Levelling Up Weapons
One of the best ways to level up weapons quickly is to play Yellow Turban Rebellion from the Yellow Turban side. (This means completing Zhang Jiao's Musou Mode) In this map, you will face a large amount of enemy generals from virtually every kingdom. If you play on hard mode you can easily level up your weapon by 4-6 levels in one go, particularly if you have a low level weapon.

Another way to do this is to do Jian Ye (where you fight the whole Wu Kingdom) and keep killing the leaders as they come to you (except Sun Jian) because they will re-appear later until you kill Sun Jian. Then one of his relatives will assmue command.
Life Up +10 !!!
If you play a level long enough there would be a message : "A warrior has joined the enemy",it's mostly a very strong or strong officer and when you kill him he will leave a package -> life up +10
Life+10 evry time easy health
Go to the battle of chi bi as liu bei's forces and on the same boat as CAO CAO in the north west corner of it, there are 4 giant jars, 1 of which has a life up +10 in it, then kill cao cao to finish it.
