Lore & History

Tale of Telamon

Main article: Leverian#Atlas
View Atlas List
Introduction:
This is Atlas. Hard as stone. Is it any surprise that his story begins with an asteroid?

Temple Telamon had cast a spell on the indentured masses with a song that heralded the coming of a great stone destroyer. A god who would shatter the world and lead them to a great rebirth. The Orokin mocked the cult's off-key singing, their spasmodic dancing, but the spell only grew stronger. Telamon broadcasts would oft-times wedge into controlled channels to spread their doomsday message.

For the suffocated lower castes, the notion of something more powerful than their Orokin masters must have been intoxicating. A brutal Orokin crackdown seemed to be working, until... an asteroid was detected on a collision course with Earth. The Telamons celebrated it as prophecy writ true. Divine intervention. For the first time in living memory, the Orokin showed vulnerability.

It did not matter that the destruction would be total. For the Temple, this was a sign of a new age.

Atlas Shikoro Helmet:

A probe was sent to the asteroid, perhaps seeking proof of divine intervention. It found intervention, though it was anything but divine.

The rock had been fitted with colossal steering thrusters and manning those thrusters, a bevy of well-armed Telamon. Having taken fate to their own hands, they set about a final convulsive dance aboard that rock. Battlecruisers, Orgon missiles, a gale-force of Dax... the Orokin could have resolved this in any number of ways. But their enemy was not the Telamons themselves. It was their ideas. Atlas, alone, was sent.

As he crashed onto that rock, his Shikoro helm greeted the cultists. Note the angled ballistic plating and reinforced neck protection.

He would soon need both.

Tableau of Telamon:

For years, historians felt this 'Tale of Telamon' quite improbable, an artifact of Orokin propaganda-myth.

Then, on our system's outer edge, we found a debris field of small rocks and dust in a lazy elliptical orbit. Upon these rocks, we find the remains of peculiar stone statuary. The petrified figures, clearly Temple members, have been frozen into a tableau of struggle and death.

Or was it, perhaps, a dance? This remarkable find forces us to rethink the entire tale as fact.

Stratum Syandana:

The Stratum Syandana. Reserved and austere, until you turn it over and reveal the glowing hue of the amethyst crystal within.

A breathtaking geode. Imagine its spiralling ribbons as Atlas tore toward the killer asteroid's thrusters. His plan must have been to reorient them and push the rock away from Earth. But, as the story goes, as he neared, the cultists detonated the thruster's footings and sent them careening into space. They were no longer needed. Mass and inertia would carry the rock to its fate.

Atlas was out of options. Or so the Telamons thought.

Tekko Tekko:

The Tekko are, perhaps my favorite pieces in this gallery. Note the intricate, ornate moldings, the complex blades. Quite the contrast from Atlas's otherwise workmanlike appearance.

The beauty and craftsmanship conceal the true purpose of the Tekko, as indentations found in cultist's skulls attest.

I have to wonder what frenzied dance would have been interrupted, or, if the whiplash strikes and jabs of the Tekko might have blended into the crowd's fitful celebration?

Rumblers130xWhite Rumblers:

Before you, a rare sight: two Rumblers, painstakingly recreated from fragments of the aforementioned Tableau.

How these inert and rigid formations are compelled to life by Atlas defies reason. Yet, it is true. Consider the confusion of those Telamons as the very stone they worshipped came to life and set upon them. How could they retaliate against such a thing?

Like sparring with a landslide.

AtlasIcon272 Atlas:

Earth swelled on the horizon, as the cult mocked Atlas with their chorus: "The stone shall shatter all!"

Across the system, every Telamon echoed that final hymn. Children, as far as Neptune, turned their heads from greasy broth and gazed toward Earth. Would that careening stone change... everything? Atlas kneeled down, head and hands pressed to the ground in apparent defeat as the Telamon's hymn grew even louder.

But Atlas was listening, feeling, the way the stone trembled to the hymn's pitch. The faults within the asteroid became vivid to him... and so a new song rose up. Rumblers. Erupting in a god-like rhythm, beating along the faults until Atlas, alone, struck the final, resonant chord.

A tremor forked through the rock until, all at once, the great asteroid exploded, its dust falling as scintillating rain sparking across the atmosphere, and then... gone. The Telamon's song fell silent and children, as far as Neptune, turned away and swirled their spoons in greasy broth.
TelamonDanceOfDeath

Telamon Dance of Death<br>A moment frozen in time, gruesomely magnificent. This harrowing piece was found among a debris field that made Drusus Leverian reconsider legends about the Warframe Atlas.

Temple Telamon was a fanatic cult that believed in the coming of a great stone destroyer whose arrival would signify imminent destruction followed by a new rebirth. The IconOrokinOn Orokin paid no heed to their chants, until the Telamons hijacked an asteroid and sent it on a collision course with Earth.

Rather than sending destructive weapons or Dax soldiers, Atlas, a stone warrior who defied the Telamon's ideals, was dispatched to intercept the asteroid, using Petrify130xWhite Petrify on the Telamon defenders and fashioning Rumblers130xWhite Rumblers from petrified remains of their tableau. Atlas then delivered a Landslide130xWhite Landslide that reverberated into the rock, shattering the asteroid and dissolving it into nothing, silencing the Telamon's hymns.

Notes

Trivia

  • In Greek mythology, Atlas was the Titan who held up the sky, typically portrayed carrying a large celestial sphere upon his shoulders. Other aspects of Atlas' design are similarly inspired by Greek myth.
    • Atlas' Petrify130xWhite Petrify ability is a tribute to the Gorgon Medusa through which the Titan met his demise. The hero Perseus, who slew Medusa, would use her severed head to turn many of his adversaries to stone, including Atlas who was transformed into a range of mountains.
    • Atlas' passive immunity to knockdowns while grounded is inspired by the giant Antaeus who would challenge opponents to wrestling matches and was invincible as long as he was in contact with the ground.
  • Atlas was originally developed under the name Brawler and is still referred to as such internally in the game files.
  • Not counting the Aura slot, Atlas is the first non-prime Warframe to start out with three polarized mod slots.
  • Atlas is the second Warframe to not include an alternate helmet on initial release, following OberonIcon272 Oberon.
  • Atlas' appearance seems to be inspired by a chivalrous knight with a greathelm.
  • Though Atlas' main blueprint is obtained from The Jordas Precept quest, he isn't actually quest-driven, as the quest story line doesn't directly involve him.
  • Atlas is the only Warframe whose component blueprints are acquired from Archwing mission, and in turn the Archwing boss, Jordas Golem.
  • Atlas is the first Warframe to have an official signature weapon, Tekko Tekko.
  • As an April Fool's joke, Digital Extremes announced a cross-over with Path of Exile titled: "Path of Warframe: The Quest for the Average Neck". The key art featured Atlas with Path of Exile's Templar.[1]
  • Rumblers130xWhite Rumblers can attack/punch Roller floofs in Dog Days scene in the Captura.

Passive

Wielding explosive power and incredible stamina, AtlasIcon272 Atlas strengthens his insurmountable durability through battle. Atlas possesses various passive mechanics highlighted in the tabs below:

Strong as the mountain, Atlas is immune to Knockdown b Knockdown while in contact with the ground.

  • Knockdown immunity does not apply while in the air.
  • Does not apply to pushback effects.
  • Does not prevent the recoiling effect from firing powerful Archguns such as Corvas Corvas, Velocitus Velocitus, and Larkspur Larkspur in non-Archwing missions.

Rubble is a pickup item unique to Atlas that drops from petrified enemies and Rumblers130xWhite Rumblers on death. Rubble restores Health to Atlas if he is injured; if Atlas is at full health, Rubble instead grants additional Armor that decays over time.

AtlasRubblePickup

A piece of Rubble

  • Each petrified enemy and each Rumbler will drop 1 piece of Rubble that restores 50 health or provides 50 armor. Rubble will remain on the ground for 30 seconds before crumbling away if left untouched.
    • Enemies petrified by Mod TT 20px Path of Statues' rock trail, Petrify's flash, and the summoning of Rumblers are eligible to drop Rubble.
    • Petrified enemies killed by Landslide130xWhite Landslide grant 75 health or armor from their dropped Rubble.
    • Rumblers that sustain damage to their health will grant less health points or bonus armor from their dropped Rubble.
    • Rubble will not grant armor if at least 1 health point is missing from Atlas' maximum health pool. Excess health points gained will not overflow into bonus armor points.
  • Rubble armor is displayed in a circular gauge on the HUD above the ability icons.
    • The current number of bonus armor is shown below the gauge and will visibly subtract as bonus armor decays or add as Atlas picks up new Rubble.
    • Armor bonus is capped at 1,500 points.
    • Bonus armor decays at a rate of 5 armor points per second.
    • Upon picking up Rubble to gain bonus armor, bonus armor decay is paused for 2 seconds. Picking up Rubble to restore health points will not pause armor decay.
    • Bonus armor will not be lost if the player falls out of bounds, but will be lost in the event of a host migration.
    • The stone icon in the center of the gauge will enlarge or shrink depending on the amount of bonus armor stored. At 0 bonus armor, it remains a pebble; at 1,500 bonus armor, it becomes a large boulder.
    • Rock formations will appear on Atlas' body as he accumulates bonus armor.
  • Rubble pickup can be Mod TT 20px vacuumed by Sentinels or the Warframe's innate vacuum radius, or Mod TT 20px fetched by Companions.
  • Rubble pickups resemble a piece of stone encased in a translucent layer of reflective rock-shaped metal, which is tinted in Atlas' chosen Warframe energy color.
  • Rubble pickups spawned when a petrified enemy or Rumbler dies while airborne will fall to the ground.

Patch History

Update 36.0 (2024-06-18)

Atlas Petrify Changes

Atlas’ Petrify interacts with Freezing and Resistance values. As such, he’s received a few changes to clarify and enhance the mechanics of his ability.

  • All enemies caught within the cone are now instantly turned to stone. Petrified enemies have their Damage type modifiers increased by +50% (does not scale with Mods).
    • Added a “Damage Vulnerability” stat to Petrify to communicate this mechanic.
    • Petrifying Frozen enemies will retain the Frozen Status Effect, but the petrification will override the enemy visually.

Hotfix 35.0.1 (2023-12-13)

  • Fixed a script error in Atlas’ Rumbler ability.

Update 34.0 (2023-10-18)

Base vs Final Stats in Modding - Health / Energy / Shield / Armor Stat Overhaul

If you’ve spent any time invested in the deeper nuances of Modding, you may be familiar with “Warframe Math” - math that upon first glance doesn’t really make sense, but once you learn the inner workings of the game, it all comes together. While we can appreciate the value that complex systems offer to a certain subsect of players, there are other aspects of the game that should have clear and understandable outcomes. Namely: Shield, Health, Energy, and Armor Modding.

Pop quiz: what is 300 + 440%? If you answered 740, you may just be an Excalibur player.

Vitality (+440% Heath), Redirection (+440% Shields), Flow (+150% Energy), and Steel Fiber (+110% Armor) come with large modifier values that don’t seem to match their outcome in-game. This is because these Mods apply their multiplier to the base stats of the Warframe - i.e., the stats you have at Rank 0. In the Excalibur example, a Rank 30 Excalibur’s Health stat of 300 earns an additional 440 Health from max rank Vitality (+440% Heath) since it applies to his base rank Health stat of 100, resulting in 740 total health.

In this update, we have removed this obfuscation by having Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor Mods apply to the stats of Warframes at their current rank. Continuing our Excalibur example, instead of Vitality always applying to Excalibur’s base rank 100 Health, it would apply to his Health stat based on his rank - namely, the stat you can actually see in your Arsenal. If your Excalibur were Rank 30, his Health stat would be 300, which means Vitality’s multiplier would be calculated off of 300.

With previous Health and Mod values, additional adjustments are needed to make this revision work while maintaining game balance. By only changing where the multiplier applies, a Rank 30 Excalibur would receive an extra 1,320 Health from max rank Vitality, resulting in a total health stat of 1,600. This outcome is a significant buff, which is not the intention of this system change.

To remedy this, we approached this problem in two ways:

1 - We reduced the overall multiplier for Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor Mods.
Since these now affect Max Rank Warframe stats, these Mods need to scale differently to maintain the status quo. Additionally, we wanted these new values to be as clear and understandable to all players as possible! Here are a few examples of these value changes:

  • Vitality: Reduced from +440% to +100% Health
  • Redirection: Reduced from +440% to +100% Shield Capacity
  • Steel Fiber: Reduced from +110% to +100% Armor
  • Flow: Reduced from +150% to +100% Energy Max

Note: These are not all of the Mods affected by this change. We share the comprehensive list further down in this section of the update notes.

Doing some quick math, this means that a Rank 30 Excalibur (300 Health) with a reworked Vitality Mod (+100% Health, applied to the final Health stat) would receive 300 extra Health, for a total of 600. That, in contrast, is a nerf, which we also don’t want to do.

So, our next step:

2 - We adjusted Warframe Health, Shield, Energy, and Armor values to keep the end result of the revised Mods as close to the original values as possible.

With this change, Excalibur’s Rank 30 Health stat is 370. With +100% Health from a max Vitality Mod, his resulting Health stat would be 740, which matches what it was originally.

While this path to the same result may seem a little complicated, the outcome matches our intention: we want players to be able to look at their Health, Shield, and Armor Mods, and be able to understand how they affect the stats they see in their Arsenal.

In addition to everything above, we also increased the base stat values for Warframes so that these revised Mods offer similar value for lower-ranked Frames. To do so, we reduced the amount of Health/Shield/Energy that Warframes earn per rank in half, and transferred the sum of that value to their base stats.

For Armor, this is the one stat that does not increase with your Warframe’s level (with some exceptions). Armor values across the board have been slightly increased to compensate for the Mod changes.

Not to beat a dead Kaithe, but Mods will now be applying to the Max Rank stat instead of the Base Rank. You may look at these numbers and think “nerf” or “buff” depending, but the outcome is that total Modded values are the same, if not a little higher in some cases.

Warframe Stat Changes:

ATLAS
Health: Base Rank - 270 (from 100) / Max Rank - 370 (from 300)
Shields: Base Rank - 270 (from 100) / Max Rank - 370 (from 300)
Armor: Base Rank - 475 (from 450)
Energy: Base Rank - 175 (from 150) / Max Rank - 225 (from 225)

ATLAS PRIME
Health: Base Rank - 550 (from 175) / Max Rank - 650 (from 525)
Shields: Base Rank - 455 (from 150) / Max Rank - 555 (from 450)
Armor: Base Rank - 500 (from 475)
Energy: Base Rank - 215 (from 175) / Max Rank - 265 (from 263)

While there may be significant changes to Warframe Stats and Mod values as a part of this overhaul, the end result is that your Builds should mostly stay the same. The key difference is the added clarity of what your Health / Shield / Energy / Armor Mods do in your Upgrade screens!

Certain Warframe Abilities and Exalted weapons will now reset the Melee Combo Counter only if the Xoris is being used.

  • Atlas Landslide

Warframe Looting Ability Changes

Warframe Loot Abilities will again be able to yield multiple-drops from already looted corpses. A single enemy can be looted by at most one Ability from each group - which is how it worked before, this just clarifies it. Warframe Looting Abilities have been split into separate functionality groups for clarity:

  1. Loot while alive: Ivara
  2. Loot petrified: Atlas
  3. Loot on death: Wukong, Khora, Hydroid. An enemy can only be killed once, they can’t ‘die’ multiple times.
  4. Loot corpse: Nekros, Chesa

These changes stem from a bigger conversation that was addressed yesterday regarding not providing closure on the Loot Frame changes from The Jovian Concord. All the information can be found here: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1131506-the-mod-booster-and-free-to-play/
