Weapon Designation: Melee, Glaive.

Manufacturer: The Son, Deimos.

...you had me at Deimos =D

The animal cunning of the symbiote far surpasses that of its former host, though it is certainly missing all aspects of typical sentience. The creature can learn quite rapidly how to adjust itself to various defensive measures to get at the tasty snack that lies beneath.

The Osteolys ignores bubble shields and penetrates through enemy-held blockers such as grineer shields and corpus helmets. It cannot cut through the environment, enemies themselves unless killed on hit, or placed obstacles, such as blunts unless it is given actual punch-through. 

 

...Oooh, this sounds fun =D

Spoiler

When dealing the killing blow to an enemy unit, a single “offspring” splits off from the Osteolys and begins orbiting it in the manner of a butterfly from Titania’s ability. The offspring then orbits the Osteolys as it flies, slowing over time as it degrades due to a lack of a nurturing environment, though it will speed back up again if it makes a kill itself. If no kills are made for a duration, the offspring’s accelerated metabolism causes it to burn out into particulate dust. Only a maximum of three offspring can be in flight at a time.

 

...again. This sounds so fun.

Sure, MAYBE as a reskin for the Cerata, but, I think the bonuses added with such a change might be a weeeeee bit to. . .drastic, to say the least.

...I am profoundly glad you didn't make it a stat skin. This is so much better as it is.

  Heh, go figure! You unleash a weapon from the dangle fingers of the father, I finally get to put up a piece from the claws of the son! Perfect storm!
 

 Heh, I was hopping so! I tried to harvest as much data as I could on the Jug’s own weapon before I put it in metaphorical Tenno hands, turns out what I could fine was conducive to fun times to be had!

The multiple glaives the bugger hocks up was a bit harder of a mechanic to implement, but, happily, recalling the name itself (Osteolys is medical Latin for “Bone Split”), the answer was suddenly obvious. Look for a week mook in a crowd, toss the blade in, let the bloodshed spiral out of control with each inevitable death that occurs in the to-and-back-again whirlwind. Bonus points then that the whirling meatblender is apparently also fun to boot!

 

Really? PHEW! That was a big debate for me last night after all this time spent working on it, deciding factor on how to categorize it here. Good feedback to hear!

 

Heres holding I can continue to smooth production out as my job continues to settle into my life, or, the other way around, don’t actually rightly know which is which these days.

Will certainly be getting back to your neck of the woods suh! Passed through recently when I was looking at new postings, saw that Entrati pistol of yours in addition to quite the wonderous view count that continues to ever-grow! Looks like all that time spent on improving your drawing technique is paying in full dividends!

Which one, the Spartoi or Ossuaire?

  I saw the Spartoi in passing, but I read through the Ossuaire good and proper while I was looking through current events.

  Hey there folks.

  Sorry about the time gap that’s been going on, but, things have been hectic and stressful as of late, so, I haven’t. . . bah, you get the point.

 

  Been curious as I’ve been mulling over one of my upcoming weapons and catching up on updates from everyone, do you folks think I can improve on my style to make it more “inviting” to read? 
 

  Almost a half decade has passed and the world has changed, Warframe has changed, the people that come and go from Warframe have changed, though some remain from the bygone era I hail from.


  Is my Pit outdated to modern interests? Is it not done in a style modern fans find interesting? Is it that updates have become infrequent due to life’s intrusions? I’m curious. Folks don’t seem to organically stumble across my Pit and commentate about it like they once did, so it seems like something, somewhere, has changed.


Thoughts folks?

Do you ever feel weird about how old some of the balancing is at the very, very beginning of a thread?

I mean, I've been around for half of WF's lifespan. You... a bit moreso. Back when I started my thread, a regular auld non-prime Pandero was a great sidearm!

I could help you out by adding a visual component to this. It'd even be done for old stuff so you can maximize the amount of content. 

I do sympathize. There were a few pages I went through that felt weirdly dead, and then all of a sudden I got a lot of activity. I don't quite know what that was about. This was partly because I tagged people, but a few people I didn't tag came on.

Maybe you could try and do a promotion of some kind. Make a separate thread, link to yours, and say it's the xth anniversary or whatever of this thread. I change the title of my thread everytime something new happens, and add the newest content to the beginning.

(Blasted glitch killed my near-posting, felt drained on seeing that, so, dropped like a brick, sorry!)

 

 Heh, for some of my more mundane weaponry, things have always been the way they are, with me trying to maintain the balance as it is in game and compensating for that with significant and graphic (in a good way. . . usually) descriptive detail. There ARE some that your statement does apply to for sure though, the Overseer comes to mind on the first few pages.

  As always sir your offer is always helpful in the extreme, I just need to do MUCH more with your own work first in addition to browsing my selection for things worthy of your talented time.

  Ell, that’s more then likely WHY you have your audience of fellows who pop up with your work, your balance tween story and artwork is unique, especially in the modern day where few of us survive. Those tags may tell their tags about you and so on and so forth in a cascading wave of awe.

 

. . . hmmmm. . . several salient points! Not only have I not commented as much on other’s work in here as of late like I once did (a nasty revelation for me), but, it is very true that I never really advertise my latest creations either! It’s always been my thread strand popping up and it’s either me giving an apologetic update, or what they hope to see, new content.

  I think I’ll test that out in the future Mr. Wolf! Thanks for being around, even for my most basic “update” entries and drifting thoughts!

That's doable. . I can come up with weapon designs drawings all day, and even if I have issues coming up with Corpus and Grineer weapons, it still comes fairly easy.

At least in comparison, because statting and creating a gimmick is actually the hardest part for me. Unless I'm deliberately trying to make the stats do something funny, like adding in headshot multipliers, a cooldown time, blast radiuses, adding some multi-element silliness like guaranteed status procs or a blast radius that procs a different elements, (Like the Cenotaph) or purposely adding in punch-through specifically because the gun would feel so much worse without it, stats just feel less interesting than the fluff, art, or gimmick.

I think this is partly because stats in WF feel so... malleable.

So as it is I have more revolver drawings than I know what to do with. I've got like... seven drawings of revolvers, three of which have no crunch. Yet.

Don't even trip, dawg. I know what it's like to feel that drained. I had the perfect combo for a lich, I would swear up and down I had it right... then it was like the requiem changed when I wasn't looking at it and then I had to kill this annoying AF lich again. And they glitched so I couldn't kill them once!

It might not be anyone's fault, but it just.... throws off your rhythm. You know what I mean?

Though I should probably point out I'm not that good at practicing what I preach, normally I just make new threads when it's something bigger than a new gun (an open-world, a Frame) and I'm very bad at commenting on other people's stuff.

  (I think I have my sleep schedule to blame for my poor response times right now, sincere apologies!)

 

  Do you. . . actually need help in the statistical department? I may have all my work I’m working on, but, there’s a heckuvalotta it (aside from PROJECT: Twin Eagle anyway) that I can freeze to easily make time!


FULLY understand that rhythm feeling suh! Reminds me of a really profitable Deimos mission I was on where I got stuck in the ground and effectively had to “jettison my load” to escape. THAT actively put me off Warframe for a bit.

 

  OH, yeah! I did that once for my Restless Depths Update once! Not many folks commented on it then, so, I’m curious as to what might have been the turn-off.

 
 Hm. . . sounds like something we can BOTH work on then! Commentary from us helps cultivate other folks with their own vision of what can be, things we may never even think of! Reminds me of the old times With Mr. Jado and Mr. Crow. Such memories!
