 In-game Bio

My Plug 
As I write this I am currently running a Dynasty Warriors tournament
fan site called Clash of Kingdoms. It is extremely fun and a great
way to meet good people and make some great new friends. Unfortunately
it started dying and I have decided to revive it.My efforts have been
tremendously successful so far but we need more people. So if you
are interested please come to http://cokvi.proboards28.com


This is my second GameFAQs FAQ. Everything I have written is based on what I
have discovered myself in the game. I got her fourth weapon on my own but I
didn't know exactly what I did to get it. So I consulted EChang's Fourth 
Weapon FAQ. Thanks EChang.

Any additional information about Xiao Qiao is welcomed, however I will not
respond to flaming.

Unlocking Xiao Qiao 

To unlock Xiao Qiao you must clear the musou mode of Zhou Yu. Zhou Yu is an
initially unlocked character, so all you have to do is clear that one musou

In-game Bio 

The daughter of Qiao Xuan. She later married Zhou Yu of Wu. Together with
her older sister, Da Qiao, they were referred to as the "Two Qiaos". Upon
hearing a rumor spread by Zhuge Liang that Cao Cao was after the Qiao
sisters, Zhou Yu persuaded Sun Quan to declare war, ultimately leading Wu
into the battle of Chi Bi.

"How do you like that?"

1.Battle of Si Shui Gate (Allied Forces)
2.Battle of Jing Province (Sun Jian's Forces)
3.Battle of the Wu Territory (Sun Ce's Forces)
4.Battle of Xia Kou (Sun Quan's Forces)
5.Battle of Chi Bi (Allied Forces)

1.Battle of Si Shui Gate (191 AD)
Victory Conditions: Defeat Hua Xiong
Defeat Conditions: Yuan Shao is defeated

Battle Overview: In order t save Luo Yang from Dong Zhuo, Yuan Shao has formed
the Allied Forces. Their target is Si Shui Gate, which is protected by Dong
Zhuo's officer, Hua Xiong. The vanguard for the attack on Si Shui Gate will be
Sun Jian. The plan is for Yuan Shu to provide support and send supplies. If
the alliance can go smoothly, then our victory is assured, but...

When you first start this battle, you will be given the order to clear a
path for Yuan Shu. In order to do this you must take the northeast base.
Once you do this you will get a small morale boost. Your next task is to
head for Si Shui gate. You have two options: Lu Bu or no Lu Bu. Either way
head for Si Shui gate. If you want to attack Lu Bu, which I strongly
suggest against doing unless Xiao is really buffed up (though he is not
nearly as difficult as he is at Hu Lao gate), he will strick out from Si
Shui gate as you approach. Once his life gets low enough he will boost his
attack. Once his life gets a bit lower he uses his Musou Rage. If you have
it, you should do the same and try to finish him off. If you have problems
with Lu Bu breaking your guard, then get on a horse and guard. He can not
break your guard while you are on a horse. After you defeat him you are
free to defeat Hua Xiong, who will be a cakewalk compared to Lu Bu. If you
do not wish to fight Lu Bu then simply go around him without fighting. He
will usually not follow you. Just because Yuan Shao doesn't say his famous
line, "Don't pursue Lu Bu" doesn't mean it is not still a valid point. Hua
Xiong has alot of defense, so it may take some time to take him out.

2.Battle of Jing Province (192 AD)
Victory Conditions: Defeat Liu Biao
Defeat Condition: (At start) Sun Jian is defeated; (After Sun Jian retreats)
Sun Ce is defeated or the main camp is captured

Battle Overview: Sun Jian's army has set out to attack Liu Biao, who has taken
refuge in Xiang Yang Castle. Liu Biao must be defeated so that the world can
know the strength of Wu. We must approach from the west, center and east to
surround Xiang Yang Castle. We must be careful of ambush units and traps while
we make our way towards the castle. But why is the enemy so quiet...

(NOTE: This is not a fourth weapon strategy)

Your first mission is to open the gates to Liu Biao's inner chamber.To do
this you must defeat many gate captains. he fastest way is to go in
through the east defeating all gate captains and officers along the way.
About 7-10 minutes into the stage, Liu Biao announces that the
reinforcements have arrived and to launch the attack. Su Fei and Cheng
Sheng will then appear. One of them is dangerously close to your commander
while another heads straight for your base. This is where you are at a
crossroads. You must decide between saving your commander and saving your
base. If you already recieved a message saying your main camp is under
attack you will want to rush back to the main camp to defend it. Then when
it is secure go and assist Sun Ce. After you have wiped out all enemy generals
except Liu Biao, Liu Biao becomes a cakewalk. He does have a few magicians
guarding him so watch out for them.

3.Battle of the Wu Territory (187 AD)
Victory Conditions: Defeat Liu Yong or Taishi ci
Defeat Conditions: Sun Ce is defeated

Battle Overview: Su Ce's Army has set out to take the land of Wu, which are
currently under the rule of Liu Yong. However, the land originally belonged to
Wu. It must be returned to its proper owner. The Allied Forces are strong and
we have few allies. However, many people long for the land to return to Wu. If
we take the neutral bases, then some people may come to join our cause.

At the start of the battle you are ordered to secure nuetral bases. There is a
base directly behind Xiao Qiao's starting position. Simply go inside it and it
will be claimed for Sun Ce's Forces. After you do this hurry and take the base
at the southwest. Do not worry about enemy generals or captains along the way.
There will not be enough time to take the third neutral base. Now you should
clear out the fortresses for experience. After a while Sun Quan will request
assistance. Go aid him in Hiu Zhu Fortress. Your other allies may ask for
assistance after this. It is up to you whether you want to help them or take
out the commander. Chances are if you have done everything I said Liu Yong
will have fled, leaving Taishi Ci in charge. So go to Xin De castle and engage
Taishi Ci. You should see a cutscene. He is fairly buffed up but it shouldn't
be too awefully hard to take him down.

4.Battle of Xia Kou (208 AD)
Victory Conditions: Defeat Huang Zu
Defeat Conditions: Sun Quan is defeated

Battle Overview: The Sun Family must face the cowardly Huang Zu in a difficult
battle along the Chang Jiang. Somehow, Huang Zu must be defeated so that the
Sun Family can finally rest. If we take the dock in the center of the
battlefield, it will be beneficial for our cause. There does not appear to be
any formidable officers within Huang Zu's camp, but it is likely a trap.

The first thing you should do is take some enemy bases. There are plenty ripe
for seige on the east side where Xiao Qiao starts. After a time you will
recieve an order to clear the docks. Simply head to the docks and wipe out all
enemy generals protecting them. This should be Wen Pin, Li Qi, and Cai Mao.
While you are there you might as well take the supply base. After you clear
the docks head north toward the fortress. When you get there Su Fei will most
likely be waiting for you. Defeat him with some of that trademark Qiao grace
and tak out the gate captain to open the gate to the fortress. If you want
your allies to assist you then take out the gate captains to the east and west.
Battle Den Long and that should leave Huang Zu alone in his fortress. Now is
your chance to take him out. If you have trouble, kill the guard captain and
secure the checkpoint above Huang Zu. This should be an easy fight after all

5.Battle of Chi Bi (208 AD)
Victory Conditions: Defeat Cao Cao
Defeat Conditions: Sun Quan is defeated

Battle Overview: In order to oppose Cao Cao's tyranny, Wu and Liu Bei have
joined forces. Cao Cao immediately moved in response to this, setting the stage
for a grand naval battle to unfold at Chi Bi. We must withstand the attack by
Cao Cao's Army until our plan can unfold. Follow the advice of our strategist,
Zhou Yu, and everything should be fine. If it works, then we have a shot at

As it has been in previous Dynasty Warriors games, the Battle of Chi Bi is
most effective when you sweep the level, clearing all opposing officers. It
should not be too hard. Defend Zhuge Liang's altar if he gets in trouble. When
Huang Gai starts moving defend him at all costs. The fire attack and the wind
prayer together will give you a great morale boost. This battle is great for
experience if you clear all enemies out. You should not have much threat of
your comander being felled in this stage. Once you are satisfied with your
KO count and Worthy Opponent count, take out Cao Cao once and for all.
Congratulations, you have now completed Xiao Qiao's Musou Mode.

This is a very straightforward and easy weapon to get. Red Hare saddle is
strongly recommended. Ride to the south gate and defeat Cai Mao. When he is
defeated the South Gate will open. Go inside and ride east. When you ge to the
end of the wall on your left turn left and ride north. You will see Lu Gong
