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 On Call Crew Command Could be Better

After much grinding, I have finally unlocked Rank 9 Command. This unlocks the On Call ability, allowing me to summon one of my Railjack crew to help me in normal missions. It’s a nice idea to tie in Railjack and normal missions a little bit further. But, honestly, after playing around with it, I find it lacking. First off though, I’m an idiot. Smarter people than I managed to unlock all 9 ranks of the Command Intrinsic almost instantly. On the other hand, I had to grind my way back up from zero. You see, we actually got ALL our… [Continue Reading]

The Power of a Ship of AI Crew Mates

When the Railjack Retrofitted update come out, the first thing I did was throw some mods on my Railjack and do one mission. Not wanting to waste time, I just did a quick mission on Earth. Once I had one single Intrinsic, I went and unlocked the Command Intrinsic, then headed to Fortuna. Ticker had a crowd around her, and for good reason. The lovely chap had crew for us to hire. My first choice was obvious. There were a couple of people from each Syndicate, but one stood out to me. A Perrin Sequence guy called Serv Nob. How… [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]

Doing Lich Missions With An Under-Leveled Warframe

For reasons unknown, I have decided to start forma-ing my original Volt. The one I started the game with. Despite being inches away from Mastery Rank 29, I still have him. Even though I have a perfectly serviceable Volt Prime. That little Volt got me through the early game, so I feel like I want to give something back to him. By forma-ing him to perfection. But because I’m stubborn, I didn’t want to just level up Volt on Hydron or Elite Sanctuary Onslaught. I just decided to take him on my day to day business. So I decided to… [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]

Kuva Liches Are So Dead

I made a mistake the other day. A big mistake. After doing some missions to help someone make some progress with their own Kuva Lich, I decided to roll the dice and get a new Kuva Lich, hoping for one of the Kuva weapons I don’t have. Well, I gambled poorly, getting a low percentage Lich with no Ephemera and a weapon I already had, and even worse it’s an electric Lich, because I thought Excalibur (you know, the Warframe with a flaming sword) would create a heat-based Lich rather than an electric one. Oh, and to make matters far,… [Continue Reading]

How I would make a Kuva Lich System

While the new Kuva Lich system in Warframe has had some changes, like a very slight decrease in Thralls required, Liches no longer stealing the things you need to kill them and now the opportunity to not get the same weapon twice in a row, there’s still a few massive problems with it all: the system is too enclosed, requiring you to actively go out and hunt a Lich down for 1-5 hours for mediocre rewards; and Kuva Liches aren’t actually Liches in any way. The latter problem is quite easy to solve by making it so that you can… [Continue Reading]
