Mind control and psychic attacks make Nyx a very dangerous foe. Her ability to reach into enemy consciousness and manipulate their behavior can turn the tide of the battle.

This is Nyx, manipulator of minds.

On her own or with a group, Nyx can turn the tide of battle in her favor.

Release Date: January 29th, 2013

Scramble the enemy's psyche with her subliminal touch, turning friend into foe as chaos ensues. Manipulate the mind as Nyx to dominate their will, cripple their defenses, and reflect their collective strikes with her psychic prowess. Nyx infiltrated the enemy's ranks in Update 6.0 (2013-01-29).

Acquisition

Nyx's main blueprint can be purchased from the Market. Nyx's component blueprints can be obtained from defeating Phorid on assassination missions that appear during an Infested Invasion.
Item Source Chance Expected Nearly Guaranteed
Helmet.png Neuroptics Blueprint Phorid Manifestation 38.72% ~ 2 Kills 14 ± 4 Kills
Chassis.png Chassis Blueprint Phorid Manifestation 38.72% ~ 2 Kills 14 ± 4 Kills
Systems.png Systems Blueprint Phorid Manifestation 22.56% ~ 4 Kills 27 ± 9 Kills

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)

Trivia

  • Nyx is the name of the Greek goddess of the night.
    • During development, Nyx originally went by the name of "Jade".
  • Apart from the helmet and gender, Nyx's overall design is almost identical to ExcaliburIcon272.png Excalibur. This was the result of a scrapped attempt to create alternative genders to the Warframes during the pre-alpha stages of the game.
    • This prototype Nyx was practically identical to Excalibur, with the only major difference being the body shape. Prototype-Nyx's base helmet (which was no different from Excalibur's base helmet design-wise) would occasionally reveal itself in earlier builds of the game, replacing the icon of the Menticide Helmet blueprint during extraction.

      Screenshot of the Prototype/Menticide icon bug.

    • For a long time, the silhouette Chaos130xDark.png Chaos projected in front of affected enemies also used prototype-Nyx's helmet, rather than her current base helmet. This was eventually corrected in Update 12.4 (2014-03-05).
  • Nyx is similar in design to Nadia Sudek's Nemesis armor from Dark Sector.
    • The Nyx Nemesis Skin further reveals the fact that Nyx was most likely based on Nemesis.
  • Oddly, Nyx's default color scheme has three separate energy colors, the first being the deep blue energy seen within her Warframe such as the lights upon her helmet, the second being on minor effects within abilities and along her wrists and the last being for major power effects, a bright orange glow as seen around enemies within MindControl130xDark.png Mind Control.
    • All of these will be set to one custom color if her energy color is changed.
  • When using MindControl130xDark.png Mind Control on an enemy, the Tenno script that appears and floats around the enemy says "Obey".

Vaultings

  • On August 9th, 2016, it was announced that Nyx Prime, alongside HikouPrime.png Hikou Prime and ScindoPrime.png Scindo Prime, would enter the Prime Vault and be retired from the reward tables on August 23rd, 2016. Any preexisting components, relics or fully-built frames will remain as is.
  • Nyx Prime, alongside HikouPrime.png Hikou Prime, ScindoPrime.png Scindo Prime, Rhino PrimeIcon272.png Rhino Prime, BoltorPrime.png Boltor Prime, and AnkyrosPrime.png Ankyros Prime, resurfaced from the Prime Vault, and was accessible from July 24th, 2018 to September 25th, 2018.
  • Nyx Prime resurfaced again together with the same line-up from July 16th, 2019 to September 3rd, 2019.
  • Nyx Prime's relics were permanently unvaulted as of Update 29.10 (2021-03-19), being only obtainable through Abandoned Derelict Caches in Corpus Railjack missions.
  • Nyx Prime resurfaced again together with the same line-up from August 12th, 2021 to November 16th, 2021 and January 11th, 2022 to Feburary, 15th, 2022 (gap was due to Prime Resurgence).

Notes

Notes

  • Nyx Prime, compared to NyxIcon272.png Nyx:
    • Higher Shields (125/375 vs. 100/300)
    • Higher Armor (125 vs. 100)
    • Higher Sprint Speed (1.12 vs. 1.1)
    • Different Polarities (Madurai Pol.svgNaramon Pol.svgVazarin Pol.svg vs. Madurai Pol.svgNaramon Pol.svg)
  • As a Prime Warframe, Nyx 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.

Trivia

  • Nyx Prime was the first Prime Warframe to have two enhanced stats, at the time she received increased Armor and Sprint speed over her normal version. When Update 17.0 (2015-07-31) launched she received an additional boost in Shields.
  • Enemies affected by Nyx Prime's Chaos130xDark.png Chaos now show a Nyx Prime holding a BratonPrime.png Braton Prime instead of a regular NyxIcon272.png Nyx holding a standard Braton.png Braton.

MindControlModU14.jpeg Nyx Mind Control2.png
ENERGY:

KEY

Mind Control
Nyx invades the psyche of a target, confusing enemies and making them fight for the Tenno cause. Targets then fired upon by Nyx receive a damage multiplier.
Strength:N/A
Duration:15 / 20 / 25 / 45 s
Range:20 / 40 / 50 / 60 m
Misc:3 s (stun duration)
100 % (damage immunity)
4 s (damage conversion duration)
1 (max target limit)
Subsumable to Helminth

Info
  • Nyx fully inhabits the mind of a single enemy within a range of 20 / 40 / 50 / 60 meters, stunning it for 3 seconds then forcing it to fight for the Tenno faction for 15 / 20 / 25 / 45 seconds. While controlled, the affected target is enveloped within a psychic barrier that renders it completely invulnerable to damage from allied and enemy factions. For the next 4 seconds after activation, Nyx herself can empower the controlled target by attacking it; any damage dealt by Nyx onto the controlled target during this period is absorbed and converted into a percentage damage bonus for the target, lasting for the ability's remaining duration. Only 1 enemy can be controlled at a time; release the target early by pressing the ability key again (default 1 ).
    • Control duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Cast range is affected by Ability Range.
    • Damage immunity, damage conversion rate and duration, and max target limit are not affected by mods.
    • Percent damage bonus conversion rate is given by:
      • Enemy armor is ignored, as well as the target's health, armor, and shield type damage modifiers.
      • Damage from physical and elemental damage mods is not taken into account.
      • Base damage (e.g., Mod TT 20px.png Serration), faction damage (e.g., Mod TT 20px.png Bane of Grineer), and multishot (e.g., Mod TT 20px.png Split Chamber) mods are taken into account.
      • Critical Hits are taken into account.
      • Enemy weakspots are taken into account, including the critical multiplier weakspot bonus.
      • Damaging procs (e.g., DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash, DmgFireSmall64.png Heat, and DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin) applied to the target before casting Mind Control will contribute to the damage conversion.
      • The damage bonus from DmgViralSmall64.png Viral and DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic are not taken into account.
      • Unalerted enemies that are Mind Controlled will be susceptible to Stealth Damage Multipliers from melee attacks over the ability's duration.
    • Target is initially stunned after cast, allowing Nyx to attack it while it is immobile.
    • The mind-controlled target is immune to damage from all sources, but is still susceptible to negative Status Effects. During Mind Control, all damage dealt by Nyx and her allies on the target will be stored and inflicted in full once the ability ends. Damage dealt by enemies on the target is only nullified and not stored.
    • The damage bonus percentage from converted damage is displayed in the HUD beside Nyx's shield and health indicators.
    • Mind-controlled enemy will not hinder mission progress (e.g. block Interception nodes, stall Defense waves, etc.)
    • If the target dies before Nyx finishes her casting animation, energy used for Mind Control will be refunded.
  • Mind-controlled targets will teleport to Nyx's location if she gets too far away, except those on Ramparts.
  • Mind-controlled targets use their abilities to the benefit of the Tenno and to the detriment of their former allies. For example:
    • The mines dropped by Mine Ospreys (including mines placed before the ability was used) will not hurt Nyx and her allies, but will hurt the Osprey's former allies.
    • Security Cameras will ignore everything and never go into the alerted state. Turrets can behave unpredictably (using Mind Control on Turrets will make them fight for Nyx, but only when a camera activates them; in other words, Turrets can deactivate if the camera is destroyed or goes into the unalerted state.)
    • Shield Ospreys will project shields on allies and defense objectives.
    • Brood Mothers, Drahk Masters, Hyekka Masters, Fusion MOAs, Seekers, Sniper Crewmen and Techs will spawn units that fight for the Tenno's side until the ability ends.
      • Drahks and Hyekkas spawned by their mind controlled masters will become hostile again if the duration ends, or the master is killed.
    • Mind-controlled Ancients will grant their Auras to nearby Tenno:
  • Any active Comba and Scrambus disruption auras will remain active, though subsequent auras will not affect Nyx or her allies.
    • Fog Comba and Scrambus disruption auras will not remove mind-control from its target but will prevent the use of the ability until the disruption wears off.
  • While Nullifier Crewmen can be Mind Controlled after their nullification field is disabled, they will dispel themselves upon it regenerating; the Projector Drones should therefore be destroyed.
  • Mind Control will not work on bosses. However, the ability still applies a short duration stun.
    • This is also true for Syndicate hunters and Lynx Turrets.
    • Some mini bosses like Acolytes can be affected, though with significantly decreased duration and due to their innate DR stored damage dealt when it ends will be reduced.
  • Mind Control overrides the effect of Chaos130xDark.png Chaos on the selected target but will not be overridden by Chaos.
  • Eximus enemies under Mind Control will focus their attacks on enemies instead. They will still project their damaging special auras (such as a large fire wave) but these will not damage allies over the ability's duration. In particular useful terms, Arctic Eximus will slightly slow down all other enemies in range while also providing protection for itself with its snow-globe-like shield.
  • When Mind Control is cast, an energy tether briefly links Nyx to her target as a visual indicator. The mind-controlled target will be marked with symbols of the Lotus for the ability's duration along with waves of energy flowing over them, affected by Nyx's chosen energy colors.
  • Toggleable since Hotfix 15.5.5 (2014-12-01). Recasting Mind Control prematurely ends the effect.
  • Enemies under mind control can be healed by friendly sources, to the benefit or detriment to the team:
  • DmgRadiationSmall64.png Radiation will prematurely end the ability when it procs on Mind Controlled enemies.
  • Mind Controlled enemies can hack disabled Bursas.
  • Rarely, Mind Control will reverse an enemies ability to set off alarms, and if by a rare chance the enemy decides to "activate" already activated alarms, the enemy will actually turn them off (including lifting a complete lockdown into a system wide alert instead). (not sure if this happens anymore as it was already rare before)
  • Mod TT 20px.png Safeguard can be cast on mind controlled targets.
  • Subsuming Nyx to the Helminth will offer Mind Control and its augments to be used by other Warframes.

Augment
MindFreak2.png
Main article: Mind Freak

Mind Freak is a Warframe Augment Mod for NyxIcon272.png Nyx that makes enemies under the effects of MindControl130xDark.png Mind Control deal additional attack damage.


Rank Damage Bonus Cost
0 200% 6
1 300% 7
2 400% 8
3 500% 9

Tips & Tricks
  • Mind Control can be used to both neutralize powerful enemies like Heavy Gunners and Techs, and use them as temporary allies.
  • Leech Eximus Enemies can make powerful allies as they can both (usually) deal large amounts of damage with their extended survivability, and withstand most damage taken that is returned after the ability expires.
  • In Defense missions, casting Mind Control on the last enemy in a wave will buy time for the objective's shields and health to regenerate; this is more useful with improved Ability Duration.
  • Mind Controlling any variant of Corpus Tech that has deployed ospreys will also make the Ospreys friendly, regardless of how many it has deployed.

Bugs
  • Mind Controlled targets will still complete Interception objectives, and will complete them for the enemy team.
  • Mind Controlled targets have reduced status chance. This can be seen easily with the Napalm as it's normally 100% status fireballs rarely proc heat status effects.
  • Shield Ospreys spawned from Mind Controlled enemies will stay friendly when the target dies.

    Psychic Bolts
    Nyx launches a cluster of force bolts at enemies, using telekinesis to adjust flight paths and seek nearby targets. Hits strip some enemy defenses.
    Strength:20 / 40 / 60 / 80 % (defense reduction)
    ? / ? / ? / 20 % (Infested speed penalty)
    Duration:5 / 7 / 9 / 11 s

    60 m (targeting range)
    100 % (aura nullification)
    100 % (defense reduction cap)

    Info
    • Nyx launches 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 flying bolts of telekinetic energy toward her aiming reticle, which psychically seek out nearby enemies within her line of sight and 60 meters. Each psychic bolt dissipates and applies a Panel.png Stagger on successful hit, weakening its target for 5 / 7 / 9 / 11 seconds. Affected enemies have 20% / 40% / 60% / 80% of their maximum Armor and Shields temporarily removed, while Infested enemies' movement speed are also slowed by ?% / ?% / ?% / 20% for the duration. Ancient and some Eximus enemies also cannot emit their defensive auras while affected.
      • Defense reduction and Infested speed penalty are affected by Ability Strength.
      • Debuff duration is affected by Ability Duration.
      • Number of bolts, targeting range, and aura nullification are not affected by mods.
      • Defense reduction is capped at 100%, achievable with a 25% increase in Ability Strength at max ability rank.
      • Auras disabled by Psychic Bolts include the Ancient Healer, Ancient Disruptor, Toxic Ancient, and the defensive auras of Infested Eximus units.
      • Psychic Bolts can only do one of the following to an enemy at once, with the priority following the list order:
        1. Remove armor and shields
        2. Disable an Ancient's aura
        3. Disable an Eximus's aura.
      • Bolts phase through obstacles in the environment.
      • Bolts will disappear after traveling for a few seconds if they do not strike targets.
      • Number of bolts in flight is shown on the ability icon (e.g. 6x). Once the bolts expire, the number on the ability icon will indicate how many enemies are currently debuffed.
    • Psychic Bolts will not target enemies behind obstacles in the environment unless Nyx has line of sight, or unless the enemy is aware of Nyx within a short period of time (e.g., an enemy that spots Nyx and runs out of view can still be targeted by Psychic Bolts if the ability is used within a small time frame).
    • Can be recasted while enemies are still debuffed. Recasting will cancel the effect on previous remaining target(s).
    • Targeted enemies will briefly radiate energy as a visual indicator, and an audio cue will be played.
    • Psychic Bolts is a one-handed action. As such, it can be used while performing various maneuvers and actions without interruption.

    Tips & Tricks
    • At 125% Ability Strength, debuff amount will reach 100%, which causes targets' defenses to be completely removed.
    • Psychic Bolts synergizes well with damage types that are effective against health classes (e.g. Cloned Flesh and Flesh), like DmgSlashSmall64.png Slash and/or DmgViralSmall64.png Viral.
      • On the other hand, DmgCorrosiveSmall64.png Corrosive or DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic, which is effective against armor/shield classes, gains less benefit from Psychic Bolts' full debuff.
    • A max rank Mod TT 20px.png Augur Secrets will put your Ability Strength at 124%, stripping defences by 99%. This allows you to significantly weaken enemy defences, whilst still benefitting from the armor/shield class damage bonuses.

    Strength:N/A
    Duration:10 / 15 / 20 / 25 s
    Range:15 / 20 / 22 / 25 m

    Info
    • Nyx causes enemies within 15 / 20 / 22 / 25 meters to perceive their allies as Tenno for 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 seconds. Affected enemies will indiscriminately attack whoever is closest for the duration.
    • Affected enemies are given raised threat levels.
    • Will only stun Bosses and has no other effect on them.
    • Shield Ospreys will stop projecting shields and simply close up and fly around until the effect is over, and unaffected Shield Ospreys will not shield affected enemies.
    • Ancient Healers will still emit healing pulses but will not heal anything but themselves.
    • The auras of Eximus units will negatively impact everyone within range, ally or enemy, for the duration of the ability (for example, the aura of the Arctic Eximus will slow down anyone in range).
    • An illusion of Nyx wielding a Braton.png Braton (or a BratonPrime.png Braton Prime in the case of Nyx PrimeIcon272.png Nyx Prime) is visible on affected units, reflecting how enemies perceive each other.
      • The illusion will reflect the alternate helmet and skin Nyx has equipped, if any.
      • If Chaos is cast upon a ceiling-mounted Turret or Security Camera, the illusion will be upside-down.
    • Unlike MindControl130xDark.png Mind Control, enemies affected by Chaos will target Tenno if they are too close, and their attacks can still harm the team. Likewise, cameras and drones will still be able to detect players with normal detection behaviors.
    • Chaos can be ended prematurely by killing all affected enemies.
    • Can be recast while active.
      • Only one instance of Chaos can be active at a given time, making enemies who are currently affected lose its effects.
      • Reapplies both the stun and confusion.

    Tips & Tricks
    • Chaos halts the damage mitigation supplied by Ancient Healers and Corrupted Ancients, allowing the Tenno to dispatch of groups protected by those units without having to deal with the Ancients first.
    • In Interception missions, enemies affected by Chaos will less likely to attempt to capture the towers, and even stop if they are capturing any tower. This is particularly useful when doing Interception solo or with a nonfull squad.

    Bugs
  • If cast near an Infested Tumor, Nyx's projection will be substantially larger than it should be.
  • Swarm-Mutalist MOAs swarm will still aid Infested even whilst Chaos is active (Possibly intended).

    0.025% (damage converted to weapon damage bonus)
    Duration:8 s (Weapon Damage bonus)
    Range:5 / ? / ? / 15 m

    Info
    • Nyx enters a meditative state that allows her to absorb incoming damage and become completely immune to all forms of crowd control. A passive damage threshold is created that increases by 160 / 170 / 180 / 200 DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic damage every second (e.g., an Absorb lasting 10 seconds will inflict a minimum of 2000 DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic damage at max rank). This threshold has a minimum damage potential of 800 / 900 / 1000 / 1500 DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic damage. If the total amount of absorbed damage is greater than the damage threshold when Nyx leaves her meditative state, all absorbed damage is inflicted to every enemy in a 5 / ? / ? / 15 meter explosion of psychic energy.
      • Minimum damage and passive damage gain are affected by Ability Strength but absorbed damage is not.
      • 100% of all incoming damage can be absorbed.
        • Critical Hits from enemies, but not allies have their critical damage multiplier doubled before being absorbed.
      • Absorbed damage is not converted to DmgMagneticSmall64.png Magnetic damage, and retains the original damage composition.
      • Explosion damage bypasses obstacles in the environment and diminishes with distance. Affected enemies suffer a Knockdown.
      • Explosion radius and orb size is affected by Ability Range.
      • Explosion radius is affected by damage absorbed, up to a maximum of 50m.
      • The invulnerability is extended to Sentinels or MOA companions, but not to pets.
    • Absorb drains 7 / 6 / 5 / 4 energy per second, and will remain active so long as Nyx has energy. An additional 8 energy is drained for every 1000 damage that's absorbed. Absorb will end if Nyx runs out of energy, or if deactivated by pressing the ability key again (default 4 ).
    • Absorb converts into an additive weapon damage bonus that activates when the ability is released, lasting 8 seconds, or until the ability is used again.
      • Damage from physical and elemental damage mods is not taken into account.
      • This effect has an upper cap of 400% additive weapon damage (64,000 damage absorbed).
      • Bonus is additive to Mod TT 20px.png Serration, Mod TT 20px.png Hornet Strike, and similar bonuses to the previous.
    • Nyx is immune to all effects by enemies. This does not include the energy drain from Energy Leech Eximus, which can still constantly drain energy as they are near.
    • Nyx's evasion passive is disabled while Absorb is active.
    • Casting Absorb in the air will cause Nyx to stay suspended until the skill is deactivated.
      • Absorb will stop any movement achieved prior to casting the skill when used in the air.
      • Even after deactivation, no momentum will carry over. Instead, you will drop straight down.
      • This does reset the directional melee, however, and it may be used again to regain some momentum. Used in this manner, Nyx is able to "fly" across tiles so long as she has energy to cast Absorb.
    • After not receiving damage for a short amount of time, the damage counter resets. This will not reset Absorb's total accumulated damage, however.
    • Nyx's threat level is raised while Absorb is active.
    • Shields are allowed to recharge freely while in the absorb state, whether Nyx is being attacked or not.
    • If cast while falling off a ledge, Nyx will return from her original location and release Absorb immediately.
    • Arcanes that require the player to receive damage to trigger (such as ArcaneAegis64x.png Arcane Agility) can trigger while under effects of Absorb.

    Tips & Tricks
    • Allies can contribute to the damage absorbed, dramatically increasing damage output.
    • It is not advisable to use this skill with the sentinel Shade. Shade will cloak Nyx during the Absorb period most of the time, whether the enemy is crowded around Nyx or not. As such, no damage will be absorbed as the enemy cannot see Nyx. During solo, the skill works fine still, as there are no teammates to draw enemy attention away.
    • Using this ability while on an Ice Trap in the void will greatly reduce energy drained.
    • Some user functions are still available even after Absorb is cast (thought it's not clear if this is intended functionality):
      • Weapon detonation can still be triggered (ex: Penta.png Penta).
      • If knocked down or downed while casting, Nyx will be able to move and attack during the duration of the ability.
    • Allies that stand inside the absorb bubble are shielded from incoming ranged damage to some degree.
      • This can be a useful way to assist resurrecting an ally in a party of 3 or more.
    • During this ability, Nyx will be in mid-air suspension, instantly stopping her fall speed. This can be an advantage in correcting improper fall timing or while performing coordinated Maneuvers.
      • If Absorb ends in mid-air, in can often perform headshots on nearby enemies.
    • For easy energy management one can use Mod TT 20px.png Equilibrium in combination with Mod TT 20px.png Synth Deconstruct and Mod TT 20px.png Synth Fiber.

    Edit Tab

    Update 31 (2021-12-15)

    • Fixed Mind Controlling a Thrall as Nyx preventing it from being killed by a melee finisher.

    Hotfix 30.9.3 (2021-11-12)

    • Fixed inability to roll while using Nyx’s Assimilate Augment on controller or a custom roll keybind.

    Update 30.9 (2021-11-11)

    NYX ABILITY CHANGES:

    Mind Control

    The thinking behind these changes are fueled by the amount of investment towards this single Target, and having that pay off more in your favor.

    • Base 500 percent Damage increase to the Target itself that you then feed into with your weapons DPS.
    • Increased base Duration to 45 seconds at maximum rank.
    • Mind Controlled Target now teleports to keep up! This acts similar to other allies (Wukong’s twin, etc).

    Psychic Bolts

    While this change is minor and provides more of a visual cue, the goal here was to provide a better presentation / feedback when Psychic Bolts connect with a Target.

    • Added a minor one-time stagger to targets bit by Psychic Bolts.

    Absorb

    • Increased base Range to 15m at max rank.
    • Scaling Range is now capped at 50m (solving for an exploit), ensuring Damage is balanced by Energy Capacity.
    • Nyx’s Assimilate Augment now allows you to roll, similar to Mesa’s Waltz!
    • Nyx’s Absorb stat screen now shows max explosion radius value.
    • Absorbs additive weapon damage bonus now applies to the player's equipped Melee weapon.
    • Minor tweak to the GPU particles to clean them up!

    Hotfix 30.7.6 (2021-09-23)

    • Fixed an issue where you could still do a Mercy kill on a Mind Controlled enemy, except the damage from it was delayed meaning you could perform it over and over.

    Hotfix 29.2.1 (2020-10-01)

    • Fixed a script error when casting Nyx’s Psychic Bolts ability.

    Hotfix 27.4.4 (2020-05-07)

    • Enemy summons can now be mind-controlled by abilities. Previously, there was a mechanic where 'owned' NPCs would not be affected by mind control, but now this only applies to allied owned NPCs (Sentinels, Pets, followers) so that there's no misleading things happening with Mind Control abilities.

    Update 27.4 (2020-05-01)

    • Nyx Ability videos have been added to their respective Arsenals!

    Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

    • Armor Change:
      • Nyx: 15 to 100
      • Nyx Prime: 50 to 125
      • 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.

    Hotfix 25.6.3 (2019-08-14)

    • Fixed Nyx’s Absorb consuming more than its base of 4 Energy per second even when not being attacked.

    Hotfix 24.7.2 (2019-04-17)

    • Fixed Nyx’s Psychic Bolts ability sometimes going silent.

    Hotfix 24.7.0.1 (2019-04-10)

    • Nyx’s Psychic Bolts now have an instant recast which simply selects 6 new targets and despells on older targets automatically.

    Hotfix 24.2.9 (2019-01-18)
    PSYCHIC BOLTS

    • Adding sounds to Psychic Bolts deactivate hold and end - you can dispell this ability by holding '2' by default!
    • Improved Psychic Bolts disabled FX.

    ABSORB

    • Nyx Absorb explosion radius increases based on the Damage Absorbed (capped Nyx to 75m max).
    • Absorb now has 'lingering Absorption' - Nyx's Absorb now converts a % of the Absorbed Damage into a self Damage buff when the ability ends for a limited time, dispelled on recast.
      • Added +400% Damage cap to Nyx Absorb Damage buff.

    Hotfix 24.2.7 (2018-01-09)

    Update 24.2 (2018-12-18)
    Nyx Changes:
    Nyx is the master of psychic manipulation - her abilities are now capable of Debuffing, CC'ing or dealing damage directly through means of psychic energy and manipulation!

    Nyx's abilities have received an audio refresh - new sounds have been added to her powers!

    Passive:

    • Nyx's Passive now causes enemies to miss her more often.
    • Nyx's last Passive was to randomly disarm enemies when hit by powers. Since her revisited kit depends on enemies effectively hitting each other, we changed the passive to make Nyx simply harder to hit.
    • Nyx’s passive ability to make enemies miss will be deactivated when she is using Absorb, meaning no shot will be wasted!

    Mind Control:

    • Mind Control has a 4 second wind up at the start where incoming damage will cause the target's damage output to increase. The stronger your weaponry, the deadlier the output of your victim!
      • Reminder: All damage inflicted to the target will apply once Nyx deactivates Mind Control, or when the Duration runs out.
    • Better 'follow Nyx and attack enemies' AI pass.
    • Mind Control can now be cast while moving, and no longer halts Nyx in her tracks!
    • The cast time for Mind Control has been decreased, so you can better use the 4-second window to ‘power up’ your new minion!

    Psychic Bolts:

    • No longer deals any damage and will temporarily disable Armor & Shield, slow down Infested units, and disable Ancients' Auras.
    • Psychic Bolts can be cast once on up to 6 targets. Kill these targets before you can cast again, OR hold '2' to reset targets and cast again!

    Absorb:

    • Absorb damage type is now based on the damage types it absorbs.
