Several Changes Coming To Fire Emblem Heroes. Increase In Stamina, Position Changes & More

The Japanese Twitter account for Fire Emblem Heroes has divulged that several changes and updates will soon be coming to the game. Fortunately the details have been translated by Reddit user Van24 and it by the looks of it, these changes will be quite welcoming.

Firstly and probably the most beneficial, at the beginning of each battle, you will be able to change your unit’s starting positions to better suit your attack strategy. You will be abble to swap them around as much as you like providing you haven’t made the first action. If you do, you will no longer be able to move them around.

Adjustments have been made to how much experience is earned by characters depending on their Star ranking. Lower Star rank units will earn more experience from low level enemies than Higher Star rank units would against the same enemies.

Stamina will also be increased to 99 as opposed to 50 and can be restored up to 99 with the use of Orbs and Stamina potions.

We should be able to see these changes come into play with a new update that launches sometime in April.

Are you still playing Fire Emblem Heroes? Will you be looking forward to these updates? Please be sure to let us know in the comments below.

Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Elixir Guide

The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has indeed broken from tradition of collecting hearts to restore your health and has also added environmental dangers that can harm you as well, be it atop of Icy mountains or Active Volcanoes to even braving the desert or running amok amidst a thunderstorm. To replenish life you have to cook items you have gathered and make dishes to increase the amount of hearts you can recover (Check out our Cooking Recipe Guide for more information). However, while some foods do have extra effect bonuses, sometimes you don’t want to waste a dish that could help you out later on just for an effect boost, this is where elixirs come in so allow us to present to you our Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Elixir Guide!

Buying Physical Games Finally Pays off with My Nintendo

The biggest thing with regards to My Nintendo that always annoyed me, was the fact that every time I buy a physical title, I’m not rewarded for it.

I don’t buy digital games because I despise them, I just don’t buy them purely because I like to be able to look at the box art. I enjoy taking the cart/disc out of its box and putting it into my console/handheld. You don’t get that feeling when you buy a digital title and because of that, I didn’t rack up many Gold Points with My Nintendo, but that has now changed.

If you buy a physical Switch title and register it to your console, you can now earn Gold Points for My Nintendo, and the more expensive the game, the more points you will earn. Only thing is though, compared to the points you would get if you brought digitally from the eShop, the points for buying are next to nothing, which in my opinion sucks. It feels like they are finally giving us what we want with one hand, whilst slapping us in the fact with the other, but it is what it is.

There is no changing it and at least some Switch rewards are to be added very soon, so that will distract us from our stinging cheeks for a bit and if you think I’m being over the top, please feel free to comment as such in the comment section below;
