Of the many different farming activities in Warframe, the most popular and profitable is to farm for Prime variants of weapons and frames. The Prime versions of Warframes have higher stats and more powerful abilities, making them essentially the platform that you build the best version of a Warframe onto. The Prime Weapons work in much the same way. Also, the Prime variants look really cool.
Farming Prime Blueprints is also a great way for talented players to earn some extra Platinum. Many players focus their later time in the game on unlocking rare Relics and holding Prime variant Blueprint parts to speculate on the price. This level of economic savvy is beyond the scope of this guide though. For now, let’s just show you how to get some Prime parts. We previously covered how to unlock the normal variant of Ivara, now let’s talk about Ivara Prime.
Also, if you want to know how to farm Baza Prime and Aksomati Prime Relics in Warframe, we’ve got a guide for that.
Ivara Prime Relics
Prime Relics spawn from a rather large and varied loot pool. The amount of Relics is massive in Warframe, meaning that players will have to do targeted farming if they are looking for a specific Warframe drop. In the case of Ivara Prime, here’s the breakdown of which Relics to focus on.
- Blueprint – Meso N9
- Chassis – Neo I1
- Neuroptics – Meso C4
- Systems – Axi A9
Ivara Prime Relic Farming Locations
Each Relic for any Warframe is usually locked to a specific mission or mission type. With Ivara Prime there’s a few different planets you will want to head for. Some of these missions have guaranteed Relic drops, others are a randomized chance from a limited loot pool. Either way, expect to spend a bit of time doing the actual farming.
- Lith – Hepit in the Void. This is the quickest of the mission types on the list. Capture is a very easy game type, just rush the target.
- Meso – Sedna, Uranus and Mars Disruption missions have the highest drop chance for both types of Meso relics.
- Neo – Best overall drop chance is Sedna, Uranus and Lua Disruption missions. High level players can get a slightly better chance on the Lvl40-50 Ghoul Bounties. Xini on Eris is another option. Interception is best done as a group, as you have to hold multiple points for a set amount of time. The A rotation is a guaranteed Neo Relic.
- Axi – Xini on Eris. The B and C rotations on this Interception mission will drop an Axi Relic. Usually, you can earn both Neo and Axi Relics in this area if your luck is good. Disruption missions on Lua also have a similar Axi A9 drop chance.
If you’re into that sort of thing, here’s a video guide as well.
As far as cracking the Relics you’ve now farmed that’s a bit of an involved process. Here’s a detailed guide on farming, refining and cracking Relics.
