Dynasty Warriors 4 Discussion Thread

Unread postby Lady Wu » Wed Feb 22, 2006 3:56 am

I can't find a DW4 thread, so I'll start a new one.

I just want to know how to get Lu Meng's Lv10 weapon. I was playing through Battle of Mai on hard in free mode, with Lu Meng (and Lv9 weapon). I followed the walkthrough and defeated in turn Wang Fu, top left and bottom left checkpoints in castle, Meng Da, Liao Hua, Liu Feng, Guan Ping, top left checkpoint on map, bottom checkpoint on map, returned to castle and had the gates close on me, defeated Guan Suo, Jian Yong, Jiang Wei, Zhou Cang, Zhang Fei, and finally Guan Yu himself. No weapon. :(

Did I miss something?

Here's an excerpt from Muni's 4th weapon guide:

呂蒙子明 Lu Meng Zi Ming
Weapon = 白虎顎 White Tiger Jaw
Attack = +54
Stage = 麦城の戦い Battle of Mai Castle

Method = Let 廖化 Liao Hua escape to bring back-up troops, enter castle from
the North and defeat 姜維 Jiang Wei's sub-general 王甫 Wan Fu, eliminate
castle top left entry point and bottom left entry point, 廖化 Liao Hua
reappears with back-up troop 劉封 Liu Feng, defeat 廖化 Liao Hua and 劉封
Liu Feng, defeat 関平 Guan Ping, 関羽 Guan Yu decides to abandon castle
event, enemy entry point appears at the top of map, eliminate that map top
entry point before 関羽 Guan Yu reaches it, enemy entry point appears at the
bottom of map, eliminate that map bottom entry point before 関羽 Guan Yu
reaches it, 関羽 Guan Yu full attack message, return to the castle, castle
gates close, enemy second wave back-up troops appear within castle, 張飛
Zhang Fei appearance, defeat all enemy generals on the map except 張飛 Zhang
Fei and 関羽 Guan Yu, defeat 張飛 Zhang Fei → 呂蒙 Lu Meng earns 白虎顎
White Tiger Jaw message.

Muni Comment = You need to defeat all enemy sub-generals also, namely 王甫
Wan Fu, 孟達 Meng Da, and 張苞 Zhang Bao. I started out without defeating
enemy sub-generals, and I did not get the weapon.
Defeat 2 enemy generals within the castle and the 関羽 Guan Yu abandon
castle event will be triggered, so don't defeat extra enemy generals in the
castle against the order listed above. If 姜維 Jiang Wei challenges you to a
duel the first time you meet him, decline.
The castle gates will close if after 関羽 Guan Yu abandons the castle, you
are inside the castle and he isn't.
After the castle gates close, defeat the enemy second wave back-up troop
generals in the castle (関索 Guan Suo and 簡雍 Jian Yong) and the gates will
open again.

Looks like you missed Zhang Bao, or perhaps didn't follow the procedures as strictly as stated. :?

Sigh. I fought Zhang Bao after Zhang Fei. :x

I'm so sick of that level!

But thanks for the info!

Dumb question #2: Do you have to play as the character when you want to get his/her weapon? I.e., can I play as, say, Zhou Yu, at Mai, and get Lu Meng's Lv10 weapon?

You have to play as Lu Meng. You can, however, have a second player help you out - they just can't kill any of the officers necessary.

I have a question: how do you play 2-player mode in DW4 Hyper? Is there an online feature?

I've recently got that PC game, but I think that in 2-player mode you play in splitscreen with one keyboard. Luckily for me, I have two keyboards plugged in my PC. :D
I don't get proud when I finish my arts after all the hard work... until you like them. Why? Because I'm doing it for your sake.

It depends on the character, really. The character in question does have to pick it up, but certain conditions may not have to be fulfilled by them. In fact, many weapons can be obtained by making the character to get the weapon first player, sticking them in a corner, and doing all the footwork with, say, Lü Bu. One thing that tends to require personal involvement in Dynasty Warriors is defeating certain officers.

Thanks everyone. I got that weapon. After many many tries... and on the successful try all 8 of my elite bodyguards died in the first 5 minutes! Fortunately I didn't quit then!

I got a gamepad, so I think I can do 1P on keyboard and 2P on the gamepad. My computer screen is a tad too tiny to play splitscreen on, though. :(

It's incredibly stupid why Koei would make a direct port of DW4, rather than enchance some tidbits here and there. I'd expect at least online 2-player.

Lady Wu, what version of DW4 Hyper do you have? The Japanese, Chinese, or European?
