Conclave is a neutral Syndicate led by the Conclave Master, Teshin. Teshin resides within the Conclave Hall of each Relay. He is the one responsible for the management of the Conclave PvP System, providing incentives through various rewards that can be earned through Conclave battles.
As of Hotfix 18.2.3, sigils are no longer required to increase Conclave Standing, and the Conclave sigils can be worn in PvE mode as a cosmetic attachment.
Conclave missions can be accessed using the Conclave console located on the right of the Navigation in the Orbiter, as well as the Conclave enclave in the Relay. The player's loadout will be automatically switched to their Conclave loadout upon entering a Conclave mission.
First, simply launch Warframe to bring up the Warframe Launcher and click on the Settings Gear in the top right:
From here click on the Start Server button under the new Dedicated Server tab:
From there you’ll be prompted to select the Conclave mode you wish to host, along with the options to restrict access to your Clan/Alliance, the option to host a VARIANT mode, as well as the option to include your own personalized MOTD seen when players enter your server:
Clicking 'Ok' will then launch a dedicated server on your machine! A new command window will appear which will output all of the log details for your brand spanking new server. You’ll be able to track how many players have joined, what maps are currently being run, along with a plethora of other backend info from here:
As of The Silver Grove Update, Conclave now has Dedicated Servers (on PC) with the intention to provide a more robust and optimized matchmaking environment in PvP. Due to networking architecture of consoles, they will not have Dedicated Servers.
Leaderboards for Dedicated Servers are found here.
A free-for-all game mode that requires the Tenno to battle each other and retrieve their Oro, a red orb entity that appears when a Tenno is defeated. The gameplay is similar to the Kill Confirm variant of Deathmatch, and the round is completed when one player has retrieved 25 Oros, or obtains the most Oro after 10 minutes has passed.
In its variant mode, each Tenno is equipped with a modified Opticor that takes 1 second to charge and can kill an opponent in one shot. However, all other weapons are disabled, as are Warframe abilities, passives, and mods.
This game mode allows four Tenno to ally with each other against another group of four Tenno in an Annihilation game mode. Each team must retrieve the Oro of the opposing team to gain a point. The opponent team members are highlighted in red outline. The match ends when one of the team has retrieved 50 Oro or obtains the most Oro after 10 minutes has passed.
It has a winter-themed variant mode, called Snowday Showdown, a frosty skirmish of snowballs and minty melee mayhem. Each Tenno equips two weapons, Solstice Spheres (a.k.a Snowballs), a throwing weapon similar to Kunai, with each ball dealing 50 damage, unlimited ammunition, and they fire in an arc similar to Kunai and have travel time, making them impractical for long range combat. In addition, the Tenno receive a melee weapon, the Solstice Scythe, shaped like the Spearmint Scythe, dealing 50 damage. Both weapons proc cold, slowing opponents for 1 second. Warframes can not use their passives, abilities or mods during this mode. The stage will have snowfall and will be partly covered by snow with snowmen as stage decorations in some areas.
A simple Capture the Flag-style game mode in which two teams of four Tenno (for a total of eight players) must steal the Cephalon from the opponents base and bring it to their own in order to score points. The match ends when one team has captured the opponent's Cephalon 5 times or has the most captured Cephalons after 10 minutes has passed.
Lunaro is an ancient Tenno sport, where two teams try to take control of the 'Lunaro' ball with Arcatas to score a goal. This game mode does not require weaponry and instead demands teamwork and coordinated plays to achieve victory for the team. The match ends when one team has scored 20 points or has the most points after 6 minutes has passed (split in between two quarters of 3 minutes).
Gunfire renders players visible on the minimap for 5 seconds if the weapon fired is not silent.
Staggers are replaced with the Impair status effect, which disables jumping and slows movement speed for a duration of 2 seconds. After being impaired, players become immune to further impairment for 2 seconds.
This 2-second grace period also applies to knockdowns.
Slam attacks on quick melee have AoE damage & can knockdown opponents.
"Light weapons" such as Longswords, Fists, Daggers, etc have a smaller knockdown radius ~2m while "Heavy weapons" such as Hammers, Heavy Blades have ~4-5m.
Blocking absorbs attacks in a 90-degree arc in front of the player.
All Conclave melee stances (other stances are disallowed) have a combo containing a pause. In each case, the attack before the pause inflicts the aforementioned Impair status effect. The attack following the pause deals double damage.
Fist, Claw and Sparring weapons are the only melee weapons that inflict knockdown with slide attacks.
Thrown melee weapons' explode-in-midair effect has a reduced radius and does not deal bonus damage.
Recruit Conditioning ensures players new to the Conclave only play matches with other relatively inexperienced Tenno. The option can be toggled on or off in the Conclave console on the Landing Craft, and is only available to players below Tempest rank in the Conclave syndicate.
Players with Recruit Conditioning enabled will only be matched with each-other, and players at Mastery Rank 0 to 2 have the option enabled by default. Once a player reaches Tempest rank in the Conclave syndicate, however, the option is permanently disabled (and there is no way to reduce a player's rank).
Additionally, all rare (gold-trimmed) mods are disabled in Recruit Conditioning.
Conclave only allows certain Warframes and weapons to ensure balance is fair and even. Conclave mods can be obtained from Teshin with Standing and from completing a Conclave match. Some of these mods can also be used in PvE and are dropped by Sentients or bought with Cred in Nightwave. Weapon variants such as Prime and MK-1, are generally permitted.
Standing from Challenges is Bonus Standing and does not count against your Daily Standing Capacity. There are up to eight Challenges every day, two for each Conclave Mission Type. Any challenge with 6000 standings reward is given a prefix 'Focused'. Challenge Missions reset daily at 7:15 PM GMT instead of the standard daily reset (12:00 AM GMT).
Weekly Missions were introduced in Update 18.0. These missions will always be the same:
Match Won: Win 6 matches of any game type.
Match Complete: Complete 20 matches of any game type.
Conditioning: Complete 10 Daily Challenges.
Upon completing all three, an inbox message from Teshin will be received, containing 10 Rare Resources of one type, a Stance mod, 100,000100,000, and 50,00050,000. These challenges can only be completed once a week, resetting on Friday, 12:00 AM GMT.
Fixed crash in Conclave due to the “x was killed by x” message.
Fixed Excalibur’s Ion Helmet appearing as his default in the Conclave Arsenal after being equipped in the co-op Arsenal. This also fixed being unable to equip the Ion helmet while in the Conclave Arsenal.
Alongside the original 6 primary Syndicates, you can now view your Cetus, Fortuna, and Miscellaneous (Conclave, Simaris) Standing! However, the original primary Syndicates will appear hidden if you have never met them in the Relay, and will reappear after talking to them once.
The previous Mainline update of Chimera 23.10.0 included a sneaky bug that removed falloff damage from the Arca Plasmor and the Shwaak Prism. The Arsenal continued to state the always present falloff (10.0 - 20.0) but it wasn’t truly applying. We have fixed this bug, which resulted in adding falloff damage back to the Arca Plasmor and Shwaak Prism, and thus returned it to its original falloff state prior to Update 23.10.0. This also fixes the Conclave Arsenal displaying the incorrect falloff damage for the Arca Plasmor.
Fixed misangled pause Menu when attempting to invite another player to a current Conclave match.
Fixed the Harpak doing more damage than depicted in the Conclave Arsenal.

To host a dedicated server, click Settings (the gear cog) in your Launcher and select ‘Start Server’. This will give you the option on which game mode to host, a ‘Clan only’ hosting option, and to insert a custom MOTD.
