Ember is a nightmare for light-armored targets. Ember can super-heat the air which opens up surprising crowd-control possibilities.

This is Ember, destructive and deadly.

Ember's presence on the battlefield is devastating. Mind the heat, Tenno.

Release Date: October 25th, 2012

Radiant starfire light our worlds ablaze. Igneous as the burning sun, Ember's fiery rage engulfs her foes and scatters their cinders in the solar wind. Empress of elemental flame, scorch the land with her wildfires. Control her fury or fuel the heat to unleash destructive incineration, leaving charred corpses and ashes adrift in her scarlet sea. Ember's flame first sparked in Vanilla and reignited in Update 26.0 (2019-10-31): The Old Blood.


Ember's main blueprint can be purchased from the Market. Ember's component blueprints are acquired from General Sargas Ruk (Tethys, Saturn).

All drop rates data is obtained from DE's official drop tables. See Mission Rewards#Standard Missions for definitions on reward table rotations. Drop chances are rounded to two decimal places, following the official drop tables repository.
Expected means a player can expect to obtain at least one of a drop every N attempts on average.
Nearly Guaranteed refers to the total number of attempts a player needs to obtain a 1 in 10^2,3, and 4 probability not to have recieved a single drop (99%, 99.9%, and 99.99% probability to have received at least one drop).
The combined probability of multiple drops is 1 - ((1-A%) * (1-B%) * ...) (add drops in same rotation)

  • Ember is the fourth Frame to have a Prime, after ExcaliburIcon272.png Excalibur, FrostIcon272.png Frost, and MagIcon272.png Mag.
  • As seen from concept art and beta game footage, Ember was originally male. Ember was changed to a female in Update 5.3 (2013-01-10).
  • Ember is based around the Phoenix and Vermilion firebirds as can be seen by the naming of the helmets and deluxe skin, and the way the feet are designed like bird claws.
  • Ember’s Neuroptics is a requisite ingredient for ChromaIcon272.png Chroma’s Neuroptics.

Ember Prime is Vaulted.
The Void Relics for this item have been removed from the drop tables and do not drop during gameplay at this time. Vaulted Void Relics already contained in player inventories are not affected and can still be either opened or traded between players.
Three figures waited behind a simple table. Their attention on a single chair, bathed in light. An old woman's voice from the shadow: 'Send her in'. Across the room a security officer, stern and plain, opened the door. The outline of a young woman appeared at the door. She hesitated, but only for an instant, then crossed the room and sat.

There was a gasp as the light hit her face. Her right eye was bright and blinking, but her left was a greasy slit. Her skin had been burned moon-white. Her mouth was a sagging gash without lips or expression. Her military beret was pulled snug over a scarred and hairless scalp.

The old voice: 'Your name is Kaleen.' Kaleen nodded. 'You were the principal investigator of the Zariman?' Kaleen's voice was a jagged whisper, a rigid face. 'Yes.'

Kaleen coughed, straightened: 'The Zariman was lost making the fold from Saturn to the Outer gates. Mechanical failure. I notified families and filled a report with the inspectors. Nothing ever returns from the fold, so I closed the case.'

'But you reopened the case, days later.'

'I didn't believe it myself until I stepped aboard the ship. It was completely intact, full environmental, as if it had never left.'

'And the crew was gone.'

'Not exactly.' Kaleen hesitated. 'We thought it was empty but we began to find...' Her face twitched at remembered pain, 'We began to find children hiding in the ship.'

'And that is when you violated procedure?'

Kaleen bowed her head, a tear welling in her sightless eye. 'They were children. They were afraid. They needed comfort.'

'So you broke quarantine and this happened to you.'

There was silence as Kaleen touched her face, 'So what have you done with them?'

The old woman gestured for the officer to take Kaleen away. The meeting was over. When Kaleen reached the door she twisted out of his grip and shot back, 'Why would you do that? Why did you put children on a military ship?'

'We didn't. That would violate procedure.'
Ember Prime offers the same potential for wanton destruction as Ember but provides unique mod polarities, allowing for greater customization.

  • Ember Prime, compared to EmberIcon272.png Ember:
    • Higher Shields (125/375 vs. 100/300)
    • Higher Armor (150 vs. 125)
    • Different Polarities (Madurai Pol.svgVazarin Pol.svg vs. Naramon Pol.svgNaramon Pol.svg)
  • As a Prime Warframe, Ember Prime possesses a special passive ability where contact with an Orokin Void Death Orb will make them release an energy pulse that grants 250 Energy to all nearby allies. This effect can only occur once per Death Orb, and can occur even if the Death Orb has been previously destroyed.
  • Ember Prime is the first primed frame to come with only 2 polarized slots, all others come with 3.
    • Possesses a Madurai Pol.svg and a Vazarin Pol.svg polarity, compared to Ember's double Naramon Pol.svg. Due to the entirely differing base polarities, builds on Ember may not transition as well to her Prime variant without sufficient use of Forma.


  • The golden protrusions on Ember Prime's shoulders are considered customizable Armor parts, and will be removed if any other arm plates are used.
  • During Archwing missions, the particle effects of Ember Prime's default helmet may disjoint from the helmet if the player is moving fast enough.
  • As of Update 15.11 (2015-01-21), Ember Prime is now the fifth Prime Warframe to have a stat boost over the original, having 125 shield and armor as opposed to the 100 of the original Ember.
  • Prior to Update 26.0 (2019-10-31), the debris left behind from a World On Fire explosion was golden, as opposed to the regular debris found on Embers default variant.
  • In Primetime #124, [DE]Megan stated that her all-time favorite Warframe is Ember Prime.

  • Ember launches a fiery projectile that inflicts 150 / 275 / 300 / 400 DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage on impact with a 100% status chance. The projectile also inflicts 50 / 100 / 125 / 150 DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage in a 2 meter area of effect around the target with a 50% status chance.
    • All damage is affected by Ability Strength, TheoremDemulcent64x.png Theorem Demulcent, and ArcaneArachne64x.png Arcane Arachne.
    • The blast radius is affected by Ability Range.
    • The combo window is affected by Ability Duration
    • Area damage affects the initial target, does not decrease with distance, and can also perform headshots.
    • The Heat status procs deal 50% of initial damage on that target per tick.
    • The area damage on initial target can trigger a second heat status proc, for 50% of the area damage hit per tick.
  • Enemies affected by a DmgFireSmall64.png Heat proc take 2x damage from Fireball.
  • Casting another Fireball within the combo window multiplies both the initial damage and the DoT by the combo number, doubles the combo counter (with a maximum of 8x) and resets the combo window.
  • Fireball can be charged before launch.
    • Charging Fireball increases its damage by 100 - 500%, in addition to increasing the range to 2.4 meters.
      • Damage increase is affected by Immolation130xDark.png Immolation's heat level, and charge level, but not Ability Strength.
      • Damage increase is additive to combo level, and is shown when charging Fireball while above a 2x combo.
    • A charge circle will be displayed when charging, showing the progress of the charge.
    • A full charge takes 2.5 seconds.
      • Charge rate is affected by mods that increase casting speed (e.g. Mod TT 20px.png Natural Talent). The charge rate can be reduced to a minimum cap of 1.5 seconds.
  • Fireball may be cast multiple times on the same target, with cast stacking its damage over time.
  • Projectile has flight time and will continue to travel until it hits a solid object or enemy.
  • Ability Synergy:
    • Each cast of Fireball increases Immolation130xDark.png Immolation's heat generation by 1% per second.
    • Immolation reduces Fireball's charge rate based on the amount of heat stored.
  • Will not disrupt Shade's cloak.
  • Casting Fireball is a One-Handed Action that allows the player to perform attacks, movement and parkour Maneuvers.
  • Has a delay of 0.5 seconds between uses.

Main article: Fireball Frenzy

Fireball Frenzy is a Warframe Augment Mod for EmberIcon272.png Ember that allows Fireball130xDark.png Fireball to, instead of charging, be held on cast, creating a wave of energy traveling outward from the user that temporarily grants the caster and nearby allies additional DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage to all attacks.

Rank DmgFireSmall64.png Heat Damage Duration Range Cost
0 50% 28s 15m 6
1 65% 32s 15m 7
2 80% 36s 15m 8
3 100% 40s 15m 9

Tips & Tricks
  • Can be used as a cheap form of crowd control.
  • Modding for high efficiency through the use of Mod TT 20px.png Fleeting Expertise can allow for this ability to be spammed, quickly building up the combo multiplier and damage over time.

Main article: Immolation (edit)
ImmolationModx256.png Immolation130xWhite.png
Protect Ember with flame armor that burns stronger over time, consuming energy once its meter is at full strength. Cast again to extinguish the flame.

Energy Drain at Max Heat: (10 + 0.5t) s-1
t = time at max heat in seconds

Strength:10-50 / 20-65 / 30-75 / 40-85 % (damage reduction)
Misc:90% (damage reduction cap)
0.5%/s (heat generation per second)
+1%/s (heat generation rate bonus from Fireball)
-2%/s (heat generation rate reduction from Fire Blast)
-50% (total heat removal from Fire Blast)
+3%/s (heat generation rate bonus from Inferno)

  • Ember surrounds herself in a swirling torrent of protective flame that burns stronger with each moment. While immolated, a thermometer appears above the ability icons, gradually rising in temperature. Ember gains 10% / 20% / 30% / 40% damage reduction on cast displayed as a percent (%) next to the thermometer, which scales up to 50% / 65% / 75% / 85% damage reduction at maximum heat. Press the ability key (default 2 ) again to deactivate this ability, expending all stored heat instantly.
    • Damage reduction is affected by Ability Strength, and is capped at 50-90%, achievable with a 25% increase in Ability Strength.
      • Damage reduction (DR) is related to the current percent heat (H) by the following formula:
        DR = H × Min(0.90,0.85 × (1 + Ability Strength)) + (1 - H) × Min(0.50,0.40 × (1 + Ability Strength))
      • E.g., with a max rank Mod TT 20px.png Intensify and 75% heat Ember's damage reduction would be:
      0.75 × Min(0.90,0.85 × (1 + 0.3)) + (1 - 0.75) × Min(0.50,0.40 × (1 + 0.3)) =
      0.75 × Min(0.90,1.105) + (0.25) × Min(0.50,0.52) =
      0.75 × 0.9 + (0.25) × 0.5 =
      0.8 (80% damage reduction)
    • At maximum heat, Ember drains 10 energy per second, which increases by an additional 0.5 energy per second to sustain Immolation.
  • Ability Synergy:
    • Immolation's heat generation is affected by her abilities:
      • The following values refer to how full the heat bar is, i.e. 0% means the bar is empty and 100% means it is full; these values are not referring to the damage reduction displayed to the left of the bar.
      • The bar passively fills at a rate of 0.5% per second.
      • Each cast of Fireball130xDark.png Fireball increases the rate of heat generation by 1% per second.
      • Each cast of FireBlast130xDark.png Fire Blast decreases the rate of heat generation by 2% per second, while also removing 50% heat.
      • Each cast of Inferno130xDark.png Inferno increases the rate of heat generation by 3% per second.
      • Heat generation is not affected by mods.
      • E.g. after casting Fireball three times, Fire Blast once, and Inferno once, Ember would be gaining 0.5% + (1% × 3) - 2% + 3% = 4.5% heat per second, and the heat bar would take 22.2 seconds to completely fill.
    • Immolation reduces Fireball's charge rate and increases the charged version's damage based on the amount of heat stored.
    • Fire Blast's enemy armor reduction scales linearly with Immolation's heat level, with 0 percent heat resulting in the minimum value being removed and 100 percent heat resulting in the maximum.
    • Inferno gains bonus damage in percent (%) equal to the current Immolation heat level.

Main article: Immolated Radiance

Immolated Radiance is a Warframe Augment Mod for EmberIcon272.png Ember that allows Immolation130xDark.png Immolation to affect friendly players within affinity range, reducing incoming damage.

Rank Shared Damage Reduction Cost
0 +20% 6
1 +30% 7
2 +40% 8
3 +50% 9

Tips & Tricks
  • When at max heat quickly cast Fire Blast in order to negate the energy drain for being at full heat.
  • In order to quickly build up Ember's heat (and the damage reduction that comes along with it) cast Inferno while there are no enemies in rage, increasing heat generation for zero energy cost.
  • Only 105.8% Strength is needed to reach 90% damage reduction. This is nearly met by having a single enemy affected by a DmgFireSmall64.png Heat proc within Conflagration's range, providing +5% Strength.

Main article: Fire Blast (edit)
FireBlastModx256.png FireBlast130xWhite.png
Fire Blast
Slam the ground to create a wave of incinerating plasma that knocks back enemies and strips their armor.
Strength:66 / 100 / 141 / 200 (DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage)
Range:25 m (wave radius)
Misc:100% (DmgFireSmall64.png Heat status chance)
50-100% (armor reduction)
-2%/s (heat generation rate reduction for Immolation)
-50% (total heat removal for Immolation)
Subsumable to Helminth

  • Ember slams the ground, creating a wave of fire that expands outwards to a radius of 25 meters. Enemies in direct line of sight of Ember and within range are dealt 66 / 100 / 141 / 200 DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage with a 100% status chance, have their Armor permanently reduced by 50% - 100%, and suffer knockdown and are violently pushed back.
    • Damage and armor reduction are affected by Ability Strength, and armor reduction is capped at 50-100%.
    • Wave radius is affected by Ability Range.
    • The armor reduction affects enemies' current armor and stacks with multiple casts, e.g. two casts at minimum heat (50% armor reduction) will reduce enemies armor to 25%.
  • Ability Synergy:
    • Each cast of Fire Blast decreases Immolation130xDark.png Immolation's rate of heat generation by 2% per second, while also removing 50% heat.
    • Fire Blast's enemy armor reduction scales linearly with Immolation's heat level, with 0 percent heat resulting in the minimum value being removed and 100 percent heat resulting in the maximum.
  • Has a cast delay of about 0.7 seconds.
  • Subsuming Ember to the Helminth will offer Fire Blast and its augments to be used by other Warframes.
    • Damage and armor reduction of Subsumed Fire Blast are affected by Ability Strength, while the wave radius is affected by Ability Range.
    • Armor reduction per cast is capped at 75% of enemies' current armor, achievable with Ability Strength of 100% at max ability rank.
    • Number of casts required to fully strip armour via Subsumed Fire Blast depends on enemy armour level. When enemy armour value reaches below 1, armour will be fully stripped as a result. For example, a level 60 Napalm with 3,189.24 armour, afflicted by 6 Subsumed Fire Blasts at 100% power strength, and ignoring the armour strip from a DmgFireSmall64.png Heat status effect, will have its armour reduced to 3,189.24 × (1 - 0.75)6 = 0.7786. This value rounds down to 0, resulting in the Napalm being fully stripped of armour.

Tips & Tricks
  • If using this in conjunction with Inferno to strip armor, cast Inferno first, so that it gets the benefits from high heat, then cast Fire Blast to strip enemy armor, slowing Ember's heat generation.
  • Cast when at max heat in order to prevent Immolate from draining Energy.

  • Ember summons fiery meteorites to descend from above, crashing into all seen enemies within 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 meters. Enemies receive 1000 / 1500 / 2000 / 2500 DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact and DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage on hit, becoming surrounded by a ring of fire for 7 / 10 / 12 / 15 seconds which grows to a radius of 5m, and deals 200 - 400 / 350 - 500 / 300 - 600 / 350 - 700 DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage per second. Other enemies coming into range of the rings are also set ablaze and inflicted with DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage and proc.
  • Inferno costs 0 energy to cast. If enemies are within range, it consumes 10 energy per enemy. Energy is consumed for at most 10 targets, for a total of 100 energy.
  • Inferno targets all enemies on-screen within range, even if only partially visible.
    • Targeting follows camera direction, meaning it is possible to target enemies behind Ember if the camera is facing that way.
    • Targets all types of enemies (e.g., mining machines, cameras, and turrets) excluding Void Laser Traps and Void Death Orbs.
  • Damage from multiple casts does stack.
  • Ability Synergy:
    • Inferno raises Immolation130xDark.png Immolation's heat generation by 3% per second per cast.
    • Inferno gains bonus damage in percent (%) equal to the current heat level, dealing double damage at max heat.
  • Can be cast without any targets on screen.

Main article: Exothermic

Exothermic is a Warframe Augment Mod for EmberIcon272.png Ember that gives enemies affected by Inferno130xDark.png Inferno a chance to drop energy orbs when killed.

Rank Orb Drop Chance Cost
0 5% 6
1 7.5% 7
2 10% 8
3 15% 9

Tips & Tricks
  • If there are no enemies nearby casting Inferno will cost no energy, but will still increase the rate of heat generation, allowing you to reach max heat quickly.
  • If you wish to build up heat quickly equipping Fleeting Expertise can be a good idea, as it will allow you to cast Inferno more often. Conversely, if you wish to build heat more slowly equipping Blind Rage would be ideal, as it allows for fewer, but more powerful, casts of Inferno.

Update 31.5 (2022-04-27)

  • Enemies that are not affected by CC can now be armor stripped by Ember’s Fire Blast.

Update 30.7 (2021-09-08)

  • Fixed Ember’s Immolation HUD meter not functioning after dying/Reviving until you Operator Transference.

Hotfix 29.2.1 (2020-10-01)

  • Fixed a script error when casting Ember’s Immolation ability.

Hotfix 28.0.5 (2020-06-17)

  • Fixed enemies that catch on fire from Ember’s Inferno receiving a new flaming comet called down and starting a new instance of the ability which can cause a chain reaction of rapid fire comets in enemy groups.

Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

  • Armor Change:
    • Ember: 100 to 125
    • Ember Prime: 125 to 150
    • Why: The conversation surrounding Arcane Guardian led to a significant review of Armor stats on Warfarmes. The Majority of Warframes received an increase in the Armor stat to increase survivability. Compounded with Shield Gating and the numerous other changes covered, we expect a much more fair feeling playing field for all Warframes.

Update 26.0 (2019-10-31)


New Passive: Receive 5% Ability Strength for every enemy within a 50m engulfed in flame (up to a cap).


Works fundamentally the same as it does now - tap for quick fire, hold to charge for greater impact. Enemies already inflicted by any Heat Status effect will now take additional damage.

Fireball has a casting combo, if you use it multiple times rapidly it gets stronger.

The damage output and charge speed also scale off of one of Ember’s newest abilities...

IMMOLATION (replacing Accelerant)

Time for a history lesson! Prior to Update 11.5, Ember’s second ability used to be “Overheat”, offering an aura of heat damage which also protected her from enemy fire. Almost SIX years later, it’s time for this ring of fire to come full circle.

When cast, Ember Immolates herself with protective fire armor. Her current level of self-Immolation is indicated by a unique UI indicator; the higher the heat, the more damage resistance, and the more effective Ember’s other abilities become.

The Immolation meter will build slowly at first - using Ember’s Fireball or Inferno causes the meter to build faster. But be warned! If the meter reaches maximum, Ember will “overheat” and Immolation will cost progressively more energy per second the longer you stay in an overheated state. To prevent this from happening, use Fire Blast to expel a portion of your heat meter, or toggle Immolation off to reset meter build.


Casting time has been greatly reduced, and the ability now strips armor from nearby enemies. The amount of armor removed scales in effectiveness based on current Immolation levels. On cast, this immediately reduces your Immolation level by up to half.

INFERNO (replacing World On Fire)

Upon casting Inferno, all enemies currently within sight are struck by a fiery comet, lighting each target ablaze in a personal ring of fire. Inferno costs Energy per each target in sight, with the cost capped at 10 targets, at which other enemies are then free.

If an enemy ignited by Inferno comes in contact with another unit, the fire will spread, igniting them as well with a fresh ability duration. Damage of the heat AoE scales with current Immolation level.

With these changes, players will take a more active role in “bringing the heat” to all that stand in their way, with added protection that encapsulates Ember’s volatile nature.
