Anyone else tried Gauss yet? He can be surprisingly narly and durable for a speed frame. And that sprint speed is no joke either.
The main reason why I want to complete The New Strange quest line is to gain access to the Onslaught Sanctuary to grind ranks more easily. Besides that thank you for the advice on what frames to use and warnings on what mods will become less useful later on.Also, forewarning @ZeroVoidTime : Do the weekly Ayatan runs whenever possible, and try to have at least three Ayatans always unfilled in your inventory. Sometimes "Fill three Ayatans" is a Nightwave objective, and it's infinitely easier to have them already on-hand than trying to hunt them in missions. Also Ayatan runs are a quick access point to the Void, and Void missions drop mods from containers (with missions base level 20+ having a chance of dropping the extremely important Multishot and Efficiency mods). Also as a forewarning, there will eventually come a point wherein Redirection and Vitality only help so much with your endurance: Eventually you're going to want a frame that can make itself invisible (such as aforementioned Ivara, Loki, or Ash), make itself either invulnerable or effectively so (Rhino, Nezha, and Valkyr all immediately spring to mind), or has some way to deflect incoming fire (Frost, Volt, and Zephyr all say hello here). This is because you will see shit like bleed procs doing 100+ damage a tick, Nightmare enemies doing almost as much damage per bullet on an automatic hit-scan weapon, or so-on.
Kudos for being a Founder. I've played long enough that I probably should have made that investment, but c'est la vie.I feel like I should have spoken in this thread a long time ago, as despite being on hiatus from this game for a long time, I'd been playing it long enough to have an Excalibur Prime (got it like the second-to-last day it was available).
Nightwave tends to be quite nice with tapping off on various resources and whatnot. A little less forgiving than the old Alert system for new players (since there's less taxi-ing available from higher level players), but once somebody's achieved around 7-8 MR it quickly switches to being at least as good (at least, it has with the tweaks made since Nightwave 1.0).It's eerie how they seem to have JUST the ideal Nightwave when I need it as of late. Ran out of credits updating some of my weaker mods? Nightwave reliant on the Index (for which I must confess I got a credit booster and milked it to get about 25 million - should hold me over for a little bit). Whining about Apothics and several key aura mods I still never got? Nightwave involving the Silver Grove (and I thought to get the Botanist mod yesterday too).
If it's any consolation: I started in February 2013 and I only just hit MR18 something like Friday or Saturday.I REALLY need to get caught up on Plains of Eidolon and Orb Vallis. I still don't have all the amp/Zaw/Kitgun parts mastered (and I have a LOT of things mastered - I was rank 23 when I stopped and just catching up on my existing gear leveling backlog, aside from Archwings and their weapons, got me just into rank 25).
Very soon, yes. My understanding is it's intended to be out in the next mainline.....oh yes, I also got my first Kuva weapon recently. Those weapons.... come from one of the more tedious parts of the game - having to grind high-level Grineer missions in some bad nodes and then use a special kind of relic to get the necessary keywords to finish off a special boss. I went with a Toxin-based Brakk and my second weapons going to be a Heat-based Bramma.
....I hear they're going to put in a Corpus variant of that soon?
They know their audience well. All they need now is swim trunk / bikini cosmetics and DE will be rolling in more money than they can shake a stick at.Oh, and Dog Days of Summer is one of the more hilarious tactical alerts.
