While watching the event, I thought to myself "Oh boy, they can´t anticipate the chaos this will cause"!

I am 100% sure there will be so many broken combinations of donated abilities in combination with their augments, causing literally immortal frames or insane damage boosters.

I could imagine though, that they might exclude a few warframes from the donation list for that reason.

 

Now, one question though: They did say that prime frames cannot be consumed. But can prime frames be "upgraded"? Or does the whole system only allow modifications of non prime frames?

Yes, they said your prime frames can be upgraded using this system.

Well if Nezha´s firewalker is confirmed, can you imagine Volt´s speed and damage output with his Speed ability, firewalker in combimation with his passive?

And there we already have a first big "?" 

Will Nezhas firewalker (damage caused by the flames) be affected by Volt´s passive (5 electricity damage per 1 meter traveled)? So rush for 1000 damage, recast firewalker, burn down the whole map, rinse and repeat?

Oh boy.

I'm glad I have 3 weeks to hunt down some of the parts I'm missing.

Me too. Although "some of the parts I'm missing" includes about 1.8 million standing with Cephalon Simaris so it's going to take me more than 3 weeks to get a duplicate of all the frames.

First, let me just say this is a salt post.

DE on Stream: 
"Well actually that sounded too cool to include signature abilities so we're not gonna do that." 

Let us use cool abilities on our favorite frames. Go bold. Once you have end game gear it hardly matters anyway because all the stuff melts to weapons regardless. And bosses are immune to many powers and procs.

I made an edit because apparently hitting control and enter automatically posts. 

I've been there.

I once pressed Tab to write bullet points, and then pressed enter and it got posted...

There is something not right about this whole thing.

1) where can I find "signature ability" clearly stated in wiki for example for each frame?

2) when i google this, first warframe forum post is gone already - why? deleted, removed, censored?! So it is what - whatever DE says and you are not allowed to even discuss it?!

3) I bet "best" abilities will be chosen to be donated - one ability per frame. I mean, why even bother with this to then just spit in players face and make available only ability no one wants on the frame in first place

There were a lot of mixed signals, and a few communicative bloopers, which explains the explosion of threads speculating all over the place.

I am glad to not be alone.

But yeah, honestly with the exception of bosses everything gets melted anyway through weapons. Many enemies are immune to certain status procs and warframe abilities, or they only work with reduced effectiveness. And by the time you're at a point in the game where you're slaying, well, having a celestial twin atlas or whatever doesn't make a huge difference. I can be forced to pick a frame I like less for a mission because it has better suited abilities, but that seems to undermine the point of what this system is supposed to do. And personally? I just wanna be able to get celestial twin on any frame I want because I enjoy doppelgangers. It's hardly a meta. 😛

But designing a system that lets you migrate a frame's power into one of your favorites is about the spirit of letting your favorite frame mimic the cool stuff other frames can do. And I think the update should stay true to the spirit of that design philosophy instead of going barely in and just giving us abilities that are hardly ever used on most frames.

They got merged because people were posting multiple threads saying the same exact thing.

The Halo/Chakram is used in his 2 and 3, and because that is a dedicated part of the frame's design Firewalker is all that's really left since ults are out of the question.

Just because a game gives you a lot of freedom doesn't mean they have to open the floodgates to ridiculous powercreep.

If anyone actually thought they'd do this you kinda are naive. 

I was already assuming they'd let you pick 1 weak ability to mix and match for fun....as shown by Volts 1 already in the livestream. 

Who in their right mind would greenlight giving every frame Saryns abilities?

Threads are being merged for one. They arent all gone. Ten people making the same thread is gonna get merged to stop spam. 

The list is being made and according to Pablo the list will be out in a special dev stream before Aug 25th.

The abilities are what they decide they will be. Until we have a full list people will flail arround regardless. 

You're more than welcome to howl. It wont change anything.

Cheers.

What difference does having Saryn's powers make to my mission success outside of sanctuary specifically? And when you run sanctuary its often piled with saryn's anyway. 

In most missions, having saryn's spore skill wouldn't even be as fast as cleaning house with a fully formad weapon. Her spores can't hurt bosses or eidolyns. And everything put in front of a frame pretty much does instantly if its not a boss or special unit. It's one thing to worry about power creep. It's another to acknowledge it makes almost no difference to most of the game's content besides being cool.

Did you not see that they announced it. Why would naivety be a factor when you're reading it from an official announcement.

It was an example......should I choose a different frame...? Ok....Chroma...

The same of what I said above still applies. Chromas damage adds nothing to my ability to slay things outside of eidolyns except in some very niche and inconsequential cases. That's why coolness is way more important than power creep. I have more than enough damage to absolutely slay nearly everything anyway through forma'd weapons. Which Chroma's passive effects, mostly. Chroma's passive only matters for a couple of boss targets. And most boss targets don't actually reward you with anything substantial. I'm pretty sure that damage is really only helpful for eidolons and orb mother. But even then it's not vital. IE: Rhino. 

Plus we all have chroma. Who really cares if they let us do what's the most fun? By moving one ability of our chose besides an ultimate onto a frame.

It's just gonna be a semantic argument. "Signature ability" could be "we're gonna let you put a frames ability on your other warframe". Not necessarily "we're gonna let you use this specific special ability for your warframes"

I never saw "signature ability" even used in the lexicon until the update. They clearly made a mistake though, it happens.

Tbh, dude we don't need negative energy from players at this point. 
If you don't like the changes and the updates and all the content you are getting, just simply leave. Don't ruin the fun or be a simple buzzkill for our other dedicated and appreciated players.

Being able to freely remove any abilities from Warframes to put them on others would be way too much. With that I could just get Wisp's buff burritos on my Trinity and then I'd have pretty much no have no reason to play Wisp anymore If I could transfer Saryn's spores to any other frame then there would be no reason to play anything else.

No one cares if you think a frame sucks outside of 1 area. That's your opinion you're applying to a specific situation. 

The point is theres no reason for a frame to have a bunch of powerful abilities all in one kit.....
