The third part of Warframe’s Summer Updates, Silver Grove is now live. The Silver Grove consists of a new questline that will unlock the new Warframe, Titania along with new weapons, a boss revamp, the fusion core revamp and many more.
Trance your enemies with the mystical powers of Lotus’ newest warrior, Titania. Overwhelm your enemies with swarms of butterflies, mesmerize and distract foes with shiny lures and morph into a deadly, flying fairy.
- Enemies fumble their weapons as they are whisked into the air. Nearby allies become immune to Status Effects.
- Extract an offering from an enemy in the form of a random Ability Buff. Survivor’s attacks are weakened.
- Create a swarm of razorflies that transform an enemy into an irresistible floating beacon, attracting witless comrades and finally exploding.
- Shrink down and take flight, while razorflies attack nearby enemies.

Fusion Simplified: Part 1 is here!
If you’re asking yourself ‘Where are my Fusion Cores and what is Endo?”, please read this section carefully! This section explains the conversion from a Fusion Core / Duplicate Mod fusion system to the Endo Fusion system.
Fusion in Warframe is one of the main systems that encourages investment in your Mod collection and Upgrading your gear. With calculated clicking and collecting, you can take your unranked Mods to top tier performers.
With the change to an Endo system we’ve removed the hidden complexity of Fusion. This Endo Fusion system maintains many aspects of the hold.
What is Endo? Endo is Fusion energy incarnate. It is the raw resource that powers the process of Upgrading Mods. In essence, Endo serves as the simplifier in all things Fusion. All duplicate Mods can now be simply converted into Endo. Endo will now drop from enemies and missions where Fusion Cores used to be.
Fusing with Endo makes the Mod Rank increases clear, as the system now only increases in whole Ranks. Partial upgrading with unclear requirements towards your next rank will no longer exist, and neither will wasted Fusion energy. The UI will tell you exactly how much Endo is needed for the next Rank, which gives you a clear goal to work toward.
Any partial Mod upgrades before this Update will be refunded with equivalent Endo and Credits.
So how does the conversion actually work? The base conversion is:
– 5 Endo = 1 Unranked Common Core.
– Fusion Credit Costs are now averaged out since Endo is a static Resource and not skewed by Rarity or Polarity in the same way Mods and Fusion Cores were.
– No more wasted Fusion Energy exists. Often times you’d Fuse a Mod with a Core and would lose some tail end fusion energy. Static Endo amounts mean this is no longer possible.
– All Mods can now be Dissolved into Endo.
– Fusion Core packs in the Market have been replaced with completely repriced Platinum Endo bundles.
Part 2 is coming soon and will include:
Treasures: discoverable ancient valuables that can be constructed and converted into high Endo quantities.
Trading of Endo (in the form of Treasures).
The following Augment are available today from the appropriate Syndicate Offerings:
Nyx: Absorb: Assimilate – Nyx can move at 50% speed while using Absorb, but the area is reduced by half.
Nezha: Warding Halo: Safeguard – Can now be cast on allies with 50% effectiveness.
Atlas: Landslide: Path of Statues – Leave a trail for 12s that petrifies enemies for 6s.
- Added Rarity colour grading to the Relic Reward selection screen in Fissure missions.
- Soft launch of colourblind door symbols! These new symbols should help you determine if a door is locked or unlocked, as they no longer rely on the sole use of colour.
- Added a warning message when the last member of an Alliance’s creator Clan tries to dissolve the Clan.
- Added indicators in the Arsenal of how many Forma are installed in gear, and whether or not gear has been fully Mastered!
- Added a waypoint marker for Cephalon Fragments.
- Added more Relic Rewards into Rotation A in replacement of some Credit Bundles and Mods.
Lunaro and Conclave Additions & Changes:
Lunaro has been out in the wild for a couple of weeks now, and in this time we’ve been play testing extensively – internally and externally – and have been listening to your feedback. In an effort to address your concerns and increase the overall playability of the mode we’ve implemented a number of new gameplay features, arenas, customizations, and back end systems. Read on below for further details:
New Weapon Skins
New Conclave weapon skins for the following weapons can now be purchased for standing from Tehsin once you’ve acquired the Typhoon rank:
Steel Meridian Themed Map: The valorous troops of the Steel Meridian were greatly pleased by the skill and honor found within Lunaro matches and have constructed a variant of the Arena for friendly Tenno to enjoy. Find the new map in rotation today.
New Warm-Up System
Haven’t played any Lunaro since launch? Feeling a bit rusty? Well worry no more! The introduction of the new Lunaro Warm-Up system will take players currently waiting in a not full lobby and load them all into a practice session. These sessions will see all active players equipped with their own Lunaro so as to allow everyone the chance to practise basic game mechanics while waiting for additional loadings to join. Once a game is full and ready to begin the match will naturally progress to the proper Lunaro mode with goals, assists, and saves from the previous Warm-Up being wiped clear.
New Gameplay Mechanics
Ball Magnet Guard: Many of the loudest complaints about Lunaro were directed to the frequency of possession changes that could occur when a scrum was formed. To help alleviate this we’ve introduced the Ball Magnet Guard mechanic. This mechanic will allow the player with the ball to absorb a couple of hits, both melee and check attacks, before they lose possession. Initiating a Ball Magnet Guard is as simple as holding down the Ball Magnet button after the Lunaro has been picked up.
Passing is now a dedicated button. Defaulted to R, this dedicated pass button should make coordination and team play more viable, especially in high-latency environments.
Bringing up the Scoreboard can now be done with the TAB button bringing Warframe PvP in with more traditional PvP games.*
Please note: This change is also reflected in PvE game modes. Pressing TAB will bring up the Progress & Rewards screen without locking the player in place.
New PvP Matchmaking Rules
Much of the feedback we’ve received from our seasoned PvP players and newcomers alike was our inscrutable matchmaking rules. We’ve attempted to stream lines and have separated the rules used to match players in PvE from those used for PvP. Specifics on these PvP specific matchmaking rules are as follows:
When attempting to join a friend you will be placed on their team if there is available space.
If you create a squad and then create/join a PvP lobby you will all be placed on the same team. Subsequent joiners will fill the opposing team slots.
Inviting a Friend who is currently in a squad will attempt to being in the full squad into your current game/lobby.
Attempting to join a PvP match without enough space for you and your squad will now present an error message indicating that there isn’t space to accommodate everyone.
A similar error message to the above will be displayed when a full Squad of 4 players attempts to join a Lunaro match.
Invite and Friends Only Lobbies now have a “Switch Team” option.
New Penalty/Reward System
Another common gripe that has sometimes been affecting our competitive PvP modes was one that affects almost all games of this nature; rage quitters. While any system we introduce won’t be able to completely solve this issue we’ve enacted a consequence system that will hopefully curb some of the more numerous instances:
- We now track players who quit out of matches including those using the Alt-F4 method.
- The Penalty system has 2 stages; a warning and a penalty applied state:
- The warning stage will appear on the Landing Craft after the game detects that you’ve quit out of a match prematurely.
- The Penalty Applied state will kick in after a certain % of your last games are determined to have been prematurely left. This state results in an XP Penalty of 75%.
- Player’s can climb back out of the Penalty Applied state by completing a corresponding amount of full matches.
- While also negatively affecting rage quitters, we want to encourage those who continue to play while short on players and those who play multiple matches in a row.
- Completing a match you were short on will result in a +20% boost to XP and Standing.
- Completing subsequent matches will results in 10% more XP and Standing after the first match.
New Custom Lunaro Bindings
With the launch of Lunaro on Consoles we introduced full customization options for Lunaro controls. With this update we will be introducing the same functionality for PC keyboard and mouse users.
Head over to the Options screen to configure your Lunaro bindings as you see fit!
Soft Launch: Player Hosted Servers
Another major complaint directed toward our Conclave game modes has been the potential for laggy experiences due to the game running on our peer to peer system. With this update we will be rolling out the first stages of a potential solution to this issue: volunteer player hosted servers – we’ve got the tools in place to allow you to host Lunaro.
At this stage volunteer servers are limited to running Lunaro only, and require a separate dedicated computer to host.
The initial roll-out will be conducted via an invite-only process due to the need to gauge scalability and success. We will be using this soft launch to gather valuable feedback and stats and once we determine that the system is ready to provide the best experience we will be moving forward with a full scale public release.
