    Now, the Ghoulsaw is not the best damage-wise, but one thing it does do is move you forward. Though not more effective than a bullet jump, it is a valid form of transport for a Nyx with Assimilate.

    Ride forth, my invulnerable psychic sawblade sisters!

    why wouldn't you just use the operator to move faster while having assimilate up?

    I haven't played Conclave in a while now, but from what I recall, enemies in Conclave do have outlines. I think it's related to radar visibility (so it only shows up if you'd appear on the radar, e.g. from firing a loud weapon).

    Then again it's not like Conclave is all that balanced what with PvE bleed-overs cropping up again and again, like the fall-off bug giving Tigris it's full PvE damage values.

    you might be right, but yea only when they do something that puts them on the minimap. I can't remember and I have been avoiding Warframe currently due to some burn out.

    (in a pvp game I would find it far easier to kill a highlighted player and would see it as an unfair advantage, this being a mostly pve game would be a bit different, but would more depend on the developers intention with the games design and whether they're trying to make it hard to see enemies for particular reasons, like if an enemy has camo to blend in intentionally)

    Wow yea that would be nasty in Conclave. However, presumably it wouldn't apply to players. Only to enemy NPCs

    It most likely would, though at least you'd know to shoot at the area that is highlighted blur and keep on shooting until it's not there. :wink:

    rofl true. There has to be a more elegant way to solve the problem. Or maybe it would work, I would have to see some sort of example to know. But I certainly support some sort of option to help

    I'm sorry for your friend, but I'm not sure if I'd be enabling a vision compromised person to stress his eye further just to play a game.

    How about a game of D&D? Or some audio books. I could tell you like 20 ways to adapt around seeing enemies, but there's a myriad of other problems behind that, and I don't think your friend will be better off finding the solution. 

    This is just plain ignorant. As if maintaining minimal options for the vision impaired is "enabling" them. They're not a drug addict ffs.

     

    As OP said, their friend isn't fully blind, (and actually when I adminned/programmed for a MUD, we had blind players who used screen readers, but obv that wouldn't work with Warframe.) Are you their optometrist? Do you actually know what will and won't mess with their eyesight?

     

    Honestly the whole post makes me salty. Why would you even type that and not think better of it before clicking submit reply?

    I am not after anything of significant value - Ignis Wraith is not worth very much. As in it shouldn’t be more than 5plat.

     

    I am happy enough to gift you one if you have something to trade for it. The only thing I cannot accept is platinum, anything else is fine.

    you shouldn't be charging anything. An ammo drum I guess.

     

    OP, contact me in game and I'll give you one for free.

    mate i have a ghoulsaw gelitis (cold+crit damage) no roll, madurai polarity.. im looking for like 500p. 

    Riven sold mate.

    why bother offering it if you are going to go to someone else?

  8. I'm looking to buy a riven for the ghoulsaw and currently it isn't in warframe.market or riven.,market's systems.

     

    I don't care about stats or how many times it is rolled. V polarity preferred but not required. Considering the weapon is awful by most accounts, I don't want to pay like 1000p for the riven, but we can barter/discuss price over DMs.

     

    I have a ton of unopened rivens I can hand off for it, if that is preferred.

    I think the 'login rarely' idea entered common community belief a long time ago under a different system in which it was actually true.  Under the current system I haven't seen any evidence beyond anecdotes.  Under the old system, before it started counting total logins and instead gave rewards based on consecutive logins, there were different reward tables for 3, 5, and 7 days.  All could offer discounted plat but the 5 and 7 days reward lists were expanded with other tasty rewards like Forma, Reactors, Catalysts but also less tasty rewards like warframe and weapon blueprints that were available in the store for credits.  There was clearly a reason then to avoid playing for a day to drop back to the lowest table and avoid drop table bloat if someone wanted a discount.  After the change to login rewards, I suspect the idea that not logging in gives better chance of discount is simply confirmation bias mixed with the continuation of the concept of that being 'how it is' from people who heard it once but didn't know why it used to happen under the old system, or why the reasons for that no longer apply.

    I'm glad someone remembers that. I remember them implementing the daily login system as it is now, but couldn't for the life remember how it worked previously.

     

    I've labored under the same misconceptions in the past, but I really don't think, with the myriad of ways I have done the things mentioned in this thread (logging in, not logging in, buying plat, etc) I started to be unable to see a pattern. There may very well be one, but unless someone wants to do some digging or get DE to answer the question, we can't know.0

    🙄 Do i have to abstain from Warframe for several weeks in a row to prove you that login frequency (maybe spare plat owned too) affects chance to get plat discount coupon?

    No offense, but it appears your reading comprehension is limited wrt this topic. Anecdotal evidence, as I explained in the post you quoted is the exact kind of thing confirmation bias works off of.

     

    BTW I've had periods where I didn't log in for a stretch of time and not experienced anything different. I've had 90p or 4kp and not experienced anything differently. Or when I did, it didn't happen consistently at all.

     

    So my advice is to get a larger sample size (maybe at least a few thousand players, I'm not a statistics person but even I know that is kind of low still,) and use the scientific method to do a study on your statements before proclaiming them fact.

    Playing almost 2 years, have 0 plat (starter plat spent). Sometimes I log in only on weekends, sometimes my play sessions are much shorter than usual, and boom, 50-75 discount coupon on next login.

    Very tempting, but so far RGN is not total pita, cosmetics are meh for me, so if I ever give in, it's because I need inventory slots.

    Okay, Apparently confirmation bias is not a familiar term for everyone. To quote dictionary.com:

    "bias that results from the tendency to process and analyze information in such a way that it supports one’s preexisting ideas and convictions:"

     

    You are predisposed to see causality for things they are unrelated if it supports your beliefs as to how any of this stuff happens. And that includes if you initially get "hunches" about how the algorithm works.

     

    The "proof" people bring up of other players experiencing something similar or their own personal experiences is not the same as actually knowing what the algorithm is and it isn't proof of any sort, either.

     

    Edit: to clarify further, I haven't experienced things the same in five years. If I don't spend money for a long time on plat, it doesn't increase or decrease my chance at 75% off coupons etc, same with not logging in regularly or logging in every day. However, my opinion on this is also not proof of anything.

    Yeah I know.

    Imagine you have just moved into a new neighbourhood. As it happens your friend Lotus has lived in this neighbourhood for hundreds of years. 
    You go out with her first day  and you find a rabid dog. Your friend Lotus says: "Omg, this shoudn't be possible, where did this rabid dog appear?"
    The next day you find out that the whole town is plagued by rabid dogs.

    Is your friend Lotus a liar? Or do we have a narative problem?

    Far be it from me to defend DE's lazy storytelling but Deimos only got "discovered" semi-recently. I don't know when Eris was introduced, but early Lotus may just not know about some of the planets you discover later.

     

    Also yes, she is a liar, so there's that.

    My suggestion is to aim for the "easy" nightmare missions - spy, exterminate, or survival.

    I say spy is "easy" because unlike other special Spy missions, you only have to successfully get one, and in no-energy-mode, you can still use your operator's Void form to at least avoid the sight of enemies, though that does not apply to lasers. (No cheese allowed!) Just be careful you don't get transferrence static while in Data Purging on a Grineer tileset, because the doors will lock in a way you can't get out either til Data Purged or your secure the vault data.

    The harder Nightmare modes don't exactly seem worth it to me, but then again I don't remember what all you can even get from Nightmare modes.

    You get dual stat mods. Things like Constitution.

    -because of this the raknoid queen has no prime, also when first interacting with the helming, it tries to destroy her because it seems her as a threat, so your operator steps in to stop the fight. Helminth will not subsume abilities on to raknoid queen but will allow the over-ride of invigorations to go on her, also there is a special menu for her where you can customize her like making a companion from legs, you can get and equip modifications for her legs, arms, head, and chest, these will change base stats and argument abilities.

    Bit confused as to why the Helminth, an infested entity, wouldn't want to subsume an infested frame's abilities and try to kill it, especially since Nidus is a thing. Or why Little Duck would want to aid the Corpus, etc

     

    Either way, I think you are better off proposing just stats and base ideas for any Warframe suggestions, and let DE decide on lore unless you are more familiar with Warframe lore.

    Well the bigger issue for me is that stuff like Deimos, Eris and the presence of infested across the whole origin system contradicts what is said in the quest itself.

    Lotus acts like "omg this shouldn't be possible, where did grineer find the infested??? *surprise pikatchu face*", but in reality the origin system is full of them.

    Unfortunatelly the quest is a relict of the old Warframe and needs a narative change, because it doesn't make any sense anymore. 

    Yea you know you don't get to deimos or eris before mercury, right?

    i often get 50-75% coupon since i never buy plat. the more you buy plat, the less coupons you will see in game. that's how the algorithm is set. 

     

    1 hour ago, Hayrack said:

    Plat discount coupons you randomly get on login, especially if you login rarely.

    Sources? I've been playing for five years and I can't honestly attest to either of these outside of confirmation bias.

  18. You should just be able to block out any ads with riven links by using the word riven. Right now that doesn't work. It doesn't have precedence or anything, but the amount of spam from rivens makes it not worth bothering with trade chat, neither you nor anyone who would buy or sell from you can see each other's ads.

  19. I mean, mostly what people always seem to want is the Syandana.

     

    I assume these people don't realize that you have to play Conclave in larger amounts and regularly to keep the syandana glowing. It is a very old syandana, too. 

     

    https://warframe.fandom.com/wiki/Celestia_Syandana

    "Every daily challenge completed ignites a single flame on both sides. Completing all weekly Conclave challenges will light up the syandana to its fullest. Every day disables a single set of flames. "

     

    edit: I wonder if you have to do the Lunaro ones, too. hmm.

  20. Everyone always forgets about these but there are also the stim items that can kind of help. They are obtained in the orokin lab (?) in the dojo. They last a few minutes and create an aoe that affects NPC allies, doing things like, for example, making the NPCs faster but physically weaker, (or the reverse.) There are four types, they can't all be equipped though and you can only use 20 in a mission, iirc. So you have to be selective when using them if you want to do long runs. Also, you want all the NPCs with you, because, again, they are an aoe. 

     

    DE could have done a lot better with them, as well as not making it so you can only make 1 of each stim at a time in the foundry, but I often use them on NPC defense targets, and sometimes defection NPCs.
