This is not for new players. May contain spoilers.
This is not the fastest way to do it. Normal Adaro with Rest and Rage is still faster. This method is just more convenient, with a larger margin for error.
Results (one sample, with affinity booster):
9 minutes, 37 seconds.
Total affinity per ~195,000
Total affinity gained on warframe (What I actually care about): ~938,000
Total affinity gained on warframe per ~97,500
Any random unranked warframe from unranked to max ranked in less than ten minutes, solo.
Without an affinity booster this farm will bring your warframe from unranked to around rank 23 in one run.
Any (unranked) warframe.
[Arcane Trickery] rank 5.
Mastery rank 19+ and/or an Orokin reactor.
I use a hammer in the video, but skiajati with a finisher build is better.
Helminth with subsumed [Baruuk] warframe.
[Endless Lullaby] augment mod.
Sonic Dash from Vazarin school of focus.
[Magus Lockdown] and [Magus Cloud].
[Shade] sentinel with [Ghost] precept.
Grab any (unranked) warframe.
Infuse Baruuk’s Lull on the first ability slot.
Get a hammer (preferably [Fragor Prime] or [Kuva Shildeg]) or [Skiajati] nikana (which is better due to its invisibility buff).
Configure the game to “Solo” and “Steel Path”.
Go to Sedna, Adaro or Dakata, Kuva Fortress (nicer end tiles).
Get to the extraction tile without killing anything.
Use your first ability (Lull).
Let your gavel ring justice off their thin, tin skulls.
Repeat steps 9 and 10 until nothing breathes anymore.
I’m still testing stuff. Also I did this less than ten times, so there’s a lot of room for improvements. Right now my record is 8 minutes 30 seconds. I’m looking forward to seeing how much further this number can be reduced. I would love to see other people improve this farm.
FaILed tO cOnNecT To cHAt sERveR. I disconnected my internet during the run, because Mesa is my practice warframe. I didn’t want to level her.
From here on is just some additional information and tips and tricks, for people that are new to stealth affinity farms.
The stealth affinity buff is shown on the top right corner of the screen in the buff bar.
The stealth affinity buff gives you +100% affinity per each uninterrupted stealth kill you get on unalerted enemies. This buff stacks to up to 500% bonus affinity.
The buff disappears if you kill an alerted enemy or take damage from them.
Baruuk’s Lull resets the enemies’ alert level to unalerted when they fall asleep.
You can’t do finishers to enemy kubrows. Just try to head shot them and pray for a crit. You can also bring a silenced powerful primary that can oneshot. I couldn’t bother to search for one in my arsenal.
Hol’up, detecting stealth play resonance. Hitting the glassed enemies once or twice with your melee, removes the glass. Proceed to stun and sleep them again, and then finish them.
[Arcane Trickery] is extremely unreliable. Make good use of the time you are invisible. Pray to RNGesus and don’t stop the finishers.
Skiajati’s invisibility on the other hand, is reliable, but its duration is low and it breaks upon ability cast or attack.
A [Shade] sentinel with [Ghost] precept can be helpful but unreliable just like [Arcane Trickery].
Try to balance the three sources of invisibility you have for optimal results (Trickery, Skiajati, Shade).
Sonic Dash and [Magus Lockdown] are very handy tools, learn to love them. alternatively you can equip Naramon for its Affinity Spike if you have a focus lens installed on your melee to get some more focus out of your time.
Naramon’s Affinity Spike increases the affinity you gain with your melee ONLY. I care about my warframe in this farm not my melee.
I didn’t have any energy problems with [Arcane Energize] rank 5 equipped. Depending on luck and skill, you may need to bring some energy pads, if you don’t have one.
Here’s the forum post link that I forgot to
Another Warframe beginner’s “How To” tutorial on the PS4, although it’s not really platform specific. This means it’s useful for PC and Xbox One as well. In this episode we take on a “Survival” mission solo, and learn how to Fuse Mods – along with a few other tricks.
