With the new empyrean gamemode coming to warframe this year, a lot of players, including me, are very excited for that sweet new content. What I'm worried about, however, are the rewards this new mission type will bring.
You see, warframe has a bit of a history of making content that doesn't give players a good reason to keep playing (other than fun, but that's pretty subjective). If you want examples, just look at sanctuary onslaught, arbitrations and archwing (which nobody ever plays unless there's some event reward). The last in this list mostly rewards missions with bits of tellurium and mods that you probably already have. The first two both have pretty dilluted drop tables that offer items better grinded elsewhere (relics, endo) and a few exclusives that have such low drop rates, you're better off trading them with plat.
The point is, empyrean should have rewards that both justify the time spent playing it and offer rewards that you can't just farm once, never to come back to it, because if it's only gonna give two ammo drums and some part you already have, people are gonna stop playing as soon as the novelty wears off.
That said, I'm hoping DE will find a good way to reward players for playing empyrean, because it looks like a very unique, enjoyable and possibly challenging mode.
So what do you guys think? What kind of rewards are you hoping to get from flying your railjack? I'd love to know 😉
Tl;Dr: It'd be nice if empyrean had some decent rewards.
