Buried Debts: Hotfix 24.5.1

Changes

Fixed Nekros’ Desecrate removing the Exploiter Orbs body, resulting in missing death explosion.

Buried Debts: Update 24.4.0

Changes

Chesa Kubrow now attempts to retrieve the single closest loot, the same way Nekros’ Desecrate does.

Fortuna: Hotfix 24.2.15

Fixes

Fixed Ratels spawned from a Corpus Sniper shadow (Nekros’ Shadows of the Dead) not appearing purple or having a Health decay, thus resulting in an inability to progress through certain missions (Defense waves, etc). 

Fortuna: Hotfix 24.1.3 + 24.1.3.1

Fixes

Fix to Howl and Nekros’ Terrify sometimes not making the target run away in the Plains or Vallis. 

Fortuna: Hotfix 24.1.2 + 24.1.2.1

Fixes

Fixed an issue with Nekros's Irkalla Binds not being attached when in Archwing mode. 

Fortuna: Hotfix 24.1.1 + 24.1.1.1

Fixes

Fixed Nekros’ Desecrate duplicating Orb Vallis Base Capture Datamasses.

Fortuna: Update 24.1.0 - TennoGen Round 14

Changes

Loki Lupu Helmet by LuboxNekros Charon Helmet by malayu and Scharkie

Fortuna: Hotfix 24.0.4

Changes

Tweaked Icarius Syandana offsets that got a bit wonky on Mag, Banshee, Nekros, Saryn, and Valkyr. 

Fortuna: Update 24.0

Changes

Improved Nekros’ Shadow of the Dead FX to better support replicating larger AI.

The Sacrifice: Hotfix 23.3.2

Fixes

Fixed Nekros’ Shadow of the Dead Infested Brood Mothers producing looping/stacking maggot sound effects.

The Sacrifice: Update 23.1.0: TennoGen Round 13

Changes

Nekros Graxx Skin by Faven

Nekros Ion Helmet by Yatus

The Sacrifice: Hotfix 23.0.5

Fixes

Fixed Nekros Prime having a ‘None’ Skin option.

Beasts of the Sanctuary: Hotfix 22.20.8 + 22.20.8.1

Changes

For consistency, damage link abilities (Trinity, Nidus, Nekros) will no longer transmit self-damage, but you will still get the damage reduction. This is particularly relevant for the healer/support class of Trinity who had become the go-to DPS frame in addition to the intended support roles. The re-release of Mods like Aviator added to some clever but ultimately uncharacteristic roles for Trinity.

Beasts of the Sanctuary: Update 22.20.0

Fixes

Fixed Nekros being able to Desecrate already desecrated bodies or invincible bodies.

Shrine of the Eidolon: Zephyr Prime 22.16.4

Fixes

Fixed Nekros’ Soul Punch projectile not affecting nearby enemies.

Shrine of the Eidolon: Hotfix 22.16.2

Fixes

Fixed Nekros’ Shadows of the Dead clones not attacking enemies. 

Shrine of the Eidolon: Hotfix 22.16.1

Fixes

There are some other known issues we are working on, including Nekros' Shadows of the Dead not functioning properly as well as Vor’s Prize.

Shrine of the Eidolon: Update 22.16.0

Changes

Updated the look of Nekros’ Shadows of the Dead minions to help players better differentiate between them and real enemies.

Shrine of the Eidolon: Update 22.13.0

Changes

Ivara’s Prowl will now only steal from each enemy once total, instead of once per Ivara. Our intent is to mirror how Nekros’ Desecrate also functions, considering the recent movement of Sentient Cores to certain Sentient variants. It’s rewarding to be the warmly welcomed Nekros in an Argon Crystal run, and we hope Ivara will now be welcomed equivalently.

Plains of Eidolon: Update 22.10.0

Changes

Warframe Specters are now much smarter! If you don't recall, Specters are craftable gear you can equip to summon an AI companion in battle. We've done a general intelligence pass on their proficiency with Weapons, and we've also updated their power-casting logic. Virtually every power is now castable with only a few exceptions! Specters CANNOT cast the following Abilities: Vauban's Minelayer, Ivara's Zipline, Titania's Razorwing, Nekros’ Desecrate and Shadows of the Dead, Excalibur’s Exalted Blade, Valkyr’s Hysteria, Wukong’s Primal Fury, Cloud Walker, and Defy, Atlas’ Petrify and Tectonics, Limbo's entire kit (save for the damage aspect of Banish), and finally Zephyr’s Dive Bomb. 

Plains of Eidolon: Update 22.6.0 + Hotfix 22.6.0.1

Changes

Removed blue undertone from Nekros Irkalla’s energy wisps.

Fixes

Fixed Nekros Irkalla showing incorrect FX.

Plains of Eidolon: Update 22.3.0

Fixes

Fixed an issue with Nekros Deluxe's auxiliary and attachments not working as intended.

Plains of Eidolon: Hotfix 22.2.5

Fixes

Fixed Armor Attachments not showing up on the Nekros Irkalla skin.

Plains of Eidolon: Hotfix 22.2.4

Changes

Improved the cloth physics on Nekros’ Irkalla Binds.

Fixes

Plains of Eidolon: Hotfix 22.2.3

Fixes

Fixed Nekros’ Irkalla chains clipping through his body.

Fixed Nekros’ Irkalla wrist chains floating away.  

Plains of Eidolon: Hotfix 22.2.1

Fixes

Fixed Nekros Prime arm dangle details appearing when equipped on the Nekros Irkalla Skin. As is standard and precedent for all in-house Deluxe Skins, the override of Prime Details is the intent. 

Plains of Eidolon: Update 22.2.0

Additions

Defy death itself, and crush the living with new Deluxe skins for Nekros and Ember! Return from the underworld to haunt your enemies with the Nekros Irkalla Deluxe Skin, and burn your foes to a crisp with Ember Vermillion Deluxe Skin! Each Warframe Deluxe Skin is also available as a collection with signature weapon skins and accessories.

Plains of Eidolon: Hotfix 22.1.1

Fixes

Fixed supply drop missions in the Plains not progressing if you resurrected the enemy that held the beacon using Nekros' Shadow Of The Dead.

Plains of Eidolon: Update 22.1.0

Fixes

Fixed the first shadow from Nekros Shadows of the Dead being spawned far away and potentially out of bounds.

Changes

The Neo N7 Relic has been introduced into the mix to fix Nekros Prime Systems Blueprint being accidentally vaulted, and the Meso S6 Relic has also been introduced to fix Spira Prime Blade being accidentally vaulted. 

Oberon Prime: Hotfix 20.6.2

Fixes

Fixed Infested Boiler Nekros shadows spawning pods when they die (they are only supposed to spawn them on damage).

Octavia’s Anthem: Hotfix 20.6.1

Changes

Oberon’s Renewal now heals friendly summoned units (IE Nekros’ Shadows of the Dead) at 1/3 the rate but consumes 1/3 the Energy drain for doing so. The change to have Renewal not affect friendly summons was met with varying opinions, and is now further tweaked to meet a happy middle ground. 

Octavia’s Anthem: Update 20.6.0 + 20.6.0.1

Changes

Nekros’ Shadows of the Dead can now summon Eximus units! This fixes the issue of Nekros being unable to summon Eximus units at all.

Hotfix 20.4.5

Fixes

Fixed an issue with Scavenger Ospreys summoned by Nekros/manipulated by Nyx/other abilities consuming loot (they ignore it now when ‘under the influence’).

Octavia's Anthem: Update 20

Changes

Nekros' Terrify range and duration increased in Conclave.

Nekros’ passive is now 6 seconds of +5 Heal On Kill in Conclave (disabled on Health damage).

The Glast Gambit: Hotfix 19.11.3

Fixes

Fixed an issue where Nekros’ Noble Animation would play the Dual Pistol idle variant while holding a Rifle.

The Glast Gambit: Hotfix 19.5.6+19.5.6.1

Fixes

Fixed Nekros and Frost Idle sounds when using their animation sets with other Warframes.

The Glast Gambit: Hotfix 19.5.4

Fixed Nekros’ Hyekka Master clones damaging allies with her fire grenade as per: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/714188-nekross-shadow-hyekka-master-burns-other-shadows/

Fixed a Law of Retribution progression stopper due to Nekros spawning a Grineer holding a Tritium Bomb as per: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/698100-nekros-shadows-of-the-dead-can-spawn-with-tritium-bomb-for-last-part-of-law-of-retribution-raid/

The Index Preview

Changes

The Vacuum Within: Hotfix #3

Fixes

Fixed Nekros not being able to Desecrate dead enemies that are playing a death animation.

The Silver Grove

Changes

Increased cost of Nekros’ Desecrate in Conclave

Reduced duration, range and added a debuff icon on target of Nekros’ Desecrate debuff in Conclave

Removed Energy drop from Nekros’ Desecrate in Conclave

Decreased Nekros’ Desecrate delay slightly to make it more popcorny.

Fixes

Fixed Duration Mods reducing energy per enemy for Nekros’ Desecrate. Power Efficiency should only affect energy per enemy for Desecrate. 

Specters of the Rail: U2.2

Changes

Changed Nekros’ Shadows of the Dead teleport range to greater than 30 meters from Nekros. To clarify function here, if a Shadow is 30 meters away from you on recast, it will teleport to range. If it is less than 30 meters away, it will heal.

Specters of the Rail: U2.1

Changes

Desecrate is now a toggle ability! Energy (or Health if you use the Despoil Augment) are consumed on Desecration. 

Corpses that enter the Desecrate radius will be eligible for desecration. The first corpse 'heats up' slowly for a couple seconds and then the rest occur in rapid succession (like popcorn).

Health orbs are no longer guaranteed drops from Desecrated corpses. They are now tied in with the chance for additional loot drops.

The number of Shadows spawned has been reduced to 7 and is no longer affected by Mods. This is a necessary change for performance on all platforms. To compensate for this, Nekros now spawns stronger Shadows prioritized by heavy unites killed with Shield multiplier and draw aggro more heavily. 

Fixes

Fixed Nekros’ Desecrate pickups not being shot upwards for Clients.

Update: Specters of the Rail

Fixes

Fixed a case where Nekros’ Soul Punch caused some performance issues.

The Removal Of Arcane Enhancements On Nekros’ Mortos Syandana And Valkyr’S Bonds Is Now Live, And Any Attached Arcanes Have Been Returned To Your Inventory. As Stated In Hotfix 16.5.2, This Change Is Due To Nekros And Valkyr Having An Unfair Advantage Over Other Warframes By Having One Additional Arcane Slot.:

Hotfix 16.5.2

Changes

The Nekros Mortos Syandana and Valkyr Bonds can no longer be Enhanced. This change is due to Nekros and Valkyr having an unfair advantage over other Warframes by having one additional Arcane slot. We're going to be removing Arcanes off these two attachments, and running a script to compensate players so the Enhancements can be used on intended Syandanas. We will notify everyone when this script has started.

Hotfix 16.5.1

Fixed Arrow skins and Nekros & Valkyr’s unique attachments not using the player’s custom colors.
