Introduction

Hailing from the war-torn lands of the Far East, the secret arts of the ninja were born of necessity, and have since given rise to a unique breed of highly-trained combatants.

Able to manipulate the vital energies of the land, the air, and living beings, they manifest their power through the weaving of signs, unleashing a wide array of attacks against their foes. Master the arts of the ninja and learn to bend the tide of battle to your will.

Ninjutsu activation
As stated above, Ninjutsu actions are activated by first using a sequence of one to three Mudras and then using  Ninjutsu. For new Ninjas, memorizing the correct Mudra sequences is extremely important. If you find it difficult to remember the correct Mudra sequences, you could try using a mnemonic device to assist you. For example, thinking of the Mudras  Ten,  Chi and  Jin as blue, red and yellow, or as one, two and three could be useful. It is generally discouraged to use macros to activate your Ninjutsu abilities because Mudras can be cast every 0.5 seconds, while the macro wait command only works in increments of 1.0 seconds. Eventually, using Mudra combinations will be second nature.
