Tons of details about Fire Emblem Heroes version 2.0.0 – official overview

The new update for Fire Emblem Heroes went live earlier today. It encompasses a whole bunch of content and features such as Book II, the Weapon Refinery, Legendary Hero abilities, expanded Barracks, and much more. That’s on top of other changes, improvements, and adjustments.

■ Book II of the Story Has Begun

Cloaked in flame, he crosses the sea—unquenchable, insatiable, undying flame.
Trees fall, mountains burn, steam billows. The seas are swallowed.
Stars become cinders, and the moon falls from the sky.
The saga of the Fire Emblem Heroes game proceeds to the next chapter…

Book II of Fire Emblem Heroes has arrived!

Get Fjorm: Princess of Ice by clearing Chapter 1: Part 5 of Book II. 

Chapters will continue to be added, so work together with the other members of the Order of Heroes and proceed through the tale!

Those who have not yet completed Book I can still access Book II, so we suggest that any players who haven’t cleared Book I yet obtain Fjorm right away and then proceed with the story of Book I. 

■ Legendary Heroes and Blessings Have Been Added
Legendary Heroes—Heroes with new abilities—have been added. The first Legendary Hero is Fjorm: Princess of Ice, who can be obtained in the main story.

Legendary Heroes have one of four legendary elements, including Water, Wind, Earth, and Fire, that resonate with the corresponding Blessing to give Heroes strength. 

Legendary Hero Abilities
When you make a Legendary Hero into an ally, you will also obtain a Blessing item that corresponds with the Legendary Hero’s element—one of four possibilities.

Here’s a list of the benefits given to a Hero with this item:

・SP earned in battle will be doubled.
・In the corresponding season, if the Hero is deployed along with the Legendary Hero, they will receive stat bonuses.

Example: During the Water season, a Hero with a Water blessing deployed with Fjorm: Princess of Ice will get HP+3 and Spd+3.

Each season will feature two of the four elements: Water, Wind, Earth, and Fire. Seasons will change at the same time as Arena seasons.

The current season is displayed on the upper-left corner of the menu.

Important Information about Blessings
Once a Blessing item is used on an ally, it cannot be removed from that ally.
A blessing can be changed for another, but the first blessing will be lost when the second is set.
There won’t be many chances to get Blessing items, so think hard about who to give them to.

Fjorm: Princess of Ice will be available from 11/27/17 at 11:00 p.m.(PT) and will also be part of a Legendary Hero summoning event.

■ Level Up Your Skills with the Weapon Refinery
Strengthen the weapon skills of your Heroes! 

After clearing Chapter 13, Diabolical Bloodline, in the main story and then clearing the Intermission chapter The Rite of Blades, Weapon Refinery can be found under Advanced Growth.

・Durandal → Blazing Durandal
・Killing Edge+ → Slaying Edge+

As shown above, existing weapon skills can now be refined into high-level weapon skills.

Also, some weapons can be strengthened with special effects, such as increasing a Hero’s stats or other abilities.

Refining weapons requires Arena Medals, Refining Stones, or Divine Dew.

You will be able to get Arena Medals and Refining Stones from events, quests, and the Arena, so play a lot of different modes and do quests and events if you want to strengthen your favorite Hero.

Important Information about the Weapon Refinery
Divine Dew can be obtained by refining weapons.
Arena Medals can be obtained by winning in the Arena. The number of medals will be based on score.
If there are multiple ways to strengthen a weapon, you will be able to change the skill in Equip Skills.

■ High-Level Skills for Staves
Some staff skills and healing skills now have high-level skills added that you can learn at 5★.

Heroes who obtain the base skills naturally can use SP to learn the high-level skills. Heroes who obtain the skills through Inherit Skill will not be able to learn the high-level skills.

■ Cooldown Lowered on Some Special Skills
To make a broader range of Special skills more useful to players, some Special cooldowns have been lowered by 1.

■ Barracks Get Bigger
All users will have their Barracks expanded by 100. Even those who have maxed their Barracks at 1,000 will now have room for 1,100. The max will now be 1,100.

■ Arena Scores Have Been Adjusted
Arena scores for Beginner and Intermediate levels have been adjusted to match Arena Assault. As well as making high-level rewards easier to earn, Arena Medals for use in the Weapon Refinery are also easier to obtain at Beginner and Intermediate difficulties.

■ Arena Assault Rankings Have Been Adjusted
The number of players who receive high-level rewards has increased.

Starting from the season beginning 11/27/17 at 11:00 p.m.(PT), the following changes will be made:

Before Change After Change Rank Reward
1 to 100 1 to 1,000 30 Sacred Coins, 30 Refining Stones, 5,000 Hero Feathers
101 to 1,000 1,001 to 3,000 25 Sacred Coins, 25 Refining Stones, 4,000 Hero Feathers
1,001 to 5,000 3,001 to 5,000 22 Sacred Coins, 22 Refining Stones, 3,000 Hero Feathers

 

■ Rewards for My Nintendo Have Been Added
Hero Feathers have been added to My Nintendo rewards. Redeem 100 My Nintendo Platinum Points for 2,000 Hero Feathers, up to five times. (Note: You must be a My Nintendo member to redeem points and obtain these rewards.)

■ Various Other Improvements
・Stamina required for Story Maps has decreased. No maps will require more than 10 stamina.
・On screens with status details, the areas with weapons, support skills, and Special skills will each be displayed in different colors.
・It will be easier to tell which summoning events can be accessed without using Orbs for the first summon.
・An effect has been added to combat animations when 0 damage is taken.
・The menus for Training Tower, Arena, and Voting Gauntlet modes have new background imagery.
・Some skill descriptions have been updated to better reflect their functions in-game.
・Traditional Chinese has been added to Select Language.

■ Known issues
For some devices running iOS, the detailed explanations that appear when you tap on a Hero’s name or a skill icon currently do not display properly. If this occurs, please check for explanations on the Hero’s detailed profile page instead. We’re working on this, and appreciate your patience until it’s resolved.

Razer Phone now official with 5.7-inch display, Dolby Atmos speakers

Earlier this year, Razer acquired the team from Nextbit that put together the Robin smartphone. Now the fruits of that acquisition have been revealed.

The Razer Phone is now official. Razer, which has built its name on providing top-tier gaming hardware and accessories, continues that trend with their first smartphone, which is keenly positioned as a perfect gaming unit for a variety of reasons. First and foremost is the 5.7-inch LCD display, which has a resolution of 2560×1440, wide color gamut support, and a 120Hz “UltraMotion” refresh rate.

The other bits and pieces all fit together to make a high-end flagship smartphone. That includes a pair of forward-facing Dolby ATMOS speakers that flank the display which are THX-certified for a rich listening experience. Under the hood there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 that supports Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 4+, which means the device can go from 0 to 85% charge in just an hour.

Razer Phone2

The Razer Phone is equipped with 8GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, and a microSD card slot. The battery is 4000mAh, it has a USB Type-C port, no 3.5mm headphone jack, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat, with a planned update to Android 8.0 Oreo in Q1 2018.

Meanwhile, the back of the phone is outfitted with one 12-megeapixel f/1.75 wide angle camera, while the other is a 13-megapixel f2.6 camera with a 2x telephoto lens, and both are equipped with autofocus. There’s a dual-tone flash as well. Meanwhile, the front of the phone has a 8-megapixel shooter.

The Razer Phone will be priced at US $699.99 / €749.99 / £699.99 and it will launch at Razer’s website, Best Buy, and select Microsoft retail stores beginning November 17. In the United Kingdom, the wireless carrier Three will be the exclusive launch partner.

The Nokia 2 is official and boasts a 2-day battery life

After releasing the top-of-the-range Nokia 8, and waiting to launch the rumored Nokia 9, HMD Global has announced a new entry-level smartphone for less demanding users. Called the Nokia 2, the new model’s main selling points are its affordability, as well as a long battery life.

Nokia 2 design 

The cheapest of Nokia smartphones doesn’t neglect its design. The images of the Nokia 2 show a classic but elegant looking smartphone with simple lines and no buttons on the front. As you might expect, the body is made of plastic and comes in three colors: black, copper or white. 

Nokia 2 hardware

The Nokia 2 is an entry-level smartphone, with an introductory price of below $99, so naturally it does not offer especially high-end specifications. Under the hood, the Nokia 2 packs a Snapdragon 212 processor with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. 5 inch HD display for the screen. The Nokia 2 would ship with Android Nougat ready, but with the update to Android Oreo confirmed. The phone will also have Google Assistant, making it stand out from the crowd in the entry-level market.

Opinion by Nicholas Montegriffo

For casual use, Nokia was right to focus on the battery life

What do you think?

When it comes to photos, the Nokia 2 features an 8-megapixel main sensor at the rear and a 5-megapixel front sensor. Finally, there’s its most interesting and hyped feature, the 4100 mAh battery. HMD promises 2 days away from the charger, assuming you use the phone for 5 hours a day.
