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

Recommended Posts

The Operator's transference powers grow so strong, they can materialize their Warframe's sentience as an astral projections and thus we have the focus on the Warframes on the sacrifice. - speculation

So chaps, I’m not sure if this has been brought up, but what if Excalibur Edgelord requires baseline Excalibur blueprints to build?

 

I mention this possibility because these days, Excal is way more of a pain in the arse to acquire, due to how the Ambulas boss fight is accessed.

 

Come on now, you've been around these parts long enough to know this has been brought up repeatedly since day 1 this mess began. Come on now.

the thought of being able to turn warframes into spectar ai when we jump into our operator mode would be nice, adding in the new warrior /focus 2.0 factor its an interesting combat scenario , but as a added mechanic it wouldnt be a new one, just reuse of something like equinox duality, which is ..not great ai as it is

If I’ve brought it up before and then forgotten having done so, then clearly on some level I must be concerned about the prospect of it working that way!

I would like to bring up one piece of the new Focus System that could possibly reinforce this theory. NOTE: I am aware of what this already does.

Being a faithful Unairu student, (I actually use their principles in real life!) I have alot of the Focus Nodes in mind. One of them is towards the bottom of the tree I believe, and it boost Operator and Warframe health by 10% as the base. It can be upgraded. BUT!

If the Umbras will act of their own accord, this Focus ability would be pretty useful in some cases. Boosting the armor of Warframes like Nyx or Volt would be pretty useful with that base of 15 health. Or for something like Valkyr, it would only make her more durable. 

I am really hoping that the Warframes will act of their own accord when we are using Operator. It would kinda cool to have them roam the ship too. Maybe DE could install a chess program of sorts that we could use to play our Warframes. Different Warframes would have different levels of skill.

This made me think the sacrifice could be giving up physical the body to become more powerful making the operator a shadow projection (ghost like)and a shadow could be related to Umbra as its latin for shadow (if iam not mistaking).

Doubt DE is going to do anything related to giving up the operators for umbra, they have too much story potential, plus with the systems that have been made for them and all the cosmetics they wouldn't want to waste those efforts.

Quite so. And regardless of how much I want the frame, I would never give up access to an entire system and more customization for a single reskin.

So I want to point out again that the names of quests this far have been about things that have already happened in the past and every time we've heard Ballas speak it's been in the context of the past. That said I strongly believe that there sacrifice the quest refers to has already been made by others for our sake.

An addendum to that ^

I believe that 'The Sacrifice' is referring to the sacrifice made by the individuals that became the original warframes, of which I think all other warframes are cloned/re-grown copies.

^ agreed, it would put to much limitations on a user that choose such a path , which hurts the player experience but also limit players ability to benefit from certain aspects of the market and focus and ect

i think its dax soldiers that were injured offered a second chance to battle for the orokin, or maybe it was only done for certain individuals as we know ordis was to be made an exception in some regards as ordan before he tried or murdered some orokin then got locked up as a cephalon

That entire channel is mostly Excal Umbra related videos from the Chinese build. Informative, thanks for the link, but it's not anything anyone hasn't seen before.

It's going to be a pleasant day when we no longer have to refer to images and videos.

But it's in 2018, that's for sure, almost here.

I get the feeling that once the launcher finishes updating to “The Sacrifice” and you get straight to your Liset after logging in, I can hear that inbox transmission from the Lotus- “Tenno, I’m picking up some strange disturbance from the tower in Cetus. Go investigate.” And you reach the top of the tower and meet a disheveled Ballas, torn apart by millenia of kuva consumption, sitting in an unkempt golden throne, with Excalibur Umbra at his side, ready for command. 

I firmly believe that not only will The Sacrifice bring us our beloved Excalibur Umbra, but it will also be the reveal of Ballas, creator of the warframes. He has locked himself away in the tower forever, and brought with him a batch of warframes to protect him- warframes that can think without an operator...

I'm thinking that Ballas and the Unum tower will play a large role in the Umbra quest.

Ballas because, well, they did recently unveil concept art for him at TennoCon which at least entertains the possibility that he is still alive.

.latest?cb=20170713231925

And I think that Umbra will take place within the tower simply because the plains is DE's newest beauty and it'd be a wasted opportunity not to make more content take place there.

This picture of Ballas looks like a reflection of Umbra..down to the flowing scarf, gold accents and weapon on his hip.  Maybe it's his personal guard and you have to beat him down using some evolved tactic that only Ballas understands in order to be worthy of his blueprint.
