Twitch Prime subscribers get free access to Trinity Prime in Warframe

If you’re a Twitch Prime subscriber who plays Warframe or may want to play some Warframe, you can get something very valuable this month with a free Trinity Prime frame. Just link your Warframe account with your Twitch account, and in addition to the special syandana (read: cape) that you normally get, you’ll also get Trinity Prime as a new frame option.

Trinity Prime is an interesting choice, as she’s not a damaging frame but is a potent healing and support frame. She’s a bit squishy, which is worth considering when running solo, but in groups she can be an exceptionally useful support character. As with all version, the Prime variant is far more powerful than the base version, so you’ll be getting access to a potent healer in her best possible incarnation. Who wouldn’t like that? (Aside from the enemies your frames are fighting, they would probably prefer no healers.)

I got this the other day. Trinity Prime was not on my high priority list, but I am finding it an intriguing style of gameplay. It’s not nearly as berzerker as many frames, and success definitely depends on a more thoughtful approach. But I do find it can be surprisingly resilient and useful. The polarity of some of the aura slot confused me at first — a caster frame not inherently set up for Energy Siphon? — until I realized how easy energy sustain would be with its second power. She can be a real best with overshields. So far, I can see why this is a highly valued frame at higher levels of gameplay, and I’m looking forward to more gameplay with it.

Actually, prime frames are not “far more powerful”. They’re better, yes, but not by that much. In Trinity’s case, she is a tiny bit faster, has two additional polarities out of the box (which is a non-issue as you can get formas easily) and she has 50% more shields. And then there’s the energy replenish thingy with orokin orbs, but that’s common to all prime frames and is extremely situational anyway…

So yeah, they are a bit better, but nowhere near “far more powerful”.

And she’s not squishy either – her fourth ability can make her pretty tanky, giving her self-heal, shields replenish and up to 75% damage resistance upon every use.

Im sorta meh about Trinity… even the prime version.

She is VERY squishy… which is fine, she is a support/healer role. The main issue I have with the frame is that most of her abilities dont really work with the meta gameplay.

For example:

Her first power links to 1 enemy, allowing anyone attacking that enemy, to get healed. Problem is, stuff dies super fast in Warframe, so this power doesnt really benefit anyone. Its on and gone again in less than 2 seconds. “Use it vs a boss” you say. Problem there is the named bosses have several periods (ie: 75% of the time you fight them) that they are immune to pretty much everything, including this. So that means this really is only good for those very few situations where you fight something like a bursa.

Her 2nd power also suffers from similar things that the first one does. It affects a group of enemies, but once they are dead, you dont get the beneficial effect anymore.

Her 3rd power is a nice “Oh S!$%” button for herself.

Her 4th ability is probably the most useful, as its an aoe heal+more power, that can beef up anyone near you. Great for groups that stick together, but again, if your team isnt taking damage really, its an ability that is always on standby.

This ultimately makes her a very squishy frame, that spends most of her time not using any of her abilities. Sure, you can toss some good, modded weapons on her… but then, you could stick those same weapons on another frame that has abilities that fit the meta gameplay much much better.

If you go for ability strength and duration, you can get up to 75% damage reduction / 30 second duration upon use. In adition, it replenishes all her shields and health (again – with a.s. maximised).

She is not squishy…

Also, until recently, Trinity has been widely used as one of the best DPS frames out there. It was sort of an exploit of her third and fourth abilities (often with the aviator mod equipped) and using self-damaging weapons (Sancti Castanas were the worst culprit). It was a very annoying gameplay for other team members, as Trinity would basically obliterate anything in the vicinity as it was spawning, including behind the walls and completely ignoring any LOS limitations. In defense missions you would have a Trinity enjoying herself, while other three team members would stand around bored stiff…

EV Nuke is still one of the simplest ways to take down certain annoying mobs, like sortie level Kela De Thayme etc.

High duration build for Link and Blessing work e.g. soloing, Eidolons. Low duration build for Energy Vampire spam. Always keep a goodly portion of strength and range.

Can’t say I’m super excited about her kit, but a free Prime frame is a free Prime frame.
