[Warframe Concept] Gamaya, The Data Warframe

Recommended Posts

 

I really enjoy all of the Cephalon inspired weapons in the game and am a little disappointed by the lack of a cephalon-esque warframe, so I designed a warframe whose appearance and abilities are inspired by the data collection and aggregation of many of the in-game cephalons. So, without further delay, here is Gamaya, the Data Warframe!

 

Gamaya, The Data Warframe

Abilities

  • Passive Ability: Data Accumulation
    • Every 15 seconds Gamaya scans all enemies within 30 meters, gathering information about their defenses and attack patterns, gaining a small amount of additional damage dealt and damage resistance against that enemy. Enemies can be scanned only once.

      If the player has a codex scanner equipped, the first enemy of its type will be scanned with the codex scanner. This consumes codex scanner charges.

      • Notes:

        • Additional damage dealt hard caps at 75%. Damage reduction hard caps at 95%. Both additional damage dealt and damage reduction have diminishing returns for added scans. Initial scan grants 1.5% damage reduction and additional damage dealt. (Example, additional damage dealt is ~25% at 25 scans, ~50% at 75 scans, and ~75% at 175 scans)

          Example of how the abilit works: The player will need to scan 25 Lancers to get 25% damage reduction and additional damage dealt to Lancers, likewise, it would take 5 scans of Nox to gain a 5% damage reduction and damage boost to Nox. 

          Codex scans will only occur on the first enemy of that type in range. E.g. if there are 3 Lancers and 2 Rollers in range, only one Lancer and one Roller will receive a codex scan.

  • Ability 1: Target Enhancement

    • Gamaya deploys a holographic wall to enhance the weapon performance of Gamaya and her allies, gaining increased accuracy, crit chance, and crit damage for weapons fired through the wall. Enemies which fire through the wall have reduced accuracy.

      • Notes:

        • Similar to Volt’s shield, but without the ability to provide reliable defense. Allows Gamaya to minorly support team members.

          Accuracy, crit chance, and increased crit damage scale off of Ability Strength.

          Size of the wall scales off of Ability Range

          Duration of the wall scales off of Ability Duration
           

  • Ability 2: Damage Analysis

    • Gamaya becomes invincible for 5 seconds, analysing incoming damage types during this time. After 5 seconds, Gamaya gains 90% resistance for 45 seconds to the damage type which dealt the most damage while invincible.

      • Notes:

        • Can be stacked for multiple resistances. Can be refreshed. Provides Gamaya with reliable defenses at the cost of energy loss from constant recasts.

          Duration of invincibility and resistance scales off of Ability Duration
           

  • Ability 3: Synthesise

    • Gamaya targets an enemy, scanning them and synthesising a replica to fight for Gamaya. Up to three enemy targets can be Synthesised at once, each lasting 45 seconds or until killed.

      Alternatively, Gamaya can synthesise one ally, which lasts for 25 seconds or until killed.

      • Notes:

        • Ally and enemy replicas cannot exist at the same time.

          Duration of synthesised minions scales off of Ability Duration

          Health and damage of Synthesised minions scales off of Ability Strength
           

  • Ability 4 / Ultimate: Deconstruction

    • Gamaya unleashes a wave of overcharged energy dealing damage to all enemies within 30 meters. Enemies which have been scanned by Gamaya take additional damage and have damage dealt to them in the damage type in which they are weakest to.

      Enemies which are killed by Deconstruction disintegrate and are scanned by Gamaya. 

      • Notes:

        • Base and additional damage scale off of Ability Strength

          Distance of ability scales off of Ability Range
           

 

 

Background/Lore for Primed Version

The Sentients of the Old War had greatly changed from the time they had initially left the Origin System on their expedition to the Tau System. Knowing the disadvantage of ignorance, the Orokin devised a plan to gather information about the Sentients. Combining the technology of the combat-capable warframe and the inquisitive cephalon, the Orokin forged a new warframe, one that was capable of observing and retrieving mass sums of data, all while enduring the heat of battle through precisely calculated adaptation. Thus, Gamaya was forged.

Hello There!

The Abilities sounds great, but one leaves me with details that should clarify on the ability.

On her third ability, Synthesis.... what functions would the ally tenno would do? like cast the abilities of your teammates's warframes without any mods the teammate has on the warframe? would be great if that was clarified.

This is really dang clever! I'm imagining the targeting wall looking like the inside of Iron Man's helmet, drawing targeting circles around enemies and stuff! Would require some clever programming! Also, rather cool to have a damage-enhancing screen that improves your weapons performance and crits, instead of just dumping some extra elemental damage onto it. I definitely wanna see this!

 

BTW, what will the frame look like? Made of data holograms, maybe? Male or female?

 

EDT: Looks like you had pictures, but something's wrong and I can't see them. Maybe cause I'm using the mobile app.

The basic idea for the ally replica is that it would function as a temporary specter. I'm not too sure about how to balance the ability, specters are already pretty strong with the right loadout, but can also be underwhelming with other loadouts. Also considering that normal specters last an indefinite amount of time, I was thinking that due to the limited duration of the Synthesise ability's replicas that they could have a damage or ability strength increase based off of Gamaya's ability strength

Yeah, there seemed to be an issue with the images the last time I checked this post, but it seems to have fixed itself now?

 

If you are still having trouble with the images, here's a non-embedded link to one of the images: https://i.imgur.com/JsRrdcm.png

If they behave like specters, do they use the warframe abilities?

Also

can you provide a picture for gamaya prime?

Hmm ok. Understandable!
