By The Numbers: Warframe Powers

Recommended Posts

Ever want to know exactly how many times Nekros players cast Desecrate over a two week period of time?  Well your unusually specific curiosity is in luck!  This week on By the Numbers we take a look at Warframe Powers and how players use them.

 

Check out By the Numbers: Warframe Powers and enjoy our bite-sized look at Warframe's statistics!

Noticed Excalibur Prime wasn't on the equip time/exp gained chart. Was he lumped in with Excalibur?

So, just so we're clear here:

 

Desecrate was incontestably the most-used skill of all Warframe powers within the sampled time period.

Meanwhile, Nekros is one of the least-used Warframes (don't forget to add the number of Primes to their non-Primed variants, since most players trade one for the other as an upgrade).

Corrected for frames with the same name/toolkit:

Saryn - 15%

Nova - 10%

Rhino - 9%

Loki - 8%

Frost - 6%

Vauban/Ash - 5%

Trinity/Mirage/Mag/Nyx - 4%

Nekros/Mesa/Ember - 3%

 

Excalibur Prime is conspicously absent, probably because of his rarity putting his presence at less than 1%.

Almost every Warframe with a Top 5 Power was used more often than Nekros (Saryn was used 5x more often), but Desecrate is used nearly twice as often as Miasma.

 

Anybody else seeing a serious disconnect here?

These results have been tampered with. Loki prime master race is obviously the most used frame

 

Funny. How many kills do those Loki abilities get?

I can definately say rep farming has skewed the results of this poll. Just looking at excalibur alone along with trinity.

 

 

But Dat vauban tho.

I played a Nekros in a 20 min Survival a few times. 

I had used Desecrate nearly a thousand times by then. That is almost once every 1.2 seconds. 

I believe it.

I like how this basically proves Nova isn't OP.

This is something I've been trying to point out for a while. Nekros needs to move beyond being Desecrate bot. I don't care what other people think, Desecrate needs to change into something not at all related to mod, resource and life support drops. These things just need to drop more often anyway. Then he can finally get the attention he still needs to be a good frame.

Just wanted the facts presented by DE's reliable, internal, statistical data to be spelled out, for those who spout such nonsense as "Desecrate spamming isn't a problem", or "Desecrate spammers are doing it wrong", or "I mainly run Power Strength on my Nekros and I am representative of the whole base", or "Nekros players are just mad that they aren't Nova players"...

 

All of which I have actually seen on these forums, and more.

 

I don't know what kind of proof the zealous and hysterical need to be convinced, but the best that either side is ever going to get is right there. And it agrees with every complaint ever made about Desecrate.

 

DE just made my day.

I can't imagine we make even a singular percentage point. Too few of us exist.

Proving that p42w is a thing even though many purport that it is not in fact how the majority play SMH.

p42w?

 

Edit: Oh, Press 4 to win, i thought you meant P2W and there was a typo.

And still  Desecrate spamming isn't viewed as an issue??  

 

come one the nekro is basically a desecrate bot , one that's most commonly macro-ed . 

 

just make desecrate a 30-60 second  aura or just get rid of it entirely

Tail wind is the most used ability?

Wut.

Whenever I play Zephyr I bounce all over the map with Tailwind and Divebomb, if you're not maxing out her power duration you're not doing it right
