So yesterday my Harrow finished cooking, I ranked him to 30 and shoved a potato down his throat. His abilities seem cool, albeit primarily focused on team support. However the real reason I wanted him was to be better able to do eidolon runs. From what I've read, he's used for his 4, applying invulnerability to damage and status procs to the team, and then boosting crit chance after. I imagine this will make fights go faster than the previous couple times I've done them as Oberon.

My question, though, is this: if my main responsibility is for casting 4, and doing so makes popping the next limb happen that much faster, should I even bother hopping into spoiler mode to do a pittance of damage with my Mote? It seems like it might be best to just stay in the frame and be ready to shoot with my lanka.

What are people modding their Lenz's like? I know to stack a ton of fire rate to make the charge time less painful but is there anything else I should prioritize for it?

I have most of that, does any goon have a spare Vile Acceleration or Hunter Munition they want to trade? I...can't really offer anything but I don't have a 4-man squad to run Orokin Vaults with and I don't know when Ghouls are going to show back up.

Solo excavation has absolutely garbage spawn rates.

I did an excavation Rift mission and I donít know what was going on but I saw maybe 3 enemies spawn with power canisters the entire time. I beat it almost entirely by incrementally increasing the bar based on whatever the drill spawned with and it sucked.

There were TONS of enemies but itís like the Rift nature of the spawns broke the actual mission.

You'll run into some debate about Lenz setups.

I have infected clip because of the Lenz having two default - polarities but this is 3 forma.


I prefer the multishot from vigilante armaments and speed trigger is a sufficient boost in speed to me without sacrificing any of the damage from vile acceleration.

If I had spare forma right now and an affinity booster I'd probably change that -- polarity that i just used infected clip as a filler on to a D polarity and add cryo rounds like edmonds.

I legitimately think this happens. Excavation rifts are one of the two things I just WILL NOT DO solo anymore. The other is Defection. You have to be in too many places at once that are too far apart to make the spawns/protection work.

This horse has a wack case of poo brain!


So despite being anti hunter munitions - lenz build in thread, apparently that's how I'm setup already in game so... whelp so I just got a multishot crit damage lenz riven tht I've thrown in heavy caliber's slot, let's see if it meets the inaros test.

Also, what frame can I gussy up most like clem? I am having terrible gimmick ideas. I'm thinking rhino...

I may run this setup until I can find/get a vile acceleration, 5 forma, and a primed Cryo Round, because I have all of those mods.

Also running the Lenz + Mirage/Mirage Prime for Infested Survivals is hilariously fun. I haven't had this much fun with a weapon since Ogris was good.

What's a basic (0 forma) build for someone who's just picking it up?

Those mods, just not as upgraded.

You don't really need the expensive mods like serration, split chamber and heavy caliber maxed out. You still poo poo trains with the lenz. Just work on point strike/vital sense so you can reliably hit those orange and red criticals and upgrade things as you can afford them.

Alone, she fights.


If you're running maxed Serration (+165% damage) and HCal (also +165% damage), Vile Acceleration (-15% damage) works out to only a 4.5% damage decrease (430% -> 415% damage). Speed Trigger gives you a charge time of 1.2 -> 0.54s, and Vile Acceleration gives you a charge time of 1.2 -> 0.43s, so it's basically up to whether you value the 0.11s charge time difference or the 4.5% damage. Lenz is usually wildly overkill damage-wise, so I take the 20% lower charge time.

Obviously infected clip can be any 90% element, but even this build out damages most weapons in the game.
