Warframe Rhino Farming Tips

In general, Prime blueprints drop from relics which you find in missions. Wukong Prime, for example, drops from Lith W1, Meso K2, Neo S12, and Axi G2 relics. Some blueprints are rarer drops than others so you’ll need varying numbers of each relics. It also helps to do a relic share with others while the vault is opened. That way you’re more likely to get the piece you need since you can choose to keep any drop from the squad.

Don’t worry about stockpiling relics, however. What’s inside relics never changes. You’ll need to grind all-new relics once the unvaulting happens.

We’ll be back with more details and recommended missions once the vault opens up!
