[top]Tips & Strategies

This platinum is very time consuming and will ultimately take some time to complete. If you are looking for an easy platinum this is definitely not the game for you.

If possible you may want to platinum Dynasty Warriors 7 before you start Xtreme Legends so you can import your save data in so you ultimately have less work to do when coming in. Also take note that you can't earn trophies from Dynasty Warriors 7 on Xtreme Legends and if you want the platinum I suggest holding off on Xtreme Legends til you complete the original.

For initally making your way through Xtreme Legends you'll want to use a character that is powerful to make it through Chaos difficulty as well as surviving Nightmare difficulty. If you imported your data you'll be set for this already and can go straight through. However those that don't have save data to import in you'll find the game to be much more time consuming since you have to build up a character from scratch and you may not be able to play Chaos difficulty right off the bat with a fresh character.

Speed & Power Weapons
Within Xtreme Legends you'll notice two things with weapons that weren't available in 7 and they are called Speed and Power weapons. Each weapon type have their own benefits and titles to make them stronger. Speed weapons when placed with a character will often get bonuses in their titles that within every attack they will gain health back; which is extremely useful for nightmare difficulty. Power weapons don't have any of these benefits besides their sheer amount of damage they output so they won't be as immortal as someone with a speed weapon that heals them every attack.

Easy Method For Gathering Weapons and Titles
This is hands down the easiest way to gather the Nightmare weapons as well as any of the harder titles. Most characters have titles that when they have a speed weapon equipped will heal with every attack. With this setup and using the Red Hare you will be practically untouchable with the exception of enemy weapons like Arbalests and Ballistas which you will still need to guard against so it doesn't wipe out your health.

What to use for this method
  • Weapons: Thunder element flute and any Wind element weapon as secondary.
  • Weapon Seals: Double Element x2, Elemental Attack Up x2, Officer Assassin x2, Horsemanship, Projectile Resistance, Combat Resistance.
  • Guardian Animal: Red Hare
  • Plan of attack: While riding the Red Hare press R1 to strafe and continuously press triangle with the flute.


[top]Cheats, Glitches, & Exploits

To my knowledge there are no game breaking glitches, exploits, or cheat codes of any kind in the game.


[top]Roadmap

There is no one true way to go about completing the platinum and this is nothing but an example to show one road that you could possibly take.

1. Start Legend Mode
If you brought in your data in from Dynasty Warriors 7 you can immediately start playing in Chaos difficulty. Your goal is the complete all of the stages in Chaos difficulty so you can unlock Nightmare difficulty. At the same time you should also aim to get all of the secret weapons for Chaos difficulty. While on the side you should also be aiming to get titles, devotion lines, and at least one character maxed out.

Here are the trophies you should get for going through all the stages on Chaos while doing the above. (in XMB order)

2. Complete Challenge Mode
This can always be done during Legend Mode at any time and these are the trophies you can get from there.
Rampage
Bridge Melee
Speed Run
Arena
Champion
King of the Hill
First Past the Post
Gladiator

3. Clean Up
You may as well clean up the rest of the easier trophies before continuing onto the final grind into the game. These should be the ones that should be left over.
Home Decorator
Siege Weapon Master


4. Continue Legend Mode
This is where you'll be spending most of your time for the platinum. You will have to get the rest of the weapons on Nightmare difficulty, hear all of the devotion lines from your adjutants, and get all the top titles for every character in the game. Once that is over you have you finish off getting clearing 1000 stages.

When that is done you should have these trophies done as well as the platinum.

[top]Trophies

[top]
True Warrior of the Three Kingdoms
Obtained all trophies.

Complete all other trophies to unlock the platinum.

[top]
Army of One
Defeated 1000 enemies in one Legend Mode battle.

This trophy should come very naturally during your game as long as you are making sure to kill enemy soldiers and officers along the way instead of going straight for the commanders.

[top]
Unrivaled Warrior
Defeated 3000 enemies in one Legend Mode battle.

There are no stages in Legend Mode that just have 3,000 enemies that you can kill just on your way towards the enemy commander. The easiest way I've found is to look for stages with infinite soldier spawn points. One place I know you can get infinite spawns is on the Battle of Mt.Qi. In the top right most corner of the map there is a spawn point on the edge of the east side of the wall and it's in the section south of the ballistas. It spawns about 40 soldiers about every 10 seconds. There are earlier stages that it can be done with and can even be done on stages with Base Captains in which you have to make sure you don't kill the captain so the soldiers keep coming in waves from the gate. However the amount of soldiers coming out of the gates aren't quite as many from the Mt. Qi stage spawn gate, and there is no captain you have to worry about accidentally killing and sealing the gate off.

[top]
Up for a Challenge
Visited the castle town for the first time in Legend Mode.

This trophy is story related and cannot be missed.

When you first start Legend Mode this will pop up immediately. No work involved.

[top]
Savvy Politician
The Counselor began work in Legend Mode.

This trophy is story related and cannot be missed.

This will be the first person to work in your town and you can change your adjutants from here. He'll be ready after completing a couple stages in Legend Mode.

[top]
Always Thinking
The Strategist appeared in Legend Mode.

This trophy is story related and cannot be missed.

The strategist will be the second to appear. However he appears before he is actually ready to work, but that gives you a general idea of how soon he'll show up. Which should be before or when you complete the last stage in the first page of stages in Legend Mode. You can buy manuals from him that can help you max out the stats of your characters.

[top]
Trader
The Merchant began trading in Legend Mode.

This trophy is story related and cannot be missed.

The Merchant will be the third to appear and just like the strategist will appear before he is ready to set sail to trade. He should be ready around when you complete the stages to around the end of the second page of stages. From the Merchant you will be able to receive a few different things from his trips and those are weapons, treasure, and guardian animals.

[top]
Master Trader
Obtained all trade goods in Legend Mode.

Once the Merchant is available you will be able to send him to different provinces. Each province has it's own set of items that the merchant may bring back upon each trip; which is one completed stage. There are three types of things that the Merchant will bring back which are weapons, treasure, and guardian animals. The Merchant will bring back only one item at a time and seems to bring them back in order and he also won't always bring back something new each time. Once you have received every item from the merchant the trophy will unlock.

Note: If you have all the guardian animals from the first game they will already be unlocked and he won't try to bring those back.

[top]
Imperial Protector
Welcomed the Emperor to the castle in Legend Mode.

This trophy is story related and cannot be missed.

Once you complete the Battle of Mt.Qi your adjutant will tell you that the Emperor will be coming soon. After you complete one stage afterward the Emperor will appear in your town. After he visits in town you'll now be able to complete title ranks 6 through 8 and he'll come to reward you with the title anytime you complete those rank titles.

[top]
Beloved Ruler
Town atmosphere became Friendly in Legend Mode.

You will get this the first time your town atmosphere changes to Friendly. Just keep using one adjutant til you get this. Some adjutants take longer than others to switch to friendly and it's purely random.

[top]

[top]
Worshipped by All
Heard all characters' devotion lines in Legend Mode.

Devotion lines are when you speak to your adjutant in Legend Mode. Each character will have three different lines that you must hear in order to get this trophy. Each time your town changes it's atmosphere from either Carefree, Orderly, and Friendly; speak to your adjutant. Once you have heard all the lines from each atmosphere you can now change your adjutant and repeat the same steps til you've done it for all the characters in the game. Some adjutants can randomly take longer than others to reach friendly status and there isn't much you can do about it but just keep playing and eventually they will switch. Once you complete Legend Mode you will be able to check the gallery for each characters devotion lines and they will be under the their voice tab when it's been completed.

Note: Remember to save after hearing your adjutant. If you exit the game without saving it won't count. You'll have to hear it again for it to count and if you forget to listen to it again and switch them out you'll have to get them back to the status that you need.

[top]
Decorated Officer
Awarded first Title.

This trophy is story related and cannot be missed.

This will unlock after you complete a couple stages in Legend mode automatically.

[top]
Rising Dragon
Awarded high-ranking Title for one character.

Awarded when you complete your 6th title with any character. All 6th rank titles must be done on Hard or higher difficulty. Once the emperor visits your town for the first time you'll be able to finally complete these for the first time.

[top]
War Hero
Awarded top Title for one character.

Awarded when you complete the final title with any character. Every final title must be done on Nightmare difficulty. The difficulty of the last title depends on what character it is, but a typical example of a top title is defeating 5 officers in 5 minutes while maintaining 50% health. The easiest way to do this is with are characters equipped with speed weapons and have previously earned titles that heal them every time they attack with their weapon.

[top]
Anarchist
Acquired first Secret Weapon at Chaos difficulty level.

See Master of Chaos for details.

[top]
Breaker of Bedlam
Acquired half of all Secret Weapons at Chaos difficulty level.

See Master of Chaos for details.

[top]
Master of Chaos
Acquired all Secret Weapons at Chaos difficulty level.

You must get all of the secret weapons in Chaos difficulty in Legend Mode. Each stage has a requirement that you must fulfill in order to get the weapon. Not all stages have one and some stages are harder than others. I suggest doing this while you aim to complete all the levels on Chaos difficulty for the first time. You can see the secret weapon requirements before you start the battle and also from the start menu if you've already started a battle.

See Tips & Strategies at the top of this guide for an easy tip for getting the chaos weapons.

[top]
Sleepwalker
Acquired first Secret Weapon at Nightmare difficulty level.

See Legendary Warrior for details.

[top]
Survivor
Acquired half of all Secret Weapons at Nightmare difficulty level.

See Legendary Warrior for details.

[top]
Legendary Warrior
Acquired all Secret Weapons at Nightmare difficulty level.

You must get all of the secret weapons in Nightmare difficulty in Legend Mode. Each stage has a requirement that you must fulfill in order to get the weapon. Not all stages have one and some stages are harder than others. These will no doubt be the hardest weapons to try to complete as you go for the platinum. Nightmare difficulty doesn't unlock until you complete all stages on Chaos difficulty.

Some key things to consider
  • Work fast - Don't kill every single enemy soldier on the way. Lingering for too long in one area may hinder you when all your ally officers die.
  • Play as the commander - Not all stages allows you to be one, but playing as the commander may save you some grief so you don't need to worry about the stage suddenly ending if they die.
  • Play with a partner - Playing with a friend or someone online can cut the work in half and make things move smoother when going for these weapon requirements.
  • Change weapon seals - By now if you are still playing with a maxed out character with +attack, hp, or defense seals you need to change them. Once you max out a character those seals don't stack anymore and it's best to change it to something else like combat resistance, attack range up, elemental attack up, and etc.


See Tips & Strategies at the top of this guide for an easy tip for getting the nightmare weapons.

[top]
Weapons Master
Acquired all weapons available in Legend Mode.

For this trophy you must have all of the weapons in the game. That means all the secret weapons from Chaos and Nightmare difficulty, weapons from the weapons dealer, and weapons from the merchant. If you already have all the weapons from the original game then you already have a good part of this trophy done and you'll only need the new weapons in the game which mainly are the secret weapons, the ones from the weapons dealer, and merchant. If you don't have the older weapons you can just buy them from the weapon dealer.

Some of the weapons from the dealer you can't just outright buy and require someone with smithing. There are a few characters that have smithing but I always use Zhuge Liang. He's one of the few characters you use in story mode of Dynasty Warriors 7 that has this skill. You should already have a decent amount of skill points for him if you brought your save file over so you can just immediately give him the skill. Two other characters have the Smithing skill, which are Lu Meng and Guo Huai.

[top]
Connoisseur
Viewed all events available in Legend Mode.

To get this trophy you must have seen all the events within Legend Mode. Once you complete every stage once this should unlock. To check if you are missing anything you can check within the gallery and it'll give a percentage done and a ??? for ones that are missing.

[top]
Classicist
Cleared all Classic stages in Legend Mode.

This unlocks when you complete every stage that was from a previous Dynasty Warriors game. It will tell you in the battle description if it was from an older game.

[top]
Legendary Hero
Cleared all Legendary Hero stages in Legend Mode.

This unlocks when you complete every stage that tells a certain character's story. They are the ones that have an image of a character in the right hand corner on stage selection.

[top]
Home Decorator
Obtained wallpapers 1 and 2 for Pang De, Wang Yi and Guo Jia.

To get this trophy you must play with Wang Yi, Guo Jia, and Pang De in Legend Mode. You will need to at least play with them once on any difficulty to get one of the wallpapers. While you do that you may as well complete their second titles which ask you to kill 3 officers while maintaining 30% health. Once that is done for all three characters the trophy will pop.

[top]
Millionaire
Obtained a total of more than 1 million gold over the course of the game.

You will get this along the way as you go for other trophies and even before you finish all the stages on Chaos difficulty. There is no need to grind this trophy since it comes pretty quick.

[top]
Battle-hardened Veteran
Cleared stages over 1000 times.

Unfortunately, there is no true easy way to get this trophy. This will more than likely be the last trophy that stands between you and the platinum. If you want to purely grind a stage over and over a quick stage for that is "Guan Yu's Escape - Cao Cao's side" and all you have to do is run to Guan Yu and kill him. It takes only a matter of minutes to complete.

[top]
Perfection
Maxed out the growth parameters of a single character.

To get this trophy you will need to at least have the strategist unlocked in your town. Pick your character of choice and visit the strategist and keep buying manuals til you completely max out that character. When your town's atmosphere is carefree the manuals will be a lot cheaper to buy. If you don't want to buy manuals you can always get stat boosting items from when you kill an officer but of course that will take much longer to max out a character.

[top]
Into Chaos
Cleared a Legend Mode scenario at the Chaos difficulty level.

This will unlock as soon as you complete one stage in Legend Mode on Chaos difficulty. This should be easy if you've imported all your characters over from Dynasty Warriors 7. This would be much harder if you are starting off fresh and you may possibly want to play lower difficulties to build up a couple characters before starting on Chaos difficulty.

[top]
The Nightmare Begins
Cleared a Legend Mode scenario at the Nightmare difficulty level.

This will unlock as soon as you complete one stage in Legend Mode on Nightmare difficulty. Nightmare difficulty doesn't unlock til you complete every stage in Legend Mode on Chaos difficulty. As for going through on Nightmare difficulty I suggest playing through with a strong character along with some of the secret weapons you may have unlocked going through Chaos difficulty.

[top]
Siege Weapon Master
Defeated 1000 enemies using a siege weapon.

Easiest way to get this trophy is on the Battle of Taoyang stage and is the second to last stage in Legend Mode. In this stage you have not one but two chances to kill soldiers for the trophy. First you come across a pyrocannon in the room you destroy three pyrocannons, just keep riding it around til the enemies destroy it. Next you'll find a ballista in the next area after opening a gate. Once you kill the officer by the Ballista you can run over to it and start shooting all the enemies within reach with it. The most kills I've gotten in one go on this stage was about 500 give or take. You don't have to get 1000 kills in one stage so you can just do this stage a couple times on whatever difficulty you wish and that's it.

[top]
Black Belt
Executed a combo involving Normal, Strong, EX, and Musou 1 Attacks and a Weapon Switch.

To get this trophy you must have a combination of normal, strong, EX and musou attacks all in one combo. This can be done with any character but some are easier to do then others. Basically what you need to do is one EX attack, one weapon switch, and one musou attack in one combo. If the combo stops counting at any point during this combo you will have to try again. I've noticed musou attacks tend to break the combo fast especially if it tends to have a slow beginning which in that case you may want to try putting the musou attack first. It doesn't matter what order the attacks are in but they have to be in the combo somewhere.

Example: The character I used for this was Guo Jia. He has a very useful musou attack that sucks every enemy soldier into one centralized spot so you can just attack away. I used him in the Rampage challenge which has a lot of enemy soldiers which you can herd together and unleash the combo on.
The combo string I used with Guo Jia was this;
which translates as; Musou Attack, EX Attack, and Weapon Switch.

[top]
Martial Artist
Achieved 5 consecutive growth item power-ups by executing combos.

For this trophy you have to kill five officers in a row and not together at once by using a combo. All you have to do is kill an officer with a combo of more than 8 and pick up the item they drop. When you kill an officer with a combo of 8 or higher the item they drop gets stronger and gets even stronger for longer combos. Make sure that when you kill the officer that the combo counter is showing otherwise it did not count. Combos are basically a string of normal (square) attacks followed by a strong attacks (triangle). Also this can be achieved with musou attacks as well.

[top]
Rampage
Played Rampage in Challenge Mode.

From the main menu enter Challenge Mode and complete the Rampage challenge once to unlock. Your goal in the Rampage challenge will be to defeat as many enemies as you possibly can before time runs out or you run out of health. The challenge will complete once all your health depletes to zero or time runs out.

[top]
Bridge Melee
Played Bridge Melee in Challenge Mode.

From the main menu enter Challenge Mode and complete the Bridge Melee challenge once to unlock. Your goal in the Bridge Melee challenge will be to knock off all of the enemies from the platform without falling off yourself. The challenge will complete when either all your health depletes or you fall off the platform.

[top]
Speed Run
Played Speed Run in Challenge Mode.

From the main menu enter Challenge Mode and complete the Speed Run challenge once to unlock. Your goal in the Speed Run challenge is to race through the stage from one end to the other in the fastest time possible. The challenge will end only when you make it to the end of the stage. Take your time and familiarize yourself with the layout and the officers guarding the gates since this will help you when you go for the First Past the Post trophy.

See the First Past the Post for more tips.

[top]
Arena
Played Arena in Challenge Mode.

From the main menu enter Challenge Mode and complete the Arena challenge once to unlock. Your goal in the Arena challenge will be to defeat as many officers as you possibly can before you run out of health. Once you run out of health the challenge will end.

[top]
Champion
Attained first place in the rankings for Rampage in Challenge Mode.

To get first place in the Rampage challenge you must beat 2500 kills playing alone. I suggest playing as a character that you are used to or a character with a weapon with a fairly long range so you don't get hit as much since you'll get crowded very easily. Next step is to try to save your musou attacks up til Lu Bu appears. When he appears go straight for him and take him down in what ever manner you deem so, and when he is down a ton of soldiers will appear as well as a healing item next to where Lu Bu spawned. Your goal will be to take Lu Bu down 3-4 times so you can beat the 2500 kills goal.

Example: I used Sima Shi with his EX weapon the Rapier, and Crescent Blade. I mainly made use with the crescent blade since it can control a crowd well and it has the added feature where if you get knocked into the air you can dive backwards to get away quickly. As for dealing with Lu Bu I would save up two musou charges and unload them on him in succession, but it isn't quite enough to down him so I kill more soldiers to fill it back up in a matter of seconds and finish Lu Bu off.

[top]
King of the Hill
Attained first place in the rankings for Bridge Melee in Challenge Mode.

To get first place in the Bridge Melee challenge you must knock off more than 1000 soldiers from the platform. The key here is to find weapons and a character with a musou attack that will allow you to be able to knock the soldiers off without falling off yourself. To beat the time limit you will need to beat Lu Bu every time he appears and the best way is knocking him off is with a character's musou attack. Once he is off the platform a bunch of enemies will spawn as well as a health item.

Example: I used Sima Shi with his EX weapon the Rapier, and the War Fan as secondary. All I did the entire time was weapon switch back and forth using the button. Switching to the war fan will leave a gust of wind picking up all the soldiers nearby, and switching to rapier is a straight thrust attack that will launch the soldiers off the platform. As for dealing with Lu Bu I just used Shi's normal ground musou attack which launches enemies into the air and scatters them to the sides. Typically Lu Bu would just slide off the platform whenever I did this.

[top]
First Past the Post
Attained first place in the rankings for Speed Run in Challenge Mode.

To get first place in the Speed Run challenge you must be quicker than 3 minutes. Use a character with an EX attack pattern that you are familiar with as using EX attacks will give you speed bonuses. However I'm not sure the bonus works for all weapon types as it didn't activate when I tried using Lu Bu's EX attack so this may be only towards speed weapons as it works with Sima Shi's EX attack. You can find your character's EX attack pattern by pressing start in battle, and it must be executed with their original main weapon type. Next always go straight for the person guarding the gates as this is what will ultimately progress you through the level. If possible also try to avoid Lu Bu since he always seems to cause more damage than good, not to mention slow you down.

Of course if you just want to get this over with and done the cheap way, just use Lu Bu.

[top]
Gladiator
Attained first place in the rankings for Arena in Challenge Mode.

To get first place in the Arena challenge you must defeat more than 60 enemies. There is not much to suggest here but to use a character you are familiar with and attempt to go from there. As you get higher in your kill total the challenge becomes more difficult since you have to balance fighting 4-5 enemies by the time you reach the 60 mark. Also if your health gets into the red you can always take advantage of that your musou gauge charges up. Just keep running around til it fills and hit them with a musou, run back to safety, and repeat. There are no health items in the arena so you need to be really careful about your health.

[top]
Best of the Best
Attained first place in the rankings for all Challenge Mode courses.

Unlocked when you place first in all of the challenges in Challenge Mode. This includes Rampage, Bridge Melee, Speed Run, and Arena. You only have to beat the preset scores that are in the game by Koei and not against other players online scores.
