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

Recommended Posts

I check this megathread every couple of months, and each time people's expectations get more and more crazy.

It's not even funny anymore.

Next time I visit it will probably be along the lines of "I hope The Sacrifice will include 60 hours fully voiced story campaign and an Umbra of every frame and they all will have unique sets of abilities and their own quest lines and [DE]Steve will come to my birthday party which is next week btw and will gift me a Lamborghini and congratulate me and say that they waited for my birthday to release Umbra and they will let me to press the button to install the update on life servers and then we will jump into a spacerocket and fly around the moon and make selfies in space! I think that will be so cool!".

The overhype around this update shocks me. I'm scared of the backlash towards DE when 99% of overblown expectations will not be delivered on and the Update will consist of just an alternative Excal P, a decent quest and couple new weapons.

Expect mediocracy and avoid disappointment. The way you should look at Warframe.

Since has been 2.5 years claiming that they are working on bringing us Umbra, but with it being delayed by anything else, i'm honestly not surprised to see people's expectation get ridiculously high and expect "at least" more umbras to be released with exvalibur once the quest finally makes into our build. 

At this point i just want this wait to end and wouldn't mind if umbra was an event reward or hidden behind a paywall

I feel like the more it's delayed , the bigger the disapointment  and riots will be when everyone doesn't  get what they want. I mean everyone's going nuts about it but in the end if your lucky  will all get it 2018.  We don't even know if will get weapons for him, what will need for him etc.  For all we know umbras can be Mr locked and noobs can't play them. Everyone just needs to wait and see. Just keep your expectations  low cause I can promise that's it's not gonna be as amazing as everyone things.

My main question is will they give all frames who don't have Primes Umbra frames or will the frames who aren't getting Prime variants be getting Umbras? 

And what be the distinguishing factor between Primes and Umbras?

All frames will get primes over time. However from what I heard not all frames may get Umbras.

Edit: At this point we also don't know what the exact difference between a prime and umbra will be.

I know if they took out prime access packs DE would lose a lot of the money they gain from Warframe so they won't do that but still I am curious about how they will work Umbras and Primes into the game and if any Warframes who have primes will also get Umbras because that is a lot of work for the Devs and they have to make Umbras worthwhile.

All frame's are getting prime variations, umbra is presented like a limited line in which not every frame will get an variation.As for wether Umbra will be better than Prime is unknown.Could be a sidegrade.

Devs have said that the Umbras are similar to a "distorted and twisted" version of a frame. As such I imagine they'll have some interesting function that even primes won't have. 

Excalibur Umbra will be introduced in the "Sacrifice" quest so we'll see if they introduce a system there.

I sure hope so. Needs me that Blaxcalibur prime.

That is why Excalibur gets the first Umbra because his prime is a Dev only frame if I am correct.

Also in what pattern if any will they release Umbras(Primes are usually released Male, Male, Female, Female if I'm correct)

Excal prime is founder only. Not dev.

They haven't released any sort of schedule. We don't even know which frames are eligible.

Also Excalibur also gets it first because he is the poster boy.

Excal P is Founders-only. DEvs I believe don't even have access to that unless they use their DEv powers.

Excal gets his first because his is the first one thats visually ready, as for function, though... That may be what's causing them the extra few months of DElay.

Personally I believe we turn in our ordinary Excalibur for the Umbra version either at the middle or end of the Quest, but that's just my theory.

Upd8 1: Theory about Umbra functionality.

Spoiler

As for what makes Umbras different, I'd personally guess that they either act on their own when you're out of them, or you can't get out of them unless you swap frames (meaning 'Tenno Mode' only swaps the powers for Tenno abilities).

Upd8 with a bit of theory.

Nah, thats a terrible plan really. That would force everyone wanting to do the quest to actually build/buy him. That's a lot of needless time spent for those who don't have him.

The Umbras version are more going to be a sidegrade to the Prime version like the Dex Sybaris and the Prime Sybaris

I doubt it'll be anything different from Umbra given to Chinaframe years ago.

Which was only a new Excalibro skin with 6000 new mastery xp to earn.

Although I'm...open...to being surprised, DE.

I never thought of it like that. That is a good possibility.

They've been talking about bringing Excalibur Umbra to global Warframe since... early 2016 or so?  Is there any particular news that I missed that makes you think it's coming soon?

 

*Edit* I missed stuff...
