|LEGO Nexo Knights: Merlok 2.0 Update 1.3.2|
LEGO Nexo Knights: Merlok 2.0 has recently released update 1.3.2. The official descriptions of the new contents are:
- Boost your powers in battle through crafting.
- Win, collect and craft LEGO studs.
- New powers and ways to level up await.
On a face value, the new update seems a bit weird, so I searched online for some sort of guide but none seems to be posted yet. I then proceeded to explore the updated game blindly, and here are what I've learned. Remember that I am no pro-gamer, this is just me attempting to make sense of it all.
The update prior to this one allowed us to collect LEGO studs of various types and colors by completing different mission challenges. But it did not tell us what the studs are exactly for. Now it was revealed that the young builder Robin will use these studs to make gems (tada!).
Different studs are required to make different gems. Each gem would generate various numbers of star plus points and various levels of battery charges. I thought at first making gems consumed my Nexo power stars, but no, this is not the case (more on this later).
After making the gems, you can now equip them prior to battling monsters in your missions (right after choosing Nexo powers). As stated above, the gems would give star plus points and lasts for specific charges. In the picture above, a red pyramid ridged gem gave the red Nexo powers additional two star plus points, and it's good for three uses. The white gem did the same for the white Nexo power. The gems are color specific, so only equip gems of the same colors as the Nexo powers.
Other major changes the update has brought us are on the ways to master and level up Nexo powers. Before the update, these two concepts are one and the same, but not anymore.
First impression: All my stars are gone! Were they consumed from making gems? So I did the only natural thing to do: Re-scan Nexo powers!
But Merlok won't let me, because apparently, I have mastered that Nexo power already (because I really did!). That's when I noticed the varying yellow glow on the Nexo powers borders. That's the current equivalent of the then zero to five stars! Once you've mastered a Nexo power, once you've completed the yellow glow border, you can now level it up!
|Level Up 1|
|Level Up 2|
|Level Up 3|
All you have to do is to select the mastered Nexo power in the grid (with the exclamation point) then click its shield on the upper left hand corner. Now watch the star be transferred from the shield to the stars collective. This would then result to stronger Nexo powers, or so they say...
