All the achievements for this game are secret, because for whatever godforsaken
reason Koei decided to hide them (they've done it for other games too) I don't
know why, but if you don't want to know what they are, hit the back button.
But if you are here, that shouldn't bother you...

Most of the achievements for this game are simple, finish a stage with a
certain character.  Notice I said stage, not campaign.  You really only need to
win one battle, making this easy.  You'll have to do it 42 times since there
are 42 characters.  There are five achievements for finishing the 5 campaigns,
and one for finishing all of them. The final achievement is for getting all the
bonuses you can buy, I'll get more into that later.

Campaign Achievements
I'll cover the campaign ones first.  These are really basic, you just need to
finish the campaign.  The easiest way to do this is to pick one character,
power their weapon to level 10, and then beast mode through all the stages on
easy.  In the standard DW games (Dynasty Warriors 5, Dynasty warriors 6, pretty
much any game that does not have empires or xtreme legends on the end) beating
stages is simple.  Bum rush the commander and then slay him.  Done.  In
empires, though, it has the base system, which complicates things a tiny bit.

You'll need to create a line of bases between your main camp and the enemy main
camp, then you will need to kill enough troops to get the enemy commander to
come out, and then, obviously, you slay him.  It's a bit more trouble, but in
the end, it just takes a bit more time.  In order to burn through these as
easily as possible, before the battle starts you should use the map to plan a
route.  Obviously the path with the least bases will be fastest, and hence
ideal.  Depending on the difficulty, you may need to kill a few enemy officers
so they don't rush your main camp while you are off slaying, you should use the
map to check for this too.  The placement of the main camps are random, enemy
officers may already be at a base next to your main camp.  Unless you are
careful things will end very quickly.

Anyway, you'll need to pick an officer to power up.  I used Guan Yu, but it
really isn't that big of a deal.  You just need someone with range and some
power.  Range is important, range will help you clear bases quicker, get to the
main camp quicker, and beat the enemy commander quicker.  It also helps on
higher difficulties.  The farther you keep them away, the better chance you
don't get owned.  Phantom hand is a good upgrade, and flash would obviously be
good as well.

If you want to be really really stingy with your time, you should keep your eye
out for Musou warriors (what the game calls all the playable characters) and
recruit them when possible.  If you do this, you can beat a stage with them
while doing the campaign.  You'll be fighting battles to finish the campaigns
either way, might as well get other achievements along the way.  This will save
you a good chunk of time.

Basically, this is what your first playthrough will look like.
Pick a character.  If that character belongs to a ruler (Guan Yu is with Liu
Bei for example) pick Liu Bei, this gives you direct control over your
territory, where picking Guan Yu will put you in officer mode, which only gives
you indirect control.  Don't worry, you can still use whatever character you
pick, just make sure you put him in the player one slot when you go into

Take over China.
Attack territories, keep your troop count high, and power up your chosen
character's weapon as much as possible.  It's also important to get the life
attack/etc skills from the training menu that's in the purchase menu.  Life
helps you survive, attack helps you mow people down faster.  You'll be wanting
to buy red hare ASAP, as a fast horse will help you get base to base quicker.
If you are playing on easy/normal, there really is no reason not to attack on
every turn, unless your only attack options have more officers then you (if
they do, they get more troops and bases, making the battle a lot harder) or you
simply have no troops (your officers won't be able to defend your bases,
including the main camp).  On lower difficulties, the AI will not attack much,
making things go much quicker.

That's really all there is to it.  Add phantom hand and flash to your chosen
character's weapon if you need/want, and continue taking territories.  Once
you've taken over the whole of china, you can save the cleared game.  When you
reload it, you can use clear points to get certain bonuses.  You can get gold,
gems, or you can choose to keep your horses and weapons.  The latter two are
the important ones, they allow you to keep your chosen character's weapon and
red hare, which means you can beat the other four campaigns much faster, as you
won't have to rebuy everything.  You'll need to buy the life/attack/defense
skills again but weapons, horses, added effects to weapons all carry over if
you take the last two bonuses.

Character Achievements
These are really simple.  As covered in the above section, you can simply use
the characters while you do the campaigns and own two birds with one stone.  If
you choose not to do that or you have some left over here's what you do.

Choose hero of chaos, the 5th campaign.  Then pick your character, and pick
officer mode.  This places you in a random force, but whichever one you get
does not matter.  Just pick battle, then mercenary, then the second one, the
pirates mission.  This is simple.  The minimap will ping the three groups of
pirates.  All you need to do is kill 300 enemies, and then a general will
appear.  The pirates will have a bunch of peons with them, kill these.  The
enemies with life bars above the heads, (the ones named pirate) will respawn
with more peons if you kill them, so after you've killed most of the peons,
kill the pirates to refresh them.  After you've killed 300 peons, kill the 6
pirates the mini map pinged, and then a general will appear.  Own him.  It
sounds like a lot, but it takes 2-3 minutes tops.  Easy character achievements.
After you finish, save (you don't get achievements till you save) and then quit
out.  Rinse, lather, repeat.  Note that if you have a clear save you can use it
and then pick the keep horses bonus to use your horses, and you can do it for
every character. Just load from the clear file, save for the achievement in a
different slot, and repeat.

Bonuses Achievement
Alright, so this one is a bit of a pain.  Title screen, choose archives, then
go to get bonuses.  The first option, objectives, shows you the things you can
accomplish to get bonus points, and the last three options are the things you
spend bonus points on.  Once you have everything in backgrounds, voices, and
outfits, you get the achievement.  But there's a catch.  You need 90,000 points
to buy everything but if you add up the points you get for accomplishing all
the objectives...120,000 is what you get, so you do not need to do all of them!
This is key, as some of them are a pain.  Try to get 1000 KOs without getting
hit once.  Hah.  Here they are, along with some tips:

Finish a mercenary mission - 1000 points - Simple.  If you are an officer or a
vagrant, at the start of your turn choose battle, and then mercenary.  Choose a
mission and do it.

Finish an assigned mission - 1000 points - Same as above, except choose
assignment instead of mercenary.  You'll only have one if you are an officer,
and you don't always get one at the start of the game.  You may need to pass a
few turns before your ruler gives you one.

Finish an invasion - 1000 points - This can be done as a ruler.  You may
possibly be able to do it as an officer, since you can participate in your
ruler's invasions, but i have not tried myself.  ALl you need to do is pick a
territory and win the battle.

Successfully defend - 1000 points - Same as above, except you are getting
attacked.  Win the battle.  Easy.

Win a battle after defecting - 1000 points - Defect during the battle from the
menu as an officer, you can't do this as a ruler.  Then win the battle.

Win a battle after a successful surprise attack - 2000 points - To do a
surprise attack, press Left Trigger and Right Trigger while you are in a blue
area.  This starts a 20 second timer.  Get into an enemy base that IS NOT
CONNECTED to one of your bases before time ends and it will execute.  Then win.

Buy all skills - 2000 points - Easy.  Buy all skills from the training menu,
under the purchase option.

Weapon Level 10 - 2000 points - Level someone's weapon up to level 10.  Go to
the forge under the purchase menu and upgrade it there.

Own Red hare - 2000 points - Buy red hare.  Hard, I know.

Get married - 3000 points - This one is random.  Basically, a character of the
opposite sex asks you to marry them and you do it.  I think coming to that
character's aid in battle will effect your relationship with them and
eventually lead to them marrying you.  Just put someone of the opposite gender
on your team in battles and help them when they are near officers.  It should
happen eventually.

Swear an oath with an officer - 3000 points - Same as above, except a character
of the same sex.  Come to their aid in battle, and make sure to take them with
you in every battle.  I've never had a character propose oath/marriage unless
they were taken to battles.

Own 12 territories - 1000 points - Self explanatory.

Own 16 Territories - 2000 points - Same as above.

Own 20 territories - 3000 points - Above.

Own all territories - 4000 points - Above.

Becomes rivals with another officer - 2000 points - Can only happen in officer
mode.  Basically, raise your rank and suggest policies to your ruler.
Eventually someone will enter rage mode and get pissed at you.  Rivalry time!

People ask you to overthrow - 2000 points - Basically someone ASKS you to
overthrow their ruler.  This can only happen in officer and vagrant mode.  Note
it says ask, you don't have to do it.  Sit in a territory where an evil person
rules, like Dong Zhuo, and wait for them to ask you.

Sima Yi's plan - 2000 points - Basically just get Sima Yi in your army and
eventually he should suggest some plan.  Makes troop levels go up if I remember
right.  Taking him to battle may have something to do with it.

Zhuge Liang's plan - 2000 points - Same as above.

Lu Meng returns from training - 2000 points - Same as above, just have Lu Meng
in your army, however what happens is a bit different.  He will say he's going
off to train, and his troop level will drop to 1.  3 months later he returns.

Get Imperial Seal - 2000 points - This appears to be random.  One month some
dude will find it in a well.  Yeah, the imperial fricking seal, in a well.

Take the throne - 4000 points - I assume this can only happen if you refuse to
help the emperor when his envoy asks for money, but I could be wrong.  The
actual event is random, one of your officers will tell you to take it.  You
then press yes.  Done!

Finish an invasion with no musou - 2000 points - Really easy.

2000 KOs - 2000 points - Run to the enemy main camp at the start of battle.
Yes, it's not connected to your main camp, meaning you can't take it.  Which
means troops will continue to spawn forever and everz.  Rack up the 2k, and
then finish the stage. Make sure your officers don't get owned while you are
doing it though.

1000 KOs on horseback - 3000 points - It seems harder to get horse KOs in this
game then previous games, but just hold the block button so you can strafe, and
own peons with X.  Might want to use the main camp trick in the 2k KOs bonus

Invasion in under 8 minutes - 3000 points - Just bum rush the main camp.  Take
bases up to the main camp ignoring officers and take it quick.  Really easy.

Less then 100 KOs and allies kill enemy commander - 4000 points - Now the
objectives are starting to get stupid.  Basically just kill the officers and no
peons, and let your officers take bases/kill stuff.  If you can, weaken the
enemy commander so your allies will kill him quicker.  Also, if you get close
enough to him you can see him on the screen he will die to your allies faster
then if you just run off and wait.

Invasion alone on master or chaos difficulty - 5000 points - Hah ok.  Start a
game from a cleared save and keep weapons/horses.  Then pray.  Protect your
bases, kill officers when you can, and then take the camp.  Don't get in a
rush, take your time, and you can win.

Win a battle with no damage - 5000 points - Sigh.  So yeah, one hit and you
don't get this one.  Pretty fucking ridiculous.  You can depend on your
officers to finish this, and if you do it early and recruit enough officers to
have 8 before your enemies have 8, you can actually do this fairly easily.
Just use the orders menu to command your officers and you can win the battle
without attacking.

1000 KOs no damage - 6000 points - Screw you Koei.  This one is even worse.  I
used SSX and her bow to do this.  It takes patience.  Every time someone gets
close, retreat, and keep spamming the bow.  Watch the mini map so you can see
if someone comes up behind you.

You get 9000 points for finishing each of the campaigns, meaning you get 45,000
just for finishing the campaigns you were already going to for the
achievements!  Pick and choose from the other objectives to get your other
45,000 points and then you are finished here.  Saving is required as always,
but when you exit out it asks you to save, you can't possibly forget.

And there you have it.  Hope this helps some people, that's the point, after
all.  Took me about 17 hours to get them all, but I didn't speed run the first
campaign, so you could probably get it in less then 15.  Good for achievement
whoring, if you ask me.
