Trophy Breakdown: 12 15 4 1

Welcome to the newest installment in the Dynasty Warriors series. Barring a couple of trophies, the game can be completed entirely offline. The game itself is not difficult, but you will find yourself spending alot of time grinding for the collection trophies. Playing online will definitely help you through the 5-star missions if you have strong partners, but it is not necessary. There are three factions: Shu, Wei and Wu, and you need to playthrough each campaign. Certain chapters are the same for all 3 factions and you can carry all game progress over when switching factions.

Visit the Gameplay FAQ section as the end of the trophy guide for Material List/Locations and Tips on How to beat certain bosses.


Step 1 - Starting Out:
Choose whichever faction you like and complete the campaign while focusing on collecting the Legends for this faction and levelling your character. Don't focus too much on material grinding yet because you can do that on later factions when you acquire the Serendipity chi, which doubles the amount of drops you receive.

Don't forget to upgrade your city so that stronger items are available and ensure there's enough storehouse space for whatever materials you acquire.

You will unlock these trophies:
: Weaponry K.O, Officer K.O, Budding General, Budding Strategist, Victory Toast, Blacksmith Patron 1, Blacksmith Patron 2, Academy Disciple, Workshop Patron.


Step 2 - Legends/Gaiden/Crossover Missions:
Once you've completed the campaign, I recommend to complete as many of the these missions as possible so that you acquire some useful materials for crafting better items. Equip Luck Orb++ and Serendipity chi if you have it to speed up the process. Completing these quests also contribute towards "Invincible General"


You should have Grand General by now (Level 50 Officer).


Step 3 - 2nd & 3rd Faction:
Time to complete your 2nd & 3rd faction. To keep your game progress when switching factions (characters, items, orbs, chi, quest completion %, officer cards etc), goto the Shrine and select "Change Force" to any of the other factions. You can switch back to previous factions any time by visiting the Shrine again. This way you can keep your Officers from your 1st faction and use them while playing 2nd and 3rd factions campaigns, which will be a breeze.

Chapters 1,2,3 and 6 are the same for all factions and utilize the same maps, so the Legends on these maps will always be there no matter which faction you're playing as

You will unlock these trophies:
: Heretics Suppressed , Traitor Crushed
: Tyranny Sealed, Three Kingdoms Established, Three Kingdoms United - Shu, Three Kingdoms United - Wei, Three Kingdoms United - Wu
: Tyranny Vanquished.


Step 4 - Grinding:
Now we move on to the bulk of the grinding. Finish off all the remaining Legend/Gaiden/Crossover missions that you have left and grinding the materials required to create all of the Chi, Orb and Weapons.

Take this opportunity to complete as many bonus objectives as you can, and win a battle as each selectable officer once which will reward you with treasures. Refer to Treasure Collector in trophy guide for details.

You will unlock these trophies:
: Weapon Collector , Orb Collector , Chi Collector, Legend Collector, Invincible General, Card Collector and Treasure Collector
: Grand Developer and Grand Strategist.


Online: In between all this, you can team up with people to complete the harder missions online as well as all other missions. During this period anyhow, you should try to obtain Online Venture , Victory Banquet , Mutual Exchange and Treasure Collector .

For Treasure Collector, 2 of the treasures are online related, which are Hex Mark Treasure - Win 10 online VS battles, and 4 Gods Statue Treasure - Friend several people online. Use the boosting topic if necessary.

  • Traded Officer with another player for the first time.

    When in an Online City, press to bring up the menu, press to access the second menu and select Officer Trade, choose the person you want to trade with and perform the trade.

  • Completed all Quests.

    I estimate there are around 200+ quests involving Requests, Story Missions, Gaiden Missions, Crossover Missions and High Difficulty Missions. You need to complete each of these, except the High Difficulty Missions (Credits to Rampidzier)

    Of these missions, the Chapter 6 story missions and Gaiden Missions may prove to be the most troublesome. Visit the Gameplay FAQ section below for some hints on how to complete these.

    You can track Quest Completion % by accessing the "Vault" option from the second City Menu.

  • Collected all Weapons.

    This will come very late in your progress as lots of materials are required and the 5-star weapons will require some rare materials that will require some grinding and luck. See Gameplay FAQ section below for material list/locations and hints on how to obtain.

    You can track Weapon Collection % by accessing the "Vault" option from the second City Menu.

  • Collected all Chi Skills.

    This will come very late in your progress as lots of materials are required and the 5-star Chi will require some rare materials that will require some grinding and luck. See Gameplay FAQ section below for material list/locations and hints on how to obtain.

    You can track Chi Collection % by accessing the "Vault" option from the second City Menu.

  • Collected all Orbs.

    This will come very late in your progress as lots of materials are required and the 5-star Orbs will require some rare materials that will require some grinding and luck. See Gameplay FAQ section below for material list/locations and hints on how to obtain.

    You can track Orb Collection % by accessing the "Vault" option from the second City Menu.

  • Collected all Officer Cards.

    This is the most stressful of all the collection trophies. Officers will randomly appear in your city (next to the old man) and you need to talk to them to obtain their Officer Card. The chances and order of Officers appearing in your city is totally random, and sometimes an Officer whom you’ve already met will re-appear in your city.

    I suggest leaving this trophy until you’re nearing the end of your 3rd faction. By then you should have about 60-75% of Officer Cards.

    Start a quest and immediately pause the game and select “Return to City” and check if a new officer has appeared. Rinse and repeat to collect ‘em all.

  • Collected all Legends.

    I've written a detailed description for the location of each of the Musou Characters' Legends, which can be found HERE.

  • Upgraded all City Facilities to maximum.

    To upgrade City Facilities you must have Officer Cards. While in your City, press to access City Menu and select "Upgrade City". Each card upgrades a respective facility at a certain rate, obviously the higher ranked the card, the faster the rate of upgrade.

    You need to fully upgrade each facility to Level 5 (Full Bar). To know if it's fully upgraded, the upgrade progress bar will dissappear once it reaches maximum, and you will receive a rare material from the facility owner when you talk to him/her.

  • Used all Card Tactics.

    Just like budding strategist, you need to use all possible combinations of the officer cards in the pre-battle preparation screen. You can find a list of all possbile combinations HERE.

  • Reached Level 50.

    Just keep playing and level up your character to Level 50. You'll definately hit it when playing the Gaiden missions.
