Warframe slips on the Mask of the Revenant

    
11
At 36, does Warframe have enough classes yet? No, and we will probably never arrive to that point. It’s kind of Digital Extremes’ thing, plus it always gives players another goal to pursue.

And so it is with this week’s content update, which introduces the new Revenant warframe. This “darker” class is “a majestic new warrior wielding the power to convert and control hordes of enemies and who can spin into a wild flurry of Sentient light energy to obliterate his foes.” The Revenant can enthrall targets, mesmerize groups, and abuse their minions for great effect. Allegedly that’s what Harold down at the Sip ‘N Gulp could do too, according to his fantastic testimony last Thursday night.

The Mask of the Revenant update opens the Ludoplex for business, offering a one-stop shopping experience for mini-games. There’s even a pair of new games to enjoy: the side-scrolling Wyrmius and the flappy Happy Zephyr. This patch arrives for PC this week and will come out on consoles “soon.”

Actually, those were already in for some time, they were accessible through the appearance menu of Wyrm and Zephyr. In both cases you have one more customisation ‘slot’, which starts the minigame when you click it.

I dunno, I’m not wild about the look/design of the Revenant. I’m sure it will play very fun and work well, but something about the aesthetic isn’t my cup of tea. At least, not compared to some of the more recent frames like Gara and Khora.

I fully intend on collecting every single item in game, eventually. I’m making slow but steady progress! I’m not bothered in the least by the build times, when I have overlapping items being built at any given time. Next up on my Frame Build List are Wukong and Banshee Prime!

Nice! I’ve set a similar goal but with frames only atm, and i have a very long way to go.

Every thing in game that’s a lofty goal for sure. Would that include all prime’s as well?

I’ve researched a couple pieces of Wukong, something about that frame interests me.

Technically, there’s at least one that is unobtainable, the Excalibur Prime. All other primes can be obtained either through playing or patience (waiting for unvaulting) – or plat.

My main problem for a long time in completing my collection was Sibear. Just the prospect of grinding 30k cryotic to craft it was enough to keep me away from it for ages. And there are other amusing crafting requirements, like Vauban prime and his nitain madness…

It’s a long term goal, but at least it will keep you entertained for quite some time!

I will drop everything I’m doing for a Nitain Alert, so I’m usually sitting on 12-15 at any given time. Building Vauban Prime definitely depleted my reserves, but I’m back up to normal for now…

@xpsync Yes, all primes and regulars as well. It means some things are out of my reach until they are unvaulted or I can sell enough rivens to get plat to buy the parts. (Carrier Prime’s price is really steep right now and it’s on my must-have list. I don’t want to buy it with plat until my plat reserves can get above 1K, but I keep spending it in little chunks as I sell off Rivens.)

Yea man that is one lofty goal, put your mind to it anything is possible, i’m confident you’ll pull it off.

I know i want the Carrier Prime as well. But yikes! The price, it’s on my must have list as well. My poor little Nova all she wants is a Prime version of her Carrier.

Same here. I’m not a fan of his looks. I’ll still get him and level him up and all that jazz because that’s just how Warframe is, but I’ll probably wait it out until some Tennogen hits before I use him for real.

Khora is the best for Ayatan hunting – now if only the sculptures had a special map icon!
