Mission Start Text
Yuan Shao, who defeated Gongsun Zan and dominated the Hebei region, suddenly marched south. Cao Cao soon found himself overrun along the banks of the Yellow River by a force so vast it seemed to encircle the horizon. However, having received aid in the form of Guan Yu, Cao Cao is determined to fight to the death.
The only way forward is to assist Guan Yu and Cao Cao's army and repel Yuan Shao's forces.

Behold the Glaive of Righteousness Walkthrough
Camp on the Outskirts
You begin the mission in a camp on the outskirts of the Baima checkpoint base near the Yellow River. The First Battle Flag is just ahead of you. Guan Yu will be joining you as reinforcement on this mission and you can find Lady Zhen and Cao Cao by the tents on the left. You can speak to them for some context on the mission.
Baima Checkpoint Gates - Second Battle Flag
Head out of the camp and follow the path towards a watchtower. Look up to see a tree branch extending out of the land and take out the archer perched on it, and then the soldier at ground level. Just ahead behind the wooden barricade is another soldier. Continue onwards, defeating the soldiers along the path and look to the right for a Mystic Crane along the way. You will eventually end up in a large open space with the gates to the first base visible in the distance.
The path to the base is on the right of the hill in the image above. Before going around the hill, climb it through the ledges on your left side and pick up the Talismanic Water on the way up. At the top of the hill is a Demonized Warlock you can sneak up on and take out as he will disrupt you in the battle ahead otherwise.
There is also a bridge up here that you can follow back to the tree branch near the watchtower from earlier for some random loot. Note that the bridge will break in the middle so jump over it as you approach. Also on the other side of the bridge, to its right, you can make your way onto a series of wooden platforms, leading to a hill on the left side of the base's gates.
You can find a chest here with some random equipment and you can also get the jump on the opponents guarding the Second Battle Flag in front of the gates below, which includes a Chang Gui tiger demon, a Demonized Officer and a few Demonized Soldiers.
After defeating all opponents, raise the flag to gain +3 Fortitude and then check the right side of the gates for a Large Genuine Qi Clot. Unfortunately, gates are closed shut by corrupted vines so head to the right towards an enemy encampment.
Enemy Encampment, First Marking Flag
Behind the first tent you see is a human assassin waiting to ambush you. Turn right from this tent to find a clearing with another tent and two human officers.
Defeat the officers and open the chest in the back for a piece of Rank 9 Leather and a piece of Rank 9 Steel. Jump up the tent on the left and use it to get up on the hill above it. Up here, you will find another bridge and watchtower.
To the left of the bridge, you can collect Poison Throwing Knife x 2. Kill the archer perched on the watchtower from range and cross the bridge, collecting the Oil of Awakening on it, and being careful not to step in the middle. Across the bridge is another archer watching the area below. To his right is a piece of Heatproof Ice. Turn to the right on this hill to find the First Marking Flag with an officer sitting nearby.
Defeat the officer and raise the flag for +1 Fortitude. Return to the bridge area and look down to see a soldier by the watchtower's corner and a Chang Gui patrolling the area. Defeat or skip both opponents and then continue on towards through the area on the right where you will find a makeshift bridge to the left and a small wooden platform by the edge of the mountain on the right. You can drop down the edge to find a piece of Rank 9 Steel.
Go ahead and cross makeshift bridge and keep following the path ahead. You can check the cave on the way for a random piece of equipment. At the end of the path, drop down to the foggy mountain pass below and pick up the Large Genuine Qi Clot and Mystic Crane on the way.
Foggy Mountain Pass
Follow the mountain pass and you will find an enemy encampment on the right with another watchtower. Clear all the enemies and pick up the Rank 9 Leather in the area behind the right tent and then climb the watchtower for a Fire Pot.
Now head to the left area to find a large tree with a wooden platform on the left you can climb up. There is an assassin perched on the tree and a Chang Gui tiger patrolling around the tree.
Wait for the tiger to move away and then climb up the platform to the tree and take the assassin out. Afterwards, wait for the tiger to come around again, then perform a jumping Fatal Strike and finish him off. To the left of the tree, you can find Poison Throwing Knife x2.
Opening the Gates
Past the tree is the inner base camp behind the Baima checkpoint gate from earlier. Take the stairs on the left and defeat the Demonized Warlock up on the platform and then pick up the Five Minerals Powder up there. Follow this path to reach a tunnel leading to the other side of the Baima gate, guarded by a Demonized Officer.
As you approach the gates, another Demonized Officer will spawn behind you. Defeat him and activate the winch by the wall to open the gates, unlocking a shortcut.
Behind Baima Checkpoint - Dragon Vein Essence
Head back to the base camp and climb the watchtower in front of the stairs to the hill next to it. Up there, defeat the soldier and then turn right and drop down the ledge to find two wooden platforms with an archer on top of one of them. To the right of the platform in the back is a Dragon Vein Essence.
Baima Gatehouse Building - Second Marking Flag
Return to the watch tower and go in the other direction to find another wooden bridge, guarded by a Demonized Warlock on the other side. Across the bridge, turn left and kick down the rolled-up bundle of wood for a shortcut up here from the gate's tunnel below.
Climb up the ledge to find yourself on top of the Baima gate, with the gatehouse building. It has two doors in the front and in the back, both of which are locked from the inside. Go around the building and look for a wooden platform off the ledge to find a piece of Rank 9 Leather.
Go back around to where you climbed up and go to the left side to find Cao Cao Soldier's Note by the guard rails. It notes that Yuan Shao's army attacked from the north with a large number of demons in their ranks. Turn the corner here to find some scaffolding that you can climb to the roof of the building where you can drop in through a hole.
Drop onto one of the platforms inside the building and defeat the Demonized Warlock. A Shitieshou Demon can be found on these platforms. After interacting with it, drop down below and open the chest for a random piece of gear. The Second Marking Flag can also be found here. Raise it to gain +1 Fortitude. Open both doors to the gatehouse and then make your way back to the last bridge you crossed to get here.
Back to the Enemy Base
Go to the right side of the bridge where you will find another watchtower. At the top is a chest guarded by a Demonized Fanatic. The chest contains random gear. From here, drop back down and continue to the right where you will encounter a Suan Yu demon crane, along with several Demonized Fanatics and Demonized Soldiers and a roaming Demonized Officer. Clear all the enemies and climb the watchtower on the right. At the top is a Demonized Warlock. Kill him and turn around to find a broken tree connecting to the watchtower where you will find another Demonized Fanatic and a Golden Cicada Shell.
From the broken tree, jump down and perform a Fatal Strike on the sleeping Chang Gui tiger demon and finish him off as well as the Demonized Officer in the back. Check the base of the broken tree for a Bear Gall. Opposite the broken tree, there is a scaffolding you can climb up to reach a ledge where a Dragon's Cure Powder can be found. You can also find the Brewer's Husband (Hermit of Tianzhu) here. Exhausting his dialogue will give you the prompt to give him a Sacred Lotus. Give it to him if you have it in order to progress the mini-quest for him and his wife, the Expert Brewer, in the Hidden Village.
Go back down and follow the path where the officer was and turn left around the hill to find a set of scaffolding leading up to the Third Marking Flag.
Raise it to gain +1 Fortitude and lower the ladder next to it for a shortcut up here.
Yuan Shao Army Fortress Entrance - Third Battle Flag
Go back down the way you came and head in the opposite direction of the scaffolding. Keep to the path and you will eventually wind up in a large open area with a fortress in the back, lots of corruption and the Third Battle Flag, guarded by a Corpse Demon, several Demonized Fanatics and a Demonized Warlock perched on top of a platform on the right.
As you enter this area, look to the left for a chest by a tent which contains Rank 9 Steel x1 and a piece of random equipment. Clear out all the enemies and raise the battle flag to gain +3 Fortitude. Climb up the platform the warlock was on to obtain Yan Liang's Note which talks about a disgruntled Yan Liang who is planning to take the Elixir's power for himself and turn the area into a sea of corpses. When ready, enter the gates to the fortress to initiate a cutscene and a mid-boss fight against the demonized Yan Liang and his brother Wen Chou.
This is a duo boss fight against the brothers Yan Liang, who is the slender demon wielding a blade and walks on all fours, and Wen Chou, the larger of the two, wielding a warhammer. Each boss has his own health bar and the most important note for this battle is that you must deplete their health bars at the same time. After killing one brother, you must defeat the other within about 10 seconds or else he will resurrect the dead one with 50% HP.
Yan Liang will often perform his basic 3-hit combo of heavy, wide swing to the left, and then to the right followed by an overhead slash. While this attack is slow, it can be tricky to dodge so watch your timing. However, once he initiates the combo, he will continue it to the end so you can take advantage of this by keeping to his backside and attacking when you have an opening. He is also very vulnerable after the last hit. He will sometimes hold both ends of his sword and smash it on the ground in front of him. This attack does not have much range but hits in a wide area, so dodge backwards.
Yan Liang will sometimes leap backwards, holding his sword in his mouth and then slash forcibly, with his blade extending by a hidden chain in the pommel. This attack has an incredibly large arc and long forward range so you will need to dodge through the swing. If successful, you can attack him during the recovery. Periodically, he will leap high into the air and toss his chain blade at you and then follow up with a dive bomb. You can deflect and counter the dive bomb for huge Spirit damage.
Wen Chou performs very basic swings and smashes with his hammer which can still prove deadly with the amount of heft behind his strikes. He will typically perform two horizontal swings from either side to the other. Sometimes, he will follow up with a vertical smash or perform two vertical smashes in a row. He also has a Fatal Strike which starts off with a heavy overhead smash followed by two somersault smashes. If you deflect the first strike, you will stop the rest of the combo and deal huge Spirit damage.
When both brothers are alive, they may perform a duo Fatal Strike which involves Yan Liang jumping to Wen Chou who then spins him around by his chain blade before tossing him towards you. Stay away from the brothers during the spinning portion and then deflect Yan Liang when he flies towards you.
It's best to let Guan Yu handle Wen Chou while you focus down Yan Liang, but try to keep their HP bars at the same level throughout the fight and remember to defeat both within seconds of each other to prevent them from resurrecting each other.
Once both brothers are dispatched, a cutscene will play which shows you traveling towards the Yanjin Fort with Guan Yu where you join forces with Zhang Fei for the second half of the mission.
Outside Yanjin Fort
After the cutscenes, you will be outside of Yanjin Fort with both Guan Yu and Zhang Fei as your reinforcements. The Fourth Battle Flag will be to your left. Raise it to gain +2 Fortitude. Also to the left is Cao Cao's horse which you can ride to return to Baima Checkpoint if needed.
Enter the area ahead and jump up onto the hut on your right. Use it to get to the second hut just ahead which has a hole on the roof from which you can get the drop on the Huo Shu hedgehog demon below. Collect the Rank 9 Leather on the ground inside and the Elixir behind the hut outside.
Make your way through the village, fighting off the demonized enemies, including and checking the huts for loot. At the end of the path, you will come across the entrance to an old imperial tomb.
Old Imperial Tomb
In the first hall, check the right statue for a piece of random equipment and by the left brazier for a Rank 9 Steel. Note the glob of corruption hanging above which will drop and spawn a Demonized Fanatic as you pass by. Continue to the back of the hall and one of the Terracotta Soldier statues will come to life and attack you. There is also an Anti-static Needle on the ground in front of it. After defeating it, climb the ledge just ahead to find a chest with a random piece of equipment and another Rank 9 Steel.
Fifth Battle Flag
The next hall is lined with sarcophagi on both sides. Some of them have Demonized Fanatics laying in them. There is also a Demonized Officer in the back of the room. There is also a Demonized Warlock on the top platforms who you can reach by going through a tunnel in the right side of the room and following it up and to the left. After defeating the officer, the Fifth Battle Flag's post will spawn to the left of the stairs. Raise it to gain +3 Fortitude.
Check the room for loot including a Small Genuine Qi Crystal on the left and an Elixir on the right. Open the door at the top of the stairs and defeat the Terracotta Soldiers that come to life in the next hallway.
Central Tomb Chamber - Fourth Marking Flag
Through the next set of doors is the tomb's central chamber where a Demonized Officer and a few fanatics are waiting. After defeating them, take the path on the right with the glowing red corruption. This leads to a tunnel where you can find a Tomb Robber's Letter which talks about an overzealous grave robber looking for ancient treasure hidden away in this tomb, who drank the Elixir.
Return to the chamber and take the path opposite the tunnel with the red glow. Halfway through this path is a hole in the wall on the right which leads up to a ledge. Follow the ledge to find the Fourth Marking Flag above the central chamber. Raise it to gain +1 Fortitude.
Return to the path and follow it to the next chamber where two Bronze Soldiers are guarding a door.
Before engaging them, check the left corner of the room for a box you can jump onto to get up to a ledge above. There is a hole in the floor here with a ladder. Before taking it down, go through the path on the left where a giant Huo Shu hedgehog will ambush you. Defeat it and continue down that path where a glob of corruption is. Defeat the enemy that spawns and then check behind it for another Golden Cicada Shell.
From here, turn and collect the Dragon's Cure Powder at the end on the right and the Large Genuine Qi Crystal on the ledge to the left. Return to the hole with the ladder and drop down to the platform below which above the chamber with the Fifth Battle Flag. Drop the other ladder here for a shortcut and jump onto the platform ahead for a chest with random equipment.
Make your way back to the chamber with the two Bronze Soldiers, defeat them and check to the right of the doors for a chest. Open the doors and head inside.
Corrupted Chamber - Dragon Vein Essence, Sixth Battle Flag
This next chamber is full of corruption, with a Leishi demon guarding the very back.
Defeat the Leishi and then check the large sarcophagus it was guarding for a Dragon Vein Crystal. Check the left side of the room for a wooden platform on attached to the wall. You can reach it by climbing the broken pillar in front of it.
Destroy the wall behind the platform for a hidden tunnel. At the end of this tunnel is a glob of corruption with some loot behind it. Halfway through the tunnel is another path on the right. Follow it all the way to the end to find a small room where a Huo Shu hedgehog will ambush you from the left. Check the left side for a chest and drop into the hole on the right to get to a locked room where the Sixth Battle Flag can be found.
Raise the flag to gain +2 Fortitude and then unlock the door here which leads to the left of the large sarcophagus in the corrupted chamber. Take the path to the right of the sarcophagus to exit the tomb.
Yanjin Fort Barracks
You exit the tomb to the Yanjin Fort Barracks.
Make your way through to the large building on the right while defeating the enemies along the way. Check the towers for loot, one of which contains a Rank 9 Steel. The entrance to the large building is guarded by an officer and a Corpse Demon and the Seventh Battle Flag can be found right next to the stairs to the building. Raise the flag to gain +3 Fortitude. If you've collected all other flags in the mission, this should bring your total to 20 Fortitude.
Before heading through the large gates, check all the way to the left and behind the stables for another Rank 9 Leather. Make your preparations and then open the gates to start a cutscene and the mission's final Boss Fight.
Boss: Liu Bei (Demon Form)
Liu Bei is forcibly turned into a demon by Yuan Shao and takes on the form of a bipedal Human/Dragon hybrid, essentially merging with Qinglong, whom he has a bond with. He fights with his dual swords and lightning magic.
When the fight starts, he will float high up into the air and release two lightning orbs on the ground. After a brief delay, each orb will release two rings of electricity in a staggered fashion which travel outwards from each orb, along the entire arena. You will need to time your jump carefully to avoid the rings.
His standard combo involves rushing in with double slash horizontal slashes followed by a single vertical slash, and then a final spinning slash. Each of these can be blocked but if you deflect with proper timing, you can stagger Liu Bei and stop the combo. His other prominent attack is his propeller slash move. Liu Bei assumes a low stance with both swords held to his left side before leaping upwards and rotating like a propeller with his blades, he stays in the air for a split second before rotating one more time as he descends. You can dodge under him as he leaps to avoid the attack and then strike him from behind as he descends.
Periodically, he will slowly float straight upwards while glowing red. After a brief delay, he will release electricity in a large radius around him. Run away when you see him float like this. When he holds both swords to his right side, he is about to perform a rising uppercut followed by a diving slash towards one of you. The diving slash can be deflected for a good amount of Spirit damage.
When he begins flying erratically around the arena, he is about to perform a fatal strike in which he slashes several times while in the air, sending red wave projectiles towards you. Each one of these can be deflected and sent back to him for a huge amount of Spirit Damage. This is definitely the move you want to look out for as sending even one projectile back at him may be enough to stun him and allow you to perform a fatal strike.
With Guan Yu and Zhang Fei by your side, Liu Bei is relatively easy to overpower as his max Spirit is constantly being reduced by the frequent attacks from the three of you. Additionally, despite having Wood Phase affinity, Liu Bei is not immune to the effects of lightning and you can still apply the Shock status on him which will further reduce his Spirit Gauge. This fight encourages being aggressive, frequently stunning the boss and deflecting the proper attacks in order to achieve victory.
After defeating Liu Bei, a cutscene will play and you will gain the protection of Qinglong, the Divine Beast due to your strengthened bonds, unlocking its fourth Divine Beast's Favor as the mission ends. Completing the mission will also award the following:
