Orokin Ducats are a currency required for purchasing items sold by Baro Ki'Teer, such as special Mods, or exclusive Weapons. In addition they are used for the final Conclave sacrifice. They are also used to sell one orbiter decoration on Iron Wake. They are also required to craft Paracesis, it is the only weapon requiring it so far.
Ducats can only be acquired by selling Prime blueprints, weapon parts and crafted Warframe components at the Void Trader's Kiosks found in the Relays. These Prime parts and blueprints, in turn, are acquired from Void Relics, or from trading with other players. Note that while accessing Baro Ki'Teer is time limited, the Void Trader's Kiosks can be accessed at any time.
The ducats value depends on the item's rarity as it appears on the Void Relics that they originate from. Typically, common (bronze) items are worth 15 Ducats, uncommon (silver) items 45, and the rare (gold) ones sell for 100 Ducats. An exception is made for items that had a higher rarity on Relics that were placed in the Prime Vault, but remain available on newer relics at a lower rarity. To make up for the loss in rarity and thus value, such items are worth 25 and 65 Ducats, respectively.
Players cannot directly trade Ducats to other players, but Prime blueprints and parts can be traded and then exchanged for Ducats.
- Ducats are named after a real life currency made of gold or silver used in medieval times and up until the 20th century.
- Baro also refers to them as "Orokin ducats" in his introduction, meaning that the Orokin likely used the ducats as a form of currency during their time.
- In Update 15.8 Ducats were represented as Forma when seen in the inventory menu. Ducats are now displayed in your currency bar.
