    This is the first FAQ Iíve written for GameFAQís 
    so please bear with me. Also at the time of me 
    writing this FAQ, I only have the Japanese version 
    of the game(Shin Sangoku Musou 4) and my Japanese 
    is very poor, so I may have some trouble with names and such.
    This FAQ is being written based on my experiences 
    playing the game Dynasty Warriors 5/ Shin Sangoku Musou 4, 
    playing as the character Guan Ping. Through out this FAQ Iíll 
    cover thing such as his, move set, musou mode stages, weapons, 
    models ect.

    3-Guan Ping character Bio
    Guan Ping, 2nd son of Guan Ding, adpoted son of Guan
    Yu. he was adpoted by Guan Yu when he took an intrest
    in him while returning to Liu Bei from Cao Cao. he is
    a pure youth who seeks to be as good on the
    battlefield as his father. At the battle of Bo Wan Po,
    he stoped Han Hao from joining up with Xiahou Dun. at
    the battle of Chang Ban he arrived with his father
    with fresh troops to stop Cao Cao's pursuit.
    At the battle of Cheng Du he captured Li Yan. he then
    went and joined his father in the defence of Jing,
    when Liu Bei took Han Zhong he and his father attacked
    Fan Castle. Due to the betrayal of Mi Fang and Fu Shi
    Ren, the arrival of Wu Reinforcements, and the lack of
    Reinforcements from Liu Feng. Guan Ping and Guan Yu
    were caputred and killed, This caused Liu Bei to
    Attack Wu at Yi Ling.
    In the game, Koei makes it pretty obvious that there
    is something going on between Guan Ping and Xing Cai.
    and durning Xing Cai's Battle of Bai Di Castle, Liu
    Chan wishes he were as strong and brave as Guan Ping,
    and when Xing Cai is in danger, he asks the spirt of
    Guan Ping to "Lend me your courage, if only for a
    4-Why Should I use Guan Ping?
    Guan Ping has a little bit of everything, great crowd control, 
    great power, descent speed and an awesome musou. 
    Not to mention one of the coolest weapons in the game.  
    Once you max him out, and get his 4th weapon, tearing through 
    any stage on hard mode will be a piece of cake.
    Unlocking Guan Ping is pretty simple, 
    just beat musou mode with his father Guan Yu.
    6-Move Set
    Keys: S = Square button, T = Triangle button, C = Circle button
    S- A slash to the left
    SS- A slash to the right

    T- Guan Ping jumps into the air and smashes his sword 
    into the ground, causing a small shockwave that damages enemies near by.
    ST- An upward slash to the right that knocks enemies into the air.
    SST- Guan Ping spins his sword forward 6 times and finishes by 
    smashing it into the ground causing a larger shockwave that damages 
    enemies near by.
    SSST- Guan Ping does 4 spinning slashes moving forward each time.
    SSSST- Guan Ping does a spinning leap with a wave of air around 
    his sword, this knocks enemies into the air.
    SSSSST- Guan Ping leaps high into the air and throws his sword 
    into the ground, this causes an explosion damaging all enemies near
    by. This move has a natural fire effect to it that will cause the enemies 
    to burn and loose health until they hit the floor.

    going right to left.
    Mounted Musou- Guan Ping does repeated downward slashes going
    left to right.
    Musou attack- Guan Ping does a bunch of spinning slashes 
    (Much like Guan Yuís) This move is great for crowd control.
    True Musou attack- Much the same as his musou attack, but 
    at the end Guan Ping leaps into the air and smashes his 
    sword into the ground shooting a shockwave forward damaging all 
    enemies in front of him.  
    It should be noted that from Alternate S6-S9 you need to have a
    weapon at least level 3 that's Evo-capable (aka the little blue
    dot near the weapons name) As well as a full musou bar to use.
    All 4th level weapons are Evo-capable.

    Japanese, so for now Iím just going to call them Weapon 1,

    Requirements for Obtaining Guan Pings 4th
    Stage- Escape from Chi Bi
    Requirement- Defeat all enemy generals and sub generals.
    *Updated Info*
    Well, while playing Escape from Chi Bi as Guan Ping I learned somthing new,
    defeating all enemy sub genereals is not a requirement for Obtaining Guan Pings 
    4th. All you have to do is defeat all enemy main generals for the weapon.
    I will still leave up the current Strategy for Obtaining it though, as it still
    works just fine
    Strategy- Now this seems pretty simple, and for the most part it is, but
    there are two things you got to watch out for.  1, you need to make sure 
    no ally kills a general, I made it down to Xiahou Yuan as the last 
    general and a soldier got the final blow on him, I had to do it ALL over 
    again. 2, you must not let Cao Cao escape,as this ends the battle.
    Now hereís what I did.
    First thing, make sure Guan Ping is built up pretty well, 
    you have to kill pretty fast.Head straight up, the first 
    enemy general youíre going to run into to is Cao Ren, and
    he has two sub generals, kill off all three of them as quickly 
    as possible, and keep heading over.  Next is Zhang Liao, he 
    also has two sub generals, kill them all and keep heading up. 
    By now a reinforcement unit should have appeared near the top 
    of the map, and will be heading toward you. Keep heading towards
    Cao Cao, along the way you should run into Xiahou Dunnís two sub 
    generals and the reinforcement unit (which has no sub generals) 
    kill of all three and keep heading towards Dunn. By the time you 
    make it to Dunn, Xiahou Yuan should have shown up at the top of 
    the map, and two reinforcement units at the bottom of the map, 
    below your alleys.  Do not back track and kill the two below, 
    keep heading for Dunn and kill him off, as well as the gate guard 
    near him.  Keep heading up towards Cao Cao, who should be with 
    Xiahou Yuan, now kill off Cao Caoís two sub generals, Xiahou Yuanís 
    sub general (he only has one) and Xiahou Yuan himself.(But DO NOT KILL 
    Cao Cao) With all the enemy generals out of the way (and the gate guard 
    near Dunn) your alleys should have a clear path to Cao Cao, and they 
    should keep him busy the rest of the map.(meaning he wonít be able escape)
    Now head back to the two reinforcement units at the bottom of the map, 
    each of them has 1 sub general, kill off all 4 and head back up towards 
    Cao Cao. By the time you reach him, the last reinforcement unit should 
    have Appeared near the escape point,go kill off him.(he has no sub
    After that you should get a  Precious Item report near the middle of the 
    map. Go get the weapon and kill Cao Cao.
    Itís nice to have a saddle, but itís not a must. And make sure you have it 
    on Hard mode.
    8-Musou Mode
    Guan Ping has 5 stages in his musou mode, The 5 stages are
    1-Chang Ban-Hills
    2-Escape from Chi Bi
    3-Battle of Mount Ding Jun
    4-Battle of Fan Castle
    5-Battle of Yi Ling
    As soon as I get the US release of this game and can better read
    what's going on in the battles, I'll update with some stage strategies.
    9-Guan Pingís models
    Model 1- this model comes with Guan Ping. He dresses very much 
    like Guan Yu with a very similar color scheme. He has a green vest 
    like thing with some orange around the bottom of it, a white shirt 
    and a green bandanna.  He wears a white waist wrap, Green pants, 
    and a dragon arm protecter on his right arm. He has black spikey
    Model 2- Guan Ping unlocks this model when he gets about 6000 points.  
    This suit is pretty much his first suit with different colors. His vest
    becomes a kind of red orange, with some brown. His bandanna becomes white,
    his shirt becomes red orange with some brown as well. His pants become 
    brown, and his waist wrap gets some brown in it to (but itís still white)
    His hair is the same.
    Model 3- Gaun Ping unlocks this model when he gets around 20000 points. 
    This suit is much like his first, only with a color scheme much more 
    like Guan Yuís DW4 model. His whole suit becomes a much darker green 
    then his first model, with a much darker red trim.  He also has 
    a turban on instead of his bandanna.
    Model 4- Gaun Ping unlocks this model when he get around 20000 points 
    along with his model 3. This suit is just a color change to his model 3. 
    All the dark green becomes white, and the red becomes a lighter green.
    Q: The requirement for obtaining Guan Pings 4th  lvl weapon isn't working?
    A: Make sure youíre playing on hard mode; make sure youíve killed all the 
    enemy sub generals and reinforcement units.
    Q: Do you have to have played Guan Ping Musou mode and got his 2nd and 3rd
    weapon before you get his 4th?
    A: No, I have got many 4th weapons the first time I played the character.
    Q: How do you unlock Guan Ping in DW4?
    A: You canít, Guan Ping is one of the 6 new characters in DW5
    Q: Gaun Ping sucks, he did nothing in history or the novel, why did 
    KOEI add him. They should have added Cheng Pu or Deng Ai.
    A: Because KOEI wanted to, and they didnít want to add Cheng Pu or Deng Ai.
    Q: What's the best stage to get high level items?
    A: I've been able to get 15-20 level items on any 4-5 star stage on hard mode
    or Shura/Expert Mode.  The higer the diffuculty the better chance for a high
    level item. Also using a good Seven star sash (luck+) and a character with a
    high luck+ on his weapon ups the chances for a good item.
    Q: What will you except for your FAQ? And how will I know what I e-mailed you
    will get added?
    A: E-mail me anything, you'll know weather or not I'm going to add it if you get
    an e-mail back.  If you don't get an e-mail back, I either didn't what to add it
    or am already working on it myself.
