In "this is a stupid idea" news, they also announced that you can disoolve one of your frames and transfor one of its powers to another frame. Of course being DE it was contradictory and vauge which powers you could do and so on, so I can imagine it will turn into a clusterfuck or they will "forget" to implement it.
Most frames have one of more useless or nearly-useless abilities so this might be a good way of giving some frames more power or utility. I think it'll be interesting. It's possible it might get delayed if they can't figure out how to "convert" some abilities to be usable in other frames or come up with "new" abilities fast enough but it's very unlikely it'll be forgotten (delayed indefinitely). This Tennocon they clearly were showcasing "near-future" things unlike some of the previous ones.

As someone with all the non-prime frames, each with forma in them, no way am I melting them down. That would give me empty frame slots as I also have all the primes/Umbra an I like my collection.I will probably treat this the way I treat the Archwing, Railjack Plains etc. Ignore them and play a different game instead.

Gut instinct is that this might be how they reduce individual databases. Also, increase the grind as people like me would log in to get additional frames. For me, that's a game breaker, there are other games I want to play and the rotations for some of the drops is nuts.

I don't play my non-Prime frames that have Prime frames anymore so I'm fine with melting mine down except for perhaps a few for nostalgia sake (e.g. Mag, my starting frame, and Trinity my most used one in group play in the early days). Some are pretty easy to farm too so that's an option for some. Others of course are a pain in the ass to farm and I may just resort to buying them (again) depending on what abilities they provide. I do like not seeing any frames available for purchase at the bottom of the Equip list, though, so hmm...

Ya, people are boasting about how they have X amount of Frames ready to go in the forge, just need to be completed. I'm guilty as well, in that I have a few frames that I already have the parts for ready and I bought the dojo frames to build. Other than that, I havend done anything to prep for it at all. I'm certainly NOT not sitting through the grind to get the harder to get frames because eff that.

Anyway, this is the mew map

DE has realeased its "Comprehensive Dex update for the ability changing thing. And released an update today which is basically everything put in but nor activated yet.

So far its looking like a buggy mess with people not able to finish missions, Defense objectives missing, and a new mission completion screen which seems to me to be badly laid out.



So ya I wouln't bother logging in till late tomorrow after the first round of hotfixes.

From the power list that can be swapped, this is looking like they are going for totally overpowered rather than in anyway balanced. I had a very bad feeling about this, and it looks like I was completely correct. This is a bad, bad idea. For one thing, it will take about a day before people are yelling at other people about not having the "correct" list of skills for their frames on missions. Anyway, link to dev post here.

Based on the restrictions they gave themselves there weren't many powers they could choose from. I.e. for most frames there was only one choice that it could be. Of the ones where there were multiple choices there are some interesting choices (e.g. Nova with Null Star instead of Anitmatter Drop) but they basically backed themselves into a corner in terms of what they could pick.

There's not much content in the game that requires a "meta" build. I don't do Tridolons (or Eidolons at all for that matter) and I don't do the meta affinity/focus/whatever_resource farms so I can't remember the last time somebody complained about somebody else's setup in a pub. I do see people occasionally drop in missions that I suspect were not happy with the frame lineup, but they don't whine about it before hand. I.e. if you are just playing to have some fun it doesn't matter what people's frame setups are. If you are in tryhard mode it probably will matter what abilities people swap in but that's no different than the situation now with Tridolons and affinity farms, etc.

Edit: updated to address both points

I can't ever remember anyone bitching about builds in a pub.

You don't even need to attach Umbral mods to excel in this game.

I have, but mainly in Eidolons and kill streak meta signups. When Steel path launched I went on with some people in my clan to see how had a Tri-cap was in steep path. Well there was just a barrel of rage from one guy about how I had gathered too much lures as I have spoiled the timing, why wasn't I Void Stricking, bitch bitch bitch. And DARE you tell anyone that there are other places to level other than Hydron. (helene on Saturn is pretty much as good and has better loot)

For the record there isn't much difference between the Teralyst and Gantulysts, but Hydrolysts spawn murderous numbers of level 110+ Vomulysts that WILL blow up your lures and are hard to take out.
