WOLF HUNT!

Finally! Time for revenge! Time to fight the Wolf, the cowardly bastard that he is! One of my biggest complaints about Nightwave was how we so rarely ever got to fight the Wolf himself. I have captured tons of his fellow prisoners, the bitchy, molotov-throwing scumbags, but I only actually met the Wolf a grand total of 10 times, only twice of which he actually dropped any loot that was worth even picking up. But now, with the Wolf Hunt Tactical Alert, we can reliably fight the Wolf! The Wolf though does not go down easy though. There are two… [Continue Reading]

Nightwave is Kinda Naff, Really

We’re on week 9 of Nightwave. It feels like Nightwave has been around forever. Slowly plodding along, being in the background, compelling you to do random tasks for some strange reason. And frankly, after so long, my opinions on Nightwave have dropped lower and lower and lower. To the point that I miss random alerts. Random alerts weren’t always great. If you wanted Vauban for example, all you could do was wait and hope that you get an alert. There was no way around it, aside from buying things in the market. But not everything could be bought from the… [Continue Reading]

On Being Done with Nightwave Already

Wow. It’s only been seven weeks and I’ve just hit level 30 on Nightwave… Wait, it’s been seven weeks? Seven weeks of weekly and daily random tasks that have nothing to do with a bunch of escaped prisoners? Wow. Right off the bat, I don’t know if that’s a long time or not long at all. Nightwave has felt like it has dragged on forever, but it also feels somewhat short. I think a lot of this is because Nightwave resets on a Sunday evening (or about 2am on Monday for me) and I generally manage to get most of… [Continue Reading]

Finding and Fighting the Wolf of Saturn Six

You know that whole Nightwave thing? The thing about a Wolf? A Wolf of Saturn Six? Yeah, there’s a guy called the Wolf and he has a bunch of buddies and we need to kill or capture them all. Occasionally. That’s the whole theme of this Nightwave event. Kinda. While we do random tasks to please Nora Night, there’s a chance that Saturn Six Prisoners might spawn. You murder these guys and capture them like, well, capture targets. But occasionally, you might get a visit from the Wolf himself. When I say “occasionally”, I mean insanely rarely. By insanely rarely,… [Continue Reading]

Yet More Problems with Nightwave

I know I’ve gone on about Nightwave a lot, but it’s the current new thing in Warframe, replacing an ancient relic that has been in the game for years. Sure, Alerts weren’t ever that important aside from rare Gift of the Lotus missions and things like that, but Nightwave has a lot more… urgency to it. Nightwave comes in ‘Seasons’ or ‘Episodes’, and we are currently on the first season, the Wolf of Saturn Six. There’s a vague story behind it, that this Wolf guy has broken out of a high security prison and him and his buddies are now… [Continue Reading]

Finding Friends and Middle Ground – Gripes with Nightwave

It’s only been a week since Nightwave was released and already there are patterns being made. And with any new thing, there are always gripes and problems and complaints. Nightwave certainly has a few of them and it’s mostly to do with the challenges. The first week’s set of challenges were all pretty easy. Sure, about half my clan didn’t have any filled Ayatan Sculptures so they needed to run around and find some more to fill (that’s where the Ayatan sortie luck comes in handy) but all the challenges were doable for an end-game player. For a lower level… [Continue Reading]
