Energy Conversion is a Warframe mod that increases Ability Strength for the next ability cast after picking up an energy orb.


Rank Ability Strength Cost
0 +9% 10
1 +18% 11
2 +26% 12
3 +34% 13
4 +42% 14
5 +50% 15



  • Does not stack, only one bonus at a time.
  • Additional Ability Strength is additive.
  • Ability Strength bonus affects Warframe Augment Mods.
  • Affects Channeled abilities, such as ExaltedBlade130xDark.png Exalted Blade and Razorwing130xDark.png Razorwing, for the duration they are active.
  • Affects abilities that have a duration for the whole duration. For example, the shadows summoned by ShadowsOfTheDead130xDark.png Shadows Of The Dead keep the increased Ability Strength, even when the shadows are healed/teleported.
  • There is a very small delay between picking up an energy orb and energy conversion triggering, often related to host / client ping.
  • Using abilities while standing on an energy orb often will not trigger energy conversion.
  • Health Orbs picked up while using Mod TT 20px.png Equilibrium do not provide Ability Strength.
  • Despite appearing on the player's HUD as a buff (with the same visual and auditory cue as an Arcane Enhancement triggering), it will not be nullified by Nullifier Crewmen nor by passing through Void Portals in Orokin Sabotage.
  • Universal Orbs created by LavosIcon272.png Lavos's TransmutationProbe130xDark.png Transmutation Probe trigger this mod's effect upon collection.


Besides random drops from containers and lockers, enemies killed can be encouraged to drop energy orbs more often in several ways:

  • GaraIcon272.png Gara's Mod TT 20px.png Spectrosiphon augment allows killed enemies within the radius to have a 50% chance to drop an energy orb.
  • NezhaIcon272.png Nezha's BlazingChakram130xDark.png Blazing Chakram allows enemies hit to have a 35% chance to drop an energy orb when killed.
  • EmberIcon272.png Ember's Mod TT 20px.png Exothermic provides a 15% chance for enemies killed to drop an energy orb.
  • MagIcon272.png Mag increases the chance of an energy orb dropping by 25% from enemies killed by her Pull130xDark.png Pull.
  • Dethcube's Mod TT 20px.png Energy Generator produces a energy orb every time the sentinel assists in the killing of 10 enemies.
  • Using the special siphon ability of the BrokenScepter.png Broken Scepter on a destroyed robotic enemy has a guaranteed chance to spawn an energy orb.
