So I've been using Excalibur since that's what I picked to start. It's awesome and feels really strong.

I linked my twitch and got the frost frame. Umm... I don't get his power set. I only have the first power but it feels like it's a single target hitscan? I'm not sure yet on this frame but it doesn't feel as good.
Frost is a slower, tankier frame and among the most popular for defense missions because he pretty much trivializes them up until late game and is still powerful afterwards. His 1 is mostly used to destroy globes from his 3rd ability.

So I started playing this last week and felt extremely confused. Last night I hopped in and tried the plains content, and spent about 3 hours just doing a lot of different stuff, figuring out the mod infusion system/other systems, and am having a LOT of fun with this.

One thing though: when should I expect to start getting other warframes or getting the materials necessary to make them? I know you get platinum from trading with other players, but I just don't see the loop to earning stuff to make warframes at all, other than selling them once they hit level 30? I read something about getting the blueprints from grinding planet bosses I think? The only boss I've beaten is Captain Vor, so I assume if I just did that over and over eventually I would get that encounter's set of blueprints. It's a lot to jump into.

Really, I just want to know if I should just truck through the campaign as the ninja warframe or take time to get other frames before advancing to different planets.

Start trucking through the star chart, most planet bosses drop frame parts. You can get Rhino's parts from the Venus boss, but you'll need to go a bit further for the resources to craft them. Along the way you'll also unlock quests that open up more warframes and other things.

Captain Vor doesn't drop any warframe blueprints, but he drops the blueprint and parts for a pretty good pistol for starting out. You can probably use your first frame all the way through the star chart, but as you clear out planets and face bosses, you'll passively collect materials, and killing most bosses will give you the blueprints you need to build different warframes, which you can level up for mastery and either sell or keep depending if you like them.

It's really up to you if you want to try other frames, if you're having fun with your first one, then you can just keep using that if you like. Later planets have missions where you can level a frame from 0-30 in about 40 minutes, so you don't need to go out of your way for mastery at this point.

If you're talking about the twitch drops, those are regular Latrons (unless it says Latron Prime o__O), and once you built one for mastery (and I think it might be a component for another weapon?) then sell the excess for credits.
Okay, I have no idea how I missed that they were regular latrons... Dylexlia must have gone into overdrive. Thanks for pointing that out to me!

Oh they are normal?

If so then master one and either keep another one or use the mastered one so you can make the Tiberon.


Sell the rest for credits (even though its still not worth it :/)

Looks like the last hotfix reverted the change where operator mode deactivated Loki's cloak. Shame, I really loved being able to cancel and recast it for stealth-kill spy runs.

Wow watching twitch streams for like 10 minutes gave me 10 free things and warframe components? Huh. That's actually a really clever way to incentivize checking out community events/streams and such.

Hopped back in after a year to gt in on the Plains of Eidolon launch to find the game ever-improving as always (Oberon getting buffed to not be useless is pretty nice, too). Hit the plains to pick up a few ores/gems and found myself swallowed up by cave diving, fishing, random missions - all way more fun and engaging than I expected. Definitely sold me on the expansion.

That said, I'm still unaffiliated, and with as much time as I've put into the game so far, I should change that. Would it be possible to get an invite to the clan?

DON'T trade your Brilliant Shards to Maroo for endo. It is possible to do this right now and it auto-flags your account as using third party programs and will auto-ban you for an EULA violation.

There is some crazy bug in their system right now.

Worse than this is people telling other players to go trade them in for endo. I would have thought our community was better than that.

so if free roam environments are going to be an ongoing thing, they really need to add some relevant graphics options like draw distance, LOD and foliage detail

I don't think anyone is going to be actually perma'd because of this, a bug in their ding dang database, but will definitely not be sorted out this weekend.

Edit:
My biggest trade to date :)
Hot damn Jellie!

for a moment there i was like "why would you buy that and if its really that rare" then i realized.

Congrats on that haul man
Thanks. Best thing is it cost me 40p and one roll (900 kuva).
So I should not have sold all the Latron bp for credits? :(
Nothing else you can do except sell them or build.

As long as you leveled one for mastery and either kept a spare or use the leveled one to make the Tiberon you should be fine selling them for credits.

Did the solo Interception mission for that riven i had gotten with my non prime Hydroid (my Rhino Prime, Titania and Ivara are not prepared at this time).

It was on Xini

Results

Me-100%
Them- 99%

I'll take it LOLOL

got an Amprex Riven for my troubles but any thoughts (re-roll or not)





I'm stuck on the howling egg mission. It has all the items checked but where it wants me to go requires a archwing. Did I mess up or do I just follow the other missions for a while?
Can you post a screen shot of what's happening?

Apologies since i had done these quests before the junction stuff appeared so i'm trying to get some bearing.

Took me 9 rolls, but I finally got crit damage, crit chance, and raw damage on my Amprex riven, feels good.

We are cracking down on this teralyst hunting meta. Did 5 kills in one night easy, and we almost got 6 but had one session were spawns screwed us on the lures. Dare I say 7 is possible?

That's pretty good. At the very least it's worth something. You could keep rolling tho if you have the kuva.

I don't know if you stuck around or not. I figured it out. I had to talk to the old guy in Cetus. I did his missions and it opened up the pathway for me. Crazy thing was there was no marker I just lucked into it.

^ We could start building a random room in the Dojo and have people contribute resources, then destroy the room so everything will go into the clan vault, if people wanted.

Other than that, there's a credit donation in the Zeta room of our Dojo, but, eh.
