Razorback Armadas and Balor Fomorians – Recurring Tactical Alerts and How to Do Them

All those invasions you do? They do something. They help the Grineer and the Corpus fund their massive projects. Yes, us Tenno have defeated the Balor Fomorians a dozen times. Yes, us Tenno have destroyed the Razorback Armada a dozen times. Yet we keep on helping them, thus they keep on building the funds to restart these projects and have to fight them again. It’s all our fault really, but dag nabbit, we NEED those Detonite Injectors and Fieldrons! So how do we do these missions? It’s not always obvious. The Lotus pops by, drops an item in our inventory… [Continue Reading]

Specters ARE Useful!

So Specters, NPC clones you can make of your Warframes to assist you in missions, they got buffed. Big time. They can now do a much wider range of things, like using abilities! The 22.10 Warframe update hugely increased the AI of Warframe specters so that they can both use weapons better and use their actual Warframe abilities. That means that if you use one in a mission, it will actually do things! Last time I talked about Specters, they weren’t useful at all. In fact, I had only built a set of Warframe Specters to get past a planetary… [Continue Reading]

Trading in Warframe

If you want to get anywhere in Warframe, you need to learn how to trade. The only thing required to progress in Warframe that requires the premium currency of Platinum is the slot. Weapon slots and Warframe slots mainly. The other slots, for Archwings, Archwing Weapons, Sentinels, Pets and Riven Mods, they’re not compulsory but needed if you want to get everything. Things like Orokin Reactors and Catalysts, or Exilus Adapters, they can be obtained during events, given as rewards during sorties or are featured in Alert missions. It’s just Weapon slots (at 12 platinum for 2 slots) and Warframe… [Continue Reading]

Some Good Mods for Sentinels

I’ve mentioned a few times that Sentinels are better than Kubrows and Kavats. The reasons are obvious. Sentinels don’t run face first into danger, they are far easier to maintain, they are cheaper to make, you can give them different weapons and they don’t need to be fed. But Sentinels have the added bonus of also having more initial polarities than companions too. Which means you can squeeze more mods on your floating buddies. But what mods should you use? Before we start, when companions, it matters where your mods go. For mods that make your Sentinel actively do things… [Continue Reading]

Health VS Shields – What’s the Better Choice in Warframe?

In Warframe, you have both health and shields. This is common in a lot of games, but not every game allows you to increase one or the other or both as you please. But not everyone has the capacity to slap a fully leveled health or shields mod on their Warframe. Maybe your Warframe hasn’t reached level 30 yet? Or maybe you don’t have any aura mods or means to increase capacity? Or maybe you simply don’t have room for both mods and have to pick one or the other? So which one do you choose? That’s what I hope… [Continue Reading]

Random Tips for Plague Star – the new Operation

Fancy a chance at getting the new Hunter series of set mods, that work on companions? Fancy a chance to get the Snipetron?

Fancy walking across the entirety of the Plains in order for the same rewards to be repeated over and over? If any of those appeal to you, then the new Operation: Plague Star is for you! So a massive infested meteor has crashed in the Plains of Eidolon and now it’s spitting infested… [Continue Reading]

Tips on doing Warframe Sorties

For ages I held off on doing Sorties. Part of it was because, back before the War Within came out, I wasn’t a particularly good player and most of my weapons and frames were lacking in forma and Orokin reactors and catalysts. Then the War Within came out and locked Sorties away from me, meaning I couldn’t do them until I finished that infernal quest. Still, almost everything else in the solar system is under level 50, so the idea of sorties always seemed scary to me, especially when the chances of good loot weren’t that great. Now I’m finally… [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]

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]
