Digital Extremes continues to patch the Plains, improve its new Frame and much more.
Digital Extremes continues to hammer away on Warframe’s newest update Plains of Eidolon, issuing hotfix after hotfix to improve the overall economy and progression of the open world. The newest hotfix 22.0.5 targets fishing and allows bait blueprints to be reused.
Prior to this, players had to grind Cetus standing, purchase the blueprint, craft the bait and so on to fish properly.
The hotfix also makes it so that certain fish have an increased chance of spawning when using the right bait. Other changes include increasing the damage that the basic Amp does for Operators, improving enemy spawn points and navigation, further optimizing mining and even changing new Warframe Gara’s Mass Vitrify so that it travels downwards and covers enemies at the bottom of slopes.
Thus far Plains of Eidolon has had severe growing pains but it’s been roughly a week and the amount of Cetus standing from Bounties, Incursions, gems and whatnot have been improved. We’ll find out if Plains of Eidolon is worth sticking with in the coming weeks, especially for new players. Check out the full patch notes for the hotfix below.
