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: The Old Blood.

  • Ember is the fourth Frame to have a Prime, after ExcaliburIcon272 Excalibur, FrostIcon272 Frost, and MagIcon272 Mag.
  • As seen from concept art and beta game footage, Ember was originally male. Ember was changed to a female in Update 5.3.
  • 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.

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 Ember:
    • Higher Shields (125/375 vs. 100/300)
    • Higher Armor (150 vs. 125)
    • Different Polarities (Madurai PolVazarin Pol vs. Naramon PolNaramon Pol)
  • 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 and a Vazarin Pol polarity, compared to Ember's double Naramon Pol. 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, 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, 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.

Edit Tab

Hotfix 29.2.1

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

Hotfix 28.0.5

  • 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

  • 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


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.
  • Fire Blast: Fire Fright is now Healing Flame: Each enemy hit heals Ember by 25 to 50 based on the level of the Immolation meter.
  • Inferno: Firequake is now Exothermic: Enemies killed while under the effect of Inferno have a 15% chance to drop an Energy Orb.
  • Vauban and Ember have been removed from Conclave in the meantime for balancing.

Update 25.7

  • Fixed Flash Accelerant having incorrect stat text (Extra Damage not Armor Reduction).

Update 25.6

Fireball Frenzy - Fireball Augment - Ember
  • Holding the casting button will send out a wave (much like similar, expanding Warframe Abilities) giving the elemental buff to every player it touches, including the caster

Hotfix 22.17.1

  • Fixed Ember's Fireblast unintentionally melting Lephantis/Hemocyte heads like a popsicle in July when cast directly on top of them.

Hotfix 22.13.2

  • Fixed Ember's Fire Blast not providing additional Heat damage to Clients who shoot through the flame ring.

Update 22.12

  • Fireball
    • Can now be held and charged for additional damage. Upon impact, Fireball will leave behind a Napalm-like flame that damages enemies.
  • Fire Blast
    • Will now add heat damage to weapons that fire through it (for allies).
  • World On Fire
    • 5 seconds after casting, a percentage will begin counting up on the ability icon. As this percentage scales from 0% to 100% over 10 seconds, the ability's energy cost and damage dealt both grow to double, while the ability radius shrinks to half.

Update 19.7

  • Fixed Ember's Flash Accelerant Augment not adding Fire Damage to the caster.

  • Augment: Accelerant - Flash Accelerant
