Umbra warframes [Discussion & Appreciation][*spoilers*]


Recommended Posts

Completely my opinion and theoretical

What if Excalibur umbra isn't just a prime version. What if it's a completely different frame. Like what if it was an experimental frame that was being worked on by the orokin but it was never used and got locked up or something. That would explain the prime look. It's basically like the orokin were doing a rework of the Excalibur and the results of that work were never seen. It's completely theoretical though.

In my own head canon, Umbra Frames were those responsible for the murder of the Orokin on that fateful day. This is hinted at when the Stalker seems surprised and hesitates upon seeing the Tenno separated from a Warframe. He bore witness to the slaughter, but apparently was not aware of what Operators were, so it could be that what he and the other Low Guardians saw were rogue Warframes rebelling against their creators, and not the Tenno.

Why would they do such a thing? The reasons are copious. For one, it's no secret that the Orokin were heavily corrupt, decadent, and dangerous even unto themselves. Perhaps a certain subset of Frames, those without an Operator, capable of enacting their own will sensed (Or even uncovered) the betrayal of the Orokin to dispose of their weapons (Tenno, Frames) and struck first. It could be possible that Umbras played a major role in the downfall of the Empire.

Check out Umbra megathread, not only you will find this theory mentioned dozens of times, but also many other interesting speculations.

Edit: you won't even have to search for it, your topic is already merged into it.

And maybe Exalted Blade might have different modes such as Dual, Heavy, Rapier style, Throwable Exalted Blade which one could switch through.

Actually, it'd be nice to have a separate equipment slot for EB where you could install the mods directly for it, without touching melee weapon. And it could have a switch between different weapon types you've mentioned.

Not any word about umbra in the last devstream?

No, they said nothing about Umbra is going to be revealed on a devstream. They said for that you gotta play the quest.

Nope. And Steve said they will not say or reveal anything related to Umbra in stream. It will be the "play the quest and find out".

I hope the story is so deliciously lore, perception, and gameplay altering that half of us swoon as if drunk-in-love and the other half act like they just had alcohol poured into their eyes while fingernails were dragging on a chalkboard, lol.

”What do you mean MY OPERATOR HAS AN OPERATOR???!” 😱

At least we know its getting closer.. I thought the new gold and black Hud they showed had something related with umbra, I was wrong but.. I loved it so much, that will be my main theme when it releases.

well they said we will have to play the quest to find stuff out when it drops

What do you guys think the Sacrifice is gonna be? A lot of people believe its gonna be the Excalibur Warframe or maybe the Operator or something.

check the FAQs on the first page, but sure thing it's related to Excalibur umbra since we have been waiting 3 years (4/?~ years for us  who have been following umbra since it's release on China warframe)

Think they're asking about what this "sacrifice" is referring to.

I think it’s our Innocence and Matriarch Margulis and our memories of her are what was holding the entire system together.

Now that Ballas has taken her, Natah is going to re-awaken to destroy every living thing in the solar system.

 Ballas is going to reveal that we may have the faces of babes, but we were ALWAYS relentless murder machines that revel in our power.

Ballas will SHOW you what you’ve done.  

Your mother’s comforting bedtime stories are gone.

Time to grow up, face the truth, and make your choice, Tenno.  You were always cold-blooded mass-murderers.

The theory just came to me. I've never really read any other speculations

Yeah, I figured. That's why I suggested reading them, you might find something interesting.

Umbra was released in Chinaframe in July 2015, so we are getting close to 3 years of waiting.

I really want the Operators to grow up, act like the adults they are (they have the bodies of teenagers, but they've been essentially living as adults for most of their lifetime), and finally leave the Lotus or at least have the option to. That's the final choice I want, where we can choose who we serve.
