Anyone played this before? I've been holding it off but decided to give it a try and thought was rather neat. Surprisingly really good graphics for a f2p game and the concepts seems rather interesting too.

I played warframe a lot a year or two ago. The game has changed so much and theres been so many release of characters that I lost motivation to play it. Very fun game though.

The progression treadmill when I last played it was really brutal. They basically force you to drop cash on the game if you want to actually accomplish anything.

Other than that.. There's really no cooperation/teamplay in multiplayer back when I was playing, everyone kinda did their own thing. The combat's decent despite all this, but in the end it comes down to how long you can tolerate the grueling slog for upgrades/unlocks.

I tend to avoid F2P games like this. I'd rather play ones that charge for cosmetic stuff etc instead of progression.

I play from occasionally but I log in everyday (for the daily tribute). I used to play a lot (I've been playing for 3 years and migrated / restarted from PS4 to PC), but right now there isn't much for me to do in-game, since I've done everything, except the raids (aka trials).


A few important things you need to know if you want to play this game:

1. You do not need to spend real cash to get ahead. I cannot stress this one enough. Save your starter platinum for weapon / warframe inventory slots and use them only when you really need them (unless you want lots of variety). And you don't even need that may of them. You can do end-game missions (the 3rd daily sortie mission) with only a minimum of equipment.

In terms of frames, with only Excalibur (a starter frame), Loki, and Frost, you can do even the end-game sorties mission. Every other frame is just there to add variety to play style.

The strongest weapons in the game (Tonkor, Synoid Simulor, and Sancti Tigris (regular one is also very powerful)). don't require that much resources to craft. In fact Synoid simulor and Sancti Tigris can't even be purchase from the in-game store, you get them from syndicate standing (or trade/buy with other player). With just any 1 on those, you can do everything, every other weapon is there to add variety.


2. Don't buy Orokin Reactors / Catalysts / Forma with real cash. At first they may seem rare, but reactors and catalysts pop up regularly from alerts (every time there is a dev stream), invasions, and special events. You'll eventually end up with so many of them that you won't ever bother crafting them. You only need to put those on weapons / frames you intend to take to end game content (sorties / raids).


3. Never buy resources with real cash, they're not hard to get you just need to know which planet they drop from.


4. Prime frame / weapons are not important. Even if people tend to regard them very highly (due to the grind / luck required to get all the parts), they only offer marginal improvements in terms of stats from the regular version. You can still do end game content with the regular version.


5. If you have a mobile / tablet, download one of the Warframe alerts app. Since cosmetic items that would normally require real cash purchase as well as other rare mods / items will drop from alerts, it's good to have those notifications when you have access to your computer, but are not currently playing.


6. Try to join a clan, some blueprints can only be bought (in game currency) from the dojo after the blueprint has been researched. You could always try to create your own clan and research everything, but that would take a very long time and lots of resources.


7. the Warframe wiki is you best friend.


8. On the wiki, research orokin vault, you'll eventually want to do those with other players (you need 3 others for a vault run, easily found in the recruiting text chat tab.)


9. If there is an alert on a node you don't have access to and you want that specific reward (especially auras), don't hesitate to ask for a taxi in the recruiting text chat tab.


10. if it even starts to feel grindy, go play something else. End game is basically a Diablo-esque loot grind to get only marginally stronger.


You can add me in-game in you want, my warframe account is Orpheus__Fool (note: 2 underscores) and steam is orpheus_fool (note: 1 underscore).

If you like grinding a lot and facing a boss or re doing a mission over a lot then this game is for you, but if you don't like grind heavy games then you might want to skip this game.
