I've been using Gara so much now.  She's brilliant.  Her level 4 is a really wide reaching protective barrier and I have a ton of mods boosting my abilities so it goes even further and takes a hell of a hammering before it breaks.  It's made Defence missions and others where you are stationary so, so much easier.  Her other abilities are kinda weird but I'm making some use of them.

Also, since she has parts of her armour mirrored she can dazzle enemies and leave them open for a critical melee attack.  I wish I knew exactly what activates this passive ability so I could manipulate it more but it seems to just happen all the time.  I'm not complaining.

 

I'm at Uranus in terms of progress that way but to get to Neptune requires some harsh looking objectives, but it's fine, I'm okay where I'm at for now.  I have plenty of other things to do.  I'm just starting my Dojo.

 

I'm just at Master Rank 7, not a big jump from before but getting to 7 took quite a few attempts.  It was just awkward.  And' I've practised the one the gets me to 8 and its a piece of piss so I just need to get the exp.

Then I can start crafting some Prime gear 😎

It's funny how mastery ranks can be really easy (I did 16 recently and it was a piece of piss) but there were a couple which were buggers.

 

I like Gara for defence. When the wall starts to crack you can use your 1 to shatter it for extra damage before raising another wall.

 

Do you do a vertical boost jump before triggering your 4? You can put a wall in that's really high, stops enemies from dropping in from above.

 

Nidus is a great defence frame. Has no shields and builds stacks based on toxic spores. When you hit enough stacks you can launch your 4, a toxic swamp with maggots which seek out enemies. It's a frame where I rarely fire a single shot or do a single melee as you're using your powers constantly. You're building for energy, duration and stretch.

I've made quite a bit of progress on this lately.

 

I'm on the the final areas.  Sedna and Eris.  I've also done a bit of important story stuff.  I've not being paying much attention to the story but I wish I had because it got kinda good and weird during this part.

 

One of the new things that has turned up is the Kuva Syphon missions.  I've read online what you're meant to do but I can't seem to get it to work.  You're supposed to find and stop some clouds using a scanner but I can never see them in the heat of battle.  Maybe buddies are needed to help but I'm not sure if many Switch players are this far (cross-play, please).

 

I also need to look into upgrading my Operator because I dunno what I'm supposed to do with that.

The story/quest stuff is generally high quality and worth indulging.

 

I can't help with the kuva stuff as not got the experience yet.

 

Your operator has an amp, which is his /her weapon. You level it up to 30, then have to guild it by going around the block again. However to do that you need to gain standing with the Quills on Cetus (available once you complete the War Within). Once you've done the grind (I haven't yet) and guilded you can start to construct more powerful amps of your own. The original amp is shit but once you make your own they're by all accounts powerful and can be used to take down Eidolon.

 

The other upgrading is to choose the focus for your operator (I'm currently on zenurik but they all have different tactical advantages). You need to equip focus lenses to frames and weapons which will accumulate focus points which can then be spent on the focus tree of your choice. These grant passive and active abilities. Best to just focus on one focus class at a time.

 

I wish it was cross play as I'm a bit bored without a mate to play with and some of this stuff needs grinding (Cetus I'm thinking of you). I really need this Cetus stuff maxed for benefits elsewhere e.g. arcanes.

Fortuna Part 1 hits Switch today.  Looking forward to cutting about on a hoverboard.

 

There is an event destroying Razorbacks at the moment, which has been pretty fun.  As well as the Acolytes so I've got a bunch of new mods but I'm not that sure I'd rather swap them out for my current ones.  I'm quite happy with my weapons at the moment.  My radioactive shotgun is a beast and my my rifle with single shot and auto options.  Sorry, I'm terrible with names.

 

I'm also going back to Oberon since I've just got the Prime version.  I think I'm a bit more into it since trying the others.  I've been a little unimpressed with other Frames I've tried.  I think I just stumpled into the ones I like the best first.  Gara is by far my favourite defensive option, but it can be worked into a good attacking role, too.  And I still think Mag is a really good offensive option (I also have a Prime Mag as well).

 

But I still have some story missions to complete.  Had the final Inaros mission on the docket for ages but I can't seem to match with anyone on it and even with my best stuff I can't quite beat him... though I've not took my shotgun to him yet.  And I need to scan a bunch of flowers for the other mission I have going.  I've not proper committed to it yet, I just try to keep an eye out during an Earth mission.

 

Looking foward to Fortuna anyway.  I think that puts the Switch version just one major update behind.  Hopefully full parity isn't far away, and then maybe they could look into cross-play.

Got to be careful with Inaros because the enemies use your own weapons against you, so don't use attributes that will backfire on you.

Fortuna is pretty good.  Anyone who has done a load of stuff on Cetus will kinda know what to expect.  It's a big open area, around the same size as Cetus with a bunch of unique stuff.  While Cetus is swarming with Grineer Fortuna is the Corpus equivalent; they're are a bunch of new enemies from that faction.  The area itself is more varied than Cetus with more alien looking caves and fauna with also some large Corpus instillations to be explored.  You also get a K-Drive which is a hoverboard you can use to quickly get around.  It's fun to use because you can do tricks and grind rails, but using your Archwing is still the quickest way to get around.

 

It also has it's own, new set of bounties which are actually pretty good but there aren't as many of them as there could be especially since increasing your standing with the dudes you're helping.  You can only level up your standing getting a particular drop and while it is quite common you need a lot of it and requires some grinding.

 

It comes with a new Frame to get but again, you need a lot of materials, some of which are hard to get.  And there is a dude where you can build customisable secondary weapons and a dude who will build you a personal MOA, a robot companion.

 

There is mining and fishing again, but with a different mini-game and you also get a tranq rifle to do hunting for conservation so no needlessly slaying animals like on Cetus.

 

So there is quite a lot of stuff, i just wish there were more varieties of bounties.  I still haven't done much Quills stuff on Cetus so there is still loads for me to do.

Quite a big update here.  Fortuna Part 2 came out last week so Switch players didn't have to wait long to catch up.  It's added a few things but only for those with the right amount of Standing.  I'm still not that far because like I said before the currency that you need to level up that areas standing just isn't dropping for me.  It's frustrating actually, because its making progress far too slow.

 

But in other areas I got my little MOA buddy.  It's like a sentinel since you can use a lot of those mods but with some of the perks of a Kubrow or Kavat.  It's cool but you gotta guild them before you can add an Orokin Catalyst for more mod spaces, so I'm not using it until I can do that.  Speaking of which I finally got a Kavat.  I've had the ability to do it for ages and ages but I was just not getting the DNA strands but I finally got some.  I have stocked up a load of good mods for them over all this time but I'll need another Orokin Catalyst before I can tell if I like it more than my Kubrow.

 

I also finally got a new frame: Chroma Prime.  Still not got regular Chroma and I won't any time soon.  Not sure if I like it that much.  It's good, but not very flashy since it's based around status buffs but you can do a lot of damage with it.  It requires you to be constantly casting your level 3 and keeping an eye on your counter.  It's a bit of a faff, really.

I also have all the Mesa Prime parts except the Orokin Cells since I ate through loads of them crafting weapons and Formas but I've heard it's supposed to be really good so I'm not far off having another strong Frame.

 

And not they've got rid of Alerts.  They have a new thing called Nightwave which is a new way of rewarding you.  You get some kinda typical objectives: kill so many of a certain enemy, do so many certain kinds of mission; that kind of thing, as well as randomly dropping people to capture in a level.  And you build up something like standing but progress is like a Battle Pass in other games, though there is no Battle Pass.  There is quite a bit of good stuff, some of which exclusive to it.  But you do it in all missions rather than the game making new ones for you.  I found Alerts useful for getting materials but I guess this pushes people to do bounties on Cetus and Fortuna, more.  It's also got me playing Nightmare missions more, I suppose, which is something I've been neglecting.

Keep an eye out for Invasions and Gifts From the Lotus. There have been a number of Orokin Catalysts and Reactors come up recently. Generally at least something each week.

I've just finished off my star chart but I've not got access to the daily mission you get for finishing it. 

 

Does anyone know if there some tucked away somewhere? 

 

EDIT:  Doesn't matter, found it.  Way back on Phobos 🙄

I've just found a vendor thanks to a stream who sells the bonds I need to level up my Furtuna standing

All that time trying to earn them...

Yeah. Sorry I'd have said if I'd realised what you meant. I've barely spent any time in Fortuna so it's still a bit hazy for me.

They've made a neat little change recently.  On Cetus at night you can get Eidolon hunts from Konzu, so that makes matchmaking for them so much easier and I've been doing them more.  I always had a vague idea how you fight them but I still prefer to be matched with people who know what they're doing.  Though I do still have my starter Operator weapon which sucks, as I understand it, and I need Whisps to build the parts for a new one, which are pretty frustrating to farm.

 

And also while I was doing some Plains Bounties I matched with someone with a Titania frame.  I've come across people who use it one or two times before, but this guy had it beefed up to heck and I was just doing nothing compared to him (and my Mesa Prime is no slouch).  So I really want Titania now.

Yeah, you have to max your operator weapon, then gild it by collecting wisps and rolling it round to 30 max rank once again. At which point you can begin to craft more powerful ones.

 

I've never done it as I've just had no-one to play with and relieve the grind. I'm pretty much not touching Warframe at present for that reason.

I don't think so.  I guess we'll see.  I have the blue prints to build a new one (I've built one part already) and if I can't build it I guess I'll have to guild it.
