Your goal at the beginning of the battle is to capture the two frontline bases. Once you capture one, though, the enemies will begin retreating down the western path. However, Sima Zhao thinks the enemy is behaving strangely and opts to head east. If you're playing as Sima Zhao or Wang Yuanji, then head east, but the other two will continue south on the western path.
Both parties will meet with an ambush, so defeat the officers and start making your way to the southeast garrison. Once you make it there, defeat the officers that appear from the southeastern checkpoint, then clear the garrison itself. This will trigger the whole group to start making their way to the escape point.
When you reach the eastern garrison, the gates will shut and an ambush appears. Defeat the officer and then continue to the northeast. Ding Feng will now appear in the northern base, as well as set fire to the northeast area. Defeat him and then continue to the next area, where Lianshi and another officer appear. Take them out and then it's a clear shot to the escape point.
|You need to make sure all of your allies survive the battle, which shouldn't be too difficult. Since everyone splits up near the beginning, you need to make sure you work quickly to clear a path to the southeast garrison. Once you do, you'll meet up with everyone and should be together for the rest of the battle.|
