    • Note: In order to get Cao Ren's Level 10 Weapon, you must destroy Wu's first two siege ramps and two catapults before they can send in the second set. Only when Wu's first set of siege weapons are destroyed before the first of the second wave can spawn will Cao Ren say that all the siege weapons have been destroyed and you're ensured to get the weapon upon defeating Lu Meng.

Before defeating both Han Dang and Gan Ning, do the following:

  1. Do not meet with Niu Jin.
  2. Seal Gan Ning and Han Dang's gates.
  3. Boost Niu Jin's morale to 8 stars (each 15 KOs by Cao Ren will boost Niu Jin's morale by 1 star).
  4. Afterwards, defeat Han Dang, Gan Ning, Zhou Tai ambush and Zhou Yu ambush within 10 minutes.
  5. Level 11 message.
