Much of this isn’t exactly news if you watched the last devstream for Warframe, but just so players are aware, this coming Wednesday, September 8th, will be bringing the multiplayer shooter’s next update, which is reintroducing the popular Plague Star event and releasing the game’s newest Prime ‘frame.

One of the highlighted features of September 8th’s release is Nidus Prime, who will be coming with altered Mod polarities and greater customization features along with the usual Prime Weapons and exclusive Prime customizations. This new variant will arrive to all platforms Warframe is on as an instant unlock either for purchase or through in-game means.

The other big feature is the returning Operation: Plague Star, which asks players to rally together to defend the Plains of Eidolon against Infested lifeforms before they make their way to Cetus. The major reward for participating in this event is the wicked looking Ghoulsaw weapon, as well as Nidus Prime Relics in drops, yielding an additional bonus path to earning the new Nidus Prime.

The big draw of “Plague Star,” for people who haven’t experienced it yet, is the items you can purchase from the event store. There are “plague Zaw” components for building the modular melee weapons, and two “Arcane” upgrades (items to slot into the weapons.) I think at least at one point, the plague zaws and their unique arcanes were considered some of the “best in slot” choices for melee weapons. What many players are interested in though is that you can trade the event tokens for Forma, an item needed to upgrade basically everything.

Lots of people run the event extensively just to farm Forma, since it’s normally something of a pain to get. You can construct one per day – IF you have a blueprint available. Some veteran players brag they’ll have more than they’ll ever need. I’ve been playing “way too much” for eight years, and I think I’d need over a hundred Forma to earn complete “mastery” of all the Kuva Lich and Sisters of Parvos weapons. And that’s if the devs don’t add more of those, or another Necramech (which also needs five each to earn all the Mastery points) or any other new weapons. So… Forma is always useful to most players.
