Split between day and night, Equinox manifests aggressive and defensive forms at will.

This is Equinox, a deadly duality.

A true Tenno must master the divide between night and day. Do you have what it takes?

Release Date: July 31st 2015

A duality of contrasting forces in a single entity, Equinox unleashes wrath like the onset of daybreak, or draws life to a close like dusk's approach. Shifting between two forms allows her to bolster Tenno strength in light or provide recuperative respite in darkness. Equinox dawned in Update 17.0.

AcquisitionEdit

Equinox requires a unique method to craft: Tenno must forge both the Equinox Night Aspect and Equinox Day Aspect in the Foundry – each of which requires its respective Neuroptics, Chassis, and Systems – before the Warframe itself can be built. Component and Aspect blueprints are acquired by defeating Tyl Regor at Titania, Uranus; the main blueprint can be bought in the market.

The drop chances for each component is 12.91% and the drop chances for each Aspect blueprint is 11.28%, with an expected 21-22 runs to obtain each component at least once and 159±40 runs to be nearly guaranteed each component at least once.

NotesEdit

  • Equinox's Energy Color determines which form she begins with during a mission — light-colored hues has her start in her Day Form, and dark-colored hues has her start in her Night Form. This does not affect her overall gameplay otherwise.
  • Equinox currently requires the most components to build, requiring four blueprints each for the Night and Day Aspects, and one for the Warframe itself. This totals to 9 components.
  • Equinox is one of the most expensive Warframes in credits to build, with the total cost amounting to Credits64‍ 225,000. This includes the cost to buy the Equinox blueprint from the Market along with the cost in constructing a Forma.
    • Equinox is currently the only Warframe that requires a Forma to build.
  • Rushing through all the components requires 300 Platinum. If a player desires to rush all of the components, including the main blueprint, it may be wiser to outright buy the Warframe from the market for 325 Platinum, which saves 15 Platinum for the pre-installed Orokin Reactor and the Warframe slot.
  • Equinox is currently the longest to build of all the Warframes released. Each component to the Day and Night Aspects taking 12 hours, the Aspects themselves both taking 72 hours to craft, the Forma required to build the Warframe taking 24 hours, along with the Warframe itself also taking 72 hours.

TriviaEdit

  • Despite the androgynous nature of Equinox's design, former Community Editorial Coordinator Adam Ma has confirmed that both day and night forms are female.[1]
  • Equinox appears as her composite form (both day and night) in any shared space, such as in the player's Landing Craft, in Relays, or while using Archwings. This form can also be seen briefly when shifting between forms with Metamorphosis.
    • When customizing her appearance, a button in the bottom right of the screen labelled "Metamorphosis" allows players to switch between Equinox's three forms. However, leaving the Appearance menu reverts Equinox back to her Composite form.
  • Equinox refers to a biannual event where daytime and night are of roughly equal duration.
    • During her development, Equinox's separate forms were originally referred to as Anima and Animus, both of which are concepts in Jungian Psychology. They are respectively described as the feminine and masculine aspects of a person's psyche.
