Warframe (PS4) |OT| - A New Era in the Plains

K finally got all wisp parts. I can't believe the fight wasn't tweaked at all before release. Insta death lazers, getting knocked off the trip wires, six sentients spawning during the cutscenes insta killing you etc. I really miss warframe quests. Speaking of story, why is natah rambling and taking up 3/4 of the screen while we're running there? I can't stop and listen and it's hard to see what's going on.

Also got weird camera issues, like it was locked in RE4 camera mode and VERY slow, or weapon switching bugs (got this on excal and valkyr) where it says I'm unarmed but clearly in melee pose yet holding my side arm and can't attack or use my powers. The only way to reset these bugs is to die or jump off the side til it fixes itself.

Now to farm another ~900 hexeon.

We're off to a strong start on Hostile Mergers! We're currently #1 on the leaderboards for Storm Clans by a nice margin. It wasn't really the goal originally, but I actually think we could win and that it would be cool if we did. I stacked the clan roster leading up to the event, and thus far folks are getting it done. Probably a quarter of the clan has banked a 4K+ score, and I think a good squad could very realistically get to 10K. If you think you're capable of running up a high score, and you probably need the hex anyway, please go for it.

As it stands, we already have the bronze trophy and are about 2/3 of the way to gold.

I'm in no rush to do mine really. Tried the mode in the small window of the update launching and the event going live. It's wacky but sorta ok

Maybe i'll wait to the last day to do it. You know, just to annoy you a bit ;)

Nice! Will try to get on asap but might be the weekend.

Is it hard? What kind of frame is best?

I wouldn't say it's hard, but the targets get pretty fast and tanky around 5-6k. I'm convinced I could get anybody to 6K or so, and am happy to do that in groups (need hex for next dojo research anyway).

Nova is pretty key, Khora can stun lock the suicide bomber, and squads should bring as much Magus Lockdown as possible.We were bringing frost to bubble the defense objective, but I'm less and less convinced on the importance of that, as the only enemy that seems to matter is the runner, and it's best to run out and track him down by sound. Whatever map you get, you'll probably start to recognize patterns of where they're coming from, so run out, lock em down and kill them asap.

Sorry about your run today fellas. Very frustrating and not something I've seen even on my toughest runs.

Let's get you squared away with something in the 7K range as soon as possible. I'm happy to help again.
No worries, mate. Will be on at the weekend again so can try then. That was quite a moment when I saw the 'Mission Failed' screen though :O.

I wonder if it's better to spec to damage that thing rather than equipping general AOE damage weapon. I don't think I was hurting it much...

Disruption is actually a lot of fun. I really need to up my standings with the Solaris to make a kit gun though.

I dabbled in Warframe on PC and PS but didn't realise the game had clans. Is this only available after a certain level?
You can join a clan from any level. You'll need a few resources to build the 'key' but you can get them early on. With a clan event on now it'd be up to frizby if we have room right away, but worst case scenario it'd be a week and a half. Any sort of a wait to get in is pretty unusual tbh. Just a timing thing at the moment

- edit - actually i think the rosters might be locked with the event on. I'm sure Frizby will clarify

- edit edit - can't bloody type

Yeah, we're locked down until either the event ends or one of the 20+ people I recently recruited for the event leaves us. We're currently 100/100 and most additions have been pretty great.

I think we've settled into 3rd on the leaderboard, which is pretty good. I could see us slipping to 4th or 5th, and I don't see us catching 1st or 2nd. I've helped a ton of people do their runs and am probably ready to move on to some Plague Star for free formas. If you haven't gotten an endurance score, please do. It really doesn't take long and gives 2 limited time guns with slots and potatos.

We have 2 gold event trophies in the main hall that need all of the Hexenon you can spare. Contribute directly to the trophy or donate via the treasury.

I'm back. Took some time off but now I'm back. And I come back, check the wiki and see this damn thing and freak out. Then I find out it's currently China Exclusive.



But there's hope, because Umbra himself was once exclusive to the East. Has there been any word on us getting this anytime in the future? Because I need it. And that damn noggle.

Without trying to spoil too much I'd suggest getting access to your personal quarters, which will become available after completing the chains of Harrow quest. Your personal quarters will open up a questline. Do that, and you may find the answer to your question

Noggle was exclusive to the statue, we'll never get that. I'd say there's a decent chance of getting the helm. As far as I'm aware, China doesn't produce any original assets besides some reskins. They just go with whatever DE makes, and as Excal Umbra shows, they're willing to put it out any time regardless of what DE's schedule is becuse China(frame) don't care.

We need to talk about Plague Star because these are my findings:

Forma are 3k reputation.

A 4 eidolon run gets you 2k reputation.

However, you can do 4 infested/4 eidolon and that gives you 3k reputation. The problem is, 4 infested will be slow as hell unless you have a very, very optimised group. Yesterday I stumbled into a rank 27 and 26 doing the event and joined them... it really opened my eyes, we were doing 4/4 runs in a breeze. The comp was:

Titania
Rhino
Oberon

And it goes like this: Oberon is jacked up on power strength and range and brings the ignis, his job is to blanket the area with the grass to speed up the infestation removal while applying generous doses of ignis wraith. Titania is built for dex pixia and she is the boss killer. Rhino keeps roar up and stomps the boss to increase the window of invulnerability (this is mostly for the head that has the scythe because it's annoying to hit).

Frizby: the speed at which the bosses were beating the dust was almost comical.

I've suddenly found myself swimming in affinity boosters (19-hour from login, 3-day from Renown Pack XVI, 3-day from 550-day login pack), so I guess Hydron is my new home for the next week or so, lol.

Was always the case, and there are a bunch of different ways to kill them quickly. We used to use Ember to jump up and put rings of fire on the heads. If you want to put together an optimized group, that's a way to go.

But if you want to solo it, 3 speed runs for 2 forma is also a fine way to go and is the method I prefer.

Sure.

Also that Ember method... sounds fun, I'd like to see it!

I'm not even sure it still works, but it was cool. We got pretty good at bullet jumping up and placing the ring so it would hit all 3 heads as they opened up. Maybe I'll try it out again for old time's sake.

If folks are killing the hemocytes, be sure to drop your Hemocyte Cystoliths in the tiny trophies by dojo spawn. They have no other use.

So... my chat stopped working. Just loads endlessly. Everything else seems to work. Any solutions?

Scratch that, restarted my router (a few times) and now it's working
