Each one does different things (obviously) but for pvp and basic overall use you should use the left path, it’s the buy blade and soul gold best for pvp and for quick protection. It pulls you to it in a straight line (so like if you place one and have a direct uninterrupted path to it, you can teleport to it when you click V after placing it, but if you place it and then run around a building or object of some sort, it wont work, maybe that’s what you’re doing wrong…?)
It’s a very useful skill, and very required in higher level pvp, trust that, it’s not a useless skill.
Lotus of escape is a second stun escape if teched
generally in 45 I put no points into it for pve
Poison lotus or “red flower” moves dazed and stunned enemies inside the radius to the flower and dazes again extending dps time (with hongmoon skill it instaly applies 5 poison stacks Blade And Soul Gold)(works on bosses but its harder to cc them)
Circle of return is the blue flower it is a hongmoon skill that stealths you for 10 seconds and gives you a 50% crit buff and 40% crit damage buff to party its extremely expensive to get because the 3 mats you need to get it only drop in 50 heroic dungeons
The other 2 flowers are the purple stun escape and the party help flower, you can move dead party members from unaccessable cheap bns gold spots and reduce revive time while the stun escape is mainly used for pvp it can be used in soloing seeing it gives chi and the hongmoon for it allows you to use it during grapple
