Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires Tips
Back to top
To obtain the 1000 kills medal for your lovely character you may play the game in any difficulty, but it's better to get it in NOVICE. Attack an area which got lotsa troops, but not the base of the force then deploy only ONE of your character and fight for honor and glory. Occupy all the bases except the ones that linked straight to the main camp (e.g. if you battle at Bai Di Castle don't capture the base in the castle and the two at the northern and southern side of the maincamp). Kill anybody in the maincamp and voila! They will keep appear because you can't capture the maincamp without allied supply line. Keep killing and you'll get 1000 kills in no time
If you don't like someone's persoanlity, but love there weapon and want to get there fourth weapon, just create a edit character with there weapon. Then works your way and get the ofurth weapon as that person. Congrats, you just got the officers best weapon.

Non-Gameshark Stat Boosting:
In Free mode, select the Battle Of He Fei Castle as the Wu Forces on the Normal difficulty setting. Start by taking out the officers outside the first gates. One of them will drop a Life +20.
Next, kill Xu Huang for an Attack +8. Then, go around the right side, killing all officers, sub-generals, and anyone with a name. You should always get +4 power-ups. The officer on the horse will drop a weapon. Collect it, then go through the "security system".
You will eventually meet Cao Ren. Kill him for a +8 Defense, then go up and kill Xu Zhu for +8 Attack. At the left of this platform is a crate with a weapon box in it. Go through the gate and take the path to the left. The officer there has a +8 Defense. Then, cut across to the right and kill Sima Zhao for a +4 Defense. Next, take out Sima Yi for a +8 Defense.
Finally, complete the level by killing Cao Pi. This will max out the stats at the character selection screen, but only half-way at the action selection screen. You must use the level 20 amulets to max this out.
Also, this is not the best place to use a fresh character. Get a little boost by completing the Yellow Turban Rebellion level on the Easy difficulty setting a few times to get some weapons and some basic stat boosts.
To get all the clothings in edit mode you have to beat empire mode at least once.
First, you need to have purchased the force march tactic, then go to battle.
Put your tactic on, then start the battle, use the tactic, force march that you purchased, it should last about 2 minutes normally, next during play, keep rapidly pressing one of the command buttons, (up, down, left, right) because your character keeps speaking, the game battle log can't say the tactic has stopped working, therefore, the effects of the tactic last about 5 minutes longer.
First you must take Luo Yong,
then start production,
produce all items until you get to
The Red Hare Harness(There are 4)
Produce 4 Red Hare Harneses,
then click Hire Wide,
find Zhuge Liang, then click him and hire,
he will say he wants 4 Red Hare's to join,
Click yes and he will take the items,
but in return he will join you.
This will not work if he is the Ruler of the force.
Note: Red Hare Cost 1500 Gold a Piece
"The Passion of Jiang Dong"
Choose the scenario "Dong Zhuo in Luo Yang" and play as Sun Jian. Take the
empty territory on your left, after that ally with Cao Cao (to make sure
he doesn't lose Pu Yang) then just wait until around 207 AD. By now you
should have Sun Jian, Sun Ce, Sun Quan and Sun Shang Xiang, if you don't
keep waiting until you do. Now with Cao Cao still having Pu Yang and with
all 4 Suns end the alliance you have with Cao Cao and if you have the policy
"Hard March" it will make it so much easier to get to Cao Cao.(otherwise gain
territory up towards Pu Yang while waiting for the year 207 AD) Now invade
Pu Yang with Sun Jian, Sun Ce, Sun Quan and as reinforcements Sun Shang Xiang
and you will get the cg movie.

this step until he does get killed. Once Cao Cao is dead choose Cao Pi as
successor and then place Sima Yi and Cao Pi in Xu Chang and wait for Wu to

To get this cg movie, play in the "Divided Land" scenario as either
Cao Cao or Liu Bei and just wait 3 turns.
"A Solemn Oath"
To get this cg movie, play as Liu Bei in the "Yellow Turban Rebellion"
scenario and just wait one turn.
As Liu Bei in the scenario "Battle of Guan Du" you need to do good
deeds until Shui Jing (the old guy) says that the Sleeping Dragon is
nearby, after that do a search (Recruit is what I did) and Zhuge Liang
should be there. Once you choose him to recruit you'll be given the cg
When you first start off on any battle (e.g. Falmes over Chi Bi etc.) Get a decent amount of land, then let Cao Cao conquer the lands above him and the ones sorta below him. All the while work near Nanman and Xi Liang. Then once Cao Cao has just about the whole land, find the area where he is located and switch your strongest officers there. Beat that and the stage should be yours.
