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

Recommended Posts

I wonder if May 20 can be considered "early May" 😄

No confirmation email about shipping status, no email about yet another delay. That's weird.

that wont ever happen

Not likely, but if adding a warframes, say 4th ability to your custom frame required sacrificing that warframe, it might be more plausible.

You'd have to at least own a frame to use one of it's abilities, and if they upgraded similarly to arcanes we'd have a reason to build frames multiple times. Might revitalize the market, who knows.

why do that when we can have stuff like equinox who has basically 7 powers?

This would turn all existing and future warframes into nothing more but a fodder for the custom warframe. Do you think the game needs it?

Indeed.

The only way I could see a custom frame system working is if the frame was, contrary to stuff like Kitguns or Zaws, substantially weaker. One way I could see it is using the 'pre-buff' versions of certain abilities or movesets. Like Limbo's OG banish, Excal's Super Jump. Plus it would be a neat way for newer players to experience older movesets.

That being said, even with all that, there's a strong chance it'd still be overpowered.

I think now that Umbra Forma exists, I dont think every warframe will receive the Umbra treatment because ANY warframe or weapon can now have access to the Umbra Polarity. 

Youd be wasting it on a none prime, but still anything now can become "Umbral"

I still think well get more Umbra frames. I just think its going to be the frames that first shipped with the game and possibly in the same release order as the Primes (Frost being #2).

To me this makes the most sense, as those frames deserve to recieve that treatment. But because of the Forma.....any Warframe can be an "Umbra" 

Im leading with that because I dont see DE giving us a "Custom Warframe" per say. But what they can do is tie the Umbra Formas and the Infested room together. 

Place an Umbral forma into X warframe, and take it to the chair. The chair is basically a mod table where you can change X stat on a warframe: Health, Armor, Energy etc. Each Warframe is now customizable to how you want it, this will have to be balanced, but its something that would be very interesting to have as each frames playstyle will change.

Thoughts?

well given de states more umbras are being discussed and how to deploy , we know more are coming.

 steve also wanted this series to become its own thing, which as ive said before it has become to that point now, given the popularity and diversity it brings, but then how many umbras or how we get them is still up in the air 

the role of the umbra in squad or combat in general is to natively use umbra mods as well as debuf sentient adaption to help fellow squad members utilize offensive strategies against them

given that sentient and sentient based coprus units are coming the role of 1 or 2 umbras per squad is going to be a useful strategy

I don't so much care about having other Umbra frames, especially since we have Umbral Forma, what I'm interested in is having the Umbra passive available on any frame I use.

The custom warframe could be a suitable alternative to this, as it could already have that passive, and I don't think it would invalidate the other frames any more than a Prime or Umbra would, because you would have to craft and then rank up to level 30 before a frame could be 'consumed' to strip just one of it's powers to the custom frame. The power would then be base level and would have to be leveled indepedently of the frame, like operators. Mods could still be used, but abilities would not be based on mastery rank so in order to raise the level you would have to consume another warframe and apply it to one of the four power slots. The slot you applied a frame to would determine which of that frame's powers were added. Applying a duplicate frame to a slot would increase its power level similarly to how arcanes work, while applying a different warframe to the same slot would change that ability to the consumed warframe's ability.

To start, this custom warframe would have no powers, or maybe only the first power of the frame sacrificed to build it, but with the 'Spectre mode' passive and a built in focus lense - because I'm letting my mind run wild with this concept and I see it as the operator essentially becoming a warframe themselves in physical form while still retaining their void form.

Just an idea, and I'm sure it could be balanced at least as well as anything else in this game. It would also solve the Umbra conundrum as well as giving a use to the infested room and tying together the Ballas, Lotus, and Alad V arcs as the operator ascends to their 'ultimate form'.

isnt the point of umbra passive for the umrba frames the reason youd want the umbra frame for the sentience ?

honestly i think sentience should be an unlockable and then a toggle on off

Sounds nice. The first thing I'd do would be turning Umbra's shields into HP.

Statue ship date for batch #2 is closing in, yet no statues from batch #1 have been shipped.

Update: statues

at this time my personal statue of batch 1 has not yet arrived, and if no one else has received, I can only at this time then assume they did not make the MAY release

batch 1 may then ship in summer, which will push batch 2 to later (just a guess) 

please keep an eye on your emails to see if DE or the makers release any more info 

One can only assume another email on altered shipping dates may occur or another delay apology

personally im ok so long as they get the details right and make it a quality product

Just wanted to pop in here and give my support. 

I like the idea of having more Umbras like Excalibur... Right now his my favorite main Warframe. The fact that he fights besides your operator feel really cool!

I have a hunch that Nyx or/and Valkery would probably be next, but I also like to see Chroma or Garuda too... thought it might be to unlikely seeing as Garuda is kinda new and Chroma is more resent than other older more popular Warframes like Ash, Rhino or Loki.

Ooooo Chroma Umbra the Dragon of the Void....it gives me goosebumps! With his elemental mastery and almost Sentient (Faction) ability to adapt (do to his ability to change elements), beside fighting beside you, he can also deploy an effigy!? He be a sight to behold in teams, he be a Plus Ultra!   😆

Can wait to see who gets Umbra next and what is their story!

Ok, we have a proof that Umbra statues exist 😄

 

Still, shipment process is handled in a weird way. Despite being in the same batch, some people already get the statues, others don't even receive the emails.

Same. I've never understood the hype over Umbra...

idk a sentient warframe when you're not controlling it is pretty cool.

STATUES UPDATE
 

1st 500 seem to be shipping and are being received 

So if you are in batch 1-500 set 1 keep an eye out for your package 

BTW people if you haven't received a confirmation email about your order yet try contacting their support. Today I've got a reply from them about my order status and found out that my statue has been actually shipped on June 7th. Vitruvian shirts are not ready yet, they will be shipped separately.
