Zhen Ji Character Biography
__________________________________________________________________

Zhen Ji was born in Zhong Shan.  She is the Daughter of Zhen Yi, governor of 
Zhen Yi.  She was known throughout the land as a woman of sophisticated 
beauty, and exceptional intellect.  Married off to Yuan Xi, in an attempt 
for Yuan Shao to increase his power in the north. While serving in the Battle 
of Guan Du, Cao Pi, Cao Cao's son, came across Zhen, and immediately married 
her, as he became quickly enamored with her.  When Cao Pi later unified 
China, and became emperor, he made her his empress, where she lived in 
happiness for the rest of her life.

How to Get 4th weapon:             

(Make Sure its on HARD or CHAOS Mode)             

(Battle of He Fei Castle)                 

Oh god, if this were any easier... Just kill at least 300 
(hell, I got over 1100) people and go by Cao Pi, you'll get an intermission 
movie, where Zhen Ji is killing troops with her Musou.  To do this, just run 
through the castle killing, simple as that, kill troops, officers, whatever, 
there are more then enough.  Watch out for ambushes and whatnot, kill rams 
when they show up, and destroy any officer who gets close to an important 
general.  Item appears just past Zhou Tai on Sun Quan's ship. When Lu Xun 
shows up, use a Musou rage, when your done killing his little squad, another 
Musou rage token should show, use that on Sun Quan.

Zhen Ji's Pros and Cons
__________________________________________________________________

Pros:

She is an EXCELLENT crowd clearer.  Her Musou is wonderful as well, and when 
it's paired with Musou Rage, or in its True Musou form, it really does clear 
anyone and anything out of your way.  Her charge attack, especially in the 
first battle, kills enemies fast, keep them in succession (keep hitting 
Triangle) and it'll clear them faster.  When you get her 3rd//4th weapon, 
her C5 attack is just like one of her Musou attacks, it hurts and dazes 
enemies exceptionally well.  She can hold 4 items at once.

Cons:
Her attack range is quite short however, which is a problem with large groups, 
and no time for charge.  Another problem is how open she is left to attacks, 
due to a slow C(1,2,3,4,5) attacks.

Zhen Ji's Moves

will clear the large groups of enemies that surround you.)

Musou - Plays flute, attacking anything in range

Musou Rage - Same as Musou, except stronger, and she plays 4 flute notes at 
end, finishing off any normal enemy.

Square X4 - attacks, then 360 spin attack, then attacks downwards, then 360

Zhen Ji's Best Items
__________________________________________________________________
Orb - Ice

Harness - Red Hare

Item 1. -Tiger Amulet

Item 2. -Peacock Amulet

Item 3. -Arm Guards

Item 4. -Tortoise Amulet

Item 5. -Wind Scroll


Why? - 

Ice orb is useful, because it freezes the enemy, when you need that
extra couple of seconds to recuperate after an attack.  Her attack speed can 
be quite slow, so this is extremely useful, just so they don't cut in during 
recuperation.              

Red Hare, because she can run quite slow at times.  Use this to run to those 
quick spots, Well, Quick.  I don't recommend fighting on the horse though, 
get off to do that.  But, as always, attack as your charging through enemy 
units.                 

Tiger Amulet, hell, it makes her stronger, I recommend this 
for ALL officers.                    

Arm Guards, her Charge attack is wonderful, but it is slow, yes, use this so 
you can actually get that last note out, instead of being rudely interrupted 
by a grouchy audience.

Tortoise Amulet, because as your charging, and you get hurt, you don't want 
the damage to be that considerable.  You want to get that damage out without 
damage to yourself.

Wind Scroll, because she has relatively short range, this is extremely 
helpful in killing more enemies.

Zhen Ji's Musou
__________________________________________________________________

1. Battle of Guan Du - Easy, use your charge attack to clear enemies out.  
Save attack bases and generals if you can, and take out Guan Yu.  When the 
seige towers appear, protect them if possible.  Search out Cao Pi for a 
cutscene.
 
2. Battle of Chi Bi - Kill Huang Gai!  You can kill Zhuge Liang as well, but 
if you kill Huang Gai first, there is no need. They are the main perpetrators 
of the fire, after that, just kill, maim and murder your way through the 
masses to beat Sun Quan.

3. Battle of Jie Ting - So easy, battle your way up to Ma Su, kill him and 
take the base, (a cutscene should appear, telling you when to attack, till
then, just kill anyone in the center.) Then battle your way through other 
enemies to get to anyone who comes close to Cao Pi, and kill Zhuge Liang.  
Take out Ma Chao when he shows up, he can become quite a pest.  

4. Battle of Wu Zhang Plains - If you haven't beefed her up by now, this will 
be hard.  Head to the right side of the map, to the bottom of the three 
passages there, and kill the defense guard, or w/e the hell his name is, that 
will end all supplies getting to the middle.  Once that's finished, take out 
the two attack bases in the middle, and defend all defense bases till Zhuge 
Croaks (cutscene), then go to the bottom center place, take out the arbalests 
(cutscene,) and advance with the rest of the army to kill Jiang Wei.  Watch 
out for explosions; take out the task team on the bottom right.

5. Battle of He Fei Castle - Medium difficulty, just kill your way till the 
army attacks Sun Quan's Boat.  Save Sima Yi if he starts struggling, and 
watch Cao Pi.  Lu Xun usually attacks you, so be wary of him.  Also take out 
Ram's, they are annoying as well.  When that's all done and over with, go 
after Sun Quan, killing Zhou Tai on the way.

Q and A
__________________________________________________________________
Q.
I can't get her 4th weapon!
A.
Make sure its on hard, or chaos mode, and make sure you have 300 or more 
kills, before going by Cao Pi for the Cutscene.  There are two cutscenes in 
this mission, one about an Ambush, and one with her killing enemies with 
her musou, make sure its the latter of the two.
