Wow, I really don't understand the infatuation with Cao Pi from many. I actually find him rather boring with a pretty crappy moveset. But, to each his/her own.

Ling Tong has been my favorite since he entered the playable character world in DW5. I get drawn often to characters with more unique weapons in the games so when I saw his nunchakus, obviously, it was something new. Was not at all deterred by his weapon change in DW6E when they gave him the three part staff since it was more of an upgrade than anything else. His attitude and demeanor are also rather inviting, though I prefer Gan Ning's rebellious and independent personality. Given the history between the two, it makes for some added enjoyment in battle when they compete with each other, especially since Gan Ning is one of my other faves in the Wu Dynasty.
