So , if I understood well, to sum up:

- Factions are almost dead, not worth the effort except for Beast Villa inner as a switch inner or PoMF for evasion build.

- Subsects are used mainly for the hidden meridians, which are quite powerful, and also three powerful inners: Five immortals 2nd is the choice of Taiji players, Blood Blade Clan is chosen by many Yang players and Divine Holy Water palace is the election of Yin Soft internal players.

- Wudang and Wanderers Valley are pretty popular for their sets ( but they rely on five immortals 2nd for inner)
- For yang players RG are popular due to the 4th set while they stick with BBC 2nd inner; and Shaolin offers a poor man's Taoist
- Yin soft internal players are mostly using Holy Water Palace 2nd or Scholar's 6th
- Yin soft external players only have one choice: Tang

-Beggars are c r a p

TL;DR : Just a confirmation of what was already known or could be supposed. The rework of Sect sets makes them popular but only Tang, Shaolin and a bit suprisingly, Scholar's offer worthy 6th inners. Players rely on Five inmortals, BBC and HWP 2nd inners mostly. Factions are useless unless you want a specific tool.

That's right except one thing - beggars are not crap, they have just one skill set that is cool, but not very useful.

Ok, then I would like a bit of advice:

I'm going for an evasion build but, watching this info and as an internal Yin Soft user, I wonder if I should also put some effort on HWP 2nd or Scholar's 6th (as I'm Scholar in disguise) just in case. If so which would be more advisable HWP or Scholar?

HWP 2nd inner is better because you will have 14 seconds of reduced damage, 14 seconds of increased damage, healing, and you can go to wudang for the buffed breeze sword.

I dont understand how flower is not popular inner in cn? it can also be used as switch inner just like beast but unlike beast u dont need to be near death to activate it u can switch at 90%hp and get instantly 20%dogde ( 20%dmg reduction ) 3x 2k heal within the 11s, 3x 3k heal with ten aroma and its not popular? 20%dmg reduce 9k hp healed at whatever % during 11s as soon as u are ganked? not to mention that its the best inner to provide emei shield job in group pvp as if u are ganked a dogde is more than enough to give u an opening to cast back the shield :lol:

Probably because you need to be yin-soft, female, defense builds are not popular and on top this inner is hard to obtain (i used alts to farm tokens).

Disclaimer: I dont know that server.
However, SFP was never made easier, you still need 3-6 months just to finish - you cant p2w reputation and you cant do the events alone. Most of the girls on GD completed sfp in the year when the faction came out and maybe next year...
If the same aplies to te oter servers, dont expect more sfps there. Simply put - its easier to go for hwp, ats you can complete these two as fast as you could complete spf, and you will get reverse meridians too...

NA asked for some love for sfp from snail, guess what did they get xD

(btw yes, sfp + emei bubble is broken.... taoist 75 + bubble is broken too but probably those, who paid enough for tat inner dont want to be supports)

Well from what I saw is that PoMF inner is very popular in Chinese.
Many internal P2Ws buy 2 sets (Yang for Taoist and Yin for PoMF)
Some cant afford making 2 sets go for PoMF instead of Taoist
