Your first goal of the battle is to go north and defeat Sun Quan's assault unit, which is comprised of three officers. Not long into your mission, Cao Cao will mention that southeasterly winds are blowing. This will trigger an event where an enemy fire ship collides with your entire fleet, setting it all ablaze. That means that your health will be cut in half while you're on the ships.
Cao Cao now needs to get to safety by escaping to the south. This is complicated by Cai Mao defected to the enemy, but start making your way to the next rally point, defeating officers in the way, which include the likes of Han Dang and Huang Gai. Your goal is a small ship on the west side of the map, but you will need to defeat Taishi Ci before you can board it.
Board the boat and Gan Ning will jump onto it, so you will need to defeat him before you can set sail. As soon as you get to land, go forward to encounter both Liu Bei and Sun Shangxiang. Defeat them both and then you'll see Zhang Fei appear not much farther. Things get even more complicated as some of Sun Quan's forces appear to the south and start moving to your position.
You can either go back and take these forces out or continue north, where you will be ambushed by a rock attack unit and some archers. Defeat the two officers there to eliminate both problems, then continue north to the escape point. When you get close, Zhao Yun will appear, so defeat him to open the gate and finally escape.
