Fortuna: Update 24

hubheader.jpg

Fortuna is here!!

It's been one year since we added our first open world: The Plains of Eidolon. Our second world is ready: The Orb Vallis.

Entering The Orb Vallis requires you to first visit Fortuna, a town full of new characters, new content, and new problems to solve! To do this, you must first reach Venus!

Reach Venus!? Our veteran Tenno have had Venus unlocked for years - it's time to go back.

New players might only be making their way there now, but with determination and cooperation, you'll master the challenges of the Orb Vallis in no time. We all lift together!

Enjoy the efforts of all of us at Digital Extremes, delivered here in Fortuna. Your patience, support, excitement, and feedback has made this update possible. We dedicate it to you.

Stay warm on your K-Drives, Tenno!

Onwards from Update 24: More is coming in 2019!

The Orb Vallis landscape is so vast in size and discovery and this is just the first installment of Fortuna content! You can expect more to come next year, including more Conservation species, new Operator Amps that will be available for sale from Little Duck’s offerings, and your chance to take down the ultimate threat roaming these terraformed lands.

THE ORB VALLIS
Located in the eye of a snowstorm, The Orb Vallis was once a scorching wasteland. When the Solaris reactivated the Orokin coolant towers, life reappeared in the Vallis. Giant looming mushrooms sprung from the snow, and four-legged Virminks appeared in the valleys. Through their blood, sweat and tears, the Solaris terraformed this barren region into a beautiful, hospitable world — but the Corpus are destroying its delicate balance in their pursuit of profit.

Due to its terraformed environment, the Orb Vallis fluctuates between temperature phases, which directly affects certain ecosystems within it. The climate ebbs between Freezing and Warm (rather, slightly less cold), which affects the wildlife activity on the landscape. For example, the Eye-Eye Servofish only shows up during warm temperature. Tenno can see the current Temperature when hovering over the Orb Vallis node in the Navigation Menu.

The time cycle between these Temperatures is much shorter than the Day/Night equivalent on the Plains of Eidolon:

  • Warm - approximately 4 minutes
  • Cold - approximately 22 minutes
     

Caves1.jpg

Cave Encounters
Take shelter from the storm within the caves of the Orb Vallis. But not all caves are dormant, Tenno...

New Resources!
The lands of the Vallis are home to many species of organic life. From glowing fungi to mucus mounds, encounter what this unique environment has to offer. Some of the plants require their “fruit” to be ripe before picking, look out for the ones that stand out from the bunch to collect their resource!

The Corpus have also settled into this biodome and littered their own tech resources across the land to be discovered.

  • Mytocardia Spore
  • Gorgaricus Spore
  • Tepa Nodule
  • Thermal Sludge
  • ...and more!

Bounties-2.jpg

In-Vallis Bounties
The weather outside is frightful, but the Bounties are so delightful. A Solaris United Agent who does not miss his organics awaits you OUTSIDE the doors of Fortuna in the Orb Vallis snow. Other Solaris United Agents are dispatched throughout Orb Vallis at enemy Corpus Camps - take control of the Camp to acquire Bounties from them. This harsh landscape restricts Incursions, but there is much to discover!

Corpus-Explorable-Base-revised.jpg

Corpus Terra Variants
Tasked to maintain Nef Anyo’s voracious control over the Orb Vallis, these new specialized units have advanced their attacks, weaponry, and icy attitude towards the Tenno. Stay warm and fight the good fight!

Elite Terra Corpus Variants
To bring a level of challenge to those that want to take on higher level Terra enemies, these level 30+ Elite variants are for you! They have higher Health/Shields and hit with harder damage. 
 

Arachnids-Arachnids-Arachnids!.jpg

Raknoids and Orbs
As you explore the Vallis, beware of mechanical, spider-like machines known as Raknoids. These Corpus-designed creatures range in size and lethality, from tiny Mites to massive, invulnerable Orbs that loom over the region. Fortuna’s brightest are currently researching how to take down these Orbs, but for now, steer clear.

New Alert Levels
The Corpus have synchronized a way to ramp up the fight in Orb Vallis. Your time out in the open world could be calm - or frantic, depending on the Alert Level! You can reach a maximum of 4 Stars which will have increasingly difficult and scaling enemies - can you handle all forms of Robotics and Corpus? Only time will tell.

To increase the Alert Level, simply allow the Corpus to summon more with active REINFORCEMENT BEACONS!

To decrease it, destroy all REINFORCEMENT BEACONS and hide away out of combat.

FORTUNA & SOLARIS UNITED
Down in the underground city of Fortuna, you’ll meet the Solaris: a society of body-augmented individuals who live in debt-internment under Corpus rule. A colony all too familiar with the reality of being “repossessed” — cybernetic limb and organ removal by Nef Anyo’s repo squads. Yet in these cautious times, the Solaris are a hopeful community who pride themselves in their efforts to terraform Venus.

VOX SOLARIS QUEST
Eudico, the once proud leader of Solaris United, has been reduced to serving Nef Anyo under near slave-like conditions to keep the rig jockeys of Fortuna safe. Help her regain her will to fight so that she can stand up to Nef Anyo and bring back the Solaris United resistance.

Completing the Vox Solaris Quest will unlock the following Vendors in Fortuna:

  • Eudico - Bounties
  • The Business - Fishing & Conservation
  • Legs - Moa Companions
  • Vox Solaris - Raknoid Hunting & Operator Agent
  • Roky & Boon - Ventkids & K-Drives

The Vox Solaris quest is also replayable in the Codex!

Fishing_Mining.jpg

The Business - Fishing & Conservation

Meet 'The Business', also known as 'Biz'. This Fortuna vendor is your gateway to two activities out on the Orb Vallis: EMP Spearfishing & Conservation!

EMP Spearfishing!

A new take on the Plains of Eidolon Fishing Mechanic!

The best way to catch the robotic 'Servofish' in The Orb Vallis is with The Business' offering of PULSE SPEARS - tools used to disable mechanical fish! This new type of fishing spear maintains the high quality of every Servofish you catch.

The Business offers 2 variants of Pulse Spears:

SHOCKPROD
Built to recover Servofish without damage. Delivers a disabling electromagnetic pulse after a successful hit, if timed correctly

STUNNA
Successful electromagnetic pulses radiate outward also disabling any nearby servofish

Equip this in your Gear Spiral to begin your journey of catching Servofish in the Coolant! The fishing mechanic here is different - not only is aiming precision necessary, but also timing your Pulse detonation! Land within the red bar to succeed!

 

Your Ostron Spears will still work in The Orb Vallis, but the fish will be damaged. The key is to catch undamaged fish with the specialized Pulse Spears.

There are 13 species of Servofish to be discovered in the various Coolant areas of the Orb Vallis. Some require Baits - be sure to read descriptions to find your very own:

  • Eye-Eye
  • Scrubbers
  • Echowinders
  • Mirewinders
  • Longwinders
  • Sapcaddy
  • Brickie
  • Tink
  • Kriller
  • Recaster
  • Charamote
  • Tromyzon
  • Synathid

Note: Servofish do not spawn in shallow cave puddles! 

Baits

Baits are used to attract certain species of Servofish. Acquire them with Solaris United Standing and read about their uses in the descriptions!

Conservation - Track and Tranq:

The Business is equipped with new gear that will allow you to aid in the desperate Conservation effort of The Orb Vallis' wildlife.

Two key pieces of gear are required for Conservation: TRANQ RIFLE & ECHO LURES:

Your standard issue TRANQ RIFLE can be acquired with Solaris United Standing and equipped in your Gear Wheel. It is used for all Conservation efforts.

Each species has its own ECHO LURE which can also be acquired with Solaris United Standing and equipped in your Gear Wheel. You'll have to progress through the Solaris United Syndicate to acquire some Lures!

  • Pobbers Echo-Lure: Entice and attract nearby Pobbers with life-like animal calls. The Pobbers is most often found around the Mushroom Fields of Orb Vallis!
  • Virmink Echo-Lure: Entice and attract nearby Virmink with life-like animal calls. The Virmink is most often found around the Lakes of Orb Vallis!
  • Bolarola Echo-Lure: Entice and attract nearby Bolarola with life-like animal calls. The Bolarola is most often found around the Mountainous areas of Orb Vallis!
  • Kubrodon Echo-Lure: Entice and attract nearby Kubrodon with life-like animal calls. The Kubrodon is most often found around the Cratered areas of Orb Vallis!

Now that you know the gear, here's how to begin your Conservation Journey:

Explore the Orb Vallis and look for locations on your minimap that indicate last-known animal sightings. Activate the area to begin the sequence. Conserving occurs in 4 Steps which are indicated by Icons on your HUD:

1. FOLLOW: Follow the Trail!

2. CALL: Use the Proper Lure and Pitches!

3. TRANQ: Hide, aim, and shoot! 

  • Bad/Good/Perfect Captures are stressed based, which rises when the animal comes in contact with a player. A quick tranq of a non-startled animal would yield you a ‘Perfect Capture’ - so get down wind and don’t miss!
  • Animals that have been Tranq’d will be invulnerable to avoid teammates/enemies killing them by accident (or on purpose).
  • Helpful tip: Animals can be put into a peaceful slumber by special Abilities like Ivara’s Sleep Arrow and Equinox’s Rest. Animals that wake up from their invulnerable sleep will become vulnerable once again. Timing and speed is your best bet for that Perfect Capture!

4. COLLECT: Collect your specimen! 

  • Resource Boosters apply to Tags procured from capturing animals in Orb Vallis!

Animal-Conservation.jpg

Why Conserve?
In addition to rewarding Standing for each catch, you get treasured items for your efforts. Each animal you successfully conserve will yield you a Tag that can be exchanged for a treasured reminder of your efforts to help the wildlife. From 'Floofs' to a badge, find the offerings from The Business!
 

Kitgun-Build.jpg

Rude Zuud - Zuud’s Murderizers (Kitguns - Modular Secondaries)

Meet Rude Zuud, creator of the “Murderizers”... or more formally KITGUNS! Zuud is a bit of a stranger to formalities, might have something to do with all the static in her head… While she might have a couple of loose screws, that won’t keep you from crafting your very own soldered sidearms at Zuud’s Lathe!

These Corpus-tech Modular Secondaries are crafted using a Chamber, Grip, and Loader. Blueprints for these components are purchased from Zuud using Solaris United Standing. Once crafted, Pistol Mods are the upgrades of choice in your Arsenal.

  • Pax Soar: Reduces Movement Speed while Aim Gliding.

Legs - Moa Companions
Meet Legs, the Moa constructor! At Legs’ Pets & Parts, Tenno can assemble, customize, and name new Moa friends.

Once the Vox Solaris quest is complete, visit Legs to spend Solaris United Standing for Moa part Blueprints! Once you have a Model, Core, Gyro, and Brackets, you can assemble your Moa:

MODEL: The head determines a Moa’s model type by unlocking a unique set of Moa Precept Mods. Once you acquire Precept Mods by purchasing the corresponding Moa head, you can use those Precept Mods interchangeably with each head:

Final stats for all components listed below can be found in-game.

Para Moa:

  • Whiplash Mine: Deploys a mine that tethers all enemies in an area. A brief moment and all enemies still in range get pulled to the mine.

Feel free to switch it up any time!

Legs can Gild any Max Rank Moa to enhance its stats! Your Moa will also reward Mastery Experience once it has been Gilded.

  • The Moa head is the component that rewards Mastery Rank, because the head determines the Model. Gild all Moa Models to maximize your Mastery Experience with Legs!
  • You can also exchange any Max Rank or Gilded Moa for Solaris United Standing!

Howzit, glinty? If you’re looking for a new way to traverse the Orb Vallis, the Ventkids have you covered. Hangin’ with their logical fam in the ducts of Fortuna, the Ventkids get by stealing parts from the Corpus and and running K-Drive races out on the Vallis.

Boon - K-Drive Customization & Races

While you’re grinding your way through Orb Vallis, keep an eye out for Boon, the leader of the Kubrodon Ventkid Gang, who wants to see if your K-Drive skills are up to snuff. Look for Ventkids Icons on your minimap in the Vallis to find various K-Drive Race courses littered throughout the landscape.

Talk to Boon at any of the icons to start a race. The rules are simple: pass through each of the checkpoints within the allotted time to complete the course. 

PLEASE NOTE: Races will eventually be more intense - including 'admission cost' Standing to participate, rewarding Standing on high-performing runs, and even leaderboard rewards! To help us stress test issues, we are NOT launching with 'admission costs' as we do not want to have a high-risk scenario in case of issues. Be prepared for higher risk, higher reward Races in 2019!
 

K-Drive Controls

Aiming (the button you’d use to aim down your sights) is how you initiate tricks. Use it in conjunction with other controls for a variety of results:

  • Aim + Direction + Jump = Small (tap) / Big (held) flip in that direction.
  • Aim + Direction + Select Button  = Directional Dismounts.

Firing (the button you’d use to fire your weapon) can be used to add a grab modifier to your tricks:

Crouch can be used to grind:

  • Aim + Direction + Crouch + Fire = Grab Grind
  • Crouch + Direction + Jump = Air Spins
  • You can also grind on a variety of surfaces in Orb Vallis!

Other commands:

  • Sprint is the boost key, to help you gain speed.
  • Jump can be tapped for a regular jump, or held to charge into a large jump to gain lots of air!

This is only a basic overview of the various K-Drive commands -- be sure to give them a whirl yourself to see what crazy combinations you can come up with.

*Research for the Kreska, Ocucor, and Battacor can be found in the Dojo Energy Lab, or in the in-game Market for Platinum.
 

NEW SENTINEL

Oxylus Sentinel
The Oxylus Sentinel was designed to assist in Search-and-Rescue operations through the harsh landscape around The Orb Vallis. It comes equipped with two Precepts to do just that (*final stats available in-game):

  • Scan Matter: Resource containers within an area  are revealed periodically on the Minimap for a limited time.
  • Scan Lifeforms: Increases the maximum Active Conservation Encounters.

The Oxylus' default weapon is the Multron Rifle! A new Sentinel weapon that fires a burst of armor piercing rounds. Pick up the Oxylus Blueprint by visiting The Business in Fortuna.

Note: This Sentinel requires two open slots.

New Sentinel “Assault Mode” Attack Precept Mod

In an effort to reduce the inventory duplication clutter that came with the individual Sentinel attack Precept Mods, Wyrm, Wyrm Prime, Carrier, Carrier Prime, Dethcube, Taxon, and the newest Oxylus now come with the Assault Mode Mod:  “Sentinel will attack first visible enemy within an area” (*final stats available in game).

  • If you already own the original attack Mods they will remain in your inventory but cannot be equipped with Assault Mode.
  • Assault Mode has replaced the original attack Mods on enemy drop tables.
  • We increased damage falloff range on the Sweeper Mod by 5m to allow it to work effectively with the Assault Mode Mod.
     

General Additions:

  • Experience the chilling distance wails of the Orb Vallis creatures as they succumb to the frigid snow drifts, the ever present hum of seemingly perpetual debt workers in Fortuna, and the many unparalleled new voices of the Solaris colony. Open your ears to the incredible new vast array of sounds! This also includes of 16 minutes of original music - from the Ventkids to Orb Vallis itself!
  • A new Fortuna UI Theme is available! Preview, purchase for Platinum, and equip by going to your Options > Interface > UI Customization.

    • Fetch operates the same as the coveted Vacuum Mod for Sentinels.  You can find the Fetch Mod from New Hyena variants in the Orb Vallis.
    • With the addition of the Fetch mod, we have changed Vacuum and Fetch mods to pull the items directly to the Warframe as opposed to the Sentinel/Pet.

  • Added some polish to the Gear Wheel changes. We now have a UI marker to indicate where the start of the Gear Spiral is so you have an orientation point AND we always start the opening of the Gear Wheel in the same rotation. This is based on your feedback about losing muscle memory and losing your orientation upon repeat gear use.
  • New loading UI elements have been added!

Mining Changes (Plains of Eidolon & Vallis):

Mining launched with Update 22: Plains of Eidolon and introduced a new resource extracting system to Warframe! Collecting Ore and Gems required you trace a pattern around a deposit using a Mining cutter tool in order to release it from its encasement. Since then it has seen several small iterations over time in order to ease what was at times tricky to execute, especially since the quality of the deposit was affected by the accuracy of the trace (which typically made the process very slow).

With the introduction of a brand new open landscape with deposits of its own, we knew that we needed to add new challenge that required similar levels of precision and skill, but in a speedier fashion and with much more return. So with that said, we have made the following changes to Mining:

Extraction is now done by heating a deposit to the ideal temperature. Aiming and shooting your Mining tool at any of the heat spots (flashing blue dots) on a deposit will begin the process.

A thermometer gauge ring will appear with boxed indicators that denote where you have to land in order to extract from the deposit. Simply hold the fire button and release when you are inside any of the indicators on the ring. Red deposits still indicate Ores and Blue indicates Gems. Landing in the smaller of the indicators yields Gems (even on a Red deposit).

General Mining notes:

  • All hot spots must be completed in order to successfully collect Ore/Gems.
    • Heat spots will glow red to indicate when you have successfully completed it.
  • The more heat spots, the harder the extractions become with timing pressures and moving boxes.
  • If all of the indicators are missed, you will still be rewarded a small amount of Ore/Gem (depending on the deposit type).

Arbitration Changes and Fixes:

The following changes are part of future bigger picture changes and improvements to the mode as a whole that require more testing and development.

  • Arbitration Drones are now exempt from Infested Ancient Healer Auras.
  • Reduced Arbitration Defense Wave length to balance mission time played in comparison to Arbitration Survival missions.
  • Slightly increased the hitbox of Arbitration Drones
  • Fixed Arbitration Drones taking damage from Gara’s Splinter Storm.
  • Fixed Arbitration boon selecting the MK1-Braton.
  • Fixed an AI bug in Arbitration Defense missions that was causing enemies to stand around after spawning.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur if a clan notification message was received while transitioning between levels.
  • Fixed Arbitrations hint not appearing in the World State Window for players that have almost completed the Star Chart.
  • Fixed Arbitration Warframe Mods being usable in Archwing missions.

Operator Suit Mesh Changes:

You may recall mention in the Update 23.10.6 thread that Operator Suit Mesh changes will release when they are in better condition. We felt the first pass on PC lacked polish, so the changes were held back until more revision could be made. That said, this should be a much smoother roll-out of our changes to Operator fashion. Since mixing and matching pieces is becoming the norm, we want all Operator cosmetics to be compatible with this.

Changes are now being implemented so that the hood mesh is no longer attached to the Chest piece of the Operator.

a829109938a9f13915862f9424325b2f.jpg

The Operator Waistband section now displays each Suit’s waist attachments with the proper highlighted cloth displaying in the Icon. For example, prior to this update, the ‘Vahd Greaves’ were missing the center flap cloth due to not having a waistband attachment - which is now fixed!

Arca Plasmor Change:

The previous Mainline update of Update 23.10.6 included a sneaky bug that removed falloff damage from the Arca Plasmor and the Shwaak Prism. The Arsenal continued to state the always present falloff (10.0 - 20.0) but it wasn’t truly applying. We have fixed this bug, which resulted in adding falloff damage back to the Arca Plasmor and Shwaak Prism, and thus returned it to its original falloff state prior to Update 23.10.6. This also fixes the Conclave Arsenal displaying the incorrect falloff damage for the Arca Plasmor.

Note from [DE]Megan: I’m personally an Arca Plasmor devotee, and after testing comparisons, it truly remains a radiated plasma punch to the face.

Changes:

  • Vigilante Pursuit is now an Exilus Mod! This Mod currently has similar function to the Enemy Sense Mod, therefore using a Mod slot was counter intuitive.
  • You can now travel to other Relays/Towns when accessing the Star Chart from a Relay/Town.
  • The following UI screens have received visual changes to better match the chosen Theme:
    • Cutting Fish Bait in Cetus
    • Cancelling a Foundry build
    • Viewing a members Clan contributions in the Clan screen
    • Harvesting a Resource Drone in the Star Chart
  • Reduced the Corpus Ospreys dodging frequency.

  • Improved the virtual cursor so that it no longer focuses on Star Chart nodes when sufficiently zoomed out.
  • Tweaked Icarius Syandana offsets that got a bit wonky on Mag, Banshee, Nekros, Saryn, and Valkyr.
  • Tooltips for Arcanes now display bonuses in uppercase like the Arcane manager screen.
  • Improved the Syndicate screen UI to improve long description placement.
  • Bounty boards aesthetically changed across the board (Cetus).  Hover to view Bounty details. Select "REWARD DETAILS" button to expand the reward list.
  • Vaykor Hek now has 0.7 Disposition as intended with the Riven Disposition Changes from the November 8th hotfix. When tweaking Riven Dispositions we missed the Vaykor Hek when changing the normal Hek - they now have matching Dispositions.
  • Increased the Archwing max height in the Plains of Eidolon to 300 meters.
  • The following Dojo rooms have received a quantity cap (Clans that currently exceed the cap will keep them):
    • The Inspiration Hall now has a max quantity of 3
    • The Custom Obstacle Course now has a max quantity of 5
  • Enemy names in the Dojo Color Research screen that weren't all caps are now all caps.
  • The ‘SENTINEL’ Inventory category has been renamed to ‘ROBOTICS’ to welcome the new MOA Companions.
  • The Zaw Foundry category is now the ‘Modular Weapon’ category. It includes Zaws, K-Drive, Kitguns, Moa and Amp parts.
  • The Hastened Deflection Mod is now a ‘BEAST’ Mod, meaning it’s also compatible with Kavats and Helminth Charger.
  • Tweaked Khora’s Accumulating Whipclaw Augment sounds.
  • Numerous Bells, Lanterns, and Nature Decorations in the Dojo have received the PBR treatment!
  • Improved lighting and numerous textures in the New Loka Relay room.
  • The Hystrix’s Alt Fire stats have been split into tabs when viewed in the Inventory, to fix the stat information running off the screen.
  • Companions will now teleport to you immediately after you dismount from Archwing.
  • Updated Daman Prime Sugatra and Vala Prime Sugatra names as they were inconsistent with previous Prime item names.
  • Slight increase to AI spawns in Drone Defense missions when playing Solo.
  • Improved logic for ordering enemies to move to a NPC Defense Target.
  • Improvements towards AI spawn flow in the Corpus Ice Planet tileset.
  • Improved Nekros’ Shadow of the Dead FX to better support replicating larger AI.
  • Improved water rippled textures and FX when firing into it.
  • Improvements towards AI running into walls and Defense Targets getting teleporting into the abyss below in the Grineer Shipyard Defense tilesets.
  • Improvements towards AI jumping onto crates for no logical reason.
  • Improvements towards AI getting stuck on doorways.
  • Numerous overall performance improvements.
  • Made some micro-optimizations to visibility culling.

Additional Notes! 

Update Size! 

In case you missed yesterday's post in the status thread, here's some information about the Update size on PS4: 

Quote

 

Hello PS4 friends!

Here to share some information about tomorrow's Fortuna release Update size! As we mentioned in the OP, "a brand new open landscape with all the fixings makes this update rather large" and it's definitely a chunky one (roughly 8GB!). This is also in part due to a fix we included that touched on all audio in the game (mostly under the hood that affected audio syncing!). 

So that you're prepared for and ready to download tomorrow's December 10th release at 10 AM EDT, we suggest taking the time to make room on your PS4 if needed! 

Thank you, see you all tomorrow 👋❤️

Fortuna Twitch Drops Campaign Rerun!

To celebrate the release of Fortuna on PS4 and Xbox One we are rerunning the Fortuna Twitch Drops campaign! Players and broadcasters from all platforms will be eligible to participate (including our Nintendo Switch Tenno!). 

The campaign will go live sometime after the update has fully launched! Once we’ve done the necessary checks to make sure there aren’t any top priority bugs/issues that need to be handled before hand, we will post a detailed thread the Fortuna Twitch Drops (including start and end time!).  Twitch Drops are live! 

Tennogen Round 14 Information!

As mentioned in the status thread, Round 14 items have not been included in this update. [DE]Taylor posted an update on what you can expect for that round on Xbox One and PS4 here

Quote

 

For our console Tenno who are awaiting news on Round 14 content, with the inclusion of Switch to the Warframe family, we are approaching this Round’s transfer differently. With the amount of items in this Round, we will be selecting a few initial creations to transfer and evaluate next steps from there. Once we have worked with creators to transfer the selected items, we'll share the final list. 

It’s our goal to ensure that all future TennoGen transfers are handled equally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, so we are taking extra care with our first transfers as we introduce our Nintenno to more and more TennoGen content!

CHROMA PRIME ACCESS HAS ENDED
The elemental master Chroma Prime has stepped aside to make room for Mesa Prime Access! If you have Chroma Prime, Gram Prime, and Rubico Prime Relics they will still be in your inventory to use in Void Fissure missions. 


BANSHEE PRIME HAS ENTERED THE VAULT
The following items from Banshee Prime's release and their respective Relics will enter the Vault. These items will no longer be available in-game:

  • Banshee Prime

With this Vaulting comes the shift of the following Syndicate Sacrifices:

  • Replaced New Loka’s Sacrifice of Banshee Prime Chassis to Hydroid Prime Systems.
  • Replaced Red Veil’s Sacrifice of Banshee Prime Chassis to Hydroid Prime Systems.

If these Prime Weapons and Warframes (or their Blueprints/Components and Relics) are already in your Inventory, they will remain after the Vaulting.

Chat Moderation Changes:

As a continued improvement to our Chat Moderation, we have removed the ‘purple text’ indicator from Chat. Our previously mentioned third party professional moderation team will also be starting to emerge as early as tomorrow.

Later today a full outline of the Chat Moderation Responsibilities and Code of Conduct will be posted on warframe.com.

My attachment and syandana keeps getting remove anytime I travel from dojo to my ship. And my right and left emblems. Also am not able to recast dread mirror. Once the blood orb is above me it won't let me recast but I end up charging the blood orb

Edit: after testing I can recast it. I just have to double tap it. But the problem with that is if I double tap and it doesn't end up on a target I'll still end up charging my blood orb when I don't want to. Why not just have it were holding the button would just let me charge it and not taping it once

Bug report, every time that I get to the last part of the first rank bounty it bugs out. It crashes or it doesn't acknowledge that it is completed. My other report is that I finished the tutorial quest for fortuna but I haven't received the k-drive launcher.

Edit: I had to go back to the orbiter and check the quest tab before I got the launcher in the gear selection of the arsenal. The bounty bug remains.

Edit 2: The gear wheel resets after a selection in the field, it no longer stays at your last selected item, such as archwing launcher or k-drive launchers, it resets to gear item 1.

Thank you very much for this update. I just want to know. You really support the consoles very well but and the amazing job you did with DualShock 4 monospkeaer, lightbar and trackpad is really something that helps to dive into the atmosphere. Will there be a aproper PS4 Pro support like increased resolution and improved graphics? Thanks.

Bug already found in appearance when changing between colour configs L1 button does not worki to select a colour config only R1 so if using zephyr it is harder to switch back to other colour configs as L1 wont work and you will have to uneqiup and then re equip zephyr to change the colour again, still I am loving Fortuna even with the appearance colour config bug but hey it'll obviously get fixed oh and another minor bug garudas bloodshed sigil doesn't seem to be showing properly outside of appearance and colour customisations all of you at DE are awesome XD keep up with the awesome work

December 11 Hotfix #1:

  • Fixed an issue where Power Cell Carriers sometimes took longer than expected to spawn in Venus Excavation missions.
  • Fixed an issue where the Operator/Warframe could get stuck crouching (if they were crouched when you Transferred out and then back in to them).
  • Like 2

Newest hotfix broke camera movement (mouse) while using k-drive. It was epic now its painful. Happens mostly while jumping.

Thanks, I noticed this issue last night. Good thing I was playing as Nekros then to alleviate that issue.
