Wow, this is really interesting, I really like the concept of having a death knight sort of character in here.

 

Boiling Blood would be really cool if instead it was an aoe attack that made your enemies blood boil, but thats just me.

 

Really, really cool concept.  That second alt helmet is gruesome and awesome.

I really like the concept and I* would suggest his stats to be standard and have it so that when he uses his "cannibalize armour" power these increase his stats to there.

 

For example he starts with 65 amour and when he consumes a grineer it is boosted (but caps at 190)

Starts at 300 shields and when he consumes corpus it is boosted (but caps at 450)

Starts at 300 health and when he consumes infested it is boosted (but caps at 450)

I wish this Warframe gonna make it into the game without DE screwing him.... like how they did with Zephyr... (MY PERSONAL OPINION, zephyr looked awesome and they make it a Nova with knight armour and a couple of recicled powers... but if people like the actual Zephyr, thats nice and I really hope you enjoy playing with her :) )

The concept is beautiful.  The inspiration is apparent and everything is relevant for his theme.

 

Ability 1: Life Steal - How would this work exactly? Is it immediate or over time? Can you use this on multiple enemies at once if its over time?

 

Ability 2: AoE DoT - No comment

 

Ability 3: Contextual Buff - I REALLY enjoy this ability.  It makes the world feel that much more real around the player by being directly affected by what you're fighting against (in a rather unorthodox, twisted, and extremely enjoyable way)

 

Ability 4: Holy S#&$ - As much as I'd like to avoid just another Nuke, this sounds visually pleasing.

 

 

Possible base stats:  Seeing as he is inspired by smaller organisms with exoskeletons that rely on their individual adaptations to respond to their environment over physical strength and confrontation -

 

Health: 75 (Not physically excellent, fragile under his exoskeleton)

Shield: 100

Armor: 300 (Coinciding with his Exoskeleton)

Power: 150 (The dependence on adaptations over physical ability)

Sprint: 1.0

Very, very cool. I especially like the segmented/layered portions of his armor.

Rogue Legacy has a similar mechanic with the Lich character type in which you can gain max hp by killing, but you start off with lower base value and have the potential to gain a much higher maximum. It could work. The best possible buff would be in void missions, which scales nicely with it being void missions.

1 problem: We have a pistol named Tysis, which is based of Typhus.

 

I would absolutely LOVE to have this in game.

 

There is no word to describe the pure awesomeness of this design

Tysis is actually derived from the root -ptysis, which refers to spitting of matter, and is used as a suffix in certain diseases and conditions, although in this case, it's saying that the gun is actually spitting teeth at your enemies

First off I loved the old designs as well. This one looks polished and ready for Mynki to get his hands dirty.

 

But what backstory did you guys have in mind? Locust was infestation-inspired right? So is this just a regular warframe, and not a Fallen one, like Baphomet in my opinion, or the Oracle?

 

Great concept skills allso!

Love the idea so +1. A couple quick comments:

 

1. Boiling Blood and Cataclysm seem a little bit too close is actual effect. Boiling Blood = AoE DoT and Cataclysm = AoE Initial damage + DoT

I can't think of any good replacement because, honestly, seeing a guy send out bits of flesh to poison the enemy would be awesome. Same with Cataclysm's appearance in-game.

 

2. Typhus is supposed to be a parasite 'frame. Maybe make 1-2 of the abilities give the Viral status effect? May seem a bit OP unless done right, but DE hasn't complained about a possible 99.2% proc chance on the Tysis. Combined w/ Viral damage and you can take any boss solo.

Great work, this frame's abilities remind me of the prototype series and also venom from spiderman. Don't know whether to give him red energy or a purple.

Not too long ago i had a similar idea, but mine involved a tenno who went rogue, to avoid being put down with the ether sword, after being infected with the technocyte virus. I had the idea that he had gained contorl over the virus and was able to overcome the assimilating effects of said virus.

 

One of his powers involved spreading the virus to his enemies, turning them into his own infested minions, but the more i tired to develop him the more he seemed to become like saryn... Anywas i like the concept alot.
