Wolf of Saturn Six: Appearance rate

I maxed out in Nightwave at the start of this week and I've fought the wolf once. In that one fight, I was blessed with his motor. I was fortunate enough to buy the other 3 parts but this method of acquisition is just wrong.

At this point I just want him scanned for my codex as the first time I didn't bring Helios and I was too obsessed with killing him to take my scanner out. How many does he even need 3?! Not to mention I'm not sure if what Alad V did to his face counts as a separate entity.

The sad trend as someone pointed out is that he'll frequently show for the players that can't even kill him while those that can have barely seen him once. If his spawn isn't guaranteed then his awful drop rates will get you. Very disappointing.

Ayup. I've seen him...6 times? Maybe 7. Always while leveling new gear.

Out of that, I've received 3 wolf sledge heads.

Why do you even have to actively hardfarm the wolf?

Just play the game like you usually do, he has a chance to spawn regardless of whether you are trying to farm him or not.

You either hardfarm....or you never see him at all.

I've played hours every single day.
I have yet to get even one spawn out of him.

As far as I'm concerned?  He doesn't exist.
I've never fought him.
I've never had a chance to get his weapon.
I've never had a chance to get his new cosmetic locked behind him.

There desperately needs to be a way to actually farm him for players who have yet to see him even once though he has been in game for 7 weeks already.

Now, there was a little something of miscommunication.
While there was the mention in Update 24.7.0 + 24.7.0.1, of assassins no longer appearing at extraction.

Quote

Assassin type enemies (Wolf of Saturn Six, Stalker, Syndicate, etc) no longer choose to appear as you’re extracting

It didn't quite specify,
That once an objective is complete, no assassins will spawn at all.
Not taking the players' distance from extraction, into account.

Which resulted, in me waiting for that 5 minute mark, with an allready completed (capture) objective.
So, we're basically twiddling with our thumbs for nothing at that point.

 

Now, with this newfound knowledge, I wait with capturing my target.
And suddenly, you start seeing a huge difference (or I was just extremely lucky).

In a short ammount of time (several hours still, but an improvement nontheless), I have encountered the wolf 4 times.
Feeling extremely positive about those numbers.

However... (Yes, still however..., sorry 😕 )

Of those 4 encounters.
3 where rewarded with an [Eleventh Storm] mod
And 1 [Shocking Touch]

Which remains a big party crasher.
One, which ruins the entire experience still.
Those mods serving as filler.
Still a slap in the face, honestly.

 

Now, I keep seeing people bring up stalker, or other assassins, very often in this conversation.
But you can't compare them.

Stalker is, and will allways be there.
Plus, you can get as many marks as there are assassination targets.
(In fact, he showed up the exact next mission, after completing today's sortie - Alad V)
That's how common, and easy he is, to run into (same for the others - farming 30 Zanuka pigments was less painful than this).

Wolf, does not have these traits.
He is here, temporarily. (For as far as we know, no info is given)
So it's action time, or missing out.

And as mentioned before, I could arguably trade a duplicate blade, for the handle. (The kind of trade, I truly support, and believe in)
But this far in..., (got pushed too far) I just have to find out more.
The feedback these encounters provide, can be detrimental.
For improved, future nightwaves.
In hopes, something beneficial will come out, for our entire community.

 

Also, I still remember my early days.
I can imagine how tough it must be for new players.
And once I finally have what I seek, can I start testing in this field (with weakly modded weapons).

I shall allways keep caring, for my brothers and sisters.
My earlier promise, still remains as well.
Should I finally be able, to complete my very own sledge at last.

 

If you'll excuse me now.
I must install an eleventh storm, into my eleventh storm... :clem:
But seriously...

The boss is supposed to be rare of course but it was stated that it would increase in appearance likelihood over time. Now we have a couple of weeks of Nightwave gone and I had only five encounters in total.

  • Is the appearance likelihood bugged? Does it not increase properly?
  • Are there special occassions in which the Wolf spawns easier?

I have absolutely no issue in fighting the boss but I really would love it you could somehow "farm" him.

They need to standardise the spawn rates by guaranteeing a spawn once every few missions or something because I've only faced him three times iirc over the past weeks while a clanmate had him spawn back to back today apparently

Well, I've fought him only once, so I'm just pretending he and his drops don't exist so I won't get mad at not getting his drops...

I can guarantee that I captured a lot of his Saturn Six Fugitive cronies, but only had him spawn once or twice during the entirety of this Nightwave season.

I honestly and wholeheartedly believe the guy is afraid of me wrecking him. 

There needs to be a multiplier or algorithm in play for him to spawn based on how many Saturn Six Fugitives you’ve captured. He literally is based on luck, on a worldstate hardcap spawn rate.

Dear De i was doing a fissure defense mission and guess who decide to show up? yes the wolf and The Three Little pigs he was level 64 we were and wave 5 to finish open the relic and guess what? we manage to kill all the enemies but mission didn't end until we kill big boss and The Three Little pigs we tried hard to kill him i was using weak weapons because i was leveling them after 20 0r 30 minutes we manage to kill him just for him to drop a regular mod that i have 100 of them if we didn't kill him the other option was to abort the mission and lost the 5 waves we fought so hard can you please fix this problem thanks.

It's beyond me that his drops are garbage, especially for being so rare to show up. And having no ability to call him.

Just a nice big F from DE to us for playing their game. (I've seen him 2 times, 1 weapon part and 1 abort because I didn't bring good weapons in a flood)

Well, if you were leveling weapons, you weren't fighting hard...

It's really your own fault, if you don't take a single powerful weapon with you to save time by leeching off of other peoples kills.

So you basically got what you deserved.

How is it his fault that the wolf dropped something useless?  If it took so long to kill him, then nobody had strong weapons, so I don't see how he was leeching if he was just as well equipped as everyone else.

Honestly its not just in void fissures, He's basically reduced how many items you can level up at 1 time since a rank 8 vectis does 300 damage to him at lvl 53. Again, Not a fun encounter, Unlike stalker who you can kill in operator mode.

Calling someone leech while ignoring the fact that you can kill trash enemies with such weapons without any problem is really good thing to see.

also ignoring the fact that there was another players, and even then it had to waste 30 minuites.

Wolf is definitely too tanky to be an assasin but it doesn't matter for me since i can't find him.

ABSOLUTE GARBAGE.  I've been running missions I don't need to run just to try to draw him out so I can get the BP.  I do so and then your game breaks on me.  Fantastic.  Thanks a lot.  'Bout to go find a different game to be my daily.

So sorry about this - a ticket with support can get you your items, and it's fixed with the Cert build I believe.

Warframe.market is telling me ~170 Platinum on Xbox. Economies vary between platforms, and I don't believe they got the next update with different drop chances. Also, it's not fair to just give the argument "just buy it then". I would be equally upset if I got a very low drop chance item and my game just bugged out on me. Hopefully support takes care of BattleCry swiftly so he can get that hammer blueprint he deserves.

We are on week 7 at the moment, rolling into 8, and I haven't even dropped a full set of the Wolf Sledge, and I have been doing atleast 15 hours this past week worth of Fissures. The spawn rate combined with the drop rates for different items makes the Wolf of Saturn Six quite a grind. I do hope this assassin is a permanent addition to Warframe, as that new mask with a 2.00% drop chance would be brutal for a time sensitive drop.

I had this issue myself 2 days ago (i even made a post for it)

It seems that when the wolf appears and you kill him he drops the wolf mask, and then you kill his 3 fugitives. the game will crash (ONLY WHEN HE DROPS THE MASK). but i may be wrong

anyways, go to your operator and check if you got the wolf mask, then everything is ok, coz it happened to me too, the game crashed (same as you ) but still got the mask and the 150 standing points

Well, update...may have "cried wolf".  Both the mask and the BP now show up in my inventory.  Not sure if it's a case of took a sec for it to populate or our erstwhile Community Manager/space mom...who's cruising the General Feedback forums on a Saturday night (thanks for that Rebecca)...waved her magic zaw and made things happen.  My ticket is still open so I'm leaning towards the former more so than the latter.  

If that is the case...my bad for being a bad community member.

From what I've seen of this community, even going apenards over some bug is ok because we all do it at some point and people understand how fast you can get frustrated. Buuut if you're farming the wolf you probably already know that.
