Citrine is a crystal and geode-based Warframe that was introduced as a support Warframe during Citrine’s Last Wish update.
She is capable of dealing damage to enemies while also disabling them, giving her allies a window of opportunity most of the time.
Her ability to protect her allies and grant them health regeneration makes her a game-changer when it comes to difficult missions.

Citrine’s abilities are capable of stunning enemies, healing and protecting allies, and forcing slain foes to drop Health and Energy Orbs.
Citrine is surrounded by an aura that grants her allies 5 Health Regeneration per second which increases whenever she picks up a Health Orb.
Each Health Orb will increase the Health Regeneration by 0.1 and will be able to stack up to a maximum of 25 Health Regeneration per second.
1) Fractured Blast
Citrine slashes the enemies in front of her with crystals, which causes enemies to be affected by Bleed, dealing damage over time.
Enemies that are killed while suffering from Bleed from Fractured Blast will have an increased chance of dropping Health and Energy Orbs.
2) Preserving Shell
Citrine manifests a shell that protects her and her allies by reducing the damage they take, which will slowly decay over time.
Enemies killed will increase the damage reduction by 3% while assists for kills will grant 1% to further protect you and your allies.
3) Prismatic Gem
Citrine deploys a large gem that shoots prismatic beams at enemies, focusing more on enemies that are damaged by Citrine or her ally’s weapons.
The prismatic beams will deal Heat, Cold, Toxin, and Electricity status effects, which are increased for nearby allies.
Citrine summons crystal fractals that blaze forward and seek out nearby enemies, paralyzing them with crystalline growths.
Dealing damage to enemies with Crystalline growths will cause them to take critical damage, which has a base critical chance of 300%
Citrine may be considered by some as a supportive Warframe but she can cause a lot of damage and is a great addition to any team.
Her ability to force enemies to drop Health Orbs makes it easy to boost Geoluminesence for more Health Regeneration and to damage enemies.
Using Crystalline is great for weakening enemies, allowing your allies to dish out more damage to them due to the critical multiplier.
