Alongside the Angels of Zariman update comes the Void Armageddon game mode, which is a new Endless type mission in which you’ll have to kill enemies all while protecting the Zariman’s Reliquary.
As such, you’ll want to prepare your arsenal for this mission in order to increase your chances of success.
All You Need to Know about Void Armageddon in the New Angels of Zariman Update in Warframe
The mechanics of this game mode is pretty simple: defend the Reliquary inside the Zariman ship from various waves of enemies trying to destroy it. You will be assisted in the defense by Exodampers which are towers that will weaken your enemies, allowing you to wipe them with ease.
However, in the event these Exodampers are destroyed, they will give a random buff to your enemies instead. Though they’re not really important, they work as a great distraction as you finish off waves upon waves of enemies.
As chaos keeps on growing, Void manifestations will start drawing out the energy inside the Reliquary. You can see this percentage via the icon above it. If the Reliquary has been drained completely, then the mission will fail as well.
Therefore, you have to do your best not to let it get destroyed or drained by your enemies.
How to Play Void Armageddon in Warframe
The Void Armageddon game mode consists of both Waves and Rounds. Basically, each Round consists of three waves, and each Wave will consist of a squad of enemies that will automatically attack the Exodamper.
As you progress through rounds, the enemies’ attack patterns will change. This means you’ll have to follow instructions on the HUD to know which Exodamper they will be targeting.
If an Exodamper is destroyed, it will always respawn at the 4th wave, so this is also something you want to keep in mind.
As for the enemies, your biggest worries would be the Void manifestations which will appear every three ways.
While you can beat them the standard way, using your Operator will make the fight a lot more manageable. And as long as you successfully win, you alongside your team will get Focus Points alongside a high-tier Voidplume as a loot.
You can choose extraction once you complete one round of Void Armageddon, though you can choose to stay for more rewards. You can make things a lot more manageable through the help of Zariman’s tech.
There are specialized turrets called Armaments that can deal with enemies at any angle, though you’ll have to construct them first.
To do so, you’ll need Argozene which you can get from Argozene Drops. These drops can be found in an indicated zone, and you’ll have to stand within that zone and wait until it’s enveloped in energy before you can open the chest.
You can also obtain Argozene from enemies, albeit at a smaller amount. But since it is shared among your team, you can optimize the number of Argozenes you can get via proper coordination.
There are four different Armaments you can craft including a minigun turret called Mazuka, an arc lightning turret called Faradon, a laser targeted missile launcher called Giottica, and a trap turret called Corralizer.
Total War Three Kingdoms: Court Guide
Going to war and managing your troops in the heat of battle has always been the core gameplay of Total War, either that or deliberately heading straight into battle outgunned or outnumbered in order to test the mettle of your troops. But with the Three Kingdoms things can get mighty confusing when you’re not out fighting. You’d be surprised how something as simple as choosing who to put on councils can take up your time when you’re not quite sure of your decisions. That will all go away as we show you the way of heaven’s will in this guide and lead your kingdom to prosperity!
Court Guide | Total War Three Kingdoms
Now the court is made up of your faction leaders, heirs, and your administrators. You manage your dynasty here as you unlock more positions when you progress. Let’s go further into detail below and see how you can manage your people better.
While you’re in the in-game map click on the Court button or press 2 to bring up the rest of your family tree. What you can do here first is to hover over everyone’s portraits to see the positive and negative benefits they can offer if they’re to be assigned to a certain position.
Next thing that you should be on the lookout for is the character’s Background. You can find this by hovering over the general’s name, there’s plenty of generals each with their own unique background so be careful who you choose! For this example, Liu Bei is a Virtuous Idealist. That helps you with public order and upkeep but gives you 25% less income due to their poor background.
Another interesting thing to keep in mind are the basic Traits. You will have to keep a close eye on this as it influences character relations throughout the campaign. Same with the Background, there are numerous Traits in the game and your character can earn more as you progress with them.
Of course besides the individual Traits and Backgrounds you also would want to know more about navigating the Court itself. Each individual position in the court will have its own explanation and allows you to see the rank required in order to unlock it.
You can choose good old fashioned nepotism and assign a post to a family member or a general who’s done actual work with their own hands. Each character will offer various bonuses depending on the position they’re assigned to.
Remember – not all your characters need to be out in the field as some of them are more proficient with administrative affairs. The pen is mightier than the sword, and all of that.
Now that you’ve assigned a post to the members of your Court the next thing you need to do is to make sure everyone is satisfied. You wouldn’t want someone in a position of power to complain and suddenly decide it would be in their best interest to rebel! That gets in the way of prosperity and no one wants that.
In order to view a character’s Satisfaction go and hover over their character panel or check the characters list on your campaign screen. If you choose the character panel check to the right of their age in order to see their opinion about you.
Some of the things you can do to make sure they don’t look elsewhere is to make sure that the post you assigned to them is compatible with their class. For example if your character’s class is Sentinel then you would want to make that character into an Administrator.
Lastly, it’s recommended that you assign a post that complements their level. Give them a post that’s too out of reach for them and their satisfaction will suffer just as much. Now that’s good work ethic!
And that is how you manage internal affairs in Total War: Three Kingdoms. Now that you know the intricacies of the court you can be your very own Sun Tzu and lead by example!
