Hi guys. I am quite new to the game, playing for a month or so. so bit of a noob. Just wanted to say a few thngs about my starter MAG, as I just completed building my 2nd.
When I was first started playing, and was looking up, I saw a few negatives on mag. Now I am at MR 5, completed upto jupiter, and in retrospect, MAG is a great frame. I loved playing with her, her abilities are quite well suited to my playstyle as well. I had a bit difficulty in probably first few missions, but once i understood the powers, it is just pure power.
So I just tght of asking you guys, who have started MAG as their starter, and their experience.(or how they learned to work with her, playing style etc.). Porbably any new player thnking of using her, will get help.
Mag starter here. Mag is a great starter frame for new players. Sadly, same can be said for all the frames available, until you reach enemies over level 30-35. with the Grineer having more armor and the Corpus having more shields while doing more damage.
Mag as an endgame warframe is mediocre at best, since you'd be dealing with greater and much harder enemies by then. Im currently using Mag as a fun warframe to run around with augment mods.
My recommendation for players who started as Mag and wish to complete all of the Sol nodes as a Main (including quests) is this: start by enchancing the frames Ability Strenght and Efficiency. Following that, enchance Mag with Health, Shield and Armor mods. you effectively will squeeze yourself trough until you reach the final nodes of the solar system. Also have fun using only abillity 3 and 4 at the second half of your expedition to the end.
Optionally, but i personally recommend for mag startes is to get Augmented mods for mag. to aquire said exotic mods, you need to join one of the syndicate factions on the Relay, you can obtain said mods for Mag only trough New Loka and the Perrin Sequence syndicate. One of my persoanly favorite Augments for Mag is Magnetized Discharge.
Don't do the open world missions yet. Save it for last since you would't be able to do much right now with your current builds and lack of other frames, mods and weapons. After completing the nodes, you will effectivly start playing the true content the game has to offer (beside open world content).
My conclusion for Mag: Keep her around she's a fun frame if built correctly on specific Mods.
