Shrine of the Eidolon: Hotfix 22.16.3
*We are aware and investigating a known issue where Clients appear to be dealing 0 damage to Teralyst Synovias, but in reality you ARE dealing damage, the UI is a liar.
If you started your St. Paddy’s celebrations a day early and were too busy with your green-coloured liquids to watch this week’s Devstream – worry not! As usual, we have our overview ready to go.
Learn more about the Endless Kuva plans, Void Onslaught, and more in the full episode on YouTube (in spoiler), or check out the “too-long-didn’t-watch” version below.Spoiler
While Sheldon originally promised a Dev Workshop, we decided that our plans for Endless Kuva deserved a showcase on our Devstream instead!
These endless missions will occur on Survival on the Fortress itself! Enemies will drop a pickup, the Kuva Filter, which once inserted into a life support tower will turn it into a Kuva Tower (name placeholder). It will no longer restore life support – instead, it will filter out Kuva!
You’ll have to defend this tower for X amount of time from enemies who are very unhappy that you’ll be taking their Kuva. Once the timer on the tower runs out, the filtered Kuva is yours!
Zephyr Prime Access is launching on March 20th, so here’s a quick peek at our bird friend in the Arsenal (including the TennoCon 2018 armor!):Spoiler
Scott still wants to look at her kit further as there are a few lingering issues that we’d like to evolve. He specifically mentioned how her hover functions in closed environments, as well as the speed of her number 2.
Corpus Spider Work-In-Progress
As mentioned in a previous stream, this little guy turns into a saw frisbee – fun!Spoiler
These big boys turn invisible until you deal a
surprising significant amount of damage them to them.
Dark Sectors – Void OnslaughtSpoiler
Some of you might have seen the accidental appearance of a new mission type on the PC leaderboards list: [PH]Void Onslaught. A few savvy Tenno connected the dots to the new “Dark Sector but not actually anymore” mode we’ve been working on.
For those unaware, this is a dungeon-like time-limited mode where you try to clear as many sectors and get as high of a score as you can within a set time limit. Each sector will have its own different mission condition and will be procedurally generated.
As Scott likes to call it, our plans are kind of like the kitchen sink of Warframe – platter of everything at warp speed.
For those who have kept up with previous Devstreams, you will no longer have to stand at waypoints to clear sectors. Instead, you pick up key fragments that are dropped via combat. Other small tidbits mentioned:
Here it is in action:Spoiler
Warframe Fighting Game
We previewed this on Prime Time 200, but for those of you who missed it:
This game started off as a concept by a community member, Loco Crazy. We loved it so much we had to make it a reality! Hopefully Tenno can see this in-game sometime in the future.
Since her decoupling from the IPS system, we have been revisiting Khora’s kit! Scott has rough abilities laid out for her, but we aren’t quite ready to share! We’ll hopefully have something to show soon.
Uranus Defense Tile
Those of you who frequent Neo Fissures are probably very familiar with the Ur-AH-nus Defense tile. Variety is the spice of life so we’re adding a tile variant for Uranus Defense missions, a preview of which you can see below:
New Particles System
PhysX is no longer being supported, so we’re making a new GPU-based particle system that will work on all on all platforms! We’ll be phasing out PhysX particles and adding our own moving into the future, which you can either turn on or off depending on the strength of your GPU (or overall love for particles).
This new system will also interact with your Warframe as well!Spoiler
Daily Tribute System
Those of you who watched Devstream 100 might remember the Daily Tribute changes we discussed, namely the introduction of “Tracks”. These would allow players to pick what item would be unlocked at their next login milestone. We are still hoping to implement this when our team has time!
THE REMOTE OBSERVER, VOL 24.5
Another mainline graced our PC players this week – and with it came a slew of juicy changes and fixes. For a tl;dr of what shipped, keep reading below.

See you tomorrow for Devstream #108!
There are some other known issues we are working on, including Nekros' Shadows of the Dead not functioning properly as well as Vor’s Prize.
Shrine of the Eidolon: Update 22.16.0
Mainline Disclaimer Redux:
Tenno! It's ANOTHER mainline! While we've omitted a lot of Work-in-progress items like Khora, this Update contains all the changes and fixes we've been working away on this past month. Like all Mainlines so far this year, there may be a few bumps/unintended partial work that has shipped. We've checked it out but there's always something that falls through the cracks. Please let us know if you find something odd or very broken!
If you're new to Warframe and you've missed our handy Dojo guide here: https://www.warframe.com/news/the-tenno-guide-to-clans, don't worry. The link isn't going anywhere, and we're about to detail out what 'Dojo Remaster' means for you!
First, it's worth mentioning this is largely rooted in improved functionality across the board. We do plan on releasing even more updates soon with further lighting improvements and the 'Build your Own Obstacle Course', so keep checking back for that.
And now, the Remaster!
With this Remaster we've aimed to do a few things:
*Please note that the following items cannot be contributed to the Clan Vault:
Discord Rich Presence:
Let your Discord friends see where and what you’re playing on Warframe! If enabled, your Discord account will show the following information in real time while you play:
A whole new setting called Controller Interface now allows you to have the option of AutoDetect! AutoDetect will try to detect what you're using, when you use it. So if you prefer the drag-n-drop functionality of the Mods screen, you can keep using a mouse to do that and see the regular keyboard and mouse UI, however, when you next pick up a controller and press a button, the UI will detect that and refresh to show you controller button Icons instead.
Within the Controller Interface you can also permanently toggle on/off the controller interface, which forces the UI into either regular (keyboard and mouse) mode, or controller mode (this works separately from auto-detection and Steam Big Picture mode).
Lastly, you can now choose the UI Icon set under the new setting Controller Icon Set. You can choose between XB1, XB 360, PS4, Steam, and AutoDetect (AutoDetect is essentially XB1). However, using a Steam controller will always result in Steam Icons.
Eidolon Shrine Changes:
As most Tenno have discovered, Eidolon Shards are necessary to continue your hunt for the Gantulyst and Hydrolyst. These changes are not towards the Shrine mechanic itself, but for the way Shards are consumed if a unfortunate Host migration or loss of connection occurs.
Visual Effects improvements.
Based on feedback we are making some changes to the intensity of Visual Effects in Warframe, especially in the context of Eidolon fights!
Can you believe it, Tenno? Not only are we celebrating Warframe’s 5 Year Anniversary, but it’s also Prime Time #200!!
Get yourself comfortable and hydrated, we’re occupying your screens for 2 full hours tonight!
Your hosts, Rebecca and Megan, will be joined by some of the Devstream crew and a very special Tenno guest! We’ve got Twitch Drops, MANY secret surprises and reveals along the way (even the Devstream crew don’t know), Stalker makes an appearance, and the best part: it’s all in good fun to raise donations for Paws United, a local non-profit group of animal lovers that rescues, rehabilitates and adopts dogs into loving homes!
Not only is the stream double the length, but we’ve also got 2x the Top Comments and 2x the Fan Art!
PLUS, don’t miss your chance at ZEPHYR Prime Access giveaways for a lucky viewer!
Well, glad you asked! Update 22.16.0 is mainline, so it’s still cooking and getting nice and crispy to be served tomorrow, March 15th!
As a preview to what we’ll be serving up tomorrow, your Dojos are getting a nice coat of paint with some improved functionality. If your decorating senses aren’t tingling yet, they should be!
While you wait, we’ve got Dex alerts up on all Platforms celebrating 5 years of Warframe! http://www.warframe.com/anniversary
On March 20, Vauban Prime, Fragor Prime and Akstiletto Prime will enter the Prime Vault, and their Relics will no longer drop in the game.
If you already wield the power of these Primes or have their Relics in your inventory, they will remain after the Vaulting.
Don’t delay, Tenno. Get those Primes before they’re gone!
