Evariskitsune Posted April 10, 2014 Share Posted April 10, 2014 (edited) Warframe concept: Weapons based sniper(Images to be added if/when I am able to get decent concept art.https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/216616-requesting-fan-art-of-concepts-since-i-cant-draw/Basically I noticed two things; first of all a lack of love for snipers in the game, with only banshee being a sniper based at all (and is really more of a sniper/ AOE caster) frame, as well as a disparity of a female stealth frame. So I tried to come up with an idea to fill both gaps while leaving the frame with a weapon focus.Balance comparison: Banshee and Ash.Warframe name: Vixen (Thankyou Wildcarousel for the images!) Stats:Health- 75 (225 at rank 30)Power- 100 (150 at rank 30)Armor- 20Shield capacity- 100 (300 at rank 30.)Sprint speed- 1.2Stamina- 80Polarities- 4x power, 2x tacticAura polarity- 1x tactic1st ability 25 power; Modable: DurationRanged Affinity: improves accuracy to perfect and removes recoil on weapons for 2/5/8/10 seconds and reduces reload time by 5/10/15/20%. Animation would be a simple glow effect that would move from the warframe into the weapon/weapons. (cannot be used in conjunction with Predator's Gaze)2nd ability 50 power; Modable: DurationPredator's Gaze: Highlights enemies in line of sight for all members of your team, increases damage by 5/10/15%, and increases rate of fire by 5/10/15/20%.; Lasts for 2/5/8/10 seconds. Animation would be faint lines moving outward (1 second from cast to target) until they reach all enemies in line of sight and upon contact create the highlight effect. (Cannot be used in conjunction with Ranged Affinity)3rd ability 75 power; Modable: DurationIllusion: Leaves a decoy in place with 150/250/350/500 HP, increases Vixen's sprint speed by 10%, and renders Vixen invisible for 2/3/4/5 seconds. Animation would be a mild flash of light, a warping of space around vixen, and the creation of a look-alike duplicate 0.5 meters behind Vixen as vixen shimmers and becomes invisible.4th ability 100 power Modable: Duration, range, powerFoxfire: Nine wisps of flame appear around vixen before expanding and exploding into a conflagration, dealing 150/250/350/500 blast damage to all enemies in a 5m radius of Vixen,; and blinding all enemies within 50m for 2/5/8/10 seconds.; Vixen also rapidly leaps in the direction of her crosshair, up to 10/20/30/40 meters.Appearance description:Sleek female frame, symmetrical design, with more angular shapes to the warframe's armor. Would appear to have a long tailcoat. Stock helmet would have two point on the helmet that would look somewhat like ears. Overall the look would be more plain aside from animalistic features (perhaps with a tail even, though this might go too far for some). Height and build would be similar to Mag. (Honestly speaking I'd love it if there was more details to the ears and a tail(/s)... but I'm not sure as to the community's stance on kemonomimi.) Generally speaking, sleek, sexy.... foxy is a good term here as for what would ideally be done. After all, it's in the name in a sense.Warframe Profile: This is Vixen, the cunning hunter, Vixen isn't about attacking an enemy head-on, but instead uses stealth and an the use of weapons at long range against her adversaries before they can even see her. Ranged Affinity guarantees every shot will hit right where they were aimed. Predator's Gaze allows Vixen to scout for her team, highlighting enemies and increasing the likelihood for delivering killing blows. Illusion allows Vixen to escape unnoticed, and deliver a swift takedown against any adversary. Finally Foxfire allows Vixen to get out of an opportune situation, damaging and stunning any adversaries around her. Choose your prey carefully Tenno, and leap upon them when they least expect it.Codex: Vixen utilizes any weapon at her disposal to the upmost ability, delivering accurate killing blows at any range.Lore: Much of the time, it is not the strongest hunter who survives, but the most cunning. This was proven in Earth's evolution. Among mammals, two species flourished beyond any other, coexisting wherever they may be, though rarely ever seeing each other. To humanity, their always near, though usually hidden companions became a symbol of hidden cunning, of many aspects of their own nature. These notions were not lost to the Orokin, when they designed the warframes. Specifically one more suited to the more cunning of the Tenno who returned from the void, who could focus the majority abilities on the use of familiar weapons, improving on their natural skills for concentrated destruction. Vixen was the outcome. A stealthy hunter with no equal at what she did.Input is definitely welcome. Really the idea is for a weapon-based stealthy sniper. So ideas would be great.
