Masamune's was tough to start with because he was surrounded by kingdoms which resisted his Sky Drop. I managed to just barely beat Kenshin's army (and recruit everyone but Kanetsugu there) using Guardian Charm Masamune with one turn left on the clock, and had Guardian Charm Magoichi solo Valora (thankfully he was able to 2HKO both Steelix and Lairon with use of Cupid). From there on it was much easier to sweep across Ransei.
Gracia's could also be kinda difficult due to her once-every-two-turns attack. I had her sit out of the fight after recruiting a few unique warlords. Oichi's can be pretty hard if you don't have her link with any kinds of Pokemon besides Normal. Motochika's was pretty fun because I had to beat back Nobunaga in pretty much every battle after unifying the kingdoms he hadn't conquered yet (not to mention, he resists your Aqua Tail). Once I captured Illusio, Terrera and Viperia, I just Guardian Charm solo'd the rest of the story.
On that note, the hero mission was also kind of tricky to start with since this time around, all of the warlords are transformed with their perfect links and start at about 20% link or something; they also level up pretty quickly.
Anyway, does anyone know if you have to be on Ieyasu's story in order to get Registeel? I've gotten way more than 15 unique warlords with their best links and the crystal still won't come. I also had a rank 2 Nobunaga, but no sign of the Conqueror Crystal.
