Warframe | Mining Guide

Warframe’s Plains of Eidolon Expansion had added a mining element into the game. In order to start mining, you will need to get a Nosam Cutter either as a standing reward or buying one from Old Man Sumbaat who can be found at the mining symbol on the minimap in Cetus. After obtaining the Nosam Cutter and equipping it onto your gear slot, you are now able to mine materials in the plains.

While in the plains, take out your Nosam Cutter through your gear wheel. When you zoom in with your Cutter, an indication should pop up. The left side indicates how many mineral veins are nearby and the right indicates the distance to the nearest vein. There’s also an audio indicator to signify when you are getting closer to the vein.

When you find a mineral vein, it is either Red or Blue. Red veins can only drop ores while Blue veins can only drop Gems. After finding the mineral vein and still looking through your Nosam Cutter, track the dotted pattern around the mineral vein. Depending on how well you trace the outline will determine how much materials you get out of it, better cutters are more accurate and have a longer range indicator. If you’re lazy and don’t want to trace every outline, you can just do spirals inside the outline to quickly mine the vein losing out on some additional materials. The more the gauge above the progression bar fills up, the more materials you will achieve after the progression bar has been completely filled.

Standing & Gem

  • 25 – Azurite -> Tear Azurite

There are currently 6 gems mine-able that can be traded in for standing at Old Man Sumbaat while the 4 Ores cannot be. All these materials can be used to create a refined version of itself that’s used for majority of Cetus crafting including the Custom Weapons, Zaws. The refined version is unlocked by standing ranking and can be bought at Old Man Sumbaat.

Warframe | Fishing Guide

Plains of Eidolon brought upon Fishing into Warframe. In order to start fishing, you need to get a fishing spear; you can either buy one from the Fisher Hai-Luk merchant or get it from ranking up in standing. Then equip the fishing spear into your gear slots. Currently, there seems to be no advantages in more expensive spear than the beginning ones because all fishes can be obtained via that spear.

After obtaining a fishing spear, you can go to any body of water in Plains of Eidolon and they’ll be a chance for fishes to spawn. Different locations consist of different fishes. Fish will spawn regardless if it’s day or night in the Plains but only certain fishes will come out at night. The better fishes are pretty much located in bodies of water furthest away from Cetus, usually near the main body of water.

Bring out your fishing spear and wait for fishes to spawn. Aim your fishing spear at them and hope to catch them. All fishes have different models and sizes. The bigger they are, the easier they are to catch.

Fishes are categorized into Small,Medium and Large sizes. Each fishes is worth a different amount of standing and gives a different component when skined at the fish merchant. Each fish regardless of type will give Fish Meat, Scales and Oils but in different quantities.
