—In-game Description

The Pherliac Pod is a consumable Gear item. When deployed, the pod acts as a decoy that makes Infested units attack it rather than anything else. Non-Infested units will attack the pods only if the player is not nearby.

AcquisitionEdit

  • This item's blueprint and components can be obtained as drops from the Juggernaut and Juggernaut Behemoth. One random component is a guaranteed drop from each Juggernaut, and the blueprint may also drop as well. Each Pherliac Pod created has 50 charges.
  • The blueprint and components cannot be traded with other players.

Potent Pherliac PodEdit

The Potent Pherliac Pod is an enhanced version made by irradiating Pherliac Pod with Argon Crystals. The Blueprint is only obtainable during The Jordas Precept quest.

NotesEdit

  • Pherliac Pods are a required item to complete The Jordas Precept quest.
    • Potent Pherliac Pods are also required to complete the quest and the blueprint is unobtainable otherwise.
  • Blueprints are not reusable.
  • When used, the Pherliac Pod is thrown to a targeted point on the ground. The Pod has a higher threat rating than players, and will thus attract enemy Infested to attack it instead.
    • The pod will attract all Infested units, including Corrupted Ancients and Phorid.
    • Against Lephantis, the Pherliac Pod will only attract the attention of the scythe-wielding Grineer head during the second phase, which will make it pull the rest of Lephantis' main body to the Pod's location as it attempts to attack it in melee. Otherwise, the Pod has no effect on the other heads, or on all the heads during the first phase.
  • A deployed Pherliac Pod will last for 10 seconds.
  • The blueprint can drop alongside one of the components upon killing a Juggernaut or Juggernaut Behemoth. The blueprint's dropping does not replace the random component.
    • Pherliac Pods blueprints resemble other blueprint drops such as Oberon parts.
  • Non-Infested units will still attack Pherliac Pods, but the pods will not have the same threat rating as on the Infested.

TipsEdit

  • A deployed Pherliac Pod can cause groups of Infested to crowd together, this in turn allows for effective use of AOE (area of effect) Warframe abilities when aiming the ability at the crowd.
    • The above tip can be used in Defense missions so as to deter crowds of Infested from rushing towards the cryopod, while at the same time allowing for efficient use of Warframe AOE abilities.

MediaEdit

  • Infested attacking a pod.
