Warframe update 1.61 Patch Notes

MASK OF THE REVENANT: UPDATE 23.5.0

Nakak has discovered a new oddity – Once you’ve reached Observer (Rank 2) with the Quills, visit her in Cetus to uncover its mysterious connection with the Plains of Eidolon…

Since this is a miniquest, and therefore isn’t included in the Codex for easy tracking of steps, we’ve laid out the process below for you all. This contains spoilers for what to do in the Quest, but not for the lore contained in it — read at your own risk!

NEW WARFRAME: REVENANT

Introducing the 36th Warframe, Revenant! Afflicted by Sentient energy, Revenant rises from the shadows to prey on the weak and unwilling.

PASSIVE: Shield depletion smashes nearby enemies with a knockdown shockwave.

ENTHRALL
Convert a target into a zealous thrall. Thralls turn on their allies and enthrall through damage. On death, they disintegrate into a damaging pillar of energy. The thrall horde remains under Revenants spell until this ability runs out.

MESMER SKIN
Become enveloped in Sentient energy, which redirects damage and stuns all those who dare attack. Stunned enemies can be Enthralled at no energy cost.

REAVE
Dash through enemies as a wall of Sentient energy, leeching shields and health from any encountered, enhanced for thralls.

DANSE MACABRE
Erupt with a multitude of Eidolon energy beams and sweep a circle of death around Revenant. Incoming damage is redirected to the beams. Hold fire to boost range and damage, while also increasing energy consumption. Damage type can adapt to select defenses. Thralls killed by this leave overshield pickups.*

* To invoke a more Sentient theme with Revenant, the damage output of the Danse Macabre can adapt to certain enemy defenses as seen by Sentients in the wild!
3 special adaptations exist for the damage types of Danse Macabre:

Striking Armor will adapt Danse Macabre into Corrosive Damage.
Striking Shields will adapt Danse Macabre into Magnetic Damage.
Striking Infested Flesh will adapt Danse Macabre into Gas Damage.

This will be at a base 20% Status Chance, amplified by holding the default “fire weapon” trigger.

PHANTASMA
Irradiate enemies with a continuous stream of deadly plasma. Charging secondary fire releases a glob of plasma that erupts with homing bomblets on impact.

VANIA HELMET
A uniquely-style alternate helmet for Revenant.

VETALA ARMOR
Make Revenant whole with his signature armor.

KASGA KAVAT ARMOR
The signature Kavat Armor of Revenant.

TENNOGEN ROUND 13 (Warframe Skin bundles)

TennoGen Round 13 Warframe skins created by talented Tenno artists have landed! To find these items, visit the in-game Market.

VAUBAN CITADEL SKIN
A fortress of ingenuity and style. Plus unique Citadel styled Tesla grenade!

MORTIER HEAVY BLADE SKIN
Sunder all attackers with the signature weapon skin of Vauban Citadel.

MARQUIS SUGATRA
The signature sugatra of Vauban Citadel.

VAUBAN CITADEL COLLECTION
Reinforce allies with this ingenious warrior. Contains the Vauban Citadel Skin, the Mortier Heavy Axe Skin, and the Marquis Sugatra.

Vauban Changes & Fixes:

  • Vauban’s Passive has changed! Vauban’s new passive: “Deal 25% extra damage to incapacitated enemies”.
    • Whether by Vauban’s own CC’ing abilities, or the abilities of others, Vauban can amplify his damage against the incapacitated!
  • Tesla is now ‘held to charge’ for increased Damage & Status Chance.
  • Increased the particle FX size for a fully charged Tesla.
  • Repelling Bastille Augment now pushes additional enemies outwards every 4s.

New Noggles!
Limbo, Atlas, and Chroma Noggles are available in the in-game Market!

Designer Glyph Pack!
A collection of Glyphs created by artists in the Warframe community.

Keep an eye out for our TennoCon 2018 Legendary and Make-A-Wish custom Glyphs that will be sported by their respective Tenno!

NEW MINIGAME: FRAME FIGHTER
Challenge your friends to a side-by-side duel — Warframes newest lunchtime project Frame Fighter has arrived!

Inspired by classic fighting games and long-time Warframe Fan LocoCrazy_, this arcade fighter will transform your Orbiter into a battleground! No quarters required!

Visit Simaris and acquire the Ludoplex — a new home for all of Warframe’s minigames — through Standing. Choose from Excalibur, Volt and Mag, each with their unique Ability. Unlock additional Frame Fighter Warframes by discovering Fragments throughout the Solar Chart.* If the scanned Warframe’s Prime is in your Inventory, you can toggle to the Prime version of the acquired character – custom Fashion Frame applied as well!

*With the addition of Frame Fighter Fragment spawns, we have changed the Spawn chances of Cephalon Fragments if you don’t have your Personal Quarters unlocked, to a 100% chance of a Cephalon Fragment spawning, instead of 50/50.

Additionally, blast enemies in the side-scrolling ‘Wyrmius’ minigame, and flap your way through obstacles with the ‘Happy Zephyr’ minigame, both available through Simaris.

NEW OPERATOR AMP COMPONENTS

Rahn Prism: Pulses void energy through a fine-cut pavilion to riddle targets with flashing fire.

Phahd Scaffold: Launch energy discs that ricochet off victims and surfaces, vectoring toward a new target with each strike.

Anspatha Brace: A dual-purpose brace that reduces void energy regeneration delay, and decreases regeneration time, though not as quickly as a single-purpose brace

NEW DOJO ‘NATURAL’ DECORATIONS
Bring the outside inside to complete your hermit Dojo oasis! Choose from many nature themed Decorations such as (but not limited to):

  • Asteroid Rock Wall
  • Waterfall (Gentle)
  • Ice Stalactite
  • Spinklat Plant
  • And so much more!

Additions:

  • Added new Lotus Transmissions for Kuva Siphon missions when attempting to destroy a braid. The new lines better emphasize the clouds being integral to success.

  • Added a directional arrow Decoration for the Dojo Obstacle Course Architect!
  • Show your allegiance to the mighty Clem with the new Grineer Themed UI.

Capture Mission Changes:
Capture Targets now have a 1 minute Bleedout timer after being downed for 30 seconds, upon which Lotus will now alert you that you’re running out of time to capture the Target. Capture missions had become an unofficial Endless mission with the tactic of leaving the Target squirming on the ground for hours while players dealt with the never-ending horde of enemies. The Bleedout timer has been added as a countermeasure to fix the unintended Endless Capture missions.

Changes:

  • Updated the ‘High Contrast UI Theme’ based on feedback in an effort to better aid colourblind Tenno.
