Forma Farming

Recommended Posts

Hello guy's,

Anyone know the best way to farm forma or it's blueprints? I've heard doing the sabotage missions on Earth and finding all the grineer caches almost always gets you one, is that true?

Cracking relics,as a good amount of relics have forma blueprints in them,also the prime stuff you got from the relics can be traded for plat,and you can use the plat you traded to buy forma from the market.

Yeah definitely not true.  You have only 2% chance there.

The best way to farm forma blueprints is to run intact relics in public squads - preferably short missions like Capture, Exterminate - though all mission types are fine.  It's the fastest and most reliable way.  Especially if you're putting down relics you know have formas on the bronze level.  You'd honestly have to have insanely bad luck NOT to get a forma every second or third run.  Sometimes I get them 10 relics in a row.  Just make sure you use relics with forma in the pool, and pray the pub squads do the same (usually somebody does.)

To put into perspective I farmed 65 Forma Blueprints this weekend (saving up for Lich weapons) in just Saturday and Sunday of running relics.

Farming forma blueprints is best done in public void fissures, as each fissure tier besides tier 5 kuva lich relics has forma.  You want to go with 4 people to increase the chance of a forma bp dropping.  Farming forma that is already built is best done on lua in the music room if it spawns you can get a built forma but the odds are quite slim everywhere of obtaining a built forma.

I think the best way to get Forma is a Lua relic. If you grind the sound puzzle you have what seems to be a 33% chance to get a completed Forma. Then your relic has a chance to get 1 also.

Lua, any mission but do more likely on extermination mission because they are easy, do the voice singing musical room for that give you chance golden cache crate for either give you 1k credits or either a forma for rare win win, recommend have doubler resource, rare resource drop and a cat that increase chance of rare resources drops.  The rest the room you can skip if you feel like it.

Relics are best choice as 1 in 4 players usually gets at least 1... Another one is Orokin Derelict Defense, it's A rotation can grant a forma bp instead of relics etc. I'm not sure if B and C can also drop one but I know A does, so wave 5, 10, 25, 30 etc

  • you play Void Tears until you have so many Prime Parts that you can't even see Navigation through the pile of stuff in your Ship.
  • or if you get bored of that you try your hand at the Orokin Moon Music/Memory 'simon says' puzzle.
    • it's only roughly a 20% Chance so it's kinda meh unless you have a Resource Booster and preferably also getting lucky with a cat stacking several more Resource Boosters.
  • or if you get really bored, play Derelict Defense until your eyes start bleeding.

Thought it was the earlier ones because I've normally gotten them without playing in it long but I could be wrong... still the chance is less than relics for more effort..

Relics are by far the most reliable source for a blueprint. Fully built Forma is a preferred option but the Lua music room is RNG that you'll get it and then the RNG on top of that to actually receive a Forma is pretty low... I've only ever gotten 1 but I also hadn't farmed it as chances seem extremely low.

Ok so right now I've done 8 fissure mission with relics that have forma blueprint as a common reward and still haven't got one yet 😠

that is to few you must do more and do them in public for more chances at forma.

Hello, if you have lua the best option, at last for me, is do "plato". There is a chance that the room from octavia chasis apear, doing that room have a chance to drop an already build forma

Open relics through fissures in a group of 4. If you run 4-5 fissures you can easily net one a day. 

Other than that, their drop chance from any other content is close to non-existent.

I like Lithe excavation fissures for forma hunting. They usually go pretty fast and are enough action to not get bored. Usually pick up some endo and stuff along the way to.

Derelict Defense would be fairly time efficient if you had a Squad setup for it, i.e. extra speed Nova (10% Strength), Equinox, and some other AoE spam of your choosing(probably a Nidus, maybe Oberon for the Radiation Status). Trinity doesn't hurt ofcourse.
times will vary depending on how the game feels like Spawning but you could complete 20 Waves in roughly 8-9 minutes in theory.

that's why i said the Orokin Moon puzzle is kinda meh without Boosters.
