The game play has been pretty fun, but being forced to choose a frame you don't really want to play in order to get anywhere is really stupid.  I'd like to try the Mesa warframe, but it looks like I have several days of playtime left to go before I can even begin farming for the components I need.  I guess this is there way of forcing you to spend money?

Nobody is forcing you to spend money but yes their F2P model is pay for some cosmetics and to grind less.

I'm 50-50 on the frames I own (all except Excal Prime). I don't mind dropping money to have fun but I also like a challenge and do the quests for the frames or go hunting.

It can be FTP or PTP, your choice. Not sure I'd go Mesa first, Rhino is great fun for starting out.

Rhino is easy to get too as well, just git the Venus boss over and over till it spits out the components. Mesa is a PITA, you would be better off buying it.

EWSpider. Add me "Talendro" in game and I'll help you get to Rhino. I'm on Aussie time though

BTW fuck PoE. It's just not fun right now - I'd rather do old school missions because I don't want to invest in the MMO aspect of PoE. I'm too old for that shit

It's not even an MMO. It's just a crazy amount of additional grinding on top of the already copious amounts of grinding. It's unfortunate Focus 2.0 is gated behind PoE. Otherwise I could ignore PoE except to do some (solo) bounty missions just for fun. As I mentioned earlier PoE is not a good place to do the normal grind stuff like XP, Endo, Syndicate standing, etc.

Request sent.  Rhino doesn't really appeal to me, but I just today figured out why my Mastery rank wasn't going up (I was playing with max level frame and gear lol).  So I guess if nothing else I could level it to 30 just for the Mastery XP.

Yes, it's always good to be working on your MR as a "background task", at least until you get to like MR 12 which will allow you to use the Syndicate Primary weapons:

I'm a little annoyed with how few weapon inventory slots you get.  I've bought 2 additional slots already with the free plat.  Should I just sell sub-optimal weapons after leveling them to 30 for the MXP?

In general yes, if you don't want to buy more slots.

However I think you might be able to gift slots now. Are you on PC and if so what's your in-game name?

You get some slots with the anniversary weapons... but I'm not sure if they are just for those weapons or remain if you delete them. Slots are a good buy and if you wait until the daily reward is a 50 or 75% off on platinum you can have enough for the things (mostly slots) that add to quality of life.

The MR system encourages you to play with every weapon and frame, and it can be oddly satisfying deleting a weapon you didn't like too much when it reaches 30.

If you want access to the clan frames and weapons happy to invite you to the old f13 clan, though they tend to require resources from later in the game to make I think.

I'll definitely buy some plat if I get a 75% reward, but yeah I'm not sure some weapons are really worth keeping once they hit 30 and they aren't visually appealing or as powerful as something you already have.  Please do invite me when you get a chance, would love to check out the Dojo.  Made it to Pluto so far so I don't think I'm too far off from being able to get most materials.

Added you.

I can't bear to throw away completed weapons (or frames) Nuts I know but I take a perverse enjoyment from making them work.

The MK1's are the only ones I've sold off, I think.

You never know when DE will buff the stats, release a weapon-specific mod or allow you to dual wield something that's currently not so good.

In as Rendakor; sent friend requests to Trippy and EWSpider.

It seems I picked Mag as my first Frame way back in the day, so I have that and the Frost Prime free one.

I deleted weapons that I didn't actively like without a stab of conscience. They are just mastery fodder to me. A great place for level them up is Heluene on Saturn, that hits the sweet spot for XP earned and difficulty of the Mobs. Especially if you are solo as it's a popular place for grinding so you will fall into a team no problem/

I think the anniversary weapons come with their own slots. I think I have 20 slots or so.

I don't toss frames unless I manage to get the prime version of them, at which point I toss the standard version. Slots are very reasonably priced anyway.

BTW for the newcomers or those that need some extra credits you should link your account to your Twitch account and then keep open as many Warframe streams as your bandwidth and system can handle (tip: view them at 160 res). The Latron blueprint is the 2nd most common drop after the Starburst (drops about half as often as the Starburst) and you can sell your extra copies for some credits:

Actively enjoyed deleting weapons I did not like the gameplay of when they reach 30. It's amazing how easy it is for video games to trigger that feeling of achievement.

Both. I'm stuck on the mobile defence where nullifiers pop my bubbles. I didn't have a rapid fire weapon... plus I had void Vor come to the party twice.

Apparently it might only track the last Warframe stream you loaded/refreshed, so opening multiple streams might not give you more gifts.

Do I also have to be logged into the game, or just my twitch account?

You don't need Warframe running to get the Twitch viewing gifts.
