    2. Introduction:
    ------------------
    
    Hey! This is an FAQ about Zhu Rong! I have wrote a couple of FAQ's
    now so I should be getting the hang of it by now. But I'm sure
    that there are plenty of nice people out there who will tell me what
    I have done wrong. I will give credit to them for helping me.
    Well I think I have said enough ( technically typed but hey )
    so I hope you enjoy this FAQ and I hope that it helps you.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    3. Story:
    -----------
    
    Descending from above, the evil Serpent King Orochi shattered time
    and space to test his strength against the most courageous warriors from
    Ancient China and Feudal Japan. Great armies fell, yet many are still
    fighting for survival - and now the greatest showdown in history is
    about to take place... ( Taken from the back of the game case )

    5.a) Zhu Rong: Who is Zhu Rong?
    ---------------------------------
    
    That is a good question. Zhu Rong is the wife of the Nanman King,
    Meng Huo. Together they ruled over the Nanman Territory, now
    Zhu Rong returns in Warriors Orochi to help stop Orochi.
    Zhu Rong is a power type character.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    5.b) Zhu Rong: History
    ------------------------
    
    Madame Zhu Rong of Nan Zhong was the wife of Meng Huo,
    king of the Nanman tribes. She was a boisterous, spirited lady,
    adept at throwing knives, and claiming descent from the God of Fire,
    also named Zhu Rong.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    5.c) Zhu Rong: Overall story involvement
    -------------------------------------------
    
    Zhu Rong is trying to help Zhao Yun rescue Liu Bei and kill Orochi.
    Meng Huo is also by her side. There is not much to put here as she
    is not in that many stages and did not play much of a part in the game,
    other than being in the battle where you unlock Musashi Miyamoto.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    5.d) Zhu Rong: Changes
    -------------------------
    
    Zhu Rong is pretty much the same as she was in Dynasty Warriors 5.
    They have made some slight changes though...
    
    She cannot shoot arrows anymore.
    She has an R1 special now.
    They have made some slight changes to her charge attacks.

    5.f) Zhu Rong: How to unlock her
    -----------------------------------
    
    To unlock Zhu Rong, all you have to do is complete Shu
    Stage 4. After you have finished the battle, Zhu Rong will be
    unlocked, along side her husband Meng Huo.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    5.g) Zhu Rong: Why use her?
    -----------------------------
    
    This is a good question! Why should you use Zhu Rong?
    Because I said so... Not really. 
    Because she's very powerful, in Chaos mode her charges
    can get you out of tricky situations, her moves look good,
    she has the potential to become one of the best characters
    in the game, she also can build up her combos to kill even
    Lu Bu with minimal distraction on Chaos Mode!
    
    Just give her a try!
    
    *******************************************************************************
    5.h) Zhu Rong: Who works best in a team with her?
    ---------------------------------------------------
    
    Thats really a matter of opinion on who works best in a team with her...
    but if you build up Ranmaru, then he's good with her...
    Hideyoshi is great with his special move, she's not that quick
    but with his special, she is a lot quicker and can kill people more easily.
    Or you could just choose whoever works best for you... your favourite
    character, or your strongest character, it's entirely up to you!
    
    Oh on a side note... Hideyoshi is great with Zhu Rong, but I have to
    admit, his voice is very annoying so don't let that stop you from
    using him, although it nearly stopped me from using him.
    
    Here are some of the teams that I have used...
    
    Here you go:
    ---------------
    
    Team 1
    --------
    
    Zhu Rong, Kunoichi and Ranmaru Mori
    
    Kunoichi, if you have built her up can really help with her R1 special,
    especially on Chaos mode. Ranmaru is a great crowd clearer.
    His SSSTTT is a great crowd clearer if you have Agility 10.
    Read below to know how to use Zhu Rong.
    
    Team 2
    --------
    
    Zhu Rong, Meng Huo and Kunoichi
    
    To know how to use Kunoichi, read above, and come on, you can't
    really split up Zhu Rong and Meng Huo, okay, I lied, you can, but it's
    not right, you have to have at least one team with them both in, and
    mainly Meng Huo is there because his attacks can be quite powerful.
    Read below to know how to use Zhu Rong.
    
    Team 3
    --------
    
    Zhu Rong, Kunoichi and Hideyoshi
    
    To know how to use Kunoichi, read above. Hideyoshi is there mainly
    because of his special move, just use that to give Zhu Rong an edge
    and make her more powerful as I find most of her moves to be quite
    slow. This team is one of the best you can have with Zhu Rong.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    5.i) Zhu Rong: How to use her
    -------------------------------
    
    Zhu Rong is quite easy to use. All of her moves are relatively easy
    to pull off. Most of her moves are effective. Her TTTT move is effective
    if you want to start off a combo. Her ST is also another good move
    to get her started on a combo.
    
    Her SSTTT move is excellent. If you can get a combo started on them,
    and have Hideyoshi's speed buff on, you can easily kill someone with
    this move, of course it helps if you have air and fire on your weapon.
    
    Her SSST is effective too. It clears out the enemies around you if
    you are surrounded. Her SSSST and SSSSST are not the best moves.
    Although they can be effective, you're better off sticking with the first ones.
    
    Her SSSSSSSSS is a great move and really easy to do. This move
    is powerful, and at the end she does her SSST move. 
    
    *******************************************************************************

    *******************************************************************************
    5.k) Zhu Rong: How to unlock her Personal Item
    -------------------------------------------------
    
    Unlocking Zhu Rong's Personal Item is quite easy.
    First of all do the Shu Story.
    The battle is Jie Ting, Gaiden 5
    Oh you have to be Zhu Rong for all of this.
    Bear in mind you can get this item on any difficulty setting.
    
    Here is what you have to do...
    --------------------------------
    
    You have to do the following before the pincer attack is successful...
    
    Kill Sun Shang Xiang and kill 300 enemies. Then, when the
    pincer attack is successful, the Item will appear, run over and get it.
    This is a very easy Personal Item to get.
    
    The name of her Personal Item is Wings of the Fire God for those of
    you who were wondering.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    5.l) Zhu Rong: How to get a good 4th weapon
    ----------------------------------------------
    
    To get Zhu Rong a good 4th weapon do this...
    
    Get her to a level 80+
    Get her Personal Item
    Get her proficiency maxed
    Get a good 3rd weapon
    Now go to the Wu Story and go to Gaiden 4, Wan Castle. It doesn't
    matter who you have in your team as you should only need Zhu Rong
    for this battle. Okay. Done? Do this level on Chaos mode! Yes
    Chaos mode! There are 4 weapon boxes in this level. 3 in actual
    boxes and 1 off of Pang De. This level really isn't hard. You don't even
    have to make sure that the peasants survive.
    
    Now that you have got the 4th weapon, it's time to start using it! Make
    sure you have a lot of weapon fusion points. Because you are going to
    need them.
    
    Note:
    ---------
    
    This stage is great for getting everybody's 4th weapons. Just use
    Zhu Rong and get even the weakest character's 4th weapons!

    6. FAQ:
    ----------
    
    Okay here we go...
    Nobody really asks me questions about Zhu Rong...
    I have an idea, I'll make some up!
    
    Question: Which weapon do you use in your Recommended
    Weapon Attributes, 1 or 2?
    Answer: 1.
    
    Question: Which team do you use in your who works best in a
    team with her, 1, 2 or 3?
    Answer: All of them, but I use 3 the most.
    
    Question: What is Zhu Rong best at, Crowd Clearing, or General
    Defeating?
    Answer: Both, but mostly General Defeating. Since her SSTTT move
    is great as it keeps the enemies in just one place and is powerful.
    
    Question: Which one of Zhu Rong's outfits do you like better in
    this game, number 1 or 2?
    Answer: 1
    
    Question: Why does Zhu Rong wear them awful clothes, they are
    disgusting!
    Answer: I don't know? Go and ask the game producers, and I
    think they look cool. Plus, she did live in Nanman, they didn't
    exactly have the materials they needed to make the clothes now
    did they?
    
    Question: Hey you just asked me a question!
    Answer: It was a rhetorical question.
    
    Question: This FAQ is rubbish!
    Answer: Go and make your own then! And that wasn't even a
    question.
    
    There we go!
