Hey, I've been using your guide to complete Wu, and just started using it to complete Jin now, but I'm stuck on stage 7 of their story, I've gone through it 3 times and can't get 3 of the bosses to come out of their bases without killing Wen Qin

Not sure what I'm doing wrong lol

Instead of going through the castle like you normally would, go down the cliff by where Ding Feng arrives. They'll come out of their bases one by one, not all at once. (be patient)

You essentially have to fail the pincer attack mission on purpose (if you get the message saying the plot has failed, you're more or less on the right track, Sima Zhao will then call for a ram, etc)

Great guide, however I've encountered a problem:
Quote:
 
Stage 6 - Battle of Mt. Tielong
*Difficulty of getting star objective = 3/5
*Objective
1. Successfully rescuing Guo Huai will affect the Battle of Xu Chang.

2. Successfully rescuing Guo Huai will enable him to appear during the rebellion by the two officers.

TIP - This is a pretty tricky stage to complete on your first playthrough. First defeat the officer 'Hang Shu' when the gate open, then after that ignore the mission that comes after. Press start and go to the Battlefield Info and locate the officer called Li Jian, make sure you defeat him as he will steal the Wei uniform and retreat. He will come back later and use the Wei uniform to pretend as one of the Wei officers and then kill Guo Huai. Here is a map to help.


Hang Shu doesn't appear at all(not even on the enemy officer list). So I just go straight for Li Jian, kill him, and he reappears later. Of course I kill him before he gets to Guo Huai.

However, I still fail the objective.

You have to follow Zhuge Liang's orders while rescuing the 3 officers marked as green. Make sure you save them really quick, after that rush to Ma Su before Zhang He and Guo Huai attacks him.

Ok I'm confused, and I've just skim read the pages and I don't think anyone has asked this yet (sorry if someone has and I missed it)

Do you have to beat the whole story for the kingdom before you can play the hypothetical stages? I just beat a battle getting the conditions for it but the hypothetical battle didn't appear after? Will it when I beat the story?

Tbh I'm not even sure this is how you unlock them. I'm talking about the battles that have "x" after the number. How do you unlock them?

^Thanks

If someone could put up a list of exactly what we have to do to unlock the STAGES that would be great, I've looked online and I can't seem to find any site that has done that oddly. It seems so far we only have details of how to make characters appear in later battles...

Just to add to one of the Jin levels. When you're saving Guo Huai, make sure to kill Xingcai in the bottom base and destroy all the wood oxen too before you head around the bottom path.

Hi,

For Stage 3 - Defense of Xu Provice,

What officers do you need to defeat after Guo Jia calls for retreat? I defeated all the guys in the southern part of the map, and before Guo Jia calls for retreat I only defeated officers inside the base.

I got Liu Ye, Li Dian, Yue Jin, Liu Dai and Lu Qian (maybe a few more down there), but didn't get credit for the star course.

You need to defeat the reinforcements, I cant remember their names but I'm 100% sure that Li Dian isnt one of them, hes the one controlling the catapults.

You arent supposed to defeat any of the reinforcements before Guo Jia calls for retreat, you kill them all AFTER.

Wu, Hypothetical Route Shouchun...

How long do I have to wait in that area for the 'Suspicious Activity' to occur? Because yeah... Jia Xu was repelled from the main camp and now it's just playing the waiting game.

Any idea on a time frame?


NEVERMIND. The moment Sun Jian asked for assistance and I was gearing to abandon the mission, it occurred. This game trolls me sometimes.

THIS, for everyone who's stuck on that level. Also, I'm pretty sure you have to prevent the fire attack from happening as well.

Another small note on the level where you save Guo Huai... if you did not prevent Xiahou Ba from joining up with Shu, then it will be him that you will need to defeat at the top right of the map instead of Li Jian.

Thanks for making such a fantastic guide, Wynter!

Question - If I have got the stars on battles previous to Fan Castle, can I stage select if to open up the path or do I have to start the story mode again?

You can just select "play all" from Fan Castle (or just "Play Stage" if you dont want to move on). You don't have to start over.

One of them is an officer with a fancy helmet on. He will be the second reinforcement that spawns from the southwestern most exit.
