How it Works:
Earn Primes with Aya
With Prime Resurgence, you’ll have a more direct path to earning Prime Warframes and Weapons through gameplay. Earn Aya in Missions to purchase Void Relics containing the specific Prime components you want from Varzia.
Earn Primes with Instant Access
For each new rotation, you will be able to access all the available Prime Items instantly with Regal Aya. The price of Regal Aya has not increased since last year’s Prime Resurgence event and Platinum is still included with each purchase.
With Regal Aya, you have more agency in choosing the specific Prime Item you want to purchase with Regal Aya, including individual Prime Accessories. However, you can still purchase bundles for Regal Aya as well.
The History of Prime Resurgence and What’s Changed Since:
On November 16th, 2021, we launched a time-limited scheduled event in Maroo’s Bazaar on all Platforms: Prime Resurgence. In the goal of addressing the major pain points with our Prime Vault program, we put Prime Resurgence to the test as an alternative. After several weeks of rotating through Primed goods, we concluded the event in successful fashion.
The months that followed consisted of a review of its performance based on player feedback and interaction with the program. We determined that with its success, it met the criteria to permanently replace the Prime Vault program for good!
Before we get into what's changed, we want to reiterate that the return of Prime Resurgence maintains the two options to gaining access to Prime goods:
- Instant access through purchasing (Regal Aya)
- Free path access through gameplay (Aya and Relics)
Thanks to your feedback during the event last year, we have been able to make some great quality of life changes as you see listed below:
Increased rotation length between Prime sets.
- During the event in 2021, the rotations were a week long. Players agreed that this was too short a window to earn the Aya and Relics they need from that rotation. So we have increased the rotation length to roughly a month each (specific dates will be made available for each rotation when we near the next).
Added the ability to trade 1x Aya for 5x Void Traces.
- Similar to the 5x Ducats available at Varzia, you can now use your Aya to purchase 5x Void Traces.
Added a ‘Visit Varzia’ fast travel option to the Relic Segment UI - selecting this option will prompt a confirmation window before taking you to Varzia in Maroo’s Bazaar.
Added a ‘Prime Resurgence’ tab in the in-game Market where Aya and Regal Aya purchases can be made instead of traveling to Maroo’s Bazaar.
Aya drop Changes:
Added Aya in Zariman Bounties.
- After Prime Resurgence concluded, Zariman Bounties were introduced that included some Vaulted Relic drops. We have updated the drop tables to swap the Vaulted Relic drops with Aya in Zariman Bounties!
- Rebalanced Aya drop chance in Stage 2 & Final Stage in Level 25-30 Cambion Drift Bounties.
- Added Aya in Zariman Bounties.
- An inbox message will now be sent upon installing the Relic Segment in your Orbiter explaining Prime Resurgence and Varzia!
Prime Resurgence FAQ:
What is Aya and Regal Aya?
These are the currencies that are used to purchase items from Varzia!
Aya is an earned currency that is your free path to gaining Prime items through the in-game Relic system. It is a resource that is exchanged for Void Relics and other non-premium items available in Varzia’s wares. Aya is found in Void missions and Bounties and has a chance of appearing in Relic Packs available for purchase in the in-game Market for Platinum or Syndicate Offerings for Standing.
Aya has replaced Vaulted Relics in the Void and Bounties Drop Tables. In other words, where there was once a Vaulted Relic, there will now be 1 Aya instead. And that Aya can be traded in at Varzia to purchase Relics of your choosing during Prime Resurgence.
The public Drop Tables have been updated to include Aya drop locations, so that you have all the information needed to plan your Aya acquisition.
What requires Aya vs. Regal Aya to purchase? And why?
All of Varzia’s wares maintain their previous acquisition methods. If something was purchase-only via Prime Vault, it will appear in her shop as such (Prime Accessories for example) and will require Regal Aya to purchase. While others that have been previously released through a free-path method, will maintain that as well using free-path Aya.
Regal Aya is a premium currency (similar to Platinum, but not tradeable) that gives you instant access to Prime Warframes, Weapons, Accessories, and Bundles available in Varzia’s wares. It can be purchased in the Market or online storefronts.
Can you buy multiple Regal Aya packs?
Yes, like Platinum Packs, you can buy multiple Regal Aya packs! As a currency, you can acquire and hold it in whatever amounts you need for your desired items.
Do the Prime Warframes and Weapons come with Inventory Slots, Orokin Catalysts and Orokin Reactors?
Yes! If you purchase a Prime Warframe or Weapon with Regal Aya, it will come with an Inventory slot and either an Orokin Reactor or Catalyst already installed.
Do the Regal Aya bundles come with Platinum?
Yes! Regal Aya Bundles come with bonus Platinum.
- 3 Regal Aya: 200 Platinum bonus
- 7 Regal Aya: 400 Platinum bonus
15 Regal Aya: 1200 Platinum bonus
NEW SYNDICATE: KAHL’S GARRISON
Upon completion of the Veilbreaker Quest, Tenno gain access to Kahl’s Garrison, a new Syndicate located in the Drifter’s Camp on Earth. If you have already completed the Veilbreaker Quest, congrats! You can now Rank up the Garrison by completing weekly Break Narmer Missions to build up the camp with new faces.
There are 5 Ranks to unlock:
Break Narmer Missions
Break Narmer missions are weekly solo missions available with Kahl in the Drifter’s Camp. Play as Kahl to continue his heroic task of freeing more victims from the Veil and taking Narmer down from the inside!
You can share your feedback on the Break Narmer Missions in our dedicated subforum: https://forums.warframe.com/forum/1795-break-narmer-mission-feedback/
There are three mission types assigned by Daughter that will rotate:
“Sabotage time, Kahl. I’ve located a Veil Factory on the Orb Vallis. It’s crawling with Deacons, so you’ll need to be sneaky. NO GUNS.”
“Chipper needs more Thumper parts, and you need to keep Chipper happy. I’ve found an old Grineer base on Earth. Should have plenty.”
“Kahl, you know how you asked me to let you know when that prison Murex came back? Well, it's back. If you really want to do this, call me.”
Important note on Break Narmer Mission Rotation:
The order of missions is fixed to your progress week to week and resets on a weekly timer. Meaning that regardless of what week it is (and what number of timer resets have hit), you will always be playing in the fixed order based on your mission history. You must complete mission 1 in order to gain access to mission 2, to gain access to mission 3, and so on when the order circles back to mission 1. In other words, the mission reset will always occur at the same time each week, and not when you complete mission 1, 2, or 3.
To echo what we stated in the launch of Update 32: With Veilbreaker comes a weekly approach to the systems introduced in this update. We want a variety of options for players to plan Daily, Weekly, and Evergreen goals.
Note on accessibility option for Veilbreaking:
In order to remove Veils from Narmer victims, you are required to Tap the dedicated button to fill the gauge and release them. As a friendly reminder, there is a ‘Repeated Button Presses’ option in the Accessibility settings that can swap the Tap to Hold if that is preferred!
Break Narmer Missions Known Issue:
There is an issue with being unable to move up with Kahl’s Hellion Jetpack if the jump button has been rebound.
- Current workaround: Reset your binding or make sure your ‘Move Up’ and ‘Jump’ button are set to the same binding in the ‘General Controls’ settings.
Break Narmer Challenges
Additional challenges are also available to complete throughout the week. Completing these challenges rewards a new currency called Stock (more on this below) that can be spent at Chipper’s store.
Each week's Break Narmer mission can be replayed throughout that week for more chances to complete the optional challenges for Stock. Challenges are synced for all players!
New Somachord Songs!
Four new Somarchord Songs are available to unlock by finding Somachord Fragments located throughout the ‘Break Narmer’ missions.
- FINAL STAND
- HOLD THE LINE
- STEEL HORIZON
Since Kahl is not equipped with a scanner of his own, these Fragments can be collected by interacting with them to pick up.
Rank up Kahl’s Garrison
This Syndicate auto-ranks with weekly gameplay progress rather than needing Standing! Unlocking ranks means building up the Garrison with new faces and opportunities.
Stock is the currency used to purchase items in Kahl’s Garrison. Collect them via Break Narmer missions and challenges to spend on the following offerings:
Rank 1: Shelter
Complete the first mission in Kahl’s Garrison to unlock Chipper’s shop.
Unlocked at Rank 2: Encampment
- Access to Chipper in Kahl’s Garrison!
- Styanax Systems Blueprint
- Slaytra Blueprint
Unlocked at Rank 3: Fort
- New Archon Warframe Mods
- Styanax Neuroptics Blueprint
Unlocked at Rank 4: Settlement
- Aegrit Blueprint
- Styanax Chassis Blueprint
Unlocked at Rank 5: Home
1x Archon Shard per Week
- While this is locked behind the highest Rank, we wanted to make sure it was visible as a reward to strive for and plan your Stock spending choices. We want you to be able to stock up your Stock in preparation for when you unlock it if that’s your goal!
- Fog of War Ephemera
- Afentis Blueprint
- Styanax Blueprint
New Archon Warframe Mods
A new collection of Warframe Mods has landed in Chipper’s Offerings in Kahl’s Garrison! They offer an increase of core stats with added effects for elemental damage dealing abilities.
*Stats shown below are all at max rank. These Mods are tradeable!
+55% Ability Duration. Abilities that inflict a Toxin Status Effect will also apply a Corrosive Status Effect.
+45% Ability Range. Abilities that deal Electricity Damage restore +2 Energy/s over 5s.
+440% Health. Status Effects from Abilities that deal Heat Damage will be applied twice.
Please note that we are aware of this not working with some fire abilities e.g. Ember’s Fire Blast, this will be corrected in a future Hotfix/Update.
+275% Energy Max. Enemies killed by Cold Damage have a 10% chance to drop an Energy Orb. Cooldown: 10s.
+30% Ability Strength. Restoring Health with abilities grants +30% Ability Strength for 10s.
- This currently has issues with some abilities that “heal over time” or trigger a heal after the ability is already running, we’ll be fixing the outliers overtime.
Kahl’s Garrison will be present in your Drifter Camp following the completion of the Veilbreaker Quest. Visit Kahl-175 there and refresh his uniform with a variety of customization options. Equipped with Voidshell technology and a variety of Helmet and Attachment options, players can kit him with a unique look that would make his Brothers proud.
Earn more Kahl customizations including Helmets, Eyeguards, Back Armor, Shoulder Plates, and Leg Guards just by ranking up Kahl’s Garrison!
Leg, shoulder, and chest Armor you own can also be equipped on Kahl.
Archon Hunt Changes & Fixes:
As of this Hotfix, the 2nd Archon Hunt is now live for players to attempt! We’re continuing to watch and review feedback around these missions, and are committed to make necessary iterations over the coming weeks.
- Archons now prioritize players instead of summons (eg: Octavia's roller, Titania's Razorflies, Atlas Rumblers, etc) to prevent too egregious aggro CC.
