Wu is a nation which does not normally exist during the timeline of the game and has to be released to be played. The general strategy is very similar to Ming which controls Wu's cores.

Strategy

Wu's strategy is based on replacing Ming in China and preventing and then following the Ming strategy.

Reclaiming cores

If Wu has revolted free before being played then the first aim to reclaim all core territory. This is important as unclaimed cores cost Prestige which has several knock on effects.

Conquer China

Wu then needs to replace Ming, this can be done in one of two manners, the first is to simply go to war several times, however this is high in infamy and slows the nation.

The second method is to form a Personal Union over any Chinese nations and if possible Korea and Japan. When inherited then cores are given and then it is possible to follow the latter half of the Ming strategy.

South East Asia

South East Asia if accessible is a source of Vassals which provide both funds and armies, they should not be conquered as they are of a different culture which will drive up stability costs without significant benefit.

Mid and late game strategy

Main article: Ming

The mid and late game strategy is the same as Ming, the aim is to Westernise and then do as the player wishes.
