They seem pretty common in the Void, if you got someone to taxi you there that would probably work. The community seems pretty supportive of new players for things like this, at least on PC. I'm good for it if you're on PC.

Not a bad idea, and as a PC player that should be easy enough

Bah, my mind apparently drifted off after I read 'Rhino' and I missed the part about you needing control mods. It's only 12:30 and I swear I feel like I've been at work for a solid week.

Looks like my warframe username is danjool. Hit me up and we'll find some modules.

Before playing Warframe I'd have found someone saying that absolutely insufferable. Now ... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah I was looking for a good place to farm affinity last night. Seems the defense on Saturn (Helene) is a decent spot until I get to Sedna later. But then there was mention of farming focus, a resource I'd never heard of yet. That took me down a Google rabbit hole. Wow there is so much to this game.

Anyway Saturn worked well in a run to wave 15 last night with pubs. Finally maxed my starting Skana and sold it.

Also finally bought some plat and Warframe slots. Tried out Oberon first, maybe will do Mag too this weekend. Got Oberon Prime recipe in a relic mission recently so thought I should see if I like the basic before pursuing the parts.

I’ve done the Saturn, Jupiter, and Ceres (pretty sure I’m thinking of Ceres) defences for maxing out frames, and weapons (minimum gear loadouts to minimize the xp split) - I just really like the Jupiter map. It makes quite a difference if you’re using the “suggested” weapon type (+X% xp on kills).

I’ve watched a guy do Spy missions to grind out tons of affinity VERY fast - if you get in the vaults undetected you get triple the affinity payout. You’re in-and-out in a couple minutes. He was leveling weapons without firing a shot.

Ooh, I have a neat tip for Oberon, it took a while for me to really find the niche I liked with him, he felt a bit underpowered before I stumbled upon a good mod setup. I'll spoiler it in case you prefer to self discover:

Spoiler:

Oberon pairs very well with Hunter Adrenaline. If you stack on as many armour mods as you can, and buff his health but importantly not his shields, you can get a feedback loop going with his third ability, Renewal. Normally, it's a fairly potent regen, but can drain your energy quickly if you're not careful with it.

With Hunter Adrenaline, any damage you take to health is converted to energy. With Renewal active, any hit you take will be rapidly healed, giving you a net energy gain and essentially making you near invulnerable to anything that can't burst you down very quickly while recharging your energy at the same time, which then gives you plenty of juice to keep Hallowed Grounds running as well to further buff your armour and make you immune to those bloody Ancient tethers.

It's perfect for survival or any other high intensity missions, particularly if you need to lock down an area or otherwise not move much, and it's great solo, where you're attracting all the aggro you need to charge up your batteries.

That's a nice idea. Looks like that mod isn't available right now, but the normal

Spoiler:

Rage

is. I'll have to keep an eye out.

Definitely noticed burning through energy too easy on Oberon. Tried Mag a bit last night and this morning and she is interesting. Still haven't got to the final power but the combo on 2/3 is a neat idea. Probably going to have energy issues with her though too.

Having Trinity Prime as a free starting frame has just spoiled me I guess. Never run out of energy.

Maxed out and sold a few more weapons yesterday. Crafting new stuff now. It's pretty fun how differently the weapons play, in particular all the various melee styles. Reminds me of Monster Hunter a little bit, how changing the weapon you use makes the game feel fresh.

Is anybody else playing on Switch? Haven't seen friends online this week, and didn't know if anyone else needed clan access? We have a decent amount of low mastery weapon blueprints available now.

MR7!

That test was actually tough.

I just hit MR11 and yes, I find the tests do start to get a bit tricky.

I've stated making a habit of practicing the tests until I complete them 3 times in a row then doing the actual test.

Yeah I started doing one practice at MR4, when I actually figured out where the practice was haha.

Anybody else read about the roadmap for 2019? Holy crap, among other things like a revamped melee system, we're getting co-op ship combat!

That's the 2nd part of the Fortuna update. There's video of the game play of it from the last TennoCon.

That's the next major update "Rail Jack" I believe they were calling it. Fortuna 2 is out and included the new Ediolon type encounters (although supposedly pretty different). However, yes I do believe the Ship combat is coming next.

Chairkicker and I ran into each other in the Switch dojo last night. Adding more labs finally.

Looks like we're out of power though. I'm going to have to add on a t junction or something and build another reactor, then maybe demo and move the old reactor. We just don't quite have enough space/power for all the labs. Need like 2 more doors and 15 power or so.

Guess we'll get there eventually. But for now the tenno lab has a ton of useful weapons and other recipes for below MR8.

I’ve been playing Nova so much, I’ve forgotten how to play my other frames...

I’ve been clearing out my blue diamonds - I think I have one Defection left on Uranus (Oh Cephalon, I hate Defections...), and most of Neptune and Pluto are clear.

After much research, I’ve made a list of all the Frames, and where/how to get them. Bought all the Clan-available ones - easy-peezy. Currently cooking - Banshee, Equinox Night Aspect, Hydroid, Nezha, Zephyr, and Wukong (quite a Nitain-sink, this one). Failed to get Chroma Prime’s System BP out of either of my 2 Radiant Axi Relics - and as a further insult, bronze item... both times

Spent some time running Spy missions on Pluto - trying for Ivara parts... boy, that is an exercise in frustration - in over an hour’s time (between 1 and 2 hrs) I got one copy of the Ivara BP... that’s it... the other guy that stuck around (after he noticed that I was hitting “Repeat Mission”) already had the BP - he needed the neuroptic. We even had a Rhino stick around for several re-runs (the other 2 of us were using Limbo, for the laser-immunities). It was mostly: me running to A (sometimes getting out with no alarm), the other Limbo on B (rarely set off the alarm), and one or both of us getting to C (Rhino popped the alarms... often). Getting out with only one alarm, or no alarm at all got me from 0 to 30 on an MR Fodder dagger, and almost 0-30 on another weapon... spys pay out so much affinity, if you can manage no alarm... so much.

I’ll be back on tonight for a couple hours, I might continue on my Ivara quest... we’ll see.
