    Having to use specific damage types and (urgh) Archguns is better, I suppose, but the boss still relies on putting extra steps between it and its health bar all the same. It's definitely the most fun boss, sadly I got kicked a fair number of times as a newb before I found a group that let me do it for the first time.

    There's a gift of the lotus up for another 10 hours or so which gives 75 wolf creds.
    Lovely bonus if you're short on nitain extracts (like myself).

    Yeah, imo this encounter, even though it's the most chaotic one, is a step in the good direction. No invulnerability phase, you always have to do something, and you really think this thing wants you dead (unlike the Exploiter Orb which you can fall asleep as nothing happens at all).

    I really prefer the Profit Taker over the Exploiter Orb in terms of design. For the second one, nothing in your setup matters (warframe, weapons, consumables ? we don't care, just throw shit at her !), and that's a bit underwhelming for a looter/shooter.

    Yesterday's Devstream was nice. Few changes for Nightwave (including catch-up mechanic, and some changes to be more newcomer-friendly, even though I personally dislike they "nerf" the Elite Weeklies), the new game mode, but the most important... Tennogen and Nyx Deluxe ! <3

K, I'll do something else, go to Everest since it's a low level (1-6). I get in and do basically no damage to the enemies there. K, find out they have a weakness that I have to use. I look up the weakness and find out I don't even have the right mods to create that weakness? On a level 1-6 area? That's when I just close the game.

    Am I missing something? This game doesn't explain anything very well.
    YOu should easily be able to get to lvl 15 areas with no Mods or very little mods with only the starting Weapons. You can also open the Marketplace on your Ship and Buy a LOT of really cheap Weapons for Credits or really low Material cost.

    Ooh, and a Syndana as well. Thanks for the heads up.

    I'm glad to hear someone else say this, since everywhere else I go, it seems like people are always praising the Exploiter Orb fight, which I personally found to be way more tedious. Getting the right weapons/frame/archgun set up for Profit Taker can take awhile, but once you are all set up and know the mechanics, it's a much faster and more straight forward fight than Exploiter. Having to face a small army of Corpus at the same time is kind of annoying, and a bit less immersive than if it was just the boss by itself, but since PT's mechanics are so straight foreword, they're kind of the only thing that really adds any challenge to the fight at all, unfortunately.

    Damn guys, I haven't played in 6 months and everything's changed. Anyone have a good explanation of the nightwave stuff? Shit I still havent gotten around to do the fortuna stuff.

    It replaces the old mission specials and makes them world-wide and weekly.

    With some daily missions you can do anywhere, such as paint your sigil, do an emote, pick up 8 mods, mark 4 mods or resources, kill 150 enemies with electricity damage,. various stuff.

    Each nightwave "reputation level" is 10k reputation.
    Up to 30 levels, after which you get prestige levels which each give 15 wolf creds - those you can spend on her inventory list of items and blueprints.

    each task gives 1k, 3k or 5k reputation, and every week there's enough for about 30k, plus random spawns in missions.

    hope that's short enough - but there's plenty more.

    @bbr already summarized the whole thing, but basically this is a kind of "season pass". There is 43k standing available per week, and this "Season 1" is planned to end on 15th of May. So unfortunately if you just start now, you won't be able to go further rank 10 or so.

    After that a second season should start, with some improvements (catch-up mechanics, fewer missions, shorter missions...).

    None of this reflects my experience. I'll have to look into it again because I seem to definitely be missing something.

    You should definitely switch out the MK1 weapons you start with for their normal variants on the marketplace. Make sure you max out their level before you get rid of the MK1s though, as they still count towards mastery experience.

    https://warframe.fandom.com/wiki/Market/Weapons

    Scroll through this list, you will see some have a Platinum cost and others have a Credit Cost. If you go to the Marketplace and click the Tab for Primary/Secondary/Melee Weapons and make sure to untick the "Show Blueprints only" box at the bottom, you should be able to find a range of Credit bought Weapons.

    You can also purchase the Blueprints for Weapons that require very little Materials in the same way.

    Hopefully, they listened to feedback. There are pro's to the new system but a lot of people say it as a chore and got burnt out by it.

    Personally, I just threw my hands up by week 3 and went back to playing the game as before.

    It's a great source of nitain extract ^.^

    They have listened to feedback...supposedly. Here's a brief summary of some of the changes they plan on implementing for Series 2.

    Probably the best change they plan on making, besides removing/reducing some of the more annoying challenges, is allowing challenges to carry over between weeks. If you've completed all of the weekly or elite challenges, any you missed previously will become available again.

    The plague star event has returned.

    So, if you're running it you can get 1 free, fully made forma per run.
    Time to stock up on those for the next 10 months ^^

    Also, nightware intermission for a few weeks.

    The cinematic was cool.

    Duviri Paradox speculation (spoilers for The War Within) could that be dad, trapped in the void? Or is that just us after temporal shenanigans?
