Slaying of the Hydra - HYDRA _________________________________ Keelback: After Watching the Intro Scene and control preparations get ready to start battling. We must make our way through hoards of enemies and take out KEELBACK frist. This will open up a pathway, take it and head north. Run up the cliffside then jump down a bit. The area near the Hydra is covered in Lava, we will have to make our way to a ballista to the North. Bushmaster: On our way towards the ballista, we will get an on screen information. This tells us to take out Bushmaster to open the 2nd guardpost or pathway. If you want to use the Horse do so now, and clear a path of enemies to get to bushmaster. Take him down with your spear on the horse or on melee foot. The 2nd guardpost is now open. North Ballista: While you are making your way through the 2nd guardpost path way, you should encounter, Gyuki. Gyuki is pretty big, he will obviously be with hoards of enemies. Take him down for some more XP, or run past him to the Basllista to the north. Get on the Ballista, and begin firing at the HYDRA. You will do very very little damage. Keep firing until the Hydra destroys the ballista. Head north east to another guardpost enemy, named Urutha. Take down Urutha and the enemies around him for more experience points. The 3rd guardpost will be open. You can now advance to the eastern ballista. A little ways east you will run into Hognoste, take him down as well. Keep continue along this path to boomslang and towards the ballista. Take out boom slang. Eastern Ballista : Jump onto this ballista and rinse and repeat tactic from ballista # 1. It will be destroyed. After this, Kiyomori Taira will begin talking. He has arrived on the scene. After a little while and a ton of enemy kills later, The battle plans will change. We now must Retreat to the North-weatern Mountain path. The Retreat : Make your way through hordes of enemies. Use your triple attack if you are really in a rough situation. During this time we are still heading in the direction of the mountain path. Look at your map radial often so you do not get lost. Once you come near an enemy Diamondback take him down. A few more seconds of running north west we will be at the mountain path and the cut scene will unfold. Kaguya Will Join the Party ! COMPLETE SLAYING OF THE HYRDRA-------------- _____________________________________________ 2. The Battle of Yiling - Yiling ____________________________________________ : Yiling Begin, Keelback Start off by heading north west through the enemies on the map. Eventually we run into Keelback again. Take him down with Normal attacks. Kiyomori Taira Will order his " puppet" to come crush the resistence. The eastern Garrison sotuh gates will close at this point. : Kunochi : Head north west a bit more to run into Kunochi. Pang De will appear at this point to assist the party. The party will gain more morale. Since Kunochi is being controlled, once she is down she will be considered captured. Kiyomori's spell has faded. Continue to head north west, Then run into a cut scene. : Masakage Yamagata : This should go down really really quick, with basic attacks. He has low hp and low defenses. Just use regular attacks with X button or quick attack button. He should be down before he tells you to fight him. After Masakage, is taken care of report to the message. : To the Stone Sentinal Maze : We must head towards the stone sentinal maze. The reason for this is to rescue Huang Zhnng. Along the way a Big mastadon like Creature Morion will appear he is huge, take him out with focused attacks then work on the surronding enemies. At this point you should be in a small town. If viewing the map which you should be doing, we are way south and heading North west. Make your way across the small water way. Watch off for some enemies on horse back. : Nobutoyo Takeda : This guy will have enemies on horse back near him. Wise to probably use our triple tech attack here. Also use some special attacks to clear out some of the enemies on horse back around Nobutoyo Takeda, before hand. : Coltan, Yellow Belly , MUmushi : Three unique enemies at once, although it is pretty easy as they all have low hp and our attacks and party plus the help of pang de. : At this point You should be almost exactly in the center of the map from heading north west then north. : Huang Zhong is Gone : We reach Huang Zhong and he will speak his final words. The demon army has slain him ! Continue north from that point. Kiyomori Taira will open up the Stone Sentinal maze gate. ! --Defeat Kiyomori Taira-- ! - Takeda - Cotton Mouth - Nobufusa Baba - Nobukimi Anayama - Yukimura Sanada - Morinobu Nishina - Kiyomori Taira The Stone temple maze is full of enemies and the latter unique enemies. First head west until you can't go no more. Then head east. Finally head north and then immediately west again. You should be in a large open area now. A door is to the west. Kiyomori Taira will speak again, the Stone Sentinel Maze west gates will now be open. There will be a ton of enemies on the path to Kiyomori especially in this area right before you do battle with him. You want to take them out before doing battle with Kiyomori Taira, or you will be annoyed or may die. : Kiyomori Taira : Hope that you saved all your MP for this point. Kiyomori Taira will be with tons of enemies. Aside he is also very dangerous himself. He has a ton of HP. Best thing to do here is the following. - We have Pang De at our side with his unit, making things easier. So try and get his unit into HIGH MORALE. - Use your special attacks and especially have to make sure that the radius damage hits all enemies especially Kiyomori as well as the surronding enemies at the same time. - If your having to much trouble on this mission level up at level 1 the hydra level. get enough gems for better gear and give it another shot. You can also try playing on an easier mode. - After this battle you have Received VICTORY ! A long cut scene will begin get ready for level 3. - Ma Dai will Join the party ! - Pang De will join the party ! - Kunochi will join the party ! ______________________________________ 3. Battle of Dongkou - Dongkou _______________________________________ : Jia Xu Army : Deng Ai, is an ally, he is planning on using a rock slide to counter the enemies attack on the resistence. We must keep Deng Ai Alive. There will be 4 glowing markers on this map. We must get to them all. First head to the one to the Far east. Once you get there climb up the ladder. We have successfully protected Deng Ai. We also caused a rock slide to hurt our enemies during this level. At this point the Jia xu army is open to attack. Hit them with your best. Although I would try to reserve triple tects and magic for the end. Just pay attention and keep on your toes. Make your way west to the next marker. You will run into Xu Sheng take him down. We must take down Pan Zhang's entire unit. use some specials if you must. This part is located at the center of the map almost exactly. Huang Guai Is at the Norther Marker, go there to do battle. The marker is at the full north west part of the map. The fireball attack will begin here so be extra careful. After a quick easy battle, Take a horse for a longer trek to the south west marker on the map. South West Marker will reveal the Demon army. Take them down Horse back should help out. With the Horse head towards the YELLOW markers on the map which is the demon army symbols. They will be lead by none other then the Harvest man. Take him down first then use a triple tech on the rest of the demon army. A little bit ways east of the map, you will encounter 3 huge minotaur creatures with the demon army. Annhilate them. Then the marker will tell you to head towards Jia Xu. Head all the way to the south central part of the map and confront Jia Xu. Take down Jia Xu. He will flee. Return all the way North west. To the very north west corner of the map. Take out some big minotaurs. Sima Zhao's ice slide works great here. As does his Lightning charge on horse back. Ma Chao's special is nice as well vs all of these big hulking creatures. Get on horse back and wrap around a brown line on the map heading east. Confront lance head and more of the undead army. Your triple tech meter should be close to full again by now. Copper head will also be with "lancehead". Take them both down with regular attacks building up your triple tech meter. Finally use your triple tech on everyone left off. You should gain a ton of gems and this is the last of the undead army and victory for the level ! - Xu huang Joins The Party - Jia Xu Joins the party - Huang gai - joins the party - Deng Ai- joins the party - Kanbei Kuroda- Joins the party - Ginchiyo Tachibana - Joins the party ! *** LEVEL COMPLETE**** _______________________________________ 4. Battle of Ueda Castle - Ueda _______________________________________ You will start off at the south east portion of the map. Work your way north east toward the center of the map. In this level there will be 2 enemy armies to deal with. The Undead army led by Yuan Shao and Dung Zhug's Army. Dung's army is trying to talk Ueda castle as well as is the undead army. This makes things apparently easier for our party members at least story wise. Wang Yuanji will distract Dung Zhug's army forces away so Our main party can deal with Yuan Shao and his undead minions. I suggest Using Sima Zhan here, as he is very powerful . Head all the way to the North west part of the map. You will end up running into Yuan shao's units. Of course Yuan Shao will be there as well. With your upgraded weapons and your Wolf Blade focus your attack on Yuan Shao, while using special attacks on the army and yuan shao to do extra radius damage. - Hammer Jaw - Wish bone - Fang Ji - Yuan Shao - These guys are all big unique ones, save your triple tech unless necessary. THe reason is that Dong Zhuo's army has continued to advance close to Ueda Caslte, they are gaining morale as we deal with Yuan Shao. Head North and confront Dong Zhuo's army and start to take them out. Ma chao and his super long spear works great here. Hopefully you have upgraded your weapons, and if not do so at this point. Ma chao can take out the whole army using little mana, and just easy X strikes. If you are having trouble though, save that triple tech for now. Dong Zhuo's army is rather big for this early point in the game. - After he is gone as well as Yuan Shao, Enjoy the victory ! *** VICTORY ***! - Taishi She Will Join the Cause - Zhang Liao will join the cause - Wang Yuanji Will join the cause - Zhuge Dan will join the cause - Sakon Shima will also join the cause ! WOW ! _________________________________________ 5.Battle of Shouchun - Shouchun ________________________________________ Now Things Get a Little bit tougher. So let me explain my party set up here. Zhang Liao : Use Devil's Bane which will increase your attack +10 points. Also It has + 1 reach for compatiblity with Zhang Liao. Taishi Ci Power based character Deng Ai he is also power based and should have a much higher level at this point. He has a base high hp and high defense. Equip ALL of these characters with a phoenix wing and a lions fang. Make your way to the western part of the map. Persoannly I used Zhang Liao here, dual wielding devil's bane axes. There is only one army here but they are large with numbers and powerful. First goal is to make our way to Shouchun castle. During this time Makasnori Fukushima, must be protected and kept alive. From this point head south to the marker. Taigon Wang Will open up the first gate with his sorcery. Take out the remaining officers especially the ever returning diamodback. We have been set in a trap and the castle is now on fire. Fight your way through the hordes of enemies. Defeat diamondback and he will Flee leaving both of the gates now open ! Make your way west almost to the end of the map. Then Get ready for some more officers. I use Zhang Liao here and really rip it up with my devil's bane axes. Doing some bolt damage, as well as heavy and light attacks to jump into a nice special. This should take them down and you will have fun doing so. Head North From here over a bridge. WE need to take out the next group of officers. Still Using Zhang Liao with the devils bane. Take out the enemies then destroy Hooknoose. Shoutu Doji Will be here as well. with so little enemies left he is a total cake walk. After defeating him or gaining victory Shoutu Doji will flee and the battle will be won. - Masauri Fukushima Joins - Taigong Wang Joins - Yoshitsube Minamoto Joins ! _________________________________ 6. Battle of Nagashino - Nagashino ______________________________________ Party should consist of 2 power characters and another character of your choice. Immediatley take out the officer stripleg. I am still going to recommend using the devils bane axes with Zhang Liao. For the map it is pretty big and has 2 major sections. There are 2 bridges that connect to the southern and northern parts of the map. I recoomend heading north first. North east to be exact all the way on the right side of the map. Start taking out enemies along that path it should save us time for later staying in route. This will open up the Eastern Garrison gates after taking down a few officers. Defeat Sun Wunkung: He is turning allies into demons. We are going to have to take him down. Start heading west on the field map. This is where Sun Wukung and his units are located. Once you reach a fort area to the center of the map, Sun Wukung will be waiting. Taking down Sun Wukung will make him flee, this will increase party morale, as well as stop the turning of allied forces for now. From the Center of the map keep heading west until you reach a bunch of enemies on Horse back. Take them out with some Zhang Liao jump and swipe attacks. The Date army is reported here and Hidemune Date is the leading officer. Still suggest using Zhang Liao or another technique based character. Yake out Hidemune Date ! Next will Come Masamune Date. The gates will open for advancement at this point. MASAMUNE DATE: This guy is trouble, He can use a special attack that fires projectiles all over the screen. Save your triple techs for him alone. If their are more surronding enemies do not worry about them as much as Masamune Date. Remember to use that triple tech and your best attacks followed up afterwards. ***VICTORY*** Ranmaru Mori Will JOIN Zhou Tai WILL JOIN Hoeyoshi Totimi will join Yukmura Sora will join Guo Huai will Join ! ___________________________________________ 7. Battle of Odawara Castle - Odawara _________________________________________ Start off with preparations, I like to have 2 power based characters and one speed based character. The Goal is to assist in the defense of Odawara Castle. Starting off in the very south western portion of a complicated map. Take out the first few officers to open the gates directly to the north. Finish off nearby enemy forces then continue onwards to the north through the gate. In this level those big bad minotaur type demons are back, they could be trouble. We also will be dealing with more undead army. Once we head all the way to the eastern part of the map we will do some battle with Odokomei. He is an undead officer, Once he is gone head through the gate and enjoy a nice little cut scene. After the cut scene, keep advancing north. Make your way through the outer city. Keep heading north to where the glowing yellow map radial is on the field map. The demon army is advancing strongly at this point most likely but do not fret ! At this section of the map we take out Da Ji, The Castle main gate will open. At this point keep following all the red dots on screen, taking out the enemy units one by one. I suggest using a speed based character for this and triple techs if your in some serious trouble. Choosing a speed based character is wise, for several reasons. One the map is big and there are a ton of enemies as usual. Except in this level there is more running around then normal. The officers in this level are a bit differnt then most, they are very powered based heavy hitters, one even uses a hammer weapon. A speed based character with a good amount of HP should do very nicely here. Kiyomori Taira: Finally we will make it to Kiyomori Taira. He has the same weapons as last time, those huge crazy bead like whips. Switch over to a power character and focus attacks on Kiyomori alone, he should go down pretty easy to a level 25+ Power character on Normal. ** VICTORY ** Xiaoqiao Will Join the party ! Sun ShangXiang Will join the party ! Ding Feng Will Join the party ! Yoshihiro Shamazu Will Join the Party ! Kai will join the party ! the Camp will expand at this point, opening up the Tea house ! ________________________________________ 1. Battle Of Hasedo - Hasedo _____________________________________ Start off on the very south western part of the map. Begin with 2 power characters and one speed character. The map has a large amount of twist and turns yet not much area to cover as compared to some of the bigger battle fields. Continue North west taking out the enemy Forces captains, officers along the way You will run into yet again, Urutu. Take urutu down to open up the north western gates. On your way north west take out leafitter another commanding officer. Start making your way west at this point attacking the demon army main camp, with your allies units, party and our own units. Shandtigi Doji will appear at the north central part of the map. The enemy will gain morale at this point. There will also be a large number of Minotaurs about 3. They are considered leaders or officers, so take them out. Kiyoohisa Kimura, must be taken down to open up the guard post gate. The next guard post gate will be closed as well. We must now take down Officer Coachwu. Liu Shaun will appear north east of the map after taking him down more gates will open. Head south from here to the beach area, with some buildings around it. There will be a cut scene with some sort of ballons and carinal appearence going on watch it then progress to the next gameplay part. Take horse back all the way south to the water. More of the demon army is located here, and another Minotaur officer named Nosean. This will open up more guardpost gates. Back on horse back head south west. Where diamond back will be. Beat the heck out of him. He has a large amount of HP, so if your having trouble use some powers and special attacks. Shuten Doji will flee again, after diamondback is down. This will make him weaker. Take horse back to the south central part of the map. South central will be Shuten Doji himself. Use your best attacks here, and triple tech if you really need to. Ma chao is great here due to his power and long range with his spear type weapons. Once you take down Shuten Doji Victory is Won ! ____________________________________ 2. Battle For Anegawa - Anegawa ____________________________________ Get your weapons upgraded before this battle. Go to weapons dealer, increase bonds with other playable characters as well. Setup with a Speed, Wonder, and Power house character for this battle. Fuse weapons, to add the most elements/ attributes possible for you at this point. Draw from all the lottery tickets you have collected at this point. Then once again judge stats and pick favorite looking weapons to the best of your knowledge. Weapons in warriors orochi 3, is very similar to warriors orochi number 1. Check the awesome weapons FAQ, on gamefaqs.com for more weapons information. We will be dueling in combat, at night time through water, starting with a full resistence army on the south level of the map. This one is an all out WAR, the enemy is on one side, and the resistence another. So just head north and get ready for one of the most battle prone levels in the game vs none other then Kiyotori Taira. Kiyotori Taira will be using his sorcery and tricks as usual. Turning allies against the forces of the resistence. Sun Wukong is a major influence in this battle He will appear and disappear several times, even after being defeated. Tips for taking out Sun wukong and his units. I like to use a wonder character her with high Mosou. Ayane is a nice character to play as. Her special will stun enemies where they stand while repeating hits with blue projectiles do ice damage and just rip them apart real nice. Her Mosou or "MP" will charge back rather quickly as well as her having a large amount of it,even at low levels. I do suggest speding your growth points on her pre the battle, as she will prove to be very very useful. You can probably get by with Ayane at around level 20 the whole entire battle, without having to switch to much. Once again equip best possible gear/favorite gear for looks damage output, performance and of course fun factor. RYU HAYABUSA ! Ryu Hayabusa from the Ninja Gaiden series will appear in this level as well. Hopefully he will join our cause once we achieve victory ! Doing battle with Kiyomori Taira Will probably make you want to switch characters finally. Switch to a power character once again for the "boss". Sima Zhan is nice with a persoanl favorite or good upgraded/fused weapon. Once you take him Down he will retreat yet again. Note that he will also have other officers with him in this battle. - Cai Wenji Joins - Ryu Hayabusa Joins - Zuo Ci joins - Beneki Joins - Kanetsugu Naoe Joins ! - Toshile Maeda Joins ! **** VICTORY *** ____________________________ 3. Battle Of Kyushu - Kyushu ___________________________ Sima Zhao, Ryu Hayabusa you know you want too ! and Ayane for the wonder of it all. We will be doing battle against the Mdri army in this level. Ryu Hayabusa will probably be a low level at this point, so you may want to consider using a higher level character. Although he is very powerful. Back him up with a higher level character from earlier stages, Like Sima Zhao just in case. Then have Ayane for the wonder skills, as a nice backup. Make your way North central to the Stone Labyrinth. You can activate it by killing the leading officers in the north central area. The Stone labyrinth will move at points in this level, so you may have to wait a little bit until you have an opening. Once you do destroy everything in your path. Once you make your way through to the north western part of the map, through some of the stone labyrinth a cut scene will begin. MORE enemy forces have arrived at the southern part of the map. Take the southern bridge over to the south area where the enemy forces are located. Defeat some officers to open up the gates. The enemy will begin moving toward the south eastern temple. Head there, and watch out for the flaming pillars of fire ! Take out Montonari Mori, and he will retreat giving the resistence army more morale. Take out the remaining officers and head through the south eastern gates which are now open. Achiles will appear at this point and must be defeated. Take him down with Sima Zhao in the lead or another power based high level character. Use a triple tech on Achiles and everything else you have he is rather tough. The South eastern temple will now be accessible. All the way at the bottom of the map south, will be Da ji, some minotaur officers and of course all there units. Use Sima Zhao once again or power character to take her down. Da Ji will retreat and VICTORY will be won. - Nemea Will Join - Bao Sanniang will join - Goemon ishikawa will join ! ________________________________________ 4. Battle Of Dingjun - Dingjun _______________________________________ Big map, with lots of enemies. The Resistence vs Kiyomori's demon army. We won't have many units to start with, so get ready for a bit of a challange at the begin, even on normal difficulty. We start off at the North eastern part of the map at the very top. I suggest leveling up Ryu hayabusa if your using him, he should be around level 20 now using all your growth points on him. Mao Chao is nice here with his speed and long range spear attacks. Ayane once again for speed attacks and her ice projectiles. And Hayabusa for back up power. You will and should be switching to all 3 of your party memebers through this battle. Once you defeat a few officers while heading west you will reach a cutscene. Joan of arc will receive our aid as reinforcements. Stay to the western part of the map, and circle up the hill taking out all enemies and officers in our way. Switch to a character with high speed at this point to increase the amount of time it takes to complete the level. Head to the garrison gates in the north west. Wait for one of our allies to die. Sun Wukung will begin boasting and open up the gates. Once the enemies are destroyed inside the garrison gates, pick up the items by breaking some barrels. Make your way back up side and do a rock slide down the mountain side. A bit South from here, Kutori Fuma will appear the enemy army will gain morale. Head south over the bridge to the next set of enemies. You should run into another officer named orb weaver. Head east into the next stronghold. Take out all enemies and officers inside. You may want to look at your zoomed in map here, just to find the entrance to the stronghold. Golden rod, will be to the south of here, take him down and continue along the south eastern path to take out the rest of the demon army. You will run into Sun Wukong. Take him out with a heavy hitter like Hayabusa and some heavy attacks. Joan of arc and the french army, will bring reinforcements at this point. Sun Wukong's defeat will open up the south eastern gates. Defeat Cao Tai then work your way to the east. Inside another strong hold on the map there will be a circle of enemies. We have to work our way up that spiral hill, defeating all enemies and officers in or path. This is the last strectch of the level. It is also the most difficult. Switch party members often to confuse the enemy, and combo attack patterns. Ma chao and Ayane work nice with thier speed her. As well as ice projectiles for massive groups of weaker enemies. Circling further around the hill, Run into Cao Ren. Take him out with a speed based character such as Ayane. Also Take out Zhang da, switch over to power character for that one, as there should be less groups or swarms of enemies at this point. Hognose another officer will be basically all that is left, take him out with the power of Ryu hayabusa. At the Top of the Hill will once again, be Kiyomori Taira. We will have Joan of Arc with us and her units, + there will be a small amount of Demon army units left, so this time he is simple. One ice projectile from Ayane or even 2 will take out Kiyomori Taira and his units at least on normal mode. *** VICTORY *** Guan yo will join ! Cao Ren will join ! Sun Quan will join ! Xiahou ba will join ! Joan of Arc will join ! ______________________________________ 5. Battle of Nanzhong - Nanzhong _____________________________________ Immediatley you will be encounterd by an officer named Tangleweb and his units. Da Ji her units will also be here, and she is with Achiles who is protecting the temple. We must make our way to the temple to take out and duel with Achiles. starting off in the south west portion of the map, begin working your way east through the enemy units. At the same time, Da ji will be planning an escape route. Take out some officers then begin to head north. You will run into the large minotaur demon officers. Keep Heading North east to the very center of the field. Achiles will be waiting for you alone. It will be a one on one duel. Use a high level power based character. Sima Zhao is nice because he should be well leveled and powerful at this point in the game. Since Sima Zhao is an original or starting point character. use Sima Zhao to take down Achiles. This will open up the Temple gates and a pathway to the North. Contine North then eventually north east. Taking out officers along the way. Once you are to the far east section of the map, there will be a bridge and Hikimo. Hikimo is a wonder based character with very strong projectile attacks. Once again use a high level character. I like to use Ma chao here, due to his speed and long range spear attacks. She is powerful though, so you may also want to use a triple tech. Once you get over the bridge you will confront Da ji yet again. Clear out her units and make it a one on one at this point. Da Ji will Flee again after being defeated in the battle. This will Result in a cut scene and of course VICTORY. Wei Yan will Join ! Men Huo will Join ! Zhurong will Join ! _______________________________________ 6. Battle of Xuchang - Xuchang _______________________________________ This is a basically a rescue mission and to add more, we have to Capture Shuten Doji. We will start in the Mid west part of the map and have to begin by working our way south to the first marker. One of our allies Jiang wei will be slain, as we head from north to south to the garrison doors. They will open shortly after the slaying of Jiang Wei. Keep heading north to more garrison gates. Go towards it and it will open to rescue Nene. Take horseback to head south east, towards the center field. A little west of there, will be another opening and Zhang He. He is not a hostage. So contnue north to the next Square area on the map. The next hostage Xiang ce is inside. Rescue her for one more saved hostage. Head all the way to the most north western part of the map. Open the garrison Gates and Rescue Dichi. Now all that is left to do is defeat dong Zhuo and caoture Shuten Doji. Head to the north central part of the field. The garrison gates will open and we do more battling with the demon army. Inside will be Dong Zhuo defeat him and he will once again retreat. Heading north a bit more, Shuten Doji will begin to flee. Destroy the units around him and he will be captured. This will end up in a victory for the resistence. *** VICTORY *** Zhang He will Join Xiang Cai will Join Oichi will join Nene will join katsuie Shibata will join Shuten Doji will join _________________________________________ 7. Battle of Luoyang - Luoyang _________________________________________ Pretty easy level, we just want to keep our allies alive. The enemy will be trying to sack our hold. Defeat all the enemies advancing. After that we can start heading a bit south. The demon army will keep calling in reinforcments. They will also keep trying to advance. Shuten Doji must be kept alive, As well as Yashi'ori. Take out stripleg his units, and then a little north to take out orbweaver. In this level you will be backtracking often to proctect your allies. So be aware of that. After proctecting the allies, and defeating most of the officers another cut scene will begin. The Hydra will appear near the Yashi'ori. Jump in the High tech Yashi'ori and begin blasting the Hydra. This is much more effective then the ballista we battled with at the games first level. X to fire, and B for the beam. Wait for the beam to fully charge once it does, unleash a devastating blow on the Hydra. This should take him out, if used in conjunction with fire based attacks to let the beam charge. Watch the Cutscene, of the blast and the Hydra will go down. Now just finish off the rest of the officers and unique enemies. Orochi and Kenji Maeda are two of them. Once they are down as well as the units and the Yashi'ori saved as well as our allies. Victory is sure. ** VICTORY *** - Kenji Maeda will Join - Masamune Date will Join _______________________________________________ 8. Battle of Sekigahara - Sekigahara _______________________________________________ We will be doing battle against the MYSTIC army. Starting off in the North West part of the map. Begin to work your way through the enemies to the south. The Resistence army will spilt into two at this point. A little ways south east, we run into Monocero, defeat him to open up the gates.

Battle of Tong Gate - Tong _____________________________________ Defend the area we start in, Let the enemy come to you. Lu Bu and Diaochan are the main focus. Lu bu will retreat after defeat, and Diaochan will die in battle. This results in a path being opened and the resistence will gain morale. We will also be teamed up with Da ji and the mystic army at this point. Basically in this level, we must keep running to each Garrison and defeating the enemies and officers in each to capture the garrison. The first is in the starting area, to the far west where we begin the level. The next is in the central area of the map. Sack them both and gain morale while were at it.

Defeat the two officers, to capture the central garrison. Then Get ready to fight Gai pi. We will also go to a cut scene of Susano at this point. Susano , will order his army to capture Da Ji. Susano is ridiculousy strong, with tons of HP and High defenses. At the start of this battle just specifically for this segment, level weapons especially. Have high level characters and use your triple tech and best attacks. He will be followed up by even more officers so do not let your guard down. Susano will retreat after defeat as will his units. Head east to the next garrison. Take out Sima yi and Sima Lama. Then Finally make your way to Cao pi. Cao Pi, is nothing on Susano and you also should have enough Health/ Mosou at this point to take him down. Da Ji will be safe after his defeat.

At this point a boulder attack will begin against the resistence army. Defean Zhao Yun, Watch out for the archers they will rain arrows upon you and your units.

Except now were going to head back west through the hill and some boulders. Keep heading west past another watch tower. Enter the next enemy unit garrison. Defeat Meng da, and the base captain officers. Then take out the units that are left over. High power characters work great on this more difficult level. After the garrison is cleared, Head North, Take out Zhang Yi and Fa Zheng. This should make the shu army retreat and stop thier attack. The resistence army in the west will continue the advance. Stay here finishing off the rest of the captains and officers. Then head north. Tadakatsu Honda is the next major unique enemy. Defeat him to open up Yangping gate. Head back south once again around the spiral hill. Liao yao and li yan, have arrived on the scene. Take them down with all you have got.

Battle of Changban - Changban _____________________________________ Wild level here with a ton of twist and turns. We will be doing battle vs the oda army. Start off heading east and take out Yoritaka Haticha. Shigetomo Takayama, should be taken out next. The gates to the south east will then open. Despite all the twist and turns in this small town area, it is rather simple. Just keep advancing across the map, taking out the enemies and officers obviously along the way. If you or your units make it to the square on the east side, you can execute a boulder attack AGAINST the enemy. Keep this in mind to even the odds. Once you reach central map, You will run into Nagachika Kamamori. Dian wei is with him defeat of them both will open up central garrison gates. Resulting in both party morale as well. Continue to head west through the army. Far west will be the Two Samurai we need to defeat. Namakara sassa, and Shige Nakagawa.

Sun Ce Will Join ! ________________________________________ 4. Battle of Shizugatake - Shizugatake ________________________________________ First we must Capture the eastern garrison. Our parties find it suspicious that the other garrison is lightly guarded. This means we could be susceptible to ambush there. Head east and battle Kageie Kakizaki, Continue on your way east until the path wraps north. North path will reveal some weak base captains, and regular units take them down then head east. taking out these units and the base captain, will result in the easter garrison gates being open. These are confirmed to in fact traped as well as the first attempted garrison we originally planned on attacking. Then more bad news, an ambush has come from the North. Lead by Kansuke Yamato. We must make our way through the enemies and ther are tons of them. Use power characters here. Sima Zhao Should be very high leveled at this point. If he is not then definitley use your highest level character. Finally after taking out these officers and unique samurai enemies, our messengers have pulled through ! Reinforcments of the enemy appear in the North and north west parts of the map. Horse back as quickly as possible to take out those markers. Sima Jin is one of the Samurai's take him down, The Lingui army will retreat. Simi yi is the next marker Take him out and hopefully the explosives have been set at this point by our allies. Walk or horseback To the next ship of enemy reinforcments to the south. Go there And do battle with the Utegi brothers. Take them both out. Yoshikiro Murakami has arrived on the scene as well as the final brother of Uesugi, Kenshen. Shingen Takeda is the marker and the leader of the enemy units. Once he is down this will ensure the VICTORY ! *** VICTORY *** - Aya has Joined ! ______________________________________ 5. Battle of Honnoji - Honnoji _____________________________________ Starting off south central, work your way towards Honnoji garrison. Encounter with Sadakato Murai, Defeat him and all his enemy units. There will be several captains, his defeat will bring up unit morale. Keep advancing north of the map, Hidemaki nori will be the next target. Take him down , or just start attacking him for a cut scene to begin. " Tiger " will join the cause, and increase resistence morale. There will be Hidekatsu Fukutomi, and Sun Juan will speak of the gun powder. Honnoji will begin to catch fire. Defeat Fukutomi. Work your way to the North west at the further point of the map marker. Heading towards this area, will open up the gates revealing the next section of enemies. Nagachika Kanamori and kazudo yamachui. Take them both down and then near all the fire that has broken out, will be Kazumgama Taikei take him down then advance to the next marker. Fu Xi the next samurai, can be dangerous use your triple tech attack here. This Samurai in particula has some nasty projectile attacks so be extra careful, and don't forget about focusing on his units at the same time. After he is down the next marker will be to enter the main hall. Mitsuharu Fuwa will appear the the Oda Army will gain Morale, once he is defeated as well as nakagawa, Koroku Hachisuka another samurai will appear. Take him down, all the while we are still avoiding the fire and making our way to the main hall. Nubomuri Sakuma is very easy he is usually waiting at the very north center of the field. after he is down get on top of the roofs where more units of the enemy wait with "No" is thier leader. Take him down with all that you have on top the roofs and No will retreat finish off more of the units and make your way inside the dojo. Bokuzen Ujie , must be taken down now inside of the huge dojo. Nobunaga Oda the master mind of the Oda army. He is amazingly fast, and can do a ton of damage as well. Use your BEST character here and your Mosou to the fullest. He is one of the hardest encounters so far. Take him out to get the VICTORY ! *** VICTORY *** Uijyasu Hojo Has Joined Nobunaga Oda has Joined Sun Jian has Joined ! No has joined Xu zi has joined ! ______________________________________ 6. Battle For Fan Castle _____________________________________ Big map, suggest having some speed based characters. The south west road is cut off. We have to use the north western road to get to Changou. Cao Xiu will be the first enemy Samurai encounter here. Nothing to bad so take him out with the basics. Head north past the shallow river, and get ready for a ton of fighting Samurais, captains, and officers will all be in this area save a triple tech threat attack for now if your having trouble. Heading to the next marker we have to take down Cao Pi next. this will be in the center of the map near a strong hold made of stone. Xiahou dun Will be the next samurai encounter his defeat will raise party morale. Head all the way north west, to the next boulder fall cut scene. The enemy has blocked off the path way. Nuwa another femlae Samurai will appear with her units take her out and she will retreat as well. The mission conditions will change shortly after her demise. We must Defeat Cao Cao. Some of our party members will be against this but never the less that is our mission at this point. - Li feng - Wang Chan - Zhang Nan These are some more enemy Samurai/Officers that will be encountered on our way to Cao Cao. Heading east we will Run into Xu Xuan at a point as well as he troops. He is another easy take down. - Du Xi - Wen Pin - Liu Shao - Cao Yu - Jia Ku - Chen Jiao Not to mention a complete barrage of enemy units. Hope you have leveled for this point. The mAin marker is Cao Cao. Using your best characters switching between speed and power, with some Mosou + Triple tech and high levels they should go down. This Will be another VICTORY ! enjoy the great cut scene ! - Xiahou Dun will Join - Cao Cao will Join - Nuwa will Join _____________________________________ 7. Battle of Yamazaki - Yamazaki _____________________________________ Pretty short level here, Basically the main goal is to take down Sasano'o. At the same time we want to protect Da ji. Starting off in the southwest portion of the map we must also defeat some officers to open up the two garrisons making a path way for our units. to do so one of the major problems and most likely the only other source of trouble, will be the Samurai Phoneix. Phoneix comes very early in the level though with little support. Take down Phoneix then work your way complete to the North East and Confront Sasano'o. Another rough battle with this guy. Suggest Levels of at least 35+ With your best character and or characters. Once Sasano'o is down get ready for a very awesome cut scenem featuring Sasano'o and Da ji. ****************VICTORY*********************** _____________________________________________- 8. Battle of Hulao Gate - Hulao ___________________________________________ Make way for the Yashio'tori The Hydra will be in this level with not just one but two heads this time. That means two heads to take down. Use the Same tactics as last time on the Yashio'ori. Use basic fire attacks until the beam charges all the way. Once complete charge is full, unleash it on the Hydra heads. Rinse and Repeat for both Hydras. After Successful defeat of two hydra heads There will be another cut scene. More demons as well as Kiyomori Taira have returned ! Main goal now is to take care of Kiyomori Taira and everything that comes with him. Be aware of heavy minotaurs tons of captains and of course more Diamond back and tangle web demons. Also this is probably the largest amount of enemies encountered at once in this game. I suggest taking on as many "side missions" as you can in this level and get those K.O. Counts up as once again tons of enemies here. Keep following and beating your marker point enemies. Eventually making your way to Kiyomori Taira. Once he goes down, he will begin to RALLY. The garrison gates will open with tons of demon army. Triple tech time for sure, unleash these attacks. Beware of the poison mist that envelops the area. The poison mist is just that, poison get out of there quick while taking at the enemies at the same time. Head all the way south west to the Orochi Gate. Break the crates and any other breakables. You should be doing this at all times, to stock up on new gear. Once you reach the Orochi gate, A cut Scene with Shuten Doji will come up. Watch the dodge matrix style Then the next marker. :: DEFEAT OROCHI :: Orochi is a nasty ugly, powerful demon with a huge amount of HP. He can one shot you at lower levels on the highest of diffculty. Since we are on normal mode he is not so bad. Let us use our best character to take him down. A power character is usually the best for one on one battle. Once again I suggest Sima Zhao. - Sima Ji - Cao Pi - Xhengi All join the party ! ____________________________________ 9. The Battle of Chengdu ___________________________________ We must make haste before the Hydra arrives. Starting off in the central of the battle field map. Dong Zhou will be here, and introduce himself formaly. We must take the North Western garrison. On the Way we run into an over powered Galena. Galena is a huge minotaur demon with a high amount of HP. Mosou and triple techs For the win (FTW). Head south from here, and take out 3-4 captains. Still doing battle with the demon army another officer with his minions will appear named Mamushi. Take him down then head north over the big draw bridge. A Messenger will arrive to tell of the Hydra attack being Delayed. Another report from our party to mobilize the arabelest. South west corner, take out Li Riu. Then receive another report to assist Cao Cao. Head all the way North west to a spiral mountain bridge. Once on the bridge spiral down south. Take out Hu Zhen IN the south east part of the field. Take horse back and head north east. take out Huntsman, Hooknose, and fan chou. - Huntsman - Hooknose - Fan Chou - Keelback After taking them out, head directly south to the radial green marker. The demon forces Lead by a nasty Minotuar demon named Yitterbite and Xu Rong. Take them out then defeat the demon forces in the south east. Follow the glowing green radial if your lost. Susano'o Will appear- Peasants will escape : Susano'o : Once again we will do battle with the demon Susano'o. Power character, ice slide works nice to take out some of his minions or units. Once he is down get ready for another cut scene and of course the victory ! **** VICTORY **** - Zhuge Liang Will Join -Liu Bei will Join - Dong Zhuo will join - Ieyasu Tokogawa will join ! ________________________________________ 10. Battle of Osaka Castle - Osaka _______________________________________ Head north taking out all officers/ enemy samurai in your path. Our party will be using the arabalest against the demon army at this point. When we think it is an easy victory, Sun Wukong will spilt into 3 and begin his advnace. At this point victory conditions will change, Take out Sun wukong and diamondback. Sun Wukong is very fast and has some nasty lightning attacks that will knock down your character as well as stun + the noticeable damage. Oh yeah and did I mention Sun Wukong has spilt into three? -Copper head -Huntsman -red back -harvestman -blood leg - All unqiue enemy officers will be along the road take advantage of this for the XP and take them all down. Head to the center of the Map and search for diamondback. He will be with 2 other giant minotaur demons. Take out the minotaurs first then take down Diamond back. With the defeat of diamond back, this will take down the demon army once again and ensure a victory for now. ***VICTORY*** - Kenshen Uegei - Shingei Takemada will join ! END OF CHAPTER 3 !!!!!! __________________________________________ 1. The Slaying of the Hydra - Hydra2 ___________________________________________ Use the yashio'tori to slay the hydra. First we have to get to it though. - Kiyomori Taira and the demon army will be a huge problem in this level. We have to take down his army, officers and samurais to open up the gates to lanuch a full attack on the hydra heads. - This is a very difficult level, probably the hardest in the game. I suggest levels of 40+ even higher. Use and fuse your best weapon ideas possible and level your favorite characters at least 3 of them. Power speed and technique character and or power speed and wonder. Taira will also be resurrected enemies as well as the Hydra so same tactics with the Yashio'ori - Wait until beam is full then blast at the Hydra Do not let the Machine be destroyed. head around all markers on the maps, to open up all guard post, this is easier said then done. once again levels and good weapons are the keys to victory. Kiyomori Taira will be defeated often in this battle, he will then flee and ressurect himself at another location on the map. Keeping the guardpost doors open, will allow us to make way to the Yashio'ori machine. Use it like we have been doing. Fire attacks to fully charged beam attacks on the Hydras head for extra damage. Every head defeated will result in more morale gained for the resistence. Finally when all Hydra heads are down we will acheive victory ! *** VICTORY *** __________________________________ 2. Orochi's End - Oroend ________________________________ - Orochi can make incarnations of themselves so we will be doing battle with many of them. The demon army, stripleg,blockhead, and diamondback etc. Will be on the scene as well. - Once orochi uses sorcery all orochi and units have increased power. -Keep up with glowing markers, taking out all orochi units. They are really not very difficult after all we have been through. Especially at our levels now, with great weapons as well. - There are about 6-7 orochi to take out on the field. The last one is a bit harder then the rest, but nothing over powered. - Best advice is to just follow the marker, the level is actually quite easy to navigate as well are the battles with our game experience at this point, as well as our character levels and weapons. - Enjoy the Cut scene and the victory ! *** VICTORY *** _________________________________________ 3. Susano'o's Last Stand - LastStand ________________________________________ Were going to start off at the very south west portion of the map. Make your way all the way to the top North East part where Suasano'o will belocated. Of course there will be tons of trouble along the way. Equeelus is a noticeable battle, but your probably going to want to save Mosou as well as Triple tech attack for Susano'o. It's up to you. At level 45+ and the jist of this game it is not to much trouble. The Cut Scenes, start getting really interesting at this point so i do not want to spoil things for you. As far as the battle with Susano'o goes. High levels + triple tech to take him out. Power Enemy may sound like the right idea, but a Speed or Wonder character at good levels will serve even better due to his low resistence or big target to projectile attacks. **** VICTORY **** ____________________________________- 4. Final Level : Demise Of Orochi X ! - XORO _______________________________________ - accept all :missions: for this battle. - Best Party avaible (highest levels) - Level 50 If Possible will make this whole level a breeze on basic modes. - Life augmenting gear is key be sure to have your phoneix items on all characters. - High Level Phoneix Wing - High Level Lions Fang - Best Possible weapons - Best Fusion Combos and attributes *** Check the Weapons FAQ on GAMEFAQS.COM *** - Best weapon guide avalible on the web ! *** SPOLIERS FINAL LEVEL **** - Starting off north west we will enter the castle and immediatley run into Suntiger Wipe the floor with your level 50 + might Ryu Hayabusa if you perfer. - Head west from this point and do battle with Golden Rod. After Golden Rod is down The Central gate will grow weaker. - South West of the Map will be a huge Minotaur Levyne. Take him down if you would like for more xp + mission points. - From South West head South west some more use horse back to speed things up. Breaking the sacred Orb Will weaken the central gate some more. Resulting in Resistence morale as well. -Kiyomori Taira will arrive at this point where we will get a chance to finally finish him off once and for all. * DEFEAT KIYOMORI TAIRA * - Taira will have all his officers with him in this battle. Take them out one by one especially the ever pesky diamondback who has been uber annoying throughout the whole game. - Take him down with your best attacks of course, and this will open up the final path. - Taiga will tell us his defeat will not stop Orochi as well. These words can not mean anything well for the resistence. - Continue through the now open path We will go up a spiral pathway. It consist of enemy after enemy. Minotaurs, captains up to 20 units and a captain at once on Normal. Like I said earlier very tough without the proper equpment and or levels. - Once we Reach the Top we will meet OROCHI - X The Final Confrontation ! - Take Him out with Triple Tech, Your best characters especially led by Power based character. Bolt works really effective on Orochi as well as some ice damage. He seems to be weaker to elemental attacks. Since strength is the only attack counter in the game, Remember that all special and or attribute based attacks are still based around strength. Knowing this should be for the win and of course the FINAL VICTORY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Congratulations on beating Warriors Orochi 3- - Codebreak1337 Andrew Turelli jr -Gamefaqs.com
