Research Purpose: Efficency of drop rates on Tethys depending on the time spent.
Warframe: 30lvl potatoed Ash
First Run - Exploring every nook (Time spent: ~30 min)
- 4x Orokin Cell
- 10x Detonite Ampules
- 4x Nav Coordinate
- 349x Plastids
- 2115x Nano Spores
- + a few (10) common mods
- Total Kills: 268
- Pickup Count: 1041
- Spare Parts Loot: none
To make proper comparison, I would have to spend as much time speedrunning it as I spent exploring.
Speedruns: (+time between maps (loading etc) 1 min
- 4 min, 1 detonite ampule, 18 plastids, 1 mod
- 5 min, 2 detonite ampule, 1 mod (one detonite from Spare Parts)
- 4 min, 154 nano spores, 1 mod
- 4 min, detonite ampule, 1 mod
- 4 min, orokin cell, 1 mod
It took 5 speedruns (~21 min) killing Boss only to look my first Orokin cell.
Early conclusion: If someone wants quick Orokin Cell, speedruns seem the best option. However, if more Orokin Cells are needed (ie. Prime Weapons) it seems best to sit a little longer and explore. It was fun making this research, although it is a little poor right now. If you have some experiences with farming Orokin Cells on Tethys, please write a comment. With more people in it, we can make proper statistics!
