Here you have the Gara Warframe, Tenno

You all want to try this fine artwork, in appearance fragile as glass, but don’t be fooled by its delicate outsides, because in its interior lies a power capable of a destruction like you never seen before. If you can get her use it wisely, Tenno.

Warframe Gara

Let’s start with how, Tenno. How do you get the Gara warframe you ask? There is two ways to get this art of war masterpiece.

The first and simpler way is evident for many, specially for the privileged ones who can afford the luxury to spend a few hundreds Platinum. If that’s your case, it will be as simple as acquire her through the Market console of your ship.

And then we have the other way, the tough, traditional or whatever you want to call it. As you all know, each Warframe its composed of four different parts, and this one is no exception.
You can find each part in a different way. Let´s start:

PartHow to GetDrop Chance
Gara BlueprintQuest: Saya’s Vigil100%
Gara Chassis BlueprintBounties: Tier 17%
Gara Systems BlueprintBounties: Tier 27%
Gara Neuroptics BlueprintBounties: Tier 37%

To explain this more deeply:

  • The Quest: Saya’s Vigil. You can start this adventure talking with Konzu in Cetus and selecting the dialogue option “A Personal Favor”. If you want to know more about it go to our entry dedicated to this Quest.
  • The Bounties: For Bounties I mean the missions we can access talking to Konzu, in Cetus, selecting “Bounties” when we talk with him. The Tier means the difficulty, and represent the enemy level, having 5 Bounty levels. We can find the Blueprints of each Gara part in the three lower Tier Bounties. (T1: 5-15; T2: 10-30; T3: 20-40).

Gara Abilities

Now we are going to talk about Gara abilities, like the other Warframes, Gara has four powerful abilities, which can help you on any situation; besides, it also has one passive ability we will discuss later.

1. Shattered Lash

Lash out with stream of shattered glass, or hold for an arcing strike.

Gara Shattered Lash

As we can see, this ability is affected by mods which affect its Strength and Reach.

2. Splinter Storm

Gara’s armor splinters into a maelstrom of shattered glass that slices enemies and impairs their weapons. Allies who contact the cloud are fortified against damage.

Gara Splinter Storm

This time, the ability is affected by mods which affect Strength, Reach and Duration.

Whether we want to use it in a Direct Offensive (Against the enemies) or Indirect way (on our allies and us), in this case I recommend use Strength and Duration over Reach. Being Reach the most important one if we use it against enemies instead of allies.

3. Spectrorage

Trap enemies in a carousel of mirrors, forcing them to attack visions of their true selves. Destroyed mirrors damage their attackers, as does the collapse of the carousel.

Gara Spectrorage

This ability is only affected by Strength and Duration. The Strength will enhance the number of mirrors and the damage they do.

4. Mass Vitrify

Create an expanding ring of molten glass that slowly crystallizes enemies who enter. When the expansion is complete, the ring hardens to block weapons fire. The ring draws extra strength from health and shields of crystalized enemies. Using Shattered Lash will smash the ring and send razor-sharp glass flying outward.

As you can see, Gara’s fourth ability can be a tactical advantage if it is used correctly. This ability is mainly defensive, although it also has some offensive capabilities.

To begin with, we emphasize the aspects of this ability which depend on Gara’s power. The most interesting thing for you to improve will be Reach and Duration. This way, the ring will reach further, and the effects of the crystallization will last longer.

From now on we are going to explain some things that can be a little confusing. The first one is that Duration also reduces the energy consumption per second.

The second one is that the maximum height of the ring is 14 meters, and the higher point depends on the point where the ability activates. This is very important, because if we activate it on a high spot, the enemies can enter below it, and this ability will have no effect on them. So be careful with the high, Tenno.

The damage multiplier will apply to the crystallized enemies, and the blast damage to the enemies outside the ring. Both effects depend on the Strength. To break the ring with shattered lash you will have to be outside the ring and use the first ability on it.

With all this we can say that if you want to focus on the defensive form of this ability, you will have to maximize both Duration and Reach. If you also want to take advantage of its offensive capabilities I recommend you to maintain a balance between those two and the Strength. In this case we do not mention the Efficiency because the effects Duration has, even so it can also be interesting improve it.

Something many Tenno try to get is a balance between Strength and Efficiency, a delicate balance I must say, even more if we use Corrupted mods like Blind Rage or Intolerant among others. But think that you can always achieve this balance using Tools like Energy packs (revisa nombre) and mods like Flow or Primed Flow.

Although, in my judgment, this always depends on the combat style and limitations of each Tenno.

Another interesting fact about Gara abilities are the damage multipliers the second and fourth ability offer, something we can use in your missions and depends entirely on the ability Strength.

Passive Ability: Glint

“Standing in bright light, Gara has a chance to blind enemies within 12 meters for 10 seconds”

The enemies affected by this passive ability are vulnerable to stagger attacks and giving the attackers a x4 damage multiplier.

This is everything we have hitherto, we keep investigating this new Gara Warframe to offer the more detailed and useful information, advice and “tricks” to make the most of its combat abilities.
I hope this information are useful for you, Tenno

As always, if you find any mistake or missing information, we would appreciate it if you let us know through the comments below. Also, we like to know your opinion about this Warframe, as well as the different combat strategies you use.

Good hunting!
