The New Sword Crafting Cost

Recommended Posts

You say its a currency, but there is only one trader who accepts it,  we literally have no idea what he does with it.  

Ducats seem to be essentially a crushed oriokin tech? Why not repurpose it ourselves when we can? 

Currency is a resource,  resources are currency in their own respect. 

If a npc accepted alloy plates as its only currency I don't think anyone would object,  we need a dump for it.

1k additional point to mastery rank
60% sentient dmg
reseting sentient resistance
stylish look
quest item
a important lore sword

nope the price is adequate

PS.
1000k spend
60:platinium for speed up build (Gala + Para) + plats for catalyst and formas
i'm enjoyed :V

PS2. Why u dont cry Baroo Prizes is too high? 500 ducats for armor/mod, etc...

 

Its the first "real veteran reward" (used loosely) since the Umbral mods, cant count Excal Umbra due to getting him at max level at the onset. 

This is more then justifiable for a cost to build, means it really wasnt handed to you. 

Take your training wheels off if you think this is expensive. 1k ducats isnt hard to earn.....at all.

It's not hard to earn at all, but its gonna take a hell of a lot of time to get that many.

Not really, i had about 3k back in July for the Tennocon relay. I bank prime junk and sell it off when ducats are needed (Baro is really only worth it on the Tennocon relay anyways really) 

I still have 2700 ducats, Vets dont have a real use for them unless they want Pedistal Prime or when the next Prisma weapon drops. Baro rarely brings anything really worthwhile anymore, just lool at his 100th appearance "Primed disappointment"

I'll be honest. I'm not really a veteran and I could easily get the sword, I just don't personally feel its worth it. (Will I eventually cave and make it just for the sake of it? Probably but still eh.) The thing that would make it a 'Veteran Reward' isn't even the ducats anyway. It's the eidolon shards, so I guess at the very least DE have given me a reason to care about eidolons since I didn't put much time into my operator. (I like them lore wise, but gameplay wise I'd rather play a robot, infested ninja thing than a kid.)

Pedistal prime doesn't cost any ducats. But the point i am trying to say is that you only get 15 ducats for common drops. Which sucks. So lets say you only get common drops (because if you get a rare drop you really don't wanna sell it (especially for a beginner like me)) 1000=15x 1000/15=x 66.67.....=x   so its gonna take around 67 runs for 1000 ducats. It takes somewhere around 5 mins if ur luckly to complete a mission. So 67*5= somewhere around 300. So around 300 mins if your luckly with the time.

Also can anyone tell me that if it is possible to kill an eidolon with just void beams? Cuz i really dont wanna invest time into fishing so i can make an AMP for my operator.

I mean technically yeah? But the grinding is more something we tolerate because the game's free, high quality and constantly updated. I don't mind the grind but I don't play warframe for the grind.

So the story, gameplay, graphics etc are not "about" the game. Is the game only about grinding? Yes, i understand grinding is apart of the game, but should it really take 5 plus hours to get a melee weapon? Maybe i just don't get this game, because i don't really grind as hard as other people. I remember once i was trying to get hyroid prime and grinded for his relics and then opened the relics only to get common drops, at the end i just kinda use some plat i got to buy his parts. I used 11 radiant relics (I also had to grind for the relic things to make it radiant). Now i just buy parts from people and sell sets and make a small profit for like 10-20 plat.

The sword is fine as is. Cost is certainly within reason and if you don't want to craft it, then don't. Sometimes you can't have everything. Let's turn our frustrations to grinds that are actually infuriating.

Given they just handed us an umbra I'm glad to actually have to work for something. Whether you feel it's worth it or not is an opinion. The cost though, we've seen worse. Flashbacks of Vauban Prime and the Hema nightmare.

1000 ducats in a week is totally doable. So you have to wait a week. If you feel it's not worth the cost don't build it right away. Just put some spare ducats aside and when your ready build it. You dont seem that hyped if you dont feel its worth it. Considering the uniqueness of this weapon with the increase in lvl cap and mod capacity, its worth it IMO. I'm on console and I have my Ducats ready and waiting.

Man this game's so #*!%ing easy already and people STILL want more easy S#&$. You literally run random LITH fissures vs lvl 4-6 mobs go afk for 2 hours and you have enough to sell for 1k Ducats. WTF is wrong with gamers these days? Just run defense LITHs and your Carrier's sweeper will get you your ducats while you browse porn or whatever else you do while you're alt tabbing from Warframe.

How do you go Afk for 2 hours? Wont you have to collect the stuff that drops on the ground and kill the enemies? Wont you also have to pick a cabbage so you can do the next one? And i don't really thing 2 hours is really enough to get 1k ducats unless you are really luck and happen to have 24+ radiant vegetables lying around.

Nah the cells are really easy. Just go to a cell planet and just stay in one place in survival. Enemies will drop them cells. I remember once when we were hunting ackoytles, we rounded 11 cells in one match in 10 mins.

This is a unique case when you are putting a currency into a crafting cost. Ducats are not easy to get, after the new relic system and not old void keys. Ducats fodder is harder and harder to get since you only get 1 prime item per Relics (Taking the Relic Farm can takes 5 Minutes on average) it would take around 335 Minutes or 6 Hours and 35 Minutes getting relics and come up with worse case scenario of getting Commons (Not counting the time opening relics cause it depends on missions).

 

Lets put it this way. If DE comes up with a New Shotgun, and you need to use 50plat as crafting cost, would you do it? Its pretty much the same. You can earn Ducats and Platinum.

 

Either make the Ducats cost atleast 200 (Yes I'm not spending more than 2 rare parts for a single and possibly an MR Fodder weapon) or Change it to use Nitain or Argon instead.

Ducats SHOULD NOT be in a Crafting Recipe, THEY HAVE VALUE!

So does nitain alert, so does kuva, so does mutagen sample, so does oxium, so doest cryotic

and be real dude, ducat is not a currency, it's a resource, that you can farm. It's a valuable resource yes, and have more than one use yes. But you can get it from playing the game, comparing it to platinum is simply unfair.

did it occur to you that every player can choose if they want to craft it or not? at least until the next cinematic come out?

I had about 300 leftover from Baro's last visit. It took me about an hour to get the rest. The last mission I did I got lucky and got two golds and a silver. Still have 200 ducats left over after crafting the sword. 

I just ran captures back to back solo 1.5 - 2 min each time. I did do one Excavation once that mission expired tho. Those Lith C2's come in handy. No Formas, so every run was guaranteed Ducats. Easy grind.

Its not unfair for me. Both have insanely high prices. Or what about people complaining about Vauban Prime Oxium Cost? DE did Half it

So let´s cry enough and DE will change it. That´s a great attitude.

And comparing Ducats with platinum is just wrong in every way, but let´s keep on crying, maybe DE will change it too.

I agree with you, ducats shouldn't be in a crafting recipe and I would not like to see it as a crafting resource in future also the sword is a quest item, every quest items in game are nearly free, So why does this cost so many ducats there is simply no justification for this price.

But still 1k ducats is not that hard to get as for now i'm not gonna farm ducats specifically for the sword nor it's going to be game changer weapon. So, i'm moving on maybe craft it later after i get enough ducats from doing random fissures.

I'ma just put this here "Hema"

There is a clear difference between a bit of effort to grind for and too much effort to grind for

Cant you get 1k ducats in a relatively minimal amount of time and effort though. I feel like its maybe a couple hours of total playtime and you're done. I'm not even sure 5 hours is a fair assesment.(I could be very wrong again as I spent a lot of time running tower keys but never participate in the p2p trading so have a large stockpile of prime stuff) On average it's less than if you were to purchase one of everything in Baro's stock on a given visit.

 

Ducats are also a free currency no one has to spend any money ever for and platinum is a premium currency. Ducats don't actually have value whereas platinum has an actual monetary value.

 

Though I hate ever having to farm cryo because I'm not a fan of the excavation game mode so much so I guess I can sorta see where you're coming from. But 1k ducats isn't by any means unreasonable or really even inconvenient.

What's the problem with ducats?Too hard to get? You get 1000 within half hour when trading, within half or whole day farming, depends on RNGesus.

Not worth the quantity needed? It is subjective as hell, just like I consider Black Panther is overrated

I honestly don't see why people are complaining about this, 1k ducats is nothing, I can get 400 in 30min....

1k ducats is just alright. Any person worth his salt should have high 4 digits to 5 digits worth of ducats.
