It's the bodyguard manual. Pretty useless really but I get the need to have all items. kongming.net may have a FAQ on this. Here (it's under the red items category):

Can we just talk about how this was one of the most fun and entertaining DW's ever? (My bad, THE most) I think the VA's were something pretty, erm, spectacular. Also the interchangeable cut-scenes could be pretty hilarious.

The Wu opening for Fan Castle:

Lu Meng: "We must fight Guan Yu!"

Guan Yu: "Hah, I am my own opponent? This will be difficult!"

or

The thwarting Zhang Liang scene on the YTR stage:

Zhang Jiao: "I don't belieeeeve in magic ONWARDDDD"
(On the same note, Zhang Liang had some pretty awesome jazz hands going on)

Grew up playing 3, so it has ridonculous amounts of nostalgia for me. 5 is pretty much all the awesomeness of 3, with upgrades, some new characters, and a crap ton of stages. However, due to the overwhelming nostalgia, I find I usually enjoy 3 more.

Never played any of the XL versions of the games, always went straight vanilla. I doubt I'll ever change that...

A quick question for anyone with the knowledge.

Does the defense stat also contribute to bow defense?

Edit: A second part of the question: If it does contribute, can bow defense only go as high as normal defense? For example, if I have a full stat Huang Zhong with fourth weapon (grants defense and bow defense), would I actually gain any more bow defense from throwing on a shell armor?

I doubt anyone will end up reading this, but what the heck, right?

After hours and hours of ardor and sweat, I finally managed to achieve the impossible. I got my man He Jin 1000 KOs on YTR. Incidentally, I also got myself 1000 KOs in the same match. Dream Team, amirite?

My life is complete.

I would upload some terrible quality pics, but I can't figure out how to upload one from my computer rather than URL.

You have too much spare time :lol:

That is one hell of an achievement though, well done!

I prefer to call it "determination." If only I could apply equal vigor to my studies...
