What melee weapon synergizes well with Saryn?

#1crunchy612Posted 6/23/2013 11:16:31 AM
I'm huge on planning ahead(i just started, Mag @ lvl 9/10), and for my first self made warframe i have my eyes set on Saryn.

For sure i'm getting the Barton and Aklato as my guns, and to make use of Saryn's 3rd skill. I'm sure heavy melee is out; i've seen my friend using a Scindo on Frost and it's too slow for what Saryn's 3rd seems to do.

Any help appreciated!

Mire does poison damage DoT on each hit. Could work well with extra poison damage from Saryn's 3. ... That said, I almost never used her #3 the entire time I played her. Her 4 is just too powerful to bother using anything else but it and 1.

It gives the same benefit to every weapon. Meaning no weapon will get more of a benefit.

Now I can't mind since it's been a long time. It used to only work on basic strikes and not on charge attacks. That might not be the case now, since this was many patches ago.

If this is still the case, then weapons you would use base attacks more would work better than charge based weapons. Like Ethers, Zorens, Fang etc.

While contagion isn't a bad ability and definitely has use her other three abilities clearly overshadow it.

Venom can deal absurd amount of damage on a single target (total of 800 I believe when you put max focus and continuity). Venom also stacks so if you need a hard single target skill look no further.

Molt is useful for what it does, no need to elaborate.

Miasma is the crowned queen of nukes in this game. With focus it deals about 1000 some total damage that ignores armor to ALL enemies within range. It's quick to cast as well.

Have a banshee on your team, have it cast sonar then you cast Miasma, you get 4x the damage to everything applied. Even extreme level ancients (lv 150+) won't survive 2-3 casts of that. Oh and it stuns if it doesn't kill.

Banshee's system's at freakin' Eris. :( i'm still looking for a clan to join actually, online is just a bust. Maybe i should set my Ping limit a bit higher, and change the region to everything(is this possible?).

Heck if Nyx wasn't also at Eris her and Banshee would be my first warframe goals. Hence Saryn. As for her 3rd, just having a better melee weapon than Cronus is a good thing, so this search is not just for Saryn but also for a reliable melee weapon.

Okay i was wrong about Banshee. I got a BP(Chassis i think) from M Prime. Those comments on wikia must be wrong.

Anyway, since Saryn's still far away, what is the closes Infested defense mission(for the Helmet)? Also, do all Spy missions(say, the first from Venus) have the same rate for the Systems, and if so, what's the exact chance?
