    Before you start reading the following wall of text below, I apologize in advance for any misinformation and information that I may have missed.

    With that said, stealth in Warframe has undergone several changes, for both good and bad. This however, will mostly point out my problems with the current mechanics of sneaking around the solar system. Here are those problems:

    • Freshly Spawned Stealth Penalty; Back when the AI was still quite oblivious to corpses and enemies dying right next to them and Focus was still new, there exists an alternative method to farm a large amount of affinity with little time spent other than Draco's Interception. That method was to run Exterminate missions with Invis-Frames (Ash, Ivara, Loki) and a killing weapon of…

    Sorties not Sorted

    February 2, 2017 by Aestersidhe

    These damn sorties... Been running off and on for 2 weeks now since RL happens... stupid work and family... I am so tired of holding out both hands at the end of the run, waiting for a glistening purple riven and as RNGesus descends his 8 bit cloud in a beam of channelled light from the DEHeavens... he squats down and takes a giant steaming 24 hour credit booster in my outstretched hands...

    I am not one for ragequitting, much, but I was very tempted. If it werent for work today I probably wouldn't have quit at all and just kept going, maybe farming Kavat genetics again, think im at 7 of 10, Wasn't super invested since I didn't have enough slots, but then I was graced with a couple of Rivens I didn't need in the first week so I got enough pl…

    Crossroads

    February 1, 2017 by Boomfly

    Warframe is currently standing on some fascinating crossroads. A lot of people feel bored or furstrated about the game or annoyed at how others feel. I decided to make this post to bring back some hope as the game is approaching a very interesting changes even though it's currently dealing with a lot of issues as well.
    Due to the powercreep overtaking warframe the nature of the game shifted a lot and the multitude of new systems and workarounds brought us to a situation where after years of providing solid content warframe earned the need to posses a beta title, which is quite surprising and somewhat worrying, but I think it's just a cocoon we're waiting to spawn our wings out of. What we need is to make the choice of a clear design directi…

    Archwing

    January 21, 2017 by Gabethetennotrump

    Now I understand a lot of people groaned just reading that name, and that's what I wanted to talk about. DE have made numerous attempts at "fixing archwing, but most people still find it boring, or just to hard to control. I am one of these people, that's why I think DE should overhaul archwing altogether, it's such an overlooked game mode, I mean the idea is there, just the execution is... Poor. Any ideas on what could be done to revive this lost game mode???

    A New Kind of Melee Build

    January 7, 2017 by Nyb2725

    Ever since the Shadow Debt event, there is no doubt that melee has jumped from being arguably the worst way of dealing damage with weapons to being one of the best. In the few months after that event, multiple new builds have sprung up for melee weapons that make them some of the highest scaling weapons in the game. Recently, one specific build that differs greatly from the norm (it uses no elemental mods) has sprung up that makes one very specific type of weapon extremely powerful.

    Here's the build on the Atterax. Disclaimer: the build is VERY expensive. 

    https://goo.gl/VPuAPN

    Now, at face value, this build seems trash. There's essentially only one damage mod in it. However, all that means is that the upfront damage is very small. The genera…

    Active once again

    December 23, 2016 by Ezioprez9709

    After months of not playing Warframe, I've finally decided to start playing it again. This means that not only will I be active in Warframe (PS4 version btw), but I'll also be on the wiki frequently. I was desperate for a real challenge after blitzing through Destiny for days on end, so coming back to Warframe was on the horizon for a long time. Expect to see me on here regularly from now on.

    Build working in Update 19.5 PC (23/12/2016)

    Build working in Update 19.5.7.1 (13/01/2017)


    Ember is mostly known for her WoF, which is annoying and not end-game viable.

    I started looking for a way to make her not only good against high-level enemies but, most importantly, fun to play.

    The setup is similar to others that might have been suggested by others already, but the performance is on a whole other level thanks to the particular combination of equipment and abilities I focused on.


    The build revolves and is made viable by a melee weapon which has been buffed in a previous update, so let's start from there.


    Twin Basolk.

    After the buff and the new nightmare mods, they can reach 100% status with just 2 dual elementals + drifting contact.

    The Alt-Fight

    November 26, 2016 by RavenCorus

    In comparison to many of you, I am still a noob, a fledgling, a puppy among wolves. Still, I love talking with you. When I was introduced to this game, I quickly noticed that people often cling to their choice of frames and tools. At first, I thought that Frost Prime would be my "main". I was a bit stubborn in thinking that Frost, Dread, and Redeemer was the best combination in the game, and that nothing could be better. After realizing that I haven't even unlocked half of the frames, my dedication took a staggering impact.

    I hated Limbo, now I love it. I hated Loki, now I love it. I hated Trinity, now I love it. The way I play is drastically different to the way I used to, and it makes me want a new game within this game. According to the …

    Here i will be posting the riven mods that i have gotten so far (barring the first one which was a crap mod for the Vulklok) along with their videos i have made for them.

    (Note: As of December 17th, some of this may be outdated)


    First off, my opinions on Riven Mods in general. Initially, i hated the idea for the most part, mostly because of how much RNG was involved. Besides the first mod you get from the quest (which can be a mod for sentinel weapons, unfortunately) Riven mods are currently only awarded from Sortie missions as a possible reward. After doing 3 so far and not getting a single one, i think it's fair to add that to the first issue i have with the mods.

    Second, the weapon that the mod is for is randomized, meaning chances are if …

    If you played the game for any longer period of time you probably noticed that the surface micro transaction model of warframe isn't great. Aside from cosmetics, there's no point to buy anything that affects the way you play the game, as most of what warframe has to offer is the carrot on a stick chase for the new shiny thing.

    When I saw the riven mods I was a bit baffled. I mean, DE reads feedback. I don't expect them to not be aware that people are just getting sick of constant rng. Many people sooner or later drop out because warframe is just too demanding of their time. So they know what Riven mods are and they know what type of response is going to come from them.


    When designing a weapon or a power for a game, you have to look at a few …

    So over the past few days we have been receiving multiple bits of information on the War Within. Recently a whole lot of information has gotten out on Twitter and other forms of soocial media. Obviously we can all see what some of the fan channels know and what they have been telling us but it is limited for obvious reasons. We've seen the new tileset, mission types, and a few new weapons and attatchments.

    However there is a lot of other content that we've seen through devstreams and other sources that we have not seen and may not see until a later update. I want to share what we know so far based on what bread crumbs have been fed to us so far.

    Pets of Prey

    November 7, 2016 by RavenCorus

    I like Kubrows and Kavats, but it seems like there is little diversity in companions, as opposed to the sentinals. The species are certainly different, but you still only have the choice between one or the other. There could be more kinds of companions to bring around, like birds, or like little aliens, and that got me thinking.

    Imagine being able to have an infested themed companion! It wouldn't just be putting infested armor on your already existing pets, it would be an entirely new pet. I already have a fun idea for what it could be and how to require it.

    You're in an invasion, when you hear the Phorid screaming in the distance. You dash into its lair and appear on the other side of the room with a dead Phorid lying on the ground, mangled…

    I've been enjoying trying to figure out the Grineer and Corpus bosses political affiliations since I began the game.

    So far, it seems to me that most of the games bosses lean toward the authoritarian areas, and libertarian characters seem to be characters allied or sympathetic to the Tenno (like Darvo or Teshin).

    I really can't wait for The War Within, because I am really expecting a bit more political development in the system. Could the Grineer and Corpus actually work together to fight for something in their mutual interest? Could someone like Sargas Ruk become a vigilante for the sake of fighting a more personal battle with Alad V? These are the things that come into mind when I imagine the possibilities of the characters in the future.

    A Stalker, A System

    October 21, 2016 by RavenCorus

    I haven't seen an assassin in a week, despite playing for hours daily.

    I have a Stalker, Zanuka, The Grustrag Three, and three syndicate Death Platoons who say they're gonna fight me, but none at all have shown up. I see the good in having their spawn rates low obviously; not everyone wants to fight a corpus machine made of mangled warframe or a trio of mutated and crazy grineer every five minutes. I think I know a semi-reasonable way that DE could make them a bit easier to come by which allows the player to have some amount of control.

    Obviously, when a tenno is hopping planet to planet, it would be hard for an assassin to hone in and get to us quickly.

    Currently, our vengeful little friends have a set spawning rate like stalkers 1.5%+ (0.5 …

    Ideas

    October 17, 2016 by RavenCorus

    I've only been playing this game for two months, and I am certainly pleased with the experience.

    I was trying to think of some things that be added to the game, and I thought of some things.

    Sometimes, I really need to use a specter while I'm doing excavation or devense missions, and I noticed that they never really go to a place that I want them to be. I figured it might be really helpful to be able to actually direct the specters to stand at a specific spot, instead of just leading them to a general area and have them stay. Also, especially in excavation, it could be supremely useful to have a specter pick up an item for us. Imagine going solo on an excavation and directing your specter to pick up power cores from the ground for you while …

    Using 1000 Forma

    October 11, 2016 by Azutsuki

    I never thought that I would hit 1k forma used, since I was just forma'ing items that were unique or that I liked. I came to realise how close I was when I made a notepad file a few months back with all my items in it, just because I was bored. I think I had 750-800'ish forma used at the time, so I thought I could aim for 1k forma since I was so close anyways.

    Here are the current stats:

    • Total Forma Used: 1010-ish
    • Warframes: 120
    • Primaries: 363
    • Secondaries: 243
    • Melee: 206
    • Companions: 34
    • Sentinel Weapons: 28
    • Archwings: 5
    • Archwing Primaries: 11
    • Arching Melee: 9
    • Here are my items.


    Now my next milestone is maxing out every item in my inventory, maybe I'll even max out many of the same "family" items that I skipped. (e.g. Gorgon, since I have Prisma/Wraith)

    I have been playing warframe since a week after they hit open beta, So almost 3 years at this point. I have 1,238,190 Mastery (Rank 22) with 2,764 Hours in game as of me writing this. Despite being high rank and pretty invested into the game, anyone who views my profile in game (superbot34) will notice that the "most used" gear is also the most mediocre or even average, and the stuff that tends to be called the "best" stuff is normally the stuff i use the least.

    Comment Clutter

    October 9, 2016 by Jamvaru

    There seems to be an inordinate amount of comments coming from 'A Lone Tenno'.

    I have even seen a comment from 'A Group of Lone Tennos'.  I'm not sure what that is, I forgot to click on it, but it was clickable.

    Do you agree that comment posting should require a login id?

    It is relatively simple to get a login ID with wikia.  I don't see how this should be a problem for anyone.  I don't have to log in again as it is persistent.

    Perhaps people would either not clutter up the threads/pages with irrelevant comments or they would think twice about what they do post.  It is hard enough to try to follow comments on pages without 'A Lone Tenno' cluttering things up.

    Is there a way of doing a poll?  I don't see it.

    The Vacuum Within

    October 6, 2016 by Sterma albatros

    So, it's finally here. The first update since I started Warframe where I genuinely feel as though DE made a mistake. The Vacuum Within is, in my view, an ill-thought bandaid to a genuine player issue.

    The problem arose because the majority of players used Carrier and its 12m Vacuum exclusively. Other than a few difficult missions (where I use DethCube with Sweeper) I have only ever used Carrier because Vacuum is so immensely useful and because otherwise I would have to choose between missing out on drops or slowing down my gameplay and staring at the floor. It's not a matter of 'git gud' or 'being a casual' as people on the forums seem to imply - I just don't like the pace of the game for me when I don't have carrier equipped.

    Devs, Please.

    September 24, 2016 by RavenCorus

    I was introduced to this game about a month ago by user Iceburn250.

    In my time playing, I've had a lovely time trying, failing, winning, and discovering.

    There are a few things that I figured I might point out, in case this hasn't been brought to the dev teams attenition.

    1- During invasion missions, I've heard Grineer yelling "Tenno skoom!" when I was fighting on their side. It seems strange to have what is effectively a team mate calling me scum while I'm saving their life. It isn't really a problem, just something I thought was weird.

    2- After The Silver Grove update came out, I heard Ordis say "Did you fuse your mods, operator? Did they.. anger you in some way". Since the update added endo, we don't really "fuse" them now right? It seems l…

    For over a year, perhaps even 2 year at this point, i stopped caring about pushing guns and warframes to their limits and only going for the highest possible content, while using weapons i didn't really liked but i had to use as they were capable of clearing the enemies i was forcing myself to fight. I instead started going back to weapons i forgot about like the kraken, realizing that with just the right flick of the mouse i could get both shots to land on the head at decent ranges and the sound felt satisfying when i killed them with said headshot. I hear the "crunch" and i feel physically satisfied.

    That rarely happens with most weapons i use in warframe. Even how fast a weapon fires can affect if it feels satisfying for me to use. For e…

    Alright,I know you guys have made several points and perspectives on the Interception mode.


    In case you were wondering what gear I have,here they are:

    Warframes:Valkyr

    Primary weapons:Tigris,Hind,Paris Prime

    Secondary weapons:Azima,Aksomati,Seer(this one made the Earth Interception mission ridiculously easy)

    Melee:Broken-War

    So,erm, the Seer must have been the key.

    Becuz that was how I managed to whack all 4 points.

    BUT, the point here is, can one solo Tenno complete an Interception mission, WHATEVER GEAR THEY HAVE?


    When it comes to maps,Grineer missions are the choice.

    But the Corpus? They may have the enviroment to their advantage.

    But what they DON'T have is their forces.

    New relic grind?

    August 21, 2016 by Erlo68

    Ok, was just making some fissure runs and then it dawned on me! Don't know if it's already confirmed or not, but when they let us keep the relics containing vaulted parts (Mag Prime + Weapons) does that mean that they will make new relics for every new prime stuff they add?

    If that's the case, then we are going to have soooooo many different relics (provided you did not use all relics containing freshly vaulted parts) and we will end up having like 30 different relics for every aera... ascending trend.

    But my biggest "problem" with that would be the fact that i can't instantly start farming new prime parts they just introduced because the first step will be to go and grind those frigging relics. That will cost so much more time, even further…

    So, I recently started Warframe back during the start of Saryn Prime Access. Due to the Nikana Prime looking cool as shit to me, I decided to buy it. After playing for 6 months and spending a dick load of time screaming for stuff in trading, I got my hands are a pretty good number of weapons. Then I notice something.

    I found out that the new weapons are getting way too powerful in contrast to the older weapons, especially in raw numbers. Also, with the upcoming release of the Gelatine Prime (might have spelt wrong) and the Tigris Prime, they are hinted to have really bizzarely high numbers, if what is shown in all these videos are true. My question is this, if the trent of releasing stronger and stronger weapons continues, will it reach a p…

    They're virtually impossible to solo, and nobody likes them anyway.

    Come on, hardly anyone can manage 4 control points all by themselves.

    And if they TRY to match up with a squad,they usually get no result.

    'Cause like I said, no-one likes them.

    Now,apparantly someone said the best way to defeat enemies and save your control points is to NOT kill them,but instead inflict rapid debuffs on them, like Disarm, Confusion, Slow, blah blah.

    Unfortunately,I find no point in that.

    For starters, they'll reach the Control Point ANYWAY.

    Disarm? They still have a weapon, so they can still make beelines for the points.

    Confusion? Works, but not forever. Plus, it makes enemies KILL each other, which kind of defeats the purpose.

    Note: there is no Tl;DR because pessimistic views cannot be summed up so easily.

    If anyone knows me personally, or has ever bothered to follow me in the past few years on this game and this wiki, they know that i am pretty pessimistic about the game, but i also know a decent amount about it and that i have also been on both 'sides' of players; I started the game casually, i started to want the best things in the game and when i got them (at the time) i realized how empty it felt to use weapons i didn't enjoy using simply because i had to - to be able to kill the enemies to progress.

    You might have not noticed this if you play warframe every day for the past few months or years, but whilst way more pretty the new map is not only a bit more confusing but also far less ergonomic. Finding a mission I want to do or putting out extractors requires lots and lots of scrolling out and in, waving around the galaxy and overall being lost in a sea of lines, which come in three colors (white, blue and black) that don't tell me anything at the moment.


    First of all, where are my tool-tips? When I'm zoomed out and point at a planet, why don't I get a text-box with the level range, factions present, resources dropped and maybe mission types listed as well? This would make navigating the galaxy be at least three times as fast. Instead I…

    If you attack the Goalkeeper while your teammate is shooting, good work.

    - Offense spamming

    Lunaro epic moments

    June 20, 2016 by WhiteFlames

    So this is an idea mainly to encourage people to at least not hate the new PvP mode as we show them some of the great moments we had in our games. Because lunaro is ball game after all and it has that type of enthusiasm like other popular sports such as Football, Soccer and Basketball which even if you don't try to play it because of the bugs and matchmaking you're still going to be entertained by just watching it.

    Now I know that all of us end up with unbalanced matches which either result in massive score for any side, thus I'm not considering any of these moments if the match is unbalanced. However, if you that the match fair enough or you're doing great job even against 3 or 4 people then it's cool to show off your epic moments.

    Welcome to Update: Lunaro!

    This post will be flushed out in the coming nights and days.

    Getting Started

    (How do I join a game?)


    • Lunaro is accessed from the conclave menu in your orbiter or one of the Tenno Relays.
    • There is a small bar at the bottom of the "Lunaro" rectangle button that says "Practice". Click it. Seriously.
    • The game is for any number of players between 2 (1v1) and 6 (3v3).
    • When you try joining a match, make sure your matchmaking settings (Public, Invite, Friends, Solo) are set to how you want them, as Lunaro games will obey those choices. (With the exception of Solo, which will refuse to launch.)

    (Which Team Am I?)


    • It is a Team game. You will be assigned to either Moon (blue) or Sun (orange).

    Void Strategies

    This guide is for reaching Rotation C once of maybe twice on endless T3-T4 Void missions (Defense and Interception).


    • Carrying Gear items just in case like Specters (both Tenno and Syndicates) and Restores. It is recommended to not use the Corrupted Lancer Specter to avoid confusion.
    • A safe way to deal with Corrupted Nullifiers is to use automatic or continuous firing weapons to destroy its bubble quickly.
    • Nyx's Chaos, Oberon's Reckoning and Loki's Radial Disarm with the Warframe Augment Mod Irradiating Disarm both neutralizes the Damage Reduction aura from Corrupted Ancients and the Shield Projections from Orokin Drones, thus greatly reducing Corrupted defensive capacity.

    As you could read from the title, this blog post focuses on Volt's recent rework from and how the Warframe community has reacted towards it. I'm making this blog now because I wanted the rework to have time to settle in with the majority of Volt fans, while also giving DE time to make any last minute adjustments so any info here wasn't sorely out of date. First, let's compare and contrast 'post-rework' Volt and 'pre-rework' Volt.










    So how has this rework affected the player's ability to mod Volt? Well, Electric Shield's rework poses a bit of a problem - Efficiency. If Volt players ever hope to use the Current Shield then they'll need to get rid of that pesky Distance Per Energy thing by building for Efficiency. The Energy Drain Rate can easi…

    Welcome! As a follow up to my last polling blog about some community behaviors or likes/dislikes, i will now be doing a poll list that contains every weapon in warframe. I have broken this up by category (Rifles, shotguns, etc) to make one option from each weapon class an option. Melee has a ton of different categories and i was wresting with the idea of breaking them up by class (fist, dagger, sword, heavy) but decide to be consistent and go with one of each category. That said, some only have one or two options, but it's better than grouping them up like i was going to.

    Please note that this still is a very long list, so make sure you have the time to actually scroll through it all and i don't recommend viewing this on mobile, so don't say…

    Ever wondered how the shields in Warframe worked? Ever though to yourself, Why is Penetration so easy to block with a shield? That makes no sense!

    Well I have an answer for you.

    This is something that I did a worrying amount of research on. I am a Smith, and an Engineer, and I am weird. So, To fulfill all of your questions (Hopefully) I have made & tested this theory.

    Looking at how the shields function, with a good resistance towards puncture and slash damage, and a very bad resistance against impact damage, there is really only one way that they can possibly function. They can't be a stereotypical "Shield", like a large flat sheet, as that would be better against impact damage, therefore they must function by coalescing energy around an obj…

    After doing some testing with that i have on hand i have personally found that the update is a mixed bag. Some people don't really mind, some people are really offended by some of the changes, and others really enjoy it as a whole. To find out how this community thinks, i will include a poll below, feel free to vote.



    In my opinion, there were more positive things to come out of this update than negatives. Including passives.

    The biggest thing to remember about passives is they are exactly that, passive. They add something with little or no effort on your part.

    Here is a video showing some of the passives that interested me the most:


    • Ash: Bleed Procs dealt by Ash from any source are 25% deadlier and last 50% longer.

    This one is very straight for…

    WARNING: None of this has been confirmed by DE. This blog post will contain references to Warframe codex entries, my ideas and speculation on Umbra, and will contain spoilers from the Second Dream. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    We don't know much about Umbra, except that they are supposedly darker variants of the Warframes, the Shadow Stalker uses one, and that Excalibur Umbra will be coming to the Global build first. Recently, I reread the Excalibur Prime codex entry and found a couple interesting lines that could be related to Umbra. This quote has interested from long before the Second Dream came: "We took the twisted few that had returned from that place. We built a frame around them." I believe that this is referencing Umbra in that they were …

    Game Mechanic

    May 6, 2016 by Sandy Stark

    Just gonna say yo, for the fellow space ninjas everywhere.


    Just gonna post something about the game that I love to play "Warframe" the Space Ninja.

    Well just want go to the main event.

    Here's what I'm thinking about playing warframe so far :

    • Basically I love the playing style, hack and slash, but feel bit dissapointed with the game mechanical so far, like when you stealth kill enemy that close to their teammate, their teammate feel like '  dead deaf ' (except when you killing enemies too close to their teammate).
    • Falling from the height not damaging your warframe. Is ok since warframe is like robot that you control or whatever, but even the machine if falling from the height still damaged and broken, so why when we falling from the height is li…

    Patch History

    May 5, 2016 by Brizingr5

    More big projects!

    This time we're working on making a "patch history" for each item in the game. So far you can see what we mean here. We would like to add a section like this for all items (frames, weapons, resources, etc.).

    We are using as a container; see the League of Legends item, Deathfire Grasp, as an example of the end goal.


    For Warframes it made sense to make a whole page, but on other items it doesn't make sense. Instead:

    1. Edit the Patch History section of the page (should be just above the See Also section; if not, feel free to add one if you have a history to add)
    2. Remove the template from within the .
    3. Find any occurrence of the item within the recorded patch history (Google Doc of the patch history from here on the wiki)

    Alright, so, I'm going to try and summarize all the things that I feel about the recent hotfix that did some major negative impacts on the Rathuum's Executioners.


    READ EVERYTHING IF YOU'RE UP FOR IT! Trust me, it looks long, but it's not too significant.


    I am very much disappointed.


    Yes, disappointed, you heard me, and I will tell you why!


    So, Rathuum, it's currently a pretty controversial event, some say that it's just another one of them grindfests, terrible.... Some say that it's terribly fun, awesome, amazing!

    I was one of the latter ones....well, up until the latest hotfixes which NERFED THE SHIT OUT OF THE EXECUTIONERS.

    You have got to agree with me here, eventhough some aspects of the executioners used to be terribly broken and well, leth…

    This current event made me maybe not realize but admit that warframe went a peculiar change over the course of the development. Most of it probably related to the power creep within the game.

    Many people would argue that the damage needs to be taken down, but that's a very limited anwser to an unalayzed problem. The thing is, in the current state Warframe is a...puzzle game of sorts? A perfectionist speed run game. Like super meat boy or dust force. Your only goal is to get through the mission as efficient as possible and there's no real threat to your progress avilable aside of losing time. 

    At the current moment especially in the end game, nothing has a health bar because of the insane damage and nothing is interesting, because the drop ra…

    Hello fellow wikians,

    as most of you who also follow the Warframe subreddit surely have noticed, the prominent dataminer VoID_Glitch recently succeeded after months of hard work to decrypt the entirety of Warframe's mission rewards tables, with all possible rewards and their chances for every mission. You can find his submission on reddit here, make sure to check it out and thank him for this tremendous achievement.

    This warrants the question to what extent we may utilize this plethora of important information on the wiki.


    I'm familiar with the old datamining policies. However, with the publishing of datamined content by an administrator in his blog, I've had the impression that datamining has become somewhat accepted as a method of game mech…

    Maximum Banshee U18.9

    April 22, 2016 by Zxorn

    In sight of her new Deluxe skin. I decided to showcase my multi config Banshee Build. This build is able to mold and specialize her abilities to fit different group and solo roles. Banshee has always been a meta gamer favorite due to her Sonar ability but she does have other perks to offer, including her more recent and impressive solo melee role.

    Though not required, her Arcane Chorus Banshee Helmet can  be fairly helpful (and cheap... for now)

    To start this build off you will need 5 forma total x3, x1 and x1. You can go with less if you only desire a certain config but to gain access to all shown here you'll have to cough up five.

    Oberon rework ideas

    April 15, 2016 by Clank8138

    So, after seeing the upcoming reworks for Mag and Volt, I decided to start thinking of ideas for Oberon's eventual rework (because he needs it.)  Here's what I have so far.


    STATS

    Health: 125

    Shields: 100

    Armor: 275

    Sprint: 1.0


    PASSIVE ABILITY: Ability and melee kills from Oberon have an additional 25% chance to drop health orbs.

    SMITE:

    - No changes, because it's already pretty good

    HALLOWED GROUND: 

    - Slight size increase (5 by 10 meters from 2.5 by 7.5)

    - Damage is doubled (200 radiation damage per half second insted of 100)

    - Heals allies by 5 health per second when standing on Hallowed Ground (Affected by power strength)

    - Gives a flat armor increase equal to 50% of Oberon's armor in addition to it's original 20% armor increase (also increased by power…

    This is purely for my own curiosity but it could serve as mildly useful in the future. Basic questions based on four different categories that may or may not match your as a player. Comment down below how many of these matched you with a score of The number of polls that had options that matched you/23 (two are joke questions)

    Your part is easy, just select the option that most resembles you! No i am not critically analyzing you as a person for choosing any of these options, and Yes, the answer is always Vauban.

    May 17th Edit: After finishing the poll (now or if you already did it) please take this small poll here as well. Thanks

    Maximum Nyx U18.7

    April 3, 2016 by Zxorn

    This is a multi Config Nyx Build able to specialize her CC abilities to suit your needs. The strongest asset Nyx has is the ability to change the functionality of her abilities to bring top end CC to any mission. Nyx is a very rewarding CC frame but also unforgiving. You must learn her abilities well and understand how enemies react to them. If you play her correctly you can finish missions without having ever fired a single shot.

    I would highly recommend investing in Nyx Prime and her Arcane Vespa Helmet if you're serious about making the most of this frame.

    To start this build off you will need x1, x1 then or , either works for all variants supplied here.
