  1. Ember is my favorite frame. I have built and forma'd and modded and reworked for WoF. Im only going to say that I'm not happy with that change. However, If Im able to get all of the forma back from the build so I can work her again, I'll be placated.  I've already had to rebuild her twice at my expense so getting the 7 forma returned sounds like a fair enough trade off to me.

    I'm not sure what you meant.

    Armor types that don't effect armor? 

    It might be just my somewhat poor english, but this doesn't make sense to me.

    Real life armor. The ceramics in bullet vests dont melt to fire but they do heat up. Translate that to the game and fire always makes the NPCs panic.  Maybe not for very long, but you'll see them change their actions just long enough to reload.

    considering that over 80% of the nodes on the start chart do not drop anything worth more than 10k credit ... i don't think we need any new planet for the next 10 years

    The suggestion was that more nodes = more places relics can drop and thereby thinning out the number of relics per drop table

    Heat melts stuff. Heat melts metal for example. Armor is metal so, heat melts armor. Armor is melted then armor is reduced.

    I might as well add that just making enemies more vulnerable to fire wouldn't be useful at all. Since their armor will just outscale whatever dmg you do to them. If you melt their armor -as fire should do- then you can deal actual damage.

    And also your idea would make an arcane pointless. So good job on that one.

    Actually, there are armor types that dont effect the armor but do effect the body inside.

    To the OP: Fire already makes enemies panic. If they are panicked, they arent attacking you. Same as AC reduc IMHO. How? Less time they're attacking you means more damage you can do before they do.  It's so easy to get multiple damage types on all 3 weapons that you can swap to a different weapon to use that. Cor/blast on primary, viral/rad on secondary and mag/gas on melee. Then then there's CP+ your abilities... Im thinking there's no real reason to change anything. Maybe a better balance of the types but no changes to how they work.

    Even with the nerfs that have happened to Ember, she is still my most used. I run her a LOT. It's called adapt and overcome. Instead of changing the game, change your tactics.

  5. With as many relics as there are, the drop rate seems to be diminishing as a result of there being too many per loot pool. Is it time to creat more nodes on planets or even having a new planet altogether? I understand a new planet or new nodes on existing planets would mean having to re-open the Arbitration. Im good with that. Anything to lighten the loot pools from having 20 items. While I think 10 items is too many, I would be ok with that as a cap. I also realize that an easier solution would be to vault more at a time. Im personally not in favor of more vaulting. It takes long enough to wait on unvaultings as it is. I dont know what would be the best idea, but I feel like something should be looked at.

    What say you all?

  6. I have 5 guitars. And there are SO many styles of electric guitars. Flying V, Hollowbody, Les Paul, etc etc etc. Any consideration toward making skins like that? I would probaly buy all of the ones that look like my actual guitars.

    This isn't what I meant to come across, although I understand the how the viewpoint may seem like it. If someone were to come and tell me "scrap Limbo's current kit entirely" I'd be as enthusiastic as you sound in your post. Reminder: 


    Dont get me wrong. If they improve her at all, I wont be disappointed. It's just that I was able to rework my mod set up so I didnt feel as much pain as most. I just dont want to see  them change so much that it's not even the same frame. While Wukong needed that, Ember doesnt. Tweak here, tweak there and she'll be fine. And yeah... Changing Limbo more than shrinking standard bubble size would torque my cork. I think Limbo may be compensating? =D


  8. It's not this mission... it's nearly EVERY mission. Didnt used to be this horrible the room ahead of this is a dead end. I had to go through 3x the map already shown to find the exit and the green dot stayed pointing to the same place thru most of it.  This needs serious and immediate attention.

    Now that Atlas is getting a Prime, I think it would be best for Atlas to get some love. Atlas isn’t in the best spot and while he’s good, he’s a bit strange. I would like to suggest changes to Atlas to make him more accessible to most other player.

    QoL Change 1: Moddable Landslide 

    Landslide should be able to have its own mod build. Being forced to have a stat stick shouldn’t be a thing anymore considering no other frame needs one. Make Landslide moddable.

    QoL Change 2: Make the Rumblers last longer

    Wukong has a stronger and smarter clone as his 1st ability. Atlas only has this but worse. Either nerf Wukong’s Celestial Twin or make Rumblers last forever.

    QoL Change 3: Taunting Walls

    Make the Tectonic Walls taunt enemies like Octavia’s Mallet. Do this and his wall would be a lot better. 

    These are only some changes that can happen without making Atlas completely broken and still make him better. DE, please make some changes to Atlas. He deserves better.

    1 agreed
    2 No. Setting up frames is about choices on which abilities to up and which ones you dont. So no.
    3 No. You can already block well enough and hide behind it well enough as is.
    Does it need help to be more interesting? ABSOLUTELY! I dont play it because it bores me. I dont do support unless it's my turn. And Atlas just isnt "I KEEL YOU!" enough for me. Never been much of a tank, healer or other support type player since I've played so many single player games where you HAVE to be DPS. Make it interesting. Right now, it's just ok. Nothing dazzling. Give the Rumblers a mod like "Guass Speed". That would be HILLARIOUS!

    I was not aware MR30 was a point for end game to start being a focus. I think for now I have accepted it won't exist for some time to come in Warframe, and so seeking challenge elsewhere is fine for me. 

    And yes, I understand the point of having basic nodes locked behind something like the pain point mentioned in your original post, perhaps quests overall need to be reviewed and things of this nature should not be on the path to unlocking the star chart. It's all very complex and that can be the most off-putting thing. Anyway, with some number crunching on DE's part for when new players are leaving we can only hope they will make some positive changes going forward. 

    That's not a bad idea but Im not sure they can do it with the Ropalolyst bing a part of the star chart and needing the node unlocked. However, I believe he was able to drop an extractor without the Rop so... could be doable.

  11. Ember is fine. Ember is and always will be my  favorite frame. Still my most used. Even non prime is still in my top 10 of most used. The numbers may need to be shifted a bit, but outside of that, Ember is good. The 1, if you have duration is a great blockade on doors. Light em up as they enter.

    I've never understood the mentality of Change it" when you can maximize the use of it and go with the idea behind it. I LOVE to use sonicor as my example. Impact weapon that everyone tries to make into something it's not and then walking away calling it garbage. Blast is an impact. Impact mods are nice too. With Impact and blast, I leveled everything in the game except secondaries. 75% of it solo. I've knocked NPCs out of the map with mine WITHOUT a riven. And now that I have a riven for it, it's better than it was before the nerf.

    There arent many frames where you cant maximize them for all of their skills in one loadout. Hence A config, B config and C config. Different skills for different mission types. Exterminate is DEFINITELY 4. Defense and mobile defense is 3. Farming for 'stuff' is finding a hidey hole and blocking the door with 1. (2 is an always thing) Instead of having them adapt the frame to you, why not adapt to the frame and it's abilities?

    Again... I do just fine with my favorite frame. It doesnt need all of what your talking about. And I dont hate your suggestions. What Im disagreeing with is the point of view that implies that you want the adaptation to happen for you instead of you adapting to the frame.

    Fair, I think of these points I agree with 3 and still think the old alerts should exist alongside NW. It is sad to be locked out of weeklies and elite weeklies sometmies and not have an easy alternative route to get nightwave points or the things purchasable from the store. I guess the invasion thing is there for those who want to grind rep, seems too time consuming to be worth it imo. 
    The other points seem more personal and your own philosophy on gaming, not saying they are not valid but considering their personal nature I just could not get behind them as strong reasons for the game to be made easier or changed. Perhaps we are on different paths, I still want an end-game and real challenges, but it seems everything just becomes easier with time instead. I think you gave a nice example yourself, went from 3 lives up to 5 revives now. Also I played most of the game unassisted in the beginning and I quite enjoyed that, learning things as I went along, so very different experiences there for us. Anyway, let's see how the new player experience unfolds over the next few months/years. I do pray it becomes more easier for players to navigate it unassisted and more focus is placed on the story quests and other areas which help newer players understand the core game. 

    Fair points.
    On end game: The fact that we dont have MR 30 yet means there wont be end game for a while. Only 3 more MR to go, but that's still a long way off.
    And DEFINITELY agree with, " I do pray it becomes more easier for players to navigate it unassisted and more focus is placed on the story quests and other areas which help newer players understand the core game. "  The whole post started with the fact that I was startled by how difficult and painful it actually was without focus and a good amp. And with that, the realization of how much we miss or forget from being at top MR and/or having it all. It's going to change my look at forum posts by newbies having issues for sure.

    Defection. Old Events. Old lore. The alignment medal. 

    All forgotten things people wanted to see better of. 


    It's easy to say that DE hasn't acknowledged them because they need to continue to make content, but this has been *years*. My only thought of why is that they are riding on the 'beta' tag as long as they can.

    Do you think it's a possibility that whenever they leave Beta, maybe with New War/ whatever the last quest will be, they will update old content?

    They have revisited old content. What about the update to POE? I mean... they're working on an updated engine. Cut em some slack and give them time. They have revisited a LOT.

    The best thing that DE has going are devs that play. Devs that play (especially the one that's always on about the shadows) see things in the game and think "Ooo... idea!". And sometimes the revisits take less priority. But they have made mention of revisiting enough that we just need to realize how much ADHD is involved here and that it may take some time before "OOO SHINEY!" gets out  of the way of "Hey... I could revisit that this way".

    So I do feel what veterans are crying about content drought.

    Rail Jack is coming... content drought?
    Let's see, things that are planned before the end of the year and things that we've had this year
    Gauss with new mission types
    Wukong  rework
    Wokong Prime
    Rail Jack
    Altas Prime

    And a couple other missions.

    It cant all be new missions. There HAS to be frames, weapons and other MR nabbers. How else we getting to MR30? Im over halfway to 28 and have 1 login weapon to get to have it all. If you're that bored, get a friend to play and do all of the content over with your friend. I would even suggest(dunno if DE approves of it so just an idea) of making another account and starting over. When we have all of the best it gets too easy and we get bored. Starting over gives you a new perspective of how good we have it(only if that's ok with DE- I dont recall anything in the policies about having a second account but that doesnt mean there isnt) Double up on a frame and build the second one with something edgy that no ine is doing. Double up on a weapon that you've wanted to try something else with but cant because it will mess up your meta build.

    At some point, the devs arent responsible for your entertainment any more. There is only so many devs you can hire before it's not cost efficient. You are responsible for your entertainment. If you're done leveling everything and done with everything there is to do in the game including rivens for all of the weapons you use, Maybe you need to play an additional game. Beating your head against the keyboard because there's nothing for you to do doesnt help your attitude toward the game.

    I think DE does better than most with content. Im not going to say 'best' because I dont play enough other games to make that statement. But I've played most of the biggies and DE is better than them about good content vs just throwing something out there. I want good, not rushed. I've watched games die over bad content. No clue how DDO is still running. It's had so much garbage that I'll never go back. Dont wanna see that happen here.


  15. Well, you're wrong.
    The nerf was so that frames cant dip together IE- Hydroid+Nekros+Pilfer dome=3 guaranteed shots.
    Now it's I take a shot then you take a shot then he takes a shot. I have been in kuva farms where 3 batteries and 2 air pods pop from one creature. but more often, all three fail.
    Instead of all 3 getting the guarantee, on top of each other, it's more like I get a shot, then you get a shot and maybe the other guy gets a shot.

    There is still a chance that everyone will pop something, just not the same thing and not at the same time. I dont feel like this is making sense but suffice it to say, you're wrong.

    How old is your son ? Are they the recommended 17+ mature age the game suggests, cos based on what I read, it sounds like they might not be 🤔

    Anyway, "Extreme frustration in having to die repeatedly(NO gamer enjoys that)" - I mean, depends on the game first of all. Some games are designed around dying and learning from fights/boss fights. In other games, this continuous death can mean you are not ready for this part of the game, so go do some other content and power up. And when you think you are ready, come back and try again. 


    Sounds like you are trying to rush your boy through the star chart for some reason, that's great for you guys, but ask yourself why? So they can do Arbitrations seems a weak reason, considering that's not really aimed at newer players. No real benefit in rushing through a proposed easier game to come to Arbitrations and have no sufficient gear to go the distance there as you were carried through everything beforehand and the solo quests were made super easy. 

    The game is not difficult, it needs to be more difficult lol. Sure some guidance could be added to suggest what to do to power up your operator and amp, I 100% agree with that. Introducing a way to build an amp which does not involve using your weak amp against a boss you barely tickle with it is so necessary. The Eidolon loop of use mote amp vs teralyst so you can make a better amp to kill the same boss faster needs a step before it, a way to gear up for your first Eidolon fight which does not involve battling with the Eidolons. Not sure if and how that could happen, but this is clearly a not-great part of the game for players with only a mote amp and nobody to carry them through.   


    1. He doesnt play if Im not playing.
    2. Sometimes Im doing things that even carrying him wont work.
    3. Opening the Map allows him to do all of the NW missions. (he has had a few where if the node is locked, it wony let you run the mission)
    4. Sometimes I have to do things he cant go on. He generally sticks to lower level stuff but knew that was excal(he started with excal) and wanted the upgraded version. so he did the quest while I was doing something else.
    5. He and I both learn games better with the sink or swim policy. I was MR5ish and pulled into an endless with clannies to NPC lv 300. This was when there were 3 deaths per day. Dragging him thru this is much easier on him than it was on me.
    6. To be clear, with as stubborn as he is, Im less worried about him than I am about retaining new players. He gets over it and moves on  to the next challenge whereas I can see a lot of players giving up on the game. I dont want this to happen. I want to see MR 30 and the start of end game where the real challenges should begin,

    I think it's better to bring your son hunting vomvalyst (vom-vom) and take it slowly instead of taking him all over the place

    LOL- Son's pretty independent. He was off on his own for that. The screaming at the computer was what brought me in to see what he was up to. Even before he had the ability to trasnfer thru the frame, some friends and I took him thru tri eidolons so he could get night wave. He also needed Grocdrul and iradite for his launcher so we had him stay in relatively safe areas to farm those while we did the hunt. And yes, I kept hearing "this is boring" the whole time. LOL - But when he finally got the tenno suit, he was greatful for the help. 😃 I just wasnt expecting him to go off on the Umbra quest so soon. And he was stubborn. He noticed after he died and came back that Umbra maintained his damage so he pushed thru, but was very frustrated by it.

  18. When I came back to the game, I was pretty well established. Most frames, all the important weapons, decent Amps. So doing Umbra wasn't an issue for me. Then I set up an account for my son and helped him thru a lot.

    The situation: Trying to get the map opened for Arbitration and having to finsih all of the quests to be able to do the Flydolon. MR10, the Apostasy Prologue opens up. Mote Amp is 7, doesnt have focus yet buit does have a well set up Loki, Ignis Wraith and Sonicor(no kitguns yet). Me with being ahead of the curve when I did it, didnt realize the extreme difficulty of doing it in his position.

    So he goes fail fail fail. Extreme frustration in having to die repeatedly(NO gamer enjoys that) in order to defeat Umbra with his gear. He did it but was ready to quit. I had to reassure him that nothing else in the game was this difficult.

    So after relating all of this, Im looking at the very real possibility that we've lost players due to this frustration. My suggestion is that there be either a quest to get a real amp or adding a requirement that you make and lv an amp to 30 before you can do it. This gives the player the information that the Mote is too weak and that you need some focus established before you will be able to compete against Umbra. It also might end the players having to be carried in Eidolon farms because they dont have anything that will work against the eidolons with any success.

    Just a thought and Idea. What say you?

  19. For the longest time I have been saying that if Linux ever comes up with an OS that can play all of my games, I would never use Windows again. So my question is, Does warframe run in a stable manner in Regata OS?

    Wooo, touchy subject I know, but in light of the recent update and looking at the store, aura forma bundle and eidolon lenses, doesn't seem that big of a deal? However these are extremely rare drops in the game, because people were complaining DE decided to appease the wallet warriors, we already have boosters in game, and I understand the argument of P2W in a PVE game not being relevant however there are people that dedicate time and effort into farming these things, for DE to just pop them on the store and says "Hey guys, give us money and we will give you these rare drops", is quite a bit disheartening, not because I don't want this available to other people, I just don't want to see a habit of DE meeting complaints with "Oh lets just throw it on the store", whats next? Umbra forma?

    Never has, never will and isnt any pay to win in WF. People pay money to support the game, buy things they dont want to grind for or to get fashion items. There is nothing.... NOTHING in this game that cant be had for free that is required to play the game. Not, frames, not weapons and not locations. It may be P2FF (Pay to fast forward) But it's all there toi be had if you grind for it. Elderscrolls, Eve, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Everquest (games I have played) ALL Have content you cant access without paying. Warframe does not.

  21. From what I gather, you're not new to warframe so you know what the point is. We have 3 more MR to get to before BETA is over. So the thing to do is to get your MR up. Doesnt matter if you care about the frame or not. MR after 16 may not lock anything but it does open up rep, trace and trade maxes. Makes things go faster. This isnt WoW or any other game where new content just adds to the finished game. Warframe's additional content is moving toward the completion of the game. Whether or not you see that is irrelevant.

    Had you read everything I said, you would realize I tried it. Universal? Well I gguess it's not so universal when it doesnt work on WF. The solution had nothing to do with any of the suggestion(trolls) that were made. The solution was [ff. No quotes, nothing that was suggested(trolled). Why did I say trolled? Because they were throwing out things they hadnt tried because if they had, like I did, they would have known it didnt work and wouldnt have said it.
