    1.) Introduction
    Thank you for reading this guide. This is my first guide and it's all about
    Toshiie and a perfect way to customize his weapon and also other better
    strategies to play as Toshiie. There are also dialogues for fun. I hope
    everyone can read and understand since English is not my main language in my
    country. So, I really need your comments and suggestions. Feel free to e-mail
    me or ask me on the board.
    Note that all of these strategies and weapon setups are my style. Probably
    useful to some players and if you don't like it, you can press alt+F4 now.
    2.) Toshiie Maeda’s Bio and History
    Below is Toshiie's history and lifetime
    *Taken from Sengoku Jidai Database*
    Toshiie is the seventh son of Toshimasa Maeda, born at 1538-1599. He serves
    faithfully Nobunaga Oda And Hideyoshi Toyotomi until his and the former’s
    dying day. He was known as the Master of Yari (Japanese Spear) and named Yari
    No Mataza (Mataza of the Spear). Toshiie became more famous after joining most
    of important battles, such as Tetorigawa and Anegawa. He went on to serve
    Hideyoshi and continued his support for Hideyoshi in Battle of Komaki-Nagakute
    and became an esteemed member of Hideyoshi's council.
    He has a close relationship with other named warriors such as Katsuie Shibata,
    Mitsuhide Akechi and Kinoshita Tokichiro. Toshiie was named by Hideyoshi as
    one Of The Toyotomi Five Regents. Unfortunately, he died mere a year after
    receiving that name.
    In Warriors Orochi 2, Toshiie doesn’t play a big role here. Only in Ji Castle,
    he was surrounded by a numerous army of Sima Yi. He fights with Magoichi to
    defeat Sima Yi.
    3.) Why Toshiie?
    Personally, I liked Toshiie because he's cool. He got two spears and a spiky
    sword. His movesets aren't that bad and not too difficult to control. His C4
    and C6 are pretty useful to push peons if you're in a tight situation. I bet
    you'll love Toshiie when you play as him and press the Circle button. I mean,
    MUSOU. It's similiar to Nagamasa but it's two times faster. If you have maxed
    him out, enemy officers will gone in flash. Toshiie is a Power category
    character. He is fun to play with.

          (Defeat 70 enemies, including 3 officers)
          (Defeat 100 enemies while maintaining 50% life without using musou)
    |4e.) Strategies|
    Strategies is a new feature in Warriors Orochi 2. Gamers must fulfill the
    requirements to activate characters strategies. Yes. Each character has one
    strategies and gamers can execute those strategies anytime to help themselves
    from trouble.
    Face Off - Reduces the damage inflicted upon all allied forces
    Requirement - Defeat 300 enemies
    You know what it means. Reduce the damage of all allied officers and troops.
    It’s quite tough to get 300 kills in low level but when you’re strong enough,
    300 kills shouldn’t be a problem to you. Why? Because we are WARRIORS!
    |4f.) Teammate  |
    Yes! Maybe Toshiie needs help from his friends when he's in trouble. Here's
    some warriors that can help Toshiie:
    Sun Jian - His R1! Remember?
    Sun Wukong - The next Mr. Transporter
    Keiji Maeda - Brother?
    Why Sun Jian?
    Sun Jian's R1 can convert his life into a 10 second Musou. So, it's pretty
    useful for Toshiie's musou. Imagine Orochi being whipped by Toshiie for 10
    seconds plus your musou gauge. Yummy!
    Why Sun Wukong?
    Please. Don't make me laugh. You know he got his magic cloud and it's faster
    than Red Hare. So, ask Wukong if you ever need a lift. Plus, he's GOD when
    maxed. If you're into trouble, time to add another notch to Mr. Whacky!
    Why Keiji Maeda?
    Keiji Maeda is not necessary. Only if you're in a tight spot, his R1 can send
    the enemies into Mars lol, but I think Wukong is enough to deal the trouble
    makers. Sun Jian bores me sometimes so I add Keiji for fun.
    5.) Weapon Setup (Updated)
    Okay. Here’s the most important of all. A GOOD WEAPON SETUP! I have found that
    Toshiie can be used as two types: Crowd cleaner or Dueler (1 vs 1 or with
    officers). Let’s start with the crowd cleaner.
    I always use his C4 to push the enemies away. If you’re lucky, you could use
    Bolt element and kill all enemies at once. Of course Range is needed. How can
    you make lots of KO counts when you can only kill some enemies? ‘Crush them in
    one blow’. Slay and Rage are useful here, so don't forget.
    Yeah. This is what you’re waiting for, right? The God thing, Almighty.
    Personally, Resolve Lv.2 and Stability Lv.3 are perfect for him as a crowd
    cleaner. I’m not sure about Supremacy Lv.3 but I guess Evasion Lv.2 is better.
    Why Stability? Because you wouldn’t want to get hit while playing in Chaos as
    a crowd cleaner doing the charge attacks. And don't forget to add Resolve
    here or your mood will change dramatically.
    Here's the list:
    | Elements  |  Almighty  |
    |  Bolt     |  Resolve   |
    |  Range    |  Stability |
    |  Flash    |  Evasion   |
    |  Might    |            |
    |  Rage     |            |
    |  Agility  |            |
    |  Slay     |            |
    |  Brave    |            |
    *Note - C4, C8 and C6 is good for crowd cleaning, especially when Range is
            max. But I have to say that C4 is the best to wipe all enemies
            around you. C6 is not so bad either. C8 or C5 is only to wash
            enemies in front of you (In group).
    Mission accomplished! Nope, we still have a Dueler.
    Imagine a horde of officers surrounds you and give absolutely no chance to
    attack, one thing in your mind, Revival. Charge attacks like C4 is quite
    useful for this kind of situation. If you're facing more than two officers,
    use C6 to buy some time and concentrate each at a time. Don't forget to add
    Range and Flash. Slay, Brave and Might is a must. It'll help you increase your
    damage. I don't recommend Multi, because maybe sometimes you will miss some
    attacks, giving your opponents a high chance to counter attack. It's up to
    I thought it would be good if Toshiie can use his musou to kill enemy
    officer quickly. Sadly, it works only once and you have to recharge your
    musou gauge. Troublesome, isn't it? Charge attacks is the only way. Wait
    a minute! I am totally forgotten about Sun Jian. His R1! Hiyah and grind
    the enemy officers to dust. If you're lucky, you can hit 2 officers at
    the same time! Please, if you're going to use musou, make sure you are CLOSE 
    enough to the enemy officer, because if you're far away, the damage dealt will
    be very small.
    Here’s the list
    | Elements  |  Almighty  |
    |  Brave    |  Evasion   |
    |  Bolt     |  Revival   |
    |  Flash    |  Resolve   |
    |  Might    |            |
    |  Rage     |            |
    |  Agility  |            |
    |  Slay     |            |
    |  Range    |            |
    *Note - Those Elements that I've listed is my style and I use it on all of my
            characters and it works 80%. If you have any problems or other than
            that, please tell me.
