This Warframe guide is all about Excalibur. In it, you will learn how to build Excalibur in Warframe, where to find blueprints, an overview of mods, what are the pros and cons of this character. So, let’s begin!
Excalibur is the most average warframe, not tailored for anything specific, but limitedly suitable for any situation. He can’t be called either a damage dealer or a support – he’s something in between and therefore very popular among novice players.
This is one of the most famous and very first warframes that exists. It is he who can most often be seen on advertising banners and in game trailers. Excalibur can be obtained in one of two ways.
The first is to actually choose it at the very beginning.
The second way is to buy his blueprint, and then get his details for killing the Ambulas boss at the Hades location on the planet Pluto.
Initially, Excalibur has 100 health, 100 shields, 65 armor and 100 energy. When he reaches level 30, he will have 300 health, 300 shields and 150 energy.
Excalibur is most often chosen at the beginning because he looks noticeably prettier and more stylish than his closest brothers – Volt and Loki. In addition, it is generally accepted that for beginners this is the best choice at the start. He is quite agile and runs fast. All of its initial characteristics are optimized so that you can join the game as quickly as possible.
Excalibur, like any warframe in the game, has four basic mods (they are skills, skills, abilities, talents). Let’s list them.
Cleaving Dash – allows you to cover long distances in a matter of moments, cutting in half or even quarters of all enemies in your path. Sometimes Cleave Dash is used for damage, but more often players use it just to move quickly.
blinding light – by far the most popular ability of this warframe, which is very often useful in PvP, because when a player simply does not see you, he cannot do anything. Blinding Light is often used when crowds of enemies surround you. Along with the fact that you blind the enemy, he takes additional damage for the duration of the blind. This mod is especially helpful when your enemies are very high levels.
Super jump – the name speaks for itself. A very useful and at the same time requiring very low energy mod that allows you to jump to the upper floors. True, in order for the superjump to succeed, you must first climb at least some box.
THIS IS INTERESTING!
Shining Spear – your hero sticks a sword into the ground, which he takes out of nowhere, and fiery spears fly out of the ground very effectively and beautifully, which can be enhanced with various additional mods. The ability works well in open spaces, when enemies do not hide behind covers and easily fall into the zone of destruction of spears.
Blueprint of Excalibur
How to build Excalibur in Warframe? As I said, for this you need to go through the final boss on the planet Pluto, in a location called Hades. In addition, you will need an Excalibur blueprint.
What is a blueprint in Warframe? The drawings indicate all the components necessary to assemble certain items in the Forge.
Blueprints are used to build Warframes, Guardians, and the Orokin Catalyst and Reactor. In addition, separate drawings for assembling weapons and helmets.
So, the blueprint of Excalibur can be bought on the market for 35,000 credits. In this case, you will have to wait 3 days until the warframe is created. However, you can instantly create Excalibur for only 50 platinum. However, if you have real money, then you can not worry at all and just buy this warframe in the store for 75 platinum.
In addition to the warframe itself, the Excalibur blueprints include the Avalon helmet, which increases shields but reduces health.
So, if you are just starting to play, then Excalibur is a worthy choice.
Excalibur does not have a role in the team as such. Unless, he can save allies by blinding enemies. But many other warframes do better with this, for example – Nyx or the notorious Loki.
If you already have well-pumped mods for it, then you will like this warframe all the more.
But as soon as you get a taste, then there will come an understanding that Excalibur is too weak for you. At high levels, using this character only makes sense in PvP or in missions when you just want to have fun. However, this does not apply to our next hero!
This comrade can do more than his younger brother.
How to get Excalibur Prime? Unfortunately not. It could be obtained until 2013 by purchasing founder status.
Prime’s health and shields are the same as regular Prime’s. But shields regenerate much faster.
It also has an additional polarity slot and an aura.
All his skills are the same as those of the regular Excalibur. If you do not put gains, then the ult up to level 30 will no longer be effective.
In general, Excalibur Prime has two advantages that no other Warframe has.
First, he is unique. Few people have it – it is truly rare to find it. Only a select few have the opportunity to play this warframe, which of course adds to its happy owners a certain status among the players.
Secondly, it looks very beautiful and stylish – much cooler than the usual Excalibur.
