Warframe Silva & Aegis Overview & Build

Update 14 introduced the new melee weapon Silva & Aegis which is a first of its kind. The weapon does not put up a good impression for its kind in a combat standard.

There are two ways to obtain it either through the Marketplace using Platinum or through the Tenno Lab.

It currently only has one stance called Eleventh Storm which is only obtainable from the tree heads before the fully formed Lephantis. If your farming the stance and don’t get it after defeating all the 3 heads, you should abort and retry so your key will not consumed.
