Ever since I played a demo of Dynasty Warriors 3, I've been a big fan of the
series. I've played many of the expansion games (Xtreme Legends, Empires, etc.)
as well as some of the other games developed by Koei that revolve around the
Three Kingdoms era. Not only do I enjoy the games, but they got me interested
in the actual history behind them. I've read the full Three Kingdoms book, and
have read up a lot on the actual events of this era as well as the history of
many of the characters. So it only made sense to me to write an FAQ/Walkthrough
for what is probably (in my opinion) the best of the Dynasty Warriors games
thus far - Dynasty Warriors 5. Don't get me wrong, the ones before it were
great too (haven't played anything above 5 yet) but I always thought the fifth
had the perfect balance of all the games.

Being that this is one of my all-time favorite games and that I've already
played it for countless hours before writing this FAQ (and now countless more
while writing it...) I've tried to go as in-depth as possible for this FAQ. So
if you see anything that's wrong or you think I'm missing, please shoot me an
email at:

kmfx24 [at] yahoo [dot] com

Please include the words "Dynasty Warriors 5" in the title so I can quickly
sort through my email and find what I need. Any comments and criticism are
welcome, so long as it's constructive. Please don't email me asking a question
that is already covered in this FAQ (such as how do I get "X" weapon or "X"
item - unless the strategy I have is completely wrong, which it shouldn't be.)
If you provide me with any additional information that I then add to this guide
I will certainly give you credit.

Version 1.3 (09/15/2012) - Small update - fixed a few spelling and grammar
 errors, and I added the wikipedia article that I used to gather some
 information for the history in the credits section of this FAQ.

Version 1.2 (02/26/2012) - Revised the formatting a bit. Also changed my stance
 on posting this guide on websites other than GameFAQs, -> PLEASE READ UPDATED
 LEGAL INFO! <-

Version 1.1 (11/08/2011) - An email from Daryl Engel pointed out an error in
 the requirement I had down for Sun Ce's forth weapon. I have since corrected
 this with what I _believe_ to be the correct requirement. See section UW10
 for more information.

Version 1.0 (10/22/2011) - Finally finished. Took me a lot longer then I had
 originally planned, mostly due to laziness on my part. But I knew I had to
 finish this before BF3 came out or else I would never get it done. And
 thankfully I did, with 3 days to spare! I'll probably make a few updates here
 and there with some spelling errors and such (as I'm sure this guide is
 riddled with them) but I don't see any major additions in content any time
 soon. I'm very Dynasty Warrior'd out right now.

If this is your first time playing any Dynasty Warrior game, there is quite a
bit to learn in terms of actual game play. And even if you have played any of
the previous games, there are some new additions to this game as you probably
would have guessed. In this section I'll go over basic information that I
believe all players to this game should know.

**NOTE**
While I know most of the general history behind the Three Kingdoms era a lot
of information here - especially names and dates - I got from the Wikipedia
article on the Three Kingdoms. The link is in the credits section if you want
to read more information about this era, which I highly suggest you do, as
not only is this period in history very interesting, but it will help you
better appreciate the story as you play the game (or at least I think so.)


Dynasty Warriors 5 takes place during a time in China's history known as the
"Three Kingdoms" era. Most scholars and historians consider this time period
to be from the start of the Yellow Turban Rebellion around 184 A.D. to the
fall of the Wu Kingdom by the Jin Dynasty in 280 A.D. Academically speaking,
however, the start of this era is considered to be the foundation of the Wei
Empire in 220 A.D. None the less, DW5 also includes events starting back from
the Yellow Turban Rebellion so that is where I shall begin.

Many problems plagued China during the ending rule of the Han Dynasty. During
the rule of Emperor Huan and Emperor Ling there was much protest and rebellions
among the people due to political oppression and economic decline. Most of the
time these rebellions weren't too successful and they usually ended up in
executions of many protestors. However in 184 A.D. Zhang Jiao along with his
two brothers Zhang Liang and Zhang Bao led a large rebellion against the Han
Empire that would become known as the Yellow Turban Rebellion (named for the
color of the scarves worn around the rebels heads.)

The Emperor Ling ordered generals Huangfu Song, Lu Zhi, and Zhu Jun to lead the
Han army against the rebels, and also ordered local governments to supply
soldiers to the cause. This course of action was successful, and eventually
the main portion of the Yellow Turbans was defeated and the rebellion
ultimately failed. It was after the rebellion that the Emperor Ling gave
administrative powers to local governments in attempts to more easily
extinguish smaller raiding parties that began popping up throughout China.
These local governments were able to command a regional military and eventually
were able to rule independently of the central government.

Shortly after these events Emperor Ling died. Now the struggle for power was
between a eunuch faction and some court officials led by He Jin. He Jin plotted
with warlord Yuan Shao to kill the eunuchs, but they learned of his plan and
had him assassinated. Yuan Shao's army eventually invaded the capital of
Luoyang and killed the eunuchs. This breakdown of a central government is what
brought upon many civil wars that eventually led to the formation of the Three
Kingdoms era.

After the killings of the eunuchs a warlord by the name of Dong Zhuo entered
Luoyang with a large army and took control of the imperial court. Dong Zhuo
threw out the current emperor, Emperor Shao, and replaced him with Emperor
Xian. Dong Zhuo rose to power in the imperial court and declared himself
Chancellor. He ruled with tyranny and an iron fist, causing a coalition led
by Yuan Shao to attempt to overthrow Dong Zhuo's power in 190 A.D. Eventually
Dong Zhuo's reign of power was ended when he was assassinated by his adopted
son, Lu Bu.

Following this, the land was divided amongst many different warlords fighting
for power. Yuan Shao occupied northern Ye, Cao Cao was located south of him,
Sun Ce was establishing his rule underneath Yuan Shu in southern Yangtze, Liu
Zhang controlled the western Yi, and the northwest was controlled by several
smaller warlords such as Ma Teng. The Emperor Xian eventually fled from the
remaining of Dong Zhuo's followers and sought refuge with Cao Cao. Cao Cao was
suggested by his advisor Xun Yu to have Emperor Xian move the capital from
Luoyang to Xuchang since Luoyang had been burned down by Dong Zhuo during his
retreat. This was done and Cao Cao was appointed chancellor.

In the south, Yuan Shu defeated several warlords and thus declared himself
emperor of the Cheng Dynasty, much to the protest his subordinate Sun Ce. A
coalition was then led against Yuan Shu, which itself included Sun Ce, and he
was defeated. Lu Bu, who had allied himself with Liu Bei following the
assassination of Dong Zhuo, betrayed Liu Bei and seized control of Xu Province.
He then formed an alliance with Yuan Shu's remaining forces. Liu Bei fled to
Cao Cao, and with both forces combined they led an assault against Lu Bu.
Lu Bu was defeated and executed on Cao Cao's orders.

Cao Cao later learned of an assassination attempt on himself, with Liu Bei
being part of the plan. Liu Bei successfully fled to Yuan Shao in the north
for refuge. At this time, Cao Cao decided to set his sights on the northern
area of Ye, and he attacked Yuan Shao. Cao Cao won the decisive battle at
Guan Du, and eventually all of Yuan Shao's forces were defeated, leaving Cao
Cao ruler of northern Ye. Liu Bei then fled to Jing Province and sought refuge
with Liu Biao.

Now in an attempt to unify the land, Cao Cao marched on the southern province
of Yangtze. Sun Quan, who was now ruler of Yangtze after his brother Sun Ce
was fatally wounded in battle, secured and alliance with Liu Bei. Both Sun Quan
and Liu Bei's forces met Cao Cao's much larger naval force at Red Cliffs in
the winter of 208. After a fire attack destroyed the majority of Cao Cao's
fleet, he was forced to retreat, resulting in a great victory for the vastly
outnumbered allied forces.

Cao Cao returned north and focused on attacking the northwestern territories.
Liu Bei advanced on the western province of Yi according to the advice of his
strategist and advisor Zhuge Liang. Liu Bei successfully secured the lands of
Ye after defeating Liu Zhang, and he appointed Guan Yu in charge of the Jing
Province. This land was then later attacked by Lu Meng of Wu, and Guan Yu was
captured and executed on Sun Quan's orders.

Following Cao Cao's death in 220, his son, Cao Pi, forced Emperor Xian (who had
since then was essentially a puppet emperor being used by Cao Cao) to step
down from the throne and officially declared himself emperor of the Wei
Kingdom. This move officially ended the Han Dynasty. One year later Liu Bei
then declared himself the emperor of the Shu Kingdom in an attempt to restore
the Han Dynasty. Later that year Sun Quan was declared as the King of Wu. This
is now when we see the official formation of the Three Kingdoms era.

In an attempt to get revenge on Wu for the death of Guan Yu, Liu Bei declared
war on Wu and the two armies met at Yi Ling. The result was a major defeat for
Shu, and Liu Bei retreated back to Yi province where he died shortly after.
His son, Liu Chan, took over as ruler of Shu. After the battle of Yi Ling both
Shu and Wu focused the majority of their attack against their common enemy,
Wei, instead of each other. However the southwestern territories of Yi, led by
the Nanman people, started to revolt against Shu. Zhuge Liang led an army down
to silence the rebellions, and after a number of battles fought against the
leader Meng Huo, they eventually quelled the rebellions.

Zhuge Liang led Shu through several attempts at capturing the northern
territories of Wei, most of which were unsuccessful. Zhuge Liang eventually
died during the battle at Wu Zhang Plains, causing the Shu army to retreat.
Wei strategist Sima Yi pursued the retreating Shu army, but doubtful as to if
Zhuge Liang had really died or if this was another trap of his, he eventually
pulled back, allowing Shu to successfully retreat.

Around 230 A.D. there was much turmoil within the state of Wei. Power was
shared between the commander of Wei Cao Shuang and Sima Yi, however Cao Shuang
did not trust Sima Yi, and eventually started to strip him of power. However,
Sima Yi led a coup against Cao Shuang and successfully stripped him of his
power and became the ruler of Wei. Wei would then go on to eventually conquer
the Kingdom of Shu after the Shu capital Cheng Du was taken by an invasion of
Deng Ai of Wei. In 263 Shu ruler Liu Chan surrendered, effectively ending the
Shu Kingdom.

In 264, Sima Yan, son of Sima Zhao (who was son of Sima Yi) seized the throne
of Wei held by Cao Huan, putting an end to the Kingdom of Wei. He then
established the Kingdom of Jin, which would go on to bring about the era of
the Jin Dynasty.

With only two kingdoms remaining - Wu and Jin - Sima Yan ordered the invasion
and destruction of the Wu territories. Since the death of Sun Quan in 252, the
Wu Empire was declining and growing weak. Under intense pressure from Jin
invasions, Wu collapsed in 280 A.D., leaving Jin as the victor in unifying the
land and bringing about the Jin Dynasty.

GAME MODES                                                               [MODE]
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

There are three main game modes: Musou mode, Free mode, and Challenge mode.
Each mode offers a different variety of game play, with different objectives.
Listed below is a brief explanation of each game mode.

  .------------------------------------------------------------------------.
  |                               Musou Mode                               |
  `------------------------------------------------------------------------´

In musou mode you select an officer from one of the kingdoms (Shu, Wei, Wu, or
Other) and you play through that characters 'storyline' - a collection of
battles that plays out in a story with said character being the main center
point. What battles you'll play depends on which character you'll select.
Generally speaking, any battles that your character plays a big/important role
in will be in their musou mode. Musou mode can be played on easy, normal, hard,
or chaos difficulty. 

For more information about each characters individual musou stages, please
refer to the musou mode section of this guide (section 5.0).

  .------------------------------------------------------------------------.
  |                               Free Mode                                |
  `------------------------------------------------------------------------´

In free mode you can select an individual battle and play through that specific
battle one time. Upon winning the battle you will return to the main menu.
All battles can be played on free mode, although they are not all available to 
be played directly from the start. To unlock certain battles on free mode you 
must first play through them on musou mode. Officer development is the same in
both free and musou mode - that is, any stats your officer gains while playing 
in either of these modes will be reflected if you play with them in the other 
mode.

For more information about each individual free mode battle, including
complete walkthroughs of all playable sides of each battle, please refer to the
free mode section of this guide (section 6.0).

  .------------------------------------------------------------------------.
  |                             Challenge Mode                             |
  `------------------------------------------------------------------------´

Challenge mode is sort of like an arcade mode, in which you're playing to meet
a certain objective, and you score is reflected in a number of points. There
are four different courses available for play under challenge mode:

SCREENS                                                                  [SCRN]
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

There's two types of screens here that I'll be talking about - the game screen
and the information screen. Both of these screens will tell you important
information about the battle that you're currently in. The game screen is just
that - it's the screen where your character is, where all the action is. This
is all the stuff you see when you're running around in a battle killing
enemies. The information screen is what you see when you press the START button
during the battle. Below I'll breakdown all the different things you'll see
on each of these screens, and exactly what they mean.

  .------------------------------------------------------------------------.
  |                              Game Screen                               |
  `------------------------------------------------------------------------´

This is the screen where you will be controlling your character and fighting
the enemy during the battle. It's a little hard to describe where everything
is on this screen without an actual picture, so bear with me here. I'll start
from the top left of the screen, and work my way around clockwise. Take note
that in two player mode the screen is split horizontally, but both players will
still have the exact same information on each section of the screen.


Enemy information
-------
This is displayed at the very top left of your screen, and it will display the
enemy information of the last soldier/officer that you have attacked. Their
small avatar will appear in a circle, and next to that will be their health
bar, their rank, what officer they're under, and how much morale that officers
unit has. The more stars, the higher the morale and vice versa. If the enemies
health is greater than the length of the health bar, it will be displayed by
a lighter red over a darker red color.


Combos
-------
As you perform combos, you will see a "X Combo" ("X" being the number of combos
you have currently performed) appear on the left side of your screen, under
the enemy information. This will not appear until you have a combo of 5 hits or
greater.


Battle morale
-------
At the top right hand corner of your screen is the battle morale bar. This
shows how much morale each army has. The blue is your morale, the red is the
enemy morale. As you defeat officers and complete certain objectives, morale
will increase.


Time remaining
-------
This is located directly underneath the battle morale bar, however it only
appears on the game screen when the battle timer is below 10 minutes. Every
battle has a certain amount of time it needs to be completed in, and if that
timer reaches zero it's game over.


Map
-------
The map is located underneath the time remaining and battle morale. It takes
up a good portion of the right hand corner of the map, and it shows you where
both all of your units are and where all of the enemy units are. There are two
types of maps you can switch between by pressing R2: the complete map and a
zoomed in map. The complete map shows you the entire battlefield, while the
zoomed in map just shows the area surrounding you. There are several different
bits of information you can gather from the map:

 - Enemy location: Enemy units are represented by red dots. Enemy officers are
                   also represented by red dots, however they're a much more
                   brighter color of red, making them stand out more.

 - Friendly location: Friendly units are represented by blue dots. Friendly
                      officers, like enemy officers, are a much more brighter
                      color of blue.

 - Commander location: Both the enemy and friendly commander are designated by
                       a lighter color dot just like regular officers, however
                       their dot will also have a glow surrounding it.

 - Your location on the map: Your location is indicated by the big green arrow
                             that moves, showing where you are (as if that
                             wasn't obvious enough...)

 - Bodyguard location: Bodyguards are indicated by a green dot on the map.

 - Steed location: If you have a harness equipped and you get off your horse,
                   you can see where it is by looking for a yellowish colored
                   dot on the map. This only appears when the horse is not
                   being ridden.


K.O. Count
-------
This appears in the lower right hand corner of the screen and is a counter that
keeps track of how many enemy soldiers you've killed.


Character information
-------
In the lower left hand corner of the screen is your characters information. It
has a small avatar of your character in the corner, and next to it is their
life bar and musou bar. The life bar is the larger top bar, while the musou
bar is the thinner lower bar. As you lose life the color of the life bar will
go from green to yellow to red. Below the musou bar will be a number, this is
how many arrows you currently have (20 is the default starting number, the
maximum is 99.) Next to the arrow count is your bodyguard icon, which displays
what command your bodyguard is currently set to follow (see the bodyguard
section [3.6] for more information.) This can be changed by hitting select.
Above the health bar is where any temporary abilities gained from items will
be displayed. This includes the following:

 - Yellow bar: Offense x2 (30 seconds.)
 - Green bar: Defense x2 (30 seconds.)
 - Blue bar: Speed increase (30 seconds.)
 - Pink bar: Musou time increase (10 seconds.)

For more information about what items give these boosts see the in-game items
section (section 7.1) of this guide.


Battlefield Message
-------
This is a bar that runs the length of the screen and will appear over the
character information when the conditions on the battlefield change. This can
be anything from morale being raised or lowered or an enemy/friendly officer
being defeated. You can check a log of the battlefield messages on the
information screen.


No Entry symbols
-------
If you try to enter an area off limits on the map, a "No Entry" symbol will
appear in the middle of the screen. There are three types:

 - Man: This is a symbol of a running man with a dashed circle overtop him.
        This means that whatever area you're trying to enter is off limits
        completely.

 - Horse: This is a symbol of a horse with a dashed circle overtop it. This
          means that whatever area you're trying to enter is not accessible on
          a horse. Dismount and enter on foot.

 - Elephant: This is a symbol of an elephant with a dashed circle overtop it.
             This means that whatever area you're trying to enter is not
             accessible on an elephant. You must dismount and enter on foot.

  .------------------------------------------------------------------------.
  |                           Information Screen                           |
  `------------------------------------------------------------------------´

The information screen will appear before the beginning of each battle. Once
you have entered the battle, this screen can be brought up again at any time
by pressing the START button. The game will also be paused while this screen
is up. There is a lot of information that can be taken from this screen, so
let me break it down:


Battlefield map
-------
You will be able to see a complete overview of the map. On this map, you will
be able to see the following:

 - All current living enemy officers: These are little red blocks (look just
                                      like that one Tetris block that would
                                      always screw me up!).

 - All current living friendly officers: These are little blue blocks.

 - Your location: Your location is designated by a green arrow.

 - Steed location: If you have a harness equipped and you're NOT on your horse,
                   it's current location will be represented by a little
                   speed-bump looking icon.

 - Enemy bases: You can see the location of any current enemy bases that have
                not yet been taken. They are designated by a red triangle,
                square, or circle. For more information about bases see the
                bases section (section 3.5).

 - Friendly bases: You can see the location of any current friendly bases that
                   have not yet been taken. They are designated by a blue
                   triangle, square, or circle. For more information about
                   bases see the bases section (section 3.5).

 - Neutral bases: These are bases that have not yet been occupied by either
                  friendly or enemy troops. They are designated by a gray
                  triangle, square, or circle. For more information about bases
                  see the bases section (section 3.5).

 - Enemy checkpoints: These are little red thumb tacks that are usually around
                      the edges of the map. This is where enemy reinforcements
                      can come from. Defeat a checkpoint to cut off that route
                      of reinforcement.

 - Friendly checkpoints: Work in the same way as enemy checkpoints, except
                         these are blue in color.

 - Any structures: This includes any type of building walls, pathways,
                   mountains, bridges, and bodies of water.


Preparation
-------
This option is only available before you actually start the battle. When you
select this option you will be taken to a new screen where you can change your
characters equipped weapons, items, and bodyguard. You are also able to see
your characters current status on this screen.


Conditions
-------
This screen will show you the conditions for winning or losing the battle.


Unit Info
-------
This screen will show you all of the allied and enemy officers on the screen.
Moving your cursor over the officer will show you their location on the
battlefield, as well as any living sub-officers underneath them, their army
morale, and their army size. If an officer has a sub-officer underneath them,
then pressing the "X" button with that officer highlighted will show you the
location of their sub-officers.


Overview
-------
This screen is also only available before you actually start the battle. It
will show you the main objective behind the stage as well as any recommended
strategies.


Time Left
-------
This is shown on the right side of the screen. Every battle has a time limit
(usually an hour) and when that timer reaches zero the battle will be lost if
you're still fighting. Personally I don't think I've ever had the timer reach
zero on a battle, so this generally shouldn't be an issue.


Personal
-------
This option replaces the 'Preparation' option once you've actually started the
battle. On this screen you can see all of the preparations you made prebattle,
however you cannot change anything.


Battle Log
-------
This option is only available once the battle has been started. It will show
you a log of all the different battle messages that you have gotten thus far.


Interim Save
-------
This will save your game data during the battle. The number of times you can
save depends on the difficulty. On easy you have an unlimited number of saves,
on normal you have three, and on hard you have one. The number of saves left
is shown by memory card icons on the bottom right hand corner of the screen
when the battle is paused.


Start / Resume
-------
Select 'Start' once you are ready to begin the battle, then if you pause the
game during play select 'Resume' to return to the fight.

BASES                                                                    [BASE]
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

One of the new features to the Dynasty Warriors games is the introduction of
bases in this game. There are four different types of bases, each serving
a different function. Taking an enemy base will raise morale, while loosing
one will obviously lower it. Also, once a base is taken it will cease to
function for the remaining of the battle. The different types of bases as well
as their functions are as follows:


 [ Attack base ]  - These bases are represented by a triangle on the map. They
                    have a catapult outside attacking enemy forces. The units
                    protecting the base will attack aggressively. Guard
                    Captains will drop items that increase your attack ability.

 [ Defense base ] - These bases are surrounded by high walls. The units
                    guarding the base can block your attacks. The Guard Captain
                    will drop an item that increases your defense ability.

 [ Supply base ]  - These bases will raise morale and also contain items. The
                    Guard Captain can use items that affect the units within
                    the base (including the player.) Defeated Guard Captains
                    will drop an elixir.

 [ Checkpoint ]   - Checkpoints will send in reinforcements, and will continue
                    to do so until they're taken. Defeated enemy checkpoints
                    will later turn into an allied checkpoint.


Smaller bases will only have a Guard Captain inside which must be defeated to
take the base. Larger bases will also have two Gate Captains who guard the two
doors into the base. Upon approaching the base, both doors with close and the
Gate Captain must be defeated to open the door (the door he was guarding will
open. Defeating one Gate Captain will NOT open both doors.) Once the Guard
Captain inside is also defeated, then the other door will open as well and the
base will fall.

Bases are represented on the map by a certain shape and color. Blue bases are
allied bases, while red bases are enemy bases. Gray bases are neutral bases,
meaning that they currently don't belong to either army. The first person to
enter into a neutral base will claim that base for whatever side they're on.
On the game map attack bases are a triangle, defense bases are a square, supply
bases are a circle, and checkpoints are little thumb tacks.

If you are trying to get into an allied base and the doors are closed, defeat
all of the enemies around the base for the doors to open back up. Also, if you
happen to be inside a base when the doors are closed and find yourself trapped
inside, use the ramp that is next to the gate. Finally, when an enemy or
friendly base is conquered, other bases for that side will become temporarily
confused and cease to function.

BODYGUARDS                                                               [BODY]
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The bodyguard system in DW5 is a lot different then the system used in the
previous games. In the older DW games bodyguards were just generic soldiers
that gained experience along with your character during battles. As they
gained experience not only did their stats increase, so did their number. In
total you were able to have up to 8 bodyguards in the older games. However in
DW5, you only have one bodyguard. Instead of it being just a generic soldier,
your bodyguard is a much stronger unique character.

From the start of the game there are four bodyguards available. You can have
up to eight "saved" bodyguards. However you can only take one bodyguard into
battle with you, and this can be selected on the information screen under
"Preparation" before the battle begins (once you battle begins you cannot
bring in a bodyguard.) Also, while playing a characters musou mode, if you
choose a bodyguard before a battle that bodyguard will automatically be
selected to go into battle with you for the additional battles of that officers
musou mode unless otherwise selected.

After each battle, so long as you took a bodyguard into battle with you, that
bodyguard will receive points. In order to further develop and increase their
stats, bodyguards will need these points. As they gain more points, their
level will increase. And as their level increases, so do their stats and
skills. The maximum level a bodyguard can reach is 6, after that you won't see
any increase in the bodyguards stats/special abilities.

There are several different things you should know about bodyguards. I'll
break down these key points here:


Elemental Attacks
-------
As a bodyguards level increases, they may be able to have an elemental attack
attached to them. This appears as a little icon underneath their name. Their
elements are the same as the orbs that you can attach to your own characters:
fire, ice, shadow, and light. What element they have is random.


Weapon
-------
There are six different types of weapons that bodyguards can have, each which
affects how the bodyguard will fight in battle. The type of weapon that the
bodyguard has is randomly determined once you acquire them, and it cannot be
changed. The six weapons are as follows:

     o Sword - Bodyguard assists you in a musou attack.
     o Spear - Bodyguard assists you in a musou attack.
     o Staff - Bodyguard assists you in a wide ranging charge attack.
     o Bow - Bodyguard assists you with a powerful charge attack.
     o Crossbow - Bodyguard assists you with a powerful charge attack.
     o Fan - Bodyguard will heal you (+50 health.)


Special Abilities
-------
These are, well, special abilities that your bodyguard will have available to
them. They're sort of like "perks" that make them even more useful. These
abilities are learned as your bodyguard levels up, and the maximum number that
they can have is four. There are eight different special abilities, listed as
follows:

     o Heal - Bodyguard can heal itself.
     o Rage - Bodyguards attack power increases when in trouble.
     o Wall - Bodyguards defense power increases when in trouble.
     o Fame - Your army morale becomes less likely to decrease.
     o Link - Better items can be acquired through smaller combos.
     o Hire - A bodyguard will definitely join you after battle.
     o Item - Acquired items are increased by one after battle.
     o Find - Acquired weapons are increased by one after battle.


Rating
-------
Your bodyguards rating is basically an overview of just how good your bodyguard
will end up being. The higher the rating, the better their overall stats, as
well as the more special abilities they can learn. There are two ratings given
to each bodyguard: a letter and a word. The letter is the bodyguards
development potential, and the word is the bodyguards development type.


  -> Development Potential
      - This is the amount of kingdoms that are mentioned. The more kingdoms
        mentioned, the higher the potential. The number of kingdoms is
        represented as follows:

          o S - Entire land
          o A - 3 kingdoms
          o B - 2 kingdoms
          o C - 1 kingdom


  -> Development Type
      - This informs you of how your bodyguard will gain their stats after
        each battle. Like the development potential, there are four
        different types:

          o Superior - Initial abilities are high and can develop quickly.
          o Brilliant - Initial abilities are low, but can develop quickly.
          o Remarkable - Initial abilities and development are average.
          o Veteran - Initial abilities are high but don't develop as well.


Each bodyguards rating is generated randomly after the end of each battle.
Obviously you can a better chance of getting a stronger bodyguard on harder
difficulty settings. The best type of bodyguards are the "Superior/S" ratings.
It should be noted, however, that you can manipulate the Playstation 2's
internal clock to get higher ranked bodyguards. For more information about
this you should read AceLegend90's "Internal Time Trick Guide". I have never
experimented with this and, in all honesty, don't really know any more
information about it.


Just like in the previous DW games, your bodyguard will heal once you pick up
a health-restoring item. It's a good idea to keep your eye on your bodyguards
health, and pick up a meat bun/other health item even if you don't need it if
your bodyguard does.

One other thing you should be aware of with bodyguards is that you can give
them orders via the [SELECT] button. There are three different orders that you
can give: attack, guard, and hold. Attack is represented by a little sword
icon, guard is a shield, and hold is a hand. You'll see this icon underneath
your characters life and musou bars, next to your arrow count. The commands are
pretty self-explanatory. The "Wait" command will have your bodyguard just stay
wherever the command is given. This is useful to use if your bodyguard is very
low on health and you need to find a meat bun - just have your bodyguard wait
in an area clear of enemies while you go find something.

That's pretty much all there is to know about bodyguards in this game.

TIPS AND TRICKS                                                          [TNTS]
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

If you're new to the Dynasty Warriors series I've compiled a list here of some
tips and tricks to help give you a bit of an advantage when playing.


 o  Officers that are in what I call "hyper mode" have a sort of aura
    surrounding them. This means that their attack and defense will be doubled.
    A lot of times these officers will also gain some type of stat boost after
    a certain amount of their health is gone. These include health
    regeneration, attack x2, defense x2, and speed x2. Sometimes they will also
    go into a musou rage mode when even more health is lost.

 o  If you're fighting an enemy officer and they go into musou rage mode, just
    run around (or quickly hop on a horse) and evade them until their musou
    rage subsides. I don't suggest you just completely run away from them,
    however, because if you do most of the time they will taunt you and your
    morale will decrease.

 o  Equip characters that have many juggle attacks with a fire orb. Attacking
    an enemy while they are in the air will only do half of the damage as
    compared to if they were on the ground. Therefore characters who are
    "juggle-heavy" (so to speak) usually benefit from a fire orb as juggling
    an enemy while they are on fire can help make up for the fact that damage
    is halved. This is why many sword users are so deadly: their musou is
    usually a non-juggling attack.

 o  If both you are your bodyguard are able to use a musou attack and are close
    enough together, you'll see a glowing "energy chain" connecting both you
    and your bodyguard. Using a musou now will cause your bodyguard to use
    their special musou attack along with yours as well. Your musou will also
    be a true musou as opposed to just a regular musou. It's a good idea to
    grab a musou wine, as they will fill both your musou and your bodyguards
    musou, and then get close together and wreak havoc.

 o  This is my method on "training" a new character starting from their default
    stats: Play "Guan Yu's Escape" 2-3 times on easy. Kill all of the officers
    and make sure you grab their stat boosting items that they drop, and make
    sure you open each of the weapon crates (there's one by each gate.) By the
    third time through their attack stat should be about halfway, with their
    defense a little bit behind (Guan Yu's Escape has many attack+ officer
    drops.) With any luck you should have their third weapon, at LEAST their
    second. Now play "Guan Yu's Escape" on hard until you max their stats/get
    them to where you're comfortable. You will max out their attack stat much
    quicker than their defense.

 o  Enemy officers CANNOT block immediately after getting up from being knocked
    on the ground. Therefore once you've knocked an enemy down on the ground,
    start slashing right before they get up. Once they do they'll start getting
    hit immediately by your attacks, with no ability to block them.

 o  Learn how to flip to avoid being knocked onto the ground. If you get
    knocked into the air, hit L1 when you peak in the air to do a flip and
    land back on your feet. Likewise, if you get knocked onto the ground, hit
    L1 right when you hit the ground to spring back up onto your feet. Getting
    knocked onto the ground leaves you vulnerable to unblock able enemy attacks
    once you get up.

 o  Learn how to counterattack: when blocking an enemy attack with the L1
    button, pressing the triangle button at just the right time will make your
    character counterattack an enemy blow. You have to time it just right,
    however. You need to press the triangle button at the exact same time that
    the enemy attacks your block. This can backfire on you, however, because
    if you mistime the counterattack your character will be vulnerable to
    enemy attacks.

There are 48 characters in Dynasty Warriors 5, six of which are new to the
series. In this section I will go into detail about each character, including
the following information: brief historical background (this is taken directly
from the encyclopedia of the game), the characters weapons, their move set,
their models, and my own personal rating of the character. Obviously my rating
of each character is my own opinion, but all other information about each
character should be accurate.

Please take note that I do *NOT* cover musou modes, fourth weapon requirements
and strategies, and unlocking information in this section. I have an individual
section in this guide dedicated to each of those subjects, so please refer to
those sections for that information. Also take note that for each characters
move set, the following abbreviations are used: S is for the Square button, and
T is for the Triangle button.

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Zhao Yun is a very solid character, kind of the "default" character of the
  series if you will. He's very balanced, and easy to get a hang of. His
  normal attack string is his greatest advantage - it's good at dealing with
  taking out large groups of enemies. He's got a very solid fourth weapon
  as well, giving his main stats a nice boost. Probably one of his biggest
  flaws, however, is a rather weak musou. It only targets one person and, 
  while it might be a great juggling attack, isn't nearly as good as other
  crowd clearing musous.

  Guan Yu is pretty good, but he does have a few setbacks. For one, he is
  painfully slow. If you've played any other Dynasty Warriors games this is
  to be expected, but still annoying. His fourth is pretty good, and although
  its light status lets you attack quicker, that also means a reduction in
  strength. However he has good crowd clearing abilities and a pretty good
  SST string. His musou is a good crowd clearer as well as juggling tool.
  Once you get him on a horse he's a great character to use, but don't run
  around with this guy or you'll get frustrated fast.

  Personally I don't think Zhang Fei is that bad. His move set isn't too bad,
  his SST string is pretty effective at clearing crowds, as is his musou.
  He is, however, plagued by some of the same problems as Guan Yu. For one he
  is unbearably slow, and his light fourth weapon comes with some reduction
  in power. His regular attack string isn't so good, but I believe his SST
  string makes up for it. All in all Zhang Fei is pretty decent.

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  I know Zhuge Liang is considered one of the better characters, but I 
  personally never found him to be that great. His regular S string is rather
  decent, but I find his T strings to be very poor. I suppose his rather
  powerful SSSSST makes up for the fact that his SST has no +T, but one thing
  that's annoying about the SSSSST is that when you try to perform it in
  large groups you'll usually get hit before you can summon up all of the
  fireballs, thus limiting is deadliness. His main claim to fame is his
  deadly musou. It's great for clearing out crowds and can wreak havoc on
  officers life bars, but it's hard to aim sometimes and land several
  consecutive attacks on one target. His fourth weapon is pretty good, but
  I think the bow attribute could've been substituted for something better.
  All in all he's certainly one of the better characters, but personally I
  never thought he was as great as everyone else seems to think.

           of white and purple in the front.

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Liu Bei is one of my favorite sword users. He has a deadly S string, and his
  SST(+T) and SSSSST string are excellent crowd clearers. His musou is
  basically like his SST(+T) string, except he deals extra damage at the end
  with a series of stationary slashes. This makes it great for both clearing
  crowds and quickly knocking down officers health bars. The only thing he
  is lacking in is a good fourth weapon. While it isn't bad, attributes such
  as speed and horse could be better replaced with something else. However
  Liu Bei and his forth can be put to good use if you're using him to try to
  score some high leveled items - slap him on Hex Mark, add a Luck+ item,
  and use his fourth to really boost your chances.

           around his waist, with a long piece of green cloth coming out of
           the back. He has a helmet with the upper half of a dragons head on
           it, and white hair coming out of the back.
  Model 2: The same as his first model, except this one includes much more
           gold color. His armor and pants are now a light gold, as is his
           helmet and the hair coming out of the back of it.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. The colors are mostly the same as the first
           model, but there are a few differences. He now has a while sash
           around his torso, and he has spikes coming out of his bracers. His
           helmet isn't a dragons head, instead it now has two horns coming
           out of the side and a white tassel-like thing coming out of the
           top.
  Model 4: Similar to model three, but with some color changes. His armor is
           now white, his sleeves and pants are now green, and the sash around
           his waist is now red. He is now wearing a white turban as a hat,
           with a gold headband around it.

 -> Rating: 5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Ma Chao is simply a beast on a horse; completely unstoppable. Put him on
  Shadow Runner so he can't get knocked off and you'll have to try to lose,
  even on chaos mode. Equip him with the horned helm and his fourth to even
  boost his horse stats more and you'll be slaying officers like it's nothing.
  Off the horse Ma Chao is still pretty solid, with a good S string and a
  decent T string. However I think Ma Chao's biggest flaw is his off horse
  musou. It's decent, but somewhat hard to control and really only effective
  as a good crowd clearer - forget about using it to target an individual
  officer. But as long as you got Shadow Runner there really is no reason to
  have Ma Chao off the horse. The only bad thing about his fourth is the
  wasted speed bonus; if this was a different attribute it would make the
  weapon even better.

 -> Rating: 3/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Despite a few attacks, Huang Zhong is pretty much just an average character.
  There are a few charge attacks of his that make him rather unique, however.
  His main advantage point is his regular T attack, which can also be spammed
  +T. This volley of arrows, when equipped with the fire arrows item, can be
  quite deadly. His SST(+T) is essentially the same thing, just with fewer
  volleys; however the last volley makes up for it with stunning power. Still,
  the main way to go with Huang Zhong is to just spam T(+T) with using his
  XT to quickly escape. His musou is rather decent as well, dealing out some
  heavy damage to individual officers as well as being a decent crowd clearer.
  Now for the bad... while spamming his T(+T) is effective, he's left standing
  still while doing so, leaving him very vulnerable to enemies and archers.
  Aside from his T(+T) and SST(+T), the rest of his T strings and his S
  strings are rather weak and ineffective. Plus his fourth weapon, for how
  difficult it is to get, is a letdown. No attack attribute and a light weight
  status degrades his attack power greatly. With both good pros and cons, I've
  always found Huang Zhong to be just average.

  Jiang Wei is deadly, especially at taking out crowds. His S string is great,
  and takes out huge swarms of enemies easily, as does his SST(+T) string.
  His musou is also great at both taking out crowds and dealing a large amount
  of damage to a single officer. His fourth weapon is pretty good, although
  the luck and speed attributes could have been better replaced with something
  else. But regardless, Jiang Wei is still one of the top officers in the
  game.

           darker.

  Wei Yan is a very fun character to use, and is also a beast. His S string
  and T string are both great for taking out large crowds, as is his musou.
  His two best attacks are his SST(+T) and his SSSSST(+T) attacks, which you
  can just run around spamming to destroy everything in your path. His fourth
  weapon is also good, just adding to his deadliness. Personally I think Wei
  Yan is one of the best characters in the game, as well as one of the most
  fun to use.

           with a little bit of red in the middle.
  Model 2: Same as his first model except now his clothes are mostly white,
           gray, and a dark blue/purpleish color. His pants and the cloth
           around his face are a dark gray, almost black color.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. Most of his face is still covered, except 
           now the hat he is wearing is sort of a mini-sombrero looking hat,
           with red frills hanging off the sides. The robe he is wearing is
           mostly green and gold, with the sleeves having a brownish
           background.
  Model 4: He looks like someone from the Yellow Turbans in this model. His
           hat and upper body clothes are all a very bright gold. The hat
           looks like a Yellow Turban sorcerer hat. His pants are white.

 -> Rating: 1.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Pang Tong is just... bad, as far as I'm concerned. For starters his S string
  is just awful. Not only is it bad at clearing crowds, it's also bad at
  attacking individual enemies. His T string is pretty bad as well - his
  SST(+T) is decent, but still hard to target an individual enemy with all
  hits. His only other decent T string attack is his SSSSST, but due to the
  fact that he takes his good old time getting ready to use it he'll usually
  get hit before he can. The only reason I'm giving him a 2/5 is his musou.
  It's pretty deadly, and really the only redeeming factor that he has.

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Model 1: This is her default model. She's wearing a white robe with a green
           sash around her waist. Most of her clothing underneath the robe is
           green as well, including green boots and bracers. She has golden
           shoulder pads on both shoulders, and some golden designs on her
           robe. She is wearing some type of golden hat, with a red gem on the
           front and elf-like ears on the sides.
  Model 2: Same as her first model, just different colors. Now the robe is
           mostly light blue, teal, and gold. Her waist is purple, and the
           sash is now white, as are her shoulder pads. Her hat is now silver/
           white as well.
  Model 3: This is her DW4 model. Her robe is mostly white and gold, with a
           green and gold chest plate. Her hat is very similar to her previous
           two models.
  Model 4: Similar to the third model, but with a few differences. One is the
           color, this is more green and gold, with the upper portion of her
           chest a dark brown. Her skirt is also now an armored plate on her
           right leg.

 -> Ranting: 2.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Personally I find Yue Ying to be just another average character. Nothing
  about her really stands out or makes her extremely useful. Her S string is
  decent, but I believe her T string could be much better. Her SST(+T) is
  good for dealing out damage to a single enemy, but useless for any type of
  crowd clearing. Her SSSSST(+T) is the same as her musou, therefore easily
  spammable. Both this and her musou are great for clearing crowds, but bad
  for dealing any type of heavy damage to officers since it's more of a
  juggling attack. Her fourth weapon is decent as well.

 -> Rating: 3.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Guan Ping is definitely good, but I just don't find him to be the kind of
  powerhouse that I feel he should be. He's a good crowd clearer, that's for
  sure. His SST(+T) is both good at dealing individual damage to an officer
  and then the shockwave of energy at the end is good for damaging large 
  crowds. His SSST(+T) is great for taking out large crowds, as is his
  musou. However, since it's a juggling musou it isn't that greatest for
  officer damage. His S string is decent, but nothing to write home about.
  Guan Ping is certainly a good character, but I can't help but feel that he
  could be better.

  After playing with Xing Cai quite a bit I actually started to get use to
  her, and found her to be not too bad... but thinking about it there really
  isn't enough good things about her to rate her too highly. Her SST(+T) is
  great for clearing crowds, and her musou is great for dealing damage to
  officers... and that's about it. The rest of her T string is literally
  useless, and her S string is nothing to brag about. Other then that there
  really isn't much else great about her.

  Xiahou Dun is a pretty solid character. He deals out a good bit of damage,
  has a nice fourth weapon, and his attack strings and musou are great for
  handing out some heavy damage. His S string is very good, and really isn't
  lacking in any areas. His T string is decent, but you'll find yourself
  mainly spamming his SST(+T). His musou is great for individual damage as
  well as taking out crowds. Xiahou Dun is an all-around well balanced
  character.

 -> Rating: 3.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Dian Wei is a pretty decent character, with his strengths being his S string
  and his musou. His S string is just all around great, and his musou is a
  good crowd clearer and damage dealer. His SST(+T) string is decent, but
  can be a little difficult to control. None of his other T strings is very
  remarkable, except maybe his SSSSST. His fourth weapon is decent, even
  though it is light weight. At least it has the Atk +18 to make up for it.
  A big downfall for Dian Wei though is that he's very slow, you'll need a
  horse for his guy unless you want to slap on a speed scroll.

           His pants are blue and he's wearing some sort of tiara-like hat.
  Model 2: Same as his first model except this is mostly gold and red. His
           vest is outlined in gold with a dark brownish background. He scarf
           around his neck is now a dark red, as are his pants. The rest of his
           clothes are gold.

           below his armpits. His hair is also tied up in a bun at the top.
           His bottom half is essentially the same as his other models, except
           his pants are purple.
  Model 4: Same as the third model, just different colors. His vest, pants,
           and clothes around his waist are now all mostly grayish in color.

 -> Rating: 1/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Xu Zhu is, simply put, one of the most frustrating officers to play as. He's
  slow, clunky, and his move set is a mess. His S string is decent for clearing
  out crowds, as are some of his T string attacks, but he's so slow with so
  much lag you can hardly even pull them off half the time. His musou would
  be semi-decent if it wasn't for the fact that he just literally falls down
  at the end. This pretty much forces you to use a Way of the Musou scroll if
  you want to make any use of it. His fourth weapon is light as well, and with
  no attack bonus this makes it take a big hit in damage. All in all Xu Zhu
  is one of the worst officers of the game, hands down.

           around his waist is a more darker purple/blueish color.

 -> Rating: 4/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Cao Cao is probably my favorite sword user in the game. His S and T string
  are great at taking down crowds, and with his fourth weapon he really
  becomes a powerhouse. His SST(+T) and SSSSST(+T) are his best attacks,
  along with his musou. Both of them are great at dealing with crowds while
  also dishing out heavy damage to officers. His fourth weapon also helps
  boost his horse stats. Using the ice orb with his SSSSST(+T) will provide
  great results.

  Model 1: His default model. He is wearing mostly blue and white armor. He
           has two armor pads on his upper arm as well as his upper leg. He
           has a golden cloth on around his waist, but it is mostly covered up
           by the other clothes he has on over top of it. He's wearing a
           helmet that covers most of his head aside from his face, and there
           is a large white tassel coming out of the top of it.
  Model 2: Same as his first model, but with different colors. His armor now
           is mostly a brownish color with gold outlines, and he is wearing
           some purple clothes underneath his armor. The tassel on top of his
           hat is now purple as well.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. He's still wearing armor plates on his upper
           arms and legs, and he is also wearing a large chest plate of armor.
           Most of this is blue and gold, with a white shirt on underneath.
           He's wearing a purple sash around his waist with a red colored
           piece of cloth being used as a belt. His pants are a light blue.
           Instead of a large helmet he's now wearing a small hat on top of
           his head.
  Model 4: Similar to his third model, but with some differences. The main one
           is the color, this is mostly a grayish color with gold outlines,
           and white pants and cloth belt. His hat is now back to the same as
           his first and second model, except the tassel is blue.

 -> Rating: 3/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Much like his Shu counterpart, Huang Zhong, Xiahou Yuan suffers from the
  same sort of averageness. His T(+T) is good, but leaves him standing still,
  so you must be careful when to use it. His S string is decent and despite
  the fact that he has a few +T attacks in his T string, they aren't really
  that good. His SST(+T) isn't useful at dealing with crowds, and his
  SSSSST(+T) suffers from a good bit of lag at the start. His musou suffers
  many of the problems of his SST(+T), mainly its lack of range. Overall
  Xiahou Yuan isn't that bad because he is a heavy hitter, but he lacks the
  range to really be a stand out character.

  Zhang Liao is definitely above average, but not without some drawbacks.
  He's great at taking out crowds, especially with his musou and SST(+T),
  both which also deal a good amount of damage. His S string is decent, as is
  his fourth weapon. However most of his other T string attacks have quite a
  bit of lag to them, especially his SSSSS(T). But even still, Zhang Liao is
  a good crowd clearer and still one of the better officers in the game.

 -> Rating: 3.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  I consider Sima Yi to basically be a better version of Zhuge Liang. He has
  what I believe to be is probably the best musou in the game, as well as a
  good S string and a deadly XT charge. As always an elemental orb T charge
  is good, but the rest of his T string is lacking, which is what brings his
  rating down. His SST is pretty much useless, and his SSSSST, while great
  and all (considering its much like his musou), suffers from a good deal of
  lag. But still, I enjoy playing as Sima Yi, if not just to spam his musou.
  Unfortunately if his T string was better he would be a complete beast, but
  such is not the case.

  Model 1: His default model. He's wearing a mostly white and blue robe with
           some gold plating here and there. He has some armor on his upper
           legs, and is wearing blue pants. His hat almost looks like a white
           turban type of thing.
  Model 2: Same as his first model, but with the colors flip-flopped. His robe
           is mostly blue now, with some white and gold sections. His pants
           are now white. His hat is a slightly lighter blue than the rest of
           his robe.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. His hat is similar to his first and second
           model, maybe just a little less detailed. He's wearing more armor
           on his upper body now, with a chest plate and arm guards. The rest
           of his clothes are still mostly a mixture of blue, white, and gold.
  Model 4: This model is pretty different from all the rest. His pants and
           undershirt are a light purple, and he's wearing a lot of armor
           on his chest, waist and upper arms. Most of his armor is a goldish
           color, with some red and blue mixed in. His hat is still similar
           to the other models, except now it encircles his entire head and is
           wrapped around his neck like a scarf.

 -> Rating: 3.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Xu Huang is a pretty solid character, with good crowd clearing abilities and
  reliable damage. His SST(+T) and musou are his two best attacks.
  Coincidentally, they both happen to be the same. Nothing else from his T
  string is really noteworthy; his SSSSST would be better if there wasn't
  lag. His S string is great and is also what makes him good at clearing
  crowds, and he probably has one of the better XT attacks in the game. His
  fourth weapon is light, but has an attack attribute to make up for it. All
  in the all Xu Huang is definitely one of the better officers, but I don't
  think he has quite what it takes to be at the top.

 -> Rating: 2.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Zhang He is pretty bad, but I think with a little work he can be playable.
  For starters he has short range, only one really heavy damage attack, and
  a rather weak S and T string. He S string isn't horrible, but it's not ideal
  for crowds. The only really good move on his T string is his SST(+T), which
  deals a good bit of damage, albeit only to individual enemies. The only
  really good crowd control move he has is his musou, which is good if you
  use it to just skate through crowds. However if you're trying to land every
  hit on an individual officer, it's going to take some practice, but it is
  possible.

  Zhen Ji is lacking in too many areas for her to be decent. Her range is
  very limited, and neither her S nor T string are very good. Many of her
  attacks are focused on a single enemy, making her very bad for dealing with
  large crowds. Her only really decent attack is her musou, which unfortunately
  also juggles. But still, it's the best bet to just spam it anyway when you
  use her. Other than that there isn't much else very good about her.

  Cao Ren is yet another poor character. He's very slow, has a limited range,
  and has a poor S string. His T string is all but useless except for his
  very good (and really only useful attack) SST(+T). If it wasn't for this
  attack I probably would've rated him a 2 or even 1.5. His musou is decent
  as well, but nothing amazing. His fourth, while being light, does at least
  offer an attack bonus to make up for it. His mounted attacks are also very
  slow, making horse combat almost useless with Cao Ren.

  Cao Pi is lacking in very many areas. For one he has a short range, his
  attack is slow, and both of his strings are sloppy. His SST(+T) is somewhat
  alright for dealing out good damage, but it gets hard to keep control of 
  it towards the end. None of his other T string attacks are very good except
  maybe his T attack itself. His musou isn't the greatest either, as it
  doesn't dish out enough damage to make up for his other subpar attacks.
  His horse attack is decent, however. It's a shame there is no horse bonus
  on his fourth.

  Pang De is just badass. For one he has great range and crowd clearing
  abilities with his large halberds. His musou is one of the best in the game;
  it's devastating to an officers health. His S string is excellent, as is
  his T string. Spam his SST(+T) for great damage and crowd control. His
  mounted attack is much like that of Ma Chao, also making him a beast on the
  horse. I don't believe he's as good as Ma Chao however; his mounted charge
  isn't as good plus his attack speed is a little slow. I'd much rather
  keep him on the ground to really dish out the damage. Plus he has a great
  fourth weapon, even though it's light. He is, unfortunately, extremely
  slow. A horse is required for long distance movement.

  Model 1: His default model. He's wearing a robe that covers mainly his
           chest and back, with part of it hanging down between his legs. The
           robe is red in color with some gold outlines. Around his waist is
           a purple sash. Underneath he's wearing gray clothes.
  Model 2: Same as his first model, but different colors. His robe is still a
           red color, but it is a much darker red. The gold outlines are
           a darker gold as well. His clothes underneath are also a dark red,
           although not as dark as the robe.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. It's somewhat similar to his fist two models
           in that he has a robe covering most of his chest that is also red
           and gold, except the backside of it is mostly white. It also has
           some flaps coming down his upper legs, and it's larger around his
           shoulder area.
  Model 4: Similar to his third model, but with some differences. His robe is
           now gray in the front, and red in the back. His clothes underneath
           are gray as well, and the sash around his waist is now green. His
           hair is also up in a ponytail.

 -> Rating: 3/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Zhou Yu is pretty good, although nothing amazing; I would say slightly above
  average. His S string and T string are both decent, although his range
  could use a little work. His musou is good as well, but also lacks some
  range. Personally I would just spam his S string, as his really only good
  T attack is his SST(+T). He also has a pretty good fourth weapon. Not as
  good of a sword user as the rulers, but still good overall.

           draping down to his legs. He has a teal colored sash around his
           waist and is wearing red pants. He has a small red and gold hat
           on top of his head.
  Model 2: Same as his first model, but with different colors. Most of his
           clothes are purple in this model. The back portion of his clothes
           are a mixture of blue, purple, and some red towards the ends. The
           very top portion of his shirt is a pinkish color. His hat is now
           purple as well.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. It's mostly red with gold outlines. He has
           some armor on his upper chest and on his knee caps. His pants are
           a brownish color. His hat is similar to his other two models except
           there's not as much at the top and it has a piece of cloth coming
           down from the backside.
  Model 4: Similar to his third model, but with some color differences. Most
           of his clothes are now white, including his shirt. However the
           armor plate on his chest is still a reddish color with some silver
           and gold mixed in as well. He is not wearing any hat in this model.

 -> Rating: 2/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Lu Xun suffers from a lack of good range and a below average move set. All
  of his attacks - S string, T string, and musou - lack any decent range.
  His SST(+T) only hits about three times and can be difficult to control.
  None of his attacks really make for good crowd clearing capabilities. His
  musou is decent, but again is really only useful against individual enemies.
  His fourth weapon isn't that great, I think he could do without the speed
  or luck boost.

           shoulders and upper legs. He has a red and gold armor plate on his
           chest, and a purple sash going around his waist. His pants and
           shirt are completely red in color, and he's wearing red bracers

           front and a purple tassel in the back.
  Model 2: This is the same as his first model, except mostly black. His armor
           has a silver outlining, and the sash around his waist is now gold.
           The rest of his armor/pants/shirt are mostly black in color. The
           tassel on his helmet is now a dark red.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. It's actually pretty similar to his first
           model in design. He has armor plats on his shoulders and upper legs,
           except it's golden/red in color. The armor plate on his chest is
           much larger than his previous models, and is red and gold in color.
           His helmet is very similar, except the wings are farther out on the
           sides of the helmet as opposed to right up top. The tassel coming
           out of the helmet is both purple and red.
  Model 4: Somewhat similar to his third model, but with some differences.
           His armor is now mostly silver and some brown/golden color. His
           pants and shirt are a much darker red. His helmet is now a
           pickelhaube with two horns coming out of the sides that are pointed
           downward.

 -> Rating: 2/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Taishi Ci has a good musou, but that's about it. And really his musou is
  only good for killing officers. He's not a good crowd clearer by any means,
  not with his regular S string, nor his T string, nor his musou. His SST(+T)
  is decent, but again it is really only useful against individual enemies.
  Overall Taishi Ci has a pretty weak move set and is a very subpar character.

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Sun Shang Xiang is very poor in this game. Her fourth weapon is heavy, which
  really hurts most of her moves. Her horse combat is unbearably slow, don't
  even bother using it. Getting off many of her T attacks is hard due to the
  heavy weapon, but her SSSSST(+T) is probably her best move, just spam that.
  Her musou is nothing special considering the fact that it juggles, but it's
  not horrible either.

 -> Rating: 3.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Like most sword users, Sun Jian's main source of damage is going to be his
  non-juggling musou. It rips through crowds and officers, so use it often.
  And of course just like all other sword users his S string is pretty good,
  as is most of his T string. The thing that knocks Sun Jian's rating down
  from most other sword users is that his fourth weapon is light, and has no
  attack bonus on it to make up for this fact. Still, Sun Jian is an above
  average character and shouldn't have much trouble holding his own.

  Model 1: His default model. He's wearing a large robe that is mostly red
           and gold in color. Around his waist in the back is a piece of cloth
           that has tiger stripes on it - perhaps he stole it from Sun Jian?
           His clothes underneath are red with some blue/teal towards the ends.
           His hair is up in a bun on his head.
  Model 2: Same as his first model, except his robe is now a very dark red
           color. The gold on his robe/armor also seems to be darker and stands
           out more. The tiger stripes are also on the fur that's on the top
           portion of his robe.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. He's wearing a large robe that is red with
           some gold on the ends. The robe extends all the way down to his
           feet, and there is no separation at the legs. The armor around his
           chest area is mostly red and gold with a little bit of green around
           the waist. He is wearing a hat on his head.
  Model 4: Same as his third model, except with some color differences. The
           sleeves on his robe are now purple, and the bottom half of the robe
           is red. His armor is more silver now instead of gold. And the hat
           on his head is similar to that of the sorcerers.

  Another sword user, Sun Quan has a good move set and a damaging musou.
  Unfortunately, his true musou juggles, actually making his regular musou
  move preferred. But other than that he has a great move set, and a nice
  fourth weapon (compared to his father, Sun Jian, at least.) Like other sword
  users spam his SST(+T) to cut your way through crowds and use his SSSSST
  if you find yourself surrounded (or his ground stomp T attack works well
  also.)

           a hat on his head.

 -> Rating: 2.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Overall Lu Meng is a below average spear user. Lu Meng's only good T attack
  is his SST(+T), the rest aren't very useful, so you'll probably just end
  up spamming that most of the time. His musou is great in the fact that it
  doesn't juggle, a rare feature for a spear user. His fourth weapon is decent,
  but would be better with something other than the horse and bow bonus.

  Gan Ning is great, and has one of the most fun to use musous in the game,
  at least in my opinion. It's not the easiest to control and you can, at
  beast, get in about two single hits on one officer, but they're two very
  powerful hits. The rest of his move set is pretty good; his SST(+T) really
  only does heavy damage to one person, so use it against officers. His
  fourth weapon, while light, has an attack bonus and a musou bonus, making
  it pretty decent (considering you'll be spamming his musou a lot.) He has
  good crowd clearing abilities with his SSSSST.

  Huang Gai is a pretty weak character. He has short range, and a poor T
  string. His SST(+T) does decent damage to a single enemy, but it's useless
  with crowds. Even his regular S string is rather ineffective at dealing with
  more then several enemies at once. His musou is odd in the fact that a lot
  of times officers would "fall" between the hits, as in I couldn't juggle
  them very effectively. Maybe it's just me, but a lot of the time I would hit
  someone with the first two blows, then the third would somehow just miss,
  allowing them to fall to the ground for much of the remaining musou.

  Sun Ce isn't really too horrible of a character overall, but I just could
  never enjoy playing as him. He's a fast attacker and has a decent move
  set, with a good crowd clearing musou. However his musou is pretty weak
  when it comes to attacking individual officers as it juggles and is hard
  to land every hit. His horse attacking is terrible, and he can't even
  break boxes/urns while on a horse without a wind scroll, you'll have to
  actually get off. Due to this, he obviously suffers from range issues on
  the battlefield as well.

  Model 2: The same as her first model, but with different colors. Most of her
           clothes are purple in this model. Her shirt is now white instead
           of red, and her sleeves are purple and white. Her skirt is now red,
           and the cloth wrapped around it is purple and while as well. Her
           socks are completely purple.
  Model 3: This is her DW4 model. She has a red shirt on with large sleeves
           that are white near the shoulder then get bluer as they go down.
           She has a very short, dark blue skirt on. Her hair is in two
           pigtails on her head with two red flowers.
  Model 4: Much like her third model, but with some differences. Her shirt is
           the same, except the sleeves are now a white and light red color.
           Her skirt is a little longer and is purple, and she has some kind
           of design going around her upper left thigh. There are two large
           flowers on the sides of her head in her hair.

  The only thing I really like about Da Qiao is her regular S string. It's
  good for clearing out crowds and taking down officers as well. Other than
  her SST(+T), I don't find too much to brag about with the rest of her T
  strings. Her T is useless considering the large amount of lag it takes,
  and I don't care for her musou either. It has a very short range, and doesn't
  do much damage to individual officers, even if you get most hits in. Like
  Sun Shang Xiang, her horse attacking is slow and pointless. This isn't helped
  by her heavy fourth weapon, either.

 -> Rating: 2.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  I find Xiao Qiao to be pretty much similar to Da Qiao, perhaps a little bit
  better. Her SST(+T) is decent for damage as well as clearing crowds at the
  end, and her SSSSST(+T) is essentially just a shorter musou. Speaking of
  which, her musou is probably one of the coolest ones in the game, but far
  from the most practical. It's good at ripping through crowds, but it's
  pretty difficult to land consecutive hits on a single officer. But when you
  do, it's deadly. Her S string, while decent, isn't as good as Da Qiao's.
  Her heavy weapon doesn't help her, either.

           outfit. He has a hat wrapped around the top of his head that has

           through it.
  Model 2: The same as his first model, except now the robe and armor are red
           and gold in color. His pants underneath are a lighter gray. His
           right sleeve is also red with some gold designs on it.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. He has an armor chest plate that extends
           down to his thighs. It's dark gray/black in color with red and gold
           outlines and designs on it. He has an armor plate on his left
           shoulder as well which is just barely visible. His pants on
           underneath are a dark gray. He's wearing a red cape that has frills
           coming off the shoulders. He's wearing a battle helmet that has a
           large ornament coming out of the top of it.
  Model 4: Similar to his third model, except now his armor is mostly silver.
           His helmet is also different in the fact that now there is a silver
           plate covering all of his face except for his eyes.

 -> Rating: 4/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Zhou Tai is one of my favorite characters, so perhaps my rating is a bit
  biased, but I don't care. His S string is great, and his T string is very
  good as well. With horse combat similar to that of Ma Chao and Pang De he
  can be a beast on the horse, unfortunately there is no horse stat on his
  fourth weapon. However with a horned helm he'll be good to go. But his best
  feature is his wicked musou, which will destroy officers and crowds alike.
  Plus it just look badass. I also like the sound his sword makes as he
  slices through enemies. Personally, though, I feel as if he's been nerfed
  a little from DW4. However, he's still a beast in my opinion.

           of his outfit. However now his clothes are almost completely
           white, with some gold outlines. He hair is also down now, and not
           in a ponytail.
  Model 4: Again, similar to all of the previous models except with different
           colors. Now his clothes are mostly purple, with the areas in the
           middle being a much darker purple, as well as the sash around his
           waist. His hair is also down and not in a ponytail.

 -> Rating: 4/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Ling Tong is super-fast, and it makes him quite deadly. His S string and
  his musou are great at just ripping through crowds and officers alike due
  to his extremely high attacking speed. His T string is pretty good with a
  nice SSST, although his SST(+T) is just a series of roundhouse kicks. But
  coupled with a pretty good fourth weapon and Ling Tong is one deadly force
  to be reckoned with.

           is a darker purple underneath and white on the outside, with a

           wearing two small white pieces of cloth around her upper arms. There
           is a pink bow in her hair.
  Model 4: This is similar to the dress she's wearing in model 3, except it's
           a bit shorter. This one is cut off at the knees. It is also a
           mixture of a light and dark pink instead of white. There is also
           some purple in the designs on her dress, and the cloth wrapped
           around her waist is purple as well.

 -> Rating: 1.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Personally I find Diao Chao to be one of the worst characters in the game.
  Her range is awful with her weapons, as is her entire S string and the
  majority of her T string. Her heavy weapon makes her attacking even more
  unbearable as it's extremely slow. And her musou is downright awful; even
  if you connected every hit with an officer it will do mediocre damage. Not
  to mention the fact that it's completely useless with taking out even half
  of a crowd of soldiers.

  Model 1: Lu Bu's default model. His entire upper body is covered with armor,
           including a chest plate and two shoulder guards. He has a red and
           yellow fabric draped across the left side of his chest plate, and
           the buckle wrapped around his waist has some sort of demon face on
           it. He's wearing two armor plates on his thighs, with a large skirt
           on underneath. The hat on his head has two long strands coming out
           of the top that extend down to his lower back.
  Model 2: Same as his first model, but with different colors. Most of the
           armor on his body now is silver and white in color. There is some
           areas of yellow and purple around his mid-section.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. Again, just about his entire body is covered
           in armor. The two armor plates on his shoulders have spikes coming
           out of the top of them. His armor is mostly gold, with red along
           the edges. However his arm guards are purple, as is a small portion
           of his chest plate and the sash around his waist. His clothes on
           underneath the armor are black. He's still wearing a hat on his
           head with two long strands coming out of the top that extend down
           to his lower half.
  Model 4: Similar to his third model, except now his armor is mostly silver
           with gold around the edges. His clothes on underneath the armor are
           now white. The hat on his head is slightly larger around the base,
           but the strands coming out of it are pretty much the same.

 -> Rating: 5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  He's Lu Bu, what do you expect? Of course he's going to be amazing. His S
  string and T string are great, both at taking out crowds and officers alike.
  Spam his SST(+T) and SSSSST(+T) to absolutely destroy anything in your way.
  His musou is pretty much an average spear-user musou, and unfortunately it
  juggles, but it doesn't really matter as it's still going to tear enemies
  up. He has the best fourth weapon in the game, with major boosts to the
  four main stats. The horse +20 just makes him even better for mounted
  assault. But if you've played any of the other Dynasty Warriors games, did
  it really surprise you that Lu Bu is the best character in the game? I didn't
  think so...

           his version of a belt. He has two shoulder pads with spikes coming
           out of the top. His right sleeve is a salmon color and much larger
           then his left sleeve, which is purple and thinner instead. He's
           wearing a large hat on his head with two flaps coming off the back.
  Model 2: Same as his first model, except different colors. His armor is

           body is mostly a mixture of white and gold, as are his sleeves on
           his arms.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. The armor on his chest is a bunch of
           different colors: there is some black, gold, red, purple, pink and
           green. His clothes underneath are mainly purple. He has a small
           green and gold hat on his head.
  Model 4: Similar to his third model, except now his clothes are almost
           entirely gold and yellow. The armor on his chest is mostly yellow
           while his clothes underneath are a bright gold. His hat is different
           as well; it has large spikes going up and is golden.

 -> Rating: 3.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Dong Zhuo is pretty much just like all of the other sword users. He has a
  good S string and a decent T string. Of course his main feature is his
  devastating, non-juggling musou, like most other sword users. So all in all
  he's a pretty good character, and his fourth weapon is pretty good as well.

           armor on his chest, shoulders, and thighs. He has a long cape on
           that drapes down to his feet. He also has a battle helmet on that
           has a small tassel popping out of the top.
  Model 2: This is the same as his first model except with some different
           colors. His shirt and pants underneath his armor is actually the
           same mustard yellow color as his first model, however his armor
           plates are now a dark gray/purple color. His cape is now purple
           also, as well as his helmet.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. He is wearing a yellow robe with some
           orange in the middle. His belt buckle is a demons head with two
           large horns coming out of his head. He has armor on his upper arms
           and his upper legs that extends down to his knees. He also has an
           orangish cape on, and a battle helmet with a spike coming out of
           the top as well as a large gray tassel.
  Model 4: Same as his third model for the most part, and with different
           colors. His armor and robe are now a silver color, and his clothes
           underneath are a crimson red. His cape is red as well and has a
           large circular design in the middle. His hat is no longer a
           helmet, but a rather large square-ish looking hat.

 -> Rating: 4/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Again, another good sword user. However I believe Yuan Shao to be above that
  of Dong Zhuo in terms of swordsmanship. Of course his S string and his
  musou are great, that's to be expected of a sword user. Out of his T string,
  his best two attacks are his SST(+T) and his SSSSST, which is a great 360
  degree shockwave move. The only real bad thing about Yuan Shao, in my
  opinion, is his rather weak fourth weapon, with a horse and bow slot that
  could have been better used for something else.

           his hair that is gold, and also something similar on his forehead.
  Model 2: Similar to his first model, but with some different colors. Now his
           robe is almost entirely white, with some purple around the sleeves
           and in the back around his waist. His hair and beard are now white,
           making him look older.
  Model 3: This is his DW4 model. He is wearing yet another large robe that
           is a dark golden color, and almost brown on the back. Wrapped around
           his neck is a large cloth-like thing, that is red with some designs
           on it. He has a gold bandana around his head with two little things
           hanging off the sides around his ears.
  Model 4: Similar to his third model, except now his robe is more reddish
           at the bottom and a lighter gold up top. The main different is his
           hat, which is a big round golden helmet that looks rather goofy.

 -> Rating: 1/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Zhang Jiao is just awful, one of the worst, if not THE worst, in the game.
  At least in my opinion, of course. His S string is just goofy and all around
  bad; it has poor range and lacks any good crowd clearing abilities. Out of
  his T string his only really good attack is his SST(+T) which can deal some
  decent damage and has a 360 shockwave attack at the end for extra benefit.
  His SSSSST is decent for clearing immediate crowds, but that's if you can
  actually pull it off before he gets swarmed to death with attacks from peons.
  His musou is terrible as well, dealing weak damage to individual officers
  and not much in terms of crowd clearing abilities. His fourth weapon is
  pretty weak as well (fill +9, really?) but at least it has an attack boost
  on it. But still, Zhang Jiao is definitely a bottom tier character.

 -> Rating: 3/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Meng Huo isn't all that bad, but he's someone I could just never enjoy
  playing. Many of his moves are 360 attacks, so he's a good crowd clearer
  (especially his devastating musou) but he's very slow and has bad jump
  attacks. His T attack is actually only useful in getting around if you don't
  have a horse. In fact it's preferred over running; keep tapping T to move
  at a quicker rate then he runs. But still, you'll definitely want a horse
  if you're going to be using Meng Huo. Unfortunately his horse attacking is
  horrible except for his horse charge, which is really the only thing you
  should use if you're going to attacked with Meng Huo mounted. His fourth is
  pretty good as well.

  Zhu Rong is a beast, which surprised me when I first started playing as her
  and maxing her stats. Honestly I never really played as her in the previous
  Dynasty Warriors games, so I don't know if she was this good in the others,
  but she's definitely good in this one. Her musou is an absolute beast, as it
  tears through crowds and destroys officers health. She has a good deal of
  360 attacks, and her SST(+T) is a nice long distance attack. Her horse charge
  and musou are also very deadly as they are a 360 attack as well. But if you
  really want to kick some ass with Zhu Rong all you need to do is spam her
  musou, and since her fourth weapon has a nice fill +17 bonus, that shouldn't
  be too hard to do. Zhu Rong is definitely a top player in this game.

  training in the Emei Mountains, he received a magical text. He appeared
  suddenly before Cao Cao and taunted him, which got him imprisoned. Later,
  he mocked Cao Cao, who had him executed, but he didn't die, instead
  predicting Cao Cao's death and disappearing, causing Cao Cao to faint.

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Model 1: This is his default model. He is wearing a long gray and black robe
           that has some purple around his waist. In the middle of his chest
           is a white piece of cloth with a Tao symbol in the middle, and
           the same thing is on his back side. His hat is a large, cone-shaped
           white hat.
  Model 2: This is the same as his first model, except now his clothes are
           mostly gold in color. Pretty much everything is gold except for his
           pants and the little piece of cloth at his waist, which are a more
           brownish-orange color.
  Model 3: Similar to his first two models, but with a few differences. For
           one his robe is now almost completely white, with some darker
           areas around his waist. He is no longer wearing a hat, and his
           long white hair now flows down his back. I cannot tell if the
           symbol on his chest is still the Tao symbol or not, but it's some
           kind of design at least.
  Model 4: This is the same as his third model, except now his robe is almost
           completely black. His hair is black as well.

 -> Rating: 4.5/5
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Zuo Ci is one of my favorite characters, and also very deadly (which of
  course is one of the reasons I like him.) His attacks are definitely unique
  (what did you except from someone whose weapons were a deck of cards?) but
  they are not to be underestimated. He has very good range, even without a
  wind scroll, and his S string will tear up crowds of soldiers. His T string
  attacks are almost all excellent, most of them being great at clearing out
  crowds. Strangely enough I found his SST(+T) to be one of his weaker attacks,
  whereas with most other characters that can be one of their strongest. But
  it's still a decent attack for individual officers. His musou is excellent,
  especially his true musou which has an amazing crowd clearing finish. Plus
  his forth weapon is great, especially considering that it has fill +20 and
  musou +20, and is the only other weapon other than Lu Bu's that has the nice
  40 damage perk. His horse charge and musou are pretty decent as well. Zuo Ci
  is an all-around beast, that's for sure.

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  "My name is Zhao Yun. I am searching for a lord worthy of my loyalty so 
   that I may help bring peace to this troubled land. In this land of Ji, I
   joined Yuan Shao's army so that I could serve in the campaign against the
   Yellow Turbans. I fight only for those who value truth. But, is Yuan Shao
   really a master worth serving..."

 -> Battle of Ji Province
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "We defeated the Yellow Turbans. However, I know now that Yuan Shao is not
   a worthy master... Upon learning this, I left Yuan Shao's camp. I have
   traveled across the land in search of my true master. When I happened to
   visit Gongsun Zan, I learned that Yuan Shao had formed an army to defeat
   Dong Zhuo. Dong Zhuo is a traitor to the Han. This is the perfect
   opportunity to bring an end to this chaos. I have gone to serve Gongsun
   Zan and join the allied army against Dong Zhuo."

 -> Battle of Hu Lao Gate
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "Having left Gongsun Zan, I went and joined Liu Bei, whom I had met at the
   Battle of Hu Lao Gate. Due to his virtue and ambition, I have decided to
   go and serve under him. Now, Liu Bei is being chased by Cao Cao's army, who
   fears what he might become. Together with all the people that have chosen
   to follow him, we must somehow make it to Jiang Ling. These times are
   marked by their unpredictability. However, it is times like these when I
   must forge a new path for Liu Bei with my spear. We shall prevail!"

   Cao Cao of Wei and Sun Quan of Wu. However, many people were forced to
   give their lives in battle to realize this day. My lord is distraught over
   the deaths of his two sworn brothers, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei. In an effort
   to avenge Guan Yu's death by the hands of Wu, he advanced his army to Yi
   Ling. Despite my pleas that the true enemy of the land is Wei, not Wu, my
   lord refuses to listen. For the sake of Shu... We must win this battle!"

  "I am Guan Yu. To serve my sworn brother, Liu Bei, who vowed to rise against
   the chaos in the name of virtue. I shall raise my blade in battle until
   that day has come. In the Yellow Turban Campaign, my brother and I, along
   with our other sworn brother, Zhang Fei, volunteered to fight against the
   rebels. Together, we showed the land the strength of the three sworn
   brothers led by Liu Bei. And now, in order to defeat the traitorous Dong
   Zhuo, we have joined the allied army formed by the regional lords. My blade
   shall cut down those who stand in the way of justice!"

  "After Dong Zhuo's defeat, the land was splintered as various factions vied
   to control it for themselves. Although brother was awarded the lands of
   Xu, it was not long before he was attacked by Cao Cao. Following that
   battle, us three brothers were scattered and I agreed to serve under Cao
   Cao under the condition that I would leave once I learned where my brother
   was. That is how I wound up joining him in his quest to defeat Yuan Shao
   of Ji. I am worried about the safety of my brothers, but nevertheless, I

  "After a long journey, I was able to rejoin brother and Zhang Fei. Despite
   having no land to call our own, I know that this is where I truly belong.
   Now that we were back together, Cao Cao feared what we would become, so he
   decided to launch an attack against us. After managing to evade pursuit,
   we eventually joined forces with Wu and defeated Cao Cao's army at Chi Bi.
   And now, I have been ordered to chase after Cao Cao as he flees from Chi
   Bi. However, I still owe much to Cao Cao. I don't know if I can face
   him..."

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "With our victory at Chi Bi, we have gained much momentum. Brother has
   obtained the lands of Jing and Shu, thus splitting the land in three
   between us, Wei and Wu. The way things have been going, it appears that
   Cao Cao and Sun Quan have joined forces. It would seem that they both have
   their eyes on this land of Jing that has been left under my charge.
   Looking to make the first move and take advantage of the situation, I
   marched on Fan Castle in Xiang Yang. For the sake of brother's quest for
   the land... my spear shall cry out to the heavens!"

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  "I'm Zhang Fei. Together with my sworn brothers, Liu Bei and Guan Yu, I
   have vowed to bring peace to this chaotic land. During the Yellow Turban
   Campaign, we fought hard and were evaluated pretty highly. So we decided
   to join the regional lords in their coalition to bring down Dong Zhuo.
   This Dong Zhuo character just ignores the imperial court and does as he
   wishes! He must pay for this. I'll go out and bring back his hide!"

 -> Battle of Hu Lao Gate
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "After defeating Dong Zhuo, one thing led to another and brother was placed
   in charge of the lands of Xu. But then that damn Lu Bu came along and
   messed everything up. He just came along and showed brother no respect
   whatsoever. To make things worse, he somehow managed to steal Xia Pi Castle
   from me! He'll pay for this sooner or later... We teamed up with Cao Cao
   and are setting out for Xia Pi. Ah! I'll smash him up good! I'm not going
   to hold anything back in this battle!"

 -> Battle of Xia Pi
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "A short time after defeating Lu Bu, Cao Cao came and attacked us. I got
   separated from my brothers for the time being. After meeting up with my
   brothers again, some guy named Zhuge Liang became our strategist. That
   must've made Cao Cao angry, because he came and attacked again. Perhaps
   we should flee to Jiang Ling... But we have to take our people with us,
   making it difficult to escape. Cao Cao's army has already caught up with
   us here at Chang Ban. Well, it looks like this is a job for me..."

 -> Battle of Chang Ban
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "Somehow, we managed to escape from Chang Ban and then joined forces with
   Sun Quan. Together, we pounded Cao Cao into the ground. That should shut
   him up for a while. But brother still has a problem. Without a land to call
   his own, he can never realize his ambitions. Therefore, we have decided
   to attack the land of Cheng Du which is controlled by Liu Zhang. Brother
   doesn't look very good. I guess it's because he's stealing the lands of
   another person. But, simply overlooking his problems will never allow him
   to build a land of virtue. We've got no choice!"

 -> Battle of Cheng Du
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "Brother has obtained the lands of Shu. Now he'll be able to stand on equal
   footing with Cao Cao and Sun Quan. I think this calls for a drink! But we
   can't just sit and celebrate. Guan Yu has taken some troops from Jing in
   an effort to attack Fan Castle in Xiang Yang. Normally, we'd have nothing
   to fear, but this time, Cao Cao and Sun Quan have joined forces against
   us. I must use my strength to help brother!"

   I with his virtue and politeness, that I agreed to serve as his strategist.

   Han...? It became clear that I must take the matter into my own hands. I
   set out to seek the guidance of the brilliant strategist Zhuge Liang.
   According to Zhuge Liang, I must escape the grip of Cao Cao and defend
   myself from the Sun Family to establish my own kingdom. By winning the
   hearts of the people, I will one day rule the land!"

  "Thanks to Zhuge Liang's strategy, we were able to drive Cao Cao from Chang
   Ban. We then formed a pact against Cao Cao with Sun Quan. Our combined
   army came face to face with Cao Cao at Chi Bi. Thanks to the heroic
   efforts of officers from both our Kingdoms, we managed to lay waste to his
   great fleet. Right now, Cao Cao is attempting to flee from the battlefield
   that burns around him. At last, we have the upper hand. If I am to realize

   This move will be the catalyst that splits the land into three divisions.

   can't help but question the virtue of stealing land from a member of my
   own family..."

   Fei, too, has been murdered - killed by his own men as he prepared to
   avenge Guan Yu. Responsibility for these tragedies falls directly on Wu!
   They shall feel my rage... and pay for my brothers' deaths with everything
   that they own! Nothing else matters now! I can hear only the beating of my
   angry heart, and it is screaming for revenge! Revenge against the Sun
   Family for Zhang Fei and Guan Yu!"

  "I fought Wu at Yi Ling, but was unable to slay their lord, Sun Quan. I
   rushed into that battle driven purely by hatred... and completely ignoring
   my true purpose. Now, Wu has regrouped and come to attack me at Bai Di
   Castle. Just by looking at their formation, I can tell that they have come
   here seeking my head. Since we parted ways after the battle at Chi Bi, I
   have come into conflict with Wu a number of times. Now I must end this

   best way to shut him up is to attack his weak point. So let's go and take

   defeat Wei. Meanwhile, it seems that Wu has set their sights on Bai Di
   Castle. Bah, I should be able to handle this okay. When this battle is

   like Guan Ping, Lord Liu Chan must change as well. I feel this kind of

   The only other person I deemed a hero of the land, Liu Bei, has already
   left this world, leaving behind Zhuge Liang to govern things in his place.
   Shu is nothing without Liu Bei and I shall soon put an end to it

   our lord's way on his quest to bring an end to the chaos! ...Or something
   like that. Word of our lord spread after defeating the Yellow Turbans and
   Dong Zhuo. This time, he is allying himself with Liu Bei in order to defeat
   Lu Bu. He's going to become even more famous! Lu Bu is a dangerous man
   who betrayed his own lord and is a general nuisance to the rest of the
   land. We can't let one such as this just run free!"

 -> Battle of Xia Pi
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

  "The defeat of Lu Bu improved our lord's reputation throughout the central

   else?! But that annoying Yuan Shao still remains in control of Hua Bei.
   Although he and Cao Cao were childhood friends, he apparently is jealous
   of our lord's success and sent his armies to attack us. My lord... Is it
   really okay for us to right him? I feel bad fighting this guy simply
   because compared to you, he's so... weak."

 -> Battle of Guan Du
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "Well, there's no way our lord will ever lose to this guy. Oh how the
   ability of a ruler makes all the difference. Our lord soon took over Jing,
   which is known for its granaries. He then decided to get rid of the
   meddling Liu Bei and Sun Quan and we marched towards Chi Bi along the
   Chang Jiang. The Chang Jiang... That means we'll be using ships. I guess
   it won't really matter where we fight. Me and my bow will take out

   of Lu Bu and Diao Chan. For a lord to be killed by his own trusted
   vassal... As a result, Lu Bu was branded a traitor and forced to leave
   the capital. I joined him and we wandered about aimlessly until he managed
   to seize Xia Pi Castle from Liu Bei and made it his new home. I do not
   think Lu Bu's actions are just. However I still yearn to test myself. To

   him. Who could have known that there would be one to rival me beneath the

   fleeing alongside his people... Must I really attack innocent peasants

 -> Legend of Zhou Yu
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  "My name is Zhou Yu. Many people jokingly refer to me as the Handsome Zhou
   Yu. I simply enjoy music and honing my skills on the battlefield. I have a
   dream that my beloved lord, Sun Ce, and I may one day realize a world free
   from the chaos and united in a new era of peace under the Kingdom of Wu.
   As a first step towards that goal, today we decided to join the alliance
   against the evil Dong Zhuo. I shall be as the wind and strike down this
   evil traitor!"

 -> Battle of Si Shui Gate
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "We defeated Hua Xiong and took control of Si Shui Gate without difficulty.
   Sun Ce, whom we left in charge of Wu, seemed rather envious of us when
   we told him about the battle. But, a land of peace is still far away. It
   appears that the various regional lords used this as an opportunity to
   try to seize power for themselves. Now, I serve Sun Jian and have been
   sent to do battle with Liu Biao of Jing. This time, Sun Ce will participate
   in this battle. If Sun Ce and I are together, there is no way we can lose
   to the likes of Liu Biao, but... why do I feel so uneasy..."

 -> Battle of Jing Province
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "We emerged victorious from the battle for Jing, but we lost Sun Jian to
   an arrow attack. I have learned the reason for my uneasiness, but it is
   alas too late... However, Wu still has Sun Ce. He shall carry on the will
   of his father and assume the great undertaking that the land requires of
   him. I am prepared to give my life in order to realize the ambitions of
   Wu. Let's go, Sun Ce! Now is the time for our ambitions to resound across
   the land!"

 -> Battle of the Wu Territory
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "Urgh... How could this happen now? With the Wu territory under our control,
   our time was just beginning, but apparently the Heavens disagreed and Sun
   Ce was taken by illness... No matter how much I cry, it will not bring
   back Sun Ce. Now, I must serve Sun Quan as my new leader and work to help
   build up the Wu kingdom. First, we must go and get our revenge on the
   despicable Huang Zu at Jiang Xia for killing Sun Jian. The Kingdom of Wu
   shall yield to no man!"

 -> Battle of Xia Kou
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "After overcoming various hardships, Wu was able to make a play at bringing
   the land under its power. Now is the time for us to establish control
   over the central plains. The biggest obstacle in our way is Cao Cao. There
   are some amongst us who fear his strength and advocate surrender. But I am
   different. I say we go and face Cao Cao head on! My friend Sun Ce would
   never recommend yielding to Cao Cao. It is the obligation of all of us
   within Wu to continue the fight and carry on the will of Sun Ce's spirit!"

 -> Legend of Lu Xun
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  "I am Lu Xun. Although I am still young, I shall give my best and
   continually strive to better myself for the glory of the Wu Kingdom. The
   other day, in the showdown with Wei and Shu, I said that we should not
   overly involve ourselves and instead focus on controlling the south. My
   lord agreed with me and we set out on a campaign to invade the south. If
   we want to rule all three divisions of this land, we must first suppress
   these foreign enemies and absorb them into our own forces. Let us show
   the land the extent of our power!"

 -> The Invasion of Nan Zhong
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "Having conquered the south, it was time to wholeheartedly engage the three-
   way struggle between us, Wei and Shu. We decided to make our move with
   the capture of Jing. Just then, Guan Yu advanced his army on Wei's Fan
   Castle. Taking advantage of this opportunity, I proposed to Lu Meng that
   we join forces with Wei to defeat Guan Yu. The mere presence of heroes
   is enough to alter the threads of fate. I must use all of my wisdom to
   defeat the God of War, Guan Yu, and lead the people towards a land ruled
   by the Sun Family and Wu!"

 -> Battle of Fan Castle
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "After defeating Guan Yu, things were just starting for Lu Meng, but he took
   ill and left this world. And there was so much more that I had hoped to
   learn from him... Based on a recommendation by Lu Meng, I was appointed
   to the role of commander. I have quite a legacy to fulfill, with Zhou Yu
   and Lu Meng having come before me... The responsibility is overwhelming.
   In my first battle as commander, I participated in the battle against Shu
   at Yi Ling. Certainly, Master Zhuge Liang has some sort of ingenious plot
   waiting for us. We must go and crush them with all of our might!"

 -> Battle of Yi Ling
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "Following the battle at Yi Ling, Liu Bei departed this world without
   realizing his dreams. I foresee the strength of Shu crumbling without its
   virtuous leader to hold things together. Shu is trapped. So, our best move
   is to attack Wei. We shall go forth and strike the giant castle they built
   at He Fei and defeat Cao Pi. If the land is split in two between Wei and
   Wu, then it will be difficult for us to proceed. Now, while the land is
   still divided in three, is the time to defeat the looming threat of Wei!"

 -> Battle of He Fei Castle
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "We, the people of Wu, emerged victorious at the decisive battle at He Fei.
   The Hero of Chaos, Cao Cao, along with the army that the built to realize
   his ambitions, have disappeared for good. Finally, we have come to the
   final battle for the land against Shu. Even though the enemy is certain
   to be planning strategies against us, there is no way that they can stop
   us now. If we can win this battle, the chaos that has long plagued the
   land shall come to an end. For the sake of those people that shall follow
   us, we must not lose this battle!"

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  "I am Taishi Ci. My lord Liu Yong controls these lands of Wu, but a man
   known as Sun Ce is after them for himself. The enemy is spread all around
   us. They appear to be intent on expelling us from these lands. I know what
   I must do. I must go and destroy them all. I hear that the enemy leader
   Sun Ce is very brave, and that he has a certain natural appeal that wins
   over anyone he meets... I must go and see if these rumors are true."

 -> Battle of the Wu Territory
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "In the midst of all the fighting, I met Sun Ce and decided to join him
   and help him realize his ambitions. However, shortly thereafter, Sun Ce
   was killed in battle. We must save the grieving for later... First, we
   must realize the ambitions that Sun Ce left behind. We must show those
   ambitions to a new world! Sun Ce's younger brother, Sun Quan, has taken
   over as ruler and I have started down a new path. With my might, I shall
   lead Wu towards unifying the land!"

 -> Battle of Xia Kou
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "We solidified our position at Jiang Dong and, together with Liu Bei,
   defeated Cao Cao's army at Chi Bi. We formed our own kingdom to fight for
   control of the land with Liu Bei and Cao Cao. And now, as per our agreement
   with Liu Bei, we are marching on He Fei. The Wei army is stationed there,
   so we can defeat them and take the land. Taking the lands of He Fei will
   be just as if we were launching a strike on Wei's main base. We must win
   this battle and realize Sun Ce's ambition!"

   the time I spent with Sun Ce was quite short. However, Sun Ce's ambition
   and spirit continue to drive me forward even stronger than ever! Watch
   this, Sun Ce! Now, I shall use all of my might to build a new world! I
   shall be victorious in my quest to unit the land under Wu!"

   I'm very proud of my skill. These days, wars are breaking out all over the
   land. It's a tough time to live in, but it's also the perfect time for me
   to prove myself! I'm not going to just stay home any more while my father
   and brothers go off to fight. They raised me like a warrior, and that's
   exactly what I'm going to be!"

 -> Battle of Jing Province
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "First, my beloved father was fatally wounded in a battle with Liu Biao.
   And just as I was about to finally put it behind me, my brother Ce also
   passed away from this world... Luckily, my brother Quan was able to
   overcome his grief and become the next to lead our family. He joined forces
   with Liu Bei and defeated Cao Cao's fleet at Chi Bi. Now it's time to head
   for the battlefield again. I wonder who this Liu Bei is that is fighting
   alongside us? I hope I get the chance to meet him."

 -> Escape from Chi Bi
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "After the battle at Chi Bi, my marriage was arranged to Liu Bei. He was a
   big help in saving us from the invasion by Cao Cao. I'm sure he and I
   would get along great together. However, just after I left to go to him,
   I was suddenly called back home. Then it occurred to me; I was being used
   in a plot against Liu Bei. I hope you can forgive me, Liu Bei. I really
   did have true feelings for you. I hope we can still meet again. I really
   do..."

 -> Battle of He Fei
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "We won the battle at He Fei. It was then decided that we should subdue
   the barbarian king Meng Huo in the south. Another battle... but I feel a
   little relieved. At least tensions have subsided with Shu, so we won't be
   fighting against Liu Bei for a while. Meng Huo's barbarians are said to
   share a strong sense of unity, but no one's as unified as we are here in
   Wu. They'll be no match for the Sun Family's strength!"

 -> The Invasion of Nan Zhong
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "We have settled the southern lands, so we will renew our conflicts with 
   Shu and Wei. Once again, I will be forced to fight against my dear Liu
   Bei... Liu Bei has declared war on us over the death of his brother, Guan
   Yu. I understand the anger and pain he must feel, for I, too, have lost
   members of my family... We have no choice but to fight. I wish I didn't
   have to face Liu Bei, but no matter how I feel about him, my family will
   always come first!"

   named Zhang Jiao has started a rebellion with a gang he calls the Yellow
   Turbans. I have joined an army that was created especially to oppose him.
   But even if we defeat these rebels, I fear the land cannot return to the
   peace it once knew. If that is so, then I, Sun Jian, will create a new

   tragedy. My son, who was watching over Jiang Dong, suddenly passed away.
   I've never known such pain as this. But I cannot let my grief overcome me.
   For the sake of my other two children, Quan and Shang Xiang, I must raise
   my spirits and continue to fight. We are currently hosting Liu Bei, a
   warrior of strong virtue. At his request, we are joining forces against
   our common enemy, Cao Cao. Soon we will be locked in combat at Chi Bi!"

 -> Battle of Chi Bi
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "The battle at Chi Bi ended in victory for us. Cao Cao's power has been
   diminished, and Liu Bei took control of Shu. Thus the land has been divided
   among us three. Now, as we all vie for each other's territory, Liu Bei
   wants us to join him again in an attack on Wei at He Fei. I must admit, he
   is very cunning. There must be an ulterior motive behind his words. Still,
   Wu cannot pass up the chance to take He Fei. We'll continue to cooperate
   with him, at least for now!"

 -> Battle of He Fei
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "My army has achieved victory again at He Fei. However, we were unable to
   wipe Wei out completely, and ultimately we failed to gain any new ground.
   On the other hand, relations with Liu Bei have worsened. In a struggle for
   control of Jing, my army caused the death of his sworn brother Guan Yu.
   Enraged, Liu Bei is leading a vast army against us. Some man of virtue...
   He ignored his own principals to gain his land, and now he does it again to
   seek revenge. Alright then, Liu Bei... I shall put an end to your
   righteousness!"

 -> Battle of Yi Ling
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "Liu Bei has died, possibly from the shame we dealt him at Yi Ling. Without
   its virtuous leader, Shu is sure to plunge into chaos. It will be left wide
   open to attack. We can conquer Shu now whenever we want. Therefore, the
   time has come to focus all of our energy on the last remaining threat, the
   Kingdom of Wei. Control of Wei has been passed on to Cao Pi, but he is said
   to be just as crafty as his father, Cao Cao. We're as ready as we'll ever
   be. Let's take Wei down for good!"

 -> Battle of He Fei Castle
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  [After battle]
  "We have defeated Cao Pi, bringing our long conflict with Wei to an end.
   All that remains now is to clean up what's left of Shu, and the age of Wu
   will begin! Unfortunately, Shu has unexpectedly rebounded under the guidance
   of Zhuge Liang. Their defenses are strong, and they will be ready for our
   attack. Then again, I guess the final battle wouldn't be any fun if it
   wasn't a challenge! My family has fought hard to make it this far, and we
   won't give up until the entire land is ours!"

   probably attack our territory soon. He is dangerous, but Zhou Yu and I have
   decided to engage him in battle. We will also be assisted by Liu Bei, who

   the far corners of the land. Following the battle, Liu Bei used our
   territory in Jing to launch an attack on Yi. He's a crafty one, alright.
   Now he wants us to help him strike He Fei. It looks like he's still

   us into battle. The result: Dong Zhuo was defeated and the name of our lord

   He Fei. I don't know why, but our lord agreed to it. Why should we go and

   for 'em. It makes me burn with fury that these people just walk right in to
   another person's land and try to take it as their own!"

  "It appears that we've gained a little fame after defeating those Yellow
   Turbans. But now, some folks calling themselves Wu have decided to come
   down and face us. Sure, I've heard of the great lands of Wu. If we win
   here, then my husband shall be known as a Great King without equal. We have
   to somehow make it through this! So, I wonder how Wu would like themselves
   cooked? Charbroiled over an open flame? I think I can arrange that for
   them!"

  "After defeating Wu, we did have a moment's peace... But now, Shu has come
   from the north leading a large army to attack us. I'm sure that this battle
   will prove difficult to handle. But we have the greatest King of all time,
   my husband, on our side. The Great King of Nan Zhong, Meng Huo. Now that's
   a husband a girl can be proud of! Together, we'll protect this land from
   all those that would try and take it!"

Free mode allows you to play individual stages that you play as you progress
through each characters musou mode. There are 34 total free mode stages, not
all of which are available from the start. In order to unlock new stages on
free mode you must play them in a musou mode.

There's a few advantages to free mode. For one, it allows you to play any
battle you want without having to go through several others if you wanted to
play it in a musou mode. You can also select your difficulty before entering
the battle - either easy, normal, hard, or chaos. This provides you with a
better opportunity to get better items or bodyguards, as you have to option to
choose harder stages and you can raise the difficulty level. Free mode is also
a good way to improve on your characters stats and to max them out.

Each stage has a difficulty rating - one to five stars. Obviously a one star
stage is the easiest, and a five star stage is the hardest. Generally speaking
the later stages in the game have higher difficulties, but this is not always
the case. Use these difficulty ratings as a guide to what stages would be best
for maxing stats and getting the best items and bodyguards.

Most stages have two playable sides, some have only one, and only one stage
has three playable sides. In this section of the guide I will cover basic
strategies to easily beating each free mode stage. I'll include all information
about what officers are in the battle, as well as the winning and losing
objectives. One thing you'll need to realize is exactly where you start out on
the map depends on what character you choose to play as. The way I'll walk you
through each battle, it doesn't really matter where you start out, I'll tell
you what your main objective will be and where to go from there. In case you're
wondering though, when writing this section, I played all battles using Ma
Chao, and on battles where Ma Chao was a designated officer I played as Lu Bu.

Officers that have a star (*) next to their name under the enemy forces section
are officers that are not there at the start of the battle, but either arrive
as reinforcements or after certain criteria is met.

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

This battle is pretty straightforward. Go towards the attack base right in
front of you and capture it. Going inside will trigger a cutscene of a large
log rolling in front of the bridge near your area. You'll see a battle message
saying "Zhang Liang's sorcery is impeding our march!" So basically you can't
use that bridge right now, but no big deal. Go over and approach Deng Mao and
kill him. Now go over to the hill leading up to the next area. Once you get
near it, Cheng Yuanzhi will appear and will start dropping rocks down the
hill. Just dodge the rocks, run up and kill Cheng Yuanzhi. This will stop the
rocks from falling down the hill, plus it will open up a path to the next area
in front of you. Secure the enemy checkpoint while you're up there and continue
towards Zhang Liang's unit.

Take out Zhang Liang, this will cause the log to disappear and Dong Zhuo's
unit will cross the bridge. Might as well take out the enemy base and
checkpoint in this area as well. Now continue through the small connecting
tunnel to the north and a phantom army will appear. Take out Zhang Bao to get
rid of these guys, then secure the checkpoint and enemy base also. Now the
only thing left to do is go kill Zhang Jiao, and you've won the battle. Ma Teng
and Han Sui will join you after a little while to help you out, although I
doubt you'll really need it.

YELLOW TURBANS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok first of all forget about the three enemy officers that are near where you
start (Hu Zhen, Dong Min, and Niu Fu.) Head straight for the neutral base
and run inside it to claim it as your own. Now you should see a message
appear saying that Zhang Liang has been isolated and to lead him to the base
that you just claimed, so let's do just that. Head over to Zhang Liang and
enter the enemy base that he's in front of. Kill the guard captain to take the
base, and you might as well kill Li Ru while you're there too. Taking the base
will make Zhang Liang head back to your base, so follow him and escort him
there. Once Zhang Liang makes it inside the rolling log will now appear,
cutting off that route for the enemy.

Now take out Hu Zhen, Dong Min, and Niu Fu. They shouldn't be too difficult.
Ma Chao will probably show up as reinforcements right about now, he'll be in
the same area as the last three you just took out. Let him suffer the same
fate, and now make your way over to the other side of the map. Kill Xu Rong
and Hua Xiong, and make your way up the hill towards Dong Zhuo. As you get near
the enemy camp Li Jue will show up in the one enemy base, just take him out.
Now go and take down Dong Zhuo to win. After a while Guo Si will arrive as
reinforcements for Dong Zhuo, but the battle should be over before that even
happens (unless your character is rather weak.)

YUAN SHAO'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For starters take down the enemy base to the left of the central path. Now
go down the center path and kill both He Yi and Bo Zhang. Zhang Jiao will be
praying at the altar, and will soon succeed in summoning a tornado on the
hill leading up to the altar. Once that's done he'll start retreating to the
main camp, just let me retreat for now. The tornado is small and easy to out
run, so just run past it and make your way up the hill and to the altar. Once
you approach the altar Pei Yuan Shao will increase the defenses around the
altar, but all that means is just a few more easily dispatched soldiers. Kill
Pei Yuan Shao to capture the altar and put a stop to the tornado.

Now let's go help your buddies who are attacking along the other route. Make
your way down the right path from the altar and head towards Cheng Yuanzhi.
Might as well capture the two enemy bases along the way (the first one can be
avoided, the second one you must at least go through.) Kill Cheng Yuanzhi and
secure the enemy checkpoint. Eventually Zhao Yun will show up at the checkpoint
here, take him down once he does.

The quickest way to the enemy camp now is straight up and to the path on the
right, where Zhang Liang is. But if you want Zhang Bao's dropped item, you can
always go defeat him too. Either way just cut your way to Zhang Jiao and kill
him to finish the battle.

YELLOW TURBANS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head straight to the alter and kill the defense captain to reclaim the alter.
Now head up and defeat Yuan Shang and clear the northern area of enemies. Take
down the enemy base while you're there as well. Soon you'll get a message
saying that Zhang Bao is struggling, so head over to him to help him out. By
this time Zhang Jiao should reach the alter and will start praying. Go defeat
Yuan Xi to secure Zhang Bao's unit.

Around this time Zhang Jiao will finish his prayer and summon a tornado at
the central path leading up to the alter. However Yuan Shao's army will
continue marching, and Zhang Jiao will have Zhang Bao come to the alter for
more power. Just head down the central path and start taking out enemies while
Zhang Bao heads for the alter. You'll run into Tian Feng; take him out. Keep
advancing forward, taking out Yan Liang, Guo Tu, and Wen Chou. Soon Zhang Bao
will increase the strength of the tornado, but at this point it shouldn't
really matter much.

You can either continue forward and just kill Yuan Shao to put an end to the
battle or you can go finish off Ju Shou if your allies haven't by now. Either
way the battle should be coming to an end fairly quickly.

DONG ZHUO'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The first two things you'll want to do are take the enemy bases on the
northeast and southwest corners of the map. This will prevent Cheng Yin and
Hou Xuan showing up as reinforcements. While you're at the southwest base you
might as well take out Liang Xing as well.

Now all you really need to focus on is just defeating the remaining enemy
officers in the middle and taking the last three enemy bases. Han Sui and
Yang Qiu go down easy, so take them out first. Then get rid of the bases to
lower enemy morale. Now it's time to take out Ma Chao and Pang De, who,
annoyingly enough, are both in hyper mode. However neither of them get any
kind of STAT+ perk or go into musou rage mode, so they aren't too hard to take
out.

After a little while Fan Chou and Li Jue will arrive as reinforcements for
Dong Zhuo, which will help boost some morale in case you're having any trouble.
Shortly after Cheng Yi will show up in Ma Teng's camp as reinforcements, so
quickly take him out, which shouldn't be too much trouble. Now all that's left
is to kill Ma Teng.

ALLIED FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ma Chao will head for the southwestern base, and Han Sui will head for the
northeastern base, but forget them, just do it yourself. Do take those two
bases so your reinforcements can arrive. Take down Niu Fu and Guo Si while
you're at it.

Shortly after that's done Ma Teng will order you to secure Dong Zhuo's
checkpoints to prevent their two reinforcements, Fan Chou and Li Jue, from
showing up. So go do just that. Dong Min and Xu Rong are also near each of
the checkpoints so kill them in the process. Now all that's left to do is
take the two remaining enemy bases and defeat Hua Xiong.

Dong Zhuo's main unit will arrive shortly. And then, shortly after that,
Zhang Ji and Hu Zhen will show up in the southwest and northeast corners of
the map. Quickly go take them out before they cause any trouble, then go
finish off Dong Zhuo to end the battle.

MENG HUO'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go forward and defeat Dong Tu Na and take the enemy base that he's right next
to. Forget about Ahui Nan for now, we'll get him later. Go to the left side of
the map and take out King Mulu. Be careful though because he has elephant and
beast units all around him; in fact he's on an elephant himself. Once he's
been taken care of go north and take out Wu Tugu and secure that enemy
checkpoint. By now King Duosi will have pushed down to the area where Ahui Nan
is, so let's circle around and hit them from behind. You might as well also
secure that northern checkpoint on your way there. Take out both Ahui Nan and
King Duosi while you're there.

Thought it was over? Not yet. Now the Governor of Nan Zhong will attack you
from the north. The victory conditions have now changed: now you must defeat
Yong Kai, Gao Ding and Zhu Bao to finally win. So let's do just that. Go and
defeat Yong Kai first, then Gao Ding, and finally Zhu Bao. Or in whatever
order you wish, it doesn't really matter.

YELLOW TURBANS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You don't really have much of a choice in the beginning except to go and
defeat King Duosi in order to open up the two gates leading to the rest of the
map. There is a small patch of land right where King Duosi is, go there to
fight him, don't fight him in the poison swap (for obvious reasons.) His
sub-general, Ahui Nan will be right there with him too, so be careful. After
this is done Zhang Jiao will cure you and your allies of the poison and you
will now be immune to it, and a few Nanman soldiers will join you. Also, the
north and south gates will open. Let's take the south gate.

When you enter the southern area Zhang Bao will convert some more enemy troops.
Secure the two checkpoints in this area and take down King Mulu, but be
careful because he's on en elephant and is surrounded by a few more elephant
units. Now move forward and take the enemy base, and continue towards Dailai
Dongzhu. Once Dailai Dongzhu is defeated, Zhang Bao and the units still at the
poison swamp will probably be struggling, so let's backtrack and go help them
out. Zhu Rong will be pushing them by this point. Defeat Jinhuan Sanjie, who
should be hanging out up around there by now, and now let's go through the
northern gate. Make your way through the north part of the map now, defeating
Zhu Rong and Wu Tugu as you make your way back down to the enemy camp. Defeat
Meng You and then Meng Huo to end the battle.

NANMAN FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The first thing you have to do is go north and defeat Pei Yuan Shao and Zhang
Jiao, who will be attacking your enemy camp along with some phantom soldiers.
This is annoying because Zhang Jiao has commander defense, meaning he's going
to take a lot of hits to kill. Luckily though, one of the soldiers in that
ground with them will drop a musou rage token, so you can use that against
him. Once Zhang Jiao is defeated the phantom army is disappear, and Zhang Jiao
will show up back in the enemy camp. Then he will convert a bunch of allied
soldiers near your camp, just quickly dispose of them.

Once the area outside the main camp is mostly clear of enemies, let's head
north and rescue Wu Tugu. Do this by simply killing Zhang Bao. Once that's
taken care of continue along the path into the poison swamp area. Ignore
pushing into the enemy camp for now, and continue through the south gate to
go and save King Mulu, who is probably neck-deep in enemies right now. Kill
Zhang Liang to rescue King Mulu, and if the enemy took control of the neutral
base down there before you could get to it then take that down too.

Now it's King Duosi who needs to be rescued up at the swamp. Must you have to
do everything? Bo Zhang should be pushed out into the swamp area by now, so
run up to him and hack him down to rescue King Duosi. Now it's finally time to
push the enemy camp. Go through the enemy base and take it while you do.

Zhang Jiao and Guan Hai will be right next to each other, so take down Guan
Hai first, then Zhang Jiao to finish things up.

HAN FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Depending on where you start, you'll either take the left, middle, or right
path first. It doesn't really matter, but basically you want to defeat these
three enemy officers first: Zhang Bao, Zhang Liang, and Zhang Man Cheng.
Zhang Bao will order a rockslide as you come up the left path towards the
altar, Zhang Liang will summon a tornado that patrols the right path leading to
the altar, and Zhang Man Cheng will turn Han Dang against you if he finishes
his prayer. To stop all of these events, simply kill each individual enemy
officer.

Once those three are dealt with go take out He Yi. Kill one of the gate
captains outside of the main castle to open the door. Once you step foot inside
the castle you'll be greeted by a friendly phantom army. To get rid of these
guys just go up onto the altar and destroy the four glowing goblet-like
shrines. Now the phantom army is gone and all that is left to do is to go up
to the platform above the altar and kill Zhang Jiao.

YELLOW TURBANS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since you'll probably start up by the main castle, the first thing you'll want
to do is go forward and find Gongsun Yue. Defeat him so Zhang Man Chang can
start dropping rocks along the western path. Now keep going forward and swing
down through the area where Gongsun Zan is (ignore him for now) and head
towards Zhang Bao. Kill Zhu Jun along the way. When you get to Zhang Bao,
go onto the altar and stay up there with him for a few minutes. Clear our any
enemy soldiers that come up onto the altar. After a minute or two Cao Cao
will defect to your side.

Now to do the same to Sun Jian's forces. Head down to Zhang Liang and do the
same thing - remain on the altar with him for a few minutes until Sun Jian's
unit is brainwashed. By now Huangfu Song's unit has probably pushed up pretty
far to your castle, and may even be inside. So head north and wipe out his
entire unit to take pressure off your main camp. After he's taken care of go
hunt down and finish off Liu Bei and Gongsun Zan (Gongsun Zan might even be
dead by this point depending on how well your morale has held up.)

Once that's taken care of head down to the enemy camp to kill He Jin. However
once you enter the enemy camp Dong Zhuo will appear by the enemy base on the
western side of the map. In order to finish the battle you must defeat both
He Jin and Dong Zhuo, so go do just that.

ALLIED FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First, go up to the northeastern corner of the map and defeat Hu Zhen and take
down the enemy base there. This will secure the supply line and raise morale.
From here go down and clear out the center area of enemies. Guo Si, Jia Xu,
and Dong Min should be here. Take all of them down as well as the enemy base
right in the middle, and you might as well also secure the two enemy
checkpoints. If Sun Jian's unit hasn't taken down the enemy base in the south,
take it down for them so they can join the rest of your units in advancing to
Si Shui Gate.

Advance towards Si Shui Gate, and kill Li Jue sitting outside of it. Once you
get close to the gate it will open, and Lu Bu will appear. You don't really
have to fight him, you can always go down and around on the southern path to
get into Si Shui Gate that way. But Lu Bu really isn't that hard. He is in
hyper mode, and once his health is about halfway gone he'll get an attack x2
bonus. And finally when he has about 1/4th of his health left he'll go into
musou rage mode, just run around and don't engage him during this time as he
will be rather strong then and can easily kill you. Once his musou rage is
worn off he should be easy to finish off.

Li Ru's unit will show up a little later on in the south, go take him down if
you want to. If not, all that's left to do is to push into Si Shui Gate and
finish off Hua Xiong.

DONG ZHUO'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head straight to the base that protects the supply line (the base in the
northeastern corner) and take it down. While you're up there you might as well
take out Yuan Shu then. Now head back down to the central area and clear it
out of any soldiers, sub-officers, and the enemy base that's there.

Head south towards Sun Jian's unit, taking down the base that's blocking your
path there. Then kill Sun Jian and his sub-officers, and secure the enemy
checkpoint down there. Now go kill Liu Bei and Gongsun Zan, and take the
remaining two enemy bases to decrease their morale even more.

All that remains now is to go and defeat Yuan Shao. Eventually Cao Cao's
army will show up in the southern path leading behind Si Shui Gate, but the
battle can easily be won before this happens, unless you're not on a horse.

ALLIED FORCES

Where you start the battle with effect which path you initially take towards
Hu Lao Gate. Either way, if you want to kill all of the officers here, you'll
need to do a bunch of running around. If you start with Liu Bei's troops take
the northern path up and kill Xu Rong and then take down the two enemy bases
you'll encounter along your way. If you start with Gongsun Zan's troops then
take the middle path and kill Niu Fu, go through the northern base and get to
Hu Lao Gate that way. If you start with Cao Cao's troops, take the southern
path to Hu Lao Gate, disposing of Li Ru along the way. Take not that if you
take the southern path, once you enter the open area past the first enemy
base you'll be ambushed by Li Ru's sub-officer, Li Su.

Whichever way you get to Hu Lao Gate, once you're there you can go down the
other paths to finish off any remaining officers and help lead all of your
allies up to Hu Lao Gate with you. Outside of Hu Lao gate is Li Jue and Guo Si,
so take them down. Catapults will start attacking you from up top on the
castle walls, but there's nothing you can do about this.

Once the gate captain guarding Hu Lao Gate is killed the gate will open and Lu
Bu's unit will appear. Lu Bu is a bit stronger here then he was at Si Shui
Gate, but he's still not that difficult to kill (at least not compared to
prior DW games.) Lu Bu will be in hyper mode, will get an attack x2 and
defense x2 bonus when about half of his health is gone, and will go into musou 
rage once about 1/4th of his health is left. Killing Lu Bu will open up the 
second gate leading you into Hu Lao Gate, but if you don't feel like killing 
him or aren't able to, then you can go around the path to the north and get 
into Hu Lao Gate that way. You'll run into an enemy base and Zhang Liao on this
path, but he's much easier to defeat then Lu Bu.

Once you're inside Hu Lao Gate just kill Dong Zhuo's sub-officers, secure the
two gates, and then kill Dong Zhuo himself to end the battle.

DONG ZHUO'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the start of the battle you'll be outside Hu Lao Gate, being swarmed by
enemies from all sides. There will be no officers here right now, but there are
plenty of sub-officers that must be killed. Kill the following sub-officers:
Cao Hong, Cheng Pu, Jian Yong, Zhu Zhi, and Han Dang. Check your unit info
list if you're unsure of their current locations. By this point Yuan Shao will
declare the gate impregnable and the allied forces will temporarily pull
back. Now finish off clearing out soldiers in front of Hu Lao Gate, and make
sure you secure all the checkpoints in the area to prevent an endless supply
of enemy soldiers.

Which path you take now to advance the enemy is up to you. You can take the
southern path and take out Cao Cao, you can take the northern path and take out
Liu Bei, or you can go through the central path and take out Sun Jian and
Gongsun Zan. Either way, if you want to kill all of these officers you'll have
to do a bunch of running around and some backtracking.

Yan Liang and Wen Chou will show up as reinforcements for Yuan Shao later on
in the southern area. By now most of all the other officers should be defeated,
so add them to that list as well. Now just go march into the enemy camp and
defeat Yuan Shao to win.

YUAN SHAO'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shortly into the start of the battle Lu Bu will charge into an enemy ambush
along the western path. Once he does go kill Guo Daxian and Zhang Yan to rescue
him. Now that you don't have to worry about Lu Bu running away let's go and
clear out the middle path leading up to the main castle. There are three gates
that you must make it through to get to the castle, each which has an officer
guarding it. Kill Huang Long, Gongsun Yue, and Yan Gang to open the three
gates.

Take out any other sub-officers or officers that you run into along the way.
Inside the main castle is Liu Bei and his two sub-officers, Guan Yu and Zhang
Fei. Take them all down as well, and then kill the gate captain who is
guarding the final door leading to Gongsun Zan. Once the inner gate is open
rush in and kill Gongsun Zan to end the battle.

SUN JIAN'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This first thing you'll want to do is immediately rush Huang Zu and kill him.
This will prevent Sun Jian from dying in an ambush. As long as you have a
horse reaching him in time should be no problem. If not, then Sun Jian will
fall into Huang Zu's ambush when he reaches the western gate of the castle.
Not a huge morale crusher, so it's not really that big of a deal.

Once that's been dealt with, go back to the central area and take out the two
enemy bases. Now go take out Cai Mao to open up Xiang Yang Castle's main gate.
Now go inside and kill Kuai Liang, Zhang Hu, and Lu Gong, all of whom are
inside the castles main wall. If Sun Shang Xiang's unit hasn't pushed up along
the eastern path and taken the enemy base by now go do that for them so they
can join the rest of your allies in the castle.

Kill the two gate captains guarding the castles inner gates, one is on the
south side and one is on the west side. Now just go and kill Liu Biao to finish
the battle. Eventually Chen Sheng and Su Fei will show up at the two
checkpoints on the top eastern and western parts of the map. If you want their
drops then go and kill them, if not I'd just head straight for Liu Biao. This
battle is so easy you might even finish it before they show up.

SUN CE'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Take the neutral base on the left, then go take down Chen Heng and Wang Lang
in the fort to the south of it. Next go kill Xue Li and Yan Baihu in the
fort on the right. Eventually Sun Quan will head towards Niu Zhu Fortress,
and once he arrives inside he will be ambushed by Fan Neng. Quickly go defeat
Fan Neng to save Sun Quan. Yu Mi will also head for Sun Quan, so take him down
as well once he comes into the fortress.

Now all that's left is to take the last fortress. Once you enter the fortress
Liu Yong will abandon it and put Taishi Ci in command. So now in order to win
you have to defeat Taishi Ci. Once you approach Taishi Ci you'll see a cutscene
and he'll now be in hyper mode. Once about only 1/4th of his health is left
he'll get an attack x2 bonus, but he still shouldn't be too hard to take down.
Finish him off to win.

ALLIED FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First go take out Cheng Pu, who is in the lower left hand corner of the map.
Next head north and take out Han Dang and Jiang Qin. Now go and take down the
enemy base in the middle connecting area. Clear out the group of enemy soldiers
that are advancing towards the main fort through the central area.

By this time Zhang Ying should have lured Sun Quan into the eastern fort and
trapped him there. Zhou Tai will go try to help out Sun Quan, so kill him
before he can reach him. Then take down Sun Quan while you're over there too.

Sun Ce should show up around now. But first, go kill Dong Xi and Zhou Yu. Then
once they're taken care of finish off the level by defeating Sun Ce. Pretty
easy.

This map is just a very small castle, with two main parts separated by a wall
that runs down most of the middle. When you start the battle there won't be
any officers to defeat, and Cao Cao will be on the other side of the castle.
Ignore the enemy soldiers and go meet up with Cao Cao. Once you do you'll get
a battle message that says to head for the escape route with Cao Cao. Clear out
all enemy soldiers in the area.

Once Cao Cao advances south a little bit Hu Che Er will appear. Just kill him
and all of the soldiers that he brings with him. At this point enemy soldiers
will keep coming into the castle through three different entry ways, and there
are no gate captains to kill so the supply is endless. As Cao Cao approaches
the escape point Jia Xu appears to stop him. Cut him down so Cao Cao can go
through the escape point.

Once Cao Cao is through the escape point you'll see a message saying to hold
off the enemy task forces until Cao Cao has escaped. What you're looking for
is a regular enemy soldier who has the words "Task Leader" above his head.
Two of them will appear at a time, one will always show up in the entry point
at the very north section of the eastern half of the castle, and the other one
will either show up in the southern entry point on the eastern half or the
southern entry point on the western half. Either way, just wait around the
entry point on the western half, this way you'll be able to see the task
leaders coming no matter which one they come from. They'll make their way right
to the escape point, ignoring you, so you need to take them out quick. It's
actually not that hard to end up letting one slip through, especially if you're
playing on a harder difficulty setting.

If you let too many through, they will capture Cao Cao and you will lose. If
you let at least one through, Zhang Xiu's unit will appear. Defeating him does
not end the battle, however; Cao Cao must still have time to escape. After
a dozen or so waves of enemy task forces you'll get a message saying that Cao
Cao has successfully escaped and the battle will be won.

The main objective here is to break the flood gate, flooding Xia Pi Castle. To
do this all you have to do is defeat Gao Shun, who is reinforcing the flood
gate. At the start of the battle you'll see a soldier saying that Yuan Shu's
army is on its way to the southern gates. Yuan Shu's army will show up as
reinforcements only if you don't break the flood gate. But don't rush to do
this, you have plenty of time. It takes about 12 minutes for Gao Shun to fully
reinforce the flood gates, so you don't need to go rushing straight to him.

If you start at the southern area by Liu Bei, head forward and capture the two
enemy bases and secure the three checkpoints. Yin Li is also down there, just
waiting to be slain. Once that's taken care of head back up north by Cao Hong
and Xiahou Dun and take down that enemy base and the checkpoint. Unless you
want an extra attack +2 stat boost, don't even bother crossing that bridge
and defeating Song Xian and all those enemies on the west side of Xia Pi
Castle. You'll see why in a minute. Instead, just head north up to Xiahou Yuan
and help him out by killing Zhang Ba.

Now head east and take out Cao Xing, Zhang Liao, the enemy base and the two
checkpoints. If you're nearing the 10 minute mark just head for Gao Shun first,
but unless you're doing this on foot that shouldn't be an issue. Once all that
is done, however, there isn't much left to do except take out Gao Shun. You
won't be able to gain access to Xia Pi Castle if the flood gates are being
reinforced. So kill Gao Shun and flood the castle. This will cause soldiers
from Lu Bu's army to open the north gate. Time to storm the castle.

When the castle floods, any units in the western portion of the castle will
be killed. This includes allied units. That's why I told you not to even
bother going for Song Xian and that enemy base - they just get wiped out
anyway. Hou Cheng should also be killed by the floods. Shortly after, Wei Xu
will surrender to your forces. So that just leaves Lu Bu and his two sub-
officers to kill. Lu Bu isn't too tough, but he is in hyper mode. Also, he will
go into musou rage after about half of his health is gone. Once he has about
1/4th of his health left he'll attempt to flee. Don't let him escape, just
cut him down.

LU BU'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you start the battle the castle will be flooded, how lame is that? Oh
well, head south and kill Zhang Fei for starters. Now continue to the west and
take the southern bridge to meet up with Guan Yu. Kill him, and then secure
the checkpoint that he was near. Around this time Hou Cheng will start crying
out for someone to come rescue him. Before you do that, quick take the enemy
base in front of your position.

Now go find Xiahou Yuan, who will be charging Hou Cheng's unit, and kill him
to rescue Hou Cheng. Now the only other people left to kill are Liu Bei and
Xiahou Dun.

Once all of those enemy officers are dead, Cao Cao and Cao Hong will arrive.
Cao Cao will show up in the southwestern corner of the map and Cao Hong will
show up in the northeastern corner. If you want some additional points then
go and defeat Cao Hong, but since you're most likely already right by Cao Cao's
location you could just go over to him and finish the battle right away.

Focus on taking out the three enemy bases on your side of the river first.
Guan Yu will kill Yan Liang's unit on the right side of the map, so don't worry
about that. After seeing Liu Bei Guan Yu will withdraw from the battle, but
it's no big loss, at least he actually killed someone and was useful. Start
pushing across the river into the enemies territory. Take down the enemy base
on the front line on the left side of the map, and then take out Zhen Ji,
who is near that base, as well.

Wen Chou, Yuan Xi, and Yuan Shang will start advancing on your lines. Go kill
them all to eliminate their threat. After a little bit Yuan Shao will open up
Wu Chao to deliver supplies to the front line. Now is your time to strike.
Rush into Wu Chao and slay Chunyu Qiong to set fire to the supplies. This will
turn the tide of battle in your face, and Cao Cao will order his army to start
marching. Now all that there is left to do is to kill Zhang He, Liu Bei, Yuan
Tan, and finally Yuan Shao.

YUAN SHAO'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This first thing I suggest you do is head straight for Guan Yu right away and
kill him. If you allow him to run around and do his thing he'll end up killing
Yan Liang and Wen Chou. Now go over to the right and kill Liu Yan and Cao Hong
to take Bai Ma Castle. Now when you go approach the castle Siege towers will
appear. Go take the remaining four enemy bases so your units can start
advancing towards the castle.

Siege towers will probably start getting destroyed, but don't worry about it.
Just kill the remaining officers hanging around outside of the castle - Xiahou
Dun, Cao Pi, Li Dian, and Yue Jin. After all this, soldiers from inside the
castle will open the east and west gates. Now storm inside and kill Cao Cao
to finish the battle.

This battle can be won very quickly, considering that Guan Yu starts out pretty
close to you. As long as you're on a horse you'll be able to reach him before
he starts advancing through the second gate. You'll run into Liao Hua and Zhou
Cang before Guan Yu, it's up to you if you want to defeat them or not. Guan Yu
will be waiting by the second gate along with the carriage. Just take Guan Yu
down right away, he'll be in hyper mode but he isn't too tough. He'll get an
attack x2 bonus once his health is knocked down far enough.

One last tip: if you're not going to go straight for Guan Yu and you wish to
take out all of the other officers first, do NOT destroy the carriage. Doing so
will send ALL of the other officers into hyper mode, and they'll be just that
much more annoying to dispose of.

GUAN YU'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This map is very straightforward, all you really have to do is just go through
a series of gates, each of which is guarded by an enemy officer. To open the
gate, just defeat the officer. There is just one thing you must be aware of:
the carriage. Make sure you protect it, and if you're going off ahead and
leaving Guan Yu and the carriage behind, make sure you kill ALL enemies on your
way, that way they don't damage the carriage while you're 50 miles ahead of it.
It's actually not that hard to lose this level via the carriage being
destroyed, especially on harder difficulties as it doesn't take many hits to
take it down. And do NOT count on Guan Yu to protect the carriage (if you're
not playing as him, obviously) because he won't.

Ok first go kill Zhang Liao. After you knock down about 1/4th of his health
he'll start to run away, kill him before he can get through the southern gate
for a nice +4 attack boost. Now go kill Kong Xiu to open up the first gate.
Go kill the first guard captain, he'll drop a musou rage token. Now go take
down Han Fu to open the second gate.

Take down the next guard captain, and go kill Bian Xi to open the third gate.
Xu Huang will be behind this gate, so use your musou rage token and take him
out. The reason I'm telling you to use the token now is because you see that
next guard captain just a few feet ahead? Killing him will drop you another
musou rage token. Pick it up and go kill Wang Zhi to open the fourth gate.

Once the fourth gate is open Xiahou Dun's unit will appear all the way back at
the starting point, just ignore him for now and continue forth. Xu Zhu will be
behind the fourth gate, use your musou rage token and quickly kill him. Now
go secure the last checkpoint and go kill Qin Qi who is by the last gate. But
what is this, killing him doesn't open the last gate? Xiahou Dun yells at you
to go face him, so in order to open this gate that's just what you'll have to
do. But before you do, smash open the crates to the left of the last gate,
right by the archer tower. In here is another musou rage token, let's use this
one for Xiahou Dun - you'll need it.

Backtrack and meet up with Xiahou Dun. He will be in hyper mode, and once
he's at about 50% health he'll go into musou rage. Just dodge him while he's
in musou rage mode, then once he's returned to normal go back to pounding on
him. If you get low on health there's plenty of urns scattered about the map,
usually by the gates. But he isn't too difficult, despite this being a four
star stage. Kill him to open the fifth and final gate, and let the carriage
reach the escape point to win.

SUN CE'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a weird one. You're inside a small castle with the odd Yu Ji, who will
summon a bunch of phantoms of himself as well as an endless supply of soldiers.
First kill the phantom Yu Ji that's right behind you when you start the battle.
After he's dead three more phantoms will appear. Go kill one of them, I usually
just rush the guy to the left and kill him. After he's dead another Yu Ji will
appear to the south, this time with a phantom army surrounding him. Obviously
you can't kill the phantoms, so just gun for Yu Ji. Once you start hitting him
he'll disappear and declare that "the real me is over here". So go hit the
new Yu Ji only to have the same thing happen again. Go try to kill him one last
time. Yet again another phantom Yu Ji will appear, go kill him to get rid of
the phantom army.

Now Yu Ji will turn Sun Ce's army against him, and from now on you'll be
facing an endless horde of Wu soldiers. Kill 50 soldiers for a new batch of
phantom Yu Ji's to appear. Kill all three of them. Now Yu Ji will use his
"secret weapon" - which is apparently summoning a fake Sun Jian and Da Qiao to
attack you. Dispatch of these two illusions and now 8 (!) phantom Yu Ji's will
appear. As you kill these phantoms Yu Ji will make any remaining ones stronger.
Eventually, after you've killed enough of the phantoms the real Yu Ji will
appear at the southern area of the map. Any remaining phantoms still alive will
now be put into hyper mode. Ignore the remaining phantoms and head straight
for the real Yu Ji to put an end to this annoying battle.

SUN QUAN'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Start advancing up either the left or right side, whichever side you start on.
Your first objective here is to kill Cai Mao and Wen Pin before the head off
on the boats. Since it takes a good deal of time for them to do this, this
isn't a very hard task. When Ling Cao steps foot on the small island area on
the left side of the map he will be ambushed by Gan Ning's unit and instantly
killed. There is nothing you can do to prevent this. Gan Ning will be in
hyper mode and will advance on Ling Tong; kill him before he can do any more
damage to your forces. Gan Ning will get an attack x2 and a speed x2 bonus
when he gets low on health, and when he's really low he'll go into musou rage.
You should have Ling Tong's unit there to help you out though, so at least
you'll have some help.

Once that's taken care of go kill Wen Pin and Cai Mao. Take the two enemy
bases in the central area as well. Now go help your forces push up on whatever
side you didn't start out on. Advance on the castle on the right side of the
map, killing Lu Gong and Li Yan. Su Fei will move up to guard the short cut
(the right side) so kill him along the way. Now kill Kuai Liang and the gate
captain on the right side of the castle to gain entrance. Once you're inside
just kill Huang Zu to win.

HUANG ZU'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First clear out the units pushing your main camp. This includes Cheng Pu, Dong
Xi and Taishi Ci. I suggest going for Cheng Pu first. Once he's dealt with
take down the enemy base that he starts near. By this time Taishi Ci should
have pushed up to you, so go kill him. Now go down to the middle area and clear
it out of all enemies so Cai Mao can launch the boats. Kill Ling Cao, and take
the enemy base.

Now it's time to clear out the enemies on the left side. First take out Dong
Xi and the enemy base that's in front of him. Don't worry about the wimpy
soldiers that have pushed up beyond the base, your allies will take care of
them so long as Dong Xi is dead. Now head south and kill Ling Tong. Since his
poor daddy is dead he'll be in hyper mode, so it will take a little extra work
to kill him. When about 1/4th of his health is gone he'll get a defense x2
bonus, which makes killing him even more annoying. And then once he has about
1/4th of his health left he'll substitute the defense x2 with an attack x2.

Once he's dead continue south and kill Zhou Tai, then head into the main camp
and take down Sun Quan to win the battle. If you want you can skip over Quan
for now and go kill Han Dang and Zhou Yu for some extra stat boosting items.
If not then just head straight for Sun Quan.

CAO CAO'S FORCES

First go kill Zhao Yun before he can meet up with Liu Bei, he'll be at your
base and will be completely separated from his allies. He is in hyper mode, but
is completely by himself, so he shouldn't be too hard to kill. Now go head over
to Zhang Fei and kill him (he'll probably have given up his post at the bridge
by now.) You'll fall into Zhuge Liang's ambush, but that's no big deal. Kill
Zhang Fei and the two sub generals, Sun Qian and Mi Fang, in the area. Now go
over and defeat Liao Hua.

Make your way south and take out the enemy base as you pass through it. In
this center area of the map is where Liu Bei and Zhuge Liang are probably
currently waiting. Zhou Cang will probably be pushed up a little further by
the one enemy base straight ahead of you. Liu Bei will wait in this area until
Guan Yu arrives with reinforcements at the docks. It's up to you if you want
to wait to defeat Liu Bei or take him out now. If you continue to wait to
defeat him even after Guan Yu appears, eventually Liu Qi will appear with the
escape point and Liu Bei will start heading to it. That's when you have to
start moving quick to kill Liu Bei before he reaches the escape point. When you
decide to kill him is up to you, just don't wait too long.

LIU BEI'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unless you're playing as Zhao Yun and you've spawned all the way back in the
enemies main camp, I suggest you start taking some of those neutral bases.
Do not worry about the north-most neutral base, as Zhuge Liang's unit will
occupy that base. Go take the southern base right below that one, and the next
two bases as the path splits into two. The enemy will take the other two
western bases, and don't worry about the two bases along the southern trail
for now.

Once this is done head over to Cao Hong and defeat him, then head north from
there and take that enemy base. Now continue heading north to the area where
Zhuge Liang's task unit is preparing the fire attack. Li Dian will be in
pursuit of them, so defeat him before he can kill them. Hang around this area
and protect the task leaders. Might as well secure the enemy checkpoint while
you're here. Once the area is cleared and the task leaders look safe, you can
head over to the right to the enemy base and take that down awhile. Yu Jin
will probably have pushed down into this area by now, so kill him as well.

After a little while Zhuge Liang's fire attack will be successful. By this time
Xiahou Dun should have pushed up to the northeastern corner of the map, so
head up there and kill him. If you've been following me so far then all of the
enemy officers will be dead now, and Xu Huang and Cao Zhang will show up as
reinforcements. Cao Zhang will be near where Xiahou Dun was and will come right
to you if you just stay where you are, so just wait there for him and once he
comes take him out. I suggest leaving Xu Huang alive for now, and head down
to the south and take the last two neutral bases. The reason I say to leave
Xu Huang alive is because if you kill him now then Jia Xu will arrive at the
south and will take the two neutral bases before you can.

Guan Yu should arrive as reinforcements shortly, if he hasn't by now. Now Liu
Bei will start moving and once he arrives at the docks near where Guan Yu is
he will wait for the peasants to flee. With the two southern neutral bases now
yours you can go and kill Xu Huang while you wait. This will cause Jia Xu to
arrive at the south, so go down and kill him now. Might as well wipe the whole
area down there clear of enemies to provide a nice and easy path for Liu Bei.

After all of the peasants have fled Liu Qi will appear with the escape point.
Now Liu Bei will start heading for the escape point. Shortly after this Cao
Cao's main force will arrive in the north. If you want you can go kill him, or
you can just wait for Liu Bei to reach the escape point and win that way.
Depending on where you are on the map and how strong your character is, he
might just end up escaping before you can kill Cao Cao anyway.

CAO CAO'S FORCES

The main thing you have to do here is prevent the fire attack. First wait for
Pang Tong to defect to the enemy forces, then go kill him. He'll defect after
just a few seconds into the battle. Next go over to Zhuge Liang and kill him;
might as well kill Pan Zhang while you're over there too. Killing Zhuge Liang
will prevent the wind from being summoned. Now head along the southern chain
of ships to where Zhou Yu is and kill him. 

Go a few ships forward to the large ship where Zhou Tai is and Huang Gai will
appear. Now all you have to do to prevent the fire attack is kill Huang Gai.
This is easier said than done, however, since Huang Gai is in hyper mode, will
be surrounded by a large group of soldiers, and Zhou Tai will most likely come
join in on the fun. Zhou Tai won't be much trouble so quickly dispose of him,
and focus the rest of your attacks on Huang Gai. Probably the most annoying
thing is that Huang Gai will keep trying to just ignore you can head for his
destination, so make sure you have a horse so you can quickly track him down
if he gets out of your range. Once Huang Gai is dead the fire attack will
have been prevented.

Shortly after Huang Gai's defeat Zhuge Jin and Sun Quan will appear. Zhuge Jin
will be over on the area of land to the left and Sun Quan will appear at the
same spot Huang Gai did. If you want you can go around and finish off all
remaining officers before taking down Sun Quan, because once you do the battle
will be over.

ALLIED FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your main goal here is to make sure the fire attack is successful. Clear out
the area where you start of enemies, and after a few minutes Pang Tong will
suggest knocking down the two bridges that join Cao Cao's main fleet with your
fleet. To do this you have to go defeat Wang Lang and Cai Mao, who happen to
each be on one of the two bridges. Cai Mao will be on the western bridge and
Wang Lang will be on the eastern bridge. Go defeat both of them to knock down
the two bridges.

After that's been done head over to the strip of land on the west and kill
Zhang Liao's two sub-officers Wen Pin and Xun You. Clear out the rest of that
area to make sure Zhuge Liang is kept safe while he summons the wind. By this
time Huang Gai will be moving towards the central ship, go find him and escort
him there - make sure he gets there alive! Once he gets there keep protecting
him as he prepares the fire ship.

After a little bit of waiting Huang Gai will embark and set fire to the enemy
fleet and Zhuge Liang will summon the wind. With Cao Cao's fleet in flames
the battle is pretty much yours. Just go kill off any remaining officers and
then kill Cao Cao to end the battle.

CAO CAO'S FORCES

You have to lead Cao Cao to the escape point, all the while defeating enemies
that show up along the way. Head forward from the start and Cheng Pu will show
up. Kill Cheng Pu, and his sub-officer Dong Xi, so Cao Cao can resume
marching. After this Han Dang will show up on the ship behind you, just ignore
him since he's not in Cao Cao's way, plus Xiahou Yuan will appear to fight him.
The next ambush will be Zhu Zhi's unit, just a little bit ahead. Kill Zhu Zhi
and Chen Wu and continue forward.

Up around the next turn is Zhao Yun. Kill him once he appears so Cao Cao can
continue his march. Cao Cao will continue along the southern path and run into
Zhang Fei. Take him out once he appears. Guan Ping will show up in the next
area, kill him once he does. Getting the idea of how to do this by now? Shortly
after Guan Ping is defeated Sun Quan's unit will appear all the way down at the
southern part of the map. Don't bother going down to kill him unless you want
what he drops, just continue on head.

Guan Yu will show up next, but he will withdraw and let Cao Cao pass. After
that Liu Bei will show up right in front of the escape point, go kill Liu Bei
to secure the passage for Cao Cao. Let him run through the escape point and you
will have won the battle.

ALLIED FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This battle can actually be won very quickly if you have a horse. Right when
the battle starts just head straight for Cao Cao, ignore everyone else. You
should catch up with him by the time he's about to cross the bridge - instead
of fighting him now cross the bridge first. Once he's crossed it as well it
will get knocked down (this is why I suggested crossing the bridge first, if
Cao Cao gets away from you and crosses the bridge before you do then it will
get knocked down and separate you.) Now just kill Cao Cao. The annoying thing
about this is Cao Cao won't actually attack you, he'll just keep trying to run
away. And if you get hit by just one enemy while you're trying to attack him,
he'll probably be able to make a break for it. Just get back on your hose and
ride back up to him if this happens.

If you don't have a horse or you just don't want to do it that way you'll have
to make your way around the map killing enemy officers who are trying to block
your path. Technically you don't have to kill them, you can just head straight
for Cao Cao, but if you're going to do that anyway you might as well just
refer to what I said in the above paragraph. Just make sure Cao Cao is dead
before he reaches the escape point. He'll periodically stop to wait for
reinforcements, the longest time being when he's waiting near the northern
part of the map for Xun Yu to arrive. It takes a really long time for Xun Yu
to arrive, so I wouldn't worry too much about Cao Cao escaping. Unless the
character you're playing as is very underpowered.

First push forward, take the enemy base, defeat Liang Xing, and then take the
next enemy base as well. Cao Cao and Xu Zhu will cross the river and start
heading into the northern area. Shortly after that Xu Huang should arrive as
reinforcements. Head back to the river and attack Li Kan, who should be pushed
up to your units.

Ma Chao will start rushing Cao Cao through the river, so stand your ground and
get ready to kill him. Ma Chao is in hyper mode, and once a bit of his health
is knocked down he'll get an attack x2. By this time Han Sui will push up to
the north of Tong Gate, and he'll tell you to isolate Han Sui by killing all
of those around him. So go around and through Tong Gate (ignore Pang De and
others for now) and go kill Hou Xuan and Cheng Yin. The allied forces will
become suspicious of Han Sui and will withdraw back into Tong Gate.

Once Zhang Lu arrives behind you, go kill him. Now I don't know about anybody
else, but I've never gotten Han Sui to defect. I've just sat around and
eventually he'll just die, but he'll never defect. If there is some extra
step I'm missing here, someone let me know... but it seems like all you're
suppose to do is isolate Han Sui and then let him defect. But like I said, I've
never had it happen. So honestly you can just kill Han Sui if you want, after
killing the other two up north. Save yourself the time.

Once all that is taken care of go kill Pang De to win. He's in hyper mode, and
after taking a bit of damage will regenerate his health. Once half of his
health is gone he'll get a defense x2 bonus, and once he has about 25% health
left he'll go into musou rage mode. Finish him off after that.

ALLIED FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head forward and kill Cao Hong and take down the enemy base. Now turn around
and go kill Zhu Ling, who is advancing on your from the central river. When
Cao Cao starts heading to the north push forward and kill Xiahou Yuan and take
the other enemy base.

Now start advancing north. Xu Zhu will be in the river area, go kill him. Cao
Cao's forces will capture the three neutral bases, and Xu Huang will arrive as
reinforcements in the north. Don't worry about either of these things though,
it's no big deal. Just go kill Zhang He and Xu Huang. Then push into the
northern area of Tong Gate.

After Cao Cao meets with Han Sui he will defect once you approach him. Cheng
Yin and Cheng Yi will then withdraw once he defects. Really the only way to
prevent this is to kill Cao Cao before they meet. After a little bit Cao Ren's
unit will arrive as reinforcements up in the north. Kill him and Cao Cao to
finish the stage.

LIU BEI'S FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On this map you can either start in the north or the south. If you start in the
north, push forward a bit into the forest and Liu Han, Leng Bao, and Zhang Yi
will appear. Liu Han and Leng Bao will be near the southern checkpoint, and
Zhang Yi will be near the edge of the forest to the left. Kill all three and
secure the lower checkpoint, then go secure the two northern checkpoints. The
next thing you should do is head straight for Zhang Ren, and make sure you get
there before Pang Tong does. If Pang Tong advances on Zhang Ren first he'll be
killed in an ambush.

If you start in the south you'll want to push forward and kill Lei Tong to open
the first gate. Once inside the castle, kill Fei Guan, Deng Xian and Liu Xun
to take it. Don't go through the north gate just yet, go through the western
gate and secure the enemy base and kill Li Yan. Push inside the castle. In
order to open the castles main gate you have to surround it. Go push forward
and kill Meng Da and the gate captain to open the eastern gate. Then go north
and kill the gate captain to open the northern gate.

If you haven't yet, go outside and finish off Wu Lan and Yan Yan and secure
the enemy checkpoint. Once the castle is surrounded Liu Zhang will open up the
inner gate. Now rush inside the kill him to end the battle.

WEI FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Take one of the neutral bases, whichever one is closest to you when you start.
Once that's done head back to the middle and clear it out - take down the
enemy base and secure the two lower checkpoints. Then go kill Pan Zhang and
push into the next smaller area, taking the enemy base and the one checkpoint.
Go north here and kill Zhu Huan, then use the bridge up north connecting this
area to the northern area and cross it.

Taishi Ci's unit should be up here by the neutral base that they probably
captured. Go kill Taishi Ci and take down the two enemy bases in this area. By
this time Zhu Zhi will have pushed up into the smaller area of land in the
middle, so go back and cross the northern bridge again back down to where you
just were and go kill him.

Zhang Liao should have isolated Sun Quan by now, and will be fighting on his
own. He should be fine for now, but your southern units are probably struggling
against Lu Meng's unit. Go down south and help them out, then push forwards
from there into the enemy main camp. Go help out Zhang Liao when you arrive
there - kill Zhuge Jin, Sun Shao and Jiang Qin. Lu Meng will be hiding right
next to Sun Quan.

Cao Cao's main forces will appear around now, and now Cao Cao will take over
as the commander so you no longer have to worry about Zhang Liao dying. Shortly
after Cao Cao shows up, Gan Ning will show up to the very north, near Cao Cao.
You can either quickly go kill Sun Quan and end the battle, or if you think
that is going to take you a while, I suggest go killing Gan Ning first. Gan
Ning will have high morale and will head straight for Cao Cao, so don't let
him kill him.

Gan Ning is in hyper mode and he gets an attack x2 bonus, and will also go into
musou rage when low on health, so he takes a bit to kill. But once he's dead
head all the way back down to the enemy camp and kill Lu Meng and Sun Quan to
end the battle.

WU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Start by pushing into the middle area and taking the two enemy bases, the two
checkpoints, and Pang De as well as his two sub-officers. Shortly into the
battle Cao Zhang's unit will arrive as reinforcements. He will push into the
middle area with you, so once he does kill him. Push across the bridge and
head south, taking down the first enemy base and as well Yue Jin.

Push towards the southern enemy base and Xu Huang will arrive in that area as
reinforcements. Kill him once he does. By now Zhang Liao will have shown up to
ambush Sun Quan. Quickly head back to the middle area to where Zhang Liao is
and kill him. Yu Jin should be there as well, kill him first. Zhang Liao will
of course be in hyper mode, making it a little tougher to kill him. He will
get an attack x2 bonus once enough of his health is gone.

Once that threat is taken care of use the bridge to the north to advance on Li
Dian. Take the two enemy bases up in the northern corner first, then head west
and kill Li Dian and take the other enemy base and checkpoint. Zhang Liao will
reappear up here in the northern central checkpoint. Kill him again once he
does. Annoyingly enough, he'll be in hyper mode still and he'll have an attack
x2 bonus right from the start.

Shortly after Zhang Liao shows up Cao Hong and Xiahou Dun will show up in the
same area as reinforcements as well. Kill them both before they start to
advance on your main camp.

Zhang Liao will show up a third time down at the bottom left corner of the map.
And - you guessed it - he's in hyper mode with an attack x2 bonus. Go kill
him again, only to have to "temporarily withdraw" yet again. When will he just
give him? Gan Ning will show up as reinforcements for Wu shortly after. Shortly
after Zhang Liao will show up one final time at the very top right corner of
the enemy castle. Go kill him to put an end to this nonsense. Then once that's
taken care of go kill Cao Cao to finish the battle.

WU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Start off by clearing out the middle area where you start. Take down the enemy
base and close off the checkpoint. Push downward a little bit to find Dong Tu
Na and Ahui Nan; kill them both. Next go kill Jinhuan Sanjie and Zhu Rong, but
be careful because Zhu Rong is on an elephant. Take both enemy bases before
advancing into the enemy main camp.

Once you advance into the enemy main camp Meng Huo's unit will disappear and
will reappear in the upper right hand corner of the map, above the river. Two
Nanman beast units (King Mulu and Mang Yachang) will also show up to the right
and left sides of Sun Quan. Mang Yachang's unit will occupy the neutral base
if you have not previously done so. Also, a Nanman task force will appear by
the northern bridge and will attempt to destroy it. Quickly head back up to the
bridge and kill the task leader. Now go kill King Mulu and Mang Yachang to
save Sun Quan. Then kill King Duosi and Meng Huo to finish the battle. Yang
Feng and Wu Tugu will show up as Nanman reinforcements later on in the battle,
but this is such an easy battle that you should be able to win long before they
show up.

NANMAN FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First get rid of the small group of enemies along the southern path leading up
to your main camp. Zhu Huan is there, so kill him once you find him. Next take
the enemy base, then push up into the middle area, ignore the left side of the
map for now. As you push into the middle area you'll find Xu Sheng in the
small little area to the right, so take him down first.

Once you've push into the central area take out Zhou Tai, Zhu Ran, the enemy
base, the enemy checkpoint, and then push towards the bridge and take out Lu
Xun. You probably heard Meng Huo say something earlier about taking down the
bridge, well to do that all you need to do is simply approach the bridge and
it will be destroyed. This will probably happen as you go to fight Lu Xun since
he's near the bridge.

Now you can either take the paths to the east or the west into the enemy main
camp. Sun Shang Xiang's unit is on the western path, and you'll want to kill
her I'm sure. However the annoying thing about going that way is sometimes the
gate to the base will be closed because the enemy will be attacking it. If the
gate captain is killed and the enemy is in the base you can simply ride your
horse on through, but if not you'll have to get off your horse and continue up
the path on foot. Of course once you close the enemy checkpoint and clear the
area of enemies the gate will open again, but it's still annoying to have to
do all of that on foot. Either way, go kill Sun Shang Xiang and Lu Meng. Now
all that's left is Sun Quan. Gan Ning and Jiang Qin will eventually show up as
reinforcements, but that takes a LONG time to happen, and the battle will
probably be won before that happens.

Hold out in the middle area there and just wait for the Shu army to start
advancing on you. In the meantime just kill the hordes of mindless soldiers.
This will also help to lower the morale of several of the enemy officers. Wu
Lan will probably be the first officer you'll encounter, so hack him down once
you do. It's also not a bad idea to go secure the enemy checkpoint to the
north while you're waiting for the rest of the Shu army to advance.

Li Yan will probably be the next officer to push you, kill him once he does.
Now I suggest you go south a bit and kill Liu Feng and secure the one enemy
checkpoint down there. If Shu has stopped advancing from the mountain, then
you can push up it and kill Huang Zhong and Guan Ping, who are probably the
only two remaining officers on it. Huang Zhong is very annoying to kill. For
one he's in hyper mode, and once enough of his health is knocked down he'll
regain some of it and get a defense x2 bonus. Then, once his health is about
halfway gone, he'll go into musou rage mode.

Once Huang Zhong and Guan Ping are dead secure the two enemy checkpoints on
the mountain and take the enemy base to finally take the mountain itself. Cao
Cao's unit should be arriving right around now, and when he does the losing
conditions of the battle change: you'll lose if Cao Cao is defeated, obviously.

Zhao Yun is probably pushing up the mountain right about now, so track him
down and kill him. All that's left then is Wei Yan to the north and Liu Bei
in the lower left hand corner of the map. Kill Liu Bei to end the stage.

SHU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No matter where you start on the battlefield, the first thing you'll want to
do is take the mountain. So advance up the mountain, take the two enemy
checkpoints, the enemy base, and kill Xiahou De. Once the mountain is taken
Huang Zhong will charge the enemy. Let's go follow him to make sure he stays
alive. He'll charge down into the valley where Xiahou Yuan is. There will be
a lot of archers' down here, so sweep around the area taking them all out
first. Otherwise they'll become quite annoying.

The first officer you'll run into down here will probably be Xiahou Yuan, and
he's the first one you'll want to kill. He's pretty much the Wei equivalent of
Huang Zhong on this map. He's in hyper mode, and once a bit of his health is
knocked down he'll regain most of it and go into defense x2. If you don't have
a musou rage token by now there is always an enemy around here who drops one,
I believe it's one of the soldiers with Xiahou Yuan. So focus on killing a
bunch of soldiers as well as keeping Xiahou Yuan at bay until you kill the
one who drops the token, as you'll probably need it against Xiahou Yuan. Once
his health is about halfway gone Xiahou Yuan will go into musou rage mode.
Once his musou rage is gone, bust out some musou rage of your own and take him
down.

Once Xiahou Yuan is dead finish cleaning up the rest of the officers, they're
all around your general vicinity anyway. Zhang He and Yue Jin should be
directly to the south of you, and Li Dian is by himself up north. Guo Huai
and Cao Zhen are both up in the enemy main camp. After about five minutes or
so Cao Cao will show up. Now all you have to do to end the battle is kill him,
so go do that once you're ready.

WEI FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the start of the battle you'll be pretty much surrounded at Fan Castle,
vastly outnumbered by the Shu forces. The first thing you should do is head
on over to the floodgates and kill Guan Ping to prevent the water attack. Next
kill Meng Da, who should have pushed to your location by now. After that's
done I suggest just going around beating on the enemy. Kill officers, take
bases, and secure checkpoints. Focus on the enemy units near Fan Castle first,
then I suggest going down to the southern area and starting to clear out that
area next.

Xu Huang should show up as reinforcements in the south later on. A little after
that Wu will show up with some reinforcements in the south as well. The battle
is pretty much yours at this point, as most of your army has probably pushed
forward and there won't be much left of the Shu forces. Advance towards Guan
Yu's camp. Zhang Fei should show up soon in the enemy main camp, and Guan Yu
will order a counter attack. But at this point it'll be useless, just defeat
Zhang Fei and then kill Guan Yu to finish the battle. Killing them both will
probably be the hardest thing about the battle, since they're both in hyper
mode (Guan Yu will get an attack x2 bonus and will also go into musou rage.)

WU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you start the battle Fan Castle will already have been flooded, but it's
no big deal. Get rid of the units near the castle first, namely Guan Xing and
Liao Hua, as well as the enemy checkpoints and bases. After a little bit Lu
Xun will say that morale is low between Mi Fang and Fu Shi Ren, and Lu Meng
will order you to make the defect. So take the southern path down to Fu Shi Ren
and hit him just ONCE - this will cause him to defect. Now go do the same to
Mi Fang.

Fu Shi Ren will go north and attack Guan Ping, go help him out and Kill Guan
Ping before he kills Fu Shi Ren. Now cross through the center of the map and
kill any remaining forces outside of Fan Castle. Xu Huang will arrive as
reinforcements, but by this point the battle is pretty much over. Clear out
the remaining Shu forces in the north and kill Guan Yu to end the battle.

SHU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First go take down the enemy base in the center of the map and in the southern
area of the map. After that head up north to where Guan Ping is to defend
the floodgate. Niu Jin will be pushed up there by now with a bunch of enemy
soldiers, slay all of them. Once they're all taken care of head north and you
should run into Yue Jin and a bunch of soldiers rushing you. Kill all of them
as well.

After that keep going forward and take the northern enemy base. Then go kill
Yu Jin who is probably outside of it by now. The river should overflow shortly,
and one it does you'll get a good morale boost, and almost all of the enemy
soldiers in Fan Castle will be dead. Now go around killing any remaining units
and closing off some of the enemy checkpoints. Eventually Xu Huang will arrive
as reinforcements for Wei, so kill him when he does.

The only annoying thing about flooding Fan Castle is that the only way to
get into Fan Castle and kill Cao Ren is to kill Pang De. This reason that this
is annoying is because Pang De is, of course, in hyper mode. Never the less,
once he's dead a path will magically appear leading up to Fan Castle.

If you haven't killed Cao Ren by now and ended the battle yet, Wu will arrive
with Lu Meng and Xu Sheng as reinforcements in the south. Xu Sheng's forces
will advance to the west towards the main camp, and once they run into Mi Fang
and Fu Shi Ren they will both defect. This will make Guan Yu enraged, and he
will run down to kill them. He will be ambushed on his way there and will die,
and Zhang Fei (who will have recently shown up as reinforcements) be named
Commander. Once Cao Ren is dead the battle is still not over yet; you must kill
Lu Meng as well to end the battle. So quickly go do that before Zhang Fei dies,
since he's surrounded by troops to the south (but it's still unlikely that this
will happen.)

WU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is no bridge yet in the middle, so you have to enter the main Shu camp
through either the northern or the eastern path. Advance along whichever one
you start closest to. If you go the northern route take down Sha Moke, the
enemy base, and the enemy checkpoint, then advance into the center. If you
take the eastern path then take the enemy base and the checkpoint, then
advance to the center towards Ma Chao.

Once you're in the central area start killing officers, soldiers, taking bases
and securing checkpoints. Just wait for the preparations for the fire attack
to be complete. Once it's ready the bridge will lower, connecting the Shu and
Wu camps. Zhu Ran will run across, escort him to his destination and make sure
no one tries to mess with him. Once he gets to that little fort-like thing on
the right hand side of the map the fire attack will go off as planned. Kill
any remaining officers in the area.

Liu Bei will retreat down to the main camp in the south through his little
maze there. You could either go through the central maze there or you could
just go through the longer paths on the left and right that also lead to the
main camp. The maze isn't really that much of a shortcut because it's rather
annoying; your minimap disappears once you go inside in (it will reappear once
you're out of it, however) and every path looks pretty much the same, so it
can be pretty easy to get lost. You can still bring up the main battle map by
pausing the game to get a general idea of where you are. You basically need to
just keep heading south and stick to one of the sides, try not to find yourself
in the middle of the maze.

Zhuge Liang and Wang Ping will eventually show up later down in the main camp
by Liu Bei, then they will advance along the right and left paths. This won't
happen for a little while, and unless you get lost in the maze you should be
able to kill Liu Bei before they arrive.

SHU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Start out by clearing out the Wu forces pushed up in the south. Go take down
the two enemy bases, kill Pan Zhang and take the enemy checkpoint. Now head up
north to where Zhao Yun is and take that enemy base and secure the one
checkpoint right there. If you have time, continue just a bit farther north
and kill Han Dang.

Once the Wu army starts pulling back, watch Ling Tong's unit. Wait for him to
push up right where the bridge is. Go over to where the bridge is going to be
and you'll notice that you can see him across the river just standing there.
Here's a tip to make things a bit easier for you: kill him with charged arrows.
It doesn't take that many to kill him; I counted four on normal difficulty.
If he's surrounded by soldiers you may need to kill a few of them in order to
hit him, but this will make things easier in the future as you won't have to
deal with him after the bridge is laid out (plus he'll be in hyper mode then
too.)

Don't bother advancing for now, just wait in this area for the bridge to be
laid out. Once the bridge goes down cross it and head straight for Zhu Ran -
he should be by himself for now since Ling Tong is dead. Hurry up and kill
him before Gan Ning can come to his aid.

With Zhu Ran dead the fire attack will have failed. Now all that's left to do
is advance on the enemy camp and finish off all of the other Wu units. Once
that's done go kill Sun Quan to end the battle.

SHU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head out into the first open area to be greeted by a Nanman beast unit. You'll
then get a message saying to take down the first enemy base so Yue Ying's
weapon can repel the beast unit. So go do just that to unleash some
juggernauts into the area. Then go kill King Mulu. Meng Huo will appear out
of a hidden path in the lower left hand portion of this area, go kill him once
he does. Advancing through this shortcut will make it appear on the minimap,
although there is no point in going through that area right now.

Instead head south along the main path and kill Ahui Nan and Dong Tu Na's
units. There is another shortcut here that you can find if you simply head
straight instead of turning right at the first turn. This shortcut can connect
you over to the area where Wei Yan is, avoiding the poison marsh. But for now
just head south towards the marsh anyway. Meng Huo will appear again in front
of the marsh, kill him once he does. Once you enter the poison marsh Zhuge
Liang will tell you that an enemy base is preventing the transport of the
materials needed to overcome the poison. Go forward and take down the base so
some logs can be spread out along the marsh that you can use to traverse it
(even though your allies don't...)

Take out the enemy checkpoint in this area and continue forward. Around this
time Meng Huo should appear again in the very upper left portion of the map.
Don't bother turning around just yet, we'll use that shortcut you found earlier
in just a minute to get to him quicker. But first, continue forward and defeat
King Duosi and Jinhuan Sanjie. Enter the next big area to encounter the armor
troops, ignore them for now and use that hidden northern path to go back up to
the first area and kill Meng Huo.

Now go back down to where the armor troops are and kill Wu Tugu to get rid of
the armor troops. Secure the checkpoint and take out the enemy base as well.
Meng Huo will appear yet again in this same area, so go kill him once he does.
Zhu Rong will then push into this area from another hidden path to the south.
She's on an elephant, which is pretty annoying, but other than that she's
easy to deal with.

Meng Huo will appear again in the hidden path to the north, and he will come
down into the area where you are. Kill him yet again once he does; he just
doesn't give up, does he? Continue south and take the enemy base. Meng Huo
will appear again at the checkpoint in this area, and this time he'll promise
no more retreating. So go and kill him, and what does he do? He retreats again.
Big surprise.

Around this time Dailai Dongzhu and Yang Feng will arrive as reinforcements,
each on opposite sides of the map. It's up to you if you want to backtrack and
kill them, or just continue forward and storm the enemy camp. I'll just keep
going forward, if you want to kill them just turn around and do so. Go forward
and take down the final enemy base. After you push through the base you'll
hear Meng Huo say that he better get back out there. Keep pushing into the
main camp and he'll do just that. Meng Huo will appear for the seventh and
final time in the main camp. Kill him this last time (of course he has
commander strength and defense) to finally end the battle.

NANMAN FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The first thing you want to do is clear the southern area of the enemy troops
that are advancing on your main camp. Since you're on the Nanman side now all
of the hidden paths are viewable on your minimap, regardless of if you're
traversed them or not. So if you start out in the northern area take the one
hidden path to the south and take out the enemy checkpoint and base. Kill
Wei Yan, both of his sub-officers, and all of the enemy soldiers down there.

Continue forward into the next area and take the enemy base and checkpoint.
Head over to the left area where Wu Tugu is and kill Wang Ping and Zhang Yi.
The Shu army will fall back and Wu Tugu will follow them. Once Wu Tugu enters
the large area an enemy task force will appear with exploding pots. Kill the
four task leaders to rescue Wu Tugu's unit.

Now head over to the poison marsh, which will not affect you now since you're
on the Nanman forces. Kill Yan Yan and Huang Zhong, then head over to the
area on the right and kill Guan Suo and secure the checkpoint. This will allow
some reinforcements to join the battle from here.

Now head north and kill Yue Ying and destroy her juggernauts to save Jinhuan
Sanjie's unit. You'll then get a message saying that enemy reinforcements are
about to arrive at the checkpoint all the way at the west, quickly go and
secure that checkpoint to prevent them from coming. If you fail to secure it
in time then you'll have to deal with Ma Chao's unit. Once all of that is
taken care of go secure any remaining bases and march into the main camp and
kill Zhuge Liang to end the battle.

So you'll want to first rescue An Ding and Nan An, obviously. First head over
to Cui Lang and save him first by killing Zhao Yun and Guan Xing. An Ding
Castle is now saved, so let's go save Nan An by killing Wang Ping and Zhang
Bao. Once that's done go finish off any stragglers, most likely Wei Yan, Yue
Ying and Ma Dai. Then just go defeat Zhuge Liang to win. Easy one.

SHU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First thing to do is take both An Ding and Nan An Castle. It doesn't really
matter which one you take down first, just go to whichever one is closest to
where you start. To take both of the castles you will have to kill Xiahou Mao
and Cui Liang. Guan Xing will most likely be killed by Jiang Wei, but don't
worry about it.

Go kill Wang Lang and Han De next. After a little bit Zhuge Liang will release
Xiahou Mao back into Tian Shui Castle, and Wei will become suspicious of Jiang
Wei. Once this happens head over to Jiang Wei. Jiang Wei will attempt to turn
around and head back to Tian Shui Castle, don't let him. Cut him down while
he tries to head back. He will be in hyper mode and he gets a defense x2
bonus as well as a musou rage bonus when enough of his health has been knocked
down, so he's a bit annoying to kill.

Now head back up to Tian Shui Castle. Kill some generic soldiers around the
castle while you wait for Ma Zun to give up and flee from the castle. Once he
does a new defeat condition will appear: if Ma Zun reaches the escape point.
So simply kill him before he reaches the escape point and you'll win. He's not
on a horse so it shouldn't be too hard.

Isolate Ma Su by killing Gao Xiang and Wang Ping. Once that's done head back
up to the mountain to attack Ma Su, and kill Zhang Bao on the way. Now go up
and kill Ma Su, he'll be hiding in the base. Once that's done you'll have to
wait for the rest of the Shu reinforcements to arrive and kill all of them.
While you're waiting go kill Jiang Wei and Ma Dai. Jiang Wei is in hyper mode,
but he doesn't get any bonuses or go into musou rage so killing him isn't too
bad.

Eventually Wei Yan will some up as the first reinforcement in the lower right
hand portion of the map. Shortly after Xing Cai will show up in the enemy
main base at the lower left hand portion of the map. Then after her Ma Chao
will show up at the southern checkpoint in the middle of the map. And finally
after him Zhuge Liang will appear in the enemy main camp. Note that Sima Yi
says to kill all of the enemy reinforcements, but really all you have to do
is kill Zhuge Liang once he shows up for the battle to end.

SHU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wait for Ma Su to take the neutral base on the mountain before advancing too
far into enemy lines. If you start down on the southern road secure the enemy
checkpoint and take out Deng Ai. Once Ma Su reaches the top of the mountain
a Wei task force will appear and will collapse the bridge (this event is
unstoppable.) Now let's go rescue this idiot. Go kill Cao Zhen and Zhang He.
Now Sima Yi will say they're going to retake the foot of the mountain - stop
this plan by killing Fei Yao, Wang Lang and Sima Yi.

Now that all of that is taken care of just finish off the remaining units and
go kill Cao Pi once he arrives to end the battle.

First close off the two enemy checkpoints on the top, larger portion of the
castle where you start off. Zhang Yi will also be up here to start by the
lower checkpoint, so kill him once you see him. Go up to the northern
checkpoint and also that as well. Gao Xiang should be up there also, so kill
him once you see him too. Now go down the eastern path and kill Wang Ping. You
can destroy the ram that should be there too if you want.

Take down the enemy checkpoint halfway down the eastern slope, and then
continue downward. You should run into Wei Yan who is heading up the slope,
kill him once you do. Now head down to the eastern most base and take it
capture the armory and stop the rams. Yue Ying will arrive in the central area
of the map afterwards.

There are four officers hanging out around the center base right now, so
take on this area with caution if your character isn't very powerful. You
should be able to deal with Zhang Bao in the north without any disruption, but
Yue Ying likes to join in the fight when you go to take down Jiang Wei. Kill
all of the officers around this area and then take down the central base to
cut off their supply of siege ramps. After doing this Jiang Wan's unit will
show up at the southeastern corner of the map as enemy reinforcements. Either
go kill him or just ignore him and continue on.

Now go take down the last enemy base, and Huang Zhong who should be hanging
around it. After you take down the last base Zhuge Liang will appear at the
main camp (right next to where you're at.) Go kill him to finish the battle.

SHU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clear out all of the enemy forces by the castles main walls (where the seige
ramps are heading.) There are several enemy sub-officers here, so make sure
you kill all of them. Don't bother waiting for the seige ramps to set up, since
they take a long time, plus as long as the castles defenses are up they will
probably just keep getting destroyed (not to mention you can't go up one on a
horse...) So that leaves the only other route for getting inside the castle
the eastern path, so go head on up it.

As you advance up the eastern path you'll run into several enemy ambush units.
Just ignore them and continue on up the path. Once you're inside the main
castle kill Zhang He and his four sub-officers and secure the three enemy
checkpoints. See those three defense captains lined up along the castles outer
edge? You'll want to kill them, but not just yet! First, kill Cao Ren. If you
kill even just one of the defense captains first, Cao Ren will go into hyper
mode. So instead just kill Cao Ren first, THEN kill the three defense captains
to put a stop to the castles defenses.

Killing Cao Ren will open up the east gate. From here it's up to you if you
want to go through the inner west gate and kill Hao Zhao and the defense
captain that's stopping any allied soldiers into the western side of the
castle. If not then head north and kill Hua Xin to open the inner east gate.
Then finally kill Wang Lang to open the last castle gate leading to Sima Yi.

Depending on how long it takes you to finish this battle you may see all or
none of the enemy reinforcements. In total five officers show up as
reinforcements, all of which show up near your three bases to the south.

This castle is huge, and what you want to do first usually all depends on where
you start out in the castle. If you start on the right side then make your
way down to the bottom, killing Taishi Ci's two sub-officers along the way,
and then finally Taishi Ci himself. Then make your way across the southern
portion of the castle - all three of Lu Xun's sub-officers are scattered about
down here, so kill them all. Find Lu Xun's ram, it should be in the castle
by now nearing the main gate, if it isn't there already. Once you've found it
destroy it.

If you start out on left side then make your way down killing Cheng Pu's three
sub-officers along the way. Quickly dip outside the castle and kill Cheng Pu
once you're at the western gate, then go back inside the castle and make your
way across the southern portion. Kill Lu Xun's three sub-officers who are
scattered about down here, and find his ram and destroy it as well. Then make
your way over to the east side of the castle and kill Taishi Ci.

After about five minutes into the battle the Wu navy will appear over at the
eastern gate, so make sure around the five minute mark you're there waiting
for them. Since you destroyed the first ram Lu Xun will call up another one
from the boat here. It will appear right on the first boat, which is where you
should be, so just destroy it right away. Now go kill Jiang Qin and Pan Zhang
who are part of the fleet.

Shortly after the Wu navy appears enemy reinforcements will show up on the
mountain at the top left corner of the map. Head straight up and kill Sun
Shao's unit to remove this threat. Once that's done all that's really left to
do is to kill any remaining officers and then Sun Quan himself to end the
battle. Good luck.

WU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is pretty straight forward. You want to open all three of the main outer
gates so your entire army can storm the castle. Once you open whichever one
you decide to open first, go around and open the other two, just ignore the
enemy officers for now. After that's done it's time to advance into the
castle. Unfortunately killing Xu Huang won't open the main gate, but kill him
anyway before advancing through the right or left side.

Pick either the right or left side, and make your way into the castle. Kill
all officers and sub-officers that you meet along your route. There are
annoying fire spitting lions along each path, but they're easy to ignore just
go straight through them. Head down to the main gate, which you are now on the
other side of. Head up the stairs to the right and left of the gate to find
the two defense captains. Kill both of them to stop the catapults, allowing
your ram to break down the main gate (after... a long time.)

After that all there really is to do anymore is to proceed through the castle
killing the rest of the enemy officers until you get to Cao Pi. Finish off
Cao Pi to end the battle victorious.

WU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most of the main officers are over on the eastern side of the map, hanging out
around Bai Di Castle itself. Huang Zhong is really the only one near where you
start, so start off by killing him first. I suggest you take the two enemy
bases to the north of your main camp as well. Some peasants will join to fight
for the Shu army, and after a little bit Ma Chao's unit will head for the
mountain pass and disappear from the map briefly.

Push a little bit into the central path leading up to Bai Di Castle. Kill Xing
Cai's two sub-officers, Zhang Bao and Zhang Yi, and take the enemy base in
this area. But don't go any further than that, and don't engage Xing Cai just
yet. Now I suggest going down to the southern path and helping out your
forces there a bit. Take the enemy checkpoint and base, and defeat any sub-
officers in the area.

Continue up the southern path towards Bai Di Castle. Although this is the
longest route, you don't have to deal with any annoying arbalests. The central
path has the most arbalests, and the northern path is Jiang Wei's little stone
maze. This isn't really a maze though, all you do is follow the path (you can
only go one direction) until you get to the middle room, where there is a
statue. Destroy the statue and some petty soldiers appear. Kill them all to
open the door leading up to the castle.

Don't venture to far towards the castle though, because Ma Chao will soon be
reappearing at your main base near Sun Quan to kill him. Once he does head
straight back and take him out. He will be in hyper mode, and gets an attack
x2 bonus and also goes into musou rage mode.

Once Ma Chao is taken care of continue your assault on Bai Di Castle. The
castle is very annoying, as there are arbalests everywhere. As I said earlier,
I suggest taking the southern route to Bai Di Castle. Even though it's long,
there aren't as many annoying arbalests. Also when you're down there you'll
want to secure the checkpoint at the right corner of the map so your allied
reinforcements can arrive. From there head north and kill Guan Xing and take
the two enemy bases.

Kill Yang Yi to open the rear gate. You'll be greeted by an arbalest, so go
inside the castle to find yet another arbalest right behind the first one.
Destroy that one, then destroy the one facing the gate. Then go around the
castle destroying all of the other arbalests inside from behind. The northern
gate will be open, so go through it and kill Jiang Wei then return to the
castle and go to the main gate (south). Kill Jiang Wan to open the main gate.
Now kill Xing Cai. She'll be in hyper mode, so destroy the first arbalest on
the hill leading up to the castle (the one right outside the main gate)
to get an attack x2 bonus. Use that to help kill her.

Once Yue Ying shows up go kill her as well. Now all that there is left to do
is to kill Liu Chan, so go do that to finish the battle.

SHU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wu will be all around Bai Di Castle, so you'll want to focus on pushing them
back. Kill Zhou Tai and Chen Wu to the north, then clear out the middle area
of a bunch of soldiers and any sub-officers hanging around. From the middle
go down to the southern path and hit Wu from behind: kill Sun Shao and Huang
Gai. Make sure you push all the way up to Huang Gai and kill him, as he tends
to lay waste to Huang Zhong pretty quickly.

Once you see the battle message saying that Ma Chao is moving to rescue the
peasant militia, meet up with him in the middle area of the town. This is all
you have to do to rescue the militia. Kill Lu Xun and Ding Feng while you're
down here.

Eventually Gan Ning and Pan Zhang will show up as reinforcements. Once they do
make sure you go kill Gan Ning first, because he tends to make quick work of
Huang Zhong if he's still in the area.

When you approach Sun Quan you'll fall into a trap of his, and his unit will
disappear and an ambush unit will appear. He will reappear down at the real
main camp, which is at the lower left hand corner of the map. So now head down
there to find him and kill him.

WEI FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the start of the battle, all of the main Shu officers will be on the other
side of the river. First go around and start taking down the enemy bases on
your side of the river. Wei Yan's three sub-officers will also be lurking
around the bases, so kill them as you run into them. Clear out any soldiers
by the front of your three bases; try to prevent the enemy from advancing into
any of your three bases.

Once Zhong Hui and Deng Ai arrive as reinforcements they will be ambushed by
Zhang Yi. Quickly run over to Zhong Hui and kill Zhang Yi to save him. You'll
need to escort him into the first base there in order for him to start setting
up the catapults. Problem is the gate will most likely be closed since enemies
will be near the area. Clear out the area of all nearby enemies to open up the
gate so Zhong Hui can go inside.

By now Wei Yan and Ma Dai will have pushed across the river and will probably
be close to each other in the middle of the map. Go over and kill them, but
be careful as those two can quickly bring down an underpowered character.
Around this time the enemy supply line will be spotted, so go over to the
middle checkpoint on the right side of the map and kill the defense captain
standing by it to cut off the supply line. Might as well close that enemy
checkpoint while you're there as well.

Your forces on the left will probably be getting pummeled by Wang Ping by now,
so go help them out. Once Wang Ping is dead Zhuge Liang will pass away, and
Jiang Wei will now become Commander of the Shu army. The Shu army will start to
retreat, so now let's go push them back. Cross the river and kill Liao Hua.
Once you've crossed the river Guan Suo will appear as reinforcements on the
left side of the map, so go kill him.

Another ambush will appear, this will consist of Jian Yong on the northern part
of the map to the right, and a large enemy group of arbalests on top of the
hill in the middle of the map. I say just push past them and ignore them and
continue to the enemy main camp. If you wish to finish off Yue Ying and Jian
Yong then go right ahead. Note that there are some exploding pots near Yue
Ying, and you have to kill the two task leaders to disable them. There are also
juggernauts both where Yue Ying and Jiang Wei are, which adds for some extra
fun. Kill Jiang Wei to end the battle.

SHU FORCES
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Advance across the river and take down the two front enemy bases to secure the
supply line. Next you have to escort the wooden oxen to the front lines. So
head over to the left side of the map and secure the central checkpoint, then
start clearing out the area of enemies. Cao Rui and his sub-officer, Wang Lang,
should be around this area, so kill them once you run into them.

By now Cao Xiu and Zhong Hui are probably pushing down on the right side, so
quickly run over and dispose of them. Close off the enemy checkpoint in the
center on the right if you haven't by now. Now it's time to start advancing
on the enemy bases. I suggest going to the base all the way on the left, and
you'll see why in just a second.

Kill the gate captain at the left base and enter it. Once you enter it, Deng
Ai's unit till appear directly to your north, at the checkpoint on the left.
He will start heading towards Cao Ren's location. If he reaches it, he will
set up the catapults and go into hyper mode. Therefore you'll want to kill him
before he can reach his objective. Killing him is kind of annoying though,
because he won't really attack you he'll just keep trying to run to his
objective. Don't let him get away, make sure you kill Deng Ai.

Now that that's taken care of, go back to the left base and finish taking it.
Then go take the other three bases and kill off all of the officers on the
front line (Zhen Ji, Cao Ren, Xu Zhu.) If you advance towards Sima Yi on the
left, Xiahou Ba will order a rockslide. Climb to the top of the hill and kill
him to stop it. If you advance towards Sima Yi on the right side, Sima Zhao's
ambush unit will appear. Just kill all of the soldiers and Sima Zhao himself
to eliminate the threat. Whichever way you go, advance towards Sima Yi and
kill him to end the battle.

Much like the previous Dynasty Warrior games, you can buff up each officer
by equipping different items to them. Each officer has 7 max slots available
to equip items. One of the slots is for a "saddle" type of item only, another
one of the slots is for an "orb" type of item only, and the other remaining
5 slots are for what I call "general" types of items. Of course when you first
start playing as a new officer (as in he has no current experience) there will
be only 2 general item slots available. The rest will become available as the
officer gains experience.

Now as for the type of different items in the game, I've broken them down into
three different categories: in-game items, regular items, and rare items.
Regular items and rare items are the types of items that can be permanently
equipped to your character, like discussed in the above paragraph. In-game
items are items that are dropped by dead enemies during the battle. These types
of items offer some type of boost to your officer. This boost may be a
permanent boost in your characters stats, or it can be just a temporary boost
that only lasts for a short amount of time. For more information about all
of these different types of items please refer to the respective sections
below.

IN-GAME ITEMS                                                            [INGM]

In-game items are items that offer some type of boost to your character during
the battle. Most of the time these boosts are temporary, lasting a small set
amount of time. These types of in-game items can be found by breaking open
crates or urns, or are dropped by dead soldiers. There are also some in-game
items that offer a permanent boost to your stats. These are usually dropped
by officers or sub-officers, but a few of them can also be found by smashing
open some urns. More information on all of these types of items is listed
below.

REGULAR ITEMS                                                            [REGU]
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Regular items are items that you can equip to your character to give them a
permanent stat boost/ability so long as the item is equipped. All regular
items are equipped to a character via the "general" item slots. All of these
items are found by collecting dropped item sacks in battle. All of these
items have a level to them from 1-20. The higher the level, the greater the
effect of the item. For example, a Level 20 Peacock Amulet will have a much
greater increase to your health as opposed to a Level 5 Peacock Amulet.
The level of the item is completely random, however playing a battle on a
higher difficulty increases your chance of getting a higher level item.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Rare items act in the same way that regular items do: they are equipped to
characters to give them a permanent ability/bonus/boost so long as the item
is equipped. The difference is that rare items can only be found by completing
certain requirements on specific stages. There are three types of rare items:
harnesses, orbs, and general items. Each character can equip one harness
item and one orb item. General items are equipped the same way regular items
are. Rare items can be found on any difficulty EXCEPT for orbs. Orbs can only
be found while playing on _HARD_ difficulty.

When you successfully fulfill the requirements for a rare item, you will see
the text show up that says "A valuable item has been discovered!" The words
"valuable item" will be in green to make it stand out even more. If you forget
where it is just go to the battlelog and find the valuable item message and
highlight it. It will point to where it is. Go to that location and you'll
find a crate that looks different then the regular wooden ones; it's red and
gold. Smash it open to find a shiny bright red item sack. Then all you have
to do is successfully complete the battle to nab the item for good.

| Red Hare Harness                                                            |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Effect      : Begin stage mounted on Red Hare (fastest horse in the game)   |
| Stage       : Battle of Chang Shan (Yuan Shao's forces)                     |
| Requirement : Defeat Liu Bei, Zhang Fei, and Guan Yu within one minute of   |
|               each other.                                                   |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| For starters it's easiest to do this on easy difficulty, obviously. This    |
| makes it much quicker to kill the three officers. Zhang Fei and Guan Yu are |
| sub-officers of Liu Bei, therefore you'll want to kill them before Liu Bei. |
| Liu Bei guards the west gate of the castle, Zhang Fei guards the east gate, |
| and Guan Yu guards the south gate. I suggest going through the east gate and|
| defeating Zhang Fei first. That way you don't have to go running around back|
| and forth. Kill the eastern gate captain to open the gate, then kill Zhang  |
| Fei who is standing right inside. Go down to the south gate and kill Guan   |
| Yu. Now head over to the west gate and kill Liu Bei. So long as you killed  |
| each of them within one minute of each other the valuable item report will  |
| appear near the outside of the western gate, by the enemy checkpoint.       |

| Hex Mark Harness                                                            |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Effect      : Begin stage mounted on Hex Mark (increases luck)              |
| Stage       : Battle of Cheng Du (Liu Bei's forces)                         |
| Requirement : Defeat Zhang Ren before he kills Pang Tong in an ambush.      |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| This is very simple, especially if you have it on easy difficulty. Once you |
| start the stage just make a straight B-line for Zhang Ren. When you start   |
| going up the slope near him his ambush unit will appear. Just ignore them   |
| and go right up to Zhang Ren and kill him. The valuable item will appear    |
| towards the middle of the forest. If Pang Tong gets near Zhang Ren before   |
| you do and springs his ambush unit then he'll be killed and you won't be    |
| able to get the item.                                                       |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+


+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Storm Harness                                                               |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Effect      : Begin stage mounted on Storm Runner (increases mounted attack)|
| Stage       : Battle of Guan Du (Cao Cao's forces)                          |
| Requirement : Defeat both Yan Liang and Wen Chou before Guan Yu does.       |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| All you have to do here is kill Yan Liang and Wen Chou before Guan Yu kills |
| then. Guan Yu will kill them shortly after entering battle with them, so    |
| it helps if you already have another horse (preferably Red Hare, since that |
| is the horse that Guan Yu has as well) so you can beat him to them. This is |
| a four star stage, so I recommend you do it on easy mode also. Depending on |
| what character you pick you'll start at a different place, but I suggest    |
| you kill Yan Liang first since that's who Guan Yu will head out for first.  |
| Once Yan Liang and Wen Chou are both dead the valuable item will appear up  |
| north by Yuan Shao's main camp, in the little strip of land to the right.   |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

| Shadow Harness                                                              |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Effect      : Begin stage mounted on Shadow Runner (cannot fall off horse)  |
| Stage       : Battle of Liang Province (Allied forces)                      |
| Requirement : Defeat Zhang Ji and Hu Zhen within 45 seconds of their        |
|               arrival.                                                      |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| This requires a horse, preferably Red Hare. Zhang Ji and Hu Zhen will appear|
| shortly after Dong Zhuo does. They appear at the checkpoints just past the  |
| enemy bases on the top right and bottom left corners of the map. To get     |
| Dong Zhuo to appear just kill all of the enemy officers. Once he's arrived, |
| head out to one of those two bases, doesn't matter which. Just wait there.  |
| Once you hear Dong Zhuo say something about not coming with a plan, get     |
| ready, they're about to show up. Quickly kill one and then head down to the |
| other (they'll start to make their way towards the middle area.) Obviously  |
| it helps if you have a buffed up character and are playing on easy. So long |
| as you kill them within 45 seconds of their arrival you'll get the valuable |
| item crate around the middle of the map.                                    |

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Effect      : Begin stage mounted on Elephant                               |
| Stage       : Battle of Nan Zhong (Nanman forces)                           |
| Requirement : Rescue Wu Tugu, King Mulu, and King Duosi within 5 minutes.   |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| For starters, kill Zhang Jiao and Pei Yuan Shao, who start off near your    |
| main camp. This will make the phantom army disappear and stop the threat of |
| them attacking your main camp. Now to rescue your allies. Head north and    |
| kill Zhang Bao to rescue Wu Tugu. Head along the path and go kill Bo Zhang  |
| to rescue King Duosi. Now head south and kill Zhang Liang to rescue King    |
| Mulu. As long as you did all this within 5 minutes you'll receive the       |
| valuable item up in the middle of the poison swamp area.                    |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

| Fire Orb                                                                    |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Effect      : Add fire damage to attacks                                    |
| Stage       : Battle of Si Shui Gate (Allied forces)                        |
| Requirement : Get 200 KOs within 2 minutes of the battle start.             |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Even though it must be done on hard, this isn't too terribly difficult since|
| Si Shui Gate is only a one star stage. You'll need a horse and a really     |
| buffed up character - a maxed out Lu Bu will work just fine. Head out to the|
| middle area and you should have no problem racking up 200 kills there. I can|
| usually get it by at least a minute and a half. Once you do the valuable    |
| item crate will appear in the supply depot at the top right corner of the   |
| map.                                                                        |

| Ice Orb                                                                     |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Effect      : Enemies may be temporarily frozen                             |
| Stage       : Battle of Guan Du (Yuan Shao's forces)                        |
| Requirement : Defeat Cao Pi before Guan Yu kills Yan Liang and Wen Chou.    |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Guan Du on Yuan Shao's side is only a one star stage, so this isn't too     |
| difficult. Guan Yu will kill both Yan Liang and Wen Chou by 4 minutes, so   |
| you essentially have 4 minutes to kill Cao Pi. Simply rush Cao Pi and kill  |
| him as quickly as you can. The valuable item will appear inside Wu Chao.    |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+


+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Shadow Orb                                                                  |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Effect      : Empties Musou Gauge and enemies may be defeated in one blow   |
| Stage       : Battle of Wu Zhang Plains (Wei forces)                        |
| Requirement : Defeat Jiang Wei before Zhuge Liang dies.                     |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| This will require the work of a very buffed (as in maxed out) character,    |
| since Wu Zhang Plains is a five star stage. The actual task itself is simple|
| enough - just kill Jiang Wei before Zhuge Liang dies. So all you really need|
| to do is rush Jiang Wei right at the start and you should have plenty of    |
| time to kill him, so long as you have a buffed up character. If Zhuge Liang |
| dies then Jiang Wei will take control over the Shu army and once you kill   |
| him the battle will be over. Once you've done so the valuable item crate    |
| will appear a little south of Wei's central base, at the middle of the map. |

| Light Orb                                                                   |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Effect      : Attacks break through the enemy's guard                       |
| Stage       : Battle of Wu Zhang Plains (Shu forces)                        |
| Requirement : Defeat Cao Ren, Xu Zhu, and Zhen Ji within 5 minutes of the   |
|               battle start.                                                 |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| You're going to need a really buffed up character for this since each of    |
| these guys takes quite a beating to go down. Cao Ren, Xu Zhu, and Zhen Ji   |
| are all behind Wei's three bases; Xu Zhu is near the left, Cao Ren is in    |
| the middle, and Zhen Ji is on the right. I suggest you either work from the |
| left to the right or the right to the left, depending on which area you     |
| start at. If you go for Cao Ren first you'll have to run back and forth a   |
| bit to kill both Xu Zhu and Zhen Ji, and you'll need all the time you can   |
| get. Obviously a horse is also required. Once you've completed the          |
| requirements the valuable item will appear down on the Shu side of the      |
| river, a little to the left of the central plateau where the arbalests show |
| up (it's on top of the mountain area, so you have to go all the way around  |
| and cross the river on the left side by where the Shu checkpoint is, then   |
| go up the hill there.)                                                      |

| Requirement : Defeat Zhuge Liang as he's retreating.                        |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| In order to get Zhuge Liang to retreat the fire attack must either be       |
| successful or prevented. To prevent the fire attack all you must do is      |
| defeat Huang Gai. This is the quickest way to make Zhuge Liang retreat since|
| you don't have to wait around for the fire attack to succeed. To get Huang  |
| Gai to show up just go down to the boat where Zhou Tai is. Huang Gai will   |
| appear and start heading towards the one boat, kill him before he gets      |
| there. Once you've killed him start heading over towards Zhuge Liang. After |
| a little bit you'll hear Zhuge Liang say that this fight no longer has any  |
| need for him, and you'll get a message saying that he's retreating. Now is  |
| the time to defeat him. Once he's defeated the valuable item will appear    |
| on one of the boats towards the center of the map.                          |

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| This is an easy one, all you have to do is defeat Liu Bei, Cao Cao, Sun     |
| Jian, and Gongsun Zan. Once you do the valuable item will appear on the     |
| eastern path leading towards Hu Lao Gate.                                   |

| Requirement : Defeat Zhang Liao, Kong Xiu, Han Fu, Bian Xi, and Xu Huang.   |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| This is simple enough. All of these officers are along the path you must    |
| take, and you have to defeat them to open up the gates anyway. Just make    |
| sure you actually defeat Zhang Liao and he doesn't retreat, or else you     |
| won't get it. The valuable item appears near where you start, right before  |
| the first gate.                                                             |

| Requirement : Defeat Ma Chao after he arrives.                              |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| First thing you should do is rescue Zhang Liang. Do this by first claiming  |
| the neutral base near your main camp. Then go and defeat the base that      |
| Zhang Liang is outside of. Once you do it should say that he's heading for  |
| the base. Once Zhang Liang is inside the base and has been rescued just     |
| wait around that area for a bit. Shortly after Ma Chao will show up. Now    |
| just quickly defeat him for the item to appear. The valuable items shows up |
| on the alter at the main camp where Zhang Bao is.                           |

| Requirement : Defeat Xiahou Yuan before Cao Cao arrives.                    |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| It takes about 5 minutes for Cao Cao to show up, so this isn't too hard.    |
| Still, Xiahou Yuan is in hyper mode, so unless your character is pretty     |
| buffed up it's best to do this on easy mode just to kill Xiahou Yuan        |
| quickly. As long as Xiahou Yuan is defeated before Cao Cao arrives the      |
| valuable item will appear at the Shu checkpoint on the top left corner of   |
| the map.                                                                    |

| Requirement : Defeat Cao Ren within 5 minutes of the battle starting.       |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Five minutes is plenty of time to defeat Cao Ren, so this isn't too         |
| difficult. Don't bother waiting for the ram to destroy the central door that|
| Cao Ren is behind, it takes too long. You have to go around one of the      |
| sides. You'll have to defeat one other officer to open one of the doors on  |
| either side, but other than that just ignore everyone else and go straight  |
| for Cao Ren. Once he's defeated the valuable item will appear in the next   |
| section of the castle along the right wall. Defeat Xu Zhu to gain access to |
| the area and grab the item.                                                 |

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| This is easy enough, just make sure Zhang Bao and Zhang Liang are defeated  |
| before you defeat Pei Yuan Shao. Once Pei Yuan Shao is defeated then the    |
| valuable item will appear near the enemy base on the lower right corner of  |
| the map.                                                                    |

| Requirement : Defeat Sun Jian before Cao Cao's unit arrives.                |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| It takes awhile for Cao Cao to arrive, so you have plenty of time to kill   |
| Sun Jian. You might as well just rush him, it doesn't take much to take him |
| down. Once he's defeated the valuable item appears in the middle of the     |
| small strip of land to the north of Si Shui Gate.                           |

| Requirement : Defeat 3 beastmasters within one minute of the battle start.  |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| The beastmasters are over by King Mulu's unit, so a horse is obviously      |
| required for this. It only takes a few seconds to get over there on a       |
| horse, and even less time to actually kill three beastmasters. Once you've  |
| completed it the valuable item will appear down in your main camp on the    |
| right side.                                                                 |

|               Sima Yi.                                                      |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| When the battle starts wait for Ma Su to reach the top of the mountain. A   |
| Wei task force will appear and will collapse the bridge, isolating Ma Su.   |
| Now go and defeat Cao Zhen and Zhang He to secure the mountain foot. Sima   |
| Yi will say something about recapturing the foot, and will start to move to |
| the center of the map. Ignore him for now, for Xu Zhu should have shown up  |
| by now and will be heading for the main camp. Go hunt him down and defeat   |
| him. Now go defeat Sima Yi to rescue Ma Sa and to get the item. The valuable|
| item will appear down along the southern road near the enemy checkpoint.    |

|               first one.                                                    |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| I would recommend doing this on easy since it doesn't take as much to       |
| destroy the juggernauts. To get the juggernauts to appear go up to the      |
| northern center of the map where Yue Ying is. There will be 7 juggernauts in|
| total, and once you destroy one you have 5 minutes to destroy the others.   |
| They're all in that one little area so it shouldn't be too difficult. Once  |
| you've done this the valuable item will appear in the southern area of the  |
| base where Wu Tugu is.                                                      |

|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Head down to the main gate of the castle to find the first ram. Depending on|
| how quick you get there it could still be near the gate to the left of Lu   |
| Xun which is where it comes from. Either way, once you find it, destroy it. |
| Now head over to where the Wu navy shows up and wait for them there. Once   |
| they appear another ram will show up there on the boat, so destroy it. Then |
| kill Jiang Qin and Pan Zhang. Soon after Sun Shao will show up near Cao Pi, |
| so run up there and kill him as well. The valuable item will show up on top |
| of the inner castle wall, to the right of the central door.                 |

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| As long as you have a horse, this is actually pretty easy (especially if you|
| have the difficulty on easy.) Xu Huang appears in the southwestern corner   |
| of the map once you approach the area, so quickly go kill him once he does. |
| Xiahou Dun shows up at the very top right corner of the map, shortly after  |
| Zhang Liao appears for the second time. He immediately starts making his    |
| way south, so make sure you're waiting for him. So long as you killed them  |
| both within a minute of their appearance the valuable item will appear by   |
| the southern left checkpoint near the middle of the map.                    |

In Dynasty Warriors 5, each character has four different weapons. The first
weapon is the characters default weapon, and the second and third weapon can
both be found by playing various stages and collecting weapon crates that are
either in boxes scattered throughout each stage or dropped by a defeated
officer. Each weapon is better than its predecessor, with more attacking
power and more attacks in general. Each character has one fourth weapon that
is considered their "ultimate" weapon. Fourth weapons differ from the regular
first three weapons in several aspects:

 - They have a set weight: either light, normal or heavy. The weight is not
   a random value set when you acquire the weapon.
 - They have set attributes. These also are not randomly assigned when you
   acquire the weapon.
 - After 100 kills, as long as the characters fourth weapon is equipped, you
   will be dropped a musou rage token. This is one of the best aspects of
   using a characters fourth weapon.
 - Every fourth weapon has evolution built into it.

Much like special/rare items, fourth weapons can only be gotten on certain
stages after certain criteria are met. For one, you must be playing on hard
or chaos difficulty. Secondly, you must be playing as the character with which
you're trying to acquire the weapon: meaning if you're trying to get Zhao Yun's
fourth weapon, you must be playing the stage as Zhao Yun. As far as I know,
no two player trick can be used to get the weapon (this was a favorite method
for obtaining some of the harder ultimate weapons on previous DW games.)

After you successfully meet all of the requirements you will get a valuable
item report showing you where on the map the weapon can be picked up, much like
with special/rare items. The crate that the weapon is in will look the same as
the crate for special/rare items: gold with some red on it. And when you smash
it open the weapon crate will be glowing a might brighter red then normal.
I usually suggest you save after getting the fourth weapon, as some of these
stages and requirements can be pretty damn difficult.

Now whether or not some characters fourth weapons are actually an _improvement_
over possible third weapon combinations is up to debate. You see the attributes
on the first three weapons are random and will be different for every weapon
you find. Therefore some players have found that for some characters, who have
what are considered rather poor fourth weapons, finding a good third weapon
with better attributes is more desirable then just using their actual fourth
weapon. Personally I just use every characters fourth weapon once I have
acquired it. While I agree that some fourth weapons are pretty poor, I believe
the fact that you get a musou rage token for every 100 kills plus the inherent
evolution and extra power boost is worth it. But to each their own.

In this section I will list the exact requirements for obtaining each
characters fourth weapon as well as what stage it must be obtained on. I will
list the info of the weapon, as well as what strategy I have found useful in
obtaining the weapon. I will also rate the difficulty of obtaining the weapon
from 1 to 5; 1 being very easy and 5 being very hard. This section will now
be further subdivided into each of the three kingdoms.

                 Life +17
                 Def +17
                 Musou +17

 Stage: Battle of Cheng Du (Liu Bei's forces)

 Requirement: Capture Luo Castle

 Strategy: This is pretty easy. Zhao Yun starts right near the southern fort,
 so go forward and kill Lei Tong to open the east gate. Now go kill Liu Xun,
 who is hiding in the southern corner of the fort. Next go and kill the two
 guard captains guarding the north and west gate. Once both of the gates are
 open you'll see a message saying that Luo Castle has been captured and the
 valuable item will appear right in the center of the castle, near the well.
 Grab it and then finish the stage to claim the weapon.

 Difficulty: 1/5 - This is very easy. Zhao Yun should have no problem tearing
 through these guys, especially since this is an easy stage and Zhao Yun is
 a pretty good character.

 BLUE MOON DRAGON
  - Power:       38
  - Attacks:     6 (+Evolution)
  - Weight:      Light
  - Attributes:  Charge +16
                 Def +17

                 Horse +16
                 Atk +18

 Stage: Battle of Fan Castle (Shu forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Niu Jin and Yue Jin before the water attack, and then
 make sure the water attack is successful.

 Strategy: Yue Jin and Niu Jin are two sub-officers of Cao Ren who start off
 the battle at the very north section of the map. It just so happens that they
 are the ones who push Guan Pings unit, trying to prevent the water attack.
 So getting rid of them will essentially make the water attack successful here
 anyway, so you're pretty much killing two birds with one stone. So once the
 battle starts head north towards Guan Ping and you should run into Niu Jin
 first. Once you find him go ahead and kill him. Yue Jin will be hanging out
 near that base to the north (directly in front of you), so head over there
 and kill him also. Depending on how long it took you to kill Niu Jin he could
 actually be making his way over to you. Either way, just find him and kill
 him. Now you just have to wait for the water attack to succeed. In the mean
 time you can go and take down some enemy bases or defeat some officers. The
 hardest part of this level is probably killing Pang De after the water attack,
 but here's a little trick to make things much easier: first, make sure Guan Yu
 has Red Hare or at least some horse. Once Niu Jin and Yue Jin is defeated, go
 down to where Pang De is and knock him off his horse. Now just gallop around
 in a circle around Pang De. Wait until you hear a soldier say that the river
 is going to flood any second now. Keep going around in a circle. Once you see
 a message telling you to escape to higher group, quickly run up the slope onto
 land. The river will flood, and Pang De will still be in the ditch, therefore
 he will be dead! The bridge will appear, and the valuable item is inside Fan
 Castle all the way in the right corner.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Finishing the stage is actually harder then getting the
 weapon itself. However it's much easier if you use the strategy I supplied
 above for killing Pang De; otherwise he's pretty annoying to kill.

                 Horse +16
                 Atk +19

 Stage: Battle of Chang Ban (Liu Bei's forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Xiahou Dun, Wen Pin, and Xiahou En, without any of three
 crossing the bridge

 Strategy: Go directly forward to find Wen Pin and kill him. Now continue
 forward to meet up with Xiahou Dun; kill him as well. Now just to kill Xiahou
 En, who is probably still all the way back on the far left corner of the
 map. Take a little trip down there and kill him once you find him. The
 valuable weapon will appear on the bridge. You'll have a little bit of a mess
 to clean up now in the south, seeing as how the enemy forces probably took
 most of the neutral bases, and the fire attack will probably fail as well.
 But it's not a very hard stage so this shouldn't be too difficult to finish.

 Difficulty: 1.5/5 - You have to be pretty lazy (or really bad) to let any
 of these three cross the bridge. Once you run into them they'll engage you in
 battle, so it's not like they keep running for the bridge and you have to
 run them down. Plus the only one who even spawns remotely near the bridge is
 Wen Pin, and he can be taken out easily. Overall very easy fourth weapon.

                 Def +18

 Stage: Battle of Tian Shui (Shu forces)

 Requirement: Capture Nan An Castle and An Ding Castle, and then defeat Jiang
 Wei before he can return to Tian Shui Castle.

 Strategy: To take An Ding Castle defeat Cui Liang, and to take Nan An Castle
 defeat Xiahou Mao. Now while you wait for Ma Zun to get suspicious of Jiang
 Wei go take out some of the enemies in the north, including Wang Lang and
 Han De if you have time. After a little bit Zhuge Liang will release Xiahou
 Mao back into Tian Shui Castle, and he will tell Ma Zun that Jiang Wei has
 defected to Shu, making Ma Zun suspicious of Jiang Wei. Now head over to the
 right path where Jiang Wei is and take down the enemy base and secure the
 checkpoint. Wait around a little bit longer until you get the message saying
 that Jiang Wei is heading back to Tian Shui Castle. Now go attack Jiang Wei
 and kill him before he reaches the castle. Jiang Wei is in hyper mode, so
 killing him will be a little difficult, especially if Zhuge Liang isn't very
 buffed up. Just spam his musou to make short work of Jiang Wei, and use any
 musou rage tokens if you have any. A good method to killing him quickly is
 to approach him with a full musou, and quickly use the musou on him before
 you get a cutscene (he won't go into hyper mode until after the cutscene.)
 If you can land all direct hits on him he should be dead even before he can
 go into hyper mode! The valuable item will appear in the middle of Nan An
 Castle.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - If you can kill Jiang Wei before he goes into hyper mode
 then I would consider it a 1.5/5. After Jiang Wei is dead the rest of the
 battle is a breeze. Just make sure you kill Ma Zun before he has a chance to
 escape!

                 Def +18

 Stage: Battle of Yi Ling (Shu forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Ling Tong, Gan Ning, Sun Shang Xiang, and Lu Xun

 Strategy: Ok this may seem pretty difficult since you're killing four main
 officers, but it's really not that bad, so long as your Liu Bei isn't too
 underpowered. First I suggest just going around and clearing out the central
 area of enemies while you wait. I usually secure the checkpoint and enemy base
 thats right by where Liu Bei spawns, and then head north a bit and defeat
 Zhu Zhi and Han Dang. What you want to be watching out for is Ling Tong's
 unit: wait until you see him start to move up to where the bridge layer is on
 the mini map. Ling Tong starts pushing up once you get the message that the
 Wu army is falling back. Once he does, run over to the bridge and position 
 yourself so you can see him across the river. Now start shooting charged 
 arrows at him. You may have to kill a few generic soldiers that are in front 
 of him in order to hit him directly. It took me 9 charged arrows to kill him.
 Once that's done just wait for the bridge to fall down, then cross it and
 kill Zhu Ran (you don't HAVE to prevent the fire attack, but it certainly
 helps and you might as well just do it.) Next kill Gan Ning who should be
 pushing down to where you are. Now go over to the right side of the map which
 is where Sun Shang Xiang should be. Approach her to see a cutscene, after
 which she will try to flee. Make sure you kill her, don't let her flee! She
 won't attack you, but she'll keep trying to run away, so stay ahead of her.
 After that just go kill Lu Xun. The valuable item will appear on the narrow
 right hand path, just below the river.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Not very hard. Perhaps can be a little difficult if you
 don't use my strategy and kill Ling Tong with arrows from across the river,
 as Zhu Ran may end up being successful in the fire attack since he has Ling
 Tong there to distract you. But taking down these four officers really isn't
 that difficult.

 STALLION FURY
  - Power:       38
  - Attacks:     6 (+Evolution)
  - Weight:      Medium
  - Attributes:  Horse +20
                 Def +16
                 Life +15
                 Spd +15
                 Atk +17

 Stage: Battle of Tong Gate (Allied forces)

 Requirement: Knock Cao Cao off his horse before he crosses the river

 Strategy: Ok this weapon is a joke, seriously. Here's what you have to do:
 once the battle starts, head straight to Cao Cao and hit him once so he
 falls of his horse. There you go, that's all you had to do. Obviously you'll
 need a horse for this since Cao Cao heads over to cross the river pretty early
 on in the battle, but this is so easy it's ridiculous. The valuable item will
 appear in the area to the north, to the left of the northern most base.

 Difficulty: 1/5 - There really is no difficulty to this weapon, it's probably
 the easiest one to get in the game. Then again, since Ma Chao is such a beast
 on Shadow Runner, I guess there really wasn't a point in making this a hard
 fourth weapon to get, since with Ma Chao you really _can't_ make it hard...

                 Horse +15
                 Def +15

 Stage: Battle of Mt. Ding Jun (Shu forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Xiahou Yuan and Zhang He before Cao Cao arrives

 Strategy: Despite this being a two star stage, this weapon is very difficult.
 Cao Cao arrives in about five minutes into the start of the battle, so you'll
 want to waste no time here. Right off that start of the battle head straight
 down the mountain towards Xiahou Yuan. This guy is why this weapon is so
 damn tough to get. Xiahou Yuan will be surrounded by tons of enemy soldiers,
 many of them being archers, and Xiahou Yuan is in hyper mode of course. He
 will get a defense x2 bonus once some of his health is knocked down, and he
 will regain some of his health along with the defense x2. Then when even
 more health is taken down he'll go into musou rage mode. I suggest just
 running around and avoiding him while he's in musou rage, as he can kill you
 pretty quick. I suggest have Huang Zhong equipped with Huang's Bow as well
 as Fire Arrows. The best way to kill Xiahou Yuan quickly, I've found, is to
 spam your T(+T) charge against him. The fire arrows will burn his health down
 pretty quickly. This is the most reliable way I've found to kill him at least.
 Once Xiahou Yuan is dead quickly run to the south and kill Zhang He, who is
 not difficult to kill at all (thankfully.) The valuable item will appear
 at the base of the mountain (the slope that you went down in the beginning to
 get to Xiahou Yuan.) Afterwards, if Liu Bei is getting swarmed quickly go
 and assist him. Once he's free of danger go kill Cao Cao to end the stage.

 Difficulty: 5/5 - This is one of the hardest of the fourth weapons to get
 in my opinion. Xiahou Yuan is super buffed up, and Huang Zhong isn't exactly
 the most powerful character. You'll need to have Huang Zhong's stats really
 buffed for this one, and even then you'll need a little bit of luck to kill
 Xiahou Yuan quickly. However one thing that helps is that there is one soldier
 around Xiahou Yuan who always drops a musou rage token, so make sure you keep
 your eye out for that because you'll definitely need it!

                 Musou +18

 Stage: Battle of Tian Shui (Wei forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Gao Xiang after Ma Zun begins to flee

 Strategy: Once the battle starts just head up to the north and just stay
 there and wait for the enemy to slowly make work of your allies. Once things
 start to get bad a fake Jiang Wei will show up outside of Tian Shui Castle.
 Shortly after this Ma Zun will open up the castle gates and flee to the road
 east of Tian Shui Castle. Now Gao Xiang will show up at the northeastern
 checkpoint. Run over there and kill him for the valuable item to appear
 near the northwestern checkpoint. Now to finish the stage, let's go and clear
 out all of the officers outside of Tian Shui Castle. By now it's probably
 just you and Ma Zun, so make sure you don't let him die. Ma Zun will somehow
 get "lost" while attempting to flee, so you never actually have to worry
 about him fleeing since he never knows where to go. Go kill all of the other
 officers and once you feel that Ma Zun is safe on his own for a bit go
 finish off Zhuge Liang to end the battle. Of course don't forget to claim
 your weapon before doing this.

 Difficulty: 1.5/5 - Really all you have to do here is wait. This isn't a
 difficult stage so killing any officers isn't hard. You just have to make
 sure Ma Zun stays alive once things get hairy at the end.

 Stage: Battle of Chen Cang (Shu forces)

 Requirement: Defeat the four defense captains within 10 minutes

 Strategy: This is pretty simple. There are four defense captains: three of
 which are up on top of the castle wall to the right, and one which is behind
 the castle door on the left. Ten minutes is plenty of time to kill them, so
 before you head out for the castle get rid of the three sub-officers down on
 the ground in front of the castle, as well as some of the enemy forces. Then
 head up the eastern hill to get inside the castle. Kill Zhang He if you want,
 but DEFINITELY kill Cao Ren before you kill ANY of the three defense captains.
 If you kill any of the defense captains before you kill Cao Ren, he'll go
 into hyper mode and be much harder to kill. And in order to open the gate to
 progress into the next section of the castle, you have to kill Cao Ren.
 Therefore it is most wise to kill him first. Then kill the three defense
 captains alongside the castle wall. Go through the now opened gate and go
 to the gate to the left. Kill that guard captain to open it up, and go into
 the next area. Continue past Hao Zhao and go south to the castle door where
 the last defense captain is. Kill him for the weapon to appear on the one
 castle wall where Sima Yi is.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Not too difficult. You'll probably have to do a lot of
 running around afterwards though, because a bunch of Wei reinforcements ambush
 you in the south. Make sure Zhuge Liang stays alive.

 Stage: Conquest of Nan Zhong (Shu forces)

 Requirement: Overcome the Nanman beast unit, the poison swamp, and the armor
 troops.

 Strategy: This is pretty straight forward. To overcome each of these things
 you basically just have to do what Zhuge Liang tells you to. When you start
 out you'll be over at the area to the right. Go down to the base that's right
 in front of you and occupy it. This will cause a bunch of logs to be laid
 out in the swamp, overcoming the poison. Now head up to the north, where
 King Mulu is. Once you enter the area you'll see a cutscene with some tigers
 and elephants. Go take down the enemy base to the right so some juggernauts
 can come in and repel the beasts. Now head back down through the poison swamp
 and take the path to the left to the next area where Wu Tugu and an enemy
 base are located. Once you go inside you'll be greeted by the armor troops.
 To get rid of these guys go and kill Wu Tugu. Once that's done the valuable
 item will appear in the small path leading to the poison swamp from the
 north.

 Difficulty: 3/5 - It's really not a difficult stage or anything, but Pang
 Tong sucks so that bumps up the difficulty a bit.

 Stage: Battle of Wu Zhang Plains (Shu forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Deng Ai before he sets up the catapults

 Strategy: Ok this can be pretty tough, especially since this is a five star
 stage and Yue Ying isn't exactly an officer slayer. From her start you should
 go forward to run into Guo Huai. Now continue north and defeat Cao Rui's
 two sub-officers, Xiahou Wei and Wang Lang, both of who are outside the base.
 Cao Rui himself will push down and start attacking your wooden ox, so go and
 kill him to secure their safety. Help out any allies who are in danger, since
 you'll want to keep as many people alive for as long as possible to help you
 out. Once you feel that you're morale is high enough for your allies to hold
 their own, at least for a little bit, head into the LEFT base (note that
 you shouldn't go around slaying enemies for TOO long, because eventually
 Deng Ai will arrive within a certain amount of time anyway. You don't want to
 trigger his arrival like that though, you want to trigger it by entering the
 left base.) Once you enter the left base Deng Ai will appear at the checkpoint
 directly to the north of you. Run up there and start attacking him. He's
 going to try to run towards Cao Ren, and if he gets there he'll start setting
 up the catapults. Therefore you have to kill him before he makes it there.
 He isn't in hyper mode or anything, so killing him shouldn't be too tough.
 I suggest you have a musou rage token handy though, as it will make it easier
 if you're having a tough time killing him before he can set up the catapults.
 The valuable item will appear over on the hill overlooking the right base.

 Difficulty: 4.5/5 - This is a tough one. For one, Yue Ying sucks, I don't
 care what anyone says. So you'll need to have her stats pretty much maxed out
 for this. Wu Zhang Plains is a five star difficulty map, which doesn't help
 either. But the most annoying part of this is that Deng Ai will keep running
 away from you while you try to attack him. Add in the fact that he's
 surrounded by peons and officers (like Xu Zhu and Cao Rui, depending on how
 quickly you rush him) who like to hit you allowing him time to escape and this
 can become quite a headache to achieve. But it's certainly do-able.

 Stage: Escape from Chi Bi (Allied forces)

 Requirement: Defeat all enemy officers

 Strategy: Take not that you need to defeat only officers, you do NOT have to
 defeat sub-officers as well if you don't want to. Ok for starters go forward
 and kill Cao Ren. He's in hyper mode so killing him is pretty annoying. After
 that's done continue forward and defeat Zhang Liao. Now head north towards
 Xiahou Dun and kill him next. Xiahou Yuan should be appearing just north of
 Xiahou Dun shortly, but don't go for him just yet. Wait for Cao Zhang to show
 up back around where Zhang Liao is. Run back and kill him. Jia Xu will also
 show up to the north, near the escape point. Just ignore him for now as well
 and go kill Cao Zhang. After killing Cao Zhang don't head back up north just
 yet; wait around a minute or two for Cao Hong to show up to the south. Now
 run down and kill him. After that you can start heading back up north again,
 and kill Jia Xu who you'll probably run into along the way. Then go up and
 kill Xiahou Yuan. After he's dead head over to the area around the escape
 point and just wait for Cao Cao's last officer to show up. It takes Xun Yu
 about 13 minutes to show up, so you'll probably have to wait around a little
 bit. Once he shows up quickly kill him. The valuable item will appear just
 north of where the bridge that Cao Cao destroyed was. You have to go down
 there and get it before Cao Cao reaches the escape point. But by now the
 entire allied forces should be surrounding Cao Cao, so he shouldn't be able
 to escape very easily.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Not too difficult as long as Guan Ping is pretty buffed
 up. None of the officers are especially hard except maybe Cao Ren.

 Stage: Battle of Bai Di Castle (Shu forces)

 Requirement: Escort Liu Chan back into Bai Di Castle and rescue the peasant
 militia

 Strategy: Both of these requirements are pretty simple to fulfill within
 themselves, the hard part about this is just finishing the battle, really.
 It doesn't matter which one you do first, but I recommend escorting Liu Chan
 back into the castle. To do this what you need to do is just get your health
 get low (orange will do it.) I suggest just going down the hill once you
 start the battle to find Zhang Cheng. Stand amongst the crowd of enemies and
 let them just hack away at you. Once your health hits orange you'll see a
 message saying that Liu Chan is heading to Xing Cai's side. Once he's out of
 the castle run up the hill to meet him. A cutscene will occur, and after it's
 over run back into the castle and Liu Chan will follow. Now you'll want to
 go get some health: there's a +200 health in the urn by the checkpoint at the
 bottom of the hill, and a +100 health in the urn by the checkpoint where Ma
 Chao is. The peasant militia should be showing up shortly, after which Ma Chao
 will go down to rescue them. Once he does, follow him down. All you have to
 do is run into the middle of the area there to rescue the peasant militia.
 The valuable item will show up by the northern checkpoint in Bai Di Castle.
 Now it's time to go kill some officers to raise morale and turn the tide of
 this battle around, as I'm sure most of your units are struggling by now.

 Difficulty: 3.5/5 - Like I said, the two requirements to getting the weapon
 are pretty easy themselves; the tough part is just finishing the level.
 Bai Di Castle is five stars, and Xing Cai is no Lu Bu. You'll need to buff
 her up pretty good, and make sure you save after you're about half way! (I
 don't think saving after just getting the weapon is necessary here, since it's
 so easy to do. Unless you're not getting the weapon until after you've already
 slain a bunch of officers, of course...)

 Stage: Battle of Fan Castle (Wei forces)

 Requirement: Stop the flood attack (aka Kill Guan Ping)

 Strategy: This is simple enough, all you have to do to prevent the flood
 attack from happening is kill Guan Ping. So once the battle starts head over
 to the area where Guan Ping is and start hacking away. Guan Ping isn't hard
 to kill, so this should be no problem so long as Xiahou Dun is moderately
 built up. The valuable item will appear down in the middle of the enemy main
 base at the lower left hand corner of the map. Just finish the rest of the
 battle like normal and make sure your claim your weapon before slaying Guan
 Yu.

 Difficulty: 1.5/5 - Very simple, hardly anything to this.

 Stage: Battle of Wan Castle (Cao Cao's forces)

 Requirement: Do not let any task leaders through the gate as Cao Cao escapes

 Strategy: Ok to start off head over to the other side of the castle to meet
 up with Cao Cao. Start slaying all soldiers around him and make your way down
 the castle with him. Eventually Hu Che Er will show up, so kill him once he
 does. Now keep killing more soldiers until Cao Cao starts to finally retreat
 to the escape point. Once he nears it Jia Xiu will show up at the gate. Just
 kill him to let Cao Cao escape. Now is when the fun begins. Task leaders will
 show up two at a time and attempt to break through your guard and reach the
 escape point. Stand near the escape point and just hack them down as they
 come. They can only come at you from one direction, so this isn't really too
 hard. Make sure you don't let any slip by you, or else you'll have to try
 again. Sometimes they can be a little tricky and try to zig zag past you,
 so be careful. Also don't let any peons start slashing at you or else the task
 leaders might find some room to escape. But as long as Dian Wei is moderately
 buffed up task leaders should go down in just a few hits so this isn't too
 difficult.

 Difficulty: 1.5/5 - Very simple, just be wary of zig zagging task leaders.

 Stage: Battle of Tong Gate (Cao Cao's forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Pang De and Ma Chao before Han Sui

 Strategy: First of all, don't charge into where Ma Chao is, wait for him to
 charge you. Hang out in the river and kill Li Kan as well as his forces. One
 of his guards should drop a musou rage token, be sure to pick it up and use
 it against either Ma Chao or Pang De, you'll need it. Ma Dai's forces will
 also push into the river and attack you, so make quick work of him before Ma
 Chao gets to you. Once Ma Chao charges you, it's time to take him out. Of
 course Ma Chao is in hyper mode, gets an attack x2 bonus, and also will go
 into musou rage. Fun times. Once Ma Chao is taken care of let's go play with
 Pang De. And as I'm sure you could have guessed, Pang De is also in hyper
 mode. He gets a defense x2 bonus and will also go into musou rage. Once Pang
 De is dead as well the valuable item will appear in the middle of the river.
 Now you just have to kill Han Sui to finish the battle.

 Difficulty: 5/5 - This is a tough one. Xu Zhu is terrible, and you have to
 defeat two hyper officers who each get a bonus AND go into musou rage on hard
 mode. Not fun. The only saving grace is the fact that this stage is only a
 two star difficulty stage.

 Stage: Battle of Xia Pi (Cao Cao's forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Gao Shun before he reinforces the floodgate too much and
 defeat Zhang Liao

 Strategy: You have to defeat Gao Shun pretty quickly. He will head for the
 floodgate and reinforce it at least once before you can get to him, but don't
 let him do it anymore than that. Once he's defeated the castle will flood.
 Now head over to Zhang Liao and kill him next. The valuable item will appear
 right outside the southern portion of the castle, near the water.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - All you really need is a horse for this. Defeating Gao Shun
 and Zhang Liao is easy. I bumped up the difficulty .5 just for having to
 deal with Lu Bu, even though he isn't very tough either.

                 Musou +17

 Stage: Battle of Chi Bi (Cao Cao's forces)

 Requirement: Prevent all three parts of the fire attack

 Strategy: There are three parts to the fire attack: the ships being chained
 together, the summoning of the wind, and the actual fire attack itself.
 Technically the ships will be chained from the start of the battle, but you
 need to kill Pang Tong shortly after he defects. Conveniently enough you start
 the battle right behind Pang Tong, so follow him south a bit and wait for him
 to defect. Once he does bash his skull in. After that's done head over to
 Zhuge Liang and kill him to prevent the winds. Now head along the southern
 most chain of ships to the large ship where Zhou Tai is. Huang Gai will show
 up once you get there, and in order to prevent the final part of the fire
 attack you have to kill him. He's in hyper mode, but doesn't get any kind of
 stat bonuses so he isn't too difficult to kill. The valuable item will show
 up over on the strip of land to the left where Zhuge Liang was.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Nothing hard here. Chi Bi is easy on Cao Cao's side, only
 thing here that might be kind of hard/annoying is killing Huang Gai since
 he's in hyper mode. But he still isn't hard, it just takes a while to kill
 him.

 Stage: Battle of He Fei (Wei forces)

 Requirement: Kill 9 officers or sub-officers before Cao Ren arrives

 Strategy: It takes Cao Ren about 10 minutes to show up, so you have plenty
 of time to do this. From where you start go forward and kill Ma Zhong who is
 just south of the base in front of you. Now go kill Ding Feng and Pan Zhang,
 who are both in between the enemy base and your base. Now cross the bridge
 into the next area and find both Zhou Fang and Zhu Huang and kill them. The
 bridge will be destroyed, so now head north and go kill Taishi Ci's two
 sub-officers, Chen Wu and Zhu Ran, and then Taishi Ci himself. Now all you
 have to do is defeat one more officer or sub-officer, so head south and kill
 one of Sun Quan's sub-officers or something. The valuable item will appear
 by the Xiao Shi Bridge.

 Difficulty: 2.5/5 - Not too bad, but you'll need a pretty buffed Zhang Liao
 to slaughter 9 officers quickly. And you'll obviously need a horse to get
 around. But still, not too much of a challenge considering that Zhang Liao is
 pretty good.

 Stage: Battle of Chen Cang (Wei forces)

 Requirement: Take all three enemy bases before any damage is done to the
 castle

 Strategy: This is pretty simple, you just have to occupy the three bases
 down below where the enemy supplies are coming from. First head down the
 eastern path and either kill Wei Yan or just ignore him. Head for the first
 base and take it down. Yue Ying will appear as reinforcements after you take
 down the first base, but just ignore her and continue on to the middle base.
 Take that one down next. Then finally move on to the last base and take that
 one down as well. As long as no damage has been done to the castle (unless
 you've really been poking around this shouldn't be a problem) the valuable
 item will appear up on the wall of Chen Cang, to the left. If you're having
 trouble and getting swarmed by enemies, don't feel the need to rush things.
 You can take your time and clear the area of enemy officers before moving on,
 but don't poke around too long.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - All you're doing here is taking down enemy bases. Nothing
 to it but to do it... yeah that was lame.

 Stage: Battle of Chang Ban (Cao Cao's forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Guan Yu and Zhang Fei after Liu Qi arrives

 Strategy: Ok at the start of this battle go down south and take all of the
 neutral bases EXCEPT the one in the very middle, as that's the one that Liu
 Bei will go through and you want him to go through it. After that's done head
 back up north and start killing some enemy officers. Everyone is fair game
 except Zhang Fei and Guan Yu, obviously. If you can, try to get to Zhao Yun
 before he reaches Liu Bei. Eventually Guan Yu will arrive with reinforcements
 in the southwestern portion of the map. Zhang Fei will then retreat from the
 bridge, and Liu Bei should be around the middle area of the map. Keep going
 around killing soldiers to pass to time, or go get bake a pizza or something
 while you wait. Finally, after Liu Qi arrives, it's time to go kill Guan Yu
 and Zhang Fei. Liu Bei will start heading towards the escape point, but if
 you took my advice earlier and took the bases in the south at the start of the
 battle the one base will be blocking Liu Bei's path, and he will have to
 stop his advance and take it down (or at least the gate captain.) So go kill
 Guan Yu and Zhang Fei in the meantime, neither are especially difficult.
 Once they're dead the valuable item will appear down by the docks where Guan
 Yu showed up. Go grab it and then kill Liu Bei to finish the battle (who
 probably hasn't made any progress past that base by this point.)

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Neither Guan Yu nor Zhang Fei are in hyper mode, so both
 are pretty easy to defeat. Overall an easy stage as well.

 Stage: Battle of Jie Ting (Wei forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Ma Su as he's retreating

 Strategy: To get Ma Su to retreat you have to surround him on the mountain.
 This is pretty easy to do. First go kill Gao Xiang, and you might as well
 secure that enemy checkpoint while you're there too. After that's done go down
 and kill Wang Ping. You can kill Zhang Bao on your way there too, if you
 wish. Once he's surrounded Ma Su's unit will stop attacking and will pull
 back to the summit. You have to wait a little bit until he starts retreating.
 In the meantime you might as well head south and kill Jiang Wei awhile. He's
 in hyper mode so he's just extra annoying to kill as usual. Ma Dai should be
 the only other officer left at this point, so you might as well go kill him
 too. Once you get the message that Ma Su is withdrawing to Shu's main camp
 go and kill him. The valuable item will appear on the northern most path
 leading up to the mountain. Now just wait for Zhuge Liang and the rest of the
 Shu reinforcements to appear to end the battle.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Nothing difficult here. Ma Su is very easy to kill.

 Stage: Battle of He Fei Castle (Wei forces)

 Requirement: Get 300 kills and meet with Cao Pi to trigger a cutscene

 Strategy: There is no time limit that you need to get these 300 kills, making
 this rather easy. To keep morale high, you should also be focusing on killing
 enemy officers and taking down objectives. I suggest you advance through the
 castle from your starting point towards Taishi Ci, killing all enemy soldiers
 along the way. Spam Zhen Ji's musou, as that will be your quickest method
 of killing massive amounts of soldiers. Once Taishi Ci is dead start clearing
 out the southern portion of the castle. Lu Xun has three sub-officers down
 here just begging to be killed, and the ram is also probably knocking on the
 front door by now. Go get rid of all of these threats while also laying waste
 to the regular peons. Once the Wu navy appears over at the eastern gate,
 head over there and deal with them. Destroy the second ram that Lu Xun calls
 up from the navy boats as well. A little bit later Sun Shao's until will show
 up over on the mountain near Cao Pi. By now you should have 300 kills, so
 let's go head up over there to kill Sun Shao and trigger the cutscene with
 Cao Pi. All you have to do is approach Cao Pi for the cutscene to appear. The
 valuable item will appear on Sun Quan's ship... gee, how convenient. Go finish
 the stage and claim your weapon.

 Difficulty: 2.5/5 - Even though this is a five star stage and the officers
 can be a little rough, there is no time limit to this so you can take your
 sweet old time. Basically just go through the stage as you would a normal
 battle. You'll have 300 kills in no time, plus you'll give Zhen Ji's stats
 a good boost. Just make sure she's somewhat buffed going into this battle so
 she can deal with Sun Quan at the end.

                 Atk +15

 Stage: Escape from Chi Bi (Cao Cao's forces)

 Requirement: Defeat all enemy officers that ambush Cao Cao before your allies
 slow them down

 Strategy: Basically you just have to follow Cao Cao around and defeat all of
 the main officers (sub-officers are no included) that ambush Cao Cao before
 your allied officers slow them down to allow Cao Cao to continue marching.
 So follow Cao Cao into the first ambush who happens to be Cheng Pu. March
 forward towards him and kill him. Cao Cao will continue marching, and Han Dang
 will show up behind him. Quickly run back onto the burning ship and kill Han
 Dang while Cao Cao continues to march forward. Once he's dead head back to
 Cao Cao, who has probably run into Zhu Zhi by now. Go forward and kill Zhu
 Zhi. Follow Cao Cao north into Zhao Yun's ambush, and then kill him as well.
 Continue forward to run into Zhang Fei, and kill him. Guan Ping will be the
 next officer to ambush Cao Cao just up ahead; you know what to do. Now start
 to head back towards the south; see that little boat down by the ocean (not
 the one you started on)? Head down towards there. Sun Quan is going to appear
 there, so head straight for him and kill him. Once Sun Quan is dead the
 valuable item will appear up in the little path north of the bridge (the path
 doesn't lead anywhere.) Take note that you don't have to kill Guan Yu, who
 will retreat shortly after he appears. All you have to do is go kill Liu Bei
 who is guarding the escape point to win.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Nothing too hard about this one. Sun Quan is a little
 tough, but that's about it.

                 Atk +15

 Stage: Battle of Wu Zhang Plains (Wei forces)

 Requirement: Destroy all of the arbalests while Cao Ren is still alive

 Strategy: Ok this weapon is a pain in the ass. First of all I recommend that
 you do this level on his musou mode. The reason being is that this is his
 fourth stage on his musou, therefore this stage technically becomes a four
 star difficulty stage. If you do this in free mode, the difficulty is five
 stars. And believe it or not that one less star will be a BIG help. Now as
 for the actual methods of obtaining this weapon: You'll want to do this as
 quickly as possible, because your allies, including Cao Ren, get their asses
 kicked in pretty quick. First you want to cause Zhuge Liang to die, and to do
 this you need to kill three officers (NOT sub-officers.) I suggest Wei Yan,
 Wang Ping and Liao Hua, since they're all near each other in the center.
 A little bit after that's been done you'll get the cutscene where Zhuge Liang
 has died and Jiang Wei will become the enemy Commander. Now while you wait
 for the arbalests to appear there's a few things you can do. First of all,
 cut off the supply line. After that's done kill any other officers roaming
 about near the middle. Keep a close eye on Cao Ren, make sure you clear out
 any enemy soldiers that are pushing up on the central base. Believe it or not
 even these lousy soldiers will make quick work of Cao Ren if your morale
 starts to drop. Once the arbalests have been set up run up the hill in the
 middle of the map to reach them. There's a whole bunch of them along the
 edges of the mountain, and a few in the middle. Take them all out, and be
 careful because there's also a bunch of juggernauts roaming about up there.
 Once all of the arbalests have been destroyed the valuable item will appear
 right up there on the mountain where you're at. Grab it and go finish the
 stage; then pat yourself on the back!

 Difficulty: 5/5 - One of the hardest fourth weapons to get in the game. I
 would say that, if done in free mode, probably _the_ hardest weapon to get.
 Why? Well for one it's Wu Zhang Plains on hard, and secondly Cao Pi is a
 pretty craptastic officer. Not to mention the fact that you have to babysit
 Cao Ren and make sure he doesn't get killed, which happens a lot easier then
 you might think it would.

 Stage: Battle of Mt. Ding Jun (Wei forces)

 Requirement: Defeat all enemy officers (sub-officers need not be included)
 besides Liu Bei and Fa Zheng before Cao Cao arrives

 Strategy: Well Cao Cao will only arrive after either Huang Zhong or Xiahou
 Yuan is killed. Therefore you obviously need to kill Huang Zhong last. Another
 thing to consider is that if you charge straight up the mountain then Huang
 Zhong is going to charge Xiahou Yuan, which means a pretty quick death is
 in the near future for Xiahou Yuan. So what you need to do is work around
 the base of the mountain, staying away from going up to the top until you're
 ready for Huang Zhong. Go south and kill Zhao Yun, then head up the mountain
 just to get to Guan Ping. Make sure you don't go any further then Guan Ping;
 in fact it's a good idea to stop a little below him and let him come down to
 you. Once he's dead you have to go back down the mountain and all the way
 around the base of the mountain over to Wei Yan. On your way to Wei Yan
 check for Wu Lan - he should have pushed down to the base of the mountain
 now, around where Xiahou Yuan is. Kill him on your way over to Wei Yan. Now
 go kill Wei Yan to the north. Once he's dead head back over to where Xiahou
 Yuan is. By now Li Yan's unit also should've charged down the hill and are
 at the base of the mountain. Kill him next. Once Li Yan is dead it's time to
 finally take on Huang Zhong. Charge up the mountain and engage him in battle.
 Lucky for you Huang Zhong is super buffed up in this battle - yes I am
 referring to hyper mode. Plus he will regain all of his health after about
 25% of it is done, and get a defense x2 bonus at the same time. And to make
 things even more fun he will go into musou rage mode. Once Huang Zhong is
 dead the valuable item will appear at the southern area of the map, where
 Zhao Yun was.

 Difficulty: 3.5/5 - The only difficult thing about this is killing Huang
 Zhong. As long as Pang De is pretty buffed up this shouldn't be too much of
 a problem though, seeing as how Pang De is a beast.

 Stage: Battle of the Wu Territory (Sun Ce's forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Wang Lang and Yan Baihu

 Strategy: Not really much to say here about this one, it's very easy. All you
 have to do is take the two forts. To do that you just need to kill Wang Lang
 and Yan Baihu. You start out closest to Yan Baihu, so go kill him first.
 After that is done go and kill Wang Lang. The valuable item will appear down
 in the enemy main castle on top of the western wall.

 Difficulty: 1/5 - Very simple. Taishi Ci is the only officer who might put up
 a bit of a fight, but it's nothing Zhou Yu can't handle.

                 Atk +15

 Stage: Battle of Bai Di Castle (Wu forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Ma Chao and Jiang Wei before Yue Ying arrives

 Strategy: Yue Ying will only arrive if you do one of two things: either
 enter the castle, or kill Xing Cai. She will show up shortly after you do
 either one of these things. Therefore, on paper, this is an easy weapon to
 get because you can avoid getting Yue Ying to appear for as long as you like.
 I say "on paper" because this stage is actually hard as hell. For one, Lu Xun
 is not exactly what I would call... um... "good." Plus this is a five star
 difficulty stage - and you cannot cheat around with the difficulty setting
 by playing his musou like you can with Cao Pi; this battle is Lu Xun's last
 in his musou so it's five stars no matter which way you try it. Now before
 you go gunning straight for your two targets lets start off by killing a bunch
 of the enemies surrounding you to raise morale. Clear out the two enemy bases
 in the south and kill Xing Cai's two sub-officers, Zhang Bao and Zhang Yi.
 Just chill around this area killing soldiers. Eventually Ma Chao will head for
 the mountain pass and will disappear off the map. Continue fighting off any
 soldiers/peasants around Sun Quan while you wait for Ma Chao to reappear. When
 he does it will be near Sun Quan, so let's go take him out. He's in hyper
 mode, and also gets an attack x2 bonus, and will also go into musou rage. Fun
 times, eh? Use all you got and try to take down Ma Chao as quick as you can.
 Next let's head towards Jiang Wei, but lets kill Huang Zhong in the process.
 Head up north and enter the stone sentinel maze. This isn't really a maze as
 there is only one path you can follow. When you reach the central room smash
 the statue to reveal a bunch of soldiers. Kill all of them to open up the
 last room leading to Jiang Wei. Now go kill Jiang Wei, he's not nearly as
 difficult as Ma Chao. Once he's dead the valuable item will appear in the one
 corner of the stone sentinel maze.

 Difficulty: 5/5 - This is another tough one. Like I said, Lu Xun is not the
 best officer to be taking on five star battles on hard mode. You'll need to
 make sure he's really buffed up for this one.

 Stage: Battle of the Wu Territory (Allied forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Sun Quan before Zhou Tai saves him from the ambush and
 then defeat Zhou Tai

 Strategy: This one is very easy. Once you start head over towards Sun Quan
 and start drawing him near Zhang Ying. After just a few moments Zhang Ying
 will taunt Sun Quan, and Sun Quan will threaten to "shut his mouth but good!"
 (...what?) Let Sun Quan follow Zhang Ying into the eastern fort. Once Sun
 Quan is inside he will be ambushed and will call to Zhou Tai for help. Quickly
 kill Sun Quan before Zhou Tai can get there. Now go run over to Zhou Tai and
 defeat him. The valuable item will appear up near the enemy ships in the
 north.

 Difficulty: 1/5 - Nothing hard about this one.

 Stage: The Invasion of Nan Zhong (Wu forces)

 Requirement: After Sun Shang Xiang meets with Sun Quan after being ambushed,
 defeat all enemy officers and sub-officers

 Strategy: The first thing you need to do is to get Sun Quan ambushed by King
 Mulu and Mang Yachang. To do this just go directly south to where Meng Huo is.
 Once you enter the enemy main camp Meng Huo will disappear and reappear more
 up towards the north, and King Mulu and Mang Yachang will break down the two
 walls closing in Sun Quan and ambush him. Return to Sun Quan for a cutscene.
 Now all you have to do is defeat all officers AND sub-officers. Start off by
 killing King Mulu and Mang Yachang. Then head down to the middle area and
 kill Ahui Nan and Dong Tu Na. Next go further south and kill Zhu Rong and
 Jinhuan Sanjie. Now head to the east and kill Meng You and King Duosi. Now
 just wait for Yang Feng and Wu Tugu to show up as enemy reinforcements. Once
 they do go kill them. The valuable weapon will appear in the river south of
 the western base.

 Difficulty: 1/5 - Very easy. If anything the hardest part might be killing
 everyone before your allies do.

                  Musou +15

 Stage: Battle of Si Shui Gate (Allied forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Lu Bu within five minutes of him appearing

 Strategy: Lu Bu is easy to defeat on this map (and in this game in general,
 compared to previous DW games) so this really isn't that hard. To get Lu Bu
 to show up you just have to get near the Si Shui Gate. Once he shows up you
 have to kill him within five minutes. It's a good idea if you can manage to
 find a musou token before you go to fight him. And it's also a good idea to
 kill Li Jue before approaching the gate so he doesn't decide to join in on
 the fight. Once you're ready approach the game for Lu Bu to show up and start
 unleashing your fury upon him. Lu Bu is in hyper mode, of course, and will
 get an attack x2 bonus as well as go into musou rage mode. Just evade him
 while he's in musou rage, as he _will_ make quick work of you. Once he's dead
 the valuable item will appear right by Si Shui Gate, near where Li Jue was.

 Difficulty: 2.5/5 - Lu Bu really isn't that hard to defeat. If you've played
 DW3 or DW4 you would know that he's a piece of cake in this version compared
 to those two. But none the less, you'll still want a pretty buffed up Sun
 Jian to kill him as quickly as possible.

                 Atk +16

 Stage: Battle of Chi Bi (Allied forces)

 Requirement: Ensure the success of all three parts of the fire attack

 Strategy: This is another weapon that I recommend you get on his musou mode.
 In Sun Quan's musou mode this battle is only his second stage, making the
 difficulty a simple two stars. However in free mode, it's five stars... quite
 the difference. Now to get the actual weapon itself there are three things
 you need to make happen: knock down the two connecting bridges, make sure
 Zhuge Liang summons the winds, and make sure Huang Gai sets the fire. Once all
 three of these conditions are met you'll get the weapon. When you start the
 battle let's go knock down the two bridges first. Go directly forward from
 where you start until you run into Wang Lang; kill him. Now head over to the
 west and find Cai Mao (a sub-officer of Xiahou Yuan) who is on the second
 bridge; kill him as well. Eventually you'll hear Pang Tong come up with the
 great idea of knocking down the bridges. You're already a few steps ahead of
 him though, so after he says that THEN the bridges will finally go down. You
 don't need to wait for him to say that to go kill Wang Lang and Cai Mao. Once
 the two bridges are down head over to Zhuge Liang and help clear out that
 whole area of enemies. Zhang Liao's two sub-officers, Wen Pin and Xun You,
 will be down there, so kill them both. Secure that lone enemy checkpoint as
 well. I wouldn't worry about going up and killing Zhang Liao himself, as his
 morale should be low enough now that Zhuge Liang can handle him. By now Huang
 Gai has headed for the fire ship, so go find his location and make sure he
 stays alive. Xiahou Yuan will head over to Huang Gai and try to kill him, so
 make sure you kill Xiahou Yuan once he gets near. It's probably a good idea
 to secure the one checkpoint nearby, or else wave after wave of enemy soldiers
 will keep appearing. Once Huang Gai appears safe you can head back over to
 Zhuge Liang (who should've began his prayer for wind by now) and kill Zhang
 Liao, who has probably pushed down. Huang Gai should be embarking shortly.
 Once he does just go around slaying officers and helping out any allies who
 appear to be in trouble. Now you just have to wait for the wind to be
 summoned and for Huang Gai to set fire to the enemy fleet. It doesn't matter
 which order this happens in; the first time I got this weapon Huang Gai set
 fire to the ship before Zhuge Liang summoned the wind. The valuable item will
 appear on the ship where Cao Hong is.

 Difficulty: 4/5 - This is pretty hard on free mode, especially since this is
 a five star stage. Luckily Sun Quan is a pretty good character and should be
 able to hold his own. But if you do this on his musou mode I'd knock down the
 difficulty rating to a 2/5, it's that much easier.

 Stage: Battle of Fan Castle (Wu forces)

 Requirement: Cause Fu Shi Ren and Mi Fang to defect, Xu Huang to appear, and
 then kill Zhang Fei and Zhang Bao with all three still alive

 Strategy: Ok for starters head north and start clearing out that whole area of
 Shu forces. Take down the enemy bases and defeat Liao Hua. Eventually Lu Xun
 will say something about morale being low between Fu Shi Ren and Mi Fang. Once
 he says this head down to Fu Shi Ren and attack him a few times to get him
 to defect. Now go do the same with Mi Fang. After this Guan Ping will move
 down to attack Fu Shi Ren, so go kill Guan Ping to make sure Fu Shi Ren stays
 alive. You should get a message shortly telling you to secure the one enemy
 checkpoint to allow the Wei reinforcements to arrive. So head over to that
 checkpoint and secure it, allowing Xu Huang to arrive. Wait around a little
 bit and Liu Feng and Meng Da will appear as reinforcements in the enemy main
 camp in the southwest corner. Kill them both. Continue waiting around for
 Zhang Fei and Zhang Bao to appear in that same place. It takes around 11
 minutes. Kill Zhang Bao first as he's Zhang Fei's sub-officer, then kill
 Zhang Fei himself. The valuable item will appear all the way up at the very
 north part of the map, near the river.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Nothing very hard about this one.

 Stage: Battle of Xia Kou (Huang Zu's forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Ling Tong and Ling Cao within two minutes of the stage
 starting

 Strategy: This is a one star difficulty stage, so this is actually very easy
 to do. However you want to kill Ling Tong BEFORE you kill Ling Cao, because
 if you kill Ling Cao first then Ling Tong will go into hyper mode, making
 him much harder to kill. So once the maps starts head straight past Ling Cao
 and go to Ling Tong. Kill him, then double back and kill Ling Cao. The
 valuable item will appear down where Cai Mao is.

 Difficulty: 1/5 - Very, very easy. Hell a buffed up Gan Ning and kill Ling
 Tong and Ling Cao just with one hit from his musou. Just make sure you kill
 Ling Tong first...

 Stage: The Yellow Turban Rebellion (Han forces)

 Requirement: Defeat all officers and sub-officers that are outside of Zhang
 Jiao's castle

 Strategy: So basically you're killing all officers and sub-officers other
 than Zhang Jiao, Bo Zhang, and Guan Hai. I suggest you have Red Hare equipped
 because you have quite a bit of distance to cover as this map is fairly large.
 From your starting position go forward and kill Yan Zheng. Zhang Bao is just
 ahead of you, but you can't kill him yet because he has a sub-officer near
 Zhang Jiao's castle. So now head back down south and go to the right. Find
 Gao Sheng and kill him. Now go north past the tornado and kill Zhang Liang
 himself. Now head north to the castle's outer walls. There are three sub-
 officers out here to kill: Huang Shao, Cheng Yuanzhi, and Pei Yuan Shao. Kill
 them all. By this time He Yi and his remaining sub-officer, Zhang Yan, should
 be conveniently pushing down the western side of the castle. Go kill Zhang
 Yan and then kill He Yi. Ignore Zhang Bao and Deng Mao for now; head straight
 for Zhang Man Cheng as he seems to be the first one to die to your allies.
 Quickly get to him and kill him before anyone else can. Now go kill Deng Mao
 and then finally Zhang Bao. The valuable item will appear inside Zhang Jiao's
 castle near the altar.

 Difficulty: 1.5/5 - I actually bumped this up .5 in difficulty because it
 can actually be hard to kill everyone before your allies do (this stage is
 just THAT easy.) Zhang Man Cheng usually gets torn up by Sun Jian, so I really
 suggest you have Red Hare so you can get around as fast as possible.

 Stage: The Trials of Sun Ce (Sun Ce's forces)

 Requirement: Defeat the last set of phantom Yu Ji's (the ones that appear
 after Sun Jian and Da Qiao are defeated) within 5 minutes

 Strategy: **NOTE** Originally I thought in order to get this weapon, you had
 to defeat all of the phantom Yu Ji's within 10 minutes. After an email from
 Daryl Engel who stated that he got the weapon after 10 minutes, and some
 additional testing, I found out that you can indeed get the weapon after 10
 minutes. It seems that, however, you must kill the last set of phantom Yu
 Ji's within 5 minutes of their appearance in order to get the weapon. If
 this _still_ isn't correct, or someone finds out otherwise, please email me.

 This weapon is very annoying to get. Once you start kill the Yu Ji
 that is directly in front of you. Now four phantom Yu Ji's will appear.
 Quickly go and kill three of them. The last one will disappear. Now another
 Yu Ji will appear, this time with a phantom army around him. Go start
 attacking the phantom Yu Ji, and he will disappear before you can kill him.
 Another fake Yu Ji will appear, and will disappear again once you start
 attacking him. Now another fake Yu Ji will appear to the north, and again
 will disappear while you're attacking him. Good god this is annoying. Yet
 another fake Yu Ji appears, except this one you can actually kill. Once he's
 killed the phantom army will disappear. Now Yu Ji will cause Sun Ce's army
 to turn against him, and soldiers will start pouring in from all directions.
 You need to quickly defeat 50 soldiers. Once that is done four more phantom
 Yu Ji's will appear. Go kill three of them. Now Yu Ji will cause a fake
 Sun Jian and Da Qiao to appear. Quickly go kill them both. Now four more
 phantom Yu Ji's appear. They will all start to swarm you. Once two of them
 are defeated Yu Ji will make the rest of the phantoms stronger. Once you've
 killed two more of these buffed up Yu Ji's the real Yu Ji will appear to the
 south, and the remaining phantom Yu Ji's will become even stronger! They will
 all be in hyper mode now... see why this is so annoying? Quickly finish the
 rest of them off, and use any musou rage tokens that you have (hopefully you
 have one. You pretty much NEED one, actually.) This is easier said than done,
 however, because these Yu Ji's just love to stand around freezing you. I wish
 you the best of luck at this, because you'll need it. Hopefully you can get
 an attack x2 drop as well to help you out. As long as you kill all of the
 fake Yu Ji's within ten minutes the valuable item will appear in the north
 west corner of the map. Go get it and then kill the real Yu Ji to put an end
 to this nightmare.

 Difficulty: 4.5/5 - I originally had this at 5/5 with (what I thought was) the
 original requirements. However since finding out that that was incorrect and
 finding what I believe to be the correct requirement, I bumped the difficulty
 down a bit. It's still very difficult, since killing a bunch of hyper mode,
 buffed up Yu Ji's in 5 minutes isn't too easy - but I don't think it's as hard
 as I originally thought.

 Stage: Battle of Xia Kou (Sun Quan's forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Cai Mao and Gan Ning before Ling Tong is defeated

 Strategy: This is pretty easy. Go forward from your starting point and make
 your way to Cai Mao. Gan Ning should appear around the time you get to the
 central area, and will kill Ling Cao. Ignore Cai Mao for now and head over
 to Gan Ning. He will have rushed Ling Tong, so make sure you kill him first.
 Gan Ning will be in hyper mode, and will get a speed x2 and attack x2 bonus
 once his health gets low enough. He will also go into musou rage mode. Once
 Gan Ning is dead go kill Cai Mao, who is much easier to kill. The valuable
 item will appear right to the north of where Cai Mao was.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Gan Ning is a little difficult, but other than that this
 stage is a breeze.

 Stage: Battle of Jing Province (Sun Jian's forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Cai Mao and Lu Gong before Sun Jian is ambushed

 Strategy: This is pretty easy, but you still have to work somewhat fast, as
 Sun Jian gets ambushed pretty early on in the battle. I suggest you have Red
 Hare equipped. Go forth and find Cai Mao in front of the first gate. Kill him
 to open it. Go inside the first gate and head to the right to find Lu Gong
 against the eastern wall. Quickly go and kill him. The valuable item will
 appear inside the next area of the castle, through the next gate.

 Difficulty: 1/5 - Very easy, as this is just a one star stage and you just
 have to defeat two really weak officers. I guess the somewhat strict time
 limit is supposed to make this difficult, but it doesn't.

 Stage: Battle of Yi Ling (Wu forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Zhao Yun before the fire attack and then ensure that the
 fire attack is a success

 Strategy: Zhao Yun is all the way on the other side of the map, but you have
 plenty of time to reach him and kill him. Just head south and then go through
 Shu's main camp to reach Zhao Yun on the other side of the map. Once Zhao
 Yun is dead head back to Shu's main camp and start clearing out the area of
 soldiers and officers to make the next part easy. You have to wait anyway
 for the bridgelayer to get set up, so you might as well do something
 productive. Kill all of the officers around the area: Yan Yan, Liao Hua, Li
 Yan and Ma Chao. Once the bridgelayer has been activated drop whatever you're
 doing and head over to it. Follow Zhu Ran and keep him safe while he makes
 his way to his destination. Once Zhu Ran arrives at the fire attack site the
 fire attack will be a success. Your valuable item will appear in the south
 eastern corner of the stone sentinel maze. The most annoying thing here is
 trying to find the weapon, since your minimap disappears once you enter the
 maze. However you can use the battlelog to guide you there, as it shows you
 where about it is on the map. So just do that if you get lost.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Pretty easy, even though it's a higher difficulty map.
 Zhou Tai is a beast, so he shouldn't have much of a problem sailing through
 this battle.

 Stage: Battle of He Fei (Wu forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Zhang Liao four times

 Strategy: At the start of the battle just go around defeating officers,
 soldiers, and taking enemy bases and checkpoints. Eventually after a little
 bit of fighting Zhang Liao will ambush Sun Quan and destroy the one southern
 bridge. Head back to Sun Quan and kill Zhang Liao. He will be in hyper mode
 and will get an attack x2 bonus. After you defeat him he will temporarily
 withdraw. Now continue going around killing some more officers and soldiers.
 I suggest you clear out the southern area where Xu Huang has arrived. After
 some more time passes Zhang Liao will appear again, this time up at the
 northern checkpoint in the center of the map. He's still in hyper mode, and
 will retain his attack x2 bonus. Kill him for the second time, only to have
 him withdraw again. Now head down to the southwestern part of the map, where
 Xu Huang appeared. Might as well kill any enemy forces you run into along the
 way (Xiahou Dun and Cao Zhen appear as reinforcements in the north shortly
 after Zhang Liao appears for the second time, so it's a wise decision to kill
 them as they'll head for your main camp.) Wait down at the southwestern
 corner until Zhang Liao shows up there for the third time. Again, he is in
 hyper mode with his attack x2 bonus. Kill him for the third time and he will
 yet again withdraw. Now head up towards the enemy main camp. Zhang Liao will
 appear one last time to the east of the castle, no doubt in hyper mode with
 attack x2. Kill him this one last time to get your weapon. The valuable item
 will appear on top of the castle wall on the southeastern side.

 Difficulty: 3/5 - This isn't too bad since Ling Tong is a pretty tough
 character, but Zhang Liao can be a pain, especially since he is in hyper mode
 each time and has an attack x2 bonus. Make sure Ling Tong is pretty buffed
 up before attempting this.

 Stage: Battle of Xia Pi (Lu Bu's forces)

 Requirement: Defeat all officers and sub-officers before Cao Cao arrives and
 without Hou Cheng being defeated

 Strategy: Head south to run into the first officer, Zhang Fei, and defeat
 him. Hou Cheng will be crying for help by now, but just ignore him, he should
 be able to hold out for a little longer. Head west to run into Guan Yu; kill
 him once you do. Now quickly head over and kill Liu Bei. If it looks like
 Hou Cheng is really struggling and might be defeated, head up to rescue him
 first. But I was always able to kill Liu Bei without worrying about Hou Cheng
 dying. Once Liu Bei is defeated immediately head north to find Xiahou Yuan
 and Li Dian beating up on Hou Cheng. Kill Li Dian first, then Xiahou Yuan.
 Next head up north and kill Yu Jin before he kills Song Xian (although if he
 does kill Song Xian, it doesn't matter, you'll still get the weapon. You just
 can't let Hou Cheng be defeated.) Then head south and defeat Xiahou Dun. This
 will cause Cao Cao to appear, and it will also cause your weapon to appear.
 The valuable item will be down in the southern area, a little to the north of
 the enemy base.

 Difficulty: 3.5/5 - Diao Chan is pretty bad, so that bumps up the difficulty.
 None of the officers are super hard to kill, but you do have to be pretty
 quick if you want to save Hou Cheng.

 Stage: Battle of Chang Shan (Yuan Shao's forces)

 Requirement: Kill 1000 enemy soldiers

 Strategy: This is pretty straightforward and easy, you just need to kill 1000
 people. Make sure you don't seal any checkpoints. In fact what you want to
 do is sit far enough away from the checkpoints that you're just out of the
 range of the guard captains. As long as they don't come running out to you
 to fight you, the enemies will keep pouring out of the checkpoints. If you're
 having extra trouble getting enough enemies you can go into the castle and
 just stay in the central area, and don't go near the checkpoints. If you're
 worried about your allies taking checkpoints for you, at the start of the
 battle instead of heading to the summit go down the path in the center towards
 the main gate. Lu Bu will be disobeying orders, and Yuan Shao won't send
 anyone out to help you. So now you can go around killing enemies at your own
 pace.

 Difficulty: 1/5 - First of all, it's Lu Bu, this isn't going to be hard for
 him. Second of all, this is mostly just time consuming.

 Stage: Battle of Liang Province (Dong Zhuo's forces)

 Requirement: Take all five bases and defeat Ma Chao and Pang De

 Strategy: Seems simple enough. From the start of the battle make your way out
 and start taking down each of the bases. Taking the two corner bases will
 also cut off enemy reinforcements, which is a plus. Once all of the bases are
 taken lets go kill Ma Chao. He's in hyper mode, but he doesn't get any stat
 bonuses or go into musou rage, so he isn't too bad. After he's dead let's go
 kill Pang De. Pang De is also in hyper mode, but like Ma Chao gets no stat
 bonuses or anything. Once Pang De is dead the valuable item will appear in
 the middle of the southwestern section of the map.

 Difficulty: 2/5 - Ma Chao and Pang De can take quite a beating since they're
 in hyper mode, but since they get no added stat bonuses and both do not go
 into musou rage, it makes the stage much easier. Plus Dong Zhuo ain't half
 bad.

 Stage: Battle of Guan Du (Yuan Shao's forces)

 Requirement: Have Cao Cao's soldiers open Guan Du's east and west gates
 with both Yan Liang and Wen Chou still alive

 Strategy: Yan Liang and Wen Chou will both be killed by Guan Yu if you don't
 kill him first, and all he really has to do is meet up with them to kill them.
 So right off the start of the battle, rush Guan Yu and kill him. Now you need
 to get Cao Cao's soldiers to open the two side gates to Guan Du castle for
 you. To do this you need to lower enemy morale by a lot. The easiest way to
 do this is to just go around killing officers and taking bases. Might as well
 go kill Liu Yan and Cao Hong, who will be right next to where you killed Guan
 Yu. Then go kill the rest of the officers and take the rest of the bases
 surrounding Guan Du. Once Cao Cao's morale is low enough the soldiers will
 open the two side gates. The valuable item will then appear on the northeast
 section of the castle wall.

 Difficulty: 1/5 - Nothing hard about this one, it's a one star stage and Yuan
 Shao is a hard hitter.

 Stage: The Yellow Turban Rebellion (Yellow Turbans)

 Requirement: Brainwash both Cao Cao and Sun Jian's army as well as allow
 Zhang Man Cheng's rock attack to be successful, all without any allied
 officers or sub-officers dying

 Strategy: Ok this weapon is VERY hard to get, if you haven't figured that out
 by now. Now it doesn't matter if you brainwash the enemies first or if you
 allow the rock attack to succeed first, but the ONLY way I've ever been able
 to get this weapon is to do the rock attack first, and I'll explain why later.
 So right from your starting position go forward until you run into Gongsun
 Yue and kill him. Killing Gongsun Yue will allow the rock attack to be
 successful, but it takes a minute or so until after you've killed him for
 the attack to actually begin. So go kill Gongsun Yue and then head directly
 down to Zhang Bao. Now what we're going to do is brainwash Cao Cao's army.
 Get onto the altar with Zhang Bao and stay there. After a minute or so Cao
 Cao's army will defect to your side. Once that's done head down to Zhang
 Liang. Now lets brainwash Sun Jian's army. Do the same thing, get on the altar
 with Zhang Liang and stay there for a minute or so. As long as no one has
 died, the valuable item will appear on the altar where Zhang Bao is. Now for
 the really tough part: finishing the damn battle. Zhang Jiao is horribly bad,
 and your allies will probably start to get slaughtered. Not to mention the
 fact that Dong Zhuo's unit will arrive with even more enemies once you enter
 the main enemy camp, and then in order to finish the battle you have to kill
 everyone. Good luck with the rest of the battle, because you'll need it. Oh
 and the reason I say to do the rock attack first is because it takes a minute
 or so after Gongsun Yue is dead for the rock attack to actually begin.
 Whenever I did the brainwashing part first, I would then go and kill Gongsun
 Yue and wait for the rock attack to begin. However one of my allies would
 ALWAYS die before the rock attack would start. Therefore I find it's best to
 do the rock attack first, because then you can move on to begin the
 brainwashing part while you also wait for the rock attack to succeed.

 Difficulty: 5/5 - This one is a runner up with 'toughest fourth weapon in the
 game', along with Cao Pi's. Zhang Jiao is a very bad character, and this is
 a five star difficulty stage for the Yellow Turbans. Plus the requirements
 are very strict, and sometimes it's just plain luck if your allies can survive
 or not. You'll need a really buffed up Zhang Jiao, and expect to have to
 give multiple attempts for this one, as it's not easy. Oh and if you're
 thinking of trying to cheat the difficulty setting by doing this on Zhang
 Jiao's musou, think again; this is his five star stage in his musou as well.

  `------------------------------------------------------------------------´

 KING OF BEASTS
  - Power:       36
  - Attacks:     6 (+Evolution)
  - Weight:      Light
  - Attributes:  Charge +15
                 Horse +15
                 Life +19
                 Fill +15
                 Atk +18

 Stage: Conquest of Nan Zhong (Nanman forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Huang Zhong, Wei Yan, and Yue Ying without any of your
 allies defecting

 Strategy: Wei Yan is directly in front of you at the start of the battle, so
 go kill him first. Then move up to where Wu Tugu is and defeat Wang Ping
 and Zhang Yi. Eventually the Shu army will start to run away, and Wu Tugu
 will chase them. Once Wu Tugu enters the open area, a bunch of exploding pots
 will appear along with four task leaders. Kill the four task leaders to
 prevent Dong Tu Na from defecting. Now head east over to the poison swamp
 and kill Huang Zhong. After that's done head north and head straight for Yue
 Ying and kill her. The valuable item will appear down in the southern most
 hidden path, connecting the poison swamp with the area with the exploding
 pots.

 Difficulty: 3/5 - This one can be a little difficult since you got a lot of
 people to kill and they aren't exactly weak. The northern area can especially
 get a little hairy, with all of the officers running around as well as Yue
 Ying's juggernauts.

  `------------------------------------------------------------------------´

 INFERNO
  - Power:       34
  - Attacks:     6 (+Evolution)
  - Weight:      Medium
  - Attributes:  Charge +16
                 Bow +15
                 Musou +18
                 Fill +17
                 Def +15

 Stage: The Invasion of Nan Zhong (Nanman forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Gan Ning and Jiang Qin without the bridge being destroyed

 Strategy: This weapon is easy to get, but takes a long time. At the start of
 the battle go down to your right and clear out the enemies down there: take
 the base and defeat Zhu Huan. After that head back up to the middle area and
 clear it of enemies. Take down the base, secure the checkpoint, and defeat
 Xu Sheng, Zhou Tai, Zhu Ran and Lu Xun. Be careful with Lu Xun though, don't
 get too close to the bridge. Meng Huo will tell you to "take care of it",
 and if you get too close to the bridge you'll knock it down, which will
 prevent you from getting the weapon. Now you have to wait for King Mulu to
 get frustrated and attack without the bridge being destroyed. It takes about
 17 minutes for this to happen. Yes, I said 17 minutes. So let's go clear out
 the left side of enemies: go kill Sun Shang Xiang and take out the enemy
 base. You'll probably still have ten minutes left after this is all done, so
 go do your taxes or something. Eventually after a long wait King Mulu will
 get impatient and begin moving towards the enemy camp. Shortly after that
 Gan Ning and Jiang Qin will show up as reinforcements over on the left hand
 side of the map. Go and kill them both. The valuable item will appear right
 by the bridge, on the other side of the Wu camp.

 Difficulty: 1.5/5 - Not difficult at all. If anything it's the waiting that's
 difficult.

 TRUMP DECK

                 Fill +20
                 Def +15

 Stage: Battle of Hu Lao Gate (Allied forces)

 Requirement: Defeat Lu Bu

 Strategy: This isn't as tough as it might sound. For one there is no time
 limit, unlike Sun Jian's weapon. Secondly Zou Ci is a beast, and shouldn't
 have much of a problem with defeating Lu Bu. Like I said about Sun Jian's
 fourth, Lu Bu isn't nearly as tough in DW5 as he was in previous DW games.
 Now I do believe that the Lu Bu on Hu Lao Gate is tougher then all of the
 other levels that he appears on in this game, but killing him is still very
 do-able. Especially with Zuo Ci. If you're having trouble bring a bodyguard,
 just make sure you land the killing blow. You can also bring all of your
 allies together to help distract him at the gate, but again, just make sure
 you're the one landing the final blow. Lu Bu is of course in hyper mode,
 and will get an attack x2 bonus as well as regain some health once a bit of
 it is knocked away. He will also go into musou rage, at which point you need
 to just completely avoid him as he will very quickly kill you no matter how
 strong you are. Once he's dead the valuable item will appear on top of Hu
 Lao Gate's front wall, over to the right.

 Difficulty: 2.5/5 - Lu Bu is probably his strongest in this level, but it
 still pales in comparison to how strong he was in the previous games. A buffed
 up Zuo Ci shouldn't have much trouble making quick work of Lu Bu.

There's a few odds and ends that I don't believe really fit into any other
section so I just made this section and threw them all in here. This is mostly
just additional information about the game and a few of its extras.

OFFICER DROP LIST                                                        [DROP]
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

This is a comprehensive drop list of all items dropped by officers on every
level and every difficulty. These lists should be accurate, but please email
me if you find any mistakes. One thing I will have to admit is that, while
making this list, I only played through about half of the maps on chaos mode.
The reason being is because after a few maps I noticed that, while the drops
might change between easy, normal, and hard, the drops for chaos were always
the same as the drops on hard. After playing through half of the maps and
having this be the case every time, I'm assuming the drops for hard and chaos
difficulty are the same for all maps. But of course, I cannot verify this
completely. So if you happen to find out this is not true, please email me,
and I suppose I'll have to go through the arduous task of going through every
map on chaos mode.

There are a few possible things enemy officers will drop after they're
defeated; they are the following:

  - Atk: Sword, increases characters attack stat (+1, +2, +4, +8)
  - Def: Shield, increases characters defense stat (+1, +2, +4, +8)
  - Life: Dim Sum, increases characters max health (+10, +20)
  - Weapon: One weapon for the character
  - Item: One random item (non-rare)

For officers that don't drop anything (mainly commanders) I simply put "N/A"
down. Sub-officers are indented several spaces below their main officer. Also
I should note that these are the default drops, there are no combos being used
when I'm killing any officers. Obviously using a large combo will affect some
of these drops. The battles are listed in the order that they're listed on the
free mode menu. So with all that being said, on with the list:

 --NOTES--

 * The fake Jiang Wei appears outside Tian Shui castle later on in the battle
   as long as Ma Zun is still inside.

 ** Gao Xiang will show up if Ma Zun tries to retreat from Tian Shui castle.

 *** Xiahou Mao will be released back into Tian Shui castle as long as he is
     captured (defeated) before Jiang Wei.

 **** These three units will show up as reinforcements as long as Jiang Wei is
      defeated before he tries to return to Tian Shui castle. They will arrive
      in the order listed: first Cao Zhen, then Cao Ren, and finally Zhang He.
      If Jiang Wei attempts to return to Tian Shui castle before he is
      defeated, Ma Zun will attempt to escape instead of calling for
      reinforcements.

CHAOS                                                                    [CHAO]
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Chaos is a new difficulty setting to the Dynasty Warriors games. It is not
available from the start - you must clear Lu Bu's musou mode to unlock it.
The name "chaos" is the proper way to describe it, too. This difficulty setting
is much, much harder then even "Hard". You have to be very familiar with the
game when playing on chaos, not to mention whatever character you're bringing
better be maxed out and you better have mastered their play style.

Chaos is so difficult due to the fact that your character will die in just
several hits. Peons now post as much of a threat as an officer did in hard
mode, perhaps even more of a threat. Officers now have their defense doubled
and their attack quadrupled compared to their hard mode status. This means a
very quick death for you. Chaos mode is very unforgiving, and there is little
room for error. To make matters worse, health-restoring items are tough to
come by, and if you do manage to find one don't expect anything more than a
simple +50 meat bun.

So what's the point of all this madness? After all, the stat boosting items
dropped in chaos are the same value as those dropped in hard. So what reward
do you get for playing chaos? Well other than bragging rights, nothing really.
Chaos mode is simply there for an additional challenge, something to attempt
when you feel you've really mastered the game. Let's face it, most characters
when maxed out can take on any battle in hard difficulty with little problem.
But if you're going to tackle chaos difficulty with them, you need to readjust
your strategy completely.

I highly suggest taking a bodyguard with you that has the ability to heal you,
as well as equipping the Tribal Remedy. These two factors will help make up for
the fact that you'll be finding only several meat buns max, and may in many
occasions end up saving your life. Don't bother going into chaos with a
character whose fourth weapon you don't have; musou rage will be your saving
grace. It is also this reason that I suggest equipping the Demon Band - when in
musou rage your attack and defense are doubled, and the Demon Band will double
to amount of time you remain in musou rage. You'll need doubled attack and
defense for as long as you can get, so this item is vital to surviving chaos.

If you want a much more in-depth (and better) explanation of chaos mode and
strategies for playing it, I suggest you take a look at calbee219's "Chaos Mode
Guide". It's very informative and has much more information on the subject than
you'll find here. So if you're serious about taking on chaos then I suggest
you check out that guide.

CHALLENGE MODE                                                           [CHAL]
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Challenge mode is sort of like an arcade mode for DW5, where you just go around
fulfilling a certain objective and then you get put on a 'High Scores' board
to show off how well you did... even though you're putting much just competing
with yourself. I never really paid much attention to this part of the game as
this type of thing doesn't interest me, but I suppose it's fun for some.
Personally I don't really see the point. There's several different types of
things you can do in challenge mode, and I've listed them below:

 o  RAMPAGE
    - Defeat as many enemies as possible in the time given

      Default: Zhen Ji, 1000 kills

 o  SUDDEN DEATH
    - Defeat as many enemies as possible before being hit

      Default: Huang Zhong, 300 kills

 o  BRIDGE MELEE
    - Knock off as many enemies as possible in the time given

      Default: Zhuge Liang, 100 kills

 o  TIME ATTACK
    - Defeat 100 enemies as fast as possible

      Default: Zhao Yun, 3' 30" 00

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Q: How come I can't get "X" orb!?
A: You need to make sure you're playing on hard or chaos difficulty in order
   to get the orbs.

Q: Can you really not do the 2 player trick to get fourth weapons in this game?
A: Well to be honest I'm not 100% sure. I've heard that you can, I've heard
   that you can't, and I've heard that it only works for some weapons. So I'm
   not sure which to believe, and I've personally never tried to do it myself.
   If someone could clarify this for me, that would be nice.

Q: How much of this game is based off of actual history?
A: Well technically this game is mostly based off the book "Romance of the
   Three Kingdoms", a novel written by Luo Guanzhong in the 14th century. That
   book is based off of the Three Kingdoms era of Chinese history. However a
   lot of the events in the book are either exaggerated or fabricated. But
   still, many events in the game do seem to have some historical truth to
   them.

Q: What do you mean when you refer to a character as being in "hyper" mode?
A: "Hyper" mode is when the character has lightning surrounding them, as well
   as some type of "aura." This means they'll have doubled attack and defense,
   and a lot of the times they'll get some type of stat boosting bonus after
   a certain amount of their health is knocked down. Most of these officers
   also have the ability of going into musou rage mode. I remember when I first
   started playing this game I saw a lot of people, as well as guides, refer
   to this as "hyper" mode, so I just started calling it that myself.

Q: Who are the new characters in this game?
A: Guan Ping, Xing Cai, Cao Pi, Pang De, Ling Tong and Zuo Ci.

Q: Are you going to write a guide for any of the other Dynasty Warriors games?
A: Maybe. The only other Dynasty Warriors games I own are DW3, DW3:XL, DW4
   and DW5:Empires. Honestly I'm _REALLY_ Dynasty Warrior'd out after writing
   this guide, and I'll probably never be able to even play DW5 again. But
   maybe sometime in the future (*FAR* future) I might do a guide for DW4 or
   DW3. Maybe...

Q: How much time have you spent playing this game?
A: I don't even want to know...

Q: How do you do the internal time trick to get S/S bodyguards?
A: I have no idea, I've never experimented with this method. There's an
   in-depth FAQ written about it on GameFAQs, I suggest you take a look at
   that because I won't be able to help you.

Q: I own *insert gaming website address here*, can I host your guide?
A: No. GameFAQs is the only website that has hosting rights to this guide, no
   exceptions. See the "Legal Info" section of this guide for more information.

Almost all of the information you've seen in this guide was gotten by me via
countless hours of playing this game and testing certain things. I did get
some information about chaos mode from calbee219's "Chaos Mode Guide", which
I must thank. And I also got a few fourth weapon informations from EChang's
fourth weapons guide. This was mainly weapons that I had gotten back when I
first got the game, and upon loading it back up to do this FAQ I had forgotten
what needed to be done to get their weapon, so I had to look it up. Thanks also
go to Daryl Engel, who pointed out an error in Sun Ce's fourth weapon
requirement.

A lot of the specific names and dates from the history section was achieved
through research of the Three Kingdoms article on wikipedia (direct url is:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_kingdoms_era). Say what you want about
wikipedia, but I have found that it is a good summation of the Three Kingdoms
Era, and if you want an even more indepth and specific anaylsis, I suggest
you read the article in full.

With that being said, however, I'm sure there are many errors still in this
guide. If you see something that is incorrect or a valuable piece of
information that you see I'm missing, please send me an email and if I can
verify that whatever you've told me is true, I'll put it in this guide and I'll
give you credit.
