It's been said that Wei had Thirty-Six Important Advisors (重要谋士三十六人) who's efforts were irreplaceable to Cao Cao's rise to power. The first 35 are: Chen Qun Hua Xin Gang Yao Man Chong Dong Zhao Wang Lang Cui Yan Mao Jie Jia Kui Du Ji Tian Chou Wang Xiu Yang Xiu Xin Pi Yang Fu Tian Yu Wang Jie Kuai Yue Zhang Ji Du Xi Zao Zhi Ren Jun Chen Jiao Xi Lu Huan Jie both Ding Yi bros Sima Lang Han Ji Wei Kang Bing Yuan Zhao Yan Xi Gui Xu You Guo Huai. The 36th's identity is debated, any idea who it was?

That’s….silly.

I mean, that’s basically just a list of a whole bunch of different people who served the Cao family. Some of those are military advisers, some generals, some were administrative officials, some staff officers, some who were mostly private scholars… There’s no coherency to that group at all. It’s just a random assortment of people.

How did Shu lack talented officers and strategists since like 240? What I like about Wu and Wei is that all there talented officers get replaced by a new talented generation while Shu's just seem to grow old and die (minus Luo Xian, Fu Qian, and Huo Yi, and I guess Zhuge Zhan and Zhuge Shang).

I feel like Shu had something of a “grey ceiling”. Long-serving ministers seem to have occupied a lot of the top positions for a long time - a bit more than in Wei and Wu. And I think Shu had less room for advancement. Their wars were only on one main front (in the north against Wei), with far less significant fighting in the south.

Still, there were plenty of talented people who served Shu after 240.

Dong Yun, Dong Jue, Lu Yi, Xiang Lang, Meng Guang, Lai Min, Li Zhuan, Qiao Zhou, Xi Zheng, Ma Zhong, Wang Ping, Zhang Ni, Zhang Yi, Liao Hua, Deng Zhi, Zong Yu, Jiang Wan, and of course Fei Yi.

It’s not that Shu lacked for talent. It’s that the praise is always given to people who don’t deserve it.
