While I'm having a lot of fun with Inaros, I had to give up on daggers, at least for now. They feel super weak when you aren't throwing pocket sand at everything and since I'm leveling them still they don't really cut it on content I actually need to do. Maybe once I have that crazy mod that like doubles sneak attack damage or w/e I'll come back to them. For now I guess it's Galatine again.
Until Melee 3.0, weapons with range are King. The sole exception is daggers once you've got the covert lethality mod. You one hit anything you can do a finisher on. It's considerably more than double damage. I think you can pick up the mod as a reward for spy missions, so you could get it while grinding for Ivara who also drops in spy missions.

Good to know. I did want to try and get that mod, but had no idea where it came from. Galatine is really nice, I was just looking to mix it up more. So far it's the only great weapon that I've really liked.

Would folks here have any other fun/interesting melee weapons to build or try. Also would take suggestions on secondaries, which is by far my least used weapon slot.

Like Juraash has discovered, the Galatine is quite good. I really liked it when I first got it, and I love all of its stances. There's also the Guandao (from the Tenno lab in the dojo) which available at low MR, making it an easy recommend. The Orthos Prime, Redeemer/ the other gunblade, Mios, Atterax, and Jat Kittag round out some of the better (easily obtainable) melee weapons. If you can deal with the lack of range, The Venka, Destreza, and Nikanas are fun weapons (claws, a rapier, katanas). I'd also recommend trying out a sword and shield as well just to see if you like them. If you like a weapon that's usually enough reason to keep using it.

Range is only a problem because of the disparity between weapons. Reach is a +% mod so short weapons shat short but long weapons get longer. A polearm can do more or less the same damage and hit multiple enemies, while a sword has nothing going for it. In a game like Warframe this makes the longer melee weapons far better because you can kill a lot of enemies in a single swing, or you could use a single sword and kill one. Dual daggers, Machetes, sparring and fist weapons are largely garbage because they don't make up for their lack of range.

Some melee stances have additional effects that make them better such as Cyclone Kraken giving a damage multiplier, but even then this info isn't communicated in game.

Oh, there are also Zaws, which end up the best weapon of most of their categories if you build them right. But those take some time to grind through Cetus and they still have the same problems of range.

I am absolutely loving Gram with Tempo Royale, I also picked up and Orthos to use with weeping something, looks super cool.

I've unlocked Mars and also unlocking most of Mercury. Just built my Archwing (it's alright, gotta try it some more). But now I've maxed out my starter frame, Volt. Should I go farm for a new frame? Kinda lost on where to go now. Should I use the item that doubles mod slots or wait for something else to use it? I feel like I don't even know where to get it or if farming it would be a pain or not.

I'd say farming for a new frame is a good idea. The item that doubles your capacity - an Orokin Reactor - is uncommon enough that I'd suggest saving it for a frame that you really like or are going to use alot. You'll get more but slowly and you can use them on warframes, sentinels, pets, and archwings so you may wish to save it.

The bosses of all planets except Mercury drop Warframe pieces (Neuroptics, Chassis and Systems) and systems are purchasable from the market. Other warframes drop from the open world bounties, or are purchasable from the clan dojo. When you get to the assassinate mission of a planet, farm the boss for warframe parts before you move on unless you feel like you'd rather come back to it.

Any tips on what alerts are best for the app? I just turned it on and my phone went ham. I should probably disable credits alert since almost every alert gives that.

Also, 50 hours in, the game really starts to roll the more knowledge I have. Actually upgrading (noob) mods, knowing how to farm for materials. Wanting something, setting it as a goal and slowly inching closer and closer towards that goal. Feels good man.

I am considering getting the 170 platinum from the eShop just for the slots though. I don't see any incoming plat anytime soon and I'm running out of mk1 gear to sell off to save slots (and I don't want to stop mastery progression).

According to the devstream there's a bug from 2008 (Same code as Dark Sector) that adds a filter to the controller code adding 100ms of lag. It exists in all platforms when using the controller.

I'm very glad they found the problem.

Steve was working on it until midnight last night when he tweeted this. People can love the game or hate the game but no one can deny this guys passion on making video games and his love for his warframe baby...

that controller code update is very welcome. i tend to just snap the analog sticks and then aim/strafe for more precise shots. this looks like we’ll be able to finesse the movements.

Okay the hacking mastery rank up sucks on switch.

Mainly the one with rotate and match the lines. I have to hold the direction then whole holding rotate. I am not good at this and failed twice already with having to wait 24 hours lol...

(Also mobile typing freaking sucks on this forum. Delete doesn't get rid of entire word if wrong word happened. Select acts as select all too).

You can use ciphers during that test to instantly bypass a terminal

You can practice the test in relay before you actually take the test. Two separate buttons controls the spin in clockwise and counter clockwise direction.

Pro Tip for Corpus console:
  1. spin outside tiles to snap, start with 3 prong tile first.
  2. mad spin center tile.

Yea I passed it easily on PC so this is embarrassing lol. I don't even know what was happening when I started it in PC heh...

How many ciphers can you hold? I got 24 hours till next try.

I've tried and tried, but I can't. I find Warframe on switch unplayable. I just cannot aim to save my life. At least it made me interested in the game again and redownloaded it on PC. I don't know what it is with this game, I can play 30fps console shooters like Destiny fine but Warframe has this crazy input lag for me making it impossible to aim anything but awkwardly going for center mass.

I rarely use controllers for anything shooting but some odd reason my accuracy is way higher on the switch.

I did turn on gyro aiming assist lol..it really helps for the small precise movements.

I also find it much easier to aim on switch due to gyro. When I play on PS4 I find myself moving the controller trying to gyro-aim :p I'd love if they added it to PS4.

Also, I just wanted to say this game is fucking awesome.
This has to be one of the most satisfying 3rd person shooters I've played. It's super fast but super relaxing at the same time. Cutting all those enemies in half or destroying their faces with a shotgun never gets old.

Alrighty Nintenno, today's the big day! We've got just about everything done to the point that I've upgraded the clan to Storm, which means we can hold 100 people. If you've been patiently playing along while we worked on this, I thank you very much and ask that you PM me you IGN exactly as it appears in game. I'll get you added as quick as I can, although if you're like me right now Smash has totally absorbed all of your Switch's battery life.

Note you'll also have to build a clan key in the foundry once you've accepted the invite (or if you had a PC account with a clan, you don't actually need to build a key). When that's done you can find the dojo in the lower left section of the solar system map. But you should be able to participate in clan chat right away and show up in the clan roster for easy inviting.

Neato. Thanks for braving all that work (and undoubtedly also organisational headaches).


Bonus newb PSA: Not sure whether it has been mentioned (era has been rather screwy with me ever since the "upgrade"), but there's a bunch of christmas themed stuff on the shop, and some of it is even available for 1 credit apiece. No need for Plat. Obviously there's also a generous helping of premium currency only offerings as well, so keep on your toes. Hella weird to have a snowman in your cockpit, but eh, whatever it takes to mix things up a bit.


OBdiary: Cripes, what the fuck was up with that relay fight off Mars. Super easy mode. Press the button to begin the engagement, take out your rifle, pewpew the enemy in the head, win. No need to move at all. The bugger just stands there and eats your shots, occasionally strafing to the side or kneeling down to deliver some minimally dangerous kunai. All previous fights were at least somewhat engaging. Not so this time. I take it this is from back when Mars was the starting point of the campaign (IIRC)?

I kinda wanna have a Dethcube "Mini Moose" skin. Along with other Invader Zim themed stuff.

Ah I see. That's no problem then. I'll just keep breeding until I get one I don't have :)
You can also trade for genetic imprints, and I'd recommend getting the imprints of your dog (you can only get 2) before you bin it send it to the Lotus. This means you can chose what breed you get rahter than having to RNG them all.

I wonder where she keeps all the unwanted pets. She must be turning them into burgers.

The Hek. MR4 locked, but works built for straight damage. There's also a Steel Meridian augment for it that is nice to have (adds multishot and a syndicate proc that does a bit of damage and heals you)

Just because I've been seeing this a lot in y'all's messages to me, there's plenty of space in the clan. Don't be shy about it, and it's not a bother either!



Also here's a quick map of the place featuring deluxe skin nidus (best deluxe skin in the game at the moment). We centralized everything so that it's easy to find what you need, and I put up the decorations around the doors to try and make it easier to identify which room is which at a glance. There's also a teleporter in the center of the main chamber in case you're feeling extra lazy.

Hahaha, oh man, the RNG in this game is stupid sometimes. Yesterday I chose to do the Survival mission for the breeding quest again because I'm a masochist or something, and this time it was a complete cakewalk and I entered the dropship with a very comfortable 30% and a survival marker still on the map - and that was after walking to the exit while scrounging for resources. Basically, I could have played this for a whole lot longer. ...maybe the recent hotfix tweaked the mission. Still, what a stark contrast to the initial attempts.

Related: Sorry Eintopf , I was just about to log when you invited me yesterday. It was 2 am in the morning and I should have been asleep long ago, so I just dropped a line in the dojo chat and went offline. Hope I didn't offend. Thanks again for the invite. :)


Question: can I activate another quest while my egg is hatching, or am I now locked into the quest until my ugly space dog gets born? It takes two freaking days for that, dammit. And Ordis isn't talking about anything else. Arrrrrgh.


Also, finally made my way to the void to grab those freaking decaying crystals without hanging onto the coattails of someone else. Yuss.

I thought that was going to be easy. Ended up doing it with 2 seconds to spare. It's finding the bloody things that loses you time. Do radar mods work there?
Yeah it should, I managed to complete it at Simaris’s training but for the real test I failed lmao. I did even bring a squad energy restore item. Will try again at Ember rank 20. Wave 1 is also the hardest one.

Edit : there, Ember 30, went really fast at the test, no way I’ll fail this time.

At MR2 you'll likely find the costs of making things a bit expensive. Also, all dojo weapons are MR locked, so you'll likely want to come back later when you've ranked up a bit. There are a couple weapons available to you now, but chances are you have other gear to level at the moment. Every of Mastery rank will unlock new weapons from the labs, so you can come back every so often.

However, you can make the 4 warframes from the Tenno lab (Volt, Nezha, Banshee, Wukong) which aren't MR locked. The Tenno lab also has some upgrade segments which help you with Pets and the archwing launcher segment, although I believe they are MR locked.
