The Helminth System – Too Expensive to Experiment

So I finally got my Helminth component from Son, and I finally got the bastard installed. At first, I was actually pretty excited. There were all sorts of cool combinations to be had. But now that I have the Helminth ready to go in my ship, I realise it’s all just… a chore. And yet more grind. But not the fun sort of grind. The Entrati grind and the segment costs are fine. Getting to rank 3 is pretty easy with the Entrati, as is obtaining the segment. Sure, you need to do a ton of conservation, but it’s definitely… [Continue Reading]

Retvik’s Thoughts on the Roar Pre-Nerf

As part of some desperate attempt to not break Warframe completely, some subsumed abilities will be nerfed. What does this mean? This means that, when the Helminth system comes out, some abilities won’t be identical. For example, Roar won’t have the same strength on other frames as it does Rhino. It’s only a handful of abilities, but it’s caused an uproar (no pun intended) in the Warframe community. Why? I don’t really know. But honestly, as a person with a blog, I really don’t know what the big deal is. Seriously, take a moment to stop and think about this.… [Continue Reading]

On Farming Warframes to Feed to An Infested Monster

When I watched TennoLive 2020 and saw a Mag get killed and absorbed by a wall, I had two thoughts. My first thought was “what did Mag do to deserve that?” My second thought was “damn, am I going to need more Warframes?” Luckily, I have answers to both those questions. The Mag did nothing wrong. And yes, I will need a lot more Warframes. Not just any Warframes however. I will need normal Warframes. The basic ones. No Primes allowed. Luckily, I kept some of them, right? Well, yes and no. I still have my original Starter Volt. He’s… [Continue Reading]

Is A Warframe Alive and Conscious?

With the Heart of Deimos update, we’ll be getting a new Helminth and a new infested room on our ship. Inside that room, we’ll be able to do some horrible things, like feeding a massive mouth on the wall and injecting our Warframes with new powers. We’ll also be able to murder Warframes. More precisely, we can feed them to the Helminth. And doing so will give us a Warframe ability we can put onto other Warframes. So yeah. We’re killing Warframes. But is this morally correct? Okay, that’s a bit of an unfair question. Warframe is dripping with immorality.… [Continue Reading]

Eating Warframes, Taking their Powers and Giving them to Other Warframes – WHAT?

TennoLive 2020 was a roller coaster of emotions and chaos, swirling around the Heart of Deimos. It’s a new open world involving ancient Orokin and a fuckton of new Infested stuff. It’s going to be massive, building on what Fortuna and Cetus created. A strange, hideous yet beautiful landscape filled with fleshy tunnels, demented death mechs, insects used as K-Drives and more. I don’t want to talk about that though. It’s interesting, but not today’s subject. I want to talk about what came BEFORE the Heart of Deimos. Let’s talk about this whole Helminth thing. But to do so, we… [Continue Reading]
