7). ITEMS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

     All the information on the regular level up items to the requirements on
getting all the Special Items and Harnesses.

--------------------
I. Orbs
--------------------

Orbs are elemental attacks added to all your charge attacks. Your Musou gauge
must be full in order to perform the elemental attack or if you have your level
10 weapon you may perform elemental attacks anytime. All Orbs' max level is 4
and here are the description of the different Orbs.

Fire Orb - Adds a Fire element that burns the enemy slowly taking damage from
your enemy.
Level effect - The Higher the level the more damage the Fire will do to the
enemy.

Lightning Orb - Adds a Lightning Bolt in the middle of the attack, the closer
the enemy is to the middle bolt, the more damage done.
Level effect - The higher the level the more damage the middle bolt will do.

Vorpal Orb - Adds a Death attack that can instantly kill an enemy soldier in
one single blow, adds powerful damage to enemy officers.
Level effect - The higher the level the more chance the death attack will take
place on an enemy, more damage to officers too.

Ice Orb - Adds an Ice attack that will freeze an enemy if hit by a charge
attack, opponent stays frozen for a certain amount of time no matter the level.
Level effect - The higher level the more chance of freezing an enemy goes up,
now it will freeze an enemy about 75% of the time.

Blast Orb - Adds a Blast attack to your charged attacks that will break through
blocks.
Level effect - The higher the level the more chance of breaking through a
block, a hint using this Orb is while using Cao Cao, Sima Yi, Zhou Yu, Lu Xun,
Lu Meng, Da Qiao, Zhuge Liang, Jiang Wei, or Pang Tong playing at Hu Lao Gate,
you can easily defeat Lu Bu if you use your T attack over and over and over,
but make sure your musou gauge is full. Thanks to Joe The Gamer for that tip.

Poison Orb - Adds a Poison Attack to your charged attacks that while the enemy
is Poisoned the damage the enemy is doubled, not very useful, but works perfect
for Lu Bu's SSSSSTTT.
Level effect - The higher the level you have the longer the enemy will stay
Poisoned.

9). EASY ITEMS TRICKS
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     Here's some tips on getting higher level items and orbs faster. I got all
lvl. 20 items and lvl. 4 orbs except Elixir, Wing Boots, and Vorpal orb in two
days using these tricks(mostly Wu Zhang Plains), so good luck and here are the
tips.


Wu Zhang Plains (Shu Forces)

Ok, there are five item boxes in this level and they are:

#1. Southeast corner, top right corner of that circled area.

#2. Outside of Zhuge Liangs fort, along the left wall.

#3. By Zhang He's initial position, going up the path to get to the top castle.

#4. Along the center path, South of Xiahou Yuan's initial position.

#5. Right beside Cao Cao after he arrives as reinforcements.

Ok, the main trick is to collect them in order, #1 and #2 doesn't matter which
one you do first. Then go to #3. and after the Sima Yi enraged cut-scene, Zhuge
Liang will fake his death that will cause Sima Yi to charge and all the gates
will open, get #4. Then wait at the very top of the map, and when Sima Yi
returns after he sees Zhuge Liang is still alive, Cao Cao will arrive as
reinforcements. Defeat all the soldiers as necessary, then deplete Cao Cao's
life as low as you can and save it BEFORE you get #5. Load it up again and get
the item and finish off Cao Cao. If nothing that you receive pleases you then
soft-select(Select + Start) and load it up again. Repeat until you receive an
item that you need or want.
Note: If you deplete his life low enough then after you load it up again just
knocking him off his horse will kill him.


Yi Ling (Wu Forces)

There are 5 items from five different generals or sub-generals, but to finish
this fast just do the requirements. I actually don't find this trick as useful
as Wu Zhang Plains, but that's just me. Ok, Ride your horse or run to Ma Liang,
kill Ma Liang, and clear out all Liu Bei's guards or anyone else in that area.
Deplete Liu Bei's life as low as possible. Go to Wang Ping and kill all his
guards, lure him as close to Liu Bei as possible, then defeat Wang Ping, save
BEFORE getting the item, load the game up and get the item, finish of Liu Bei,
if what you get doesn't please you, just soft reset(Select + Start) and load it
up again and so forth.


Jie Ting (Shu Forces)

This seems to be the level that gives the most Orbs, now that's just a random
thought so don't take it seriously. Ok, Go to Sima Yi and kill all his guards
and any troops that may be in the way, then deplete his life as low as
possible. Go back and lure Xu Huang down to where Jia Kui is. Defeat Jia Kui
but don't get his item box he dropped yet! Then quickly defeat Xu Huang, save
the game, continue it and pick up both items, proceed to Sima Yi and defeat
Sima Yi.
Note: This may be a good choice as it provides two different items each time
you re-load it. Also try to get Xu Huang and Jia Kui as close as possible so it
makes it quicker.

I. Wei Musou Mode
--------------------


----------
-Act I-
A Hero of Chaos
----------


The Yellow Turban Menace (Han Forces)

Difficulty: **
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +4, Defense +4, Items x1

My Method: At the start you will start at the left side of the map. Your
commander is Huangfu Song inside the middle castle and the enemy commander is
Zhang Liang. There are many ways to completed this level in many different
methods. It will take a lot of speed to both defeat all enemy generals and to
get to your commander and protect him, here's what I recommend you do for this
battle when playing on Cao Cao's East side of the map. Ok, go South and defeat
Gao Sheng guarding the South Gate to the castle. Now the South gate is cleared
of enemies, now go and defeat Guan Hai at the East side of the castle, and move
north to defeat Liu Pi afterward. Now, travel back to the West of the map and
defeat Deng Mao and Huang Shao, now during this, a rainstorm will be summoned
by Zhang Liang(enemy commander) inside the castle. Huangfu Song will announce
he will join the battle and the first minute will get ambushed by He Yi inside
the castle. You must assist Huangfu Song right away by locating him on the map
and travelling to him. Defeat He Yi once there and accompany him outside the
Northeast entrance to the castle. Once Huangfu Song exits the castle another
ambush led by Yan Zheng will be afoot. Defeat Yan Zheng and now Huangfu Song
will be safe without your presance. You may now make your way up towards Zhang
Liang, once in the top area, you might as well get the Life up and Musou up.
Each one is at the bottom left squared area and bottom right squared area. Now,
if you wish to have Zhang Liang presant at The Yellow Turban Rebellion not not
defeat him and defeat his sub-general, Han Xian. If you wish to defeat Zhang
Liang now, he will not appear at The Yellow Turban Rebellion.


The Yellow Turban Fortress (Han Forces)

Difficulty: **
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +3, Defense +3, Items x1

My Method: You will begin this stage inside the Northeastern castle when
playing as a Wei character. In this level your commander is Zhu Jun and enemy
commander is Zhang Bao. In this level there aren't many generals, but this
level does provide lots of KOs. Again, there are lots of different ways to
completed this level, but I find the way I am about to describe the most
helpful. First, defeat as many soldiers as you please before defeating He
Yi(your decision to defeat the soldiers). Once you've defeated He Yi, there is
a Musou up right beside the Gate Captain beside him, so you might as well get
that. Now that you've finished that area near He Yi, don't advance down that
path, instead make your way to the West part of the map. There will be a
cut-scene showing Pei Yuan Shao starting powerful winds with windmills and your
allies(Cao Cao's troops and Liu Bei's troops) will hold there position until
you've destroyed all three windmills. So go to the West side of the map, when
there defeat Bo Zhang and the West forts North entrance will open. When any
allied troops reach the middle of the fort a cut-scene showing a Phantom
soldier. Now there will be Phantom troops that cannot be attacked, nor your
allies be able to attack them. To stop these Phantom troops, just destroy the
giant pots infront of Zhou Cang and the other at the Southeast corner of that
fort. You must destroy both pots and defeat Zhou Cang in order to open the
South gates. After you've defeated the giant pots and Zhou Cang the gates will
open, proceed down the path and defeat any soldiers you please. This is a good
place to build up KOs cause loads come from the bottom left entry point. After
you're done getting enough KOs(or not) just defeat Cheng Yuanzhi, run over to
Pei Yuan Shao at the Eastern side of the loer part of the map and defeat him.
You can go north and destroy the windmills and free your Allies or you can
leave them there. Once all that is done you have the choice to defeat Zhang Bao
and he won't appear at The Yellow Turban Rebellion or you can defeat the Gate
Captain inside the bottom castle after you've defeated all generals and Zhang
Bao will retreat and he will appear at Yellow Turban Rebellion.


The Yellow Turban Rebellion (Han Forces)

Difficulty: **
Level Changes: If you defeated Zhang Liang or Zhang Bao in the previous stages
then they will not appear in this battle.
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +6, Defense +6, Items x5

My Method: There are numerous ways to complete this level, but I can only
mention one, otherwise I'd probably be able to make an entire FAQ on this
level. Anyway, you're starting to the Southeast of the map if you're playing as
a Wei character. Ok, first ride(you'll need a horse) over to the middle, where
Liu Bei's Forces will be and defeat He Yi and Yan Zheng, Pei Yuan Shao's
sub-generals. Now Gao Sheng, Chang Yuanzhi's sub-general, will be coming along
the right wall of the area where you defeated He Yi and Yan Zheng. Defeat Gao
Sheng and then go North and defeat Cheng Yuanzhi. Move left and defeat Pei Yuan
Shao. Now that you're at the West side of the map quickly defeat sub-general of
Zhang Man Cheng, Guan Hai. Then when you enter the Northwestern area, if you
did not defeat Zhang Bao at Yellow Turban Fortress, a cut-scene where Zhang Bao
is given power and summons winds and ground explosions. This will hold off your
Allies moving in that area, Zhang Bao will most likely not be defeated. Anyway
get back on track and defeat Zhang Man Cheng and go all the way back to the
East side of the map. Defeat sub-general Deng Mao and then move into the
Northeastern area. If you did not defeat Zhang Liang at the Yellow Turban
Menace, Zhang Liang will summon rockslides. Boulders will come from all angles
and this may be a problem. Get the Musou up at the very right of that area and
defeat Zhang Liang "as quick as possible". Then when the summon stops, defeat
Bo Zhang and move up toward the path to Zhang Jiao. Defeat his sub-generals Han
Xian and Zhou Cang. You can run over to Zhang Bao, if he's still alive, and run
back to the main path towards Zhang Jiao. Defeat Huang Shao and Liu Pi then to
get Zhang Jiao to retreat defeat the Gate Captain beside him. If you don't want
him to retreat just quickly defeat him and the level ends.	


-----------
-Act II-
The Alliance against Dong Zhuo
-----------


Battle of Si Shui Gate (Allied Forces)

Difficulty: ***
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +4, Defense +6, Items x3

My Method: This is a rather easy level to complete, your Commander is Yuan Shao
and the enemy Commander is Li Jue. As a Wei character you will start at the
very right of the map. You can use any method you choose, but I recommend using
this method. Ok, first defeat Li Su, after that Gao Shun will take off up
towards Sun Jian. You can chase after him and defeat him or just leave him.
Then defeat Niou Fu and right near his initial position there is a wooden wall
that you can jump over, jump over the wall and right there, there'll be a Musou
up, get that if desired. Move up that path, do not jump back over the wall,
instead continue up towards the area Li Jue is at. Sun Jian will announce that
he needs supplies and his Morale will decrease. Now defeat in that area the
following sub-generals: Yang Feng, Li Meng, Hu Zhen, and Zhao Cen. Now after
Sun Jian announces without supplies his force must retreat, he will begin to
retreat and Yuan Shao will ask if there is anyone who can defeat Hua Xiong, now
defeat Hua Xiong in a duel or not. After you defeat him there will be a
cut-scene that has Yuan Shao asking you has slain Hua Xiong. Your character
will announce that he/she has defeated Hua Xiong in there own way. Now enemy
reinforcements will arrive, the general is Dong Min. Defeat him and if Gao Shun
is still alive, you might as well defeat him. Now move up to the Northwest area
where enemies Guo Si and Li Ru are. When there defeat Guo Si and leave Li Ru
alive for now. Hope of the wooden wall beside Li Ru's position and you have
discovered a backroad to the supply depot. There is a Life up to the bottom
left of the depot. Now defeat Wang Fang and then Fan Chou. Your character will
say a phrase and the supply depot will be taken. Now run back to Li Ru and
defeat him. You will probably not have enough time to defeat Li Jue, besides
it's said that if you defeat him, he will not appear at Hu Lao Gate. Li Jue
will retreat about a minute after you defeat Li Ru.
Note: To trigger Li Jue to retreat you must defeat Hua Xiong, Dong Min, and Li
Ru. Once all have been defeated Li Jue will retreat.


Battle of Hu Lao Gate (Allied Forces)

Difficulty: ***
Level Changes: If you skipped Si Shui Gate then Hua Xiong will appear with 2
sub-generals.
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +7, Defense +6, Items x0

My Method: This can either be a difficult level or an easy level to complete
and here is my method of completing it.  Yuan Shao is your Commander and Dong
Zhuo is the enemy Commander for this battle. Wei characters will start at the
Eastern part of the map, to the South. The first few minute or so there will be
an archer ambush that is not a difficult thing to control, so break through the
ambush and defeat Li Ru's sub-general, Xu Rong. Now defeat Li Ru, the gates
will open and about 5 seconds after the gates open the allied Ramming vehicle
will appear. Do not protect it 'cause it will break the gates down regardless,
but not yet so go to the Northern part of the East side of the map where Liu
Bei is. Defeat Gao Shun in there and Dong Min afterwards. Now, Hu Lao Gates
gates will most likely be broken down by now. Just ignore Lu Bu's appearance
beyond Hu Lao Gate for now and move East and where Sun Jian is and defeat Li
Meng and then Guo Si. Now move towards Hu Lao Gate(West) and there will be a
Gate Captain, this Gate Captain will appear constantly until Lu Bu is defeated.
When you've arrived at Hu Lao Gate, decline Lu Bu's duel unless you want to
die. At the North and South top parts of Hu Lao Gate(the actual Gate) there is
a Musou up and a Life up. Get those if desired and ignore Lu Bu for now. Move
and defeat the two Gate Captains at the North and South beyond Hu Lao Gate if
you feel the need and after that move to defeat Diao Chan. After she's been
defeated, if you did not play Si Shui Gate, Hua Xiong will appear near Yuan
Shao with two sub-generals, Li Meng and Hu Zhen. Yuan Shao will die very
quickly, so get back there and assist him. If you did Si Shui Gate, Hua Xiong
will not appear. Now, continue from where you were, you were at the entrance of
Luo Yang. Once you enter Dong Zhuo will burn the city and retreat if you
defeated Lu Bu, so do not defeat Lu Bu yet. Now continue downward from your
current position and you'll reach Wang Fang, defeat him move North again and
defeat Jia Xu, who should be at the very North of that area. Now defeat Li Jue
and continue to the next area where Dong Zhuo will be. Defeat Fan Chou there
and ignore Dong Zhuo. Instead move West into the next area and defeat Niou Fu
who is at the far West of that area. Now all sub-generals and generals are
defeated except Lu Bu and Dong Zhuo. You can choose to ignore Lu Bu and defeat
Dong Zhuo or you can defeat Lu Bu and Dong Zhuo will begin to retreat. I
suggest to defeat Lu Bu, use any strategy you desire and defeat Lu Bu, once
you've defeated him Dong Zhuo will begin to retreat, he retreats all the way to
where you defeated Niou Fu so it's a fair distance there. You can try to catch
up to him and defeat him or you can allow him to retreat.
Note: If the clock reaches 72'00 before you've(or an ally) defeated Diao Chan
then Dong Zhuo will say "I'll teach you not to defy me!" and his forces will
charge, whiping out my entire strategy. Don't worry though as everyone will
charge for Yuan Shao, so you can just defeat them before the reach Hu Lao Gate.

Eliminate Zhang Jiao!
----------------


Eliminate Zhang Jiao! (Cao Cao's Forces)

Difficulty: ***
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +3(+5), Defense +1(+3), Items x1(x2)

My Method: Your allied generals will be Xu Huang and Xiahou Dun. Your Commander
is Cao Cao. The enemy Commanders are Zhang Jiao and Zhang Lu. At first your
allies will attack the Southwest corner. Xu Huang will attack from the South of
the fort and Xiahou Dun will attack the North. Go over with Xu Huang and Xiahou
Dun and defeat He Yi and Bo Zhang at that fort. Zhang Lu's unit will appear and
there are a lot of Zhang Lu troops. If you defeat Zhang Lu he will appear over
and over and over until you defeat all of his troops. If you have defeated all
of his troops then the real Zhang Lu will appear at the path that goes from the
left all the way to the right side of the map. He will appear in the middle
part a bit more to the right. If you defeat the real Zhang Lu then Zhang Jiao
will do a ritual and all your soldiers except Xu Huang and Xiahou Dun will
betray Cao Cao. Back to the Southwest fort, if you do not defeat all of Zhang
Lu's troops and he makes it to Zhang Jiao then they will both complete a ritual
causing all your troops, including Xu Huang and Xiahou Dun, to betray Cao Cao.
Just defeat Xu Huang and Xiahou Dun, then when at the top of the rockslide
area, defeat Pei Yuan Shao and Zhang Bao. Then move toward Zhang Jiao and you
should meet with Zhang Lu, defeat Zhang Lu and in that area there is a Musou up
South of the Northeast entry point. Now move up the stairs and defeat Zhang
Liang and move into the area where Zhang Jiao is. At the top area of the center
area, at the bottom right corner there is a Life up. Now only Zhang Jiao is
left so finish him off and the level is complete.

-Act III-
The Rise of Cao Cao
----------


Battle of Xia Pi (Cao Cao's Forces) {Level 10 Weapon - Xiahou Dun}

Difficulty: ****
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +8, Defense +6, Items x0

My Method: This battle can end up in so many different ways and here is my
method of going about this level. Your Commander is Cao Cao and the enemy
Commander is Lu Bu. In this level any Gate Captains you defeat, they will
appear again with no end. Your character starts at the Northeast corner. Either
West or South of Cao Cao. Either way start by going West and defeating Zang Ba.
Now Gao Shun's unit will have appeared by now South of Xiahou Dun's position.
Move down to defeat him and continue South. If Xiahou Dun is still alive and he
makes it to the Southeast river, there will be a cut-scene showing Xiahou Dun
getting shot in the eye with an arrow and continuing the battle. After this
cut-scene continue down past the river, Hou Cheng is the enemy general there
and within 10 seconds of meeting with him he will abandon Lu Bu's Forces and
begin to retreat. You can try to defeat him and he will still surrender to Cao
Cao, so I recommend trying to defeat him. Now, move West and you'll meet with
Song Xian. Again, he will begin to retreat unless you defeat him. Now, moving
North(West of the castle) you will encounter Wei Xu and he will also retreat
unless you defeat him. After you defeat him and few seconds later, Lu Bu will
realize that he is outnumbered and will exit the Northwest entrance of the
castle. After he's out a Carriage will appear. If you do not defeat it before
it reaches the Northwestern entry point, then Yuan Shu's unit will appear later
in the battle. If you do defeat it, Lu Bu's entire armies' morale will decrease
twice. I recommend to allow the Carriage to clear the battlefield and let Yuan
Shu to appear because he supplies 3 sub-generals. Now a cut-scene should appear
any minute showing the river that goes down and shows Red Hare on a small
island. After this go to the Northern area a bit more West and a boulder should
be there. Encounter it and another cut-scene will appear showing your character
jumping on a bunch of boulders and announce victory is near. After this the
stream in the castle will be easier to walk in and you can now move North
against the tide. So move into the entrance where Lu Bu exited. Ignore Lu Bu.
Now at the very North end of the stream there is a Life up, get that if desired
and continue to Chen Gong, defeat him and move down to Diao Chan, defeat her.
After you defeat Diao Chan, Lu Bu will go ballistic and starts yelling and
ranting. His morale rises. Around this time or maybe a bit before Red Hare will
be discovered on the little island Southeast of the map. Before you weren't
able to get there due to the heavy water coming down the stream, but now you
blocked off the water making Red Hare accessable. By this time Yuan Shu would
have appeared but ignore him for now and move to the little island. Once there
get the Musou up on the island and mount Red Hare. Lu Bu's morale decreases and
move all the way Southwest where Yuan Shu's sub-general, Lei Bo will be. Defeat
him and move North from there. Ji Ling, another Yuan Shu sub-general will be
there, defeat him. Now move North and another sub-general, Chen Lan will be
lurking around that area with Yuan Shu. Defeat them both and find Lu Bu and
defeat him to end the stage.


Battle of Wan Castle (Cao Cao's Forces) {Level 10 Weapon - Dian Wei}

Difficulty: ****
Level Changes: If you selected Xia Pi first in this Act and Lu Bu retreated
successfully, than in this level Lu Bu will come as reinforcements.
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +6, Defense +4, Items x2

My Method: This stage is rather small and can be confusing sometimes if you
don't know what's going on, here's my description of completing this level with
ease. First off, Cao Cao is your Commander and Zhang Xiu is the enemy Commander
which does not appear until later. If you are Dian Wei it will be more
complicated to follow these directions so you'll have to come up with another
way of completing the level. When you're a Wei character besides Dian Wei
you'll start at the Southeast hall. Cao Cao is at the very bottom right shrine
where there is a Life up. Backtrack and get that if you please or if you're Cao
Cao it'll be much easier to get. Now move up the hallway and you'll see most of
the paths are cut off from fire and trashed doors. Most of the level will be
like this making only one path available unless you are Dian Wei. Once you
reach the very North of the East hallway there is a Gate Captain and
sub-general Zhao Cen. Defeat him and once Cao Cao exits that hallway the door
to Dian Wei will be blocked off from fire. A Dian Wei cut-scene appears showing
him fighting off troops and telling Cao Cao to escape. Stay with Cao Cao all
the time and follow him to his destinations. He will now move South of this
hallway, Hu Zhen will be there who is sub-general under Jia Xu. Defeat him and
continue South. You'll come to a path leading left(map). Jia Xu will be there,
defeat him, and beyond him will be sub-general Fan Chou. Defeat him and clear
out all the troops for Cao Cao. Once he reaches Zhang Xiu's current position be
there with him, and either defeat him or let him retreat, either way he'll
arrive again at Cao Cao's escape point. Cao Cao will walk into two rooms and
both the exits in those rooms will be blocked off. A few minutes later
cut-scene showing Dian Wei(Xu Zhu) breaking through the door where Cao Cao and
Dian Wei cut-scene appeared. Now Cao Cao will backtrack all the way back, but
Zhang Xiu's army will appear in different areas of the level. Lu Bu will appear
if he retreated successfully at Xia Pi. Moving back now check where Cao Ang is.
In that room where he is there will be a Musou up, get that and guide Cao Cao
back to where Dian Wei is. Once back there defeat Hu Che Er in that main area
and Lu Bu in the next room if he appeared. Finish off Zhang Xiu and Cao Cao
will announce to retreat.
Note: Both defeating Zhang Xiu and Cao Cao reaching his Escape Point are
required for victory.


Battle of Guan Du (Cao Cao's Forces) {Level 10 Weapon - Xu Huang}

Difficulty: ****
Level Changes: If you skipped Xia Pi earlier in this Act, than Lu Bu will
appear as reinforcements.
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +12, Defense +7, Items x3

My Method: This battle can end up in so many different ways, I will write two
ways it can end up. Your Commander is, again, Cao Cao and the enemy has Yuan
Shao as their Commander. First off, you will most likely start above the Bai Ma
fort(Left fort). If you desire to have Wu Chao(supply depot at the very left of
the map, in which contains a Musou up) to be discovered than wait for both
forts to fall and the ramming vehicles appear(happens when enemy troops get
close to Cao Cao's bottom castle. After this the supply depot will be
discovered and Cao Cao will attack the depot. Follow him there and defeat
Chunyu Qiong and Lu Wei Kuang who comes as reinforcements, Wu Chao taken
causing Zhang He, if this is your first time playing as a Wei character in
Musou Mode, to defect to Wei.

If you do not desire to uncover Wu Chao than follow these directions to
victory; First move to the East part of the map, defeat Yan Liang, Guan Yu will
charge the enemy. Now move into the East castle and defeat Han Meng and Guo Tu,
who are sub-generals of Yuan Xi. Then defeat Yuan Xi. Yuan Shao's main force
will arrive and his army will charge. Guan Yu will have attacked Wen Chou by
now, so go to where Wen Chou is and defeat him before Guan Yu does. Move North
to defeat Yuan Shang, Xu Chen, Yuan Shao's sub-general, will be there and
defeat him as well. Guan Yu will meet with Liu Bei and they will both retreat
from battle. If you desired to defeat Liu Bei and Zhang Fei than do it after
you defeat Yuan Xi in the East castle. Now if you did not play Xia Pi, Lu Bu
will appear North of the East castle as reinforcements for Yuan Shao. Get over
there and defeat him. Now move North again and clear out Yuan Shao's troops if
desired. Now Yuan Tan is at the East side of Yuan Shao's main army, defeat him
and Yuan Shao will retreat from battle.

Guan Yu's Escape

Guan Yu's Escape (Cao Cao's Forces) {Valuable Item - Way of Musou}

Difficulty: ****
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +6, Defense +6, Items x0

My Method: This level will take at most 12'00 minutes to complete, at least it
should. Now, your Commander is Xiahou Dun and the enemy Commander is Guan Yu.
In this level Guan Yu is trying to escape through 5 Gates and at the end(Yellow
River) he will meet with Liu Bei and they will retreat causing you to loose the
battle. Guan Yu is also escorting a Carriage that must make it to the Yellow
River as well with Guan Yu there. Your objective is to defeat Guan Yu before he
reaches the Yellow River with the Carriage. At the beginning, you'll start at
the very top of the Northwestern castle. Guan Yu will start at the entrance of
the castle. Now, once you enter the next room, Sun Qian's unit appear will
appear at the 1st Gate. Defeat Sun Qian and his troops will flee. Now move out
of the castle and if desired pick up the Musou up to the left of the castle
entrance, at the end of a deadend. Continue along the path towards the Carriage
and Guan Yu. Oh ya, once you exit the castle, Zhou Cang's unit will appear at
the 2nd Gate. Defeat Zhou Cang and his troops will flee. Now, move past the 2nd
Gate and Liao Hua's unit appears at the 3rd Gate. If you've moved fast, this is
where you'll catch up to the Carriage. If you defeat the Carriage, Guan Yu
still will not stop. Once you reach Liao Hua, he will challenge you to a duel,
I recommend accepting because it saves time on the clock. Once you've defeated
him, clear the 3rd Gate, and once you do Guan Ping will appear infront of the
4th Gate. Move to defeat him. Now Liu Bei and Zhang Fei's unit appear at Yellow
River once Guan Yu passes the 5th Gate. beyond the 4th Gate, in that area there
is a Life up at the bottom right of that area. Now, Liu Bei and Zhang Fei will
charge after you. Defeat them both and another Carriage will appear beyond the
4th Gate. Defeat it if desired and move to defeat Guan Yu.
Note: There is an easier way to complete this level and that is to catch up to
Guan Yu as soon as possible and Fight him, but do not defeat him, until Xiahou
Dun appears and they will fight non-stop. This is a chance to continue the
level, defeat all generals and get the Valuable item, Way of Musou. When done
all this get back to Guan Yu and defeat him. Stage complete.

The Yuan Family's Pride

Battle of Ji Province (Cao Cao's Forces)

Difficulty: ****
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +6, Defense +6, Items x3

My Method: There are a few ways of going about this level and here is an
advised one that I'd like to share that works fine for me, by doing this method
I usually get around 300-400 KOs and all Worthy Opponents in less than 15'00 if
you're fast, so I think it's helpful. Your Commander in this battle is Cao Cao
and enemy Commander is Yuan Shao. First no matter where you start(Center, Left,
or Right) go to the center of the map and move up near Yuan Xi. Defeat Lu
Xiang, sub-general of Yuan Shang, then defeat Yuan Xi who will be in that same
area, maybe a bit more Northeast. Yuan Tan and Yuan Shang will be given words
from their own sub-generals telling them that they do not need each other and
Yuan Tan and Yuan Shang will begin to betray each other. Now move to the West
side of the map and at the bottom left area, just North of the Wall there is a
Life up, get that and defeat the general in that area, Lu Kuang. Move North
into the Northwest fort where Yuan Shang is. Do not encounter Yuan Shang yet if
you do then he'll betray to your side, so defeat both sub-generals, Feng Ji and
Shen Pei. Now encounter Yuan Shang and he'll have some words for his brother
and betray to your side. Now move along the North passway. Once in the
Northeast area where Yuan Tan is, defeat his sub-generals Xin Ping and Guo Tu
in that area. Now exit that area from the South and Xin Pi will be there,
defeat him and continue South. You'll encounter Gao Gan. Defeat Gao Gan and get
back to Yuan Tan, defeat Yuan Tan once there and Yuan Shao's main forces will
arrive, he will be ashamed of Yuan Shang and Yuan Shang will defect back to
Yuan Shao's Forces. Defeat Yuan Shang and move to Yuan Shao. Defeat Yuan Shao
to end the stage.

-Act IV-
The War against Liu Bei
----------


Battle of Bo Wan Po (Cao Cao's Forces)

Difficulty: ****
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +6, Defense +2, Items x3

My Method: There are a lot of traps and ambushes early in the level so you must
choose to Attack right away or to hold back and Defend. Your Commander is Cao
Cao and the enemy Commander is Liu Bei.

The first way of going about this level is to attack the enemy right away,
defeating Zhao Yun will stop all the traps and ambushes, there is one trap and
two ambushes that he leads your allies to. Follow my steps and you should be
fine. First charge the Southwest side of the map, so this is the area where
Jian Yong is. Go there and defeat Jian Yong. By this time the Fire Attack will
have happened and Xiahou Dun will be isolated and his troops will all be whiped
out by the fire. Once Zhao Yun reaches the very Left side of the map, Liu Bei
and Zhuge Liang will vanish from the frontlines. If you're fast enough you can
defeat Liu Feng(General at the fire attack location) and hurry over to Zhao Yun
before Guan Yu appears and defeat Zhao Yun. Now defeat the ambush general Guan
Xing and Guan Yu if he appears, not sure if he does after you've defeated Zhao
Yun before he triggered Guan Yu's ambush. Anyway, continue into the castle that
contains Wei's main forces. In the top left corner of the castle there is a
small room. In it there is a Musou and Life up in the top right and bottom left
corners. Zhang Fei will have attacked the supply depot by now and Zhuge Liang
with Liu Bei will appear. Go to Zhang Fei, beware he is strong, and defeat him.
Find Zhuge Liang and defeat him as well. Now just get to Liu Bei and finish him
off.

The second way is a much more challenging way to go about completing the level
and may take a bit more time than the other. Ok, first do not leave the castle,
let all the traps succeed, while waiting you can get the Life and Musou up in
the top left room of the castle. Once all traps and ambushes have succeeded all
enemy forces will head your way, to the castle. Zhang Fei will also appear at
the supply depot inside the castle. Zhuge Liang and Liu Bei will appear there
after. Now all the generals surrounding you will be Zhao Yun, Jian Yong, Liu
Feng, Guan Xing, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Zhuge Liang, and Liu Bei. So have some fun
and clean them all out. After you've defeated them all defeat Liu Bei and that
will end the stage.


Battle of Chang Ban (Cao Cao's Forces) {Level 10 Weapon - Zhen Ji}

Difficulty: ****
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +6, Defense +6, Items x5

My Method: This can be a very difficult level to complete no matter how good
you are at the game, so I have come up with a great solution to easily
completing the level. Your Commander is Cao Cao and the enemy Commander again
is Liu Bei. You must defeat Liu Bei before he reaches the very South where his
fleet is and he will escape resulting in a lose meaning you gotta do that all
over again, so follow these steps directly. First defeat Liao Hua at the
Northwest entrance of the castle, do not enter the castle yet. Now move down
the Western path until you meet Zhao Yun, he may challenge you to a duel,
accept if desired, and defeat him. Move back again towards the Northeast
entrance to the castle, Zhou Cang will be guarding that entrance, defeat him
and move into the castle. Once in the castle all the doors will shut and you
will be isolated and all of Zhuge Liang's troops including Sun Qian will attack
you all at once. I recommend defeating all three Gate Captains in the castle
very quickly. Settle in and defeat all Zhuge's troops and Sun Qian along with
them, now the North entrances to the castle will open. A Life up and Musou up
are in the bottom left and bottom right corners of the castle so get those if
you need them. Move to the South of the castle where Zhuge Liang is, now be
prepared to jolt it towards Liu Bei after you defeat Zhuge Liang cause Liu Bei
will immediately try to run to his fleet. Defeat Zhuge Liang and the South
entrances will open. Move quickly to Liu Bei who will come after you only once
to once he spots you stay near him all the time or else he will retreat. Time
and time Guan Yu and Liu Qi will arrive at your position with Liu Bei, defeat
Liu Qi and Guan Yu. Mi Zhu may be arround that area too, if so defeat him.
Zhang Fei will probably have to be left alone cause you can't leave Liu Bei or
he will retreat. Besides, Zhang Fei is too far away from your position anyway.
Now that everyone is cleared out in that area, defeat Liu Bei to end the stage.


Battle of Chi Bi (Cao Cao's Forces) {Level 10 Weapon - Cao Cao}

Difficulty: ****
Level Changes: If you defeated Zhuge Liang at Bo Wan Po previously, he will
become much easier to defeat. If you cleared Chang Ban first there will be less
Shu soldiers that appear.
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +14, Defense +12, Items x5

My Method: Here are two ways of completing the level. Either the Fire attack
succeeds or it fails, whatever path you choose I have a method for both. Cao
Cao is your Commander and Sun Jian is the enemy Commander this time.

If you want the fire attack to succeed, first ignore all battle messages and
take one path(West or East) and by the time you're done clearing out one side
of the map, the Fire Attack will probably have succeeded. I first recommend
taking the East side of the map because you want the Prayer for Wind
successful. Taking the East path, first defeat Zhuge Jin and Zhu Ran, clear out
all troops if desired and move down passed the first gate. You'll meet with Xu
Sheng, defeat him. By this time Pang Tong's "Linked ships" will have occured,
Pang Tong will now retreat. Continue downward and defeat enemy general Cheng
Pu, by this time Huang Gai's ship will have set sail. The Prayer for the Wind
will have happened by now too, Zhuge Liang will now retreat. Defeat all the
troops in that area to burn time and close both Gates in the area. Wait a while
until Huang Gai starts the Fire attack and move towards the action. Defeat Zhou
Yu's sub-general Ling Tong. Move up towards Huang Gai and defeat him. Move
along the platform towards Gan Ning and his sub-general Han Dang. Lu Meng and
Zhou Yu will have charged by now. Once you catch up to Gan Ning, defeat Han
Dang and then Gan Ning, Zhao Yun will be there too, defeat him. When Lu Meng
approaches, defeat him. Go to where Zhou Yu is and defeat his sub-general Pan
Zhang and then defeat him.
Now Cao Cao's Forces will all charge the enemy. Quickly defeat Sun Jian's
sub-generals Jiang Qin, Zhu Huan, and Lu Su. There is a Life up near Cao Cao
and to find the Musou up start from Sun Jian's main ship and go up one ship, go
left one ship and it's on the Northeast part of that ship. Defeat Sun Jian to
end the stage.

If you desire to ruin the Fire attack here's my method of doing so. First
encounter Pang Tong who is at the Northwest of the map. He will defect back to
the Allied Forces and begin to retreat, now you have foiled the "Linked ships"
ploy. Defeat him if you want to. Now go down to Zhuge Liang and defeat him
before the Prayer for the Wind occurs(you have lots of time). Now when a Wei
soldier announces that Huang Gai wished to surrender go to the place where he
will arrive, it is indicated on the map if you watch closly. Go there and wait
for him, if you're right where he will arrive then the Fire attack will not
start right away, so be right there. Defeat Huang Gai once he arrives to foil
the Fire Attack. Now defeat any generals or sub-generals that you please and
defeat Sun Jian to end the stage.

-Wei Tales-
The Stalwart Ma Chao
----------


Battle of Tong Gate (Cao Cao's Forces) {Level 10 Weapon - Xu Zhu}

Difficulty: *****
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +6, Defense +6, Items x3

My Method: In this Wei Tales stage your Commander is Cao Cao and the enemy
Commander is Ma Chao. First you're gonna need to go to the Southeast area where
Cheng Yin, Meng De, and Wei Yan will be lurking. Meng De is a sub-general of
Wei Yan so if you defeat either Wei Yan or Cheng Yin, Pang De will charge out
from Tong Gate. If you defeat him then Ma Dai will charge out from Tong Gate.
Clean up that area by defeating all Meng De, Wei Yan, Cheng Yin, Pang De, and
Ma Dai. Now move into Tong Gate and ignore Ma Chao and move to the river that
is passable to the North of Ma Chao's camp, there is a Musou up in the river if
you need that. Do not defeat any of Han Sui's sub-generals or soldiers until
Cao Cao announces he will go meet with Han Sui while waiting there is a Life up
near the Northwest Gate Captain, if you need it then go get it now. A few
minutes after Cao Cao announces this he will encounter Han Sui. A cut-scene
will appear and Han Sui will consider defecting. In order to get him to defect
you need to deplete his morale to one star by defeating his sub-generals and/or
soldiers. Once his morale reaches one star he will defect to your side. Now
finish up the level by defeating Ma Chao. The Gate behind Ma Chao's initial
position is a good place to get KOs if you're interested.

Lu Bu's Revenge
----------


Lu Bu's Offensive (Cao Cao's Forces)

Difficulty: *****
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +4, Defense +4, Items x1

My Method: I can't say I've played this level much, actually once, but I think
I have a method on how to beat Lu Bu fast and farely easy. First off defeat Gao
Shun right away. Then kill off as many soldiers as you please until you desire
to defeat Diao Chan. Once you desire this, defeat her at once, then a while
later enemy reinforcements, Zang Ba, will appear. Easily defeat him and move
onto Lu Bu. Defeat Lu Bu. There is a Musou up just outside the Northwest
entrance to the castle. There is also one North of the bottom right Gate
Captain. These can be helpful if you're someone such as... Xu Zhu, who's Musou
is tremendously low.


----------
-Act V-
The Fall of Wu
----------

Note: If the Fire attack at Chi Bi was successful, then Act 5 will be "The Fall
of Shu". If the Fire attack at Chi Bi was unsuccessful, then Act 5 will be "The
Fall of Wu". I'll continue the Walkthrough as if the Fire attack was
unsuccessful.


The Siege of Fan Castle (Wei's Forces) {Level 10 Weapon - Cao Ren}

Difficulty: *****
Level Changes: If you played the Battle of Shi Ting first and in that stage you
Cao Xiu was isolated by Zhou Fang's defection, then Zhou Fang will arrive as
Wu's reinforcements. If Cao Xiu was NOT isolated then Cao Xiu will arrive as
Wei's reinforcements.
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +12, Defense +12, Items x2

My Method: If you are not playing as Cao Ren this level may be very hard. Your
Commander is Cao Ren for this battle and the enemy Commander is Sun Quan. You
will start at the very Southeast corner regardless of what character you are in
the Wei Forces. I have to methods for this level, one is the hard way, the
other is easier.

If you choose to play the level with difficulty then choose this method. First
go straight to Taishi Ci's position and defeat Zhu Ran then Taishi Ci. 'fend
off any soldiers in that area if desired. Now go South of Fan Castle where Zhou
Tai is, defeat Xu Sheng and then Zhou Tai. By this time many siege weapons may
have been set up and Cao Ren may be under attack already. Go help him and keep
him alive by killing the Sub-Generals and Generals attacking him, they are Ling
Tong, Sun Shang Xiang, Ding Feng, Lu Xun, Jiang Qin, and Lu Meng. Defeat them
all. Sun Quan and his Sub-General won't be too far behind either, so defeat
Cheng Pu and Sun Quan to end the stage. The difficult part is Cao Ren will be
in trouble before you defeat Zhou Tai so you have to be quick before Cao Ren is
defeated.

The easier way to complete the level is to defeat all 4 siege weapons before
more arrive. So first go North and defeat the Siege Ramp quickly that is moving
to the East side of the castle. Then QUICKLY go the the West side of the castle
and defeat the Siege Ramp there, you should make it just in time to destroy it
before it sets up. No destroy the North and South Catapults quickly. Now your
entire army will have a morale boost and Cao Ren will not be defeated so
easily. Now defeat Zhu Ran, Taishi Ci, Xu Sheng, Zhou Tai, Ling Tong, Sun Shang
Xiang, Ding Feng, Lu Xun, Jiang Qin, Lu Meng, Cheng Pu, and finally Sun Quan.


Battle of Shi Ting (Wei's Forces)

Difficulty: *****
Level Changes: If you played Siege of Fan Castle first, then a Catapult will
attack the castles main gate.
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +12, Defense +12, Items x3

My Method: In this level your Commander is Sima Yi and the enemy Commander is
Lu Xun. In this level the main focus is the Zhou Fang defection. At first he
will be on the Wei Forces, but later he will defect to Wu. It will be good for
your allies if you prevent this. First off go up the middle right path. Once
you reach enemy General, Ding Feng, defeat him. He will say "I leave the rest
to you Zhou Fang" after he's defeated. Now quickly move North from there and
defeat the General Quan Zong. Now Cao Xiu will most likely be isolated by now
due to Zhou Fang's defection, and a General and Sub-General will appear for the
Wu Forces in ambush near Cao Xiu. You must save Cao Xiu by defeating Zhou Fang,
Xu Sheng, and Zhu Zhi. Cao Xiu will retreat back to Sima Yi and that will boost
your allies' morale. Now move along the middle left path. You will encounter
Zhu Huan, defeat him and the main castles gates will open. Ambushes from each
corner of the middle part of the map will appear. They will all be heading for
Sima Yi, so you might want to give Sima Yi a hand. After saving Sima Yi's ass,
go back to the middle left path where Huang Gai will have made his way to.
Defeat him there and move towards the ememies main camp. Defeat Lu Xun's
sub-general Zhuge Jin and then finish him off. There is a Life up just outside
the castle and a Musou up in the bottom right corner of the castle. Get those
if you need them.


Battle of He Fei (Wei's Forces)

Difficulty: *****
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +24, Defense +32, Items x3

My Method: This level may take several minutes and maybe close to an hour if
you like to destroy enemy units one by one, patience is required. Your
Commander is Cao Cao and the enemy Commander is Sun Jian. Defeating Sun Jian
before he jumps the bridge will not end the stage, instead it will trigger the
Taishi Ci ambush and Sun Jian will arrive for the final time beyond the broken
bridge. First off you'll start at the top right area regardless of who you are,
excluding Zhang Liao. First, as anyone besides Zhang Liao, move Southward and
defeat Xu Sheng, and then Pan Zhang. Clean out that area if desired and
continue South to Ding Feng. Defeat him and soon enough Sun Jian will have
jumped the bridge and announce a full-scale attack. Lu Su will charge you,
defeat him. Now go to the center part of the map where two of Sun Jian's
sub-generals will be, Jiang Qin and Ling Tong, defeat them and move West. By
now Lu Xun will have arrived and Gan Ning along with him. Lu Xun will be at the
West part of the map and Gan Ning the East. Taishi Ci will have arrived near
the center of the map as well. First defeat Taishi Ci and then move to the West
part. Defeat Dong Xi and Zhu Ran. Now Cheng Pu and Lu Xun will have begun an
attack towards the Western entrance of the castle. Catch up to them and defeat
them. Now go way East where Gan Ning and Sun Jian will attack. Defeat Gan Ning
and Sun Jian's Sub-general Han Dang. Then defeat Sun Jian. End of stage. In
this level the Life up is right where Cao Cao's main force is on that upper
level of the castle, and the Musou up is right in the center of the map,
parallel to the Left gate.

Dong Zhuo Lives!
----------

Dong Zhuo in Ji (Wei's Forces)

Difficulty: ******
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +6, Defense +6, Items x2

My Method: This is basically a simple level, just defeat one Dong Zhuo general
after another until Dong Zhuo appears. The map is small in size, throughout the
level Cao Cao may be under attack more than once, but he'll survive. The
Generals on Dong Zhuo's Forces are Dong Min, Zhang Ji, Wang Fang, Zhao Cen, Hu
Zhen, Li Meng, Li Jue, Li Ru, Guo Si, Fan Chou, Niou Fu, and Xu Rong. Your
Commander is Cao Cao and the enemy Commander is Dong Zhuo. The Life up in this
level is Around the top left corner of the map. Musou up is in the fort where
Cao Cao is(or starts), it's closer to the bottom and a bit to the right.

-Final Act-
The End of the Three Kingdoms
----------


Battle of Mt. Ding Jun (Wei's Forces) {Level 10 Weapon - Xiahou Yuan}

Difficulty: ******
Level Changes: None
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +12, Defense +10, Items x4

My Method: I particularly don't like Mt. Ding Jun and I never have in Dynasty
Warriors 3 either. Regardless of what I like I still have a method. In this
level your Commander at first is Xiahou Yuan and then if he gets defeated or if
a certain amount of time passes in the level, than Cao Cao comes as
reinforcements and he is your Commander, and the enemy Commander is Liu Bei.
First thing is that there are two prisoners and they make an exchange at the
start of the level. Chen Shi(the Wei prisoner) will try to make it to the Shu
Forces and Xiahou Shang(the Shu prisoner) will try to make it back to your
forces. As a Wei character you start right behind Chen Shi, he has low life so
you can defeat him or you can let him go and he will join the battle again with
full life. First go right along the long path leading to the top of Mt. Ding
Jun. When you get there Huang Zhong and his sub-general, Yan Yan. When you
encounter Huang Zhong a cut-scene will appear and your character insults Huang
Zhong in his/her own way. After this cut-scene just defeat Yan Yan and then
Huang Zhong. Liu Bei will charge toward Mt. Ding Jun, move down the South path
from Mt. Ding Jun. Zhao Yun will arrive around this time in that area. Defeat
Zhao Yun. Keep along the South path and eliminate all the Gate Captains along
the way if desired. Now the main Shu gates will open and Zhang Fei and Chen Shi
will charge the Wei main camp. Pass by Liu Bei and defeat his sub-general Fa
Zhang. Now move toward the main enemy camp where Liu Bei started and Zhuge
Liang should be there. Defeat Zhuge Liang and go North from the main camp and
Zhang Fei and Chen Shi will be attacking your forces, defeat Zhang Fei and Chen
Shi. Now get to Liu Bei and defeat him. In this level Cao Cao will retreat if
Yang Xiu is defeated. The Life up is along the North path leading to Mt. Ding
Jun, it's beside the Gate Captain in the middle of the path. The Musou up is in
the Shu's main camp, in the middle squared area, top left corner.


Battle of Jie Ting (Wei's Forces) {Level 10 Weapon - Zhang He}

Difficulty: ******
Level Changes: If you played Mt. Ding Jun first, Xiahou Yuan will arrive as
reinforcements.
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +12, Defense +12, Items x2

My Method: This can be a rather enjoyable level, well it is to me. The initial
enemy Commander is Ma Su, if you defeat him before Zhuge Liang arrives then the
stage is over, if you do not defeat him in that time then Zhuge Liang will
arrive as the enemy Commander after he's been surrounded or Ma Su has sent
smoke signals(He will send smoke signals if you haven't defeated all three of
his sub-generals in time). Your Commander is the highly Sima Yi. If you're
playing as Zhang He then you will start at the Southern area of the map, if
not, then you'll start within the Wei main camp in the Northern part of the
map. First, head to defeat Wang Ping, you must hurry before Ma Su sends smoke
signals. Then go South to defeat Liao Hua, and then South to defeat Gao Xiang,
basically the idea is to first defeat all three sub-generals quickly. Now when
Ma Su has been surrounded after you've defeated all three sub-generals, all the
gates surrounding him will open. He will announce that he can't face the Prime
Minister after this loss and he says he must lay at least one blow on Sima Yi
and will charge towards the main camp. Seconds later, Zhuge Liang arrives with
reinforcements, Zhao Yun and Wei Yan. Yue Ying also as his sub-general. Defeat
Ma Su, then Wei Yan should charge right towards Ma Su's initial position,
defeat Wei Yan. Zhao Yun is at the North part of the map, go towards him and
defeat him. Now that all other units are destroyed, just go down near the main
camp to the South. Defeat Yue Ying and then Zhuge Liang. The Life up is right
in the very South area of the map, at the top right corner. The Musou up is in
the Wei's main camp, top right corner of the fort, right near Sima Yi.


Battle of Wu Zhang Plains (Wei's Forces) {Level 10 Weapon - Sima Yi}

Difficulty: ******
Level Changes: If you defeated Chen Shi before he returned to enemy lines then
Huang Zhong will arrive as enemy reinforcements. If you defeat Jiang Wei before
Zhuge Liang arrives after the fake death then Yue Ying will arrive with Zhuge
Liang to guard the Arbalests. If you played Jie Ting first before Wu Zhang
Plains, then a supply team(Wooden Oxen) will appear.
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +24, Defense +16, Items x0

My Method: This will most likely be a long level if you play it the way I do.
The enemy Commander is initially Zhuge Liang, but sooner or later there will be
a cut-scene showing Zhuge Liang dying, but it's a fake death, then he arrives
later after Sima Yi makes it to Jiang Wei. Then Zhuge Liang retreats back to
the main camp and Liu Bei arrives, he is now the enemy Commander. Your
Commander is Sima Yi and only Sima Yi. You will most likely always start off at
the Western part or Eastern part of the map. Either way defeat Zhang Yi and Wei
Yan on the Eastern, or Guan Xing and Ma Chao on the Western. Now go towards the
enemies supply depot(Southwest). The general guarding the supply depot is Liao
Hua, destroy your way through to him and at this time the Wooden Oxen will have
appeared if you played Jie Ting first. Defeat all the Wooden Oxen to get a
morale boost. Now defeat the supply captain, Liao Hua. A cut-scene showing your
character slay Liao Hua and yelling something victory related will appear. Each
character has an individual line in this cut-scene. Now go North from the
supply depot and you'll meet Zhao Yun around there, defeat Zhao Yun to gain
access to the enemies main camp. Zhuge Liang will have arrived from the fake
death by now and Sima Yi will begin to retreat back to headquarters. Go to the
East side of the map and defeat Gao Xiang and Ma Dai there, defeat Zhang Yi and
Wei Yan if you did not beforehand. Now get to the center of the map and defeat
Wang Ping, Jiang Wei's sub-general. When you approach Jiang Wei, Sima Yi will
announce to defeat him because he controls the Arbalests. Defeat Jiang Wei or
Yue Ying if you defeated Jiang Wei beforehand. Now enter the main camp and
you'll meet Zhang Bao, defeat him and go to Zhuge Liang and defeat him then
finish off Liu Bei. The Life up in this level is in the supply depot if the
Wooden Oxen make it through battle lines safely, the Musou up is in the top
East area, a bit South, beside the gate there.


Battle of Cheng Du (Wei's Forces)

Difficulty: ******
Level Changes: Wei Yan will defect if you leave him alone for a while in this
battle.
Attack/Defense/Item pickups total: Attack +25, Defense +24, Items x0

My Method: This WILL be a long level, so you must have patience. The enemy
Commander is Liu Bei and your Commander is Cao Cao. First of all, Yue Ying and
Zhuge Liang will tell Wei Yan not to attack yet and have patience. Start off by
attacking from the South first. Defeat Mi Zhu, and then the general he's under,
Ma Dai. Ignore going straight towards Wei Yan at this time, your allies won't
attack him either. Go North instead when you reach the Bridge, Zhang Bao will
arrive an ambush. Defeat Zhang Bao and get to your main camp. Wang Ping's army
will be attacking Cao Cao by now. Defeat Wang Ping's sub-generals Liao Hua and
Gao Xiang, then defeat Wang Ping. When you or your allies approach the castle
Ma Su is located in an Arbalest unit will appear around that castle. Your
allies' Ram will appear to knock down the walls. Defeat Guan Suo and Guan Xing.
Now you will be allowed access to the castle, an ambush will appear when you
enter the castle. Get to Ma Su and defeat him. Now Sima Yi will probably start
to encourage Wei Yan to defect to the Wei forces. He will do so short after,
now Wei Yan will charge towards Yue Ying. Get down there immediately. A new
passway will appear in the area from where Wei Yan is to the main camp. Enemy
forest troops will start to appear in the forest. Zhang Yi will appear there.
Liu Bei's main unit will now appear. When you got to the South passway, defeat
Li Yan and the Juggernauts will begin to attack. Defeat Yue Ying for them to
stop. Now Go North and Mines will appear. Get to the main camp and defeat Jiang
Wei and Ma Liang in that area. Now go towards the forest and Guan Yu will
appear, defeat him. Now at the North part of the forest Guan Ping will appear
if you go there. Defeat him and Zhang Yi. Ma Chao would have arrived by now at
Luo Castle too. Backtrack and defeat him, for he is a threat to Cao Cao. Now
get back to the enemies main camp and when you approach Liu Bei, a bunch of
peasants will appear. Zhuge Liang will charge you too, clean out everything and
defeat Zhuge Liang then Liu Bei.

2. Battle in randomly created maps
3. New challenge modes


Now Muni Shinobu has his website updated with some Frequently Asked Questions.
Here is the questions with his answers.
Note: I took out all the symbols he uses that are difficult to read as well.

----------
Start of Muni's info

Legend Mode
New game mode to replace Musou Mode.
Character-specific mode, where each character gets his or her own storyline and
stages. (Pretty similar to the Musou Mode in Dw2 and Dw3.)
Each of the 42 characters gets his or her own storyline and stages.
The stages and character-specific storylines will be closer to history (novel
version).
In each character's scenario, there will be one special episode unique to that
specific character, the basis of which is based on the Romance of the Three
Kingdoms novel.
It's said that in Legend of Yue Ying, the special episode will be a battle
against Zhuge Liang, who will be commanding a fleet of Tiger Tanks, and the map
will be the Guan Yu's Escape map. (?)
In Legend of Sun Ce, the special episode will be a battle against the dead
spirit of the wizard Yu Ji. (?)
And in Legend of Yuan Shao, the special episode will be a battle against an
entire enemy army on horseback. (?).

Battle Demon Mode
New game mode to replace Free Mode.
Players play in a randomly generated short scenario which keeps going until HP
runs out.
Results are recorded, for players to challenge their own high scores.
It seems characters must start fresh in this mode.
And all the character levelling up done in this mode will remain in this mode.
Some new items will need to be unlocked in this mode.

Continuous Battle
New Challenge Mode, in addition to the original 4 challenge modes.
Players fight consecutive Ikkiuchi Duel battles until HP runs out.
The more you win, the stronger the next opponent will become, hence it's "super
hard" reputation.
Levelled up characters are playable in this mode.
Characters can also equip items.
Online ranking is planned, but not decided yet at this point.

1. Can I still play Musou Mode and Free Mode?
If you have the original Dynasty Warriors 4 game disk, you will be able to swap
and load the disk into Xtreme Legends, and still be able to play with the
original Musou Mode and Free Mode.
(Exactly the same as in Dynasty Warriors 4 Xtreme Legends.)

2. How many difficulty levels?
Five.
Novice Difficulty.
Easy Difficulty.
Normal Difficulty.
Hard Difficulty.
Expert Difficulty.

3. Can I use previous save files?
Save file from Dynasty Warriors 4 will be recognized.
Weapons can be transferred over.
Items can be transferred over.
Bodyguard names can be transferred over. (?)
Bodyguard status can not be transferred over. (?)
Character status can be transferred over. (?)
Character rank point can not be transferred over. (?)

4. How many characters? Will there be new characters?
Still 42 characters, all playable initially.
No new characters are announced.

5. New Items?
There will be 9 new items.
Currently known:
No Retreat Protective Spell.
Meat Bun Sack.
* The phrase "with one's back against the water (such as an ocean)" means to go
into battle with no means of retreat prepared, hoping for this lack of a
retreat route to turn into a driving force for the soldiers to fight with their
lives, because there is no turning back. It's either win or die, losing is not
an option.
With that in mind, if I were to guess, I would say the effect of this item
might be "Attack x2 When HP Critical". But since the original item "Explode
Legend Book" already somewhat has this effect, the more probable guess might be
"Defense x2 When HP Critical".

6. What is the highest level for ability items?
Level 25? Level 30?

7. What is the highest level for elemental jades?
Level 5?

8. What is the highest level for weapons?
Level 11.
Added effects are attached to Lv11 weapons.
Lv11 weapons will presumably be unlocked in Legend Mode, so does that mean the
Edit Characters get their own Legend Modes as well?

9. How many Weapon Experience Points does it take for weapons to level up?
Lv1 = 0
Lv2 = 1000
Lv3 = 3000
Lv4 = 6000
Lv5 = 10000
Lv6 = 15000
Lv7 = 21000
Lv8 = 28000
Lv9 = 36000
Lv10 = need to unlock
Lv11 = need to unlock

10. Do Lv10 and Lv11 weapons have their own graphics?
Yes.
Lv1 ~ Lv3 = simplest graphic.
Lv4 ~ Lv6 = slightly cooler graphic.
Lv7 ~ Lv9 = much cooler graphic.
Lv10 = Coolest graphic.
Lv11 = Super cool graphic.

11. Character Edit changes?
Additional options will be added to Character Edit. (?)

12. Miscellaneous changes?
Footsoldiers' actions are said to be re-programmed, to become more active.
Winning duels will give you better items, although the luck (randomness) factor
is still present.

13. Premium Pack?
The Premium Pack is a package set containing both Dynasty Warriors 4 and
Dw4:Xtreme Legends. Japan only(?)

End of Muni's info.
----------


This series started on the PS1 where it was a regular fighter game like Street
Fighter. They are still available at places like Gamestop or ebgames, so if
you're looking to complete the collection or just try it out you should check
it out. Dynasty Warriors 2 was a big hit in NA and Japan as it was a total
different experience from the last Dynasty Warriors or any game at that matter.
It also, in my opinion, supports the best in-game map designs in any Dynasty
Warriors installment. Dynasty Warriors 3 was a bigger and better experience
from Dynasty Warriors 3, it had different Weapon's and Item's added and tons
more characters than Dynasty Warriors 2. It also supported Weapon and Item
progression. Dynasty Warriors 4 changed the pace of the series with it's new
style of Weapon progression, the addition of Orbs, and more saddles, items, and
a few more characters. It was a hugh hit in Japan and is moving along at a fast
pace in NA. From when I first popped in my Dynasty Warriors 4 disk to the time
I take it out at night, I know it feels like a total different experience. I've
been playing it now almost every day since it's Canadian release on the 27th of
March and I don't seem to get bored. I still have much more to play for on
Dynasty Warriors 4 and hope for a new installment soon. Dynasty Warriors 3
Xtreme Legends was an upgrade to Koei's Dynasty Warriors 3 and did "ok" in
sales, it has also been confirmed that a new Dynasty Warriors 4 Xtreme Legends
will be released sometime this Winter.

II. Dynasty Tactics Series
--------------------

Dynasty Tactics is a great game full of strategy and patience. Although I don't
have much to say about the series and I can't say I've played it much, but I
recommend this game to anyone who's played Dynasty Warriors and liked it. It's
newest installment is scheduled to be released in September and I know I'll be
checking it out.
