OPERATION: BURIED DEBTS

We bring you our first Operation of 2019. It's big, deep, and it starts now. Buckle in, Tenno, it begins soon! While we have no clan leaderboard with this Operation, you can earn many rewards by participating and unlocking the mysteries of Fortuna.

We’re doing things a bit differently with the launch of the Operation on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch for the first phase (Thermia Fractures and Data-Hash scanning) and onward (“Escalation” boss fight). You may be aware of the fixes that are being worked on for PC to address some painful bugs in the boss fight: crashes, Host migration issues, etc. In light of this, we will be sending another build to cert as soon as possible with whatever fixes are needed. We aren’t comfortable having the boss fight go live in its current condition as it is very unstable and fun-breaking. Ideally, we want to deliver it in its best quality form for a smoother and more enjoyable experience.  

This does change the pacing of the Operation as we require the fixes to go live on PC first, and the time to properly test and submit our builds to cert. So! That said, here’s what you can expect: 

March 25th Edit: We've got some great news to share - After the hard work of the team, we no longer need to send to Cert for the next stages of the Operation. Meaning that Data-hash and Escalation will be coming much sooner than originally anticipated! We hope you've been enjoying closing up those blasted Thermia Fractures, all your efforts will soon lead you to the next stages of Buried Debts. 

Phase 1 - Thermia Fractures (live now!) and Data-Hashes (to come!)

As intended for Phase 1, you can participate in the closing of the Thermia fractures out in the Orb Vallis. Thermia fractures are cracking open the surface of Venus, a consequence of Nef Anyo’s unrelenting greed. He’s willing to do whatever it takes for a quick profit, including putting the whole Orb Vallis at risk. By figuring out how to stop the Thermia fractures, you're able to earn these rewards:

  • Operation Emblem
  • Amalgam Mods x4
  • Operation Sigil
  • Opticor Vandal

A bird's eye view will help you find Thermia fractures! Kill Coolant Raknoids to take their canisters and put them on a Thermia fracture. When the canister is ready, you'll need to defend it from Corpus enemies.     

You get 1 point for each Thermia Fracture you close - if you close 4 Fractures with 1 Coolant canister, you get 3 bonus points (7 total)! You can track your personal progress via the Navigation panel.    

Now that we’ve got you on the right path to sticking it to Nef Anyo and his Thermia fractures…

The Data-Hash scanning portion of Phase 1 will be postponed since it is tied to the boss fight. This will go live around the time we send the bug fix build to cert. But in the meantime, you’ll notice the Hashes are still scattered around the Vallis. You can get a head start in discovering their locations now, so that when the time comes for you to put the pieces together, you’ll be ahead of the game! 


Phase 2 “Escalation” - Boss Fight and Hildryn (to come!)

We are hoping for a speedy turnaround for the cert builds, but this does depend heavily on fixes going live on PC. We will keep you updated as we go along. We appreciate your patience, especially since we know you are excited to get to collecting Hildryn’s components via the boss fight. Rest assured that even though we have changed up the pacing of the event, Hildryn will remain a completely free Warframe for you to earn once the fight is live! 

For now, you can play to earn the Operation Emblem, new mods, Sigil, and Opticor Vandal via Thermia fractures. Good luck out there, Tenno! 

Brief note about difficulty intention: some players may find some of the combat encounters of this operation difficult. It is intended that this is a higher difficulty.    

Brief note about event recurrence: we have this set up to occur as a world event frequently. This will not be a case of Hildryn being inaccessible as Thermia Fractures will occur in the Orb Vallis regularly, enabling the boss fight (in its newly polished post-cert state). It will be frequent to make sure she is available to all! This event is cycled similarly to Baro Ki'Teer in cadence. In the same way you can get Sands of Inaros from Baro Ki'Teer with Ducats when he visits regularly, you can use Thermia to get Hildryn. Fractures will occur often - like ghouls - to keep Thermia in high supply.  
 

FAQ:

“How do I start Operation: Buried Debts?” 
A bird's eye view will help you find Thermia fractures! Kill Coolant Raknoids to take their canisters and put them on a Thermia fracture. When the canister is ready, you'll need to defend it from Corpus enemies.     

You get 1 point for each Thermia Fracture you close - if you close 4 Fractures with 1 Coolant canister, you get 3 bonus points (7 total)! You can track your personal progress via the Navigation panel.

 "Where can I find Coolant Raknoids?"
You will find Coolant Raknoids following the Exploiter Orb up near the Temple of Profit.

"What is Diluted Thermia?"
Diluted Thermia is a resource you receive as a result of using a single Coolant Raknoid's canister to close 4 fractures. This can be banked and accumulated. Who knows... maybe they have a role in taking down a major threat...

"What are Data-Hashes?"
Expand the spoilers to see what they look like! They are spread out around the the Orb Vallis -A map just might be floating around with their locations... Once we near Phase 2 of the Operation, scanning them will give you some information on what to expect next.

Devs, don't let the complainers drag this update down. Melee is now second nature and just about everything is as smooth as can be.

Yeah, loving the update so far. Melee is on point, effects seems nice..

BUT...holy is that fracture closing annoying. Not because it's difficult, it's really really boring. 

Did 30 with my clan mate so far and actually you don't even have to do something. With the right Warframe you can go afk, eat some dinner or watch a movie.. 😕

Individual entries for each K-Drive have been added to the profile page, but even if you're Rank 30 with one it'll be grayed out until you equip it for one mission.

It doesn't withhold Mastery points, just sort of a graphical glitch, but I feel sorry for anyone who maxed a board and sold it.

I've just closed 4 fracture with one canister, but got 2 Diluted Thermia not 7 and I've got Buried Debt Emblem (which requires getting at least 5 Diluted Thermia). 
In my inventory I should have 7 but instead I've got 2

No the Diluted Thermia are something separated you get one each time you finish one canister you got two because of the double recourse booster from the event. You get the 7 points per canister and the total points are shown in the World Stat Screen in your orbiter

Help!

How do I farm the new frame? I searched along all activities in Fortuna and found nothing! Any clue?

You can farm her from the Exploiter boss, but the boss is not yet availible.

Not sure what to think but why rush the release of an update if you don't get the main attraction of it? Times are achanging?

In all honesty, I hope Wisp's method of acquisition is less of a time-gate than what Hildryn currently is. Having to wait for a released boss to have its mechanics further refined & bugs still being resolved is somewhat...Disheartening.

Anyone else having issues with the game suddenly crashing while doing the profit taker battle? It's happened everytime I've done it since the update.

Took me roughly 15 minutes per 4 fracture closes with one canister = 7 points. 100 points / 7 = 15 x 15 minutes = 225 minutes.

Must admit I am enjoying the opticor vandal.

Have fun and may RNG be forever in your favor.
