Do We Have Dungeons in Warframe ?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure that I have a grasp on the concept of Dungeons, but if in the case we don't have them in the game

why isn't it an endgame plan ?

& does empyrean fall in the category of a dungeon ?

Probably not, there used to be these things called raids which were pretty good apparently but they were scrapped for whatever reason. DE seems to have gone down a path of noob friendly content and I doubt they'll turn away now

No.

Dungeons are closed areas of different sizes that commonly have only one available route towards the end of it.

In other words, dungeons are sh*t.

 

The tilesets we have on the other hand have many areas to them, with multiple routes available to head towards the extraction point. So no, they're not dungeons.

They were removed because every single update even hotfixes would break them. Most updates featured lines and lines of raid fixes, and whenever they broke the community get VERY salty till they were fixed.

This type of qeastion makes me think of games like Minecraft and WoW and I'm not sure how to take that

Can we have a portal in a cave on the plains which takes us to a dragon boss fight?

Well warframe is sci-fi not fantasy, so dragons don’t really work. Unless you’re implying the orokin made dragons and we haven’t heard anything about them in thousands of years

I saw a lot of people comparing the Wolf Hunts to dungeons? Not sure if they really counted though.

The Orokin have, among other things, made a space-time manipulation demigod who dresses like he's from the Victorian era, psychic and psychotic terraforming von neumann probes and some red stuff which lets you steal someone's body, all of which we didn't hear about for a decent chunk of time. So, honestly... best not to rule that out entirely.

I dunno what RPG dungeons you guys have been doing, but "instanced missions" like in Warframe are pretty much the basis of dungeons. Aside from the two open worlds, the entirety of Warframe is dungeons.

You have clearly never played a game of Dungeons & Dragons, or any good dungeon crawler game.

There is always a ‘destination’ but a straight and narrow path is rare in the good ones. I agree, that would be S#&$ but usually isn’t the case.

Tile sets ARE dungeons.  “dungeons” in OP’s sense seem to be a thematic thing.

Going to the left or the right of a pillar or other obstacle does not make multiple routes.  You can walk through a room however you want, but to go from the start of the map to the end, will always be a singular path from room to room.  Warframe's maps never have multiple routes through them.  There's never a time when you have the option of going from room A to B to C, or A to D to C.

Uhm, just because you played other games doesn't mean they have to follow whatever you're used to.

 

You're in the warframe world. The warframe world isn't here for you lol.

War Within spoiler. Maybe we have heard of them... just not traditional European dragons.

the reason being that if raids werent removed then the plains of eidolon would be obsolete/deserted in a week to a month, so trials/raids died and had the arcanes from them moved to eidolons, thus making poe relevant all of a sudden.

Raids were removed because no one played them. About 3% at most of the player base actively did raids, and raids themselves caused many bugs that required time to fix. 

They were not worth the effort put into them.

they were far from ridden with serious bugs, at most some probably easy to change or fix puzzle/pressure pad related issues, its not like they were hugely in-depth, they were still simple at their core and certainly something that should have had time given to them to improve upon, i would still rather have improved raids than the boring godzilla fights we have now.
