I put It In It's own thread as to not clog up other popular threads as It Is a long one.

Nova Changes:

Molecular Prime:
- On cast, no longer instantly affects all enemies in a radius, now grows out from Novas casting position with a new visual effect. This is affected by Duration mods.
- Explosive radius of primed enemies has been brought in (6,7,8,10 meters per mod rank). This is closer to other explosive weapons in the game. This is affected by range mods.
- Duration now scales with level but has been brought in line with other power durations (10,15,20,30 seconds per mod rank). This is affected by Duration mods.
- Slow-motion effect on enemies now scale with level (.9,.8,.75,.7 percent of normal speed) This is affected by Strength mods, but will have a cap on how slow you can make your enemies overall
- Primed explosions are now offset slightly for performance reasons (creating tons of ragdolls in same frame can cause visible hitches).

Trinity Changes:

On cast, Blessing restores all shields and health. Damage reduction for the duration of the skill is now based on the greatest percentage of health healed (ie:if you have a squad with members whose health you healed 30%, 40% and 90%, all party members will receive Damage reduction at the greatest percent, 90% in this case). This should make the use of Blessing more reactive, greatly benefiting players that pay attention and monitor party health to maximize its effectiveness.
- Reduced the time it takes for Trinity's Blessing animation to play.
- Energy Vampire: Will now pulse one last burst from the victim when it dies, releasing any remaining energy; this should make the power useful even when the enemy is killed prematurely.

Banshee Changes:

Is now a radial ranged effect that moves with you. As enemies enter the radius/area, they experience a ‘sonic disturbance’ which they react to. This disturbance deafens the targets and affects their awareness.
- Sound Quake: Players can now control when to deactivate Sound Quake, with the option to toggle it on or off. Sound Quake will consume energy per second while active.

Nyx Changes:

Players can now toggle Absorb on or off.
- Both toggling changes to Nyx and Banshee will give players more freedom instead of being locked in place while the rest of your team runs around. It should also add a nice element of resource management to both Warframes, rather than being stuck in place at the cost of X energy.

Volt Changes:

increased size of Volt’s Shield for better team usage.

Hydroid Changes:

will now be toggleable.

Ash Changes:

- Shuriken now has forced bleed proc.
- Bladestorm now has forced bleed proc.
- Teleport now leaves enemy in finisher state.

Stat Helm Changes:

Helmets with stat modifications have now been removed from the Market/Alert Cycle. Previously crafted or purchased Helmets with stats have been grandfathered in and will not be affected by this change. Additional Stat-to-Stateless Helmet recipes have been added to the Market for individuals wishing to change their current stat modifying helmets to purely cosmetic versions. To coincide with this change, the ability to trade Helmets has been added into the game as well. While the possible options to execute on this change were many, we do not feel comfortable removing the stats outright from gear players have spent hours and hours waiting for via alerts or spent Platinum on. The agency is in the players hand to remove the stats, and we will monitor to decide if further steps need to be taken.

Dark Sector Changes:

Added in Armistices to Dark Sector conflicts. These Peace Time Bonuses will provide a guaranteed 24 hours of peace to the node before it can be attacked again, plus additional time based on the winning teams Solar Rail health and existing deploy time for a maximum of 3 days worth of Peace on the specific node.
- Dark Sector conflict now have a max duration of 12 hours
- Added a Mod drop table for Tenno Specters.

Invasion Changes:

Changes to faction logic in Invasion mission on ‘homeworld’ planets. These homeworld planets are indicated by the planet description in game.
- Defender won't go into "threatened mode" until they reach somewhere between 33% to 66% ownership. At that point they engage in a more aggressive strategy to win a majority land value on their homeworld. Once they are back to that value, they will return to normal until another “threatened mode” between 33% and 66% takes place.

Load Time Improvements:

Game load time improvements have been made across the board for this update.

As well as the fixes, there's also this:


Rescue the Red Veil Hostages!

Specters of Liberty STARTS at 1pm EDT June 10th, and ENDS at 1pm EDT on June 17th.

To pave the way for this overhaul, we’d like to invite everyone to participate in Specters of Liberty to try out the changes, help us work out the kinks and earn some sweet rewards for your efforts. Have fun and let us know what you think.


- The following rescue missions have been upgraded to Rescue 2.0:
>Vallis on Mars
>Numa on Saturn
>Brugia on Eris
>Mab on Uranus
>Nereid on Neptune
>Cinxia on Ceres
These missions -- and their rewards -- are a permanent addition the game.

- Be stealthy and you'll remain unseen by the enemy. Use this to your advantage to take down the Wardens and release the hostage in your own time. Killing all of the Wardens will also earn you an extra point. (See below).

- Lend the hostage your Secondary Weapon and they will help you take on the enemy.


- The 'Specters of Liberty' Operation will utilize the New Rescue 2.0 Missions. Exclusive Operation Rewards will be awarded to Tenno that achieve point levels while the Operation is live. (See Operation Rewards below.)

- The Corpus and Grineer have upgraded their prison security. Both factions have deployed these new facilities to three different nodes. There are Easy, Medium, and Hard facilities. Access these nodes directly on the Star Chart to participate.

- You need to locate the Red Veil Hostage. They are located in a cell within the prison block.

- Hostages are protected by Corpus or Grineer Wardens. Use caution, if alerted to your presence, they will try to initiate the Execution Sequence.

- If the Execution Sequence is started, a timer appears. If you fail to rescue the hostage before the timer runs out they will be killed.


Rescue 2.0 Mission Rewards are a permanent addition to the game. The Red Veil will always reward you for rescuing their Operatives with Specter Blueprints — Blueprints for new, deployable AI Warframes that can be used in missions or in defense of your Clan's Solar Rails.

Your Mission Rewards will be determined by the difficulty level and number of points earned in each Mission you complete.
Up to 3 points can be earned by completing the following:

Rescue a hostage = 1 point

Don't set off the kill switch = 1 point

Kill all Wardens = 1 point

Your Specter Blueprint will be awarded according to your score. More difficult missions offer stronger Specters.(One Blueprint reward per Mission.)

Your points will then multiply according to the difficulty of the node to determine your Operation Reward:
- Easy (Vallis on Mars or Numa on Saturn) -- x1 Point Multiplier
- Medium (Brugia on Eris or Mab on Uranus) -- x2 Point Multiplier
- Hard (Nereid on Neptune or Cinxia on Ceres) – x3 Point Multiplier
- Nightmare (if occurring) -- x4 Point Multiplier

Operation Rewards - distributed at end of operation.
The Red Veil will also recognize you for how you bring home their Operatives. They want you to send a message to the enemy.

Recognition is awarded after you reach the following point levels:
5 points = Operation Badge
100 points = Rakta Syandana

Go forth, Tenno and help the Red Veil bring their people home!


Tenno, you are not alone. The power to create a Specter can now be found in your Arsenal once you obtain a Blueprint! Creating a Tenno Specter can be accomplished by Rescuing hostages in Rescue 2.0! All new Rescue missions will include a hostage whose reward is determined by the difficulty and skill in completion of the mission!
You will be able to create the following tiers of Tenno Specters:
Vapor, Phase, Force, Cosmic

The Blueprints for these Specters can be found when Rescuing targets, see above details for the way points and difficulty works in obtaining your Blueprints!
What can you do with these Tenno Specters?
If you’re in a Clan or Alliance that wants to add greater challenge and defenses to your Solar Rail, you can create Tenno Specters to give to your Clan/Alliance’s Tactician to begin building an army for strategic deployment!
If you’re a player that wants added help in your regular missions, you can bring Tenno Specters in your gear slots to deploy!
Or, maybe you’re both! Have fun in the field with a Tenno Specter at your side!


- Shield Saver: Deflect 1,000 projectiles with your melee weapon.
- The Sword Alone: Complete 10 missions without any primary or secondary weapons equipped.
