  2. ========================
  3.  
  4. 0. WHAT
  5. -------
  6.  
  7. For those difficulties not covered by the original pastebin that
  8. people always ask the thread about. These are questions that have
  9. been asked loads of times and the answers. If there's something wrong
  10. in this pastebin reply to the thread's OP and it'll be fixed.
  11.  
  12.  
  13. 1. GENERAL
  14. ----------
  15.  
  16. I PICKED THE WRONG STARTING FRAME. WHAT THE FUCK CAN I DO ABOUT IT?
  17. Nothing. You'll have to make a new account or suck it up until
  18. you can build/buy a new Frame.
  19.  
  20. WHAT SHOULD I USE MY 50 PLAT ON? THOSE SCARVES LOOK PRETTY KICK ASS.
  21. Spend them on slots, they're the only thing that can't be farmed
  22. or achieved through Alerts. If you're not sure if you'll need
  23. them (Pro-tip: you're wrong), save it until you find something
  24. that's worth it.
  25.  
  26. MAN, FUCK THIS SHIT! I'M GONNA BUY SOME REVIVES WITH MY PLAT.
  27. Don't ever do this. Ever. Don't trust me? Ask the general;
  28. I dare you. I double-dare you, motherfucker.
  29.  
  30. THEN I'LL GO BUY SOME MODS IN THE MARKET FOR FUCK'S SAKE!
  31. Whatever you do, don't buy the Mod Packs. Trust me.
  32. http://pastebin.com/vLTf4BWZ
  33. http://imgur.com/a/GIDga
  34.  
  35. ALRIGHT, I'LL BUY SLOTS. WHERE THE FUCK ARE THEY?
  36. Menu -> Equipment -> Inventory -> Buy Slots -> ??? -> Profit
  37. Be sure to get both slots for Frames and Weapons.
  38.  
  39. WHAT THE FUCK IS A POTATO?
  40. Orokin Catalysts and Reactors. They look like potatoes.
  41. The Orokin Cells also look like reversed potatoes too.
  42.  
  43. MY EYES ARE BLEEDING FROM ALL THE LIGHT AND SATURATION!
  44. Turn off Bloom, Color Correction, and any other option in
  45. the settings that can cause heavy retinal damage.
  46.  
  47. THE FUCKING SHIP TALKING IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!
  48. You can mute Ordis' volume in the audio options.
  49. It's also possible to turn off the radio scanner too.
  50.  
  51. SO THE POINT OF THIS GAME IS TO FARM WHILE FARMING TO FARM EVEN MORE?
  52. Yes.
  53.  
  54. I THOUGHT I WAS FREE, BUT I CAME BACK. WHAT KIND OF SHIT DID I MISS?
  55. I don't know either, but here's a recap of the updates:
  56. https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/356275-welcome-back
  57.  
  58.  
  59. 2. BUILDING
  60. -----------
  61.  
  62. SHOULD I BUILD THIS [WEAPON NAME]?
  63. Don't build something just because it's the flavor of the month.
  64. The point of this game is to kill enemies as efficiently and quickly
  65. as possible. If you know the weapon can't do that, then don't waste
  66. your time and materials on it.
  67.  
  68. WHY CAN'T I BUILD MY FUCKING AFURIS / DUAL WEAPONS?
  69. You need to pick the Furis you want to build it with. Click on
  70. the Furis icons on the blueprint and select the ones you want to
  71. use to build the Afuris. Yes, this does mean you need to have at
  72. least two Furis to build.
  73.  
  74. SO I JUST NEED THE FRAME'S BLUEPRINT FROM THE SHOP TO BUILD THAT SHIT?
  75. No. The master Blueprint from the shop requires a Helmet, Chassis, &
  76. Systems. To get the blueprints for each, you'll have to farm the
  77. respective boss/area. Get ready to farm (because that's all you're
  78. going to do anyways).
  79.  
  80. HOLY FUCK! IT TAKES HALF A DAY TO BUILD THIS SHIT?
  81. Yes. Some things take even longer (up to three days for a full
  82. Frame and 3 hours for each of its components).
  83.  
  84. CAN I TRY THAT TRANSMUTATION THING TO MY MODS?
  85. Don't try this feature unless you're made out of Credits.
  86. It's basically sacrificing multiple Mods to possibly get a higher
  87. ranked one. And knowing this game, RNG will fuck you over if you do.
  88.  
  89. THERE'S CLAN-ONLY SHIT I COULD BUILD?
  90. U8 added 3 new materials which are needed in acquiring tech you
  91. get from the clan. Those samples are also used in building the
  92. blueprints you get from the research.
  93.  
  94. WHY THE FUCK DOES MY CLAN HAVE NOTHING?
  95. First, you'd need the rooms pertaining to those weapons if they
  96. haven't yet. You need to donate materials to the labs to start the
  97. progress of each. Just go up to a closed door or inside a lab to
  98. contribute from there. Or you can just join a clan which has everything.
  99. Once they're finished, you can copy the Blueprint for an amount of Credits.
  100.  
  101. WHAT THE FUCK ARE THOSE ARCH-WING THINGS? I WANT ONE!
  102. If you know how to build a Frame, then you know how this process
  103. works by now. You'll at least get your first set by a given quest.
  104.  
  105.  
  106. 3. ITEMS
  107. --------
  108.  
  109. WHICH GUN IS THE BEST?
  110. Due to power-creeping, most older weapons are innately more inferior
  111. to most newer guns which basically have the same output. The newest
  112. stuff the game puts out are usually the better option these days.
  113.  
  114. MAN, I FUCKING LOVE [MELEE WEAPON OF CHOICE]! ARE THOSE WEAPONS ANY GOOD?
  115. They're usually better than the Skana. Just keep in mind that most
  116. melee weapons are just reskins of one another.
  117.  
  118. THAT BURSTON LOOKS COOL. I BET NOBODY'S ASKED ABOUT IT IN THE THREAD!
  119. No. Just stop. Almost everyone hates the Burston and thinks it's
  120. shit. Stop asking, please. If you're still interested, give it a
  121. shot, but if you want a weapon that will definitely be effective
  122. find something else.
  123. But if you're aiming for Burston Prime, then go for it.
  124.  
  125. THEN HOW ABOUT THOSE FUCK-AWESOME BOWS?
  126. Read above statement. They got a buff, but the answer is the same.
  127. Just replace every word of "Burston" to "Paris" to be precise.
  128. The same could be said for most weapons that have low fire-rates.
  129.  
  130. WHAT CONSUMABLE SHIT SHOULD I BRING ON MISSIONS?
  131. That depends on the mission you're doing.
  132. Most of the time, you won't even bother with those things.
  133. Still, Energy restores will sometimes come in handy.
  134.  
  135. PEOPLE SAY THOSE AURA MODS ARE USEFUL. THE FUCK ARE THEY?
  136. Artifacts now fit in their own separate Mod slot.
  137. They function like other Mods that can be upgraded
  138. & equipped. They also increase your Frame's Mod
  139. capacity, so you should always have one equipped.
  140.  
  141. NOW THERE'S THIS NEW EXILUS MODS BULLSHIT!
  142. They're just the utility Mods we've had since then, like Rush.
  143. The only difference is that they have their own slot now,
  144. which you'll have to pay for Plat or have RNGesus bless you.
  145.  
  146.  
  147. 4. FARMING
  148. ----------
  149.  
  150. FUCK ME, THIS SHIT IS EXPENSIVE. WHERE CAN I FARM CREDITS?
  151. Special Alerts are good. The higher level a planet is, the more
  152. credits you'll receive at the end of the mission. Pluto is your
  153. best bet at this point. Void is also a pretty good credit source.
  154.  
  155. I WANT TO FARM [RARE MATERIAL], WHERE SHOULD I GO?
  156. Go to the Void. Soon you will be just drowning in that shit.
  157. Or just farm the respective bosses by hovering over each planet.
  158.  
  159. I WANT TO FARM EXPERIENCE, WHERE SHOULD I GO?
  160. Survival missions are your main source of this if you can keep up
  161. with the scaling. Both are more lucrative than MD is now, and they
  162. seem to have more parties going too. Draco is another favorite.
  163.  
  164. I STILL NEED SOME EXTRA PAIR OF HANDS FARMING THIS SHIT!
  165. The Extractors can be used on planets that you have fully covered on
  166. for some extra materials while you're on missions, or just away in
  167. general.
  168.  
  169. WHAT IF I'M ALREADY SWIMMING IN ALL THE BLUEPRINTS AND MATERIALS I WANT?
  170. With materials you can make random shit in your clan's dojo.
  171. You can also currently trade prime weapon parts, prime blueprints and
  172. mods to other players
  173.  
  174. BUT WHAT IF I DON'T NEED THE FUCKING PLATINUM AS WELL?
  175. There's a Void Trader that comes every now and then that sells
  176. rare equipment, like Primed version of the Mods. You can only
  177. trade with him if you have Ducats (Which are a currency traded
  178. in the Relay hubs by exchanging Prime parts).
  179.  
  180.  
  181. 5. ENEMIES & COMBAT
  182. -------------------
  183.  
  184. THE FUCK DID THEY DO TO MELEE NOW?
  185. Melee weapons now have a separate slot for Stance Mods.
  186. Yes, they need to be farmed. Each Stance gives different
  187. combo patterns for each weapon, but the variety is limited.
  188. Here are some useful tips:
  189. https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/219100-how-to
  190. https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/211324-stance-combo
  191.  
  192. I HAVE A STANCE MOD EQUIPPED, BUT MY MELEE WEAPON IS STILL SHIT!
  193. Melee now also gives a counter for successful attacks so it could
  194. scale with enemies. It can be toggled to focus all your attacks on
  195. channeling, to add damage from energy.
  196. Check the options on which key you bound the melee toggle button.
  197. Don't ask us if it's still shit. You can figure it out yourself.
  198.  
  199. I SHOOT FUCKING YELLOW AND RED NUMBERS. DOES THIS MEAN I'M THE BEST?
  200. Those are criticals. Yellows are minor crits and red are major
  201. crits. You can get Mods to increase your crit chance and damage.
  202.  
  203. JESUS CHRIST. WHAT THE FUCK CAN I DO AGAINST ALL THESE GRINDERS/DOGS?
  204. Get fast/good. Or die.
  205.  
  206. TEACH ME YOUR SECRETS TO BE FAST THEN...
  207. Macros are seen to be both good and bad, depending on the person
  208. you're asking it to. DE says it's alright, but they say a lot of things.
  209. But if you're good enough, you don't need crutches to go fast.
  210.  
  211. WHY THE FUCK ARE THERE MORE THAN 4 PEOPLE IN THIS ONE MISSION?
  212. Someone just used up a Tenno Specter. They are AI controlled Warframes
  213. that mimics the equipment of the person who used it, depending on the
  214. choice of Frame used. Yes, they're a one-time use and a bitch to farm
  215. and craft. That's your choice if you think it's useful.
  216.  
  217. WHAT ARE THOSE RED ICONS BELOW MY FRAME'S STATUS?
  218. Those are the 3 main damage dealers in the game: Impact, Puncture & Slash.
  219. If you see them on your HUD, you're currently under their effects.
  220. Puncture lowers lowers the damage you deal, Slash bleeds you, and Impact is impact.
  221.  
  222. WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY SCREEN AND WHERE THE FUCK DID MY ENERGY GO?
  223. You just got hit by a Disruptor. They're the big tentacle Infested.
  224. When they hit you, they drain all your Energy.
  225. There are also new laser doors that do the same thing, so be careful.
  226. While your screen is still fucked, do not pick up Energy balls from
  227. the floor, you'll use them up and you'll get no Energy.
  228.  
  229. WHY IS EVERYTHING GREEN AND WHERE THE FUCK DID MY HEALTH GO?
  230. You just got hugged by a Toxic Infested. Poison damage goes through
  231. shields, stay away from them. Rhino's Iron Skin gives you protection
  232. from them, if you didn't know.
  233.  
  234. WHY THE FUCK ARE MY SHIELDS KEEP ON DEPLETING?
  235. If you're playing against Corpus, you're getting leached. There
  236. are green Ospreys that shoot leeches at you. To shake them off,
  237. roll or do a melee attack.
  238. There are also new Corpus machinery that would drain your shields,
  239. like a static grenade on the ground emitting an AoE halo.
  240.  
  241. OH WHAT THE FUCK. I CAN'T TELEPORT, BUT I DID! WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
  242. Grineer Commanders can switch teleport with you.
  243. If not, then it's just your friendly neighborhood Loki.
  244.  
  245. I'M SHOOTING THEM IN THE HEAD BUT IT DON'T DO SHIT.
  246. Infested and Corpus have different weakpoints. Infested have various
  247. spots for weaknesses & Walkers have balls weakness.
  248. Or just read about Damage 2.0 if they don't do anything.
  249.  
  250. WHY THE FUCK IS THAT ENEMY GLOWING ORANGE?
  251. Certain enemies have special abilities that would more or less
  252. fuck you over. It could be anything from slow auras to buff nullification.
  253.  
  254. MAN, FUCK THESE LASER BEAMS! WHY CAN'T I JUST WALK THROUGH THEM?
  255. Shoot cameras or copter through them. As long as there's a camera
  256. pointing at someone in the map, the laser beams will be up. Make sure
  257. you always shoot cameras in the room you're in so that your teammates
  258. aren't left behind trying to get through. There's a Mod for that
  259. shit now too just in case you're that bad.
  260. And don't pass through the orange laser doors if you need your Energy.
  261.  
  262. THIS WEAPON IS SHIT, EVERYONE SAID IT WAS AWESOME. FUCK THIS!
  263. Stop evaluating weapons right after you buy them. Of course your
  264. brand new level 1 weapon won't do much against those level 50
  265. Grineer that are probing your anus. Patience. Potato, Multishot,
  266. Damage+ on your weapon goes a long way. And now there's Forma!
  267. Turn any shitty weapon you love into a death delivery service!
  268.  
  269.  
  270. 6. OROKIN
  271. --------------
  272.  
  273. WHAT THE FUCK IS THE VOID?
  274. They're only accessible through the use of Void keys.
  275. Each key can be acquired from any mission that isn't Assassinate.
  276. The keys range from each mission type, and functions as consumables.
  277.  
  278. THERE'S AN INFESTED VERSION OF THIS?
  279. Orokin Derelicts are run-down ships by the Infested, and home for a boss.
  280. They also have special vaults that could only be opened by Dragon Keys,
  281. which acts as inventory items with debuffs.
  282. And here's an in-depth view on those vaults:
  283. https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/498454-guide
  284.  
  285. WHAT DO I GET FROM THIS SHIT?
  286. Various kinds of special rewards. Prime blueprint parts,
  287. Prime weapon parts, Forma, Void-only materials, etc.
  288. You also get the Corrupted Mods in the Derelict versions.
  289.  
  290. I STEPPED ON SOMETHING AND IT CLICKED. WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED.
  291. The areas are filled with traps and treasure. Make sure you look
  292. around whenever you're doing these secret missions.
  293.  
  294. THIS IS TIERED?
  295. Yes, you currently have 4 tiers. T2 T3 and T4 are what people look
  296. for when farming items. T1 is pretty worthless, feel free to
  297. have fun in those. It should be noted that only tier 3 and 4 void have bombards
  298. and nullifiers.
  299.  
  300. WHAT THE FUCK! ARE THESE JUST RESKINS?
  301. Yes, but in addition, Prime weapons have extra Polarity slots
  302. or better stats. But if you're talking about the enemies, then
  303. the answer is still yes.
  304.  
  305. ARE THE VAULTS FUCKING NECESSARY TO BEGIN WITH?
  306. If you want to min-max some Frame abilities to their maximum,
  307. then yes. Just be wary that Corrupted Mods can also render
  308. a build useless if used wrong, and that you'll end up with
  309. negative output.
  310.  
  311. THE KEYS ARE A PAIN TO BRING. ARE THERE ANY ALTERNATIVES?
  312. Pro-tip: Bring a Loki. If it still works, that is.
  313.  
  314.  
  315. 7. SYNDICATES
  316. ----------------
  317.  
  318. WHAT NEW THING IS THIS NOW? I THOUGHT WE'RE OUT OF BETA!
  319. They act like factions that you can join with exclusive missions.
  320. Each one has separate rewards and offerings needed, so choose wisely.
  321. You can join one as soon as you reach Mastery Rank 3.
  322. And no, this game will never leave Alpha/Beta/Whatever stage.
  323.  
  324. WHAT'S THE HIGHEST RANK I CAN ACHIEVE?
  325. There are 8 ranks, Rank 5 being the highest.
  326. It goes from -2 to 5. Yes, that's a negative.
  327.  
  328. WHY THE FUCK AM I NOT GETTING STANDING POINTS?
  329. You need to wear your Syndicate's Sigil to earn any.
  330.  
  331. I JUST GOT SOME SHINY EXIMUS SHIT WHEN I RANKED UP!
  332. They're like the Tenno Specters that were previously introduced.
  333. Only this time, each rank you gain will allow you to summon
  334. a specific enemy type to aid you in missions.
  335. Also, you have to cough up your Standing points to do so.
  336.  
  337. WHICH ONE IS THE BEST SYNDICATE?
  338. What's the best covenant in Dark Souls? You tell me.
  339. Each faction has their own enemy. Keep that in mind.
  340.  
  341. WHAT ARE THESE "ENEMIES" THEN?
  342. They send random AI assassins to kill you.
  343. Just think of it as another random event like Stalker.
  344.  
  345.  
  346. 8. OTHERS
  347. -------
  348.  
  349. THERE'S A PVP GAME MODE NOW? THE FUCK IS HAPPENING?
  350. Nothing. Conclave is exactly what it is: Forced PvP in
  351. game centered around PvE. So expect imbalances.
  352. If anything, they already remade and "fixed" this
  353. several times by now.
  354.  
  355. HOLY SHIT! I GOT THIS ALIEN DOG THING IN MY SHIP!
  356. Kubrows are space dogs.
  357. Since it would take too long to explain, have this:
  358. https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/417606-kubrow
  359.  
  360. I CAN MEET OTHER TENNO AND ERP WITH THEM IN HUBS NOW?
  361. Yes, you can. There's also a creepy salesman that comes
  362. every now and then that would sell you rare equipment in
  363. those Relay hubs.
  364.  
  365. ARE THESE SOLAR RAILS ANOTHER GRIND AGAIN?
  366. It's the Dark Sectors of the game's universe, and the supposed
  367. end-game that's promised. You'll need to research the room in the
  368. Dojo if you ever do want to participate. It's basically a way to
  369. control planet nodes, which gives benefits to your clan and alliances.
  370. You might want to check these out:

  372. https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/241535-dark-sectors-overview
  373.  
  374. WHY THE FUCK DON'T I GET ANYTHING FROM THE SOLAR RAILS?
  375. Players will receive bonus Credits and EXP from these missions,
  376. depending on the owner's tax percentage. The bonus is not active
  377. when the Solar Rail is at war with another one, which you'll have
  378. to choose the side to help.
  379.  
  380.  
  381. 9. MISCELLANEOUS
  382. ----------------
  383.  
  384. I DISCOVERED AN AWESOME BUG! SHOULD I TELL THE FORUMS ABOUT IT?
  385. If it's new, then they probably don't know about
  386. it yet. Just have fun with it and share it with
  387. your fellow friends.
  388.  
  389. WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON, WHY ARE THERE SO MANY BUGS?
  390. DE can't fix their sleek coding for shit.
  391. So you just have to accept it or quit the game.
  392.  
  393. WHO THE FUCK THOUGHT UP THIS TORTURE DEVICE CALLED A CLANLIST?
  394. You can use the 'W' and 'S' keys to scroll through your friends
  395. or clan list.
  396.  
  397. GOD DAMN EMBER IS SO HOT I'M ABOUT TO BUST A NUT OVER HER TOMBOY ASS.
  398. Ember used to be a dude, that's why she looks like a tomboy.
  399.  
  400. I HAVE THE STRANGEST FEELING THAT THERE'S A STORY ABOUT ASH.
  401. And you are correct. Ash used to be the female one this time.
  402. Such a shame he got used to cater to edgy teenagers.
  403.  
  404. WHICH FRAME HAS THE BEST ASS?
  405. The one that suits your sick fetishes the most. Into sweaty
  406. muscle girls? Nyx. Looking for something a little more mature
  407. and gassy? Saryn. Etc.
  408.  
  409. I WANT TO COMMISSION SOME GOOD LEWDS FROM ARTISTS OUT THERE.
  410. Datareaper's your main guy (Which is more or less a miracle that
  411. he's still playing this game). And be sure to share it with everyone.
