Warframe Mag Build Guide

April 28, 2014


Mag is a caster. Her shields are excellent, but her health and armor are low, so beware Toxic Ancients and Eviscerators. Her abilities are primarily offensive with a hint of CC. She is good for boss runs thanks to bullet attractor and her ability to clear out the weak enemies in many boss rooms quickly. She is also good for Hijack since she can recharge the team’s shields.

Aura: I use either Energy Siphon or Rifle Amp. You don’t need to use any particular aura with Mag. Any of them are fine.

Powers: Pull is the workhorse power for Mag. Use it every time you see a group of enemies. Bullet attractor helps increase DPS against bosses and Eximi. Shield polarize is good for the Void and for Hijack missions where you need to keep your allies’ shields up. Crush is a standard AOE ultimate with a bit of CC during the casting animation.

Polarities: V and -. Use V for Intensify and – for either Streamline, Fleeting Expertise, Stretch, or Rush.

Corrupted/Nightmare Mods: Fleeting Expertise or Blind Rage are good. Vigor is nice if you are playing against Infested and you need extra health.

Syndicate Mods:
Greedy Pull – Not particularly useful, especially if you have a Carrier sentinel.

Shield Transference – It provides a substantial defensive bonus when you use Shield Polarize. Use it if you need more survivability.

Other Mods: Anything you like really. Stretch, efficiency, and Transient Fortitude are good, but after that it doesn’t really matter.
