************************
Sec 2:  Weapons and Tips
************************


***NOTE***  For weapons in DW6, they are all randomly aquired.  There are 3
types.

Red-Power  (this gives you a stronger attack and charge as the renbu
            builds up.  But the renbu takes longer to build.)
Green-Range  (this gets more range out of a built up renbu, the Renbu also
             builds up quicker, and the weapons swings slightly faster.)
Blue-Speed  (this one swings alot faster and gets a faster renbu build,
             but is hard to find a high weapon attack power.)




Weapon Abilities
----------------
Real Musuo- Musou is always True musou no matter life
Renbu Heart- Renbu harder to decrease
Vacuum suck- During attacks, wind swirls around enemy
Void Flash- Certain probabilty to get instant kills
Drain Commander- HP goes up when hitting enemy generals
Hard Lock- Weapon Lock advantage
Deflect Arrow- While attacking arrows bounce off
Spirit Seal- Elements are stronger
Strength in Breath- Musou gage depletes faster but is stronger
Water Formation- Attack stronger, defense weaker


Getting the best 4th weapon
---------------------------
HeiFei New Castle, HELL difficulty. 1P: MAXED LuBu or anyone you 
feel confident fighting with. 2P: the character you want get weapons 
for. (it could be a Lv1 character) Equip both of them a fast horse 
with ‘Acquire Weapon’.

Start game, get 2P to ride to the pool in the middle, jump in and 
stay there. NO one would touch you while you are in water on a 
horse. 1P run straight to the boat where SunQuan is, there’s a 
HuaTuo Balm on the south side of the one boat east of SunQuan’s 
boat. Get that. Run to SunQuan and unleash your musou on him. If you 
use LuBu with a 90+ weapon with Ice element, One Flash, Spirit Seal, 
Real Ranbu and Vacuum wave, you would finish SunQuan in one Musou if 
you hit him every time. If not, just hit the crowd around you and you 
musou will fill instantly, hit him again. You should finish the stage 
in under 1 minute. All 3 objectives accomplished, you’d get 4 weapons 
for each character.

Horses and weapons are a random drop now.  Ya it sucks, but you
can still get red hare.  To Aquire the rare horses make sure you are playing
with a character with the skill that gets you better horses and weapons.
Then play a stage like Chang Ban, Hu Lao, Cheng Du, or Yellow Turban and 
break any pots you find in level to get another saddle.  This highly 
increases your luck of getting a rare horse.  When you get them, you are
looking for beautiful eyes, and godly body in their description under
the horses picture.  Good Luck, all you can really do is keep trying!
Once you get a red horse with both those descriptions, level him up with
a person with the horse ability skill(like Lu Bu has) and at level 5....
Red Hare!

Here are the exact methods for some of the rare horses
NOTE**** You must use time trick for these


First off, for a horse to be a rare horse, it must have the description 
"His eyes consider the world 
and has a heavenly physique". Key words here are Considers and Heavenly. 
There are 6 rare horses, 
one for each color.

To do a time trick, first go to the Date and Time settings on your ps3 and 
change the date to the one for 
the horse you want. Now just do all the requirements for that horse. If 
you already have a horse by the 
same name it will not work so make sure you get rid of that horse first.


Saddle Crate locations

Yellow Turban Rebellion - bottom left hand corner of the map on the cliff 
by the base.
Guan Du - bottom left hand corner of the map right by the wall after jumping 
off the cliff.
Shi Ting - by the southern entrance of the base in the center of the map.


Leveling

The maximum each stat can grow per level is...
39 for speed (minimum 344 for max)
49 for jump (minimum 304 for max)
94 for destruction (minimum 124 for max)
79 for attack (minimum 184 for max)
Of course you are going to want higher than the minimum for a higher 
chance of having a max stat.

Abilites that can be learned for each
Level 2 - nothing
Level 3 - Arrow Dance, Find Saddle, Find Weapon plus an element
Level 4 - Renbu Gait, Musou Spirit
Level 5 - Special Skill pertaining to horse color AND one of the other 
skills that hasn't been learned.

Note that if you do not get the ability/element/stat growth you want, 
then you should reset and try again by 
either picking up a different amount of weapons or starting a new level. 
It is also possible to get an 
element on a different level assuming you did not get one at level 3.

This got me several times.  You must NOT have ANY other horse in the       *
inventory that has BEI in the first part of the name. Example Bei Hu.      *
You will NOT get the red horse you want if you do.

Ok guys, the method has been confirmed by many people now and it's been    *
simplified a little bit. But since many of you are having trouble,         *
I’ll explain this again in a step by step fashion:                         *
                                                                           *
For M/G Red hare:                                                          *
                                                                           *
1)Set the time to be November 12th, 6:15AM 0 secs. (Time Zone doesn't      *
 matter at all.  This is done in the PS3 settings menu.)                   *
                                                                           *
2)Within one minute, boot the game and select Battle of GuanDu,            *
 Easy difficulty. Wei Side. Do not click anything else, just               *
‘ Free Mode’ – GuanDu- Easy.                                               *
                                                                           *
3)Now at the character select screen, 2P press start NOW. 1P wait          *
 and make sure 2P already pressed start. Select both characters.           *
 Maxed LuiBei and ZhenJi preferred. IF they are not maxed, make            *
 sure both of them has the ‘OPEN LUCK’ ability in the skill                *
 tree already.                                                             *
                                                                           *
4)Now battle preparation screen. Both Characters must select a horse       *
 (it could be any kind of horse). Both horses MUST have 'Persuation',      *
 and NONE of them can have 'Acquire Weapon'. Other abilities and weapon    *
 selections doe not matter.  ***REMEMBER NOT TO CHOOSE A HORSE WHO HAS THE *
 NAME “BEI” IN IT.***                                                      *
                                                                           *
5)Start game.  ONLY fulfill the second battle objective. In other          *
 words, make sure you FAIL the 1st and 3rd objectives. Make sure you       *
 pick up the horse saddle box at the left side of the map. (doesn’t        *
 matter who picked it up). Finish the stage by killing Yuan Shao.          *
                                                                           *
6)Count the weapons and horses you get after this first playthrough.       *
 You should have EXACTLY ONE weapon for each character (from completing    *
 the second objective) and THREE horses total (2 from persuasion, 1 from   *
 the box). If you get any more or any less, you’ve messed up. Exit the     *
 game, reset the time and start from step 1.                               *
                                                                           *
7)If you get the correct number of weapons and horses. SAVE.               *
                                                                           *
8)Repeat step 2 to 7. (Make sure you count the weapons and horses          *
 again at the end of step 6 in the second playthrough, it should           *
 again be EXACTLY ONE weapon for each character (from completing           *
 the second objective) and THREE horses total (2 from persuation,          *
 1 from the box). If you get any more and any less, you’ve messed          *
 up. Exit the game, reset the time and start from step 1)                  *
                                                                           *
9)NOW after the second save. Go ‘Free Mode’ – ‘GuanDu’ – ‘Easy’.           *
 At the character select screen (make sure 2P pressed start), 1P           *
 select GuanYu, 2P Select GuanPin.                                         *
                                                                           *
10)Now at the battle preparation screen, 1P scroll down and select         *
 ‘Exit’ Do NOT start the battle, do NOT use the ‘Start + Select’ switch.   *
 Just highlight and select ‘Exit’ and it’ll bring you back to the game’s   *
 main menu.                                                                *
                                                                           *
11)Now repeat step 2 to 4.                                                 *
                                                                           *
12)Start game. Play. This time make sure you fulfill the 2nd and 3rd       *
 battle objective. NOT the first. And make sure you do NOT pick up the     *
 horse saddle box this time!!! Finish the stage by killing Yuan Shao.      *
                                                                           *
13)Count the weapons and horses you get after this third playthrough.      *
 You should have EXACTLY TWO weapon for each character (from completing    *
 the 2 objectives) and TWO horses total (2 from persuasion, 0 from the     * 
 box). ONE of the horses will be a M/G red hare!!! If you get any more or  *
 any less, you’ve messed up. Exit the game, reset the time and start from  *
step 1.                                                                    *
                                                                           *
14)SAVE if you get the red hare. Now go on and train the horse!            *
                                                                           *
Notes: I highly recommend to kill the least amount of generals as possible *
during this playthough to avoid accidentally picking up any horses and     *
weapons.                                                                   *
                                                                           *
#################                                                          *
                                                                           *
Note: Do NOT pick up any horse saddles during gameplay.                    *
Note: the two character selection MUST be done at the character            *
select screen and get into the game together, in other words, do           *
not add the second character at the battle preparation screen.             *

-------------------------
LEVELING up those horses!
-------------------------
Ok, if you get a M/G horse and you want to make sure you get the 
'Red Hare King' and THREE other special ability you want. Here's 
how: (tested)

OR ENGLISH:  If you got consider the world, heavenly

1) Take your horse to free mode, GuanDu, Easy. Use a maxed character. 
 Do not get off your horse until you kill 50-55 ppl. No less than 50, 
 no more than 55. After you get your KO, get off the horse to avoid 
 killing on the horse. Run straight to Yuan Shao and end the stage. You 
 should acquire 1400 points and your horse is now Level 2. No properties 
 or special ability are added. Good.

2) Take your lv 2 horse to free mode, GuanDu, Easy. Use a maxed character. 
 Do not get off your horse until you kill 40-49 ppl. No less than 40, no more 
 than 49. After you get your KO, get off the horse to avoid killing more on 
 horse. Run straight to Yuan Shao and end the stage. Now your should have 
 LESS than 3000 pts total and your horse will raise to Lv 3. NOW is the 
 critial moment: there's a 50/50 chance that your horse will gain one 
 property (random from ice, lightning and fire) and one special ability. 
 (random from 'Arrow defense', 'Persuasion' and 'Acquire Weapon'). You 
 want to make sure you get the property and the special ability you want 
 right now before you save. So if you didn't get property and ability, 
 don't save, press 'Start + Select' and repeat step 2. If the property 
 and ability is not what you like, don't save, press 'Start + Select' 
 and repeat step 2. Repeat until you get the combination you desired. 
 I always go for ice property and 'arrow defense'

3) Now take your Lv3 horse with property and one special ability to 
 free mode, GuanDu, Easy. Use a maxed character. Do not get off your 
 horse until you kill as many as you want. (don't need to be precise 
 anymore, but more than a 100 is good) After you get your KO, get off
 the horse to avoid killing more on horse. Run straight to Yuan Shao 
 and end the stage.
 Now your horse will reach Lv4 and it'd acquire one special ability 
 aside from the one you just got when you reach lv 2, random from 
'Acquire weapon', 'Musou increase' and 'Ranbu maintain'. Make sure 
 it's the property you want before you save. Otherwise, reset without 
 save and repeat step 3. I always go for 'Ranbu Maintain' here.

4) Now take your Lv4horse with property and two special abilities to free 
 mode, GuanDu, Easy. Use a maxed character. Do not get off your horse 
 until you kill as many as you want. (don't need to be precise anymore, 
 but more than a 100 is good) After you get your KO, get off the horse to 
 avoid killing more on the horse. Run straight to Yuan Shao and end the
 stage. Now your horse will be maxed out to Lv 5. and you'll get 'Red Hare 
 Spirit' PLUS another random ability. Make sure it's the one you want before 
 you save. I like to make sure it's 'Musou Increase'. So here you go. Now a 
 red hare with 'Arrow defense', 'Ranbu Maintain', 'Musou Increase' and 
 'Red Hare Spirit'. The rank of the horse will become Red Hare King and the 
 horse's appearance will change to the huge beast Lubu rides in HuLaoGate.


###  Other Notes  ###

   Check the default stats M/G horses you have when you first get it.
After much testing, we found out that the category of speed will inrease 
by 39 units MAXIMUM at each level up. the category of jump will inrease 
by 49 units MAXIMUM at each level up. the category of breakthrough will 
inrease by 94 units MAXIMUM at each level up. the category of attack 
will inrease by 79 units MAXIMUM at each level up.
There'd be 4 level-ups until your horse stop growing.

THEREFORE, in order to be sure your horse can actually have 500 in all 4 
categories:
Initial speed stat needs to be: 500 - 39 -39 - 39 -39 = 344
Initial jump stat needs to be: 500 - 49 - 49 -49 - 49 = 304
Initial breakthrough stat needs to be: 500 - 94 - 94 -94 -94 = 124 
                                      (140 preferred to To be on the safe 
                                      side because chances are slim that 
                                      you will get maximum growth margin of 
                                      94 every time.)
Initial attack stat needs to be: 500 - 79 - 79 -79 -79 = 184 (200 prefered 
                                 To be on the safe side because chances are 
                                 slim that you are get maximum growth margin 
                                 of 79 every time)

(note:  due to some width restrictions on gamefaqs the right side will be 
continued on the next line for main growth line.  But dont worry its all 
explained and I think you can see what happens.  The "cont."  is where it
will leave off and you will see another "cont." where it continues.

First I’ll explain what the Symbol "looks" like for those who cant read Kanji.

~Liu Bei~
--------
   5a: HISTORY
   ***********
   Starting as a childhood friend of Gongsun Zan, after being nothing more
then a merchant he hired a small force including Zhang Fei, and Guan Yu.
He helped in the Yellow Turban Rebellion and was a Han Descendant.
He later was defeated by Lu Bu and had to seek the aid of Cao Cao who came
with a giant army to crush Lu Bu.  Liu Bei was made aware that the emporer
wanted Cao Cao dead and was in on a plot to assasinate him.  This failed
becuase Liu Bei was sent to deal with Yuan Shu at the time.  Later Liu Bei 
allied with Yuan Shao after his brother Guan Yu was captured.  He saw that 
Yuan Shao would lose so he took his leave to ally with Liu Biao.  After Liao 
Biao made some horrible mistakes he died of illness and Liu Bei with 
Zhuge Liang would set out west.  At Chang Ban Liu Bei and thousands of pesant
followers were chased down by Cao Cao.  Later Liu Bei would ally with Sun
Quan and fight back the massive Cao Cao fleet at Chi Bi.  He even married
Sun Quan's sister to streghten the alliance.  He later would form Shu and 
take the Han Zhong province where he would set up his empire.

   Another great improvement on change.  Liu Bei is now a beast in this game.
He is fast, His combos are sweet, and he got his 2 swords!  The only thing
I dont like about him is is second renbu charge, cuz if you miss you still
jump up into the air.  Kinda of annoying sometimes.

Yellow Turban
Yuan Shu Battle

Yi Ling
Wu Zhang Plains


Yellow Turban Rebellion
-----------------------
Obj.1 (300): In under 5 minutes lower the drawbridge.
Obj.2 (300): In under 15 minutes defeat Zhang Liang then Zhang Man Cheng
             personally
Obj.3 (500): In under 20 minutes take out Zhang Jiao with He Jin and Huang
             Fu in Zhang Jiao's base.

    This one pretty straight foward.  Go through the first base and 
head to center.  Take down the drawbridge.  Then go up NE corner
and take out officer guarding the flame lions.  Proceed to the magician
next to the NE pot and destroy pot.  Then go around to left magician and
take him and his pot out.  Think you have to do the right side first.
DO NOT take out Zhang Jiao's base until HE Jin is inside it. All 3 done!


Yuan Shu Campaign
-----------------
Obj.1 (300):  In 10 minutes take out south archer base
Obj.2 (300):  In 15 minutes kill 7 enemy officers
Obj.3 (500):  9 allies survive until Yuan Shu base taken

    Head to NE hill and when you near the peasants they will join you
and run off map.  They count as part of the 9 you need alive.
Take out SE base after that then run back up to middle base where allies
are fighting.   Jump down and take out that base and guys.  Run across the 
center island and south through a base to get to the archer base.  After
you take the archer base jump down into the water and cross back to join
the onslaught of the main base.  Watch for reinforcements in SE!



Chang Ban
---------
Obj.1 (300):  kill 300
Obj.2 (300):  2 peasants reach docks
Obj.3 (500):  All peasants reach docks

     Be fast and Have a fast horse!  Do this in order if you want ALL
the peasants alive.  Go save east peasant first.  (Also make sure you
wait near peasant after saving to hear them mumble something or they 
WONT follow you!)  Now go to SE peasant and save him, then go to near 
base west of this one and clear it for him.  Now very fast rush back 
middle and save the first peasant again and clear him a path this time.
Go west and take out Zhang He and surrounding officers.  REMEBER, be
quick(NO DUELS).  Now go north again and jump down to your base and 
save this peasant.(Don’t forget to talk to him after you save.  This one
likes to wait around!)  And Finally leave that base and cross the bridge 
north and then wrap around to the left and cross another bridge.  The 
last Peasant will be getting chased in circles.  Save him quick and rush
back to center where all you allies will be fighting trying to protect 
the front line peasants.  Get there quick because Xiahou Dun appears soon
and you must take him and his friends out before losing any peasants.
After this they can safely make it to the exit, so you can go back and
play clean up.  NOTE, if you take out the double base, your allies use
it as a shortcut.


Cheng Du
--------
Obj.1 (300):  In under 10 minutes take out north and south archer bases
Obj.2 (300):  In under 10 minutes, take over 3rd gate, 2nd, and 1st gates
Obj.3 (300):  Pang Tong is not defeated

     This is one of the hardest levels if you are not fast enough.  First
thing you should do is go around and take all the gates.  If you dont do it 
all at once the enemy WILL take them back.  Once you get all 3 it doesnt
matter if they get taken cuz you already got the objective.  After that you
should run across and jump down middle if Pang TOng is in trouble now.  Just
kill the officers near him and then as quick as you can go get the archer
bases.  They are in akward spots so pay attention to your map and dont go 
up the wrong path.


Yi Ling
-------
Obj.1 (300):  For 10 minutes 6 or more allies survive
Obj.2 (300):  Stone sentinal maze not broken through
Obj.3 (500):  In under 20 minutes defeat all officers

    Another one you got to be fast in.  Go south and take as many bases
and generals out as you can before the fire attack. After the fire attack
run back into the fire area and save your allies being attacked by Gan
Ning and his buddies.  Careful Gan Ning is Fury mode.  After this go back
south and kill officers on way to stone sentinel maze.  Enter from south
and find you way through by pressing R2.  DO NOT let any enemies enter 
center of maze.  So hunt them down in the outside walls, usually Lu Xun 
is first then Ling Tong.  After clearing the maze, finish the level!


Wu Zhang Plains
---------------
Obj.1 (300):  In 25 minutes, kill 15 officers
Obj.2 (300):  Wei Yan is not defeated
Obj.3 (800):  For 10 minutes, all frontline bases are not taken

     This one is not to bad for being a last level.  The generals will
be a bit tougher but the progression is pretty straigtfoward.  You can
jump down in the beginning and finish off the ambushes troops if you 
want or let the allies do it.  Watch Wei Yan becasue he will charge the 
main enemy base after certain paths are cleared.  So I would suggest 
cleaning up the east side of map first after saving the frontline bases.
Then you will see 2 generals trying to go the back way to hit your main camp.
Go back and kill them, then go save Wei Yan again and clear his path.  Right
about now you should get more troops trying to take your frontline bases.  
So go back and defeat them from left to right or vice versa.  Then again, go
back and save Wei Yan and finish level.

~Guan Yu~
-------
   5a: HISTORY
   ***********

   In his younger years he traveled with Liu Bei and Zhang Fei, as their 
brother.  He was appointed a commander after helping squash the Yellow Turban
Rebellion.  After Liu Bei had taken over XiaoPei from Cao Cao, Cao Cao 
retalliated with force and took it back and captured Guan Yu who had been 
stationed at Xi Pia.  Under the short service of Cao Cao he helped 
crush Yuan Shao at Guan Du by killing his two best officers.  When he left
Cao Cao to return to his brothers he had to slay 5 of his former Cao Cao 
allies in order to escape.  He then released Cao Cao during the Chi Bi 
retreat becuase Cao Cao had let him return to his brothers.  Guan Yu led
many succesful northern campaigns but was defeated later by a plot of 
Lu Meng.  Lu Meng had spread rumors and gotten past his watchtowers and
attacked Fan Castle.  In Guan Yu's retreat he was surrounded and taken 
down by a coilition of Wei and Wu.

DO NOT take out Zhang Jiao's base until HE Jin is inside it. All 3 done!



Hu Lao Gate
-----------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes take out center and NE archer bases
Obj.2 (300)  In under 15 minutes open one of the Hu Lao Gates
Obj.3 (1000)  Kill Lu BU

    First of all, take out the close officers then circle around to get the
closest archer base.  I would kill Zhang Liao as you work your way to the
second archer base.  Then after cleaning up head toward Hu Lao Gate.  As
soon as you see a ladder go up get up it and take out the 6 arbilists.  You
will prolly have to take out the gate guards.  Once Lu Bu comes out you can
go kill him for the 3rd objective.  But He is VERY tough in this level, so 
you might wanna have at least a level 20 guy.



Battle of Guan Du
-----------------
Obj.1 (300)  Kill Yan Liang and Wen Chou personally
Obj.2 (300)  Guan Du castle gates not broken into
Obj.3 (500)  Middle forts not taken over

     This level gave me hell so many times when I first started playing the
game.  If you have trouble just go level up in a free mode level.  First
the toughest part is to keep those bases up.  They get pounded by massive
amounts of generals.  BEFORE all this though, run to the far left and take 
out the guy trying to sneak around to your main base.  After killing him
head to middle base and clear out everyone except Yan Liang(or Wen Chou, 
depending which base you do first).  While Yan Liang is swimming across go
take out EVERYONE on the other base, wait to finish them ALL off.  Then 
return to the first base and take out Yan Liang and whoever else you left.
There will be ambush to try to break your main base so watch for it and be
fast.  But the Middle is priority cuz it falls fast.




Battle of Chi Bi
----------------
Obj.1 (300)  Huang Gai's fire attack succeeds
Obj.2 (300)  In under 10 minutes take center and west tower ships
Obj.3 (500)  No allies defeated

     Clear out close by officers, then head to help Zhuge Liang.  After he
Succeeds you should clear a way for Huang Gai.  Then head out for the bases.
This one might seem like a lot is goin on, but its pretty easy to keep 
everyone alive as long as the fire attack succeeds.  Also hitting the gongs
on the movable ships always helps ally troops move about easier.




Battle of FAn Castle
--------------------
Obj.1 (300)  Water attack works
Obj.2 (300)  Guan Ping not killed
Obj.3 (300)  In under 10 minutes take North and West camps, and archer base

     This level will be VERY hard if the water attack fails.  SO be sure
to keep good ol Guan Ping alive.  After all its the only thing he does in
the whole game!  You will lose allies to betrayal, kill them quick becuase
they will drop morale every 20 seconds they are alive.  This one usually
ends up with many allies dead but dont worry as long as you keep your bases
and Guan PIng you should be fine.



Wu Zhang Plains
---------------
Obj.1 (300):  In 25 minutes, kill 15 officers
Obj.2 (300):  Wei Yan is not defeated
Obj.3 (800):  For 10 minutes, all frontline bases are not taken

     This one is not to bad for being a last level.  The generals will
be a bit tougher but the progression is pretty straigtfoward.  You can

~Zhang Fei~ 
---------
   5a: HISTORY
   ***********

    Zhang Fei, the loyal Brother of Liu Bei and Guan Yu, who started as
a simple fighter alongside his brothers in the Yellow Turban Rebellion, 
he later became one of Shu's fiercest generals.  As one of the five tiger 
generals, his name was feared by all on the battlefield.  His greatest 
moment of glory was when he held Chang Ban bridge by himself against 
Cao Cao’s army with a mighty shout and eyes filled with fiery rage, 
none dared oppose him.  He also used a brilliant tactic where he tied 
logs to his army’s horses and made them run in order to create dust to 
trick Cao Cao’s army into thinking that Zhang Fei has a larger army.  
He married Xiahou Yuan's daughter and had two daughters of his own.  
They would both end up marrying the incapable Liu Chan, the marriage was 
arranged by Zhuge Liang.  Zhang Fei had an obssesion with alcohol and 
this led to his death by his own men.  One night when he learned of his 
sworn brother’s, Guan Yu, death he went into a drunken stupor and flogged 
his own soldiers.  Two of the beaten soldiers stabbed and killed him in his 
sleep afterwards.

    Zhang Fei is AMAZING in this game!  They made him really good now.  
In fact maybe one of my new favs!  He has got quick combos, awesome

Obj.1 (300):  In under 5 minutes take out south or west gate
Obj.2 (300):  In under 15 minutes take out all bases inside castle
Obj.3 (500):  In under 10 minutes kill Zhang Liao and Diao CHan

    Run toward south castle gate and take out the base on the way.  This will
help allies move quicker to aid.  Then go clear the area near south gate of
guards.  Your ally ladders should start to build.   Meanwhile you can go 
around to west gate and kill officer there.  Go back to south gate and 
there should be a ladder up.  Climb up it and destroy BOTH arbalests.  
Make sure no enemy officers or guards are near the ramming device now.
If not you can go kill Zhang Liao and Diao Chan.  Your allies should bust
through door about 4.5 minutes in.  After killing Diao Chan, Lu Bu will
charge your main base.  Clean up the rest and let allies take all the 
bases while you hunt down guys.  Then go take out Lu BU.  He in fury 
mode so be careful.


Yuan Shu Campaign
-----------------
Obj.1 (300):  In 10 minutes take out south archer base
Obj.2 (300):  In 15 minutes kill 7 enemy officers
Obj.3 (500):  9 allies survive until Yuan Shu base taken

    Head to NE hill and when you near the peasants they will join you
and run off map.  They count as part of the 9 you need alive.
Take out SE base after that then run back up to middle base where allies
are fighting.   Jump down and take out that base and guys.  Run across the 
center island and south through a base to get to the archer base.  After
you take the archer base jump down into the water and cross back to join
the onslaught of the main base.  Watch for reinforcements in SE!


Chang Ban
---------
Obj.1 (300):  kill 300
Obj.2 (300):  2 peasants reach docks
Obj.3 (500):  All peasants reach docks

     Be fast and Have a fast horse!  Do this in order if you want ALL
the peasants alive.  Go save east peasant first.  (Also make sure you
wait near peasant after saving to hear them mumble something or they 
WONT follow you!)  Now go to SE peasant and save him, then go to near 
base west of this one and clear it for him.  Now very fast rush back 
middle and save the first peasant again and clear him a path this time.
Go west and take out Zhang He and surrounding officers.  REMEBER, be
quick(NO DUELS).  Now go north again and jump down to your base and 
save this peasant.(Don’t forget to talk to him after you save.  This one
likes to wait around!)  And Finally leave that base and cross the bridge 
north and then wrap around to the left and cross another bridge.  The 
last Peasant will be getting chased in circles.  Save him quick and rush
back to center where all you allies will be fighting trying to protect 
the front line peasants.  Get there quick because Xiahou Dun appears soon
and you must take him and his friends out before losing any peasants.
After this they can safely make it to the exit, so you can go back and
play clean up.  NOTE, if you take out the double base, your allies use
it as a shortcut.


Yi Ling
-------
Obj.1 (300):  For 10 minutes 6 or more allies survive
Obj.2 (300):  Stone sentinal maze not broken through
Obj.3 (500):  In under 20 minutes defeat all officers

    Another one you got to be fast in.  Go south and take as many bases
and generals out as you can before the fire attack. After the fire attack
run back into the fire area and save your allies being attacked by Gan
Ning and his buddies.  Careful Gan Ning is Fury mode.  After this go back
south and kill officers on way to stone sentinel maze.  Enter from south
and find you way through by pressing R2.  DO NOT let any enemies enter 
center of maze.  So hunt them down in the outside walls, usually Lu Xun 
is first then Ling Tong.  After clearing the maze, finish the level!


Han Zhong
---------
Obj.1 (400):  In 15 minutes take west and northest forts
Obj.2 (400):  In under 15 minutes kill Sima Yi, Zhang HE, and Cao Pi 
Obj.3 (500):  In 30 minutes kill all officers

    Rush north and chase down the fleeing officer past the near base.  Now
go back to lower center where you will see Zhang He ambushing your allies.
Go assist, then return to the first base near your start point.  Go
through the base to right and the door is blocked by rockslide behind you.
Now go across middle and to east section.  Take out archer base and generals
on east side across the bridge.  After go north and back west across 
another bridge and take out Cao Pi and Zhen Ji, then the near base.  When
you enter Cao Cao's base reinforcements come in from NE.  Dont forget to

   This character hasnt changed to much from previous DW's.  He is still
pretty average.  I mean for having a fan for a weapon.  Some of his charge
renbu's are pretty cool with the lasers and effects.  I think they crossed
him with Zuo Ci, but made him a little slower.  Overall not bad when you 
level him up.  His defense is kinda low though.

Battle of Chi Bi
----------------
Obj.1 (300)  Huang Gai's fire attack succeeds
Obj.2 (300)  In under 10 minutes take center and west tower ships
Obj.3 (500)  No allies defeated

     Clear out close by officers, then head to help Zhuge Liang.  After he
Succeeds you should clear a way for Huang Gai.  Then head out for the bases.
This one might seem like a lot is goin on, but its pretty easy to keep 
everyone alive as long as the fire attack succeeds.




Cheng Du
--------
Obj.1 (300):  In under 10 minutes take out north and south archer bases
Obj.2 (300):  In under 10 minutes, take over 3rd gate, 2nd, and 1st gates
Obj.3 (300):  Pang Tong is not defeated

     This is one of the hardest levels if you are not fast enough.  First
thing you should do is go around and take all the gates.  If you dont do it 
all at once the enemy WILL take them back.  Once you get all 3 it doesnt
matter if they get taken cuz you already got the objective.  After that you
should run across and jump down middle if Pang TOng is in trouble now.  Just
kill the officers near him and then as quick as you can go get the archer
bases.  They are in akward spots so pay attention to your map and dont go 
up the wrong path.



Mt. Ding Jun
------------
Obj.1 (300)  With Huang Zhong alive, kill Xiahou Yuan
Obj.2 (300)  Take both mountains in under 15 minutes
Obj.3 (700)  No allies killed

     Watch your generic ally generals in this level.  They will get killed
quick if you you dont protect them.  In the first couple minutes there 
should be some enemies that try to take your base.  Take out any close 
ambush then take climb the first mountain.  Dont worry about killing guys
till you get to the top.  Once that mountain is taken then jump down and 
finish up the close by generals....unless Huang Zhong is struggling.  Then
go kill Xiahou Yuan in the middle.  After this take the other mountain
and your as good as done.  Watch allies thoughout in case you need to go 
save them.




Han Zhong
---------
Obj.1 (400):  In 15 minutes take west and northest forts
Obj.2 (400):  In under 15 minutes kill Sima Yi, Zhang HE, and Cao Pi 
Obj.3 (500):  In 30 minutes kill all officers

    Rush north and chase down the fleeing officer past the near base.  Now
go back to lower center where you will see Zhang He ambushing your allies.
Go assist, then return to the first base near your start point.  Go
through the base to right and the door is blocked by rockslide behind you.
Now go across middle and to east section.  Take out archer base and generals
on east side across the bridge.  After go north and back west across 
another bridge and take out Cao Pi and Zhen Ji, then the near base.  When
you enter Cao Cao's base reinforcements come in from NE.  Dont forget to 
take out SIMA Yi personally BEFORE Cao Cao; and you will unlock
Zhang He!



Wu Zhang Plains
---------------
Obj.1 (300):  In 25 minutes, kill 15 officers
Obj.2 (300):  Wei Yan is not defeated
Obj.3 (800):  For 10 minutes, all frontline bases are not taken

     This one is not to bad for being a last level.  The generals will
be a bit tougher but the progression is pretty straigtfoward.  You can
jump down in the beginning and finish off the ambushes troops if you 
want or let the allies do it.  Watch Wei Yan becasue he will charge the 
main enemy base after certain paths are cleared.  So I would suggest 
cleaning up the east side of map first after saving the frontline bases.
Then you will see 2 generals trying to go the back way to hit your main camp.
Go back and kill them, then go save Wei Yan again and clear his path.  Right
about now you should get more troops trying to take your frontline bases.  
So go back and defeat them from left to right or vice versa.  Then again, go
back and save Wei Yan and finish level.  Dont worry kongming doesnt really
die.

~Cao Cao~

   5a HISTORY
   **********
   
   Born under a foster family of Cao, he was actually a Xiahou.  A crafty
young man that helped take part in the yellow turban rebellion.  He was in
command of a large cavalry force and was later promoted to govenor for his 
accomplishments.  When Dong Zhuo took over the capital and killed the 
ten eunuchs, Cao Cao joined forces with Yuan Shao to squash the rebellion.
Cao Cao secured the emporer and the throne and convinced the capital be 
moved to Xu Chang.  He also recommend that Yuan Shao be made Chief advisor
so to keep good relations with him.  Yuan Shao took this as an insult
and later led to Guan Du.  He then united the north but was held at the 
Yangtze river when Liu Bei and Sun Quan stood agaisnt him.  The three 
kingdoms were formed and Cao Cao would consolidate his power.  Forming
the basis for a storng army and economy he led the Wei empire to prosper
until his death when Cao Pi took over.

Hu Lao Gate
-----------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes take out center and NE archer bases
Obj.2 (300)  In under 15 minutes open one of the Hu Lao Gates
Obj.3 (1000)  Kill Lu BU

    First of all, take out the close officers then circle around to get the
closest archer base.  I would kill Zhang Liao as you work your way to the
second archer base.  Then after cleaning up head toward Hu Lao Gate.  As
soon as you see a ladder go up get up it and take out the 6 arbilists.  You
will prolly have to take out the gate guards.  Once Lu Bu comes out you can
go kill him for the 3rd objective.  But He is VERY tough in this level, so 
you might wanna have at least a level 20 guy.



Battle of Guan Du
-----------------
Obj.1 (300)  Kill Yan Liang and Wen Chou personally
Obj.2 (300)  Guan Du castle gates not broken into
Obj.3 (500)  Middle forts not taken over

     This level gave me hell so many times when I first started playing the
game.  If you have trouble just go level up in a free mode level.  First
the toughest part is to keep those bases up.  They get pounded by massive
amounts of generals.  BEFORE all this though, run to the far left and take 
out the guy trying to sneak around to your main base.  After killing him
head to middle base and clear out everyone except Yan Liang(or Wen Chou, 
depending which base you do first).  While Yan Liang is swimming across go
take out EVERYONE on the other base, wait to finish them ALL off.  Then 
return to the first base and take out Yan Liang and whoever else you left.
There will be ambush to try to break your main base so watch for it and be
fast.  But the Middle is priority cuz it falls fast.




Chi Bi
------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 5 minutes, take out west archer base
Obj.2 (300)  In under 10 minutes take east and north bases
Obj.3 (500)  Maintain 70% of health

     Well its not gonna be easy to keep that health that high.  First take
out the archer base, yes you have to swim there.  Dont forget to hit the
drum by the near ship to make it move.  Then go down and kill Zhuge Liang
and move the next closest ship.  These ships moving will make it easier to
for allies to help you.  In fact you might wanna do this first if your fast
so you can maintain that health.  After killing Zhuge, I would go take
the east and north bases, and maybe even Pang Tong if he still around.
Then you can either finish off Sun Quan or go clean up the forces on your
ally ships.  But be careful if you go back to the burning ships, they WILL
drop your health below 70%



     
Mt. Ding Jun
------------
Obj.1 (300)  With Xiahou Yuan alive kill Huang Zhong
Obj.2 (300)  In under 15 minutes take both mountain peak bases
Obj.3 (700)  No allies defeated
     
     Gotta be kinda quick on this one.  I would work your way to the closest
mountain base and take it.  The officers are pretty strong in this level, so 
be careful.  Then I would go get Huang Zhong before he chops Yuan in half.
Then you can work your way to the other mountain base keeping an eye on 
any allies that are struggling.




Shi Ting
--------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes kill Xiao Qiao, Gan Ning, and Ling Tong
Obj.2 (300)  In under 15 minutes take west archer base and south fort
Obj.3 (500)  7 or more allies survive including Cao Xiu

     Run up the near hill and take out nearby officers.  Head north to where
Xiao Qiao is and kill her.  Then follow path to center and rush to save
Cao Xiu.  Ling Tong should be here, so kill him to.  There is a horse
box just outside that base on south side if you want it.  After this go to 
the west archer base, then jump down and go get the south base.  Then just 
go get Gan Ning and finish playing clean up and protecting your allies.  Sun
Quan is kinda tough at the end so be careful.




Wu Zhang Plains
---------------
Obj.1 (300)  Kill Guan Ping and Yue Ying personally
Obj.2 (500)  Protect all camps on frontline
Obj.3 (800)  7 allies survive

     Jump down and cross river.  First save 2 right bases and take
out the close officers.  Then do the same for the left bases.  Follow the
left side middle path that should wrap around to Guan Ping.  Kill him
then go get Yue Ying.  Now jump down and save allied troops being ambushed.
Soon ambushes will appear and try to take your bases.  You must hurry back
and defeat them or you wil lose Objective 2.  At the end Liu Bei and 
Zhuge Liang are together so be careful.

   A man of great respect, he often gave his extra wealth among the common

then pulled the arrow out and ate it to instill fear in the enemy.  He later
was held hostage by some traitors that worked with Lu Bu to capture him 
in his own tent.  Han Hao later rescued him with a smarter force.  He also
led many agricultural programs to help the people.  Dun fought agaisnt 
Liu Bei at Bo wang Po and was ambushed by a fire attack.  He suffered many
losses after his success of the campaign agaisnt Dong Zhou.  He later

-------------------
Obj.1 (300)  Kill 300
Obj.2 (300)  Kill Zhang Fei
Obj.3 (500)  No pesants killed

     Be careful not to kill the peasents, they will get in your way when you
are taking out other officers.  They are also VERY easy to kill.  Zhang Fei
is a beast, so unless you have a leveled up character, go around him.  You 
can also kill him before he gets to the bridge and he wont be in fury mode.
Make sure you cut through the double base so you can cut off Liu Bei.  If 
Liu Bei makes it to the ships its game over.  Guan Yu will be guarding the 
double base but he is not in fury mode so he not that hard.  If you decide 
to go for Zhao Yun when he arrives be careful not to let Liu Bei past.  Liu
Bei runs even when you are striking him.

Obj.2 (300)  In under 20 minutes, kill Sun Quan and Lu Meng
Obj.3 (600)  In under 20 minutes, finish first 2 objectives

     This battle starts pretty easy.  You must go lower the drawbridge
before Gan Ning appears or he will do it, and you lose the chance.  Clear
the middle area first and take the bases.  Lu Meng will be here and he is 
tough in this level.  Gan Ning will be in fury mode so dont let him take 
out all the allies he runs too.  Take the west fort and watch for ambushes.
Then go finish off Sun Quan.

     This level gave me hell so many times when I first started playing the
game.  If you have trouble just go level up in a free mode level.  First
the toughest part is to keep those bases up.  They get pounded by massive
amounts of generals.  BEFORE all this though, run to the far left and take 
out the guy trying to sneak around to your main base.  After killing him
head to middle base and clear out everyone except Yan Liang(or Wen Chou, 
depending which base you do first).  While Yan Liang is swimming across go
take out EVERYONE on the other base, wait to finish them ALL off.  Then 
return to the first base and take out Yan Liang and whoever else you left.
There will be ambush to try to break your main base so watch for it and be
fast.  But the Middle is priority cuz it falls fast.




Battle at Chang Ban
-------------------
Obj.1 (300)  Kill 300
Obj.2 (300)  Kill Zhang Fei
Obj.3 (500)  No pesants killed

     Be careful not to kill the peasents, they will get in your way when you
are taking out other officers.  They are also VERY easy to kill.  Zhang Fei
is a beast, so unless you have a leveled up character, go around him.  You 
can also kill him before he gets to the bridge and he wont be in fury mode.
Make sure you cut through the double base so you can cut off Liu Bei.  If 
Liu Bei makes it to the ships its game over.  Guan Yu will be guarding the 
double base but he is not in fury mode so he not that hard.  If you decide 
to go for Zhao Yun when he arrives be careful not to let Liu Bei past.  Liu
Bei runs even when you are striking him.



Fan Castle
----------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes take Fan east and west forts
Obj.2 (300)  Xu Huang not killed
Obj.3 (500)  All bases inside castle must survive

     Well Wu and Wei and working together on this one.  You have alot
more officers then the enemy, but they drop like flies so make sure you
dont waste time getting things done.  I would start by rushing down and
trying to defend your left gate.  After clearing out most officers, Xu Huang
should be getting wasted.  Go save him and then take out the enemy forts.
If you have a chance to kill Guan Ping DO IT!  It will stop the water attack
and save a ton of morale.  If not you are gonna have to watch your allied 
bases from being taken over.  You can also get 2 officers to defect if you
approach them before the flood.  Sometimes it wastes too much time though 
and doing this you will lose Xu Huang or a chance to get Guan Ping.  Either 
way they are across the bridge of both your gates.  THey just sit there.




Battle of He Fei CASTLE
-----------------------
Obj.1 (300)  North trap not broken through
Obj.2 (300)  Center trap not broken through
Obj.3 (300)  East trap not broken through

     If you have been using this level as your weapon harvest level, im sure
you know the setup well by now.  You will start in the center of map.  The
enemy is all over the place in this one so you gotta be quick.  Get to the
near center trap and clear enemies out.  Then head west becuase there will
be a group of guys running around the backside of castle.  Take them and then 
go over to east side.  KNOW YOUR MAP.  Its easy to get lost with all the 
passages in this one and one wrong step could cost you a trap.  Dont forget
to watch for ambushes.  After you clean up just jump down to finish Sun
Quan off his boat.

   Was a former subject of Dong Zhou, but turned on him with Lu Bu to fight
against the tyranny of Dong Zhou.  Zhang Liao was later captured alongside
Lu Bu at Xia Pi.  Showing courage and fearlessness in the face of the 
execution, Cao Cao let him live.  He then vowed his life in Cao Cao's 
service.  He helped in the campaigns against Yuan Shao in the north.
His greatest accomplishment was at He Fei, where he would lead several
ambushes agaisnt Sun Quan's massive army.  Zhang Liao led 7000 men to 
hold off 200,000 of Sun Quan's men.  Zhang Liao later then charged through
the vanguard and came within a few meters of cutting off Sun Quan's head.
With his success at ambush and tactics, his name became feared on the 
battlefeild.

------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 5 minutes, take out west archer base
Obj.2 (300)  In under 10 minutes take east and north bases
Obj.3 (500)  Maintain 70% of health

     Well its not gonna be easy to keep that health that high.  First take
out the archer base, yes you have to swim there.  Dont forget to hit the
drum by the near ship to make it move.  Then go down and kill Zhuge Liang
and move the next closest ship.  These ships moving will make it easier to
for allies to help you.  In fact you might wanna do this first if your fast
so you can maintain that health.  After killing Zhuge, I would go take
the east and north bases, and maybe even Pang Tong if he still around.
Then you can either finish off Sun Quan or go clean up the forces on your
ally ships.  But be careful if you go back to the burning ships, they WILL
drop your health below 70%



Battle at He Fei
----------------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes take west fort and lower drawbridge
Obj.2 (300)  In under 20 minutes, kill Sun Quan and Lu Meng
Obj.3 (600)  In under 20 minutes, finish first 2 objectives

     This battle starts pretty easy.  You must go lower the drawbridge
before Gan Ning appears or he will do it, and you lose the chance.  Clear
the middle area first and take the bases.  Lu Meng will be here and he is 
tough in this level.  Gan Ning will be in fury mode so dont let him take 
out all the allies he runs too.  Take the west fort and watch for ambushes.
Then go finish off Sun Quan.




Shi Ting

Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes kill Xiao Qiao, Gan Ning, and Ling Tong
Obj.2 (300)  In under 15 minutes take west archer base and south fort
Obj.3 (500)  7 or more allies survive including Cao Xiu

     Run up the near hill and take out nearby officers.  Head north to where
Xiao Qiao is and kill her.  Then follow path to center and rush to save
Cao Xiu.  Ling Tong should be here, so kill him to.  There is a horse
box just outside that base on south side if you want it.  After this go to 
the west archer base, then jump down and go get the south base.  Then just 
go get Gan Ning and finish playing clean up and protecting your allies.  Sun
Quan is kinda tough at the end so be careful.

Obj.3 (700)  No allies defeated
     
     Gotta be kinda quick on this one.  I would work your way to the closest
mountain base and take it.  The officers are pretty strong in this level, so 
be careful.  Then I would go get Huang Zhong before he chops Yuan in half.
Then you can work your way to the other mountain base keeping an eye on 
any allies that are struggling.



Fan Castle
----------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes take Fan east and west forts
Obj.2 (300)  Xu Huang not killed
Obj.3 (500)  All bases inside castle must survive

     Well Wu and Wei and working together on this one.  You have alot
more officers then the enemy, but they drop like flies so make sure you
dont waste time getting things done.  I would start by rushing down and
trying to defend your left gate.  After clearing out most officers, Xu Huang
should be getting wasted.  Go save him and then take out the enemy forts.
If you have a chance to kill Guan Ping DO IT!  It will stop the water attack
and save a ton of morale.  If not you are gonna have to watch your allied 
bases from being taken over.  You can also get 2 officers to defect if you
approach them before the flood.  Sometimes it wastes too much time though 
and doing this you will lose Xu Huang or a chance to get Guan Ping.  Either 
way they are across the bridge of both your gates.  THey just sit there.



Han Zhong

Obj.1 (300)  In under 15 minutes, take east archer base and SW camp
Obj.2 (300)  In under 15 minutes kill Ma Chao, Zhang Fei, Zhao Yun
Obj.3 (500)  In under 10 minutes, kill 500 and 10 officers

     This one is pretty easy if you just remember to rack up the kills.
Also dont forget to kill the officers you need to personally if you want 
the Objective, I found the allies takin out some of the officers if your
morale is high.  Just get the bases and you should be able to get all 3
no problem within 10 minutes!



Wu Zhang Plains
---------------
Obj.1 (300)  Kill Guan Ping and Yue Ying personally
Obj.2 (500)  Protect all camps on frontline
Obj.3 (800)  7 allies survive

     Jump down and cross river.  First save 2 right bases and take
out the close officers.  Then do the same for the left bases.  Follow the
left side middle path that should wrap around to Guan Ping.  Kill him
then go get Yue Ying.  Now jump down and save allied troops being ambushed.
Soon ambushes will appear and try to take your bases.  You must hurry back
and defeat them or you wil lose Objective 2.  At the end Liu Bei and 
Zhuge Liang are together so be careful.



Xu Du(Jin Dynasty)
------------------
Obj.1 (300)  Under 10 minutes open Xu Du inner gate
Obj.2 (300)  Main Ally base not broken into
Obj.3 (300)  No allies killed

     Take out guards by first gate then go around to west side and enter
the castle.  Go back to front gate and take out arbilists and any close
officers.  Now go clear out area by inner gate and if a ladder is put up
try to get over the wall and do some more cleaning up while waiting for the 
door to come down.  Careful of fire attack near inner gate.  Now just play
clean up and dont let any allies die.

say his force was responsible for the death of Hui Xiong, not Guan Yu.  
Hui Xiong was a feared general under Dong Zhou, his strongest until Lu Bu

-----------------------
Obj.1 (300): In under 5 minutes lower the drawbridge.
Obj.2 (300): In under 15 minutes defeat Zhang Liang then Zhang Man Cheng
             personally
Obj.3 (500): In under 20 minutes take out Zhang Jiao with He Jin and Huang
             Fu in Zhang Jiao's base.

    This one pretty straight foward.  Go through the first base and 
head to center.  Take down the drawbridge.  Then go up NE corner
and take out officer guarding the flame lions.  Proceed to the magician
next to the NE pot and destroy pot.  Then go around to left magician and
take him and his pot out.  Think you have to do the right side first.
DO NOT take out Zhang Jiao's base until HE Jin is inside it. All 3 done!





Hu Lao Gate
-----------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes take out center and NE archer bases
Obj.2 (300)  In under 15 minutes open one of the Hu Lao Gates
Obj.3 (1000)  Kill Lu BU

    First of all, take out the close officers then circle around to get the
closest archer base.  I would kill Zhang Liao as you work your way to the
second archer base.  Then after cleaning up head toward Hu Lao Gate.  As
soon as you see a ladder go up get up it and take out the 6 arbilists.  You
will prolly have to take out the gate guards.  Once Lu Bu comes out you can
go kill him for the 3rd objective.  But He is VERY tough in this level, so 
you might wanna have at least a level 20 guy.




Xia Pi
------
Obj.1 (300)  Dont let Zhou Yu, Sun Ce, or Sun Quan die
Obj.2 (300)  Main ally base not broken into
Obj.3 (500)  For 15 minutes 6 bases survive

     Your allies are pretty strong here, so you dont really need to 
protect them.  Just go wreak havoc and watch your ally bases.  Those will 
need help more then anything.  Once you have got a lock on your bases then
I would scale the wall and clear the arbilists so you can get the gates
open.  After you enter watch for ambushes outside again.



Jing Zhou
---------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes kill 500 
Obj.2 (300)  In under 10 minutes kill Guan Yu and Zhang Fei
Obj.3 (500)  No allies killed

    The hardest part will be to take out 500 guys.  You can get a large 
number if you kill peons while near Guan Yu.  Then do the same when near
Zhang Fei.  Be careful when fighting them, because they both have another
strong playable general near them.  Another easy level.


Fan Castle
----------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 5 minutes open one of castle gates
Obj.2 (300)  In under 10 minutes kill Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei
Obj.3 (500)  Maintain life over 30%

    If I remember right, you need to take this level slow.  Both Zhang Fei
and Guan Yu are in Fury mode and if they work you too much you will lose 
Obj.3.  The First thing is to always get up a ladder and take out the 
arbilists.  So clear out anyone trying to take out your ladder guys.  After
you clear out the ledge of arbilists you can go for Guan Yu, who will be 
heading out north.  Make sure you get the kills personally.


He Fei
------
Obj.1 (200)  In under 5 minutes kill Cao Pi
Obj.2 (300)  In under 20 minutes, take west fort and He Fei castle
Obj.3 (500)  In under 30 minutes, kill all officers

    Yes, this is it.  The level that everyone couldnt figure out where
to get Cao Pi.  Well its here.  Run north to Cao Pi and kill him quick.
He will have a good backup force so use skill or have a built up character.
After this the rest of the level you can take your time.  Watch for ambush
and just dont die.  Easy enough?  Then you beat the level and should
get Cao Pi!

Obj.1 (300)  In under 5 minutes open front gate
Obj.2 (300)  In under 5 minutes take West fort and NW fort.
Obj.3 (500)  In under 10 minutes take all archer bases

    This will be one of the hardest level to get all objectives.  You MUST
be fast, MUST.  So get a fast horse and head straight to the gate.  At
least the music cool in this level.  You have 5 minutes to do 3 things.
Run to front gate and take out all the guards and if you spot a ladder 
within the first 45 seconds then get up it and take out those arbilists.
Either way, within a 1.5 minutes you need to be headin to the west side
fort.  Take it then head north and around the back of castle.  You will
find a path that leads directly to the other fort you need to take.  It 
will have a door you need to break through.  DO NOT try taking a path inside 
castle, it will take way too long.  By the time you get both bases, your 
army should be inside the gate.  Now just go get the rest of those archer 
bases!



Battle of Chi Bi
----------------
Obj.1 (300)  Huang Gai's fire attack succeeds
Obj.2 (300)  In under 10 minutes take center and west tower ships
Obj.3 (500)  No allies defeated

     Clear out close by officers, then head to help Zhuge Liang.  After he
Succeeds you should clear a way for Huang Gai.  Then head out for the bases.
This one might seem like a lot is goin on, but its pretty easy to keep 
everyone alive as long as the fire attack succeeds.  Also hitting the gongs
on the movable ships always helps ally troops move about easier.




Cheng Du
--------
Obj.1 (300):  In under 10 minutes take out north and south archer bases
Obj.2 (300):  In under 10 minutes, take over 3rd gate, 2nd, and 1st gates
Obj.3 (300):  Pang Tong is not defeated

     This is one of the hardest levels if you are not fast enough.  First
thing you should do is go around and take all the gates.  If you dont do it 
all at once the enemy WILL take them back.  Once you get all 3 it doesnt
matter if they get taken cuz you already got the objective.  After that you
should run across and jump down middle if Pang TOng is in trouble now.  Just
kill the officers near him and then as quick as you can go get the archer
bases.  They are in akward spots so pay attention to your map and dont go 
up the wrong path.




Yi Ling
-------
Obj.1 (300)  Enter the stone maze in under 5 minutes
Obj.2 (300)  In under 15 minutes, take North fort, NE fort, West fort
Obj.3 (500)  Lu Xun and Zhu Ran not killed

    This level is hard even on the winning side.  The fire attack starts
within the first minute or so of the fight.  After this Shu will start 
to retreat.  It is important to take out as many forts and generals you can 
near the fire attack.  You will need to trigger the event where Liu Bei
and Zhuge Liang appear inside stone maze.  Nearing 3-4 minutes they will
appear inside if you took out enough guys on the coast.  Head south and enter
it from the south side, its the easiest way in.  Once inside try to stick to 
you left then to the inner wall which would be your right.  Just remember your
trying to go inward if you get lost.  This might take a few tries to get 
within 5 minutes.  The forts can be taken after you get objective 1.



Battle of Hei Fei CASTLE
------------------------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes open any castle door
Obj.2 (300)  Break through center passage
Obj.3 (300)  Lu Xun and Gan Ning not killed

    You got plenty of time for this one so you can pretty much pick
any gate you want.  Same method as before, take out guards, wait for 
ladders, then get on top and take out any arbilist devices.  The center
passage is kinda tricky.  Climb the stairs nearby and wait for the platform
to stop moving.  When it does, rush with you horse to the gate and break into
it.  If you get thrown into the water by the moving platform, just try again.
I think it stops once your are next to the gate you need to break.  Watch
Gan Ning, he has the tendency to go off by himself.

of the largest naval battles in the history of China.  With a combined 
plan of the fire attack with allies Huang Gai and Zhuge Liang he 
destoyed Cao Cao's fleet that was 3x the size of Wu's fleet.  Zhou Yu had
also repelled an attack by Liu Biao and consulted with Sun Quan on many
important political matters.  He even convinced him to stand agaisnt 
Cao Cao, when the rest of the officials wanted to surrender.

look good and feel good.  Wu fans will love the change.

Hu Lao Gate
-----------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes take out center and NE archer bases
Obj.2 (300)  In under 15 minutes open one of the Hu Lao Gates
Obj.3 (1000)  Kill Lu BU

    First of all, take out the close officers then circle around to get the
closest archer base.  I would kill Zhang Liao as you work your way to the
second archer base.  Then after cleaning up head toward Hu Lao Gate.  As
soon as you see a ladder go up get up it and take out the 6 arbilists.  You
will prolly have to take out the gate guards.  Once Lu Bu comes out you can
go kill him for the 3rd objective.  But He is VERY tough in this level, so 
you might wanna have at least a level 20 guy.





Wu Settlement Battle
--------------------
Obj.1 (300)  Sun Quan and Zhou Tai not defeated
Obj.2 (300)  In under 10 minutes kill 500
Obj.3 (500)  In under 10 minutes, take north fort and south archer base

    A fairly easy battle, only one playable general you have to face.  
Remember to not take out all the bases to quick because you need those 
500 kills.  Sun Quan and Zhou Tai should be okay unless you just really 
suck or if you playing on expert..........and if thats the case ou prolly
wont be able to get any of the Objectives.  I would go for the center first
and then get the north fort.  Around this time you will get enemy troops
appear to the NE.  Its Yuan Shu, and its also a perfect time to rack up some
easy kills.  Should be around 350-400 when your done with him.  Liu Bei
and Zhang Fei also show up as back up for your guys, which makes this level
even easier.  Then just head down to the south archer base and mop up
some more kills and you should be set.  Now just to finish off Taishi Ci
and head to the end.



Xu Du Invasion
--------------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 5 minutes open front gate
Obj.2 (300)  In under 5 minutes take West fort and NW fort.
Obj.3 (500)  In under 10 minutes take all archer bases

    This will be one of the hardest level to get all objectives.  You MUST
be fast, MUST.  So get a fast horse and head straight to the gate.  At
least the music cool in this level.  You have 5 minutes to do 3 things.
Run to front gate and take out all the guards and if you spot a ladder 
within the first 45 seconds then get up it and take out those arbilists.
Either way, within a 1.5 minutes you need to be headin to the west side
fort.  Take it then head north and around the back of castle.  You will
find a path that leads directly to the other fort you need to take.  It 
will have a door you need to break through.  DO NOT try taking a path inside 
castle, it will take way too long.  By the time you get both bases, your 
army should be inside the gate.  Now just go get the rest of those archer 
bases!



Battle of Chi Bi
----------------
Obj.1 (300)  Huang Gai's fire attack succeeds
Obj.2 (300)  In under 10 minutes take center and west tower ships
Obj.3 (500)  No allies defeated

     Clear out close by officers, then head to help Zhuge Liang.  After he
Succeeds you should clear a way for Huang Gai.  Then head out for the bases.
This one might seem like a lot is goin on, but its pretty easy to keep 
everyone alive as long as the fire attack succeeds.  Also hitting the gongs
on the movable ships always helps ally troops move about easier.



Jing Zhou
---------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes kill Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei
Obj.2 (300)  In under 15 minutes, take all 3 castles
Obj.3 (500)  10 or more allies survive.

    This level is really easy.  You have got a ton of allies and tons
of time to do everything.  Just be careful when you go for Guan Yu and 
Zhang Fei.  They always have a backup general lurking around, as does Liu 
Bei.  If any ally is in trouble just go assist them, its pretty straightfoward


Yi Ling
-------
Obj.1 (300)  Enter the stone maze in under 5 minutes
Obj.2 (300)  In under 15 minutes, take North fort, NE fort, West fort
Obj.3 (500)  Lu Xun and Zhu Ran not killed

    This level is hard even on the winning side.  The fire attack starts
within the first minute or so of the fight.  After this Shu will start 
to retreat.  It is important to take out as many forts and generals you can 
near the fire attack.  You will need to trigger the event where Liu Bei
and Zhuge Liang appear inside stone maze.  Nearing 3-4 minutes they will
appear inside if you took out enough guys on the coast.  Head south and enter
it from the south side, its the easiest way in.  Once inside try to stick to 
you left then to the inner wall which would be your right.  Just remember your
trying to go inward if you get lost.  This might take a few tries to get 
within 5 minutes.  The forts can be taken after you get objective 1.

~Lu Xun~

   5a: HISTORY
   ***********

   Orginally was married to Sun Ce's daughter and given a provincial
rank.  He became a skilled leader and a great general.  He pacified the
eastern tribes of Yue and later became well known for his help with the
defeat of Liu Bei.  Lu Xun schemed the plot of pretending to be in awe
of Guan Yu's power, thus letting Guan Yu drop his guard and move away 
more troops toward his campaign in the north.  Lu Xun and Lu Meng 
seized the oppurtunity to take control of Jing from Guan Yu while he 
was gone.  Letter were sent in Guan Yu's name to tell his troops they 
could return home, thus leaving him with less troops.  By the time He 
figured out what was going on, he was forced to retreat.  He was caught
with his son Guan Ping and executed.  Liu Bei sent a huge force to 
retaliate in revenge, agaisnt Zhuge Liang's advice.  Lu Xun set up 
a camp across from Liu Bei at Yi Ling.  He would not let anyone attack Liu 
Bei and they just sat.  After months of doing nothing and Liu Bei's 
army mocked them, they pretended to attack the front.  Liu bei's army thought
this it chance but was caught unguarded when it was a trick so Lu Xun could
attack the other 3 sides.  They set fire to Liu Bei's camp and many were
lost that day in the retreat.  A huge blow to shu.

then him showing off his belly.  Kind of weird how they made all Wu

Obj.3 (500)  All bases inside castle must survive

     Well Wu and Wei and working together on this one.  You have alot
more officers then the enemy, but they drop like flies so make sure you
dont waste time getting things done.  I would start by rushing down and
trying to defend your left gate.  After clearing out most officers, Xu Huang
should be getting wasted.  Go save him and then take out the enemy forts.
If you have a chance to kill Guan Ping DO IT!  It will stop the water attack
and save a ton of morale.  If not you are gonna have to watch your allied 
bases from being taken over.  You can also get 2 officers to defect if you
approach them before the flood.  Sometimes it wastes too much time though 
and doing this you will lose Xu Huang or a chance to get Guan Ping.  Either 
way they are across the bridge of both your gates.  THey just sit there.

   Wei will be comin at you hard on this level.  They also got their
traitor in the middle of you center base.  I would go clear that center 
base out first as to not lose it.  Remember to watch that life and if you 
get anywhere close to 50%, I would go back to a base and refill.  Go
from base to base, taking out officers that are close.  Also keep an eye
on that Qiao girl, she gets a little brave sometimes.


Battle of Hei Fei CASTLE
------------------------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes open any castle door
Obj.2 (300)  Break through center passage
Obj.3 (300)  Lu Xun and Gan Ning not killed

    You got plenty of time for this one so you can pretty much pick
any gate you want.  Same method as before, take out guards, wait for 
ladders, then get on top and take out any arbilist devices.  The center
passage is kinda tricky.  Climb the stairs nearby and wait for the platform
to stop moving.  When it does, rush with you horse to the gate and break into
it.  If you get thrown into the water by the moving platform, just try again.
I think it stops once your are next to the gate you need to break.  Watch
Gan Ning, he has the tendency to go off by himself.

~Gan Ning~

   5a: HISTORY
   ***********
   
   Started as a pirate looting and robbing villages.  He wore bells to warn
people that his group was coming.  In his 20's he started to read and
educate himself.  He left his life of crime to enter the service of Liu
Biao.  Liu Biao rejected his service because of his background.  He tried
with Huang Zu and was given a lowly position.  Gan Ning saved Huang Zu's
life from an attack by Sun Quan.  Huang Zu still did not respect him, so 
Gan Ning left.  Ling Tong's father had also been killed by Gan Ning in that 
battle.  After being recommended by Zhou Yu and Lu Meng, Gan Ning joined Wu.
Sun Quan had to place Gan Ning in a far province becuase Ling TOng had 
attempted to kill him on several occasions.  He led many succesful attacks
north agaisnt Cao Cao.  He was even put in defense of YiYang and even the
great Guan Yu was said to not dare engage him.  During the battle of He Fei
Ling Tong took 3000 men to attack Zhang Liao but failed.  Gan Ning, as to 
show up Ling Tong said he only need 100 horsemen to attack Cao Cao's base
camp, and even if 1 were lost he would count it as failure.  Gan Ning's plan
worked.  It later led to Ling tong fighting in a battle agaisnt Yue Jin.
Seeing that Yue Jin was losing Cao Xiu was ordered to shoot an arrow.  It 
knocked Ling Tong on the ground and as Yue Jin was about to finish him, 
Gan Ning shot an arrow and hit Yue Jin in the face; saving Ling Tong.  After
this Ling TOng and Gan Ning became best friends.

    I would head to the center and take control of the middle bases first.
Then proceed to the east and take down that draw bridge.  If Gan Ning's
reinforcements appear first, they will do it and you will lose the 
objective.  If your Gan Ning dotn worry as much.  Whe you see Zhang Liao
appear get to him quick and kill him quick.  As long as you are leveled

Proceed to the other fort and take out Cao Ren and Xu Chu if they are on the

Objective 2:(300 exp.)  Defeat in order personally, Guan Yu then Zhang Fei, 
                       THEN go take Liu Bei's Base.

                       either)
Objective 3:(500 exp.)  Kill 10 enemy generals in under 15 minutes.

       The hardest part of this level is getting all the objectives.  You 
have to run to the south gate first.  Kill the 2 generals on the way.  Then 
clear out all the south gate guards.  While waiting for a ladder, I usually 
go to the west gate and kill that general.  After the ladder is up (should 
be about 2-3 minutes in) then get up the ladder and destroy the arbalests.  
(the giant arrow launchers) Follow the top of castle around to the other 
gate and destroy arbalests (call your horse if you can).  Jump inside the 
castle and clear out any close generals so that Zhang and Diao can get 
through easy.  When Guan Yu starts to move north you should go after him, 
leave the gates, they should be bursting through any time now.  After 
killing Guan, Go finish Zhang, who is now south and prolly blocking Diao, 
and clear any others that might be in her way.  Dont forget to take the 
main base before killing Liu Bei and you should have all 3 objectives!





He Fei
------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 15 minutes kill Sun Ce and Sun Quan
Obj.2 (400)  6 or more allies survive
Obj.3 (500)  In under 20 minutes suppress East and West castles

     This map is pretty easy.  With Lu Bu on your side it makes it even 
easier.  Go clear a path for your allies and then go for the castles.  You
can also lower the east drawbridge, this will help allies move easier.


Jing Zhou

Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes take Jing Castle and Chang Sha
Obj.2 (400)  In under 10 minutes kil 10 officers
Obj.3 (500)  For 10 minutes, maintain 60% of life

     This will be prolly the second hardest objective to get.  The 
maintaining life thing sucks.  Just remember to take every base and get the
health when you take it over.  If someone casts fire while you are in a 
base GET OUT QUICK!  The base will catch fire and you will lose life
drastically.  You do have to be quick as well, becuase all the 
objectives have to be done in 10 minutes.  I would start with the bases and
the nearby officers.  That should give you close to all complete.  And 
remember you have to play the level for ten minutes to get obj.3
Dont just run to the end.



Han Zhong
---------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 15 minutes take out east archer base and SW fort
Obj.2 (400)  In 20 minutes, kill 10 officers
Obj.3 (500)  In 20 minutes, take all bases

     Dont get lost in the multiple levels of the map.  You have plenty
of time for all 3 so take your time and watch for ambushes.



Fan Castle
----------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 10 minutes, open Fan Castle gates
Obj.2 (300)  take all bases
Obj.3 (500)  Maintain life at 30%

     You got 10 minutes to get both gates open.  Too bad this is on the
same map as Xi Pia with a remix.  SO you should know the drill.  Get up
those ladders as soon as they are put up.  Take out the arbilists on top
and let the builders gt up those rams.  Once your army is inside just 
take all those bases.  Remember to watch you life and if you need go back
to a base that spawns life outside castle.


Xu Du Castle
------------
Obj.1 (300)  In under 15 minutes kill Xu Chu, Cao Pi, Zhen Ji, Cao Ren
Obj.2 (300)  Main base not broken into
Obj.3 (500)  Maintain 50% of life

     The hardest level in this story.  Not only will the guys be tougher
because its her last level, but she has to keep 50% of her life.  There
is also the task of taking out all the generals personally if you 
want Zhen Ji.  When you go for Zhen Ji, watch for Cao Pi as well,
they are always together and seem to use fire alot.  If you see fire near
a base...run and try to get them to come to you.  Keeping that life up
is the hardest part.  Watch for fire ambush in the center of map as well.

   5a: HISTORY

     Lu Bu is a character that lived in the years before 200 AD in 
ancient China.  A feared warrior who mastered horses, archery, and swords; 
he had no match on the battlefield, the perfect warrior.  He served two 
different lords that had adopted him, but he betrayed both and killed them.  
The second of his lords was Dong Zhou, who he had killed for his love Diao 
Chan.  After seizing the throne, Dong Zhou's previous govenors ran Lu Bu 
out of the imperial court and he went into exile.  Yuan Shao then took him 
under his command only to dismiss him after issues of mistrust.  Again he 
ran being chased by assassins of Yuan.  He was finally captured in Xia Pi 
after capturing the castle from Liu Bei.  Cao Cao then brought his army to 
alliance with Liu Bei's to surround Xia Pi and capture the treacherous 
Lu Bu.  Lu Bu then pledged his allegiance to Cao Cao, but was hanged 
after Cao Cao realized how he would suffer a similar fate like that of 
Dong Zhuo and Yuan Shao.

   5d:  STORY MODE and OBJECTIVES
   ******************************

LU BU

Levels:
Xia Pi
Guan Du
Shi Ting
Chi Bi
Mt. Ding Jun
Hu Lao Gate

Objectives:  The more of these you complete, the more experience you earn 
and the more skills points you acquire at the end of level.  So these should 
be top priority when trying to max out a character.  
(O yeah, and always have a fast horse!)


XIA PI
------
Objective 1:(300 exp.)  Zhang Liao and Diao Chan enter the inner castle in 
                        under 10 minutes
Objective 2:(300 exp.)  Defeat in order personally, Guan Yu then Zhang Fei, 
                       THEN go take Liu Bei's Base.  
                       (base must be taken after, dont let allies take it 
                       either)
Objective 3:(500 exp.)  Kill 10 enemy generals in under 15 minutes.

       The hardest part of this level is getting all the objectives.  You 
have to run to the south gate first.  Kill the 2 generals on the way.  Then 
clear out all the south gate guards.  While waiting for a ladder, I usually 
go to the west gate and kill that general.  After the ladder is up (should 
be about 2-3 minutes in) then get up the ladder and destroy the arbalests.  
(the giant arrow launchers) Follow the top of castle around to the other 
gate and destroy arbalests (call your horse if you can).  Jump inside the 
castle and clear out any close generals so that Zhang and Diao can get 
through easy.  When Guan Yu starts to move north you should go after him, 
leave the gates, they should be bursting through any time now.  After 
killing Guan, Go finish Zhang, who is now south and prolly blocking Diao, 
and clear any others that might be in her way.  Dont forget to take the 
main base before killing Liu Bei and you should have all 3 objectives!



GUAN DU
-------
Objective 1:(300 exp.)  In under 15 minutes, take 2 middle forts.
Objective 2:(300 exp.)  Take Yuan's and Cao Cao Main bases.
Objective 3(300 exp)    get 1000 kills

         This one pretty straight forward.  You can go any way you want.  
Very cool fight with a 3 way battle so I would work on one army then take 
the other.  Don’t forget to take all the forts, and to get 1000 kills, just 
feed off an enemy fort before taking it.  Still very easy if you
just plow through it.


SHI TING
--------
Objective 1:(300 exp)  Kill Taishi Ci
Objective 2:(300 exp)  In under 15 minutes, take Xiao Castle, and 
                       Shi Ting North and South base
Objective 3:(500 exp)  Beat level with at least 4 allied generals alive

         Another straight forward level, watch out for taishi ci, he can be 
pretty buffed, if you playing on a harder difficulty.  Your allies 
follow you most the time so just watch if they are getting hit.


CHI BI
------
Objective 1:(300 exp)  In under 10 minutes defeat Cao Cao and Sun Quan
Objective 2:(300 exp.)  Kill Zhuge Liang
Objective 3(300 exp.)  No allies defeated

           This one can be tricky.  REMEMBER, if you want to unlock 
Sun Quan, you have to complete the first objective.  First try to go take 
on Zhuge Liang, who is at altar in middle of level.  Then I Would take out 
as many playable generals as possible, Zhou Yu, Huang Gai, Dian Wei, Pang 
Tong.  Because after you kill their leader, they go in rage mode.  But also 
don’t forget you have to kill the two leaders in under 10, so don’t waste 
too much time.  I would leave at least 4 minutes to kill both and have 
time to get across map to kill the other one.  *You can also go for Huang
Gai, who is waiting to north east in a ship.  You can wrap around and
jump on the ship preventing the fire attack.  The only level this can 
actually be prevented.


MT. DING JUN
------------
Objective 1:(300 exp.)  In under 15 minutes take both mountain bases
Objective 2:(300 exp.)  Lu Bu's main base must not be broken into 
Objective 3:(500 exp.)  beat level in under 20 minutes.

            Careful of reinforcements, and some of the generic enemy 
generals are REALLY tough.  Other then that, just watch to make sure no 
enemies get close to your main base.  If they do run back quick to take 
them out.


HU LAO GATE
-----------
Objective 1:(300 xp) In ANY order, take out Liu bei, Sun Quan, Yuan Shao, 
                     Zhang Jiao, Dong Zhuo in under 15 minutes
Objective 2:(300xp)  Hu Lao's Gates NOT broken into
Objective 3:(500xp)  No allies killed

             Wow, a very hard, but also very fun level!  You get to take 
on every one!  The first objective is easy.  Just work your way through 
the level and take them out one by one.  When you get halfway through, 
watch for reinforcements from the north, they will try to break your gates 
open.  Keeping all your allies alive is VERY hard.  They seem to follow you, 
but in the end of level all the enemy playable generals come back to 
life and take you on all at once!  And if that is not enough, they are all 
in rage mode!  I lost Diao Chan a couple times, so if allies are getting 
hurt fall back and regroup at a base.  Get some health and so on.

END>>>>>>>>>>>congrats you get Dong Zhuo, the ugly!
