5 Reasons Why I Don’t Think We Should Have More Open Worlds in Warframe

Last week’s Nightwave task included doing 5 different bounties in the Orb Vallis. At minimum, this meant doing the 5 bounties Eudico offers, although the Profit Taker heists also count. While the bounties aren’t particularly hard, they are… incredibly boring and simple. I somewhat mindlessly worked my way through the Nightwave task and then just moved on. Despite being a cool place to visit, I had little reason to stick around. And in all honesty, the same applies to the Plains of Eidolon. While these two areas are cool, I really don’t think we need any more. We’ll probably end… [Continue Reading]

I Still Hate K-Drives

I’m reaching that point in the Mastery climb that I’m running out of things to level up. And last on my list, aside from Kuva weapons, are K-Drives. All four of them. I hate them all so much. The grind for K-Drive affinity is almost as bad as the massive grind for Railjack affinity. But why do I hate K-Drive so much? There’s tons of reasons. And it’s pretty surprising because originally I looked forward to K-Drives! One of the biggest things that I thought looked cool on the big Fortuna reveal was the K-Drive. But now that I’ve actually… [Continue Reading]

Revisiting the Vox Solaris Quest as a Newbie

As part of the conditions of getting a refurbished laptop from me, my sister had to join me in a few games of Warframe. While playing, she wanted to customize one of the Warframes she had bought and get a new helmet for Khora. She lacked Platinum, but luckily the Khora Delphi helmet blueprint was in the Nightwave credit store, so we decided to do some Nightwave missions to get her 150 Intermission II credits so she could buy the helmet. So we decided to do some fishing, as that was the second easiest thing to do after doing mobile… [Continue Reading]

Rest in Peace Fortuna 69 – Or not!

Super edit: Turns out the DEvelopers heard our cries and brought back Fortuna 69! Now we can all be nice together again! Unfortunately, it seems like the Saint of Altra update claimed a victim and it wasn’t Volt or Zephyr being overtaken by Gauss. The Fortuna 69 instance, which had been kept alive since Fortuna was released back in October last year, failed to survive the update. Due to unfortunate timing, it seems like no one was online to stay in Fortuna 69 while other Warframe players were updating their game. Normally instances, servers used to put people in relays,… [Continue Reading]

How to Level Up Quickly With Solaris United

Grinding for Standing to level up with various Syndicates can feel boring and repetitive and often feel that it’s not worth it. That’s because the Syndicate grind IS boring and repetitive. The only way it isn’t boring and repetitive is to be an older player who has a massive backlog of Syndicate Medallions for the 6 angry Syndicates and a ton of spare resources for Solaris United, Vox Solaris and the Quills, in the form of Debt Bonds, Toroids and Sentient Cores. Sure, sure, you can spend all your life fishing and mining, mainly for Cetus and Solaris United, but… [Continue Reading]

The Weirdness of Vox Solaris

A lot of things in Fortuna and the Orb Vallis are very similar to things in Cetus and the Plains of Eidolon. Really, the biggest differences are that Fortuna has its own skateboarding syndicate and that there isn’t a boss that wanders around – you have to go into a specific instance to fight the Orb Vallis bosses. When it comes to Syndicates, Vox Solaris is pretty damn similar to the Quills, but it feels out of place. Quill Onkko’s little base is very hidden away, somewhat off the beaten track. It’s not even accessible until you’ve finished the War… [Continue Reading]

Tired of the Whiteness of the Orb Vallis

The more I think about it, the more and more tired of Fortuna and the Orb Vallis I become. There’s been something bothering me lately and I can’t quite put my finger on it. I’m going to start off with the fact that I love Fortuna. I love the aesthetic of it. I love almost all the characters you meet in Fortuna, apart from Little Duck. I bloody love the music and song tracks introduced alongside Fortuna and STILL find myself humming “We All Life Together” occasionally. The custom MOAs are cool, the Warframes that have come out of Fortuna… [Continue Reading]

The Orb Vallis is Probably a Bit Too Hard for Newbies

Fortuna and the Orb Vallis are currently where the action is at. That’s where all the big, new shiny things are right now. Garuda was there, Baruuk and the Profit-Taker Orb are there and now Hildryn, an Operation, a second Orb and a mystery are all out there on the Orb Vallis. But the Orb Vallis is a very hard place to visit if you’re a newbie. The Orb Vallis isn’t hard the way the Plains of Eidolon are. If you’re a newbie visiting the Plains, as long as you stay near the main entrance to Cetus, the enemies remain… [Continue Reading]

Little Duck

I don’t like Little Duck. There, I said it. Unpopular opinion but I think she’s not a good character. She’s a bitch, and one who could potentially get a lot of people killed. Normally, I like ducks. Ducks are cute, except when it’s mating season. They sit in water, quacking harmlessly, chasing kids that feed them bread. Rubber ducks are even better. More floating, less being horrific monsters when it comes to breeding. Little Duck though isn’t a duck at all. She works alongside Vox Solaris, helping you defeat the Orb Mothers of the Orb Vallis. Our first introduction to… [Continue Reading]

Thoughts on an Infested Open World Area

When you look at the Plains of Eidolon and the Orb Vallis, one can’t help and think “what’s next?” Logically, if you look at what the Plains of Eidolon and the Orb Vallis are themed around, you’d probably think that an Infested-themed open world area would come next. But will it? I’m not so sure. I mean, it makes sense that an Infested open world would come next. After all, we have a Corpus area and a Grineer area, and the Infested are the other major faction. The other factions, the Orokin and the Sentients, tend to command everyone else… [Continue Reading]
