Xoris Interactions With Warframe Abilities & Exalted Weapons

Oh... Right, I forgot it likely has Spoiled Strike and no attack speed mods because you never intended to actually attack with it.

But wasn't it the point? Megan just said it was "their oversight, their mistake". And if I wanted to hit things with it, I'd rather use Glaive Prime, or maybe even less-clunky melee weapons...

Glaive Prime can't release Solaris prisoners in the Granun Void though. Only Xoris can.

How come there’s still people defending DE decisions when it comes to bad oversight on a weapon they designed themselves? You’re only reinforcing the idea that they can’t do anything wrong and always listen to the community (which is far from true).

They messed up bad by releasing a weapon without thinking the consequences it would bring and now the community has to pay the price for their mistake.

Well, that's what they said. Some things they have failed on.

Others, they acted quite quickly on them like the healing system revision.

So you can choose to believe they meant it or that they lied. Only time can tell.

healing system revision was not "quick" by any mean

I'm just going to say one thing.
If DE is changing mediocre but convenient weapon into useless weapon, than DE can take it back from me, but I'd like my 6 formas back.
This is "one bridge too far". I'm in this game long enough to witness endless nerfs of frames and weapons(down to its uselessness), sensless reworks.
You are trying to figure out why Warframe is losing its Players? THAT'S WHY! When you give us something convenient and usefull, you take it away for some absurd reasons. Keep doing this and in short amount of time there will be no one waiting for your updates and hotfixes.

whiteknights are something else, i am sure this people think any nerf De does is justified

Then actually use the Xoris! HIT things with it! Kill things with it! This changes absolutely nothing if you actually attack with it.

You're missing the point. If you actually try to use xoris on any of the affected frames, if at any point you decide to use any of the abilities in question even once your counter will be reset. Even if you call it a minor detriment, it still exists, and wouldn't happen for any other weapon

So becomes a situation of either don't use xoris with those frames or don't touch those abilities when using xoris, and that's bullS#&$

Ohh, that's cool, man! I didn't know that... I'll give it a thought while I murder those specters like in a blender with Mesa, or Banshee... or Revenant!

2) DE will look into the "stat stick" system as a whole and the role it plays in scaling. Nothing concrete to share beyond the Xoris change.

I'm not sure if that's good or bad news.

please,delete the Exalted Warframe weapons,they are useless and you don't want us to play them.Oh,delete all the warframe ablilties at the same time,you don't want us to play them too.Am I right? YOU JUST WANT TO MAKE WARFRAME A GAME YOU LIKE! Play warframe IN OUR WAY or you’re doing it wrong.RIGHT?Have you ever play this game?you made a cold weapon but can be used  to help us find another good way to play,and you just say "Oh no no no no,this shouldn't be like that,it's too imba" and nerf it to made us follow the path you made for us,and when all of us follow the path you made,you will say"these weapons broke the balance,nerf it!" Do you really want us to play this game?You want us to play different kinds of weapon,but most of them are too weak that they can't even play,you don't buff them to make them are able to use in game,you choose a "easier"way to do:nerf the good weapons.My teacher always say an old saying:“你所有偷过的懒,都会成为你打脸的巴掌” It means:All the lazies you have been will hit you very hard in the future.And I think,the time is coming soon.(I am just a student,and my English is bad,if there is anything wrong,please tell me,thanks)

What else do you propose as a solution that goes beyond "Never make a mistake"? They want for the weapon to have an infinite timer because of the Granun Void. They don't want it to work as convenience for weapons that benefit from it as it means effectively using it as nothing more than an ability booster?

You have a problem with that? Then at least help them find out a solution that meets your demands while still respecting what they set out to do.

That's an argument for not caring after the Xoris at all after it's farmed though. It's an MR4 weapon. You're supposed to drop it at some point.

Oh hey! Another opportunity to just copy and paste a message I originally copy pasted from multiple of my youtube/reddit comments! Anyone who wants can go check my Steam profile with the same user name as this one, after 900 hours of play, some good 100$ dollarydoos put into this game, I am happy to say I haven't been playing Warframe all that much, in fact,m its been a month since I booted it at all, and have been actively telling people to avoid it due to ABSOLUTE POISON like this. Here's the excerpt:

Might as well not play the game anymore if the most impressive parts of new weapon of the update are gonna get jumped on and nerfed instead of bringing the rest up to its caliber. Or in this case, more like recognizing the place it has on the players.

STOP LOOKING AT STUPID USAGE CHARTS FOR ABSOLUTELY #*!%ING EVERYTHING. STOP ACTING LIKE YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE TRENDING THUMBNAILS ON YOUTUBE THAT ARE MADE TO BE EYE-CATCHY CLICKBAITY "CRAZY RED-CRIT BUILD" INSTEAD OF INVESTIGATING THE PROBLEM, YOU DIDN'T EVEN MANAGE TO GIVE BELIEVEABLE, TRUE CAUSES FOR THE "ISSUE" IN THIS ONE.

It genuinely looks like something a "min-maxer" who is angry about their favorite build not being the only viable one anymore. Did you guys ACTUALLY, ACTUALLY do a damage testing with the Xoris and the frames you are SAYING were getting too powerful for it? Does anyone in your staff that tests this ACTUALLY have the Focus Tree in use? Do you guys know about stat sticks? Because they have been a thing for LITERAL YEARS, they have been dealing DOZENS OF MILLIONS OF DAMAGE FOR YEARS. And the XORIS breaks the META? The XORIS!?!? THE XORIS IS A "use it or you are doing it wrong" WEAPON?! Are you being ACTUALLY for real right now? This is SO MANY MILES out of touch with your own product it is physically hurtful. It sounds like ACTUAL trolling in 2020. A joke. Sounds like some INSANE crazy S#&$ a newbie might spew on region chat. The XORIS is QUALITY over DAMAGE, thats like, ITS WHOLE THING. Its an early-level, easy to do quest that GUARANTEES that weapon. This isn't a CATCHMOON situation. This is an Excalibur/Volt/Mag usage chart situation. This is all so tiring and infuriating.


What about the over 150+ primary weapons that are mediocre right now? So much unique stuff there already in the game, lying unused since 2017 or earlier.
What about the Gas status effect? You built all this GREAT stuff for the rework patch, I SAW NEWS ARTICLES ABOUT IT, IT MADE ME WANT TO TRY OUT BUILDS AGAIN, most of it was reaaally great, some of it was shot into hell, been a long long while that feedback has been sent. HOW ABOUT THAT for keeping players interested and invested? WOW. Maybe we only use a couple of the weapons because the rest suck ass.

Seems like they could. They'll review the stat stick system as a whole now as per tonight's stream.

That's the thing.. Why nerf for overwhelming damage when there are several other, more effective avenues for overwhelming damage that won't be touched? Oh yeah, because rivens = $$$. By the way, I've used the Xoris "as a weapon" and there are tons of other weapons more effective and less clunky. The issue here isn't balance, it's just a premature response to a lot of hype. People love the weapon as a stat stick. People love the stat stick mechanic. Why try to fix something that isn't broken?

It only took 1 month from the Venari debacle. I think we have different definitions of what "quick" means in the context of reviewing the entire system, all abilities, testing them and programming the function for those who didn't have it.

1 month because of venari and 6 years because it was a old as hell problem

people asked to be able to heal objetives but De ignored it, if it was not because DE have a spaghetti code and venari was able to do it this problem should exist even now

To the whiteknight/s in this thread who apparently can’t read the suggestions some people gave I’ll make a list:

  • Xoris with an innate version of Naramon Power Spike
  • Longer Combo Duration instead of infinite
  • Use a % of the combo if certain abilities are used (instead of all)
  • Stronger stats ( so its usable by itself)
  • Get rid of stat sticks entirely
  • Make the rest of the mods usable by exalted weapons
  • Buff exalted weapons
  • etc...

Don't make any changes to the Xoris at all until they go over stat sticks as a whole. That way there isn't an additional bundle of spaghetti code to trip over, when they dive into that monstrosity of conditionals rules and "hidden" mechanics.

MR is a poor excuse for justifying anything, always has been.

Staticor is MR 10 and Ballistica Prime is MR 14, guess which one is better?

Akjagara is MR 8 and requires Akbolto to craft, which is MR 9

Tysis is MR 9 but is often used by endurance runners in extreme high end content thanks to its status output and damage type composition.

Mutalist Cernos is MR 7 and it can kill levelcap demolishers in respectable time, something pretty much no other primary can accomplish

You could probably go on with countless more examples.

Also. Xoris might be a MR 4 weapon, but not every MR 4 player will have acolyte mods that bring out its full potential. So it's not as if new players are handed something amazing on a silver platter

This is not a good change.
This changes NOTHING except makes an arguable meh weapon no longer fun.
The Xorris is not powerful, and the Xorris IS NOT THE SOURCE OF THIS. This build has been around FOR LITERAL AGES AND USED VENKA. I thought of this build back when the Venka released. The Xorris is having a fun little interaction removed when, what? You only had to come out of your Exhalted every Fifteen seconds? MINUTES if you elected to bring the "Combo Decays" passive. Fifteen seconds is a long time in the middle of a mission.
Please don't DE, this is actually fun.

You are right there. This is the only weapon in the game that functions differently per frame. I can't think of a solution that works as a middle ground.

Arbitrations nerf was a mistake. Fortuna week 1 difficulty was a mistake. Calling Venari's healing a bug was a mistake. Nerfing Khora and Limbo because of Scarlet spear was a mistake. Rushing Empyrean was a mistake. The Dog Days balancing was a mistake.

I just don't think this is. And just because this time I don't think it's a mistake doesn't mean I'm a drone unless you happen to think I must always reject nerfs at all times. If this makes me a whiteknight because I am not allowed to agree and disagree individually in a case by case situation then by all means pass on the polish so I can luster the armor. 

I didn't get upset at DE for ignoring the path they had taken with regards to Scarlet Spear, then Railjack before it, then the Old Blood Before it.

I didn't get upset when they released Split Flights without warning that it wouldn't work with Crossbows.

I didn't get angry at DE for the initial balancing of Scarlet Spear.

I didn't complain at the original Lich system having no evergreen value.

I didn't get angry when they reworked Arbitrations by diluting the drop tables while keeping the revive system.

I didn't write a 4 page post listing every single thing I believe DE did wrong in 2019 including possible false advertisement.

By all means, ignore every single criticism I have ever lobbied at DE when it's convenient to do so because you can't even fathom the thought of someone being OK with this change without being a white knight. If your only two choices are "Share my point of view" or "You are a white knight" then you might as well say that you guys are a hive mind with no individual agency or priorities. And I don't want to be a part of that.

If they remove Riven scaling I don't think you'll be able to use that argument any longer. And sure there are much better weapons than the Xoris. It's just that they are likely to be in a higher MR bracket, which means they are expected to be better. And just because people like stat sticks doesn't mean DE are OK with people flat-out only using it for the purpose of being a stat stick and nothing more than a stat stick. I now understand why they didn't add a new melee weapon with the melee MOA.

I don't see how you being efficient with Mesa relates to a mechanic that is unique to the Xoris in that game mode.

I'm not sure if that's good or bad news.

If we go by the Venari situation, it's going to be both. Good for some frames. Bad for others. They'll likely try to equalize.

I had not seen many posts from people asking to be able to heal objectives. In fact, that's something some abilities were able to do. Just not consistently. So I'll take your word for it while taking into account that just like the Xoris, Venari was the detonator that resulted in DE saying they will revise the system. And it only took them a month from there.

That's a fair solution. But that only means increased backlash as time goes on until the behavior is changed. Kuva Bramma only took 3-4 months and people were pissed.

It is not a poor excuse when DE made a public post stating weapon performance ballpark was being tied to MR rank. It literally means that an MR4 weapon is not meant to compete with an MR14 weapon in any way, shape or form. If you find the performance of a low-tier weapon to be lackluster then move on to a higher performance bracket. If you have a problem with this then take it to DE. They make the rules, not you or me. If some weapons are outliers for their expected MR performance ballpark bracket not accounting for Rivens then they should be adjusted. That doesn't change what the design intent is.
