      HOW TO: Claim Livestream Platinum Prizes   31/03/16

      Hello fellow Tenno! Decided to make this guide after receiving multiple private messages and seeing multiple threads on how to claim plat prizes during official Warframe streams. Please remember to refer to the images in the spoilers for more information. Please Note: To be entered into a Platinum give-away on the Warframe Twitch Channel, all you have to do is log into Twitch and watch the stream. Despite what you may see in chat, there is NO requirement to post anything in chat. 
      Step 1:
      If your Twitch name is called out on a official Warframe livestream (Xbox 1 @ 1 / PS4 @ 4 / Primetime / Devstream), you will need to message the Warframe channel with your in-game alias and the platform you play on (PC, XB1, or PS4). To send a message select the "gear" icon at the bottom left, just under the stream window:
      Step 2: 
      Once you have selected the gear icon as shown above, click "message" to open up the editor:
      Step 3:
      Send a nice message to DE with your in-game alias and the platform you play on. Once you've done that click "send":
      Step 4:
      Be patient, once the message has been sent all you need to do is wait patiently and give [DE] "Ember Prime Ginga Ninja" Megan time to dish out the goods. You should have your plat within 24 hours provided there are no emergency issues at DE. If you believe you have been forgotten and it has been 3-4 plat-less days, then it might be a good idea to contact [DE]Megan on the Forums for an update on the situation since no one likes having platinum in limbo.
      Step 5: 
      Enjoy your winnings, Tenno!     [written by Community Moderator / Senior Guide NovusNova]

In my opinion, the best defense is a good defense. Since I'm 9 pages in and have seen about two pieces of "original" creations, while most are just blatant steals from other games (or yet another polearm, like we need more of those) I'm just going to blatantly steal from our OWN game. Originally. :cool:

Just_A_Shield.jpg

Here we have it boyos. The good ole, state of the art Shield-shield.

As we can see, rather than taking something random lying around (a pole, a whip, an axe, etc) and adding an axe to it, labeling it as a "Tenno"-alignment weapon, we have here a bonafide classic, a random-&#! slab of metal with some peekaboo eye-holesies, labeled as a Grineer weapon, as the peel, lick, and slap label of Grineer Superiority is located on the top right corner.

Below, we will discuss the details of this fine-&#! piece of weaponry.

OFFENSIVE CAPABILITIES:
As you can see, this is a blunt weapon. No, there isn't a needle hidden somewhere to add puncture. No, there's not a buzz-saw that pops out and eviscerates foes when you use your finishers on them. To be perfectly blunt, this is the most original non-deviantart un-special not-tumblr weapon that could POSSIBLY be added to warframe going into update 20-something.

So it doesn't have a hidden blade, or some kind of gun?
Didn't you just read the last paragraph? No, this thing's a fine-&#! classy woman, she doesn't need to carry around blades and guns and whatnot, that's what she has her man for.

What about a hidden laser?
Pls oh gawd no. Just a slab of metal.

What if we mounted a turret on it?
Stop guys. Really please stop.

Why don't we make it summon a torrent of water to blast foes away?
What on earth is wrong with you? It's just. A slab. Of metal.

If we're going classic, can it actually copter?
Yes.

Faction: Tenno

Brief Description: Messoris The Messoris is one of the Tenno's lost relics. Legends says that this Great Scythe was used in rituals of purification. Utilizing Heavy Blade Stances, the Messoris focuses in Critical and Slash damage, while swinging at enemies with great speed. It also has a unique feature: For each enemy killed, the Messoris absorbs their souls. Performing a Charged Attack with the Messoris while the combo counter is above 50 will release a soul wave that destroys everything in its path. Each charged attack will increase the critical damage by 50%, but will also reduce the combo counter by 50.

Name: Dual Argos 

Faction: Tenno

Grip-type: Dual Swords

Build requirements: Dual Zoren / x10 Argon Crystals / x5 Gallium / x3 Nitain Extract

Description: Dual hatchets made from Argon Crystal. 

Mechanics: Primary damage is Slash. 'Blocking' charges the weapon's Slam Attack multiplier. Slam Attack releases a wave of argon energy which crystallizes the enemy. When crystallized, the enemy is immune to status effects, but physical damage is multiplied by the attack multiplier. Crystallized enemies shatter when killed and have a rare chance to drop Argon Crystal. Shattered enemies are immune to Nekros' Desecrate.

The Ranger

Faction: Tenno

Brief Description: The Gun/Blade weapon remains in its straightened position during normal attacks, acting as a normal melee sword weapon. When the weapon fires, the bottom trigger is depressed, causing the sword to flip downward in to its gun like mode. The second trigger pull fires a high caliber pellet spread with punch through effects. After firing, the triggers are released and the weapon returns to its upright position. 

Unique to this weapon, it can be modded with a stance mod for a standard sword, or a stance mod for use as a gun/blade.

Faction-Infestation

Created by the lost weapons of solo Tenno attempting to face Lephantis, the Dual Kamas, Dual Skana, and Orthos have fused together through Infestation. The weapon can be used as pole arm with the Bleeding Willow stance, or as dual scythes with the Crossing Snakes stance. The weapon is conjoined at the center to resemble Lephantis's Infested Grineer weapon, meaning it is always sheathed while the weapons are joined, no matter the stance. The tendrils that protrude off the sides of the weapon hang loosely. While Channeling, the gaps inside the scythe blades flow with energy; the conjoined area while in pole arm form also glow. The weapon has heavy Gas damage with high status chance. 

 

This is the raddest out of the bunch! A most excellent weapon!

Name: Magnetic Dual Blades

Stance: Dual Sword 

Faction: Tenno / Infested

Description: Designed by early Tenno as an experimental weapon against the first appearance of infested hoard. These blades were designed to take advantage of magnetic energy,  holding floating blade pieces in proper form without needing a full blade, allowing a much faster and lighter weapon to be created with magnetic energy to aid in the attack against larger and more aggressive infested. These blades were once lost in the ruins of old battles against the infested but have since been unearthed and brought back to the Tenno. One of the blades has however, become so overgrown with infested biomass that it is now a living weapon, with two mouths spitting out aggressive tentacles that hit like steel whips. 

Off hand blade remains unaffected by the infested, allowing the weilder to fully appreciate it's traditional Tenno design and the soft glow of the magnetic energy holding the blade pieces in place as well as the glowing magnetic reactor core in the hilt of the blades handle.

Designed to have a high attack rate, high critical and moderate to high status effect % with a low to moderate base attack.  Magnetic status effect comes standard with this weapon, obviously with the game designers option to allow viral or corrosive damage from infested blade. Infested mass  growing on weapon should resemble bulbous tentacle masses and swimming fishlike creatures like in the floor of the cyst removal room of landing craft. Upper mass has two mouths facing either side of blade, actual attacking tentacles from charged attack should launch from these. Sliding attack should become a stabbing lunge and ground slam attack should cause magnetic pulse, damaging nearby enemies and causing extreme damage to shields. Add infested chirping sound effect to such attacks or at random during weapon attacks. 

 

This blade is not a whip sword. Based on dual heat swords. I'm color blind so that's up to someone else sorry

I suck at drawing/art, but lets see if I can get my concept across :) 

========================================================================================================================================

Stance :Staves

Faction : Tenno

Description :

- Impact damage without channeling

- With channeling blade opens up and there is a vortex ball that pulls enemy to the weapon deals magentic damage

- Unchanelling while enemy is stuck on the weapon will deal impact damage

- Enemies that didn't die will unstuck from the weapon

- Can pull up to 3 enemies

- Can swing with enemies still attached to the weapon, more enemies attached, slower the attack, higher the impact damage. 

- Can pull down ospreys and other flying enemies

LXZC3Pq.jpg%20%20cho no renchi the japanese translation for gut wrencher uses the pole arm stance to create an accurate sweeping motion of a real sycthe. This weapon uses slash damage with the status effect of corrosive damage . It uses a sweeping motion to slice enemies in half while its finisher uses a tri twist point to pierce the enemies skull the corrosive animation manifests on the top and bottom of the sycthe . This is a grineer based weapon

Agony

Ysw2DpF.jpg

Excuse potato drawing because I am not an artist.

Faction: Infested. Agony is an infested maul that uses the hammer grip type.

Description: “A twisted amalgam of bone and sinew grown from fragments of ancient infested, Agony is a vile hammer that feeds on pain - be it that of its victims or its wielder.”

Agony vaguely resembles an ancient Earth kanabo. Underneath the bony outer carapace, infested tissue can be seen pulsing, hungering. Agony grows spikes and glow with the weapon’s energy color when channeling and retract when channeling is disabled. Agony features a unique combat loop: the Tenno sacrifices warframe health to deal extra damage to enemies while channeling. When injured, they use charge attacks and ground slams to inflict bleeding upon their foes. Striking bleeding enemies restores their health, allowing them to channel again to deal extra damage. The cycle of pain continues.

Mechanics

  • High IPS damage, heavily weighted toward puncture.
  • Slow striking speed, but long reach with both normal swings and ground slams.
  • Extremely high channeling multiplier.
  • Does not consume energy while channeling, instead consuming the warframe’s health with each enemy struck by a channeled strike.
  • Warframe health cannot be reduced below 2HP by Agony’s leech effect.
  • Agony loses its channeling bonuses if it cannot leech HP from the warframe.
  • Striking enemies that are bleeding restores a small amount of health to the warframe for each enemy struck.
  • This effect only works while Agony is being wielded (ie: not quick melee).
  • If the warframe is bleeding, Agony’s channeling damage multiplier is increased.
  • Ground slams and charge attacks have 100% chance to inflict bleeding on all enemies struck by the blast.
  • Ground slam impact area is denoted by a temporary infested “meat carpet”

Uses Galatine grip

How it works:

That sword have stage-mechanic. When tenno kill with sword 3 enemies in 10 seconds the sword get 1 stack (expand size and damage range). 3 stacks maximum and their count display on sword!

After 3 stacks reached, tenno could use charged attack - send two energy waves (looks like excalibur exalted blade attack). After charged attack used - stacks reset (size and damage range also).

Faction: Orokin (Pre-Sentient prototype)

Description: Early weaponization of what would later become the Sentient.  With each strike, this rapier changes damage types to exploit the weakness of its target.

I wasn't satisfied with how this turned out, so I reworked it.

 Gladus & Dendra

 Faction: Corpus 
Weapon type: sword and shield
Description: After the Corpus saw the destructive power of the serro, they developed the Gladus & Dendra,
to improve the survivability of the Prod Crewman.

Description of the Weapon: Since Gladus is basically the sword equivalent of the Serro it will deal electricity damage.
To give the shield a purpose blocked damage should either restore your shields and if you are already at full shields create overshields
or converte the blocked damage into additional damage.
