Warframe Guide: How to get Nyx

How To Get Nyx In Warframe

We’re back once again here at ISKMogul with yet another Warframe guide. For you new folks in the back, Warframe is a free-to-play shooter made by Canadian studio, Digital Extremes. The game has earned a pretty good reputation over the years for delivering a truckload of fun and engaging content across a variety of expansions.

Plenty of Warframe players have some issues figuring out these complex mechanics. The common questions of “How do I unlock this Warframe?” and “Where do I find this item?” are very common questions in the community. So following our guides on farming and building Warframes like Ivara, Mesa, Vauban and others, here’s a new how to get a Warframe guide. That way players know exactly what to do.

Nyx is the next entry in our guides. Nyx is “On her own or with a group, Nyx can turn the tide of battle in her favor.”

Nyx has a fair few abilities that make her a wonderfully effective support frame. Nyx can inflict mayhem into the psyche of all who oppose her. Her potent Mind Control allows her to redirect enemy attacks. Psychic Bolts are Nyx’s pure DPS ability, with a decent range. Her ultra-powerful Chaos AoE is basically a more insane Mind Control, causing affected enemies to attack anyone within range. Absorb is a more defensive option with the potential for a temporary buff by sacrificing other stats.

The first step to crafting Nyx is to get those Blueprints. The Blueprints aren’t all that hard to get, there’s just a bit of a wait involved. The Phorid Invasions are your source for the needed Blueprints. After players defeat it and reach the extraction point, they will receive one of the three pieces.

To check active Invasions, just go to the Navigation screen, then the missions in the top right. The fist symbol is what you should look for. The name will denote Phorid types, which is what you should farm. The Phorid are a special boss variant of the standard Infested Chargers, to they’re a fair bit tougher than your average mutant freak.

  • Chassis – 38% drop
  • Neuroptics – 38% drop
  • Systems – 22% drop

Here’s a quick primer on what missions on what planets to do if you’re farming basic resources. We’ve listed the most common of the resources you will need here.

  • Alloy Plate: Venus, Sedna, Jupiter, Ceres, Pluto and Phobos
  • Ferrite: Earth, Mercury, Neptune and Orokin Void
  • Rubedo: Earth, Europa, Phobos, Sedna, Pluto and Orokin Void
  • Polymer Bundle: Venus, Mercury and Uranus

Then there’s the rare drops. These are pretty easy for those wanting Nyx to farm. No need to mess with timed resources or complex boss fights here.

  • Neural Sensors: Missions on Jupiter and the Kuva Fortress
  • Control Module: Void Missions are a good source for this, as are higher level missions on Europa and Neptune
  • Morphics: Mercury, Mars, Europa and Pluto
  • Orokin Cell: Defeat Lech Kril (Mars, War) or General Sargas Ruk (Saturn) for the best drop chance. Also found on Saturn, Ceres and Orokin Derelict.

To assemble Nyx, you will need the following resources for each part, and some extras for final assembly:

Chassis

  • 15,000 Credits
  • 1 Morphics
  • 100 Ferrite
  • 300 Rubedo

Neuroptics

  • 15,000 Credits
  • 150 Alloy Plate
  • 1 Neural Sensors
  • 150 Polymer Bundle
  • 500 Plastids

Systems

  • 15,000 Credits
  • 1 Control Module
  • 1 Morphics
  • 500 Salvage
  • 220 Plastids

Full Frame

  • 25,000 Credits
  • 1 Nyx Chassis
  • 1 Nyx Neuroptics
  • 1 Nyx Systems
  • 1 Orokin Cell

Once you have all the Blueprints, head to the Foundry and start build. Although remember, it’s going to take time. And the few days you have to wait can be better spent doing other farming or leveling up gear, so save your Platinum and don’t rush it. Also, check to make sure you have an open slot before beginning the build.

Warframe is free-to-play now on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch. The developers recently deployed the Rising Tide update, which introduced the first of the player-built ships, the Railjack. You will want to jump on that to be ready when Empyrean drops next year.
