Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 3, Week 19

Welcome back, Dreamers.

The Nightwave weekly bounties change every Sunday at 12 midnight GMT (or Monday morning, if that’s your preference), so keep your eyes out every week after that time for our weekly update – letting you know the activities you’ll need to complete for the week (note this will not include daily challenges, of course).

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 13 June / Monday 14 June:

  • Complete 3 Mobile Defense Missions
  • Complete 3 Nightmare Missions of Any Type
  • Complete 8 Zone of Sanctuary Onslaught
  • Unlock 3 Relics
  • Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Orb Vallis
  • Kill 100 Eximus Units (Elite)
  • Defeat a Silver Grove Specter (Elite)

Some Tips

Complete 3 Mobile Defense Missions: Again, an easy one, and definitely one that can be doubled up with Invasion challenges (as Mobile Defence missions are often offered as Invasion mssion types). Can also be combined with Dailies, depending on what they are, so consider them before jumping in.

Complete 3 Nightmare Missions of Any Type: Did you forget about Nightmare missions? I know I did. But this isn’t too hard – just find a mission you’re happy to do and smash it out. Depending on how well equipped you are, it shouldn’t be difficult, but you possibly want to be careful to double dip on things if you are struggling.

Complete 8 Zone of Sanctuary Onslaught: Not difficult, and unlocked fairly early in the Star Chart, so this is accessible to most players. All you need to do is survive long enough to last 8 waves – advanced players can probably do this solo, newer players should enter in public or with friends. And yes, you can knock out some passive kill challenges at the same time! Not only that – you can do this in chunks (i.e., it doesn’t have to be 8 waves in one session).

Unlock 3 Relics: Crack three relics? Seriously? Definitely double this up with a “Complete 3 [mission type] missions if you can, and don’t forget to do it in public so you have a better chance at some good Prime drops!

Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Orb Vallis: Rare gems are actually quite easy to find, so this won’t take too long. You’re more likely to find them in blue veins, but red veins will also have a chance (but only when the small target spawns). Just do a lot of mining, and do your best to be as perfect as possible – and always go for the small target if it’s there.

Kill 100 Eximus Units: A simple challenge at face value, but a pain nonetheless, as Eximus enemies aren’t terribly common, especially at low level. I’d recommend doing a high(ish) level survival, possibly in the Void, and staying for at least 10 mins. You’ll likely knock this out quickly with a couple of runs (or one long run). ESO might be another option.

Defeat a Silver Grove Specter: This is a bit of a pain. Not because the Specters are hard, but because you actively need to seek out the Silver Grove! And not only that – you will need to have prepared your Apothics – so this means that only players that have completed Titania’s Quest (The Silver Grove) will be able to do this one… AND on top of that, it will take up a bunch of time and you won’t really be able to knock out other challenges while doing so… Good luck!

Episode 143 – Devstream 155

With only a few short weeks until TennoCon, this week we were treated to a final Devstream before the big show! From now, the team will go internal to work on what they plan to show off, but before then, there’s still plenty to be excited about, such as an upcoming weapons rework, and the Sisters of Parvos release… 

Topics:

  • News: new Prime Gaming reward, Gara Prime is out, free Booster Pack for PlayStation Plus members
  • Discussion: Devstream 155

Episode Notes:

Finally – there’s a new Prime Gaming reward – if you are subscribed to Amazon Prime Gaming and have linked your Warframe and Twitch accounts, you can get your hands on free customisations every month! 

Have you watched the Gara Prime trailer? If you missed the devstream, then you might have. You really should watch it. 

And yes, of course, this means Gara Prime is out, with her glass hammer and shotgun – you really shouldn’t miss any of these primes. 

PlayStation Plus members can grab a free booster pack, containing Tiberon and the Obsidian Tiberon Skin, a glyph, and emblem, and 100P!

Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 3, Week 17

Welcome back, Dreamers.

The Nightwave weekly bounties change every Sunday at 12 midnight GMT (or Monday morning, if that’s your preference), so keep your eyes out every week after that time for our weekly update – letting you know the activities you’ll need to complete for the week (note this will not include daily challenges, of course).

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 30 May / Monday 31 May:

  •  Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Plains of Eidolon
  • Complete 3 Spy Missions
  • Polarize a Weapon, Companion, or Warframe (not in Simularcrum)
  • Complete 5 Different Bounties in the Orb Vallis
  • Catch 6 Rare Servofish in the Orb Vallis
  • Complete 8 Zones of Elite Sanctuary Onslaught (Elite)
  • Kill Profit-Taker (Elite)

Some Tips

Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Plains of Eidolon: Rare gems are actually quite easy to find, so this won’t take too long. I’d recommend using the Orb Vallis mining tool if you have it. You’re more likely to find them in blue veins, but red veins will also have a chance (but only when the small target spawns). Just do a lot of mining, and do your best to be as perfect as possible – and always go for the small target if it’s there.

Complete 3 Spy Missions: Again, an easy one, and again, one that you might be able to double up on with Invasion missions (if you’re lucky). This will work for ANY Spy mission, so keep an eye on the Sortie as well, because that might tick off one of these if you also need to do a Sortie challenge.

Polarize a Weapon, Companion, or Warframe (not in Simularcrum): Not one that can be doubled up with anything else, and also a challenge that requires players to actually HAVE Forma… 

Complete 5 Different Bounties in the Orb Vallis: Bit of a pain in the butt, this one, but mainly because it’s just time consuming. You can smash out all 5 in a row if you want, or spread them out over the week, but it will definitely take more time than it’s (perhaps) worth.

Catch 6 Rare Servofish in the Orb Vallis: Fishing in the Orb Vallis is somewhat more enjoyable than on the Plains (to me, at least), but it’s harder to catch Rare fish there, sadly. You’re looking for  Tromyzon (found in Ponds, when it’s Cold/Freezing), Charamote, or Synathid (both found in Caves in any temperature). Best to take lures, but some suggest Charamote can spawn without lures if you wait long enough. I have also heard that Longwinders count towards this, but am yet to confirm. Couples very well with the Mine for gems in the Orb Vallis challenge (go mining while waiting on fish spawns).

Complete 8 Zones of Elite Sanctuary Onslaught: There are some great rewards to be gained from ESO – including Radiant Relics, and the Braton and Lato Vandal variants, but lower level players are likely to struggle. Note, though, that this is a great place to also farm focus, and you can also knock out a bunch of kills, including Eximus enemies.

Kill Profit-Taker: Oof. Glad this is an Elite challenge, as it’s not one that many players can actually achieve, particularly lower level players. Still, not only will you be taking down the Profit-Taker Orb, but you’ll also be fighting a bunch of Corpus, so best to combine this one with “Kill XXX number of enemies” challenges (don’t make it too complex, as you will need to concentrate on the Orb fight).

Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 3, Week 16

Welcome back, Dreamers.

The Nightwave weekly bounties change every Sunday at 12 midnight GMT (or Monday morning, if that’s your preference), so keep your eyes out every week after that time for our weekly update – letting you know the activities you’ll need to complete for the week (note this will not include daily challenges, of course).

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 23 May / Monday 24 May:

  • Fully Socket 3 Ayatan Sculptures
  • Pick up 8 Rare Mods
  • Complete 3 Capture Missions
  • Kill 500 Enemies
  • Complete 1 Sortie
  • Complete 4 Halls of Ascension on Lua (Elite)
  • Kill or Capture an Eidolon Hydrolyst (Elite)

Some Tips

Fully Socket 3 Ayatan Sculptures: Sadly, this challenge requires players to either HAVE 3 Ayatan sculptures (unsocketed), or to go out and find them. While of course it is possible to find a statue while out and about, it’s unlikely you’ll find enough. Best to go do Maroo’s Daily challenge for this one.

Pick up 8 Rare Mods: Seems difficult at first glance, because Rare mods … well, they’re rare. They don’t necessarily drop that often. While it’s quite possible that 8 will drop as you do other challenges, this pairs PERFECTLY with an Index challenge, as all Index mods are Rare, and they drop frequently. TL;DR: go to the Index, if you can.

Complete 3 Capture Missions: It doesn’t get much easier than this. My advice? Choose a low level capture, rush to the target, take him down, and rush out – you’ll smash out three in under 15 minutes.

Kill 500 Enemies: Super easy, because it can be done passively! Don’t focus on this at all – it should just happen. If not, choose a high-level Exterminate and you should knock this out quickly.

Complete 1 Sortie: Sadly, this locks out players that are yet to complete The War Within, but it’s not terribly difficult.

Complete 4 Halls of Ascension on Lua: You need to have unlocked Lua to have access to this (by completing The Second Dream). There are 7 different challenge rooms that appear at random on Lua maps. People tend to have their favourites, but I like the Crossfire Exterminate, myself. Keep in mind that the musical challenge (that awards an Octavia blueprint) does NOT count towards this.

Kill or Capture an Eidolon Hydrolyst: Not difficult if you are experienced with the Eidolons, but keep in mind the Hydrolyst is the third Eidolon,so you need to Capture the Teralyst, then take the Brilliant Shards to the lake to call out the Gantulyst, and then reinse and repeat for the Hydrolyst. As a result, you’ll kind of need a team that knows what they are doing.

Episode 142 – How About an Annual Social Event in Warframe?

As this was an in-between week, we decided to discuss a topic that popped up on a YouTube Channel via TheDsIEGE. This video discusses the Guardian Games in Destiny, and how we should perhaps have something similar in Warframe.

We thought it was a great idea, but had some different ideas about what to implement. This was a lot of fun – have a listen, and let us know your thoughts in our Discord or via Social Networks!

Topics:

  • News: Spring Featured Dojo Contest, New update on PC, Tennogen Rd20, pt 1 on consoles, Tennocon Community Video opportunity
  • Discussion: How About an Annual Social Event in Warframe?

Episode Notes:

The Spring 2021 Featured Dojo Contest is live! If you don’t know what that is – it’s a chance to show off your dojo and have it featured in game for a whole season!  

Octavia Prime Access is set to end on May 25th – thus a new Prime Access is incoming… who will it be? Also – Wukong Prime plus his weapons will be headed on into the vault, so… get farming if you want him! 

TennoGen Rd 20, part 2 is live on PC – more good stuff incoming! 

Also live on PC with the TennoGen update? New augments – huzzah!

Aaaaand while we’re talking about TennoGen – Round 20, part 1 is now available on consoles! Woo! 

Want to be featured in a Tennocon Community video? DE has called for all musically inclined community members to send in their rendition of Sleeping in the Cold Below.

Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 3, Week 13

Welcome back, Dreamers.

The Nightwave weekly bounties change every Sunday at 12 midnight GMT (or Monday morning, if that’s your preference), so keep your eyes out every week after that time for our weekly update – letting you know the activities you’ll need to complete for the week (note this will not include daily challenges, of course).

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 02 May / Monday 03 May:

  •  Complete 3 Rescue Missions
  • Complete 3 Sabotage Missions
  • Complete 1 Sortie
  • Complete 5 Different Bounties in the Orb Vallis
  • Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Orb Vallis
  • Complete a Defence Mission reaching at least Wave 20 (Elite)
  • Complete an Extermination Mission with only Level 30 or Higher Enemies without Triggering Alarms (Elite)

Some Tips

Complete 3 Rescue Missions: Super duper easy – you could probably smash this out in 5 minutes. Choose a low-level, simple Rescue – rush to target, rush to exit, done. Not likely one that needs to be combined with any other challenge, but keep it in mind.

Complete 3 Sabotage Missions: Another super duper easy one, and one that can be doubled up with Invasions or Relic runs if that is also on the cards for that week (provided, of course, that there are Sabotage missions available). Otherwise, smash out three low level ones and be done with this in 10 mins.

Complete 1 Sortie: Sadly, this locks out players that are yet to complete The War Within, but it’s not terribly difficult.

Complete 5 Different Bounties in the Orb Vallis: Bit of a pain in the butt, this one, but mainly because it’s just time consuming. You can smash out all 5 in a row if you want, or spread them out over the week, but it will definitely take more time than it’s (perhaps) worth.

Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Orb Vallis: Rare gems are actually quite easy to find, so this won’t take too long. You’re more likely to find them in blue veins, but red veins will also have a chance (but only when the small target spawns). Just do a lot of mining, and do your best to be as perfect as possible – and always go for the small target if it’s there.

Complete a Defence Mission reaching at least Wave 20: Not too hard, you just have to last a long time. That many waves is going to be at least half an hour, so buckle in – and remember, all you need to do is survive, so you should be fine with a good group. You can smash out a bunch of other passive challenges as well, so make sure you bring the right weapons to get multiple jobs done (if they are on the menu for that day/week).

Complete an Extermination Mission with only Level 30 or Higher Enemies without Triggering Alarms: If you have a good stealth frame (Ivara, Loki, Ash, or even Banshee, Limbo, or Baruuk), then this probably won’t be too taxing for you, but note that the number of kills required will be significant. That said, there are no alarms in the Void, so you can just go ham in a Void Exterminate and the box will be ticked.

Episode 140: Thoughts on Call of Tempestarii

It’s been a few weeks since our last episode, but boy – the wait was worth it. Well… we think it was at least. The news was thin over the last few weeks, but just recently, Update 30: Call of the Tempestarii, dropped on all platforms.

And if that’s not something worth talking about, then I don’t know what is.

And in all honesty, there was a lot to unpack. Join us as we share our thoughts – and we’ll see you again in a couple of weeks!

Topics:

  • News: April Fools!, Warframe 8-year Anniversary Collection, Halikar Wraith
  • Discussion: Our thoughts on Call of the Tempestarii (no spoilers!)

Episode Notes:

Another year, another hilarious April Fools! This year: FashionFace – Warframe-branded cosmetics. 

Baro brought a new weapon with him to PC recently… the Halikar Wraith! 

Warframe’s 8 year celebrations are sure to start… soon? At least you can grab the official merch from the merch store!

Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 3, Week 11

Welcome back, Dreamers.

The Nightwave weekly bounties change every Sunday at 12 midnight GMT (or Monday morning, if that’s your preference), so keep your eyes out every week after that time for our weekly update – letting you know the activities you’ll need to complete for the week (note this will not include daily challenges, of course).

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 18 April / Monday 19 April:

  •  Fully Socket 3 Ayatan Sculptures
  • Complete 3 Spy Missions
  • Complete 5 Scans for Cephalon Simaris
  • Complete 10 Syndicate Missions
  • Catch 6 Rare Servofish in the Orb Vallis
  • Complete 10 Nightmare Missions of Any Type (Elite)
  • Complete 5 Steel Path Missions (Elite)

Some Tips

Fully Socket 3 Ayatan Sculptures: Sadly, this challenge requires players to either HAVE 3 Ayatan sculptures (unsocketed), or to go out and find them. While of course it is possible to find a statue while out and about, it’s unlikely you’ll find enough. Best to go do Maroo’s Daily challenge for this one.

Complete 3 Spy Missions: Again, an easy one, and again, one that you might be able to double up on with Invasion missions (if you’re lucky). This will work for ANY Spy mission, so keep an eye on the Sortie as well, because that might tick off one of these if you also need to do a Sortie challenge.

Complete 5 Scans for Cephalon Simaris: Keep in mind that you will need to have a target assigned by Cephalon Simaris, so go see him at any relay first. Hopefully he’ll give you a common target. You can quite easily combine this with most other mission types, depending on the target you have, so ensure you have your scanners equipped.

Complete 10 Syndicate Missions: Nice and easy – you can knock out a bunch of passive challenges as well while doing these, as well as possibly some less passive ones, such as Simaris scans and so on. 

Catch 6 Rare Servofish in the Orb Vallis: Fishing in the Orb Vallis is somewhat more enjoyable than on the Plains (to me, at least), but it’s harder to catch Rare fish there, sadly. You’re looking for  Tromyzon (found in Ponds, when it’s Cold/Freezing), Charamote, or Synathid (both found in Caves in any temperature). Best to take lures, but some suggest Charamote can spawn without lures if you wait long enough. I have also heard that Longwinders count towards this, but am yet to confirm. Couples very well with the Mine for gems in the Orb Vallis challenge (go mining while waiting on fish spawns).

Complete 10 Nightmare Missions of Any Type: This one isn’t too hard – just a little tedious. Depending on how well equipped you are, it shouldn’t be difficult, but you possibly want to be careful to double dip on things if you are struggling. Still – you need to do 10 of these, so you might be able to double dip by also knocking out any “Do X number of XXX mission type” missions.

Complete 5 Steel Path Missions: Oooh, yikes. This is getting truly Elite. Not only do you need to complete every node to unlock the Steel Path, but you also need to have the equipment to handle it. Not so bad if you are truly elite, or have friends that are, but I can see this would annoy some.

Nightwave Weeklies: Intermission 3, Week 9

Welcome back, Dreamers.

The Nightwave weekly bounties change every Sunday at 12 midnight GMT (or Monday morning, if that’s your preference), so keep your eyes out every week after that time for our weekly update – letting you know the activities you’ll need to complete for the week (note this will not include daily challenges, of course).

This Week's Bounties

The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 04 April / Monday 05 April:

  • Complete 5 Different Bounties on the Plains of Eidolon
  • Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Plains of Eidolon
  • Help Clem with his Weekly Mission
  • Complete 3 Capture Missions
  • Polarize a Weapon, Companion, or Warframe (not in Simulacrum)
  • Complete 4 Halls of Ascension on Lua (Elite)
  • Defeat a Silver Grove Specter (Elite)

Some Tips

Complete 5 Different Bounties on the Plains of Eidolon: Now that there are camps on the Plains, this will be much easier. You can either jump in and just smash out 5 in a row, or do a few here and there across several days. Not hard, but time consuming, as usual. Good chance to farm for anything you are missing from the Plains.

Mine 6 Rare Gems or Ore in the Plains of Eidolon: Rare gems are actually quite easy to find, so this won’t take too long. I’d recommend using the Orb Vallis mining tool if you have it. You’re more likely to find them in blue veins, but red veins will also have a chance (but only when the small target spawns). Just do a lot of mining, and do your best to be as perfect as possible – and always go for the small target if it’s there.

Help Clem with his Weekly Mission: This is really easy – the Clem missions aren’t exactly difficult content. You can double up on some passives, but don’t expect to smash through several Acts in one fell swoop.

Complete 3 Capture Missions: It doesn’t get much easier than this. My advice? Choose a low level capture, rush to the target, take him down, and rush out – you’ll smash out three in under 15 minutes.

Polarize a Weapon, Companion, or Warframe (not in Simulacrum): Not one that can be doubled up with anything else, and also a challenge that requires players to actually HAVE Forma… But not so hard.

Complete 4 Halls of Ascension on Lua: You need to have unlocked Lua to have access to this (by completing The Second Dream). There are 7 different challenge rooms that appear at random on Lua maps. People tend to have their favourites, but I like the Crossfire Exterminate, myself. Keep in mind that the musical challenge (that awards an Octavia blueprint) does NOT count towards this.

Defeat a Silver Grove Specter: This is a bit of a pain. Not because the Specters are hard, but because you actively need to seek out the Silver Grove! And not only that – you will need to have prepared your Apothics – so this means that only players that have completed Titania’s Quest (The Silver Grove) will be able to do this one… AND on top of that, it will take up a bunch of time and you won’t really be able to knock out other challenges while doing so… Good luck!
