Haze The Kunoichi/Geisha (assassin type for the ninja lovers)


Recommended Posts

Bring back an old concept for those who are new

After doing research realizing that the female ninja were never called NINJA, but Kunoichi they where never liked their male counterpart, let's just say they did other fun stuff, wink, wink! but they did infiltrate through other means such as being a handmaiden to the lord of the castle or take up jobs as Geisha as a spy. but I don't think making a Warframe doing explicit things to get a kill would be fun to play. so I made a utility assassin, so I did my research and would like to see an actual female shinobi kit warframe with abilities, weapons, and techniques. I know Ash was supposed to be that theme. Although, he is my most played warframe I would like to see a female version with a different kit that is thematically a shinobi, since Yareli is another water based warframe besides Hydroid, so why not another ninja in the form of a kunoichi.  Constructive criticism is welcomed and if you think she's to similar to ash please leave a tangible argument why you feel that way.


Design Concept:   Haze would have earth tone colors and I would love to see her armament bottom half give off the illusion of having on a pair of ninja Hakama  and a type of ponytail that looks like the handle of a Kunai with some type of appendage dangling from it maybe a blade or spike and of course her Geisha form doesn't have to fully look like a Geisha. But I would love for her to have an Ibuki feel to her or Akali from league




201011010100.jpgPassive 1: shadow walk – when Haze sneaks behind an unsuspecting enemy in a crouching position, undetected, and unalerted, she can trail behind enemies in complete stealth to all surrounding enemies for 5secs she becomes one with her enemies shadow she can perform special finishers with her warframe weapon the "Cherry Blossom Tanto. Haze will lose her stealth if she gets out of her crouching position or alarms are activated she may refresh her stealth passive by following another unalerted enemy.

passive 2 Kawarimi – Haze is a master of deception when her health drops below 2% she will disappear in a poof of smoke that spreads about 15m choking enemies for 2sec and leaving a decoy log/dummy/mannequin/specter etc. of herself that will draw all enemies near it. Haze will be placed safely underground  where she can move to a safer location, she starts of with 1 decoy at level 1 and obtain a max of 4 at level 30.

  • Planted Cherry Blossom: After receiving a death blow that would otherwise kill her if she has her sentinel Oboro activated Haze is able to use Deadly Ash, or Incendiary Kunai. If Deadly Ash is selected the smoke effect from vanishing is replaced with either blinding Soot, Poisonous Mist, or Acidic Sediment. If Incendiary Kunai is selected the dummy/mannequin will be marked and will detonate upon Haze reappearing. Shadow Carrier ability strength is increased by 100% for 2secs and goes into cooldown once you choose, Deadly Ash or Incendiary Kunai

  •  Passive 3: Feign of Death - When Haze falls below 2% with no more Kawarimi dummies/decoys in her reservoir, she goes into a special death animation by kneeling in a Seiza sitting posture, and plays her Shamisen activating the mini game on her banjo and can lure all enemies around her for a brief moment while playing for every enemy lured to Haze's Geisha form, you gain a number of stacks that restores one Kawarimi decoy. Once she gains a dummy; Haze's geisha form commits seppuku by stabbing herself in the stomach with her "Cherry Blossom Tanto" replacing herself with a Kawarimi dummy that activates Deadly Ash or Incendiary Kunai her real body will reappear from the underground after the activation of one of those two abilities are triggered. If you are unable to lure enough enemies with her Shamisen before timer is up, Haze will still execute the remaining surrounding enemies by blowing up.

You got a point here!
I think they should have done a similar thing way earlier! Beats me!
But on another hand we are pretty weaponless with stealth recently, no good stealth aiding weapons, mods, or warframes...

I love stealth, I'm a space ninja to core, but stealth is real hard now even for old members like me...

Ninjas must deceive and without a way to do so...they are doomed!

I always felt less ninja-like playing warframe, that is what brought me to warframe when I was in the PlayStation store I saw something that said "Ninjas Play for free" BOY...was I disappointed; after playing games like Tenchu, and Shinobido, I scoff at games with so-called stealth mechanics, but I still love warframe, and would love to see D.E get back to cool designs and mechanics,
