John Prodman’s Autograph

Despite me being Mastery Rank 30, there’s still a lot of… tidbits I haven’t done yet. Small challenges and hunts that I never got around to. While I did eventually get max rank with the Ventkids, I never bothered with Conclave. And don’t get me started on finding all the Kurias. But one of the slightly more challenging things on this list is quite simple really. That challenge was an hour in the Index.

Retvik’s Thoughts on the Roar Pre-Nerf

The Other Other Other Starter Frame

I’ve talked about Excalibur, the poster child and best choice for your first Warframe. I’ve talked about Mag and how I don’t really understand how she works. I’ve gone on and on about Volt and you’re all probably sick of hearing about him. But none of these three are truly the best starter character.

Venus is a simple and inexplicably cold planet.… [Continue Reading]
