At the beginning of the battle, there's no enemies on the map, so go to the designated spot. Some troops summoned by sorcery will appear, so keep on fighting them until Gan Ji ends up appearing. Defeat him to make the gates open, allowing you to go forward.
Here, you can either go straight or go right to the barracks entrance. If you go right, you'll have to keep fighting phantom soldiers until you are cleared, which opens the gate to the barracks. The appearance of these ghost soldiers will close nearby gates on the straight path. In the next area past the barracks entrance will be Liu Yao and Yuan Shu, so take them both down.
After those two are done, Yan Baihu and Xu Gong appear, so defeat both of them, which will open the gate nearby. Past the gate will be a small area, where a ghost version of Sun Jian appears, who is a little bit tougher than the normal officers so far. Once he's gone, Xiaoqiao appears, so take her out, too.
Make your way to the throne room with Sun Quan, where Gan Ji will appear once again. Defeat him to make the gates to the actual throne room, where you will have to fight a ghost version of Sun Ce. Once he's through, Gan Ji will set fire to the room and make three versions of himself appear. You need to take down all three versions in order to continue.
Gan Ji will now appear outside the castle, exhausted, where he'll run away a little bit. Give chase, defeating the unit commanders to open gates when needed. When you get to the one area, you'll have to defeat a phantom version of Gan Ji again to open the next gate. This final path will lead to the real Gan Ji, so finish him off to complete the battle.
|In order to get the star on this stage, you need to find and break the source of Gan Ji's sorcery. This is actually an urn-like object that is hidden within the stage. To find it, go left when you defeat the first phantom Gan Ji near the beginning. You will have to climb a ladder to continue, but keep going north to find the urn with a blue mist coming from it. Hit it once to destroy it.|
