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.

Patch History

Hotfix 36.0.4 (2024-06-26)

  • Updated Ember’s Fireball ability preview video to showcase its new version from the Jade Shadow’s update.

Update 36.0 (2024-06-18)

Warframe Changes

Ember Changes

We’ve made changes to the Heat-incarnate Warframe Ember to stoke the flames of her power and give her some more firepower.

Fireball (1st Ability):

  • Removed the hold to charge to get the maximum damage. The damage increase (500%) from the previous hold charge is now applied to the now default tap cast.
  • Its AOE now has a 100% guaranteed Heat Status Effect.
    • Previously, it only had a 50% chance to apply this effect.
  • Increased radius from 2m to 3m.
    • Previously, its max range with fully charged cast was 2.4m. So we’ve bumped it up to 3m for all casts.
  • Added an “Immolation Meter” stat to inform of the amount of Heat Fireball generates for Immolation.

Immolation (2nd Ability):

  • Reduced the Energy Per Second cost when at max Heat from 10 to 4.
    • We want to make it easier for players to maintain its Heat gauge at max.
  • Added an “Immolation Meter” stat to inform of the amount of Heat that is passively generated by Immolation.

Fire Blast (3rd Ability):

  • Energy cost now scales based on the Immolation’s Heat gauge
    • 75 Energy (at lowest) all the way down to 25 (at max).
  • Fireblast’s Heat Damage and Armor reduction now affects bosses that are by default vulnerable to Armor stripping abilities (ex: Captain Vor), as well as Acolytes and Demolishers.
    • Its knockdown effect will not affect those listed above that are CC immune.
  • Improved hit detection so that enemies at varying heights in relation to you (above or below) are hit by Fire Blast.
  • Added an “Immolation Meter” stat to inform of the decrease in Heat generation overtime.
  • Added an “Immolation Meter on Cast” stat to inform of the % of Heat Fire Blast removed from Immolation when cast.
  • Augment Mod Changes:
    • Healing Flame: Now converts all over healing (gaining Health points while as max Health) into Overguard.
      • Description now reads: “Each enemy hit heals by 25 to 50 depending on current Immolation level. With Ember, over healing grants you Overguard.”
      • This only applies to Ember herself and not to Fire Blast on other Warframes via Helminth.
    • Purifying Flame: Ember will now also benefit from the Status Effect cleansing and Status Immunity when hit by the ring of fire.

Inferno (4th Ability):

  • The Heat damage per second from ring of fire can now trigger Heat Status Effects.
    • For a boost in its CC effect and to give it a more lasting effect on impacted enemies.
  • Added an “Angle” stat to better inform of the on-screen LOS checks.
  • Added an “Immolation Meter” stat to inform of the amount of Inferno generated for Immolation.

Other Ember Changes/Fixes:

  • Moved Ember’s Passive icon from the Buffs Bar to be above the Immolation Gauge.

Hotfix 35.5.7 (2024-04-17)

Line of Sight (LoS) Changes & Fixes

As mentioned in our last Hotfix 35.5.6, the team continues to address and assess player reports of further LoS issues. While the quality and consistency of LoS checks has improved significantly, we're still not 100% satisfied and sometimes the results are still unpredictable. The team is investigating LoS checks at large occasionally having odd interactions with terrain, enemies, etc. which is causing inconsistencies in the checks. We are looking to have this resolved in the next Cert update (more info on what that means here).

For today, we have made LoS improvements to the following Warframe abilities:

  • Ember’s Inferno (Rendered Check)
    • In addition to rendered checking, it is also no longer FOV dependent, which was causing issues where enemies outside of FOV (low FOV settings) were not considered in the checks.

Update 35.0 (2023-12-13)

  • Fixed Ember’s Inferno not earning Shields from Energy spent when used with Augur Set Mods or Brief Respite.

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. Here are a few outliers before we get into the nitty-gritty of it:

  • Lavos, Nidus, Nidus Prime, and Kullervo all have buffs to their Armor values as a result of this change.
    • Ex: Nidus Prime’s Armor stat increased from 910 (previous) to 1,050 (new with this update) with max Steel Fiber Equipped. With all 3 Umbral Warframe Mods equipped, this buff results in a difference of 1198 Armor (previous) to 1470 Armor (new with this update).
  • Garuda and Garuda Prime’s received buffs to their Modded Energy pool.
    • ie. Garuda Prime’s Energy stat has been increased from 800 (previous) to 912 (new with this update) with max Primed Flow equipped.

Warframe Stat Changes:

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 - 135 (from 125)
Energy: Base Rank - 175 (from 150) / Max Rank - 225 (from 225)

Health: Base Rank - 270 (from 100) / Max Rank - 370 (from 300)
Shields: Base Rank - 365 (from 125) / Max Rank - 465 (from 375)
Armor: Base Rank - 160 (from 150)
Energy: Base Rank - 175 (from 150) / Max Rank - 225 (from 225)

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!

Top Fixes:
  • Fixed being able to gain Affinity from Ember's Inferno when no enemies are within range. Affinity on Ability cast is tied to Energy cost, and since Inferno has a free-cast trait this slipped by!

Hotfix 32.0.12 (2022-10-12)

  • Fixed the Theorem Demulcent Arcane applying its weapon damage increase buff to Ember’s Fireball.
    • Theorem Demulcent is designed to only increase weapon damage and should not be able to affect any Warframe ability.

Hotfix 32.0.7 (2022-09-28)

  • Fixed Ember’s Fire blast shockwave not proc’ing Archon Vitality’s double Heat damage bonus.

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.

Ember Augment Changes
  • Fireball: Fireball Frenzy: This augment is unchanged.
  • Immolation: Flash Accelerant is now Immolated Radiance: Allies within Affinity range will receive 50% of Immolation’s Damage Reduction.
