Do not seek death, Tenno, for Sevagoth may find you. Will you live to tell his tale?

Release Date: April 13th, 2021

Lore

Main article: Call of the Tempestarii

Sevagoth. A Warframe believed lost to the Void forever. His energy almost extinct. With his last spark of life, Sevagoth embraced his Shadow once again. And both were at peace.

—Cephalon Cy

Sevagoth was the captain of The Tempestarii, an Old War Railjack highly renown for its rescue services. However, one day Sevagoth was lost to the Void, but commanded his Shadow to continue to pilot the Tempestarii to search for his body as the ship's final rescue mission, effectively becoming a ghost ship.

The Tempestarii made an enemy of Corpus Captain Vala Glarios, who was the sole survivor of the ship's attack on Lucretia Platform. Left adrift in space among the fragments of her dead crew, she sought revenge.

Cephalon Cy and the Tenno come across the Tempestarii in the Veil Proxima. After learning about the ship from Corpus logs in the Pluto Proxima, Cy is able to appease the Tempestarii by pleading as a ship in distress. The Shadow entrusts the Tenno a corrupted navigation log, which they repair, but are ambushed by Vala. The Tempestarii counterattacks and banishes Vala to the Granum Void before making a jump to the Void to complete the ship's final rescue mission.

The Tenno retrieve a lifepod containing Sevagoth's corpse, reuniting him with his Shadow. Now at peace, the Tenno delivers him a ship burial by launching his body back into the Void.

Notes

Trivia

  • Sevagoth is the 46th unique Warframe to be released.
  • Sevagoth was first revealed during Tennocon 2020's Art of Warframe Panel, under the codename "Wraithe", alongside LavosIcon272.png Lavos. Initially planned to release with Lavos, Sevagoth was pushed back to 2021 for further development and to coincide with other content releases.
    • Sevagoth's name and abilities were revealed in Devstream 151. His Shadow, its exalted claw weapon, and signature secondary weapon were briefly showcased in Devstream 152.
  • Sevagoth is the second community-made Warframe concept created by community artist and now Digital Extremes staff Liger "Volkovyi" Inuzuka, after ZephyrIcon272.png Zephyr's integration into the game. Much of the initial Warframe concept has been fine-tuned and integrated into the finalized design.[1][2]
    • The first placeholder ability Reap unleashes the Shadow instead of a flying shadowy claw, with the dashing function integrated into the Shadow's Consume130xDark.png Consume ability.
    • The second placeholder ability Blackhole was replaced by Sow130xDark.png Sow. The soul vortex visual effect remains as a brief animation for Reap130xDark.png Reap's Shadow when it dissipates.
    • The third placeholder ability Tombstone was designed with similar functionality as ProteaIcon272.png Protea's TemporalAnchor130xDark.png Temporal Anchor, before Protea's eventual release. The area of effect aura aspect has been adopted by Gloom130xDark.png Gloom, while the tombstone model has been integrated into the passive ability.
    • The fourth placeholder ability The Harvest remains similar to ExaltedShadow130xDark.png Exalted Shadow in wielding control over an exalted form.
  • Sevagoth is the seventh Warframe with unique rolling animations, after  LimboIcon272.png Limbo, HildrynIcon272.png Hildryn, WispIcon272.png Wisp, TitaniaPrimeMain.png Titania Prime, ProteaIcon272.png Protea, and XakuIcon272.png Xaku, where he launches himself slightly in the air and rolls sideways mid-air.
  • Sevagoth is one of few Warframes known to have voices, with the others being ValkyrIcon272.png Valkyr/Valkyr PrimeIcon272.png Valkyr Prime, Excalibur UmbraIcon272.png Excalibur Umbra, HarrowIcon272.png Harrow (Rell), NidusIcon272.png Nidus (Ravenous130xDark.png Ravenous) and ProteaIcon272.png Protea (Protea Specter).
  • Sevagoth is the first Warframe to innately allow the player to create and take control of an exalted form with distinct abilities.
  • Sevagoth's Shadow appears behind him momentarily during his Agile idle animation.[3]
  • On April Fools Day 2021, the advertisement for FashionFace featured the Sevagoth's Shadow Collection of makeup color shades for your gothic aesthetic needs.[4]

Passive

Intertwined forever in life and death, SevagothIcon272.png Sevagoth and his Shadow exhibit numerous unique properties and interactions, highlighted in the tabs below:

Tombstone

Sevagoth's Tombstone

Death and rebirth unending. On fatal injury and entering Bleedout, SevagothIcon272.png Sevagoth's body petrifies into a broken tombstone as his Shadow manifests itself. Control the Shadow to collect the souls of 5 enemies by casting Consume130xDark.png Consume via the ability, quick melee, or fire weapon buttons with a targeted enemy on the aiming reticle (default 2 , E  and LMB  respectively), reviving Sevagoth upon a full harvest. Alternatively, allies may manually revive Sevagoth by interacting with his tombstone.

  • While the passive is activated, the Death Well above Sevagoth's ability icons is briefly replaced by a soul counter indicating the number of remaining enemies required to revive Sevagoth, as well as a bleedout gauge that counts down toward his death.
  • Sevagoth's Shadow summoned by the passive is still vulnerable to damage and status effects. It utilizes its equipped Mods and Arcanes, but cannot cast its other abilities. Beware, should the Shadow die, Sevagoth will also truly die, but only in Solo mode. In Co-op, his Shadow simply vanishes, and his tombstone will remain for the rest of his bleedout timer, still available to be revived by his allies.
  • Consume130xDark.png Consume is altered to cost no Energy to cast and inflicts armor and shield-bypassing damage equal to the target's total hitpoints, instantly killing non-boss enemies.
  • Although ShadowClaws-Arsenal.webp Shadow Claws cannot be used to directly attack, Sevagoth's Shadow can still block incoming frontal damage (default hold RMB ) to prolong its durability until the soul harvest is complete.
    • However, the claws may still perform a heavy melee attack or slam (default MMB ). Enemies killed via this method do not count toward reviving Sevagoth.
  • The player can still reach extraction while bleeding out and controlling Sevagoth's Shadow.
  • Mod TT 20px.png Undying Will and Renewal130xDark.png Renewal will still function normally on Sevagoth's Tombstone.
    • Undying Will has no effect when equipped on the Shadow.
  • Tombstone does not prevent Sevagoth from dying in Arbitrations; he will still enter the Tombstone animation before immediately dying.

Shadow

  • When Sevagoth is the player's equipped Warframe, Sevagoth's Shadow is available for customization with its own Upgrade, Appearance, and Abilities tabs in the Arsenal loadout screen after reaching Warframe Rank 10.
  • While controlling Sevagoth's Shadow via the passive ability and ExaltedShadow130xDark.png Exalted Shadow, the player's HUD fades into a monochrome tint with vaporous visual effects animating along the edges. The Shadow itself visually resides at the eyes of twin storms of darkness that follow from above and below, while a dark fog shrouds the environment in the distance.
    • Due to the Shadow's bulk, the player's camera angle is set to a different attach point than Warframes.
  • The Shadow can perform all Warframe Maneuvers as well as interactions such as hacking, picking up collectibles such as Ayatan Treasures and Granum Crowns, and reviving allies from Bleedout.
    • The Shadow uses custom double jump and dodge animations, where it spins and twirls in a full rotation as it moves toward the input direction.
    • However, the Shadow cannot pick up carriables such as Mobile Defense datamasses or Excavation power cells, and cannot interact with Sevagoth's Tombstone to revive himself.
  • The Shadow cannot use Gear items or perform Emotes.
  • Upon receiving fatal damage, the Shadow does not enter Bleedout state, instead reverting the player's control back to Sevagoth's body.
  • While within an ability nullification sphere from enemies such as Nullifier Crewman or Isolator Bursa, Sevagoth's Shadow receives damage to its Health pool as 15% of its maximum health pool every 0.5 seconds.
  • Replacing Exalted Shadow via Helminth will remove access to all of the Shadow's abilities. However, Sevagoth's Tombstone passive will still function normally.
  • The Shadow's abilities cannot be replaced by Helminth.

Claws
For the exalted weapon article, see Shadow Claws.
  • When Sevagoth is the player's equipped Warframe, ShadowClaws-Arsenal.webp Shadow Claws is available for customization with its own Upgrade tab in the Arsenal loadout screen after reaching Warframe Rank 10.
  • Shadow Claws are accessed via ExaltedShadow130xDark.png Exalted Shadow and comes with its own unique melee stance, Mod TT 20px.png Ravenous Wraith.
    • The stance's rank for Shadow Claws corresponds to the ability rank of Exalted Shadow on Sevagoth.
  • Shadow Claws' colors automatically match the Appearance loadout of Sevagoth's Shadow.

Upgrade

Appearance
  • Sevagoth's Shadow's Appearance tab within the Arsenal allows for separate color and attachments customization.
    • Appearance menu consists of helmet, skin, attachments, and color options.
    • Attachments only contain the Ephemera selection.
    • The Shadow's energy colors automatically match the selected colors on Sevagoth's Appearance loadout.
  • Sevagoth's Shadow's appearance resembles the Sevagoth Warframe with some notable differences.
    • The flesh-like collar around Sevagoth's neck is enlarged, causing the lining of spikes to protrude more prominently.
    • The inner pieces of the shawl normally dangling freely are enlarged and warped into malleable arms ending in razor-sharp claws. The wires wrapped around his arms become unfurled and hang freely in front.
    • Elongated spikes protrude from its spine, while the spinal cord act as a tail.
    • Sevagoth's upper and lower limbs as well as his main body are missing, replaced by flowing shadows and ghostly vapor that emanate from the Shadow.

Update 30.2

  • Fixed (again) Sevagoth not going into Shadow form after death if Sevagoth previously died in Archwing.
  • Removed Sevagoth’s Gloom FX applying to Sentinels due to too much visual noise.
  • Disabled Sevagoth’s Shadow being able to pick up stolen weapons.

  • Fixed wrong localized description for Sevagoth’s Agile Animation.

Hotfix 30.1.1

  • Sevagoth’s Shadow Embrace now respects Bosses that have ragdoll resistances (Vay Hek, Ambulas, etc). If the enemy has crowd-control resistance, repeated Embrace casts will have reduced Duration to adapt against said enemies.
  • Fixed inability to Swap Polarities for Sevagoth’s Shadow.
  • Fixed being able to butt scoot while in Sevagoth Tombstone.

Hotfix 30.0.8

  • Fixed a functionality loss if in Sevagoth preadeath Shadow form while on an enemy Crewship that explodes.
    • Fixed using Sevagoth’s Shadow Consume ability on squadmates (with friendly fire on) in the Simulacrum causing their Warframe/Operator to go invisible and possible loss of functionality.

  • Sevagoth’s Gloom Energy cost is now prevented from increasing to 1.5 per enemy as the radius grows, and drain is capped at a maximum of 10 enemies.

  • Added functionality to now ‘Hold’ Sevagoth’s Reap on cast to speed up the Shadow by 2x.
  • Made improvements towards Sevagoth’s Reap movement to alleviate the Shadow becoming stuck in numerous situations. He may still get stuck in some cases, but his movement should be less jerky and should no longer try to dig his head into a wall.
  • Sevagoth’s Gloom now consumes 0.75 Energy per second (base) for each enemy within Glooms range. Equip Efficiency Mods (Streamline, etc) to reduce!  NOTE: there is another planned change which missed this build, which prevents the energy cost from increasing to 1.5 per enemy, and caps the drain at a maximum of 10 enemies. Look for that in the near future.

  • Fixed a crash caused by Sevagoth’s passive.
  • Fixed Larvlings being killed by Sevagoth’s Shadow using his Shadow as the progenitor instead of Sevagoth himself. Also fixed a crash that could be caused by Liches generated by Sevagoth’s Shadow.

  • Fixed items picked up by Sevagoth's Shadow being duplicated whenever you switch to him.
