for extra Health and Armor when damaged, however they are not essential, and only offer extra survivability. To ensure that Hunter Adrenaline kicks in early, a decaying dragon key can be used to remove most of Oberon's shields, allowing for nearly all incoming damage to be turned into energy.

This build thrives off of the interaction between Rage/Hunter Adrenaline (both mods convert incoming damage to health into energy) and

Renewal.png Renewal

Healing waves of energy flow outward from Oberon to his allies, regenerating health over time.
Cost: 25
Warframe: Oberon

(which can offer large amounts of health over time). By taking damage to health, Oberon gains energy, and that health is then regenerated by Renewal, using the energy that was just gained.

Adaptation is used to reduce incoming damage to an amount which can be regenerated, and Quick Thinking is used to give a short "buffer" for Oberon's health, in case the first burst of incoming damage would exceed Oberon's maximum HP pool. Phoenix Renewal's usage is largely for the rest of the team, and doesn't do much for Oberon, as it is activated before Quick Thinking is.


The majority of this build is based entirely on Renewal and Rage/Hunter Adrenaline, and as such most everything else can be changed. Other suggested variations include swapping Phoenix Renewal for Intensify. This build is a slight variation on StallordD's build, seen in his video "Goat God Ascension," modified to increase team-play, particularly in Arbitrations.


Anything that drains energy causes issues for this build, as it removes the main pool of Oberon's EHP. Energy Leach Eximi and Disruption Ancients are the largest examples of this, but special mention goes to any Nekros which uses

ShadowsOfTheDead.png Shadows Of The Dead

Shadows Of The Dead
Summons shadow versions of vanquished enemies to fight alongside you for a short period of time.
Cost: 100
Warframe: Nekros

. These shadows absolutely destroy the energy economy of Renewal, as they constantly decay health, meaning that if they are under Renewal's effect, they will count as a damaged teammate. Currently, the only solution to this is to avoid letting these shadows fall under Renewal's area of effect. As for energy sapping enemies, the spiteful might find it useful to bring a large single-target weapon, such as an Opticor to remove these annoyances.

Another special mention goes to Nullifiers, which have a unique interaction with Renewal. Instead of completely dispelling the ability, the Nullifier will instead make any ally which enters the bubble immune to Renewal until it is recast. As such, damaged allies will not drain extra energy, however, this effect also applies to Oberon. If an Oberon enters a Nullifier bubble, they will be immune to their own Renewal, canceling all effects thereof, while still affecting allies and draining energy. As such, a high fire rate secondary weapon is recommended to remove nullifiers with extreme predudice.

Good build, simple to read and simple to understand. Only problem that it is missing polarity order and some weakness mentioned in the TennoBattle discord.
