We already covered two of the new weapons added in this bundle, Glaive Prime and Sicarus Prime. Now we’re going to talk about the real stars of this new update. Ember and Frost Prime are two very sleek and thematic frames, and they each have their uses in combat. These two Unvaulted frames offers twists on the theme of fire and ice, and it’s pretty clear which is the better one.
Frost Prime is undoubtedly the better of the two thanks to its potential massive Shield pool. Ember Prime is OK by comparison Not having the same potential for defense as Frost, Ember is more about aesthetics than anything else. If I were to chase one set of Relics, it would be for Frost Prime. Whether or not you make the same decision is entirely up to you.
Ember Prime and Frost Prime both have boosted base stats and new Polarities. With a bit faster move speed and some other buffs, Ember can be an effective melee build. By bounding between various enemies and using a potent melee weapon, you can easily avoid most damage purely on speed. Ember is also decently armored, so can stand up a bit more in combat.
Frost Prime brings its icey abilities to new heights, holding a more solid footing thanks to boosted defenses. It’s one of the best Shield-based Warframes in the game, with the right build. It has one of the higher shield pools in the game, at nearly 4,000, making it incredibly tanky. It’s offensive abilities also possess a little flair thanks to improved visual effects. If you’re looking for a tanky build that’s cool as ice, you can’t go wrong with Frost Prime.

Then you can go about your merry way and farm at your leisure. There is another faster option though, and we’ll talk about that next. Here are the Relics you need to look for with each Waframe:

Once you have the Relics, it’s time to start cracking them for loot. If you want a full guide on cracking Void Relics, we have that handy. You will need a fair few resources to build the weapons as well. So make sure you check the Blueprints in your inventory to make sure you have the items you need to actually build it.
