- Passive - casting abilities provides every fourth cast a 100% Ability Strength bonus.
- Grenade Fan - Protea scatters 3 grenades in front of her that explode into clouds of shrapnel on impact, lasting for a duration and dealing Slash damage with a chance to proc and staggering all enemies within range. Holding down the ability key (default ) instead deploys 3 shield drones on the ground, arming them to orbit around Protea and her allies nearby. Each shield drone lasts for a duration, constantly recharges its target's Shield points per second, which can accumulate into Overshield, as well as extending the duration of shield gating invulnerability upon shield depletion.
- Blaze Artillery - Protea launches the laser turret attached to her utility belt, deploying it to hover in the air in front of her. The laser turret lasts for a short duration, during which it locks onto multiple nearby enemies and fires a barrage of energy beams in between short intervals. Each energy beam deals high Heat damage with a chance to proc to its target and other enemies within the area of effect; beam and area damage further increases by 50% with each enemy hit.
- Laser turret duration is shown on the ability icon, as well as displayed on the rear of the turret as a holographic circle.
- Dispensary - Protea deploys a hovering stationary dispensary drone for a duration. The dispensary drone periodically warps in a high-yield Health Orb that restores 100 health, an Ammo pickup, and an Energy Orb, with a chance to simultaneously drop a second copy of an item. Items are arranged in a triangular formation around the drone, only replaced once picked up.
- Chance to drop a second item is affected by Ability Strength.
- Temporal Anchor - Protea snapshots herself with a temporal anchor, saving her position and stats at the time of ability activation. While anchored in the past, Protea is free to perform all actions, which still affects the present. All actions made by Protea are recorded as a trail of time clones mimicking her specific actions every second; damage dealt by Protea while anchored is stored and shown beneath the aiming reticle. At the end of the ability or upon manual deactivation, Protea unleashes all stored damage upon nearby enemies as she physically rewinds to her saved position. Her shields, health, energy, and ammo are restored to the amounts saved at the moment her anchor was made; if Protea receives lethal damage while anchored, she automatically rewinds with her health paused at 2 points.
- Currently in the ability design phase.

This Friday at 2 p.m ET - join Devs and I to go over how things have changed at DE since our last Home Devstream on March 27. We are ending our 6th week of remote work, and we have a lot to discuss on the good, the bad, and the clone-rot since our last check in! We also have a special little video from our team at home checking in on what they've been up to!
This will be experimental as we have limited hardware at home:
See you at 2 pm ET Friday April 24. twitch.tv/warframe & mixer.com/playwarframe
