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 (2015-07-31).

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 can be obtained by defeating Tyl Regor on Titania, Uranus. Equinox's main blueprint can be purchased from the Market.

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)

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.png 225,000. 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.png 300. 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.png 325, which saves Platinum64.png 15 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 take 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 her 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.
    • This bug later happened again with Sevagoth.
  • 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.png Equilibrium. Extra health generated from ArcanePulse64x.png Arcane Pulse and extra energy generated from ArcaneEnergize64x.png Arcane 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. Customizing Equinox's primary emission color determines what form she starts with:

  • Bright hues change default form to Day-Form;
  • Dark hues change default form to Night-Form.

Note that players do not need to purchase color palettes to unlock the full potential of this trait.

While customizing her emission color, Equinox's active form is displayed in the form of an icon. Upon changing colors, her combined form in Arsenal preview will also change her stance animation to reflect the chosen form's personality.

Customizing the secondary emission and the energy colors will have no effect.

Forms and abilities can be cycled mid-mission using Metamorphosis130xDark.png Metamorphosis.

Metamorphosis
Switch forms, temporarily gaining bonus shields and armor in Night-Form, or bonus damage and speed in Day-Form.

Night form
Strength:100 / 150 / 200 / 250 (armor bonus)
50 / 75 / 100 / 150 (shield bonus)
Duration:10 / 15 / 20 / 25 s

5% / 10% / 12% / 15% (speed bonus)
Duration:10 / 15 / 20 / 25 s
Range:N/A

Info
  • Equinox transforms between her night or day forms, over 1 second. She acquires abilities exclusive to each form and gains bonuses that diminish over 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 seconds.
  • These bonuses decay linearly every second until they equal zero on ability expiration.
    • Stat bonus duration is affected by Ability Duration. The transformation time is not.
  • The bonuses differ depending on Equinox's form:

Night form
  • Upon switching to Night Form, Equinox can use Rest, Pacify, and Mend.
  • She gains 100 / 150 / 200 / 250 armor and 50 / 75 / 100 / 150 shields, affected by Ability Strength.
    • Both are additive with Equinox's current armor and shield capacity (e.g., a level-30 Equinox with a maxed Mod TT 20px.png Redirection, Mod TT 20px.png Steel Fiber, and Mod TT 20px.png Intensify will have 300 + 100 × 4.4 + 150 × 1.3 = 935 shields and 100 × 2.1 + 250 × 1.3 = 535 armor within the first second of a rank-3 Metamorphosis after the initial transformation is complete).
    • On missions with ice hazards, the shield decay rate is halved. When the ability ends, Equinox will be left with overshields equal to 50% of the listed maximum shield bonuses.

Day form
  • Upon switching to Day Form, Equinox can use Rage, Provoke, and Maim.
  • She gains 10% / 15% / 20% / 25% weapon damage and 5% / 10% / 12% / 15% movement speed, affected by Ability Strength.
    • The damage buff is additive with the base damage of weapons (e.g., with a maxed Mod TT 20px.png Heavy Caliber and Mod TT 20px.png Intensify, a weapon that inflicts 250 base damage will be increased to 250 × (1 + 1.65 + 0.25 × 1.3) = 743.75 within the first second of a rank-3 Metamorphosis after the initial transformation is complete).
      • Does not work on melee weapons
    • The movement speed buff is multiplicative with other movement speed modifiers (e.g., with a maxed Mod TT 20px.png Rush and Mod TT 20px.png Intensify, a rank-3 Metamorphosis will increase Equinox's sprint speed to (1 × 1.3) × (1 + 0.15 × 1.3) = 1.5535 within the first second after the initial transformation is complete).


  • Switching between forms removes any bonuses granted by the previous form. Only a single set of Metamorphosis buffs can be active at any given time.
  • While switching, Equinox cannot cast any abilities but can perform all other actions such as moving and using weapons.
  • PacifyProvoke130xDark.png Pacify & Provoke and MendMaim130xDark.png Mend & Maim are deactivated upon casting Metamorphosis. However, casting Metamorphosis in Day Form while Provoke is active will increase the armor and shield bonuses for Equinox's Night Form.
  • During the transformation, Equinox momentarily becomes whole with her night and day features merged together, then separates into the opposite form.

In Night Form targets are put to sleep. In Day Form targets become more vulnerable to damage.

Duration:10 / 14 / 18 / 22 s
Range:1 / 3 / 3 / 5 m (area radius)
20 / 30 / 40 / 50 m (cast range)

Info
  • Equinox hypnotizes a target up to 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 meters away. Enemies within 1 / 3 / 3 / 5 meters are also affected. This lasts 10 / 14 / 18 / 22 seconds.
  • Night Equinox lulls enemies into sleep, Day Equinox spurs them into hyperactivity.

Night form
  • Affected enemies are forced to sleep. They automatically wake up when the duration expires or their health reaches 80% / 70% / 60% / 50% of their current values.
  • Sleeping enemies are:
    • Open to Melee Finisher attack prompts (default X );
    • Susceptible to Stealth Damage Multipliers;
    • Visually tethered to the ground by energy threads;
    • Ragdolled in a sleeping posture when dealt damage;
    • Cannot recover from stagger, knockdown, and ragdoll effects until they wake.
  • Enemies retain their current alertness state on cast (i.e., unaware enemies put to sleep will remain unaware for this duration, while alerted enemies will remain alert). Enemies under the effects of Rest will always be susceptible to melee finishers and stealth damage multipliers; however, affected enemies that were previously alerted will not grant Stealth Kill Affinity Bonuses.
  • Energy threads will visually strike enemies in the targeted area to indicate affected targets.

Day form
  • Affected enemies are enraged. They receive 20% / 30% / 40% / 50% increased damage from all sources, and 5% / 10% / 15% / 20% movement speed and attack speed bonuses.
    • Damage Vulnerability and enemy speed bonus are affected by Ability Strength.
    • The damage vulnerability adds multiplicatively to the original damage the affected enemy would receive (e.g., with a maxed Mod TT 20px.png Intensify, an enemy that would receive 250 damage will be dealt 250 × (1 + 0.5 × 1.3) = 412.5 damage under the effects of a rank-3 Rage).
  • Casting Rage while Provoke is active will increase the percentage of damage vulnerability.
  • Enraged enemies visually emit a ribbon of energy and energy particles.
  • Energy threads will visually emit from Day Equinox to strike enemies in the targeted area.


  • Rest and Rage's sleep and enrage effects can overlap on targets already affected by either version of the ability.
  • Recasting on the same target will not refresh Rest or Rage effects; however, unaffected enemies can be acquired within the targeted area.
  • Subsuming Equinox to the Helminth will offer Rest & Rage and its augments to be used by other Warframes. The Rest or Rage versions are determined by the Warframe's primary emission color.

Augment

Main article: Calm & Frenzy

Calm & Frenzy is a Warframe Augment Mod for EquinoxIcon272.png Equinox that aids her in spreading the effects of RestRage130xDark.png Rest & Rage. Enemies slain while affected by Rest & Rage spreads it to others within close proximity, for the remaining duration.

Rank Range Duration Cost
0 2m 40% 6
1 3m 60% 7
2 4m 80% 8
3 5m 100% 9

Tips & Tricks
  • Rest can be used for crowd control by using it on a large group of enemies, doing this will let you use stealth attacks on them while they are affected.
  • Rage can be used make Maim more effective by having the aura of DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage do more and acquire more charge for a more powerful release.
  • It is possible to activate stealth kill affinity bonuses on enemies using low-damage automatic weapons (ex. Grakata.png Grakata) by casting Rest on an unaware enemy. Affected enemies can then be shot repeatedly and then killed without changing their unaware state, allowing for the affinity multiplier to activate.
  • When combined with awareness of nearby enemies and sufficient duration on the ability, Rest can be paired with Mod TT 20px.png Covert Lethality to great effect. Casting the ability on otherwise-hard-to-kill enemies -- single targets, or small-to-medium-sized groups -- opens them up to stealth attacks and finisher moves.
    • Note that this combination is only effective if the targeted enemies are actually vulnerable to stealth finishers. Some enemies, (such as certain infested units or robotic enemies), are either frequently troublesome to target with a finisher move (due to hitbox detection issues) -- such as the Infested Ancients -- or they are completely immune to finisher moves at the time of this writing (Hotfix 18.1.4 (2015-12-21)), because they do not trigger the finisher prompts.
    • Except for the enemies immune to stealth finishers listed above, this combination works against all enemies, regardless of their alertness level prior to becoming a target of Rest.
    • Note that mods that affect melee attack-speed will also affect the speed of Finisher animations, so using attack-speed mods in conjunction with Mod TT 20px.png Covert Lethality -- rather than just using damage mods -- is advised. (If your strategy is to consistently kill with stealth finishers, it doesn't really matter how much damage your normal attacks would otherwise do.)

Info
  • Equinox emits a crippling or empowering aura with a radius of 10 / 12 / 14 / 16 meters. Pacify & Provoke will remain active indefinitely until deactivated by casting Metamorphosis130xDark.png Metamorphosis, by running out of energy, or by pressing the ability key again (default 3 ).
  • Equinox utilizes different versions of the ability depending on her current form:

Night form
  • Night Equinox emits a crippling aura that affects all enemies within range, reducing their damage up to 20% / 33% / 43% / 50% the closer they are to Equinox. While Pacify is active, 1.5 / 1.25 / 1 / 0.5 energy is drained per second for each enemy within the aura.
    • The damage reduction falls-off with distance.
      • The aura is itself divided into 4 subsequent "rings", each with 1/4 of the total radius of the ability.
      • The inner most ring grants the listed damage reduction, while the outermost aura grants (where the damage reduction reaches its smallest value) grants half of that value.
    • Damage reduction is affected by Ability Strength.
    • The maximum value of damage reduction is calculated through the following formula:
      Modified Damage Reduction = 1 − [Base Damage Reduction ÷ (1 + Ability Strength)].
      • With a rank-3 Pacify, and with a maxed Mod TT 20px.png Intensify, Equinox reduces enemy damage in the inner most ring by 1 − [0.5 ÷ (1 + 0.3)] = 61.5385%, and by ~62% ÷ 2 = ~31% in the outer most.
    • Energy drain per enemy is affected by Ability Efficiency.
    • Despite being a channeled ability, this does not interrupt energy regeneration from Mod TT 20px.png Energy Siphon or FocusEnergizingDash.png Wellspring and it is unaffected by Ability Duration.
    • Energy can still be gained from Energy Orbs, Limbo's Rift Plane, Trinity's EnergyVampire130xDark.png Energy Vampire, and Energy Restores while enemies are within the aura.
  • Enemies in range are highlighted in Equinox's energy color. Color intensity scales with distance from Equinox, with the nearest enemies glowing the brightest.

Day form
  • Day Equinox emits an empowering aura that grants Equinox and all ally Warframes within range an additional 5% / 10% / 15% / 20% Ability Strength. While Provoke is active, 5 / 4.33 / 3.66 / 3 energy is drained for each Warframe ability cast within the aura.
    • Unlike Pacify, the Ability Strength bonus does not fall-off with distance
    • Ability Strength bonus is affected by Ability Strength and cannot exceed 50% unless Mod TT 20px.png Peaceful Provocation is equipped. Different instances of Provoke auras do not stack, only the strongest bonus will be applied.
    • Provoke, after being affected by equipped Ability Strength mods, stacks additively with Ability Strength bonuses when applied to other abilities (e.g., with a maxed Mod TT 20px.png Intensify, Equinox's abilities will gain 0.3 + 0.2 × 1.3 = 56% Ability Strength when cast while a rank-3 Provoke is active).
    • In order to acquire the Ability Strength bonus from Provoke, allies only have to cast their abilities while inside the aura.
    • Energy cost per ability is affected by Ability Efficiency.
    • Despite being a channeled ability, this does not interrupt energy regeneration from Mod TT 20px.png Energy Siphon or FocusEnergizingDash.png Wellspring and it is unaffected by Ability Duration.
    • The additional energy cost is only applied when abilities are activated within the aura, including Equinox's abilities. The energy cost is not applied for energy drains.
  • While switching to Night Form will deactivate Provoke, the armor and shield bonuses from Metamorphosis130xDark.png Metamorphosis will gain additional Ability Strength. As such, the additional energy cost will be applied.


  • Aura radius is visibly determined by wave-like strings of energy orbiting Equinox.
  • Cast delay of 1.25 seconds is affected by Mod TT 20px.png Natural Talent.

Mend & Maim
In Night-Form, allies’ Shields are replenished with each nearby enemy killed. In Day-Form, enemies are inflicted with the Bleed Status Effect. Deactivate to cast a wave of slashing force, or restore Health and Shields to Equinox and allies in Night Form.
Energy Drain: 3.5 s-1

Strength:10 / 15 / 20 / 25 (shields per kill)
Mend
Duration:N/A
Range:10 / 12 / 15 / 18 m

Maim
Strength:75 / 100 / 125 / 150 (aura DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage)
Duration:N/A
Range:10 / 12 / 15 / 18 m
Misc:50% / 55% / 60% / 75% (damage conversion)

Info
  • Equinox calls forth the serenity of night or calamity of day, surrounding herself in an aura of moonlight's gleam or sunlight's glare with a radius of 10 / 12 / 15 / 18 meters.
  • Mend & Maim drain 3.5 energy per second while active. Mend & Maim will end when Equinox's energy is depleted, Equinox is incapacitated, Mend & Maim is deactivated by casting Metamorphosis130xDark.png Metamorphosis, or by pressing the ability key again (default 4 ).
  • Equinox utilizes different versions of the ability depending on her current form:

Night form
  • Night Equinox emits a regenerative aura that grants 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 Shield per enemy killed within range to Equinox and her allies inside the aura. Mend accumulates 50% / 55% / 60% / 75% of damage dealt to enemies' shield and health while they are within the aura radius. Though the accumulation occurs only when the enemy is killed, whether they are still inside the aura or not. Upon deactivating Mend, all stored hitpoints are evenly distributed to the shields and health of Equinox and her allies within range.
    • Shield per kill is affected by Ability Strength, while hitpoint conversion percentage is not.
    • Shields gained from enemies killed can accumulate Overshields.
    • The total amount of accumulated hitpoints is visible under Mend's icon beside Equinox's shield and health indicators.
    • Hitpoints restored per ally is calculated with the following expression: HP Restored per Ally = Total Accumulated HP ÷ (Equinox + Number of Allies).
    • When Equinox and her allies are healed, health restoration is prioritized over shield restoration (i.e., Mend will fully restore health before it can fully restore shields). This becomes apparent should there be an insufficient amount of stored hitpoints to completely heal Equinox and her allies within range when Mend is deactivated.
    • Allies are only healed up to their maximum shields and health; therefore, any excess accumulated hitpoints are effectively lost.
    • Affected allies includes all Warframes, Companions, Eidolon Lures, summoned allied units such as Specters, allied Invasion units, Hostages, Kavor Defectors, Sortie and Arbitrations Defense Operatives, and Defense Objects.
      • On Defense Objects, Mend restores up to 500 shields over 5 seconds which does not stack with similar restoration effects.

Day form
  • Day Equinox emits a lacerating aura that deals 75 / 100 / 125 / 150 DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage with a 100% status chance to all enemies within range. Maim accumulates 50% / 55% / 60% / 75% of damage dealt to enemies' shield and health while they are within the aura radius as DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage. Though the accumulation occurs only when the enemy is killed, whether they are still inside the aura or not. Upon deactivating Maim, all stored damage is released in a violent burst that affects all enemies within range.
    • Aura damage is affected by Ability Strength, while the damage conversion percentage is not.
    • DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash status effect causes a Bleed DoT on the target that inflicts 35% of Maim's base damage per tick for a total of 6 ticks over 6 seconds. The Bleed damage bypasses armor.
    • Enemies damaged by the aura are temporarily stunned.
    • The aura damage, proc, and stun will only apply once to each individual enemy.
    • Aura damage does not affect inert objects with health pool, such as Storage Containers or Kubrow Dens, while releasing stored damage does.
    • The total amount of accumulated damage is visible under Maim's icon beside Equinox's shield and health indicators.
    • Upon deactivation the total accumulated damage is transformed into an AoE DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage, which bypasses obstacles in the environment, against all enemies currently within the aura. Damage diminishes with distance but is not divided among the enemies.
      AoE Damage (for each enemy) = Accumulated Damage × (1 - Distance to the Enemy ÷ Aura Radius)
      • Damage calculation here is before enemy's damage reduction
  • Casting MendMaim130xDark.png Maim while PacifyProvoke130xDark.png Provoke is active will increase the aura damage.
  • Affected enemies are visually lashed by energy whips as they receive damage.
  • Maim can be recast to apply the aura damage, proc, and stun on previously affected enemies; however, recasting requires deactivation which will discharge all stored damage.


  • Aura range is visibly determined by the glistening wave-like energy on all surfaces around Equinox.
  • Enemies in range are highlighted in Equinox's energy color at its highest color intensity.
  • Cast delay of 2 seconds and deactivation delay of 1 second are affected by Mod TT 20px.png Natural Talent.

Augment
EnergyTransfer.png
Main article: Energy Transfer

Energy Transfer is a Warframe Augment Mod for EquinoxIcon272.png Equinox that allows MendMaim130xDark.png Mend & Maim to remain active when switching forms via Metamorphosis130xDark.png Metamorphosis, transforming the stored damage OR health charge into the corresponding opposite.


Rank Charge Conserved Cost
0 50% 6
1 65% 7
2 80% 8
3 100% 9

Tips & Tricks
  • Mend can easily acquire a sufficient amount of charge to heal any allies and recover shields.
  • Mend & Maim will only absorb allies' damage on enemy health if a Warframe ability is involved.[citation needed]
  • While active, Mend & Maim will continue to store damage even in operator mode.
  • As Maim deals only DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage, it is less effective against heavily armored enemies like Grineer.
    • Maim is, however, quite effective against the Infested as they possess no armor and their health classes, except for Sinew, are vulnerable to DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage.
  • As damage accumulation/health conversion rate is not affected by Ability Strength, Mend & Maim wouldn't require high Ability Strength to be effective, especialy if built for effect upon deactivation.
    • Note that Mend's shield retored per kill is still affected by Ability Strength.
