In case you missed it, the Awakening DLC Pack for Fire Emblem Warriors is actually scheduled for 29th March 2018, not 22nd March as reported by Famitsu.
Owain will have to control his sword hand for one more week…
This information comes from the game’s Japanese official site, which updated today with additional details about the upcoming DLC pack, as well as the free Version 1.5.0 update.
We’re guessing the Awakening DLC was originally planned for 22nd March and Famitsu forgot to change the date. This would also explain why the Awakening maps for Heroes were scheduled for 12-13th March, before being taken off the calendar.
Before continuing, we recommend reading our previous DLC article if you haven’t done so already.
Awakening DLC Pack
It looks like Tharja has an appetite for destruction.
For those who were worried, the gradual damage inflicted by Tharja’s Destruction Pact skill does not affect the rankings after a battle.
Update 1: According to the North American website, Destruction Pact will be known as Vengeance in the English version. Which fits Tharja, even though it’s actually a different skill…
The three new History Maps are Scion of Legend (shown in Famitsu), Emmeryn (first revealed at Cipher Festival) and Caravan Dancer (based off Mad King Gangrel).
There are new broken armor models for all of the Awakening characters: Chrom, Lucina, Robin, Lissa, Fredrick, Cordelia, Owain, Tharja and Olivia.
New personal weapons:
- Thoron (Robin)
- Lissa’s Healing Axe (Lissa)
- Frederick’s Armored Axe (Frederick)
- Cordelia’s Love Lance (Cordelia)
- Missiletainn (Owain)
- Tharja’s Hex (Tharja)
- Olivia’s Dance Sword (Olivia)
Note that in Version 1 at least, Lissa and Frederick’s weapons are simply “Healing Axe” and “Armored Axe” in the English version. Meanwhile, Cordelia’s weapon was originally Gungnir. Most likely, they will be renamed to Lissa’s Axe, Frederick’s Axe and Cordelia’s Lance.
New weapon attributes:
- Attack/Boost+ (increases the damage of “Attack” and “Boost” atributes like Rainstorm and Triangle+)
- Strike Rate+ and All Stats+ from Chrom and Tiki’s amiibo weapons.
Version 1.5.0 Update
Here’s an Olivia in lieu of any Version 1.5.0 screenshots.
Level Cap increased from 130 to 150. This was implied by the addition of Infernal Blessing, plus there was a screenshot of Lianna gaining experience at Level 130 in the Famitsu article.
- Speed Blessing and Luck Blessing: Boosts the respective stats for all party members.
- Healing Blessing: All party members slowly recover HP.
- Convoy Blessing: Increases number of dropped materials.
- Smithy Blessing: Increases number of dropped weapons, as well as level, quality and number of slots.
- Common-Material Blessing: Increases drop rate of common materials.
Level Reset: Available from the Temple. Resets Character to Level 1 and grants materials depending on the character’s original level.
- It is now possible to record videos (by holding the screenshot button, like other compatible games).
- There is an option to automatically apply the previous blessing before you enter battle (required materials will be consumed automatically). Can be turned On/Off from the settings.
- Improvements to the battle results UI.
- Bug fixes.
After the Awakening DLC hits, this looks like the end of the road for Fire Emblem Warriors. Although it’s still possible for the developers to announce new DLC packs and/or free updates. Hopefully that’s indeed the case–that or Fire Emblem Warriors 2!
Nintendo UK has uploaded a bunch of English screenshots. Here’s a list of the new names:
- Tharja’s Hex: (Unchanged)
- Olivia’s Dance Sword: Olivia’s Blade
- Boost Sword (provides the Attack/Boost+ attribute): Bolster Sword
- Infernal Blessing: (Unchanged)
