Introduction ______________________________________________________________________________ - The purpose of this guide was to provide all gamers with one source for the requirements to collect all characters personal items (PI). - The information contained in this guide was gathered from posts by GameFAQs members such as Cheng, Uzume, opfer_gv & others. - I have only gathered the general requirements to get each character's PI, not in-depth step-by-step walkthroughs. For in-depth help, please consult the Warriors Orochi Message Board. Wherever possible, however, I've listed some helpful tips including item locations, time limits, etc. - Do to the difficulty of obtaining certain characters' items, namely Mitsuhide Akechi, Nobunaga Oda & Lu Bu, I have posted recommended methods for these characters. There is no plan at this time to add methods for all characters. - Please note, I have not personally confirmed all of these methods. Again, if you experience any trouble or need help in any way, please consult the Warriors Orochi Message Board on GameFAQs. Alternatively, you can visit the following JP sites: http://orochi.sasugawiki.com/ http://yumiyari.com/musouclub/musouorochi/ Most of the methods listed in this guide came from translation of these (& possibly other) sites by members of the GameFAQs community. - Every effort has been made, and continues to be made, to make sure that the EXACT requirements are listed. This is not an easy task as it involves thorough testing of requirements that were originally written for the import version, Musou Orochi. With that said, there may be some characters that have more than the necessary requirements listed. In those cases, following the guide should still get you the item. - The characters are grouped according to their "new" WO affiliation (e.g. Hanzo Hattori is listed w/ Wu), roughly in the order in which they are unlocked/available by stage. Also, despite traditional naming conventions, I have arranged names in the order they would appear in the game (e.g. Lu Bu & Sakon Shima) (sorry BlackKite/The Giant Hoeruo) - How to read this guide: Example: Sun Ce (Wu Story 4) - The Sun Bin Scrolls --> Required stage & Item Name Within 5 minutes, do the following: --> Time requirement (if needed) • Rescue Sun Jian • Defeat Pang De --> Requirements (generally these • Defeat 500 (no time limit) are in the order of fulfillment) Note: Item will be at Cao Ren's main camp. --> General notes, tips ______________________________________________________________________________ 3. Personal Items ______________________________________________________________________________ a. General Info - Enhances type action for that character (R1 abilities enhanced) + 4th Gallery picture - Can be obtained on ANY difficulty level in either Free or Story mode - You CAN obtain certain characters personal items at the same time - When you have completed the requirements successfully, you will receive "A unique item has reportedly been discovered! Hurry to claim it!" - The item location can be found by checking the history and highlighting the "unique item" message - The color of the boxes may differ from the JP import version. I tried to verify the colors today for both SW & DW characters. For both, I got a black box with golden trim. Previously, I got items from a box that looks like Goemon's treasure boxes in Shu 4-X. In any case, the box will look different than the ones normally lying around the levels. Break it open to reveal the ITEM bag icon. - To verify that you have the item, you can check the lower right-hand corner of the Team Info screen (select the character) & it will display the unique item & its name. Also, on the character select screen, a little box shows up to the right of the character model icons. Finally, the 4th picture in the Gallery will show up once you have the item. ****************************************************************************** b.

Other Characters Zuo Ci (Wei Story 8) - The Treasury of Tao • Defeat Lu Bu • Defeat 300 Note: Item appears in the northwest fort Tadakatsu Honda (Sengoku Story 7) - Deerhorn Helmet • Defeat all enemy officers (except Da Ji) • Kenshin Uesugi, Shingen Takeda & Kanetsugu Naoe must survive • Defeat 300 Note: Your allies can steal officer KOs. Item will appear near Da Ji. Lu Bu (Wu Gaiden 8-X) - Hero's Armor Within 9 minutes, do the following: • Defeat 1000 Note: For the JP version, the easiest way to do this is to use Sakon Shima's grab glitch on Masamune & the guard captain near him. For the US/EU version, it is easier to use 2P & combine KO counts. Recommended Method for 1P from JFunk_316: Requirements: Really just Impulse (speed) 20, & hopefully your character speed is maxed as well. Move to use: Just one, his C4 with maxed range I hope (Bolt & Flash definitely help) Objective: Ultimately get to Masamune's base & get around 650 KOs in 4.5 minutes When you start the battle, go up & defeat the first 15 troopers you see, then turn left at the top, & wipe out everything you see that comes with Lu Kuang, Chen Lan, & Lei Bo in that order ASAP. Work your way to the left bottom corner take out the base captain. However, leave Sidewinder alive, in fact, completely ignore him. When you reach the bottom, Lu Xun will join your squad, let the A.I. take care of him. I will explain shortly why you must do this. Once the base captain in the bottom is gone, run or ride a fast horse, whichever you prefer & get to Cao Xing on the top FAST. Defeat anything that comes to you, but don't go out of your way to defeat one or two, its not worth it. At this point, you pretty much fight your way up to the area where the defense captain is holding the entrance to Lu Bu's area. Of course you want to ignore them, but in that area, I believe there are 3 generals with good amount of troops, you can get a few quickies in before the next step. As I said earlier, to keep Sidewinder alive on the bottom for Lu Xun, the reason why that is a must is because it buys you time to get from the bottom to the top & anything you defeat along the way. If you defeat the bottom 4 generals ASAP, Sakon Shima will send out the engineers right away which forces Masamune to charge, this is not the best way to maximize the onslaught at his base. You shouldn't over kill at the top area, just whatever comes at you or around you, unless the enemies in the next area comes to you, don't go for them if you can. On this stage, time is your only enemy keep that in mind. The next step is crucial in my strategy, it is the key to your success or failure. As you run to Masamune's base, you will come across Tsunenaga Hasekura, you should annihilate him and all his man, but more importantly, this is precisely the time where you want Sakon Shima to send his engineers. If Sakon sends the engineers too soon, Masamune will take all the soldiers from that base to the frontline which lessens the respawn rate of the that base, if he sends them too late, you will have to waste time wait for him to leave. If you time it perfectly, you should run into that base just as Masamune is out, so that you can lure the base captain away & start to build up your KO. I would recommend you to have around 325-350 KOs & time around 56-55.45, otherwise you would have a difficult time to get enough KOs in time. On top of that, when the base respawns at full capacity, you should get 2 sets of footmen & 1 set of the blueish servant of the serpent king. That means 15 of them must come out continuously from the very start, if not, you have no chance. According to my calculation, you can get about 150-160 KOs per minute if all of them regenerate. Some of you might be wondering why all of a sudden that base stops sending out troops, that is because Masamune has broke through the coalition frontline & took over a base down there, if he gets in too deep his men will no longer respawn from that base. I actually got mine on hard, because you can build up bigger KOs easier before you even reach Masamune's base. I wouldn't really recommend doing this on Easy, at least Normal. However, it could work. I tried it on Easy, & got around 950 KOs in 9 minutes. Da Ji (Sengoku Gaiden 2-X) - Sacrificial Alter • Defeat enemy reinforcements (Ieyasu Tokugawa & Dong Zhuo) • Defeat 200 • Defeat Sima Yi Note: When the gate to Sima's camp opens, make sure that you defeat him before the peasants escape or the stage will end. Item appears north of the peasant's escape point.

History [PIAFAQ] This section was created to provide a link to the Personal Item Analysis FAQ by Roahm Mythril. Basically, if you're interested in the history behind the names of the Personal Items, his guide provides plenty of information for each character. He also sites his sources of information in case you wish to do further research. It's a shame his guide was not able to be posted to GameFAQs since it is very informative, well organized & well written. I encourage all readers of this guide to check out the link below: http://www.dragonsoftstudio.com/personal/wo_pi_analysis_faq.txt If you would like to contribute to his FAQ, Roahm has listed ways to get in touch with him in his FAQ. I hope you enjoy reading it as I have! ______________________________________________________________________________ 4. FAQ/Credits/Copyright/Disclaimer ______________________________________________________________________________ Frequently Asked Questions: Q. What difficulty does it have to be to get personal items? A. You can obtain personal items on ANY difficulty level but keep in mind that sometimes an easier difficulty means that your allies can die faster due to having shorter life bars. Q. Can these be unlocked in Free mode? A. Yes, personal items can be obtained playing either Story or Free mode. Q. Do you need to only use the character you're getting the personal item for? A. Yes, for completing certain requirements such as if it says to defeat certain officers or defeat a certain amount of people, then you need to use that character. Certain characters need to trigger events & that can be done using another character. Also, for KO requirements, you can use 2P to help (e.g. Lu Bu 1000 KOs can be 600 for 1P + 400 for 2P). Q. How do you know you have the person’s PI? A. First, you will receive a "unique item" message when you have successfully completed the requirements. Then you have to locate the item on the map & break open the box to collect the item bag. After the level is complete, it will display the name of the item & tell you that your character's abilities have been enhanced. After that, you can see the unique item listed under the Team Info screen in the bottom right corner or on the character select screen there will be a box to the right of the character model icons. Q. I got the unique item message but I can't find the item? A. Check the history & highlight the unique item message for the location Q. Are you not allowed to load interim saves while getting a personal item? A. No, you CAN use the interim save feature at any time while obtaining a character's personal item. Saving either before or after receiving the "unique item" message does not reset your progress, so you should still be able to retrieve the personal item successfully. Q. I can't complete the requirements in time because people keep talking. A. The Pause feature is your friend. If time is an issue & there are a lot of conversations or messages appearing on screen, pausing during a speech will allow the voices to continue while stopping the timer. Also, certain characters talk less than others, such as Wei Yan. Q. The FAQ is wrong again, someone needs to update it. A. Many apologies for the inconvenience, but with 79 characters and many thousands of people playing this game right now, someone is going to find something wrong at some point in time. I'll continue to update this as I am able to, & thanks again to Uzume, opfer_gv & everyone else who has provided the correct methods when the guide is in need of updating. Q. Can you get multiple personal items in the same stage? A. Yes, you can. Zhao Yun & Yukimura Sanada is a good example. I will leave the rest to you to figure out, though :) ****************************************************************************** Credits: First of all, to KOEI for creating this awesome game.
