Title: Warframe
Post by: Kalys on January 16, 2013, 08:34:41 AM
This is an upcoming F2P 3rd person sci-fi co-op shooter
Free access to the Closed beta of this is available now, had not heard about this one until just recently, surprised at how good it looks

Ok.  I'm interested.

Ps4 video and interview below. No new footage (although it's confirmed it is all in game which is great)
The interview is great.

- f2p pve coop. Clan game anyone?
- build clan dojo's

The most interesting thing though is that Sony only approached these guys 3 months ago,  and they have already got the pc version ported. This is good news for our future gaming goodness.

Also the are Aiming to run at 1080p 60fps.

I should give this a run on PC.

I did see it on Steam the other week and had to pass because i was out of quota :(

Post by: Kalys on June 20, 2013, 01:01:25 AM
i did spend a fair bit of time playing this on steam, it is pretty fun, though it did get a little repetitive over time

not sure if that has changed since last time i played, they are patching it pretty consistently as i tihnk it is still classified as being in Beta
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Barnzini on June 23, 2013, 12:45:11 PM
I gave this a whirl on PC last night after downloading a 350mb patch. First off it looks alright and has some nice physx effects, plays like a typical third person shooter with added movement.

I picked the standard "newbie" class and ranked upto level 4. first level i went in solo and came very close to running out of ammo a few times. 2nd and 3rd level i somehow found a co-op game and they were a little laggy. The other guys must of spent money upgrading their stuff because they were tearing shit up and i barely did anything at all.....kinda frustrating watching the other players just race on ahead with speed perks killing everything in sight....almost like i wasnt really needed to play.

One guy had a bow with this little robot hovering over his head and the other seemed to have some type of invincible dash move or something....i'll have to find out how to unlock this stuff....apparently you can either grind it out for it ( taking many hours) or just buy the stuff on their store.

I don't know if paying for items in a BETA is worthwhile.

If it is set up like the NW beta it would be ok as it carries over to the release, if you lose it after the beta it may not be worth it.
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Kalys on June 23, 2013, 09:13:48 PM
as you level up and you collect boosters you can upgrade you weapons, gear and abilities pretty significantly

also (at least this was the case when i last played) nearly everything can be obtained in game for free via crafting, though it can require a fair bit of grinding to get some of the materials

only thing you cant get without paying is some of the exclusive class armor

It sounds like you have been playing with randoms :)

The game has a very involved crafting system that requires lots of farming, the first thing you will need to farm for is the Clan Key http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Clan_Key, this will give you full access to our Dojo but your permissions will be based on rank.

Dojo Info: http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Clan_Dojo

I am currently building a reactor and a connecting piece so we can expand the building.

Played a couple hours of this today and I liked it,  although some parts I didn't understand. I tried fusing or transmuting or something a couple of the trading card things. All that happened is it cost me money and they disappeared?

Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Pat on January 19, 2014, 08:07:07 PM
Transmutation just swaps 4 cards for a random card, fusion combines like cards to make a more powerful one.

Fusion is the one i did. I did something like the 40% health and 40% shield card together and i seriously swear to god i got nothing in return. i only had 1 sheild card and its gonskis. And no other cards have any shield benefit.
i had 3 health cards, now i have 2.

We need to build a barracks to have more members, to do this we need to finish the reactor and the hallway. You also need to build a Dojo Key and that is a bit of farming, maybe we could catch up tonight and help you out?

Ok so resurrecting this thread as I'm downloading it now to try out with @Auldar and @ViRuSsK

So I've watched some videos, looks like a 3rd person Destiny, aka grindfest, but hey I'll give it a run.

Any starting tips you can pass on Auldar as I know you've played it a fair bit (or anyone else that sank time into it)? For starters, which frame is good to start with?
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: ViRuSsK on January 13, 2016, 01:37:03 PM
YOure only given a small selection of frames at the start, so really just choose one with abilities / weapons n such that you think you will like, Later on you can build more advanced frames and such.

And if youre one who usually doesnt pay attention to the tutorial... might pay to pay attention to this one :p

I used to play on pc when it released... no idea what my level was though

Watched a few videos and most people seem to say it's better to start with Excalibur or Mag. Excalibur seems well rounded, but Mag looks more interesting to me.
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 13, 2016, 03:30:46 PM
I never enjoyed Excalibur. Mag has some use later in game. Volts ok.

Bows are hard to use to go with the Braton to start with..

L3 to toggle sprint
L1 to start to slide but gives a burst of speed. Press it until just before you would slide, repeatedly gives you extra speed

From an L1 slide hit jump and you'll go fast, while in midair, hit R1 (might be circle with the new layout) and you'll attack with melee giving you some more distance. Then L1 again to start it again. (This gives you speed runs). Some melee weapons are better than others to get extra distance.

I used to use Nova a lot but she got nerfed as she was WAY OP.. Kill everything in a huge radius. Now I use Rhino prime to kill everything in a very big radius (not as much damage though) but also make them freeze for some time.

You need to farm bosses for the component blueprints and then farm resources to make the components. You then buy the frame blueprint to make it with the components.

Rhino is from the Jackal on Fossa, Venus.

Got virus the 3 components in about 5 or 6 runs. Now he needs some mats to make them..
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 13, 2016, 03:36:09 PM
The best sentinel is carrier as it vacuums up all the mods and ammo around you.

The best sentinel weapon is sweeper (IIRC).

To get the most out of every frame and weapon and carrier, you need mods which can be found doing missions, and some can only be found in the void by using keys..
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 13, 2016, 03:48:56 PM
IMO the best use of starter platinum is probably a Carrier sentinel, and maybe some extra slots for warframes and weapons.

Orokin Reactors and catalysts double the mod capacity of frames and weapons and are essential to max out mods. Look Gift of the Lotus missions after a Devstream for a mission to earn them. Otherwise they're a good buy with starter plat too.

Use it on a frame you're going to keep though.
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 13, 2016, 04:08:16 PM
Ah I also remember there is a rank requirement to use Rhino and some other frames. I think Rhino is rank 2..
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: AkyraStrike on January 13, 2016, 04:43:54 PM
Think I'll start with Mag and see how ai go from there, looks like it could be something else to muck around in while we wait for new content in Destiny.
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 13, 2016, 06:46:56 PM
Good choice.

Just remembered something else. You rank up mastery by levelling up frames and weapons. There's a limited amount of xp you can gain. If you sell a weapon without getting it to 30, you're leaving some of your mastery potential on the shelf. That means in the late game if you want to get max mastery (takes ages) you'll have to get those weapons again and re-start levelling them.

Note you only get the xp from them once. If you level one to 15, sell it and get a new one, xp doesn't count toward mastery until the weapon hits rank 16..
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 13, 2016, 06:50:19 PM
Also, regarding starter plat. The ONLY thing you can't eventually earn in the game is extra slots for weapons and warframes.

As such many people recommend only spending it on those and then grind out the rest. While true, Carrier makes such a difference that I still think it's worth buying.

I eventually spent about $180 on this F2P game because I felt I got about 2 normal games worth of value out of it (over 200 hours, which pales in comparison to destiny ;))

I think coming to the party late and not really having many friends playing meant I didn't really get into this.

Pretty much sums it up at most low level content.

I've been playing this with my Dad as he got into it and asked me to help out with some boss fights. I got a free Frost Prime warframe with Twitch Prime and have the original couple of frames I had when I played before.

This game is very much like a third person diablo to me, rather than a 3rd person destiny like most people compare it to, as once you have a good build on your frame and weapons, yes you just melt everything around if it's not a sufficiently high level.

I downloaded the PS+ free booster pack which gives you some platinum (the in game currency you buy with real currency) and I brought another frame with it after researching what looked fun, so my main frame is Octavia at the moment.

To sum it up, I'm having fun with it playing with Tobor, but it is the grindiest of all grinding grind games in grind world.

Update 22 (Plains of Eidolon) is live on PC and due to hit consoles in November, so there's a been a fair bit added since update 15/16, in particular a main story quest called "The Second Dream" (added in update 18) which was basically a big "holy sh*t" reveal in the terms of what exactly you are etc.

Tobor and I typically have a chat party going when we're playing, whilst I'm not sure you'd want us to come help you with anything (as at our level / gear we could literally melt an entire map just by looking at it..), we're happy for the company / chat and can give any tips or answers you might have questions about.

not sure how much time I want to sink into it just yet.  I made the mistake of treating it like a fps and was wondering why I was having such a hard time.  Then I upped one of the damage mods to 100% and its like ooooooohhhh diablo

All good mate, same goes for what I posted to Des. And yeah, it's a third person Diablo to me, but the grind is very very real... but it's fast paced and easy to jump into (once you get the gist of what everything means), so like diablo, it can get its hooks into you.

Guys in the clan, @Toborstrike @Destille82 @ViRuSsK @elrast333 I will probably set off the ascension ceremony to level up the clan in the next day or so, it lasts 72hrs, so be sure to visit the clan dojo and claim your Endo from the shrine in the Oracle room (it's across from the Tenno Lab if you use the teleporter from the entrance hall)

And I still need to put more forma into a lot of weapons / frames..

Easiest way to level is defence missions with a resonating quake Banshee, helped Tobor and Virus level get from 0 to 30 in 20 waves. Lower level, Helene on saturn works, otherwise it can be quicker to use Hydron on Sedna.

Had a functional Trinity (pre-nerf), Banshee, Saryn, Nova, Rhino/Prime, Ember Prime, Nekros and Loki. Maybe a few others.

Can't remember how to play or spec them though ;) nor how many Formas I put on them.

I'm enjoying feeling strong though, something Destiny needs to learn.

Trinity is still the queen of support, her 2 builds "EV Trinity" and "Blessing Trinity" as still very useful and a great asset in team content.

Banshee is viable but quishy, using her resonating quake build on defence missions is very strong through.

Saryn, well Saryn is a bit mediocre all round, takes a lot of effort to be effective with her, and other frames can do what she does, but better.

Rhino had his iron skin nerfed, but is still solid and a top tier tank.

Nekros is a great farming frame with the right set up.

Ember is fantastic at low level gear, especially with the firequake build (this is what I was running last night when we were doing relics) but Embers viability drops off hard after about level 50.

Loki still trivialises just about anything in the game and is extremely strong, provided you can stay invisible.

YouTubers iFlynn, Brozime and MCGamerZ are my go to for most builds, though often I'll tweak their builds to suit my on play style.

Cool - having fun grinding for new mods and frames :)

Since they added things in the last few years I still have to go back and re-do some challenges to unlock the junctions (soloed Lephantis with Nova last night - it kept bugging out when Tobor and Des were trying to help me).

So many things you can do to progress the character and weapons.

I was farming Lephantis the other night (I think you sent me an invite but I was appear offline for a reason haha).. Lephantis fix is incoming, but essentially dont aim down the sights and you should avoid most of the reason the corpus head bugs out, I farm him with Titania and just blast the Corpus head first and kill it in 1 rotation to avoid the bug.

Still need Nekros systems from him though so I need to fight him a bit more. I only need Ash, Atlas, Chroma, Harrow, Nekros and Nidus (plus Gara once Plains drops), and my set is complete.. not counting Primed variants obviously, though I do have Ash, Banshee, Ember, Frost, Hydroid, Loki, Nova, Nyx, Oberon, Saryn and Trinity Primes... with Valkyr pirme cooking at the moment..  so I think I'm only missing Rhino & Volt Primes

Iíve still got another 6 ODA keys if you want some company killing him (assuming making the keys is holding you back). SlowNova makes it much easier to hit the damage points as theyíre so slow.

Iím currently trying to get Nav coordinates for Mesa and have just seen how much of a PITA they are to get - can those keys be used by all people in the squad? Any of you guys have them?


I do have a full set of Rhino Prime and am tempted to offer it to you but feel like that would be overly generous if itís vaulted and worth up to 1000 plat..

Bad RNG is whats holding me back, had multiple neuroptics and chassis drop but no systems, I think I've got about 8 ODA keys left. Some people think Slow Nova can also bug out the Corpus head.. others also say Frost (or Taxon freeze beam) can also do it and most people agree that you shouldnt do any damage at all to the infected or grineer heads... but essentially no one knows for sure. I ran it about 6 or 7 times in a row on Tues night with Titania and only had it bug once in phase 2. Always happy to run with others though as it just means it dies quicker haha

Iím currently trying to get Nav coordinates for Mesa and have just seen how much of a PITA they are to get - can those keys be used by all people in the squad? Any of you guys have them?

Not sure how it works with Mesa boss, I know ODA seems to only take a key from the person who initiates the mission.

I do have a full set of Rhino Prime and am tempted to offer it to you but feel like that would be overly generous if itís vaulted and worth up to 1000 plat..

With Rhino and Volt both vaults, buying is the only option.. Rhino is an odd case as his price seems to vary wildly.. I've seem as low as 350 but as high as 1000... can't quite work out why.. I wouldn't want to rip you off as it's a valuable set.

Also do you do the daily sorties @Auldar ? I can solo some of them but otherwise are a bit tough, since I unlocked em about a week ago I'm only managed to complete them 3 days.
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on November 09, 2017, 02:55:45 PM
I just unlocked Sorties myself and would be keen to have a go with you. I probably need to grind out a few more of the newer mods (and Endo) to be a bit more effective, especially around level 100 but willing to try (and Iím working on my mods ;))

No worries, the only time I have issues with the lvl 100 sortie is when it's a boss as I just can't put out enough damage on my own. Haven't had any issues with spy (Loki), mobile defence / defence (Nova or Octavia) or Sabotage (Again Nova typically).

As for mods, most of what you need for the majority of set ups can be found in the void or dragon doors on the derelict.. let me know if theres any mods RNG is being painful with and I'm happy to check if I have duplicates I can throw your way.

I think the main OD Vault one Iím missing is Transient Fortitude. Iím also still grinding out Steel Meridian rep, and waiting on the and Prime mods. I really need to farm Tigris Prime parts too as that weapon looks BEAST.

My old Boltor Prime build is not putting out the damage it used to.

I did pick up the Primed Point Blank from the fortinighly sales guy so should do ok with Tigris Prime when I get it.

I got rid of a bunch of duplicate prime BPs for about 3500 Ducats. I had 9 of this and 6 of that etc and held onto sets where I had them and at least 1 or 2 of the others.
Title: Re: Warframe

Also maybe need an Armored Agility (nightmare mod). Not sure. Iíve seen it in a few builds but not in others.

Tigris Prime is amazing damage output, it's typically my go to weapon, though I still rotate it out depending what I'm doing and which frame I'm taking and a max rank Primed Point Blank just makes it insane.

Next time Baro Kiteer comes (weekend of 18/19th) he will bring Primed Flow which is another must buy if you dont have it, it'll cost 350 ducats. He'll also have primed ravage which is nice on some builds.

I just checked and I don't have a spare transient fortitude, but I'm always happy to do orokin vault runs to stock up mods for sale etc. I do have a spare rank 0 armoured agility if you want it.

Haha yes, as @Destille82 said when he came into a chat with @Toborstrike and I, it's like we were talking chinese :troll: dont worry, it does all start to make sense.

Is there fixed cycle for primed mods for baro?

Baro is like Xur, he comes every fortnight on the weekend, usually around 11pm / 12pm friday ADST for us, cant remember exactly. He appears on one of the random relays (space stations) orbiting a planet, but you will get an in game inbox message to alert you where he is.

The stock he delivers on console is currently 6 weeks (or 3 visits) behind PC, so it's easy for us to know what he's bringing. He takes Ducats as his currency, you get these by selling prime parts at the relay consoles in the centre of the main room (one to the left, one to the right of where Baro typically appears)
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: AkyraStrike on November 10, 2017, 09:03:17 AM
Just to show, this is what Baro will bring next:

(https://i.imgur.com/kNVwBg6.png)

He probably wont bring the day of the dead stuff as these cosmetics were for halloween and we got them last time.

Out of that list, Primed Flow (+% energy) is a must buy, used in 90% of warframe builds, Primed Ravage (+% crit damage for shotguns) is also nice and used a fair bit. Outside of those, I wouldn't recommend Scorch or Volcanic Edge as both of these can be obtained elsewhere.

For the weapons, Prisma Skana is ok, but not really end game, nice if you want the MR rank for it though, Prisma Obex is a decent sparring weapon, I'll be picking it up for my Valkyr.

The rest are cosmetic items and not worth it unless you have ducats to spare or are at end game, and end game is fashion frame :troll:

Of and the sands of Inaros Quest is a must buy if you dont have it, but he brings it each time anyway so it can wait until you're strong enough, Inaros is a fantastic tank warframe.

It can be done with others, but only if they have the quest as well. Ran into this issue when Tobor and I did most of the quest together, but then I finished it on my own when he wasnt around thinking I could just go in with him to help but unfortunately it wouldn't let me as Id completed it already.

Anyone got a spare Covert Lethality?

Not at the moment sorry, I had 3, gave 1 to Tobor and sold the other for 20p. I use the T3 Spy on Pluto as a XP farm when ranking up weapons so if I come across another Covert Lethality I'll let you know.

I farmed the invasion for the alad V nav co-ordinate so I should be able to help with at least 1 run at mutalist alad v.

Also, note that Saryn Prime, Nikana Prime and Spira Prime are set to be vaulted in the coming weeks when it comes time for the new Prime access. So if you want these farm them while you can, or farm a spare set to sell later when their price goes up ;) It's also expected that Loki Prime will be unvault, I already have him, but if anyone doesnt, then highly recommend getting him if the rumours of unvaulting is true, he turns spy missions into a farce.

I have Saryn, I need 1 spira prime blade to make it, but still need all the Nikana parts other than the blueprint, so I'll be hoping to get at least the Nikana as its a good slash based weapon.

Excluding some of the extreme research projects (Hema for example, and the arch wings that need a ton of oxium) most of the research is complete in our clan.

Haha no worries, hopefully youve crafted the dojo key to access the clan dojo? If not, that'll be your first step.

Once you get into the dojo, I've build a teleporter network to save time, teleport to the "Tenno Lab", go out the door and run straight across to the room opposite, that'll be the Oracle room, in there is a shine you can partake in the ascension (once I activate it later tonight), you have 72hrs to do it.

Is there an easy way for me to know which items I’ve made, levelled up to 30 and deleted?

I know I can check in the codex but I was hoping there was some indication in the Foundry that I’m missing.

As far as I can tell it just tells you if you have the item in your inventory already made, but I don’t want to buy slots for weapons I’ll never use again.

How do you manage item slots and levelled weapons?

There was a time I remembered which ones I’ve done but this was 3 years ago.

Edit: I’m also trying to decide if there’s any reason for me to hold onto the non-prime variants of frames I’ve levelled and also have the prime variant. I’m inclined to sell them to free up the slot..? That’s still the done thing yeah?

Companion app is very handy, especially for building forma and feldron / mutagen masses, etc. while you're away from the console.

As far as I know the codex is the only place to keep track of what you've mastered, there are apps you can download and manually tick it off, but it's not the most useful way.

I've effectively just sold any weapons that are MR trash and I can't see them being useful again, especially if they are easily obtainable via the market or clan dojo.

Warframes I've actually kept all of em, gotta catch em all! haha.. I have brought a little bit of plat via buying the Oberon Prime access back in June (as it came with Silva & Aegis and Sybaris Prime, both excellent weapons) and spent it on slots mostly, but also trade rare mods for 10-25p a pop and that can buy some more slots.

Picked up the story quest, Saya's Vigil, but haven't done any of the missions yet.

I ran the lowest tier bounty solo and it was easy, then did the 4th tier (about level 50) bounty with @ViRuSsK and @Toborstrike and we died a few times, virus in particular :troll: but we got it done. Then ran the 3rd tier bounty with the same two plus @Destille82 and it was straight forward.

We tracked down an Eidolon at night to have a look at it, we could barely tickle it with out weapons / operators, and it would basically 1 shot us haha, so thats for later on when we're more prepared.

Tobor and I also spend about half an hour fishing, it was hard to get the hang of how / when to throw the spear at first but eventually it clicked. Tobor got catch of the night with a 28.7kg fish.. but also caught 2 boots :troll:

Keen to jump back in over the next few days and very disappointed (though not really) that I'm going on holidays next week and will miss out on all the fish.

Also for those not following Warframe on social media, there's a freebie code for a Vectis (sniper rifle) and a skin for it, enter the following code on your profile on warframe.com/promocodes

So Iíve been researching what I need for an awesome Tigris Prime, even if itís less useful in PoE.

Seems Iím missing too key mods.

Frigid Blast and Sweeping Serration.

Baro should sell Sweeping Serration again in 2 weeks (if I worked it out correctly) but he has never sold Frigid Blast.

Any chance you guys have a spare? Happy to pay plat for itís appropriate value..

Hate to say it but you probably paid 10p too much.. (or 20p too much as I would've given it for free lol) but at least you've got your build.

Yeah, Tobor, des and I all brought mesa too rather than do the ridiculous grind.

Just you both got the endo in time. Tobor and I picked it up last night :up:

Ahh yes credits, they can be a pain when you need em but then build up crazy when you don't. I had over 3mil at one stage and dropped all the way down to about 50k haha.. back to about 1mil now
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on November 26, 2017, 12:43:24 PM
I’ve been researching best ways to farm credits and Endo.

As far as I can tell, the best Endo farm is the Arena on Vodyanoi on Sedna. I was able to solo the Level 80 mobs, although it wasn’t super fast. Would be better with a team. I’d say 5-8 minutes for 400-600 Endo.

As for credits, there’s a couple of good nodes with a dark sector relay on them that give about 25,000 every 5 mins or so. When I had a credit booster for 3 days I hit Hieracon pretty hard and got a mil in a couple of hours. Do one excavator and then extract. The excavator has a 25% chance to also give you 200 Endo.

I think the “best” method is to use the Index. I haven’t tried it yet but it looks like you could make 75-125k profit very quickly if you have a good team.

I need to level up a bunch of Prime mods so need more Endo and Credits. Happy to farm together if others also need them.

BTW how much should I be willing to pay for a Primed Continuity?

Looking forward to Baro’s visit next weekend so I can get the last mod I’m missing for my new brutal Tigris Prime, Sweeping Serration.
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Destille82 on November 27, 2017, 12:08:33 AM
I use warframe.market to get a feeling of how much items are worth. From what I have been  seeing Primed Continuity isn't cheap most prices are between 60 and 100 Plantinum. Definitely up for some credit/endo farming somewhere this week, not sure if I will be a big help as you probably need to carry my ass through those missions.

Post by: AkyraStrike on November 27, 2017, 09:22:24 AM
I'm fortunate enough to have credit boosters for months thanks to twitch drops, but generally I run darksector missions, in particularly Gabi on Ceres (infested survival) and even a run to wave 10-15 nets me 50k credits. Yes, the Index can net much more gains but is a pain in the ass.

For Endo, Hieracon on Pluto every day, run the first two extractors and if you're lucky pop 800 endo (400 per extractor), then extract, rinse and repeat.

Primed Continuity goes for roughly 100p on average, can be had for less if seller is willing but generally that'll be the average. Don't forget too, when trading Primed Mods, it'll cost you 1 million credits just to do the trade in the first place. Then it'll cost about 40k endo to max it and another 1.9mil in credits... expensive things these mods..

Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on November 27, 2017, 10:31:04 AM

Yep, regardless of mod rank, it's a mil to trade.

300 plat for a max rank isn't too bad.. but still a ton of plat for something that can be had for some ducats in game whenever baro decides to bring it again..

I have a primed continuity, but only at rank 6 (so basically only 1 rank higher than a standard continuity mod), can't rank it higher yet as I'd need to forma at least half a dozen frames to fit it on properly anyway, I'll get around to it one day haha

Awesome.

BTW did you mention you enjoy Titania? I got her to 30 and can now use her to cheese the Maroo quests.

Is she worth a potato? I know she can be useful taking down Teralysts but trying to work out what my next most used frame will be.

Thinking it might be Mesa but I haven’t levelled her up yet. Maybe Inaros (just started levelling).

BTW did you ever get another Covert Lethality? Think I might need it with Inaros, so I might have to start farming it.

Thoughts?

BTW did you mention you enjoy Titania? I got her to 30 and can now use her to cheese the Maroo quests.

I love Titania, but to be honest, she needs a re-work. Her only good ability is her 4th (razorwing) and if you build for it, it's really fun, I can often run in pixie form for entire missions (aside from when I need to open doors).

Is she worth a potato? I know she can be useful taking down Teralysts but trying to work out what my next most used frame will be.

I have a potato and 4 forma in her (but most of my frames have a potato and a few forma). Honestly, she's fun, and very handy in some situations, but shes average for "end game" content.

For terralysts, the optimal squad of 4 is Chroma for damage (vex armour build), Volt (Prime) for shield damage enchancement, Trinity (Blessing build) for the heals and in particular if you want to capture the eidolon rather than kill it as Trinity's job is to keep the lures alive and Harrow as his 4th ability can protect the party from the 'explosion' phase of the fight. But that's just optimal squad build, I guess anyone is technically viable, you just might die more haha

Thinking it might be Mesa but I havenít levelled her up yet. Maybe Inaros (just started levelling).

Mesa is a strong frame, can be damn near invincible if you keep shatter shield up, and peacemaker can destroy just about anything. I have 4 forma into Mesa too.

BTW did you ever get another Covert Lethality? Think I might need it with Inaros, so I might have to start farming it.

Yes I did actually pick up another covert lethality, I'll give it to you next time Im on (might not be tonight but should be on wednesday-thursday.)

Also it looks like the next Prime is going to be Mirage rather than Mesa, which is a bit of a shame, Mesa Prime will be amazing, Mirage Prime will likely just be one to add to the collection.

No worries, as always, just my own opinions and you might find certain frames more effective / fun depending on play style etc.

Nah it's all good mate, at most I'd get 5 or 10p for a Covert Lethality, happy to just give it to ya. At most, if you've got a spare 'junk' prime part that you dont need I'll take that so I can cash it for Ducats  ;)

Spaz has played a few hours on this and it is sooo much better than when it was first released on PS4. I really have no idea what's going on though. I went to a community area and couldn't do anything and then ended up outside the area in a co-op type area which was more kunfushun than the community area. It is a massive improvement on the earlier release but the lag was strong still. Spaz might jump in and out as it seems to be pretty easy to do this.

I grabbed buzz kill but didnt have the ducats for Maim. Need to do some serious relic / ducat farming for Xur Baro's next visit, although the only 'needed' item i can see he is bringing will be Primed Target Cracker... but as end game is fashion frame.. theres plenty of cosmetics to buy :troll: and given it's his last appears before christmas, he might bring some christmas themed stuff.

Working on my secondary weapon build for Mesa and can't believe I don't have any pathogen rounds!! How is that possible?

Probably because it only has a 0.23% drop chance from Anti-moa's and a 5.64% from the second hidden cache on hive sabotage... I famed the crap outta hive sabo to get pathogen rounds and shell shock (shotgun +% electricity and +% status chance mod). Honestly lost count of how long it too me to get em both to drop. I hate that tileset so much..

The Hema, if thats what you're referring to in the 5k mutagen, is just plain ridiculous requirements, we'll work on it slowly but I'd rather concentrate on getting all other research done first (we're not far off). If we are in need of mutagen samples though, the ODD or ODS with a team including a desecrate Nekros and a Pilfering Swarm Hydroid in a 20 wave / 20min run will yield best returns, which mind you, are only about 30 to 50 samples per run.

Also, last chance to farm Saryn Prime, Nikana Prime and Spira Prime is about 6am 13th December for us, so if anyone needs those we should do a group farm in the next few days (I just need a spira blade, I have saryn and Nikana).

And then the new Prime, Mirage, enters the game:

Along with Kogake Prime (sparring weapon) and Akbolto Prime, which look stunning, hopefully they perform as good as they look, they'd have to be good to make me stop using Sicarus Prime:

I've come down with a virus so spent too much time playing.

Managed to get a few things like Helios Prime, Nikana Prime, Saryn Prime and a couple of Spira Prime bits. Still need a few more and doubt I'll get them in time.

Been a productive couple of days!

Haven't been able to play much this past week, I did get a nikana prime together though, still just need a spira blade, but only have 2 relics left with the drop in it.

Been farming focus a lot lately more than anything... And fishing.. always fishing haha
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on December 10, 2017, 03:42:47 PM
I've got some blade relics. Problem is I lack the void traces to make them radiant. We should organise some relic runs to see how we go.

I haven't needed to fish for a while. What do you need the fish for?
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: AkyraStrike on December 10, 2017, 04:03:32 PM

Turning em in for standing, not to mention make bait to catch the rare fish needed to craft higher tier amps
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on December 10, 2017, 04:05:12 PM
There's a low level Lith fissure mission. Farming as many traces as I can.

I haven't managed to level up the Mote amp yet so haven't looked at the others. I guess I'll get to that later ;)

So many things you can work on.

Haha cool.

I decided to buy the accessories pack mostly for the 3 months of boosters (wish it included resource boosters add well though!). The plat and cosmetics are just bonuses..

Man a couple of runs through Medium index gets credits crazy fast with a booster on!

Now I'm nearly out of endo again so will have to do more arena.

Anyway haven't seen you on much recently (although I was in Perth for a couple of days this week) but we should do some relic runs or credit runs etc

Last night was the first time I've been on this week, crazy busy with work and other RL stuff that I've just been too tired to bother playing. I'll be on tonight and probably saturday / sunday nights. Happy to run just about anything, definitely need some ducats (baro is back this weekend) and always need more credits / endo.

I decided to buy the accessories pack mostly for the 3 months of boosters (wish it included resource boosters add well though!). The plat and cosmetics are just bonuses..

I did the same! Worth it in my books. Then I ran some relics last night and already snagged 2 Mirage Prime parts (the blueprint and neuroptics) as well as 1 piece each of the Kogake and Akbolto.

Below are the relics (and where to farm em) needed for each part:

MIRAGE PRIME:
Lith S7 Relic - Chassis - Common
Meso H1 Relic - Neuroptics - Common (Io - Jupiter)
Neo M1 Relic - BP - RARE (Hydron - Sedna)
Neo V6 Relic - Systems - Uncommon (Stephanos - Uranus)

AKBOLTO PRIME:
Lith S7 Relic - Link - Uncommon
Lith C2 Relic - Barrel(2) - Uncommon
Neo M1 relic - BP - common (Hydron - Sedna)
Axi A3 Relic - Receiver(2) - RARE

KOGAKE PRIME:
Meso K1 Relic - Gauntlet(2) - RARE
Axi A3 Relic - Boot(2) - common
Axi V7 Relic - BP - uncommon

Managed to get an eidolon lens blueprint to drop!

Any suggestions on which frame would get the most focus farming out of it?

Banshee? Still don't have the mod you mentioned.. what was it again?

I have a normal lens on rhino and my Tigris Prime. Ideally it should be a frame which can kill lots of mobs with it's 4..

Yep I have an eidolon lens on banshee prime, resonating quake is the mod you need.

Otherwise my suggesting would be someone like ember or equinox who can farm focus pretty quick

Decent weekend of farming, I have Mirage Prime and Kogake Prime now, just need Akbolto. Also went on a focus farm spree hoping the final console patch for the year would give us focus 2.5 but alas we wont get that until next year, there will be 1 more update on console before year end though; details here: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/895396-ps4-plains-of-eidolon-update-2251-in-cert/ (https://forums.warframe.com/topic/895396-ps4-plains-of-eidolon-update-2251-in-cert/)

Last dev stream of the year showed off the newest warframe, the cat lady Khora, she'll hit PC before year end but again, console wont get her until early 2018.

Khora looks like she could be a bit of fun:

https://youtu.be/YOY4jVGcp-0

Dev stream also showed off the final door in our orbiters opening, as well as new eidolon's to fight, a Megalyst which is apparently about 5x bigger than the Terralyst and players will need to do "something" to trigger the Megalyst spawn.

Speaking of which, we should really team up to take down some Terralysts one night, just gotta make sure we have our operator amps upgraded.

Yep, but can only gild it if you're over Adherent level (3) with the quills.. I'm currently only level 2.

Alternatively, you build a higher tier amp (again need to be higher standing with quills to buy the BP's.) In saying that, we might struggle, but I'm sure we can take down a Terralyst with standard mote amps.

DE have confirmed the Prime Vault will be opened in January, with 3 frames becoming available for a limited time, those being Frost (surely we all have him), Ember and 1 other they havent confirmed, but it's likely to be Loki (or Nyx).

These sets will be good to farm regardless if you have em or not as they'll fetch decent plat again once re-vaulted.

That would make Eris - Xini the best location to farm em then (that's the smaller corpus ship tile set with 1 point upstairs, 1 off centre and 1 each side of the map through doors.)

Though it might be a 14.2% drop chances, its in a pool with 7 different relics, so we'd still need to get a bit lucky.

Fingers crossed I can sneak a few runs in when I get home, but given 99.9% of the playerbase will be farming for Maiming strike, I wouldn't be surprised if Violence is done quickly.

Lastly, for fans of Warframe, you can grab the PlayStation Plus Booster Pack II Bundle to help get you started on your adventure in the Origin System. The pack includes 100 Platinum and 50,000 Credits, Akmagnus Dual Pistols and Akmagnus Obsidian Skin, a 3-Day Affinity Booster, a 3-Day Credit Booster, and a Dragon Mod Pack! This offer is available to all PlayStation Plus members until February 13, 2018.

After a few weeks of grinding and buying what I couldn't grind, I've finally achieved a goal.

Got a Banshee Prime all set up for stealth Focus farming!

Its probably less effective than Equinox (just finishing building the Day aspect. Took about 40 runs to get the Chassis ><) but from what I've seen it's a LOT less mucking around.

Activate Silence (Savage), and spin to win! Refresh every 40 seconds or so.

I didn't do very well but still managed 50k focus in my first Adaro run!

I'm using an Atterax with Maiming Strike etc
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: AkyraStrike on January 01, 2018, 06:10:42 PM
Nice! I'm not great with stealth focus farming so I just use banshee on hydron and 15-20 waves usually nets me 50-60k focus.. though that's probably much slower than adaro
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 01, 2018, 06:38:10 PM
A bad run is 30k. A good run (so far) is still about 50k in about 5-10 mins.

It's a bit random as to where the crystal spawns (and often makes you get seen getting to it).

Maxed out my focus for the first time in about an hour or so though.

I'm sure Equinox will be better but without macros (like PCs can use) it looks a bit more effort to sleep the rooms.
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: AkyraStrike on January 01, 2018, 07:55:24 PM
Seems adaro is slightly faster then. Focus is still such a pain, I can't wait until the next patch hits console as we will get the 30% reduction in focus costs.
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 02, 2018, 04:42:23 PM
One advantage to this method is the Naramon focus school gives up to 45% extra affinity for kills with a melee weapon.

So far I'm only up to 20% but that will make it much faster.

When we get the next focus reset, I'm going to get that maxed as well as some points in Power Spike.

I've got all of zenurik unlocked and 3 of the nodes maxed. Just started on naramon, mostly as I've taken a liking to valkyr and a maiming strike melee build
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 02, 2018, 11:47:37 PM
I've never actually used Valkyr. Don't have the Prime version but probably should give it a go as I now have a very strong melee build (including max Prime Pressure Point and Maiming).

Is her range good at all? What level mobs does she start to struggle with?
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: AkyraStrike on January 03, 2018, 08:30:49 AM
Is her range good at all? What level mobs does she start to struggle with?

I have both Valkyr and Valkyr Prime, obviously use prime as she has more armour and energy. I run an 'eternal war' build on her, which focuses on her second ability warcry, which the augment mod 'eternal war'. At base Warcry boosts your and nearby allies melee speed whilst slowing nearby enemies, the augment extends warcry with each melee kill.

She has no abilities to damage enemies at range, so it's all about the melee. But if you get into a pinch, her 4th ability histeria, makes you completely invulnerable and restores health with each melee hit.

I have her built with a heap of armour and speed basically, my stats come out like this:

860.00 HEALTH
210.00 SHIELD CAPACITY
25.50/sec SHIELD RECHARGE
225.00 POWER
1715.00 ARMOR
1.60 SPRINT SPEED 

Armour is the big one there, and there is still room for improvement as I dont have steel fibre maxed out (only rank 9) or primed continuity (only rank 6) so theres another 10% armour and 20% duration. Plus I dont have Primed Vigor (obviously), as I need about 270 more days logged in :troll:

The other thing is that I actually have a full set of Arcane Guardian, which gives me a 20% chance on being hit to give me a 60% boost to my armour for 20sec, and which the amount you get hit in this game, the arcane is proc'ing all the time. So basically when the arcane procs, I have 2135 armour.

I havent really pushed the build into the high sorties, as I tend to use specific frames for specific jobs... or to be honest.. Octavia for most and Loki for spy sorties.. but I can run up to T4 which this set up and barely lose any health.

Then the rest of it comes down to a good melee weapon build. I'm using a maiming strike build, but I just cant stand the Atterax as it's useless if you arent sliding, so I'm using my Zaw, named hokey pokey, and it does the job nicely. Just need Primed Pressure Point to be delivered by Baro and it'll be even better.

As you can see... Ive put a lot of thought / work into her. :up:

Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 03, 2018, 09:52:10 AM
Haha nice. I'll have to digest all that! :)

Did you buy the Arcane? Isn't that like 2k plat?

At rank 6 I would have thought Primed Continuity is barely better than Continuity? I've got mine at R8 and still feel I need to max it.

Need so much more Endo. Want to max Primed Reach and Continuity. Probably flow too but I tend not to use it still.

Yep brought em as I used some PS store card I was gifted at xmas to purchase some platinum in the recent plat sale. Got a full set (10) for 500p. Guy wanted 800p for em but I said no thanks and he dropped em as he said he'd been trying to sell for 6 months and no one was interested.

At rank 6 I would have thought Primed Continuity is barely better than Continuity? I've got mine at R8 and still feel I need to max it.

Yep, thats pretty much why I have it at rank 6, still better than normal continuity, but if I push it higher it means I wont be able to use it on several frames and would need to spend a day or 2 forma'ing a lot of my favourites to make it fit again... which I will do at some point haha

Need so much more Endo. Want to max Primed Reach and Continuity. Probably flow too but I tend not to use it still.

I have Primed Flow maxed, its fantastic on caster type frames, 800 odd energy on banshee or ember is great haha. I couldnt bother waiting and brought a Primed Reach and have it at rank 8 at the moment. I have about 30k endo and could max it (and at least rank up primed continuity another few ranks) but Im holding the endo for now incase we still get primed pressure point from baro.. though I'm likely to get impatient and just trade for it at some point.

Tell me about how you build/use Octavia to do Sorties?

Just about to level her up.

Build is fairly standard:

Aura = Corrosive Projection (though energy siphon is good too)
Mods = Narrow Minded, Transient Fortitude, Intensify, Overextended, Primed Continuity, Primed Flow, Streamline, Stretch (not currently using an exilus mod, need to forma her and then use Power Drift).

Play Style (for Sorties) = Activate Metronome (ability 3) and crouch in time with the music to go invisible. Throw out Mallet (ability 1) and Resonator (ability 2) and watch the rolling music ball of death kill everything while you stay invisible and safe. If you're doing alright for energy use, throw in ability 4, Amp, as it extends the range of the mallet.

Just keep an eye on the timers and continuously refresh abilities, especially metronome / nocturne (invisibility) otherwise you'll get 1 shot by just about anything from sortie 2 onward.

I solo everything but spy or assassination sorties doing this. Spy I just use Loki Prime obviously, and assassination depends on the boss.

I've been playing in the North America region recently and get a lot more full groups. There's usually a bit of latency but better than playing solo for the harder content (like Sorties).

I've been smashing Akkad to level up a bunch of weapons and frames that have been sitting there at 0. Nearly hit MR18!

I use my Atterax to kill most mobs, which helps level the frames fast, and anything the others kill helps my frame and primary to level up. The primary and frame tend to hit 30 around the same time. Getting loads of Relics and credits at the same time.

Farmed the crap out of relics over the past 2 nights and aside from amassing 3k ducats, I've picked up a number of vaulted parts (dual karmas, Dakra, hikou, Nikana, vasto, vectis, mag, ash and nova parts to name a few) just a shame they're all parts and none are a full set. I have farmed and sold 3 mirage prime sets though along with a few other things.

The game really doesn't hold your hand in any way at all.. it can be very overwhelming but it does get to a point where it all just clicks and makes sense.. if you have the patience to get to that point.

Still not up to 2nd dream yet :(

Honestly, the second dream quest is the single best piece of content in the game.. it's crazy how late in the game this quest occurs.. then the follow up quests the War Within and to a lesser extent Chains of Harrow are both good as well.

When you get to Uranus, at a certain random point during a mission something will happen (spoiler free explanation haha) and Lotus will give you a quest called "Natah". Completing this quest is the first pre-requisite to The Second Dream (as it directly leads into it), for the Second Dream you need to have completed Uranus and unlocked the Junction to Neptune.

I would honestly say to just about anyone playing to play up to at least Neptune (and do all the quests along the way) first before you really start grinding out specific things. This advice if for various reasons, first and foremost, after you complete The Second Dream and then the next quest, The War Within, the way you play will change a bit and add more depth to both the game and the story / lore within the game (seriously.. its a huge "oh wow.." kind of moment and really makes a lot in the game make sense after that point).

Ducats are always a good idea, even if you just scrap together enough to buy the primed mods Baro brings. For early game I suggest farming Io on Jupiter (defence mission), you'll get plenty of relics that way.

Baro is coming back this weekend, not sure what he's bringing as they brought us into line with the PC folk so we no longer have advanced knowledge, I'm hoping they still play catch up on the Primed mods we've missed and he brings Primed Pressure Point this week.. if he does, then that mod alone is basically mandatory to have in the current meta.

Yep you'd cash in big time with that one, I've seen a +range +speed +slash selling for 1000p in trade chat (not sure if it sold though). To be fair the Atterax doesn't really need a riven to make it god like, but that is a nice riven to help diversify the build.

My favourite Riven I have is for my Zaw (Plague Kripath) that has +Range +Speed +Damage to Grineer... third stat is meh and when I farm more kuva I'll probably do some re-rolls to try to improve it, but for now range and speed means I can drop berserker and have a range of about 13m with primed reach on.

Also a shame that the Hate isnt a more popular weapon as I have a riven for it thats +melee damage +crit chance +crit damage.
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 12, 2018, 09:05:19 AM

Same, slight drop in attack speed with the riven over berserker, but the extra range is just so much fun.

I have Hate, and the riven makes it quite strong, but it just cant compete with things like the Atterax / Soliac or Polearm Zaws / Lesion / Guandao  / Orthos Prime.

In the last 3 days I've basically been doing nothing but running void fissures (while leveling frames / MR fodder weapons), I've started to get quite a nice collection of vaulted parts:

Weapons / Sentinels
Boar Prime Receiver
Carrier Prime Carapace x2
Carrier Prime Systems x 2
Dakra Prime Handle
Dual Kamas Prime Blueprint
Dual Kamas Prime Handle x3
Hikou Prime Blueprint
Hikou Prime Pouch
Kavasa Prime Band
Nikana Prime Hilt
Soma Prime Blueprint
Vasto Prime Receiver
Vectis Prime Barrel
Vectis Prime Receiver

Warframes
Ash Prime Chassis
Mag Prime Chassis
Mag Prime Systems
Nova Prime Blueprint
Nova Prime Chassis
Nova Prime Systems
Nyx Prime Systems
Saryn Prime Chassis
Saryn Prime Neuroptics
Saryn Prime Systems
Trinity Prime Neuroptics
Vauban Prime Blueprint
Vauban Prime Chassis
Vauban Prime Neuroptics

Also a heads up that a patch just hit PC, so we'll see it on console "soon".. that is changing where to farm certain (standard) frames...

Quote
Excalibur from Pluto to Mars - meaning Lieutenant Lech Kril now possess Excalibur parts
Frost from Mars to Ceres - meaning Lieutenant Lech Kril/Captain Vor now possess Frost parts
Trinity from Ceres to Pluto - meaning Ambulas now possess Trinity parts

So long story short.. if anyone doesn't have Trinity, go and farm her immediately! Ambulas is probably the most painful farm to do, so getting her now will be strongly recommended.

Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: Auldar on January 15, 2018, 06:47:11 AM
I've usually done exterminate missions. You also need a dragon key with a negative that doesn't cripple your frame too much.

I like bleeding or decaying on my Rhino Prime as he has as lot of health and shields and iron skin means he doesn't take much damage anyway.
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: AkyraStrike on January 15, 2018, 08:13:12 AM
I'd say do Orokin Derelict Exterminate, whilst capture might seem quicker, it actually keeps spawning enemies after you capture the target, which can make searching for the vault door annoying. In exterminate, once you hit the exterminate limit, enemies stop spawning.

As for dragon keys, suggested frames:

Bleeding (Reduced Health): Frost as he has a lot of shields if modded right, Inaros can be good as reduced health on him just takes him to 'normal health'. Though my suggestion is someone like Nezha, his overshield easily compensates for lack of health.

Decaying (reduced shields): Easily Inaros or Nidus, they have no shields anyway so no effect. But other tanky characters can do it too.

Hobbled (reduced speed): This one is just more annoying that harmful, fast frames like Volt or Nezha, though I usually equip it on my Valkyr as I have her modded to 1.61 sprint speed.

Extinguished (reduced damage): Put it on anyway, the rest of us will do the damage anyway ;) (though someone with a form of CC or Trinity can be good as they'll still be useful.)

Honestly, they aren't that much of a challenge anyway, spend more time just searching for the door than worrying about what the key is doing to us.

Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: elrast333 on January 15, 2018, 07:48:46 PM
alrighty, i'll build a few ODE keys.  If we're doing a clan run, should we have all 4 keys among the team members?

any how many can we burn through in a single session anyway?
Title: Re: Warframe
Post by: AkyraStrike on January 16, 2018, 07:14:45 AM
I tend to just have 1 of each dragon key built at a time, and replace it when it gets used. It only takes a minute to build a new one. Keys are 1 time use so if we find the door and it matches your key then it's used. If we can get a fourth (will see if Tobor will join in) then it'll be 100% chance of opening the vault

I take Mesa to many Sorties these days. She can just kill everything. If someone has a Frost I'm pretty much safe. This doesn't work in all modes but is my default frame.

Mesa is a god. I typically use her on the plains when doing the high tier bounties. The only thing I don't like about Mesa is not having a melee equipped.

Nice! I'll have to take Trin and some of my other favourites into Captura and have a play with the settings.

Her passive ability..

Mesa has improved proficiency when using secondary weapons, and gains a health bonus at the expense of not using a melee weapon. The stats are:

+10% fire rate with dual wielded sidearms.
+20% reload speed for one handed sidearms.
+50 health when a melee weapon is not equipped

It's not a huge bonus, but every bit helps haha

Haha I didn't even notice!

I wondered why some Mesa's had 50 more health than me (I don't use shield or health mods).

Given how strong my Atterax is I don't care about 50 more health TBH even though it's about a 15% increase. Shatter shield usually keeps me alive for what I use her for.

True, it's not going to make a huge difference at end game, I just got use to doing it earlier on and now remove the melee out of habit.

Nice! Always good to get some catalysts or reactors. Plenty of ayatan statues or endo will come in time. Lately I've had 3 ayatan statues and 2 pistol riven mods... personally I'd love a legendary fusion core but I think the drop percentage is something super ridiculous like 0.18%

Limbo can be very useful in certain missions if (and its a big IF) he is played right. There is no more hated frame to see in a squad than a bad limbo.. in a squad.. a bad player can just hamper you.. but a bad limbo can slow down a mission, frustrate you, and just downright make it un fun.. so.. be very careful with how you play him ;)

I finally decided last night to start the process of leveling up my Primed Continuity (its rank 6).. doing so involves forma-ing just about every frame its on.. so last night I forma-ed and re-levelled to 30; Banshee Prime, Titania, Oberon Prime, Volt Prime, Nekros Prime & Octavia.... and I know I still need to put at least 1 forma into Valkyr Prime.... I honestly dont want to see Hydron again right now :troll:

From the official forums:

Weíre starting 2018 off strong with Plains of Eidolon Update 22.8.2! The build has been sent to cert and includes a hearty cup of additions, changes, and fixes from our mainline update (22.6.0) all the way up to Hotfix 22.8.2.

And when we say hearty, we really mean chunky - Hereís a beefy list of things you can look forward to in this Update:

4 New Bounties: Ghoul Purge!

Ghoul threats are on their way! New recurring bounties feature the Ghoul monstrosities. Help defend Cetus and destroy the Ghouls.... but their destruction may not be permanent! Expect the Ghouls to re-emerge regularly.
Ghoul Purge will introduce 7 new Grineer Ghoul Enemies and Variants.

Focus 2.5:


New Weapons and Cosmetics:


Invite Players to Your Orbiter and Customize your Personal Quarters!

Warframeís shared-world experience will expand to your Orbiter with the option to invite your friends to come aboard! To make room for your squad, the Orbiter will be expanded further by adding the new Personal Quarters, which includes:

To receive the new Personal Quarters Segment Blueprint, you must complete The War Within. Players who have already completed the quest will receive the Blueprint automatically in their inbox. So if you havenít completed the quest yet, nowís your chance to get a head start before the update goes live! Editor's note: Chains of Harrow is a prerequisite quest to play the Apostasy Prologue quest, so do that too if you want a headstart.

New Achievements


Gara Mass Vitrify changes*


*Gara is still relatively new as far as Warframes are concerned but since her release, weíve found (and many players have found) that an invulnerable and almost impenetrable barrier doesnít allow for a very engaging gameplay experience. The above changes aim to stay consistent with Garaís glass theme while also making Mass Vitrify more interactive. While some of you are already aware of these changes from the PC update, we urge you hold your feedback until after youíve had a chance to test these new changes for yourself. Thank you!

Volt Changes


And much more:

How did you build your Zaw? What components?

Iím wanting one with good reach and Crit chance like my Atterax but did read recently that the best use of one of my plague zaw pieces is actually a rapier built for hybrid using CO (which I donít currently have). Apparently that kills up to level 250 mobs (although i donít really play endless modes that high).

Not sure which way to go. Kinda like having a different option with a different focus on it for focus farming with maiming strike.

My zaw is Plague Kripath, Plague Bokwin and Ekwana II Jai.

This is a polearm that has intrinsic viral damage from the plague kripath, plague bokwin increases damage but reduces speed, then ekwana II jai increases status and speed.

It's basically a super powered viral damage version of lesion. My build on it is a typical condition overload build, but I have a riven for it that does +range +speed +damage to grineer. I do have a secondary build set up with memeing strike and it serves it's purpose there too. The range on it is the best part, it's about 13-14m of reach.

Here's a good zaw builder site if you want to play around before comiting to a build: https://semlar.com/zawcalc

Nice Iíll have wait until I get back.

Looks like weíre close to a Formorian invasion soon. Hope itís before Sunday!

This was the thread I was reading that was suggesting a Rapier instead of Polearm for the Plague kripath.

Iíve never made a zaw or a CO build. Have a read and let me know what you think. I still think I prefer a polearm but nothing seems to have the range of my atterax :P

Fingers crossed its this weekend as the update next wednesday will kick off the ghoul event and I dont want to have to split farm both.

This was the thread I was reading that was suggesting a Rapier instead of Polearm for the Plague kripath.

Interesting.. i have spare Plague parts, I might build a rapier with CO and see how it scales and then keep the polearm for memeing strike due to the reach on my riven making it OP.

EDIT: so research indicates that people recommend  Plague Kripath + Peye + Ekwana Jai II or Ekwana II Jai. Ekwana II Jai if you want status and flexibility to only use 2x 60/60 mods, or Ekwana Jai II if you want crit but will need 3x 60/60 mods for a condition overload build... though brozime's build prefers Kwath Grip and Ruhang 2 weight, which is damage and damage... I think I'll go for Plague Kripath + Kwath + Ekwana II Jai... decent damage, decent speed and the flexibility of not needing 3x status mods for a build. I'll work on this tonight and report my findings.  :up:

i know its the way game is designed, but its so annoying that once you've got a mod drop, you start seeing it much more often.

at least I now have a single sword aura (dual sword auras were dropping like candy way earlier though)

Ok so I farmed the resources and built the parts for my plague kripath rapier, levelled it to 30 and gilded it. Just need to level it back up to 30 again now and then test it out.

Just need 2 norg brain to make my tier 2 amp. Also if anyone wants a new archwing, the Amesha parts are all finished researching in the dojo. Building mine now

Video comparison of my polearm zaw (plague kripath+plague bokwin+ekwana II jai) vs rapier (plague kripath+Kwath+ekwana II jai) running a condition overload build (only slight differences) and then maiming strike on the polearm. I think the rapier slightly outperforms the polearm on single target, but the polearm hits more due to reach, will probably use both for different purposes.

Thanks for that. Do you think as the mob EHP increases the rapier will get stronger?

I think so, using the rapier in the sorties today felt like it performed better than the polearm, again mostly single target. Also both those builds lack primed pressure point so that would take the time to kill down significantly too.
