* Aura mods increase the amount of Mod Capacity


Growing Power is dropped by the Knave Specter, available upon anointing a Silver Grove shrine with the Nightfall Apothic.


  • Does not trigger when dealing a Status Effect with Warframe abilities, only with equipped weapons.
  • Channeled Abilities (e.g., ExaltedBlade130xDark.png Exalted Blade) which are activated while the Ability Strength buff is active will keep the bonus as long as they're kept active, even if the buff duration is finished.
  • The Aura's power strength bonus of 25% can only be increased with multiple instances of the aura. A single mod can only give a single instance of the buff. Two of it can give two instances of the buff, and so on.
  • Multiple instances of this Aura will increase the Ability Strength bonus only, not the buff duration.
  • Robotic weapons with high status chance can easily proc Growing Power, thus removing the need to use specific Primary, Secondary or Melee Weapons.
  • The Ability Strength gained is additive with other strength mods. For example, a Warframe equipped with maxed Mod TT 20px.png Intensify and an active Mod TT 20px.png Growing Power buff would have +55% Ability Strength.


  • Does not trigger when dealing a Status Effect with archguns in atmosphere mode.
