    I could be very happy with them being cheaper. The game seems fairly fun so far, though the people I've played with just dash to the exit ignoring pretty much everything so its kind of sad. Guess I should solo. But then I die and you apparently have to pay for revives? That seems a bit sad.

    I've had that problem too. At least hit the side rooms for the loot!

    If you ever want to coop, you should add me to your contacts =). I'm vamenn in game. That goes for anyone!

    Okay, I just tried doing mission 3 like a real space ninja and I felt pretty fucking awesome.

    Sneaking around as Volt, charge sword slashing any assholes who got to close. Got about 2/3rds of the way through the stage before I finally got detected and murdered. (Got swarmed from both sides.)

    That was pretty amazing.

    I've started a clan just to see if it worked. Arcadians in Space is up. If you want in right now feel free to add me on CorriganX and ill invite you. I was just testing it out, so its not exactly super focused or anything. It appears to just be another chat.


    once i've accepted your friend request, go to the Clan part of the contacts (It looks like a little crosshair) then accept from there.

    So, how hard is it to unlock the advanced frames? I'd like to give Ember a whirl for example.

    @Viking just bought the blueprint for 25k. Its another 25k for the cost of putting it together, and you need to find 4 pieces (Ember helm, Ember Chassis, etc) to put the blueprint together into the other warframe. Its also a 3 day crafting time.

    Hopefully with it being a closed beta, they'll make the real world dollar prices less insane. The complaint has been fairly universal it seems.

    They've still got time to learn.

    the crafting time on crafting, is dumb. What is the reasoning behind it? If I have the materials and credits to build a fancy new sword, I shouldnt have to wait 12 hours to use it.

    Incentive for you to buy stuff, I guess.

    Just signed up for the beta, still at work. Here is to hoping that it runs on my computer, and that I can get a decent ping. Looking forward to being a space ninja with you guys in the future.

    I am attempting to make ember currently, below is how the warframe making works and I am currently about 1/2 done so far.
    Ok found out about crafting from both what I have acquired and the forums. Currently to craft a warframe you need a warframe blueprint which you buy with credits from the shop. Then you need 3 crafted components to complete it, and that requires getting the blueprints for the components and getting the crafting items. The component blueprints are boss drops from certain bosses, generally each boss can drop the components blueprints for 1-2 warframes. From what I have found so far each component blueprint requires a certain amount of common items and 1 rarer item that can only be found in certain planets levels. After the components and their blueprints are found and crafted you can then craft the warframe itself.

    To give some perspective on the time its taken, I have gotten around 75,000 credits since I started doing the boss runs and finding the other crafting items needed to make the components. Ember is easier to assemble it seems in part due to the fact that its an early boss so you almost always get teams going through it. Solo it would be close to impossible and I have 660 shields, 250 health and weapons in the high teens.

    Just curious but is there an ingame way to earn platinum or are we going to only be able to extend a warframe and a weapon before basically being required to pay for any item we use for an extended period of time?

  • OrmussOrmuss Registered User regular
    I got a blueprint for a sword, but it costs ALL my monies to make, and I have no idea whether it is any good or not cause it doesn't display the stats. This annoys me.

    Regarding drops, is loot handled Diablo 3 style (everyone gets their own stuff) or Borderlands style (one drop for everyone so first one to grab it wins!)? I haven't been able to tell when I've done coop.

    I think the economy is getting some overhauls in the future, a lot of people don't like that you can only get Pro weapons with hard currency.

    I guess because it is a cooperative and not competitive game this bugs me less but hearing this is aaaaalmost enough to make me not install the game when I get home from work today.

    Its 20p to unlock the 'pro' spec of a frame/weapon. From the looks of it, you find a frame/weapon you like and level it for quite a damn while as the full grid would take quite a bit to level. So its probably not a very expensive thing, even if they leave it that way. As long as you aren't ADDing into 20 different weapons all the time.

  • Albino BunnyAlbino Bunny Royal Canterlot Voice Registered User regular
    I don't mind having to unlock the extended tree. It's not an entirely terrible idea because it can force players to put points into useful stats they might neglect (like health).

    I just think it should be unlockable with credits.

    Heck have a boss drop be the ability to unlock one item.

  • chocoboliciouschocobolicious Registered User regular
    Or at the very least let people sell their platinum or whatever its called for credits.

    Yeah except that doesn't really make sense with in the context of the model.

    Platinum is real world money, it can be exchanged for everything including some exclusive (as far as I can tell) weapons along with aesthetic stuff

    Credits are F2P currency: In this model it should basically do everything that platinum can, just much slower. The only thing you shouldn't be able to unlock with Credits are the visual options.

    Having a feedback loop between two sets of currency that work towards virtually the same goal is pointless and silly. The reason this works in Eve or GW2 is because the buy currency is purely used for either Game Time or Item shop services that are distinct and different to what the main currency achieves for the player in terms of character and item progression.

    They really should let you try all three of the initial warframes before you have to commit, what with you being stuck with that choice.

    I agree honestly.

    I came expecting it to be ME3 multiplayer with ninjas.

    Then the game told me:

    1) there's no cover for ninja's you pussy

    2) your sword does roughly a bijillion more damage than the starter guns

    And I knew, I understood, being a space ninja is about being able to do powerslide decapitations and 360 castrations.

    Man I want Trinity.

    I think it is currently bugged, at least on the forums people say that the boss who is supposed to drop the Trinity chassis right now due to a bug drops the Rhino chassis, but I'm sure it will be fixed eventually.

    as for platinum I do recall on the forums a dev mention that you will have a chance to get platinum from just logging in (random generator reward) plus from some alerts you will be able to do so as well. They do seem to listen to feedback.

    That's awesome, now all they need to do is about half the price of stuff and I'll be down with this game so badly.

    Fuck I didn't even know you could slide and then do a special melee attack.
    I need to change my keybindings around.

    You can also do special backflips for extra movement if you crouch in the air I think.

    The proper way to go anywhere is to sprint for a second, crouch to slide, jump to flip and then roll out of it (which is kind of random and automatic and janky). This is literally faster than sprinting and does not use up your stamina.

    Yeah, btw, is the only way to get power back through power orbs?

  • ultimakayultimakay Registered User regular

    There is an artifact that I think gives power when an enemy is killed or potentially damaged. I've gathered from the forums that artifacts are random rewards from alert missions. Besides that yes the only way to get power back is from the orbs that drop.

    That's a pain. Makes me care less about not having trinity though.

    I'm probably going to hang onto energy way too hard now.

  • EchoEcho very gravitas Super Moderator, Moderator mod
    I don't know if I'm just imagining it, but I think energy orbs drop more often if you're low on energy.

    I've definitely gotten the same feeling, and when I do run out of energy it never seems that I am out for long. Having a higher power maximum alleviates some of those issues since it takes you longer to run out in the first place.

    I would make the sword asap, its a strictly better version of the skana and leveling up melee weapons usually takes longer then guns.

    As for the loot it is sort of a blend. For credits only 1 person needs to pick them up for the whole group to get them. For mods each person needs to go over and pick it up, but it exists for every person, so make sure to waypoint mod drops so the other people in the group can know where to grab them. The crafting drops I think operate like the mods, where to collect them you need to walk over them, they look like orangish vaguely cube shaped things.

    Maybe there's somethign wrong on my end.

    But the lack of mission information is kind of disturbing.

    For example, I was on the first mission trying to find a reactor to kill. After 10 minutes of wondering around, it turns out I was on the complete opposite of the where I'm suppose to be. Then when I'm suppose to escape, I was completely lost again and the mission timed out.

    I mean, would it hurt to put in some waypoints or something?
