Yo Sharks  

We just got the announcement that on the 29th of September the current Prime Access will end and that means that soon after a new Prime Access will begin bringing us a new Prime Warframe , Prime weapons , maybe prime companion or prime armor attachments for your frames and most importantly 90 DAY BOOSTERS .

So as a General discussion i want to ask you what do you plan to do on the upcoming Prime Access .

Will you buy it or will you farm it ?

Personally I think i will buy this time only the 90 day boosters and the stuff that comes with the boosters , on the Ash Prime Access I bought the ultimate pack on day 1 and it did not disappoint me , but that is still a nice sum of money and since this time we will most likely get a female frame , I believe i will farm the frame and the weapons that comes with her .

P.S. If Umbra Excalibur is in the next prime access i will once again buy it on day 1 the ULTIMATE PACK

Personally I'd rather farm it and spend money on plat with a 50%/75% discount. I have no need of boosters and I can live without the accessories. It'd have to be something really amazingly awesome to get me to buy PA.

I'll just just play the game until stuff is eventually obtained. Or even beyond that. Wouldn't even call that farimng most of the time. Just a fun game I play rewarding me with cool ingame things. Thus I feel buying the things would only reduce the enjoyment-rate of Warframe for me. Not to mention that I was raised so I try to avoid spending money on useless stuff, or things I can get/make for myself.

Also DE goes too easy on us F2P bums. I can't just sell my rare loot for the local premium currency, but they allow me to dwelve in various market machinations too.

Personally I'll do farming for new gears as usual, but, If I can't get a part (no luck) I prefer to trading with someone.

It's kinda the game to hunt for these parts and be frustrated by the drop rate. Never bought anything Prime.

The danglies are the only thing i would want but i think Prime Access is very expensive.

Theres enough credits at Seimeni / raids, Enough XP at Any Def / Survival and materials kinda just come to you if you play a balanced game.

I do have more spare time than the average person I will admit so maybe shortcuts suit others.

Maybe you are making a contribution to the upkeep of DE and the purchase of some servers for them, that would be noble and I thank you for your contribution on my behalf

To broke... Must farm... Not to mention I am in serious need of forma

Although, in reality, I dislike farming and, as a general rule, do not engage in such activities. I find the amount of rage people experience from poor drops is too high for me. I will, however, join friends on runs that happen to involve items of interest, but I join for the company more than the farm. That way, I am (hopefully) never disappointed.

90 days boosters are amazing indeed , but here's a thing about the affinity booster , i wont argue that isn't worth it as an investment especially if you like putting many forma in your weapons but here's where the problem starts , you cant build more than one forma per day ,so timewalls ruin the value of an 90-day booster ,imho due how the current system works you get more value by building and stacking up forma and one day when you feel ready you can get a 3-day or 7-day booster and spend your time putting those forma in use .I am saying alI this based on my personal experience , I remember i had 17 forma and when the double exp weekend came up i used all of them. Thats the reason i believe that i believe you shouldn't spend your money on the 90-day boosters .But in the end of the day it's your money we are talking about not mine so if you feel it's worth it go for it

I'd consider the various Prime Access (PA) as dlc, either one grinds them out or throws money at DE to look pretty in the Relays. I bought a 7-booster during last updates when the syndicate primaries came out to quickly get through them and to be able to cherrypick the personal best.

Grinding can be half the fun in this game, even though snoozing through the 85th time through a low lvl void can take a serious toll.

So for the coming PA Ember p, Sicarus p and Glaive p will be vaulted?

QuoteQuestion is, is there any way ayu can "help" him?

I think if you're willing to spend money on the Ultimate pack, you'll also be willing to spend money on buying ready formas. Remember you get a LOT of plats from the prime access.

Farm for me, because what else am I doing to do with my key stash.
Pretty sure I can make 1k plat just selling them =X

My personal opinion on most things in warframe is that if I can get it for free (excluding the time spent), I should do it that way because the point of this game for me is collection and part of the fun is the struggle to get the parts. Even if it makes me want to scream into the swirling nexus of RNG purgatory sometimes. Also that way, It leaves me with more plat to spend on Clem noggles.

I'm actually more concerned with which frame and weapons are on their way out, so I can save a copy for friends who join the game later on (or to sell, or save for special occasions like a giveaway. Whichever.)
