    ===============================================================================
    
     This...is my boomstick!
        
     If you want to smack people around and blow the crap out of them with
     assorted cannon shots and a FRICKING QUAD LASER BEAM, Ieyasu is your man.
     His fun variety of slash slash boom boom attacks will serve you well from
     the beginning up through chaos mode.  Plus, he wears a silly hat.

                              2) Unlocking Ieyasu Tokugawa

                                   4) Getting Equipped
    
    ===============================================================================
     Recommended Weapon Attributes
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     The first five attributes should be as follows.
     
     Bolt               Continues combos, stuns enemies, keeps launched baddies 
                        nearby for more punishment.
    
     Slay               Too useful not to include.
        
     Agility            Because it doesn't bug any of Ieyasu's charges, why not?
        
     Flash              Guard busting is a necessity on higher difficulties.
        
     Might              Cranks up attack power.
    
     
                        ________________________________________
     
     
     For the last slots, choose from the following depending on how you plan to 
     play Ieyasu and whether you want to emphasize endurance or attack strength.
        
     Drain              Restores health.  Fills efficiently with C4.
                    
     Multi              Bring on the gundam army of pain.  Increases C4 damage.
        
     Brave              For more anti-officer oomph.
        
     Ice                Non-frozen enemies will fly away from Ieyasu's death beam
                        before it finishes.  Ice keeps them stuck in place for the 
                        full duration.  It is also nice for safety in dense crowds.
    
     Air                If you like to juggle with charge attacks.
     
                        ________________________________________
     
     
     I don't suggest Absorb.  Ieyasu uses musou infrequently, and that weapon slot
     would be better reserved for attack boosting or health restoration.  If 
     Ieyasu will be fighting for long periods of time without musou recovery from
     drops or team switching, he should equip abilities to lengthen or refill his 
     musou gauge.
        
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Recommended Abilities
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     Regardless of setup, these five are essential.
     
     Impulse            Slow and steady may win the race, but more foot speed is
                        always helpful.
                    
     Fortitude          Even tough guys can use more defense, especially on high
                        difficulty.
    
     Power              Jacks up Ieyasu's attack power, including the amperage of 
                        the laser cannon.
        
     Boost              Makes perfect sense for a character reliant on charge 
                        attacks.
        
     Potence            It always hurts to hit extra hard.  Har har har.
     
                        ________________________________________
     
     
     Consider any of the following depending on your play style and the rest of
     Ieyasu's setup.
        
     Conserve           Decreases the cost of musou-consuming attacks.
    
     Awakening          Pumps up any musou-consuming attack.  The bonus stacks on 
                        top of everything else related.
    
     Adrenalin          When running solo on high difficulty without Drain.  The 
                        increased attack power of a Drain-less weapon may be a 
                        worthwhile tradeoff for an ability slot.  Don't forget to 
                        break your combos periodically because Adrenalin only fills 
                        once when you hit 10.
                     
     Focus              Lengthens the musou bar.
        
     Refill             Restores a chunk of musou every several seconds.  Of 
                        limited use until it reaches max level.
                      
     Vitality           More health comes in handy.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Recommended Setups
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Ieyasu can work well with a variety of weapon and ability setups depending on
     how he will be played and how health and musou will be restored.  If you plan
     to swap out or pick up recovery drops, you may wish to omit health and
     musou replenishment in favor of more attack power.  
        
     To Ice or not?  Depends on whether you prefer a chance of swift officer death
     or more steady damage from charge attacks.
        
     For self-replenishment with minimal dependence on recovery drops, I 
     suggest any of the following.
    
     Endurance-Focused ------------------------------------------------------------
        
        Good to start with because it offers more room for error.
        
        Weapon          Bolt / Flash / Slay / Drain / Multi / Agility / Might /
                        Ice or Air
    
        Abilities       Impulse / Fortitude / Power / Boost / Potence / Vitality /
                        Refill
                    
        
     Attack Power Max -------------------------------------------------------------
        
        As you improve at avoiding damage with Ieyasu, drop Drain in favor of
        Adrenalin.  You will be getting hit infrequently, so there will be little
        concern about breaking combos to survive.  Vitality becomes optional with 
        practice and high character level.
    
        Weapon          Bolt / Flash / Slay / Brave / Multi / Agility / Might /
                        Ice or Air
    
        Abilities       Impulse / Fortitude / Power / Boost / Potence / 
                        Adrenalin / Vitality or Refill

                                    5) Battle Advice
    
    ===============================================================================
    
     For examples of how to play Ieyasu, I recommend calbee219's videos made for 
     the Warriors Orochi solo chaos tier list evaluation.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     General Fighting Notes
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     As his tag line says, Ieyasu's style is slow and steady.  His laser attack
     will quickly demolish frozen officers, but he generally works through enemies
     at a measured pace.
     
     When enemies are close, rely on C4.  Time Ieyasu's blast charges to
     interrupt incoming foes.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Move Set Analysis
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     Ieyasu's S string offers a mix of melee attacks and long-range blasts.  Apart
     from the straight-ahead stab, his spear swings are fast and protective.  
     Because charge attacks do the most damage by far and Ieyasu has distance 
     charges, you probably won't use his long-range shots all that much.
        
     Any charge involving a cannon blast has slight lag afterward as Ieyasu puts
     the cannon away.
     
     *  indicates Ieyasu's most useful attacks.
      
        C1 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        
        Has a long charge-up time and no elemental activation.  If I want to time
        a poot cloud type interruption, I'll go with a later charge that does more
        damage.
        
     
        C2 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        
        Another slow charge with no elemental activation.  Next please.
        
        
        C3 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        
        This might be useful for interruptions.  I don't work with it often.
        
    
     *  C4 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      
        An excellent staple for laying the smackdown on crowds and officers.  It
        is usable from the start and fast with Agility, and it covers at least 240
        degrees.
    
        
     *  C5 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        
        Useful for an Air-based offense because it sets up a juggle.  In general,
        this is a decent interrupter if there's no time for a C6.
    
        
     *  C6 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        
        The hefty blast radius and stunning effect are great for setting traps and
        herding enemies at doorways.  This one hurts like crazy, too.
        
        
     *  C7 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
        Handy for sniping distant targets.
    
        
        C8 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        
        Entertainingly reminiscent of Zhang Jiao, but it takes a while to get to.
        More for fun than anything else.
        
    
        Jump + T ------------------------------------------------------------------
        
        Possibly helpful, though I don't use it much because there's a bit of lag 
        as Ieyasu pulls his spear out of the ground.
    
    
     *  R1 ------------------------------------------------------------------------
        
        The awesomeness of laser-flavored whoopass should be self-evident.  It can
        be focused on officers or rotated to annoy crowds, and its musou 
        consumption is not bad given its power.  There is brief start-up time 
        during which Ieyasu can be hit out of the attack, so use it when you have
        some space.
        
    ===============================================================================
    			
                           6) Analysis of Fighting Aptitude
    
    ===============================================================================
    
     Ieyasu safely fights with enough aggression to handle a wide variety of 
     situations, including solo runs of challenging chaos battles.
     
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Strengths
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     As a power type with high attack and defense, Ieyasu can steadily chew 
     through hordes without taking too much damage.  C4 keeps him healthy with 
     Drain.
        
     Ieyasu has safe ways to approach annoying foes.  Snipe with C7 or lure them
     into a cannon blast charge.  C4 can interrupt running enemies as well.
     
     Frozen general + musou power = swift death.  Even if Ieyasu doesn't freeze an 
     officer, a few good C4 whacks will dispatch them with reasonable efficiency.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Shortcomings
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     Ieyasu is somewhat of a pincushion in high-firepower situations, like the Mt.
     Tenno ambush.  He doesn't have any quick stomp type moves, so he has to run 
     over and smack whoever is shooting him.  Because he can attack through damage,
     he doesn't have a terrible time of this, but he's going to get hit.
    
     His fastest general kill - lasering a frozen officer - is dependent on luck.
        
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Recommended Teammates
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    	
     Any favorite archer squisher - I usually send in Cao Ren to do this sort of
     dirty work.  His high defense, crowd exploding C2-ex, and C1 stomp are great
     for dispatching firepower in mixed crowds.

     Stage
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     Wu Story 1
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Requirements
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Do not include Sun Ce in your team.
    
     Within 10 minutes, do the following:
        
     - Defeat Li Yan, Liu Feng, Wang Ping, Hideaki Tokuyama, Zhang Yi, and Cheng 
     Yin.
     - Get 200 KO's.
     - Trigger the cut scene between Sun Ce and Ranmaru Mori.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Recommended Method
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
     This one's simple, as your allies don't tend to kill off any of the targeted
     generals for you and there are plenty of enemies to squish.  Just go defeat 
     everyone, getting your 200 KO's in the process.  Then lead Sun Ce up to the 
     enemy main camp by clearing out all the baddies around him.  The item will
     appear shortly after the cut scene.

     Item Location

     The History of the Tang Dynasty appears in the eastern path leading up to the
     northeastern area of the map.

     If approaching an enemy, give them a chance to talk before you squish them.  
     Some dialogs require certain team setups or approaching the characters as 
     Ieyasu.

        Sun Ce: "You and I are on the same boat, so we may as well get along."

        those left behind at all times."
        Sun Ce: "Hey, why does everyone keep treating me like I'm a powder keg?  I
        know that!"

        Approach Ling Tong as Ieyasu:
        
        Ling Tong: "You don't seem the sort to be won over by a snake, so what's 
        your story?"
        Ieyasu: "I have nothing to say to you."
        Ling Tong: "Whatever.  Just take care of Sun Ce, okay?"

        Approach Gan Ning as Ieyasu:
        
        Gan Ning: "You're one lucky man to be fighting with Sun Ce."
        Ieyasu: "I would not have thought one fighting against him would think so,
        though."
        Gan Ning: "You got that right!"
    
    
     Wu Story 3 ------------------------------------------------------------------
    
        Approach Gan Ning as Ieyasu:
       
        Gan Ning: "Ring the bell!  It's punchin' time!"

     Wu Story 4 ------------------------------------------------------------------
    
        Rescue Sun Jian:
    
        Sun Jian: "Are you here to fight with us?  Thank you for your help.  
        You've saved our land of Wu!"
        Ieyasu: "The fight for a peaceful future is not over yet."
    
        Approach Pang De:
    
        Pang De: "My halberds will not allow your entry!"

        Sun Ce: "Arghh, we're surrounded!"
        Ieyasu: "I will hold the enemy at bay, while you escape."
        Sun Jian: "That is my place.  It has always been my duty to protect the 
        weak."
        Ieyasu: "But I can endure!"
        Sun Jian: "Worry not!  They shall not break me, for I fight with the 
        tiger's rage!  You heard me!  Now go!"
        Sun Ce: "Understood.  I'm gone!"
        Ieyasu: "Stubborn fool!"
