Dynasty Tactics: Item Guide

Dynasty Tactics: Item Introduction and Locations

You are here: [ Home –> Games –> Dynasty Tactics –> Item Guide ]

Presenting the Dynasty Tactics Items Guide. On this page you can find out what the various items in the game do, where they are found, and several additional tidbits of information regarding them. I am even listing a trick you can use to get more powerful troop types faster (if you don’t mind using what could be called a “cheat”).

Professor Worm has created a hand-made graphical items map that compliments this guide wonderfully (especially if you don’t know any locations by city name).

Explanation: Items are displayed in three lines. The first is the item name, the second is the item type followed by the item effect, and the third is the requirement you must fulfill to get the item.

Items – Abilities Up

“Ability Up” type items increase Strength (Str), Intelligence (Int), or Leadership (lea) by an amount defined by the item (e.g. Abilities Up – Str +15).

Items – Experience Up

“Experience Up” type items increase troop class experience (Infantry, Archers, Cavalry, or Special) by an amount defined by the item (e.g. Exp UP – Archer Type +30) allowing you to select stronger troop types. Also see the troop type trick at the bottom of this page.

Items – Skills

“Skill” type items allow you to change the Skill of the equipping officer (e.g. Giving Xu Shu the Crescent changes his skill to Menace). A complete list of all possible skills along with their functions can be found in the manual. Also note that some officers don’t need the item they originally come with in order to have that skill (e.g. Guan Yu and Cao Cao). You can safely take their items away without changing their skill.

Troop Type Trick

Go to an officer that is of the same troop type as a troop type experience-enhancing item you already own. Equip the item to increase their class experience. Now, upgrade the officer’s troops to a better version of his troop type (e.g. Cavalry to Brigadiers). Now go back and unequip the type-enhancing item. Your officer will still have the better troop class, even though he isn’t using the item. You can go from one officer to the other in your army increasing the troop types with no limit. You can even equip new items without loosing the prematurely enhanced troop type.
