Releases powerful pheromones to attract the infested.

—In-game Description

The Pherliac Pod is a consumable Gear item. When deployed, the pod acts as a decoy that makes Infested units attack it rather than anything else. Non-Infested units will attack the pods only if the player is not nearby.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

  • This item's blueprint and its components: Pulsating Tubercles, Infected Palpators, Chitinous Husk, Severed Bile Sac; can be obtained as drops from the JuggernautJuggernaut Behemoth, and Deimos Juggernaut. One random component is a guaranteed drop from each Juggernaut, and the blueprint may also drop as well. Each Pherliac Pod created has 50 charges.
    • The blueprint currently has a bugged 90% drop chance from Deimos Juggernaut. DE has Stated that it is intended to be only a 5% drop chance, and have already attempted (and failed) to fix this bug. However, the other components and drops have the correct drop chance as intended.
  • The blueprint and components cannot be traded with other players.

Potent Pherliac Pod[edit | edit source]

The Potent Pherliac Pod is an enhanced version made by irradiating the Pherliac Pod with Argon Crystals. The Blueprint is only obtainable during The Jordas Precept quest.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Pherliac Pods are a required item to complete The Jordas Precept quest.
    • Potent Pherliac Pods are also required to complete the quest and the blueprint is unobtainable otherwise.
    • Potent Pherliac Pods do not actually need to be used to progress the quest however. They must only be crafted and equipped.
    • For this reason, players may wish to keep their Potent Pherliac Pods as a souvenir, rather than using them.
    • If used, Potent Pherliac Pods function identically to their normal variant.
  • Blueprints are not reusable.
  • When used, the Pherliac Pod is thrown to a targeted point on the ground. The Pod has a higher threat rating than players, and will thus attract enemy Infested to attack it instead.
    • The pod will attract all Infested units, including Corrupted Ancients and Phorid.
    • Against Lephantis, the Pherliac Pod will only attract the attention of the scythe-wielding Grineer head during the second phase, which will make it pull the rest of Lephantis' main body to the Pod's location as it attempts to attack it in melee. Otherwise, the Pod has no effect on the other heads, or on all the heads during the first phase.
  • A deployed Pherliac Pod will last for 10 seconds.
  • The blueprint can drop alongside one of the components upon killing a Juggernaut or Juggernaut Behemoth. The blueprint's dropping does not replace the random component.
    • Pherliac Pods blueprints resemble other blueprint drops such as OberonIcon272.pngOberon parts.
  • Non-Infested units will still attack Pherliac Pods, but the pods will not have the same threat rating as on the Infested.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • A deployed Pherliac Pod can cause groups of Infested to crowd together, this in turn allows for effective use of AOE (area of effect) Warframe abilities when aiming the ability at the crowd.
    • The above tip can be used in Defense missions so as to deter crowds of Infested from rushing towards the cryopod, while at the same time allowing for efficient use of Warframe AOE abilities.
