(PSN)Evilman520 Posted July 6, 2014 Share Posted July 6, 2014 Okay, so we have an assassin for the Orokin, The Grineer, the Corpus, and even the Corrupted. Now, it's time to make the Infested assassin -or assassins. Here's an idea set to challenge teamwork and cohesion. The Infested Predator and Ancient Guardian Lore: The Infested Hive Mind has been thrown off-balance. Your actions have disrupted the unity of the Infested. Now, they seek to assimilate you into their mind, to repair the damage you have caused. The Ancient Guardian, and its loyal Predator, are tracking you throughout the galaxy, to capture you and turn you to their cause. They are merciless –even to their brother Infested, and will stop at nothing to find you. Description: The Infested Predator takes the form of a large Infested Charger with black armor plating to distinguish from others (slightly larger than normal Chargers, but smaller than Phorid). The top of the Predator is lined with a row of razor-sharp spines, which can be used for either melee attacks, or launched as a ranged attack. Additionally, attempting to jump over the Predator may cause damage to the player if their warframe comes into contact with any of these spikes, as well as a chance to proc a poison effect. The Predator’s main duty is to seek and destroy any enemy of its master, the Ancient Guardian The Ancient Guardian takes on the form of a large white Infested Ancient, with rows of spikes lining its back and shoulders. Unlike a typical ancient, this one does not have a tentacle-like protrusion for right arm. Instead, the arm has hardened and evolved into a deadly scythe, which it uses to hack away any nearby threats. This ancient also has the ability to spit corrosive acid onto faraway enemies, giving it surprising ranged effectiveness. This particular ancient is much more powerful than the others, and possesses several abilities which radiate outwards from it. The first is a red aura, which will dispel any Warframe caught in its radius. The second is a blue aura, which will disrupt nearby Warframes and electronics, destroying lighting as well, to darken the room. The third, is a dark-green corrosive aura, which will do a moderate amount of corrosive damage with a 100% corrosive proc chance. Additionally, a tether will be seen between the Predator and the Guardian. As long as the Guardian remains alive, the Predator will receive major constant healing. Prerequisites: The Predator and Guardian are a pair of highly-evolved infested, who have been charged with maintaining order within the Infested Hive Mind and locating suitable candidates to assimilate. If a player has disrupted the Hive Mind, by either destroying any of the Alpha Minds (Lephantis or Phorid) or by diminishing the Hive Mind’s strength too much (completing 5 or more Infested Outbreak missions) The Lotus will contact the player, warning them that the Infested are tracking them, and attempting to assimilate them into their collective mind. The Predator and Guardian will only spawn on Dark Sector or Infested Outbreak missions. Upon arrival, the player’s screen will distort slightly and turn a yellowish-green. A loud audible cry will be heard throughout the map. The targeted player will also have a thick cloud of spores circling around them. Additionally, all nearby Infested will immediately stand down, and refrain from attacking, or retreat entirely. Their Alpha has arrived, and they would not dare take the prey of their alpha. The target player will receive three taunting messages from the Guardian, informing them of their misdeeds and their need to replace that which they have destroyed. Finally, The Lotus will contact the player and inform them to run as quickly as possible, or risk being infected by the Predator and the Guardian. Fight and Abilities: The Predator and Guardian are here for one purpose: to infect the target player. The Guardian will sic its faster and more agile pet Predator onto the targeted player. The group’s main priority should be to eliminate the Guardian as quickly as possible, while keeping the Predator away from its master. The Predator’s armor is invulnerable to damage, making the legs, back, and neck its only vital points. It is best to have the targeted player draw the predator away from its master, while the others focus on taking down the Guardian. Players should also take this time to eliminate any Infested in the area, as they will not remain idle throughout the entire fight. The Predator will continuously stalk the targeted player, ignoring all others until it has successfully taken down its target. Along with swiping claw attacks for minor to moderate damage, the predator has other methods of which to counter more elusive prey. It can use its massive strength and weight to stomp hard on the ground, knocking nearby players to the ground. It can also launch the razor spines on its back, which act similarly to Psychic Bolts, used by Phorid and Nyx. The Guardian will radiate one of its three auras every five seconds: Red, then Blue, then Green. Players are advised to time their attacks carefully, so as to not get caught within any of the three auras. Melee attackers are strongly cautioned as well, as the Guardian’s Corrosive aura and scythe arm can deal a massive amount of damage. Poor timing could lead to an early grave. The Guardian’s acid spit will deal a moderate, but survivable amount of damage. Once the Guardian falls, the Predator will let out a large, enraged scream, stunning all players, regardless of range, and rallying the other Infested to its side. During this time, the Predator will attempt to leap to and pin its target to the ground, pummeling it for massive damage (around 1000-1200). If the player survives the assault, they will be freed and able to continue attacking, or retreat to gather their strength. Other players should use this time to either burn down nearby infested, or the Predator itself. The predator will continuously attack and attempt to leap back onto its prey to pummel it once again. At 50% health, the Predator will scream again, spawning another wave of infested. Continue assaulting the Predator’s vital points, while avoiding its leap attack, to take the beast down. Victory and Defeat: If a player is unsuccessful, and is killed by either the Infested Predator or Ancient Guardian, they will be immediately ejected from the mission, and receive a message from The Lotus, informing them that they have been infected with the Technocyte Virus. This will reduce the Warframe’s health by 60% and armor by 30% until removed. The player will be given a craftable antivirus, which will require them to gather 2 sunlight dragonlilies, 2 moonlight dragonlilies, 2 sunlight jadeleafs, and 2 moonlight jadeleafs to cure themselves of the virus. If players are successful in defeating the Predator and Guardian, they will drop an Orokin Cell, one piece of decorative spiked Infested Armor, and a chance to drop a blueprint, handle, or blade for the new Nemesis Scythe. (Predator will drop an armor piece, while the Guardian will drop the blueprints). That's all for now. Please leave any questions or comments below.
