Gift of the Lotus up. You have 24 hours for a potato blueprint.

Also, double credit weekend.

What do you use credits for besides mod fusing?  Everything in the market looks like it requires platinum to buy.

Did a level 11-13 alert this morning solo (nuclear core destruction mission vs infestation).  Man that was hard but a lot of fun even though I blasted through all of my revives.  Got a lot of good mods.

Been using mine for mod fusing...but you use credits to by the blueprints on the market. After this weekend, I am going to build a bunch of "use once / level to 30" guns and increase my mastery levels some since all my frames are now 30 and I have no interest in the other frames. That is my next credit sink I suspect.

Credits are also used as taxes for trading things at dojos, even if you're doing it with people on your friends list or in your clan/alliance.

Certain things can cost upwards of a million+ credits in tax, easily.

There are a few things that sell for credits in the marketplace, but it's mostly entry level stuff.

Otherwise, it's mostly used for mod fusing, kubrow maintenance (dogs are expensive, yo), and also for buying stuff from the void trader. As pointed out, taxes on dojo trading can be considerable as well.

Fusing is probably the biggest credit sink, but even a few million credits can disappear shockingly quickly if you don't watch expenditures.

It'll also cost you credits to obtain higher levels with the various factions.  Top level costs 500k; one previous costs 250k.

Fusing cores into mods is my largest money sink and what drives my greed for creds creds creds.  The majority of items in game can be bought with platinum - in other words - real world cash.  Cores and credits, generally speaking, are the exception.  Yes you can convert plat to creds via the in-game market but WTF...look at the conversion rate.  You can also brave the Trade channel and try to buy higher end cores (R5 cores) for plat, but again, it doesn't seem to be a good return on your plat considering you'll gain the cores you need via missions relatively easily.  

When you start trying to max out mods with a higher number of ranks (Serration, Heavy Caliber, Over Extended etc.) or, even more fun, Primed mods (I'm looking at you Primed Continuity) cores and creds are always the limiting factors.  After a certian point the "meta" starts revolving around modding your weapons and frames as effectively as possible.  Rare mods, maxxing out mods where ever possible, forma'ing slots to squeeze aforementioned mods into a certian weapon or frame, and so on.

TL;DR - credits are comparatively hard to acquire in large amounts and are very much needed for game progression.  And higher level Syndicate rank ups do get really expensive.  

Double credit weekend + credit booster = good times

YIL that Absorb is the highest priority target. Was playing an extraction to unlock the node and saw a Nyx player doing that.

Yeah, if I see a Nyx I'll unload my gorgon into her at point blank.

On the credits front, if you get into making as many weapons and frames as possible to gain ranks, you'll burn through credits at a good clip.  Be glad it feels like you have too many.  One day you'll lament that feeling.

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!

I'm really starting to dig this game even though I've only gotten 2 hours of game time a couple nights a week.

Haven't branched out outside of excalibar and the newbie weapons, haven't found much reason to yet.  Finished the 2nd quest line and almost unlocked all of earth and half of mercury.  I'm getting a lot of pressure point mods, and I'm getting pretty happy with my fire bo staff, but I haven't found many damange mods for my rifle yet.  I rarely use my pistol weapon, haven't really seen much use for it outside of excavation missions where you are forced to while carrying something.

Got a sword blueprint from the 2nd quest line (Once awakened I believe, where infested are introduced) but I need to find out where to get some of the other resources from (I think I need jupiter if I remember the resources correctly, judging from the warframe wiki).

Double credit weekend rocks. Made just under 1.5m doing nothing more than chasing alerts and dark sectors when there were no alerts. Even managed to relevel Vauban after I forma'd a D slot on him.

You'll want to rank up your secondary as well since that goes towards your overall mastery rank points. Basically you'll want to rank up everything that has a rank to 30 even if they are crappy or not fun to use. Some things you might want to sell after that point but you should try and get them to 30 before selling.

If you're on PC, we can help with some of the annoying first resource hurdles.  Control modules, plastids, rubredo, etc were all a pain in the ass at some point. Neural sensors, neurodes, morphics, and orokin cells are a perennial problem.

Yep, the heat sword.  Since my bo staff is only rank 16 I have a good while until I'm ready to upgrade.

Chat in this game is problematic overall. It's almost as though they are trying to push voice comms.  why so serious?

But yeah... chat is horrible. On PS4, if I am in a game I have to:
1. escape into the menus
2. click L2 to open the chat window
3. click SQUARE to start a message
4. type out message on my bluetooth keyboard because trying to thumb stick type is pants-on-head stupid and the game would be over by the time I got a message to the window
5. escape out of chat
6. escape out of the menus

It is pretty pointless and the most user unfriendly chat I have ever seen in such a fast moving game.

It'd make more sense if the ingame voice com actually, like, you know, worked and stuff.

Although, it's a bit of a blessing to be ignorant of what might be going on in region chat on weekends and during the summer. Granted, I miss clan chat events all the time, but I can live with the tradeoff.

Voice works pretty well on PS4 though. But no one uses it except for people under 20 or people that are obnoxious.

If I'm on PSN I don't use in-game voice for anything.  Haven't tried Warframe but I don't see any reason to use a non-PSN voice system.

Welcome aboard! Just ask in clan chat for the TS info.

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something.

Caveat you'd have to have the time to get to your gaming setup and actually play at random times - but I use the Warframe Alert app (for Android) and it's been pretty handy for catching alerts that rewad harder to acquire items. 

I don't use it as much anymore since I work more of an 8-5 type schedule, but when I was working off hours it was how was able to acquire all the Vauban parts without too much hair pulling.

Alright, so curiosity got the best of me and I loaded this up on steam to see how different it is. After getting over the motion sickness from my mouse being way way too sensitive, I can say I really missed the k&m. The game plays much slower when you are not fighting the controller. No idea how much I will play on the PC, but if anyone sees me around and can shoot me an invite, same name as here. Wouldn't mind seeing what a dojo actually looks like. :/

What's your in-game name?  I'll keep an eye out.  There's a group of F13'ers that mainly play West Coast evening times.
