Forged In Flames
As someone who has put in a lot of hours into Warframe, I've run into a small issue that I am sure others players have also experienced. Sometimes you build a weapon, item, or Warframe and you realize that it didn't live up to your expectations or you simply no longer want it.
What am I supposed to do with a weapon I don't want? As of right now, you can't trade weapons with players, only their blueprints. My only option as of right now is to sell it. The only issue with selling this maxed out supercharged weapon is that the game will only let me sell it for a measly 7,500 credits! The catalyst I installed cost 35k just to build! There has to be a better way of getting rid of my unwanted inventory.
New Game Mechanic: Smelting
The Boltor costs 25k credits, 2 Neurodes (Rare), Alloy Plate 100 (common), Salvage 900 (common), 600 Polymer Bundle (Common) and the Boltor blueprint to build. The smelting process would result in the player receiving back a percentage of what they put in. For example, 1 Neurode, 25 Alloy Plates, 255 Salvage, and 110 Polymer bundle
Quest: Sum of Their Parts
The Tenno will follow Maroo into the depths of the secret Corpus factories and discover more then they bargained for. Secrets are revealed as the Tenno find themselves surrounded by menacing mechanical enemies. Can they pull themselves out from the clutches of the Corpus? Or will they find themselves turn to scrap?
Maroo plans on sneaking in, but stealing the smelter will require the stealth technology of a Tenno landing craft in order to get in undetected, not to mention if things go south, she will need the help escaping. She does expect some resistance.
The player must hack three Bursas in total to help Maroo pinpoint their point of origin, i.e. the secret manufacturing plant. Once she has the coordinates, she will tell the player the next mission location.
Mission 3A: Survival (15 mins) - Lotus will help the player find life support capsules. There will only be corpus machines spawned in during this mission (Moas, Drones etc). The player will have to survive long enough for Maroo and Lotus to secure an extraction point.
Note: If they player is spotted, they must kill the enemy that spotted them immediately or else the mission will fail.
It will take 3 minutes for the hack to go through. The player will have to stealthily eliminate any Corpus units that get too close to the terminal. They can do this with a silenced weapon or by a stealth take down.
With the terminals hacked, Maroo will ask the player to meet her inside one of the vents overlooking an assembly line. The player must make their way to her, once again avoiding detection. Once they reach her a cinematic will start.
The player must escort the freed Tenno to the extraction point. Upon arriving at the extraction point, the captive Tenno will be board the player's landing craft. Suddenly, the extraction point is ambushed by a Zanuka Hunter.
A New Economy
Ore would be a reward for high level invasion missions, Events, Alerts and sorties. Ore can be traded from player to player for mods, blueprints or platinum. The price of Ore increases and fluctuates in value. Players would be able to cash in their ore at relays. The value of ore fluctuates day to day. Players may trade ore among NPCs from different factions or syndicates for varying amounts. Friendly syndicates will grant players standing and credits for ore.
These raw blocks of ore require 25k credits to smelt and it will take 8 hours for the ore to be turned into raw materials. The player can pay 10 platinum to rush the smelting process, but there is no guarantee that there will be an increase in the amount of resources awarded.

If you play Warframe I would love to hear your thoughts on the the smelting mechanic/quest. Leave a comment here on my blog or tweet me. Thanks for reading!
