No, I’m not even a little bit sorry for that title. Because it’s finally time for the final campaign of Warriors Orochi!
Yes, after successfully clearing the Samurai, Wu and Shu campaigns, it’s finally time to tackle the Wei’s challenges — beginning with Cao Pi apparently in the service of the snake god himself. But, as anyone who has ever played a Warriors game will attest, anyone with “Cao” in their name is usually up to something… I wonder what?
Time to hack and slash our way to the truth!
While the majority of the Warriors Orochi cast is drawn from the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series — at least in its first installment — there are a few new characters in the mix, too.
Besides Orochi himself, who we actually don’t see all that much until each faction’s respective final (and secret) missions, probably the most prominent and persistent of these new characters is Da Ji.
But who is this mysterious and devilish woman with a penchant for deception? Where did she come from? And what’s with the weird feet?

You thought we were done with the Shu campaign, but it was I, Lu Bu– hold on, I’m getting confused somewhere, I think.
Anyway, yes, as with all the other campaigns, the Shu missions play host to a “Chapter 8-X” which allows you to square up against Orochi once again… and perhaps give a certain little overconfident jackass with a silly hat the kicking he so deserves.
Let us take to the field once again, warriors, and this time, we shall be the ones to pursue Lu Bu!
Well, the Shu warriors have finally reached the end of their journey: Koshi Castle, home of the dreaded Orochi.
This is what it all comes down to! Everything the team has been fighting for culminates in this final battle. And perhaps… just perhaps, if they’re lucky, they’ll finally be reunited with Liu Bei after a very long journey!
Although if you’re accustomed to how Liu Bei looks in more recent Warriors installments, be ready for a bit of a surprise!
We’re closing in on the end of the Shu campaign of Warriors Orochi now, with only two more side missions and one more story mission to go.
Today, Zhurong and friends decide to turn their attention to the peasants who are suffering under the yoke of Orochi’s oppression. She helps them escape in her own inimitable fashion — and is very keen to make sure we’re aware of her accomplishments at the conclusion of the battle.
I’m going to be sorry to leave this particular gang of misfits behind — they’ve been a lot of fun to play as!
Orochi’s armies are growing in strength in an attempt to counter the growing confidence of the Shu forces.
Zhao Yun can practically smell his master Liu Bei now — not literally, ’cause that’d be weird — and his friends are relieved to know that victory is within sight.
There are still a few challenges left to overcome, though… and as we’ve seen numerous times up until now, complacency can be a Warrior’s worst enemy!
Rorona’s trials and tribulations will be coming to an end within the next episode or so, but in the meantime there’s still plenty to be getting on with!
Specifically, as we’re getting towards the end of the game, I wanted to look at making some top-notch healing items. One of the best things you can make is an Elixir with the “Pepped Up” effect — this means that whenever Rorona’s HP drops below 50%, it automatically activates, saving you a turn and keeping your party up and running.
It’s a bit of a struggle and the final product isn’t the best it could be, but it’s not bad for a first attempt…
