[PC] Coming This Week: The Old Blood

Recommended Posts

GrendelHeader_Template_3840x1040_v2019.jpg

The dead shall rise again, and their vengeance will be swift and merciless. In The Old Blood update, take on the Kuva Lich, your personal villain; trample your prey as the ravenous Grendel; cleave through flesh and bone with the robust Melee Phase 2 rework; utilize Vauban and Ember’s revamped Ability Kits; and collect a smorgasbord of new Gear and Customizations.

DEVOUR THE WICKED AS GRENDEL

Like a predator, Grendel barrels in to feast on the cruel and corrupted. Despite his fearsome appearance, Grendel is a noble spirit whose generosity is matched only by his insatiable hunger. Visit the Leverian to begin your hunt for Grendel.

Passive
Each enemy consumed grants bonus armor.

Feast
Swallow an enemy whole and store it in Grendel’s gut. Not satisfied? Keep eating, but beware -- each foe in Grendel’s belly slowly consumes energy. Hold to vomit out stored enemies covering them in toxic bile.

Nourish
Consume the enemies in Grendel’s gut and nourish nearby squad members with a radial buff.

Regurgitate
Violently puke out a bile-soaked enemy from Grendel’s gut, turning the consumed into a toxic projectile.

Pulverize
Engorged from feeding, Grendel curls into a ball and sends any enemies in his path flying.

YOUR PERSONAL VILLAIN

We maggots live — not long… We hope. More life. Work. Kill… maybe Queens notice.

Maybe they share. The old blood.

Tenno, you are not the only one with the gift of resurrection. The most worthy Grineer soldiers are receiving the power of Kuva. Strike these Kuva-Spiked Grineer down and they shall rise again, stronger and more ruthless than before.

Their goal? To take you down.

Land the killing blow on a Kuva-Spiked Grineer, and their death triggers their rebirth into your Kuva Lich. Your Lich will claim territory in the Origin System, using their influence to build a following of loyal Thralls. Track these lesser beings down and gather intel on the Lich's whereabouts. Your squadmates may help you in the process, but only you can give your Kuva Lich its final taste of fear with the Parazon ⁠— the hidden blade of the Tenno. Be warned: If you manage to defeat your Lich, another may rise to take its place.

We are maggots. But… eventually… even maggots... can fly.

MELEE CHANGES: PHASE 2

Building on the Melee changes from earlier this year, Phase 2 introduces devastating new combat techniques, smoother combos, the return of manual blocking and more!

Heavy Attacks
Phase 2 introduces new Heavy Attacks for all Melee Weapons. These attacks are slower but deal a mighty punch. String them together with your default Melee Attacks to create a symphony of destruction.

Mid-Air Madness
Melee attacks now work in mid-air! Now you can live out your gravity-defying ninja combat dreams.

Lift and Juggle
Certain Melee attacks can now lift enemies into the air, leaving them exposed to follow-up attacks. Attack them in mid-air to keep them juggled and trapped in a world of pain.

Combo Maker
The Combo system received a wide array of changes, including more intuitive combos for Melee Stances, a Combo Counter rework and smoother combo transitions to keep your flow going.

Melee Rebalance
We gave Melee Weapons their long-awaited rebalance pass, which includes Melee Weapon stats, Melee Mod rebalances and more.

Return of Manual Blocking and Melee State
Thanks to your feedback from Phase 1, manual blocking and a full Melee-only attack state have returned!

Learn more in our official Dev Workshop.

VAUBAN & EMBER REVISITED

This update delivers two highly requested Warframe reworks ⁠— Vauban and Ember! Vauban’s Kit allows for crowd control on the go and introduces a suite of new offensive capabilities, including the devastating Orbital Strike. Ember’s Kit synergises around her new Immolation Meter, which grants her some much-needed survivability and increases her firepower. We hope these changes strike a balance between adding exciting new features and facelifting old favorites. Read the Dev Workshop for the full details!

So Mike Skyers is still working on Ivara's deluxe skin from what I can gather if Titania's deluxe is coming out first. That's cool, I can be patient with Ivara's deluxe skin since I'm still a devoted Ivara lover.

Please consider making the slot remove mod costs, having to unlock it on top of having to use more forma just for an extra utility mod seems like too much.

Can't wait to see it live. I've been waiting for Ember rework for so long and finally it's here. I really hope it's going to be havoc-wreaking.
That's quite promising.

Isn't it a bit redundant when we have this?

Can the Immortal Mods be a drop in Void Challenge Rooms or Derelict Vaults? I would really like to see these places more utilized.

Not precisely. Remember every pet has two precepts, and generally already come with two penjaga polarities.

If she has a drain precept then she might just not need hunter recovery, it will also likely deal Actual Damage because, as a Kavat, she likely deals almost no damage.

I look forward to it.

Hunger is the name of the game, but it is my blade that hungers for updates!

Yes to this, please!

Also, can this be added to the facial aesthetics? I keep having to change hairstyles and accessories for different fashion configurations. The ability to have a red hair setup and a blue one on separate tabs would be a nice QoL upgrade, too. 

Thanks, DE.

The polarity is irrelevant since you can forma them.

How would it make her not need Hunter Recovery? Because she'd be using Hunter Recovery under a different name? How is that ability not redundant when you have Hunter Recovery already? Will they stack together or what?

My 6 Forma Venari and Adarza both with max-ranked Maul, Bite, and viral status would like a word with you.
