Joining The Class: You can either join at Mt. Wu Tang by speaking to the Taoist Advisor Master Zhang, or in Da Li by speaking to the Taoist Guide (just north of Master Zhao).
Note that after you join the class you can introduce others to the class. You must be in a team with the applicant, go to Da Li and introduce him through the Taoist Guide. You earn 20 Class Contribution that way.
