-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Why Should I use Sun Jian?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sun Jian like most leaders, has a sword. All of his attacks focuses mostly 
in the front. His stats are average, although his musou attack can be very 
damaging since the enemies stay on the ground when getting hit. Plus you need 
to complete his musou mode in order to get Zuo Ci and Zhang Jiao, so why not 
get it over with?




-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Unlocking

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In order to unlock Sun Jian, you must first complete any 4 musou modes in Wu.




-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Move Set

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A some of Sun Jian's move have been change, but most of Sun Jian's move stayed 
the same as it was from Dynasty Warriors 4. Like everybody else he has a new
SSSST attack and jump charge. He has a new C5 and his ending for his ture 
musou is also different

S: A diagonal slash to the right
SS: A horizontal swing to the left
SSS: A horizontal swing to the right
SSSS: A horizontal swing to the left
SSSSS: A downward diagonal swing to the right
SSSSSS: A upward diagonal swing to the left

Your weapon have to evolution capable in order to use the follow attacks:
SSSSSSS: A horizontal swing to the left
SSSSSSSS: A horizontal swing to the right
SSSSSSSSS: Does a backstab

T: Sun Jian moves forward spinning around as he goes.

ST: Sun Jian swings his sword in an upward motion, hitting them in the air,
just enough to juggle them.

SST: Sun Jian moves forward slashing frontward diagonally to the left and 
right and finally a horizontally slash at the end that stuns anybody that 
gets hit.

SSST: Turns back and literally does a backstab on whoever gets hit by it,
has the fly away effect.

SSSST: Sun Jian lets out a burst of fire (doesn't lit them on fire though)
causing everbody around him of him to fly into the air.

SSSSST: Sun Jian swings his sword in a downard diagonal movement knocking
everybody hit with it away.

Musou attack: A seris of diagonal slashes then moves forward and with his
sword in a horizontal position.

True Musou: Like his normal Musou but at the end does a upward slice and
stomps on the ground causing everybody that gets hit by it into the air.

Mounted Attack: Swings to left and right with his sword consecutively.

Mounted Charge: Swings his sword from left and right.

Mounted Musou: Swings his sword to left and right like mounted attack
but at a faster rate.

Dash Attack: Sun Jian swings his sword his sword in front of him.

Parry attack: A quick horizontal slash to the right.

Jump attack: A downward diagonal slash to the left.

Jump Charge: Does two downward slashes then flips and does another slash while
doing that.

5. Weapons

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Weapons are back to it was in Dynasty Warriors 3, if you don't know yet, in 
order to get better weapons, you either have to defeat Officers or destroy 
boxes to get Treasure boxes in order to gain a new weapon.(By the way, 
weights for weapons #1-3 are random). In order to get your last and of coarse
best weapon, you need to fulfill certain requirements in order to gain it.

Tiger Sword:

Power: +3
Attacks: 4 (How many consecutive square hits you can use)
Weight: Random (How fast you can wield your weapon depends on the weight)
Attributes: Random

Tiger Claw:

Power: +8
Attacks: 5
Weight: Random
Attributes: Random

Lone Tiger:

Power: +12
Attack: 6
Weight: Random
Attributes: Random

Savage Tiger:

Power: +34
Attacks: 6
Weight: Light
Fill: 18
Def: 16
Life: 15
Horse: 16
Musou: 15

How to Get: 

Stage: Battle of Si Shui Gate (Must be done on Hard Mode)

How to Get: Defeat Lu Bu within 5 minutes from when he appears on the battle
field.

Strategy: First take out Fan Chou and the defence base next to you. You'll hear
that "Sun Jian needs supply for his troops" or something to the line. Just go 
to the upper right part of the map and take out the supply base. Then go ahead 
to Si Shui gate. Lu Bu will come out of hiding once you get there. You have 5
minutes to finish him so act quickly. Just keep doing c5 over and over again 
(if you have fire orb equipped, then he'll keep losing HP when you juggle him)
eventually he'll get a 2x attack bonus. Just keep hitting him when you have a
chance and don't let him hit you. When he's almost dead he'll activate musou
rage, just run away from him, intil he finished with it. With that, just do 
what you do usually and finish off. A "Valuable item has been found" message 
should appear in your screen now. If you don't know where it is, just go check
your battlelog to find it. After getting it, just go kill Hua Xiong to finish
the stage. Congratualtions on getting your new Savage Tiger! (If you did 
everything right of course)

11. Frequently ask questions

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Whats the best place to max out Sun Jian in order to get his 4th weapon easier?

I recommend doing any 5 star stage, as the officers give out the best stat
increasers.

What are the best items for Sun Jian?

What I gave him was:

1. Tiger Amulet: More power means faster rate of killing people
2. Peacock Urn: More life means the longer you can stay alive
3. Tortoise Amulet: This along with Peacock Urn means more defense against 
enemy hits.
4. Wind Scroll: Although not necessary, its recommended to use this because 
better reach = more killing.
5. Ginseng (or whatever comes to your mind), I picked this because it means
faster refilling of my musou which = more killing, but hey, its your choice.
