Umbra forma is impossible to obtain


Recommended Posts

As were all suffering from not having the primed sure footed mod already

There were couple of times I've reached over 25

but the time-gated nightwave just had to be reset to rank1 in every season

These time-gated chores are what made me quit certain games like WoW

I know there are other contents, but the ultimate goal is you want to get a hand on those umbra forma

to get an actual progress in your account ja?

which is just not happening at all for a person who cant log in everyday

 

Having returned to the game; with absolute no clue of the season's schedule just makes me wanna quit in the first place 

to avoid futile efforts made

TLDR the very least they can do is keep the progress reserved just like the weekly tasks did ja?

what are your thoughts?

Do you know about Teshin and his Umbra rotation? At least this should give you some leeway to get your hands on Umbra.

I used to believe stories like that, until I realized Nightwave is confirmed to always run years now. If you can't bring up the time, you're actually, factually and literally not playing the game. 

So why should you get the forma compared to people actually playing up to everyday? Not to mention acts return if the active weeklies are completed

Seriously, I've never heard people complain about battle passes on games where they run 30 days.. How are they not an issue but Nightwave with its year long duration makes warframe players sick to the stomach? I don't get it.

There's a catch up mechanic now, and this is the best thing they did for people in your situation.

Allowing people to "skip" acts or keeping their progress for the following season would make no sense.
 

They said in a devstream that they're working on tweaking things for the next seasons. Maybe the battle pass system will disapear, but that would be a loss. 
Umbra Formas should remain rare. We've had maybe 9 of them since they first released, and 9 umbra formas is a lot.

@TyeGoo well the key word here is time gated

play everyday for 20mins can get you anywhere but

i could play 24hrs in some days yet insufficient of the task

Even if you can't login each day it'll only take a couple of hours to clear the week's worth of nightwave challenges so I fail to see a problem. You'll at best miss out on the daily 1000 points so like, maybe 5000 lost per week.

With how good umbral mods are, that's appropriate. It's supposed to be hard to obtain. As much as I hate battle pass mechanic, Nightwave is actually good. It has catch up mechanic on the valuable Weekly Challenges. I remember getting very late at one season after a long break and managed to rank up further than I thought I could. If this kind of mechanic that has so much leeway to players makes you want to quit, no hard feelings but maybe you should.

No but like why even make these stuff in the first place

these are not contents but purely chores

Guess you can put grinding a chore but not when youre enjoying it no time limited what soever.

I can grind when i feel like it and get rewards but this??

That's confusing what task? I'm pretty sure max rank can be reached easily in and under 24hrs playtime.. I used to play an hour tops for weekly acts, I skipped a bunch of dailies and weeklies, even elite ones, and I'm already Max rank.. 

Like I said, this intermission will run for a while. Try to combine acts as well for example if the relic act is up, do those in conjunction with exterminate, survival etc acts.

That's why I avoid Nightwave and useing my Umbra forma all together, until there is a actual reliable source for EVERYONE, then nothing gonna do about it. Only reason why I happen to have 4 on me is thanks to both refunding and Devstream rearwards

You don't have to play daily.

It's enough if you can spare some time every 1-2 weeks, nightwave tasks from previous weeks will be restored when you complete 5 of the current weeks tasks.

For some reason tasks stop recovering if you attempt to complete too many weeks on the same week, it might be a bug, but it hasn't been fixed for a long time.

I clear every almost nightwave week in about an hour max on monday.I don't do every challenge because nightwave is so long that last time I stopped doing challenges at all after reaching 30 and I still was +50 at the end of the thing.I am now again at 30 with doing only challenges that were fast/fun.
Umbra forma is rare, yes, but...I have used over 7 and have 3 left now, without rushing or doing anything special - nightwaves, watched a stream, got some alert and a couple from the railjack thing(and I played railjack very very little, maybe 3-4 sessions about 2 hours each)

It's not about logging in everyday or playing more, it's about information. I search from time to time youtube, see "umbra alert" on some video, or umbra forma after a stream or for anything tbh. I play videos while working because I have a second monitor, so my play time the last year is little compared to my watch time. When I see an interesting thing I log in, do it and log out. And even with this I missed 2 umbra forma from the teshin stuff.
If you want information about those things there are a couple of channels but I found OriginalWickedfun to be the most enjoyable (because he doesn't discuss "de bad" or whine about something, he just says a thing that is happening rn and usually the only one who covers even little things that others miss, because they are preoccupied with discussing nerfs/buffs or general things).

Last nightwave ran 8 months or so. This intermission has been going for 2 months and probably go for at least another 2. I've skipped a bunch of challenges and hit rank 30 already.

Nightwave is many things but time gated isnt one of them 😂

First people complain about umbra forma being too rare, and we should get more of it, and now people cry about ot being to common, bruh.

They'll announce the end weeks if not months in advance. 

I didn't do anything in this NW for two or three weeks because I played Remnant (cool game btw) and sat down one saturday afternoon and went from 20 to 28 via catch up until I had three recovered challenges left I didn't feel like doing. Then I waited until the new rotation on monday to get to 30. I know someone who works 12-16 hour shifts even on some weekends, holidays and at night (intensive healthcare) and even she is almost at 30 already.

I don't get it. I wouldn't even compare it to battle passes at this point. There's zero urgency if you do some stuff in it somewhat regularily. Just some neat free S#&$ to pick up sooner or later. But yeah, turns out you actually still have to at least somewhat play to get all NW rewards.

Dude, Nightwave seasons are so long, you can get R30 rewards by logging once a year rofl

And even then, then what ? Umbral Forma are not useful at all to play the game. I have 9 but I'm too lazy to forma anything, all my frames are functional with their Umbral mods and no Umbral forma.

Dude, the last NW went on for something like near a year. People were asking for them to open the max rank cap to what, level 120? And you want people to think you had no chance to hit level around 30? Get outta here with that tripe.

Pretty sure NW seasons are like 6 months long or more and next one might be hinted as tennocon so we might get it in autumn. You dont need to do every challenge every day/week just do what you want / can and umbra formas are not even necesary for most frames.

I know the conclave is an unknown backwater, but Teshin and Steel Path are one free umbra forma every 8 weeks to anyone who wants it.

Going by this, MMOs aren't for you then. Devote your time elsewhere if you don't want to waste it here.

Impossible??

 

More like impossible not to get,considering NW lasts for months and months and more months...

 

I do maybe 1/3 of the challenges a week,and I usually get to rank 30 2-3 months before they end the season  :/

You can literally get four in one month, which happens to be >this month<, the hell are you on about.
