Event: Operation Buried Debts - Exploiter Orb

The Operation has been manually progressed by DE (who overestimated the community's willingness to scan the data-hashes), enabling the Exploiter Orb fight. This post is a rough guide of how the fight progresses and its rewards, as well as my opinions on it. Do not continue reading this post if you want to avoid the fight or lore spoilers.

Review: Prisma Grinlok (U24.5.0)

The Prisma Grinlok is an MR11 Semi-Auto rifle, introduced in U24.4, and made available at the next Baro visit. With vast improvements over the base Grinlok and access to an amazing Syndicate Augment, the Prisma Grinlok is one of the best non-sniper precision rifles in the game.

Notably, this will be the first time I review a weapon variant after covering the base version.

Review: Sybaris Prime and Dex Sybaris (U24.4.3)

This will be the first time I'm covering two weapons of the same family at the same time. The families I could have covered in the past are: the Latron Prime/Wraith (I forgot about the Wraith at the time, and consider it largely inferior), the Braton Prime/Vandal (again the Vandal is largely inferior), and the Cernos Rakta/Prime (the Prime functions very differently to the rest of the Cernos family, so I felt it worth covering separately). This time around, both the Sybaris Prime and Dex Sybaris are good rifles worth covering.

The Sybaris Prime is an MR12 Burst-Fire rifle, released in U20.6.2 alongside Oberon Prime. With high crit and Status Chance and rather high base Damage, the Sybaris Prime is a powerful and versatile hard-hitting burst rifle.
The Dex Sybaris is an MR7 Burst-Fire rifle, originally released for Warframe's third anniversary in U18.6.2. With slightly higher crit, but much lower Status Chance, it also hits very hard, but lacks the extra scaling factor that the Prime has. With that said, it is still a very good MR7 rifle.

Event: Operation Buried Debts

Operation: Buried Debts is a new, supposedly recurring Orb Vallis event, revolving around the Exploiter Orb and the new Warframe, Hildryn. While this event is running, all credits and resources are doubled when earned in the Vallis.

Baro Ki'Teer: 8/3/19

There are times when Baro's stock is boring and underwhelming. Then there are times when he really, really wants your Ducats. This is definitely one of the latter.

Nightwave: Replacement for Alerts

Nightwave is a replacement for the Alerts system, essentially a radio show hosted by a person named Nora Night. Standard Alerts will no longer appear, but the special ones like Arbitrations and Gifts of the Lotus will appear as normal. Instead of having random Alerts with random awards randomly start for a fairly short amount of time, Nightwave offers challenges that last for a set, much longer amount of time, with set, known rewards that you can choose.

Bit late to this one, but I wanted to get more experience in the system before posting. That and me being quite busy recently.
