Ash is great for players looking for a more stealthy approach to combat. Lethal abilities are complemented by powers of distraction.

This is Ash, lethal and elusive.

Ash can remain unseen, but his effects on the battlefield can be felt by all. Keep an eye out, Tenno.

Ash is a fast, maneuverable Warframe that possesses a high degree of survivability in the field. Fleet movement complements deadly tools of assassination, making Ash a perfect balance between killing potency and stealth.

TriviaEdit

  • Ash was originally named Smoke, and before that, simply Ninja.[1] He is still referred to as Ninja internally in the game files.
  • As seen from concept art, Ash was initially slated to be a female Warframe.
  • Ash's special abilities are names of tools and weapons that would commonly be used by a ninja.
  • Ash was the first Warframe that had innate physical weapons associated with his frame, in this case his hidden blades he uses in his Blade Storm ability.

NotesEdit

  • Ash Prime, compared to AshIcon272 Ash:
    • Higher Shields (155 vs. 145)
    • Higher Armor (85 vs. 55)
    • Higher Sprint Speed (1.2 vs. 1.150)
    • Lower Mobility (0.8 vs 0.9)
    • Different Polarities (Madurai PolMadurai PolNaramon Pol vs. Madurai PolMadurai Pol)

TriviaEdit

  • Ash Prime's helmet could be loosely based on the traditional Kabuto Samurai helmet and shows certain aspects of other Samurai Helmets like the oversized chin guard.
  • The ponytail on the Ash Prime helmet is somewhat reminiscent of the ponytail in Ash's original concept art.
    • This "ponytail" was originally intended to be included in his final design, however, cloth physics at the time did not permit it.
  • In the Codex, Ash Prime's arm blades are mounted underneath the wrist; in-game, however, the blades are positioned above his wrists much like the normal Ash.
  • Ash Prime's ability features are energy ribbons that emerge from Ash Prime when he appears out of SmokeScreen130xDark Smoke Screen and when he reaches his destination from Teleport130xDark Teleport.
  • Ash Prime has Orokin writing on his torso that says "Tenno Model 24N - Serial 147H".
  • Ash Prime's Arsenal image shows him holding the VectisPrime Vectis Prime as a lefty. Although this may be unintentional, it could hint to Ash Prime being ambidextrous, hence why he is equally efficient with both arm blades.
  • Players who watched the TennoLive 2018 stream on July 7 2018 on Warframe's official Twitch channel for 30 minutes or attended the event received a free Ash Prime.[1]
    • Due to server issues that prevented players from watching the livestream, DE gave away a free Ash Prime to anybody with a Twitched linked account who logged into Warframe between July 3 and July 10 2018.[2]

MediaEdit

  • Ash Prime in Codex.
  • One of Ash Prime's early helmet designs.

VaultingsEdit

  • On May 24th, 2017, it was announced that Ash Prime would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on May 30th, 2017. Any preexisting components or fully-built frames will remain as is.

Project fierce shadow clones of Ash upon groups of distant enemies. Join the fray using Teleport.
Strength:150 (damage)
Duration:N/A
Range:8 m
Misc:3 (max. marks per enemy)
1 (number of Shadow Clones)

Info
  • Blade Storm requires Ash to have 100 energy and uses 100 energy (regardless of number of targets marked.)
  • Ash instantly enters a state of intense focus as he searches for targets to assassinate. During targeting mode, enemies within 8 meters from Ash that are seen near the aiming reticle become tagged with a death mark. Staring at marked enemies longer or swiping the reticle over them again will add up to 2 additional death marks, signifying more than one potential attack.
    • If a marked enemy moves out of the target acquisition range, then all marks on the target are removed and energy spent marking will be refunded. The amount refunded is equivalent to the amount initially used to apply the mark.
    • If a marked enemy is killed before all of its marks are consumed, then the energy for each unused mark will be refunded.
    • Maximum number of marks per enemy is capped at 3 marks.
      • Marked enemies become highlighted in red and display death mark icons above their heads.
        • Death mark icon color is affected by Ash's chosen Warframe energy color.
      • A counter on the ability icon displays the total amount of death marks that have been applied. The number displayed counts down for every mark removed.
  • When at least 1 enemy is marked, reactivating the ability will spawn 1 Shadow Clone that teleport between and strike all marked enemies. Each strike consumes one mark and performs a Front or Back Finisher which inflicts 150 Front or Back Finisher damage.
    • Melee damage mods do not affect Blade Storm's damage.
    • Strikes from the Shadow Clones add 1 hit per enemy.
    • Strikes from Ash have a chance to add more than one hit per enemy depending on the amount of times he stabs the enemy.
    • Strikes by Ash on marked enemies use the same damage values and behaviors as his Shadow Clones.
  • Targeting mode can be activated, reactivated, and deactivated instantly without interrupting Ash's actions.
    • While in targeting mode, Ash emits black smoke and sees the environment through a monochrome screen overlay.
    • Ash is still able to perform all other functions, such as moving, maneuvering, casting other abilities, and firing or reloading weapons while in targeting mode.
    • If there are no marked enemies, reactivating Blade Storm will simply deactivate targeting mode.
    • Ash cannot enter targeting mode if his Shadow Clones are still attacking marked enemies.
  • Blade Storm hits can damage across the Rift Plane.
  • During targeting mode and teleport strikes, Ash is unable to gain energy from all sources (e.g. Energy Orbs, EnergyVampire130xDark Energy Vampire, Rift Plane energy regeneration, etc).
