It brings back all the old songs and recent ones that we all have enjoyed. All the songs are set to play at certain times and stages, like when your one mission away from conquering all of China you MIGHT (Sometimes you don't) get a special fanfare-like song on the PREPARATION section, or when your help dispose of bandits in the volenteer forces. So far I got some locations. ______________________________________________________________ | Location | Song Track Number | -------------------------------------------------------------- Ba District Needs more testing Chang An Needs more testing Chang Shan Needs more testing Cheng Du Needs more testing Guang Han Needs more testing Han Zhong Needs more testing Hui Ji Needs more testing Jiang Xia Track:17 Ji Province Needs more testing Jing Province Needs more testing Ju Li Needs more testing Liang Province Needs more testing Luo Yang Needs more testing Nan Zhong Needs more testing Tian Shui Needs more testing Xi Liang Needs more testing Xin Castle Track:15 Xu Chang Needs more testing Yan Province Needs more testing Yong Chang Needs more testing -------------------------------------------------------------- SPECIAL MUSIC Bandits versus Volunteer Forces- Track:49, "The Wall of Fate"(DW3) Unification Battle- Track:57, Wu Zhang - Wei "Gravity"(DW3) *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* IV - Preparation [PRPN] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* You will make preparations when beginning Xtreme Mode after you clear a stage. Here is what you can do here. 1.DESTINATION - Proceed to select the next stage. a. You choose from 3 destinations: b. The names in blue are your allies; ones in red are your enemies, your home (Places you have conquered) will be represented with a flag, an important battle (defending/attacking kingdom) is shown by crossed swords. c. A picture of the place your going will be shown d. Rate is highlighted in yellow. Rate is the points earned during a stage are traded for gold after completing the stage. The higher the Rate is, the higher the difficulty and the more gold you will receive upon completion. 2.SWITCH OFFICERS - You may select or change allies to take with you. Reserved ones are healed slightly. 3.INVENTORY - Confirm what weapons and items you currently have. 4.INTERIM SAVE - Save the game, you can continue again another time. 5.EXIT - Ends the game and displays the Rankings. 6.SIZE - Size is the size of your country.

To max it you must have 100% 8.QUIT 2P - (This will only appear if a 2nd player is with you). Player 2 exits the game. *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* V - Missions/Stages (Destination) UPDATED 7/19/07 [MIST] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* Here is a list of stages that you will encounter. More than one mission can be at one area.Some events may not be noted in the briefing. For example, a mission briefing that only says there are a number of people wishing to join you might have other surprises. There could be a letter delivery or a general will be patrolling in the stage. So don't assume a stage will be easy. As you can see this is FAR from being completed. The MAX that the game will record is 999, which can be achieved by passing 1000 missions. "***" indicates a special stage. =========================================================================== 1." Rumour has it that somebody here has the ____." A regular general on the stage will give you an item after you have done something for them like delivering a letter, assist a fire attack, steal from a base, etc. Another way is for a generic general who tells you about a monster/mysterious unit you must slay. =========================================================================== 2." A huge army has gathered and the area is in a state of chaos." Nothing speical here. All generic generals. Just a bunch of generic enemies to plow through. =========================================================================== 3." The area has been invaded by numerous armies. There is continual fighting" Your side has generic generals (could have a general, but this is for the majority) while the enemy has a commander that is a playable character. He/She will have 1 sub general. =========================================================================== 4." We have received word that a large, unknown weapon has been sighted in the area." There will be elephants/juggernauts in the stage. =========================================================================== 5." It appears that ____ is planning a large scale attack in the area." Someone will ask you to aid him or her in setting a fire attack on a base. Once you get there, you will be ambushed. Once you take out the main officer outside the base a fire shall kill everyone else in and out of the base soon afterwards. There are 10 pots inside with stat boosters as well as the burned up general inside's drop. =========================================================================== 6." ____ has taken to the field in order to suppress the uprising area." A general ally of yours will be in the fight and will be ambushed. The general might join you. =========================================================================== 7." They say that someone is planning to raid a small and wealthy village in the area." You are the defender of a village. Someone will attack the village and an ally will appear and ask for your aid to defend the village. =========================================================================== 8." They say that there is a small but wealthy village in the area." In this stage you are the attacker of the village. An evil general will ask you to aid him in looting the village. A general will aid the village and attack you. Once you defeat them, they will join you or be held for ransom. =========================================================================== 9." A number of people are looking for someone to join." In the Shop lots of generals will be available for you to buy. They will fill up your battle party first then the reserve part. =========================================================================== 10." ____ is patrolling the area." An enemy officer will follow you on a stage. When you defeat them, they will be captured and will either join you or be held for ransom. =========================================================================== 11." A veteran warrior, ____ is in the area looking for someone to face in battle." A playable character will track you down during the stage and attack you until you defeat them. =========================================================================== 12." Rumors have it that bandits have brought strange animals into the area." Bandits have taken a tiger from either Sun Ce or Sun Jian. You must rescue the tiger by going to one of two spots that the tiger might be at. One area will be another general that will aid you on your tiger finding quest, and the other will be the tiger itself. A bandit chief and two bandit leaders will appear when you arrive. Defeat them and take the tiger to it's owner. The aiding general will leave. =========================================================================== 13." Zhang Jiao, the one with the strange abilities has been put in prison on the grounds of rebellion." Go to him and take out the enemies at one of the gates of the fortress he is held in. When you save him, he will heal your party. =========================================================================== 14." There is an exceptional craftsman at the blacksmith." A blacksmith will have orbs or evolution additions for your weapon. =========================================================================== 15." A merchant selling meat buns in the area was captured by bandits." He is being held hostage by bandits. Rescue him and he will heal your party. =========================================================================== 16." Rumors say there are bandits in the area kidnapping young women." There will be a female general and she will be alone. When you confront her, she will think your a bandit. You CAN attack her but DON'T. If you do, she will join you If you DON'T attack her and wait for a bit or walk away, a bandit leader will come and attack her. Aid her and you will gain her respect. You can now go and attack the bandit chief with her. =========================================================================== 17." ____ is with one of the bands roaming the area creating trouble." The general will have two subgenerals and is powered up. When you get near them a base will be revealed to you with another general gaurding it Defeat the general there and you have some free pots to smash open (10 of them). Now, this causes another general ,who is NEVER on the map, to "flee". Now the main general with the sub generals will lose their ability boost. Defeat him/her. They are now captured. =========================================================================== 18." A store there sells many items for improving your abilities." The store will have items for improving your abilities. Self explained. It means things like swords, shields, dim sums, and mystic pouches. =========================================================================== 19." A store seems to have a wide selection of goods."

The bandits of the area have joined together and taken control. Volunteer to campaign against bandits." In this battle you face off against banidits. A general will be ambushed and ask for your aid. Nothing else is exciting, just dispose of all the banidits. There will be an ambush and reinforcements. You will be awarded by the "emperor" an item for your deeds. =========================================================================== *** 24." The ruler of this kingdom was slain by ____ and the area is now in turmoil." (Wage a battle to win own kingdom.) This is your first step in conquering China.

When the leader of the enemy is injured, an enemy general will appear. =========================================================================== *** 25." ____ has built a strong fortress in preparation for invasion." (Invade a neighboring kingdom.) These are the next step in uniting China. There will be 2 generic officers on your side. 3 enemy reinforcements will appear. Bandits will come during the chaos.

A general will appear when you get near the gate surrounding leader of the opposition. =========================================================================== *** 26." The fierce ____ has invaded our land." (Defend your land from invasion.) Occasionally, other people will try to take your land. When this happens, the shops are cheaper.

Weakness: It weakens later on ================================================================= Dark Strength: Enemy has a chance of instant death. Very helpful Against invisible armies Weakness: Only units will die from this, NOT generals, drains your musou gauge after each instant death ================================================================= *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* VIII - Stage Events UPDATED 7/16/07 [STEV] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* During stages, there are events. Without them you don't get a lot of gold with just Rate. When you have fulfilled an objective given to you, you are rewarded. When you see say, Xiao Qiao as an ally, don't assume she is gonna help fight bandits. She could be patrolling or ambushed instead. Lots of these events can overlap each other.

Getting them in stages B. Getting it from Craftsman. To calculate, you should add up the iron you have received. When you exit a game you get bonus iron, this iron NEVER goes down. This will be the amount of iron you start the next game. Your bonus iron can go up. Say you had 2050 bonus iron when you started a new game. When you exited the game, still alive, you have 2740 bonus iron. If you exited the game without dying, you keep 10% of the iron you got. 1 Iron = 10 bonus iron 5 Iron = 50 bonus iron 10 Iron = 100 bonus iron 100 Iron = 1000 bonus iron If you exited the game and died, you keep 5% of the iron you received. 1 Iron = 5 bonus iron 5 Iron = 25 bonus iron 10 Iron = 50 bonus iron 100 Iron = 500 bonus iron So, since you lived. You found a total of 69 Iron throughout that game. *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* X - Craftsman/Doctor UPDATED 3/5/06 [CRDR] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* This section is to give an in-depth look at these two subjects. If you guard a craftsman through the battle, he'll make a facility for you, upgrading it by 1 level (out of 5) after each successful escort. All of them stack up. Here's the breakdown of the levels: Lvl 1: Default. Lvl 2: You receive 200 gold after clearing each mission. Lvl 3: You receive 200 iron points after clearing each mission. Lvl 4: You receive a unique horse saddle to use after every 5 missions cleared. Lvl 5(MAX): Your entire team (includes reserves) gets 25HP after every mission. A doctor can be seen in the PREPARATION section and heals your entire group. The amount right now isn't confirmed yet but every bit counts right? So far, it seems like mystics, strategists, and women are the only ones that can call them. Here is my confirmed list of who can call doctors. Zuo Ci, Zhang Jiao, Sima Yi, Zhuge Liang, Da Qiao, Xiao Qiao, Zhu Rong, Diao Chan, Yue Ying, Sun Shang Xiang, Xing Cai, Zhen Ji, Lu Xun, Xu Zhu, Zhang He. *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* XI - Silhouette 7/19/07 [SIHE] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* Silhouettes are seen on the PREPARATION screen after you have completed a mission occasionally. You can turn evil or good by how you do things. Like if you attack villages and capture girls, this gives you an evil trait. If you defend villages and aid other officers, you earn good traits. Traits affect your ranking, the type of generals that join you, the books you get at the end, etc. If a one of your allies doesn't like the way you're acting they might rebel, which can be quelled sometimes. If no one crushes the rebellion then the next stage will be a stage where you fight the officer that has rebelled against you. Evil Dong Zhou silhouette - Collect taxes from peasants Cao Cao silhouette - Someone has rebelled Good Merchant - Gives you an item Peon - Heals your party by 50HP with a meatbun ++Other silhouette's++ Doctor silhoutette - A doctor to heals you General raising an arm silhouette - Your craftsman advanced your facility Cao Cao silhouette - United China Two People silhouette - You and your general will stay together forever Emperor silhouette - Emperor rewards you for defending China *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* XII - Rankings UPDATED 7/23/06 [RNKG] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* After you have ended the game, dead or alive, scoring table is shown. You will be asked to save. This shows how well you by displaying your reputation, # of stages cleared, and if you ended the game dead/alive. Here are some titles that I know of. Hopefully, I will learn how to get each and put how to earn titles. Dynasty Warriors Diamond in the Rough Noble Ruler Noble Warrior Chaotic Warrior Chaotic Ruler Angel of Battle Demon in the Battle - Defeat lots of enemies? Solitary Master Master of Money - Have alot of money, very common rank Master of Grace Master of Beauty - Only hire/use female officers. Player doesn't need to be female. After the display you will be prompted to save again. Now you will be shown the books you've earned. A number of things could affect this as well. *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* XIII - Allied 2nd player (2P) [ALPR] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* To get a 2nd player to play along side with you, you must be on the PREPARATION screen. Plug in the Dual Shock controller to the 2nd port on your Playstation 2. On the upper right hand corner, under "Xtreme Mode" should read "2P PRESS START" If it does, then the 2nd player is ready to battle. They can only select a general that is in your current battle group. If the officer they want to be is in the reserved section, first go to QUIT 2P and then select the option SWITCH OFFICERS. When you switch accordingly, press start for the 2nd controller again and let them choose. Having a 2nd player along side of you is very helpful. With your friends aid you can cooperate and form simple strategies to finish tasks faster and safer. However, there are limitations for the Player 2. Around stage 50 the 2nd player could have some troubles surviving so be careful. Limitations 1. The 2nd player cannot equip items so later on they will be weaker. 2. Can't upgrade their weapons (Evolution, attributes, tokens) 3. Can't receive stat boosts like swords & shields 4. Harder to see due to fog, which makes it hard to see troops. (Use the zoom-in map to see them). 5. Player 2 gives battle commands/skills 6. If Player 2 dies, the whole game ends. Advantages 1. Stats go up by playing stages 2. Start with 3rd weapon 3. Can pick up ability boosts (Def x2, Attk x2) and healing items 4. Double Musou (YAY) *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* XIV - List of Character Skills/Commands/Elements UPDATED 7/12/07 [LCCE] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* Officers in your team may have skills/commands on the battlefield, allowing for you to change the odds fairly quickly. They range from Attk x2, Def x2, Musou 10 Sec., and Musou Rage. These skills usually activate when your getting surrounded or are advancing into the enemy. However, it would seem that not everyone has them. I have yet to encounter a girl character (besides CAW girls) with skills. Along with the commands of your allies they also have elemental attacks. Other generals besides your team also have elements/orbs (Fire, Ice, Dark, Light). All their charge attacks will be accompanied by this element to dish out more damage; however,there are exceptions. For example: Sun Ce has the Light Orb in Xtreme Mode. His charge attacks C1,C2,C3,C4,C6 all have the Light element added to them. His C5 is naturally a Fire element though. So, he gets the benefit of two elements in a way. Here is an incomplete list of the characters. I will organize it by their kingdoms. ==================================================== Officer | Skill/Command | Element | ==================================================== Wei ==================================================== Cao Cao | Musou 10 Sec. | ? | ==================================================== Cao Pi | Musou Rage | Ice | ==================================================== Zhen Ji | ? | Ice | ==================================================== Sima Yi | Musou 10 Sec. | Ice | ==================================================== Dian Wei | Def x2 | Fire | ==================================================== Xu Zhu | ? | Fire | ==================================================== Xiahou Dun | Musou Rage | Fire | ==================================================== Xiahou Yuan | Musou Rage | Fire | ==================================================== Zhang Liao | Attk x2 | Ice | ==================================================== Xu Huang | ? | Light | ==================================================== Zhang He | ? | Fire | ==================================================== Cao Ren | Def x2 | Light | ==================================================== Pang De | Def x2 | Light | ==================================================== Wu ==================================================== Sun Jian | ? | Fire | ==================================================== Sun Ce | Musou Rage | Light | ==================================================== Sun Quan | ? | Light | ==================================================== Sun Shang Xiang | ? | Fire | ==================================================== Huang Gai | Attk x2 | Fire | ==================================================== Zhou Yu | Musou Rage | Fire | ==================================================== Lu Xun | Musou 10 Sec. | Fire | ==================================================== Lu Meng | Def x2 | ? | ==================================================== Gan Ning | Attk x2 | Fire | ==================================================== Ling Tong | Attk x2 | ? | ==================================================== Taishi Ci | Def x2 | Light | ==================================================== Zhou Tai | Musou 10 Sec. | Dark | ==================================================== Da Qiao | ? | Fire | ==================================================== Xiao Qiao | ? | Fire | ==================================================== Shu ==================================================== Liu Bei | ? | Light | ==================================================== Guan Yu | Musou 10 Sec. | Light | ==================================================== Zhang Fei | Attk x2 | Fire | ==================================================== Zhuge Liang | Def x2 | Light | ==================================================== Zhao Yun | Musou Rage | Fire | ==================================================== Ma Chao | Attk x2 | Light | ==================================================== Huang Zhong | Musou Rage | Fire | ==================================================== Jiang Wei | Musou 10 Sec. | Light | ==================================================== Pang Tong | Def x2 | Ice | ==================================================== Wei Yan | Attk x2 | Ice | ==================================================== Yue Ying | ? | Ice | ==================================================== Guan Ping | Musou 10 Sec. | Fire | ==================================================== Xing Cai | ? | Light | ==================================================== Other ==================================================== Lu Bu |Musou 10 Sec.& Attk x2 | Light | ==================================================== Diao Chan | ? | Fire | ==================================================== Dong Zhou | Attk x2 | Light | ==================================================== Yuan Shao | ? | ? | ==================================================== Zhang Jiao | ? | Fire | ==================================================== Meng Huo | Attk x2 | ? | ==================================================== Zhu Rong | ? | Fire | ==================================================== Zuo Ci | Musou Rage | Light | ==================================================== CAW | Musou Rage | Random* | ==================================================== * When you create a CAW, they will have a generated element for them. This will be permanent. Another CAW with same moveset (Male or Female) will have a new random element. *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* XV - Unique Items [UQIT] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* While you play, you will probably come across a unique item. These are very useful but they can only be used once. Here's a complete list. ==================================================== Jeweled Harness - Start the stage on a saddle. It is a random unique horse of either Hex Mark, Shadow, Storm, or Red Hare. ==================================================== Recovery Pouch - Defeating 100 enemies within 3 minutes will restore 200HP ==================================================== Health Pouch - 50 health is restored with every 50 enemies defeated ==================================================== Musou Pouch - Your musou gauge will recover at a faster rate ==================================================== Token Pouch - Receive a Musou Token for every 50 enemies ==================================================== Tiger Orb - Increase attack. Best used with Dragon Orb(bigger boost in attack) ==================================================== Dragon Orb - Increase defense. Best used with Tiger Orb (bigger boost in defense) ==================================================== Archer Guard - Bow abilities improves. No longer stunned by arrows ==================================================== Luck Guard - Better growth items (Attk+2,Def+2) are dropped. ==================================================== Turtle Guard - Increase defense for allies ==================================================== Wind Guard - Improves speed ==================================================== *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* XVI - Suggestions/Tips [SUGT] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* Woohoo! My suggestion land! Hopefully these tips will help you last in later and later stages and hopefully reaching the limit (999?). These are my opinions so you don't have to agree. 1. Avoid going to the stage Nan Zhong, poison is very treacherous. 2. Have at least 1 strategist or girl. Doctors will be helpful. 3. NEVER get Huang Gai in your party. His bombs hurt your forces as well 4. Juggernauts>Archers>Elephants>Horse Riders>Sorcerers>Foot Soldiers : kill them in this order. 5. Don't bring a 2nd player past stage 50. They don't level up like you. 6. Zhou Tai is awesome against "invincible armies" with his dark element. 7. A spear user has a good chance of lasting longer. 8. Save your musou for when you're about to get hit. 9. Master the art of blocking/counter 10. Build your facility up as soon as possible 11. Good attributes for most generals are: Fill, Attk, Life, Def, Charge 12. Use an ointment very sparingly, maybe once every 5 stages. 13. Use common sense and plan a little before heading straight in. 14. Zhang Jiao is MORE useful NOT on your team. Stage heals of +200> him as ally 15. A good way to take down a tough opponent is to have a musou token ready and have kills in the 90s (192,97). That way, once you drained the first musou rage, you can quickly get another one. 16. If the enemy blocks your attack combo and you have musou, you can continue on attacking THEN release the musou right away to avoid getting hurt. 17. If you are attack or using your musou and ythe enemy is blocking your hits, try and continue attacking at a direction opposite of him at nothing preferably. This way, you have time to escape their counter attack. TwilightPheonix says, " Here's a good hint for the Stone Sentinel Soldiers: run em over with a horse. They don't flinch, so they take excessive amounts of damage and are really easy to kill that way. Too easy." *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* XVII - Questions/Answers UPDATED 7/19/07 [QUAS] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* Here's Q/A on things I haven't answers elsewhere. 1. "How random is the CAW's orb element? Does he/she always have the same random orb? Will it change with each time you play Xtreme Mode?" A: They will always have the same orb FOREVER after you have created them. 2. "When one of your officers says something like "I've known you for a long time, I shall be loyal and aid you till the end" What does it mean? A: They want revolt/leave you no matter what you do. If you do bad deeds like kidnapping and helping rebels, they don't care. 3. "Why don't my generals follow me sometimes in battle?" A. This is a glitch. It's random and can happen on any stage. Your generals act like there is an invisible wall somewhere and they don't cross over it. You could try a different route to get to your destination to see if they will follow, but there is no actual solution. *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* XVIII - Credits [CEIT] *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* Well, this guide was fun for me.
