The Plains of Eidolon Remaster 24.6.0 update is now live in Warframe, so let’s take a look at some of the changes.
Vast improvements have been made to the likes of terrain textures, dynamic lighting, foliage details and the day/night cycles in Warframe with the latest update.
You’ll also be able to trap and tranquilise animals in the Plains, as you’ll be able to get Echo-Lures and Rarity Boosters from Master Teasonai to track animals and get them to safety. There’s also a new Conservation Badge and Floofs available from Master Teasonai.
There are new Kuaka and Control variants of the Mergui that can be found throughout the Pains of Eidolon but remember not to kill any as it’s bad luck.
Tusk Thumpers are the latest Grineer machines to threaten Cetus, which vary in size and difficulty. These are the Tusk Thumper, Thumper Bull and Thumper Doma, so keep your eyes peeled for three increasingly difficult Thumpers on your journey.
You’ll also be able to collect a Floof of each type of Tusk Thumper.
Warframe: Plains of Eidolon and Cetus Economy Remaster Lite
With Fortuna’s release, there have been some economy changes based on takeaways from Cetus, which we’ve listed below:
- Replaced Arcane Blueprints with Arcanes in Quills Offerings meaning that Arcanes no longer need to be built.
- Replaced Arcane Blueprints with Arcanes in Hok’s Offerings meaning that Arcanes no longer need to be built.
- Owned Magus, Exodia, and Virtuos Arcane Blueprints have been converted to full-crafted Arcanes.
- Added sell price to Fish Meat (100 Credits per unit). Selling them makes sense to add for inventory purists as changes come for their uses.
- Replaced Bait Blueprints with Baits in Fisher Hai-Luk’s Offerings. This means Baits are no longer craft-ception with other fish parts and can now just be bought outright for Standing.
- Reusable Fish Bait Blueprints can now be sold for 100,000 Credits. Relics of a different time for some, easy Credits for others.
- Zaw Handles now use Fish Oil instead of Fish Scales. Amount normalized to 50 units.
- Normalized Fish Part costs across Amp Part Blueprints – some had 5 rare parts, some had 2, now there’s 3 needed for all.
- Removed Cetus Wisp costs from Operator Armour Blueprints, and replaced them with Eidolon Gems.
- Removed Cetus Wisps from Amp Prism Blueprint, and replaced them with Fish Parts or Eidolon Gems.
- Removed Fish Scales costs from Operator Armour Blueprints, and replaced them with Fish Parts.
- Reduced Standing cost of Cetus Wisps from Quills Offerings.
- Fish Oil can now be sold for 100 Credits.
- Korrudo: When they go high, go low. Powerful pneumatic grips and toecaps amplify every blow. Four ways to deal twice the pain. Find the Korrudo in the Market, or as a Tusk Thumper drop!
- Creator Mode Setting Addition: We have added a new Option called “Creator Mode”! This exists to help players and Content Creators with a simple principle: no distractions, no spoilers.
When this is toggled on:
- Fortuna Citizens won’t reveal their secret.
- The Lotus will no longer be as purple.
- Operator transmissions will be voice only.
- Email on login screen will be all ********** like the password
- On-orbiter transmissions and in-mission bumpers for Invasions / Alerts will not appear.
- Fashion Frame just got a little more energetic! We have now added a SECONDARY Energy customization slot in the Arsenal! This is simply a free added bonus when Forma’ing gear.
- All Gear can unlock this once Forma is applied! All non-Forma compatible goods (Syandanas, Etc) have this automatically.
- Ticker has added a Venus Bounty Trap to their Secondhand Wares! A true hunter keeps their tools close at hand.
- Added Warframe Ability videos for Harrow, Khora, Octavia, and Gara in their respective Arsenal Abilities screen.
- Added out-of-bounds triggers to some spots where it’s possible to get stuck in the Grineer Sealab tileset.
- Added Damage Multiplier stat when previewing Saryn’s Miasma ability.
- Added a custom icon for Nagantaka’s reload speed buff.
- Added Horrasque and Stover to the Codex.
- Tusk and Kuva Fortress Shield Lancers have a new look for their shield!
- Added a tint to the background of certain UI screens to match the current chosen Theme.
- Added a new setting under Equipment > Landing Craft > Interior, where old and future Interiors will live so you no longer need to sell to remove.
Buried Debts: Thermia Fracture Changes:
Players who can handle an increased challenge are now able to opt-in to making their Thermia Fracture’s more difficult! We have added a method to allow players to increase difficulty and lower the overall duration needed to complete 4 Fractures.
- Players can now expend additional Coolant Canisters after a harvest has begun within the first 30 seconds of starting the harvest.
- Each additional Coolant Canisters spent will increase the score of the Fracture by +1 (max of 4)
- Each additional Coolant Canister will increase the frequency of the ‘Burps’.
- Each additional Coolant Canister will increase (pinned) the alert level of the fight.
- Each additional Coolant Canister will add 50 seconds to your Fracture, reducing the overall time it takes to find/complete 4 Fractures.
Fracture Burps happen on a random timer (5-15 seconds) and randomly selected from the list below:
- Nullifier Burp – Burst of energy that creates a nullifier volume around the Fracture for a brief moment.
- Radiation Status Effect Burp – Damage burst with 100% Radiation Status Effect.
- Rage Burp – Increases the damage output of nearby enemies.
- Thermic Raknoids – Spawns Thermic Raknoids. A new Raknoid variant with unique stats and aesthetic!
- Eximus Burp – Spawns Eximus units.
- Enemy Level Burp – Increases the current enemy level.
Warframe “In Air” Ability Changes:
- As many of you are aware, Warframe has been adapting and changing up gameplay to make it smoother and much more ‘Space Ninja’ in its action. Recently we have seen the introduction of the Melee Rework: Phase 1 (which is still in progress), but as an interesting side effect, we have found that some new systems that we have introduced could potentially be applied to other game systems… in this case, Ability use.
- Right now, there are certain powers that just cannot be cast in the air. Some of those powers are easy to address, and we simply remove the restriction. A full breakdown can be found here in the
Removed “cast on ground” requirements for the following Warframe abilities:
- Trinity Well of Life
- Trinity Energy Vampire
- Trinity Link
- Frost Avalanche
- Atlas Tectonics
- Mag Crush
- Chroma Effigy
- Loki Radial Disarm
Additionally, the following abilities require ground to activate, but can now be cast in the air and will do a melee-esque slam to the ground:
- Rhino Stomp
- Banshee Sound Quake
- Oberon Hallowed Ground
- Khora Strangledome
- Nidus Virulence
- Harrow Condemn
General Weapon Changes:

Signature Weapon Changes:
Having a ‘signature’ weapon now actually benefits you! There are still a few signature weapons that will receive this treatment (Scourge, Hystrix, etc).
- Knell: Knell now has a 2 round mag when wielded by Harrow.

- Hildryn is no longer restricted to move at walking speed when charging Balefire.
- Chesa’s new Retrieve functionality can no longer stack with Desecrate and other looting Augments (Pilferdroid/Ore Gaze). This was creating some unintended double dips from a single corpse – the dead can only give so much!

- Restored ability to have Baruuk’s Desert Wind slam pull enemies instead of pushing them by holding block/aim key.
