Update 29.5: Deimos Arcana



d505b56ab26743418ade08cd8d0a0797.jpg

Since the initial Heart of Deimos release, you’ve delved into the putrid hills and caverns of the Cambion Drift and found a familiar place with the Entrati. As Deimos continues to fester within the Origin System, its insides twist and turn to expose new growth and life!

In this update, Deimos: Arcana uproots newly unearthed Isolation Vaults in The Underground of the Cambion Drift. The new Necramech, Bonewidow , with sword wielding weaponry awaits you in these unexplored rancid tunnels.

Prepare your Tranq Rifle and aim strong, the Undazoa and Nexifera have been spotted occupying the rotting landscape of the Cambion Drift. Remember to look both ways before crossing the Exocrine; the new Deimos Mitosid can attack at any angle!

Arm yourself with a slew of Infested weapons , build new Infested Kitguns , shatter enemies with the Gara Kaleida Collection , and much more with Deimos: Arcana!

***Please note, Test Cluster specific changes are at the very bottom of the Notes!*

NEW DEIMOS ISOLATION VAULT BOUNTIES:

The Cambion Drift Underground you’ve come to recognize swells with new areas to discover.

Mother has 3 new Isolation Vault Bounties to complete! These new Isolation Vault Bounties become available after completing the initial Isolation Vault tier, with the respective Mother then offering the new Vault Bounty. As you unlock these new Vault Bounties, the difficulty will increase to match the prerequisite Isolation Vault and rewards will differ per Bounty.

In addition, 4 new Entrati Vault ruins await you in Isolation Vault Bounties!

d55e4add23417e380740506cf0ec14d0.jpg

General Isolation Vault Changes:

  • Removed the Vome/Fass cycle reset on the Isolation Vault Bounties tiers.

    • Oftentimes the Vome/Fass cycle reset during an Isolation Vault Bounty was understandably confusing, for new players especially, and was reported as more of a “bug” than a feature – so we’ve removed its effect on Isolation Vault Bounty tiers! Also, with the addition of the new Isolation Vault Bounties, the time it may take squads/solo players to complete them all could exceed the Vome/Fass cycles.
  • Increased the speed of Loid/Otak in the Isolation Vault!

  • Reduced Loid/Otak’s base Health by 37.5% to compensate for the speed increase.

    • The slow speed of Loid/Otak was common feedback to be addressed, but increasing the speed made their journey too easy as enemies barely put a scratch into them as they attempted to catch up.
  • Changed Otak/Loids defend HUD marker to the standard yellow version to help differentiate between Allies and enemies.

  • Adjusted Loid/Otaks path to create a more evenly spaced consistent length path to avoid a long slow return to the Vault when all 4 Generators are activated, or when clusters of Generators are very close together.

  • Adjusted Isolation Vault Transmission flow at the very start to speed things up a bit and get into the phases a little faster.

  • Scintillants have a chance to respawn in Isolation Vault Bounties.

    • The new Isolation Vault Bounties bring you back through the previously completed Vaults and further into the Underground. Having Scintillant respawn grants another kick at the can even if Scintillant was already found in a Vault.
  • Esophages in Isolation Vault Bounties now have a press and hold context action to avoid accidentally interacting, and thus having to go all the way back down to do the Vault Generators.

  • Rebalanced enemy Voidrig (and the upcoming Bonewidow) Isolation Vault fights for a more fair experience that embraces the precedent set with Kuva Liches:

    • *Enemy Voidrig & Bonewidow Necramechs now have the ‘Lich’ treatment with vulnerability to Status Effects, meaning you can now apply Status Effects to Necramechs! Additionally, certain damage immunities and diminishing returns for Warframe abilities have been added to balance this out.
      • The damage immunities apply to movement abilities, such as Banshee’s Sonic Boom, to prevent yeeting the Necramech into the sun. The diminishing returns are present to also prevent 1HKOs – on par with Kuva Liches.
    • Increased the cooldown time when the Voidrig (and Bonewidow) cast their invulnerability shield while in their “armless” phase.
      • Necramechs are intended to have shorter cooldowns while missing both arms. The cooldown reduction was too high however and you’d often see Voidrig Necramechs recasting their shield within seconds!
  • Added an objective marker to the Bait Device if your Bait throw missed the monster-door.

NEW ISOLATION VAULT ENCOUNTERS:

New Isolation Vault Bounties also have 3 new encounter types within the Bounty!

Deimos Delicacies!

Daughter has tasked you to escort/protect a friendly POLYP-HOG JUGGERNAUT that is searching for Fungal Polyps! But we all know what happens when someone bothers us while we’re eating…

Infested Research!

Curious behaviors have been observed of the Infested interacting with the organic fluids in the underground caves. Subvert the fluid extraction device and throw it back at them to collect samples!

Cracks in Deimos!

There is a mysterious mist wafting throughout the area, driving the creatures within mad! Negate the effects of the mist with the Emitter Unit and seal the mist fissures before the creature's attempt to open the fissures.

NEW DEIMOS ENEMY – MITOSID

It takes two to tango, Tenno. Previously known as “Splitter,” the clever Mitosid splits in twain to divide and conquer as the Diploid. Both the Basal and Feral Diploid make up for what they lack in maneuverability with what they have in appendages!

*****New Mitosid Mod Set*

We anticipated shipping a Mitosid Mod Set with Deimos: Arcana. After review, these Mods needed a bit more time in the oven, and we wanted to make this clear for those who may have come across them on the Test Cluster in any form to explain their fate!. We’ll return to the drawing board and ship at a later date!

Aerial attacks now execute a spin attack that deals +20% damage repeating 2 times in succession.

Mitosid Carapace

+60% Armor, +90% Health

Mitosid Claws

+90% Slash, +60% Status Chance

NEW ENTRATI MEMBER OFFERINGS

Grandmother has a new ‘Mend the Family’ option that allows you to provide Deimos Resources for Tokens of each Entrati member.

  • Here with Grandmother, ‘Mend the Family’ gives you another option for those spare Resources, Gems, and Fish Parts to put towards Tokens outside of their usual Entrati member role. For example, use a mix of Resources and Fish parts for Son Tokens! Use a mix of Gems and Resources for Daughter Tokens! Keep checking back to see how you can Mend the Family.

He now stands ready to offer his service to you. Complete the double-sided look with the Mask, Tail, and Wings.

Loid has come into possession of the Ayatan Kitha Sculpture! Struck to commemorate the Entrati family’s power and prestige, as well as safeguarding their memories of one another. Many things changed in the years that followed, and that which had once shone brightly grew dark and dim. But even a single Ayatan Star may make all the difference.

NEW INFESTED K-DRIVE!

Grandmother has gotten her hands on a new Infested K-Drive and it can be yours by completing each of her Races out in the Cambion Drift! Once you’ve acquired the Ferverspine, Gristlebuck, Nodulite, and Steeba parts visit your friend Roky in Fortuna to build the Infested K-Drive!

DEIMOS QUALITY OF LIFE CHANGES:

Tenno have spent a lot of time with the Entrati family, and have shared valuable insights on how to improve their systems! Deimos Arcana brings many sought after quality-of-life improvements:

  • Vome/Fass time indicators now appear when viewing the map inside the Necralisk hub!

  • The mining drop rate of Thaumica has been doubled! We’ve also Reduced the chance of getting Namalon while Mining in the Cambion Drift so that the chance of getting Thaumica is significantly increased.

    • Both Necrathene and Thaumica were similarly rare, but Thaumic Distillate is used in a wider variety of Blueprints, so expect to see it appear more often from yellow mineral deposits.
  • Son’s Conservation tasks have been made more rewarding and accessible! There are two main factors to this change:

    • Higher quality Conservation captures will now provide better rewards, as they do in our other Free Roam landscapes. Scoring a “Good” capture will now provide 2 animal capture Tags instead of 1, and “Perfect” captures will award 3 Tags!
    • Son’s Token exchange has been reorganized, based on player inventory statistics. Smaller offerings will require more commonly found creatures, and larger offerings with more Tokens will require creatures that are harder to come by.
  • Necramechs will now increase max level by 2 for each Forma applied, up to Rank 40!

    • With twelve Mod slots to fill, borrowing the Polarity mechanics introduced with the Paracesis made perfect sense. This change also prompted a discussion to address the mission restrictions with Necramech leveling (Free Roam only). As a result, we’ve increased the Shared Affinity Range in Free Roam missions (see below for more details). We still have plans to allow deployable Necramech’s in normal mission modes at a later date – stay tuned!
    • If you have already reached Rank 30 on your Necramech prior to this update, you will retain the full Mastery Points for it. You are still free to level it to Rank 40 to unlock further Mod slots!
  • Enabled Shield-Gating for summoned Necramechs! You’ll now experience the brief invulnerability period when your Necramech Shield breaks.

  • Universal Medallions can now be traded in the Necralisk at Grandmother for Entrati Standing and Loid for Necraloid Standing.

  • The Latrox Une Bounty mission has received a balance pass to address both the length this mission takes and the Bonus being too challenging compared to others:

    • Doubled the Drone Shields Health.
    • The Drone Shield now regenerates after being emptied.
    • Samples now drop at a faster rate.
    • Less samples are required to complete the mission.

FREE ROAM SHARED AFFINITY CHANGE:

We’ve increased the Shared Affinity Range in Free Roam missions from 50 meters to 250 meters! When implementing the change to make Necramech’s level up to 40, it prompted the conversation of Necramech leveling and its restriction to Free Roam missions. With the addition of Bonewidow, it felt appropriate to dial the Shared Affinity Range up for these much larger tilesets. While it’s always ideal to stick together, we hope the 250 meter range allows you to both level up your Necramech faster and venture a bit farther in the landscape.

FISHING & CONSERVATION:

Undazoa and Nexifera now prowl across Deimos. Help Son study these new species of Infested wildlife!

36d0d0d98ce087356d5a3b3a5ac70375.png

UNDAZOA



These peculiar creatures inhabit the exocrine, consuming contaminants and depositing their eggs. They will not instigate an attack, but if you provoke an Undazoa, be wary of each variant’s unique defense.

*Acquire the Undazoa Echo-Lure and Pheromone Gland from Son’s Offerings!

NEXIFERA

These heavy creatures occupy caves, poised to drop from the ceiling onto unassuming victims. Each variant’s landing has a unique effect. Be quick if you hope to catch a Nexifera before it ascends! They will burrow into the ceiling to make a quick escape.

*Similar to Velocipods, the Nexifera is an ambient encounter creature you can find out in the Cambion Drift.

FLAGELLOCANTH
These specimens were originally parasites, breeding inside the wyrm-guts of Fass and scattered across Deimos in the debris of his explosive demise. They are drawn to his light. Processed Fass Residue is required to attract the Flagellocanth!

LOBOTRISCID

A muscular, three-tailed fish, the Lobotriscid trawls through Exocrine vapor across the surface of Deimos when Vome is dominant.

FISHING & CONSERVATION CHANGES & FIXES:

  • Enabled Imprinting and breeding for Predasites and Vulpaphyla.

    • Mutagens and Antigens are inherited through breeding, allowing pets to stack their benefits.
    • Predasites and Vulpaphyla can only be named when Gilded, so naming after hatching is skipped.
    • Predasites and Vulpaphyla can not be cross bred with non-modular pets.
    • Imprints of Predasites and Vulpaphyla can only be taken when the pet is Gilded.
  • Disabled Conservation Tranq and Track during the Heart of Deimos quest.

    • When it was enabled you wouldn't have been able to catch anything or see anything on map, but there was a chance to just happen across a start point.
  • Companion Predasites and Vulpaphylas now have their own description, seperate from the wild ones in the Cambion Drift.

  • Improvements to trails to address some of the more drastic upwards jumps required to follow the path.

  • Made a bunch of updates to Lure sounds and mix effects. Added more variations to scat burst sound (yum). Also made adjustments to transmission timing.

  • Increased number of Avichea spawned at Call Points from 1 to 2-4 and improved spawn position.

  • Increased the number of Cryptilex spawned at Call Points from 1 to 2-4.

  • Expanded number of available call points in the Magna, Infested Seraglio, Undulatum, and Albrechts Prospect areas.

  • Added height arrow indicators to Conservation markers.

    • This reduces the number of call points that end up in caves. For the ones that do spawn in caves, the height arrow indicator should relieve that confusion.
  • Added debuffs to Deimos animals when they’re Wounded by Infested and reduced max Health on wild Predasites and Vulpaphylas so you’re not waiting around for Infested to wound the animals.

  • Added Vome/Fass cycle information to Deimos Conservation creatures in the Codex!

  • Fixed losing all control functions for a short period of time after throwing a Fishing Spear – most commonly experienced in Cambion Drift.

  • Fixed cases of issues with Avichea circling movement used when found ambiently and when they arrived at Call Points that would cause them to float way up into the sky.

  • Fixed Cryptilexes missing their Conservation drone pickup animation, which created an animation pop after capturing.

  • Fixed Conservation start points not regenerating on Deimos which would prevent certain encounters from spawning.

  • Fixed some Conservation call points spawning under the Endocrine.

  • Fixed ambient spawns only spawning common fish and ignoring bait (fishing with the Spear out still worked as intended).

  • Fixed Fishing after landscape time change not altering obtainable fish.

GENERAL DEIMOS CHANGES:

  • *Necramechs (Bonewidow and Voidrig) now have a built-in vacuum!

  • Necralisk Fast Travel UI now displays the respective Token for each Entrati member.

  • Entrati Tokens you don’t have the required resources for will now appear greyed out in each Entrati member’s Token acquisition menu. Saving you from having to hover and view each Token individually to see if you have the resources needed.
  • Added “Mother Tokens” next to the Token icon itself in Mother’s ‘Reward Details’ screen.

  • Added “Requirements Met” category to the Necralisk vendors. Selecting this category will sort wares based on if you have the necessities to purchase it.

  • Added “Expiry” and “Tokens” filters to the Necralisk vendors.

    • “Expiry” sorts Tokens by remaining time until they expire. Tokens expiring sooner will be sorted at the top of the list.
    • “Tokens” sorts Tokens by the amount in one purchase. In other words, the higher the number of Tokens in a single purchase the higher it will appear in the list.
  • Added more idle Otak lines in the Necralisk when interacting with him.

  • Added another race node to the Cambion Drift Abyssal Skim race to lead the player better.

  • Increased the Deimos Juggernaut variants Affinity gain to 500.

    • This was done to be more consistent with the Deimos Saxum variants.
  • Made slight updates to Son’s skin textures and fixed neck seam issues.

  • Made slight revisions to Daughter’s textures to better match her head to her body.

  • Enemies in the Cambion Drift will now have a blue energy FX applied to their weapons when Vome is alive and wyrming around.

  • Added Deimos Leapers and Deimos Conservation animals to the Codex.

  • Made improvements to the enemy pathing in tight underground areas in the Cambion Drift.

  • Changed the number of Obelisks that appear in the Cambion Drift from 6 to 5.

    • With the introduction of the newest Bounties, we reviewed Obelisk spawn sites and saw that they were occupying vacant sites that we felt would be better used for new Bounty objectives! These sites were also difficult for enemies to maneuver and access, and they would often get stuck in the Obelisk shards.

NEW INFESTED WEAPONRY:

Your Arsenal is about to get a whole lot more sticky with a slew of new Infested weapons!

CATABOLYST

GLAIVES REVISITED:

Many of these changes focus on enhancing the unique gameplay options that a Glaive can offer. We’ll start simple with throwing mechanics, and work our way up:

Heavy Attack (aka Glaive detonation) will now do more damage, more consistently! Damage numbers have been increased, and the area-of-effect falloff has been removed, meaning max damage no matter what part of the explosion hits an enemy. This should help encourage use of Glaives’ unique detonation functionality; another option to compliment swinging and throwing the weapon, allowing for massive bursts of damage when needed.

“Hold throw” mechanics now apply in Equipped Melee mode! When we added the ability to wield a Glaive alongside any one-handed secondary, we introduced a new system for throwing Glaives that was quicker and more intuitive. This modern system for both ground and air throwing has been applied to pure melee mode, making Glaives consistent no matter how they are used.

WetViciousIrishdraughthorse-mobile.mp4

In “Glaive + Gun” mode, players must use the melee key to detonate the Glaive while in flight. With only the Glaive in hand, the alt fire button is no longer reserved for your secondary weapon, which allows for added flexibility – press alt fire for a Heavy Attack detonation, or tap melee for a simple recall

Glaive throws can now be performed while sliding! Tap to perform a regular spin attack, or hold to throw. An added level of flexibility to the Glaive playstyle.

HalfClearGrayfox-mobile.mp4

Throw melee inputs can be “queued up”, one after the other! Also known as “buffering”, this means if you are holding a melee input as the Glaive returns to your hand, you will start charging another throw as soon as possible. With this change, a smooth gameflow emerges: throw a Glaive, hold melee as it returns, catch, release, repeat.

CleanAdolescentIsabellinewheatear-mobile.mp4

Glaives can now be thrown multiple times in a single jump! Limitations to this type of throw have been removed to allow more chained throws.

Read more:  To Warframe players: limbo is not bad, just polarizing.

With all of these improvements, Glaive throwing and detonating should become a more prominent and viable way to use these weapons. But we’re only getting started!

Another feature that makes Glaives stand out from other melee weapons, is their ability to be wielded alongside a one-handed secondary. This “Glaive + Gun” mode is also getting a couple upgrades:

Melee stance combos are now available in Glaive + Gun mode! Using a weapon combo will no longer restrict your melee options and movement, making Glaives even more deadly.

AgreeableBackFairybluebird-mobile.mp4

Glaive + Gun mode now utilizes melee auto blocking when not aiming or firing! This feature introduced in recent melee system updates will now also apply to the weapon combo mode, offering the benefits of actively equipped melee while still keeping your secondary at the ready.

With all these changes combined, we hope Glaive gameplay will feel more fluid, fun and unique. To encourage exploration of these new mechanics, we are also making changes to Glaive Modding options, improving old Mods and introducing new choices for players to try!

Glaive Mod Power Throw has been given respective buffs:

  • Increased Punch Through from 0.6 to 2m.

    • +2m Punch Through. On Consecutive Throw: +100% Throw Damage (up to maximum 3 stacks)
  • Added 60% projectile speed.

This Mod will now be great for players who embrace the “catch and release” playstyle introduced by the changes to melee input queueing.

We also have two new Mods to help modify your playstyle even further…

Volatile Rebound: 100% Chance to explode on Bounce (Disables Punch Through).

NervousSimilarIvorygull-mobile.mp4

Volatile Quick Return: -4 Bounce. +100% Blast Radius. 100% chance to explode on Bounce (disables Punch Through).

439375775_GIF6.mp4.3b52ce56a45217b4da6018802c28f2ed.mp4

Unlike a Heavy Attack, the explosions from these Mods do NOT consume your combo counter. Equip Volatile Rebound to inflict as much chaos as possible from a single throw, or Volatile Quick Return for rapid targeted strikes.

*Find the Volatile Rebound and Volatile Quick Return Mods from Cambion Drift Deimos enemies!

Below are some specific changes per weapon from the above changes:

Cerata

  • Added guaranteed Toxin proc on Heavy Attack Detonation.

  • Increased Critical Damage from 2.2 to 2.3x of throw.

  • Reduced AoE fall off from 50% to 30%.

XAKU ROUND 2 CHANGES & FIXES:

We’ve been keeping tabs on the usual feedback channels to read and review your takes on Xaku in their updated form. We have been pleased to see that generally these changes have been enjoyed thus far, and that we’ve taken a step in the right direction. But as many have expressed, and to which we have found ourselves agreeing, our work is not done yet on this Community Warframe!

So here we are with a second round of changes based on the most standout and widely discussed points we saw strewn across the feedback hubs. Whether it's iterating on Round 1 or offering new insight on Xaku’s abilities, we thank you for sharing!

General Changes:

  • Xaku's "The Lost" ability description will now include descriptions of "Accuse", "Deny", and "Gaze" within it.

Xata’s Whisper (Void Status Effect):

  • Void damage’s Status Effect will now redirect projectiles to the body part it proc’d on.

    • How it will work: If you shoot at an enemy’s head with Xata’s Whisper enabled and proc, the bubble will redirect all projectiles to the head. If you shoot at the feet, it’ll be redirected to the feet, etc.! It is however possible that even if you proc on the head but then shoot at the lower part of the bubble it might hit the body on the way up to being redirected to the head.
    • This is a game wide change to Void Status Effect! Now that we have a Warframe that can harness Void damage at the click of a button, it has brought much focus to and discussion around its Status Effect. For those of you who are unfamiliar, in its current state it creates a bullet attractor bubble that directs all projectiles to the center of the enemy’s torso regardless of where it procs. Since Xata’s Whisper applies Void damage to all of their weapons, it was increasingly noticeable to Xaku players that the bubble’s current redirecting position prevents any attempt at enemy headshots until its duration expires. This is one of the main reasons for this change. Headshot disruption ultimately limits your damage output by removing the opportunity for headshot multipliers while it is active. Now, you will be able to use your headshotting skills to greater benefit, while also having generally more options to focus projectiles where desired. Note that regardless of where the Status Effect occurs, it will continue to prevent enemies from being able to shoot at you without having their projectiles redirected back to the center of the bubble.

Grasp of Lohk:

  • Re-casting will now steal weapons up to the max number of affected targets.

    • How it will work: You will be able to re-cast up to the max number of targets that you can steal from. In other words, you can add to the current batch of weapons. For example, if your max target is set to 6, and you have 3 weapons active, Grasp of Lohk can be re-cast to “top up” to the remaining 3 weapon allowance. Newly grabbed weapons from re-casts will have independent durations from the previous batch – similar to Protea’s Blaze Artillery.
    • We made re-casting available in Round 1 and set it up to replace the entire current active batch of weapons. Our original reasoning was that this allowed for a ‘fresh’ cast to be made if an undesirable pull occurred. But what makes far more sense is to follow the precedent set by Nekros’ Shadows of the Dead. So now you can maintain your current floating auto-cannon sidekicks and re-cast to refill or top up to the max on command. This will give far more control in maintaining the max number of active weapons you can have at once.
