survive your first couple of matches.

Without a proper understanding of the characters in Predecessor, you probably won’t make it far, even if you’re just starting to play. So, here are a few simple tips that might make your first hours with the game a little less painful.

How to Play Each Hero in Predecessor

Here, we’ve listed one or two most important tips for every character.

Drongo

Drongo excels at one-on-one combat, and he can be pretty useful in team fights with good timing. His grenade has a long cooldown, which can be used against him.

Feng Mao

Good at chasing and slowing down enemies, aka perfect for chasing down mobility-dependent opponents.

Fey

Fey works better as a part of a well-functioning team than as a solo fighter. She’s great at slowing down enemies, but can be easily charged with melee fighters.

Gadget

She has incredible range damage potential, making her a potential killing machine with little to no weaknesses. Well, except for her lack of burst, which leaves her only with mobility speed in case of emergency.

Gideon

Gideon’s greatest strength and weakness is his ult – it deals insane damage, but can be interrupted easily. Make sure to place him in a safe spot before using it.

Grux

Grux has trouble fighting more than one person. He usually excels at holding small areas, but he has little endurance, so longer fights are not for him.

Howitzer

Howitzer’s main job is to stand at the back and scratch enemies with ranged attacks. He’s rather hard to kill and can be a great help for other players.

Kallari

Great at sneaking behind enemy lines and taking down weaker players, not so great at regular combat.

Khaimera

Great at chasing and killing characters dependent on mobility. However, not so great when it comes long, drawn-out fights with other players.

Lt. Belica

Great at using Stuns and crowd control, Bellica’s main weakness is her lack of mobility, making her a sitting duck if she’s successfully baited.

Murdock

Great at keeping enemy melee characters away, using his shotgun blasts and traps. He’s great at holding the line, though e’s not the best when it comes to scoring kills. Taking him down is always difficult, though ranged characters have less trouble with that.

Muriel

Muriel works best during the early game, as her shields can completely change the first few fights. However, she’s pretty easy to kill without other player’s protection.

Narbash

Narbash’s ult can win an entire fight, if it is channeled all the way through, which happens very rarely. He’s good at testing the opponents endurance, exceling at long clashes between heroes.

Rampage

Another great character to chase mobility-based enemies. He’s pretty difficult to deal with, but cannot take on many players at once.

Riktor

If Riktor will attack a single character that is not a tank, he will likely win in most situations. However, he doesn’t deal with the crowds very well.

Sevarog

Good at longer fights, tanks to his big health pool. With the right build, he can be a powerhouse in the early game.

Sparrow

Sparrow works great against enemy tanks, but she has little in terms of mobility or crowd control. You either kill the enemy or get killed in the process.

Steel

Steel can be used to great effect by combining your knowledge of the map with is wall ability.

Total War Three Kingdoms: Court Guide

Shameful display!

total war three kingdoms court guide

Going to war and managing your troops in the heat of battle has always been the core gameplay of Total War, either that or deliberately heading straight into battle outgunned or outnumbered in order to test the mettle of your troops. But with the Three Kingdoms things can get mighty confusing when you’re not out fighting. You’d be surprised how something as simple as choosing who to put on councils can take up your time when you’re not quite sure of your decisions. That will all go away as we show you the way of heaven’s will in this guide and lead your kingdom to prosperity!

Court Guide | Total War Three Kingdoms

Now the court is made up of your faction leaders, heirs, and your administrators. You manage your dynasty here as you unlock more positions when you progress. Let’s go further into detail below and see how you can manage your people better.

While you’re in the in-game map click on the Court button or press 2 to bring up the rest of your family tree. What you can do here first is to hover over everyone’s portraits to see the positive and negative benefits they can offer if they’re to be assigned to a certain position.

Next thing that you should be on the lookout for is the character’s Background. You can find this by hovering over the general’s name, there’s plenty of generals each with their own unique background so be careful who you choose! For this example, Liu Bei is a Virtuous Idealist. That helps you with public order and upkeep but gives you 25% less income due to their poor background.

Another interesting thing to keep in mind are the basic Traits. You will have to keep a close eye on this as it influences character relations throughout the campaign. Same with the Background, there are numerous Traits in the game and your character can earn more as you progress with them.

Of course besides the individual Traits and Backgrounds you also would want to know more about navigating the Court itself. Each individual position in the court will have its own explanation and allows you to see the rank required in order to unlock it.

You can choose good old fashioned nepotism and assign a post to a family member or a general who’s done actual work with their own hands. Each character will offer various bonuses depending on the position they’re assigned to.

Remember – not all your characters need to be out in the field as some of them are more proficient with administrative affairs. The pen is mightier than the sword, and all of that.

Now that you’ve assigned a post to the members of your Court the next thing you need to do is to make sure everyone is satisfied. You wouldn’t want someone in a position of power to complain and suddenly decide it would be in their best interest to rebel! That gets in the way of prosperity and no one wants that.

In order to view a character’s Satisfaction go and hover over their character panel or check the characters list on your campaign screen. If you choose the character panel check to the right of their age in order to see their opinion about you.

Some of the things you can do to make sure they don’t look elsewhere is to make sure that the post you assigned to them is compatible with their class. For example if your character’s class is Sentinel then you would want to make that character into an Administrator.

Lastly, it’s recommended that you assign a post that complements their level. Give them a post that’s too out of reach for them and their satisfaction will suffer just as much. Now that’s good work ethic!

And that is how you manage internal affairs in Total War: Three Kingdoms. Now that you know the intricacies of the court you can be your very own Sun Tzu and lead by example!
