Edit 2:00 PM ET, Nov 17th - The Upcoming Corrections with Regal Aya: Next Steps

Tenno,

Building a new economy is tough. Despite Prime Resurgence being a best-selling Vault debut, we are making changes to what was introduced yesterday in the Regal Aya Packs by adding Platinum. The changes we are making are a result of what you want to see from us as a Developer and what we want for ourselves: good monetization.

Our intentions were always good monetization, but we have some learnings we'd like to share regarding intentions and executions when building an adjacent economy:

We misunderstood what some players valued most in the prior Vault packs: Platinum. We stand by our initial reasoning that Regal Aya was a good value for players interested in flexibility, but we now better understand what other factors our players consider when making purchasing decisions. This value of player purchase flexibility was justified by the sales (as this is our best debut to date), but that honestly doesn't matter if there's still misalignment between us and players who want to support us.

"We want Platinum", said many.
"But these aren't Platinum packs", we'd think.

We don't want this event, which is aimed towards improving the Unvaulting system, to be held back by our misstep on pack value and our rigid (but well-intentioned) thinking in separating the Regal Aya and Platinum currencies. So, we have a change coming:

Platinum will be included in Regal Aya Packs. It will be retroactively given to those who have already purchased and added in as soon as possible for future purchases. A timeline for this will be provided shortly.

We are in the testing phase of this now thanks to our team.

The amounts will be:

  • 3 Regal Aya: 200 Platinum
  • 7 Regal Aya: 400 Platinum
  • 15 Regal Aya: 1200 Platinum

These values were chosen to closely match the Prime Vault, while also accounting for the fact that these are re-purchasable whereas Prime Vaults are not.

The technical limitations related to how our offers are shown in different marketplaces are still in play for how a player will know they receive this Plat, but we will solve this over the coming months. So in many ways, it's an 'invisible' addition until all store-fronts can be synchronized (invisible in store, present in accounts that purchase). Until then, there will be inconsistent presentation across platforms, but the Platinum will be there. We thought it wasn't possible at the time of our last posting, but our team has worked wonders and was able to find a way.

We did not want the Premium currencies to overlap, but players do because of the value in our prior Prime Vault offerings. We are opting to adjust our stance for the benefit of the community at large who weighed in with perspectives and feedback that considered all factors. Those who chose to be toxic will be able to participate in this change thanks solely to the constructive feedback that occurred - toxicity is never tolerated or rewarded.'

Moving forward you will get more value on top of the much-desired flexibility. We apologize for any stress (thanks for those who kept the peace). See you around Varzia, Tenno!


Hey Tenno! 

With Prime Resurgence launching tomorrow, we wanted to answer your requests to (a) add Platinum to the packs and (b) add Accessories Packs with Platinum. 

A. The reality is that for this inaugural launch we are unable at this time (right before launch) to add Platinum to the packs due to technical and compliance limitations across all Warframe’s platforms. We want to avoid doing any changes midway through the event as well, with it becoming a logistical challenge on the backend setup and unfair to the players who were early participants. While it is not possible for this first run, we have pages upon pages of feedback here that will be considered alongside the data we’ll be reviewing once the event has finished. Rest assured the importance of bonus Platinum in the value proposition is noted for next time. 

B. The same reasoning from A applies to adding Accessories Packs - there is still much to consider for an event that has yet to run, but being the biggest discussed point here we know it is desired. But since we are unable to add a Pack at this point, there is no way for us to add Platinum to a pack that doesn’t exist. 

We really want to stress again that this is our first attempt at running an event like this. It has been 8 years of the same Prime Access system and 7 years of Prime Vault, we aren’t reinventing the wheel but we are venturing into an entirely new way to make Prime items available in ways we’ve never attempted before. And this is why player feedback is so vital, we know what your top concerns are and will take it into consideration if we look at a future run of Prime Resurgence. 

We just simply cannot commit to any major systematic changes at this time, because of the reasons listed above and because we need performance data to make educated and informed decisions if we run the event again. These may not be the answers you were hoping for, but for the sake of transparency they are the answers we have to give at this time. We also want to make a point of saying that you as a player have the freedom to participate in any form that is most comfortable to you. With far more avenues of access to free-path Primed items with Aya, you can dedicate your time to building up that Prime inventory that you’ve been dreaming of. 

Thank you for reading and we’ll see you for tomorrow’s launch! 
 


Meet Varzia, former Dax.

A new time-limited scheduled event is landing in Maroo’s Bazaar on all Platforms November 16th: Prime Resurgence!

Not only is this the return of a slew of Prime Vaulted items (and more!), but also the discussion of the Prime Vault program as a whole. In this Dev Workshop, we will be going over several core areas of Prime Resurgence to explain what it is, how it works, and share some insight into the Dev decision-making process. More importantly, we will dive into how Prime Resurgence addresses player feedback about Prime Vault.

But first, a bit of history is needed! 
 

The History of Prime Vault

Monetizing a free-to-play game is a balancing act. Prime Access has led the way for us to being able to routinely release premium content and accessories for players that are looking for Premium fashions (Prime Accessories), while providing all players with free access to some of the best gear in the game (Prime Warframes & Weapons). The Prime Vault program started in 2015 as a way for us to return Prime Warframes, Weapons, Accessories, and more from Prime Access Packs that had gone into retirement. We needed a way for Prime content to make its way back around to players, so that if they missed it the first time, they had another chance to either purchase the packs outright or earn Prime parts via Relics. We kicked this off with the unvaulting of Frost Prime, Reaper Prime, Latron Prime, and the Misa Prime Syandana and continued the cycle ever since, opening up the doors to the Vault every several months throughout the year. 

The Prime Vault program has undergone many changes over the years, all driven by player feedback and requests. To name a few: 

  • Added standalone Accessory Packs. 
    • Prior to this change Accessories could only be obtained through the largest pack available. We first offered this option in July 2018 with the release of Nyx Prime and Rhino Prime, and have continued to offer separate Accessory Packs.
  • Permanently unvaulted Valkyr Prime and Nyx Prime Relics into Corpus Railjack missions to help alleviate the backlog of vaulted Prime content in Update 29.10.0
  • Utilized Twitch Drops during TennoCon to earn Vaulted Prime Warframes for free.
    • Loki Prime, Hydroid Prime, Nekros Prime, and Ash Prime. 
  • Added Volt Prime and Odonata Prime Vaulted Relics to Baro Ki’Teer’s rotation of Offerings. 
    • First appearance in Baro was March 9th, 2018.
  • And many more...
     

The theme here is to offer more choice and quicker access to Vaulted Prime content. Which is where Prime Resurgence comes in…

Prime Vault meet Prime Resurgence

We first announced that we are looking at running a Prime Vault event of sorts on Devstream 156 - and Prime Resurgence is just that! It is our first attempt at offering an alternative to Prime Vault: A one-stop shop to gain access to Vaulted Prime content and Relics with a fully transparent schedule that allows players time to plan.  

Varzia, a Dax from the Old War (who may seem like a familiar face to some), will appear in Maroo’s Bazaar November 16th on all Platforms with Prime goods for you to obtain. You can either purchase Relics from her Wares with Aya (free path) or gain instant access to Prime items and bundles with Regal Aya (purchase path).*

*Currencies are explained further in the FAQ section below. 

One thing we want to really drive home is that there is absolutely no scenario in which a player cannot do what they could do before with Prime Vault. More specifically, Prime Resurgence maintains the same two options to gaining access to Prime goods: 

  • Instant access through purchasing
  • Free path access through gameplay

Pricing specifications and comparisons are available below in the FAQ section. 
 

While Prime Resurgence maintains some things from Prime Vault, it equally addresses some of the biggest feedback points, but on a much bigger scale. 

The Wind in Dev’s Sails

The following two factors prompted a thorough evaluation and consideration of player feedback, which remained at the forefront throughout Prime Resurgence’s development:  

1. Lack of Access

A domino effect has been created with Prime Vault in its current state, which has turned into a cycle of: 

Unvaulting Rotation Cadence + Repetition -> Growing list of Primes in the Vault  -> Limited Acquisition Options

Since 2019, we have only been unvaulting new Warframes with the exception of Ember Prime, Frost Prime (which had been brought back 4 times*), and the currently live Nyx Prime and Rhino Prime Vault. With 24 Warframes and 42 Weapons in the Vault, releasing 2 Warframes and their Weapons at a time means you may find yourself waiting far longer than you’d be willing to for your favorites to come back into rotation. We have run into the issue where we are vaulting more Primes than we are unvaulting, and managing a rotation cadence that can keep up with that just isn’t feasible anymore. 

*Prime Vault in 2020 was affected by the throes of a packed development cycle that had us defaulting to the previous Prime Vault set ups, which required far less pressure on the Dev team. While we understand these were very real reasons for such repetition, it was not ideal and something we’d like to continue to avoid in the future.  

We see this exact situation with Mag Prime, who has had the longest unvaulting gap at almost 3 years since her last appearance. For our Nintendo Switch Tenno, who entered Warframe’s list of supported platforms on November 20th, 2018, they missed the first two unvaultings in 2016/2017 and only had a limited run at the Mag Prime and Nova Prime Vault in 2018.

We recognize how this affects the ways players acquire Vaulted Primes - aside from Unvaulting, the only other opportunities are to trade parts or find and squad up with other players who have the Relics they need. While this player-led ecosystem helps us maintain a free path for Vaulted content in-game outside of the Unvaulting cadence, we are looking for ways to introduce an organized increase of supply for players.
 

Prime Resurgence breaks the cycle of lack of access in the following ways: 

  • Addressing the backlog in the Prime Vault by making a large list of Vaulted items available across all platforms on a scheduled rotation. No surprises, full schedule, easy to follow Event!
  • Addressing the lack of acquisition options by centralizing Vaulted items in-game and offering far more options by:
    • Making Vaulted Relics available for purchase with Aya, which is obtained via free-path gameplay.
    • Making Prime Vault Packs AND individual Prime items available for purchase with Regal Aya
      • Prime Vault does not allow for you to purchase individual items, only tiers of packs. With Prime Resurgence you have the freedom to use your Regal Aya beyond packs.

2. Store & Drop Table Management

Part of the Dev Cycle for Prime Vaults includes a 5-piece store management workload across all our platform partners. We are looking for a way to offset the constant bundle management into a universal new Vault Currency, Regal Aya. This would be a huge improvement for us in how we make Prime content available across all Platforms, as it would reduce the amount of time and resources needed for backend setup.

Additionally, the introduction of Aya in the place of Vaulted Relics means we no longer need to hand-curate drop tables for Vaultings and Unvaultings, since one new currency allows players the choice of what Vaulted Relics to buy. 

Overall, we’re simplifying the process for both ourselves and players! 

Prime Resurgence also gives us a space in-game where we can continue to:

  • Bring back highly awaited Prime items, including accessories. 
  • Provide more flexible purchasing options through Regal Aya.   
  • Allow players to purchase the exact Relics they need through Aya.
  • Release evergreen rewards (rewards that are permanent) in Varzia’s store:
    • For purchase with Regal Aya:
      • Non-Program Prime Gear:
        • Burston Prime
        • Fang Prime
        • Lex Prime
        • Braton Prime
    • Premium Twitch Prime and other Prime Gaming content that has yet to be re-released since their original run. 
  • For purchase with Aya:
    • 5x Orokin Ducats
    • Apris Syandana
    • Necraloid Bundle 
      • Includes Glyph, Emblem, and Sigil 
    • Spektaka Liset Skin

Prime Resurgence not only opens the Vault doors, but also those of opportunity to build on the years of experience improving the systems in Warframe. We prioritize maintaining fair free-to-play and purchase options, something that remains an important part of Warframe’s history. 

Prime Vault (in addition to Prime Access) sales have been incredibly important to sustaining Warframe's development over the years. We are extremely grateful for your continued support and are looking forward to hearing about your experiences with Prime Resurgence! This event will end January 25, 2022, after which time we’ll keep everyone aware of what the future holds! Please keep feedback constructive and remember that the best kind of feedback comes from experiencing the event first hand when it launches November 16th.

Update Nov. 12th - Prime Accessories Adjustments

We have made a change to some Regal Aya item prices - our original intentions were to base prices on the best Regal Aya value per dollar but players have correctly pointed out things should match the Prime Vault Accessories as closely as possible within the new event structure when it comes to the Cosmetics involved. That feedback went into the following changes:

Prime Accessories that were previously valued at 3 Regal Aya have been changed to 2 Regal Aya. This includes:

  • Prime Armor Sets
  • Prime Operator Accessories and the Saita Prime Suit
  • Kavasa Kubrow Prime Set

And for added transparency on specific Regal Aya values per item: 

  • Prime Syandanas = 2 Regal Aya
  • Prime Sugatras = 1 Regal Aya 
  • Prime Sigils = 1 Regal Aya 
  • Prime Sentinel Accessories = 1 Regal Aya 
  • Prime Liset Skin & Decoration = 1 Regal Aya 
  • Prime Extractors & Blueprints = 1 Regal Aya 

We do want to make a point of saying that not all accessories combinations will equal the exact pricing of a traditional Prime Vault Accessories Pack. Item combination is at player discretion since every Prime Vault item will be available for individual selection. The accompanying Warframes in rotations have varying accessory types and amounts. The Nekros Prime accessories, for example, has the Uru Prime Syandana (2 Regal Aya) and the Acanthus Prime Armor Set (2 Regal Aya) for a total of 4 Regal Aya if purchased together through Prime Resurgence. While others, such as the Nova Prime pack with the Edo Prime Armor Set (2 Regal Aya) and the Verlorum Prime Sigil (1 Regal Aya), maintain the 3 Regal Aya to one Prime Accessories Pack value. 

We would be remiss if we were unaware of the reasons for the popularity of Prime Accessories Packs, the biggest being the inclusion of bonus Platinum. To quote from the Workshop; “We simply cannot justify or reason with having players pay for one premium currency to purchase another.” But we understand that Platinum increases the value of the packs for players. While those differences in value vary between Prime Vault Packs and Prime Resurgence rotations, our intent is to establish a happy medium by offering all of the scheduled primed Accessories over several months (with the freedom to purchase individual items). Individual Primed Accessories give players more choice - a new and far more flexible approach to Prime Accessories access. Instead of waiting for a Primed Accessory to become available through a single Prime Vault rotation, you now have the option to hand-pick your favorites from several. 

With the decrease of 3 to 2 Regal Aya for a handful of Accessories, that freedom of choice is increased that much more for players to determine that value where they see fit! The full schedule of rotations (and the Prime Accessories for those rotations) is available in the Workshop FAQ above, so that you can plan your future Regal Aya purchases if you choose to do so!

As stated in the Workshop, we will be intently watching for feedback during and after the event has run and will be reviewing data for future decision making (in the event that we choose to continue with Prime Resurgence.)

Thank you, Tenno!

The following FAQ section covers the more granular elements of Prime Resurgence we feel are important to give transparency on!

What happens in the Finale Rotation? 

The final Prime Resurgence rotation ends on January 11th, 2022, but will be followed by a two week finale for a last chance at all of Varzia’s wares. All the Prime offerings will be scheduled into two parts:

Finale Week 1 = Rotations 1 through 4
Finale Week 2 = Rotations 5 through 8 
*Both weeks will include Nyx Prime and Rhino Prime

So if you missed out during the regular rotations you have one last chance to grow your Prime collection during the event. 
 

What happens to Varzia’s shop once Prime Resurgence ends? 

Varzia is quite comfortable hanging out with Maroo in her Bazaar, so she will set up shop permanently and continue to offer evergreen items for purchase. 

Will Prime Resurgence return at a later date? Will it replace Prime Vault?

Community feedback and overall participation will be monitored throughout Prime Resurgence’s event run to determine if it will ultimately be replacing the Prime Vault program or appear alongside it. This decision will not be made lightly and will require a lot of data before we can make a more permanent commitment. We do anticipate running some Prime Vaults throughout 2022 while this decision is being made, so as to not disrupt player accessibility to Vaulted content.

What is Aya and Regal Aya? 

These are the currencies that are used to purchase items from Varzia! 

Aya is an earned currency that is your free path to gaining Prime items through the in-game Relic system. It is a resource that is exchanged for Void Relics and other non-premium items available in Varzia’s wares. Aya is found in Missions (The Void or Bounties) or has a chance of appearing in Relic Packs available for purchase in the Market for Platinum or Syndicate Offerings for Standing.

Aya will be replacing Vaulted Relics in the Void and Bounties Drop Tables. In other words, where there was once a Vaulted Relic, there will now be 1 Aya instead. And that Aya can be traded in at Varzia to purchase Relics of your choosing during Prime Resurgence. 

The public Drop Tables will be updated on November 16th when the event begins to include Aya, so that you have all the information you need to plan your missions to Aya acquiring!

Regal Aya is a premium currency (similar to Platinum, but not tradeable) that gives you instant access to Prime Warframes, Weapons, Accessories, and Bundles available in Varzia’s wares. It can be purchased in the Market or online storefronts. 

Will new premium currencies be added in the future? 

We have no plans to add more premium currencies at this time. 

Why can’t I trade Regal Aya? 

Regal Aya is untradeable to maintain the premium prestige that comes with Prime Accessories. In principle, all Prime Accessories have remained a cash-only transaction, and Regal Aya continues that since it is paid only. 

Why Regal Aya and not Platinum? 

As mentioned in the Workshop above, we needed a way to offset the store-management issues Prime Vault has while maintaining the value of all Prime Accessories. 

What happens to Aya/Regal Aya after the event ends?

Since Varzia’s shop will remain open afterward the event ends with limited selection, you will be able to use your remaining Aya/Regal Aya if desired. 

Similar to other in-game events/operations, with a special event-only reward shop, once the event concludes so do the ways to acquire the event-currency. That said, Aya will no longer be able to be acquired in Void missions or Bounties or in Relic Packs and Regal Aya will no longer be able to be purchased. 

Will more things require Regal Aya in the future? 

Regal Aya will always be exclusively tied to the Primed Resurgence content. In the event that we continue with the program, things within the Prime Vault would be added to Varzia’s offerings and require Regal Aya. There will always be evergreen rewards that will remain in her shop after the event is over.

What requires Aya vs. Regal Aya to purchase? And why?

All of Varzia’s wares maintain their previous acquisition methods. If something was purchase-only via Prime Vault, it will appear in her shop as such (Prime Accessories for example) and will require Regal Aya to purchase. While others that have been previously released through a free-path method, will maintain that as well using free-path Aya.
 

Why are certain vaulted Warframes not available through Varzia? 

Since we aren’t committing fully to Prime Resurgence returning until we complete this first run, we want to make sure there are Prime Warframes that can continue under the Prime Vault program. The decision making process simply involved seeing which Warframes were recently vaulted or unvaulted, since the gap from being available to Vault isn’t as extreme. The following Warframes fall under these two categories:

  • Recently Vaulted:
    • Equinox Prime - 23/02/2021
    • Wukong Prime - 25/05/2021
  • Recently Unvaulted:
    • Banshee Prime - 15/12/2020
    • Mirage Prime - 15/12/2020
    • Chroma Prime - 27/04/2021
    • Zephyr Prime - 27/04/2021
       

You may notice that Nyx Prime and Rhino Prime are not included in the ‘Recently Unvaulted’ list, that is because they will be available during the finale. Since Nyx Prime’s Relics are already permanently unvaulted via Corpus Railjack missions, and Rhino shares a pairing with her, we were able to include them as part of Prime Resurgence with little added work involved. Considering these two have already had all of the background setup done prior to the event, it was a quick and easy add. 

How does Pack pricing compare to Prime Vault? 

Regal Aya Pack prices are valued as closely as possible with what you could get before in the Prime Vault Packs (keeping in mind that Bundles will always have the best Regal Aya value vs. individual purchases). That was a major priority when determining the exchange of Regal Aya to premium purchases in Varzia’s shop. 

Let’s get into the specifics and price breakdowns (using USD as reference):

Taking the current Nyx Prime and Rhino Prime Vault pricing: 

  • The Rhino Prime and Nyx Prime individual packs = 39.99 USD
  • The Rhino Prime and Nyx Prime individual Accessories Pack = 19.99 USD
  • The Dual Rhino Prime and Nyx Prime pack = 59.99 USD

Each individual item has the following Regal Aya values: 

  • Prime Warframe = 3 Regal Aya
  • Prime Weapon = 2 Regal Aya
  • Prime Accessories vary based on size and type, with the values potentially being: 
    • Prime Accessory = 1 Regal Aya
    • Prime Syandanas* = 2 Regal Aya

Update Nov. 12th

We have made a change to some Regal Aya item prices - our original intentions were to base prices on the best Regal Aya value per dollar but players have correctly pointed out things should match the Prime Vault Accessories as closely as possible within the new event structure when it comes to the Cosmetics involved. That feedback went into the following changes:

Prime Accessories that were previously valued at 3 Regal Aya have been changed to 2 Regal Aya. This includes:

  • Prime Armor Sets
  • Prime Operator Accessories and the Saita Prime Suit
  • Kavasa Kubrow Prime Set

And for added transparency on specific Regal Aya values per item: 

  • Prime Syandanas = 2 Regal Aya
  • Prime Sugatras = 1 Regal Aya 
  • Prime Sigils = 1 Regal Aya 
  • Prime Sentinel Accessories = 1 Regal Aya 
  • Prime Liset Skin & Decoration = 1 Regal Aya 
  • Prime Extractors & Blueprints = 1 Regal Aya 

We do want to make a point of saying that not all accessories combinations will equal the exact pricing of a traditional Prime Vault Accessories Pack. Item combination is at player discretion since every Prime Vault item will be available for individual selection. The accompanying Warframes in rotations have varying accessory types and amounts. The Nekros Prime accessories, for example, has the Uru Prime Syandana (2 Regal Aya) and the Acanthus Prime Armor Set (2 Regal Aya) for a total of 4 Regal Aya if purchased together through Prime Resurgence. While others, such as the Nova Prime pack with the Edo Prime Armor Set (2 Regal Aya) and the Verlorum Prime Sigil (1 Regal Aya), maintain the 3 Regal Aya to one Prime Accessories Pack value. 

We would be remiss if we were unaware of the reasons for the popularity of Prime Accessories Packs, the biggest being the inclusion of bonus Platinum. To quote from the Workshop; “We simply cannot justify or reason with having players pay for one premium currency to purchase another.” But we understand that Platinum increases the value of the packs for players. While those differences in value vary between Prime Vault Packs and Prime Resurgence rotations, our intent is to establish a happy medium by offering all of the scheduled primed Accessories over several months (with the freedom to purchase individual items). Individual Primed Accessories give players more choice - a new and far more flexible approach to Prime Accessories access. Instead of waiting for a Primed Accessory to become available through a single Prime Vault rotation, you now have the option to hand-pick your favorites from several. 

With the decrease of 3 to 2 Regal Aya for a handful of Accessories, that freedom of choice is increased that much more for players to determine that value where they see fit! The full schedule of rotations (and the Prime Accessories for those rotations) is available in the Workshop FAQ above, so that you can plan your future Regal Aya purchases if you choose to do so!

As stated in the Workshop, we will be intently watching for feedback during and after the event has run and will be reviewing data for future decision making (in the event that we choose to continue with Prime Resurgence.)

Thank you, Tenno!

A Single Prime Warframe Bundle in Prime Resurgence is valued at 6 Regal Aya and includes: 

  • 1x Prime Warframe (3 Regal Aya)
  • 2x Prime Weapons (4 Regal Aya)
    • So you are getting a 1 Regal Aya discount. 
  • 10k Endo (Bonus!) 

A Dual Prime Warframe Bundle in Prime Resurgence is valued at 10 Regal Aya and includes: 

  • 2x Prime Warframe (6 Regal Aya) 
  • 4x Prime Weapons (8 Regal Aya)
    • So you are getting a 4 Regal Aya discount. 
  • 50k Endo (Bonus!) 

*And each pack includes its own collection of accessories. 

There are 3 Regal Aya packs available for purchase: 

  • Regal Aya x3 = 19.99 USD
  • Regal Aya x7 = 39.99 USD
    • Getting the value of 6 Regal Aya when purchasing two of the x3 pack, with a bonus Regal Aya.
  • Regal Aya x15 = 79.99 USD
    • Getting the value of 14 Regal Aya when purchasing two of the x7 pack, with a bonus Regal Aya.


Meaning Regal Aya values equals to the same in the current Vault pricing:

  • Purchasing a Prime Accessory Set = 3 Regal Aya or 19.99 USD
    • The same as most individual Accessories Packs. 
      • Note that this varies for some Prime Accessory Bundles, require 4 Regal Aya (ex. Nekros Prime Accessories) 
         
  • Purchasing a Prime Warframe individual pack = 6 Regal Aya or 39.99 USD 
    • The same as an individual Prime Vault Pack with the added 1 Regal Aya bonus if you purchase the x7 Regal Aya pack. 
  • Purchasing a Dual Prime Pack = 10 Regal Aya or 79.99 USD 
    • The same as a Dual Prime Vault Pack with the added 5 Regal Aya bonus if you purchase the x15 Regal Aya pack. 
       

Can you buy multiple Regal Aya packs? 

Yes, like Platinum Packs, you can buy multiple Regal Aya packs! As a currency, you can acquire and hold it in whatever amounts you need for your desired items.  

Why did you include Endo in the Packs instead of Platinum like in Prime Vault? 

Generous amounts of Endo were added to the packs instead of Platinum because we simply cannot justify or reason with having players pay for one premium currency to purchase another. When looking at how this affects pack value, we want to make clear that the decision was made to maintain existing values with how it relates to the Prime items in bundles (and how that relates to their Regal Aya value). Endo and Platinum are both bonuses added to the pack at no additional cost to the player. 

Not only that, but Endo is an incredibly important resource needed in powering up your Prime gear with Mods. It’s addition into the packs was made with the intention of giving you the tools you need to get your Arsenal ready for The New War. 

Will unused Regal Aya be refundable? 

No, unused Regal Aya is not refundable. So if you wish to purchase Vaulted items be sure to use your remaining Regal Aya before the event comes to a close on January 25, 2022. Evergreen rewards will be available afterwards to spend whatever is left over if desired. 

Are the Prime Weapons and Warframe Mastery Rank locked? 

They work the exact same way as current Prime Access and Prime Vault, a player can purchase a pack and all its gear regardless of Mastery Rank.  

Do the Prime Warframes and Weapons come with Inventory Slots, Orokin Catalysts and Orokin Reactors? 

Yes! If you purchase a Prime Warframe or Weapon with Regal Aya, it will come with an Inventory slot and either an Orokin Reactor or Catalyst already installed. 

How will this affect the Trading of Prime Parts? 

In terms of how Prime Parts are traded, nothing changes with Prime Resurgence. You will still be able to trade the Prime Parts that you earn from Vault Relics. 

This Event will create more supply, but it is time limited, and players can continue to set and engage in value systems that they feel are fair. 

Will Prime Noggles be available through Varzia’s shop?

Yes, but first, the history of Prime Noggles… In 2018 we started to deliver Prime Noggles to player inboxes as a surprise, unadvertised thank you for purchasing Prime Access/Prime Vault packs. We have continued to do so at the end of every year. 

That said, we are making Prime Noggles more widely available (and for the first time, players can get multiples) for the first time through Varzia’s shop during Prime Resurgence. The Prime Noggles that will be up for purchase match the Prime Warframes available during Prime Resurgence. 

We will still be continuing to thank our Prime patrons via inbox, with some slight changes. Any of the Prime Noggles that appear in Prime Resurgence will only be available through the event, and any Prime Access packs and non-Prime Resurgence Prime Vault packs that were purchased this year will have the related Prime Noggles sent to them to continue the tradition. 

When can I start earning Aya? 

Aya will be added to the drop tables (The Void or Bounties) on all Platforms on November 16th (start of the event). 

Will Regal Aya be available for purchase through Steam?

You will be able to purchase Regal Aya from the site using Steam Wallet! Regal Aya Packs will not be available on the Steam Storefront to purchase (due to technical limitations). 

What happens to the Vaulted Relics we purchase with Aya after Prime Resurgence? 

They remain in your inventory permanently! You buy it you keep it.

So can the bundles be obtainable through gameplay, or is it only the frames and weapons that have the non-paid currency with this event? If the latter, then this event is rather pointless for me as I already have all of the primes as is...

I think the only thing obtainable on this event are the relics, while the bundle cost real money

I don’t want to be that guy, but could you make a video explaining this? I personally feel it would be a much better format to help explain the post, as the whole thing is rather confusing even after reading it several times. 

I'm sure a Warframe content creator will make a video about it. Though a official video would be cool.

Aya is an earned currency that is your free path to gaining Prime items through the in-game Relic system. It is a resource that is exchanged for Void Relics and other non-premium items available in Varzia’s wares. Aya is found in Missions (The Void or Bounties) or has a chance of appearing in Relic Packs available for purchase in the Market for Platinum or Syndicate Offerings for Standing.

 

can u give us more detail and more info on which mission and how to get it?

WHERE CAN I FIND AYA?
During Prime Resurgence, Aya will drop in place of Void Relics during Missions in the Void, as well as Bounties. You’ll also be able to acquire Aya through Relic Packs in the in-game Market.
For more information on Drop Rates for Aya, please see here.
 
Well? Where is it? it's been 2 minutes already.

You got me all excited to buy prime accessories, then you dropped the price tag. $20 for one item? When I can get the full accessory pack for the same price?

That's total BS.

I'm at the point where I'm missing literally ONE prime item that comes from relics, so the Aya is largely useless. Meaning I'll have a ton of it and no reason to spend it. But the Regal Aya I actually care about, I can't afford to buy!

Megan and Rebecca will be going over it tonight on Prime Time at 7 PM ET https://www.twitch.tv/warframe  I'll share the clip here afterwards!

Yep, completely agree, I was supposed to learn infos about drop RATES for Aya, but there's nothing interesting here. Liars, yet again.

Additionally, the introduction of Aya in the place of Vaulted Relics means we no longer need to hand-curate drop tables for Vaultings and Unvaultings, since one new currency allows players the choice of what Vaulted Relics to buy. 

I hope this doesn't mean the publicly accessible drop table listing is going to be abandoned. It's been integral for user created web tools like the Warframe Reliquary.
