Devstream #124 Summary

Thank you to our special guest writer, CowsyTheSecond, for writing up this summary of Devstream #124.

  • Nightwave: 60% of challenges to max out Nightwave. After that, you’ll enter a “prestige” mode wherein you will earn additional wolf creds. Wolf as well as fugitive spawn rates are going to be increasing.
  • Ayatan filling challenge will be changing as they recognize that finding 5 Ayatan sculptures shouldn’t be comparable to killing 500 enemies.
  • Nyx Deluxe skin coming in the next mainline update.
  • New “Lotus Theme” for the UI, launching on mothers day, purple-ish, looks good.
  • Warframe Abilities UI rework – when viewing abilities you’ll get these little snippets showcasing the abilities and they look great. “Tips” for warframe abilities on there as well. Some of them crowdsources.
  • Tennocon 2019 packs will give you a new emote that spawns a 2019 Tennocon glyph (which works in relays) as well as Tennocon armor pieces which look sleek, sorta blade-esque.
  • Hildryn’s alt-helmet has boxer-braids and they look awesome.
  • Plains Remastered – They are working on redoing/updating PoE which include but isn’t limited to:
    • New rewards, new reasons to go there
    • Bounties in-stage from small tents meaning you won’t have to go back to Cetus every time, so that’s nice QoL.
    • Foliage Log grinding for K-Drives
    • Free roam lighting fix for Skydome (also applies to fortuna)
    • (Grineer?) Spiderdude on PoE Codename: Thumper, looking like a mini-boss hmm…
  • Wisp is violently thicc…
  • Two-tone energy (2 energy colours for maximum fashion frame – Looks like it’s going to be a while though.
  • New faction? Amalgams “Specialist Faction” a group of enemies that react in various ways to taking damage.
  • (twerking moa confirmed)
  • New Mods: “Amalgam Mods” to “give a tactical flare to mods”. Example:
    • Serrated Rush +155% damage, +15% sprint speed
    • Tactical Diffusion +110 multishot, +10% dodge
    • These won’t stack with base mods but is coming very soon.
  • Quick melee launching next week along with Hildryn!
  • New Kavat: Health drain/vampire kavat.
  • A waypoint system fix is in the works but it’s hella complicated so it might be a while.
  • 3 new curly hairs for operators.
  • And here are some things that have been considered but hasn’t yet left the drawing board:
    • No sprint key – always sprint
    • No jog – sneak to move slow, crouch to be more “fast sneaky jog”, walk only for social (with a fast option)
    • Wall running fix to make it more reactive to what the player is doing as opposed to sticking you into a fixed animation
    • Archwing turning to a more “Battlefield/Battlefront” style of flying.
