As of Update 19 all blueprints are obtained from the Tenno Research Lab. Blueprints are no longer tradable.

Previously the main blueprint itself was purchasable from the Market for Credits64100,000 and all component blueprints were acquired through the Sortie.


  • Nezha is the third Warframe that was first introduced as a timed exclusive to Warframe China, after Excalibur Umbra and Wukong.
  • In Chinese folklore, Nezha is known as a protection deity and is the third son of Li Jing. He is also known by his title of "Third Lotus Prince", which was bestowed on him following his deification, and his Taoist name of "Marshal of the Central Altar".
    • The Warframe's androgynous appearance is a nod to the deity's youthful appearance, which belied his reputation as a trickster. To clear out any confusion regarding this, Digital Extremes has stated that the Warframe is male. [1]
  • The rings that adorn the Warframe's body (and are used for some of his abilities) are also references to Nezha's lore;
    • The rings on his ankles (which are activated when Fire Walker is in use) are known as the Wind Fire Wheels, ​and allowed the deity to walk in the air or fly.
    • The ring on his back (which is utilized when casting Blazing Chakram) is known as the Universe Ring while the spears summoned by casting Divine Spears seem to be derived from the Fire-tipped Spear. Both artifacts were bestowed by his teacher Taiyi Zhenren.
  • Nezha appears in Journey to the West, under the command of his father Li Jing. In the story, Li Jing's troops (among other forces) are summoned to fight Sun Wukong after the latter rebels against the Jade Emperor. Nezha is among those Wukong defeats after a three-day long battle, but the two befriend each other and Nezha would assist Wukong and his friends during their travels.
  • Prior to Update 19.0, Nezha's component blueprints were obtained via Sortie rewards. Furthermore Nezha was the first and only non-Prime Warframe whose component part blueprints could be traded between players. Since the update trading is no longer possible.
  • The quote "Nezha is a burning thing, and he makes a fiery ring." from Nezha's profile video is a quote from Johnny Cash's song, Ring of Fire.

Nezha has reduced friction on the ground, preserving momentum gained from movement for far longer; this makes Nezha capable of especially long slides. This effect stacks with Cunning Drift, Maglev and Streamlined Form.

    • Instances of damage occur in half-second intervals.

Tips & Tricks
  • Running a couple laps around an excavator can make infested unable to melee it without getting locked in heat procs.
  • Can be used as an escape tool as the heat procs prevent enemies from following you.
  • Tapping the Ctrl key to do a standing slide allows additional control over Nezha's momentum while maintaining the additional speed. In combination with Firewalker, weaving through enemies and around corners can cover large swaths of the map in fire.

Duration:10 s
Range:4 / 5 / 6 / 8 m
Misc:100 (damage on impact)
100% (status chance)

  • Nezha throws his Universe Ring which inflicts 100 Heat b Heat damage with a 100% status chance to enemies upon impact. The chakram will ricochet off enemies or objects a maximum of 5 times before returning. Enemies killed within 10 seconds of being struck by the chakram will release a healing pulse that restores 100 / 125 / 175 / 225 health within a radius of 4 / 5 / 6 / 8 meters to Nezha and his allies.
    • Health restore is affected by Ability Strength, while the damage is not.
    • Heat b Heat status effect deals 50% of Blazing Chakram's base damage per tick over 7 ticks in 6 seconds.
      • The combined Heat b Heat damage dealt to each enemy is 100 on-impact, and (50% * 100 * 7) = 350, resulting in each enemy taking a total of 450 damage over 6 seconds due to being struck by the chakram.

WardingHalo WardingHaloIcon
Warding Halo
Create a protective ring of fire that also stuns and damage enemies who get too close.
Strength:500 / 650 / 750 / 900 (base health)
50 / 75 / 100 / 125 (damage per second)
1.15x / 1.25x / 1.75x / 2.50x (armor multiplier)
Range:1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 m
Misc:1.5 / 2 / 3 / 3 s (invulnerability duration)

  • Nezha summons a fiery ring with 500 / 650 / 750 / 900 base health that encircles himself and provides immunity to damage and status effects. Nezha's total armor multiplied by 115% / 125% / 175% / 250% is also added to the ring's health. Upon activation, Warding Halo is invulnerable for 1.5 / 2 / 3 / 3 seconds. All incoming damage that is absorbed during the invulnerability period is converted into health and added to the ring's health. Enemies that wander within 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 meters of Nezha are continuously staggered and dealt 50 / 75 / 100 / 125 Slash b Slash damage per second. Warding Halo will expire when the ring's health is depleted.
    • Base health, armor multiplier, and damage per second are affected by Ability Strength.
    • Warding Halo's health uses the following expression when accounting for Ability Strength: Modified Health = (Base Health + Armor Multiplier × Nezha's Base Armor × (1 + Base Armor Bonus)) × (1 + Ability Strength) + Absorbed Damage. As an example, with a maxed Steel Fiber and Intensify, a rank-3 Warding Halo will have an initial health of (900 + 2.5 × 175 × 2.1) × 1.3 = 2364.375 before absorbing damage.
    • While active, a health counter becomes visible on the ability icon that tracks Warding Halo's health percentage from 100% to 0%.
    • The amount of health gained from absorbed damage is displayed in the HUD beside Nezha's shield and health indicators while Warding Halo is invulnerable.
    • Self-damage does not contribute to Warding Halo's health gain during the invulnerability period.
    • Invulnerability duration is not affected by Ability Duration.
    • Stun radius is affected by Ability Range.
    • Slash b Slash damage instances immediately affect enemies as they enter the stun radius.
    • Status effect immunity includes crowd-controlling effects such as knockdowns and staggers. Energy drains from Ancient Disruptors, including the small amounts of energy they drain with each melee attack, are resisted. However, Eximus energy drains and the speed reduction caused by the mucus of Tar-Mutalist MOAs are not resisted by Warding Halo.
  • Warding Halo protects Nezha's health from damage that bypasses shields such as Toxin b Toxin damage.
  • Allows Nezha's shields to regenerate while active.
  • Blocking with a melee weapon is disabled while Warding Halo is active; the blocking action itself can be performed, but it will not reduce damage taken.
  • Warding Halo will prevent updrafts from fans and other environmental effects from affecting Nezha. This prevents certain obstacle courses (like for Ayatan Sculptures) from being completed.
  • Warding Halo cannot be recast while active.
  • The Cast delay of 1.25 seconds is affected by Natural Talent.

Main article: Safeguard

Safeguard is a Warframe Augment Mod for Nezha that allows him to cast Warding Halo on allies, albeit with reduced durability.

DivineSpears DivineSpearsIcon
Divine Spears
Impale nearby enemies on spears that erupt from the ground.
Strength:150 / 300 / 450 / 600 (on cast)
150 / 300 / 450 / 600 (on expiration/deactivation)
Duration:6 / 8 / 10 / 12 s
Range:10 / 13 / 16 / 19 m

  • Spears of light burst from the ground, impaling enemies within a radius of 10 / 13 / 16 / 19 meters and inflicting 150 / 300 / 450 / 600 Puncture b Puncture damage. Impaled enemies are incapacitated for 6 / 8 / 10 / 12 seconds. After the ability duration expires or Divine Spears is deactivated by pressing the ability key again (4 ), impaled enemies are dealt 150 / 300 / 450 / 600 Impact b Impact damage as Nezha slams them into the ground.
  • Impaled enemies are considered knocked down, and thus can trigger melee ground finisher attacks.
  • Cast delay of 2 seconds and deactivation animation of 1 second are affected by Natural Talent.
    • If all impaled enemies are killed before the ability duration expires, Nezha will not perform the slam animation.
  • Enemies performing some animations, such as getting back up after being impaled and slammed, will not be impaled by the spears upon subsequent ability recast if Nezha does not wait until they are fully standing first, but will still receive puncture damage.
    • Enemies not impaled, though damaged by a spear, will not receive impact damage upon ability finish.
  • Impaled enemies ignore nullification. The divine spear will not be nullified, so long as Nezha himself is not nullified.

Tips & Tricks
  • While Warding Halo is active, touching smaller enemies that have been impaled deals a burst of damage greater than that of Warding Halo alone, often resulting in a quick kill.
