     I - Introduction
       I1 - About the guide
    Join with friends on an epic rock journey to save rock n’ roll. 
    Featuring an impressive 90+ track set list, a totally redesigned 
    rock-inspired guitar controller and a host of all-new gameplay 
    features, living room legends and their friends can strum, drum and 
    wail in the most immersive music videogame experience to date. 
    (Official game description)
    I've been a huge fan of the Guitar Hero series since the begin, and I
    think warriors of rock is the best one yet. Thats why I'm writing 
    this guide, to give help to others that are new to the game and to 
    help experienced players on some tricky tasks.
    Anyway... n'uff said. Let's crack on.
       I2 - Terminology
    GH   - Guitar hero 
    WoR  - Warriors of Rock
    FC   - Full Combo. This is when you hit 100% of the notes in a song
           without overstrumming. 
    Strum     - Pressing the strum bar to hit a note
    Alt Strum - Strum up and down during fast sections
    HOPOs     - Hammer-ons and Pull-offs. HOPOs are notes that don't require
                you to strum, you just need to hit the previous note then
                hit the correct fret.
    Sustain   - A note that is strummed and held down for a while.
    Tapping   - Using 2 hands on the frets to FC tricky solos. A good 
                example of tapping is the intro to Through the Fire and
                Flames on GH3 (expert) ... look it up on youtube.
    SP        - Star Power
    Note Chart- The pattern notes appear during a song.
    SP Path   - A specific method of activating SP to achieve the highest
                possible score.
    Scorehero - Scorehero.com is an awesome website where people document
                their scores on GH. 
    Sightread - The first ever time you play a song.
    Squeezing - This is how you get the most points from a notes timing 
                window. You activate SP as late as possible during a notes
                timing window, though still hitting that note. You then hit
                the last note before SP runs out nice and early, 'squeezing'
                it in during SP.
     BB - Basics for Beginners
       BB1 - Tutorials
    If you're new to GH the best thing you can do is get straight into the 
    tutorials. Playing the game with extremely helpful commentary is the 
    best way to learn. It'll guide you through the absolute basics; hitting
    notes, sustains, chords and HOPOs.
       BB2 - Controllers
    The GH guitar has 5 frets, a strum bar, a whammy bar and It's wireless.
    The WoR guitar is designed to look heavy metal, and to tie in with the 
    over-the-top quest.
    The drum set is made up of 6 components; 2 symbols, 3 drums, and a kick
    pedal. Most people find playing with the pedal a real challenge, as it's
    hard to keep 2 rythms going at once. You can turn on 'auto-kick' in the
    extras menu.
    The microphone ... well, uh ... you sing into it ... and you hit the 
    top to activate SP. That's all I got.
       BB3 - Star Power
    SP is a key element in GH. To achieve SP you must FC at least 2 SP 
    phases, you can then fill the SP meter by FCing 2 more SP phases.
    This'll make your SP last longer. Alternatively, you can use the 
    whammy bar to increase SP during sustains in SP phases. 
    You can use SP to acheive a higher score by using a path. Or, you can
    save it up and use it to help you pass tricky solos.
     T - Tips and tricks
        T1 - Using your pinky
    When you're ready to hit medium mode the blue not comes into play 
    and therefore so does your pinky finger.
    If you're are progressing from easy to medium you're most likely to 
    find it quite difficult. The only way to improve is practice. Start 
    out on the easier songs and get used to using your pinky.
    You might consider ignoring your pinky and just sliding across to the
    blue note, and although this would work fine I suggest against it.
    The reason for this is simple; when you start nailing medium mode and
    want to progress to hard the dreaded orange note gets involved. You
    won't be able to slide from yellow to orange. You'll need to slide 
    from blue to orange with your pinky.
        T2 - Hammer-ons/Pull-offs
    Keep your eye out for HOPOs during a song, they're similar to normal
    notes except they have a plain white center. You don't need to strum
    them, as long as you strum the previous note and hit the next note
    with correct timing it'll register. 
    During long guitar solos on higher difficulties you'll get a string
    of HOPOs, with the difficult phases you can even giving tapping a go.
        T3 - Hyperspeed
    Hyperspeed was a cheat in earlier versions of GH, but in WoR you
    can set it without entering any cheat code. What it essentially
    does is increase the speed at which the notes come towards you, but
    at the same time it increases the distance in between each note. 
    Although the notes come at you faster, because of the increased 
    distance inbetween each note you don't play the song at any faster
    pace. Most people find using hyperspeed easier as they identify
    each note quicker and easier.
    To activate hyperspeed go to extras in the band lobby, you can turn
    it on there and choose from 5 different levels - 1 being a slight 
    increase in speed, 5 being ridiculously fast. Level 3 is my 
    personal preference.

     Q - Quest
        Q1 - Quest mode
    A new edition to WoR is Quest mode. It introduces a more story driven
    aspect to GH. I won't spoil anything for you, but in short, you have
    to assemble an army of rock warriors to defeat a bad guy. I must say
    I was skeptical about the Quest mode but it's a really fun way to
    unlock new songs.

         S6 - Savior of Rock 
    Defeat the scourge of Rock (Quest)
         S7 - Adept Astrologer 
    Earn a total of 1000 Stars (Quickplay+)
    This'll take time, go for the other trophies and you'll eventually
    get it!
         S8 - Perfect Perfectionist 
    Earn all the Power Stars from all character chapters (Quest)
    Toughhh... takes some time. Play in easy and just grind out
    allllll the stars. Be patient.
         S9 - String Twins 
    Complete a song with only a Guitarist and Bassist, both 
    earning the same score (Quickplay+)
    This trophy is ridiculous.... thank **** for GHTunes!
    Search 'String twins' and download the song of your choice, play it,
    and the trophy will be yours.
         S10 - Chosen One 
    Beat Fury of the Storm as a solo Drummer on Hard or higher 
    difficulty (Quickplay+)
    The only advice I can give is practice. This is a seriously tough
    song, and, unless you are a good drummer, will cause you serious
    problems. If you really want this trophy, you're gonna have to
    put some serious practice time in.
         S11 - Hand Multiplier 
    Beat Black Widow of La Porte as a solo Expert Guitarist 
    (Quickplay+, except Power Challenges)
    Save up all the SP you can and hold on to it, when/if you're in
    the red and think you're on the verge of failure activate.
    But again, practice makes perfect :)
         S12 - Giant Slayer 
    Beat Holy Wars...The Punishment Due as a solo Bassist on Hard
    or higher difficulty (Quickplay+)
    Same advice as above, hold on to SP untill you need it! This 
    isn't too hard as 'Hand Multiplier' as it's not required to
    be done on expert, hard will do nicely. This song, however,
    is one of the hardest on the bass. It's also awesome :)
         S13 - Seasoned Competitor 
    Play Pro Faceoff, Momentum, Momentum+, Streakers, Do or Die,
    and Perfectionist at least once each (Competitive)
    Easy... you don't have to win/pass, you just have to play it.
       G - Gold Trophies
    There's only one! :O
         G1 - Ace Astrologer 
    Earn a total of 2000 Stars (Quickplay+) 
    This'll take a while, just go for the other trophies and you
    should get close to 2000 stars. It may take you some
    serious extra hours with the axe though.
        P - Platinum
    Collect all the above!
    Congrats, you just got all trophies in GH:WoR
