Warframe Dante (Farm, Crafting Requirements & Abilities)

Dante is a Warframe that resembles a scribe, who composes arcane tales from Leverian lore as a way to bring devastation upon his enemies and support his allies.

This Warframe provides both offense and support during missions, capable of killing several enemies in a single blow within a large area or preventing allies from taking damage.

By utilizing three verses, which rely on each other to determine what effects happen while Dante engages his enemies.

How To Get Dante?

1) Armatus (Disruption)

Armatus (Disruption) mission on Deimos

You can get the blueprint and component blueprints for Dante by completing Rotation C in the Armatus (Disruption) mission on Deimos.

There will be a chance for you to obtain one of Dante’s parts (or main blueprint) each time you reach the fourth rotation, which makes it best to work with a squad.

Armatus is set in the Albrecht’s Laboratories tileset, which has you fighting against The Murmur as you complete your objectives. 

Gaining access to Armatus requires that you first complete two quests, which are The Deadlock Protocol and Whisper in the Walls.

2) Purchase from Loid

Research Dante

Another way for you to purchase the main blueprint and component blueprints for Dante is to purchase them from Loid in the Sanctum Anatomica.

Dante’s Main Blueprint may be purchased for 270 Vessel Capillaries while each of his Component Blueprints cost 90.

Vessel Capillaries are one of the resources that was introduced when Dante was released and may be obtained from the Armatus (Disruption) mission.

Dante Strategy

Dante can utilize his verses depending on most situations but when it comes to offense, utilizing two Dark Verses and performing Tragedy is powerful enough to clear a whole room.

Using Light Verse is usually enough to protect your allies but when things get tough, casting Triumph may sometimes come in handy.

The use of Dante’s other Final Verses depends mainly on your play style and each of them can benefit you either with offense, defense, or both.

Making use of Noctua is a great way to take out groups of enemies thanks to the split projectiles for scattered enemies as well as the wave that can be unleashed to damage clustered enemies.

Verdict

Dante excels at taking out multiple enemies but when it comes to using Dark Verse, it is important to make sure the enemies are in front of you to get as many as possible.

Repeating the usage of Dark Verse and Final Verse to use Tragedy is one of the best ways to clear out a whole room full of enemies and with more range, a large area can be wiped.

Utilizing Light Verse and Final Verses that require it is recommended for difficult missions, especially when enemies often inflict Status Effects upon you.
