Getting to 950 in this isn't hard or time consuming.... getting that last 50 points is a grind.

I haven't played DW6 in a while, but here's what I said when I wrote the achievement guide:

"It is not a difficult achievement, it is a time consuming one. Allow me to break it down. There are 41 characters, who need a total of 2009 levels gained for this achievement. Let's assume, that doing the other 950 achievement points you got 4 characters to level 50 and 20 characters to level 20, which knocks 576 off the total needed. This leaves 1433 levels to gain. Let's assume you're using two controllers. Let's assume an average of two levels gained, per character, per scenario. Let's say you can complete a scenario (Loading screens, prep, fighting) every 5 minutes. 12 scenarios an hour, makes 48 levels an hour. Doing the math, this leaves you at just under 30 hours of grinding levels at absolute maximum efficiency. Doing 360 Castle He Fei speed runs in a row is not something one will likely be able to manage without severe psychological trauma."


You've got 1000 in Orochi 2... decide for yourself which sounds worse.

thanks for the info, g315t!
 
i did not look for this in the guide, because i like to do some achievements "unaware" of them in my first playthrough, and reading a guide spoils it a bit :)

but thanks a lot for bringing this information for me. in orochi 2, what takes time is farming proficiency (2730 levels needed), and if remembered it well, i finished everything possible still missing about 2000 levels.
but in wo2 you can gain 5 prof. levels per speed run in the best stage, against 2 exp levels in dw6, well, i think it takes even longer :(

i really like dynasty warriors, but i dont know if i still have the guts to grind the same level countless times again :uzi:

G315T 02-20-2009 01:43 PM

Hell, I wrote the guide and I haven't got the last achievement in Dw6 yet. I plop it in and grind out 20 levels now and again. ;) I'll have it in a few months hehe.

velho lobodomar 02-20-2009 02:09 PM

man, i wish you luck. these koei-grinding achievements are extremely boring and way too time consuming. if they do not change this in future installments i may as well stop buying their games :(

G315T 02-20-2009 04:45 PM

Meh, I don't think the achievement difficulty will effect me buying their games. I love these games, and Bladestorm... 50gs isn't going to kill me. ;)

I don't mind doing speed runs on He Fei Castle, I always look forward to demolishing the Wu main camp and getting a quick thousand kills :/. However I'm coming to the point where I'm running out of characters I enjoy playing the level with (and levelling them up).

Warriors Orochi is a lot of work you have to get 50 proficiency with all the characters just to unlock one stage :/. Then you have to complete ALL stages on ALL difficulties..

Dynasty Warriors levelling of characters in my eyes is easy, its the chaos difficulty target which is the hardest for me :(.

G315T 02-20-2009 06:43 PM

It's not hard, it's just time consuming as all hell... and boring. I've done He Fei a couple hundred times now, and as you say, running out of characters you like playing makes it even harder. There are a lot of CRAP characters to play in DW6 (Wei Yan, anyone?).

Chaos mode is pretty easy with SSX or Yue Ying and a 90+ Power Flash weapon.

I am glad I enjoy these games enough to deal with trying to get the achievements. DW6 is definatly longer than WO2, and I am trying to finish up both but with Empires coming out in June, I am focusing alot on DW6 than Orochi. My goal is 1000 before Empires is out. I would not want to grind a single level though. Ofcourse I am also picky where I dont like playing characters that are too out of place. When I level up Wei Yan, it is in on Shu's side. Though for Dong Zhuo and Zhang Jiao, me and my brother co-op on Lu Bu stages.

Kiutu 02-21-2009 08:59 AM

Did not notice the post before but for Warriors Orochi 2 you do NOT need to get all characters to 50 prof. Just 6 of em, Liu Bei, Sun Quan, Cao Cao, Nobunaga Oda, Ieyasu Tokugawa, and Hideyoshi Toyotomi. Though I kinda want to get all characters to 50 prof just to complete the gallery. I almost have all to lvl 99, well..my lowest character level is about 65, but compared to the 1st, where I had 3 99's, but tons of 1's, I was more even.

That's exactly what I'm doing too hehe... knocking out a few levels here and there to get that last achievement before Empires.

you dont need to have all characters level 50 proficiency, but you need 2730 global proficiency levels, so you have to level a bunch of them to 50 anyway.

ive completed Dynasty Warriors 6, but i havent played WO2 so i was actually wondering the same question (what takes longer to complete). ive asked people that have completed both and most say WO2, but a couple have said DW6. But it doesn't matter cause i love these games!!

velho lobodomar 02-25-2009 06:20 PM

hehehe i love these games too. certainly im going to play dw6 in the future, but if it did not took so long i would play it sooner :)
another thing that i think is a letdown in this game is that only one profile can get achievements while in co-op :(

gundamcreed7 02-18-2012 08:23 AM

i am on 900gs and so close to 1000 all i need is to buy the game and do 1 level and i should have it
