NOVA Prime - best forma for best variety?

Question

Hello Tennos,

I dont know if its possible to forma your Nova Prime that way that you can make 3 perfect builds or should I just simply make two Nova Primes and forma them individually?
This is my actual set:
https://gyazo.com/df5a96d1db71c325af3e0beb37e57edc

Now I am not sure if I should reforma her so I can get both these builds on her:

Max Slow

Max Speed

 

Or is this build more powerful than the other slow above?
Alternative Slow

So either I change one madurai to naramon and another madurai to Zenurik

or I build just another Nova Prime and form her into Slow and the other one into Fast.
I dont care about how much formas I need to spent. 

What you guys think?

My Slowva:

Corrosive Projection (*), R4 Vigilante Pursuit (-)
Primed Continuity (V), Narrow Minded (D)
Constitution (-), Augur Message (-)
Streamline (-), Molecular Fission
R9 Umbral Vitality, R9 Umbral Intensify

Speedva:

Power Donation (*), Vigilante Pursuit (-)
Primed Continuity (V), Narrow Minded (D)
Constitution (-), Augur Message (-)
Streamline (-), Neutron Star
Overextended, Vitality

(*) = Aura Forma used, of course

I have 3 perfect builds(4 forma + 1 aura forma does it)
1 almost like your alternative as a main build.
speedva with 10% ps  (power donation 😜 )
hybrid build ( enough ps and duration for a slow but with a pinch of range 145% for open worlds and fast captures and boss kills)

If I remember when I get home I will screencapture them.

I've been a bit lazy adding Aura formas to my frames lately sorry. These 3 builds do the job for general play. I have a second Nova Prime for other interesting builds for specific content.

A few points:

- Nova is one of the warframes where an Aura forma makes sense

- Her new augment (Molecular Fission) is quite good, opens up more possible builds but especially helps with survivability (maxed duration + Null Star)

- The slow effect from Molecular Prime is capped at 75% (which corresponds with a power of 145% if I remember correctly)

- Having a 100% status weapon on your companion together with Growing Power means you have an almost constant 25% power increase, opening up alternative Slowa builds

Adaptation and umbral mods aren't necessary for a good Nova build tbh. I personally use,

Growing power aura, primed continuity, narrow minded, molecular fission, constitution, power drift, intensify, augur message, vitality and speed drift for my slow build.

Power donation aura, and replace the strength mods with overextended and  enemy sense for my speed build.

Enemy sense and speed drift and such are personal preference so you can swap for something else if you want, these builds only cost me three forma to get and they give the 90% DR and 96.8m range to her 4. You can also use the speed build as a portal Nova for teleporting stuff on the plains or whatever.

WoW, seems like I got some homework to do and check all your builds you were so nice to post here.

What I was targeting definitely was not just a good build.
I want to have the best possible mods equipped and then see how much variety I can get out of that.
 

Like one insane slow build, one insane speed build and then one in between for other stuff.

 

I started now with Aura forming her and next is changing some (r) to (-)

Havent spent much time on her since months or years 😎

It's possible to cobble up also a versatile build by using both power donation and energy conversion, letting you cast both as speedva or slowa depending on having just gotten an energy orb or not

It's possible with a good forma selection, but aura forma are the more suggested means. 

I have an adequate polarised nova to do all 3 builds even without one.
