Excalibur, Volt, Mag – Which Starter Should You Pick?

You’ve finally downloaded that weird space ninja game everyone’s talking about. You’ve installed like 40GB’s worth of stuff. You’ve made an account and you’re finally getting into the game.

You have no idea what’s going on, you don’t know anything yet. This is a big decision that can impact your enjoyment of this game. What do you do? Heck, you might have already picked a character and might be wondering whether you’ve chosen wrong or something!… [Continue Reading]

A Rounded Warframe Recommendation Collection

There’s a point in Warframe that you are capable of starting to obtain new Warframes but you don’t know which ones to go for or even whether you CAN obtain them. You most likely don’t have that many resources and you certainly don’t have many Warframe slots so you have to be careful which Warframes you work towards. So, because you probably have a limit on how many Warframes you can own, it’s good to focus on one good Warframe for various tasks that you need, from dealing huge damage to stunning enemies to being hard to kill. To help… [Continue Reading]

What To Buy From Baro Ki’Teer on July 6th

July 6th is the date for Tennocon, the annual real life Warframe event hosted in London, Canada. Despite it being a real life event with tickets that sell out insanely quickly, where you get to meet the people at Digital Extremes as well as other Warframe fans, there’s actually a lot to do for people who can’t come in person. For example, every year there is a special Tennocon Dev Stream, and this year pretty much all the cool stuff will be streamed live on Twitch and Mixxer. There’s also the Digital Tennocon pass which lets you get some neat… [Continue Reading]

A Simple Modding Guide for Weapons

Modding in Warframe can be tricky. Between the random rarity of mods you need, the time you have to play, the amount of credits you have and the amount of Endo you are able to obtain, making sure your weapons are strong enough to deal with enemies isn’t an easy task. And then you have to work out what mods you have to stick on your weapons in the first place. Well, here’s the really, really simple guide. Step 1: Base Damage Mods. You want to get these mods, put them on your weapons and fully rank them if possible.… [Continue Reading]

A Thought About Mid-Star Chart Difficulty

It occurred to me the other day, while I was messing around trying to scan an Amalgram on a Gas City capture mission, that things are going to be a tad different for any newer players passing through Jupiter. When I say a ‘tad’ different, I mean completely different. Before the Jovian Concord*, Jupiter was never a hard planet but it was never easy either. Ceres and Jupiter are where the difficulty spikes for a new player. While the Grineer just seem to need more hits before dying and introduce Guardsmen who will try and block things, Jupiter’s Corpus just… [Continue Reading]

Ember and the Helpful Stranger

The little Ember sent her message again, knowing that it would be ignored. Her message entered the Recruitment Channel and swiftly disappeared, pushed aside by a stream of other messages all saying things she didn’t understand. “LF AXI L3” “H 4X3 NEED HARROW” “LF PROFITTAKER” “H ESO 3/4” None of it made any sense to the little Ember. She just wanted some help, but the Cephalon from the Global Channel had sent her here. Suddenly, something beeped. A communication. A private one. Another Tenno had messaged Ember directly. “Heya, do you still need help?” Ember beamed as she hastily replied.… [Continue Reading]

Pokemon Go Tips for Twonks

It’s fine, being a newbie. Everyone was a newbie once. Most people grow out of it as they learn and get better. Some people *cough* like me *cough* could use a little extra help. So here’s a bunch of random tips that I’ve picked up since I started playing back in August. Use The Whole Screen Don’t be an idiot like me. You can use the whole screen to throw a Pokeball. This is most useful on those bastard Legendaries (and Pokemon like Gengar and Clefable) who like to stand really far away and taunt you as balls bounce at… [Continue Reading]

Ways to Help Newbies

Ever since the Plains of Eidolon were announced, there’s been a constant stream of new players. Unfortunately Warframe does a horrendous job of explaining things, so a lot of these newbies need help. But you don’t need to be an MR20+ player to help newbies, anyone can give them a hand! Here’s a few ways to help new players. Because they genuinely need it. Hang around on Region and Recruitment Chat There’s always people asking questions, so why not answer some of them? There’s also always people asking for help with missions (often defense missions, which are pretty hard to… [Continue Reading]

Easy Things To Sell For Platinum

The way Warframe is set up, you can easily play Warframe and never spend a penny on it. But in order to do so, you do need to wander into the world of trading. While I’ve mentioned a few things that can make you a quick buck before, I think it’s time to have an updated list of things guaranteed to get you some Platinum. Whether you wade through the Trade Chat in-game or sit in your dojo waiting for people to message you via warframe.market is up to you, but these things will pretty much always help build up… [Continue Reading]

5 Things To Do Before Fortuna is Released

Fortuna, the massive expansion and somewhat open world area of Venus, is fast approaching, with developers Digital Extremes claiming that it’ll come out in November. On top of that, secret messages have been sent out, teasing Fortuna and the Orb Vallis further. But before we all jump into our landing crafts and head down to Venus, there’s probably a few things we should do first. Get an Archwing Launcher The Orb Vallis is a very big place, at least double the size of the Plains of Eidolon. We’re going to need a way to get around quickly and we probably… [Continue Reading]
