Mix And Match Warframe Powers? Aka Create Your Own Frame?


Recommended Posts

Allowing you to cross abilities from different fames would just result in a horribly OP setup being used by everyone, and some frames got lower base stats to compensate for better abilities etc, being able to load up rhino with mprime, vortex, stomp and descertate would be imba.

It really wouldn't be cool to mix and match warframe powers.

 

1) It'd make frames with lower stats useless... Since why pick a frame like Nyx with 300 health, 300 shields and 15 armour when you could pick Rhino with 300 health, 450 shields and 190 armour.

 

2) Certain abilities would be pretty much "Must haves" since some abilities are arguably far stronger than other frames abilities for the same slot - For example Decoy for #1 for utility of Tail Wind #1 for mobility.

 

3) You'd get some really OP combinations like Energy Vampire + Roar + Vortex for solo infinite ODD. Or Energy Vampire + Bastille + Radial Disarm to turn any mission into a skeet shoot.

 

4) It'd make no sense. Lorewise each individual tenno has an innate affinity for specific powers, which are then honed and fine tuned by the frame they use to direct them into being focused and defined abilities.

My thoughts on this whole matter would be to leave each frame with 2-3 unique powers, and cluster similar abilities into a single ability mod. Ember Fireball, Volt's Shock, Ash's Shuriken etc as one set, Slash Dash, Rhino Charge as another. Not all abilities would work on all frames, but each would have 5-6 abilities available. This would reduce the number of ability mod cards in the game, while setting up a system for a little customisation with alternative 'standard' abilities for abilities 1 or 2.

Mixing abilities - way to OP

 

Having more than 4 abilities per frame would be great, but if you add just one extra potential ability per frame, you then have to come up with over a dozen new abilities appropriate for the extra potential slot, and this would multiply by each extra potential contemplated.  It's a huge amount of work, and while nice, it is something that could be refined "down the road" from where we are now.
