A Quick look at Sisters of Parvos

I’m going to be honest here. Somehow, I don’t really understand the Sisters of Parvos. The whole system is pretty much identical to Kuva Liches. But something feels a bit off about them. For some reason, they feel both better and worse off than Kuva Liches. Gameplay-wise, fighting a Sister is simple. It is basically the same as fighting a Kuva Lich. You follow the same exact steps. First, you stab things, then you try and figure out the random combination. Once you successfully stab them, you do a Railjack mission to finish them off. Except, in the case of… [Continue Reading]

The Kuva Lich Showdown is Pretty Neat

I haven’t had a Kuva Lich for ages. But with the Sisters of Parvos update, we got some new Kuva weapons. So I grabbed my trusty Kuva Bramma and Kuva Twin Stubbas and started a new hunt. After only two Cassini capture missions, I created a new Lich with a new weapon. I was expecting this new Kuva Lich fight to be a slog, but I was pleasantly surprised. Well, pleasantly surprised isn’t the best term to use. But hunting my Kuva Lich wasn’t too bad. As of writing, I haven’t done any Sisters of Parvos Queenpins, but they kinda… [Continue Reading]

A Fancy Yellow Invitation

Rakk Stugg grunted as he slammed his fist into the ever-growing pile of smashed alarm clocks. Much to his annoyance though, the beeping was still playing. After smashing his armoured gauntlet into the crunchy heap a coupe more times, Rakk realized that, just maybe, the beeping sound was coming from somewhere else in the small, cramped crewship. Pulling himself out of his old, shitty sleeping pod, Rakk inspected the room, making sure everything was in its old, crappy place. The old Grineer pipes, the rusty wall panels, the clunky, anti-degeneration equipment, it all reminded him of the old days. Before… [Continue Reading]

The Other Kind of Lich

Most Liches in Warframe come in two variants. The first never lives for very long. After all, they have a weapon or an ephemera. Things that the Tenno want or need. These Liches get hunted down and either killed or traded away. We need those weapons to complete our collections or better weapons we already have. And Liches with Ephemeras aren’t worth much, but they can be sold on for a modest amount of Platinum. These Liches never live for very long. Most people will try and kill them as quickly as possible. The sooner you kill a Lich, the… [Continue Reading]

Kuva Weapons – Liches, Percentages, Forma

Kuva Weapons are a bit of an anomaly in Warframe. Most weapons are available only after you have built them, or bought for vast amounts of ducats. Event weapons are often just deposited in your inventory. But with Kuva weapons, you can grab them straight from the foundry. Even though they are just given to you though, Kuva weapons need a lot of work. They are also… pretty damn random. Obtaining a Kuva Weapon Getting a Kuva Weapon sounds simple on the surface. All you have to do is kill a Kuva Lich! Well, actually, you have to spend ages… [Continue Reading]

How Would Corpus Kuva Liches Even Work?

As with everything in Warframe, we always get a Grineer version of a thing first, followed by a Corpus version. This has been the case for ages. For example, we got the Plains of Eidolon, which is Grineer, then later on we got Fortuna, which is Corpus. The same will happen with Railjack and, eventually, Kuva Liches. But how would Corpus Liches even work? At first, this seems like an easy question to answer. You just have randomly generated Corpus enemies, the same way you do for Grineer Liches. The process would be similar too. You have your Parazon, you… [Continue Reading]

On Being Finished With Kuva Liches, For Now

The other day, I converted a Kuva Lich, sparing its life and allowing it to live. Sparing this Lich meant it had the chance to one day join me in future missions as an ally. But it also meant that I was finally finished with Liches. This last Lich, an Impact-based one, gave me the Shockwave Ephemera. Because of that, I now had a complete collection of Vengeful Ephemeras. Alongside having one of each type of Kuva Weapon, I was done. Until the next batch of Kuva Lich-related updates, I no longer need to hunt Liches. However I could still… [Continue Reading]

PSA: Always Stab Your Kuva Lich

There is literally no reason to ever attempt to stab a Kuva Lich now. With the Warframe Revision update, while we didn’t get anything particularly new or shiny, we did get a long list of changes. Funnily enough though, the Kuva Lich changes were mostly minimal. Most of the changes were simply bug fixes. But the major change was the most important. Stabbing a Kuva Lich and not getting the correct combination now grants murmurs to your entire squad. This is a massive change because it means everyone benefits from the appearance of any Lich, not just their own. And… [Continue Reading]

Kuva Liches Could Have Been the Best Companions – The Problems with Converted Liches

The other day, I was attacked by my active Kuva Lich, one with an Ephemera and a 56% status weapon, i.e. an insanely good Lich to have. Unfortunately, this Lich in particular was immune to Corrosive and had a Toxin-based Kuva Bramma, so every shot it did would grenade a wide area with damage that ignored shields. Being a Toxin Kuva Lich, it also had two radiation-based abilities copied straight from an Oberon’s evil twin, meaning that fighting the Lich with a squad meant everyone would die. And on top of all of that, the asshole didn’t spawn for 8… [Continue Reading]

Smoothing Down the Kuva Lich Grind

February brings with it a lot of things, like everything immediately being Valentines Day related and slathered in red. Warframe is kinda doing the same thing with a small Kuva Lich update, because those Liches sure do love being awful. Or perhaps not, as there’s a bunch of changes to Kuva Liches that make them far less awful to grind for. Yep, we got a Kuva Lich 1.5 update, and the changes are all round pretty damn good. To the point that I completely glossed over the fact that Ivara Deluxe is now available. The first and most important change… [Continue Reading]
