Five Game Challenge Day 11: Is it a Bird? … a Plane?
No! It’s that I finally took a screenshot of flying over the Plains of Eidolon! :D I was there to unlock a weapon Riven — the challenge I had was to destroy three of the flying craft in the area, and then also kill the pilots before they hit the ground. >.<
So far as Rivens go though, that one actually wasn’t too difficult. I had another one I unlocked over the weekend which required me to get 18 kills without breaking contact with a wall. I was allowed to wall-jump it or latch on. Latching of course being the clear winner from an ease point of view. Until you consider that wall-latching has quite a limited duration.
I did it though, but not on the first mission I tried. I first assumed a low level Survival would be the way to go, but the monster density just wasn’t there. But! After jumping to a Survival mission on a later-Planet, problem solved.
In other news though?
Completed my Warframe November Goals
Gain Mastery Rank 13+
Which will mean obtaining new ‘something’ to rank up. I have no primary or secondary weapons that I haven’t already maxed once. I might have a frame or two still, but that won’t be enough.
I’ll leave it open as to what exactly I obtain or level for this purpose, except:
Finish my Helios Prime companion
I have just one more component to get before I can start building it. The Helios Prime Cerebrum. I don’t know if this is currently in vaulted or available relics. If the former, I may end up buying this component on the Warframe Market from another player. We’ll see.
At the start of the weekend, I was actually a bit worried about the Mastery Rank 13 goal. It seemed to be going incredibly slowly, working with just the frames I had.
But then I found there had been some new additions to the market place! Just MK1 (i.e., starter grade) weapons, but they can be purchased with in-game credits alone. I managed to get a secondary weapon and a melee weapon slot from credits to rank up, alongside the frames I was doing.
Then Saturday evening, bing!
And it was one of the easy Mastery Rank tests as well, fortunately. Some of the more difficult types might’ve handed my behind to me at the moment.
If you’re unfamiliar, you get three attempts at a Mastery Rank test. If you fail three tries, you’re locked out from trying again for a while (24 hours, I think).
Off-setting that potential annoyance though, you do have an ingame opportunity to ‘practice’ it though by heading to Cephalon Simaris and entering a simulation… er… of the simulation.
Now, I also mentioned if I blew through all goals in a single weekend — I’d revise upwards accordingly. I haven’t met my Skyrim goal, true, but I am going to set a couple more for Warframe even so.
New Warframe Goals for November!
- Gain Mastery Rank 14+
I considered going more ambitious with this and setting a 15+ minimum. But I’m back in a similar position to where I was when I set the 13+ goal — that is, with very little new gear to earn mastery through. This isn’t to say 15+ isn’t possible, but since I still have my Skyrim goal too — I’m not going to push it.
- Build the Gara Warframe
I’m close to Gara. Very close. I need one more component blueprint — for her Neuroptics. Get that, and I can build her! Gara’s components come from Bounties on the Plains of Eidolon. Just a matter of hitting the right level range. :)
Tempted to add something else. But I’ll leave it there for now. :)
