Tenno, I would like to start off by saying, heh, I am glad you have chosen to step forward to me in this matter. In partnerships like this, there can only be mutual profit for the both of us. I know how… difficult, yes, it must be to come to me when so many of your… friends disapprove of my business. But you are bolder than that. You won’t let that Lotus hold you back from upholding a higher principle: that of looking to the future, and the vital need to be prepared for it.

Now, onto business. 

I have observed from my studies that the Nova Warframe has particular weaknesses in its shields and armor. Your vague specifications forced me to make some assumptions on your part, and I have taken the liberty of assuming that you are not as… biased against some of the more powerful types of augmentation as my last inquirer was. In this design, I have implanted Osprey-type shield enhancers on the thigh and bicep regions.

I have also augmented the energy power plants on this frame’s dorsal regions with additional enhancer rings. With the advantage of being run directly through the core processing units within the frame, the increased power can be routed into the gloves of the augment, which are triple-lined with an austenitic nickel-chromium-based superalloy (inconel) to prevent cracking and oxidation under the ultra massive stressors involved with the Warframe’s newly enhanced powers.

Do be advised that this particular set of augments is rather… costly. Please, do not let this dissuade you from, heh, coming to me to install these augments. 

I look forward to your… visit, Tenno.
