Ok so, this is not just a guide on how to acquire all achievements, but it's the methods I used, which helped me do everything in the minimum amount of time possible. But of course, I didn't realise these time saving methods, so if anyone uses this advice i'm sure they could knock a good few hours off my 1000 point time.
First and foremost, do all 4 stories first. You can grind seals and max out a fair few characters, not to mention get some dollar for buying weapons and whatnot. I'm sure this goes without saying. But anyway, the main point of this guide is to try and help you spend less time grinding in conquest mode, and what grinding has to be done, kept to a minimum.

Here's the tldr version:
Always do legendary battles in 2 player.
Grind money and bonds at 'The Conflict at Shouchun' (Top left of the map, the hex above Zhang He's legendary battles).

But seriously, it's far better to read the entire thing as I have so much to say it's hard to know when exactly to mention things. I'll just quickly discuss each area you'll be grinding in detail then give you a roadmap if you like of the order I did things to make sure there were no wasted battles.

To start with, I know it might be hard, but hold back on getting 5 men and female characters to max bond. I know the gamerscore feels nice when it pops, but it will have some impact on how long you're sat there grinding bonds for. Infact leave it as long as possible to max any characters, the most efficient and ideal scenario is to have every single officer on 90% bond at the same time. That's because when you randomly get a defense battle or whatever, you don't want the guy who's about to start brown nosing you to be someone you've already maxed bond for. When I properly started grinding bonds, I had over 75% of Wu at max... that was not fun. Obviously, have Congeniality on both weapons at all times.

This isn't much of an issue. You will DEFINITELY have enough money by the time you get everything else to acquire all the weapons. And besides, the more money you have, the less seals you have to learn by using the weapons. My honest advice is to learn 'X Master' on any weapons with 2 slots, at the blacksmith. They're a ballache to use for reasons I will elaborate on in a bit. Also, try to have every seal available to you learnt by the end of the 4 stories. The quicker you can get every seal on the game learnt, the more time you can spend grinding using your weapon of choice, and less time with the bloody claws. Also, as soon as possible get the weapon Dragon Breath. It's from the Flute weapon battle. It's by far the earliest weapon I came across with 5 slots. Mega useful. Later on when you have smithing prioritize the "Royal Halberd" and the "Qinggang Sword" (Rapier). This is just for the setup I used though, however i'm sure we all agree that the Halberd is the quickest and most efficient weapon to kill things. Also, the Qinggang Sword has the same element as the Halberd, and 5 slots.

Skill Points
This is really not as bad as it seems. I should have got this ages before bonds and fame, but, I somehow missed one skill on Dong Zhuo and didn't notice. Essentially, just make sure you do every legendary battle in 2 player, even if one of them is idle. Also, if you really want to, and get it out of the way, any level that says "No Sworn Allies" rag a 2nd player on those too. Also, obviously, have Skill Points up on both weapons at all times.

This was my next to last achievement, because of having to play on beginner a lot, believe me when I say it's not that bad if you know when you can sneak a cheeky battle up to normal.

Ok basic overview of how long this took me...
Weapons Achievement - 355 battles
Max out all Characters (Except for the one skill I missed) - 362 battles
Max Fame - 380 battles
Max bonds - 382 battles
Believe me, this was with me prioritising Bonds from early on.

OK, now i've rambled on, here's how I actually tackled Conquest Mode.
Here's a very useful link which tells you which reinforcements you can get from each province, etc. http://koei.wikia.com/wiki/Dynasty_Warriors_7/Conquest_Mode
Do levels as they come on normal with your first few characters, why not. They're low level stages.
Try to never do a stage that allows sworn allies unless you hire reinforcements from the merchant. As levels that don't allow sworn allies don't allow reinforcements. You may aswell get the forbidding levels out of the way while you don't have reinforcements, and before the merchant reappears again. Sworn allies and reinforcements are also not allowed EVER in 2 player mode, which leads me to my next point.

Legendary battles should ALWAYS be done in 2 player mode. Why not? Even if a character is maxed from story mode, you can still pick up skill points for someone. Plus, you can't develop bonds in legendary battles so it's the perfect place to grind skill points without it hampering your bonds, which are always a higher priority. Also, make sure you don't run out of characters you haven't maxed by not unlocking some from legendary battles.

Work your way all over the map using this method. Play on beginner after you max one or two characters as the levels will get harder and you don't really wanna have to pla ya level more than once. Also, change your sworn ally when their bar gets to about half full. You don't wanna have anyone maxed, and then waste them popping up for a bond boost. If you get to the point where there are no new levels available that allow sworn allies, then I recommend starting to play "The Conflict at Shouchun". Every 3 battles. You'll get a nice cash boost, and an opportunity to get 4 individual officers bond up.

So when the entire map is completed, and you still need to grind a hell of a load, here was my setup and what I did.
Weapon 1 - Black Dragon Halberd - Congenialty, Skill Points Up, Attack Up +++
Weapon 2 - Qinggang Sword - Congeniality, Skill Points Up, Attack Up +++, Halberd Master, Synergy.

All characters will have a few skills learnt, so it'll be fine that whenever you do "The Conflict at Shouchun" to just do it on easy. But yeah, just keep doing that battle. 2 out of 3 times in 2 player (you'll still get 2 officers bonds up), and then the time you're allowed reinforcements do it in 1 player. Keep doing this until you have just bonds or skill points left (fame is irrelevant).

If you have skills left, just do EVERY level in 2 player. If it's bonds, then pick Lu Bu. Swap the difficulty up to normal (for extra fame). On Weapon 1 change to "Attack Up +++, Health Up +++, Defense Up +++". On weapon 2 have the same as weapon 1 but add "Synergy" and another one of your choice (I picked "Attack Up ++" to kil things just a bit quicker).

Start the level, go save the guy in the first base, run through the main castle to the far end of the map and kill the intruder, then kill the commander. On normal that's about 2-3 minutes of playing. 4 characters bonds up, 12000 gold, and 7400 fame. You can't grumble at that. If it gets too easy, why not swap up to hard for a bit more fame per battle if you. But obviously if you get to 1 million fame and still have bonds to grind, just blast through the level on beginner.

That should be everything. If i've missed something i'll add it, but I don't think I have. Also GO TO THE GALLERY FOR THIS ACHIEVEMENT TO POP. Any questions just ask. Please leave constructive feedback as this is my first ever guide. It'll be much appreciated.

Also special thanks to psxfreak101 for getting me the names of things seeing as I traded in my copy a few days ago for Mortal Kombat >_>
