Compose her song and then conduct the mighty Mandachord, turning bass, beat and melody into an anthem of devastation.

This is Octavia, the melodic, the maestro.

If music be the food of death... play on, Tenno.

Release Date: March 24th, 2017

Rhythmic and imaginative, Octavia conducts her myriad siren songs and ambient anthems through the mystical Mandachord. Entice enemies with musical instruments that inflict melodic maladies, as the Tenno chorus synchronize their rhythm to sound the drums of war. Octavia was composed in Update 20.0 (2017-03-24).

Acquisition

Octavia's main blueprint and the Mandachord are acquired from the Octavia's Anthem quest. The Chassis blueprint is rewarded from the Music Puzzle on Lua. The Neuroptics blueprint is rewarded from Rotation C of Terrorem (Survival), Deimos. The Systems blueprint can be found in the A Rotation Cache of Plato (Crossfire Exterminate), Lua missions.

Cephalon Simaris sells both additional main blueprints for ReputationBlackx64.png 50,000, and the Mandachords for ReputationBlackx64.png 25,000.

Item Source Chance Expected Nearly Guaranteed

Systems.png Systems Blueprint Lua Exterminate Resource Caches / A 22.56% ~ 4 A Caches 27 ± 9 A Caches

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)

Mandachord

Main article: Mandachord

Notes

Trivia

  • [DE]Danielle performed motion capture work for Octavia's animation set as seen during Devstream 86.
  • The Lester B. Pearson School for the Arts provided the sound effects for Octavia's abilities.[1]
  • Octavia's name was announced during PAX East 2017.
  • Octavia's name comes from the word octave, the word for a span of eight diatonic tonal notes that repeat over higher and lower frequency ranges, usually containing the basis for most musical scales. Her name may also have some origin from the Latin name "Octavia", meaning "eighth born".
  • Octavia's Mandachord plays notes in the D Minor Pentatonic scale. "Pent" meaning five, corresponding to the five available notes for the Melody and Bass instruments to select from when composing a song.
  • Lotus' quote, is a reference to the opening scene of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night".
  • The names of Octavia's Corpus-themed instruments all have Greek origins.
  • Octavia is partly unique because two of her component blueprints can only be acquired from side objectives in missions (e.g. Crossfire caches and the Lua music puzzle).

Strike up a symphony of destruction with the mistress of music, Octavia, in her grandest and most spectacular form. Featuring altered mod polarities for greater customization.

When ape pounded flint on flint, some watched the sparks. Others merely danced. Our haunted creations will need drumbeats to drown out the throb of Helminth blood.

Songs to harmonize the long scream. Anthems to elevate their butchery.

But they are owed their struggle, as we are owed entertainment.

Our grand finale. Octavia.

Release Date: February 23rd, 2021

Octavia Prime is the Primed variant of OctaviaIcon272.png Octavia, possessing higher Shields and Energy, and an additional Vazarin Pol.svg polarity. Octavia Prime was released alongside TenoraPrime.png Tenora Prime and PanderoPrime.png Pandero Prime.

Notes

Trivia

  • Octavia Prime is the third Primed Warframe to have Signature Weapons, after Atlas PrimeIcon272.png Atlas Prime and Banshee PrimeIcon272.png Banshee Prime.
  • Octavia Prime is the seventh Primed Warframe whose non-primed variant was unlockable through a quest (Octavia's Anthem), after InarosIcon272.png Inaros, TitaniaIcon272.png Titania, AtlasIcon272.png Atlas, MirageIcon272.png Mirage, LimboIcon272.png Limbo and ChromaIcon272.png Chroma.
  • Octavia Prime's Mandachords on both arms are elongated, unlike those of her non-Primed counterpart, which are perfect semicircles. This does not affect the Mandachord screen in the Arsenal.
  • Octavia Prime has Prime Details, which are jiggling pieces of cloth on her rear. However, they cannot be toggled off when changing her Skin to the Octavia skin.
  • In the Prime trailer, Octavia Prime's helmet & Mandachord Energy flashes in sync with her Resonator. This seems to be for a cinematic purpose only as it is not the case in the game.

Bugs

  • The Helminth cyst is not visible on Octavia Prime, regardless of how big or how small it is.

Passive

OctaviaIcon272.png Octavia creates musical masterpieces from the Mandachord affixed to her arms that empowers her abilities. She possesses various passive mechanics highlighted in the tabs below:

For an in-depth guide to the Mandachord by the developers, please visit Update 20.0 (2017-03-24) patch notes and scroll to the Mandachord section.

The Mandachord is a step sequencer that allows the player to compose unique songs and conduct them in full symphony through Octavia's abilities.

  • To access the Mandachord menu, open the Arsenal in your ship, equip Octavia, click on the Warframe's Appearance tab, and select Mandachord at the bottom-right of the screen.
  • Once inside the Mandachord menu, the player's view will switch to first-person and look downward at the expanded Mandachord on Octavia's left arm.
  • The Mandachord menu comprises of all customization options related to Octavia's abilities.
    • Each ability is affected by a section of the Mandachord: Percussion (Mallet130xDark.png Mallet), Bass (Resonator130xDark.png Resonator), and Melody (Amp130xDark.png Metronome).
    • Instruments enable selection of different soundpacks for each section (see Octavia's media for available purchases). The Adau soundpack is available by default, sporting drums for Percussion, violin for Bass, and choir voices for Melody.
    • Volume Mixer allows volume adjustments for each section. Volume settings will apply during Mandachord customization and to the appropriate abilities during gameplay.
    • Track Isolation enables toggling on or off each section for better audio clarity while composing a song.
    • Loop allows selection of bars 1 through 4 to continuously loop for note changes comparison while composing a song. Additionally, a bar's notes can be copied to another bar, or completely cleared from the selected bar.
    • Composition enables saving new songs, reloading the current song, and loading custom and instrument songs from your playlist.
    • The Mandachord may be paused at any time by clicking the Pause button at the bottom-right corner. Click again to resume.

Casting any ability will inspire Octavia and nearby allies with her music, granting the Inspiration buff that replenishes 1 energy per second for 30 seconds. Allies within 15 meters will receive the Inspiration buff.

  • Octavia recasting any ability will also refresh the active Inspiration buff's duration.
  • Inspiration buff icon is displayed with a duration timer next to the shield and health indicator at the top-right of the HUD.

Main article: Mallet (edit)
Mallet.png ResonatorIcon.png
ENERGY:

KEY

Mallet
Rhythmically beats damage into nearby enemies and draws their fire. Damage inflicted on the Mallet increases its lethality.
Strength:1x / 1.5x / 2x / 2.5x (damage multiplier)
Duration:8 / 12 / 16 / 20 s
Range:5 / 6 / 8 / 10 m
Misc:1 (limit of mallets)

Info
  • Octavia throws a spherical music device in an arc toward the direction she aims. Upon impact, the device deploys into the Mallet which hovers in place for 8 / 12 / 16 / 20 seconds. The Mallet is an invulnerable hovering orb that continuously plays percussive music, attracting enemies in sight to attack it while absorbing all enemy damage hitting its energy mass. Damage absorbed is accumulated and stored briefly before diminishing over time. Stored damage is converted into DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage, multiplied by 1x / 1.5x / 2x / 2.5x, and rhythmically dealt to all enemies within a radius of 5 / 6 / 8 / 10 meters from the Mallet.
    • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Damage multiplier is affected by Ability Strength.
    • Aura radius is affected by Ability Range.
    • Requires unobstructed line of sight between enemy and Mallet in order to deal damage.
    • Mallet has no target priority, enemies will be likely to shoot the Tenno if they are in line of sight.
    • Mallet's music is in tune with the Percussion section of the Mandachord, drawing from the preset musical notes to determine the percussive aura's damage strength and intervals.
  • Ability Synergy:
    • When Mallet and Resonator130xDark.png Resonator are both active, Resonator will reroute toward the Mallet and carry it around.
      • When carried by Resonator, Mallet actively inflicts damage per beat that continuously increases and stacks over time against enemies inside Mallet's damage radius. This damage instance is separate from the stored damage portion of the ability.
      • Enemies charmed by Resonator are no longer pacified and will attack a carried Mallet to fuel its damage.
      • Resonator increases Mallet's threat level, making enemies outside of Resonator's charm radius more likely to shoot the Mallet instead of the Tenno.
      • If Mallet is placed where Resonator is unable to reach, Resonator will ignore Mallet.
      • Mallet will be dropped to the ground when Resonator expires.
    • When Mallet is hovering over an Metronome130xDark.png Amp field, Mallet's damage and range are doubled.
  • Mallet can be recast while active to create a new Mallet. Octavia is limited to only 1 active Mallet at a time (unless Mod TT 20px.png Partitioned Mallet is equipped).
  • Casting Mallet is not a One-Handed Action and interrupts other actions, but allows movement.
  • Throwing animation speed is affected by Casting Speed, such as from Mod TT 20px.png Natural Talent and Mod TT 20px.png Speed Drift.
  • Mallet will visually emit sound bars from its core to beat-match Percussion notes. Sound bars enlarge and shrink based on Percussion, Bass, and Melody music in the environment.
    • Percussion bars appear from a horizontal ring around the Mallet core, while Bass and Melody bars appear from diagonal rings that layer on top the Mallet when Resonator and Metronome are active and nearby.
  • Mallet's core and percussive aura borders are affected by the chosen Warframe energy color. The percussive aura is briefly visible to allies when Mallet is cast before fading away, and is constantly visible to Octavia herself.

Tips & Tricks
  • Enemies who have both ranged and melee weapons will prefer to use melee.
  • Octavia can position behind Mallet to minimize her chance of taking enemy fire.
    • Be careful of explosive effects drawn to Mallet's center of origin.
  • Mallet's localized control effect is particularly potent against groups caught in narrow choke points.
  • Mallet can damage nullifier bubbles, preventing nulifiers from removing abilities centered within the mallet.

Resonator
Launches a rollerball that charms foes to follow it. Combines with the Mallet to create a roving ball of sonic destruction.
Strength:25 / 50 / 75 / 125 (DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage per beat)
Duration:8 / 12 / 16 / 20 s
Range:3 / 4 / 5 / 6 m (min charm radius)
8 / 10 / 12 / 15 m (max charm radius)
Misc:1 (limit of Resonators)
100 % (stagger on expiry)
Subsumable to Helminth

Info
  • Octavia throws a compact rollerball in an arc toward the direction she aims. Upon impact, the rollerball falls to the ground and deploys into the Resonator that lasts for 8 / 12 / 16 / 20 seconds. The Resonator is an invulnerable Roller Specter that continuously plays bass music as it roams nearby terrain and seeks out enemies. The Resonator emits a charming aura with a minimum radius of 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 meters, causing enemies to cease all aggression and follow the Resonator's travel path until the ability expires; for each enemy charmed, the Resonator's charm radius expands, up to a maximum radius of 8 / 10 / 12 / 15 meters. Charmed enemies rhythmically receive up to 25 / 50 / 75 / 125 DmgBlastSmall64.png Blast damage per beat while they remain in the charm radius.
    • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Minimum and maximum charm radii are affected by Ability Range.
    • Damage per beat is affected by Ability Strength.
    • Resonator's music is in tune with the Bass section of the Mandachord, drawing from the preset musical notes to determine the charm radius' damage strength and intervals.
    • Resonator will detect nearby unaffected enemies and roll toward them, charming enemies as it passes by. As charmed enemies catch up to the Resonator it will attempt to outpace them, laying down an invisible path for them to follow.
    • A blue waypoint marker centered on the Resonator will be visible to Octavia and all allied players, indicating potential enemy presence near it.
    • When the duration expires or the ability is recast, all previously charmed enemies will be staggered.
    • Charm effect from the rollerball does NOT require line of sight, neither to cause the charm (once in range) nor to maintain it once they have been charmed.
    • The expanded ability radius from charming enemies is permanent for the rollerball's remaining lifetime - it will maintain this larger radius until it expires or is recast. In other words, killing charmed enemies will not revert the ability to a smaller radius.
  • Ability Synergy: When Mallet130xDark.png Mallet and Resonator are both active, Resonator will reroute toward the Mallet and carry it around.
    • When carried by Resonator, Mallet actively inflicts damage per beat that continuously increases and stacks over time against enemies inside Mallet's damage radius. This damage instance is separate from the stored damage portion of the ability.
    • Enemies charmed by Resonator are no longer pacified and will attack a carried Mallet to fuel its damage.
    • Resonator increases Mallet's threat level, making enemies outside of Resonator's charm radius more likely to shoot the Mallet instead of the Tenno.
    • If Mallet is placed where Resonator is unable to reach, Resonator will ignore Mallet.
    • Mallet will be dropped to the ground when Resonator expires.
  • Charm Immunity: Strong-willed enemies are immune to the effect of the charm. This includes the following:
    • All named units such as bosses, enemies in The Index, etc.
    • Special units such as Executioner units (except for summoned Hyenas), Specters, Kuva Guardian, assassination Bounty targets, etc.
  • Can be recast while active to create a new Resonator. Octavia is limited to only 1 active Resonator at a time; old Resonator will dissipate when a new one is deployed.
  • Casting Resonator is not a One-Handed Action, as it interrupts other actions but allows movement. Throwing animation speed is affected by Mod TT 20px.png Natural Talent and Mod TT 20px.png Speed Drift.
  • Resonator's energy lights will blink to beat-match Bass notes. Blink frequency is also affected by Percussion and Melody music in the environment.
  • Resonator's appearance and energy colors are affected by Octavia's chosen Warframe appearance and energy colors respectively.
  • Subsuming Octavia to the Helminth will offer Resonator and its augments to be used by other Warframes.

Duration:8 / 12 / 16 / 20 s (ability duration)

5 / 8 / 12 / 15 s (buff duration)

Range:6 / 8 / 10 / 12 m

Info
  • Octavia raises the volume on her surround sound speakers, producing a melodic musical aura with a radius of 6 / 8 / 10 / 12 meters for 8 / 12 / 16 / 20 seconds. Octavia and her allies gain an 10% / 15% / 20% / 35% Armor bonus while inside the melodic aura.
    • Aura radius is affected by Ability Range.
    • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Armor bonus is affected by Ability Strength.
    • Metronome's music is in tune with the Melody section of the Mandachord, drawing from the preset musical notes to determine the melodic aura's note intervals.
    • While the player and allies can hear the melody, Metronome's aura is considered silent to enemies.
  • While inside the melodic aura, Octavia and her allies can perform specific actions in sync to the melodic music to gain various Sync Buffs that can be active simultaneously:

How to Synchronize with Metronome:

  • Each line of Melody notes is visually represented as a concentric ring of light, which begins at the edge of the melodic aura and shrinks toward Octavia’s feet, where the ring disappears as the sound of the notes are played.
  • In order to gain buffs, players must time their actions to sync with the moment a concentric ring is centered on Octavia, as the sound of the notes are played. A flash of light will appear below the player upon a successful sync.
    • Each player must perform actions individually to gain buffs. Sync buffs are gained per-player and are not shared between allies in range.
  • The amount of notes on one line of the Melody section on the Mandachord determines the brightness of the concentric rings.

  • Octavia and her allies can perform jumps (default Space ) to gain synchronize percentages from 0% to 100%. Once the synchronize percentage reaches 100%, the player gains the Vivace buff which increases movement speed by 10% / 15% / 20% / 30% for 5 / 8 / 12 / 15 seconds.
    • Speed bonus is affected by Ability Strength.
    • Buff duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Synchronize percentages can lower or raise depending on the player’s timing.
    • Synchronize percentage is displayed as an icon with the current stored percentage beside the health and shield indicators on the HUD. Once synchronized, the Vivace buff icon will also be displayed with the remaining buff duration beneath and speed bonus percentage at the top-right of the icon.
  • Double jump (default press Space  twice), wall climb (face wall and press Space ), and wall jump (face wall + W  + Space ) can also be used to synchronize.
  • Players can repeatedly jump, double jump, wall climb, and wall jump to reapply the Vivace buff while in range of Metronome.

  • Octavia and her allies can crouch (default Ctrl ) to gain synchronize percentages from 0% to 100%. Once the synchronize percentage reaches 100%, the player gains the Nocturne buff which grants invisibility for 5 / 8 / 12 / 15 seconds.
    • Cloak duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Synchronize percentages can lower or raise depending on the player’s timing.
    • Synchronize percentage is displayed as an icon with the current stored percentage beside the health and shield indicators on the HUD. Once synchronized, the Nocturne buff icon will also be displayed with the remaining buff duration beneath the icon.
  • Slide (default W  + Ctrl ) can also be used to synchronize.
  • Players can repeatedly crouch and slide to reapply the Nocturne buff while in range of Metronome.

  • Octavia and her allies can fire their ranged weapons (default LMB ) to gain synchronize percentages from 0% to 100%. Once the synchronize percentage reaches 100%, the player gains the Opera buff, which applies 12% / 20% / 25% / 30% Multishot to ranged weapons for 5 / 8 / 12 / 15 seconds.
    • Multishot bonus is affected by Ability Strength.
    • Buff duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Synchronize percentage can lower or raise depending on the player’s timing.
    • Synchronize percentage is displayed as an icon with the current stored percentage beside the health and shield indicators on the HUD. Once synchronized, the Opera buff icon will also be displayed with the remaining buff duration beneath and multishot bonus percentage at the top-right of the icon.
  • Alternate-fire or secondary attacks on select weapons are not known to be able to gain multishot from Opera (requires testing).
  • Players can repeatedly fire weapons to reapply the Opera buff while in range of Metronome.

  • Octavia and her allies can use melee weapons (default E ) to gain synchronize percentages from 0% to 100%. Once the synchronize percentage reaches 100%, the player gains the Forte buff, which applies 20% / 25% / 25% / 30% bonus damage to melee weapon for 5 / 8 / 12 / 15 seconds.
    • Melee damage bonus is affected by Ability Strength.
    • Buff duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Synchronize percentage can lower or raise depending on the player’s timing.
    • Synchronize percentage is displayed as an icon with the current stored percentage beside the health and shield indicators on the HUD. Once synchronized, the Forte buff icon will also be displayed with the remaining buff duration beneath and melee damage bonus percentage at the top-right of the icon.
    • Forte's damage buff is an additive base damage multiplier that functions the same as (and adds together with) base damage mods like Mod TT 20px.png Pressure Point.
  • Charge attack (default hold E ) can also be used to gain Forte.
  • Players can repeatedly attack with melee weapons to reapply the Forte buff while in range of Metronome.


    • Metronome can be recast while active to refresh its duration. On recast, existing synchronize percentages will not carry over and will be reset to 0%.
    • Casting Metronome is not a One-Handed Action and interrupts other actions, but allows movement.
    • Casting animation is affected by Casting Speed, such as from Mod TT 20px.png Natural Talent and Mod TT 20px.png Speed Drift.
    • When Octavia is standing on higher elevations or objects, the concentric rings of light from the melodic aura will partially fade depending on the surrounding terrain to allow better visibility.
    • Concentric ring color and Nocturne cloak effect are affected by Octavia’s chosen Warframe energy color.
    • Metronome affects the visuals and audio of any nearby Mallet130xDark.png Mallet and Resonator130xDark.png Resonator belonging to Octavia herself.

    Tips & Tricks
  • Having the mandachord's melody set to a consistent rhythm makes it much easier to sync up your buffs.
  • Similar to Octavia's other abilities, without a melody this skill will do nothing.
  • The longer the pause is between notes, the higher is the percentage gained per successful action.
  • The intensity of light rings is determined by the number of notes in a particular column.

While standing inside the Amp field, Octavia and her allies gain a weapon damage buff with a minimum of 10% / 15% / 20% / 25% to a maximum of 125% / 150% / 175% / 200%, depending on the sound level in the environment.
      • Field radius is affected by Ability Range.
      • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
      • Minimum and maximum damage buffs are affected by Ability Strength.
      • Sounds originating from gunfire, footsteps, alarms, melee strikes, abilities such as Mallet130xDark.png Mallet, Resonator130xDark.png Resonator, and Amp130xDark.png Metronome, and many more can affect Amp's damage multiplier.
      • Amp damage increase is displayed as an icon with the current damage increase in percentage, beside the shield and health indicator on the top-right of the HUD.
      • Amp's damage buff is an additive base damage multiplier that functions the same as (and adds together with) base damage mods like Mod TT 20px.png Serration. If these mods are present, all the multipliers are added together before any further calculations such as elemental damage mods, critical hit mods, or multishot mods.
    • Ability Synergy: When Mallet130xDark.png Mallet is hovering over an Amp field from any Octavia player, the percussive aura will double in damage and range.
      • Does not actually increase the damage of Mallet130xDark.png Mallet.
    • Can be recast while active to create a new Amp field. Octavia is limited to only 1 active Amp field at a time.
    • Casting Amp is not a One-Handed Action as it interrupts other actions, but allows movement.
    • Casting animation is affected by Casting Speed, such as from Mod TT 20px.png Natural Talent and Mod TT 20px.png Speed Drift.
    • Amp field sound sensors visually produce sound bars that enlarge, shrink, stretch vertically, horizontally and diagonally depending on Percussion, Bass, and Melody music from Octavia's other abilities.
      • Sound sensors will only visibly react to the owner Octavia's abilities and not from other Octavia players in a squad. This is a visual effect only, as the sound level in the environment does affect any Amp field's damage multiplier.
    • The thrown amplifier device serves both as a visual anchor point and generator for the Amp field. Nullifier Crewman's bubble must come in direct contact with the amplifier device to dispel this ability.
    • When two or more Amps intersect, players will only benefit from the one with the highest boost.

    Update 30.9 (2021-11-11)

    • Fixed Octavia’s Mallet marker being visible to everyone (should only be visible to the Octavia that casted it).

    Update 30.7 (2021-09-08)

    • Octavia’s Mandachord option has been moved into the top Arsenal menu, under the Parazon option.
      • The Mandachord is a very important piece of equipment for Octavia’s abilities - having it buried and not as readily accessible was not ideal considering that it is key to her performance. It is now much easier to find it and create a tune of destruction!

    Update 29.9 (2021-02-23)

    • Introduced Octavia Prime.

    Update 29.5 (2020-11-19)

    Update 27.2 (2020-03-05)

    • Armor Change:
      • Octavia: 125 to 150
      • 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 25.7 (2019-08-29)

    Update 24.6 (2019-04-04)

    • Having a ‘signature’ weapon now actually benefits you!
      • Tenora: Headshot kills with alt fire have a 20% chance to instantly refill magazine when wielded by Octavia.
      • Pandero: Headshot kills with alt fire increase reload speed by 20% when wielded by Octavia.
