How to complete the harder acts
This is a repeat from week six. You can click here to check that out. However, this is a bit of a lengthy one to get started on. That should go over the gist of what you’d need to get started as well as a proper build to optimize perfect captures.
Earth Bounty Hunter
Completing bounties might seem easy enough for higher level players, but the difficulty in the Plains of Eidolon can increase significantly between tiers 3 and 4 of the bounties. You can actually complete bounty tiers 1 through 4, then take on the Teralyst bounty when day falls unto Cetus.
Of course, if you aren’t comfortable with capturing Eidolons, you can LFG or play in public matchmaking to get your bounties done. Chances are, everyone else is doing the same.
You’ll need to collect relics first. These are common rewards for Void missions and endurance missions. Then, make your way onto the star chart and check the alerts. They are under void fissures. Collect 10 void traces to actually unlock an equipped relic in a mission. Complete this three times and this challenge will reward you 4,500 Nightwave standing.
This one can be made easy if you have the Sunpoint Plasma Drill. Make your way to the top left (Northwest part) of the Orb Vallis. It’s an area right by the Temple of Profit. Mine the red ore veins in that area. You’ll have an increased chance of finding Hesperon, a rare ore resource that counts towards this challenge.
Reaching wave 20 in a defense mission can be a bit of a daunting task. These missions tend to drag longer than they need to. Plus, there is that concern of your objective taking lethal damage. However, the best way to get this done is to head on over to Hydron, Sedna. This is a rather populated node where people naturally like to go up to wave 20 for maximum Warframe and weapon leveling.
This one should come naturally if you play higher level and endurance missions. If you want to get this Nightwave Act done quicker, keep your eyes on the Sortie missions. If there is an Eximus Stronghold mission within the sorties, repeat them. Eximus Units spawn a lot more frequently, adding towards kills for the challenge.
This week’s challenges are mostly straightforward. Complete them before this week ends. These are all easy standing.
