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
  • 25 – Devar -> Esher Devar
  • 50 – Veridos -> Marquise Veridos
  • 100 – Crimzian -> Star Crimzian
  • 400 – Sentirum -> Radian Sentirum
  • 400 – Nyth -> Hearth Nyth

 

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.

Ores

  • Coprun -> Coprite Alloy
  • Ferros -> Fersteel Alloy
  • Pyrol -> Pyrotic Alloy
  • Auron -> Auroxium Alloy

In The Evil Within 2, Sebastian Castellanos must once again confront unspeakable horrors within the nightmare born from the infamous STEM. This time, however, Sebastian’s mission is personal: He’s searching for his daughter Lily, who he thought he had lost many years ago, and it’s now a race against time as the world crumbles around him. Sebastian must rescue Lily before everything falls apart and they are both lost in STEM.

The Harbingers will randomly appear and continuously summon their monsters after you, the only way to damage the Harbinger is to defeat their invading force. Defeating a Harbinger can yield new currency items and new unique item parts.

As always there will be a total of 40 new challenges that can be completed throughout the whole league. Completing each interval of 12 will reward a specific reward. After the 19th challenge, every consecutive 3rd challenge after that will reward a hideout totem piece.

Harbinger league will launch simultaneously with the Fall of Oriath expansion on August 4th.

E3 2017 – EA Conference Reveals

The EA Conference at E3 2017 happened earlier today at 12 PM PST. Here are all the games and DLC announced.

Battleborn – Free Trial (F2P)

Battleborn has finally went F2P even though it doesn’t publicly want to announce it by calling it a “free trial”. It’s live now except for Sony Europe & Sony Japan which will become live on June 13th.

Essentially players will have access to play the multiplayer of the game with a rotating number of heroes at first. But Battleborn’s gotta make money somehow, there a paywall or grindwall behind the content of the game. Everything can be unlocked through playing the game including all the heroes and story missions through in-game credits or you can just buy it.

The multiplayer isn’t too appealing because balancing is such an issue when you have 30 characters, each having multiple skills and on top of that an equipment system that has randomized stats and tiers.

Personally, I don’t think Battleborn going F2P at this point will save it from it’s eventual demise even though it’s not half bad but unfortunately it might just end up like Evolve.

There’s just too much multiplayer fps on the market currently. Paladins is in Xbox’s most played games list whilst Battleborn isn’t and Battleborn on steam’s stats don’t bold well at all. The only glimmering of hope seems to be on PS4.
