Lore

Main article: Leverian#Nezha
Nezha. The mercurial firemonger. The clarion of hope. However foul the decadent excesses of the Orokin Empire, the aftermath of its collapse was arguably worse. But, the darkest times often give rise to the brightest legends. We've seen that happen often, haven't we? Tales of a being called Nezha predate the Orokin Fall. They speak of a swift warrior who leaves trails of fire, summoning barbed spears from the very earth. But it is during a time of unsurpassed brutality, at a moment of wanton slaughter, that this most blazingly improbable of Warframes first proves to be more than a myth.

Following the fall of the Orokin Empire, the farmland Reshantur suffered from routine and violent exchange of hands. As the poor farmers could not afford proper defenses, they were forced to rely on the eldest of children, who fashioned themselves after Nezha from relics found in the area.

During a defense from the Corpus, an incident that would come to be known as the Massacre of Reshantur, the farmland was torn asunder by flame. A Corpus surveyor named Jena Xasparin found a solitary boy in the midst of Corpus remains that were dismembered, impaled, and burned. The boy claimed "Nezha did it", that he razed the field with his wheels of flame; the children would go with Nezha as part of his celestial army while the boy stayed behind to tell the tale. Xasparin assumed the boy was traumatized and there was mutiny within the Corpus ranks, but every single blackened bone that was excavated and gene-tagged had belonged to an adult.

And at last, we meet Nezha face to face, in all his unquestionable reality. Did this Warframe model itself on the myths, to take on the mantle of a mythic hero? Or were the myths left in the Warframe's wake, a blazing trail to light the way? Ah. History will always be some manner of educated guesswork, and occasionally one of faith. Perhaps in some deeper stratum, we will find the lost children of Reshantur, sad little clusters of bones, not saved at all. But I have faith we will not. I leave you with this. Why do you suppose it was the child soldiers that Nezha chose to protect? Any war has its innocent casualties, but these seem to have called to him. What could a Warframe, a lethal specialist warrior, possibly have in common with a child? That riddle, I fear, must remain a riddle.

Trivia

  • Nezha is the third Warframe that was first introduced as a timed exclusive to Warframe China, after Excalibur UmbraIcon272.png Excalibur Umbra and WukongIcon272.png Wukong.
  • In Chinese folklore, Nezha is known as a protection deity and is the third son of Li Jing. He is also known by his title of "Third Lotus Prince", which was bestowed on him following his deification, and his Taoist name of "Marshal of the Central Altar".
    • The Warframe's androgynous appearance is a nod to the deity's youthful appearance, which belied his reputation as a trickster. To clear out any confusion regarding this, Digital Extremes has stated that the Warframe is male. [1]
  • The rings that adorn the Warframe's body (and are used for some of his abilities) are also references to Nezha's lore;
    • The rings on his ankles (which are activated when FireWalker130xDark.png Fire Walker is in use) are known as the Wind Fire Wheels, ​and allowed the deity to walk in the air or fly.
    • The ring on his back (which is utilized when casting BlazingChakram130xDark.png Blazing Chakram) is known as the Universe Ring while the spears summoned by casting DivineSpears130xDark.png Divine Spears seem to be derived from the Fire-tipped Spear. Both artifacts were bestowed by his teacher Taiyi Zhenren.
  • Nezha appears in Journey to the West, under the command of his father Li Jing. In the story, Li Jing's troops (among other forces) are summoned to fight Sun Wukong after the latter rebels against the Jade Emperor. Nezha is among those Wukong defeats after a three-day long battle, but the two befriend each other and Nezha would assist Wukong and his friends during their travels.
  • Prior to Update 19.0 (2016-11-11), Nezha's component blueprints were obtained via Sortie rewards. Furthermore Nezha was the first and only non-Prime Warframe whose component part blueprints could be traded between players. Since the update trading is no longer possible.
  • The quote "Nezha is a burning thing, and he makes a fiery ring." from Nezha's profile video is a quote from Johnny Cash's song, Ring of Fire.

Notes

  • Nezha Prime, compared to NezhaIcon272.png Nezha:
  • As a Prime Warframe, Nezha Prime possesses a special passive ability where when he makes contact with an Orokin Void Death Orb, it will make him 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.
  • Nezha Prime's DivineSpears130xDark.png Divine Spears conjures physical spears with golden blades, similar to that of GuandaoPrime.png Guandao Prime.

Trivia

  • Nezha Prime was leaked by linking him in the in-game chat, which was promptly patched out in a hotfix. During Home Devstream 7, Nezha Prime was officially revealed.
  • Nezha Prime is the first Warframe to be showcased in-game to players via the Tenno Relay diorama showroom before his full release, on October 27, 2020.
  • Nezha is the second prime Warframe where their non-primed variants were introduced from Warframe China, with the first being WukongIcon272.png Wukong.

  • Quickly sliding into groups of enemies can reliably disable them.
  • The amount of ground that can be covered in flames can be improved using Sprint Speed mods.
  • Also works as an escape tool to prevent enemies from following you.
  • Can be used to cut off melee units from defense objectives.
  • Briefly tapping slide key allows for additional control over Nezha's momentum while maintaining the additional speed.
  • Choosing a dark energy color makes the visual effect less intrusive.

Blazing Chakram
Hurl a flaming ring that sets enemies ablaze making them vulnerable to any damage. Flaming enemies drop Restorative Orbs on death. Charge to amplify the power of the ring, and reactivate to instantly travel to the ring's location.

20% / 25% / 30% / 35% (energy orb chance)
30 m (uncharged throw distance)
70 m (charged throw distance)

Info
  • Nezha throws his Universe Ring 30 meters towards the target aim, which will ricochet off enemies or objects before returning, hitting up to 6 enemies. The chakram deals 100 / 150 / 200 / 250 DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage to enemies it touches and marks them for 10 / 11 / 13 / 15 seconds, with guaranteed DmgFireSmall64.png Heat status effect. Marked enemies take 60% / 75% / 85% / 100% increased damage from all sources and have a 50% / 65% / 80% / 100% chance to drop a Health Orb, and a 20% / 25% / 30% / 35% chance to drop an Energy Orb, upon death.
  • Holding down the ability key (default 2 ) will charge the chakram to increase its damage, up to 400 / 600 / 800 / 1000 DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage, and make it fly ~70 meters in a straight line forward and backward. Can hit multiple enemies in one throw.
    • Boosted damage is affected by Ability Strength.
    • Boosted throw distance is not affected by Ability Range.
    • Charging animation is not affected by Mod TT 20px.png Natural Talent and Mod TT 20px.png Speed Drift.
    • When throwing a charged chakram, enemies will be rag-dolled by it for a few meters.
      • A charged Blazing Chakram loses its ability to ricochet off walls and enemies.
  • If Blazing Chakram is activated again by pressing the ability key (default 2 ) while the chakram is in flight, Nezha will teleport to its current location.
    • Nezha cannot teleport to the chakram if it is inside or too close to a wall.
    • Teleporting will not consume energy.
  • Bouncing from surfaces can extend the chakram's travel distance.
  • The chakram's position is indicated as a waypoint onscreen and as a circular icon on the minimap.
  • Both uncharged and charged throws are capable of hitting the same enemy multiple times.
  • Blazing Chakram can be detonated mid-flight similarly to a throwing weapon
    • This does not appear to deal damage—its primary function appears to be to force the early return of the Chakram.
    • This requires a melee weapon to be equipped. Pressing the heavy attack key while a melee weapon is equipped and the Chakram is still on an outbound path will cause the Chakram to "explode", then return to Nezha.
  • Ability Synergy:
    • If FireWalker130xDark.png Fire Walker is active when using Blazing Chakram's teleportation, Fire Walker will overheat at the destination and deal 500 / 750 / 1000 / 1250 DmgFireSmall64.png Heat damage, with a 10% / 25% / 50% / ? DmgFireSmall64.png Heat status chance, within a radius of 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 meters, as well as leaving a lingering ring of Fire Walker's flames.
      • Explosion damage is affected by Ability Strength.
      • Damage does not bypass obstacles in the environment and diminishes with distance.
      • Explosion radius is affected by Ability Range.
      • Fire Walker will stay active after teleporting.
    • Blazing Chakram striking an enemy impaled by DivineSpears130xDark.png Divine Spears produces a second chakram, which fires at a nearby enemy.
      • Secondary chakrams can create additional ones off of speared enemies.
      • A charged throw will also produce charged chakrams, which will not seek out enemies or bounce, and often fly off in random directions. Therefore, uncharged throws are much more well-suited to generate many chakrams and ramp up Mod TT 20px.png Reaping Chakram's bonus damage.

Augment
ReapingChakram.png
Main article: Reaping Chakram

Reaping Chakram is a Warframe Augment Mod for NezhaIcon272.png Nezha that causes the projectile of BlazingChakram130xDark.png Blazing Chakram to increase the caused damage for each enemy hit by the attack. Additionally it increases the spawn percentage for health orbs for each enemy hit.


Rank Damage Health Orb Drop Chance Cost
0 1.25x 0.10x 6
1 1.50x 0.15x 7
2 1.75x 0.20x 8
3 2.00x 0.25x 9

Tips & Tricks
  • The applied vulnerability mark is independent of the ring's damage and can be applied to enemies immune to Blazing Chakram's damage such as Arson Eximus, enemies with invulnerability phases, or to most bosses that are immune warframe abilities (with the notable exception of Eidolons).
  • The mark is removed in nullifier fields, however its duration is not decreased by effects such as Ancient Disruptor auras or the Executioner's natural debuff reduction.
  • The initial ignite proc does not have increased damage from the vulnerability mark, however the remaining procs do benefit. The mark damage multiplier counts as a Heat Mod Multiplier in the standard DmgFireSmall64.png Heat proc damage calculation and each ignite tick therefore = Chakram Damage × [(1 + Vulnerability Multiplier) / 2 ].
  • A Chakram hitting an already marked enemy will have its damage increased, however, the subsequent ignite procs are calculated based on the unincreased damage (i.e. the procs cannot double-dip on the vulnerability mark).
  • After activating Divine Spears and throwing a Chakram at impaled enemies, 2 additional rings are created and will bounce off enemies. If the Chakram is charged, the extra rings will have similarly increased damage and behavior.
  • The two different Restorative Orb drop chances are calculated separately from each other and from the enemies standard drop table, as such it is possible for a single enemy to drop multiple orbs, even several of the same type.
  • Enemies killed instantly by the Chakram's damage will still benefit from the additional restorative orb drop chances, even though the vulnerability mark is applied after the initial damage instance.

Bugs
  • In games with moderately high latency, the chakram may veer wildly off-course or be seen shaking in midair while moving slowly, then disappear before striking an enemy. This is likely caused by the ring's position being calculated host-side, rather than client-side.

    Duration:N/A
    Range:1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 m
    Misc:3 s (invulnerability duration)

    Info
    • Nezha summons a fiery ring that encircles him, granting full immunity to status effects, and absorbing 90% of all incoming damage. The ring starts with 500 / 650 / 800 / 1000 base health, to which 115% / 125% / 175% / 250% of Nezha's total armor is added as bonus health. Upon activation, the ring is invulnerable for 3 seconds, during this time all incoming damage it takes is multiplied by 250% and added to its total health. Enemies that wander within 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 meters of Nezha are continuously staggered and dealt 50 / 75 / 100 / 125 DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage every second. Warding Halo cannot be refreshed while it is active, and only expires when its health is depleted or when it is dispelled.
      • Damage reduction affects Overshield, Shield and Health.
      • Warding Halo's Base health, armor multiplier, absorption multiplier and damage per second, are affected by Ability Strength.
      • Warding Halo's health uses the following expression when accounting for Ability Strength:
        Modified Health = (Base Health + Armor Multiplier × (Health Conversion Armor + Nezha's Base Armor × (1 + Armor Bonus)) + Absorbed Damage × Absorption Multiplier) × (1 + Ability Strength)
        • As an example, with a maxed Mod TT 20px.png Steel Fiber and Mod TT 20px.png Intensify, and one stack on Mod TT 20px.png Health Conversion, a rank-3 Warding Halo will have an initial health of (1000 + (2.5 × (450 + 190 × (1 + 1.1)))) × (1 + 0.3) = 4,059.25 before absorbing damage.
      • Invulnerability duration is not affected by Ability Duration.
      • Stagger radius is affected by Ability Range.
      • While active, a health counter is displayed on the lower-right of the HUD, above the ability icons, indicating how much damage absorption is left.
      • DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash damage instances immediately affect enemies as they enter the stun radius.
      • Status effect immunity includes crowd-controlling effects such as knockdowns and staggers. Energy drains from Ancient Disruptors, including the small amounts of energy they drain with each melee attack, Eximus energy drains and the speed reduction caused by the mucus of Tar-Mutalist MOAs are not resisted by Warding Halo.
      • Cast animation of ~1 second is affected by Mod TT 20px.png Natural Talent and Mod TT 20px.png Speed Drift.
        • Casting this ability makes Nezha stop all other actions, including movement. However, players can perform a running slide and hold it before casting in order to maintain momentum during the animation.
    • Warding Halo will release a wave of heat outward when it expires, inflicting all surrounding enemies with 100% DmgFireSmall64.png Heat status effect, and making Nezha invulnerable for 1 second.
      • Warding Halo cannot be cast while active, but can be recast during this expiry invulnerability period.
      • Damage taken from the last hit which exceeds the health of Warding Halo will still transfer over in full to Nezha's health, potentially killing them (if strong enough), before the 1 second invulnerability can take effect.
    • Blocking with a melee weapon will not reduce damage taken to Warding Halo's Health, but will reduce damage taken from the 10% that is not absorbed by Warding Halo.

    • Using Mod TT 20px.png Health Conversion to gain armor stacks before casting Warding Halo, greatly increases its base health without requiring as much Power Strength.
    • Be careful against enemies like Mutalist Osprey. Their toxin cloud for example deals damage to your Warding Halo and to your HP, bypassing your shield. This can kill you very easily, even with a full Warding Halo.

    Divine Spears
    Impale nearby enemies on spears that erupt from the below. Activate again to slam surviving enemies back into the ground.
    Strength:150 / 300 / 450 / 600 (impale DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage)
    150 / 300 / 450 / 600 (slam DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage)
    Duration:6 / 8 / 10 / 12 s
    Range:10 / 13 / 16 / 19 m

    Info
    • Spears of light burst from the ground, impaling enemies within a radius of 10 / 13 / 16 / 19 meters and inflicting 150 / 300 / 450 / 600 DmgPunctureSmall64.png Puncture damage. Impaled enemies are incapacitated for 6 / 8 / 10 / 12 seconds. If Divine Spears is deactivated by pressing the ability key again (default 4 ), impaled enemies are slammed to the ground and dealt 150 / 300 / 450 / 600 DmgImpactSmall64.png Impact damage.
    • Impaled enemies are considered knocked down, and thus can trigger melee ground finisher attacks.
      • Impaled enemies ignore nullification. The divine spear will not be nullified, so long as Nezha himself is not nullified.
      • Enemies protected by Ancient Healer auras cannot be impaled, thereby making Divine Spears less effective against Corrupted and Infested without the use of weapons that can easily proc radiation.
      • Impaled enemies cannot prevent Tenno from capturing an Interception point.
    • Ability Synergy: BlazingChakram130xDark.png Blazing Chakram striking an enemy impaled by Divine Spears produces a second chakram, which fires at a nearby enemy.
      • Secondary chakrams can create additional ones off of speared enemies.
      • A charged throw will also produce charged chakrams, which will not seek out enemies or bounce, and often fly off in random directions. Therefore, uncharged throws are much more well-suited to generate many chakrams and ramp up Mod TT 20px.png Reaping Chakram's bonus damage.

    Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

    • Armor Change:
      • Nezha: 175 to 190
      • Why: The conversation surrounding Arcane Guardian led to a significant review of Armor stats on Warfarmes. The Majority of Warframes received an increase in the Armor stat to increase survivability. Compounded with Shield Gating and the numerous other changes covered, we expect a much more fair feeling playing field for all Warframes.

    Update 23.8 (2018-09-12)

    NEZHA REVISITED

    [DE]Pablo has been working hard on tweaks, with two primary goals in mind:

    • Making Nezha feel smoother and more fluid in gameplay
    • Increasing Nezha’s power overall by giving him added team support value and internal synergies

    With that said, let’s break down the changes in order!

    • Increased max rank health from 225 to 375
    • Decreased max rank shields from 225 to 150
    FIRE WALKER
    • Changed from a channeling ability to duration-based.
      • Why? As a channeled ability, keeping Firewalker active would block all energy regeneration. Making the ability a single cast with a long moddable duration solves that problem, encouraging more frequent use.
    • Teleporting will no longer cancel Fire Walker.
    • Cast animation changed to a small hop that doesn’t restrict movement.
    Walker.gif
    BLAZING CHAKRAM
    • Cast animation has been sped up, and no longer restricts movement.
    • Enemies hit by the disc are “marked” for a moddable duration, greatly increasing the damage they take from all sources. Marked enemies have a chance to drop energy orbs.
      • Why? Adds great team value to Nezha’s kit - increasing damage taken helps all allies, and energy orb drops enable frequent recasting.
    Loopthrow.gif
    • Killing enemies while they are marked will now produce healing orbs, instead of the current healing pulse.
      • Why? The current radial heal is invisible and very small, usually only benefitting players in melee range - most players don’t even know it’s there! Health orbs make the result more visible, while introducing other mod synergies.
    • Increased the number of targets the disc will try to hit before recalling, and improved some cases of faulty lock-on targeting.
    • Slight improvements to Blazing Chakram’s enemy tracking.
    • Added a charged throw, causing the Chakram to fly straight forwards and backwards, dealing extra damage to enemies in its path.
      • Why? For a consistent flight path unaffected by lock-on targeting, use the new charged throw. Great for hallways!
    Loopthrowagain.gif
    WARDING HALO
    • HUD now shows a custom counter, indicating how much damage absorption is left, instead of a simple numeric percentage
    HaloUI.png
    • Warding Halo now only blocks 90% of damage taken. Will still block status effects and other procs.
      • Why? When considering Nezha’s revamped kit, he is excellent at mitigating enemy damage - Firewalker and Divine Spears offer great area/crowd control, Blazing Chakram offers healing and self-sustain, and his outstanding movement can make the player a hard target to hit. In this context, Warding Halo’s 100% damage resistance was completely overshadowing his other options - why heal or CC when I never take any damage?
    With 90% damage resistance, Nezha is still very capable of tanking, but encouraged to rely on his other tools to avoid getting overwhelmed. Taking minimal health damage allows for synergy with Blazing Chakram’s health orbs, not to mention new modding avenues like Equilibrium, Health Conversion and various Arcanes. The change also allows us to improve survivability in other ways, such as the increased health pool, and major Warding Halo quality-of-life buffs listed below.
    • Damage absorption invulnerability phase now begins as soon as you cast the ability. Cast animation also sped up.
    Warding1.gif
    • Increased incoming damage multiplier during invulnerability. Damage absorption multiplier also now scales with power strength.
    • When the health of the Warding Halo runs out, it will do an AoE heat status effect and give you a short period of invulnerability.
      • Why? This gives the player precious time to react, helping survivability while controlling the enemies immediately around you. Your next Warding Halo can be recast during this window to ensure you’re always protected!
    • Players will receive a HUD icon indicating the Health of a Safeguard Halo they received from Nezha.
    Warding.gif

    (Brief aside: as a Nezha main, I was originally skeptical of the 90% damage resistance change, and I suspect many readers will be skeptical too. However, playing the rework myself quickly changed my mind. The various buffs really outweigh the negatives, making Nezha much more capable in a supporting crowd-controller role. If you doubt just how potent 90% damage resistance can be, try out Gara’s Splinter Storm at 130% or more power strength!)

    DIVINE SPEARS
    • Sped up the casting/slamming animations, while removing the mandatory slam at the end of the Spears’ duration. (slam can still be triggered manually)
    • Hitting a speared enemy with Blazing Chakram produces a second Chakram, which fires at a nearby enemy.

    On top of all that, Nezha’s sounds have been remastered, adding new auditory cues for important moments, like Blazing Chakrams returning to the player, or Warding Halos running out of health!
