The Handmaiden before the battle will mention her little sister being held captive by Xiahou Mao, which is going to be your first true objective. Clear out the first area and then approach the handmaiden to make her open the door. Head to the left once inside and clear out all of the officers, including Zhang He, who will free the little sister.
She will open the path going forward, which will cause Xiahou Mao to retreat, leaving behind Cai Wenji for you to battle with, so take her out to get out of the area. While this is all going on, Jiang Wei will show up with Ma Zun, but Xiahou Mao is becoming suspicious of him. Follow the path that will lead straight to Jiang Wei, clearing the ambushes that he springs on you.
Defeating Jiang Wei will cause him to retreat to the southeast corner, but before heading over there, you will need to take out Ma Zun to truly isolate him. Once Ma Zun is out of the picture, head to the outside area and go south to find a small path that will lead to Jiang Wei. There are a few traps along the way, which shouldn't be much trouble. Defeat Jiang Wei and he will join Shu after a short scene.
In order to reach Xiahou Mao, you need to capture the armory, which will grant you access to a bridgelayer. Jiang Wei will open the gates for you, so defeat the officer inside to capture the armory. As soon as you do, Yue Jin and Li Dian will appear just to the south of it, so take them out in order to let the bridgelayer reach its destination.
When you cross the newly formed bridge, Wang Yi and Xu Huang appear, so take them out. Around this time, Xiahou Mao will likely have left the battlefield, but if you're quick enough, you can get him. Either way, the true commander of the battlefield will be Guo Jia, but he also has Guo Huai as his helper nearby. Defeat Guo Jia to finish the battle.
|In order to unlock 11W-X. Pacification of Nanzhong, you will need to defeat Xiahou Mao. The problem is that it's at the end of the stage and he will retreat before you likely get to him. Towards the end, you recruit Jiang Wei to your forces and he helps create a bridge across to where Xiahou Mao is. Once the bridge is finished, you need to hurry and defeat Xiahou Mao, as he will retreat and leave the battle.|
