Warframe: Angels of the Zariman Hotfix 31.5.4 Increases Survivability of Operators

A new chapter coming soon.
A new chapter coming soon. Digital Extremes

Warframe: Angels of the Zariman expansion has implemented a lot of changes across the board. One of those is the improved Focus School System where the developer Digital Extremes wanted to bring all schools to the same level. This was done in the hopes of bringing synergy to warframe and operator gameplay. However, operators need tuning, especially when engaging in some endgame content. So, to solve this problem, operators now have increased survivability, thanks to Hotfix 31.5.4.

For those who are new to Warframe, players can shift between warframe and operator at any time through Transference. The operator is the human driving the warframe, so to speak. That said, developers have implemented adjustments to improve the operator’s survivability. Here’s a rundown:

  • Increased Operator base Health from 250 to 350
  • Increased Operator base Armor from 25 to 75
  • Added 350 base Shields to Operator
    • Shield Gating now applies to Operators, giving you a strategic moment to Transfer back to Warframe, recover in Void Mode, or tough it out
  • Added +200% Armor to Enduring Tides. Changed to be a “stacking” modifier instead of “multiplicative” to match math logic used for other buffs, while not making additional Health/Armor increases scale further than desired
  • Increased Magus Vigor to +600 Health
  • Increased Magus Husk to +250 Armor

Another major change implemented in Hotfix 31.5.4 is that the difficulty of the Void Cascade mission has been lowered. This is to help make the new in-game activity a bit more forgiving for most players. Some of the tweaks include reduced HP for the Thrax units and a lower enemy count overall.

Patch Highlights

  • Reduced the slight Field of View shift when using Void Sling from 0.5 to 0.2 to address reports of base Field of View inducing nausea. Additionally, when Camera Shake is disabled the Field of View shift on Void Sling is removed
  • Fixed Unairu’s Magnetic Flare being able to completely strip Profit-Taker’s shields in one cast
    • Applied the same logic with Magnetic Flare that is used for other bosses (Eidolons and Ropalolyst for example), since completely stripping Shields in a single Magnetic Flare cast removes a large portion of certain gameplay mechanics in these fights
  • Lowered the difficulty of the Void Cascade mission in the Angels of the Zariman quest:
    • Reduced the Thrax units max Overguard
    • Reduced the Thrax units Armor
  • Reduced the number of Eximus spawns in the Mastery Rank 27 test
    • With the Eximus changes in the Angels of the Zariman update, the test was reported to be rather difficult to complete
  • Orokin Drones Eximus units will now only choose between Health Leech and Energy Leech Eximus variants
    • These units do not have attack animations, and therefore made it impossible to telegraph their Eximus powered attacks
