Specters of the Rail: U2.1

Recommended Posts

Specters of the Rail: U2.1


Nekros Changes
Desecrate:

  • Desecrate is now a toggle ability! Energy (or Health if you use the Despoil Augment) are consumed on Desecration. 
  • Corpses that enter the Desecrate radius will be eligible for desecration. The first corpse 'heats up' slowly for a couple seconds and then the rest occur in rapid succession (like popcorn).
  • Each enemy desecrated will now cost 10 Energy (or Health if the Despoil Augment is equipped). This is affected by Efficiency Mods. 
  • Health orbs are no longer guaranteed drops from Desecrated corpses. They are now tied in with the chance for additional loot drops.

Shadows of the Dead:

  • The number of Shadows spawned has been reduced to 7 and is no longer affected by Mods. This is a necessary change for performance on all platforms. To compensate for this, Nekros now spawns stronger Shadows prioritized by heavy unites killed with Shield multiplier and draw aggro more heavily. 
  • Shadows now live until they die with Health decay over time that is affected by Duration instead of Strength. 
  • Shadows of the Dead can be recast while active to spawn new Shadows to replace dead ones, and refill the Health/Shields of the current Shadows. 
  • *Recasting Shadows of the Dead will also teleport your Shadows to you within limits. (if they are >10m and <40m away)
  • The Shield of Shadows Augment has been reviewed to maintain efficacy with these changes. 

Other:

  • Changed Nekros’ Despoil Augment to reflect his Desecrate changes. 
  • Nekros’ Shadows of the Dead Augment - Shield of Shadows - now displays current % damage mitigation as a HUD buff. *Please note that the % scales with power strength.

We welcome your feedback on the Nekros changes here: 

Changes

  • Vaulted Relics will now appear in the Codex (ie: Relics that are not currently in circulation that you may own).
  • The Codex section for Relics and Arcanes will now show items you've discovered but don't own (like Mods do so you can see the drop sources to farm some more).
  • Tweaked the TennoGen Mesa Falcon Helmet tint.
  • Updated the TennoGen Rota Syandana materials.
  • Increased the brightness of the Guides of The Lotus Sigil.
  • Updated the Burston mesh in the Stalker diorama. 

Fixes

  • Fixed Dark Sector Credit rewards being unintentionally cut in half.
  • Fixed Grineer Napalm and Scorch’s targeting/shooting you through walls. 
  • Fixed "Space-time Distortion" as seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPhCAH8yWq0.   
  • Fixed Archwing Impact, Slash, and Puncture Mods giving incorrect bonuses to stats. They were giving flat bonus rather than percentages as intended by the precedent set by all other physical damage mods  (Comet Blast, Quasar Drill, Zodiac Shred, Meteor Crash, Nebula Bore, and Astral Slash are all +90%).
  • Fixed clicking ‘Deploy Extractor’ on Eris resulting in Phobos - Sharpless initiating.
  • Fixed The Jordas Verdict not showing the proper Trial icon in the Codex.
  • Fixed incorrect materials on Paris Prime and Lex Prime attachments. 
  • Fixed Arid Eviscerators and Hellions not spawning on Mars.
  • Fixed players joining your squad after you’ve changed your matchmaking from Public to Solo while the Star Chart is open and returning from a mission. 
  • Fixed the Nova Asuri Skin arm effect not matching your Energy color. 
  • Fixed the Shaku not attaching properly to Warframes when using the Nunchaku Standard Holster.
  • Fixed only one item per category being successfully traded if the receiving player has that particular category empty on their account.
  • Fixed pet imprints not showing up in inventory immediately upon claiming them.
  • Fixed Grineer grenade countdown beep not matching up with the countdown blinks.
  • Fixed the Sedna Junction task ‘Collect any 3 MODS from the Orokin Principle challenge rooms on LUA’ not progressing if you collect 3 of the same Mod.
  • Fixed Nekros’ Desecrate pickups not being shot upwards for Clients.
  • Fixed Sortie missions switching to incorrect Factions. 
  • Fixed laser sounds sometimes not shutting off when lasers are disabled in a Spy Vault.
  • Fixed a crackling noise when firing the Latron Wraith while using Loki’s Invisibility or Ivara’s Prowl. 
  • Fixed enemies sometimes spawning many ragdolls when applying a killing blow that severs the body as they're getting up from an unconscious ragdoll state.
  • Fixed not being able to scan Derelict Cephalon Fragments.
  • Fixed text sizing issues in the Codex.
  • Fixed extra Codex entries for the refined versions of the AXI V3 Relic.
  • Fixed the Foundry displaying items you don’t need to craft Blueprints.
  • Fixed a crash that occurred during a Sortie mission. 
  • Fixed numerous localization errors.

Thanks for thinking about the augment! It appears to be affected by power strength stat now :)

Keep up the good work, can't wait for coming updates! :heart:

How or why did changing Paris Prime materials also nerf its crit chance by 20%?

Not cool, Paris now has 25% crit chance (down from 45%), please fix :[

===MOD EDIT===
Hi, [DE]Taylor here! The Paris Prime stat change is a bug. We're working on a fix. Thanks for your patience, guys! :)

Looks like a good set of changes overall. I'll be looking forward to getting my dusty old Nekros out of the Love-Cupboard~

Nekros' changes seem fine, one of the main complaints against SotD is how dumb the shadows use to be (sometimes they run for cover instead of look for enemies). Was it improved? (Hopefully a stealth buff) or has there been any talk about making them smarter? Or at least on giving us a way to command them, so we can set them to "stand ground", "defensive" or "aggressive" setups based on the mission and how it goes. I guess something like that would be welcome not only for SotD, but also for specters and companions.

I'd like to point that Rathuum enemies seem smarter than normal ones, so I guess improving ai fighting by our side is still possible

Thanks for the fixes and improvements

Yay for the rework! And for the fixed materials on Paris Prime and Lex!

Boo for the lack of Nekros PBR though. I was hoping </3

 

just kidding. Now it's all a matter of waiting 14 days for the Prime...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't we supposed to get some augments today as well? Is there another update later today?

 

EDIT: Just found the info, looks like its in another week or two

So basically, you've now made archwing IPS mods worthless, like they are for the rest of the game. Why?

Can we get more details on this? Specifically how we can increase the dmg reduction now that power strength doesn't affect # of shadows.

Dang, was kinda hoping for more :( Can't truly enjoy the Nekros changes since I don't wanna pump more forma into him right before the prime.

Thanks for the update though, keep up the good work guys.

Looking forward to Syndicate melees and tennogen stuff hopefully soon, and Titania when ready.
