Legend of Jin

For this achievement, you have to complete both the hypothetical and the historical paths of the Story Mode for the Jin 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 the Jin kingdom is the eighth stage, Battle of Xuchang. Any later scenarios after that aren't necessary, but provide alternative reasons to attain them.

Stage 4: Coup d'etat
Optional Objective(s): Defeat Cao Xun, Cao Yi and He Yan before defeating Cao Shuang.
Details: Simply proceed through the mission until the final confrontation with Cao Shuang and his group. Defeat the three officers surrounding him, then deal with him last.

Stage 4-X: Xiahou Ba's Journey
Optional Objective(s): Quickly defeat Jiang Wei.
Details: Proceed through mission objectives, stalling Xiahou Ba's progress as Guo Huai or rushing to Jiang Wei as Wang Yuanji/Sima Zhao. As soon as you encounter Jiang Wei, defeat him as fast as you can to prevent their rendezvous. Then, go meet with Xiahou Ba to complete the mission.

Stage 5: East Gates Battle
Optional Objective(s): Ensure the escape of all allies.
Details: Quickly defeat any ambush and/or events that come before you as any characters. Doing so will guarantee the life that remains on any and all of your units. For increased speed, remain on horseback and sweep over the enemy units with your attacks, including the enemy officers.

Stage 5-X: Battle of New Hefei Castle
Optional Objective(s): Protect all of the gates.
Details: Within the castle, you will find officers attempting to break the gates open and allow the rest of the forces within. Follow the mission objective (to ensure the life of your fellow allies) and sweep through the enemy. Once you finish up with the enemies in the courtyard, you should receive a notice of the attack plan succeeding, if done right.

Stage 6: Battle of Mt. Tielong
Optional Objective(s): Reach Guo Huai before he is injured.
Details: Upon entering the battlefield, head east instead of south. Take care of the enemies located there (Li Jian if you've completed 4-X, Xiahou Ba if not) to prevent them from taking clothes. They will still succeed with that attempt, however, so proceed south around the outside of the battlefield. Xingcai in the Shu Provisions Depot (southeastern base) will release Wood Oxen and Flowing Horses, following behind shortly thereafter. Sweep over and defeat all of them, then continue proceeding around the southeastern road, dealing with everything in your way until you arrive just outside Guo Huai's base. The enemy from before that stole the enemy clothes will reappear surprised. Deal with them, and then meet up with your comrade.

Stage 7: Guanqiu Jian & Wen Qin's Rebellion
Optional Objective(s): Defeat Wen Yang/Qin and Guanqiu Jian last.
Details: (Suggested to play as Sima Shi) At first, proceed until Wen Yang appears, then double back to meet him at your main camp. After the cutscene, proceed up the western byroad and deal with all threats in your way. Once you reach the Western Castle's west gate, Wu reinforcements will start appearing. Defeat the Wu reinforcements (the last one will be with Ding Feng) and then proceed onto the main battlefield of the north. Wen Qin will comment on seeing suspicious activity, which will be your cue to start dismantling the officers within. The two bases to the south of Guanqiu Jian's castle will open, and then (after defeating those two officers) the other three will open. Deal with these five officers to leave just the three key officers on the battlefield (Ganqiu Jian, Wen Qin, and Wen Yang). You will know if you've succeeded in this if you approach Wen Yang and a conversation between Shi and Yang takes place.

Once all of these secondary objectives are met, Wen Yang will appear at the intermission camp for Stage 8: Battle of Xuchang, allowing you to take the Hypothetical route for Jin, which will involve Wen Yang intercepting Wen Qin's plans. Any other secondary objectives are merely to help unlock additional content (voice data, event information, etc.) so you may still wish to complete them as you come across them.
