2020’s First Mainline: Review, Revise, Refresh. 

Operation Scarlet Spear is coming this March, and it’s bringing a massive Lore Event that introduces ‘Squad Link’ – now known as ‘Operation Link’. Scarlet Spear will move the stakes of the world forward with a new cinematic. Prepare yourselves, Tenno. The Sentient threat is deploying forces that the Origin System has not seen since the Old War. It will be the first of Warframe’s many major Content expansions this year. But before we dive into the new Scarlet Spear’s launch we’re bringing some of the biggest revisions to Warframe to date. In this (extremely long) Workshop, we are covering a broad variety of topics that are all receiving focused Overhauls or ‘Quality of Life’ improvements.

We were originally going to ship the contents of this Workshop with Scarlet Spear, but have decoupled the changes so you would have time to experience the revisions. We are targeting a release early next week on PC. After we’ve iterated on the revisions, you’ll jump into the biggest Operation in Warframe’s history: Scarlet Spear. Here is your guide for navigating what matters to you in this 20 part Dev Workshop!

XB1 Empyrean: Hotfixes

Hotfix: 1

  • Fixed various context actions displaying the wrong Button prompt/callout.
  • Fixed free cursor Piloting on controller to be more standard flight model.
  • Fixed Crewships being spawned as Tenno Faction, which resulted in numerous issues such as not attacking you, Fighters attacking it instead, and Railjack Turrets not doing any damage to it. This also fixes a fatal crash related to this bug.

 

Hotfix: 2

  • Fixed failing a Railjack mission while Piloting an enemy Crewship resulting in becoming stuck on a black screen with no indication of loading.
    • Please note we’re working on a fix for Clients still experiencing this.
  • Fixed missing controller key callouts on the Railjack Tactical Menu. You may notice no callout at all, which means the Tactical Menu is not bound to anything and you must bind it first.
  • Fixed Ivara Prime Access and Ivara Prime Accessories having an infinite ‘Please Wait’ in in-game Market.
  • Fixed [PH] text when attempting to Upgrade Grid slots or Avionics Mods.

Hotfix: 3

This Hotfix is bringing in some behind the scenes goods to be revealed at a later date! We are still building for a bigger Update that will bring many Railjack changes and fixes, thank you!

Additions:

  • Added long requested Wisp Walk, Run, and Sprint movement to Melee weapons, and fixed her movement when equipped with the Shedu.
    • Fixes for weapon hand positions, walking animations, and t-posing issues related to this change from PC’s 27.0.10 – .11 will be coming in a future update! 

Changes:

 

  • Tenebrous Ephemera Removal and Future Acquisition: 
    • TEMPORARILY removed the Tenebrous Ephemera as a drop from Reinforced Sentient Containers aboard the Sentient Anomaly in Veil Proxima. The drop method is causing numerous issues in terms of connectivity stability and player frustration. We’re going to be changing the acquisition method that won’t involve a direct drop rate in a near future Hotfix/Update, and will instead be closer to a token system (complete X Anomaly missions to buy Ephemera from a vendor).
      • The Tenebrous Ephemera will be coming back as soon as possible in a better acquisition method
  • Made performance improvements to Vauban’s Flechette Orb projectile FX.

Fixes:

  • Fixed the ‘Hijacked’ Grineer Crewship spawning inside geometry.
  • Fixed players becoming stuck in an infinite loading tunnel when launching Railjack missions from the Orbiter.
  • Fixed getting a mini Grineer Hacking Panel UI that is unhackable if the hack is canceled upon hitting the context action.
  • Fixed purchased Warframe skins still appearing as available for purchase in the Arsenal.

The Old Blood: Update 26.0.8 has been submitted to Cert!

Link: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1147447-xb1-the-old-blood-update-2608-status-in-cert/

The Old Blood: Update 26.0.8 has been submitted to Cert!

We’ve included everything from PC Hotfix 26.0.7 – 26.0.8.1! This small update brings you highly anticipated changes to Melee and Kuva Liches – we were unable to include them in The Old Blood (more info on that here), so this interim build is our way of getting those to you sooner rather than later! The total download size for this update is ~235 MB. Once we have passed Cert we will update this thread with a launch date/time!

Now let’s get into what you can expect in this small but mighty update!

Kuva Lich Changes                                            

  • Converted Lich Trading is coming! If you have a Converted Kuva Lich, you may trade them with another player who may be looking for a specific Kuva Lich Weapon or Ephemera. This system includes the use of a brand new Dojo Room inspired by the early ‘War Room’ design from the King Pin System! Liches can only be traded once and are traded as Rank 1 Liches  – you cannot re-trade a Converted Lich past one person!
    • The Crimson Branch: This Clan Dojo room serves the purpose of trading Converted Kuva Liches, and will scale up to future entries in the system with other factions!
  • Back-to-back Duplicates – Your Kuva Lich will no longer have the same weapon twice in a row. While you may get a duplicated weapon down the road, your Kuva Lich will have a guaranteed different weapon than its immediate predecessor.
  • Recycle your Requiem – 4 Defiled Requiem Mods can now be Transmuted into a random, fully charged, Requiem Mod. This gives them some additional use, as well as helping you clean up your Inventory.
  • Void Fissure Missions will now appear on all Kuva Fortress nodes! Previously, only Rescue/Survival missions on the Kuva Fortress were eligible due to other missions having an Archwing restriction; now the whole Fortress is eligible!
  • A bug now turned feature; Ephemera’s obtained from a Kuva Lich can now be equipped on Sentinels and Companions! For FX sake, this will be a slightly subdued version of the selected Ephemera. Non-Lich Ephemera functionally is in the works!
  • Increased the chance of your Kuva Lich to have an Ephemera from 5% to 10%. Newly birthed Liches will have the 10% chance, while existing Liches will still be at 5%. Old Liches that are traded and “reactivated” will also be at 5%.
  • Added new Parazon finishers for you to stabby stab the baddies with!
  • Added a Kuva Lich icon beside Star Chart regions/nodes that are under the influence of your Kuva Lich to address color blind concerns regarding the ‘Kuva Stain’.
  • Increased the base damage (before elemental bonus) of the Kuva Ogris from 454 to 714.
  • Converted Kuva Lich allies will no longer spawn in Archwing missions, as they ignore the complete lack of oxygen and requirements needed to fly.
  • Grineer Prosecutors will no longer spawn as Thralls, as they were essentially invincible to everything except area-of-effect abilities.
  • Ghoul Expired will no longer spawn as a Thrall due to their suicide death mechanic.
  • Removed Pigments from the list of eligible items the Kuva Lich can Tax.
  • Removed rewards obtained specifically from completing a Junction from the list of eligible items the Kuva Lich can Tax.
  • Reduced the camera shake of the Kuva Ayanga explosions.
  • Kuva Quartakk now has force feedback sounds when aiming down its sights.
  • Fixed an issue where Larvling spawns were not working 100% of the time.
  • Fixed Kuva Lich Ephemera’s appear too subtle or sometimes not at all.
  • Fixed multiple issues where Kuva Liches would not be created from Larvlings due to certain Warframe abilities.
  • And more!

Melee Phase 2: Technique Changes & Fixes

These changes take a stab at some balancing in the wake of all the changes and adjusts some Stances based on feedback.

  • 7-Day Affinity Booster

PLUS to those eligible (MR 3+ and account created before we announced the Legendary Core on October 18th) 1x Legendary Core will be delivered in a separate Inbox message! This criteria is necessary to avoid awarding dormant accounts that could use this gift to abuse trading.

There will also be a total of eight time-limited Alerts starting Friday, November 1st @ 2 PM ET until Monday, November 4th @ 2 PM ET: 

  • With the hefty changes that Melee Phase 2: TECHNIQUES brings, you can also expect three Melee-only Alerts to help you get a feel for how the changes performs against the three main Factions in different mission settings. Each Alert rewards a fully built Forma upon completion – giving you even more options to make adjustments to your Melee weapons where you see fit.
  • The introduction of Kuva Liches brings a special new kind of Relic – Requiem Relics. There are four Relics in total that contain Requiem Mods, the Exilus Weapon Adaptor, and more! For more details, continue down to the Kuva Lich section. To get you a headstart with the Kuva Liches, there will be four Alerts on Sedna that will each reward one of the four unrefined Requiem Relics. Since completing The War Within quest is required to access the Kuva Fortress, these alerts are only available to those that have completed the Sedna Junction and Sedna’s Nodes.
  • As a fun bonus, you can also play an Alert for the “Grendel in Action” Glyph!

XB1 Buried Debts: Update 24.5.0 (In Cert!)

Forum Post: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1071733-xb1-buried-debts-update-2450-in-cert/

Buried Debts: Update 24.5.0 has just been sent to cert! Our second mainline update of 2019 is on its way, and it’s bringing with it the first Operation of the year, the newest Warframe Hildryn, Phase 1 of the Melee Revisit, and much more!

Huge round of applause for the teams who worked so hard to get this out to cert late tonight. We made it! As we head into the weekend with some relief, we hope you are as excited as we are to kick off Buried Debts. In the meantime, I’m sure we’ll be seeing you out in The Index enjoying the Double Credits bonus weekend – oh! And I hear that Nora Night is broadcasting Episode 2 of The Wolf of Saturn Six, you can tune in to hear what she has to say, Dreamers.

Now onto the meat and potatoes of this thread!

This update includes everything from Fortuna: Hotfix 24.2.13 to Buried Debts: Update 24.5.1*. Many of you are experienced with what comes with a mainline update, but for those of you who might not know – they tend to be quite bulky in size when first released on PC, and since we want to give you guys the most we can in a single cert build, that usually includes a big chunk of content from everything that was released after mainline. That said, the download size for Buried Debts: Update 24.5.0 will be roughly 3 GB!

*The Nightwave updates/hotfixes on PC included changes and fixes that were not included in the launch of Nightwave on XB1, so we have included them in this release!

Once we have passed cert, we will share the good news and an official launch date with you here and on the usual Warframe channels.

Let’s get into what Buried Debts: Update 24.5.0 (and its whopping 22 pages of additions, changes, and fixes!) will bring:
