Tired of getting a miserable amount of Endo or looking for Ayatan Sculptures? Here’s how to actually start farming it optimally.
Endo is one of the most important resources in Warframe, as it has the primary function of leveling up your mods, which power your Warframe, your weapons, your companions, and more.
Almost every enemy can drop Endo, but usually in a ridiculously small quantity. Fully socketed Ayatan Statues can get you somewhere between 2,500-3,000 Endo, but it’s just not enough, especially when you consider primed mods, which can take nearly 15 thousand Endo on their final upgrade.
There are ways, however, to speed up those drops. Some Warframes are known for their farming capabilities, as they can make enemies drop extra resources when hit with a specific skill.
The star of the show is Nekros with his desecrate ability, and we can optimize him a lot more with a specific melee weapon, the Ripkas. The Ripkas by itself is nothing amazing, but it does have one mod that makes a huge difference, called Amalgam Ripkas True Steel.
The Amalgam Ripkas True Steel mod gives the weapon 100% chance to gore enemies, which is extremely important for farming as Nekros. Nekros’ desecrate ability affects each individual chunk of your enemies, so the more dismemberment, the more loot.
Simply having a Nekros, however, isn’t going to cut it, as we are going for the most optimal strategy possible, which requires group play. There are many variations of this strategy, but almost all of them require a Khora and either a Mag or Nidus.
Khora’s job is simple, as she needs to place a small Strangledome to keep enemies trapped for everyone to melee, while Nidus or Mag need to position either a Larva or Pull inside of the Strangledome.
The recommended maps for doing this grind are the arenas found in Sedna, which give access to the Kela de Thaym bossfight. The Yam node specifically, seems to be the most popular one, due to having some good camping spots.
Each run should rake in something between 2-4 thousand Endo, depending on how optimized everything is. Doing this farm on the Steel Path version of these maps will most likely net you even better results if your damage is on par with the stronger enemies.
