40 HoloKeys \0/

Question

Hey everyone,

After an eternity trying to get holokeys with BAD DROP RNG I finally have my first 40 and I'm wondering which weapon seems to be the most fun to use and with which bonus element toxin I'm guessing.

Looking at them at the moment I'll wait until the timer rolls over the bonus at present seems bad and very low to what I've seen in the past the other stats on the weapon don't change I'm guessing.

Tenet Grigori a bonus 33% electricity, just sounds like a modified poormans Zenistar

Tenet Livia a bonus 48% elec is alright if you were after electricity, not to bad with slash would be nice with toxin.

Tenet Exec seems ok, good crit but at present only a bonus 32% electricity.

Tenet Agendus will be the last one I get looking at the stats the energy disks seem novel at least it has toxin though low.

 

So how has everyone else found them?

Fun to use or just MR fodder?
 

Only reason I'm asking is it took me so long to get 40 holokeys it will be a long long long time before the next 40 at this bad drop rate, I get some for one mission then it doesn't matter how many missions I do after the first no more will drop, which is sad considering how much I like Railjack.

I think your plan to go for the highest stats is the correct one, but IMHO the element itself doesn't matter too much.  The way that I figure it, if I don't like the weapon then I won't use it / perform valence fusion on it, so the element doesn't matter.  If I like it, then I will probably want to max it eventually.  Since I can pick the element on fusion now, I'll just wait for a "good element" next time.

So having tried all 4, I have to say that my favorite is the Agendus, by far.  Its Hadouken gimmick (heavy attack) is basically an Arca Plasmor shot, and the only drawback is that it cannot be spammed (a spinning hammer hit will slip between each shot).

The Grigori and Livia are okay -- I kept them for now, but am kind of lukewarm about them.

As for the Exec...  It just didn't groove with me.  The Slam Shockwave gimmick was okay, but I don't know if it was the stance I used or what, it just didn't feel very effective.  And given the weird double-bladed Gillette closer shave design, it felt more like I was swinging around a Masseter-like Kanabo than a Great Sword.  So I sold it.  If I were to be perfectly honest, I probably just didn't like how it looked...

Tenet Grigori - I don't have high hopes since the crit multiplier is so low, but who knows. Only practice will tell if its competitive with the Reaper Prime/Stropha.

Tenet Livia - No special trait really, but its the new best 2-handed Nikana.

Tenet Exec - Special trait sucks, and stat-wise I don't see it being better than the Gram Prime.

Tenet Agendus - Looks like it would be competitive with the Stropha, but sadly its not. Otherwise its more-than-likely the new best Sword and Shield.

Thank you everyone, I'll ponder some more over them but I guess it'll come down to stats and look in the end.

For me Tenet Exec, kinda like that big ass sword look

Exec seems strong enough to supersede my trusty zaw, so long as I'm not doing stuff that Exodia Contagion would clear faster

It does look weird, hope it doesn't get clogged up with enemy gizzards with the twin blades. lol

Yep considering how BS the drop rate is to get holokeys, I will wait and hope for a good roll, yes I like now how we can choose which element when fusing so if it a big roll but not the one you're after it's good to be able to change it later on, I do that with the sisters gun grab them all let fusion sort them out. :)

Yeah the TG CM is bad on that, though having base slash is a good start I guess.

The TL's gimmick doesn't interest me that much really not bad crit and slash.

The TE at least looks like a weapon, the twin blades good crit, hmmm time will tell.

The TA has ok stats and the gimmick depending how much damage they do might be just a novelty factor.

 

Anyway eventually I'll get them all, I just hope I'm not in a retirement home by then, damn drop rates of holokeys is horrid, if I didn't already have some I'd say BS they don't exist. :laugh:

On the overframe site, grigori is voted as an S tier melee, with Agendus at A tier. I have a tox grigori and its fantastic,

I also have the Agendus with elec and while there's no slash procs, the elec procs are a nice utility. Something different than the usual viral/slash melee

 

AFAIK toxin is probably the most useful element on all them, except agendus which is elec. Im waiting for a 50+% livia and exec and plan to get them toxin.

For end game, the exec is terrible, same for the agendus. Tenet livia and tenet grigori are both slash weapons, so those should be the ones u buy. Tenet livia is the smart choice, as its the best 2h nikana, while tenet grigori is worse than reaper prime

Nevermind, ignore my part about the Agendus. DE has some how made the same F'ing mistake like 4 times in a row, where base damage mods don't affect the heavy attack projectile. So while it is still more clunky than the Stropha, my build is only doing 28% of the damage it should be.

To be honest I'm not surprised, they may be working by the time I decide to get them. :tongue:

Well I got some holokeys after a long long time doing runs and bought myself two so far, going to be a long time to get the next 40. :sad:

 

Tenet Livia bought it the week of my thread with 48% Electricity, it's only at R31 so far, it goes quite well against Steel Path and I love the combo stops counting down when you use a gun.

Tenet Agendus bought it this week with 54.3% Heat, Final Harbinger stance is the best from memory and considering I've only just got it today date of post and slapped on a couple of mods, I think it could be good once it's pimped out

The so called energy disks is a visual joke, (unless at full rank it shines, doubt it) the description no where near matches what it spits out, to what I've observed it's basically just a melee version of a Arca Plasmor with the sound and a badly toned down visual, disappointing really I expected to see some disks flying out in the direction of the enemies, not just one blob of energy. :facepalm:

Oh well back to ranking them up, making use of my 1400 day login I took the 7 days pile of boosters, plus Blessing it should really help.

p.s doing void storms while ranking up nidus sucks balls, 454 armour, 1,347 Health, and Adaptation if it wasn't for my stacks I would have died twice to the damn things popping in and double exploding in my face straight away, think it's back to my tank gal Hildryn. lol

I think the agendus is the best of the bunch , (smooth stance and powerful gimmick) the heavy should be used only when the enemies line up well.

Followed by grigori which has guaranteed slash on heavy attacks and an acceptable stance combo.

Followed by the Livia (poor stance but good stats) and finally the exec which just underperforms for some reason (the shockwave also causes ocassional ragdolling which is counterproductive)

Tenet Livia I like as well and it's gimmick with combo counter, I've used it in Steel Path no problem at low rank, even though it's got me thrown off a cliff a couple of times doing combos. lol

Tenet Agendus I'm loving it now, I have 1 forma on it, it's a thrashing machine with the backup of the heavy attack, both modes kill quite well.

The mods on it at the moment are condition overload, blood rush, amalgam organ shatter, killing blow, quickening, virulent scourge and vicious frost, once I put more forma on it I'll think it will really take off.

I have the bonus of 54.3% Heat so at the moment I have viral and radiation running on it.

I put a R5 arcane strike on the frame and it goes right off doing combos mashing my way through a pack of enemies.

I am waiting on a radiation bonus agendus so I can run viral, rad , electric build.

I too have a 54% heat at the moment.

That's the good thing about them, get the highest now and just change it later on with the choice option 1 or option 2. 

Though with the way holokeys drop it'll be another months again before I get enough. :facepalm:
