Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|What happens in the Battle of Chen Cang, in either force, when the defenses of Chen Cang's main gate are breached?||"Dynasty Warriors 5": Events
Hao Zhao calls in a fire arrow unit.. Hao Zhao will bring in a fire arrow unit, but it's pretty useless, as Hao Zhao's morale will be non-existent by this point. You will have set several siege ramps up by now, so there's no challenge.
"Superior". Just for reference, "Superior" is the "Dynasty Warriors 5" "Winning" music. "Swept Away" is the "Skirmish" music, "Overdrive" is the "Dominant" music, and "The Bringer of War" the Battle of Hu Lao Gate music.
A Wei Forces' Morale increase.. Gan Ning is a very difficult foe as he is in Hyper Mode, so the morale increase is fairly well deserved. The music doesn't change to "Swept Away" or the Wei Army charge until Cao Ren arrives as reinforcements.
|At the Battle of Guan Du, Cao Cao's Forces, which requirements must be fulfilled before Yuan Shao opens Wu Chao?||"Dynasty Warriors 5": Events
Yan Liang must be defeated.. Unlike in "Dynasty Warriors 4", Bai Ma and Yan Jin must in fact stay intact for a certain time after Yan Liang has been defeated. Then Yuan Shao will open Wu Chao, and until you defeat Chunyu Qiong, Yuan Shao's Forces morale will skyrocket.
Liu Bei and Zhang Ren begin to advance.. Losing Pang Tong is not much of a disadvantage, since Liu Bei wll take his place anyway. However, Zhang Ren will advance too, and he has high morale, so the downside is that Liu Bei will be in danger.
You cannot stop them.. The good thing about this is that Wei gets these indestructible defenses when you are playing as them too. This helps to stall the Wu advance, and they assist you in defeating officers.
Zhu Ran/Lu Xun. Some may not have known but in fact defeating Lu Xun could prevent the fire attack too. Most never do, as Lu Xun is stronger and deeper in the enemy camp.
Defeat Zhang Yan then do not go past the defense base he is in for a certain period of time.. When playing as Lu Bu or Diao Chan, Diao Chan will first say to defeat Zhang Yan, then: "Let's hold off and regroup with our hosts." This means: do not advance beyond the defense base Zhang Yan was in for those who didn't know.
