The nearest clans are the Shimazu and Chosokabe, both off on their own islands. © Valve Corporation. Shogun 2: If you like easy, then Shimazu. The Hattori clan start close to Kyoto. Ashigaru under the Oda have improved morale and also reduced recruitment costs and upkeep costs. In this first part we’ll take a look at the various clans you can play as in Shogun 2. The kisho ninja are very useful for taking cities but you’ll have to take opposing clans down fast or use your diplomatic bonus to broker peace after a victory to prevent crushing counter-attacks from sweeping you away. They are surrounded so you’ll need to move fast to push the advantage and the siege units are still expensive and don’t have loads of ammunition, so don’t focus on them too much. or the problem is the strategy you are using in the campaign. try and look for a problem as you need a problem to fix something. Ashigaru are the key to success with the Oda, katana samurai for the Shimazu, cavalry for the Takeda, these units can form the bulk of armies. They also enjoy a +2% chance for successful ninja actions. It’s too close to the mainland for you to protect it with a navy and this is not the best way to defend. All of the clans are winable however some are easier to play than others. Best clan in campaign? It's really not that difficult to win the campaign, the easiest clans early on are the chosokabe and the shimazu, but the clan you are wont make a huge difference later in the game. Hojo are the easiest clan to play in my opinion, since you can pretty much ignore naval units (at least on the lower difficulties) plus you have a gold mine and two provinces, that are easy to defend, from the start. The Oda clan start in a fairly tricky territory with powerful clans on all sides. It is best to avoid “nanban” influence and focus on getting a foothold on the mainland as quickly as possible. The Hojo clan are the builders of the empire. The other bonus is increased trade income and you’ll need it because they start in a vulnerable position and really require some good armored units to back the warrior monks up. Their starting provinces are nice and easily defended. it is as Yoman said, it dont make much different which clan you are as the different clans give you only different bonuses and some different units. Their strength is the ashigaru, the basic foot soldiers who make up the bulk of most armies in this period. All information and screenshots from Shogun 2: Total War by The Creative Assembly.

It's really not that difficult to win the campaign, the easiest clans early on are the chosokabe and the shimazu, but the clan you are wont make a huge difference later in the game. Obviously you won’t want to let the Christian faith in so avoid “nanban” ports. Over a decade has passed since the original Shogun: Total War launched the series. Oda is easily the best cuz of their op and yet cheap ashigaru can put up a good fight against samurai armies. try to save some replays of your battles and watch it over and look for mistakes, so you can learn from them.

Be careful when you go for the island of Sado (I was expecting an easy victory and it was packed with a fully experienced army and five generals).

The Takeda clan are also in a pretty precarious starting position but if you choose your allies wisely and take advantage of their cavalry bonuses then you can ride to victory. I totally agree with Ieevan. Chubacub. On the plus side they enjoy a charge bonus for all units and they can recruit superior no-dachi samurai for less money and lower upkeep costs. They have bonuses for specialized units that can hide on the battlefield and possess kisho training. This obviously doesn’t apply quite so much to the more specialist units like siege units or kisho ninja. If you have a military specialization or bonus then make sure you take advantage.

The Oda is the most OP clan in Shogun 2. Equipped with spears or pikes they are especially useful against cavalry. Make sure you take Shimotsuke so you get Hallowed Ground for monk bonuses.

You might want to look at a few guides. By the time you reach the middle of the map some of the other clans will be very powerful already so moving fast is vital.
