A new update, Beasts of the Sanctuary is on its way to the tumultuous universe of Warframe allowing us to directly interact with all the enemies we have synthesised over the years. Sanctuary Onslaught is a wave-based endless Survival mode where we will be transported into the domain of Cephalon Simaris to fight against increasingly difficult waves of enemies.
Portals will be opened to transport you and your allies to new zones when a wave is cleared, which will increase the difficulty and really test your skills. As each new wave begins you will need to kill them as quickly as you can to gain a lot of Focus but the real prize is the newest Warframe, Khora.
Due to the Damage 2.0 update not being quite ready, and much of Khora’s kit floating around the new system, she undertook a slight rework which delayed her release a little bit. She is still a Frame you are going to want to pick up.
What about her abilities though? Well, Khora comes fully equipped with a significant amount of crowd control and will ironically be quite useful in the very game mode that she is farmed from. Her abilities are as follows;
- Whipclaw: Send enemies wheeling with a deafening whipcrack.
- Ensnare: Bind a hapless target in living metal, entangling others who stray too close. Disperse the trap with the crack of a whip. This will most likely deal damage when dispersed.
- Venari: Summon a ferocious, gleaming Kavat. Use to cycle between Attack, Protect and Heal postures. Venari is going to be an absolute staple of Khora considering Venari is an additional companion and one that can cover every single base depending on your playstyle or the mission.
- Strangledome: Weave a dome of living chain that ensnares and strangles any enemy within, and any foolish enough to approach. I am just incredibly excited about this one, the perfect crowd control which I assume will also deal a significant amount of damage alongside all the ensnaring.
When Beasts of the Sanctuary arrives, Khora will be shattered and it will be up to us to find her parts and rebuild her. In a relatively simple and unsurprising twist, Tenno will need to visit Simaris at a Relay to enter into Sanctuary Onslaught. The deeper you go the more chances you will get to receive one or more of Khora’s parts. Since Onslaught is a play on Survival in an RNG-based game, there may be a random chance on certain waves to earn one of her parts.
Hopefully, you all get lucky and unlock her on the first run. Beasts of the Sanctuary and Khora will be arriving on PC later this week and on consoles in May. Cannot wait.
What do you think about Khora? Will she be your new favourite Frame?
