On Having Multiple Colour Schemes

With so many colour palettes, skins, armour sets and fancy syandanas, there’s so many ways you can customize your Warframes AND your weapons. And your companions. And your ship. And your Archwing. And your ship’s interior. In fact, there’s so much customization that I was originally very lost and confused, not sure what colour to make what item. In fact, in my very early days, I bounced around constantly on colour schemes. Even when I settled on yellow, I didn’t know which yellow to pick. Or what colours should go alongside that yellow.I went through a couple of colour phases,… [Continue Reading]

Fishing and Mining and Capturing Small Animals in the Orb Vallis

With the Fortuna update, there are more minerals to mine, more gems to refine and more fish to, er, fish. There is also the whole capturing animals and sending them off to safety via miniature helicopters, but let’s talk about the more familiar things first. Mining got the biggest changes. The whole tracing minigame is gone, having beem replaced with a heating minigame. Basically, while zoomed in, you can click and hold M1 on the glowing circles of any ore vein and hold it until it’s in the white highlighted area. Sometimes the correct area moves around, sometimes it is… [Continue Reading]

Ticker

Most of the NPCs in Fortuna are basically cyborg Corpus slave variants of the NPCs found in Cetus. Eudico is the Konzu of Fortuna, Rude Zuud sells you kit guns in the same way that Hok sells you Zaw parts and there’s all the fishing and mining stuff that the Business and Smokefinger deal with as well. Little Duck is basically the same as Onkko, being Fortuna’s Quills representative. But frankly I don’t like her, since she insulted Excalibur Umbra, refusing to speak to him and wanting to speak to Space Kids only. Umbra has feelings, you know! There are… [Continue Reading]

Nezha- Not A Trap In Any Way What So Ever

I never understood the whole thing about calling Nezha a trap. Sure, the Warframe based on the folklore deity isn’t the thickest Warframe around, he isn’t the beefiest and he’s certainly not very muscular, but even with the little ribbons on his default helmet, Nezha never looked feminine to me. The source material was always supposed to be playful and flirty with both genders, but Warframe Nezha… I just don’t get it. Nezha’s a male Warframe. He doesn’t even have a hint of breasts, legs and chest like most female Warframes do. If anything, Warframes like Loki and Volt have… [Continue Reading]

Archwing VS K-Drives?

It seems a silly question as to what’s better, Archwing or K-Drives. Both are basically infinite in their uses, but surely the answer is the K-Drive, the awesome hoverboard skateboard thing that’s rewarded to players for completing the Vox Solaris quest, which you can use to zip and zoom and trick your way across the Orb Vallis, right? Surely the K-Drive is better than that boring old Archwing? Well… yes and no. You see, there’s generally two states of mind when you’re playing in the Orb Vallis. You’re either wandering around or you’re doing bounties. One of those activities has… [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]

Vox Solaris – An Intro Quest to Fortuna and the Orb Vallis

Yes, I stayed up until the update hit. For me, it arrived at around 11pm, and you bet your ass that I stayed up and waited for 4gb of data to download on my slow-as-heck internet connection. It was one of the longest waits I’ve had in a while, but it was also reasonably short. And of course, the first thing I do is go to Fortuna! Just like Plains of Eidolon, Fortuna has an opening cut scene you only ever see the first time you go there. Unlike Plains of Eidolon, I couldn’t help but sing along. Also unlike… [Continue Reading]

Three Ways to Get Rich Without Playing the Index

I am so damn tired of the Index. Yes, even the easy version is by far the best way to make a fuckton of money in a not very long time. If you have a proper set of weapons for the Index and a Rhino or Trinity, you’re basically good to go. It’s not even that difficult. But the Index is so boring and same-y and nothing ever changes about it. That being said, there have always been ways to get rich in Warframe. Ways that do not involve playing the Index. Here’s the three best ways to get rich.… [Continue Reading]

Warframe’s Fortuna update has been released

After a tense few months, the Fortuna update is finally here for PC, and it’s a big one! Over 4GB of big! Sadly Consoles have to wait a bit, but they’ll get Fortuna soon! What’s in the update, you ask? Aside from the massive new area, the Orb Valis? A place that’s like, double, maybe triple the size of the Plains of Eidolon and is also a lot taller and deeper? Firstly there’s the brand new K-Drive. Because why the hell would you want to fly across the Orb Valis when you can fricking hoverboard across it? While grinding along… [Continue Reading]

Yesva Nova

I’ve never really liked Nova. She’s the one single Warframe who was designed by the community, and it shows. She’s insanely strong in a multitude of ways, fulfilling multiple niches and just generally being really, really good. Nova is also a very popular frame, an attractive frame and one that has received a huge amount of Tennogen cosmetics. But I really just don’t like her. It’s not even because she gets in the way of Volt and my other favourite Warframes. Volt’s not the fastest Warframe, Nova is because she can instantly teleport. Ivara’s one of the better Warframes for… [Continue Reading]
