Update 26: The Old Blood Part 3

Melee 3.0 Phase 2 is live and no Melee Rivens have been changed as of the updates release

as DE plan to make those changes latter. Manual blocking has returned and can be done

in conjunction with the return of the Melee State by holding down the weapon switch key

and aiming down sights. You can leave the melee state by pressing

your weapon switch key once. Blocking now prevents all incoming damage

from affecting the player but all weapons have had their blocking cones adjusted. The stats for each weapons cone will come

later in the video. Combo attacks can now be cancelled at any

point by rolling. There are now two types of rolls tied to your

melee state. If you are blocking your roll will be reduced

and if you aren’t blocking you’ll have the standard roll range. All melee combos and stances have been simplified

and categorized to suit the attack. So standing still will have attacks that don’t

propel you forward, just as moving forward won’t have attacks that stop you. DE explained the groups of attacks and their

requisites. We also wanted melee attacks to feel more

intuitive. For example, if you are aiming down the sights

of a primary weapon or blocking incoming fire, and then hit the melee button, you most likely

want to get in close! If you are not inputting a movement key while

meleeing, it’s usually a sign you want to finish off your target. We wanted the new Combos to reflect that that

existing movement, and so the new inputs reflect that situational awareness. • Forward Combo (Forward + Melee) – This

allows you to attack without initially interrupting movement with the first 1-3 swings (depending

on the weapon Stance). The last attack in the sequence will loop

seamlessly into the first, so that you can keep a level of mobility while attacking. • Forward Tactical Combo (Forward + Block/Aim

+ Melee) – This move is usually a distance-closing opener, bringing you closer to the enemy and

getting you within range to continue a harder-hitting string of attacks. The beginning or end of this combo can have

a slam effect, allowing you to control the enemy, and during the mid-point of the combo,

attacks will be large and sweeping, allowing multiple enemies to be hit. • Neutral Combo (Melee button only) – Hard

hitting, movement-free attacks to allow a player to destroy their target. The last attack can either have a knockdown

effect, or throw them into the air and hold them there, if one set of strikes does not

finish the job. • Neutral Tactical Combo (Block/Aim + Melee)

– First hit will likely be a longer thrust or throw of a weapon to increase range. Further attacks will be hard-hitting, and

will often finish in a ragdoll effect or a Lifting Attack, as opposed to a knockdown

or stagger. Lifting attacks are detailed in Section 7

of this workshop. • Air Combo (Melee while Jumping) – Perform

a combo in the air without sacrificing movement. • Hover Air Combo (Back + Melee while Jumping)

– Holds the player in place while the combo completes, and overrides the slam attack angle

to keep the action going! Combos can now lead into other combos if the

requirements are met. The Combo counter has changed and is the main

mechanic supporting the new Heavy Attacks that have replaced Channeling. Once again Channeling has been removed with

this update but armor effects will appear after the combo counter reaches 2. The Combo counter now increases with every

strike, bullet blocked, slam radial damage and glaive hit. Counter progress will be increased more if

you use slower strikes than that of swifter strikes. The combo counter will be consumed upon the

activation of a heavy attack regardless of count but the count within the counter will

affect the damage output of the strike. Warframes & their abilities who use the combo

counter will now scale at 25% of their forma values. DE have also added a combo duration bar to

the UI that will be displayed under the counter. Heavy attacks can be done by pressing your

alternate fire key when in melee. These attacks can be done on ground or in

the air for a slam attack. Heavy attacks can be executed without any

points in the combo counter but no extra benefits will occur. A Heavy attack on the ground with points in

the counter will see increased damage but if done in the air for a heavy slam attack

any impacted enemies that did not die will be have the new lifted status thrust upon

them. The Lifted Status suspends enemies in the

air with its effectiveness being tied to the counters points. In relation to that, the standard slam attack

ragdoll has been removed with the exception of the Jat Kittag & other large weapons and

instead enemies affected by a slam will now be pushed back or knocked down. Slam effects have also been updated. Melee weapon Functionality, mastery rank,

damage & overall stats have been changed with the update. The following are the updated stats and changes

provided by Digital Extremes and their breakdown. • Mastery Rank – Weapons have been reviewed

to make sure their function and power are aligned with an appropriate Mastery Rank,

similar to passes made on Primary and Secondary weapons. • Base Damage – Since the Combo Multiplier

will apply to Heavy Attacks only, the base damage of all melee weapons has significantly

increased. • Base Range – Along with damage, range

has also been increased to make sure you get the most chop for your buck. While base range is being increased, Range

Mods are going to have a different calculation applied to them. • Mod and Arcane Channeling Functionality

– As mentioned above, any Mods or Arcanes with functionality tied to Channeling have

had their stats altered to increase Lifted Status, Heavy Attack damage and Combo Counter

modifiers. Universal stat changes:

Range has increased for kick attacks from to 2m, Except for Sparring weapons which has

increased to 2.5m Base Combo duration has also increased to

5 Seconds. For weapon classes,

it through the testing pipeline, some mentioned this impacts a specific Chroma interaction,

but positively impacts 41 other Warframes. “end quote. Glaive’s parry angle has been set to 55

Since the base damage of melee is being buffed, some notable Mods are getting a balance and/or

functionality pass. With the wide amount of changes happening

to Channeling and Heavy Attacks, some Mods have had to be reworked into other systems

or have had changes to the way their damage scales. For full transparency, some of these are nerfs

to specific Mods, but we felt these were necessary to truly allow Phase 2 to be treated as a

new beginning for melee. Our intention is to create engaging melee

and Modding variety, which is not possible when there is a one-best loadout or single

Mod that can kill almost anything in the game. We love killing things effectively, but we

also want the combat to be engaging and feel powerful. Spin attacks still exist, but the repetition

of them is something we’re trying not to force you to use. To reiterate: select tools made Spin attacks

optimal at the cost of the more interesting Melee system, and we’re trying to rectify

that. At the moment, the current list of Mods and

their changes are listed below. • Amalgam Organ Shatter – Is now +85%

Crit Damage & +60% Heavy Attack Wind up Speed • Blood Rush – Will now scale differently,

using a stacking multiplier based on the Combo Counter, raising 60% per Combo Counter tier

• Condition Overload – Now uses a stacking multiplier based on how many Status Effects

are on the target at 120% damage per Status. Digital Extremes expanded on Condition Overload

saying the following: o During this whole Melee rebalance, Condition

Overload remained a persistent outlier. Since launch, it has had an unintended stacking

mechanic, that nothing else uses in the game: it grew exponentially, making it too volatile

to balance. We know there’s nothing worse than ‘how

can you call this unintended’, so let’s explain the history: initially it did the

stacking on final damage, which, as you know from previous changes, we have been trying

to move away from. This is because this type of stacking makes

for very hard to control damage progression, and tends to be very confusing as to which

damage, Melee/Proc etc, applies where. This new version of the mod makes Condition

Overload’s damage multiplication become equal to Pressure Point when the enemy has

1 Status applied, better than Primed Pressure Point at 2 Statuses applied, and from there

it just grows and grows. Even though the maximum potential damage is

lower now, we think it is still an extremely powerful Mod in its latest iteration. o The new ‘Lifted’ Status also counts

for Condition Overload calculation. Revised Stances and the new Heavy Attack give

reliable ways of applying Status to enemies, which greatly increases the reliability of

Condition Overload • Corrupt Charge – Adds a large amount to

the Combo Counter, but significantly reduces the time it takes for the Combo Counter to

drain. +30 Initial combo -50% Combo Duration

• Covert Lethality – is remaining as a Dagger Mod for now with +16 Initial Combo and 100%

Finisher damage. • Dispatch Overdrive – Increases player

movement on a Heavy Attack hit.+60% Movement Speed for 15 Seconds

• Enduring Affliction – Increases the Status Chance on enemies suffering from the Lifted

Status. +100% Status Chance on Lifted Status

• Enduring Strike – Increases the Combo Counter chance when hitting Lifted enemies. +20% Addition Combo Count

• Focus Energy – Add Electrical damage to an attack, as well as increasing Combo Counter

generation. +40% Melee Combo Efficiency & +60% Electricity

• Focused Defense – Adds an additional 20 degrees to a weapons blocking angle. • Gladiator Mod Set – Adds a multiplier

with the Combo Counter up to 60% for the whole set. • Guardian Derision – Will add more to the

Combo Counter for blocking hits and The Taunt mechanic remains in place & has a 15 meter

range & +30% Combo Count Chance while Blocking. • Killing Blow – Increases Heavy Attack

damage by 120% and decreases the ‘wind-up’ time for Heavy Attacks, +60% Heavy Attack

Wind Up Speed • Life Strike – Heavy Attacks will now regenerate

Health. +20% Life Steal

• Maiming Strike – Changes from an additive buff to a stacking buff, but the base functionality

has increased to 150% Critical Chance on Slide Attack. • Quickening – Grants +40% Attack Speed

& gives +20% Combo Count Chance • Reach / Primed Reach – have changed

and DE said the following to their change, Quote: Reach & Primed Reach will now increase

range in a way that has been normalized. In the previous incarnation, long-range weapons

were getting too much of a benefit, while short-range weapons were barely seeing any

increase at all. The Reach mod provides 1.1 meters and primed

reach gives 3 Metres. • Reflex Coil – Increased Combo Point Efficiency

when using Heavy Attacks. +60%

• Reflex Guard – provides +100% Combo Count Chance while Blocking. • Spring-Loaded Blade – Will now provide

a maximum of 2 additional stacks of Melee Range. +1 Meter of Range for 24 Seconds on Status

Effect. • True Punishment – Add 40% Critical Chance,

but reduces the chance to add to the Combo Counter by -10%

• Weeping Wounds – Increases Status chance in a Stacking Multiplier, 40% per combo tier. The update brought changes to Weapons, Arcane

and Focus School buffs: • Zenurik’s Inner Might – Has been changed

to provide 60% Combo Efficiency, instead of Channeling Efficiency. • The Synoid Heliocor, Furax Wraith and

Fragor Prime have All received bonus initial Combo Counts to offset the boosted Channeling

Damage they had previously. • Exodia Triumph Arcanes – Have been changed

to +50% chance to increase the Combo Counter on hit. • Exodia Valor Arcanes – Have been changed

to +200% chance to increase Combo Count when hitting Lifted Enemies. • And Exodia Brave Arcanes – Now grants

+5 Energy Generation when killing an Enemy with a Heavy Attack. This can stack up to 3 times. All melee-based Exalted Weapons have received

the Phase 2 functionality treatment where they gain access to the combo changes. Garuda’s Claws

• Parry Angle set to 60 • Range increased from 1 to 2.2

• Damage increased from 72 to 180 Desert Wind

• Parry Angle set to 60 • Range increased from 1 to 1.2

Exalted Blade • Parry Angle set to 60

• Range increased from 1 to 2.8 • Heavy Attacks added

Valkyr’s Claws • Parry Angle set to 60

• Range increased from 0.5 to 1.7 Iron Staff

• Parry Angle set to 65 • Heavy Attacks added Aim Assist has been updated to have more intelligence

for those that use it. These changes will only apply if aim assist

is on. As a general rule under the new system, Aim

Assist will be disabled for almost all attacks in the Forward and Tactical Forward Combos,

and enabled for most of the Neutral and Tactical Neutral Combo attacks. And lastly we no longer drop items or unequip

Gear Items when either equipping melee or when we use a Melee Attack! Thanks for

watching .

If there is information that I have missed or in game interactions please make note of it in the comments so that both I and others are aware 😀

DAKRA IS TOO GOOD

Time stamp gods!

I call upon you!!

the nerf to rolling while blocking affects mobility too, the bullet jump, aimglide, roll movement is now gonna feel weird and slow

Wow thank you, I did not know about the hover air combo!

Zinistar Disc now procs berserker

Most of underrated melees are getting strong imo

Example : Venka and Reaper Prime

All is just a giant castration, I didnt like part one of melee 3.0, this part is pathetic at best. 3 formas and one legendary core is not enough to fix but only one melee of the 60 I have worked and farmed for resources and kuva for their respective rivens, I feel shamelessly robbed.

Edit, I dont even feel up to watching primetime, they let me down bad.

Holy shit……👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿

It's a bit saddening that DE has to go through this bc most players don't even know how to mod according to enemy level. Most of the star chart can be completed with any weapon with only a rank 9 serration equipped lol and thats playing solo …I've demonstrated this many times in my streams on mixer.

Thank you for doing this cause there is no way I'm reading all the patch notes lol. o7 The range feels too short now even with maxed Primed Reach.

The changes to Zenistar baffle me to no end. For those that don't know the Zenistars disc duration is now 10s and scales with combo. This is a horrible idea because it goes against the design of the Zenistar being a more defensive weapon and just makes it a gimmick. The Zenistar disc is supposed to be for area denial, not something you through our mid combo.

This is one huge info dump but a needed one. I read the notes myself but I'm sure not everyone can keep up with all of it. Thanks!

wow u can get 5x combo multipliers now?? Jeez, that's basically what melee is gonna be all about now.

This game is sooooo complicated to stay on top of… I feel so sorry for noobs….

oh wow… you covered all the mastery rank changes… you deserve a beer mate

I didnt see you mention it but gunblades still have their op combo pre update. Its just attack then heavy attack.

Same with glaives and weapons like wolf sledge, the explosion still exists via heavy attack. You can choose between letting one rip or just doing a regular attack.

Jaw sword for life

I watched the whole thing, thanks for the vid, and keep it up 😀

DE forgot to make changes to the Diwata: Titania's heavy blade.

Thanks for reading it all I read it myself but you really miss stuff when skimming through patch notes thanks for this, keep up the good work🙃 also I got to the end if you're wondering without skipping a second of the video

Well… The only thing I know it's that I will be spending some serious time on the simulacrum. Tho I'm pleasingly surprise by some weapons already

they fucked my redeemer

holding down melee button used to do a quick 2 shot

now, it THROWS YOUR WEAPON like some sort of a discount glaive

who in their right minds thought THROWING YOUR GUN AT YOUR ENEMY was a good idea??? wtf is this trash move set??

There is something slightly humours listening to iwpoly change voices while listing off information to keep himself entertained

They should change some of the blocking anims

We watched it all, really appreciate it!

Thank you

Melee 3.0 = nerf = shit!

How does the new melee handling feel on controllers? It does sound like it would cumbersome.

I watched to the end but i think melee stat changes should have been its own video

Great video, ty

They won't change melee dispositions until early next year grrr we want them now not in 3 months de

EXCELLENT presentation.

No base damage wasn't significantly increased it's a joke that most weapons still won't count since they cant scale anymore ruining melee entirely for me which is why I'm not going to be using them alot anymore after consoles get it

Don't worry, I watched the whole 40 minutes.

Watched 100% and hm had to go back several times to er listen to changes to my favorites. Thanks for the constant diligence. 👍

That feeling when the Sheeve is no longer a backsratcher…

And when the Twin Balsok are now really good.

The blooper at the end says it all lol. But seriously, it’s awesome that you provide these patch note videos and I’m always impressed with how thorough you are. Some weapons gots interesting buffs. I’m personally gonna try the dragon now that it has 40% crit chance.

Thanks for the change updates it saves us the reading!! We appreciate ya!

Watched the whole thing thanks for the video. Fucking Jesus

A lot of the individual weapon changes aren't relevant to me, but I watched it all because I appreciate you making these videos.

I would love for anything to have a status chance of "200 fucking Jesus". That was great. 🙂

great work!

Ummm any update on titanias melee exalted weapon changes?

Yes i got to the end but i did jump over the dead fodder weapons

You put so much effort and time to this video!!

I approve this….subscribe!!!!

nobody got to the point where you read all that 😉

I find pressing back to do the hover attack in the air to be extremely unnatural feeling in practice. I don't know why they would not simply allow you do hover-attacks if you are hold block and not forward while attacking. It just goes completely against the flow of the combat, at no other time are you using back to control any melee moves. After 6 years of being fine with all melee changes in WF, my brain just refuses to grasp this play style. Maybe it feels less awkward on a controller?

heavy attacks really need to be changed to something fast and stylish. The game is too fast pace to wait around for a slow charge. Let the heavy attack for hammers be a hammer throw that explodes or something fast and cool. We were glad when heavy attacks left. I don't know why they thought it was good to bring it back.

When they implement rage mode, it would be a good time to fit in changes to heavy attacks.

Are there other self damage melees cause I’m quite happy with my chroma rattleguts pair

the blind justice nikana swings look so smooth! I'm having some exams on so I can't really play all that much, melee looks so much better and seems so much more fluid.

thank god for this, there isn't a single video on Melee Phase 2 yet that's even half as informative as this

I've got to "that" point. 200% status chance sounds good.

Don't worry, we can lose our minds together when you finally get to Purge Levels(2-12 hours) of patch notes reading 😀

useful info thank you for making the vid.

I watched it all man. This update is AWESOME

your content is too professional fot only 15k subs

God bless you for making these videos! I can listen to you while doing other things instead of having to sit down myself. Keep it up! Appreciate you!

Watched through and through. Keep it up! You're my one stop shop for detailed update information.

Mad respect for you man!!!

Why'd you make Excalibur Umbra look like that 🙁

What happens if you have a weapon but they change it to a higher mastery rank? Are they going to take them away?
