Is it Bad That Primed Warframes are Easier To Get Than Normal Frames?

As of writing, the latest Warframe is Inaros Prime, a golden upgrade to the infamous health tank that is normal Inaros. Inaros’s acquisition is quite simple: you buy a blueprint from Baro Ki’Teer and do a quest, which hands you Inaros parts at the end. The Sands of Inaros quest isn’t very difficult, nor is it very long. But it is a pretty nice quest with some nice side-lore. Inaros Prime on the other hand, you can just get him by opening relics. Like every other Prime, his parts appear in specific relics. So you farm up the relics and… [Continue Reading]

The Problems with Lucky Friends

After the strange Incense Sentret event, me and my brother did what we always do. We traded a bunch of the Pokemon we caught for extra candy. After the very first trade though, because it was our first interaction of the day, something special happened. Amazingly, after months and months, we became Lucky Friends! This meant we could do a trade and that trade would be guaranteed lucky. Because I had hatched two shiny Riolus, I decided to trade one to my brother. He traded me a shiny Mewtwo since he had a surplus of them. What happened next was… [Continue Reading]

Why Warframe Shouldn’t Have an MMO-Style Market

Every time something vaguely related to trading comes up in Warframe, someone always shouts that we need an MMO-style market. Or an auction shop, or whatever you want to call it. The idea being that users just throw up what they want to sell and buyers can just click a button instantly and get their item. After all, an auction house works great in other games, doesn’t it? Surely it’ll work in Warframe and it’ll make trading so much easier! But I don’t think it will. I actually think an auction house will make trading worse. Now, that’s a rather… [Continue Reading]

Retvik’s Ridiculous Guide to Rolling and Selling Rivens 2020 Edition

Riven mods are strange, multifaceted mods designed by Cephalon Samodeus (an otherwise unknown Cephalon), designed to fit into a single weapon and capable of having the mod’s stats rerolled by pumping thousands upon thousands of tons of Kuva into said mods. Riven mods are easily traded and can be incredibly valuable if you get very lucky. Alternatively they can just take up space in your Mod list, eventually accumulating to the point where you have to sell them or you can’t do Sorties any more. They also have the ability to make your favourite guns even better, despite their randomness… [Continue Reading]

Fifty Platinum – What Should You Do With It?

When you start Warframe, you’re given 50 Platinum. Platinum is the premium currency of Warframe which, unlike many other premium currencies, can be traded with other players. Most of the time. The 50 Platinum you start off with though can only be spent in the Warframe Market and can’t be traded with other players in any way. The question is, how do you spend that Platinum? It’s very tempting to instantly spend that 50 Platinum on one of the cheap Syandanas for your Warframe. The Uru Syandana for example is very nice, with a metallic sheen to it and a… [Continue Reading]

A Complete Lack of Mesa Prime

You know what? I was going to do one of my weird ability breakdowns and warframe review articles because there’s quite a few frames that I’ve missed, the most obvious one being Mesa. Mesa is a hugely popular gunslinger-based Warframe who very recently got a Prime upgrade. Mesa Prime looks amazing and comes with a bunch of very nice weapons, the Akjagara Prime and the Redeemer Prime, all coated in that lovely Orokin gold. I had planned to write a nice little article about how cool both Mesa and Mesa Prime were, then show off some nice fashionframe for Mesa… [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]

Mann Up Mode – A Very Fun Scam

Mann Up mode for Mann VS Machine is a scam. There, I said it. It’s a scam. A pretty expensive one, although not as expensive a scam as keys are. Particularly for early crates with just weapons and hats in, those crates were the scammiest of scams unless you got an unusual hat. But anyway, yes, Mann Up is not good, if you want to win some fun prizes. The first problem is simple. You have to complete a tour of anywhere between 3 and 6 missions to be able to have a chance at winning a good prize, like… [Continue Reading]

On Buying Warframes with Platinum

The other day, I checked my Warframe profile and was amazed to see that Ivara has sneaked her way into being my third most played Warframe, after Volt and Volt Prime. Wasn’t really that much of a surprise because Ivara is insanely useful in Spy missions, but she also comes in very handy for a large number of smaller tasks, such as quick alert missions, looking for and scanning enemies with her larger Enemy Sense, completing Riven mods and general roaming the plains. In fact, after Volt, Ivara is a really good Warframe on the Plains of Eidolon, as she… [Continue Reading]

Retvik’s Ridiculous Guide to Rolling and Selling Rivens

Riven mods. All the potential in the world to make your favourite weapons amazing, locked away behind a wall of randomness and horrible Kuva. They’re also locked away behind a limited amount of space, with a base amount of 15 Riven Mod slots, with more riven slots costing you 60 platinum for a measly 3 slots. They’re expensive and annoying and disappointing and if you want to make use of them, not end up with an inventory of crap or make some platinum, you need to learn how and when to get rid of them. Let’s make things clear right… [Continue Reading]
