    Default Warframe - The grind alone

    First off, if you have no clue what Warframe is then you won't understand the following post. It is a 4 player co-op TPS featuring magic space ninjas. You can sign up for it here (If you don't want a 7-day exp booster you can sign up here, it is also on steam)

    How are people doing in the recent The Sword Alone melee update? I think it is pretty interesting so far. Though stances are pain to farm and hydroid has a grind wall, still no Tranquil Cleave. But overall the game is slowly getting updates to its many half-complete features, albeit while adding new ones *cough dark sectors*. I could go on but I got things to farm.

    Oh, feel free to add me in-game. IGN: Jrgsubzero

    Melee still needs a lot of polishing, it feels weird, especially the unintuitive combo system. The animations themself feel weak and there's not much 'flow' in them. I wish they made melee more like in Vindictus, where you have your normal attacks and smashes and depending on how you chain your attacks you'll perform different combos.

    Dark Sectors might be interesting if it was open GvG/PvP, that would make for some legit end-game content because right now, once you get your Ranks and your mods there's not much to do except for farming and selling stuff for Plat.

    Not to mention the Skills need a serious revamp, some frames are almost completely useless at high levels because half of the abilities in the game, especially the damage ones don't scale with enemy level. They need to either make those abilities scale with level or add some utility to them. For example Trinity has a 20+ second invincibility, for the whole team that she can spam non stop if modded properly while Oberon has a shitty heal that is just a waste of slot. There is much imbalance between frames that needs to be adressed as soon as possible. Right now some frames are fun only on paper.

    I'd say Skills/Warframes 2.0 should be the next priority.

    Yeah, the animations seem so clunky.

    It's not really a pvp centered game, it's a grind based game like Phantasy Star or Monster Hunter. And apart from high level survival/defense, you can do just fine in Warframe with any frame provided you have a decent primary (and in some cases even a secondary). Hell Mag is one of the more solid frames in terms of utility and survival with her abilities, and you can start out with her.

    I'm one of those people who doesn't think too much of melee combat in shooters anyway. I just collect the stances. Some people have said that some of them though do add some useful effects to melee attacks.

    Be careful of what you say, tomorrow or today, for the words you now speak, may become the poison your enemies later seek; truth.

    OP: Referral links aren't allowed, period. Also, I agree with Verde's suggestion on what they should do next.
