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 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. After you defeat Vor in the tutorial quest, you’re left to wander around. You can only really go to Venus, the path to Mars is locked off behind things on Venus and Mercury, and the moon is missing. Venus is a simple and inexplicably cold planet.… [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]

The Zenistar

There’s not much I dislike about Warframe, but one thing I dislike is the daily login rewards, known as Daily Tributes. It’s as if the Lotus is saying to you “oh god, thanks for coming back, Tenno! Here’s a token of my gratitude.” And by ‘token’, she means token. Your Daily Tribute is often a single ‘rare’ component, ones that can be found in any mission on any planet, and by the time you’ve reached your 200th tribute, you’ve probably got tons of. One piece of Gallium. One Neurode. One Fieldron Sample. Sometimes you’ll get a random blueprint for literally… [Continue Reading]

Give Everyone Vacuum Already

For the longest of times, I’ve used Carrier and his big brother Carrier Prime. While Carrier Prime looks much less like a floating nut sack, it does have more armour and is all-round tankier, having more armour than many actual Warframes. The main reason I use them is for Ammo Case, a mod that converts unused ammo into ammo I actually need. The second reason I use Carrier is for Vacuum. The reason I’m writing this article is because I finally matured Spasma, my Helminth Charger, and leveled her up to 30. It was a boring, tedious experience. For some… [Continue Reading]

Send Nidus

Are you looking for a nice, rounded Warframe to act out your reign of terror against the Corpus? Are you in need of a strong, varied Warframe capable of dealing with any Grineer? Are you interested in a Warframe with a can-do attitude? Well, my friends, Nidus is for you! Call 8000 SPUF now, make a small payment of $20 and we’ll send a Nidus your way! Not really. But Nidus is an amazing character. He’s got a wonderful kit that doesn’t cost you all your energy, nor does it become weak and useless at high levels, nor is it… [Continue Reading]

The Amazing Eternals – A Bad Name for a Mediocre Game

The Amazing Eternals, formerly known as Keystone, is a game being developed by Digital Extremes, the people behind Warframe. They’ve recently entered a beta phase, and it turns out I got access to play their beta game. I also managed to snag the name Medic (rather than using Retvik), just in case it turns out that we’re annoying brats playing a game rather than hardcore warriors. The premise of the game is simple. You’re playing a board game, and each title is a battle. The layout and look is a somewhat cheesy 80’s board game/comic style. After each battle, you… [Continue Reading]

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]
