Warframes "prime-Able" And "nonprime-Able"


Recommended Posts

So I have been thinking a lot about this. I don't know if DE has any plans on making Primes for other Frames, or if it's only for a select few, maybe there could be a different form of the Warframes that were made stronger my the Tenno, the Lotus, or even the Corpus to compensate for the lack of Primes. I would love to hear anyone else's thoughts on this subject.

Every Warframe will get a prime.

Valkyr MAY get a Vandal Version, though Vandals are meant to be specialist more powerful versions that are intercepted by the Lotus. So likely there will be a Valkyr prime, which will have unique animations etc.

Incorrect. Every Warframe up to Vauban is guaranteed to get a Prime variant, whereas everything after have a chance to become Primed, but there is no guarantee.

You're actually incorrect, there was a thread like two weeks or so ago, where someone posted a quote from Rebecca stating that any frame can be primed at any time, and that older ones are just a little more likely.

You misread what I wrote. I summed up what Rebecca said. She stated that all frames after Vauban are eligible to be primed, but there is no guarantee of it happening.

No, there's a picture of her exact words in a thread about whether trinity or Nyx is next. She said herself that any frame can be at any time. There's no guarantee that any before or after will be, not just after.

Valkyr is the product of an already corrupted warframe by the corpus. How come it will get a "vandal" version? It'll definitely be Valkyr prime with some little changes to the skill set

It may be worthy to note, that no matter what the dev have stated, they are entitled to change their minds.

 

Personally, I was hoping that they straighten out the lore, and make decisions on "prime" or not based on that lore, not simply on whimsical preferences of either players or staff.

he told nothing about the timing, only that frames going to be primed, or might be primed. DE stated, that frames that released before vauban, have 100% chance to get a prime version.

 

However, as you said, for example Valkyr prime might be released before Volt prime, but there is a chance that Valkyr prime won't be available at all

No, the Quote rebecca said was there is NO STATEMENT SAYING ONES AFTER VAUBAN WON'T GET A PRIME. Meaning they have as much chance as all the rest. The Devs however, have stated, that every warframe, bar perhaps Valkyr, would get a prime at some point.

Vandal weapons are essentially Prime variants of Corpus weaponry (bar Braton and Lato). As Valkyr is a Corpus type Warframe, it is only common sense that she would likely have a Vandal version instead of Prime

Also, please pay attention to the picture SCP-100912 shared

Rebecca specifically says, ALL WARFRAMES have the potentially to be primed, and that the statement of ones after vauban not being primed, is false.

This means all have the chance to be prime, and will be, and if anyone tells you they wont after whatever point, don't believe them.

I still haven't gottenmy Hotfix Prime to fix the Bug Vandal and Glitch Wraith ...

 

All jokiung aside, DE will prime anything they want, btu will give preference to items favoured by players, they knwo wehat we like throough a system we call "metrics". Metrics exist in every game as a measuring tool of sorts, and if theres a sway in interest towards one frame, DE is more likely to prime that one first, but the next primes are probably already being esigned as we speak, if not further into the design process than we anticipated....

 

We'll see... Soon

Valkyr is not a Corpus product. A vandal weapon is a Tenno upgrade to a Corpus product. Valkyr is still of Tenno/Orokin tech, despite having corpus restraints all over. Giving her an upgrade that treats her as Corpus tech makes no sense. She's in a warframe. Corpus can't make warframes.

 

[size=3]Also, the Braton is manufactured by the Corpus, though based upon Orokin tech. Hence why it has both a Vandal and a Prime. I can't say anything about the Lato though.[/size]

What this guy said. Valkyr will have a prime, which will probably be the most changed out of all primed frames. It will be her pre-capture look, possibly with new skills to accompany it, since her current abilities stem from what Alad V did to her. Edited by (PS4)SCP-100912

No, because what he said implies that Vauban is some sort of benchmark for likelihood of becoming a prime. Rebecca says that statement is completely false and that any frame can be at any time.

Which is still benchmarking it my friend.

And this is why she's eligible to be Vandalized, and also primed. Though for all we know any of the existing female warframes might be Valkyr.

imagine it like this. There's an original valkyr called valkyr prime, and the current valkyr is valkyr vandal because it's already been corrupted by the corpus.

Also, can you imagine prime access turn into "vandal access"? They might have a way into that but that'll just break the tradition.

Vandal items are Tenno altered versions of corpus items. Valkyr is not a corpus frame, her abilities came from her anger at what had been done to her, not because of the restraints that were attached.

Also, last I checked no frame has a helmet even remotely similar to what's left of hers, so none of the frames we have now are her. DE wouldn't pull that on us, they'd make sure we knew "this is what she looked like before Alad V captured her"
