1-Introduction
-------------------------------------------------
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. Other FAQs I've written
for GameFAQ's are also based on characters from the game 
Shin Sangoku Musou 4/Dynasty Warriors 5 and they are

Guan Ping
Ling Tong
Ma Chao
Pang Tong
Lu Bu

This FAQ is being written based on my experiences 
playing the game Dynasty Warriors 5/Shin Sangoku Musou 4, 
playing as the character Zhao Yun. Through out this FAQ Ill 
cover thing such as his, move set, musou mode stages, weapons, 
models ect.

3-Zhao Yun character Bio
-------------------------------------------------
officer of Gongsun Zan, Yuan Shao, and Liu Bei. he is a warrior with 
bravery that was unequaled in his time, charging into hordes of enemy 
forces alone. he served under Gongsun Zan first, where he met Liu Bei, he 
long wanted to join Liu Bei, but he was oblgated to serve Gongsun Zan. 
he then went on to serve Yuan Shao after Gongsun died, but at the first 
chance he got, he left and joined Liu Bei. Zhao Yuan is most famous for 
rescusing Liu Chan, Liu Bei's son, at Chang Ban. he served in the

-------------------------------------------------
Zhao Yun is another all around fighter with above avearge stats just 
about everywhere. He has great range in his attacks, good speed, power 
and defence. A maxed out Zhao Yun, with his 4th, should have little 
trouble even in Shura mode.

Requirements for Obtaining Zhao Yun's 4th
Stage- Battle of Cheng Du 
Requirement- completely take the south fort

Strategy- This weapon is a pieace of cake.  Zhao Yun starts right next
to the fort.  First thing you need to do it take a the guard captian
guarding the front door.  Inside there will be one enemy general with
3 sub generals, take out all 4. (Make sure you get the three subs first)
Now kill the two other guard captians guarding the north and west doors
and the gate captian and your done.  

The Precious Item report should show up in the fort, right next to you.
Get it and finshes the stage.

Snice this is just a 1 star stage, you wont have to even have Zhao Yun worked
up well.  A horse is nice, but not needed. Also, make sure your playing on hard 
mode.
--------------------------------------------------
8-Musou Mode
--------------------------------------------------
Zhao Yun has 5 stages in his musou mode, The 5 stages are

1-Battle of Ji Zhou

what's going on in the battles, I'll update with some stage strategies

10-Q&A
--------------------------------------------------
Q: The requirement for obtaining Zhao Yun 4th lvl weapon isn't working?
A: Make sure your playing on hard mode, and make sure YOU score the kill
on everything needed.

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: Do you have to have played Zhao Yun's 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: 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.
