Getting Leila Vergerius is as simple as connecting your Perfect World account to Facebook and selecting your Leila reward package. Connecting your Facebook account is easy and secure; additionally, you’ll be eligible for new rewards every day. While you can only claim one <strong><a href="http://rustyhearts.perfectworld.com/facebook">Facebook Connect</a></strong> reward, you can repeat the steps daily for a new reward. Want 3 Leilas? Simply visit the <strong><a href="http://rustyhearts.perfectworld.com/facebook">Facebook Connect </a></strong>page each day and select your new Leila as many times as you would like (or can).

Little is known about Meilin Chen, but before she was wiping the sewers with Skeletons and Hakens she was best known for her masterful Kung Fu abilities. Meilin’s grace and beauty are only surpassed by her strength, speed and agility. Her poise is unrivaled as she is rarely fazed and can endure even the most brutal attacks by her foes. As a disciplined Kung Fu artist she is constantly in an attack stance with one foot up, ready to kick and inflict massive damage. Her nomadic and lone-wolf tendencies have led her to Bramunez to right the wrongs and bring peace.
Meilin maybe a master of Kung Fu but her skills and weapons correspond with Tude’s. Since Meilin is in a new land with new enemies, she has made do with Tude’s weapons and skill masters. To upgrade her weapons and/or skills you’ll recognize that anything traditionally reserved for Tude will apply to her with the exception of costumes.
While she shares many features with Tude, Meilin’s attacks are uniquely hers and fitted for her Kung Fu masteries. Be the first to master her and achieve greatness while exhibiting grace and power.
