Yeah, mainly ran into that during the times I was farming both copies of Xaku. The T5s for Naberus were.... surprisingly clear of such frustrations.A lot of people really underestimate how much Mother Tokens you get with a T5, likewise how... easy, those are to run with a good team. Particularly a good team that knows what the words "Do" and "Don't" mean. I specify this as I'm sure you've had a few "Mesa spends 15 minutes complaining about mission being bugged, all the while actively disregarding the notifications popping every five seconds telling the team to wait until the Infested are inside the bubble before killing them" runs before to as much amusement as I.
I'll admit something that looks like a dumb move... I've been trying to go through my relics and use up the old vaulted ones I've had from years ago - on Radiant. No radshares from me, though, and no fretting if I don't get something special. Here's the thing - I'm not in urgent need of the Platinum as total min-maxing is not a big drive of mine, I've proven willing to just replace the Platinum when a good coupon comes up, and these relics have been haunting me for a long time. It's basically spring cleaning.
I've actually gotten a few rares off of this drive, and will check the Warframe Market whenever it's time to cash these in.
So... I used the Affinity weekend to level up stuff again. It turns out, that pushing for just that little bit extra on some Kuva/Tenet weapons I hadn't finished, leveling all the 'Frames (still no Gauss), and using this new Basmu and Ceti Lacera.... I was able to push for my Legendary test.
Compared to what MR 30 was, the first Legend test was a disappointment. Primary weapon only, 3 waves of late Sortie enemies, no abilities allowed. You only get 3 lives. I broke out Atlas Prime and Vermisplicer and with a lot of jumping around, only needed two practice attempts (one to find out there were no abilities so Trinity wouldn't cut it, the other with Atlas where I barely passed) and then passed the real test first try.
I spent my first Legendary core on Primed Chilling Grasp. I had a lot of unranked Primed mods I could have done as I'm way behind on Endo farming, but that one seemed the right choice at the time.
Despite not being able to level up any further, there is still quite a bit of content I need to catch up on (Steel Path, a bunch of odds-and-ends weapons, more Kuva/Tenet stuff). However, having taken just 4 months to catch up 8 ranks, it is REALLY time I consider taking days off (not 2 whole weeks or my clan boots me), and some weekend days in particular, so I can catch up on other games. Or at the very least, being really restrictive of my time in-game.
Meaning I may go to a "two week update" schedule.
The 'Frames I leveled were Hildryn, Protea, Xaku, Grendel, and Nidus Prime. Of those five? Grendel's the funniest to watch, and most useful for Defense or Survival far as I can tell - which kind of makes it compete with Nidus Prime there. Jury's still out on Hildryn, Protea, or Xaku, although I was informed Protea is nuts on Deimos.
