Wo Long Fallen Dynasty Marking Flag locations

Where to find every Marking Flag in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty.

Marking Flags - small banners which grant a boost to your morale - can be found throughout the missions of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty in addition to the Battle Flags, which are your checkpoints (similar to Dark Souls bonfires).

The higher your morale, the less damage you take in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty and the more easily you can intimidate enemy followers, making it easier to mop up groups of foes.

These marking flags can be found by looking for beams of white light rising into the air and are smaller than battle flags, usually off the beaten path.

This page contains all the Marking Flag locations we’ve discovered so far. Pay attention to the counter in the top right of the screen to keep track of how many you've found in each mission.
