be used to enhance your training, making it 'Active Training'. These trainings give you 40% more stats and experience than a normal training would.
Shinigami Armory/Evolution is where you can purchase melee abilities, spirit abilities, and items that give a variety of boosts. The abilities and items that you have bought can be equipped by going to 'Equip' on the menu. Items either give a offensive or a defensive boost, costlier the item, better the effect.
Items You Can Purchase:
Medical Store/Regeneration is like a hospital. When your hp gets low, you can go there and pay so that your hp is increased by a certain amount. The amounts of souls/yen you need to pay are half the amount of health you gain. This is one of the three ways to replenish health along with waiting or using stamina/spirit energy.
Shinigami have the option to patrol Kyoto City and purify hollows once they reach rank 3 (Squad Member). Hollows have the option to Devour hollows or hollows. In regards to both patroling and feeding, each race has a chance to get a lucky or uber lucky feed/patrol which grants increased stat and yen/soul rewards.
When patroling kyoto city as a Shinigami, or devouring hollows as a Hollow, the user is given general stats and souls/yen as a reward. Hollows also have a nother type of feeding, human feeding, this feed only offers health regenderation as a reward.
Travel is, as the name implies, used to travel. The map is 15 x 15 and contains 225 squares (Kyoto City), 246(Hueco Mundo) 243(Soul Society) if you only count squares you can move on (You cannot move on to another barrack/squad's square). You can travel to Hueco Mundo/Soul Society or Kyoto City. Hueco Mundo is where all the hollows dwell while Soul Society is it's shinigami counterpart. Players sometimes move away from 0,0 on the grid so that they won't be easy targets to enemies. Travel is a great way to explore and hunt down your enemies. If you are a hollow you are not allowed to cross over to Soul Society. Similarly shinigamis are not allowed to cross over to Hueco Mundo. Kyoto City allows you to meet the opposite race and battle them. While in Kyoto City you can gain activity points for just staying there, but it is still very risky seeing how lots of players can attack you. In places like Kyoto, it's advisable to keep moving around the map if you aren't looking to get caught up in a battle.
The Arena/Desert is where you can fight AI's to gain yen/souls, generals and experience from winning a match in the Arena/Desert. Players tend to fight AI's rather than Patrol/Feed because it is a great way to level up their abilities. There are three levels of AI's in the arena. Easy, Normal and Hard. Keep doing the level you can do until you can move onto the next level. As you rank up, the AI's get correspondingly stronger.
The support area of the game links you directly to the administrators of the site. This can be used for a multitude of reason, such as transfer requests, game questions, appeals, bug reports, etc. Anything you'd normally have to message an admin about!
With this tool you will never have to worry about an administrator receiving your request - if you can see it in the support area, they can see it in theirs. You won't ever contact the wrong admin, the proper member will process your request as soon as possible. You won't have to worry about transfer requests being doubled up between administrators, the administrator that processes the request will immediately close it upon completion.
