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

Obviously the former (which I have isolated).

I would like to believe that, one way or another, Founders would be able to put Excalibur Prime cosmetics on Excalibur Umbra. If not, then for those Founders who lost Excalibur Prime for one reason or another, Umbra would be their salvation.

Real question is, now, how would we get Ballas' Sword?

Also they wont get rid of operators, because too much work went into them to just scrap them.

Spoiler

They can't get rid of Operators because they are the only means of direct Void damage as of now. The closest thing to 'removing' them is giving them a new Focus School to allow them to Transference into their Warframe directly, replacing the Warframe's head with their own - effectively canonizing the humanized Warframe concept and preserving their powers and means of direct Void damage, but Void Blast is swapped for melee. Of course this visually cannot work with some Warframes (like Chroma), but that can be worked around by making them visually unchanged. This could also be where the Channeling FX could live on.

Then they'll improvise, I suppose... As for Ballas? Maybe both? He could challenge us to a melee-only duel with no powers; a fair fight. If we win, we swap melee weapons and keep them. Would be funny to see Ballas try and use a Nikana Prime with that long arm of his.

Well I think that something will happen to Teshin, because for watching twitch partner streams we get golden teshin bust.

Teshin was just one of many Dax soldiers. They all wore the same armour and had the same weapons, so there is a possibility that the bust is in fact of another Dax entirely.

Maybe maybe not, its all speculation and beside the fact that some male character close to us will die(most likely by the hands of Ballas) we have little info.

Well, seeing as how Umbra is a separate frame altogether that's not going to be possible.

Either he gives it to us, or we take from him forcefully. I hope it's the former.

I guess you could say the "hype site" got updated.

https://www.warframe.com/thesacrifice/info

Looks like were getting Umbra cosmetics and more Operator cosmetics and the new UI changes. 

Was it revealed what type of item is the Dax bust is? Like is it an Operator cosmetic? or just a decorative orbiter piece?

How do you know that the person isn't already dead? After all, the original Umbra appearance was supposed to be during a flashback in TWW, during which Ballas was asking a "mystery Dax" just how far he'd go to protect/save someone.

Remember this quest is supposed to be exploring the Warframes origin and to do that, we need to look back in time. Everyone has always taken Ballas "all miracles require sacrifice" words to mean that we will have to sacrifice something in the future quest, but not a lot of people think about whether or not he's in fact referring to a past event that we don't know about yet.

It's an Orbiter decoration. It would very odd for an Operator to be carrying a huge bust around everywhere.

Hey, that Operator isn't using an amp. And, after a mite of testing, the regular void beam looks nothing like that weird bubble over the hand. I checked just to make sure that wasn't an effect that occurs before the void beam come out and it is not. New Operator powers confirmed?

Lets go back to the teaser, for one we see lua crumbling down and being destroyed and also this

If you could trade, would you? Surely. But all miracles, require sacrifice... for their life... ...yours.

Who is he talking about? maybe he is talking to the lotus and he (Person not specified)  is saying that with context with saving the tenno trading your life for ours? maybe he s talking to the margulis part of the lotus

Looks like the sakura tree has a special role in this quest, in the trailer the tree is dead and Umbra howls near it and when he is doing that, there's energy coming from his body, maybe he's trying to bring the tree back alive using that energy?

Didn't they say that they were creating a new system for getting umbras in a recent devstream? I'd have to go check but I remember it catching my interest.

Considering that Orokin habitats are full of roots and such, there could be some truth to that. Or that something dormant within the tree is what he seeks to enliven.
The Oro roots can transmit consciousness, so maybe they can retain it as well.

All i wish for is that we don't lose/kill Ballas, that voice is so damn epic, gives me the chills every time i hear it.

It will be dissapointing to see an anticipated Orokin to be killed in one quest. Major waste of resource and story potential.

Do you think we will have to grind for Umbra parts or just given to us after completion of story quest? 

If it is a grind, I hope its not like getting the prime through relics type of grind.
