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

Hey, this is a FAQ about one of my favourite characters in Warriors Orochi 2,
No. I have written a couple of 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 No, 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) No: Who is No?
---------------------

Not much to put here. No was a real person. In Samurai Warriors
she was wife to Nobunaga Oda, as she was in Samurai Warriors 2, In Warriors
Orochi she was trying to help her lord Nobunaga but was captured by Orochi.
Now she returns in Warriors Orochi 2. No is a speed type character.

*******************************************************************************
5.b) No: History
------------------

That is a good question. No is the wife of Nobunaga Oda. She
was told to marry him by her father, then to assassinate him.
But her love for him was more than her love for her father, so
instead she killed her father. She has a seething hatred for her sister
in law, Oichi and her sister in law's husband, Nagamasa Azai.

*******************************************************************************
5.c) No: Overall story involvement
-----------------------------------

are part of the Samurai Alliance against Orochi and his raising.

*******************************************************************************
5.f) No: How to unlock her
----------------------------

To unlock No, complete the Samurai Story, Level 6, Battle of Hu Lao Gate and
you will unlock her.

*******************************************************************************
5.g) No: Why use her?
-----------------------

This is a good question! Why should you use No?
Because I said so... Not really.

Because she's one of the best crowd clearers in the game, her RB specials can
be effective when used correctly, her moves look good and deal quite a lot of
damage.

Her attacks are also quite speedy and she has quite a good range with
her weapon attacks.

Her Strategy is also easy to pull off, but very effective.

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) No: Who works best in a team with her?
---------------------------------------------

Thats really a matter of opinion on who works best in a team with her...
Hideyoshi and Kunoichi work very well with her. Hideyoshi especially though
because of his special move. 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
--------

No, Kunoichi and Hideyoshi

A great team for chaos mode, Kunoichi is great with her ability to go invisible
which really does help on chaos mode. Hideyoshi is great for his special too.
Not much else really to say about this team other than they rule.

Team 2
--------

No, Himiko and Hideyoshi

This is also a good team. Hideyoshi is there again for the same reason but
Himiko is a powerful character and is like a god with Hideyoshi's speed buff.
Just have fun with her XXXXXXXX move, especially with her special to make more
of her floating weapons to appear.

Team 3
--------

No, Nobunaga and Ranmaru

This team is also good. Nobunaga's XYYY is devastating to enemy generals, and
Ranmaru is a great crowd clearer if you build him up. Also, you have to have
this team at some point with No as it is a classic.

*******************************************************************************
5.i) No: How to use her
-------------------------

No is an easy character to use. Her moves are very easy to pull off. Her only
problem is her YY move. She throws two bombs, one of which disappears into the
earth, never to be seen again and the other blows up. It has pathetic range and
damage.

Her XYY move can be effective for killing generals.

Her XXYY move can be used effectively on generals or big crowds. It's quite
powerful too so enjoy this move.

Her XXXYY move is one of the moves that I use with No all the time. Her spin
attack is deadly with the right attributes on and has brilliant range.

Her XXXXXXXX combo is quite powerful, but is not the quickest move in the game.
It also doesn't have very good range. Best to use this move on a lone general.

Her RB move is really good, with great range and quite a lot of power, however,
her RB + Left Analogue Stick is not very good at all.

Her jump attacks are pathetic. Very little damage and range. Both of them!

*******************************************************************************
5.j) No: 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 is a very powerful and long ranged weapon. You will be laughing when
facing generals with this weapon. Especially with the air bonus. Just spam
XXXYY for brilliant results.

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 but no air bonus.

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

*******************************************************************************
5.k) No: How to get the 4th weapon
------------------------------------

To get No 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 No 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 everybodies 4th weapons. Just use No and get
even the weakest character's 4th weapons!

*******************************************************************************
5.l) No: Name of Weapons
--------------------------

Here's the names of No's weapons and their base attacks

Here they are:
-----------------

1st Weapon
-------------

Hand Claw
Base Attack = 8

2nd Weapon
-------------

Spiders Sting
Base Attack = 17

3rd Weapon
-------------

Scorpion Tail
Base Attack = 34

4th Weapon
-------------

Delicious Venom

*******************************************************************************
5.m) No: Abilities she unlocks
--------------------------------

Okay, here I am going to put the skills No unlocks, and how she unlocks them.

Here is the list:
-------------------

1. Technique - Increases abilities of Technique Category warriors.
Conditions - Defeat 60 enemies.

2. Impulse - Increases speed.
Conditions - Defeat 70 enemies, including 3 officers.

3. Recover - Refills Life Gauge during battle.
Conditions - Defeat 100 enemies, while maintaining 50% Life Gauge status,
without performing any attack using the Musou Gauge.

That's them all!

*******************************************************************************
5.n) No: Strategy
-------------------

No's strategy is very easy to pull off and is very effective too. Simply kill
any enemy general after ten minutes of the battle have elapsed and all allied
forces will be healed.

*******************************************************************************
6. FAQ:
