A First Night on the Plains

Volt seemed uncertain as the heavy Orokin doors slammed shut behind him. This was his second time out on the plains. The last time he had been here, it was day time, and he lacked the proper tools to not only fight the swarms of Grineer roaming around, but he lacked the ability to gather other resources, such as ores and gems. He wasn’t going to make that same mistake twice. Volt also planned on not making another mistake twice. Today, he was here on the Plains on his own. No more waiting for Rhino to kill everything. No more… [Continue Reading]

On Hunting Eidolons

Really, shouldn’t the plural of Eidolon be Eidola? And aren’t they Teralysts that we’re killing? Who knows? Not me. But I THINK I know a few things about hunting those giant, whiny bastards. I also know a few things about leaving them the heck alone. Just a note, to be able to effectively kill Eidolons, you MUST have completed the War Within. You can’t do this without those pesky space spoilers. So basically, hunting Eidolons is a massive pain in the ass and only really doable solo if you have an extreme amount of patients and can juggle multiple things… [Continue Reading]

A Jack of all Trades on the Plains

“Bloody hell Medic stop with the Warframe content!” some of you may beg. No. I like Warframe. And some of our Warframe content is the most viewed stuff on the site. Plus, I feel I might have some useful tips for those who are newer to the game. “But you’re going to talk about Volt again, aren’t you?” Yes, actually. Because there’s so much stuff going on in the Plains of Eidolon that you need someone who can do a bit of everything. And Volt might not be the best at everything, but he’s bloody good at a lot of… [Continue Reading]

The Plains of Eidolon is not the Friendliest Place for Newbies Wanting to Play More Warframe

Long-winded title is long-winded, but bare with me one second. I forget that not everyone’s like me. Not everyone has their beloved Warframe with high mod capacity and a bunch of weapons they like. The Plains of Eidolon is somewhat balanced when it comes to a relatively new player, someone who has made it to Ceres, someone hovering around the MR5 mark and already understands how the basics of Warframe work. Someone who has credits and resources already. But a lot of people are just wandering around with their MK1-Bratons, their Latos and their Skanas, with a handful of mods and… [Continue Reading]

What The Fuck Do You Do? A Quick Plains of Eidolon Explanation

In true Warframe style, the Plains of Eidolon are as confusing as anything else in Warframe. Nothing is explained. You just have to guess. Well, not any more. Here’s a crappy, brief explanation of, well, the basics. Since no one tells you. Getting to the Plains You have to go to Cetus to go to the Plains for the first time. You’ll land near the big Orokin tower and have to walk through the market towards a massive Orokin door. The door will open and once you step through and go a certain distance, the door shuts, you get a… [Continue Reading]

Plains of Eidolon – First Look

The Plains of Eidolon update is here, and it’s pretty fucking big. It’s also rather laggy and buggy and messy, since over 100 thousand players are playing Warframe (via Steam) as I type this. Goodness knows how many more are playing via the standalone version. In this article, I’m going to give you a first look into the Plains of Eidolon. There’s… a handful of problems. Just so you know, SPOILERS ahead. Firstly, nodes have been moved around. Cetus, the town relay and hub, and the Plains of Eidolon are essentially the 4th place on the Star Chart and you… [Continue Reading]

The Plains of Eidolon are Here!

The Plains of Eidolon update has arrived and is available for download for PC players of Warframe. Set on Earth and accessed via the small town of Cetus, the Plains of Eidolon is a whole new way of playing Warframe. No more going back to your ship after every mission! Now you (and any squad of up to four people) can just wander around and do as you please, whether that’s slaughtering Grineer, hunting the local wildlife, mining for rare gems, going fishing or fighting massive adapting monsters which were responsible for both the downfall of the Orokin empire and… [Continue Reading]

A Little To-Do List before visiting the Plains of Eidolon

“I’m very excited now. The anticipation. Ooh. I always learn so much… from a live dissection.” – Tyl Regor The smooth-voiced Grineer scientist’s thoughts have been echoing around the Warframe community ever since the Plains of Eidolon was announced. And yes, there will probably be a lot of dissecting (well, vivisecting, to use the proper term) going on as everyone uncovers secrets and stuff. Now, with a deadline so close, everyone’s so excited and that excitement is hard to contain. Of course, there’s going to be tons of players, old and new, all rushing around Earth, but not all of… [Continue Reading]
