This guide is no longer valid with the removal of Infested nodes.

 

 

Hey everyone,

 

I've been having a blast on Palus recently. The clan and I discovered what we like to call "The Fast Room".

I'm sure we're not the only people to find this out, but it's extremely good for leveling up Warframes and weapons.

 

So, I've decided to write up a guide on the Fast Room, how to farm it, and some other little tidbits.

 

I used to be an avid farmer of Kappa, Kiste and Cyath. But, those are extremely boring, and haven't got anywhere near the potential that the Fast Room does.

Goodbye Cyath, hello Palus!

 

Let's begin

 

Palus is a high-level Survival mission found on Pluto

Spoiler

 

What weapons and Warframes will I need?

Spoiler

 

Why is it called the Fast Room?

Spoiler

 

What does this room look like?

Spoiler

 

What do I do when I reach the fast room?

Spoiler

 

What kind of rewards can I expect?

Spoiler

 

Some other pointers

Spoiler

 

There we go, a quick guide on farming affinity on Palus.

This guide isn't complete, I have to leave for work in 15 minutes, so I busted it out.

I'm making a video version on this method as well.

 

Since U11, my performance has gone down the drain. No matter what settings I used, I would drop to 5 FPS, which doesn't make for a good video.

I got the same framerate (without recording) on 1280x720 low as I did with 1920x1080 maximum. Which was sitting around 23 FPS.

 

Usually on 1080p max, I get around ~70 FPS. Something weird was going on today.

 

Anyway, let me know what you think. (remember, this is incomplete)

Well, that's true. The best place on Palus to lvl-up your WF and wp.

 

For example:

42min, 3 players (Nova, Nekros, Vauban), w/o hangar place.

P.s. nice work! ;)

The spawn rate in that room is definitely awesome. Been doing some runs for keys there and got a good amount of exp, too.

Great effort in making this! One thing though, that I may have been wrong about the entire time, I thought that kills made by others in your squad resulted in a 25% affinity split amongst all equips (1 warframe, 3 weapons), regardless of what the kill was made by. Is this true?

This map is a great location but just a little warning, going past 20min can be bad at the moment. Solely for the fact there is something wrong with the engine and can cause massive fps drop and sometimes lag out players, due to the sheer amount of drops that get generated (worse with necros).

Heh, thanks for the feedback everyone. <3

 

If my performance issues somehow fix themselves, i should have a video up tomorrow.

If not, then...i'll just have to wait.

Good method but one of the people you play with admits to pirating.

Pretty good. Got 50k exp for all 3 of my weapons in 25 minutes since I was Nekros spamming desecrate and not killing. Not sure if it's better than Kappa just yet, though it's a lot easier.

Ah, er, thanks for letting me know. 

Removed :P

I haven't played Kappa for a long time, tbh.

After discovering Cyath, Kappa just felt so slow.

 

Since U11 hit the XP rewards quite hard, I can only imagine that it's slower now.

Lol you just made me want Vauban. I would love to solo this instead of doing it in squads.

Haha, soloing would probably be pretty fun.

 

Though, if you're going for XP farming, it's not the best option. It'd cut the spawn rate down way too much for it to be efficient.

True but some solo players work better by themselves than in groups. :P unless those solo players grouped up together that will be pretty cool. Telepathy FTW.
