First off, I'm not claiming this is the best possible build for chaos mode (because it probably isn't), merely that it worked well for me and I think it would work well for others too.

- First you need to pick a main character to use. I used Ayane. Her attack speed is beastly and she moves a lot during her combo which results in the enemy being less likely to interrupt it. If she had a weak point, it'd probably be that the animation for her last attack is kinda long and she doesn't move much, so enemies are likely to attack and hit you. Since she is a speed character you can interrupt her combo with a jump at any time, so you can use this to your advantage if you like. I didn't find it necessary though. I ended up mostly just attacking from the horse though, so when I do the JP version I'll probably use someone with a spear. The DW characters with spears/halberds seem to have ridiculous range on a horse. However, Ayane has decent range too, so I didn't feel changing was necessary. Note that just about every character can work with the right build. Level whoever you choose to 99.

- You'll need to pick the other two. In my case I didn't develop them to fight and instead just picked them based on their passive proficiency skills. I used Wang Yi for her boost to officer damage and Kaguya for her passive that gives a chunk of the TTA gauge for every 100 kills. I didn't use TTA much so if I did it again I'd probably use someone else. Max the proficiency of both officers before starting.

- Now you need a weapon. In Ayane's case, her Exquisite Death weapon had a higher attack than her 4 star weapon, so I used it instead. For the mods...

Brilliance - It seems slightly less gamebreaking than Almighty did, but this makes all your mods happen on every attack instead of just charge attacks and a few regular attacks. However, elements and such don't stack (Wind, Ice, etc) and instead each swing seems to have a certain element attached to it. Regardless, this is still a very overpowered ability and will go a long way toward making chaos easier.

Wind - Breaks guard. Anyone who has played a Warriors game on the harder difficulties knows how much of a block whore the AI can be. With this, it is no longer an issue. Combined with Brilliance it essentially makes it impossible for them to block your attacks.

Brawn - Increases damage from your regular (X string) attack. You'll be using this almost exclusively so might as well boost it.

Absorption - I use this in my videos but it doesn't trigger all that often at all, so I'd probably replace it with slay or something. It sounds good in theory, but happens so seldom that it is nigh useless.

Agility - Increases attack speed. Self explanatory.

Courage - Increases damage against officers. Also self-explanatory.

Ice - Freezes an officer in place so they cannot attack or do anything. With this at level 10 you'll freeze most officers in the first hit or two. Needless to say, this makes it very easy to kill even the rage mode officers. It is also very effective against power type officers. Their special ability stops X string attacks from staggering them. Ice makes an otherwise pain in the ass ability useless.

Echo - This one I used because I didn't really have anything else I cared to have. It creates a small explosion that hits enemies near the ones you hit. Effective against groups.

Now max all the stats at level 10 (except for Brilliance and Echo since they don't have levels). Accumulating levels is as easy as buying weapons from the shop that have them and fusing them. Play a stage to refresh the shop and keep stacking up. Brilliance and Echo are special weapon effects that only seem to spawn on hard or chaos, on 5 star difficulty stages or higher. Iron Chef Howie stated : Also, I think I've gotten rare weapon attributes on higher-end scenarios on Normal, but only when playing co-op online. At least, I THINK it was on Normal. Might be worth a try!

- Now, you need a horse. Play the Battle of Fan Castle in chapter 3 with Xu Huang in your team. Kill 1500 dudes and the 1501st will drop an item. Xu Huang doesn't need to get any kills, he just needs to be one of your three team members. Pick it up to claim Red Hare's Saddle. Equip it on one of the characters you aren't using for combat.

- Next, we need to pick items. I used Lion's Fang for the attack boost and Tengu(I don't remember the exact spelling) Armor for it's protection against ranged attacks. I found that I got hit by arrows much more than anything else which is why I used it.

When you select a stage it shows you which difficulties you've beat the stage on by putting clear! below the difficulty. Note that you need to do every story stage, every side stage, and every redux stage along with the stages for the three endings on chaos difficulty for the achievement, which amounts to 70 stages.

As for playing the actual stages, you only really need to do the objectives the game tells you to (generally with a green ping) but I would suggest killing officers when you get the chance. It helps keep your officers alive through morale boosts and thins the herd so your stage-important allies don't die and fail the stage for you. Just run around the stage on Red Hare and attack them from your horse. You'll kill most officers in a combo until the harder stages where you'll need a few extra hits. Enemies seem to have some trouble hitting you when you are on a horse so it works pretty well. When you are hitting an officer or enemy, hold LT and move around to strafe a little while you are hitting them to make yourself harder to hit.

AkkonShinigami mentioned that you get infinite interim saves. You can save during battle and then reload that save if you die, so you don't have to start the stage over again. This would be especially useful in cases where you have to fight a large group or a really strong officer. Abuse it.

Dazeldorffv2 stated that it can be done in co-op. In co-op, you can't use interim saves, but the ability to be in two places at once can make things much easier (say, one person sticks with mission-critical allies and protects them while the other attacks). If you are having trouble doing it alone or know someone who plays, it certainly has benefits.

Here is a link to my WO3 playlist on Youtube. The videos for WO3 are the most recent ones, and you can search for any stages if you are stuck. You might also view a stage or two to get an idea of what I'm saying about running around on a horse. I somehow managed to miss two videos, but I'll have them up and added soon enough.

I was playing pretty recklessly in the videos and only died once throughout the whole thing, on a ten star stage. Which isn't to say I'm super pro because I'm not, simply that with the right setup it is very manageable. I feel it is much easier than doing Chaos difficulty for Dynasty Warriors 6.
