Split between day and night, Equinox manifests aggressive and defensive forms at will.

This is Equinox, a deadly duality.

A true Tenno must master the divide between night and day. Do you have what it takes?

Release Date: July 31st, 2015

A duality of contrasting forces in a single entity, Equinox unleashes wrath like the onset of daybreak, or draws life to a close like dusk's approach. Shifting between two forms allows her to bolster Tenno strength in light or provide recuperative respite in darkness. Equinox dawned in Update 17.0.

Acquisition

Equinox requires a unique method to craft: Tenno must forge both the Equinox Night Aspect and Equinox Day Aspect in the Foundry – each of which requires its respective Neuroptics, Chassis, and Systems – before the Warframe itself can be built. Component and Aspect blueprints are acquired by defeating Tyl Regor at Titania, Uranus; the main blueprint can be bought in the market.
Drop Chance Expected Nearly Guaranteed
Day Aspect Blueprint 11.28% 21 – 22 69 ± 18
Day Chassis Blueprint 12.91%
Day Neuroptics Blueprint 12.91%
Day Systems Blueprint 12.91%
Night Aspect Blueprint 11.28%
Night Chassis Blueprint 12.91%
Night Neuroptics Blueprint 12.91%
Night Systems Blueprint 12.91%

Expected refers to total number of attempts a player can expect to need in order to receive at least one of each drop associated with the respective values.

Nearly Guaranteed refers to the total number of attempts a player needs to obtain a 99%, 99.9%, and 99.99% probability to receive at least one of each drop associated with the respective values.

Notes

  • Equinox's first Emissive Color determines which form she begins with during a mission – light-colored hues has her start in her Day Form, and dark-colored hues has her start in her Night Form. This does not affect her overall gameplay otherwise.
  • Equinox currently requires the most components to build, requiring four blueprints each for the Night and Day Aspects, and one for the Warframe itself. This totals to 9 components.
  • Equinox is one of the most expensive Warframes in credits to build, with the total cost amounting to Credits64.png225,000. This includes the cost to buy the Equinox blueprint from the Market along with the cost in constructing a Forma.
    • Equinox is currently the only Warframe that requires a Forma to build.
  • Rushing through all the components requires Platinum64.png300. If a player desires to rush all of the components, including the main blueprint, it may be wiser to outright buy the Warframe from the market for Platinum64.png325, which saves Platinum64.png15 for the pre-installed Orokin Reactor and the Warframe slot.
  • Equinox is currently the longest to build out of all Warframes. Each component to the Day and Night Aspects takes 12 hours to craft, the Aspects themselves both takes 72 hours, and the Warframe itself takes another 72 hours, to a total of 156 hours at minimum.

Trivia

  • Despite the androgynous nature of Equinox's design, former Community Editorial Coordinator Adam Ma has confirmed that Equinox is a female Warframe with a masculine form.[1]
  • Equinox appears as her composite form (both day and night) in any shared space, such as in the player's Landing Craft, in Relays, or while using Archwings. This form can also be seen briefly when shifting between forms with Metamorphosis130xDark.png Metamorphosis.
    • When customizing her appearance, a button in the bottom right of the screen labelled "Metamorphosis" allows players to switch between Equinox's three forms. However, leaving the Appearance menu reverts Equinox back to her Composite form.
  • Equinox refers to a biannual event where daytime and night are of roughly equal duration.
    • During her development, Equinox's separate forms were originally referred to as Anima and Animus, both of which are concepts in Jungian Psychology. They are respectively described as the feminine and masculine aspects of a person's psyche. Equinox is still referred to as 'AnimaAnimus' internally in the game files.
  • When Equinox is equipped with Wisp's Agile animation, and unarmed, she will split into her day and night form. Similar to Wukong who spawns his Celestial twin with the same Animation

Notes

  • Equinox Prime, compared to EquinoxIcon272.png Equinox:
    • Higher Health (125/375 vs. 100/300)
    • Higher Armor (150 vs. 125)
    • Higher Energy (165/248 vs. 150/225)
    • Different Polarities (Vazarin Pol.svgVazarin Pol.svgMadurai Pol.svgMadurai Pol.svg vs. Vazarin Pol.svgMadurai Pol.svg)
    • Higher Mastery Rank required (5 vs. 0)
  • As a Prime Warframe, Equinox 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.
  • Equinox Prime features additional particle effects for two of her abilities.
    • While switching form with Metamorphosis130xDark.png Metamorphosis, there will be swirling particles around her body, as well as stripes of energy that fly out and loop back to her. Switching from day to night and night to day have slightly different paths of particles.
    • Casting RestRage130xDark.png Rest & Rage will produce effects on affected enemies. In day form, vertical circling particles will appear around the enemies and then fade away. In night form, rotating sprinkling particles will appear above enemies for the duration of the ability.

Trivia

  • Equinox Prime Helmet in composite form is asymmetrical, with her right horn facing up and her left horn facing down. This is opposed to her day form and night form, where both horns face the same direction.
    • This is opposite to her non-Primed variant, whose composite helmet is symmetrical and day/night forms' helmets are asymmetrical.
    • Also, Equinox Prime's composite form seamlessly blends appearances of day form and night form together, instead of symmetrical division.
    • Equinox Prime's Day Form uses mainly a dark blue hue, whereas Night Form uses white. This is the opposite of her non-Prime version which has Day Form in light colors and Night Form in dark.
  • While Equinox's composite form more closely resembles her night form, with a slim build and decorative drapes, Equinox Prime's composite form bears a closer resemblance to her day form, having the gold ornaments of her day form and lacking the drapes of her night form.
  • Equinox Prime only requires 4 parts, compared to her non-Primed variant, who requires 9 parts.

Bugs

  • Helminth cyst is not visible on Equinox Prime, regardless of how big or how small it is.
  • Unlike her normal form, Equinox Prime’s drapes clip through the ground.

Passive

When EquinoxIcon272.png Equinox collects Health Orbs or Energy Orbs, 10% of the restored amount is converted into additional Energy and Health respectively. This effect stacks with Mod TT 20px.pngEquilibrium. Extra health generated from ArcanePulse64x.pngArcane Pulse and extra energy generated from ArcaneEnergize64x.pngArcane Energize and Zenurik's Energy Pulse do not amplify the conversion, as they are not considered as being from orbs.

Equinox can shift between two forms to alter her abilities: the offensive-focused Day-Form or the defensive/supportive-focused Night-Form. Equinox will begin any mission in either Day-Form or Night-Form. The default form can be determined by changing the primary emission color:

  • Bright hues change default form to Day-Form;
  • Dark hues change default form to Night-Form.
Upon changing colors, Equinox's combined form in Arsenal preview will change her stance animation to reflect the chosen form's personality. Customizing the secondary emission and the energy colors will have no effect.
