2. Introduction:
------------------

Hey, this is an FAQ about one of my favourite characters in Warriors Orochi 2,
Da Ji. I have written a few character FAQ's now, and use the same outline, so
I know what I'm doing now. But I'm sure if I make any mistakes, someone will
send me an e-mail telling me what I have done wrong. I will obviously give
credit to them for doing so. Well, I think that is enough of an Introduction.
You're here to read about Da Ji, not to listen to overly long Introductions.

*******************************************************************************
3. Story:
-----------

Orochi, the Serpent King, had brought chaos to the land by merging the worlds
of the Three Kingdoms era of China and the Warring States period of Japan.
Almost a month had passed since the warriors from both worlds had defeated the
Demon King, and everyone believed they could live in peace. However, chaos
still loomed in the strange new world...

There were those who wished to take over the world Orochi created, warriors
who yearned for chaos so they could strengthen their skills in battle, the
remnants of Orochi's followers and an additional new threat...

The time had come again for the warriors to confront this chaos.

5.a) Da Ji: Who is Da Ji?
---------------------------

That is a good question. Da Ji is Orochi's strategist. She is a very
cruel woman who will stop at nothing just to hurt somebody. Da Ji
is a technique type character.

*******************************************************************************
5.b) Da Ji: History
---------------------

Da Ji was real. Da Ji was the beautiful daughter of a noble family named
Su in the state of Yousu. Zhou, the king of Shang, conquered the state
of Su and took Da Ji as his trophy. Da Ji was a very cruel woman, and once
ripped open a pregnant woman's belly, to see what pregnancy looked like from
the inside!

*******************************************************************************
5.c) Da Ji: Overall story involvement
---------------------------------------

Spoilers:
-----------

Da Ji is Orochi's strategist. She is trying to revive Orochi using the very
powerful girl named Himiko. Da Ji protects Himiko at all costs.

*******************************************************************************
5.d) Da Ji: Changes
---------------------

Da Ji is pretty much the same as she was in Warriors Orochi.
They have made some slight changes though...

Her Outfits have changed.
She has a strategy.

That's all.

*******************************************************************************
5.e) Da Ji: Moveset
---------------------

Standing Attacks:
-------------------

X = Skidding to the side as the balls spin around her. ( Moving )

XXXXXXXXX = A series of spinning attacks with a few leaping kicks.

Y = Sharp purple ice comes up from the ground.

XY = One spinning attack, then does a backflip and the balls follow.

XXYYY = Two spinning attacks, then followed by another two spinning
attacks and then at the end the balls float up and circle around her.

XXXY = Two spinning attacks, then followed by a leaping kick, then
followed by jumping through the air forwards and spinning around with
her balls following her.

XXXXY = Two spinning attacks, then followed by two leaping kicks,
then followed by her going down low, then into a handstand, then
pushes herself upwards and into the air with the balls following her,
then lands on her feet.

XXXXXY = Two spinning attacks, then followed by two leaping kicks,
then followed by her throwing the balls downwards, then followed by
her channelling magic through the balls and into two lasers that fly
forwards.

Hold B ( When Musou Gauge is full ) = She floats up into the air throwing fire,
and then does a backflip at the end.

Hold B ( When Musou Gauge is full and health is in the red ) = Exactly the same
apart from at the end she throws down two fires.

AX ( Jump Attack ) = The balls move to the side.

AY ( Jump Charge ) = Does a backflip and propels herself into the enemy. Does
a flip at the end and lands on her feet.

LB = Block ( Not Moving )

LB + Left Analogue Stick = Block ( Moving )

RB = Since Da Ji is a technique type, she can use RB for many things. When an
enemy hits you and you press RB she will counter attack, when you press RB she
will do her special move, when you press XRB - XXXXXRB she will do her normal
charge attacks just much quicker and they will be a lot more powerful. All of
these attacks consume Musou.

Mounted Attacks:
------------------

Y = Attacks with both balls.

XXXXXX = Attacks to her left and right simultaneously.

XY - XXXXXY = Attacks to her left and right simultaneously,
then attacks with both balls.

Hold B ( When Musou Gauge is full ) = The horse charges forwards with a barrier
in front of it and it hits anybody in it's way while Da Ji attacks to her left
and right simultaneously and quickly.

LB = Block ( Not Moving )

LB + Left Analogue Stick = Block ( Moving )

*******************************************************************************
5.f) Da Ji: How to unlock her
-------------------------------

You don't need to unlock Da Ji. She is a starting character for the Orochi
Forces.

*******************************************************************************
5.g) Da Ji: Why use her?
--------------------------

This is a good question! Why should you use Da Ji?
Because I said so... Not really.
Because she's one of the quickest characters in the game, her RB
is very powerful, her moves look cool, she is fun to use, she has
good range with her attacks and with the right attributes on her weapon
she has the potential to become one of the best characters in the game.

Just give her a try!

*******************************************************************************
5.h) Da Ji: Who works best in a team with her?
------------------------------------------------

That's really a matter of opinion on who works best in a team with her...
but if you build up Orochi, then he's good with her...
Hideyoshi is great with his special move, she's already quick as it
is but with his special, you can imagine how quick she would be then.
Or you could just choose whoever works best for you... your favourite
character, or your strongest character, it's entirely up to you!

Oh on a side note... Hideyoshi's voice is still very irritating, but don't let
that stop you from using him. Here are some of the teams that I have used...

Here you go:
--------------

Team 1
--------

Da Ji, Orochi and Hideyoshi

This team is great if you know how to use them right... Hideyoshi's buff works
perfectly on Da Ji, I think she becomes easier to use with his buff on. Orochi
is there because if you get in a tight spot, then he's a good character to have
on your team, plus you can't seperate those two can you? Okay, I lied, you
really can seperate them. But he is still a good character to have in.

Team 2
--------

Da Ji, Kunoichi and Hideyoshi

This team is also great, do the same thing with Hideyoshi as you did
before, and the same with Da Ji, but Kunoichi can get you out of some
tight spots with her RB special.

Team 3
--------

Da Ji, Sun Wukong and Himiko

This team is a very good team. Sun Wukong is a very fast character, and very
handy to have around. Himiko is also quite quick, but her attacks are
brilliant against enemy officers. She is very powerful.

*******************************************************************************
5.i) Da Ji: How to use her
-------------------------------

Da Ji is a very hard character to use if you don't know how to and a lot of her
moves are quite difficult to pull off. If you're not that good with her then
practice. If you can't be bothered to practice, then just use her RB special,
her Y and her XY moves. They are both pretty powerful and easy to pull off.
They are both also good for knocking enemies into the air, and then doing a
huge combo on them.

Also her XXYYY move is a great crowd clearer and is also relatively easy to
pull off.

Her XXXY move is great if you need to get away from enemies in a hurry. It
will send you flying away and knocking all the enemies you meet down to the
floor.

Her XXXXY move is good for hurting the enemies a lot if you have Bolt on your
weapon.

Her XXXXXY move is still no good, as it is hard to control where you want it
to go.

Her XXXXXXXXX move is also another easy one to pull off, but it can be quite
difficult to attack the enemies you want to hurt from time to time, so
practice and you'll get the hang of it.

Her RB specials are great as you can counter attack the opponents, they are
all good to use apart from XXXXXRB. But RB on it's own is very powerful, and I
recommend XXRB.

Her jump attacks are not that great. Her AX move has medium range and a
low - medium attack strength. Her AY move is worse as it does not do much
damage.

*******************************************************************************
5.j) Da Ji: Recommended Weapon Attributes
----------------------------------------------

First off I'm going to give you a list of the attributes, and what they do.

Here you go...
-----------------

Fire: Sets opponent on fire with some charge attacks, good for the earlier
difficulty settings. Also works well with Air.

Ice: Freezes opponents with some charge attacks.

Bolt: Very powerful with some charge attacks and 100% guaranteed to happen.
Very powerful, good for all modes.

Slay: Very powerful, does good damage against generals and can kill peons in
one hit, with some charge attacks.

Brave: Increases your attack strength against generals.

Flash: Breaks through the enemy's guard.

Air: Increases your attack strength when enemies are airborne.

Range: Increases your attack range.

Multi: Produces Clones when doing charge attacks.

Drain: Absorbs enemy's life.

Might: Increases attack strength.

Absorb: Absorbs enemy's musou.

Agility: Increases attack speed, all charge attacks.

Rage: Increases Strength, Decreases Health.

Thats all of them. All of these go up to 10, the attack goes up 20 and
you can have 8 slots. 

Here's the weapons:
---------------------

Weapon 1:
-----------

Bolt
Slay
Flash
Range
Might
Agility
Air
Brave

This weapon is great for killing things. A very quick weapon with that added
advantage of air, which is great as when you use bolt, you can hit enemies into
the air easier.

Weapon 2:
------------

Bolt
Slay
Flash
Range
Might
Agility
Brave
Absorb

This weapon is pretty much the same, just that you can absorb Musou from
enemies and you have no air bonus.

It honestly doesn't matter which weapon you choose, they are both good.

*******************************************************************************
5.k) Da Ji: How to get the 4th weapon
------------------------------------------

To get Da Ji a good 4th weapon do this...

Get her to level 60+
Get her proficiency to level 30+
Get a good 3rd weapon
Now go to the first level of the Wei Story, the battle of Si Province.
It shouldn't matter who you have on your team as you should only need Da Ji
for this battle. Do this level on Chaos Mode. It's very easy and if you do the
level normally, killing all generals in your way, you should get at least 4
weapon boxes. Since this is the first level of a Story, you should have no
problems killing everyhthing in your way.

Now that you have got the 4th weapon, it's time to start using it! Make
sure you have a lot of weapon fusion points. Because you are going to
need them.

Note:
-------

This stage is great for getting everybody's 4th weapons. Just use Da Ji and get
even the weakest character's 4th weapons!

*******************************************************************************
5.l) Da Ji: Name of Weapons
-----------------------------

Here's the names of Da Ji's weapons and their base attacks

Here they are:

*******************************************************************************
5.m) Da Ji: Abilities she unlocks
-----------------------------------

Okay, here I am going to put the skills Da Ji unlocks and how
she unlocks them.

Here is the list:

1. Fortitude - Strengthens defence.

2. Adrenalin - Refills life gauge once combo reaches 10.
Conditions - Defeat 3 officers, while maintaining 30% life gauge
status.

*******************************************************************************
5.n) Da Ji: Strategy
----------------------

Da Ji's strategy is very easy to pull off. Simply defeat any enemy officer,
after 10 minutes of the battle has elapsed. This heals all allied forces.
Very helpful. 

*******************************************************************************
