    PS4 Beasts of the Sanctuary: Update 22.18.8 has been sent to cert!

    [​IMG]

    PS4 Tenno, are you ready for the Sanctuary? Cephalon Simaris awaits your arrival in his domain. This build includes everything from Hotfix 22.17.2 up to 22.18.8 along with some handpicked goods.

    Once we’ve passed cert, we will be updating this thread with the official release date!

    While you wait, take a gander at what this update has to offer:


    NEW WARFRAME: KHORA

    Tenno and beast, red in whip and claw. Khora and her Kavat companion, Venari, embody lethal versatility. Two bodies, one will.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    *The ability descriptions below reflect the changes that were introduced to Khora in the PC 22.18.8 Hotfix that will also be included in the Beasts of the Sanctuary Update on console.

    PASSIVE: The ferocious kavat, Venari, fights by Khora's side and provides her with a speed boost while active. If killed, Venari will reappear after a short time.

    WHIPCLAW: Send enemies reeling with a deafening whipcrack.

    ENSNARE: Bind a hapless target in living metal, entangling others who stray too close. Whipclaw will refresh the trap allowing it to capture more enemies.

    VENARI: Command Venari to focus on a target. Hold to cycle between Attack, Protect, and Heal postures. If Venari is killed, use this ability to revive her instantly.

    STRANGLEDOME: Weave a dome of living chain that ensnares and strangles any enemy within, and any foolish enough to approach. Foes outside the trap will try to hasten their comrade's deaths by shooting them. Crack Whipclaw on the dome to further damage any trapped enemies.


    NEW REINFORCEMENTS

    KHORA DELPHI HELM
    A uniquely styled Alternate Helmet for Khora.

    KERATA SYANDANA
    Flowing lines meet sharpened spikes in Khora’s signature Syandana.

    HYSTRIX
    Launch a flurry of metallic quills with Khora’s signature sidearm. Use alternate fire to change its elemental damage type on the fly.

    DUAL KERES
    Tear through any target with these vicious, claw-like blades. The signature swords of Khora.

    VELDT
    Precise calibration, rapid trigger-pull and a steady hand all combine to bring down the hardiest prey on two legs or four.

    NEW ZAW PARTS
    Sepfahn: A balanced Zaw Strike for Nikana and Staff weapons. A steady blade for steady hands.
    Rabvee: A heavy Zaw Strike for Machete and Hammer weapons. Measure twice, strike once... heavily.
    Dokrahm: A light Zaw Strike for Scythe or Heavy Blade weapons. Lightweight, for flash and bite.
    Shtung: A two-handed Zaw Grip for measured strikes and greater impact.
    Korb: A one-handed Zaw Grip for measured strikes and greater impact.

    OPERATION: PLAGUE STAR RETURNS!



    [​IMG]

    Operation: Plague Star is returning for a second time! Get your best boil popping loadout and head out into the Plains of the Eidolon to go face to face with the Hemocyte.

    Plague Star will begin the day after Beasts of the Sanctuary: Update 22.1.8.8 goes live, and will be active for 12 days.

    If you participated in the last occurence of Plague Star, your Operational Supply Standing will still be intact. What exactly does this mean? Any Standing you had left over will be available to use at Nakak in Cetus’ Operational Supply when the Operation goes live.

    You will also be able to use your Hemocyte Cystolith to build Operation trophies for your Dojo! As before, the required Cystolith costs will depend on the size of your Clan.

    We will be posting a detailed thread on what you need to do, what you need to know, and more! If you’d like to get a head start and prepare for the Operation now, head on over to our PC Operation: Plague Star thread.

    Looking forward to the new Onslaught mode, hopefully we can get a group together for collective disappointment of the Elite version occasionally for the atrocious drop rates of the 'returning' Vandal weapon varients.

    Mesas' new augment mod will fit nicely in her Exilus slot and a bunch of new Zaw parts gives me something to spend my standing on, even if just for mastery rank.

    Not too interested in the new frame or the weapons unfortunately. Not really heard too much positive feedback on anything other than the dual swords.

    No doubt will run the Plaguestar event again, although nowhere near as much as last time, as that was pretty fun and you could get yourself some decent rewards.

    I'm wondering if it might be easier if I start this form the beginning again it's been that long long since I've gone near the game that I don't have a clue as to what is going on anymore. Must be well over the 2 year mark now since I last played it.

    Glad to hear you are getting back on your feet @HERMAN_JELMET

    By all means dive back in @IamNumber6 , the more the merrier, but god don't start again. I'm usually (Always?) on in the evening so just join in sometime and run a few missions see what you feel like after you've played it again maybe?

    I'm sure you still have enough good stuff that it won't matter too much. And unlocking the star chart again is harder because of some poor Archwing missions they have now, that I don't think I've played more than once.

    Just ease yourself back in, have a look around the place and maybe ask @Martok or @HaloJ the best way to get going again.

    Glad to hear things are looking 'better' @HERMAN_JELMET as obviously is been pretty ***** for you all recently.
