    Version History
    
    1.0 - (November 26, 2010) Initial release.
    
    2.0 - (January 12, 2011) Added charts and ratings for each character who can
          join your team. Also corrected tacticians with 240+ INT are unable to
          learn Li Jian.

    HP / TACTIC CHARTS
    
    Here you will see the amount of HP (soldiers) the Tiger Generals will have on
    any given level. It's always predetermined and nothing changes it. Maximum TP
    (tactical points), on the other hand, increases by 3-5 points randomly, and only
    if you have a tactician in your active team (reserves doesn't count) who can
    learn the tactic that goes with the level.
    
    Example: You reach level 23, where you learn Wan Fu. To learn this, your current
    team needs at least one officer who has an INT of 220 or higher. If you don't
    have anyone whose INT is 220 or higher, you won't learn Wan Fu until you find
    an officer who's intelligent enough to use it (and they'll already come with
    it). On top of this, you'll miss out on the TP increase.
    
    The INT requirements to learn/use a tactic are not be the exact values; I got
    these values from the least intelligent officers (at least the ones you can
    recruit) who have access to the tactics.
    
    Any level with dashes for the Tactics and INT columns means there are no tactics
    to learn on those levels.

    TACTICIANS
    
    Here is a list of tacticians who can join your side. They are ranked from most
    intelligent to least intelligent. Ranks with "T" mean there is at least one
    officer of equal intelligence. Be careful that some tiers are right next to each
    other, in case you misread ranks 4/5/6, 17/18, 23/24/25 as one tier.
    
    Here's also a crude chart of what tactics you can learn. To read the A12345 and
    such mean, A is fire tactics, B is water tactics, C is healing tactics, D is
    defensive tactics, E is miscellaneous tactics, and F is indirect offensive
    tactics. The numbers represent the order the tactics are learned in that
    particular category. See next section for details.

    If I missed any tacticians who can join you, feel free to inform me. Strangely
    enough, some enemies can use tactics but lose the ability to be a tactician when
    they join your side. Characters like Pang De, who use tactics against you and
    have the common tacticians' portrait, are an example.
    
    ================================================================================
    THE TACTICS
    
    Might as well discuss and analyze each of the tactics.
    
    .....Slot 1 = Fire tactics......................................................
    Lian Huo (2 TP) - Deals about 30-50 damage to one enemy. Pretty useful, because
         you don't have any better ways to spend your TP and it gives your weaker
         characters like Chen Deng or Mi Zhe a chance to inflict good damage.
    Ye Huo (4 TP) - Deals about 70-150 damage to one enemy. Great in the Dong Zhuo
         chapter.
    Yan Re (6 TP) - Deals about 100-200 damage to ALL enemies. It's good for
         softening enemies who are barely above 1000 soldiers, and maybe wiping out
         Rebel Forces in boss battles. But I wouldn't count on it to deplete an
         entire general of his army.
    Da Re (8 TP) - Deals about 700-1100 damage to one enemy. Quite a big step up in
         damage, but don't use up your TP too fast because you may need to heal or
         something.
    Huo Shen (12 TP) - Deals about 1000-2000 damage to ALL enemies. Try this with
         Bei Ji for some massive damage! Again, watch your TP.
    ................................................................................
    
    .....Slot 2 = Water tactics.....................................................
    Shui Tu (3 TP) - Deals about 50-70 damage to one enemy. Pretty much pointless.
    Shui Xing (6 TP) - Deals about 90-200 damage to one enemy. It does a good job
         of taking out bosses in the Yuan Shu chapter.
    Shui Lei (8 TP) - Deals about 130-250 damage to ALL enemies. I never really
         used this one.
    Hong Shui (12 TP) - Deals about 1000-1600 damage to ALL enemies.
    Shui Long (15 TP) - Deals about 1800-3000 damage to ALL enemies.
    
    Since water tactics can only be used in battles that begin near water (you have
    to be adjacent or one space away from any body of water), you'll probably only
    have very specific uses for them. However, for those brief periods of time they
    can be devastating. I never found a practical use for Shui Tu and Shui Lei,
    though.
    ................................................................................
    
    In short: Early on, the water and fire tactics are very powerful. But later in
    the game, you'll be spending your TP on other tactics, namely healing,
    defensive, and indirect offensive tactics.
    
    .....Slot 3 = Healing tactics...................................................
    Chi Xin (3 TP) - Restores about 70-100 HP to one character.
    Tong Xian (5 TP ) - Restores about 400-700 HP to one character.
    Yin Xian (10 TP) - Restores about 900-1500 HP to the whole team.
    Wan Fu (10 TP) - Fully restores one ally!
    Jin Xian (4 TP) - Restores about 4000-6000 HP to the whole team.
    
    All the healing tactics are useful, so I can't say much about them, other than
    debating whether Wan Fu is better than Yin Xian and Jin Xian. When you first
    learn Wan Fu, Yin Xian still restores 90-100% to everyone, making Wan Fu
    inefficient. However, you'll quickly see how effective Wan Fu can be when
    commanding larger armies. Even with massive numbers, I find Jin Xian better
    overall because it still heals enough, heals everyone, and is so cheap to cast.
    ................................................................................
    
    .....Slot 4 = Defensive tactics.................................................
    Wuo Jian (4 TP) - Reduces damage from fire tactics. Useless.
    Shui Jian (3 TP) - Reduces damage from water tactics. Useless.
    Ji Rou (5 TP) - Reduces damage from ALL physical attacks. VERY useful, enjoy
         using it while you can.
    Ji Mian (7 TP) - Prevents the other team's physical attacks from working. May
         or may not wear off at the beginning of your command input, so it can
         either be incredibly helpful or horribly inefficient. Don't rely on it too
         much, but at the same time don't discount it.
    Ce Mian (17 TP) - Prevents the other team's tactics from working. Though quite
         expensive to cast, it's almost essential in the final bits of the game
         when you need to stop enemies from using Wan Fu or Ji Mian.
    
    Ji Rou and above are lifesavers. Ce Mian especially when you're going up against
    Si Ma Yi.
    ................................................................................
    
    .....Slot 5 = Miscellaneous.....................................................
    Cheng Nei (5 TP) - Increases "the castle's defensive rating". I honestly haven't
         noticed a difference in damage taken, and it could be luck but I've noticed
         opposing tactics failing more often with this in effect, which makes me
         think that's what it does. But with a brilliant officer or two, it's
         nothing. This is assuming my theory is correct, too.
    Jie Ce (5 TP) - Cancels out all of the enemy's defensive tactics and indirect
         offensive moves they do. This is completely useless, because by the time
         you fight enemies who use Ji Rou, Bei Ji, or Ji Mian, you won't have this
         tactic anymore...and using this against other defensive tactics isn't going
         to make much of a difference, if at all.
    Yi Xin (5 TP) - Temporarily disables one target. It's actually more useful than
         it sounds, enjoy it while you can.
    Tui Lu (5 TP) - Retreat from a battle, even bosses. Pretty much pointless; why
         weren't this an Yi Xin switched around? It'd make more sense that way.
    Gui Huan (6 TP) - Escapes the battle and teleports you to the palace Liu Bei is
         in. It's mildly useful, when you want to save and quit almost immediately.
    
    These aren't very useful; the only one worth using is Yi Xin, but you'll lose
    that at level 25.
    ................................................................................
    
    .....Slot 6 = Indirect offensive................................................
    Qi Shou (4 TP) - Increases the unseen "agility" stat of one character, making
         them more likely to go first in battle. Another tactic that won't see use
         because by the time it makes a difference you won't have it anymore.
    Fu Bing (6 TP) - User attacks twice when this works. As a nice bonus, anybody
         who successfully uses this will get a 50-50 chance of extra attacks for
         the remainder of the battle, so it's not just the turn you use it.
    Li Jian (6 TP) - Tricks its target into attacking his own allies. Try it if you
         like, but I didn't use this one much.
    An Sha (10 TP) - Instantly kills one opponent. With a brilliant officer using
         this against low or even mid INT enemies, you can speed your way through
         most boss fights in no time at all!
    Bei Ji (10 TP) - Increases attack power of one ally, this applies to fire and
         water tactics used by someone under this spell! A ludicrously useful
         tactic which will prove to be invaluable against the toughest enemies in
         the game.
    
    Fu Bing is great for its time, especially if you can find the hidden weapons in
    the neighboring towns. Once you learn An Sha, it's wise to strategically switch
    tacticians so you can also switch between An Sha and Bei Ji. It all depends on
    the bosses you're about to face against.

    ================================================================================
    INTERESTING (MINOR) THINGS
    
    Even if a character cannot learn tactics, they can still be a tactician if their
    STR is equal to or less than their INT.
    
    Each red bar in the status screen represents 13 points of STR/INT/AP/AC/TP.
    
    The reserves can hold 8 pages of 8 generals. You can store up to 64 generals in
    the reserves, and 7 in your active party, making a grand total of 71.
    
    There are 139 possible generals who can join you, but because some leave you'll
    have access to 134 by the end of the game.
    
    Throughout the game, you might notice the life bars change colors when your HP
    is high enough. Here are the exact values for each color:
    
    Pink           0-499
    Orange       500-2000
    Yellow      2001-5000
    Light Blue  5001-10000
    Dark Blue  10001-15000
    Green      15001-above
    
    Every pixel represents:
    Pink.......10
    Orange.....40
    Yellow.....100
    Light Blue.200
    Dark Blue..300
    Green......400
    
    Full life bar:
    Pink.......631
    Orange.....2521
    Yellow.....6301
    Light Blue.12601
    Dark Blue..18901
    Green......25201
    
    Finally, because of Bei Ji, officers with 240+ INT are unable to use (or learn)
    An Sha or Li Jian, regardless of your army's level.
    ================================================================================

    RECRUITABLE GENERAL CHARTS
    
    This is a list of all the generals you can recruit, in order of appearance /
    availability. Here are what the ratings mean:
     1=Garbage. A waste of effort, character slot, and resources.
     2=I would seriously not recommend using that person.
     3=Pretty much pointless.
     4=Not without a use, but still sucks.
     5=Nothing special here. A ho-hum character that's neither great nor crap.
     6=Decent, but easily outclassed by better characters.
     7=Good, but not great. May have some flaws that don't hinder them TOO badly.
     8=A solid character who should have a place on your team whenever possible.
     9=Killer character! They definitely deserve a spot in your fighting team.
    10=Unstoppable beast!

    CHARACTER GUIDE
    
    Same as above, but this one gives comments and my opinion for each general.
    
    .....Liu Bei        [Rating: 9/10] HP   314,   STR 180,   INT 225,   AGI  49
    Enjoy using him while you can, because he isn't with you for long. Unless you're
    trying to level up to 12 so you can get Fu Bing without missing out on the MTP
    gain on level 12.
    
    .....Guan Yu        [Rating: 9/10] HP Grows,   STR 245,   INT 180,   AGI  58
    
    .....Zhang Fei      [Rating: 9/10] HP Grows,   STR 250,   INT  75,   AGI  60
    
    .....Song Ren       [Rating: 2/10] HP   110,   STR  80,   INT 100,   AGI  44
    Well, he can be a tactician, even though he won't be doing a good job of it.
    
    .....Song Yong      [Rating: 1/10] HP   104,   STR  60,   INT  40,   AGI  30
    Replace ASAP.
    
    .....Mi Zhe         [Rating: 7/10] HP   161,   STR  73,   INT 157,   AGI  70
    Pretty much your tactician of choice until Li Ru or Huo Hu come along.
    
    .....Chen Deng      [Rating: 7/10] HP   153,   STR  94,   INT 157,   AGI  54
    Whether Chen Deng is better than Mi Zhe or not, I cannot say. He hits a bit
    harder and has equal INT, but he's also slower. The HP difference is almost nil.
    
    .....Han Zhong      [Rating: 4/10] HP   204,   STR  80,   INT  30,   AGI  40
    Not much for fighting, but he does have a decent amount of HP for that time. The
    main reason to use him is to persuade the bridge builder.
    
    .....Zheng Mao      [Rating: 1/10] HP   153,   STR  93,   INT  34,   AGI  55
    So what if he's better than Song Yong? At least Song Yong can be used as a
    filler character! No reason to ever use him.
    
    .....Cheng Yuan Zhi [Rating: 2/10] HP   195,   STR  85,   INT  68,   AGI  50
    He isn't quite as sucky as Zheng Mao, but really, do you want to drag this
    piece of crap around?
    
    .....Liu Feng       [Rating: 8/10] HP   399,   STR 187,   INT 162,   AGI 128
    A worthy replacement for Liu Bei, you'll be using him for a significant amount
    of time.
    
    .....Yang Jin       [Rating: 6/10] HP   247,   STR 125,   INT  40,   AGI  48
    He's just beefier than the other idiots you've met so far.
    
    .....Hua Xiong      [Rating: 7/10] HP   439,   STR 162,   INT  36,   AGI 126
    Hua Xiong is the first general you can capture who is actually worth using. Not
    only because of his high stats (except INT), but he's ready to join you rather
    early, so he can see quite a bit of usage.
    
    .....Li Su          [Rating: 2/10] HP   299,   STR  99,   INT  45,   AGI  66
    Terrible stats, and better generals will be available right away.
    
    .....Guan Ping      [Rating: 9/10] HP   418,   STR 200,   INT 137,   AGI 140
    An excellent character, noticeably better. You'll want to use him for a long
    time before you decide to leave him in the reserves.
    
    .....Huo Hu         [Rating: 7/10] HP   236,   STR  80,   INT 175,   AGI  40
    Definitely a step up from the other tacticians. Keep him until you either get
    Li Ru, Cai Yong, or Xu Zhe.
    
    .....Li Ru          [Rating: 7/10] HP   362,   STR  18,   INT 200,   AGI 100
    By far the most intelligent officer until Xu Zhe is available, and for a long
    time too. Just make sure you have 5 other generals in your party, because you
    certainly don't want to be using him for attacking!
    
    .....Li Jue         [Rating: 4/10] HP   399,   STR 120,   INT  72,   AGI  67
    Maybe if you switched him and Hua Xiong, it'd be debatable whether to use him.
    But no, he's not very useful.
    
    .....Xu Rong        [Rating: 1/10] HP   314,   STR  90,   INT 117,   AGI  60
    Don't bother, really. Poor in combat, and even Mi Zhe and Chen Deng make better
    tacticians.
    
    .....Guo Ji         [Rating: 4/10] HP   418,   STR 128,   INT  72,   AGI  90
    This guy is moderately strong, but he'll never be as good as those already
    established in your army.
    
    .....Wang Gui       [Rating: 6/10] HP   346,   STR 110,   INT  40,   AGI  55
    A tad weaker than Yang Jin, but the difference in their attack power is
    negligible and his HP is significantly better. A good replacement if you don't
    already have Hua Xiong or Lu Bu.
    
    .....Lu Bu          [Rating:10/10] HP   439,   STR 255,   INT  72,   AGI 180
    It can take a bit of luck to get Lu Bu to recognize the Gemsword, but you'll be
    glad you did. By far the deadliest warrior on your team, and skipping out on him
    means you'll have to deal with him a few more times. Enjoy using him while you
    can, because he leaves when you first meet Yuan Shao.
    
    .....Cai Yong       [Rating: 7/10] HP   380,   STR 117,   INT 180,   AGI 100
    Now this guy is quite versatile. He can be useful as your tactician and/or in
    your front five.
    
    .....Hu Zhen        [Rating: 1/10] HP   299,   STR  90,   INT  45,   AGI  60
    Worthless unit, there's no advantages to using him. Period.
    
    .....Fen Chou       [Rating: 5/10] HP   399,   STR 153,   INT  36,   AGI 110
    He could've been useful, but by the time he's available you've already
    established a full team.
    
    .....Zhang Ji       [Rating: 4/10] HP   362,   STR 147,   INT  36,   AGI  97
    A bit better than Zhou Chao in every way (see next character for details) but
    you won't be using him because this guy needs to be captured in a random battle,
    whereas Zhou Chao can be found in Chang An.
    
    .....Zhou Chao      [Rating: 4/10] HP   346,   STR 140,   INT  20,   AGI  91
    Like Wang Gui, he's only useful if you don't already have Lu Bu. Even then, his
    only purpose is to be a slight improvement over Wang Gui.
    
    .....Lei Bo         [Rating: 6/10] HP   643,   STR 142,   INT  76,   AGI 120
    A pretty decent character, but you won't be using him for long.
    
    .....Chen Ji        [Rating: 2/10] HP   531,   STR  85,   INT  47,   AGI  63
    Pretty bad, don't put any effort into looking for him.
    
    .....Ji Ling        [Rating: 8/10] HP   613,   STR 192,   INT  47,   AGI 120
    Go ahead and use this guy, he's pretty good for the time you'll be using him.
    
    .....Zhang Xun      [Rating: 7/10] HP   675,   STR 183,   INT  28,   AGI  91
    Use only if you don't want to be bothered trying to get Ji Ling, and only if you
    happen to run into this guy.
    
    .....Han Xian       [Rating: 3/10] HP   585,   STR 114,   INT  38,   AGI  96
    Not quite as sucky as the next three guys, but still useless.
    
    .....Li Feng        [Rating: 1/10] HP   557,   STR  76,   INT  57,   AGI  56
    Please...
    
    .....Liang Ji       [Rating: 2/10] HP   643,   STR  85,   INT  76,   AGI  67
    Marginally "better" than Li Feng and the next two guys, but he's nothing.
    
    .....Chen Lan       [Rating: 1/10] HP   460,   STR  76,   INT  57,   AGI  56
    Why does this guy suck so much? Even if he joined in the Dong Zhuo chapter, he'd
    still suck like hell.
    
    .....Liang Gang     [Rating: 1/10] HP   506,   STR  85,   INT  28,   AGI  63
    Pure and utter crap.
    
    .....Lu Fan         [Rating: 4/10] HP   817,   STR  76,   INT 161,   AGI  60
    Not terrible, but still someone you shouldn't use.
    
    .....Zhou Cang      [Rating: 8/10] HP   506,   STR 215,   INT  85,   AGI 128
    Pretty strong physically, keep him until you find better characters.
    
    .....Lu Guang       [Rating: 8/10] HP  1037,   STR 160,   INT  50,   AGI 136
    Most likely the first character you can get whose HP is over 1000, his decent
    STR and AGI can also be of tremendous help.
    
    .....Shen Pei       [Rating: 1/10] HP  1255,   STR  60,   INT 130,   AGI  48
    Don't buy into his high HP. Worthless in and out of combat.
    
    .....Gao Lan        [Rating: 5/10] HP   942,   STR 100,   INT  60,   AGI  85
    Good damage-absorber, but that's it.
    
    .....Xu Zhe         [Rating: 9/10] HP   643,   STR  73,   INT 220,   AGI 171
    Best tactician until Pang Tong or Zhu Ge Liang come along. Definitely use him as
    your tactician, but you can feel free to use him in a team of five. Make the
    most of him before he leaves (which happens after completing the Jing Zhou and
    Yuan Shao chapters).
    
    .....Xu Shou        [Rating: 3/10] HP  1255,   STR  40,   INT 170,   AGI 100
    You shouldn't have a use for him, because Xu Zhe is better. Again, don't buy
    into his high HP.
    
    .....Yan Liang      [Rating: 7/10] HP  1381,   STR 180,   INT  40,   AGI 144
    Pretty good unless you get someone better like Wen Hun, who's available at the
    same time.
    
    .....Wen Hun        [Rating: 8/10] HP  1449,   STR 190,   INT  40,   AGI 152
    A step up from Yan Liang in every way.
    
    .....Zhao Yun       [Rating:10/10] HP Grows,   STR 245,   INT 216,   AGI  67
    This guy is THE MAN. Even though he's a little slow and his HP is a rather low
    at lower levels, you'll quickly see by a long shot he's one of the best
    characters in the game. Also as an added bonus he looks kickass, too!
    
    .....Tian Feng      [Rating: 6/10] HP  1141,   STR 120,   INT 160,   AGI 108
    Well he could've been useful if you just didn't have better characters already.
    
    .....Ma Yan         [Rating: 1/10] HP   942,   STR  90,   INT  80,   AGI  64
    Not even a damage absorber, because your levels are approaching his.
    
    .....Lu Xiang       [Rating: 4/10] HP   942,   STR 150,   INT  50,   AGI 120
    Not bad, but nowhere near as good as Lu Guang, Wen Hun, Yan Liang, or Wei Yan 
    because he doesn't benefit from the 1000 HP attack multipler.
    
    .....Zhang Yi       [Rating: 1/10] HP   989,   STR 100,   INT  90,   AGI  80
    Leave him.
    
    .....Guo Tu         [Rating: 7/10] HP  1317,   STR 180,   INT  90,   AGI 144
    Now this guy isn't bad at all...just that he's available a bit later than he
    would've been useful in.
    
    .....Ju Shou        [Rating: 3/10] HP  1449,   STR  40,   INT 180,   AGI 100
    Suffers the same problem as Tian Feng.
    
    .....Gong Zhi       [Rating: 1/10] HP  1197,   STR  94,   INT 157,   AGI  85
    None of his stats are good, let alone satisfactory for this part of the game.
    
    .....Huang Zhong    [Rating: 8/10] HP Grows,   STR 235,   INT 147,   AGI  76
    One of the Tiger Generals, I think that says enough.
    
    .....Wei Yan        [Rating:10/10] HP  1317,   STR 228,   INT 136,   AGI 228
    If you can complete the Chang Sha castle at the first opportunity, this guy will
    devastate everybody you come across. Even if you pursue Yuan Shao before
    settling Jing Zhou, he's still a solid character.
    
    .....Yang Ling      [Rating: 5/10] HP  1197,   STR 168,   INT  42,   AGI 160
    His HP isn't getting him anywhere and you already have enough good characters.
    
    .....Bao Long       [Rating: 3/10] HP  1255,   STR 126,   INT  63,   AGI 120
    Decent agility but that's it.
    
    .....Chen Ying      [Rating: 2/10] HP  1197,   STR 136,   INT  42,   AGI 123
    Ugh.
    
    .....Pang Tong      [Rating:10/10] HP  3765,   STR  99,   INT 240,   AGI  72
    This guy is WAY overpowered! He's tough to get, but well worth it! By far the
    best general until maybe near the endgame. Let him take the lead because he has
    more than enough HP to be a tank.
    
    .....Ma Su          [Rating: 7/10] HP  1754,   STR 138,   INT 195,   AGI 170
    He's actually more useful than you might think, offensively and defensively.
    
    .....Ma Liang       [Rating: 6/10] HP  1449,   STR  59,   INT 211,   AGI 180
    Another general who could've been good if you just didn't have someone better.
    
    .....Zhu Ge Liang   [Rating:10/10] HP Grows,   STR 122,   INT 255,   AGI  56
    I think 255 INT says it all; the most brilliant tactician is effective in and
    out of battle. He allows for the highest MTP, and can use the best tactics.
    In battle, enemy tactics almost never work on him.
    
    .....Liu Kui        [Rating: 2/10] HP  3262,   STR 110,   INT 110,   AGI 115
    Those stats aren't getting him anywhere. He does come in early, but I wouldn't
    get him unless you're really desperate for a damage absorber.
    
    .....Zhang Ren      [Rating: 9/10] HP  3262,   STR 207,   INT 165,   AGI 207
    Packs a pretty good punch, and considering how early you get him in the Shu
    chapter, he'll likely have double or triple the HP your other generals have.
    Good speed, too.
    
    .....Meng Da        [Rating: 4/10] HP  3589,   STR 154,   INT 132,   AGI 154
    Mediocrity.
    
    .....Tao Qian       [Rating: 1/10] HP  2226,   STR  90,   INT 160,   AGI  80
    Are you serious? Pathetic stats, and his HP isn't even that good. He doesn't
    even learn tactics, so don't let his portrait fool you.
    
    .....Yan Yan        [Rating: 7/10] HP  3262,   STR 207,   INT 154,   AGI 207
    A good choice if you don't have Zhang Ren or Ma Dai yet.
    
    .....Fa Zhang       [Rating: 2/10] HP  2965,   STR  66,   INT 198,   AGI 180
    High agility, but there's more to a good general. Which he doesn't have.
    
    .....Yang Huai      [Rating: 3/10] HP  2965,   STR 165,   INT  99,   AGI 157
    Not impressive.
    
    .....Huang Quan     [Rating: 1/10] HP  2695,   STR  66,   INT 165,   AGI  75
    This guy is no match for Pang Tong, or most everyone else in this chapter.
    
    .....Leng Bao       [Rating: 1/10] HP  2024,   STR 180,   INT  99,   AGI 120
    Not impressing anybody. Considering better candidates at this point in the game,
    he's completely useless.
    
    .....Ma Chao        [Rating: 8/10] HP Grows,   STR 245,   INT 162,   AGI  88
    Excellent strength and he does grow in HP due to being a Tiger General. He isn't
    as badass as Zhao Yun, but that doesn't stop him from being a good character.
    
    .....Ma Dai         [Rating: 9/10] HP  3110,   STR 225,   INT 175,   AGI 180
    An excellent character who doesn't need to be found in a random battle to obtain
    so you can make good use of this guy.
    
    .....Li Yan         [Rating: 1/10] HP  2827,   STR  90,   INT 160,   AGI 130
    This guy is AWFUL!
    
    .....Liu Ba         [Rating: 1/10] HP  2569,   STR  99,   INT 176,   AGI  99
    No. Stop it now...
    
    .....Liu Xun        [Rating: 2/10] HP  3110,   STR 132,   INT  99,   AGI 120
    Below-average at best, and you likely have established your team for this point.
    
    .....Lei Tong       [Rating: 6/10] HP  3110,   STR 184,   INT  88,   AGI 207
    His agility is impressive, but Zhang Ren has the same and does everything else
    better.
    
    .....Wu Lan         [Rating: 6/10] HP  2965,   STR 180,   INT  99,   AGI 195
    Not bad, but you probably won't be using him much if you do.
    
    .....Gao Pei        [Rating: 2/10] HP  2827,   STR 172,   INT  88,   AGI 126
    
    .....Wu Yi          [Rating: 6/10] HP  3589,   STR 176,   INT 146,   AGI 176
    An okay general with acceptable stats in each category, but he does come in
    rather late in the Shu chapter, so you won't need him.
    
    .....Wang Lei       [Rating: 1/10] HP  2827,   STR 135,   INT 132,   AGI  62
    
    .....Zhang Bao      [Rating: 8/10] HP Grows,   STR 240,   INT 150,   AGI 100
    He'll have the highest HP of all your members and his stats are pretty good, but
    for some reason you can't put him in the reserves should you include him in your
    active party. Because of this I don't recommend using him, but go ahead and use
    him if you like.
    
    .....Guan Xing      [Rating: 8/10] HP Grows,   STR 237,   INT 175,   AGI  98
    For some reason you also can't take him out of your party if you decide to
    include him. This kind of takes the flexibility out of your possible teams,
    which can be bad in a low-level game. If you could just put Guan Xing and/or
    Zhang Bao in the reserves after adding them to your active team, then I wouldn't
    mind using them.
    
    .....Ling Tong      [Rating: 2/10] HP  5516,   STR 161,   INT 103,   AGI 161
    .....Wu Fan         [Rating: 1/10] HP  5014,   STR  69,   INT 184,   AGI 176
    .....Fan Zhang      [Rating: 1/10] HP  4780,   STR 185,   INT  90,   AGI 161
    .....Chen Wu        [Rating: 1/10] HP  5014,   STR 161,   INT 115,   AGI 154
    
    .....Gan Ning       [Rating: 8/10] HP  6069,   STR 223,   INT 140,   AGI 218
    Pretty good tank for the remainder of Wu, and considering it's a long chapter
    you can go ahead and use this guy.
    
    .....Lu Su          [Rating: 8/10] HP  6365,   STR 120,   INT 218,   AGI 199
    He's pretty good if your most brilliant officers haev Wan Fu and you still want
    to use Yin Xian. Good stats are other reasons to use him.
    
    .....Zhou Yu        [Rating:10/10] HP  6365,   STR 195,   INT 230,   AGI 209
    The first officer who can learn An Sha, this guy can really destroy most enemies
    that stand in your way. Take your time to recruit him, you'll be saving lots of
    time in the long run.
    
    .....Gu Yong        [Rating: 1/10] HP  5014,   STR 127,   INT 184,   AGI 110

    .....Han Dang       [Rating: 1/10] HP  5516,   STR 180,   INT 115,   AGI 126
    
    .....Ding Feng      [Rating: 6/10] HP 15769,   STR 120,   INT 184,   AGI  48
    The first character you can get whose HP is over 10000, his STR and INT are
    acceptable, but not enough for him to truly be a great character. He's as slow
    as a slug, too. Watch out for that.
    
    .....Chen Pu        [Rating: 5/10] HP  9326,   STR 120,   INT 210,   AGI 168
    .....Zhang Zhao     [Rating: 9/10] HP  8082,   STR 140,   INT 240,   AGI 178
    .....Bu Xi          [Rating: 3/10] HP  7003,   STR 124,   INT 192,   AGI  88
    .....Huang Gai      [Rating: 7/10] HP  9326,   STR 217,   INT 103,   AGI 207
    
    .....Zhang Hong     [Rating: 7/10] HP 10763,   STR 113,   INT 211,   AGI 187
    Think Ding Feng, but trade in some HP and a wee bit of strength for improved
    intellect and agility. Good, but not useful.
    
    .....Zhu Zhi        [Rating: 9/10] HP 10261,   STR 210,   INT  95,   AGI 143
    The first heavy hitter whose HP is over 10000, he can dish out and take heavy
    punishment.
    
    .....Zhou Tai       [Rating: 7/10] HP 10763,   STR 180,   INT  45,   AGI 195
    Not too shabby, another heavy hitter whose HP is over 10000. I'd rather use Zhu
    Zhi, though. But go ahead and use him if you can, he isn't too bad.
    
    .....Xue Zong       [Rating: 1/10] HP  9326,   STR  69,   INT 103,   AGI 110
    A plague to the field, I do not recommend using him for anything.
    
    .....Lu Ji          [Rating: 1/10] HP 11289,   STR  57,   INT 161,   AGI  62
    Useless, and not just because of Zhu Ge Liang, Pang Tong, Lu Su, and Zhou Yu.
    He just plain sucks.
    
    .....Xu Sheng       [Rating: 8/10] HP 11289,   STR 195,   INT 103,   AGI 204
    Strong attacks and high AGI may warrant using him.
    
    .....Tai Si Ci      [Rating: 9/10] HP 15769,   STR 230,   INT 123,   AGI 209
    Even better than the first 10000+ HP fighters in every way, and his HP is high
    enough so he can take advantage of the 10000+ HP attack multiplier much longer
    than they can.
    
    .....Lu Sun         [Rating: 9/10] HP 11841,   STR 215,   INT 240,   AGI 180
    One of the best characters in a low-level game, still pretty good otherwise.
    Don't underestimate some of the non-Tiger Generals, their AGI is one reason.
    
    .....Pang De        [Rating: 1/10] HP  2965,   STR 212,   INT 200,   AGI 190
    For some reason, he doesn't show up until late in the game after beating him as
    a boss. Real bummer, because he would've been great if you could get him in Shu.
    
    .....Xia Hou Yuan   [Rating: 7/10] HP 11289,   STR 204,   INT 168,   AGI 212
    He's definitely useable. I'd use him if he just happens to be around, but I
    wouldn't go out of my way trying to capture him.
    
    .....Jiang Wei      [Rating:10/10] HP Grows,   STR 204,   INT 225,   AGI 250
    One of the best characters in every way, especially because his HP grows, as a
    Tiger General. Only problem is his status portrait looks rather fruity.
    
    .....Zhang Liao     [Rating: 9/10] HP 13027,   STR 232,   INT 216,   AGI 237
    This guy is great. All of his stats are excellent and his HP is pretty good when
    he's first available. His HP remains reasonable for the endgame, even at level
    50-51.
    
    .....Xia Hou Dun    [Rating: 7/10] HP 13665,   STR 204,   INT 192,   AGI 212
    Better than Xia Hou Yuan. See Xia Hou Yuan comments for a similar analysis.
    
    .....Xia Hou Shang  [Rating: 4/10] HP 17349,   STR 156,   INT 144,   AGI 158
    All stats are too mediocre, they simply aren't enough.
    
    .....Xia Hou De     [Rating: 4/10] HP 16540,   STR 168,   INT 132,   AGI 168
    See above.
    
    .....Cao Zhen       [Rating: 6/10] HP 10763,   STR 192,   INT 192,   AGI 200
    Good stats, but considering his HP and your other characters, you shouldn't be
    using him.
    
    .....Cao Zhi        [Rating: 7/10] HP 13665,   STR 132,   INT 220,   AGI 225
    *sigh* Just how many tacticians are "good, but useless because of Zhu Ge Liang
    or the likes"? Here's another one.
    
    .....Cao Ren        [Rating: 5/10] HP 14333,   STR 180,   INT 156,   AGI 180
    
    .....Cao Xiu        [Rating: 3/10] HP 15034,   STR 162,   INT 108,   AGI 175
    
    
    .....Cao Chun       [Rating: 2/10] HP 13665,   STR 168,   INT  48,   AGI 168
    Yeech, mediocre stats only rubbed in to being worse because his terrible INT
    will only result to being An Sha'd frequently.
    
    .....Cao Zhang      [Rating: 9/10] HP 19087,   STR 242,   INT 168,   AGI 237
    Now this guy packs some serious power. He's arguably better than some of the
    Tiger Generals, namely because of his far superior agility. Definitely worth
    getting in a low-level game! Very good in a normal playthrough as well.
    
    .....Cao Hong       [Rating: 1/10] HP 11841,   STR 156,   INT  60,   AGI 156
    Another character who simply doesn't have what it takes to handle the endgame.
    
    .....Cao Ang        [Rating: 6/10] HP 18197,   STR 180,   INT  84,   AGI 180
    Moderate stats and low INT, nothing special.
    
    .....Xia Hou Mao    [Rating: 5/10] HP 16540,   STR 180,   INT  84,   AGI 180
    Cao Ang with less HP, he's of no use to you.
    
    .....Dian Wei       [Rating: 8/10] HP 20020,   STR 222,   INT  48,   AGI 225
    Even if you don't actually use him, he's worth capturing because he won't be
    part of a boss battle he would be in otherwise.
    
    .....Niu Jin        [Rating: 7/10] HP 20020,   STR 204,   INT  36,   AGI 212
    Pretty solid hitter with a healthy supply of HP. Just beward of his terrible
    INT, as An Sha will work easily.
    
    .....Yang Xiu       [Rating: 7/10] HP 20999,   STR 124,   INT 228,   AGI 190
    How many times will I have to say this? He's good but with Zhu Ge Liang and the
    likes he isn't very useful.
    
    .....Jiang Gan      [Rating: 4/10] HP 19087,   STR 136,   INT 180,   AGI 150
    Not as terrible as some countless characters are, but still pretty bad.
    
    .....Xun Huo        [Rating: 1/10] HP 25418,   STR  72,   INT 108,   AGI 164
    Good HP, but it isn't enough to save him from the pits of uselessness.
    
    .....Li Dian        [Rating: 2/10] HP 23103,   STR 156,   INT 108,   AGI 156
    This guy isn't going to help you at all, he sucks.
    
    .....Wang Shuang    [Rating: 7/10] HP 20999,   STR 216,   INT  48,   AGI 225
    Finally, a good character in awhile, after dealing with so many sucky ones!
    Granted, he won't be one of your top units, but he's good nonetheless.
    
    .....Liu Dai        [Rating: 3/10] HP 26661,   STR 168,   INT  84,   AGI 168
    Good HP, but it isn't enough to save him from the pits of uselessness.
    
    .....Chen Qun       [Rating: 5/10] HP 24233,   STR  72,   INT 228,   AGI 190
    Good, but useless, especially considering how late in the game he joins.
    
    .....Lu Wen         [Rating: 4/10] HP 22026,   STR 168,   INT 132,   AGI 168
    Ignore him.
    
    .....Le Xin         [Rating: 5/10] HP 29332,   STR 168,   INT  72,   AGI 168
    Very high HP, but that doesn't make up for his poor stats.
    
    .....Wang Can       [Rating: 1/10] HP 13027,   STR  36,   INT 204,   AGI 156
    No STR, below-average HP and being outclassed by better tacticians...I think
    this says enough.
    
    .....Mao Jie        [Rating: 2/10] HP 24233,   STR 132,   INT  72,   AGI 132
    You're so close to finishing the game by the time he's available, he sucks!
    
    .....Hou Cheng      [Rating: 3/10] HP 18197,   STR 192,   INT 108,   AGI 192
    Same as Mao Jie, but he's a little more balanced. Still not worth using though.
    
    .....Liu Ye         [Rating: 1/10] HP 16540,   STR  60,   INT 180,   AGI 180
    And the last character who joins you...sucks!
