How To Get Protea Blueprint?

You can obtain Protea’s Blueprint after finishing The Deadlock Protocol quest, which rewards it after its completion.

The Deadlock Protocol involves the discovery of the Corpus Parvos Granum still alive after Protea had given her life to preserve him in an interdimensional realm.

During the quest Parvos ends up luring the Tenno to be attacked by the Protea Specter, failing to do so and allowing the Tenno to save trapped Solaris captives.

During the quest, you will learn about Granum Voids and this is important later when it comes to how to farm Protea parts.

How To Get Protea Parts?

Protea’s Components can be obtained by entering and completing Granum Voids but each part has its difficulty required.

The Protea Neuroptics Blueprint is obtained by doing a Granum Void using a Granum Crown, while the Chassis Blueprint can be rewarded using an Exemplar Granum Crown.

Protea Systems is the hardest to obtain and requires that you use a Zenith Granum Crown when doing a Granum Void.

The Protea farm locations that have Granum Voids are on Corpus Ship Tilesets.

Protea Chassis

Protea Systems


Protea is capable of dealing intense amounts of damage to enemies with her grenades or artillery units that she can deploy.

She is capable of ensuring the safety of her allies as well as making sure they can replenish their needs from time to time.

When the time calls for it, Protea can bend the very fabric of time and return to a previous state after leaving behind a Temporal Anchor.

Passive Ability

Whenever Protea has cast 3 abilities, her next ability cast will have bonus Ability Strength, which is reset upon casting a 4th ability, and the cycle repeats.

1) Grenade Fan

When the Grenade Fan ability is cast, Protea will throw out grenades in an arc in front of her, which will create a slashing vortex that staggers enemies.

An alternate cast with this ability by holding it down will release Shield Satellites instead, which protect Protea and her allies with overshields. (Satellites are destroyed when shields break)

This ability allows Protea to act offensively or defensively to damage enemies and pull them together or to restore ally shields to help them survive.

2) Blaze Artillery

Protea deploys an artillery unit that fires plasma charges at enemies within its line of sight, dealing high amounts of heat damage.

The damage from the artillery unit increases for each enemy that is hit, making multiple shots deal more damage than the previous ones.

Blaze Artillery is great for holding off a spot or defending targets from enemies and to make things better, Protea can summon multiple units.

Each Artillery Unit deployed will have its duration, which can be increased by adding Ability Duration to your builds.

3) Dispensary

Protea deploys a device that will release 3 pickups after a short delay, which can be either empowered health orbs, universal ammunition, or energy orbs.

The pickups are chosen at random and there is a chance for an extra pickup to be released, which is based on Ability Strength.

A small cost of energy is needed to release this gadget and the exchange for multiple pickups will come in handy for you and your allies.

Dispensary Stats (Rank 3)


75 Energy

25 Seconds

Extra Pickup Chance


Augment Mod: Repair Dispensary allows you to use an alternate cast by holding this ability which will revive a Sentinel or Companion Moa of a player within 14 meters every 60 seconds.

Repair Dispensary is currently the only option for Protea Augment Mods.

4) Temporal Anchor

Upon casting this ability, Protea drops a Temporal Anchor, which allows her to rewind and trigger a temporal implosion.

The Implosion damages enemies in an area based on how much damage has been done between the time the Temporal Anchor was dropped until implosion.

Anything lost or used during the effects of Temporal Anchor will cause them to be replenished after the implosion and dying after dropping one will rewind and save Protea.

Temporal Implosion is great for dealing massive amounts of damage with no costs to Protea and it may come to save Protea from death in certain situations.

Temporal Anchor Stats (Rank 3)


100 Energy

8 Seconds

Implosion Damage

25% Blast
Implosion Range

Protea is excellent when it comes to all kinds of missions due to the many gadgets that she possesses in her arsenal.

Setting up multiple Artillery Units is capable with the right modding and her Grenade Fan ability can deal a lot of damage or provide high amounts of shields.

You can be a bit reckless with Protea and get away with it since Temporal Anchor can often save her life and increase the amount of damage you can do with its implosion.

Overall Protea can do a lot with the unique abilities she has and even better when these are strategically used in battle.
