Not necessarily. After a long and fairly even Battle of Liang with a completely fresh Ma Chao, no items, I had about 1100 kills. I simply stayed with my troops and fought every peon that came.

Taking out the bases aren't required, but it makes it so there isn't anything in your way when you're going after the 2nd general.

When I played DW3, I found it easy to get 1000 kills. But during ym play of DW4, I was lucky to scratch 400 mark. What I wanna know is; is it easy to get a good number of kills in this one?"

I find it somewhat hard to NOT get 400+ KO's in a level. Although I don't get 1000+ KO's that often, I've gotten it a few times without really trying.... plus you can easily gate in this game. With Zhou Yu I got around 150 KO's in about 2-4 minutes sitting beside a gate massacres those poor peons that came before me.

As for the shdow harness, if you don't take the bases out, chances are that your allies will start to attack them, and when the enemy reineforcments come they'll be delayed right beside the base instead of going closer to the middle, let's face it 3-5 seconds can make a major difference when you're trying to get this item.

I should correct myself and say that taking out the 2 bases in the center aren't required.

With ling Tong I didn't leave a level until I had 1500 kills.
I really like the new characters so far, they're very different. Cao Pi was excellent as well. Not as sure about Zhang Fei's daughter, she's okay but not as good as the other two.

I would definitley say though that this game is designed for large kill numbers. 1000 ko's is just warming up.

I am glad I didn't try it with my friend yet because I would have been in the same boat as sang :oops:

I think Xing Cai is alright, but I'm not a huge fan of her voice (or Sima Yi's. Otherwise, the voices fit pretty well). Picky I know. But I think she makes a decent new character, even in comparison to the others.

Cao Pi would be my favorite of them though.

Pang De I find to be the best at least until I get Zuo Ci :wink:, but Xing Cai is great too... I do like her moveset, I remember seeing the video Dio made of her and thought that she seemed like she was attacking rather slow, now that I've played her I find that her attack speed is pretty good and I most likely thought that just becuase I was still comparing her to Nu Wa.

EDIT: Well I just got Zheng He's 4th weapon. I'm sure I know exactly what went wrong for whoever needed help getting it.

1. Beat Gao Xiang and Wang Ping
2. Wait....
3. ... keep waiting... pass time by killing all who get in your way
4. Ma Su will eventually say that he's going to retreat and he does, leaving the mountain and coming down the rope bridge, kill him and you'll get the weapon.

Hope it works for ya :D
