The Wisp Warframe
Wisp is one of the most elegant design and fun to play warframe available.
It comes with the best fluent movements and transitional animations in game and can be moded to tank, buff and defend.
Wisp is the first Warframe design with no feet on her model, as a result she floats above ground constantly and while in the air she become invisible.
At the time of writing there is no Wisp prime Warframe available.
Let’s see why the Warframe Wisp is so lovable among many players.

Here passive ability is cloak for her and her Companions while she is airborne.
Wisp’s cloak makes her invisible to enemies until she lands or fires a weapon.
One great thing is, the Invisibility ability is not affected by Melee weapon strikes!
Allowing Wisp to use Melee weapon and still remain Invisible.
While cloak is active Wisp glows and emits energy particles according to chosen Energy color in her appearance.

Nitain Extract is most easily obtained form Nightwave Cred Offering store for 15 cred.
You can find an Argon Crystal from the Orokin Void missions and Assassination missions as well,
but pay attention to the decay period of this resource to use it before it’ll disappear.
Tellurium is also a rare necessary component for the neuroptics blueprint and

Wisp was the first Warframe designed with a completely unique walking, sprinting and rolling animations.
However, when crouching, gun aiming, wielding an Arch-gun in ground combat, or extracting from a mission she still uses default animations.
Wisp agile animation set (50 platinum)
Purchasing this set allows you to use Wisp’s agile animation set with any Warframe you choose.
Wisp noble animation set (50 platinum)
Purchasing this set allows you to use Wisp’s noble animation set with any Warframe you choose
Wisp Build for Speed and Strength
This build uses only two forma!
Two of the mods are Augar and one is prime ,It’s good when you need speed in capture and farming missions.
Wisp Build for Range
This is also a two forma build that has more than double armor compared to the speed build and 175% range.
It has Less efficiency and duration but almost the same strength.
It’s best for utilizing wisp cloak where she can stay longer in the air while been invisible.
Wisp Build for Duration
This is a 3 forma build that has 152% duration,less efficiency than the first build, same range of 100% and some
less strength of 234%.
Good build for exploiting Wisp’s abilities to make duration longer.
Wisp is the 40th Warframe and a very nice addition to the game.
She can be a great buff, crowd control, defender or tanky Warframe all according to your
preferences and your personal play style.
It may be hard to farm Wisp but I defiantly love playing her and I think she’s excellent frame in any Tenno arsenal.
