      Getting Support - Common Issues   04/20/2016

      Have an issue? Unsure if we can help? Warframe's support team can assist you with the following common issues and concerns! 

      *Take care of reading through the instructions before sending in your Support ticket. An organized and detailed ticket will better help the agent answer and fulfill your request.* 
      "I accidentally purchased the same item twice."
      Before sending in a support ticket please choose which item you would like to keep and start using it! Support tries to have as little impact on your play time as possible; we're able to see which of the two items you aren't using and remove it from your inventory (even while you're logged in). 

      Please note: We will not perform refunds on items that have been used - Leveled items or items with any Affinity are not eligible for refunds. 


      "I accidentally purchased an item and would like a refund" 
      Platinum refunds can usually be processed, as long as you submit your request immediately after your purchase and the item has not been used. 


      "I sold an item by mistake, is there any way I can have it back?"
      Absolutely! In order to have the item restored please contact us as soon as possible after the sale - we have a limited window of time allocated to reversing this process.

      Please make sure you have an open Warframe / weapon slot for the item(s) you sold. Should you not have enough slots available at the time of the reversal, we will contact you to let you know that you need to make room in your inventory. 


      "I started building something in the Foundry that I didn't mean to."
      If the item is finished, please do not claim it. We cannot refund foundry items once they are claimed by the player. Unclaimed items will have the full construction costs refunded.


      "I purchased a skin, but I can't find it."
      Before sending in a support ticket, go to your Arsenal and browse for the purchased skin. You can search for and equip skins by clicking on the Appearance tab next to the item you want to customize.  If you experience difficulties, contact Support and we can verify that you have the item and further assist you with equipping it. 


      "My mod is missing" or "I fused a mod by accident!"
      Should you find you are missing any specific mod, please provide us with the name, rank, and the day you last saw the mod in your inventory. If you have an idea what mod it might have been fused into, please do not perform any more fusions; if a fused mod is fused again into a new mod, it cannot be recovered.
      "I accidentally used a Forma on an item!"
      If you accidentally polarized your item, please file a support ticket immediately and refrain from using the item in question until we get back to you.

      In the ticket, please specify the item that you applied the Forma to and what polarity you intended to add.    "I didn't receive my rewards from the event!"
      We kindly ask you repeat any events/missions if they are still available. Please keep in mind that we are unable to advance you towards the next step/level of the event (if there is one) and cannot change any end of mission scores. If you are still missing rewards after repeating, please wait until after the event has ended and the rewards have been given out. Once the event has concluded contact Support as soon as possible. 

      Since certain events have immediate rewards while others do not, please check our website / Forums / social media for any announcements about the distribution of event rewards.


      "My game crashed during a mission” or “My game was unable to update the account information and the progress was not saved.”
      Depending on the mission you played, try to re-join the session to receive your rewards. Please note that only the end of mission rewards (5 minute / round rewards) are recoverable. Pickups from the mission itself cannot be recovered by the support team.  If you are crashing or experiencing errors regularly, please create a support ticket in the most appropriate technical category so we can do our best to help you solve any networking / system problems you are experiencing. If possible, please also send your EE.log in a ticket immediately after the incident. EE.logs can be found in /%localappdata%/Warframe on your PC. 


      “I want to change my email address / delete my account”
      If you wish to update your account’s email address or have your account removed permanently, you will need to contact support and verify that you are the account creator.   “I have purchased Platinum/Prime Access, but have not received it yet”
      Usually purchases are applied to your account almost immediately, but depending on the payment method used (i.e. mobile payments) it can take up to 48 hours for your order to appear in-game.

      If you have not received your purchase after 48 hours, please create a ticket with the following information so that we can assist you as quickly as possible: Choice of payment service (Paypal, credit card, etc.) Date and time of payment Screenshots of the confirmation for the purchase, including the transaction/order number Mobile phone number used, if payment was made through mobile service Item purchased (Prime Access Package, 1000 Platinum bundle, etc.)   Experiencing issues that were not listed above? The following links are also at your disposal: Support’s Knowledge Base: https://digitalextremes.zendesk.com/hc/en-us  Trading Guide - FAQ, Tips, and Guidelines: https://forums.warframe.com/announcement/44-trading-guide-faq-tips-guidelines/   Got a problem? We can help you!

Any point in keeping a frame if you have the prime?

Question

That depends on how much you value the game`s contents as a collector. Some people like my self Keep every Frame/Weapon despite having their stronger Wraith/Vandal/Prime counterparts.

Just make sure you have maxed out that gear before getting rid of it for Mastery`s Sake.

Well it depends.

I keep both versions of a prime frame for more build variety, and for testing out more fashion frame setups etc.

I keep the normal weapons for collection's sake though, and because I like the look of some of them.

It all depends on if that's what someone wants to do. I personally sell my normal 'Frames and weapons when I get the Prime version, but others may want to keep both versions because of how much time/platinum was spent on giving the original version the perfect build, they want the normal version to have a different build than the Prime version, or they just want to have everything in their arsenal.

That being said though, if you don't have the plat to spend on all the slots and potatoes (or haven't been through enough Gift from the Lotus alerts to have enough catalysts/reactors), you might want to "upgrade" to the Prime version so you won't have to either buy plat or hope to do well in the trade chat just to have enough slots.

Nope.

If you want the original looks, then you can just equip that to your primed version.

 

If I get an item's prime/prisma/wraith/vandal/dex counterpart, then I trash the original. Only time I keep the original version is if it is unique in its own way (Snipetron & Machete) or ends up getting used in a different item's creation.

I keep both versions each with different sets/polarity builds.

for example-

if I am going stealth I take loki prime, and if disarm build it's regular loki

that way I'm more free and safe when DE goes and decides to change (buff/nerf/or complete overhaul) abilities.

and you can squeeze out the most from a frames build.

I mean you could use the non primed one as a host for the helminth virus, whenever the implementation for that comes around. That's what I'm doing.

Different polarities. My regular Rhino is a dash polarity which I use in Raids to run corrosive projection/energy siphon while my Rhino Prime is my main build with a Y polarity. I also just keep certain frames because I find they look better than their primed counter-part like Valkyr for example.

Before DE added a toggle button for displaying or hiding Prime Parts, part of the reason to have both was Fashion Frame.

This is no longer the case (thanks DE!)

But I've been finding with all the great TennoGen items in addition to the Deluxe Skins there's still more than enough looks than I can usually fit on one frame even with 3 loadouts.

So if that matters to you, then maybe worth keeping both.

Otherwise, the only other factor really is Build Diversity.

Some Frames can have multiple build options occasionally with wildly different polarities. 

Now I am no expert on all of those to the point of being able to list them out, and imo a large part of the fun and "growing up" in Warframe is coming up with personalized builds anyhow.

But forma-ing in polarities for build diversity could be a factor too. But that also is totally up to you as well.

For the most part, I guess it really depends a lot on how much "stuff" you want to have in your collection/Arsenal. And how often you're comfortable with using Plat to get more slots for said stuff.

A little note about the cost of slots for Plat.

For Warframes you can buy 2 Warframe slots for 12p.  Edit: 20p for 1 Warframe Slot, 2 weapon slots for 12p.

Once you start getting Relics and running Fissure missions it's not exactly hard to scrape together enough Prime Parts to sell on Trade to make 12p 20p when you want to. 

Even if no one is wanting the exact parts you've got you should still find someone that wants to buy them as so-called "Junk" which they'll simply convert to Ducats at a Relay when Baro visits so that they can buy his items. Usually to turn around and sell those in turn for Plat.

Which again if you're interested in doing you can cut the middle-man and do yourself.

So like I said, if you want to make some Plat in-game, it's not so hard to make enough just to keep yourself in slots, heh.

Cheers!

p.s. if at the end of the day, if you don't like to look or play-style of a Frame, then just rank it up and cash it out.

No Reason to ever play a Frame you Do Not Like.

I replace them; it saves me the cost of a Warframe slot. 

Exactly my reason to ask, I don't care about collections of frames, I've sold 3 already cuz I don't like them.

But yeah I ended up selling Saryn now I have the prime

I think you wanted to say that you get 2 slots for Weapons for 12pl and for each warframe 20 pl.

My vanilla banshee is built for sonar build while my prime banshee is built for RQ.

 

Sometimes, it's actually worth it to have both vanilla and prime versions. :3

Oh No, haha, you're right. I totally biffed that up.

20p for 1 Warframe Slot, 2 weapon slots for 12p.

Doh! :facepalm:
