Legend of Wu

For this achievement, you have to complete both the hypothetical and the historical paths of the Story Mode for the Wu kingdom. To access the hypothetical route, you must achieve the secondary objectives in several different scenarios up to a certain point. The certain point for Wei is the seventh stage, Battle of Hefei. Any later scenarios after that aren't necessary, but provide alternative reasons to attain them.

Stage 1: Escape from Xiangyang
Optional Objective(s): Defeat Lu Gong before he can retreat.
Details: Complete all of the primary missions given to you. When you're presented the task to proceed up the northeast path to enter the castle, be prepared to call and ride your horse. Once you enter the castle, isolate Lu Gong's location and reach him before he can exit out through the western side of the castle. This one task will fulfill all three of the secondary objective stars that this map has.

Stage 3: The Little Conqueror in Peril
Optional Objective(s): Defeat Xiahou Dun, then Gan Ji.
Details: (You may want to use Sun Quan or Zhou Tai) Halfway through this mission, the Wei forces will appear. Xiahou Dun will be camped in the northwestern garrison while protecting the gate will be Cao Ren. As you go to proceed through Sun Quan/Zhou Tai's objective, Xiahou Yuan will appear to raise the drawbridge. You may either take care of him and then his brother, or simply proceed up to Xiahou Dun and take care of him first. Make sure you stick around in the garrison after all of the messages are through for Guo Jia to appear. Defeat him to unlock the side mission (3-X: Defeat Gan Ji).

Stage 3-X: Defeat Gan Ji
Optional Objective(s): Locate and destroy Gan Ji's source of magic.
Details: Once Gan Ji appears at the northmost camp, he will split apart into three dopplegangers and set the camp on fire. This is the time when you need to backtrack all the way to the northwestern point on the map (a dead-end on its own). Here, you will find a large cauldron-like creation that is breakable. Simply swipe at it to complete the objective, run back, and finish the mission.

Stage 5: Battle of Nanjun
Optional Objective(s): Successfully employ the decoy strategy.
Details: (Suggested you use Zhou Yu) Follow the objectives to the T. You will first be tasked with rescuing Gan Ning to the west. Clear any and all officers in your way, making sure you fall back early on to take care of the officers planning to take out your camp. Once Gan Ning is rescued, you will be given the idea (one of two) to act as the decoy to attack the northwestern-most encampment. Simply stay where the map directs you to, taking care of the five to six officers that will proceed after you. Once Li Dian proceeds to exit the base, he will fall to the attack, and you must finish him off.

This will prompt the second of two ideas for you to be the decoy. Now, you must swing around the exterior of the eastern side of the battlefield and ensure another decoy attack works. Stick to the higher ground, following the checkpoint marks directed to you on your map. Once you reach the final point, remain there for Zhang He and Xiahou Yuan to come to you. You must defeat them within the garrison, but in order for the plan to work, Lu Su must be in place (Thank you, LV 1 Blue Slime). Afterwards, remain there for the messages to flash past you, and you should have completed both decoy attacks and, equally, the secondary objectives requiring them.

Stage 6: Battle of Jing Province
Optional Objective(s): Lead Lu Su to Jing Province Castle.
Details: Play as Lu Su and complete all of the objectives given to you as they appear. This is the simplest secondary objective, as it coincides so fluidly with the main mission.

Completing these objectives will enable you to access the Hypothetical Route of the story. In Stage 7: Battle of Hefei, should you have kept Zhou Yu alive by playing as him in the Battle of Nanjun, he "should" appear for you and join the conversation with Lu Su. Speak to him to open the route, and then complete both routes to get the achievement. Any other secondary objectives are merely to help unlock additional content (voice pieces, event information, etc.) so you may still wish to complete them as you come across them.
