  1. Tenet Arca Plasmor is kind of a bad example though, that thing already tears apart Grineer with the right setup. Otherwise, I am always fine with more (viable) options for modding, though I know there are some people wouldn't want it for many reasons (mostly it being a bandaid that doesn't solve the actual issues) 

  2. So, first things first: The new meta.

    Viral and Slash/Fire right now is the way to play. Also, AoE weapons in the primary slot (usually with high Crit Chance and Hunter Munitions and Viral), Support in the Secondary (usually some Status Spreaders) and a high slash melee weapon (Kronen Prime, Nikana Prime, Nami Skyla Prime etc, always Blood Rush and Weeping Wounds. Don't bother with the slide attack meta anymore, maiming strike is worthless and try to exchange Berserker for Primed Fury.) 

    The best guns in the game are from Liches, namely Kuva Bramma, Kuva Zarr and Tenet Envoy in the primary department, Kuva Nukor and Tenet Cycron in the secondary department are kind of the main meta, but Cedo (Primary), Ignis Wraith (Primary), Epitaph, (Secondary) are great, too. These are the standard recommendations though and you're better off finding your own favorites imho (especially because DE loves to nerf what's popular). For Melee weapons, most are great. 

    Liches you find on regular missions on Saturn and Sedna. Sisters, well you need to kill Treasurers (they appear randomly after a while) on corpus missions 30+ and use the medals you get from them on the golden hands. Everything happens on that specific tileset btw. After using the Zenith Crowns and completing Level 1 on the hands, a sister spawns.

    If you need more fire power, complete the star chart, do arbitration for Glavanized mods and ask Teshin for Steel Path. Enemies are pretty bullet spongy there but you can get some need Arcanes for you guns there.

    Eidolon hunts you do for regular Arcanes. You do them instead of raids. It's a bit complicated, so watch those Youtube tutorials.

    Try to Level 5 Necralisk (Deimos is now there instead of Orokin Derelict) and Fortuna (Venus). Opens some great content such as the Orb Fights in Orb Vallis (for Exploiter you need Diluted Thermia from Thermia Fracture event which regularly returns) and Underground Vaults with nice loot and Necramechs on Deimos. Again Tutorials are your best friend.

    Now the elephant in the room: Railjack. It gets improved pretty forward, put on the mods you would think are good (Cheap Shot is a must to have I think), level up intrinsics by leveling them, put on the weaponry and RJ-Equipment you like. You really don't need an absolutely min-maxed RJ for high level content to work.

    And learn the prices on trade chat! I can't stress this enough, but especially on console trade people have becoming super stingy with their plat and you probably have some rather rather valuable items as a returning veteran. Do not let them leech those out of you!

    That is pretty much all there is aside from completing the MR and Focus.

    Hope I could help. 

  3. First, this belongs in Trade post. This also makes clear if you're on what Console/PC you are. Yes, this makes a large difference in the price categories.

    Second, it kinda misses the Crit Multipliers, Corinth P is kind of THE Crit Shotgun in the game so you want CC and/or CD for it to be truly valuable. Also, with the introduction of Primary Arcanes, raw Damage has become kinda obsolete. Finally, the puncture looks bad ont the first look and for many this will lower the price, but since you're dealing slash damage with Hunter Munitions, this will actually be more effect against armor (which is kinda nice, considering Sentients are going to be a thing again in a few months). 

    I wouldn't be too optimistic about the price, 150-200 seems like a very good deal, especially on the stingefest that is PS/XBox-Trade chat...

  4. If I determined one thing about Warframe tierlists, it's that they are (what surprise) entirely subjective.

    This is really reinforced when talking with my clanmates. One thinks Inaros is a bad frame because of lack of shield gating, for me he is a safe house until Level 300. On the other hand I consider Ivara outdated. But try to say that aloud in these forums and the twelve Ivara mains come to her rescue. If you ask anyone in my clan who is the strongest frame, you are most certainly going to hear Octavia, but in these tierlists she NEVER goes out on top.

    So yeah, always take these tierlists with a grain of salt and try to make your own picture of them. Each frame has their weaknesses and strengths that get blatantly more obvious depending on playstyle.

    Does anything else in the game even use Oxium? And if there is, do they even use more than 200 of it? I think at this point all my Oxium goes to Helminth.

    As far as I am concerned, Vauban Prime costs like 6000 Oxium and every time you build Auroxium Alloy are pretty much the largest consumers of Oxium. And good handful of other things are also pretty expensive on that

  6. While I do think a more competent AI would make the mode more bearable, it is far from the only issue Defection has. I mean it already starts with its name, which pretty much describes what this game mode is.

    DE hasn't moved Harrow Systems without a reason. Because I don't know anybody who likes this mode. The rotations are one of the slowest in the game, the squads are, as you already said, braindead, and after a certain amount of rotations they are pretty much doomed as they get one shotted by everything with no proper way to defend them. Also, escort missions in video games in general belong to the worst kind of missions. So, the problem is not a small element, the gamemode is just fundamentally flawed and imho it deserves to face the fate of the raids: taken out, never to return to the game.

  7. With The New War coming in a few weeks, Sentients and Operators start taking the spotlight more. And connected to that Eidolon as well. When killing Eidolon you get a large amount of regular Eidolon Shards, that unlike their Brilliant and Radiant counterparts cannot be used for focus. You use them only for Paracesis and Rank-ups at the Quills. After that they are trash that you can't even sell. And once you completed your focus, the same goes for BES and RES as well and focus points you earn afterwards.

    So, my request is: Please give Eidolon Shards and Focus Points some kind of evergreen use.

    Thank you kindly.

  8. Seems like a mixture between Sparrow Racing from Destiny 1 and Mario Kart, anyway I dig it. Any type of content for K-Drive is a good thing, there is too little incentive to actually use K-Drive.
    Only problem is that it is connected to Conclave which nobody really plays (well not nobody, just not enough people to actually enjoy). Warframe is a PvE focused game and when we talk about content it should be based on that. Or Warframe needs a complete PvP overhaul, which I would be completely on board with when done correctly, but which is unlikely.

    Anyway thank you so much for your proposal. Anything to give K-Drive the attention it needs is great and your ideas have great potential.

  9. Ambassador: "difficult RNG", you guys should go into politics XD

    "Removed Intensify from Mid-Level defection rotations", is this the point where we finally get the opportunity to bargain to not get Vitality or Ammo Case as as a rotation reward on Hydroid anymore? Please revise the rotation rewards for all endless game modes a bit. Pretty please ;(

    A little feedback on Yareli. She is still a rather disappointing frame, she lacks proper synergy, she is too squishy and her crowd control is still more of a crowd chaos. Hate to say it, since I dig her design, but she needs a more in-depth revise later down the road...

    Aside from that, thanks for the service, good bridge till the New War, looking forward to whats next.

    You do know that Charm's double loot effect stacks endlessly on its self and affects items like Vitus Essence, Steel Essence and Toroids?

    Before the Update that changed Essence farming, players would let their Essences stack on the floor and wait until their smeetas proced the double loot buff multiple times before grabbing the essences, this would allow them to easily collect over 200 essence at a time. It was common to see players showing screenshots of mission summery with 1~3K essence collected.

    Hot take: I don't find Charm problematic. It doesn't trivialize/take away the challenge from the game. It cuts down the grind and I always consider that a good thing, especially considered that now the grind for Steel Path has become on the verge of unbearable if you don't have a booster. I instead would like to see Charm usable on all companions instead.

    About the survivability, yep, the way companions (except Vulpas) are now, they feel annoying on Steel Path and, if we talk about Robotics, completely  useless due to their fragility. Thing is you're not the first one and not the last to promote enhancements in that regard. What we need is a full makeover for companions, but that is unlikely to happen unless a big important Youtuber (*cough* Shy *cough*) makes a video about it...

  11. Chroma allows you to deal ridiculous damage with guns and gunblades. He is also great for profit taker and Eidolon. If you want a frame to fill some kinda important niches, Chroma is the way to go.

    Wukong is one of the most versatile frames and great for general gameplay. Also, his extra lifes are neat for arbitration. If you want a frame that is good to great for a lot of content, you should pick him.

    But honestly? You should try to ready as many frames as possible for battle, as there is a lot of content in the game and you want at least one optimal frame for each. 

  12. I only think they should either improve single target weapons or create content that favors them, as it stands AoE and Melee stands head and shoulders above.

  13. Kinda misses efficiency/energy. As Nidus you are constantly using your abilities to stay alive. You use your Larva to pull the enemies together and use your first ability to gain stacks. Umbral mods are a must, yes, but you only need so much power strength to keep your stacks up and the damage reduction of your link as high as possible. And you don't want too much Duration, since you want to recast your Larva as often as possible and your link isn't going to stay that long with how fast we eliminate enemies these days.

    You might wanna trade your last ability for breach surge (Wisp) since in combination with the stats (high efficiency, somewhat high strength, somewhat high range, lowish duration) it works really well and helps getting more damage and CC.


    Umbral Intensify + Vitality + Fiber

    Level 4 Fleeting Expertise

    Level 4 Streamline


    Transient Fortitude (maybe level 8 instead of 8) 

    Primed Continuation (since 20% Duration is a little too low) 

    Alternatively, you can use Augur Secrets instead of T. Fortitude and Augur Range for Primed Conti if you care more about Range than strength and you're fine to sacrifice 20% duration (which is honestly okay with Nidus).

    Also, if you have it, Primed Sure Footed has become kinda obligatory for any tank/CC frame, use it on your Exilus.

  14. The main issue in my eyes is, there is still a large divide between single target weapons and AOE weapons/melee. Yes, you can make 90% of the weapons work perfectly fine. But that takes a lot more work and resources.
    Why put up some ridiculous setup just to make the Burston Prime or Sybaris work, when you can have the same result (enemies dead) with far less expense by using Bramma or Kronen Prime? 
    I think it is often times a question of convenience and efficiency. And considering how much of the content in which you get the best loot is so grindy, it requires you to either be efficient as heck or have no RL job. And because it sometimes takes up that mich time, we need our equipment to be efficient as heck.

    Imho, we don't need Aoe guns or Melee to be more powerful, but single target to get on the level of the other two.

    I’m seeing a lot of answers for “Should I use prime’s smite mods?” And not what I asked. Sorry if my question was misleading, but in simple terms, I meant: “Are the normal version of smite mods good enough or should I skip them and get the primed variants?”

    Use them until you can exchange them. Why bother with the worse version of something if you have the better version?

  16. As you already said yourself, you don't need them to do ridiculous amounts of damage. The primed smite mods are more of a cherry on top, if you really need the big numbers.
    Generally spoken, as long as you know what you have to do you can achieve high damage with pretty much any weapon. Thing is, it is a lot less annoying getting high damage and kill rate with e.g. Kronen Prime and Bramma than with let's say the regular Bo or Burston Prime.

    In the end it's a lot about convenience not damage I would say.

  17. "Wisp Prime most anticipated" This made me smile, considering she is my favorite frame. There are few frames that offer so much versatility. Seriously, depending on how you mod her, she becomes a completely different frame. And unlike Gara, she doesn't need too specific resources and setups to be really great.

    I would have expected Sevagoth to be higher on the list though(especially considering Grendel and Garuda exist, that a VERY niche). Yareli on the other hand is no surprise, she is a terrible frame and needs a complete overhaul.
