Weekly Boss Battle and Leaderboards Working?

By nexoScanner / April 16, 2016

Lego promised us Weekly Boss Battles and Leaderboards right after the big Merlok 2.0 update in March, but nothing happened.  The Boss Battles and Leaderboards appeared briefly after the April update, but things were buggy.  Some time this week, it appears that Lego finally worked out the bugs.

If you are signed in with your Lego ID, you should be able to view the Leaderboards and fight the Weekly Boss Battle as often as you want to.  Access the Leaderboards by clicking on the 3-tier winnner's podium in the lower left corner of the map screen. The Weekly Boss Battle is currently on an island just to the left of Knigthonia (the city in the middle of the map). If you are far away, a purple arrow on the screen will show you where to go.

Competition is fierce for a top spot in the Leaderboards. The top 10 kills were all completed in less than 26 seconds. The current #1 spot belongs to somebody who killed this week's boss in 15.1 seconds.

I don't understand how anybody can kill  a boss that quickly and it's very surprising that everybody in the Top 10 is using completely different Nexo Powers.  My best guess is that these Top Knights are at level 99 and have maxed out their knights' gear. Are they hacking too?

Complete List of Nexo Powers – 171

By nexoScanner / April 9, 2016

Here is an exclusive list of the names of all 171 Nexo Powers in the Merlok 2.0 app.  These names were extracted from a data file in the Android version of the Merlok 2.0 app.  Many of the names can be matched to undiscovered icons based on appearance, but not all. A Dutch source seems to reference 172 powers.  I believe that they got their hands on the same list, but did not realize that 1 item in the list was NOT a Nexo Power.

The list is complete, but there are a few oddities.  

  • ​Only 127 of the names match up to the list of discovered powers (currently 131)
  • This list has Haste, but not Superhuman Speed.  There are probably a few more "official names" that have been given a slightly different name in the app.
  • There is a Lion of Bravery and a Sword of Bravery.

Merlok 2.0 April Update

By nexoScanner / April 8, 2016

Pictured Above: The yellow circle is the spot of the Weekly Boss Battle. The 3-tiered victory podium in the lower left is the icon for the Leaderboard.  If you don't see the podium, try logging in again with your Lego ID.

A couple of days ago, Lego updated the Merlok 2.0 app on Android and Apple devices.  This is the 2nd month in a row that Lego has rolled out a large update at the beginning of the month.  Could this be a pattern for app updates?

Anyway, here is a list of what was updated.

  • 171 Nexo Shields are now available
  • At this time, only 131 shields have been discovered
  • Weekly Boss Battle and Leaderboards have been unlocked
  • Game status saves/transfers are possible

171 Nexo Shields

The Shield Collection is getting large.  With the 12 shields that were discovered this week, it can be difficult to figure out which shields you are missing.  You may want to start using the "filter" to view all of the shields of 1 knight at a time.

Weekly Boss Battle and Leaderboards

Update: Even though competing with other players sounds like fun, the Weekly Boss Battle and Leaderboards are buggy at best, some say it's still a broken feature.  Optimistically, Lego may release a small update to fix the Weekly Boss Battles.  On the other hand, we may just have to wait for next month's update before Weekly Boss Battles and the Leaderboards works properly.

This looks interesting.  The first Weekly Boss Battle is Jestro random and buggy.   You need to sign in with your Lego ID in order to view the Leaderboard and participate in the Weekly Boss Battle.  The faster you defeat the boss, the higher you will rank on the Leaderboard.  Choose your Nexo Powers wisely, the goal is high damage to a single enemy.

You only get one chance Weekly Boss Battle, so practice on the regular stage bosses and pay attention to what Nexo Powers work well against a single, strong enemy.  Before you start the Weekly Boss Battle, you get to see the Leaderboard: who is ranked, what Nexo Powers the chose,m and how long it took for them to defeat this week's boss. That should give you a clue to what powers work well.

Once I complete the Boss Battle, I could not find the Leaderboard again.  ​Hopefully this changes, so that you can see your status compared to others. For now, it may be a good idea to take  screenshot of the current leaderboard and the on-screen timer when you finish the boss.

I have a feeling that it won't take long for people to figure out which Nexo Powers work best to quickly defeat bosses.  These are the powers that I used to beat Jestro in a little over 1 minute.  I'm positive I could have used a different selection and finished in under 60 seconds.

Note: Greatest Hits may be worth experimenting with...maybe.

Saved Game Status

I discovered this by accident. If you log in with you Lego ID, it looks like you are able to save your progress in the game.  I switched to a new phone this week and started playing the game from the beginning. A few days later, I noticed that I wasn't playing a "brand new" game anymore.  I made the move from an Android phone to an Android phone.  I haven't tried switching to an Apple device, but since it seems related to your Lego ID, it should probably work with any device(s).

If you experiment with this and want to let me know how things worked out for you, please comment below.

331-Silk Spider

Spin your foes into prey!

Summon a giant spider that spins a magical web on the ground.  Any enemies caught in the web get stuck and cannot move.  The spider releases a blob of poison, inflicting damage right away, and poisoning the enemies (enemies take additional poison damage over time).

Every hero has a helper.

A magical duplicate of your character appears at your back and attacks any enemies that are behind you.  The Sidekick stands with its back to your back and attacks as slow (or as fast) as you attack.  This looks like a much better power than Mech Master and the other "summon an assistant" Nexo Powers.
