  25. >I JUST STARTED PLAYING THE TUTORIAL AND IT'S GIVING ME 3 FRAMES ?
  26.  
  27. Excalibur is a solid frame with strong scaling due to Exalted Blade and Radial Blind being a decent CC ability.
  28. Is usually the most picked by beginners, is also the posterboy for Warframe.
  29.  
  30. Mag is a decent pick, before she was only useful against shields, but her tools have been slightly updated and she can
  31. provide good single-target damage against all factions with Magnetize. The rest of her kit centers around buffing allies'
  32. shields and debuffing enemies.
  33.  
  34. Volt is good for going fast and defending objectives, his damage isn't the best as he is more of an utility frame than
  35. anything else. His shield buffs ally damage and his Discharge, when properly built out, can wipe whole tiles of
  36. trashmobs.
  37.  
  38.  
  39. >WHAT WEAPONS SHOULD I USE ?
  40.  
  41. Bows are mostly useless in this game.
  42.  
  43. Most Shotguns are viable.
  44.  
  45. Some Snipers are pretty good.
  46.  
  47. Full auto and AOE weapons will be your bread and butter even vs high levels, useful pretty much everywhere. Stick
  48. to them if you want a nice and relaxing grind experience.
  49.  
  50. Melee is always stronger than ranged weapons because of the mods melees have available.
  51.  
  52.  
  53. >I GOT 50 PLAT. WHAT DO I BUY ?
  54.  
  55. NEVER use your starter plat for capes, shitty armor pieces, kubrows (god forbid), icons or other useless shit. That cape
  56. isn't worth it. Use your starter plat on a frame slot and 4 weapon slots this will allow you to have 3 warframe slots and
  57. 12 weapon slots. In the end the only thing preventing you from actually getting more frames/weapons are the slots which
  58. can only be acquired via plat.
  59.  
  60. >I JUST STARTED PLAYING, WHAT FRAME SHOULD I GO FOR ?
  61.  
  62. Rhino is one of the earliest frames you can get, due to his drops being from the boss of Venus. With Iron Skin he can
  63. survive a lot of shit until high levels.
  64.  
  65. After that if you prefer to melee more you can pick Valkyr off Jupiter's first boss, Alad V. Unlike Rhino she has high base
  66. armor to mitigate damage and Hysteria makes her quite tanky. Neither of these frames are good for soloing defenses and similar.
  67.  
  68. If you like avoiding damage rather than just taking it up the ass then there are Nova and Loki, off Europa and Neptune
  69. bosses. Nova can slow down enemies to a crawl and make them take double dmg and Loki can be invisible or completely disarm enemies.
  70.  
  71. >I LIKE BEING A LONE WOLF, BUT I CAN'T DO THESE MISSIONS ALONE.
  72.  
  73. There is absolutely no reason not to play public if you just started. With the way affinity (that's exp) sharing works it's
  74. best to play with 4 people as much as possible than trying to steamroll through it alone because you'll level up your shit
  75. faster. The only exception is MAYBE Spy missions because pubs can be pretty fucking retarded there.
  76.  
  77. >WHERE DO I GET ALL THE MODS FOR MY WARFRAME/WEAPON BUILDS ?
  78.  
  79. http://warframe.wikia.com/ is your best friend. No reason not to use it, it has everything from mod
  80. drops to frame drop locations. Check there also for more information and scaling of frames abilities.
  81.  
  82. >I JUST GOT SOME VOID RELICS, WHAT DO I DO WITH THEM ?
  83.  
  84. You use void relics to acquire rewards at the end of Void Fissure missions.
  85. Void Fissures are how you get the good stuff (prime warframes, weapons, etc).
  86. There are 4 relic tiers (eras) and each tier has a few relics, each with their own rewards.
  87. To increase the chance of getting what you want you can "refine" these void relics with "void traces", boosting
  88. the % to get good stuff. If you complete a Void Fissure mission in a full squad with 3 other people and you all have
  89. relics equipped at the end you get to choose from 4 different rewards.
  90. NO void relic = NO rewards, even if other people equip them.
  91.  
  92. >HOW DO I GET VOID TRACES ?
  93.  
  94. Run Void Fissure missions, even if you don't have a relic equipped you can still farm traces.
  95. Do this in solo mode or randoms will bitch at you for lowering their odds of getting rare parts.
  96. The amount of Void Traces is also capped to 100 + (Mastery Rank × 50).
  97.  
  98. >WHAT ARE THE DEFENSE/SURVIVAL/INTERCEPTION/EXCAVATION ROTATIONS ?
  99.  
  100. The "rotations" are your rewards from doing defense/survival/interception/excavation missions past a certain point.
  101.  
  102. Rotation A:
  103. 5 and 10 mins of survival
  104. 5 and 10 waves of defense
  105. 1st and 2nd successful excavations
  106. 1st and 2nd rounds of interception
  107. Rotation B:
  108. 15 mins of survival
  109. 15 waves of defense
  110. 3rd successful excavation
  111. 3rd round of interception
  112. Rotation C:
  113. 20 mins of survival
  114. 20 waves of defense
  115. 4th successful excavation
  116. 4th round of interception
  117.  
  118. The cycle goes 'AABC', after C you return to A and it starts over.
  119.  
  120. You do not lose rewards from earlier rotations for continuing on, they add up.
  121. However, if you fail the mission, you lose everything, so don't try to stay longer than you're comfortable.
  122.  
  123. You can probably guess what makes the game have such tedious grinds at this point. All rotation rewards are clustered
  124. with useless crap and such low drop chances that DE hopes it will force you into just buying it off the market with plat.
  125. Note you can still get lucky but mostly you should get ready to grind more.
  126.  
  127. >WHAT ARE THESE "VAULT RUNS" ?
  128.  
  129. Vault runs refer to running Orokin Derelict missions and searching for the vault which can contain extremely useful mods.
  130. These mods are the bread and butter to every good build and you'd want to farm them as soon as possible once you unlock
  131. Dragon Key blueprints from Clan Dojo research. Do note that you need 10 Void Traces to craft each Dragon Key which
  132. you'll use to unlock the vault. There are 4 different types of key; the correct key to open the vault is randomized.
  133. You should always equip all 4 keys at once to make sure you can open the vault every run.
  134.  
  135. >WHAT THE FUCK IS WITH THIS "FUSING" SHIT ?
  136.  
  137. Fusing mods is how you "level up" weapons, frames and shit. Even if you level up a weapon its damage doesn't actually
  138. increase, but you get additional mod capacity so that you can fit an extra rank of Serration or whatever into it.
  139. To level up mods you use Endo. Endo can drop from enemies and also mission rewards. Endo fusion cost increases per level
  140. and depending on the rarity of the mod you're fusing; fusing also has a credits cost which increases similarly.
  141.  
  142. It's important to level certain basic mods to max as fast as you can; these include mods that directly increase damage
  143. (Serration, Hornet Strike, Point Blank, and Pressure Point) and mods that increase Multishot (Split Chamber, Hell's
  144. Chamber, Barrel Diffusion, and Lethal Torrent). These mods are mandatory on every build because they provide the biggest
  145. damage benefits.
  146.  
  147. >TRANSMUTATION ?
  148.  
  149. Useless. Don't bother with it unless you have 90 million credits and over 500 duplicate rare mods to waste.
  150.  
  151. >SELLING MODS ?
  152.  
  153. While not worth a whole lot, selling certain mods (like the sentinel mods you will get thousands of) can
  154. help boost your credit count. You can also dissolve them into Endo, which is usually the better choice
  155. since it's harder to get when you're starting out.
  156.  
  157. >SO I JUST GOT A VALKYR AND NOVA ALONG WITH MY STARTER FRAME, BUT I CAN'T GET ANYTHING ELSE THANKS TO NO PLAT ? THAT'S BULLSHIT.
  158.  
  159. Welcome to grindframe. At this point you probably joined some random clan that has its own dojo and built their key so
  160. now you can start trading. The trade here is user-controlled and prices may vary between regions and time of day. Do
  161. vault runs in the derelict with other people for the corrupted mods; the good ones (overextended, narrow minded, blind
  162. rage, fleeting expertise, heavy caliber) can easily sell for at least 1 frame slot worth of plat.
  163. Or if you are looking for bigger game you can try farming Void Relics, then opening them for Prime parts and selling sets.
  164.  
  165. https://warframe.market/ bookmark this shit and use it often
  166.  
  167. Keep in mind that 1 plat = 500 credits for tax so if you want to sell a Prime set for 100 plat you'll need 50000 credits.
  168. Other than that you can sell Arcanes that you buy from open world NPCs for plat too. And again regions and different times of day might
  169. change plat prices so keep an eye on the trade chat.
  170.  
  171.  
  172. >NOW THAT I HAVE A GOOD FRAME AND SOME GOOD MODS WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE ?
  173.  
  174. Work on ranking up your rare mods, getting good weapons and formas because you will need those if you don't want to get
  175. carried anymore.
  176. Finish all the missions on the star map. Do nightmare missions for shred, lethal torrent and other mods.
  177. Get more weapons for 10o points to increase your mastery rank.
  178.  
  179. >FUCK THIS GRIND, I'LL JUST BUY THE FRAME/WEAPON OFF THE MARKET.
  180.  
  181. NEVER buy weapons or frames off the market. They are piss easy to get normally and it would be cheaper to: rush all parts, buy a
  182. slot AND a potato for it.
  183. Market prices are retardedly high and never worth spending any plat on it. ESPECIALLY resources since you can just grind them out
  184. in a good squad.
  185.  
  186.  
  187. ==================
  188. == 2. Warframes ==
  189. ==================
  190.  
  191. Every warframe has 2 uses: dealing damage or being utility (or support if you will) some of them can be a hybrid of both or a bad version of all of them.
  192. Note that all builds except for select few will require you to have over 100% power efficiency if using blind rage or 175%( which is the cap for efficiency) without.
  193. On toggleable abilities the total energy drain after the efficiency scales with your duration, the lower your duration the faster the energy train will tick and the higher it is the slower it will drain your energy.
  194. Balance between the 2 if you plan on using toggleable abilities.
  195.  
  196. For a chart on how to minmax channeled abilities efficiency see:
  197. > https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/warframe/images/d/d5/DurationEfficiencyTable.png
  198.  
  199. Note: You always want to be in the light green areas of that chart (or at least as close as you can get)
  200. the balance of duration/efficiency you use to get there will depend on the frame/build you're using.
  201.  
  202. ===============================================================================================================================
  203.  
  204. Note: All the builds hinted below are their general uses. There are different more specific builds out there for different shit.
  205. Don't take this all around general guide as the final say in everything.
  206. For more detailed info (numbers, %s, etc) use the wiki.

  258.  
  259.  
  260.  
  261. == Ash
  262.  
  263. The ninja frame often considered the go to frame for maximum edge.
  264. Roles: Damage
  265.  
  266. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Ash
  267.  
  268. Passive: Bleed Procs dealt by Ash from any source are 25% deadlier and last 50% longer.
  269.  
  270. His 1 (Shuriken) throws out shuriken that deal damage and leaves a DoT.
  271. His 2 (Smoke Screen) makes him invisible for a while, while stunning nearby enemies. stealth damage multiplier on melee attacks.
  272. His 3 (Teleport) teleports him to his target and opens them up for a finisher. (can teleport to allies)
  273. His 4 (Bladestorm) marks enemies you aim on up to 3 times, each mark takes up energy. Press 4 again to send clones to
  274. damage marked enemies. You can use your Teleport on marked enemies to join your clones.
  275.  
  276. Frame that deals surprisingly good DPS with Bladestorm. Because of its Finisher damage type that ignores shields and armor,
  277. Bladestorm scales well into endgame, capable of one-shotting regular enemies, though it falls off against high-HP heavy units.
  278. Unfortunately, Ash has no use outside of Bladestorm.
  279.  
  280. There is one build:
  281.  
  282. -Smoke Screen/Bladestorm build that runs high duration, high strength, and high range - yes, it needs everything now.
  283. Because Bladestorm is no longer so easy to use, you actually need high duration for Smoke Screen to stay alive.
  284. Go Invis, mark enemies, Bladestorm them, watch as you get outdamaged by any other frame with a good gun.
  285. Mod your melee weapon with Fury/Quickening to speed up the animation and Body Count/Drifting Contact to increase damage.
  286. Other melee mods don’t carry over. Note that Bladestorm's Finisher damage type goes through shields and most importantly armor,
  287. making it better for augmented armor sorties.
  288.  
  289. Don't use Ash in Infested missions. Bladestorm can become animation-locked against Ancient Disruptors (which have 90% resistance
  290. to ability damage), and other units if an Ancient Healer is present. Not only will you become animation locked, Bladestorm's
  291. invincibility mechanic also means your allies won't be able to kill the Ancients.
  292.  
  293.  
  294. Augments:
  295. 1(Seeking Shuriken) your shuriken temporarily reduces enemy armor.
  296. 2(Smoke Shadow) your smoke screen also makes nearby allies invisible. (very small range)
  297. 3(Fatal Teleport) makes your teleport cast an instant finisher on the target with an additional damage multiplier, refunds half
  298. energy cost if target dies.
  299. 4(Rising Storm) increases melee combo counter when blade storm is used. (Augment made pointless by melee mod 'Body Count')
  300.  
  301. The other while not popular builds include:
  302.  
  303. The armor removal build which uses the seeking shuriken augment with ~160% power strength to completely remove armor of
  304. enemies. Only ever used in the simulacrum for weapon testing;
  305.  
  306. And the standard full duration build for invisibility with the optional augment if you are playing with fellow edgelords.
  307.  
  308. == Atlas
  309.  
  310. 'Brawler/Rock' warframe.
  311. Roles: Damage, CC
  312.  
  313. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Atlas
  314.  
  315. Passive: Can't be knocked down while on the ground.
  316. Rubble drops from petrified enemies and rumblers. It heals Atlas and also boosts armor(decays over time).
  317.  
  318. His 1 (Landslide) punches an enemy and nearby targets, press 1 again to combo into another one for reduced cost/more damage.
  319. Scales with certain melee mods equipped.
  320. His 2 (Tectonics) puts up a small rock wall in front of you, press 2 again to change it into a charging boulder.
  321. His 3 (Petrify) turns enemies to stone in a cone in front of you.
  322. His 4 (Rumblers) petrifies nearby enemies and summons 2 rock elementals to fight for you.
  323.  
  324. While he's mostly useless, he can be quite resilient as he has high armor and can get some big numbers using his 1 (landslide)
  325. if built right. Shouldn't really use him unless you like him and want to have "fun".
  326.  
  327. Augments:
  328. 1 (Path of Statues) Landslide leaves a trail that petrifies enemies for a short while.
  329. 2 (Tectonic Fracture) Lets you make more rock walls but you can't turn them into boulders. (Poor man's Frost)
  330. 3 (Ore Gaze) causes enemies turned to stone to be scanned into the Codex and have a chance to drop extra loot.
  331. 4 (Titanic Rumbler) instead of 2 rock elementals you summon 1 that's bigger and stuff.
  332.  
  333. == Banshee
  334.  
  335. Sound themed frame.
  336. Some people consider her fun. Most people are not that kind of person.
  337. Roles: CC, Damage, Buff
  338.  
  339. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Banshee
  340.  
  341. Passive: All weapons are treated as silent.
  342.  
  343. Her 1 (Sonic Boom) is a quick shockwave that knocks back enemies in front of you in a cone.(don't use it for damage it's laughable)
  344. Her 2 (Sonar) puts weak spots on enemies and marks them on the map, shooting the spots makes you do more damage.
  345. Her 3 (Silence) briefly stuns enemies within a radius and makes everything deaf.
  346. Her 4 (Sound Quake) makes her quake the ground in a radius, enemies in range take damage, are staggered and/or knocked down.
  347.  
  348. Augments:
  349. 1(Sonic Fracture) makes her sonic boom temporarily reduce enemy armor.
  350. 2(Resonance) shooting and killing on the weakspots casts another Sonar in a radius around the target.
  351. 3(Savage Silence) while silence is active enemies affected by it take extra % finisher damage.
  352. 4(Resonating Quake) turns Quake into a one time cast shockwave that deals more damage near the center.
  353.  
  354. -Quake (CC) Banshee that runs max range and enough duration to hit Sound Quake's efficiency cap. Dump stat is power strength.
  355.  
  356. -Resonance Banshee that runs the Resonance augment and builds for high duration, high strength, and high range
  357. (yes, it needs everything). Recast Sonar to stack weak points. Only good for extremely long endless runs.
  358. For the vast majority of the game (including sorties), damage is not a problem with good weapons/damage frames/CP.
  359.  
  360. == Baruuk
  361.  
  362. Monk frame.
  363. Roles: Survivability, CC
  364. https://warframe.fandom.com/wiki/Baruuk
  365.  
  366. Passive: "Restraint" provides up to 50% damage resistance when meter is depleted.
  367. Using abilities erodes meter.
  368. Using his 4 refills the meter until full.
  369.  
  370. 1 (Elude) dodges all incoming projectiles while not attacking, in a cone in front of you.
  371. Buffs range of his 3 while active.
  372. 2 (Lull) spreads a wave around him that slows down enemies and puts them to sleep. Resets enemy alert state when they wake.
  373. 3 (Desolate Hands) summons daggers that him give damage reduction.
  374. Daggers will fly out, damage and disarm enemies if they are close. They can also jump to allies.
  375. Can be recast to restore daggers.
  376. 4 (Serene Storm) Exalted Fists. Empowers fists similar to excalibur's Exalted blade, and valkyr's hysteria.
  377. Attacks send out energy waves where you aim, they also have a lot of punchthrough and decent crit chance/damage.
  378. Staggers/Ragdolls enemies. Provides damage reduction while active.
  379. Each combo has some different properties (levitate enemies/pull them in/etc).
  380. Does not use energy, instead uses his Restraint meter.
  381.  
  382. Augments:
  383. 2(Endless Lullaby) using a finisher on a sleeping enemy recasts Lullaby for 100% of the duration.
  384. 4(Reactive Storm) increases Desert Wind status chance and makes all attacks match enemy weakness.
  385.  
  386. His 4 augment makes him like a better version of Excal, the energy waves will pretty much delete everything you look at.
  387.  
  388.  
  389. == Chroma
  390.  
  391. Dragon themed frame.
  392. The king of gimmick builds.
  393. Roles: Survivability, Damage, Credit Farm, Buff
  394.  
  395. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Chroma
  396.  
  397. Passive: Changing his energy color changes his abilities' properties.
  398. >Red, magenta, brown, orange and bright yellow - Heat
  399. >Blue and purple hues - Electricity
  400. >Green, lime, teal and dark yellow - Toxin
  401. >White, grey, black, and some faded colors - Cold
  402.  
  403. His 1(Spectral Scream) fires a breath of the element you picked.
  404. His 2(Elemental Ward) emits an aura around himself and nearby allies
  405. Heat - Health buff + heat dot around you.
  406. Electricity - Shield buff + converts damage taken and zaps a nearby enemy.
  407. Toxin - Increased reload and holster speed + toxin dot around you.
  408. Cold - Armor Buff + reflects damage back at enemies.
  409. His 3(Vex Armor) emits an aura around himself and nearby allies, taking shield hits increases armor, taking health hits
  410. increases your weapon damage. Buff is based on Chroma taking hits. Can be recast to keep buff.
  411. His 4(Effigy) makes him shed his dragon pelt which then acts as a sentry, it attacks nearby enemies and stuns them and
  412. boosts credit drops in a small radius around it. While effigy is up you run faster but have reduced armor.
  413.  
  414.  
  415. Augments:
  416. 1 (Afterburn) after you cancel spectral scream you shoot a projectile that deals damage for each second the scream was up.
  417. 2 (Everlasting Ward) allies retain your elemental ward buff after getting out of range.
  418. 3 (Vexing Retaliation) taking damage causes a burst around you, shield hits proc puncture, health hits proc blast.
  419. 4 (Guided Effigy) hold 4 to move your effigy to a location, doing damage to enemies in path.
  420.  
  421.  
  422. For general soloing:
  423.  
  424. Ice Chroma is tankiest Chroma, building high/max power strength, max duration.
  425. Dump stat is range. Efficiency isn't as important because Vex Armor and Elemental Ward are all you'll be using and each
  426. one last 50s+. With Vex Armor and Elemental Ward active, you become increasingly tankier and deal increasingly
  427. more damage the more you get hit; the effective HP from Steel Fiber and Vitality thus become significantly magnified.
  428. You still need some way to regain health from chip damage. Medi-Ray is the best and easiest way to do so, but bringing
  429. along another source of healing is a good idea, e.g. Magus Elevate/Repair, Lifestrike, lifesteal Furis, Syndicate proc.
  430.  
  431. Word of caution: Tank Chroma requires multiple high-ranked r10 mods and forma to become good.
  432. Chroma is not recommended for new players.
  433.  
  434. Meta for Eidolon Hunts.
  435.  
  436. == Ember
  437.  
  438. The fire frame.
  439. Roles: Damage, CC, Buff
  440. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Ember
  441.  
  442. Passive: Gain a small % power strength buff based on number of enemies on fire around her.
  443.  
  444. Her 1(Fireball) shoots a fireball that does damage on impact and around the area hit.
  445. Can charge the fireball for extra damage and leaves fire at target location.
  446. Has a mini combo counter similar to Atlas' 1 where casting multiple times will do increased damage up to a point.
  447. Increases heat meter.
  448. Her 2(Immolation) gives a base damage reduction that increases based on the heat meter.
  449. Will drain energy if at 100% heat for too long.
  450. Her 3(Fire Blast) creates a wave of fire that damages enemies knocks them back.
  451. Removes 50% heat from the meter.
  452. Enemies hit have their armor reduced by 50%-100%
  453. Her 4(Inferno) causes meteors to crash on enemies in line of sight within range and leaves a ring of fire on them.
  454. Enemies can spread this ring of fire by getting close to each other.
  455. Increases heat meter.
  456. Damage increases with heat meter %.
  457.  
  458.  
  459. Augments:
  460. 1 (Fireball Frenzy) casting fireball on allies gives them extra % heat damage on all attacks.
  461. 2 (Immolated Radiance) gives allies in affinity range 50% of the damage reduction.
  462. 3 (Healing Flame) heals Ember based on each enemy hit by the blast.
  463. 4 (Exothermic) gives enemies affected by her 4 a chance to drop energy orbs on death.
  464.  
  465.  
  466. == Equinox
  467.  
  468. Yin-Yang/Day & Night frame
  469. Was Male(day)/Female(night) frame but the trap jokes were too much for DE.
  470. Roles: Damage, CC
  471.  
  472. This frame has 2 forms, Day form is more damage focused while Night form is more of a support role.
  473.  
  474. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Equinox
  475.  
  476. Passive: Picking up health orbs gives you a bit of energy, picking energy orbs gives you a bit of health.
  477. Starts mission in Day or Night form depending on your energy color.
  478. Bright colors = Day Form
  479. Dark colors = Night Form
  480. Her 1(Metamorphosis) Switches between forms. Switching to Night gives you extra shields and armor, switching to Day gives you
  481. a weapon damage boost and you run faster - all of these effects are temporary and fade over time.
  482. Her 2(Rest & Rage) Rest(Night Form) puts targeted enemy and nearby enemies asleep, while they sleep you can use a finisher.
  483. Rage(Day Form) enrages target enemy and nearby enemies, move and attack faster but also take extra damage.
  484. Her 3(Pacify & Provoke) Pacify(Night Form) - Emits an aura around you that reduces enemy damage.
  485. Provoke(Day Form) - Emits an aura that buffs nearby allies Power Strength.
  486. Her 4(Mend & Maim) Mend(Night Form) - Emits an aura that stores hitpoints with each enemy killed, when deactivated it distributes
  487. stored hitpoints evenly to health and shields of you and allies.
  488. Maim(Day Form) - Emits an aura that damages enemies and stores damage with each enemy killed within range,
  489. when deactivated it releases a burst of damage based on how much was stored up.
  490.  
  491.  
  492. Augments:
  493. 1 (Duality) when using metamorphosis you spawn a specter of your opposite form that deal lingers for a bit and does extra damage.
  494. 2 (Calm & Frenzy) enemies killed under the effect of Rest or Rage spread the effect to nearby enemies.
  495. 3 (Peaceful Provocation) Pacify(Night Form) turns damage done to your allies into a slow aura.
  496. Provoke(Day Form) turns damage done to enemies into extra Power Strength.
  497. 4(Energy Transfer) keep 4 charge while switching forms.
  498.  
  499.  
  500.  
  501. Her Night Form sleep is an 'alright'CC, her damage reduction aura isn't anything too crazy, most of the time you'll probably
  502. be in Day form buffing allies and storing your Maim for giant bursts of damage.
  503.  
  504. Good for specific frames because her damage buff gives power strength rather than damage.
  505.  
  506. There are a few builds:
  507.  
  508. -Maim build (Day form) that builds max range with enough duration to hit the efficiency cap.
  509. Dump stat is power strength (strength is good on buff builds but you will very rarely run a buff Equinox).
  510. Press 4, let damage store, press 4 again. The amount of damage you want to store before popping depends on the mission, but it
  511. doesn't take a lot of kills. Natural Talent is very good to speed up Maim's 2s cast time.
  512. Maim is ineffective against armored units unless you bring multiple CP.
  513.  
  514. -Low-level Maim build that builds max range and high strength, with enough duration to hit the efficiency cap.
  515. Instead of relying on Maim's stored damage you'll be relying on its initial Slash proc to deal damage.
  516. The slash damage it'll do is poor and only works on low levels (<20), but this build is very efficient for low levels.
  517. Particularly good against corpus, use it to farm some relics on Io, Jupiter.
  518.  
  519. -Peaceful Provocation build (Night form) that uses the slow part of Peaceful Provocation (PP), building for high power strength
  520. (ideally 200% to hit the slow cap) and high range. Dump stat is duration; some people like to add duration for Sleep,
  521. but mod space is very limited. PP's slow takes a long time to build up, especially for a competent team that has ways to
  522. mitigate damage. Self-damaging weapons alleviates this problem. Even then, slow is not a hard disable like Stomp or Bastille.
  523. Note that although this ability drains energy, it is not a channeled ability; Zenurik/Energy Siphon still work through it.
  524.  
  525. -Rest build (focus farm) - Max duration and range, putting everything to sleep and kill them.
  526.  
  527.  
  528. == Excalibur
  529.  
  530. Swordsman frame
  531. Roles: Damage, CC
  532.  
  533. The poster boy of Warframe was behind many nerfs and buffs over the updates. Currently he is sitting in a pretty high
  534. spot as one of the few frames that actually has abilities that scale off your weapons making him pretty good despite
  535. being available for everyone even from the start.
  536.  
  537. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Excalibur
  538.  
  539. Passive: Attacks faster and does a bit more damage with:
  540. Longswords
  541. Dual swords
  542. Nikanas
  543. Rapiers
  544.  
  545. His 1(Slash Dash) dashes between enemies in a cone while cutting them down with his exalted blade.
  546. His 2(Radial Blind) raises his blade and blinds enemies in a radius, blinded enemies take extra melee damage.(Needs line of sight)
  547. His 3(Radial Javelin) slams down his blade on the ground, launching javelins towards his enemies.
  548. His 4(Exalted Blade) summons an energy blade and puts you in melee mode, attacks launch energy waves (can be aimed).
  549.  
  550.  
  551. Augments:
  552. 1 (Surging Dash) enemies hit by slash dash increase your melee combo counter.
  553. 2 (Radiant Finish) enemies affected by radial blind take extra % finisher damage.
  554. 3 (Furious Javelin) temporarily increases melee damage done for each enemy hit by radial javelin.
  555. 4 (Chromatic Blade) makes exalted blade work like Chroma, energy color changes its status type and boosts status by 50%.
  556.  
  557. Radial Blind's Line of sight requirement makes it unreliable as CC, though the damage amplification it gives is good.
  558.  
  559. -EB build is by far the most popular build. If you want to go pure EB, all you need is power strength, but most of the time there’s
  560. enough mod space to add range and duration for Radial Blind. Using Radial Blind is in fact encouraged since it's not just CC but
  561. also a DPS increase via the stealth damage multiplier; against high-level enemies using Radial Blind is a must.
  562. An equally important part of this build are your melee mods.
  563. Slap on Condition Overload and as much damage as possible through elementals, also grab the Chromatic Blade augment.
  564. EB has mediocre crit stats, but modding for crit + Berserker will still give you the highest DPS.
  565.  
  566. -Radial Blind build that goes for max range and duration. Dump stat is power strength.
  567. Pure Radial Blind builds are unpopular because the line-of-sight restriction makes its CC unreliable;
  568. you can get shot at from an enemy less than 5 feet away if he's around a corner.
  569.  
  570. == Frost
  571.  
  572. King of defense missions. Recent changes to him added a bunch of shit to his arsenal but in the end you'll still be sticking to
  573. your good old trusty globe. Loved vs things that shoot but absolutely hated on missions that feature infested.
  574.  
  575. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Frost
  576. Roles: Defense, CC, Buff
  577.  
  578. Passive: Melee attacks made against Frost have a chance to freeze the attacker.
  579.  
  580. His 1(Freeze) shoots an icy blast at a target, direct hits freeze enemies otherwise they slow.
  581. Can shoot the ground to put up patches of ice that slow enemies walking through.
  582. Can also be used to pop unwanted Snow Globes, just aim at one and fire.
  583. His 2(Ice Wave) sends a wave of icy shards in a cone in front of you, enemies hit are also slowed.
  584. His 3(Snow Globe) puts down a protective snow globe (can have up to 4). Can shoot from inside but not from outside it.
  585. His 4(Avalanche) summons an avalanche that freezes enemies(reduces their armor while frozen) and damages them.
  586.  
  587.  
  588. Augments:
  589. 1 (Freeze Force) casting freeze on allies gives them extra % cold damage on all attacks.
  590. 2 (Ice Wave Impedance) casting ice wave will leave behind a trail of ice that slows enemies walking over it.
  591. 3 (Chilling Globe) enemies that enter snow globe have a chance to be frozen.
  592. 4 (Icy Avalanche) gives you and allies a coat of ice that absorbs 60 damage per target hit by Avalanche.
  593.  
  594.  
  595. Not much needs to be said about Frost, use him to protect objectives or downed allies while you revive them.
  596. He has some 'decent' CC in the form of freezes and slows.
  597. Due to his recent changes to globe not requiring duration you can now run range and nuke if you want it.
  598. Casting Snow Globe again while inside one will add up both their hp, good for having healthy globe.
  599.  
  600. -Snowglobe builds are versatile. The core of any Snowglobe build is high power strength and decent range (at least Stretch) so
  601. explosives/Napalm doesn't splash through Snowglobe. Beyond that, some people only care about globe HP, in which case adding
  602. more power strength and Steel Fiber is good (globe HP scales with armor).
  603. Some people prefer higher range via Cunning Drift/Overextended; the loss in globe HP can be made up for by simply stacking globes.
  604. Dump stat will generally be duration, but many people like to add duration for the Chilling Globe augment;
  605. duration also makes Avalanche more effective as CC. No matter which build you use, Snowglobe is great for Defense, Mobile Defense,
  606. Excavation, and camping. Plop it down and sit inside. Make sure to use your CC when needed.
  607. Most people consider using Frost in Infested missions to be a mistake.
  608. Snowglobe is significantly less useful against melee units and also stops your team from hitting anything inside it.
  609. For any mission, make sure to pop Snowglobes if they’re in the way.
  610.  
  611.  
  612. = Gara

  623. Damage scales with your melee mods. Can use 1 to break her 4 (does AOE damage).

  625. When cast on enemies they take an increased % damage taken from weapons/abilities.
  626. Her 3(Spectrorage) spawns spinning mirrors that cause nearby enemies to attack it (like Loki's decoy), when the mirrors break

  803. Allies can shoot into pool to contribute 50% of their total damage from weapons and abilities, split to submerged enemies.
  804. While in pool form you can aim and shoot at enemies to pull them into the pool.
  805. Can move around in pool form, but very slowly. Use tidal surge to move around.
  806. Every other ability works during pool form.
  807. His 4(Tentacle Swarm) summons watery tentacles that spawn from various surfaces and wreak havoc in an area.
  808. Enemies hit by or walking into the tentacles will be grabbed by them and take damage over time. (Can be recast)
  809. Can hold the cast button to increase number of tentacles and range, at the cost of double energy.
  810. When cast during undertow tentacles will spawn in the pool and do 200% damage.
  811.  
  812.  
  813. Augments:
  814. 1 (Corrosive Barrage) projectiles from Tempest Barrage cause a corrosive proc.
  815. 2 (Tidal Impunity) your tidal surge clears procs from you and allies in your path and makes you immune to them for a short while.
  816. 3 (Curative Undertow) allies can stand on your pool to heal over time.
  817. 4 (Pilfering Swarm) Enemies killed by tentacles or killed while grabbed by one drop extra loot.
  818.  
  819. His kit is mainly about CC, he can keep multiple areas or chokepoints under lockdown on his own with his 1/3/4.
  820. He's more often used for farming ever since his Tentacle Swarm augment.
  821.  
  822. Great for solo farm but in groups you may want to get an actually organized group. Run full strength, no range and negative
  823. duration. With the augment you should still have enough energy from double drops to keep you up and running while you spam
  824. tentacles at every group of enemies you see. Keep spamming it and enjoy loot.
  825. Alternatively you could build for duration on your Tentacle Swarm so you can pop it in a tight space and then afk
  826. in pool form while shit keeps running at you and dying to tentacles.
  827.  
  828.  
  829. == Inaros
  830.  
  831. Mummy frame
  832.

  834.  
  835. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Inaros
  836. Roles: Survivability, CC
  837.  
  838.  
  839. Passive: Instead of bleeding out on the floor when downed he enters a sarcophagus.
  840. While on it you can aim at enemies or allies to steal some hp to get himself back up. (can target companions)
  841. Performing finishers restores 20% of his health.

  853. and deals damage over time and also spreads to nearby enemies, keeping them locked in place.
  854. Enemies affected by the swarm emit an aura that heals you and nearby allies for a bit of the damage being dealt.
  855.

  857. dies he can consume a nearby enemy to revive with full hp. Has alright CC with most of his abilities namely his pocket sand (1) and
  858. his scarab armor swarm (4).
  859.  
  860. Augments:
  861. 3 (Elemental Sandstorm): Your sandstorm has a chance to inflict status effects based on your melee weapon mods.
  862. 4 (Negation Swarm): your swarm protects you from status effects, using up 3% bonus armor every time.
  863.  
  864. There is one build:
  865.  
  866. -CC Inaros that builds max range and high duration for pocket sand. Dump stat is power strength.
  867. Vitality + Steel Fiber are necessary; Rage is also good for infinite energy sustain.
  868. Bring a dagger with Covert Lethality for finishers. You want to start almost every mission by building up Scarab armor to max.
  869. Blind enemies with pocket sand, shank them to regain health.
  870.  
  871.  
  872. == Ivara
  873.  
  874. Frog/Archer frame
  875. Mostly supportive/stealth frame
  876.  
  877. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Ivara
  878. Roles: Utility, Survivability, Damage
  879.  
  880. Passive: Innate radar that detects enemies within 20 meters and shows them on minimap.
  881.  
  882. Her 1(Quiver) press to switch between 4 arrow types, hold to fire.

  886. Dashwire Arrow - Forms a zipline between from your feet to the point of impact.
  887. Noise Arrow - Fires an arrow that attracts enemies to the point of impact.
  888. Sleep Arrow - Fires an arrow that puts enemies in a radius asleep, also opens them up for a melee finisher.
  889. Her 2(Navigator) allows you to take control of the next projectile you fire or one already mid flight also increases it's damage.
  890. Her 3(Prowl) Makes you invisible while active, can steal loot from nearby enemies and buffs your headshot damage.
  891. Running, sliding or bullet jumping while prowl is active will deactivate it.
  892. Firing a non-silent weapon will temporarily deactivate prowl.
  893. Her 4(Artemis Bow) pulls out her powerful bow, each shot will fire multiple arrows.
  894. Shooting normally will fire a spread of arrows vertically, charging the bow fires them horizontally.
  895. While having the Artemis Bow out you can use the secondary fire to instantly fire one of the arrows from her 1 (Quiver).
  896. While Artemis Bow is out Ivara can't melee attack.
  897.  
  898.  
  899.  
  900. High-utility frame that offers good damage, survivability, and cheese potential.
  901. Artemis Bow (AB) scales off of rifle/bow weapon mods and gives her good DPS.
  902. Has built-in survivability with Prowl, making her a good solo frame, and Prowl’s slowness can be mitigated by rolling everywhere;
  903. the Infiltrate augment also has fringe use in cheesing Spy missions. Navigator provides insane damage bonuses that is often
  904. overkill and generally not worth the time/energy investment. Quiver provides tons of utility: Cloak arrows are great and your
  905. team will love you for it, while Sleep arrows provide good CC in a small AOE. Dash arrow occasionally has its uses.
  906. Noise arrow is useless 99% of the time but has its niche in soloing.
  907. She has a good set of tools on her, can make her work in a few different scenarios.
  908. Sorties, rescues, intercept solos and others. Go crazy with her.
  909.  
  910. Augments:
  911. 1 (Empowered Quiver) dashwire gives 100%crit damage and cloak arrow prevents status effects.
  912. 2 (Infiltrate) While prowled you can move through laser barriers and gain 25%movement speed.
  913. 3 (Piercing Navigator) each enemy hits increases the projectiles crit chance by 10% up to 50.
  914. 4 (Concentrated Arrow) fire a single arrow, has more crit chance on headshots and explodes in a radius. Removes punchthrough.
  915.  
  916. -AB/Prowl build that builds high power strength for Artemis Bow with enough efficiency/duration to hit the efficiency cap for
  917. AB/Prowl. Dump stat is range. Bring a primary weapon modded for crit. Fire rate mods such as Vile Acceleration are recommended
  918. to take advantage of Artemis Bow’s horizontal fan.
  919.  
  920. -Hybrid build that’s essentially the first build but sacrifices power strength for range/duration, allowing for more utility
  921. through Cloak arrows. Good general all-purpose build for when you still want utility but don’t trust your allies enough to
  922. dedicate yourself to supporting them. Don't worry about AB's damage; even a low strength AB with Prowl can kill lv100 enemies.
  923.  
  924. -Cloak build that builds high range and high duration for Cloak arrows. Dump stat is power strength.
  925. Spam Cloak arrows on allies and on yourself. Cloak is especially useful for sortie defenses to keep the operative alive.
  926. For missions with object-type defenses e.g. Mobile Defense, Cloak will NOT protect the objective.
  927.  
  928. -Noise arrow build that builds max range and enough efficiency for Prowl.
  929. Duration for Sleep arrow (+Covert Lethality) is recommended. Dump stat is power strength. Ever only used to solo Interception
  930. missions. Stay in Prowl and use Noise arrow to lure enemies away from towers, which causes them to stand around doing nothing.
  931. Once you have all 4 towers captured and enemies are in a permanent state of doing nothing, you can afk in Prowl and do something
  932. else until the end of the round. Be careful that sometimes a stray enemy will still cap towers.
  933.  
  934. -Solo Survival build that builds max duration (so Prowl steals quicker) and 100% power strength to get max steal chance with Prowl.
  935. Range is also desired but not as important. Entirely used to solo Survival missions for hours, using Prowl to steal life support
  936. and a Covert Lethality dagger to kill enemies with Sleep arrow.
  937.  
  938.  
  939. ==Khora
  940.  
  941. Cat lady
  942. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Khora

  955. Pressing 3 if cat is dead will revive it.
  956. Her 4(Strangledome) makes a dome of chains that snares enemies.
  957. Enemies in the chains take damage over time and 200% extra damage from weapons and abilities.
  958. They also take damage from other enemies.
  959. Hitting an enemy inside the the dome with your 1 causes all of them to take half of the damage.
  960.  
  961. Augment:
  962. 1 (Accumulating Whipclaw) hitting 3 enemies gives a stacking 35% damage buff to Whipclaw casts, decays after 10s.
  963. 4 (Pilfering Strangledome) enemies caught in the dome have a chance to drop extra loot on death.
  964.  
  965. == Limbo
  966.  
  967. Magician/M'lotus/Za Warudo - Occasionally used for defense sorties or to cheese an event or whatever through the rift mechanics.
  968.  
  969. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Limbo
  970. Roles: Utility, CC
  971.  
  972. Passive: Rift Plane, an alternate dimension that Limbo can send people in and out of.
  973. While in the rift gets energy regen, enemies killed inside give 10 energy.
  974. Stuff inside the rift cant interact with whatever is outside it and vice-versa.(Warframe powers don't care about the rift)
  975. Shift (roll) to get in and out of the rift. This also leaves a fissure your team can walk through.
  976. You can stay as long as you like in rift, allies will eventually be brought back out.
  977.  
  978. His 1(Banish) sends allies or enemies in a small radius to the rift. Allies in the rift get a passive energy regen.
  979. Banish targets must be in the same Plane as Limbo to be affected.
  980. Enemies sent there get damaged and suffer a knockdown on cast.
  981. His 2(Stasis) completely freezes enemies in the rift plane. Can be toggled on/off.
  982. His 3(Rift Surge) charges nearby enemies, charged enemies that leave the rift get banished back in and pull in
  983. nearby enemies with them. If a charged enemy dies outside the rift they transfer the charge to nearby enemies.
  984. His 4(Cataclysm) blasts a Rift Sphere at the target location, anything inside the sphere will be in the rift.
  985. The sphere’s final collapse deals damage to enemies both in and out of the sphere, and scales based on the
  986. average health and shields of ALL enemies in the Rift. The sphere shrinks over time.
  987. Bonus damage further scales with Cataclysm's current range/duration, dealing 25% of its total when at its
  988. maximum and up to 100% when at its minimum.
  989.  
  990.  
  991.  
  992. Augments:
  993. 1 (Haven) Allies banished to the rift have a portion of their health restored.

  999. Banish a few enemies, jump into the rift and kill them/surge them and send them back out to gather more enemies in a small radius.
  1000. You can also just pop Cataclysm over an area and put everything in Stasis then melee it all to shit.
  1001. Alternatively you can just cast it and pop it immediately, since damage is based on number of enemies and their health/shields
  1002. it will more than likely kill everything, provided there are enough enemies for it to scale properly. (nerfed to shit)
  1003. Heavily armored enemies will give you a harder time doing this.
  1004.  
  1005.  
  1006. == Loki
  1007.  
  1008. Trickster frame
  1009. A beast of a warframe who is one of the few that is usable everywhere regardless of what level or content it is,
  1010. although nowadays not many use him.
  1011.  
  1012. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Loki
  1013. Roles: CC, Survivability, Speedrunning
  1014.  
  1015. Passive: 10x Wall-Cling duration.
  1016.  
  1017. His 1(Decoy) deploys a holographic decoy of Loki that shoots and draws enemy attention (does no damage).
  1018. His 2(Invisibility) makes him invisible (who knew?), while invisible loki gets stealth damage multipliers to melee attacks.
  1019. His 3(Switch Teleport) makes loki switch places with his target. (works with his decoy and allies)
  1020. His 4(Radial Disarm) sends out a wave of energy that permanently disarms enemies in a radius, making them go into melee mode.
  1021. Causes damage to certain enemies.
  1022.  
  1023. Augments:
  1024. 1 (Savior Decoy) if Loki takes fatal damage, decoy absorbs the dmg and switches places with him. Increases Decoy cast speed.
  1025. 2 (Hushed Invisibility) makes your weapons silent while using invisibility.
  1026. 3 (Safeguard Switch) makes allies targeted by your Switch Teleport invulnerable for a short period.
  1027. 4 (Irradiating Disarm) enemies hit by Radial Disarm are confused for a while and attack each other.
  1028.  
  1029.  
  1030. He has 2 builds one which focuses invisibility while the other disarm:
  1031.  
  1032. For invisibility you go for maximum duration,optional hushed invis.
  1033.  
  1034. For disarm you go for maximum range with natural talent making every dumbass enemy forget how to shoot a gun in a split
  1035. second.
  1036.  
  1037.  
  1038. == Mag
  1039.  
  1040. Magneto wannabe
  1041.  
  1042. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Mag
  1043. Roles: Damage, Utility
  1044.  
  1045. Passive: Vacuum effect on every Bullet Jump.
  1046.  
  1047. Her 1(Pull) pulls enemies in line of sight to her while dealing damage.
  1048. If an enemy is Magnetized they take extra damage and if they die they may drop an energy orb.
  1049. Her 2(Magnetize) roots the target in place and deals damage over time in a bubble around it.
  1050. A percentage of the damage of absorbed bullets/projectiles/shrapnel will be used to increase the DOT.
  1051. Up to 4 targets can be Magnetized at this time.
  1052. Her 3(Polarize) sends a wave out in a radius around her. Targets with shields will take shield damage, while targets
  1053. with armor take health damage and a permanent armor debuff.
  1054. Targets will emit a piece or two of shrapnel which can be used to create synergies with Mag's other abilities.
  1055. Her 4(Crush) suspends her victims in the air and forcefully compresses their bodies, dealing damage over 3 ticks.
  1056. Magnetized enemies take extra damage.
  1057.  
  1058.  
  1059. Augments:
  1060. 1 (Greedy Pull) Pulls pickups to you, requires line of sight.
  1061. 2 (Magnetized Discharge) can manually burst the bubble.
  1062. 3 (Counter Pulse) jams enemy weapons and disables robotic enemies for a set duration.
  1063. 4 (Fracturing Crush) gives Crush the ability to reduce enemy armor as well as temporarily immobilize survivors.
  1064.  
  1065. After her rework, Mag is no longer the Corpus-slaying machine she was, but in return she's gained more versatility across
  1066. all three factions. Magnetize is her new go-to skill; its damage is infinite-scaling and it also doubles as (okay) protection.
  1067. The best weapons by far to use with Magnetize are AOE explosive weapons (e.g. Tonkor, Kulstar); weapons such as Lanka,
  1068. Miter, Mara Detron, etc. also deserve mention because their projectiles can bounce inside Magnetize.
  1069. Using any other weapons will be underwhelming.
  1070. The protection offered by Magnetize is decent but you shouldn't depend on it entirely.
  1071.  
  1072.  
  1073. -Magnetize Mag that builds high/max range and high power strength. Negative duration (play around with Transient Fortitude/Fleeting
  1074. Expertise/Continuity to see what works for you) is preferred because it shortens the delay in the explosion damage.
  1075. Because you'll be spamming Magnetize so often, Natural Talent is a good choice to speed up Magnetize's cast time.
  1076. Cast Magnetize, shoot your gun in its general direction, kill everything inside, and the explosion damage will take care of
  1077. the rest. Magnetize works best when cast at choke points.
  1078.  
  1079. An alternative to this build is to get duration, Magnetize an enemy, unload on the bubble and then alt tab.
  1080.  
  1081.  
  1082. == Mesa
  1083.  
  1084. Cowgirl frame
  1085.  
  1086. 2nd best hips and ass in warframe.
  1087. All you'll ever do with her is sit in a high spot and masturbate while she shoots at every grineer stupid enough to get in sight.
  1088. Getting her includes some of the most mindnumbing and retarded grindwalls yet 2nd only to Vauban.
  1089.  
  1090. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Mesa
  1091. Roles: Damage, Survivability
  1092.  
  1093. Passive: +10% fire rate with dual wielded sidearms.
  1094. +20% reload speed for one handed sidearms.
  1095. +50 health when a melee weapon is not equipped.
  1096.  
  1097. Her 1(Ballistic Battery) stores up damage you done by your guns, when used again it uses the stored up damage in the next shot.
  1098. Her 2(Shooting Gallery) buffs your weapons damage and jams nearby enemy weapons. This buff shifts between your team members.
  1099. Her 3(Shatter Shield) casts an energy shield that reduces incoming bullet and projectile damage and reflects it back.
  1100. Her 4(Peacemaker) pulls out her Regulator pistols, hold your fire button to shoot at targets within the targeting circle.
  1101. The damage and firing speed ramps up over time. (Benefits from secondary weapon mods)
  1102.  
  1103. Augments:
  1104. 1 (Ballistic Bullseye) makes the ballistic battery shot have an increased status chance.
  1105. 2 (Muzzle Flash) makes shooting gallery blind enemies for a short time before switching to a teammate.
  1106. 3 (Staggering Shield) makes reflected shots have a chance to stagger enemies.
  1107. 4 (Mesa's Waltz) allows you to move around slowly while in Peacemaker.
  1108.  
  1109.  
  1110. Excellent damage frame with good survivability. Shooting Gallery staying on her means you now have a permanent 60%+ damage
  1111. increase. Peacemaker scaling with secondary mods is absolutely huge, allowing PM to deal good damage even into sorties.
  1112. While Shatter Shield's 95% damage reduction is certainly useful, there are many things that go through it, e.g. explosives.
  1113. Fortunately, she can often kill enemies quick enough that they can't even hit her.
  1114.  
  1115. -Damage/tank build that runs high duration and high power strength. Dump stat is range. Vitality can also be used if you
  1116. want more survivability. Use Peacemaker to mow down waves of enemies, but be careful of standing still for too long.
  1117. You want to recast PM often anyway so the aiming reticule isn't so small. Your secondary mods are equally important;
  1118. use the standard crit secondary build.
  1119.  
  1120.  
  1121. == Mirage
  1122.  
  1123. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Mirage
  1124. Roles: Damage, CC
  1125.  
  1126. Passive: Faster bullet jump and maneuver speeds
  1127.  
  1128. Her 1(Hall of Mirrors) summons holograms around you that mimic every move. Holograms draw enemy attention and do a bit of damage.
  1129. Her 2(Sleight of Hand) booby traps nearby interactive objects and places jewel where you aim. Enemies touching the jewel will
  1130. cause it to to explode doing either damage(light) or blinding them(in the dark).
  1131. Booby trapped objects have various effects on enemies (blind, stun, knockdown).
  1132. Her 3(Eclipse) gives you a weapon damage buff if you're standing in light, or damage reduction if standing in shadows.
  1133. Her 4(Prism) summons a disco ball that flies in the direction of your camera, damages enemies hit by beams of light.
  1134. Pressing the ability again or if the ability ends it blinds enemies in range for a bit, making them take extra melee damage.
  1135.  
  1136.  
  1137. Augments:
  1138. 1 (Hall of Malevolence) makes your holograms do more damage for each enemy killed.
  1139. 2 (Explosive Legerdemain) turns all pick ups in range into proximity mines.
  1140. 3 (Total Eclipse) shares your Eclipse buff with your teammates.
  1141.  
  1142. -DPS build that builds max power strength and max duration. Dump stat is range and efficiency.
  1143. Efficiency isn’t needed because you’re only casting two abilities every 50s. Uses Hall of Mirrors with the augment and Eclipse
  1144. to deal massive damage. Surprisingly, this build has a decent degree of survivability because her illusions draw enemy
  1145. fire (and also because she kills enemies so quickly).
  1146.  
  1147. -Prism build that builds max range and duration. Dump stat is strength. Must have Natural Talent because Prism has a very long
  1148. cast time. Useless on closed maps with lots of LoS obstruction, but still provides passable CC on large, open maps.
  1149.  
  1150. If going for a buff build with the augment build max duration and strength, no need for efficiency. Works same for self buffing
  1151. only.
  1152.  
  1153.  
  1154. == Nekros
  1155.  
  1156. Increases loot in a game about grinding. Everyone is all over his dick in survivals, this nigga runs this shit.
  1157. Can also be used for some solo with his shadows.
  1158.  
  1159. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Nekros
  1160. Roles: Farming, Survivability, CC, Utility
  1161.  
  1162. Passive: Enemy death within 10 meters of Nekros regenerates a 5 Health.
  1163.  
  1164. His 1(Soul Punch) punches the enemy's soul. Single target ability that does damage and knocks down an enemy.
  1165. His 2(Terrify) makes enemies shit themselves and run away for a bit, also reduces their armor for the duration. (can be recast)
  1166. His 3(Desecrate) puts up an aura that makes enemy corpses within range drop extra loot.
  1167. His 4(Shadows of the Dead) summons copies of enemies recently killed by you. The copies retain their original level and stats.
  1168. They also get a damage/shield/health buff but lose health over time, cast it again to replenish health and summon new shadows
  1169. to replace dead ones. If shadows are over 30 meters away from you they get teleported to you.
  1170.  
  1171. Augments:
  1172. 1 (Soul Survivor) makes your soul punch be able to revive downed allies but drains your energy.
  1173. 2 (Creeping Terrify) slows enemies hit by Terrify.
  1174. 3 (Despoil) makes your desecrate cost health instead of energy.
  1175. 4 (Shield of Shadows) makes your shadow copies take some of the damage meant for you.
  1176.  
  1177. -CC Nekros that runs the Creeping Terrify augment with high/max range and decent strength (120-150%).
  1178. Duration isn't as important since Terrify lasts incredibly long, but don't dump duration entirely; 50-80% works well.
  1179. Creeping Terrify is decent CC but is bogged down by its subpar range and unit cap.
  1180.  
  1181. -Desecrate build that runs max range. Dump stats are strength and duration. Generally runs the Despoil augment with Vitality
  1182. for easy upkeep, but if you have Zenurik or an EV Trin you can skip Despoil (despite being a toggle, you still gain energy
  1183. through Desecrate). Some people like to use the Soul Punch augment for instant revives (with Despoil,
  1184. there's nothing you use energy for). For a hybrid build, add Creeping Terrify and as much strength as you can fit;
  1185. you won't hit the slow cap, but it'll be enough to be useful and allow you to help your team as CC in addition to being a lootbot.
  1186.  
  1187. -SotD/Desecrate hybrid build that runs the Shield of Shadows (SoS) augment, Despoil, Vitality, base/high duration, high range,
  1188. and high strength (ideally 214% to hit SoS's DR cap, achievable with max Blind Rage + Power Drift). Yes - this needs almost
  1189. everything. Dump stat is efficiency because Equilibrium exists, which allows for infinite health/energy sustain using the Despoil
  1190. loop. Many people also like to use Health Conversion for extra tankiness. The core of this build is using SoS to achieve high
  1191. damage reduction, while Despoil and Equilibrium give you infinite sustain, and all the while your Shadows are drawing aggro and
  1192. you're Desecrating more loot/health/energy for allies. This is the most popular build for Nekros, but be careful of investment;
  1193. Health Conversion and Equilibrium can be difficult mods to acquire/level (Equilibrium is an uncommon r10), and these mods are not
  1194. used on any other frame. Your Sentinel also needs investment in order to not go down easily, because you are relying heavily on
  1195. Vacuum to suck up health orbs.
  1196.  
  1197. Note: Desecrate works well with slash damage weapons, which can dismember corpses into several parts. Each part can roll additional loot.
  1198.  
  1199.  
  1200. == Nezha
  1201.  
  1202. China warframes 2nd frame.
  1203.  
  1204. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Nezha
  1205. Roles: CC, Survivability, Speedrunning, Utility
  1206.  
  1207. Passive: Dude slides a lot.
  1208.  
  1209.  
  1210. His 1(Fire Walker) makes him run faster and leave behind a trail of fire that does damage to enemies and removes procs from allies.
  1211. His 2(Blazing Chakram) throws a ring of fire that deals damage+debuffs and ricochets around.
  1212. Killing debuffed enemies drops a health orb and has a chance at dropping an energy orb.
  1213. If pressed again while the ring is mid flight you will teleport to it.
  1214. If Fire Walker was active when you teleported it will do a burst of damage at the location.
  1215. His 3(Warding Halo) summons a fiery ring around you that reduces damage taken by 90% and makes you immune to status effects until
  1216. the ring's health pops. You'll be invulnerable for a few seconds after the damage shield pops.
  1217. The shield's health scales with your armor, power strength and damage taken during the initial seconds of its cast.
  1218. While the ring is active you do slash damage to enemies you walk into.
  1219. His 4(Divine Spears) summons spears from the ground that impale enemies, press ability again to slam them on the ground.
  1220. Hitting impaled enemies with your 2 spawns another Chakram.
  1221.  
  1222.  
  1223. Decent frame for general use. Runs fast, makes enemies take extra damage, spawns hp/energy orbs and has great survivability.
  1224.  
  1225. Augments:
  1226. 1 (Pyroclastic Flow) stores damage done by fire walker, can then detonate it.
  1227. 2 (Reaping Chakram) each enemy hit increases damage by 2x and increases chance to drop health orbs on death.
  1228. 3 (Safeguard) Warding Halo can now be cast on allies, with 50% effectiveness.
  1229.  
  1230. For general-use Nezha builds, see Rhino’s builds. Build Warding Halo as you would Iron Skin (strength + armor) and
  1231. Divine Spears as you would Stomp (range + duration + Natural Talent).
  1232.  
  1233. -Speedrunning build that uses all the sprint, slide, and parkour mods. Nothing else is needed.
  1234. You can mod duration/efficiency for Firewalker but it's not necessary.
  1235. Not recommended on lv60+ enemy missions because you will die very quickly.
  1236.  
  1237.  
  1238. == Nidus
  1239.  
  1240. Infested frame
  1241. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Nidus
  1242. Roles: CC, Survivability, Damage, Buff
  1243.  
  1244. Passive: Mutation stacks, for every 5 enemy hits with your 1(Virulence) or 4(Ravenous) you get a stack of mutation (capped at 100).
  1245. The stacks increase the damage of your 1 and 4.
  1246. If you are killed with at least 10 stacks they will be consumed, you'll get 5 seconds of invulnerability and get back to 50% hp.
  1247. Also has passive HP regen since he has no shields.
  1248.  
  1249. His 1(Virulence) slams a wave of infestation forward that damages enemies and gives back some of the energy used.
  1250. This ability gets stronger the more stacks of mutation you have.
  1251. His 2(Larva) summons an infested pod that pulls enemies into itself and keeps them there. Enemies are stunned for the duration.
  1252. His 3(Parasitic Link) creates a link between you and your target.
  1253. If it's an ally it'll give you both a damage buff, if it's an enemy it'll redirect damage take you take to them.
  1254. If you use his 1 while Linked, a second wave will fire from your linked target.
  1255. His 4(Ravenous) covers the ground in infestation and spawns maggots.
  1256. The maggots benefit from your mutation stacks and give stacks as well when they're hitting enemies.
  1257. Standing in the infestation also increases your health regen.
  1258.  
  1259. His 1 can do some pretty good damage if you're getting your stacks high and he has decent survivability with his passive hp regen
  1260. plus the regen from his 4 aswell and the bit of armor he has. His 2(larva) is pretty decent at keeping shit bundled up and stunned.
  1261. His 3 damage redirection caps at 90%.
  1262.  
  1263. Augments:
  1264. 1 (Larva Burst) lets you detonate larva, doing more damage for every enemy grabbed.
  1265. 4 (Insatiable) 60% chance to get an extra Mutation stack while standing in your infestation.
  1266.  
  1267.  
  1268. -Virulence build that runs high/max range, high/max power strength, and as much duration as you can fit (for Link).
  1269. Vitality is also recommended for extra tankiness. Dump stat is efficiency because Virulence refunds your energy, and with
  1270. smart usage can even gain you energy; however, some people like to use Rage because of his high health and regen.
  1271. The core of the build is spamming 1 to build stacks and deal damage, with the occasional Larva if enemies are more spread.
  1272. You should run a Link up at all times, not only for the survivability/buff but also for Virulence's double-cast.
  1273. Once enemy density is high enough, Ravenous should also be used frequently because it's essentially free.
  1274.  
  1275.  
  1276. == Nova
  1277.  
  1278. Design Council frame
  1279. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Nova
  1280. Roles: CC, Buff, Damage, Speedrunning
  1281.  
  1282. Passive: When Nova is knocked down, she will knock down enemies in a 6 meter Radius and deal damage.
  1283.  
  1284. Her 1(Null Star) summons small particles that float around her and fly out to nearby enemies.
  1285. Her 2(Antimatter Drop) summons an antimatter particle that can be steered with the reticle, it absorbs damage done to it
  1286. and explodes when it comes into contact with a solid object. (You can shoot it for a big damage boost)
  1287. Her 3(Worm Hole) creates a worm hole in front of nova that she and allies can use to travel a short distance.
  1288. Her 4(Molecular Prime) unleashes a wave of energy that spreads out slowly across the map, enemies hit by the wave are slowed
  1289. and take double damage, when they die they also explode which can trigger a chain reaction of explosions.
  1290.  
  1291. Thanks to her Molecular Prime ability she like Loki can fit everywhere regardless of mission or
  1292. level. Want to do those shitty infested missions faster? Go speed, want more CC? Go slow. All this while
  1293. doubling all damage your squad does.
  1294.  
  1295. Augments:
  1296. 1 (Neutron Star) recasting Null star makes remaining particles explode in an aoe.
  1297. 2 (Antimatter Absorb) gives antimatter drop an absorb field to absorb incoming fire and boost its damage potential.
  1298. 3 (Escape Velocity) using the worm hole gives you and your allies a short speed boost.
  1299. 4 (Molecular Fission) restores Null Star charges when Primed enemies are killed.
  1300.  
  1301. -Slowva build that runs max duration for MP with just enough power strength to hit the slow cap (145%, achievable with max
  1302. Intensify + Power Drift). Dump stat is range. Standard build.
  1303.  
  1304. -Speednova build that runs max duration for MP with minimum power strength (max Overextended). Because MP’s slow scales with power
  1305. strength, having less than 100% power strength will actually make enemies go faster.
  1306. Why is this good? Because this speeds up the mission. Preferred build for grinding Defense missions.
  1307.  
  1308.  
  1309. == Nyx
  1310.  
  1311. Mind control frame, female excalibur.
  1312.  
  1313. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Nyx
  1314. Roles: CC, Defense/Survivability
  1315.  
  1316. Passive: Enemies have a chance to miss Nyx more often.
  1317.  
  1318. Her 1(Mind Control) takes control of targeted enemy and makes them fight for you.
  1319. During 4 secs after casting, any damage you do to MC target is absorbed and converted to increase its damage.
  1320. Her 2(Psychic Bolts) sends out bolts that seek out enemies and debuff them.
  1321. Strips armor/shields or slows down enemies, depending on faction.
  1322. Intensify is enough to completely strip armor.
  1323. Her 3(Chaos) causes all enemies within a radius to see each other as enemies, they will fight whoever is closest.
  1324. Her 4(Absorb) forms an absorb shield around herself that absorbs all incoming damage, can be deactivated to release stored damage.
  1325. Absorbed damage also gives you a damage buff.
  1326.  
  1327.  
  1328. Decent utility frame. Chaos is okay CC, but is ultimately unreliable and overshadowed by Irradiating Disarm.
  1329. Absorb with the Assimilate augment makes you literally invincible and offers an alternative to Frost for defending objectives;
  1330. unfortunately, its low range means that unlike Snowglobe, you won't be able to protect allies. Several things (e.g. grenades)
  1331. also go through Absorb, and Assimilate's movespeed penalty makes it much worse if you're not camping.
  1332.  
  1333.  
  1334. Augments:
  1335. 1 (Mind Freak) your mind control targets gets a big damage boost.
  1336. 2 (Pacifying Bolts) enemies affected by bolts are confused for 10 secs.
  1337. 3 (Chaos Sphere) creates a circular radius in which enemies that enter its range are affected by Chaos. Circle shrinks over time.
  1338. 4 (Assimilate) can move while casting Absorb but the area is reduced in half.
  1339.  
  1340. -Standard Chaos Nyx that builds max range and high duration. Dump stat is power strength.
  1341. Note that recasting Chaos does not refresh its duration on units already affected.
  1342.  
  1343. -Minimum-duration Chaos Nyx that builds minimum duration (Transient Fortitude + Fleeting Expertise) instead of high duration.
  1344. Natural Talent is a must. Minimum duration allows you to chain one Chaos right after the previous one ends.
  1345. This allows you to take advantage of Chaos's initial stagger, which is better CC compared to Chaos's Radiation effect.
  1346. Unfortunately, this means your entire gameplay consists of pressing 3 every few seconds.
  1347.  
  1348. == Oberon
  1349.  
  1350. Heralded as a "paladin" warframe when is more of a druid.
  1351. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Oberon
  1352. Roles: Support, Buff, Survivability
  1353.  
  1354. Passive: Allied pets receive Health, Armor and Shield buff. In addition your pet receives 1 instant revive per mission.
  1355.  
  1356. His 1(Smite) bursts energy out of his target, projectiles then fly around looking for new targets.
  1357. His 2(Hallowed Ground) puts an energy carpet on the ground, standing in it gives an armor boost and status immunity.
  1358. His 3(Renewal) sends out a healing wave that heals you and allies as long as its active.
  1359. Gives an armor boost if allies are standing in hallowed ground.
  1360. His 4(Reckoning) raises enemies up in the air then slams them down. Enemies that survive will be blinded for a short while.
  1361. Enemies standing in hallowed ground will receive an armor debuff.
  1362. Enemies affected by Radiation take extra damage from Reckoning.
  1363. Enemies killed have a chance to spawn a health orb.
  1364.  
  1365.  
  1366. Supposedly a jack-of-all trades frame, but he actually can’t do anything well and doesn’t even have any niches like some other
  1367. bad frames. His only passable ability is Reckoning, which is okay for DEAC nuking and can function as CC by spamming
  1368. it over and over. Some people like to use Hallowed Ground for Radiation sorties, but even then there are better CC/utility options.
  1369. For some reason DE devoted time to making a kickass skin for a frame nobody liked.
  1370.  
  1371. Augments:
  1372. 1 (Smite Infusion) casting smite on allies gives them extra % radiation damage on all attacks.
  1373. 2 (Hallowed Eruption) casting hallowed ground again while another one is up causes the first one to explode.
  1374. 3 (Phoenix Renewal) allies taking fatal damage under Renewal will instead be healed to a certain health.(90 sec cooldown)
  1375. 4 (Hallowed Reckoning) enemies damaged by reckoning create small hallowed ground fields.
  1376.  
  1377.  
  1378. == Octavia
  1379.  
  1380. Bard frame
  1381. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Octavia
  1382. Roles: Damage, Utility, Buff
  1383.  
  1384. Passive: Briefly regen energy for you and allies when abilities are used.
  1385. Can make your own music that affect her abilities. (In her Appearance tab> Mandachord)
  1386. The step sequencer is divided into Melody, Bass and Percussion. Each affects a different ability.
  1387.  
  1388. Her 1(Mallet) throws a ball that when it lands makes enemies in the radius attack it and also damages them.
  1389. Damage done to it by enemies will in turn buff the Mallet's damage. Damage is dealt in rhythm of your Percussion track.
  1390. Requires line of sight with the enemy to deal damage.
  1391. Her 2(Resonator) throws a Roller that moves around, damages and charms enemies into attacking it.
  1392. If you have a Mallet active it will try to pick it up, making your Mallet mobile.
  1393. Damage is dealt in rhythm of your Bass track.
  1394. Her 3(Metronome) gives buffs to you and allies if certain actions are performed in sync with the Melody track.
  1395. Timed jumps give a speed buff;
  1396. Crouching gives a stealth buff;
  1397. Shooting gives a multishot buff;
  1398. Melee attacks give a melee damage buff.
  1399. You also gain armor for the duration of her skill.
  1400. Her 4(Amp) throws a ball that gives you and allies in range a damage buff and also doubles the damage and range of nearby Mallets.
  1401.  
  1402. Augments:
  1403. 1(Partitioned Mallet) lets you have 2 mallets out but with reduced range each.
  1404. 2(Conductor) lets you command the roller to move wherever you want by pressing 2 again.
  1405.  
  1406. Build for high duration, range and power strength.
  1407. She provides your team with quite a few helpful buffs and can keep enemies distracted for a long time.
  1408. Her Mallet can deal pretty good damage if it absorbs enough damage. Think of it like Nova's antimatter drop,
  1409. except it deals damage over time instead of blowing up, only absorbs enemy damage tho.
  1410. Overall pretty decent frame.
  1411.  
  1412. == Protea
  1413.  
  1414. Engineer frame
  1415. https://warframe.fandom.com/wiki/Protea
  1416. Roles: Damage, Utility
  1417.  
  1418. Passive: Every fourth time you cast any of your abilities, it gets +100% Power Strength for that cast.
  1419. Her 1 (Grenade Fan) throws grenades that either explode into AOE shrapnel that stunlocks enemies, or become shield
  1420. boosters that constantly generate overshields for yourself and allies and increase shieldgate time.
  1421. Her 2 (Blaze Artillery) spawns a turret that shoots at anything in its frontal arc. Has punchthrough and every time it
  1422. hits an enemy, its damage multiplier goes up based on how many targets it pierced through.
  1423. Her 3 (Dispensary) spawns a dispenser that provides health orbs, universal ammo packs, and energy orbs every few seconds.
  1424. Her 4 (Temporal Anchor) gives her a brief invuln on cast, then "rewinds" you after a few seconds back to the state and
  1425. position you were in when you cast it, and also deals a portion of all damage dealt during the countdown as an AOE.
  1426. Holding 4 cancels the ability if you don't want to rewind.
  1427.  
  1428. The shitters demanded a turret frame and they got one. Of her abilities, the most useful is probably Dispensary,
  1429. free energy orbs and it's the only thing in the game that restores Archgun ammo on demand.
  1430. The turrets are decent, shield grenades are good survivability. Her 4 is counterproductive and trash.
  1431.  
  1432. Augments:
  1433. none yet
  1434.  
  1435. -Build for high strength and duration, try to keep range around 100%, efficiency can be sacrificed since she has energy orbs on
  1436. demand and Zenurik/Energize exist. Even at default range her 1 grenades have a decent radius. The number of Blaze Artillery
  1437. shots scale with Duration(more shots=more enemies being hit=more damage).
  1438. Consider unironic use of an Archgun, since she uniquely can keep it supplied with ammo.
  1439. Protea pairs extremely well with frames that can pull in groups of enemies(Nidus-Larva/Vauban-Vortex/Zephyr-Airburst)
  1440. since her Turret will pierce all enemies, very quickly increasing the damage multiplier and reaching high damage numbers.
  1441. Consider replacing her 4 with Larva once the Helminth Chrysalis system is released.
  1442.  
  1443.  
  1444.  
  1445. == Revenant
  1446.  
  1447. Eidolon/Sentient themed frame
  1448. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Revenant
  1449. Roles: CC, Survivability, Damage
  1450.  
  1451. Passive: Immune to magnetic night waters in Plains.
  1452. Mesmer skin immune to certain Eidolon attacks.
  1453. 4 can kill vomvalysts without Operator.
  1454. When shields deplete, emits a radial blast that knocks down enemies.
  1455. (Bunch of useless shit.)
  1456.  
  1457. 1 (Enthrall) converts an enemy into your thrall. Converted enemies can spread this up to 7 thralls.
  1458. On death, thralls leave an energy pillar for 10 secs.
  1459. It deals damage in a small radius and generates homing projectiles that seek out enemies.
  1460. These projectiles have a chance to enthrall enemies but you won't see the marker on their head.
  1461. Costs no energy when cast on an enemy stunned by his 2(Mesmer Skin).
  1462. Pillars can be exploded by his 4(Danse Macabre)
  1463. Thralls can be damaged by you or allies at any point.
  1464. 2 (Mesmer Skin) shields you with Sentient energy. Reflecting up to 6 attacks(scales with Strength) for 100% of the damage.
  1465. 3 (Reave) dashes through enemies as a wall of energy. Leeches health/shields from enemies, drains more on thralls.
  1466. Will restore Mesmer Skin charges per thrall when you dash through them.
  1467. Passing through allies will give them a stack of Mesmer Skin.
  1468. Half cost during his 4.
  1469. 4(Danse Macabre) spins around shooting lasers that deal damage (damage based on enemy type).
  1470. Hold fire button to increase laser damage/status chance and energy drain.
  1471. Damage taken during 4 buffs damage output.
  1472. Deals Corrosive against armor. Magnetic against shields. Gas against Infested.
  1473. You can move around freely while spinning.
  1474. Enthralled enemies killed by 4 drop Overshield pickups.
  1475. Damage reflected by his 2 also buffs damage.
  1476.  
  1477.  
  1478. == Rhino
  1479.  
  1480. Most players' first frame. With iron skin he can reduce dmg to him and ignore obstacles such as laser doors and just plow
  1481. through it.
  1482.  
  1483. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Rhino
  1484. Roles: CC, Survivability, Buff
  1485.  
  1486. Passive: Fast falls will make Rhino discharge a shockwave on landing that deals damage and knocks down nearby enemies.
  1487.  
  1488. His 1(Rhino Charge) charges forward while doing damage, can quickly be cast again for more damage and range.
  1489. His 2(Iron Skin) hardens his skin, making him immune to damage and status effects while the iron skin still has health.
  1490. Using Rhino Charge with Iron skin active gives the charge a 100% blast proc. (Knockdown)
  1491. His 3(Roar) grants all allies in range increased damage bonus.
  1492. His 4(Rhino Stomp) stomps the ground with force, doing damage and temporarily putting enemies in stasis.
  1493.  
  1494. Widely regarded as a noob frame, but actually he does many things decently. Iron Skin is a passable tank ability that falls
  1495. way short of literal invincibility other frames have and will not protect you in endgame.
  1496. Roar is a good team buff ability and you generally activate it whenever you can.
  1497. Stomp is good CC but has two weaknesses: its low duration and its inability to be refreshed on affected units.
  1498.  
  1499.  
  1500. Augments:
  1501. 1 (Ironclad Charge) temporarily increase armor based on how many enemies hit by charge.
  1502. 2 (Iron Shrapnel) recasting Iron Skin allows you to detonate it, dealing its remaining health as damage and knocks down enemies.
  1503. 3 (Piercing Roar) Using roar causes a puncture proc on nearby enemies.
  1504. 4 (Reinforcing Stomp) Iron skin is replenished by 80 for each target affected by Stomp.
  1505.  
  1506. -Tank Rhino that builds for high/max power strength and armor for Iron Skin. Dump stat is duration (unless you want to use Roar).
  1507. The Ironclad Charge augment is surprisingly decent; Ironclad Charge + Steel Fiber provides a significant boost to Iron Skin,
  1508. but it's probably not worth the effort. The Iron Shrapnel augment is a must-have for the sole purpose of being able to re-cast
  1509. Iron Skin. Even still, don’t expect to be invincible endgame. If you want to tank, Rhino is a suboptimal frame for it.
  1510.  
  1511. -CC Rhino that builds for max range and high duration. Dump stat is power strength. Natural Talent is recommended to speed up
  1512. Stomp's cast time. You’ll mostly be using Stomp, and unfortunately Iron Skin's tankiness and Roar's damage will suffer as a result.
  1513.  
  1514. -Hybrid build. All-purpose general build. Basically a CC Rhino that trades duration/range for power strength so Iron Skin/Roar
  1515. isn’t gimped. Probably the most popular build.
  1516.  
  1517. -Buff Rhino that builds max strength and max duration for Roar. Range is less important, but adding range helps to make sure you
  1518. don't miss allies with Roar. Only ever used in Berehynia runs. Rhino is the best buffer to use for Berehynia because he buffs all
  1519. damage, compared to elemental buffers who can't buff abilities like Spores/Quake.
  1520.  
  1521. Rhino gets bonus points for being newbie-friendly. He’s easy to mod for and easy to roll through low-level content with.
  1522.  
  1523. Even though he might seem he is FUCKING INVINCIBLE he isn't. High level enemies will chew through iron skin like popcorn.
  1524.  
  1525. == Saryn
  1526.  
  1527. Gas queen/fart frame
  1528.  
  1529. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Saryn
  1530. Roles: Damage, Buff
  1531.  
  1532. Passive: Status chance effects last longer (25%)
  1533.  
  1534. Her 1(Spores) infects a target with spores if spores are popped they spread to other enemies.
  1535. Spores have no duration and will keep spreading and increasing in damage as long as there are enemies to spread to.
  1536. They also do corrosive damage which will shred enemy armor over time with its procs.
  1537. Her 2(Molt) sheds her skin and leaves behind a decoy and giving you a speed boost. Decoy can explode and deal toxin damage.
  1538. The decoy will absorb some of the initial damage taken and convert it into health.
  1539. Her 3(Toxic Lash) adds toxin damage to your weapons. 2x on your melee weapon.
  1540. Hits with 3 active also pop spores on enemies.
  1541. Her 4(Miasma) releases a poisonous mist that does Viral damage over time to enemies in a radius.
  1542. Does extra damage to enemies with Spores and spreads it.
  1543.  
  1544. Former Queen of DEAC, and actually she's still good for DEAC after her rework. Spores is her new go-to ability.
  1545. Miasma's damage is okay but falls off hard lategame and is overall inefficient compared to Spores, though its stagger can be useful
  1546. as emergency CC. Molt is unreliable at drawing aggro, and endgame enemies kill you and Molt too quickly for Regenerating Molt's
  1547. heal to be useful.
  1548. Unlike most other damage frames, Saryn lacks survivability.
  1549.  
  1550. Augments:
  1551. 1 (Venom Dose) casting Spores on allies gives them extra % corrosive damage on all attacks.
  1552. 2 (Regenerative Molt) casting molt lets you regenerate health over time.
  1553. 3 (Contagion Cloud) enemies killed by toxic lash leave behind a gas cloud that does toxin damage.
  1554.  
  1555. You want to prioritize max range, then max power strength, followed by as much duration as you can fit.
  1556. Dump stat is efficiency; you'll only be casting Spores, which lasts forever as long as it can spread.
  1557.  
  1558.  
  1559. == Titania
  1560.  
  1561. Fairy frame
  1562. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Titania
  1563. Roles: Damage, CC/Utility
  1564.  
  1565. Passive: +25% Bullet Jump distance and generates Health for herself and nearby Allies every time she casts an Ability
  1566.  
  1567. Her 1(Spellbind) throws some fairy dust on enemies, causing them to be levitated and ragdolled.
  1568. Also makes surrounding allies immune status effects.
  1569. Hold 1 to cast on self.
  1570. Her 2(Tribute) suspends the soul of an enemy, touching it gives a buff depending on which one you choose.
  1571. Her 3(Lantern) levitates up to 4 enemies, mesmerizing nearby enemies towards it, while taking damage from a swarm of butterflies.
  1572. Her 4(Razorwing) shrinks her and puts her in archwing mode. Weapons are replaced and scale with rifle and melee mods.
  1573.  
  1574. Spellbind is subpar CC that suffers from extremely low range (tied for lowest range of any CC) and a long cast time.
  1575. Razorwing gives you decent damage and survivability.
  1576.  
  1577. Augments:
  1578. 3(Beguiling Lantern) attracted enemies take more melee damage.
  1579. 4(Razorwing Blitz) Flight speed and fire rate increased by 25% for 8s when using abilities, stacks up to 4.
  1580.  
  1581. -Razorwing build that builds high power strength and enough duration/efficiency to hit the efficiency cap. Dump stat is range,
  1582. though you can mod for range/Natural Talent if you want a hybrid build to use her other abilities.
  1583. The archgun is quite flexible and can be built many ways: crit, status, damage via pure elementals, and/or fire rate.
  1584. No matter how you build it, it has good damage, but because of its single-target nature, it gets out-damaged by other damage frames
  1585. and arguably isn't even as good as some top-tier guns. The melee is flat-out bad; it has awful crit stats, mediocre status, and
  1586. furthermore lacks the AOE potential of other melees. You'll also rarely be able to use melee, because Razorwing's 50% evasion
  1587. doesn't even come close to being good survivability, especially when the razor butterflies go down.
  1588. Razorwing also disables your companion and you can't interact with objects.
  1589.  
  1590. -CC Build that builds max range and high duration. Dump stat is power strength.
  1591. Natural Talent is highly recommended to speed up her slow cast times.
  1592. Don't use Razorwing for damage, because a negative-strength Razorwing is inferior to regular guns.
  1593.  
  1594. == Trinity
  1595.  
  1596. Her abilities are fully utility so she is best used as the supportive roll of sucking the enemies dry of their energy
  1597. and giving it to her squad. Hated by DE on all accounts.
  1598.  
  1599. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Trinity
  1600. Roles: Infinite energy, Survivability, Team survivability
  1601.  
  1602. Passive: Revive fallen allies faster from further away.
  1603.  
  1604. Her 1(Well of Life) lifts an enemy into the air and marks them with a green aura, shooting the marked enemy restores health.
  1605. Her 2(Energy Vampire) marks an enemy and makes him pulse energy to nearby allies, if killed enemy will release all energy left.
  1606. Her 3(Link) links her to nearby enemies, reducing incoming damage and transferring it to linked targets.
  1607. Her 4(Blessing) restores allies' health and shields and gives damage reduction buff.
  1608.  
  1609. Decent support frame, though past nerfs hit her hard. Blessing being capped at 75% damage reduction makes it significantly less
  1610. useful, because there is a world of difference between 75% and 99% damage reduction - and this is without taking into account its
  1611. range being limited to 50m now. Her EV build remains unchanged and still provides infinite energy to your team, but EV by itself
  1612. isn't anything to get too excited about.
  1613.  
  1614. Augments:
  1615. 1 (Pool of Life) marked enemies drop a health globe on death with a chance at dropping an energy one as well.(who even uses this??)
  1616. 2 (Vampire Leech) excess energy will replenish shields and boost into overshields.
  1617. 3 (Abating Link) reduces armor of all linked enemies.
  1618.  
  1619. -EV build that prioritizes max range, then max power strength. You want minimum duration (Fleeting Expertise + Transient Fortitude)
  1620. to shorten the time between energy pulses. Dump stat is efficiency. Often runs the EV augment.
  1621. EV Trin is most useful if you don't have Zenurik focus, and her usefulness decreases significantly if you do.
  1622. Make sure to use Blessing to heal if anyone gets low.
  1623.  
  1624. -Blessing build that runs max duration to make sure Blessing lasts as long as possible, with at least 50% power strength to hit the
  1625. damage reduction cap. Dump stat is range, though you can add range for better EV capabilities; although time between pulses is long
  1626. and range is shit, you can simply EV the target, gather around it, and then kill it, which will release the remaining energy
  1627. charges (this is why going over 50% power strength may be useful).
  1628. Tank Trinity builds should also use Link, which grants an additional 75% damage reduction on top of Blessing's 75%,
  1629. in which case you should also mod some more range for Link.
  1630.  
  1631. Meta for Eidolon Hunts.
  1632.  
  1633. == Valkyr
  1634.  
  1635. The "berserker" warframe. Outclassed by both chroma at being more durable and excalibur at being the better melee
  1636. focused frame.
  1637.  
  1638. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Valkyr
  1639. Roles: Survivability
  1640.  
  1641. Passive: Recovers from knockdowns faster and doesn't have to wait for landing animation when she falls.
  1642.  
  1643. Her 1(Rip Line) fires a grappling hook, if it hits terrain she will launch herself in that direction.
  1644. If it hits an ally or enemy they will be pulled to her, enemies taking damage.
  1645. Can be cast again shortly after for extra damage and reduced energy cost.
  1646. Her 2(Warcry) boosts allies attack speed and armor and reduces enemy movement speed.
  1647. Her 3(Paralysis) unleashes her shields in front of her damaging and stunning enemies. Stunned enemies are open to finishers.
  1648. Her 4(Hysteria) imbues her with energy and rage, unleashes energy claws and she becomes immune to damage.
  1649.  
  1650. RIP sweet princess. Hysteria got gutted by the energy nerf and is now impossible to permanently sustain
  1651. (while also restricting you to melee). Her only usefulness - survivability - got gutted with zero compensation.
  1652. She still lacks any sort of utility or CC. All her other abilities are awful, although Warcry is a decent melee buff
  1653. (especially with the augment, which causes it to last the entire mission). If you want to tank, there are loads of better options.
  1654.  
  1655. Augments:
  1656. 1 (Swing Line) after an initial rip line succesive uses of rip line while airbone cost no energy.
  1657. 2 (Eternal War) melee kills increase Warcry's duration.
  1658. 3 (Prolonged Paralysis) increases paralysis's stun duration and slowly pulls enemies towards valkyr.
  1659. 4 (Hysterical Assault) use secondary fire to lunge at enemies.
  1660.  
  1661.  
  1662.  
  1663. -Hysteria/melee build that builds high power strength and high duration for Eternal War. Range is your dump stat.
  1664. If you plan on staying in Hysteria as long as possible, you will need efficiency, though you'll still have to constantly enter and
  1665. exit Hysteria because the drain is so unsustainable; Rage/Zenurik can help you sustain.
  1666. In fact, some players don't like to rely on Hysteria post-nerf and instead opt for a tank melee build, in which case
  1667. you don't need efficiency as much. For both builds, Vitality+Steel Fiber can help you survive out of Hysteria.
  1668. Mod your melee for crit, because Hysteria’s claws have a whopping 50% crit chance; many players also like to run
  1669. Life Strike and/or Prime Reach. Hysteria struggles against Nullifiers and flying enemies.
  1670.  
  1671. == Vauban
  1672.  
  1673. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Vauban
  1674. Roles: CC
  1675.  
  1676. Passive: does 25% extra damage to enemies affected by his CCs
  1677.  
  1678. His 1(Tesla Nervos) launches a roller that follows you around and sticks to enemies, doing damage to them.
  1679. Hold 1 to charge and throw 4.
  1680. They have a 50% chance to proc electric each time they damage, stunning enemies briefly.
  1681. His 2(Minelayer) - Cycles through 4 deployables
  1682. Tether Coil- deploys a mine that sticks to any surface, enemies in range are pulled in.
  1683. Overdriver- deploys a mine that gives the closest ally a % weapons damage bonus
  1684. Flechette- deploys a mine that hovers in place and shoots out nails in every direction.
  1685. Damage scales with strength, enemy level, passive and Overdriver mine.
  1686. Vector Pad- deploys a directional pad that propels allies/enemies in its direction.
  1687. His 3(Photon Strike) launches a beacon shortly followed by an aoe orbital strike.
  1688. Damage scales with enemies level, power strength and his passive.
  1689. His 4(Bastille/Vortex) launches a grenade that creates a field suspending enemies in the air and stripping their armor.
  1690. At the end Bastille will colapse into Vortex, pulling enemies into it.
  1691. Holding 4 while Bastille is active will turn all Bastilles into Vortex.
  1692. Holding 4 without any Bastilles will launch Vortex by itself.
  1693.  
  1694. The other King of Defense. Particularly good for Infested missions.
  1695. Bastille is his best ability, granting spammable CC in a huge area. Vortex is good, but generally you'll be spamming Bastille
  1696. more than Vortex. His different mines are fun but also useless when Bastille exists.
  1697. Fills the same niche as Frost for Defense, camping, etc. with the upside that he’s useful in Infested missions.
  1698. Downside is that unlike Frost, Vauban is less effective against guns (especially in wide-open maps),
  1699. requires more maintenance, and gets fucked over by Nullifiers.
  1700.  
  1701. Augments:
  1702. 1 (Tesla Bank) damaging an enemy attached by a nervos will release all damage taken into a burst of AoE damage on death.
  1703. 3 (Photon Repeater) if Photon strikes hits at least 5 targets the next one will be free.
  1704. 4 (Repelling Bastille) Repels new enemies from bastille once it reaches the maximum amount of enemies it can hold and increases
  1705. Vortex's duration for every additional Vortex thrown into it.
  1706.  
  1707.  
  1708.  
  1709. == Volt
  1710.  
  1711. Sanic.
  1712.  
  1713. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Volt
  1714. Roles: Defense, CC, Speedrunning
  1715.  
  1716. Passive: Moving on the ground gives a stackable Electric damage buff to your next melee strike.
  1717.  
  1718. His 1(Shock) shocks a target and chains to nearby enemies, stunning for a little bit.
  1719. Causes targets affected by his 4(Overload) to AOE burst.
  1720. His 2(Speed) gives him and allies a movement/melee attack speed boost.
  1721. His 3(Electric Shield) creates an energy shield in front of him.
  1722. Shots fired through the shield gain extra electricity damage and a crit damage boost.
  1723. Casting 1(Shock) on the shield will charge it, making enemies that touch it take damage.
  1724. The Shield can also be picked up and carried in front of you. (This drains energy)
  1725. His 4(Discharge) spreads out a wave that turns enemies into 'Tesla Coils' that zap nearby enemies.
  1726. Damage is dealt to the enemy-turned- Tesla Coil and its targets.
  1727. Casting Shock on Tesla Coil causes an AOE burst.
  1728.  
  1729. Jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none frame. Despite DE trying to buff him with a rework, his power level has not changed much.
  1730. Electric Shield is still a good defensive ability with the added benefit of being able to pick up the shield, but has several
  1731. downsides when picked up. Speed is still a good ability for speedrunning, and the reload speed buff it received means that it
  1732. works best with weapons that reload frequently. Overload received the biggest change and is inarguably buffed.
  1733.  
  1734. Augments:
  1735. 1 (Shock Trooper) casting Shock on allies gives them extra % electricity damage on all attacks.
  1736. 2 (Shocking Speed) enemies touched by you or allies while sprinting get zapped.
  1737. 3 (Transistor Shield) allies can pick up your shields.
  1738. 4 (Capacitance) converts a percentage of damage done by Discharge into shields, split between you and allies.
  1739.  
  1740. -Shield build that runs max duration. Dump stat is range and power strength, though there's often enough mod space to
  1741. add power strength for Speed. Best used with crit guns. Shield is a good defensive ability but outshined by Snowglobe since
  1742. you need to constantly maintain multiple shields for full coverage, which is made more difficult by the shield limit.
  1743. Picking up the shield is cool but not reliable since enemies can still shoot you from the back/sides.
  1744.  
  1745. -Speed build that runs high/max strength, high duration, and high range (yes, everything). Press 2 and turn your team
  1746. into racecars. For solo play, Volt still lacks the survivability of Loki (the other top speedrunner) with his Invis.
  1747.  
  1748. -Discharge build that runs high/max range. The other attributes are trickier to mod for. Because of Discharge's damage cap
  1749. mechanics, no combination of strength/duration will give you a consistent, long duration stun; Discharge will almost
  1750. always last significantly shorter than the ability states, especially on light units, and furthermore cannot be refreshed
  1751. on affected targets.
  1752.  
  1753. Meta for Eidolon Hunts.
  1754.  
  1755.  
  1756.  
  1757. == Wisp
  1758.  
  1759. wil o wisps/ghost frame
  1760.  
  1761. https://warframe.fandom.com/wiki/Wisp
  1762. Roles: Buff, Survivability, Damage
  1763.  
  1764. Passive: while airborne Wisp is invisible to enemies
  1765.  
  1766. 1(Reservoirs) deploys small pods that give 1 of 3 buffs.
  1767. Vitality: Increases max health and gives health per second.
  1768. Haste: Increases movement speed, attack speed and fire rate.
  1769. Shock: Zaps nearby enemies with Electric damage and 100% status chance
  1770. While the pods themselves last forever, the motes are duration based.
  1771. Can have up to 6 pods at any given time.
  1772. 2(Wil o Wisp) sends a ghost clone forward in the direction you aim, drawing enemy fire.
  1773. Wisp and companion are invisible while the ghost is out.
  1774. Press 2 again to teleport to the clone's location.
  1775. You have 3 seconds of invulnerability when teleporting.
  1776. Holding 2 will launch a much faster moving clone.
  1777. 3(Breach Surge) Small radial surge that blinds enemies in range and marks them.
  1778. Marked enemies have a chance to release homing sparks that do Radiation damage and have a multiplier of the
  1779. damage received. Projectiles have increased crit multiplier and home in on enemy heads.
  1780. Using 3 while your 2 ghost clone is out will cause it to also do the radial blind.
  1781. Using 3 while aiming at a Reservoir will teleport you to it and double the range of the blind.
  1782. 4(Sol Gate) shoots a giant beam where you're aiming, doing increasing Radiation and Heat damage every half second up to 500%.
  1783. Beam has infinite punchthrough on enemies.
  1784. Can cast 2 and also move around while using the beam.
  1785. Holding left click will increase the beams damage and energy drain.
  1786. Each Mote from Reservoir adds a small bonus to the beam.
  1787. Vitality increases damage by 25%
  1788. Haste gives the beam Corrosive procs, not damage
  1789. Shock also increases damage by an additional 25%.
  1790. Has 100% chance to trigger the homing sparks from her 3.
  1791.  
  1792. Build for Strength and Duration, some range if you use her 3 often.
  1793.  
  1794.  
  1795. == Wukong
  1796.  
  1797. China warframes 1st frame.
  1798.  
  1799. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Wukong
  1800. Roles: Survivability
  1801.  
  1802. Passive: Allows Wukong to cheat death up to 3 times, giving 1 of 5 buffs whenever you would die.
  1803. Primal Forces: 300% elemental damage for 60 seconds.
  1804. Heavenly Cloak: Invisibility for 30 seconds.
  1805. Cosmic Armour: Invulnerable for 30 seconds.
  1806. Monkey Luck: Enemies killed yield extra loot drops for 60 seconds.
  1807. Sly Alchemy: Orbs 4x more effective for 60 seconds.
  1808.  
  1809. His 1(Celestial Twin) creates a clone of wukong.
  1810. Clone has increased health, uses melee if you're using a gun and vice versa.
  1811. Lasts forever unless you hold 1 or it dies.
  1812. Press 1 while aiming at an enemy will mark it for the clone to do 2x damage.
  1813. His 2(Cloud Walker) makes wukong disappear into a cloud (basically invisibility). While in the cloud he can move in any direction.
  1814. Heals wukong and clone based on distance travelled.
  1815. Bumping into enemies will stun them.
  1816. Doesn't trigger spy lasers.
  1817. His 3(Defy) taunts enemies for 2 seconds while absorbing damage. Multiplies damage taken into an attack right after.
  1818. Gains an armor buff based on damage taken up to a cap of 1500 armor.
  1819. Clone will mimic the ability.
  1820. His 4(Primal Fury) has him summon his Iron Staff as a melee weapon.
  1821. Clone will also mimic this ability.
  1822.  
  1823.  
  1824. Augments:
  1825. 1 (Celestial Stomp) holding 1 while aiming at an enemy will cause the clone to do a slam attack and lift enemies up.
  1826. 3 (Enveloping Cloud) allies within range of cloud become invisible for 14 secs.
  1827. 4 (Primal Rage) killing enemies increases your crit chance by 10% and decays 1% over time.
  1828.  
  1829.  
  1830.  
  1831. == Zephyr
  1832.  
  1833. While being at the same tier of uselessness as Oberon she can still do some hard CC and go fast on her own.
  1834.  
  1835. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Zephyr
  1836. Roles: Survivability/Defense, Damage
  1837.  
  1838. Passive: Improved aerodynamics, being able to move mid-air more flexibly and faster
  1839.  
  1840. Her 1(Tailwind) propels her up(if grounded) or facing the reticle(if airborne), nose dive(aiming down).
  1841. Can charge up her 1 from the ground, causing her to hover and making next tailwind free to cast.
  1842. Her 2(Airburst) shoots out a projectile that AoEs on impact, pulling enemies. Hold to push ene
  1843. Shoot at Tornadoes makes them bigger.
  1844. Her 3(Turbulence) creates a whirlwind shield around her that redirects incoming projectiles.
  1845. Her 4(Tornado) creates multiple tornadoes that lift up enemies.
  1846. Tornadoes can be shot with certain elements to change its damage type and damage enemies in it.
  1847. Damage dealt to enemies over a tornado is multiplied by 200%.
  1848.  
  1849. Her most useful ability by far is Turbulence, which is a good survivability ability that can also function as AOE protection,
  1850. but be careful that several things (e.g. sapping ospreys) go through it.
  1851. She has minimal CC potential with Dive Bomb and Tornado.
  1852. (Tornado can in fact hurt your team by making enemies harder to hit).
  1853.  
  1854. Augments:
  1855. 1 (Target Fixation) each enemy hit increases Tailwinds damage by 50%, until landing. (Has a 2 second grace period)
  1856. 3 (Jet Stream) gives Zephyr and her allies additional movement speed and projectile speed.
  1857. 4 (Funnel Clouds) spawns more but smaller tornadoes and doesn't pick up enemies.
  1858.  
  1859. -Turbulence Zephyr that builds high duration and high range. Jet Stream and power strength are less necessary
  1860. but can still be good for going fast.
  1861.  
  1862. ===============================================================================================================================
  1863.  
  1864. Note: All the builds hinted above are their general uses. There are different more specific builds out there for different shit.
  1865. Don't take this all around general guide as the final say in everything.
  1866. For more detailed info (numbers, %s, etc) use the wiki.

  1880.  
  1881. There are few combinations that you'd ever want to use.
  1882. Corrosive + heat for most things and vs infested. Corrosive will help against the armor while heat provides a decent dps boost.
  1883. Viral + heat/Viral + Slash. At this point viral, heat and slash are better, Viral is generaly good because it increases damage to enemy hp. It's also great vs corpus. Viral heat ends up better than using magnetic poison on them.
  1884.  
  1885. Recent armor changes made enemies much less tanky so it doesn't matter much which of the above combinations you end up using,
  1886. shit dies quick either way.
  1887.  
  1888. For corpus it's best to use viral heat vs them, or toxin since it can bypass their shields and go straight into their usually lower health pool.
  1889.  
  1890.  
  1891. Elemental damage chart for the void: http://i.imgur.com/ugw0pQB.jpg
  1892.  
  1893. Builds:
  1894. =======
  1895.  
  1896. The main 3 mods for all your primary weapons will be: Serration, Split Chamber, Heavy Caliber/Vigilante Armaments. No matter what weapon these 3 mods must be used.
  1897.  
  1898. After that you are looking at the status of the weapon.
  1899.  
  1900. Does the weapon have shit status(at or under 15%) or is it a weapon that benefits from crits/very high damage per shot rather than status? Use pure elemental damage mods.
  1901.  
  1902. Does the weapon have decent status (over 15%) and does it have a decent fire rate? use the damage+status event mods instead.
  1903.  
  1904. Primary build for most/almost all primary weapons in the game
  1905.  
  1906. Serration, Split Chamber, Heavy Caliber/Vigilante Armaments, Toxin elemental damage mod, Cold/Electric elemental damage mod, Heat elemental damage mod, Shred/Primed Shred (if applicable).
  1907. The last slots are more or less utility slots where you will either put; Point Strike + Vital Sense, Vile Acceleration or a Syndicate mod if applicable.
  1908. You'll have to either: drop shred or heat in order to use it on a crit weapon build.
  1909.  
  1910. >BUT WHY NOT THOSE PHYSICAL DAMAGE MODS ?
  1911.  
  1912. They only increase that one physical damage type while elemental damage mods scale off its TOTAL damage. ie: fanged fusillade/sawtooth clip only increases the weapons slash damage by 120%/30% while an elemental damage mod will add 90% of its total damage as that element.
  1913. Unless the weapon is purely that physical damage type elemental damage mods will ALWAYS give a better benefit.
  1914.  
  1915. >WHAT ABOUT AMMO/MAG MODS ? I RUN OUT OF AMMO ALL THE TIME.
  1916.  
  1917. With more damage mods you'll have less to worry about ammo because you'll be killing stuff in less shots.
  1918. If you're running out of ammo bring ammo restores.
  1919.  
  1920. >BANE/EXPEL/WHATEVER?
  1921.  
  1922. Extremely situational/useless. Still better to use vile acceleration which will increase your dps or even another elemental mod.
  1923. PRIMED BANE mods however are not useless and can be used if you know it can fit your build.
  1924.  
  1925.  
  1926. Primary build for all secondary weapons in the game:
  1927.  
  1928. Hornet Strike, Barrel Diffusion, Lethal Torrent, Pathogen Rounds, Pistol Pestilence, Deep Freeze(viral)/Convulsion(corrosive), Primed Heated Charge or the regular one, Scorch
  1929.  
  1930. For more utility like anemic agility replace one of the event mods.
  1931.  
  1932.  
  1933. Primary builds for melee weapons:
  1934.  
  1935. The use of Prime Pressure Point/Condition Overload comes down to preference, you only need 2 status for CO to be better and status procs aren't exactly hard to put on enemies.
  1936.  
  1937. Crit Build: Prime Pressure Point, Viral Heat/Corrosive Heat, Blood Rush, True Steel, Organ Shatter, last mod user preference
  1938.  
  1939. Status Build:Condition Overload, Viral Heat/Corrosive Heat, Primed Fury, Weeping Wounds, Drifting Contact, last mod user preference
  1940.  
  1941. Hybrid Build: Condition Overload, Viral Heat/Corrosive Heat, Blood Rush, Weeping Wounds, Organ Shatter, last mod user preference
  1942.  
  1943. Charge Attack Build: Prime Pressure Point/Sacrificial, Berserker/Primed Fury, Corrupt Charge, Sacrificial/True Steel, Amalgam Organ Shatter, Killing Blow, elemental combo of preference
  1944.  
  1945. Preference mods: drifting contact, attack speed, range, something else
  1946.  
  1947. ***The above builds aren't the words of god, you can change pieces of it to whatever you feel like***
  1948.  
  1949. >WHAT ABOUT COPTERING?
  1950.  
  1951. Ded
  1952.  
  1953. Note: again, the builds listed may not work for every single weapon in the game. Some have specific builds.
  1954.

  1964. ===================
  1965. == 4. Companions ==
  1966. ===================
  1967.  
  1968. Sentinels, kubrows, kavats and MOAs are going to be your battle companions through the grind.
  1969. Some are extremely useful while others are extremely useless.
  1970. All Pets now have Vacuum (Fetch for animal companions).
  1971.  
  1972.  
  1973. ================
  1974. ==4.1 Sentinels:
  1975.  
  1976. You can get a sentinel by buying its blueprint off the market and crafting it. Nothing else is required.
  1977. The sentinel itself doesn't need anything for upkeep but it is fragile in combat, regen and at least a rank 6-10 vitality or redirection should be used on it.
  1978. Every sentinel has its own abilities, weapon and different target range for attack. You can use a Wyrm laser on a Carrier, a sweeper on a Wyrm will shotgun at very long range etc.
  1979. They will never get targeted by enemy fire and will only proceed get fired at if you get downed but it will still easily die from bombards and other AOE.
  1980. By unequipping the "attack" mod off the sentinel you can make it never attack enemies and only use its abilities.
  1981.  
  1982. If you want to keep a sentinels weapon but sell the sentinel you can do so and keep the weapon. You get 4 slots by default and you can get 2 additional slots for 12 plat as
  1983. every sentinel will use 2 slots (1 for the sentinel and 1 for the weapon).
  1984.  
  1985. Useful mods for the sentinels include: Vacuum which will pull in loot for you in around a 12m~ radius, Regen/Primed Regen which will revive it after it dies once/three times,
  1986. Guardian which will regenerate your shields to full once every 30 seconds, Medi-Ray which will heal you over time, (Primed) Animal Instinct which will give you pocket Thief's wit/enemy radar,
  1987. and Coolant Leak which will slow enemies around you.
  1988.  
  1989.  
  1990. ===4.1.1 Carrier
  1991. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Carrier
  1992.  
  1993. Carrier will convert ammo and increase your ammo capacity. Its augment will cause it to shoot containers occasionally (useless without a weapon).
  1994. It has a shotgun as a weapon with great fire rate and status. Slap in some event mods for blast+electric, Seeking Fury and some fire rate mods and it'll keep everything that comes close to you permaCC'd.
  1995.  
  1996. Carrier Prime gets a massive HP boost, and its weapon gets a very slight damage boost.
  1997.  
  1998. ===4.1.2 Helios
  1999. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Helios
  2000.  
  2001. Scans shit for your codex automatically. The augment allows it to become a pocket banshee that will mark one fully codex-scanned enemy every 10 seconds for a slight damage boost.
  2002. It uses a glaive at medium range as a weapon and needs melee mods for it. Nothing special about it as it cannot crit.
  2003.  
  2004. Helios Prime gets a slight health and armor boost, while its weapon gets a slight damage boost.
  2005.  
  2006. ===4.1.3 Shade
  2007. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Shade
  2008.  
  2009. As long as there is 1 enemy in its line of sight, Shade will keep you invisible until you attack with a weapon. Its augment gives you a 20% weapon damage boost when you break invisibility.
  2010. Its weapon is a burst laser pistol. Uniquely, it has a 0.00s reload time and will never pause in firing if an enemy is in range.
  2011.  
  2012. Prisma Shade, sold by Baro, has very slightly higher shields and armor. Its weapon has negligibly higher damage, but significantly higher status chance.
  2013.  
  2014. ===4.1.4 Dethcube
  2015. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Dethcube
  2016.  
  2017. A single target damage dealing sentinel. Dethcube has no other use than its vaporize which will deal 900 radiation damage to an enemy that gets close to you.
  2018. Its augment causes it to shit out an energy orb after assisting in 10 kills. Uses the Deth Machine Rifle, which is more of a minigun.
  2019.  
  2020. Dethcube Prime gets a substantial HP and armor boost. Its weapon is slightly better than stock in all respects.
  2021.  
  2022. ===4.1.5 Djinn
  2023. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Djinn
  2024.  
  2025. Djinn has a "taunt" ability which will make enemies walk to Djinn instead of targeting you or anything else in their range. Will ONLY use it if there are 2 enemies within 24m of it after 10 seconds,
  2026. after which point you'd already could've killed them. Will also resurrect itself after 90 seconds, which has allowed it to see some use as a "revive battery" with Sacrifice. Uses a rifle with toxin darts as a weapon.
  2027.  
  2028. ===4.1.6 Wyrm
  2029. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Wyrm
  2030.  
  2031. A somewhat defensive sentinel, Wyrm will knock down enemies around you. Its shitty augment prevents you from receiving status effects every few seconds. Uses an low accuracy rifle at long range.
  2032.  
  2033. Wyrm prime gets a massive boost to shields and a big increase to its weapons crit chance.
  2034.  
  2035. ===4.1.7 Diriga
  2036. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Diriga
  2037.  
  2038. The CC sentinel, Diriga will stunlock a nearby enemy with an electricity proc but it won't be able to fire while doing. It also has an AOE electric attack that may proc electricity to everyone around you.
  2039. Its weapon is a high status, high crit sniper rifle with very long range.
  2040.  
  2041.  
  2042. ===============
  2043. ==4.2 Kubrows:
  2044.  
  2045. You can get a Kubrow once you've finished the Howl of the Kubrow quest rewarded from the Jackal.
  2046. In order to get your Kubrow you will have to: grind Earth missions and destroy Feral Kubrow nests until an egg drops, make an incubator and have a free slot.
  2047.  
  2048. Every 24 hours it will lose 5% of its bonus hp starting at +100% hp and ending at 0% (no hp bonus). If the kubrow gets downed in a mission you can revive it
  2049. as you would other players. If it dies it will lose happiness which will decrease its bonus damage by 10%. You can get it back up by "interacting" aka petting
  2050. it to increase its damage by 30%, can only be used 3 times a day.
  2051.  
  2052. Getting the clantech incubator upgrade will: decrease the time to hatch a kubrow from 48h to 24h, prevent all genetic degradation, and allow instant and free
  2053. Stasis recovery.
  2054.  
  2055. To remove your kubrow you HAVE to "consign" it to the lotus for 25k credits.
  2056.  
  2057. Kubrows are inferior to sentinels because: sentinels have no upkeep and will generally die only to AOE, unlike Kubrows that will run off and get themselves killed
  2058. in the middle of enemies, EXTREMELY costly mods every single one of them is fucking rank 10 and at least uncommon, 2 rank 10 damage mods which will make it deal
  2059. slightly more damage, will often attack enemies more than use their abilities, no way to make them not attack.
  2060.  
  2061. ===4.2.1 Huras Kubrow
  2062.  
  2063. The huras kubrow works just like shade giving you invisibility as long as it can get alerted by an enemy. Doesn't seem to need line of sight(?).Your kubrow can
  2064. attack enemies while invisible but will lose the buff if it attacks. Its other ability is a charge like ability which will make the kubrow knock down enemies in its path.
  2065.  
  2066. ===4.2.2 Raksa Kubrow
  2067.  
  2068. Works just like Nekros' Fear ability and the sentinel guardian mod. Will fear enemies once they come into its range slowing them down and making them run away.
  2069. Replenishes your shields once they go down with its other ability.
  2070.  
  2071. ===4.2.3 Sahasa Kubrow
  2072.  
  2073. One of the more useful breeds of kubrows. When not in combat it will dig, giving you up to 3 pickups be it ammo,health,energy and ocasionally credits. It will
  2074. always prioritize on what you need the most: if low on hp it will give more health orbs, if low on energy it will be more energy orbs. Because you cannot make
  2075. the kubrow not attack it will unfortunately spend the majority of its time attacking enemies rather than digging. Its other ability will stun a target while dealing damage to it.
  2076.  
  2077. ===4.2.4 Sunika Kubrow
  2078.  
  2079. Sunika is the "assasination" type of breed, while in reality it will only chase down capture targets at high speed and pinning them to the ground for you to
  2080. safely kill and capture them. Its other ability will stun a target while dealing damage to it.
  2081.  
  2082. ===4.2.5 Chesa Kubrow
  2083.  
  2084. The carrier kubrow. When not in combat it will destroy crates, pick up its loot and drop it near you. When in combat it will pick the loot dropped by enemies
  2085. and bring it to you. Just like Sahasa kubrows it suffers from attacking more than doing its job. Can only carry a finite number of loot and has a cooldown on
  2086. the ability. Its other ability will disarm enemies.
  2087.  
  2088.  
  2089. ==4.2.6 Helminth Charger
  2090.  
  2091. Infested Kubrow Charger thing.
  2092. How to get it: http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Helminth_Charger
  2093. Ugly looking motherfucker that's actually the most damaging of the dogs (but still shit for damage). Can reach immense horse-like sizes with the Strain mod set,
  2094. but otherwise mostly useless. In combat, it has a charge ability that knocks down an enemy, and a ranged grab ability like Ancients have.
  2095.  
  2096.  
  2097. ================
  2098. ==4.3 Kavats:
  2099.  
  2100. The 2nd animal companion to come out.
  2101. > HOW DO I GET CATS?
  2102. Kavats are another kind of RNG cancer only DE is capable of.
  2103. The basics are:
  2104.  
  2105. >Get segment from hyekka masters as a drop or research in dojo
  2106. >Recipe requires a new item that's basically cat DNA.
  2107. >Scan (invisible) Feral Kavats in Derelict missions with a chance to get said item, shittiest drop rate possible. You'll be lucky to see 4 Feral Kavats per mission,
  2108. and luckier still to get more than a single Genetic Code.
  2109. >After getting 10 and building the Segment you can now breed cats.
  2110. >Kavat recipe is another 10 DNA and a power core.
  2111. >Every possible grind and wait time is skippable by plat.
  2112.  
  2113. ===4.3.1 Adarza Kavat
  2114.  
  2115. The Adarza kavat will sometimes substantially increase your group's crit chance for a short duration.
  2116. It will also reflect attacks back at enemies but with more damage.
  2117.  
  2118. ===4.3.2 Smeeta Kavat
  2119.  
  2120. The most useful of the cats.
  2121. Get it if you want to farm shit.
  2122.  
  2123. The Smeeta kavat can become invisible and leave a decoy that attracts enemy fire, similar to Loki's decoy.
  2124. It also gives you random buffs with various durations during missions.
  2125. -Red crits on everything;
  2126. -Double resource pickups and affinity (pray for this);
  2127. -Spawn rare resources from the planet you're on;
  2128. -No energy cost on abilities;
  2129. -Instant reload;
  2130. -Reinforced shields.
  2131.  
  2132. ===4.3.3 Vasca Kavat
  2133.  
  2134. Vampire cat, can revive you when you're bleeding out, doesn't have much else going for it. DE managed to make the cat grind even worse by requiring you to:
  2135. >breed one of the other cats first
  2136. >wander the Plains of Eidolon at night until you find one
  2137. >watch as the cats autistically dodge one another's attacks, hoping the wild vampire will land a hit on your cat before yours kills it
  2138. >if it finally hits your cat, yours will glow red and become infected.
  2139. >now haul ass back to the gate before something downs your cat, as this will render all prior effort pointless
  2140. >take a genetic imprint from your cat (a single-use, plat-only item which can be used only a limited number of times per pet), removing the virus from it
  2141. >do all of the above again, because you need two imprints. Trying to generate a Vasca with only one imprint won't work and will always give an Adarza or Smeeta.
  2142. >finally you are ready to complete the genetic code grind as above and begin incubation
  2143. >Once again, every grind and wait time in this sequence is skippable by plat.
  2144.  
  2145. ================
  2146. ==4.4 MOAs:
  2147.  
  2148. MOA pets were added with the Fortuna update. They're the 1st modular companions we have and aren't currently very useful.
  2149. Despite being robotic pets you can still use "Link" mods and Medi-Pet Kit on them.
  2150. To build a MOA you need 4 different components:
  2151. Model (head)- this determines what mod precepts it comes with. It's also the only part that gives Mastery Rank once you gild it.
  2152. Core (ass)- modifies base stats (hp/shields/armor)
  2153. Gyro (frontal appearance)- like the Core this also modifies base stats.
  2154. Bracket (legs)- determines the polarities your MOA will have.
  2155.  
  2156. Even though every model comes with its own precept mods, after you craft one you can use their mods in any other MOA you build.
  2157.  
  2158.  
  2159. ================
  2160. ==5. Archwing ==
  2161. ================
  2162.  
  2163.  
  2164. =======
  2165. Since there aren't that many archwing mods to begin with, all of them use the same mods pretty much.
  2166.  
  2167. As of a recent update, all archwings can blink, meaning that there is now almost no reason to use anything other than Amesha.
  2168.  
  2169. =======
  2170.  
  2171.  
  2172. ===5.1 Amesha
  2173. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Amesha
  2174.  
  2175. Tank Archwing, go-to for Railjack content
  2176.  
  2177. 1 turns you invulnerable for a limited number of hits, spam this and you'll live forever
  2178. 2 spawns a big shield bubble that can supposedly heal things (finicky and not very effective)
  2179. 3 renders you immune to status and slows enemies, but more importantly it drains a massive amount of energy which is important for your 4
  2180. 4 turns you invulnerable as long as your energy is below max. Not as useful as it sounds because high-level RJ enemies will
  2181. fill your entire energy pool in one hit, breaking the invuln and killing you with the next shot before you know what happened.
  2182.  
  2183.  
  2184. ===5.2 Elytron
  2185. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Elytron
  2186.  
  2187. Heavy Artillery/Bombardment archwing.
  2188. Offensive archwing that sets up big damage zones and blows shit up.
  2189. Also very tanky, but not enough to last long in Railjack.
  2190.  
  2191. 1 fires a stinger that will latch on to the nearest target, but you have to manually detonate.
  2192. 2 is flares, basically. Interrupts enemy homing weapons.
  2193. 3 fires a dumbfire missile that you manually detonate for a high-duration barrage around that point.
  2194. 4 fires a reticle-following nuke that detonates on impact, doing relatively high damage over a wide area and flinging enemies away.
  2195.  
  2196. ===5.3 Itzal
  2197. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Itzal
  2198.  
  2199. Stealth/support archwing
  2200. Can zipline around, provide stealth for group, and pull loot/enemies in.
  2201.  
  2202. 1 is Valkyr's ripline. Like that ability, it is minimally useful.
  2203. 2 turns you invisible as long as you hold still, OK for star chart AW but useless for RJ or open worlds.
  2204. 3 creates a black hole that sucks in enemies and loot. This is your bread and butter for farming AW mods.
  2205. 4 deploys drones that will shoot lasers at things for you as long as you're not moving fast or invisible. Since the whole point of Itzal is to
  2206. move fast and be invisible, this is rather stupid.
  2207.  
  2208.  
  2209. ===5.4 Odonata
  2210. http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/Odonata
  2211.  
  2212. The first archwing you get, mix of defense and offense
  2213.  
  2214. 1 spawns a frontal shield that absorbs damage and buffs damage when fired through.
  2215. 2 drops flares to neutralize enemy projectiles.
  2216. 3 launches a bunch of homing missiles.
  2217. 4 creates a big aoe blast that pushes back enemies and immobilizes them for a while.
  2218.  
  2219. Has a prime version, with better health and shields.
  2220.

  2226. How to easily level up shit:
  2227.  
  2228. >Kill stealing is a public service.
  2229. http://i.imgur.com/hpCMU9G.png
  2230.  
  2231. Sechura(Pluto)/ Akkad(Eris)/ Seimeni(Ceres)/ Hydron(Sedna) depending what you want to level up or want resources along with it,
  2232. Dark Sectors give additional affinity bonuses to your weapons and have increased drop rates.
  2233. Hydron is currently the favoured place by many to level up stuff in.
  2234.  
  2235. With the release of Sanctuary Onslaught(SO) and the Elite version (ESO) many people also go there for affinity/focus.
  2236. Akkad is very easy, safe and fast for warframe and secondary leveling. Sit on top of the crates or on the container up above the cryopod and safely shoot them.
  2237.  
  2238. If you want to do any of the above places with an unranked frame at least put on a Vitality or something.
  2239.  
  2240. ========================
  2241. ==7. Other useful shit==
  2242. ========================
  2243.  
  2244. Tips and tricks to make your grinding experience a little more enjoyable
  2245.  
  2246. => Go fast or go solo.
  2247. => Kill stealing is a public service.
  2248. => Use https://tenno.tools/ to check for Alerts, Daily/Weekly Nightwave challenges, active invasions, void trader appearances, synthesis target progress etc
  2249. => You can skip the liset/jumping out of the vent entry scene by tapping space twice
  2250. => You can skip the 10 second "returning to liset" timer by tapping space if you are playing Solo
  2251. => Ciphers are keybound to Y
  2252. => You can turn the corpus ciphers the other way by pressing right click
  2253. => To maximize the energy you get from rage on high hp frames, equip the dragon key that reduces your shields
  2254. => Arsenal keybinds: Y to open up your mods
  2255. => You can disable auto vault over obstacles at options => controls
