Harrow from Warframe's Chains of Harrow Update

After being briefly teased for around a week Warframe's Chains of Harrow Update has now finally made its way to the live servers. It brings with it a brand new support-orientated Warframe by the name of Harrow, a new story related quest to acquire its schematics, a remastered Earth tileset, a new Grineer enemy, a bunch of new and reworked weapons, and the list goes on.

On first glance you might think that Harrow is all about aggression given that he's constantly shrouded in red mist, but in reality he's all about empowering himself and his teammates. He's capable of pinning enemies to the floor while reinforcing his shields, and then sacrificing all of those shields in order to boost reload speed, fire rate, and lifesteal. He also has a bit of a weird spell called the Thurible which requires him to channel energy into a metal container, after which all nearby kills will grant allies bursts of energy, with headshots giving off much larger pulses of energy. This snyergises rather well with his ultimate that not only absorbs damage, but also converts that absorbed damage into a critical chance bonus from himself and his allies. In other words, if you're playing as Harrow you really want to aim for the head!

As with pretty much every new frame you will only be able to create Harrow after you complete his new story quest, the above mentioned Chains of Harrow. However, before you're even capable of doing so you'll first need to complete The War Within and unlock Mot in the Void. Its not a particularly hard requirement, but it is worth keeping in mind if you're a relatively new player looking to expand your roster.

If you're interested in learning more about the Chains of Harrow Update and all of the changes that come with it, you'll find what you seek on the official website. And finally, here's a brief video showcasing what exactly Harrow is all about. Enjoy!
