The Sentients are Bastards

The Sentients are bastards. There, I said it. While maybe insulting the next biggest threat is probably a bad idea, I want to point out that the Sentients are bastards and they could have stopped all of this. There never had to be a new war. Or, really, an old war. But here we are, fighting Sentients. But what ARE Sentients? The Sentients are an AI race created by Orokin engineers, who were designed to go to the “Tau system to prepare it for Orokin rule”. They were given the ability to adapt, build and terraform and were sent to… [Continue Reading]

The Split Flights Mod

On 27th March 2020, Baro Ki’Teer appeared with a brand new mod that cost 300 Ducats. This mod had been seen before, accidentally leaked via Transmuting. But it remained without a proper release for a very long time until people could get it normally. The mod in question is Split Flights, a mod specifically for Bows. Now, we get mods for specific weapon types all the time, but why is am I writing an article about this one? Well, I feel like it’s fundamentally flawed. Split Flights is simple at first. Whenever you hit an enemy, you get +100% Multishot… [Continue Reading]

Why Operation Scarlet Spear is Bad

From my point of view, Operation Scarlet Spear isn’t very good. I’m not going to claim that it’s the worst thing ever, because that’s not true at all. But there are a number of problems that need to be talked about. And rather than getting all angry about everything, I’m going to go through each of these problems one by one. Like I said before though, I’m not going to mention bugs. Bugs can be fixed. There are fundamental flaws with this event though, and those can’t be fixed. The Lore is all wrong Firstly, the lore is all wrong.… [Continue Reading]

What The Fuck is Warframe’s Lore Anyway? – New War Lore

Last time I sat down and chatted about Warframe lore, we stopped at the end of the Sacrifice quest. That was… a while ago. But rather than go through all that old lore again, I’ve decided to just skip ahead and start talking about the lore for the New War, which is supposedly the next big thing. So sit down and strap yourselves in because we’ve got quite a bit of stuff to talk about. A warning before I start: This article CONTAINS SPOILERS. It is discussing a huge amount of newer lore, which newer players might not be able… [Continue Reading]

Things the Scarlet Spear Operation Probably Needs

Operation Scarlet Spear has left an awful taste in people’s mouths. Despite being a long-wanted event, the amount of grind, the bugs and the all-round confusion have made the operation a pain in the butt. People aren’t enjoying the missions at all. But while bugs and the like will be fixed eventually, here are a few… quality of life features I think this operation needs. Better Reward Scaling on Ground Missions No matter how you look at it, it’s better to do Murex if you want credits. While Murex are slower missions, they are somewhat easier to cheese and give… [Continue Reading]

Operation Scarlet Spear is Absolutely Pointless Solo

There’s a LOT of problems with Operation Scarlet Spear, which I’ll get to in time. But for me, right now, the biggest issue is that these missions are arbitrarily harder if you do them solo. You are forced to join a team if you want decent rewards or if you want, well, efficiency. There’s no way around it. Is solo doable? Definitely. In fact, solo is perfectly doable. With just a Limbo, you can make the Railjack mission simple as heck. The ground mission requires nothing more than a Sarpa to get rid of the Condix’s armour. I managed to… [Continue Reading]

The Troubles With Running Out of Things To Level Up

It’s pretty easy to get to MR16 in Warframe. The journey is a long, grindy one, but it’s mostly simple. You farm for materials, you build weapons and warframes, you sell them and build more. Rinse and repeat. At low MRs, there is so much to grab that you get overwhelmed, but as you get into the swing of things, it gets so much easier. When you get to the high 20’s though? Things change. You start running out of items. By items, I mean easy items to level up. Ideally, if you’re going for efficiency, your best bet is… [Continue Reading]

Operation Scarlet Spear – A Simple Event With An Awful Grind

After a promise of “early March”, Operation Scarlet Spear has arrived, alongside a bunch of other changes. The other changes are numerous, mostly bug fixes, as well as a Nova skin and some augments. But the Operation is… something else. And not in a good way. For starters, it’s buggy. This is basically guaranteed for every new event that comes out these days. Scarlet Spear is no different. It’s full of crashes. Okay, sure, a lot of this is being fixed as we go along, but it’s a pain in the ass. Between people crashing and the bugs, not much… [Continue Reading]

Self Damage Is No More

Self Damage no longer exists in Warframe, at least when it comes to explosive weapons. No longer can you blow yourself up while using an explosive weapon. You don’t have to play Inaros or Wukong to use the Kuva Bramma. Squishy frames no longer instantly die from misfiring alternate-fire modes like the Corinth. And I no longer have to scoop my Ogris-using friend off the floor every other mission! Actually, I take that back, self-damage still exists in some exceptions. For example, the Nightwatch Napalm mod for the Ogris. But in 99% of cases? Self damage is gone. Self damage… [Continue Reading]

On Being Finished With Kuva Liches, For Now

The other day, I converted a Kuva Lich, sparing its life and allowing it to live. Sparing this Lich meant it had the chance to one day join me in future missions as an ally. But it also meant that I was finally finished with Liches. This last Lich, an Impact-based one, gave me the Shockwave Ephemera. Because of that, I now had a complete collection of Vengeful Ephemeras. Alongside having one of each type of Kuva Weapon, I was done. Until the next batch of Kuva Lich-related updates, I no longer need to hunt Liches. However I could still… [Continue Reading]
