Dojo Pigments Palette

Dojo Polychrome palette.

A Pigment is a type of resource which appears as a small tetrahedron (three-sided pyramid) dropped by specific enemies. Pigments are required for researching Polychrome Colors for the interior of a Clan Dojo.

Each Polychrome Color has an associated enemy, and will only drop if a color is being researched. The frequency of pigment drops and the number of pigments in each drop varies per color from 1 to 10.

Polychrome Color research can be started (and pigments can be turned in) at a Clan Dojo's Tenno Research Lab, at a separate terminal by the wall on the right. Each project will have a base cost of Credits6410,000 and 5 to 550 pigments. These costs are increased by the Clan Tier Multiplier.

Once fully funded, the research for a color takes 36 hours. Only one color may be researched at a time, regardless of the number of Tenno Labs that are present in the Dojo. Research on one color may be paused to start research on another, but any pigment in clan member inventories that has not been donated to the research project will be deleted.

NotesEdit

Resource BoostersEdit

  • Resource Boosters and Resource Drop Chance Boosters increase the amount of pigments that drop from enemies.
    • Since the drop rate for pigments from bosses is 100%, the drop chance is doubled to 200%, resulting in twice as much of the item being dropped.
    • This effectively results in a 2x quantity multiplier when only one of either booster is active, and a 4x quantity multiplier when both are active.
    • The drop chance boost from Dark Sectors stacks multiplicatively with the former multipliers, rounded down.
    • Likewise, the resource bonuses from Void Fissures stack multiplicatively.

Team FarmingEdit

  • When running missions as a team, the number of pigments will be multiplied by the number of people on the team that have the same pigment being researched in their dojos.
  • Also, similar to life support capsules, only one member of any clan can pick up the pigment from an enemy. This essentially means that pigments are dropped on a first come, first served basis.

Farming guide for each individual pigmentEdit

INFO: This is NOT a list of all drop locations or all farming methods, it is a list with the most effective, fastest and easiest way(s) for gathering each individual pigment. IF there is only or two ways to get this pigments it is mentioned.

Pigment/Enemy Tips & Locations
01000011 Cyan
(Terra Raptor SX)
Anti-Violet
(Zanuka Hunter)
  • Only way to obtain pigments of this color is doing Invasions against the Corpus until you got the Zanuka Hunter Assassin Death Mark and killing the Zanuka Hunter when he tries to assasinate you OR summon the Zanuka Hunter by using its Beacon purchased from Baro Ki'Teer.
Autumn Brown
(Corrupted MOA)
  • Belenus, Void – Defense
  • Mot, Void – Survival
Boiler Red
(Phorid)
  • Since Phorid can only be found when an Invasion takes over the Assassination mission of a Planet but due to the 100% chance that he will drop the pigment, you can easily do 10 Invasion Assassination runs against him. A fast way to kill him is MesaIcon272 Mesa with Peacemaker130xDark Peacemaker.
Charger Blue
(Toxic Ancient)
  • Orokin Derelict Survival, stay for at least 5-10 minutes to spawn Toxic Ancients.
Conductor Gold
(Terra Embattor MOA)
  • Orb Vallis, spawns in a lot of places but Enrichment Labs is the closest.
Coolant Blue
(Terra Overtaker)
  • Orb Vallis, around the Enrichment Labs.
Crawler Blue
(Crawler)
Devar Grey
(Tusk Mortar Bombard)
Dust Brown
(Corrupted Lancer)
  • Ani, Void – Survival
Elysium Blue
(The Sergeant)
  • Illiad, Phobos – Assassination, is the only Mission The Sergeant appears.
Glacial Blue
(Crewman)
  • E Gate, Venus – Exterminate
Hesperia Brown
(Trooper)
  • Helene, Saturn – Defense
Jackal Yellow
(Sniper Crewman)
  • Elara, Jupiter – Survival
  • Larissa, Neptune – Mobile Defense
  • Proteus, Neptune – Defense
Leaf Red
(Stalker)
Leech Green
(Corrupted Crewman)
  • Mot, Void – Survival
Memoriam Purple
(Terra Provisor)
  • Orb Vallis, around the Grow Site.
MOA Green
(Orokin Drone)
  • Teshub, Void – Exterminate
Morning Yellow
(Leech Osprey)
  • Larissa, Neptune – Mobile Defense
Mortus Pink
(Tusk Flameblade)
Mutalist Red
(Tar-Mutalist MOA)
  • Seimeni, Ceres – Dark Sector Defense
Nanite Blue
(Charger)
  • Akkad, Eris – Dark Sector Defense
  • Abilities with an area of effect, like VoltIcon272 Volt with Discharge130xDark Discharge and especially EmberIcon272 Ember with {{Ability}} World On Fire not found are very effective. Remember to pick up the pigments in the ability range.
Neo Pink
(Terra Trencher)
  • Orb Vallis, around the Enrichment Labs.
Night Blue
(Councilor Vay Hek)
  • Oro, Earth – Assassination
Oak Brown
(Butcher)
  • Draco, Ceres – Survival
Olympus Blue
(Lancer)
  • Draco, Ceres – Survival
Railgun Blue
(Railgun MOA)
  • [Recommended] Larissa, Neptune – Mobile Defense. The Railgun MOA will start spawning after you activated the second console.
    • Far more time efficient than "V Prime, Venus", around 30 pigments in 8 minutes (Nekros, without any boosters)
  • [Alternative] V Prime, Venus – Survival against the Corpus. Stay for at least 10 minutes, recommended extraction time around 25-35 minutes.
    • This MAY be much more efficient if done by a full four man squad, depending on boosters, resource boosting warframes (Nekros, Hydroid etc) and of course luck. But it takes way more time compared with "Larissa, Neptune"
River Blue
(Seeker)
  • Helene, Saturn – Defense against the Grineer. Seekers start spawning at Wave 10.
Sand Yellow
(Scorpion)
  • Helene, Saturn – Defense
Shard Black
(Vomvalyst)
  • Plains of Eidolon, only during night time and always in pairs of two. It is recommended to farm them while fighting against an Eidolon Teralyst/Gantulyst/Hydrolyst because of their behavior try to defend the Eidolon, resulting more Vomvalyst.
Syrtis Orange
(Arid Eviscerator)
  • Augustus, Mars – Excavation
Tharsis Brown
(Ballista)
  • Draco, Ceres – Survival, between 10 and 20 minutes.
Tower White
(Kuva Jester)
  • Kuva Siphon missions.
  • Taveuni, Kuva Fortress – Survival
Tree Green
(Arid Lancer)
  • Augustus, Mars – Excavation
Wisp Grey
(Dargyn Pilot)
  • Plains of Eidolon, spreaded around in groups of two during Day Time. They can fly around with their Dargyn or patrolling around them on the ground. While doing bounties Dargyn pilots spawn frequently during the drone escorts.
