Protea Abilities, New Events & Unit, Corpus Update, Scaling Excavators & Devstream 138 (Warframe)


Welcome to Last Week in Warframe, A series
where I keep you updated on the past week in Warframe by compiling all news, announcements
and general posts by the Developers from the Forums, Reddit, Twitter and even their livestreams. Timestamps to each topic as well as their
sources are in the description, so without further ado let’s go over DE’s announcements
and news from the 3rd to the 23th of February. To start this episode off we have Devstream
138 which focussed on the sound team. It’s very interesting stuff and if you want
to listen to how they make the sounds for the game, the Devstream video is linked in
the description. The first thing they announced was the lovely
date of Tennocon. Its on the 11th of July. Woooh. Primed Chamber will be available at the Tennocon
relay after its addition to the Baro Ki”Teer shop recently. https://youtu.be/f69eOPJkE6w?t=585 Coming next to Warframe will be Operation
Scarlet Spear and as it states on the screen. Tenno Squads in railjacks and on the ground
must link up their operations to quell the invasion. https://youtu.be/f69eOPJkE6w?t=505
Operation Scarlet Spear will have a new relay like headquarters to start the missions and
yes that does say Operation Link & as they previously mentioned on Devstream 137. Squad link
is planned. https://youtu.be/f69eOPJkE6w?t=2060
A new sentient weapon that we’ll acquire will be a part of operation scarlet spear
and they showed that on stream as you can see. Aiming down sights will make it automatic
and hip firing will need to be held down as it’ll become a beam weapon. https://youtu.be/f69eOPJkE6w?t=1455
The previously shown Moa will be coming to fortuna with scarlet spear as well
https://youtu.be/f69eOPJkE6w?t=2953 A new fighter that they showed off will also
be a part of scarlet spear. https://youtu.be/f69eOPJkE6w?t=2495 Separate from Operation Scarlet Spear will
be the Deadlock Protocol, The corpus are attempting a resurrection, uncover the secrets about
their founder and end their plans with the new Warframe Protea, in the Corpus Ship Remaster. This update will bring Corpus Content like
the Radiation Beam weapon. https://youtu.be/f69eOPJkE6w?t=1019
Coming with Deadlock protocol will also have a Corpus Gunblade as shown And alongside sound they showed off a bit
of the corpus ship tilset. https://youtu.be/f69eOPJkE6w?t=2610 As for Protea, they showed off the in game
effects & sounds for each of her abilities. https://youtu.be/f69eOPJkE6w?t=1059 The sound team shared that they’re trying
to improve sound indications of your health state but the difficulty of doing so is determining
the priority of your status. https://youtu.be/f69eOPJkE6w?t=1961 They also showed off a new work in progress
sentient and I’ll play it for you now to finish up the Devstream 138 segment. https://youtu.be/f69eOPJkE6w?t=3790 The Next round of Tennogen that being Round
18 has been announced but currently has no release date. The round will include the Baruuk Bedouin
Skin, Garuda Tiamat Skin, Ivara Graxx, Ivara Zamariu, Oberon Youkai Skin, Wisp Delusion
Skin, The Garuda Sakhura Helmet, Heavy Blade Mizar, Heavy Blade Suprema, Polearm Ion, Polearm
Jotunheim, Tow Handed Nikana Arashi skin, the Armalyst Syandana, The Sethar Syandana,
Zamariu Syandana, Eucyon Chest Armor, Seraphim Chest Armor & the Sclera Oculus. [2] –
Tennogen Round 18 Announced – Showcase https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1166780-tennogen-round-18-accepted-items/ Update 27.1 launched on the 4th of Feb with
Kuva Lich changes, such as buffing converted kuva liches, removing the liches ability to
kill you on a failed parazon stab, the ability to see what Kuva Weapon your lich will have
when hunting larvlings by an icon above their head, which also allows you to skip that weapon
by continuing with the mission and not executing it. Valence Transfer was changed to Valence Fusion
where any stat rolled kuva weapon of the same type can be used to upgrade the stats of your
main kuva weapon of that type and it also introduced the Kuva Bramma, Kuva Nukor & Kuva
Hind. The parazon modding screen now showcases previous
attempts, the chance for a lich to generate with an ephemera is 20% and numerous fixes
were made. Ivara now has a leverian exhibit & her deluxe
skin can be purchased in game for platinum. 4 new augment mods were added, two for Baruuk,
1 for Garuda and the last one for Hildryn. There’s an image on screen that shows which
syndicates you can acquire them from. More fixes were made but there’s a card
on screen, a link in the description to my coverage of that update if you want to know
it all. [3] –

27.1 launched on each console, that being xbox one, playstation & Nintendo switch but
they also received Tennogen Bundle 44, that includes the Jotunheim Syandana, Ivara Kuvael
Huntress Skin, Loki Jotunheim Skin, Saryn Ion skin, Frost Hisame Skin & the Jotunheim
Spirit Oculus. The patch notes for the console update can
be found in the description. For Nintendo switch players there is also
a link down there that will take you to a forum post about Motion Control options and
a default binding change. [4] –

https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1168443-switch-new-motion-controls-option-and-default-binding-change/ On top of the release of that update, DE released
a feedback thread for the Kuva Lich changes that were made. If you wish to share your feedback. Also in regards to the Kuva Bramma DE Marcus
had stated on twitter that we can expect something to negate the self-damage in the future and
since Cautious shot doesn’t work on bows, we can expect a bow specific mod. Rebecca did chime in and say it cautious shot
can’t work as a default passive for all weapons due to parent child setup of all mods,
and that it would lead to other issues. So bows will be getting its own. [5] –

https://twitter.com/rebbford/status/1225449554339942401 Hotfix 27.1.1 also went live during this period
and it launched the Prime Vault with Nekros prime & Oberon prime on all platforms plus
it expanded the Nightwave Intermission tier ranks to 90. Hotfix 27.1.2 launched later and now players
can get the same weapon back to back from a lich. They brought back this previous addition because
now players can see what weapon they can get and can choose to skip it. This hotfix alongside Lich fixes, tweaked
the toxic ancient’s area of effect blast effect timing so that it is now visible before
any actual damage occurs. [6] –

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kph-l-H080U Rebecca had also responded to a forum post
asking for enemies marked for a parzon stab to go into a down but not out state like thralls
and if not parazon stabbed they will be killed in 2 to 3 seconds. Rebecca’s response was. This is common feedback that will change the
pace of lethality to a degree, but I am super interested to compile a consensus on this. [8] –

was internally discussed on the 30th January this year and was added to the to do list. Later Scott tweeted that scaling excavators
will be coming in the next mainline. [9] –

tighter, punchier, more focused and more in control. And I’ll play the clip before finishing the episode.

  1. Oh excellent! Another quick point by point video almost perfectly explaining the patch notes. You’re a saviour, man, you are!!

  2. That thumbnail looks like crap.

  3. Why the hell they keep adding things that we cant access from orbiter … do we really need new loading screens?

  4. DE told their Japanese players they will be updating Railjack every month after Railjack releasers, wow DE really have turned out to be a bunch of liars… sorry Japanese fans,, we wore lied too as well…..

  5. Where do you get images like the one at 9:02 from? I am thinking of getting these for wallpaper use.

  6. Ya didn't talk about the hotfix for console. Had a bug for a new enemy unit that snuck itself into the Vallis. [PH] Carrier. A sentient carrier from the sentient tomb trailer. Spawns up to four sentients, battalysts and conculysts. Couldn't be killed. But had no attacks. Just flew around aimlessly after it spawned it's backup and they died.

  7. Easy solution for all one way pre death state problem, make parazon enemies and RJ fighters drop loot when health reaches 0. The larvas already drop kuva regardless of finisher

  8. I have a strange feeling that next Friday the next dev stream will come and with it the release date of operation scarlet spear

  9. The rewind audio stuff is so cool

  10. 6:16 thank me later

  11. I sure thought we could have killed the lotus. But Nop … either she comes back or they input the new enemy a little bit before her department in to the story, thus keep showing the missing glitching lotus information messages to those where the lotus already is away …

  12. 5:50 space mom is back!?

  13. Have they ever announced the winner of the " Be a real Space Ninja" contest??

  14. They better fix (remove) host migration before they launch this joke they're calling squad link, it's gonna be grrrrrrreat….

  15. By parent and Child mod setup they mean what?

  16. I think that nobody will use Protea's rewind unless it gives actual benefit. You never want to go back while playing warframe because that slows down mission clearing.

  17. 4:00
    Look at the name of the weapon!
    Is that a JoJo reference!?

  18. @Iwoply is lowkey the timestamp guy of the Warframe community. You’re a real one chief

  19. I can't hear the difference on the master DSP change.
    Maybe it would be better if they used the same footage and toggled it on and off in real time

  20. Yay, I'll be able to get my prime chamber which I missed because weekend <3
