Speaking of Kuva weapons, my third Lich dropped the Kuva Quartakk with innate radiation. I was hoping to really enjoy it since it has good crit and status, plus I prefer full auto rifles. But, I'm really not liking it. I don't know if I'm just not modding it properly or what, but it just feels under powered to me. The Kuva Tonkor just mows down enemies left and right and the Kuva Brakk I have can shred most enemies, but the Quartakk just isn't doing it for me. Should I maybe try going for a different status proc next time?

Yeah I'm not sure how you're not shredding up stuff with the Quartakk even when using the auto fire. With the burst fire it just wrecks. I have a badly rolled Impact one and it's still tearing up content.

What are and how do you do Finishers? I see there's a challenge for it on Nightwave but I'm not sure I've seen that yet?

I finally got to the Void last night and got the last few mats I still needed to build the last piece of the Rhino warframe... Ended up rushing both the last piece and the overall blueprint cause I didn't want to wait 3 days... Yay new toy to play with!

Same here. I have Primes for Atlas, Mesa, Saryn, Chroma and Zephyr waiting to be claimed. I also built my first Zaws and Kitgun



I'm thinking I should have gone with the Peye grip on the Nikana as it's noticeably slower (just a tad!) than the Skiajati but didn't want to use it again after building a Ooltha sword for my Rhino :) Not that there was anything wrong with it, I just wanted a different look... which may have not been the best way to go about building a Zaw lol

You're just getting a jump on the real late game of warframe. Fashionframe is what it's all about in the end.

I just started playing a few days ago so I'm still pretty early on (working on the Saturn junction) but I'd love an invite to the clan while I catch up!
In game name is Herrsch

You're at the Saturn junction and you started playing a few days ago? I started playing a couple of weeks ago and I'm not even there... Damn.... I need to step up my game! haha

Since there's some fresh players in the thread I guess today is a good day to talk about Baro Ki'Teer and what he is!

Baro is this weirdo trader who shows up every other Friday. He sells things in a combination of Credits and his own special currency, Ducats. You get ducats by selling him your extra, unwanted Prime components that you've picked up in missions. Generally speaking, common (bronze) components are worth 15 Ducats, uncommons (silver) are 45-60, and rares are 100. Most of what Baro has is unique or had been featured in long-passed events. He appears Friday morning at 9 Eastern and hangs around for 48 hours. Each week generally has a new stockpile of things, but he will rotate through his inventory so nothing is truly gone forever.

There are two must buys this week if you can afford them. He has four rare mods that are commonly referred to as the Electric Dual Stat mods. They're extremely efficient mods for the benefits they give and are essential for several builds reaching their full potential. Jolt and Voltaic Strike are currently available only through Baro; Shell Shock and High Voltage can be farmed. Although it is much easier to buy them all from Baro, at 300 Ducats and 150k credits each that might be a high price.

Ah so he's Xur... Got it! (lol)

Where is he? Physically I mean

I think my next level of Nightwave is giving me Ducats but I can't remember how much and not sure I'll have enough missions available to level up. I'll have to look at that in game later.

He gets a special icon on the navigation plane if you're zoomed all the way out to see all the planets. He's also in the activity tab on the top right and he sends an inbox message about where he is when he spawns. This week he's in the Mercury relay, just in front of the Hydroid statue. You can't miss him because he'll have a cluster of other players standing around.

That nightwave is 200 ducats. When you run out of missions to do it'll give you up to 2 more from previous weeks that you've missed (or it should, at least). If you're around later we can grind some prime crap along with the money for baro.

Thanks... I can't remember which exactly but I know I already have a few Prime stuff that I got (I'm guessing) from relics... Considering how early I am still in the game... Do you think it would be worth it for me to vendor all that for Ducats since I probably won't need them for a while or should I still hang on to them?

Hang on to one of each*, then decide whether to sell spares for Ducats (this is done in the relay, not from the inventory screen), or trade them for platinum with other players.

* (some weapons need two of some components; e.g. the Kronen Prime needs two blades and two handles, since it's a dual wield weapon. Warframes always need exactly one each of the blueprint, chassis, systems and neuroptics).

To help you decide whether to sell for Ducats or trade for plat, here's a REALLY useful Ducat-per-Platinum calculator:
Parts closer to the top (higher ducat / platinum ratio) should be sold for ducats; parts closer to the bottom should be traded for platinum.

To trade them for platinum (or, alternatively, to buy parts you want and can't be bothered to farm) you need to use the Warframe market (DE in their infinite wisdom decided not to implement an auction house for the game):
I would personally recommend trying to put together a Mesa and / or Chroma Prime; they're two of the easiest Primes to get all the parts for (the regular versions of each are actually harder to farm than the Primes), and the Prime looks are IMHO considerably better than the regular looks. You only need Mastery Rank 2 for Mesa Prime, too (Chroma Prime is 6).

Cool thanks

I actually did the whole Chroma quest last night (to get the regular blueprint).

I also started getting missions where you get multiple types... Like it starts as a defense mission and then turns into a control or whatever the names are... Neat

Chroma is one of the biggest teases in the game, right next to Harrow. They give all of its blueprints, like, right at the start, almost before you even know what blueprints are, and you're like "oh, neat, all the blueprints, I guess I'm getting it soon".

Then one of the blueprints needs a fucking Saryn's Systems.

Saryn parts blueprints randomly drop from the boss of Sedna of all places. The boss itself requires that you accrue arena points first, every time you want to fight her. Suffice to say I'm 600+ hours in and I still haven't bothered to make regular Chroma. :P

it's sort of wild to me how easy it is to get primes over their normal counterparts

The weirder thing to think about is that Chroma came out before Kela got her rework. She used to basically just be a heavy gunner with a few different attacks, but it was something you could power through and get the systems easily for.

Hahah, yeah, but really, that's kind of my point! You get a blueprint (Chroma) super early on, which requires something (Saryn's Systems) that drops from a boss (Kela de Thaym) from a place (Sedna) you haven't heard of and won't get to visit for a looong time. Sedna and Eris are the furthest solar system bodies in the game, beyond even Pluto!

That actually makes more sense to me than having one of the four Warframes themed after the basic elements of the game be 100x harder to get than the other three (and therefore make Chroma so much harder to build) for absolutely no discernible reason. Still weird if she was the boss of Sedna, but the whole arena points stuff is just rubbing salt in the wound.

If anyone wants a taxi to kill a Silver Grove Specter for the nightwave weekly, PM me in the following hour or so, I have an apothic ready.
Incidentally, anyone knows if you can taxi others if these others haven't completed the Silver Grove quest?

Heads up! There's an alert with an Orokin Reactor or Orokin Catalyst as a reward on Cinxia, Ceres, right now. If anyone needs a taxi there I'm in-game right now.

Bit late but for future reference...

If you really want to 'maximize' value get a Nekros/Khora/etc and carve them up.
Descrate does work, but you can't carve the specters up so it's only one additional chance at loot. Khora's good but only a 45% chance at an extra drop.

I have neither; I do have Hydroid with pilfering swarm, but I've read conflicting reports on whether it works on specters or not.
Hydroid is probably the best frame to use as he can get a guaranteed extra drop. The tricky bit is his tentacles have to make the kill (it should be just if they're touching them, but specters are bugged or have some special rule attached to them) so make sure the rest of the team aren't trigger happy.

Best of course would be both a hydroid/khora and a nekros or two since they stack again.

Thanks for the explanation, which also explains the conflicting reports about it. Something to keep in mind for the next time. :)

Multiple Nekros would be redundant, wouldn't it?
