That was the last attempt on you using the old system, Rising. You'll start getting Stalker mail now.

Last attempt? Judging by the updates that implemented the system in the first place, there shouldn't have been a last attempt; it happened well after the update that introduced the new system.

that's the thing. The last old-system attempt stays in the queue the entire time, as though you already got the mail from the stalker. So you need to work that out of the queue and resolve it to get the new system going.

Anyhow, ran into Zanuka for the first time last night. It was actually not that bad - I just unloaded on him with my Magnetic Burston, the rest of my team joined in, and we got ourselves Detron BP and barrels.

Also I managed to get the Vauban Helmet BP. Rushbuilt it (meh, I can afford 25 plat that I've paid for), and set it to cooking in my foundry - should be done by Sunday night. XD SO looking forward to it.

I have also Forma'ed my Burston Prime, and I think I'll need to Forma it again. IMO it needs two extra forma - one (Y) attack polarity, and one (-) tactics polarity, at the least. Ideally I'd want another (Y) polarity, so that you can slot in Shred, Split Chamber and Serration. The Tactics polarity helps with elements, since Stormbringer, Hellfire, and Infected Clip are Tactics.

And I went back to my Brakk last night. Damn, but I love it. Corrosive Heat Brakk was ridiculously OP and useful. I think in terms of damage it edges out Blast Brakk, but then Blast Brakk has the AOE knockdown and a ridiculously high change of proccing, given that while the Brakk's proc chance is 10%, it's firing 10 pellets which each have that chance to proc. On average, I find that almost every other shot procs. All hail the Brakk! Even if the range has been nerfed.

Next time I'm running a Derelict, I'm bringing in my Corrosive Heat Brakk.

Just keep making Salad cry and support the Grineer in Corpus invasions, and Zanuka will show up.

As I understand it, you get a death mark for killing Corpus Bosses and supporting Grineer in invasions.

When you've got a death mark, Salad will send you an email notifying you that Harvester will come looking.

After that, so long as you have death marks from killing bosses and supporting Grineer invasions, harvester will keep coming after you.

But Stalker's deathmark still works the same as before right? Kill a biological target then you get a deathmark?

Don't worry Lowe, after a month you'll be rolling in resources.

What's the maximum damage you guys ever achieved with vectis?

I hit 13k with banshee's sonar but the my personal mod set up only let me reach 2.6k crits and 1.7k normals.

ARRRGGG missed vauban systems again yesterday when it came on alert at silly'o'clock in the morning...... doesn't look like I'll get them anytime soon =/

Started leveling up a few random melee weapons (for the mastery rank) that where clogging up the foundry, and man can I really see why nobody uses them. The Pangolin sword looks pretty cool but its very average, much like the Dark and heat sword. Plus only being able to hit one opponent at a time is tiresome when you've got so used to melee weapons laying waste to a whole mob in one swing ala Galitine and Hate.

LoweGear I added you after our last jaunt, can give you a few decent mods to get you started too.

Did 10k once with a vectis headshot on a Grineer. Everything came together: critical, 2x AP damage bonus, headshot critical bonus... good times, good times, before Damage 2.0. (Though I think Damage 2.0 has been more beneficial to elements.)

Anyway my Vauban finished cooking so I ran a mission with him - did a Solo ODD. Armed with my Burston Prime and Vortex, it was basically a slaughter. Vauban is so op vs Infested. Which, to be fair, he needs to be, given how he has shit for shields.

Also, after yet another speedrun last night - in which we ended almost three quarters of the way through the map before the alarm sounded - Lowe Gear quipped that the Tenno definition of stealth is killing everyone before they raise the alarm. I can't say that's incorrect.

Urgh, I've been working on getting it past 5k even if its just on normal crits. Vs level 20s. Can't even get normal shots past 2k. Is it impossible?

Depends on how you set your Vectis.

You're going to need to drop at least two, probably three (Y) attack polarity Forma into it. Here's how you make a ridiculously high damage Vectis:

1) Serration, obviously. The higher, the better.
2) You'll want to drop in a maxed Point Strike and Vital Sense. Maxed Point Strike will give you 62.5% Critical Chance, while Vital Sense will bring your crit damage to 400%.
3) Maxed Split Chamber will give you a 90% multishot chance, i.e. double damage. Or two rounds for the price of one.
4) If you can find it, a Critical Delay mod will help boost your critical chance to 100%. The reduction in ROF isn't so bad, since this is a single shot weapon.
5) Lastly, slot in a Charged Chamber or a Primed Chamber - this gives additional damage to the first shot in the mag - and since the Vectis is a single-shot break action rifle, every shot will get the bonus damage.

That's now six out of 8 mod slots, which means that you have two slots free. You can stock them with whatever, but I really suggest using a maxed Fast Hands for faster reload - may not seem much, but a little bit keeps adding up.

And for final extra bonus damage, mount a maxed out Rifle Amp aura mod and you get additional 27% damage.

And that's how you make a ridiculous critical damage focused vectis. Note that in my personal build, I skip Critical Delay so that I can mount elemental damage mods for some extra kick - the tradeoff in guaranteed critical hits is IMO worth it for the elemental damage effects, particularly vs Corpus or Grineer.

Also, when fighting Grineer, go for headshots. That will net you the headshot bonus, which will add to your damage..

A couple of things I'd like to ask:

1. What's the best way to get Neural Sensors? I want to expand my Warframe arsenal, and yet the lack of Neural Sensors is the only thing preventing me from building a 4th Warframe (already have Oberon cooking since he doesn't need Neural Sensors).

2. What's a good sidearm to have? Already have the Aklato, though I want to expand my options.

Alad V has a good drop rate for Neural Sensors. The only issue with that is, well, it's Alad V. Unless you have the right weapon setups, or allies with the right weapon setups, that battle will be a nightmare. Otherwise... I guess Survivals in Jupiter?

As for sidearms, I'm pretty happy with the Magnus.
