This is the second FAQ I have ever written so I should be getting the hang of it a bit by now. But I'm sure that there are plenty of nice people out there who will tell me what I have done wrong. I will give credit to them for helping me. Well I think I have said enough ( technically typed but hey ) so I hope you enjoy this FAQ and I hope that it helps you. ******************************************************************************* 3. Story: ----------- Descending from above, the evil Serpent King Orochi shattered time and space to test his strength against the most courageous warriors from Ancient China and Feudal Japan. Great armies fell, yet many are still fighting for survival - and now the greatest showdown in history is about to take place... ( Taken from the back of the game case ) ******************************************************************************* 4. Controls: -------------- The controls in this game are similar to the others, but here is a quick list, to show you what buttons do what: Main Menu or Battle Menu: --------------------------- Left Analogue Stick or directional buttons = Move up and down X = Confirm Triangle = Back Select a character screen: ---------------------------- Left Analogue Stick or directional buttons = Move in all directions X = Confirm Triangle = Back Circle = Change character outfit In battle: ------------ Square = Normal Attack Triangle = Charge Attack Circle = Musou Attack X = Jump L1 = Block R1 = Special Ability L2 - R2 = Switch between characters in your team Select = Call for horse Start = Open up battle menu Left Analogue Stick = Move around R3 ( Push Right Analogue Stick in ) = Change map type Right Analogue Stick = Change the camera angle Gallery: ---------- Left Analogue Stick or directional buttons = Move up and down X = Confirm Triangle = Back Highlighting Picture in the Gallery: -------------------------------------- X = See a bigger version Triangle = Back Circle = Set as background Square = Remove background ******************************************************************************* 5.a) Da Ji: Who is Da Ji? --------------------------- That is a good question. Da Ji is Orochi's strategist. She is a very cruel woman who will stop at nothing just to hurt somebody. Da Ji is a technique type character. ******************************************************************************* 5.b) Da Ji: History --------------------- Da Ji was real. Da Ji was the beautiful daughter of a noble family named Su in the state of Yousu. Zhou, the king of Shang, conquered the state of Su and took Da Ji as his trophy. ******************************************************************************* 5.c) Da Ji: Overall story involvement --------------------------------------- Spoilers: ----------- Da Ji is Orochi's strategist. She works with Orochi to defeat the Resistance Armies. In Wei story mode she gets captured and works with them to defeat Orochi, only to betray them at a later stage. ******************************************************************************* 5.d) Da Ji: Moveset --------------------- S = Square T = Triangle Standing Attacks: ------------------- S = Skidding to the side as the balls spin around her. ( Moving ) SSSSSSSSS = A series of spinning attacks with a few leaping kicks. T = Sharp purple ice comes up from the ground. ST = One spinning attack, then does a backflip and the balls follow. SSTTT = Two spinning attacks, then followed by another two spinning attacks and then at the end the balls float up and circle around her. SSST = Two spinning attacks, then followed by a leaping kick, then followed by jumping through the air forwards and spinning around with her balls following her. SSSST = Two spinning attacks, then followed by two leaping kicks, then followed by her going down low, then into a handstand, then pushes herself upwards and into the air with the balls following her, then lands on her feet. SSSSST = Two spinning attacks, then followed by two leaping kicks, then followed by her throwing the balls downwards, then followed by her channelling magic through the balls and into two lasers that fly forwards. Musou = She floats up into the air throwing fire, and then does a backflip at the end. True Musou = Exactly the same apart from at the end she throws down two fires. Jump Attack = The balls move to the side. Jump Charge = Does a backflip and propels herself into the enemy. Does a flip at the end and lands on her feet. L1 = Block ( Not Moving ) L1 + Left Analogue Stick = Block ( Moving ) R1 = Since Da Ji is a technique type, she can use R1 for many things. When an enemy hits you and you press R1 she will counter attack, when you press R1 she will do her special move, when you press SR1 - SSSSSR1 she will do her normal charge attacks just much quicker. All of these will consume musou. Mounted Attacks: ------------------ T = The horse rears up and attacks the enemy ( Not moving ) T = The horse jumps and lands, hurts the enemy ( Moving ) SSSSSS = Attacks to her left and right simultaneously. ST - SSSSST = Attacks to her left and right simultaneously, then attacks with both balls. Musou = The horse charges forwards with a barrier in front of it, it hits anybody in it's way, while Da Ji attacks to her left and right simultaneously and quickly. L1 = Block ( Not Moving ) L1 + Left Analogue Stick = Block ( Moving ) ******************************************************************************* 5.e) Da Ji: How to unlock her ------------------------------- Unlocking Da Ji isn't hard, it just takes alot of time. To unlock Da Ji you have to clear all the stages in the game, this included Gaiden stages. Note: ------- You do not have to do all the missions in the stages correctly, just complete all of the stages and you will unlock her. ******************************************************************************* 5.f) Da Ji: Why use her? -------------------------- This is a good question! Why should you use Da Ji? Because I said so... Not really. Because she's one of the quickest characters in the game, her R1 is very powerful, her moves look cool, she is fun to use, she has good range with her attacks and with the right attributes on her weapon she has the potential to become one of the best characters in the game. Just give her a try! ******************************************************************************* 5.g) Da Ji: Who works best in a team with her? ------------------------------------------------ That's really a matter of opinion on who works best in a team with her... but if you build up Orochi, then he's good with her... Hideyoshi is great with his special move, she's already quick as it is but with his special, you can imagine how quick she would be then. Or you could just choose whoever works best for you... your favourite character, or your strongest character, it's entirely up to you! Oh on a side note... Hideyoshi is good with Da Ji, but I have to admit, his voice is very annoying so don't let that stop you from using him, although it nearly stopped me from using him. Here are some of the teams that I have used... Here you go: -------------- Team 1 -------- Da Ji, Orochi and Hideyoshi This team is great if you know how to use them right... Hideyoshi's buff works perfectly on Da Ji, I think she becomes easier to use with his buff on. Orochi is there because if you get in a tight spot, then he's good to have on your team, plus you can't seperate them two can you? Okay, I lied, but he is still good to have in. Team 2 -------- Da Ji, Kunoichi and Hideyoshi This team is also great, do the same thing with Hideyoshi as you did before, and the same with Da Ji, but Kunoichi can get you out of some tight spots with her R1 special. Team 3 -------- Da Ji, Kunoichi and Xing Cai This team is a very good team. Xing Cai is great if you use her special ability alot, and know how to join the together. This is how you join them together. First press R1 and the left Analogue stick for her to do a backflip and a kind of tornado come out, then press R1 again quickly to hit the enemy with her shield, after that, jump and do her charge, repeat until the enemy dies. Kunoichi is great for getting you out of tight spots, and her SSTTT is a great crowd clearer. Read below how to use Da Ji. ******************************************************************************* 5.h) Da Ji: How to use her ----------------------------- Da Ji is a very hard character to use if you don't know how to. Most of her moves are very hard to pull off but if you're not that good with her, practice. If you can't be bothered to practice, then just use her R1 special, her T and her ST. These moves are great. Also SSTTT is a great crowd clearer. All of Da Ji's moves are effective, her SSST can get you out of tricky situations. Her SSSST can knock the enemies around you out of the way so you have time to get started on a new combo. I find her SSSSST move pointless. She is hard to control as it is, but that move doesn't do much damage and it's hard to aim where it's going to go. Her SSSSSSSSS move is good and easy to do, but it can be hard aiming it at the enemy. As I said before, practice and you'll get the hang of it. ******************************************************************************* 5.i) Da Ji: Recommended Weapon Attributes -------------------------------------------- First off I'm going to give you a list of the attributes, and what they do. Here you go... ----------------- Fire: Sets opponent on fire with some charge attacks, good for the earlier difficulty settings. Ice: Freezes opponents with some charge attacks. Bolt: Very powerful, with some charge attacks but 100% guaranteed to happen. Very powerful, good for all modes. Slay: Very powerful, does good damage against generals and can kill peons in one hit, with some charge attacks. Brave: Increases your attack strength against generals. Flash: Breaks through the enemy's guard. Air: Increases your attack strength when enemies are airborne. Range: Increases your attack range. Multi: Produces Clones when doing charge attacks. Drain: Absorbs enemy's life. Might: Increases attack strength. Absorb: Absorbs enemy's musou. Agility: Increases attack speed, all charge attacks. Rage: Increases Strength, Decreases Health. That's all of them. All of these go up to 10, the attack goes up 20 and you can have 8 slots. Here's the weapons: --------------------- Weapon 1: ----------- Bolt Slay Flash Range Might Agility Brave Air This weapon is a great crowd clearer, but is very hard to control. It's powerful, if you can use Da Ji. Weapon 2: ----------- Bolt Slay Flash Range Might Brave Agility Fire This weapon is a great crowd clearer too. But if you can't use Da Ji that well then this is the weapon for you. It's still really quick, but the added fire element will let you juggle enemies and still kill them quickly too. It honestly doesn't matter which weapon you choose. It's just whatever you feel confident with. ******************************************************************************* 5.j) Da Ji: How to unlock her Personal Item ---------------------------------------------- Unlocking Da Ji's Personal Item is quite hard. First of all do the SW story. The battle is Kawanakajima, Gaiden 2 oh and you have to be Da Ji. It doesn't matter who is in your team. Bear in mind you can get this item on any difficulty. Here is what you have to do... -------------------------------- Do the level normally. Wait for the reinforcements to come. When they come, defeat the generals Ieyasu Tokugawa and Dong Zhuo. Once done, continue down the path where Dong Zhuo was and the gates to the enemy main camp will open. Go in and kill Sima Yi. Now the Personal Item will appear. You need to be quick, because as soon as you kill the reinforcements, the peasants will retreat and once they have retreated the battle ends. ******************************************************************************* 5.k) Da Ji: How to get a good 4th weapon ------------------------------------------- To get Da Ji a good 4th weapon do this... Get her to a level 80+ Get her Personal Item Get her proficience maxed Get a good 3rd weapon Now go to the Wu Story and go Gaiden 4, Wan Castle. It doesn't matter who you have in your team as you should only need Da Ji for this battle. Okay. Done? Do this level on Chaos mode! Yes Chaos mode! There are 4 weapon boxes in this level. 3 in actual boxes and 1 off of Pang De. This level really isn't hard. You don't even have to make sure that the peasants survive. Now that you have got the 4th weapon, it's time to start using it! Make sure you have a lot of weapon fusion points. Because you are going to need them. Note: ------- This stage is great for getting everybodies 4th weapons. Just use Da Ji and get even the weakest character's 4th weapons! The name of her Personal Item is Sacrificial Alter for those of you who were wondering. ******************************************************************************* 5.l) Da Ji: Name of Weapons ------------------------------ Here's the names of Da Ji's weapons and their base attacks Here they are: ----------------- 1st Weapon ------------- Marbles of Chaos Base Attack = 9 2nd Weapon ------------- Globes of Atrophy Base Attack = 18 3rd Weapon ------------- Spheres of Decay Base Attack = 36 4th Weapon ------------- Orbs of Ruin Base Attack = 73 ******************************************************************************* 5.m) Da Ji: Abilities she unlocks ------------------------------------ Okay, here I am going to put the skills Da Ji unlocks and how she unlocks them.
