Usage

Activate ability


Discharge.png Discharge

Discharge
Paralyze nearby hostiles with a damaging electric charge, this also shocks approaching enemies.
Cost: 100
Warframe: Volt

and paralyze nearby hostiles with a damaging electric charge for a duration, effectively making them into a power pylon which also shocks approaching enemies. A % of damage dealt will bolster volt and allies shields. Attack an enemy with scourge which procs a status effect and activates growing power to further damage enemies. This build has negative strength so as to stun and damage enemies for longer before they die. A higher power strength build kills enemies quickly which decreases its CC(Crowd Control) and causes higher energy consumption for frequent recasts. This build can kill most high level enemies before the duration expires, or used in conjunction with scourge can and will clear an area of enemies as well as increasing survivability for teammates.

If energy weapon fire is an issue, cast

Variation

Any other status based weapon can be used, though a weapon that deals AoE(Area of Effect) damage with a good fire rate can be a good choice.

Counters

Nullifiers can counter this build very easily if they aren't taken down quickly. Watch out for energy draining effects. Utilize volts shield to protect against weapons fire.

While I can see the idea behind the build, this is far from meta. Warframe is about endlessly murdering enemies, this build doesn't facilitate that. You'll stall out defense missions, the opposite of what you want. Having no damage doesn't help survival. You don't kill anyone and you don't help anyone kill monsters faster, unless they bunker up at your shields. I definitely wouldn't take this setup for anything after the star chart.. The amount of credit/endo investment the build requires, while offering so little compared to others makes this far from meta. Definitely a niche variant of CC with some support.
