Warframe Idea;Charlotte Aulin (Castlevania)- Magic Book of Binding Spells

Recommended Posts

I would like to see a Warframe like Charlotte from Castlevania where we can capture enemy abilities and use them as our own. Capture the enemies different abilities permanently and use them in other missions. For those who have not played Castlevania, Charlotte had a magic book that would bind monsters abilities/spells to it once captured (and some times it would take a while to capture enemies abilities and you could keep capturing their abilities until you maxed out each ability making it stronger). I think something like this would be neat for Warframe. Obviously to DE's own discretion on what powers/types from each enemy. Yea that would possibly be a lot of enemies and lots of different abilities, but I feel like it could involve a good little quest line for us to uncover/find these abilities and to see the story about this Warframe that steals enemies powers and uses their own powers against them.

Oooo, that'd be both neat and tricky!

If you can't use every last ability, that's gonna be a bummer to someone different every time.
But if you can, Whooo boy things could get broken.

Would it take on your energy color? They might have to make a whole new version of every ability.
Not saying that wouldn't be very awesome.

Juggernaut's weird floor-cover infested thing...
Kela De Thaym's Rockets? ...would you only get 1 of those rockets? could it be spammed?
Would the cast cost be proportionate to the class/grade/type/damage of skill captured?

This idea is goin' places. Please elaborate with some instances if you get the chance. OP.
Would like to hear your thoughts.

Here is the idea I have:

Warframe name: Enigmus (The Warframe is difficult to understand because it does not know what it wants to be, the power and choice is up to the user and can change at any time)

Warframe Passive: You now have a chance to absorb another enemy's power/ability (haven't quite thought through how one would absorb the power, Charlotte used a book that she would hold up and capture the attack or ability of an enemy as long as she was within range (like capturing a healing spell or melee spell) or on the trajectory of the abilities path of damage (when capturing a ranged attack))

Ability 1: Absorbed non ultimate power of choice

Ability 2: Absorbed non ultimate power of choice

Ability 3: Absorbed non ultimate power of choice

Ability 4: Absorbed ultimate power of choice

It would be like having a warframe where we get to choose the abilities but you have to absorb them before you can be able to use them, and that is the only way you can get a particular power by actually playing and hunting the enemy that you want their powers from. You would be able to permanently store any absorbed power/ability, but you can only choose to have 4 active at a time. The energy color can correspond as a buff to a particular ability (say the ability is in a particular damage family like toxin so Green would buff the ability damage and any other ability in the same family) So if you have all 4 abilities that correspond with toxin damage then when you have green energy you would get buffs to all 4 abilties etc. These are just thoughts. I want this frame to be able to be played as anything healer, support, dps, CC, a mix of all whatever the user wants to. Steal the buffs from ancient healers or the attacks from bombards. They could be limitless as long as DE makes more new enemys there will always be new powers to try and absorb. Ofc there would have to be balance so this frame would not be OP. Haven't thought of what the base frame stats would be either.

This is actually a cool idea.

The problem comes with execution, how will its abilities be balanced? Since the bosses abilities are designed around being a boss and giving the warframe exactly that ability won't work since it will do horribly to much or too little damage depending on the boss. So a custom ability would need to be made for each capturable(copyable) ability.

So while it's a fun concept, i think it's way to much work to pull off in a satisfying way.

Balance is the question and the answer, yet how would we achieve that with a frame that I suggest that has the potential of having so many powers at its disposal that are not it's own. Obviously since the powers are not our own, we should not be masters to them, therefore they should not be OP. Having a variant level of each power that could potentially be absorbed that is balanced is a matter of trial and error to find. We already see how strong some enemies can be at lvl 100+ to our frames, plus how affective would our powers that we absorbed from one enemy work on that same enemy? which factions powers would work best on another faction? theory crafting. This would be a complicated and big project, but i would love to play a frame such as this, if they found an easy way to put things to craft. And yes, not every power should be absorbable, as some powers on enemies would just make things potentially op for this suggested frame.

What if all ability stat mods were innefective since we are not masters to these powers and the only way we can up their strength range and duration is by having to absorb them multiple times until we eventually reach a max cap of learning/absorbing an ability? Obviously warframe mods for armor, health, energy, etc will still all be applicable? Just throwing out ideas.
