XB1 Beasts of the Sanctuary: Update 22.18.8 (LIVE!)


Recommended Posts

XB1 Beasts of the Sanctuary: Update 22.18.8 has passed Cert is is going live TODAY at ~11AM ET. Operation Plague Star will start today at 2PM ET until May 22nd.


XB1 Beasts of the Sanctuary: Update 22.18.8 has been sent to cert!


XB1 Tenno, are you ready for the Sanctuary? Cephalon Simaris awaits your arrival in his domain. This build includes everything from Hotfix 22.17.2 up to 22.18.8 along with some handpicked goods. 

Once we’ve passed cert, we will be updating this thread with the official release date! 

While you wait, take a gander at what this update has to offer:


Tenno and beast, red in whip and claw. Khora and her Kavat companion, Venari, embody lethal versatility. Two bodies, one will.


*The ability descriptions below reflect the changes that were introduced to Khora in the PC 22.18.8 Hotfix that will also be included in the Beasts of the Sanctuary Update on console.

PASSIVE: The ferocious kavat, Venari, fights by Khora's side and provides her with a speed boost while active. If killed, Venari will reappear after a short time. 

WHIPCLAW: Send enemies reeling with a deafening whipcrack.

ENSNARE: Bind a hapless target in living metal, entangling others who stray too close. Whipclaw will refresh the trap allowing it to capture more enemies.

VENARI: Command Venari to focus on a target. Hold to cycle between Attack, Protect, and Heal postures. If Venari is killed, use this ability to revive her instantly.

STRANGLEDOME: Weave a dome of living chain that ensnares and strangles any enemy within, and any foolish enough to approach. Foes outside the trap will try to hasten their comrade's deaths by shooting them. Crack Whipclaw on the dome to further damage any trapped enemies.


A uniquely styled Alternate Helmet for Khora.

Flowing lines meet sharpened spikes in Khora’s signature Syandana.

Launch a flurry of metallic quills with Khora’s signature sidearm. Use alternate fire to change its elemental damage type on the fly.

Tear through any target with these vicious, claw-like blades. The signature swords of Khora.

Precise calibration, rapid trigger-pull and a steady hand all combine to bring down the hardiest prey on two legs or four.

Sepfahn: A balanced Zaw Strike for Nikana and Staff weapons. A steady blade for steady hands. 
Rabvee: A heavy Zaw Strike for Machete and Hammer weapons. Measure twice, strike once... heavily. 
Dokrahm: A light Zaw Strike for Scythe or Heavy Blade weapons. Lightweight, for flash and bite. 
Shtung: A two-handed Zaw Grip for measured strikes and greater impact. 
Korb: A one-handed Zaw Grip for measured strikes and greater impact.

Operation: Plague Star is returning for a second time! Get your best boil popping loadout and head out into the Plains of the Eidolon to go face to face with the Hemocyte. 

Plague Star will begin the day after Beasts of the Sanctuary: Update goes live, and will be active for 12 days. 

If you participated in the last occurence of Plague Star, your Operational Supply Standing will still be intact. What exactly does this mean? Any Standing you had left over will be available to use at Nakak in Cetus’ Operational Supply when the Operation goes live.  

You will also be able to use your Hemocyte Cystolith to build Operation trophies for your Dojo! As before, the required Cystolith costs will depend on the size of your Clan.

We will be posting a detailed thread on what you need to do, what you need to know, and more! If you’d like to get a head start and prepare for the Operation now, head on over to our PC Operation: Plague Star thread.

    which PC build are we getting ? a more recent one with all the fixes to khora and Onslaught or the original onslaught update build ? @[DE]Danielle

    This will have all the recent changes to Khora and the Onslaught mode. Things not included will be stuff from 22.19.0 and Hotfix 22.19.1, which is mainly TennoGen Round 12 and the new Grineer Sealab tileset for Defense missions on Uranus. Hope this helps.

    I been waiting for this since the release on PC, but why with plague star at the same time, for me is going to be like the launch of onslaught is going to be in 12 days because I want to farm those hemocytes. 

    It's just to get Xbox and PS4 as up to date as possible, I agree that it's a lot at once to come out. But it Khora will all ways be there when Plague star is over. 🙂

    I remember there being all this hype for our S&M Crazy Cat Lady, and then she received the most disappointing pre-release revisionings to hit Warframe since the War Within went public. So... When does Strangledome not become the most impractical CC ability in the game? Excluding Titania's Lantern from the comparison of course, cause that ain't CC, that's just fail.

    Can we get an Atlas style revisit for Khora? Cause the last rework didn't fix her most fundamental issues. Also, #feelsbad for new players who want to min/max Khora. Not only will Khora/Mecha-Kitty suck up their valuable Formas, but after crunching the numbers on endo investments...

    ...Running this kitty is gonna be bloody expensive, coming in at over 100,000 Endo (plus a Bite mod; OUCH). That's a 100,000 Endo investment to get the cattiest dominatrix possible. I mean, we vets can afford that kind of resource expenditure, but this frame REALLY feels gated to our community's newer players.

    This is not a cheap frame to min/max; and given what you get for that kind of investment...

    ...Well, needless to say, until Strangledome's hindering ragdoll gets scrapped, your investment amounts to a disappointing market flop.
