Titania is the Queen, and Volt is the King of the Plains - at least for me so far. It will probably even out a bit more once I get the Skywing charges up and running. But Razorwinging around with my beastly shotgun-modded Dex Pixia is a sheer joy, and whizzing about on the sweeping inclined planes with Volt never gets old either.
After a couple of deeply immersed sessions getting my head around all the things, I’m REALLY into it now, settling into a rhythm with it, both day and night. Grouping is in a lamentable condition at the moment (it’s all buggy and things aren’t connecting up properly in terms of info and feedback), but solo out of the box it really is tremendous fun, both day and night cycles, and I’m warming to a nice, longish term grind ahead.
I was surprised to find that using the Operator to hunt the little sentient thingies with a “Lure” (which you can find and activate at Grineer camps by night) was very enjoyable. First time I’ve actually enjoyed using Operator mode. And now that I’ve unlocked the Quills (wanted to say Whills lol) I’m really into the idea of powering the little dude up, and considering the Focus trees more deeply.
The Saya quest I thought was really excellently well done btw, they’re getting these quests down to a fine art now, blending story/VO with the basket of mission modes they’ve got.
Mining and Fishing are fun too.
Top tip 1: using Helios as my sentinel got things to start making more sense - as I started scanning I noticed the things to collect.
Top tip 2: for the annoying cache missions, both Helios with Animal Instinct is handy, as well as the method of spiralling inwards from the outside of the circle listening for the cache “singing” sound. Now those missions aren’t so annoying.
Top tip 3: If you’re running a potato, try the new Dynamic Resolution option (under Display), it really smooths out and ups the framerate. I remember now what this is - a guy did a mod for Skyrim using the same technique. Basically it lowers the resolution when you’re whipping the camera round, so it’s pixellated when you don’t notice it, and looks normal when you’ve got the camera still, or are just moving it around to look at things. Very clever trick.
