[DE]Megan Posted October 12, 2017 Share Posted October 12, 2017 Warframe Update 22: Plains of Eidolon The highly anticipated Plains of Eidolon update is here! Our biggest update, ever, Plains of Eidolon has finally arrived! First off, thank you for checking it out! If you're new to Warframe - oh hi! You’ve arrived at an interesting time in our multi-year journey. We hope you’ll stay a while and join our little space-ninja community. Cetus and its open landscape, Plains of Eidolon, have been placed early on in the progression path on Earth so that you can experience them as soon as possible! If you’re a Founder - a Veteran - a Prime Access supporter - please know that it is by your hand that this crazy update is even possible. This update is dedicated to you. Plains of Eidolon, with its expansive landscape and all-new dynamic game systems, represents the ongoing evolution of Warframe. Our continuing mission: to create a game that feels alive, that challenges its creators and its players alike. A game that lives up to the amazing community that has grown around it. Happy Fishing, Tenno! LOVE,THE WARFRAME TEAM Some quick facts you might want to know about how Cetus & the Plains of Eidolon work! The Plains of Eidolon and Cetus operate on a persistent asymmetrical Day/Night Cycle. As the sun rises and sets, different gameplay systems become available! The details are: The 'Day' cycle lasts 100 minutes. The 'Night' cycle lasts 50 minutes. The full cycle is 150 minutes (Day + Night). You can get BOUNTIES from Konzu in Cetus - these are missions that increase your standing and earn you rewards. You can do this DAY or NIGHT! INCURSIONS are random events that will occur in the Plains if you haven't selected a Bounty before you depart. These only happen in the DAY! At NIGHT you can engage in the TERALYST HUNT. Ostron Vendors are accessible in Cetus at any time! These Update notes have close to 25 pages of information explaining the Update. The Plains of Eidolon is new for all Tenno - take your time and enjoy discovering how to make your way through the systems. To have these Update notes be as clear as they can, we will categorize the main additions in two main categories: CETUS & THE QUILLS & THE OSTRONS - the Colony and the Colonists. & THE PLAINS OF EIDOLON - the Open Landscape. CETUS & THE OSTRONS! A tight knit band of merchants, hucksters, and survivors, the Ostrons call Cetus their home. The town was built around an Orokin Tower that both protects and nourishes them. Gold for blood. Blood for gold. Cetus requires you to earn Standing to unlock rewards from its people. The Daily Standing Cap for Cetus works identically to all other Syndicates, and can be viewed under your Profile! As you venture through Cetus, you will encounter many unique townspeople. Pay close attention to their barks and replies, for each encounter can tell a different story: Fishing tackle, bait, and mounting - Fisher Hai-Luk Fishing! Feed yourself and the ones you love! Spears, bait, and a lifetime of knowledge! Fisher Hai-Luk, at your service! Mining - Old Man Suumbaat Let Old Man Suumbaat help you draw wealth from the Plains! All your mining needs catered to right here! Masks and Oddities - Nakak Knickknacks and oddities! FOSFORs can also be purchased from Nakak! Fosfors do more than just signal your position - blast these flares into the sky (when equipped in your Gear wheel) for a significantly increased Affinity Range while active! Animals - Master Teasonai Unique Kubrow & Kavat Gene Masking Kits and Orbiter decorations! A hunter should take pride in their animal. Bounty Giver - Konzu Handy with gun or blade? Cetus needs you. Zaw Weapon Assembly (Modular Weapons) - Hok's Anvil You have long dreamed of your perfect blade! Dream no longer, at master craftsman Hok's anvil your dreams will become reality. Stoke your fires of creativity! Hok offers a variety of services and is your gateway to modular Melee weapons called 'Zaws'. Through Cetus you can acquire components to forge your very own Zaw! Be sure to view Hok's Other Services to find out how to make your Zaw (and other Melee weapons) your own! Exodia are a new series of enhancements used on Zaws - they work similarly to Arcanes and are technology accessible from the Ostron people. You can install an Exodia on your Zaw in your Foundry in the 'Arcanes' section. CETUS: Cetus itself has Standing you can earn to increase your favor with the Ostron people. There are 5 ranks possible on Cetus:1: Offworlder2: Visitor3: Trusted4: Surah5: Kin THE QUILLS: Eidolon Hunter & Focus 2.0 A mysterious group you can engage with and earn Standing for if you've finished The War Within! You can earn to earn favor with the Quills (separate from Cetus Standing/limit). There are 5 ranks possible:1: Mote2: Observer3: Adherent4: Instrument5: Architect PLAINS OF EIDOLON The Plains of Eidolon is an ancient battlefield where Sentients fought to destroy the Orokin Tower that the Ostrons now call home. The Sentients failed and died, leaving behind an ancient graveyard throughout the Landscape. The towering Spectral Sentients known as Eidolons survived the Old War. Every night they ascend from the waters and wander the Plains in search of what they’ve lost. Small, deadly Sentients appear throughout the Plains and protect the Eidolon. At daybreak, they disappear and wait for night to emerge once more. The Grineer have organized drilling stations and sprawling outposts throughout the Plains to excavate the technology of the Old War. Fight Grineer during the day and clear out their bases, but be fast as these Grineer will call reinforcements when they spot danger. As you venture deeper into the Plains, there will be tougher Grineer enemies so come prepared. When night falls, some Grineer will retreat to their camps and attempt to wait it out while reinforcing their outposts and repairing their equipment for the new day. Saving your Progress on the Plains happens in a number of ways - most of which are automatic! 1) If you return to Cetus through the gates at any point, your mission concludes and all progress is saved.2) If you return to your Landing Craft via the escape menu. 3) All progress is automatically saved on completing Bounties or Incursions.4) Fishing, Mining, or using consumables results in a specific save of that content (fish caught, minerals extracted, consumables used). Here’s what the Plains of Eidolon have to offer: Spearfishing! Experience the great outdoors as you fish in the rivers and streams. Catch a variety of fish species throughout the Plains and bring them back to Cetus. Expect to find: Mawfish Yogwun Charc Eeel Tralok Mortus Lungfish Sharrac Murkray Norg Cuthol Glappid Khut-Khut Karkina Goopolla The fish of the plains are prized by the Ostrons because they can feed but also provide resources to the people. Visit Fisher Hai-Luk in Cetus to purchase a fishing spear for Standing and Resources found in the Plains of Eidolon. There are 3 reusable fishing spear blueprints available for purchase, each specializing in catching specific types of fish: Lanzo - The barbed prongs on this fishing spear make it easier to catch fish with smooth skin. Tulok - This fishing spear features a slender blade to puncture armored plates and carapaces. Peram - This fishing spear has multiple blades that allow it to pierce the hides of scaly fish. Hai-Luk also offers Gear to aid in your fishing efforts, and 4 kinds of Bait Blueprints that may be crafted using components from filleted fish and Resources collected in the Plains. How to spearfish: Before heading out into the Plains, add your spear of choice to your Gear wheel in your Arsenal. Find a body of water, open your Gear wheel (or use your hotkey), and select your spear to enter fishing mode. Aiming and shooting with the spear works just as it does when launching other spear weapons. Aim at an unknowing fish and toss your spear for a chance to reel in your catch! Use your equipped Bait by pressing the Alt Fire button. Mining! By visiting Old Man Suumbaat in Cetus, you can acquire a Cutter to carve resources straight from the rocks of the Plains. Three different reusable Cutter blueprints can be purchased for Standing: Nosam Cutter - a standard tool for cutting ore and gems out of stone. Focused Nosam Cutter - a more accurate variation of the Nosam Cutter. Advanced Nosam Cutter - enhanced with cybernetics, this tool is able to locate nearby gems and ore veins and has a chance to retrieve Eidolon Gems. Once you have acquired your blueprint and crafted your Cutter, enter the Plains. The ancient battle has left traces of energy on those Plains, and this affects the Landscape, including the very rock formations! As a result, you will be able to mine interesting and strange mineral deposits with interesting and strange rewards. ‘Arcane Gems’ will be available from this system. Once you find a deposit, and have your mining laser, simply trace the pattern on the rock to successfully extract your reward! Gems: Tear Asurite Marquise Veridos Star Crimzian Radian Sentrium Heart Nyth Ores: Auroxium Alloy Fersteel Alloy Coprite Alloy Pyrotic Alloy Sky Archwing! Summon your Archwing at will to fly through the open landscape, spot and battle Grineer enemies from the sky, and experience the beautiful scenery. Movement has been reworked to make it easy to fly through the Plains and engage enemies on the ground. Please note this Sky Archwing version is separately balanced in terms of powers and speed. How to enable Sky Archwing: Acquire the Sky Archwing Enabler Segment available in the Market or in the Tenno Research Lab in the Dojo! Craft and Equip Charges of the Enabler! Enter the Plains of Eidolon! Call your Sky Archwing down using the Gear Menu! Incursions! When you're out on the Plains of Eidolon at your leisure - the Lotus will prompt you to opt into 'INCURSIONS'. These are randomly generated missions. Bounties! Konzu will present you with a list of Bounties in Cetus. There are 5 Tiers of Bounties determined by enemy level and Reward pools! These Bounties rotate cyclically. New Mod Sets!

On the brink of a discovery, he stashed away his research in crates hidden throughout the Plains. His best friend Konzu is worried that his mourning widow, Saya will do something rash. Visit Konzu in Cetus to learn more about Onkko and his research. Please note this is a beginner friendly quest - and it's balanced accordingly. Veteran Tenno will have no problem completing it or helping new players complete it (maybe with advice since it's Solo). If you're a veteran, enjoy the story as you breeze your way through!

Virtuos are used to enhance your Operator Amps. Exodia are used to enhance your Zaw (Modular Melee) Visit Ostron Merchants to learn more about these new Upgrades! Focus 2.0. Focus means Spoilers - read no further if you haven't completed The Second Dream! It's been almost two years since we released the first version of Focus. Focus comes as a system unlocked upon completion of 'The Second Dream'. After answering a series of questions from The Lotus, you (the Operator) chose a Focus school and began your journey through a series of Passives that you needed to unlock all the while earning the Focus points to do so. Then came The War Within, where your Operator became playable with a few abilities meant mainly to help you earn Kuva and participate in Quests. The core purpose of this rework is to shift the goals of the Focus system away from supplementing Warframes and towards making your Operator more combat-ready. This means that there will be more of a balance between Passives and Actives under Focus 2.0. Let's start with some very important facts about all your accrued Focus Points and installed Lenses: All installed Lenses have been removed and returned to your inventory. You should give yourself time to study the new system before you reinstall them. All spent Focus Points have been returned so you can respec your skill trees. There are Focus Lenses (1.25% Affinity Conversion), Greater Focus Lenses (1.75% Affinity Conversion), and now (name not final) Eidolon/Ostron Lenses (2.25% Affinity Conversion) Blueprints for this last category—requiring multiple Greater Lenses to craft—will be awarded through the Plains of Eidolon Bounty System. The Daily Focus Cap has increased from 100,000 to 250,000 Focus per day. Convergence Orbs now yield an 8x multiplier versus a 6x. Now we shall talk Passives, Residuals, and Actives. Actives in their current form on the public build are at the behest of a 100 HP pool for the Operator. The Active and Passive Focus paths in Focus 2.0 aim to increase your Operator’s survivability and to give you the option to approach combat with added Operator support and armaments. Only a few encounters will necessitate this and as the game and feedback grows we will develop accordingly. As far as the Focus Schools themselves, we have clear cut the trees of the old system and are rebuilding entirely new ability paths. We are also including cross-Focus nodes you can unlock within different trees! Many benefits of the new Focus trees are linked to the activation of the Operator or Operator Abilities (Void Dash, Void Blast, Void Mode). We have reduced the Pool Increase costs significantly and distributed the Focus point investment more into the nodes. Naramon:Naramon has 10 Nodes for you to explore!Affinity Spike: Kills from melee attacks grant increased Affinity!Power Spike: Melee Combo Counter will now decay over time. Mind Step: Increase the movement speed of your Operator! Mind Sprint: Increase the speed of Void Dash! Disorienting Blast: Void Blast has a chance to confuse enemies.Disarming Blast: enemies hit by Void Blast have a 10% chance to be disarmed.Executing Dash: Void Dash no longer displaces enemies, instead it will open them up to finishers and increase finisher damage. Surging Dash: Creates a wave while dashing, increasing the damage in the area around the operator. Void Stalker: Void Mode increases the Critical Chance of melee attacks, and the chance gradually decreases when the Operator leaves Void Mode. Void Hunter: Void Mode reveals enemies through walls, and this gradually decreases when the Operator leaves Void Mode. Zenurik: Zenurik has 10 Nodes for you to explore!Energy Pulse: Energy pickups grant additional energy over time!Void Static: Void Mode emits a pulse that deals damage per second over a certain distance and costs additional energy.Void Singularity: Void Mode pulls enemies within range toward the Operator, and costs additional energy per second.

Mending Soul: Generates instantaneous revives!Void Regen: Void Mode heals your Operator at the cost of energy. Void Aegis: Void Mode creates a growing shield at the cost of energy. Cross-Focus Unlocks: Way-Bounds For players who delve deep into their Focus trees, two passive nodes from each tree can be made “universal” once maxed! These are denoted by 'Way Bound' terminology. For a substantial Focus cost and other items, these passives become available regardless of the school you are using. One can only truly “complete” a Focus tree by exploring all 5 of the Tenno ways! But there is also NEW - all the above examples don't include the Weaponry and Arcane-like Enhancements your Operators are getting when they become true 'Eidolon Hunters'. Operator AMPS: Operator Weapons! Tenno who seek out the Eidolon Hunter will be exposed to an Operator Weaponry system. Operators will be able to wield a new Modular weaponized system that attaches to their arm, called an AMP. These devices amplify the Operator's Void Beam and Void Blast attacks and channeling them in different ways. They are comprised of three components: the Brace, the Scaffold, and the Prism. You can equip and customize your AMP in the Customize Operator menu aboard your Orbiter. Operators & Enhancements: VIRTUOS and MAGUS! Operator Cosmetic Upgrades: 3 New Armor sets are here for your Operators! These Ostron fashioned Operator suits can be acquired by visiting The Quills in Cetus or the Market! Operators can now equip their very own set of Arcane-like enhancements called MAGUS. *Please note that Magus can only be installed on all Operator Suits but the Zariman Suit. We’re working on fixing that in a near Hotfix. Operator AMPS can be enhanced with VIRTUOUS. Operator Mode Changes: There are two energy sources for your Operator: 1 for Void Beam, and another for Void Dash, Void Mode, and Void Blast. Both energy sources regen over time, and energy pickups only affect the latter abilities. To create more flow with Transference between Operator and Warframe, you can now seamlessly transition to your Operator and back to your Warframe at any time - even when in mid bullet jump! You can now double tap “shift” to perform a slide as the Operator. When in Operator mode, Warframes now have a 90% damage reduction from enemies if an ability is active during Transference. If no ability is active during Transference, you Warframe is invulnerable and untargetable. Time Limited: Twitch Drops Campaign!

Prettied up materials for several doors in different tilesets. Added a Screen-Shake toggle option! Added two new alternate versions of the default Liset load screens! You can now control if you want to accept gifts from All, Friends Only, or None in the Options Menu! Weapon Fall-Off Damage Changes: One of Warframe’s biggest appeals is the diverse selection of weaponry. Even within the subclasses of rifles and pistols, there is huge variety to be found, such as the distinction between projectile weapons (firing physical projectiles which move through space, like the Boltor) and hitscan weapons (firing draws an imaginary line between the gun and the point aimed at, doing damage instantly to whatever it hits, like the Soma). For obvious reasons, hitscans are very effective at long distances - this has never been an issue with Warframe’s tileset-based gameplay, but as we shot enemies from a kilometer away in the plains with our pistols, we knew something had to be done. With the release of Plains of Eidolon, most weapons will have a form of damage falloff added, to reduce their effectiveness at extremely long distances. But don’t panic! This damage falloff will only be noticeable at extreme ranges (greater than 300m). Across all of our current tilesets, we were unable to find an unobstructed line of sight longer than 300m, so that is the point at which damage falloff will start. Based on our assessment of all existing procedural tiles we’re extra confident that our current tileset-based gameplay will be largely unaffected. It is also worth noting that snipers will be able to fire 600m without experiencing falloff, to give them more of a purpose in this wide open terrain where long range weapons should thrive. Sniper Rifle Changes: General Sniper Changes: Reticle sway removed from all zoom levels! 1 meter punch through added to all snipers without any to start with (snipers with innate punch through unchanged). 1 combo count removed at a time when duration runs out instead of all of them (decay vs. cooldown). 1 combo count removed on miss instead of all of them Additional bullets from multishot will each count as their own hits and misses in the combo counter Combo duration reduced to 2 seconds for all snipers apart from Lanka which is reduced to 6 Damage fall off begins at 400 meters and ends at 600 meters with damage reduced to 50% past 600 meters. Specific Sniper Weapon Changes: Vectis First level zoom +10% Damage replaced with +30% Head Shot Damage Second level zoom 15% Damage replaced with +50% Head Shot Damage Vectis Prime Fire rate increased from 1.5 to 2.67 First level zoom +15% Damage replaced with +35% Head Shot Damage First level zoom reduced from 4x to 3.5x Second level zoom 20% Damage replaced with +55% Head Shot Damage Second level zoom reduced from 10x to 6x Next round is chambered immediately after firing instead of waiting for fire rate to cycle Snipetron Fire rate increased from 1.5 to 2 First level zoom +10% Damage replaced with +30% Head Shot Damage Second level zoom 15% Damage replaced with +50% Head Shot Damage Snipetron Vandal Fire rate increased from 1.5 to 2 First level zoom +10% Damage replaced with +30% Head Shot Damage Second level zoom 15% Damage replaced with +50% Head Shot Damage Rubico Fire rate increased from 1.5 to 2.67 First level zoom reduced from 5x to 3.5x Second level zoom reduced from 12x to 6x Vulkar First level zoom +15% Damage replaced with +35% Head Shot Damage Second level zoom 15% Damage replaced with +55% Head Shot Damage Second level zoom reduced from 6x to 4x Third level zoom 20% Damage replaced with +70% Head Shot Damage Third level zoom reduced from 12x to 8x Vulkar Wraith Fire rate increased from 1.5 to 2 First level zoom +15% Damage replaced with +35% Head Shot Damage Second level zoom 15% Damage replaced with +55% Head Shot Damage Second level zoom reduced from 6x to 4x Third level zoom 20% Damage replaced with +70% Head Shot Damage Third level zoom reduced from 12x to 8x Lanka Charge rate decreased from 1.5 to 1 Second level zoom reduced from 7x to 5x Third level zoom reduced from 12x to 8x Vasto Prime Vasto Prime Mastery Rank increased from 0 to 3. Vasto Prime damage increased from 60 to 70. Vasto Prime status chance increased from 15 to 20%. Vasto Prime critical chance increased from 15 to 20%. Changes All trace fire weapons trace distance reduced to 300m apart from Sniper Rifles which stay at 1000m. Magnetic Damage Status Effects now drain energy over time as opposed to completely draining all energy. Changed Ayatan Star markers to only display if you're within 100 meters or so range of the drop.. Amber Star markers will also appear larger due to their rarity and to avoid confusion. Maroo's Bazaar is now located on Mars. Adjusted the Nyx Carnifex Helmet and Skin colors to match original design. Toned down the density of the Zenistars FX. Removed stagger on hit from Grineer Flameblade units. Capture missions will no longer have the chance to change to the Exterminate objective in Kuva Siphon missions. Improved the mesh quality of the Angstrum and Prisma Angstrum to avoid blocky textures. Companions will no longer lose integrity if a print is in the process of being distilled to prevent unexpected death.

Anti-MOAs are now able to spawn in Exterminate and Mobile Defense missions on Jupiter. Tweaked the glass material on the Orokin capsules in the first mission of Vor’s Prize. Updated Quaro Sugatra’s material rigidness to make it perform more like metal. Updated the Liset’s appearance in the cinematic during the first mission of Vor’s Prize.
