"This is my show, my audience! I call the shots!"

—Kela De Thaym
Kela De Thaym is the final boss of the Sedna system. Bloodthirsty and sadistic, De Thaym owns the combat arena known as Rathuum, where would-be defectors are forced to fight for their freedom against Kela's Executioners, to the delight of her audience.

She can be found on the mission Merrow. Standing well above her subordinates, Kela is as agile as she is fierce, leaping from platform to platform while launching salvoes of rockets and grenades. After defeating her and finishing the mission, you receive either Saryn Helmet, Chassis or Systems blueprint, and will also drop an Executioner-themed mod as well. She has a chance to drop an Orokin Cell upon death.

Judgment PointsEdit

To face Kela De Thaym, players will need to earn judgment points by fighting in Rathuum Arena on Sedna. There are currently four Arena of increasing difficulty:

  • Undine: lvl 20, rewards 5 points
  • Nakki: lvl 40, rewards 10 points
  • Yam: lvl 60, rewards 25 points
  • Vodyanoi: lvl 85, rewards 25 points

Players will need to own at least 100 judgment points to fight Kela, and 50 points will be consumed in the process.

Appearance and AbilitiesEdit

Kela De Thaym appears as a very large female Grineer with brown armor and a rocket launcher that fires multiple rockets at one time. Her main attack consists of launching rockets towards players, or calling down an orbital strike when she takes too much damage.

Aside from her launcher, she also has the ability to deploy armored Rollers and their Sentry variant, the former of whom will also continually spawn in the lower level of the arena.

StrategyEdit

Entering the Arena:

  • After making your way to her personal Arena, a floor with 4 circular pads will drop down in the center.
  • Rollers will come out of tubes in the walls, clear them first.
  • All players must stand on the glowing circular pads in the center and shoot the green lights that appear behind the spinning object on the wall in front of them.
    • If more roller spawns, Frost's Snow Globe can help slow the rollers, or to push rollers back.
  • A coordinated team can all target a single spinning disk with each player aiming at a specific disk which will mitigate missed shots and reload times. Another option is to use a weapon with a lot of spread and aim at the middle of the disk.
  • When all disks are destroyed, the floor will raise to the 2nd level, where there will be a center platform (the one players standing on), a inner ring and 4 corner platforms.
  1. Phase 1 - Fighting:
    • Kela will land on the center platform, knocking back players, then begin to jump around while deploying Rollers and their sentry variants.
      • You can avoid the knockback by jumping in the air and aiming to slow fall or jumping onto the inner ring or the corner platforms. Some warframe ability's casting animation may prevent the knockback if timed properly, such as: Frost's Snow Globe just before she lands, Valkyr's Hysteria, Loki's Invisibility (more to be confirmed). Unless player want to melee, it's best to just jump away as soon as her dialogue starts.
    • One can effectively control the rollers with no effort whatsoever by utilising an ability such as Ember's World On Fire, Loki's Invisibility turning this boss fight into a much simpler 1 on 1.
  2. Phase 2 - Orbital Strikes:
    • Once she is damaged enough, she will leap back behind the safety of her control room and initiate an orbital strike, which cannot be stopped. The orbital strike will home in on locations where the players stand. In this phase, either jumping around or simply walk or sprint along the inner ring should prevent you from being hit, this can be easily done if you're soloing as the strikes are very predictable.
    • Limbo's Cataclysm can protect your team from the orbital strike. Frost's Snow Globe with Steel Fiber maxed and a variety of Power Range mods can protect your team from the orbital strike but will need to be recast after each strike to replenish the durability of the Snow Globe.
    • Once the strike is over, she will start a countdown to another one, unless players stand on the center and repeat the process from the first stage before the timer runs out she will not jump back into the arena. If you have trouble fighting her and is in need of energy or ammo, you could use the orbital strike phase as your advantage to farm the rollers for some before shooting down all disks.
    • Completing this will cause her to jump back into the arena until damaged to a point again.
    • The orbital strikes are considered ground AOE only, so aim gliding in mid air is a valid way to avoid them.
  3. Phase 3 - More Fighting...
  4. Phase 4 - More Orbital Strikes:
    • The bridges on the inner ring will drop leaving 4 small platforms behind. Again, jumping from one to another to easily avoid the orbital strikes.
  5. Phase 5 - Final:
    • After stopping a second wave of orbital strikes, Kela will become frustrated and angry and come down one last time (to avoid from being knocked down, look at the control room, she'll land on the platform about 1s after she leaves at the end of the orbital strike phase).
    • She will use Rip Lines to move quick around the arena, taking perch on the walls until she is defeated.
    • When avoiding her missiles, try not to kite by jumping around on the corner platforms, not only they are hard to reach with basic jumping range and risk of falling into rollers, the missiles are also homing and the player will still take damage as they will explode close to them upon hitting the wall.
    • If she's constantly jumping from walls to walls, go to the center platform and shoot her with any gun, proper timed double jump should allow you to avoid most of her missiles (they should fly pass beneath you), the missiles comes about every 2.5 seconds, try not to be greedy and you should be able to kill her without much of a problem.
    • Warning: Limbo should avoid casting any abilities toward the end of the fight, otherwise mod drops are not visible and the drop indicator will indicate it's beneath the floor or in the wall.

When defeated she will drop the mod reward which will show up as a ? until the player completes the mission.

TriviaEdit

  • According to the Lotus:
    • Kela has great influence in the Grineer Court; her assassination would create a power vacuum and stabilize the system.
    • She extended her term after the mandatory military training for more than a decade, showing her battle experience.
    • Built by the Sisters for combat, much of her body has been replaced with augmentations.
    • She keeps an entourage of highly trained Grineer marines with her, suspectedly as much for entertainment as for protection purposes.
  • As of Update 18.10 Kela received a new model, voice lines, and dialogue, as part of Operation: Rathuum.
  • As of Update 18.10 she is considered to be the last Grineer boss to receive a major revamp as all of the Grineer Bosses had received major overhauls within their characters & designs.
  • Along with the Jackal, Raptor and Captain Vor, she is one of the few bosses that do not have constantly regenerating shields. Instead, her shields only regenerate when her health drops to a certain point.
    • Potential Bug: On Xbox One her shields were constantly regenerating.
  • Kela gives the same amount of affinity as a normal Grineer Heavy Unit.
  • Prior to Update 7.11, Kela had no limit to how many Rollers she can have actively deployed, creating the potential of a sea of Rollers easily overwhelming and stunlocking players.
  • Prior to Update 8.0, her picture was also used for Kril's taunts due to a glitch.
  • Kela was the first female assassination target.
  • Like Tyl Regor, once a player enters Kela's arena, it becomes impossible to leave until the fight is finished.
  • If Manic(s) are present before the boss fight and not killed off, it is possible for them to teleport into the arena and fight the player.

BugsEdit

  • If an Ash uses Teleport on Kela as she teleports up to her safe room, they will sometimes be teleported up with her. When she teleports back into the fight, the Ash player is teleported out.
