This guide won't be touched for a long time, unless some obvious error is pointed out. 3. Game Strategies Your Bodyguards --- Ah.. the loyal bodyguards. They don't even know that you couldn't care less about them (Unless their Elite). Most of the time the bodyguards end up being puppets for you.They distract generals while you attack them from behind. Depending on the level, and what type of player you are, you use different weapons. Bow's and Crossbows are good for the people who like to annoy the other side with their arrows.. as for me.. I ABSOLUTLY HATE ENEMY ARCHERS! Arrrggg.. they make me so mad because they run when you get close to them and when theirs too many they just sit their flining arrows at you, so you can barely move. Back to what I was saying. Spears and Pikes are good for holding out some place such as a castle, then advancing as you've wiped out all the invaders, or defenders of the place. Swords are good for getting up close and personal with the enemy and just bursting through everything and killing everyone. Should you stumble upon the Bodyguard manual and equip it, they'll be stronger, more aggressive, and have more power. It's good because the battle will be somewhat easier. Its bad because they will take your kills, and more less your points, and it tends to get them into bigger clusters with more enemys, but since yours guards are stronger, I guess it'll be easier and you'll get about the same amount of kills too. Combo Attacks --- The last hit of a your combo needs recovery time, being that you just did a powerful attack. During this time your in the open for attacks from other enemys. If you need to attack quickly and repeatedly use attacks that use one less hit than your maximum combo. For example, if your character has a four hits maximum, only hit your enemy three times. You can do the same with stronger weapons that allow more hits as well. Here are the specified attacks (Assuming your using default controls. --------------------------------- | | | S (Square.. aka regular attack) | | | | T (Triangle.. aka Power attack) | | | --------------------------------- s s-s s-s-s s-s-s-s s-s-s-s-s s-s-s-s-s-s Not very effective.. just a basic combo for an easy battle.. .. But what if you run into a stronger officer? You'll need a better combo.. Lets try. t = Just a basic knockback attack to send your enemy down showing them your ready for a fight. s-t = A regular attack and a power attack. Somewhat effective.. knocks an enemy into the air. This combo can be done over and over and over, until somebody attack you, and you kill them for messing up your great combo! s-s-t = Attack that stuns your enemy, good on strong generals so you can get in more hits. s-s-s-t = A fairly good attack that knocks your enemy back, and can send him through other people, including your men. s-s-s-s-t = A five hit combo that sends your enemy into the air, and you can then follow up by pressing Triangle again, and giving him a 'knockdown' type move. Or just keep doing it over and over.. or just hit him. s-s-s-s-s-t = The best combo with Square and Triangle..does knock back or stun, depending on which character your using. Certain characters can press Triangle after the sixth hit to get more hits off. You usually have to have the 4th weapon to do this.. Also, you could do any of the combos above and then use your musou RIGHT after you finish, that is also a strong combo. Attacking Attack Generals or Officers when their backs are turned, as you can not block turned the other way. So while a General is struggling with someone in your army in a duel, attack him from behind! Cheap.. Yes.. Effective.. Yes. ----------------- The Art of Musou ----------------- The Types of Musou Attacks --- Musou attacks can be preformed when the gauge below your health is full and blinking. To Do so press Circle and hold it. You will unleash a powerful attack on your opponents. To gain musou you can Hold Circle down when your just standing there, or attack people/be attacked. True Musou --- The True Musou attack can be used when your down in low (red) health. You will perform a musou attack, but it will be stronger, and have fire added in. Also your musou gauge will replenish by itself. --------------------------------- Arrow Shooting/First Person View --------------------------------- Hold Down R1 to get in first person view. To fire your arrow, get in first person view and Press either Sqaure (Regular Arrow), Triangle (Paralyzing Arrow) or Circle (Musou Arrow which can fire more than one) ----------- Change Maps ----------- Press R2 to get a map of whats going on around you, press R2 again to get a view of the whole stage. --------------- Transportation --------------- There are five different horses in this game. Unlike Dynasty Warriors 2, they horse's speed and ability is not generic, here are their rankings and Information. Light Brown This horse sucks. It can't run through anything. Usually Sergeants Captains ride these. You can mount them at any level. Dark Brown Horse These are Ok.. I guess, they're not so great. You have to be rank 13 to mount them. They can run through weaklings but not Guards Captains or stronger ranked people. They're usually ridden by Loser no-Name officers. White Horse Minimum Rank is 11 to ride it. These are usually ridden by officers that you can play as. This is the best horse you can get in most level's except Hu Lao Gate.. Hex Mark Horse A black horse. You need to be level 5 to ride this horse. Its like the Red Hare, but the Red Hare can outrun it just barely. You can get this by obtaining the Hex Mark Saddle at Cheng Du. These horses are hard to find.. as yhe only person I've seen ride a Hex Mark was Liu Bei. Red Hare Horse The fastest in the game. Ridden by the Almighty LU BU!!! ::Terror Music plays:: You can obtain a Red Hare by getting the Red Hare Saddle at Hu Lao Gate. Elephants Oh yeah! Everyone talks about them, and you get them during the Nanman Campaign. Every time I played the Nanman campaign I could use an elephant so Im guessing they don't have a level. But If your above level 12 by the Nanman Campaign start killing more people. Meng Huo and Zhu Rong's elephants however, require you to be a Knight General/Perimiter General (or whatever.. rank 1) to ride it. ---------------- Mounted Attacks ---------------- Mounted Attacks aren't all that great. Actually, they suck. You can't turn around and they cant go up some hills. If you like Mounted Attacks, great. I hate them and so do most people. You usually end up getting shot down by the bow-men which I hate so much, or knocked off by a soldier. ------------------- Securing the Gates ------------------- Whenever you pass a gate, take care of the gate captain. Kill him, that way he can't send out more troops, and your team will have it. A message will appear saying "Your Guy/Girl unit has secured the gate". The gate captain also drops a defensive item, so you get stronger. Secure as many gates as you can in the beginning so you can win easier and get better defense. -------------- Enemy Retreat -------------- Usually when you kill an entire fleet.. for instance you kill Xiahou Dun and his one officer. Therefore, his troops have nobody to give out orders. So the enemy retreats. They will run to the nearest gate they have, unless ones not around for miles, then they will just fight poorly. But, should they retreat, leave them be. You want as many people alive as possible. All that pursuing a retreating team will do is kill some of your men and hurt you a bit. Just leave the Cowards to run. --------------- My Cheap Tricks --------------- Here are some of my cheap tricks that I use when I need to win a battle. First, when your in red and surrounded by the enemy just use the musou and run like heck. Or, should you get knocked down, stay down until your forced to get up or until your Musou gauge is full again. That way, you can wipe out some people until some team comes and saves your dying butt. Second, Let your troops get everyone down and almost dead and then move in for the death slaughter. You'll get most of the kills and more points at the end of the battles, In ther meantime, just kill the commanding officer, then the troops, Im sure most of you would do this, but Its my usual Strategy. ------------ Game Errors ------------ --At Guan Du, Yuan Shao's side, every time Guan Yu kills a general, it will say "Guan Yu7 Has scattered This General's troop!" --At the Assault on Wu Territory, Wu side, when playing as Sun Jian, Zhou Yu will still call him Sun Ce --In the DW3 Manual under "Other Hero's" Yuan Shao is listed at "Yuan Shang" --In the DW3 Manual under Wu's army. it will say Sun Jian is the commander but show Sun Quan's picture. --In the Database under Officers.. in Dian Wei's info you will see.. "@After Zhang Xiu's attack on Wan Castle.." the @ isn't supposed to be there. --When you play as Dian Wei on Musou mode and free mode at Chang Ban, Wei side, it'll begin with Xu Huang's face being shown but Dian Wei's voice saying that he'll cut them down, then it goes to Dian Wei's face and what he says, but Xu Huang's voice is in place 4. Characters of the Three Kingdoms (In no particular order) ------------------- SHU (Green) ------------------- Zhao Yun (initial) -- Guy with the armor and spear. Not many people choose him because thats the guy who always starts off selected. Guan Yu (initial) -- A good pick for a beginner. Has a long black beard and a cool looking glaive. He's a great asset to your team,but a pain when you face him. Zhang Fei (initial) -- Powerful looking man with a somewhat long beard.. Acts pretty tough and cocky. Zhuge Liang -- Pretty cool guy in a white robe, green hat and fan. He's pretty weak when he starts off and gets stronger. Experts Only for him.. trust me. Ma Chao -- A brave soldier in gold dragon armor. He's my favorite character. Uses a spear. Wei Yan -- A dude in a mask. He's not all that great. Wei Yan does not talk too much, so he's not very noticeable. Pang Tong -- Looks like a hobo and talks funny. He uses a staff. I didn't really like him too much, but he does have good combos once you get him better. Huang Zhong -- He's SUPPOSED to use a bow, but he uses a sword. He looks like he should retire from war.. but, he's actually not all that bad. The only thing I noticed about him, is this fool has absoultly NO BALANCE! Jiang Wei -- I didn't even notice this fool until I was playing as Liu Bei. He looks just like a no-name officer. I didn't like him all that much, and he really needs a change of clothes. Liu Bei -- Shu Kingdom ruler. The guy is the man. Near the end of his musou he has an "Extendo-Sword" like move. You gotta love the speech he gave at Chang Ban. One of my favorites. ----------------- WEI (Blue) ----------------- Xiahou Dun (initial) -- Guy with the big sword, blue cap, gold armor.. and eyepatch. A little slow, but pretty good. Zhen Ji -- Hot looking girl in that blue dress.. Uses a flute to make men fall in love with her.. then abuses them. Dang. Dian Wei (initial) -- What a fitting last name.. Wei, the name of his kingdom. He's a bald dude with an axe and a horsehead. Zhang He (initial) -- The guy with A big claw and the purple pants. Kinda flamer like if you ask me. He's not all that bad though. He asks if the enemy camp is pretty on one stage, which is probably one of the funniest cut scenes ever. Xu Zhu -- Fatty as myself and my friends call him. He uses a club to attack. And what he says after he beats the first level had me laughing. Musou attack and jump attack is hilarious. Word of warning: Get a horse for him or the battle you'll be running POWER slow. Dont tell anyone I said this but he's pretty cool.. Xiahou Yuan -- Fat guy with a sword, Sandals (Odd fellow isn't he) and a purple robe. Related to Xiahou Dun. Sima Yi -- Guy in dark purple robes who uses a feather fan. Eventually becomes the leader of Wei (unless you play through as Cao Cao) Zhang Liao -- A man in a sailor like suit.. using a glaive. Thinks he's great. He looks like he's been drinking or something, but he does come in handy, especially at He Fei. Xu Huang -- Guy who uses a battle axe. He's good for intermediate players.. but must be unlocked first. Cao Cao -- Wei kingdom ruler whom uses a sword. Who dosen't enjoy using this evil warlord? Runs away too much when you face him. --------------- WU (Red) --------------- Sun Shang Xiang (initial) -- One of the four people in the Sun family of Wu. She uses a chakram and is speedy. Only initial girl you can pick. Zhou Yu (initial) -- Wears a red robe and a sword. He sounds like he's got something in his throat.. or he hasn't hit puberty yet. Good for beginners. Huang Gai (initial) -- Big.. Fierce looking fella with a club. Da Qiao -- Da Qiao is the black haired girl with the red fans. She's only 15, but shes quick.. and is married to Sun Ce. Xiao Qiao -- Xiao Qiao is the other girl who is Da Qiao's sister. She is married to Zhou Yu... but I have a feeling Zhou Yu likes boys. Shes 15 years old, and like her sister, shes quick, but cuter than her sister. Lu Xun -- A midget with two little glowing swords, and a funky red hat. He's stronger than you'd think though. Sun Ce -- Guy with the nightsticks or a tonfa.. which is supposed to make him sound bad. He sounds different than he looks. Sun Jian -- Man in gold armor and carries a sword. Gets crushed by rocks, and even though he dies, its funny. Lu Meng -- Dude with a ghetto spear, and is quite good if you use him right. Gan Ning -- Guy with all these tattoo's, red pants and bells on him pants (Supposidly scares people.. lol) Wields a big sword if you fighting him, if your him, he starts with a stupid weak baby sword. Taishi Ci -- A man with some attacking sticks I guess. He joins the Wu army after The assault on the Wu Territory. Sun Quan -- A leader of Wu who uses a sword. I guess he takes on the role of King of Wu after Sun Jian dies.. but he sounds like a little punk when you hit him, quite annoying too. ----------------------------- Neutral (Grey) (Not available in Musou Mode) ----------------------------- Lu Bu -- A legend and supposedly the best there is (Even though I beat him with my first time playing through the game) Dong Zhuo -- He's repulisive and he's a loser. Im so glad he dies, I can't stand him. Diao Chan -- The hot lady who wears pink and white. Mmm.. easy to kill.. and most likely easy to thrill. Zhang Jiao -- Calls his group the way of peace, even though he sends his "Children of the Yellow Turban" to slaughter a village. He's good for playing with, but it satisfys me killing him. He's also the only person who can ride Red Hare in Endurance mode. Yuan Shao -- Dude with yellow armor, cape and sword. He's wearing some odd battle equipment. Meng Huo -- Ack. Fat Savage who runs around like a wild animal with beast claws. Whatever you do dont do a running attack with him or a jumping attack with him, You see under his pants.. and thats something you'll regret forever. Zhu Rong -- Desendant of the God of Fire or something like that. Her guards are all sexy woman, and so is she. Fu Xi -- Looks like an RPG Character and has a cool big sword. Nu Wa -- Fast girl who can do a great musou combo that can get ALOT of hits off. ---------------------- Unlocking them ---------------------- SHU (Green) ---------------------- Complete musou mode with one Shu general.

Answer- Just Clear Musou mode with people from different Armys every time. Usually after you beat it you'll unlock somebody, and if your dumb, it was explained before! Question- My character is a weak loser.. I cant even beat a trooper. What level can I power him up on and how can i make it easier. Answer- Play in free mode with your selected character. Facing the Yellow Turbans isn't to hard, and if your new to Dynasty Warriors or games similar to this, put the difficulty setting on Easy. My favorite stage to level up people on was Guan Du, Wei side. I just went to the far left, and killed nearly 800 people there with Xu Zhu (Level 15.. and he sucks.) It got me a whole lotta points too! Question- My troops fail me. They blow. How can I get my bodyguards to be better instead of relying on my crappy troops? Answer- Level up. As you go up, your Bodyguards fighting ability will go up. Find the Bodyguard Manual (read on for location) and they'll be more fierce. They wont go from weakling to Superman in one battle. You have to be a pretty good rank before you'll get 8 elite guards. Question- How come I cant use initial characters I used in Dynasty Warriors 2? Answer- They've changed them around I'm guessing. If you still have your Dynasty Warriors 2 saved file, load it onto the game. You'll get a few characters that were initial in Dynasty Warriors 2. Question- Does making your combo's bigger, like 255+ hits on officers make my prize better? Answer- No, but yes. Sometimes it does.. But I think It only works on the playable officers. Question- Holy Banana's Batman! (Insert Bosses Name here) kicked my butt, what should I do to win? Answer- Kill easier and weaker Generals. Then leave most of it up to your troops. Check out his health with L2 every once in awhile. And once he's almost dead, charge your musou gauge up, attack him from the back and Musou attack him just before he hits the ground. Question- How much time time do I get per stage? Answer- 30 Minutes for a small stage, 90 minutes for a very large stage. You can easily tell the time limit by looking at the map. Or you can just press start and view it. Question- How do you get the Grand Star for Dong Zhou? How do you get (Insert name)'s final weapon!? Answer- Just refer to the section with weapons. Also, if someone has to stay alive, either go and fight along side him/her or have one of your buddy's fight as him. Question- How do I get a better item, I want something with +40 or something and all I get is +9! Answer- Fight on Harder stages with harder difficultys. 6. Walkthrough Note: This walkthrough assumes that you are playing on Normal Difficulty. If your playing on Easy it will be considerably easier, and if your playing on hard it will be considerably harder then thiss walkthrough states. Every stage for every Kingdom will be included. --------------------------- 184 A.D. The Yellow Turban Rebellion Han vs. Turbans --------------------------- Played By Han: Liu Bei, Guan Yu, Huang Zhong, Wei Yan, Cao Cao, Xu Huang, Xiahou Yuan, Xiahou Dun, Huang Gai, Sun Jian, Lu Meng and Da Qiao Han Dynasty Side: You'll see a FMV of the turbans destroying a village. Odd that Zhang Jiao calls his clique the Way of Peace and yet he's slaughtering innocent people. He dies now. You see all of the leaders of the kindoms, but mainly yours.. Then the first battle ensues. First of all clear as many gates as possible. Heres the sceneario.. your defending a large castle and your Commanding General is some dude called He Jin. The Three Kindgom Commanders are in all different places.. Sun Jian is at the west side of the castle,Liu Bei is at the east side of the castle, and Cao Cao is on the south side. The thing that makes it easier is that You dont have loser no-name generals, you have playable, good characters as Generals. That assist you somewhat. And all the turbans have is Zhang Jiao. The rest are no names.. but watch out, they can be tough. The best thing to do in your situation is to clear out everything around you, steal a horse and defeat Zhang Jiao in the southwest. After you do he'll say he has no time for unenlightenment and he will then teleport and start attacking the castle in the north. Your forces can handle it so go the the far east on the map and up the hill. Then Zhang Bao will start will start dropping boulders down the cliff. Kill the strong people, and try hard not to get hit by boulders, The bad part is it does a fair amount of damage on your Weak Ass Character. The good part to this is it crushes everyone, even your enemys, Once you get up far enough you dont have to face boulders any more, and you will get a scene where your dashing them boulders up. They're gone for good, Secure the gate on the right, and then go to the "Island" to the right and kill Zhang Bao. After he dies his little bodyguards flee with their tails between their legs. Around this time, Zhang Liang will freeze the river and the turbans will move across to the castle. They suck, so dont worry about it. Now hurry, run to the castle. It might be in trouble.. wait the turbans cant fight their way out of a wet paper bag. If it is, you suck.. though you get an exception if your on Hard.. Anyway.. go their and save He Jin, and if not go through the castle. If Zhang Jiao was defeated by somebody in there or you kill him when the castle is under attack you'll get a cutscene of him saying.. "When All else fails attack!" That boosts the Turbans Morale. Crap. Anyway, he appears in the northwest, but by then you should have wiped out most of the Turbans. If He Jin has enough Han troops surrounding him, Go kill Zhang Jiao, if not, protect him until the troops in the castle are dead, then kill Zhang Jiao. As your advancing towards Zhang Jiao you'll notice most of his stupid weak baby troops have died, and everyones morale for the Han side will skyrocket. They now counterattack. Zhang Jiao is screwed, and as you kill him he leaves you with his message... "Though my body may die.. My Spirit will live forever" Riight. What a loser, your done with those Turbans. Yellow Turban Side: Not exactly a walk in the park. More like a walk through a field full of Claymore Mines. I reccommend using someone who can kick alotta booty. Or else you might be in trouble. The Han Dynasty puts up a fight, a real good fight. My strategy is the protect Zhang Jiao with your life, And if your Zhang Jiao, fight like you've never fought before. Next, Advance and kill all the Generals (Liu Bei,Sun Jian,Cao Cao). They're troops will scatter like... a.. Japanese Tea Bag. The three generals aren't as tough as they are near the end, so your lucky. Now, go in the castle and send the troops down, then kill the commanders and fast as you can.. let your troops attempt to take down the ambush teams, then after you've cleared most of the castle, kill the ambushers if they're still living (Easier said than done). Now advance to He Jin's position and kill as many people as you can an He Jin. He Jin is harder and has extreme stamina, he dosen't completely and utterly suck and he isn't a chumpstain, like he was in Dynasty Warriors 2. --------------------------- 191 A.D. The Battle at Hu Lao Gate Allied Forces vs. Dong Zhou --------------------------- Played By Allied Forces: Liu Bei, Cao Cao, Sun Jian, Zhang Fei, Guan Yu, Pang Tong, Wei Yan, Dian Wei, Sun Ce, Zhou Yu, Xiahou Dun, Xiahou Yuan, Xu Huang, Zhen Ji, Huang Gai, Taishi Ci, Xiao Qiao, Da Qiao and Lu Meng Allied Forces: This isn't too hard of a battle if you beat the Yellow Turban Rebellion easily, or if you've played Dynasty Warriors or Dynasty Warriors 2 before. The Allies have Dong Zhou's frog looking self outnumbered, and its hard for Yuan Shao to die, he's surrounded in a secluded area with Many, many troops. Liu Bei, Cao Cao and Sun Jian's forces will take care of the forces easily. If you think your good enough, go over to where Yuan Shu is and fight Lu Bu, if not, go there anyway and attack his troops.. or just follow your respective leader. And If you are Liu Bei,Sun Jian or Cao Cao.. follow the orders Yuan Shao gives you or you'll get kinda screwed up and the part where you were supposed to go will get swarmed by enemys. After your done doing either of the above,move toward Hu Lao Gate. As your moving there, you'll trigger about 15 archers. Stop right away! Take out your bow and kill em' all. Or else your troops will suffer and so will you. After thats done you'll Reach Hu Lao Gate. From there, an Assault Unit will appear. Protect the Assualt Captain, then after you've reached a closed Hu Lao Gate, a cutscene will occur with your Character ready to storm Hu Lao Gate. Kill everyone back there, and Hu Lao Gate will fall, Then people SWARM out of the gate, and right there is Diao Chan. Kill her.. shes weak, no more than a few hits should destory her. Go up to the top of the gate and kill people up there. Then take out all three gate captains. No more troops will appear but possibly crappy reinforcements of Dong Zhou that Cao Cao usually takes care of. And you dont have to worry about Yuan Shao, hes moving towards Hu Lao Gate and he's got plenty of troops. Kill alot of soliders inside the gate, and keep your distance from Dong Zhou. Then.. ATTACK THE FROG LOOKING FOOL! Kill him, and leave that foo. He deserves to die.. after thats done, Congrats! You've won. Dong Zhou Forces: I found it fun playing on his side. You usually start around Hu Lao Gate, go wipe out Yuan Shu with Lu Bu. Then your free to do whatever, make sure nobody gets releativly close to Hu Lao Gate. Cut them off it they get on the path to Hu Lao Gate. Kill people, officers and then just defeat Yuan Shao. And even though he has alot of troops, its not all that hard. --------------------------- 192 A.D. Surprise Attack on Liu Biao Sun Jian vs. Liu Biao --------------------------- Played By Sun Jian: Sun Jian, Taishi Ci, Huang Gai and Da Qiao Sun Jian Forces: This isn't too hard of a battle to win, just like the last two. In this battle, Sun Jian dies, unless your playing as him. He gets CRUSHED by rocks. Now avenge him. Just beat up the officers, and leave them to your troops, or exterminate them.. whatever you want. Then advance onward, and destroy Liu Biao and his troops should they get in your way. Easier Done than said (And I said that correctly, its not the other way around) Liu Biao Forces: Theres not much to explain here. Sun Jian doesn't die by getting hit by rocks at all, so you have to kill him. I believe Liu Biao has more forces, so it isn't too hard of a battle. Focus on taking out all the Generals, as the troops here are weak. I suggest going after Huang Gai first, as he's the strongest fighter. When you have taken care of Huang Gai, go after every other sub-general. They shouldn't put up too much of a fight, as they are those to Qiao sisters. Sun Jian isn't too much of a match either, unless the difficulty is set to hard. ------------------------ 197 A.D. The Battle at Wan Castle Cao Cao vs. Zhang Xiu ------------------------ Played By Cao Cao's Force's: Cao Cao, Xu Huang and Dian Wei Cao Cao's Forces: Zhang Xiu set Wan Castle on fire, and ambushed it, They want to take it over. Well, Cao Cao wont allow this.. and neither will you. This is just a warm up for hard battles to come. You fight a lot Generals and officers, all no name generals that aren't too great. You have two ways to win from this level. 1. Clear a way for Cao Cao to leave, and 2. Defeat Zhang Xiu. Since for SOME reason Cao Cao will never escape, you'll have to kill Zhang Xiu. If you do not act fast, Dian Wei will be killed. Most of the time, he will be, but it's not that bad. Make your way south past every officer you come in contact with, decimating your way through until you meet Zhang Xiu, from there, kill him. Zhang Xiu: This side is tougher than playing on Cao Cao's side, you have no really good officers while Cao Cao has pretty good ones. However, Cao Cao does not have any gates to bring out more soldiers, but along the way some reinforcments will come. Dian Wei is the first guy you'll have to fight.. You'll have to beat him to clear the first gate and advance on. As you get closer, the reinforcing Xiahou Brothers.. Xiahou Dun and Xiahou Yuan will appear. If you want, you can go fight them. Cao Cao is guarded by two people and a bunch of other guys though, so wait until your Cao Cao's force is almost dead. If you continue north, you will be raped by Ambush parties. You have to take these guys out fast, Musou up before the attack, because Cao Cao will try and escape. ----------------------- 197 A.D. Assault On Wu Territory Sun Ce vs. Allies ----------------------- Played By Sun Ce's Forces: Sun Jian, Sun Ce, Zhou Yu and Diao Qiao Sun Ce Forces: This stage is pretty easy, come on, bring on the hard ones, is that what your saying? Just you wait.. you'll get beaten up soon. There are 3 generals you have to kill to win. None of them are good, and none are actually playable characters. But you do have to face the powerhouse Taishi Ci. Since your character probably wont be good enough to beat this monstrocity.. just kill Liu Yong. Taishi Ci then joins your side.. and makes the battle even easier because this man is a tank. From here you can pick where you wanna go, as there should only be two generals left to kill. Pick one on the map, go there and kill him, and repeat for the next general. Viola, stage complete. Allies Side: I guess you could say this is just a "Slaughter Everybody!" level. Make sure your leaders aren't dying, or at least save one. Look for Zhou Yu and Sun Ce, and take out their generals. Both should have 4, which isn't good, Oh well, you can do it. If you want to take the easy way out, just run up to Zhou Yu and kill him, then go after Sun Ce. This is sort of hard to do though, because both men have alot of cronies. I suggest taking out every last general to gain full experience, thus, making your character stronger. Eventually, the two will split up, and you will have to run across the stage to kill both of them. Taishi Ci can and will defect if he is defeated. --------------------- 200 A.D. The Battle At Guan Du Cao Cao vs. Yuan Shao --------------------- Played By Cao Cao: Cao Cao, Xu Huang, Xu Zhu, Sima Yi, Zhang He, Xiahou Dun and Xiahou Yuan Cao Cao's Forces: This stage is finally a difficult one. Go to them If it's the depot, you will see a cut scene, after which you must infiltrate the stronghold and kill the gate captain, then, its set on fire. Once you've done this, Cao Cao's troops will counter attack. And.. An enemy unit will appear in the castle near the beginning. Take them down, or they'll do significant damage. At some point Guan Yu and Liu Bei will meet. They don't want to fight each other, so Liu Bei's unit retreats. Thats good, he's tough, and now he's gone. Go where you please, but once you have nowhere good to go, go to the northwest part of the map. And Yuan Shao will be there. He's strong, only because he has So many troops. Take alot of them out and he should be alot easier to beat. Yuan Shao's Forces: There's not too much I can say about this one here. Every time Guan Yu kills an officer, that loser officer will seem like he's gonna kill Guan Yu, but Guan Yu kills him without any effort. Its quite funny. He retreats once he encounters Liu Bei though, so thats good. Just move through places, protect Yuan Shao, and eventually get into the castle and Kill Cao Cao. ------------------- 201 A.D. Guan Yu's Escape Guan Yu vs. Cao Cao ------------------- Played By Guan Yu: Guan Yu Cao Cao: Xiahou Dun Guan Yu's Forces: Mmm.. Challenge. In order to beat this stage, you'll have to fight and defeat Zhang He, Zhen Ji, Xiahou Yuan, Xu Huang, and Xu Zhu. Each of these enemies will have a no-name officer. Plow through the officers and generals, and keep on riding fast. Too add to your worries, Xiahou Dun appears at the starting point of the stage and starts to chase you down. He'll most likely catch up to him, and then you must dispose of him. Its a good idea to wait for him because, after you kill him, he'll drop a special Item. Im not saying what it is (And you can easily find out what it is).. but just for suspense.. wait until the battle is finished to find out what it is, dont just scroll down and find it. Make sure to grab the life max up near the wagons in the first area, and after you pass the second gate, there will be a Musou gauge power up directly to the right of the exit. This is a good stage to level up on because its fast and you get good experience and items from the many officers. And once you beat it, Liu Bei and Zhang Fei show up to help their brother. Cao Cao's Forces: A nice came of catch up is what you'll be playing. Guan Yu will be leaving on a carriage, and the only person pursuing him is Xiahou Dun. Looks like its gonna be hard, but your not taking Defeat, oh no your not. Guan Yu is gonna leave troops for you to fight, so dispose of the officer guarding the gate and keep advancing. But, at the fifth gate, you have to face Zhao Yun, which isn't so easy. The final battle.. Guan Yu, kill him. Make sure he's not waaaay infront of you or else he'll be gone. ----------------------- 208 A.D. The Battle of Chang Ban Liu Bei vs. Cao Cao ----------------------- Played By Liu Bei's Forces: Liu Bei, Zhuge Liang, Zhao Yun, Zhang Fei, Ma Chao, Huang Zhong, Guan Yu, Jiang Wei, Pang Tang and Wei Yan Cao Cao's Forces: Cao Cao, Xu Zhu, Zhang Liao, Sima Yi, Zhang He, Zhen Ji and Dian Wei Liu Bei's Forces: You start off near Xiahou Dun and Zhang Liao, along with two enemy gate Captains. Cao Cao has not yet arrived, don't fret, he'll be there soon and closer than you think. Try to take Zhang Liao and Xiahou Dun out, taking out the two Gate Captians isn't that bad of an Idea either. Once your done, you got two choices, Escape the area and get somewhere else and battle enemys, or, wait for Cao Cao to appear, as he will show up after about 5-10 minutes. If you want, you can defeat the stage quickly by beating Cao Cao. But if you hate Wei, or just want an all out war, leave Cao Cao for later. Eventually, Liu Bei's rescue ships will appear. You can clear the stage by beating all the enemy generals between Liu Bei and his ships and letting him escape. You also could accompany the peasants, but thats not too much of a worry unless you wanna do it the hard way, be warned, if the peasants Die, Liu Bei won't retreat. I would reccomend just beating Cao Cao if your characters isn't all that good.. Cao Cao's Side: It looks like the odds are against you for some reason, even though you have more troops, Liu Bei's unit puts up a fight..On this stage, Liu Bei will move southwest and retreat, then ya lose. Your not letting that happen though. Take out the foolish general around you, and if he has a good horse, take it if you dont have a fast character.. Zhang Fei will hold off your guys at the Chang Ban bridge, so take him out yourself, so that your guys can continue to advance on Liu Bei. Liu Bei is stuck fighting your guys now, so charge him, and take him out. -------------------- 208 A.D. The Battle at Chi Bi Allies vs Cao Cao -------------------- Played By Allied Force's: Liu Bei, Zhuge Liang, Zhang Fei, Ma Chao, Jiang Wei, Pang TOng and Zhao Yun, Sun Jian, Zhou Yu, Lu Meng, Sun Ce, Sun Quan, Huang Gai, Sun Shang Xiang, Lu Xun, Taishi Ci,Da Qiao, Xiao Qiao and Gan Ning Cao Cao's Force's: Cao Cao, Zhen Ji, Xu Zhu, Dian Wei, Zhang He, Zhang Liao and Sima Yi Allied Forces: -Wu Forces-: This stage is a good battle. If you rush through it, stuff is gonna happen. First, make your way up to the center of the screen, where Xiahou Dun is waiting for a battle, beat him and then.. After a while, Zhuge Liang will use the wind (Which I dont think really means a darn thing). This will set Huang Gai into motion towards the center. And Zhou Yu will start acting like a moron, running around in a triangle and acting like he's important if the fire attack is stopped, so.. All units are supposed to cover him, but if you took Xiahou Dun out of the way, he'll have no problems getting there. This will set up the fire attack later on, that will lower Cao Cao's Morale, and everybody on Cao Cao's side will get worried. Just move on to Cao Cao from there, pick whatever way you want to go kill Cao. The end fight with Cao Cao can be tough. He has plenty of Gates and those moronic archers which I so totally despise. You should have a good amount of troops if you didn't rush through this stage, and if only like 2 or 3 officers died, its not too bad, you'll be able to win if you've got at least one other unit attacking with you. Allied Forces: -Shu Forces-: This is pretty simple and alot like the Wu side, You'll start off far left of Sun Quan, just wipe out the people on land, and make sure Huang Gai dosen't die. Soon the winds should kick in, and then everyone has to cover Huang Gai, DO IT PLEASE! If you dont. Zhou Yu should start running in a triangle back and fourth and acting like a moron, and its so annoying, that loser Zhou Yu dosen't deserve to be a General, he should be a Private! Well, anyway, advance upward, and make sure the fire attack gets off, and just fight I guess. Cao Cao's Forces: This stage is just to stop the fire attack, and take out everybody. You can stop the fire attack by defeating Zhou Yu or Huang Gai. Beat Zhou Yu so he dosen't sniff glue because he failed and run around like a fool. If the fire attack goes off, your morale will drop down. Once you've stopped the fire attack, just take out the enemies that get in your way. You'll have to take down some pretty tough Wu people, but you can handle it, and your troops probably can too. So move to Sun Quan, and fight him. ------------------- 211 A.D. Battle at Tong Gate Allies vs Cao Cao ------------------- Played By Allied Forces: Ma Chao Cao Cao's Forces: Cao Cao, Xu Zhu, Zhang Liao, Xu Huang Allies Forces: This is just a brawl for all. You have strong troops but you've also got to defeat Xu Huang, Xu Zhu, Cao Cao and Xiahou Yuan, which isn't too easy. Keep your officers alive or Han Sui will defect to Cao Cao and bring your Morale down twice, that means Pang De or Mai Dai MUST LIVE. The troops are just regular, but the officers and generals, are sorta tough. Cao Cao's Forces: This is a pretty hard battle if you dont have a strong character. Ma Chao's guards are probably stronger than you at this point in time. If you can defeat Ma Chao's two officers, Han Sui and Cao Cao will meet. Cao Cao will eventually get Han Sui to defect. Other than that, it's a basic, kill everyone on the opposing side, then finish off Ma Chao You can just take an easy way out though by finding Ma Chao, whom is right by Tong Gate and kill him, but he's pretty strong this time around, so you might actually wanna wait for some troops to damage him a bit. -------------------- 214 A.D. Assault on Chen Du Liu Bei vs Liu Zhang -------------------- Played By Liu Bei's Forces: Liu Bei, Zhao Yun, Pang Tong, Huang Zhong, and Zhang Fei Liu Bei's Forces: This is a pretty easy, but theres alot of officers you have to defeat, none of them are that tough though. There's no map when you start out in the forest. Basically just kill people,then Liu Zhang. The only cutscene is when Pang Tong leaves the forest and comments on where he is. Right after this, Zhang Ren will come after his unit. Go help him. Once you beat him, kill every other officer, and after Liu Zhang is the only one left, get to Hex Mark Saddle. When you've killed everyone, He will surrender, or you could just kill him, hes not too hard. Liu Zhang's Forces: Basically all your doing is fighting three Shu Generals. Beat up troops, then beat Zhou Yun and Pang Tong, which are a little hard. Also, you have to beat Liu Bei. -------------------- 215 A.D. The Battle at He Fei Wei vs Wu -------------------- Wei: Cao Cao, Dian Wei, Xiahou Dun, Xiahou Yuan, Zhang Liao, Xu Huang and Zhen Ji Wu: Sun Jian, Sun Quan, Sun Ce, Xiao Qiao Zhou Yu, Lu Xun, Taishi Ci, Sun Shang Xiang, and Gan Ning Wei's Forces: Make sure Zhang Liao stays alive. He's a big thing in this battle, because he wipes out Taishi Ci with his archers for you. If you defeat the other generals in the main square, Zhang Liao will tell Cao Cao he's leaving and is gonna attack the enemy commander. Shortly after Zhang Liao is done with Taishi Ci, Gan Ning will jump out of a ditch or river like the little troll he is and attack. He has a pretty big fleet, so advance slowly on him. As you finish Gan Ning of.. kill the commander (Sun Quan/Ce/Jian) Wu's Forces: You'll be put in the middle of the battle, the heart of the battle, the center of the map.. anyway, thats good because you can go more than one way. Kill Zhang Liao or else Taishi Ci is gonna die. You've got to kill Cao Cao once you get to him, so kill most enemy generals and then move to Cao Cao, whom is fairly hard to defeat. ------------------------ 219 A.D. The Battle at Fan Castle Shu vs Allies ------------------------ Played By Shu Forces: Guan Yu Allies Forces: Sima Yi, Sun Ce, Lu Xun, Gan Ning, Lu Meng Shu Side: This stage is tough, even though its small All Shu has is Guan Yu and his son Guan Ping. You'll probably end up beating everybody, or you could just make a run for Sima Yi and wipe him out. Oh, and you can't be killed by Guan Yu's water attack, after you get up to higher grounds, the water will kick in and anybody below dies. At this point, a bunch of Wu troops will show up and attack, and they are pretty good, you could just kill Lu Meng, and all of Wu will retreat. Its your choice, or you can just advance to Sima Yi, and defeat him to win the stage. Allies Side: This stage is pretty much a push over after Reinforcements arrive. Move to Guan Ping and kill him, and take down some of his troops if possible. Soon a water attack from Guan Yu will take plkace, and you'll lose some guys, thats ok, Wu will save the day soon. Once Guan Ping is gone, go after Guan Yu, but take out his gate captains first.. then him. -------------------------- 219 A.D. The Battle of Mt. Ding Jun Shu vs Wei -------------------------- Played By Shu Forces: Liu Bei, Zhao Yun, Huang Zhong Wei Forces: Cao Cao, Xiahou Yuan, Zhang He Shu Forces: This stage is just self explainitory. Go down the hills and beat Xiahou Yuan and Zhang He. But be careful, you dont wanna hit the spikes because your going downhill, and those spikes do a good amount of damage. Early in the battle, Huang Zhong fires an arrow at Xiahou Yuan's troops in a cutscene, and their morale drops, which is good for you. Anyway, after you killed Xiahou Yuan and Zhang He, move through the troops of Cao Cao, and just send Cao Cao to the ground. Wei Forces: This is pretty much the same as Shu's point of view. You fight Huang Zhong and Liu Bei, and as your moving towards Liu Bei, Zhou Yun will show up and help his lordship out. Watch out for the enemy archers in the towers. Also, really soon in the battle, Huang Zhong will fire an arrow at Xiahou Yuan, but it barely misses him and hits a Sergeant, Xiahou Yuan gets mad and his force morale drops. Nothing you can really do to prevent it. Kill Huang Zhong, advance, go back and kill Zhou Yun and his ambush party, go to Liu Bei, pass him up and then kill the gate captains, then finish off Liu Bei. --------------------- 222 A.D. The Battle at Yi Ling Shu vs Wu --------------------- Played By Shu Forces: Liu Bei, Zhuge Liang Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Zhao Yun, Ma Chao, Huang Zhong, Wei Yan, Jiang Wei, and Pang Tong Wu Forces: Sun Jian, Sun Ce, Sun Quan, Sun Shang Xiang, Zhou Yu, Lu Xun, Taishi Ci, Gan Ning, Huang Gai, Da Qiao, Xiao Qiao and Lu Meng Shu Forces: This is a hard level, from both armies. Early on Lu Xun will see that Zhuge Liang isn't there (Unless he IS there, with you playing as him). But then it will say either Zhu Ran or Lu Xun is preparing for the fire attack. You now will have to jack a horse, or run fast to Zhu Ran (Check the start menu map under undit info to find where his unit is) Rush there and kill him, or find Lu Xun and kill him. He is hard though. If he is successful with the fire attack, your kinda screwed, I beat it the first time playing it with the fire attack (On easy) but I was lucky because I had already killed Gan Ning and Lu Meng at the time. Also, an ambush party will appear near Liu Bei. Once you've haulted the fire attack attack, you can begin the business of taking out Sun Quan's other minions. Watch out for Lu Xun, as he's stronger than normal in this stage. Most of the other generals are pretty strong too, and I found Lu Meng harder than Sun Quan. Lu Xun is pretty tough to beat, so give it your all, as you have to defeat him to advance to Sun Quan. If you take out the other generals, you'll have more people facing Sun Quan, which is a great thing. Shu Side: On the Wu side, your doing just about the same thing. Make sure the fire attack comes through or your gonna be in trouble. Kill the general nearest you. Now you have to wipe out every general except Liu Bei and Zhuge Liang. Its hard, but it must be done. There are several archers in towers, which isn't a good thing. Dont fight Zhuge Liang and Liu Bei until all of the gates have been secured and those two are the only left. Now, your troops will close in, Take out Zhuge Liang or Liu Bei. I'd reccommend Zhuge Liang first, then finish off Liu Bei. If you've killed everyone else, you should have no problem with Liu Bei and Zhuge Liang. ---------------- 225 A.D. Nanman Campaign Shu/Wu vs Nanman ---------------- Played By Shu Forces: Zhuge Liang, Liu Bei, Zhang Fei,Ma Chao, Zhou Yun, Pang Tong, and Jiang Wei Wu Forces: Sun Jian, Sun Quan, Sun Ce, Zhou Yu, Lu Xun, Taishi Ci, Sun Shang Xiang, Xiao Qiao, and Gan Ning Shu/Wu Forces: This is a LONG stage if you don't know what your doing, even sometimes if you DO know what your doing. You will have to fight Meng Huo 7 times to "break his spirit". However, if you go to the bottom, left hand side of the map, Menh Huo and his unit will appear in a stronghold camp like thing. But, its better you fight him seven times to prepare for your last battles, as this is one of your last ones. And, theres plenty of enemy officers to beat, and Meng Huo will usually appear near them. By doing this, you will get a bigger fleet to charge Meng Huo and Zhu Rong at the end of the battle. The Nanman elite (Guys with wooden hats) can't be shot with arrows. Also, you'll need an elephant some point in this battle. You can just shoot an arrow at them, or use the wing boots, and have a high jumping character reach up there. There are also certain wooden walls you'll need to break with the elephants to get to Meng Huo. Once you get near Meng Huo's base for the final battle, you'll have to deal with his wife, Zhu Rong. Be aware, she is tough, so beat her with lots if troops backing you up, and advance on Meng Huo. If you want, take out the archers, because there's alot of them in towers. Nanman Forces: This stage is tough, and Meng Huo dosen't have to get beaten 7 times, he's only got to lose once. About 10-15 minutes into the fight, two coward officers will meet, and retreat, which really throws your morale down, but it should come up if you have officers to back your team up. Once you've beaten everyone else, head to enemy HQ for a battle with Zhuge Liang. Kill the gate captains to the right and left of their HQ. When you enter the gates, fire arrows are shot at your troops, which lowers your morale again.. But, Zhuge Liang shouldn't be too hard to beat if you've taken out most of the Shu troops. ------------------ 228 A.D. Battle of Jie Ting Shu vs Wei ------------------ Played By Shu Forces: Liu Bei, Zhuge Liang, Wei Yan,and Jiang Wei Wei Forces: Sima Yi, Xiahou Dun and Zhang He Shu Side: This stage is basically a rumble, and a rumble that needs to be beaten. During the fight, Ma Su will disobey your orders, climb to the mountain's, go save his worthless ass, you'll want him for Sima Yi. During this fight you'll encounter Zhen Ji, Zhang He, and a couple no- names. Beat them and take down Cao Cao/Sima Yi. Zhao Yun will also reinforce you sometime in the battle. There are a lot of archers towards the end too so get pissed off now, not when playing the battle. Sima Yi is waiting with three gate captains, but all around, Shu has more troops, unless Ma Su dies. Wei Side: Basically the same except your in the moutains, and defending Sima Yi. Its basically the same as I said, so just rampage down the mountain and kill officers, and dont hesitate to take out Zhuge Liang or Zhou Yun will appear, which isn't good. ------------------ 228 A.D. Battle at You Ting Wei vs Wu ------------------ Played By Wei Forces: Dian Wei, Zhen Ji Wu Forces: Sun Jian, Sun Quan, Lu Xun, Huang Gai Wei Forces: This stage can be really tough if you dont kill quickly. Everybody sorta sucks here, I mean, their trying their best, and they failed Miserably.. the lesson here is to never try, ok, enough with the Simpsons, its time for you to take action. Go to the left fort side or right fort side, take out some troops and then the enemy general troops. Make sure you dont fight Diao Qiao and Xiao Qiao at the same time. These ladies are quick and will put up a fight. Soon into the battle, Zhou Fang will defect to Wu. Your not in trouble if you've kept the forts on your side. If both forts fell to Wu, stand by the gate leading to Sima Yi and protect it with your life, should people already be inside the gate, you failed, restart. Unless you are great at this game then dont restart, but you'll probably have to deal with Sun Quan, his sister, and everybody who you didn't kill. If you've protected the forts, take out Zhou Fang quickly,then go around the map, and take out the gate captain in the back. Now come back to the heart of the battle (The Middle) and take out Sun Quan. Wu Forces: A good way to win is to storm through the middle, and taking out everyone and attack both forts from behind. Go to the west or east base, though the west Base has a no name officer, while the east one has Zhang He and Zhen Ji around. Go whatever way you want.. Both sides also have archers.. many archers. Once you've taken out one fort, head across the map to take out the other. You must do this quickly to gain the advantage, otherwise Sima Yi will know Zhou Fang is gonna go defect to your side. When you take out both towers, Zhou Fang will defect to your side. Since you'll have taken out the middle, everyone should be storming Sima Yi.The enemy will get reinforcements, but it's not too big. Once you've taken care of all the enemies, you can proceed to the Wei base to take out Sima Yi. You'll meet Xu Zhu's fat self along the way, so waste that fool. Sima Yi has 3 gate, take them out should you want to, which I would reccomend. ---------------- 234 A.D. The Siege of He Fei Castle Wei vs Wu ---------------- Played By Wei Forces: Cao Cao, Sima Yi, Dian Wei, Xu Zhu, Zhen Ji, Zhang He and Zhang Liao Wu Forces: Da Qiao, Huang Gai, Lu Meng, Sun Quan, Sun Jian, Sun Shang Xiang, Lu Xun, Gan Ning Wei Side: No matter what anybody says... this stage is TOUGH. It even took me awhile to beat when I first played this game. Its pretty much you vs. Wu, because Wei isb basically getting their butt kicked through- out this whole battle. Also, DO NOT USE THE STONE BRIDGE. That triggers tons of Wu archers which is horrible for this tough stage. And theres some fool running around trying to steal the name Zhen Ji, he's a no- name officer. Kill that Zhen Ji poser first, since he's the first guy you'll run into. Now, the hard part of the battle. You enter the heart of the battle, the center. There you do the hardest part, Kill Lu Meng, Lu Xun and Sun Shang Xiang quickly. Take one out after another, you'll meet Lu Xun first, so fight him, win. Then you'll run into either Sun Shang Xiang or Lu Meng, either way, its gonna be hard, if your hurt from fighting Lu Xun, retreat and stand back for a little bit, clear out some troops. Then when you get life, attack Lu Meng and Sun Shang Xiang, As your fighting them, Zhuge Jin and Sun Shao will arrive, dont worry, their not too good and it'll take a bit to have them get to you. Now, after you've killed Lu Xun,Lu Meng and SSX, Gan Ning will make his way over there, should he not, you go to him and kill him. Now, reinforcements will arrive, and you've got it in the bag.. every gate will open and Sima Yi orders you to charge. Do so, and move towards Sun Shao and Zhuge Jin who should be around where Gan Ning was. Kill em, move to Sun Quan and defeat him, Wei is victorious..... for now. Wu Side: Wu has the advantage in this battle. Start the battle off by making your way to the left side, taking out whoever gets in your way. You find Zhen Ji around, or somebody. Kill them, and move to the heart, and kill everybody, I guess its about the same as Wei's side. Just kill, kill, KILL! You have a good advantage in this battle, so once every officer is wiped out, move to Sima Yi, who shouldn't be too much of a problem. ---------FinalBattle--------- 234 A.D. The Battle at Wu Zhang Plains Shu vs Wei ---------FinalBattle--------- Played By Shu: Liu Bei,Zhuge Liang,Ma Chao Zhao Yun,Wei Yan, Guan Yu, Jiang Wei and Huang Zhong, Wei: Sima Yi, Cao Cao, Xiahou Dun, Xiahou Yuan, Xu Huang, Xu Zhu, and Zhang He My Point of View: Well.. I dont think you should use a Walkthrough for the final stage. I know, I sound like those strategy guides.. but its the last stage. Why have me ruin everything that happens here. Oh well.. its your choice. Here it is. Shu Side: The final battle. You have more troops and Zhuge Liang is completely surrounded by Shu troops. Either Sima Yi or Cao Cao will be the target, depending on who you are. If you have Liu Bei, Cao Cao will appear, and along with Sima Yi, that makes the fight even tougher. Take your time and beat like every general so you can reach Sima Yi/Cao Cao and win the battle. Unlike Wei's side however,Shu's fort is protected, but it DOES get hit with Catapults, which isn't good. Wei: If you're playing as Cao Cao here, you are commander, otherwise Sima Yi is. One thing going for you on this stage is that Zhuge Liang is the boss, unless your Cao Cao, then Liu Bei is the boss, and Zhuge Liang is an officer. Take out the general around where you start, and protect Sima Yi or Cao Cao's base. Then move towards Shu HQ, go through its slowly, and take out Zhuge Liang/Liu Bei 7. 4th Weapon Strategies NOTE: To get the character's final weapon you must play the level on HARD difficulty. ----------- SHU (Green) ----------- Character: Zhao Yun Stage: Chang Ban Force: Shu How to get it: Defeat Xiahou Dun and Zhang Liao.

Getting Items ------------- Regular Items ------------- Speed Scroll - Increases Speed This is good for slow running people such as Xu Zhu,Meng Huo, if you have a fast person, you wont need it really. Wing Boots - Increases Jump Height This is really not to great of an item. The only time you'll need it possibly is to take out people on Elephants. Dragon Amulet - Increase Musou Maximum This item isn't too great. If you like strong and long Musou, I'd suggest you get a good one such at +40. Peacock Urn - Increases HP A good item for tough stages. Especially useful when its in a high range. Tiger Amulet - Increases Attack Power Its good for a weak character, and really good when its high or to its max. But when your character is strong, its not all that great for use at all. Tortoise Amulet - Increases Defense Brings up your defense. Better than the tiger amulet in battle, so its a good thing to use. Huang Bow - Better Bow attack Power Good for taking out archers on level with many archers, or just to snipe someone out. Not too great, and theres better items than this bow. Shell Armor - Increases Bow Defense Good for people who hate archers (like me). I like this item pretty much, it comes in handy alot. Horned Helm - Stronger Mounted Attack Good for people who like to attack on horses. Even though horses arent all that good, it comes in handy if its at a strong level (over +20). Calvary Armor - Mounted Defense Stronger Not too great. If you get hit, you get knocked off the horse anyway, so theirs no real point for this item anyway. Seven Star Orb - Increases Luck Luck is said to give you better items, but I dont know if its true or not. It does make officers drop more health items like meat buns, which can come in handy. Wind Scroll - Increases Reach This helps increase the length you can attack with. Its very rare, so you'll have to fight somewhat to get it. Elixir - Increase Musou Charge Speed When you press circle when you dont have musou, or get hit, your musou goes up alot quicker, great for people who like to charge through fast. Special Items Hex Mark Saddle - Start Battle Mounted On a Hex Mark Getting It: Kill every enemy general at Chen Du except Liu Zhang. It will be in a box near Liu Zhang, most likely in the corner.

Buckler - Never overpowered when blocking (using L1) At He Fei, Wu side, Wait for Taishi Ci to be assassinated by Zhang Liao's archers, then retreat with Sun Quan, Zhang Liao will then attack, kill him and he will drop the Buckler. Power Scroll - Wont lose when locking weapons At He Fei, Wei Side. First you must get Zhang Liao to assassinate Taishi Ci, then defeat other officers in the center square, and eventually, Zhang Liao will leave for a surprise attack on Sun Quan. Right after this attack, Gan Ning will jump out of a ditch near Wei HQ, beat him and you'll get it.

About me. So? You want to know about me, do ya? Well, My name is Patrick Glen Lowery. I am 15 years old and I go to St. Francis High school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I'm currently a Sophmore and will graduate in the year 2006. I do Cross Country and Track, both of which I enjoy very much, although I like Track more, it's less running. Anyway, I was born 1987, so if you read this FAQ in 2010 or something, don't be like "OMG THIS WAS WRITTEN BY A 5 YEAR OLD!" Because it wasn't. This Walkthrough was written when I was in 8th grade, at the age of 14. *Sigh*, I was quite the n00b back then. 13.
