Warframe breaks open the Prime Vault, introduces hotfix for Fortuna update

    
12

While Warframe players are probably still busy helping out Solaris United, exploring Orb Vallis, and otherwise delving into the recently released Fortuna update, Digital Extremes has announced that it’s cracking open the Prime Vault, heralding the return of the Nova Prime and Mag Prime. Players can snag both of these powerful warframes (plus some platinum and other useful accessories) as a bundle for $59.99 US, or they purchase them individually for $39.99 US each.

In addition, the devs have deployed a hotfix for the latest patch. On top of to fixing a handful of bugs, including one with the potential to crash players’ games, the hotfix also adds Nova Prime, Mag Prime, Soma Prime, Boar Prime, Dakra Prime, and Vasto Prime Relics to “Plains of Eidolon Bounties, Orb Vallis Bounties, and in the Void drop table.” Some of these Prime Vault Relics will have the chance to contain a brand-new Prime weapon, the Akvasto Prime dual revolvers. You can find the full notes for the hotfix over on the game’s official forums.

Does anyone know what is heading INTO the vault?

I don’t have Nova or Mag, in Prime or Non-Prime form. I usually go for tank over glass cannon. But I see Nova in groups all the time. I do love the look of both frames though. One of my favourite alt skins is for Mag. Looks like a proper android.

I can’t find out what’s being vaulted next? That’s probably more important than what’s going to be unvaulted.

It’s expected to be Banshee Prime, Euphona Prime, and Helios Prime

It follows the order of Prime Access, so it makes sense to be banshee the next in line.

Nova Prime has been my main frame since she first came out, first prime frame i ever bought actually, now everyone is a Nova Prime. For the longest time she was probably one of the most if not at times the most expensive prime frame to buy for plat. Problem for me atm is groups don’t need two Nova’s and I’m ending up in groups with more than 2 at times, sucks, for now, or for awhile i suppose. I just don’t click with other frames, i like what i like i guess.

Seriously, don’t worry about the meta. “Need” is BS. I had someone comment in Sortie last night that there were 2 Inaros in the party. (“sigh, 2 inaros, this will take a while” or something like that.) You know what? That Inaros will never have to be rezzed because it won’t die. Best rifleman frame in game because of that. I’m confident that another Nova could bring something different to the table too.

Yea in time it’ll fade again. I’m letting other nova’s do their thing and have some fun, but when things get intense i’ll let loose, i do notice though after i use Molecular Prime, they just don’t anymore lol. It is kinda cool to see allot of worm holes and antimatter drops going off (i never use them).

Fortuna is so good, so pleased with what they have created. I always solo the first 3 bounties, the reason here is I’ve often got into newb groups and that’s fine happy to help, teach, but it’s happened more than once they take the bounty and think ok we’ll lets go mining? i’ll do 4 solo sometimes, but to keep in time i’ll usually group for 4 and 5.

So the funny thing now is i take bounty 1 and yea it’s time to mine, lol, love exploring Vallis.

I know it just came out but it’s got me wondering what the future trend might be? Land for Mercury or Mars next? That’d be cool and a direction i’d love.

Ironically, i did yesterday’s sortie defense as Inaros, did like 70% of the damage with my staticor and kept the operative alive using Vazarin School.

These folks would get a LOT more of my money if they would just let me buy the Prime ‘frames and weapons I want. Oh well, guess I will just keep my cash for now.

Your money is a pittance. There are mounds of data proving your method doesn’t work nearly as well as keeping something limited – creating a sense of pressure to buy it now.

tl;dr don’t hold your breath.

Buy Platinum, trade for the blueprint set. Vaulteds tend to trade at a premium, obviously, but there’s a clear path to convert money into Primes if you want it.

Or earn plat through rare drops. One of the few games you can earn cash currency by playing without it being icky.

Very true. (Or even just selling the common drops in bulk as “Prime Junk”, thanks to Baro.)

I mainly brought up buying Plat to trade with because he expressed a desire to purchase Prime frames outright.
