Warframe

I’d like to see more thralls spawn. That alone would improve the grind.

None of the Kuva Weapons appealed to me much, so it wasn't too hard to avoid the lich thing altogether. If they ever add Corpus liches those weapons would probably be more attractive.

Quite significant changes just announced and coming soonish - removal of self damage, changes to status, a refund of railjack costs, reworking arcanes ... There's a write up here

I know alot of people are bitching about it, but I'm actually optimistic about pretty much all the changes. I know it'll mean changing builds, some drastically, but i have hopes that it will actually make more frames and weapons usable.

Talk of rewarding skill and making anything more difficult always gives me pause, because I definitely passed my peak reflexes age some years ago and I worry there will be a day when I just can't play Warframe. But it'll probably be fine, Warframe is always changing and in a few months I won't even notice the changes this patch did.

seeing that the skill recovery only seems to apply to former self damage weapons, it's not gonna be something that you have deal with if you don't want to as far as skill goes. and for the shield gating, we're trying for weak point shots anyway so it's not adding much additional difficulty really.

Considering the disparity in eHP between warframes and higher level enemies such as corrupted, I never felt the way self-damage was implemented made a lot of sense (even compromising your loadout with a maxed cautious shot mod you could do fatal damage to some warframes). I'm not unhappy that it's going away although I appreciate tactics that relied on self-damage are going to be effectively removed from the game, and that won't please everyone.

I haven't been playing warframe as much lately, only logging in when I could play co-op with a friend, but last night (after saying I was content to avoid the lich grind!) I ended up mercy killing a larvaling. The good news is that it was a Kuva Bramma, one of the few weapons that might be worth it. The bad news is that it's only a 31% heat roll, I was on Wisp at the time.

We did the farm for the first murmur. Yeah, I can confirm it's tedious. He's confined to Europa though, so I can ignore him for a bit if I want.

Edit: And it's done, I got lucky part way into the third murmur and managed to guess the sequence. The Kuva Bramma is fun and quite mad, but I don't think there are any other kuva weapons that interest me enough to repeat the process.

I quit out, early, on an ESO run because someone was running, what must have been, a radiation Bramma... self-damages themselves, and with the rad-proc, they kept killing teammates.

I’m looking forward to the removal of self-damage... even with all the cries of “RIP Chroma”

I bet all the Chroma's had microscopic pangs of glitch-guilt as they threw there ninja stars into their own feet. They had their time.

anyone want to get together and run the new event together? the rewards seem worth it.

I’ve been able to run several full 17-runs of ground assault.

Good group composition:

Limbo - max duration, standard range, strength, and efficiency - are super-helpful in protection the OpLinks. Pop 4 & 2 when it’s time to drop the OpLinks. If you have a Zaw with Exodia Contagion, you can still help out with DPS, even while rifted.

A Mesa, or 2, are good for killing off the spawns.

A Rhino (or Mirage, if it’s daytime), are good DPS agents, for hitting the Condrix.
