The Donda

Volt stared at the Donda, a small, metallic, spinning shape hovering above a diamond-shaped base, both plated in that familiar Orokin gold. Beyond the Donda was the view from the Orbiter’s window, the rings of Saturn drifting by, minding their own business. Everything was quiet. All that could be heard was the occasional beep of machinery, the ship humming away to itself. Volt adjusted the Donda, putting it neatly right by the viewing pane. It didn’t seem right to have it sitting with all his other ship decorations. He felt it needed its own spot. Something interrupted the peace and… [Continue Reading]

Another Look at Trinity

The last time I looked at Trinity, the primary healing character in Warframe, I wasn’t a fan of her. I found her tedious and awkward, while acknowledging that, with the right setup, she could be really strong. Of course, back then, I still didn’t have Continuity, nor did I have many of the higher end mods that make Trinity good. Now that I do, I think it’s time to look back at her. Basically, Trinity is the best support character one could ever ask for in a video game. Or at least, she would be if it wasn’t for her… [Continue Reading]

Shocking Capacitance

Augments in Warframe are a weird thing. They’re supposed to allow you to customize your Warframe’s abilities so you can play more how you want, but most frames only have one or two augments in total. Even older characters like Frost and Volt only have one per ability, and I don’t think any frames have more than one for any of their abilities. Really though, a lot of augments are simply buffs, with very minor downsides. Normally, the only downside is that you could put a normal mod where you put an augment, but it really depends on the character.… [Continue Reading]

Hyped up for the Plains of Eidolon

Digital Extremes, the developers of Warframe, blew the entire community’s minds when they revealed the Plains of Eidolon at Tennocon 2017. Everyone was sitting there expecting an Excalibur Umbra reveal and it turned out that Umbra was just a little thing tacked on to something amazing. A quest that’s supposedly coming after this amazing thing. A thing that I kinda didn’t really write much about, since the gameplay video really said it all, but since time’s passed and we’ve got some new details, it’s worth looking back and getting a little hyped about. The Plains of Eidolon have been advertised… [Continue Reading]

Cyprus Comic Con 2017 – Thoughts

So, Cyprus Comic Con day one has passed and now we’re on day two. I’m writing this at 9am after a nice little breakfast at a hotel fifteen minutes away. Brother slept like a log, but me and sister couldn’t really sleep. Dunno why. Breakfast at the hotel was basic. Ham, cheese, eggs, bread, cereal. Mini buffet thing. The hotel is super quiet. It actually mostly has older people in it. I assume most non-locals booked places closer or just went home. Honestly, if it wasn’t for the fact that sister REALLY wanted to go to the after party, we… [Continue Reading]

Returning to One’s (Electric) Roots

It’s taken me a while, but I’ve finally reached the point that many older Warframe players are at, with a nice armory of weapons, a nice collection of companions, a maxed out Focus school, a cool-looking Space Kid and a wardrobe of Warframes ready to be taken on any mission. Well, almost. But sitting in the back of said wardrobe is an often forgotten little friend. My original starter Warframe, Volt. I never sold Volt, I could never bring myself to do it. He’d put up with me flailing all over the place, falling down pits and running into walls… [Continue Reading]

Volt, Mercy and Handsome Jack go to Cyprus Comic Con 2017

It’s Comic Con time! Yep, old Medic here is going out into the real world for a change, getting some sun on her face and potentially even socializing with other people. How silly is that? Well, not very because I did this last year, while dressed up as the Pyro. Oh and I did it back in 2015 as well, where I dressed up as a female version of Malzahar from League of Legends. Unlike most articles, I’ll be updating this one as I go along, so check back every so often and perhaps maybe I’ll have some cool news,… [Continue Reading]

The Wonders of Captura

Warframe is a particularly nice game to look at. It’s bright and shiny, yet even on low settings, it still looks really nice. The game’s actually optimized pretty well too, even when on high settings, because of the way it loads each environment. As the majority of rooms are basically individual tiles, connected with smaller individual tiles, the game unloads each one once you’ve passed through it so it can load the next one. This makes Warframe particularly efficient and allows it to run even when on a toaster of a computer. When you turn everything up to maximum though,… [Continue Reading]

New and Improved Tips for New Warframe Players

Just under a year ago, I wrote this article about Warframe tips for new players. At the time, I was a newbie, being carried around the star chart by much more skilled players. Now though, I’m a much better player and I actually somewhat know what I’m doing. At the very least, I can give a better idea of what you should be doing. After all, older players have helped me. I should pass the baton and help newer players. Help them with some better tips. Early Choices I used to recommend choosing whatever you want as your starter character,… [Continue Reading]

On Running Too Quickly

So the other day, I was testing stupid builds on Volt and seeing how fast I could do low level capture missions. The best I managed was 65 seconds, achieved with a rather basic Speed build, but also requiring a lot of luck. The map I got turned out to be very small so I could get through it super fast. Unfortunately, Warframe is not a great game to speed run because the majority of maps are randomly generated. What I got for the 65 second Capture Mission was not normal, normally you’re looking at about 150-200m to reach the… [Continue Reading]
