In what way? Her flying?
I found the fight mostly easy, aside from glitches and the fact that I'm currently leveling up a Mote Amp. There's not much need for normal abilities and guns most of the time.
The flying is helping with mobility yes. The fact that her guns are also massively overpowered in the right build also. together with my Anti-Eidolon Amp and the Birbalys is toast
Knowing DE, theres gonna be stronger versions of Ropalolyst. (are they even aware people made loli jokes about it?)
Eh for a Assassination Boss Birbalyst is on the upper end of toughness.
Its's just running into issues when facing people who go tenno a sentiento with Eidolons out of boredom.
On a lazy sunday, I finally decided to familiarize myself with the new Captura Camera's

Finally got around to exploring the new Jupiter and meeting the Birb with my old clan leader.
I was not expecting DEEPEST LORE, but clearly DEEPEST LORE was expecting me. And I am totally down for that. Gives me a ton to mull over.
Man, I never would've guessed Warframe would have one of the strongest core narratives of any loot-based game I've ever played, if not the strongest. Back when I started, the community freaked out when we found out Darvo was Frohd Bek's kid just because there was actual story involved, and now we're getting insane worldbuilding and lore bombs and OH SHIT plot developments all over the place- and of course there was the "take away its pain" sequence in The Sacrifice, one of the most moving experiences I've ever had in a video game. I'll miss some of the old charms the game had back in its first year or two of existence, but I absolutely love where the story's going now. I'll defend Destiny's lorebooks and story tabs to the end, but even the crazy revelations, the cryptic foreshadowing, the glorious Silmarillion-esque epics we've been getting for the past nine or so months that take everything I ever knew about the lore and tie it into knots around my friggin' throat... it's never gotten me quite as hyped was when I dropped into what I expected to be a relatively normal boss mission and was promptly greeted by the Lotus.
...oh, right, gameplay is a thing too. Uh. Clan leader was kinda going a bit nuts gushing over the Jupiter rework, with all the new interactive scenery and how cool everything looked, and while I'm not quite over the moon, I am having a lot of fun with it, even if the tiles feel a bit more cluttered (as the newer tilesets are wont to do). Similarly, the bossman considers the Birbalyst itself to mechanically be the best boss fight in the game, and while I dunno if I'd call it that myself (it still handles pretty jankily for certain mechanics, and its body is kind of a mess to visually parse), I definitely had a ton of fun dancing between cables and, ahem, taking the boss for a ride, if you get my drift. Not perfect, but still good stuff. Can't wait to see my his bro's reaction.
In the category "Stupid ideas while grinding mastery fodder stuff."
I do love Warframe's story. Yeah the plot-to-hour ratio is pretty thin, but that's to be expected. Since I've started playing, there hasn't been a single plot point where I said "wait no, that's stupid." There are a few that I don't like, but that's different. I'm not super fond of the Lotus turning to the Sentients, but it's well-done, and I loved how Ballas immediately got his comeuppance because even if the Lotus is supposedly "in love" with him, she's not an Orokin and doesn't have anywhere near the same ideals as him.
So I'm probs about to get back into Warframe. I have an Excalibur and a Zephyr, but I'm stuck on the Orb Vallis mission where I have to protect the excavator while it's getting some type of ore to prevent a meltdown. I can't seem to keep enemies at bay with Ex (I've got pretty good DPS especially with Exalted Blade and all the mods I've thrown him) and I sure as hell don't stand a chance doing it with my Zephyr. Might still have Oberon floating around, but I'm trying to build a Volt.
Despite where it's located, the Vallis is fairly high level content. If your mods aren't up to snuff, it might be worth coming back later
Frost is a pretty solid choice for any mission that needs you to protect a stationary object.
He's also easy to get; just grind the bosses on Ceres.
But yeah, the free roam areas are pretty high-level. Fill out the star chart, then come back to them. You'll have better weapons and mods.
JOVIAN CONCORD IN CONSOLE CERT WOOT!!!!
Alright, PC Tenno, anything I need to farm to "set up" for Wisp?
Just the new Hexanon resource, which you can get from the new Disruption mission type. Technically you can get it anywhere on revamped Jupiter, but it drops mostly from amalgams, and Disruption has the most of those.
It also drops from extractors.
So nothing much I can do until the official drop. Tuesday, hopefully. Console cert doesn't take long.
She also needs 1 argon, 2 tellurium, and 2 nitain.
I'm good, then. (Although the argon will more than likely disintegrate before I get the blueprints for Wisp.)
MR 24 *dances*
So Disruption is basically "mobile defense, but there's only one enemy you really have to worry about".
Alright, giving the new boss a shot. Pray for me.
I was ready for a new boss fight. I wasn't ready for all the precision bullet jumping I had to do to get to the new boss.
And I REALLY wasn't ready for Space Mom.
....what the hell was she talking about?
Damn it DE I still want my Afuris Prime.
Dex Furis are awesome but their greatest weakness is ammo management, unfortunately.
Even with Carrier, past a certain point, it can't keep up with ammo conversion for it. Who thought 400 ammo pool was a good idea? It should be 800-1000.
Frikken Twin Grakatas has... 1200? 1300? Something like that.
There's certainly a lot to unpack with the Lotus. So apparently she was specifically designed to infiltrate and destroy the Orokin, in contrast with the rest of the Sentients who were, essentially, peaceful farmers and builders. She says the Orokin brainwashed her into caring for the Tenno, but last we checked Hunhow was still planning to brainwash her, so he might have just made her think she was brainwashed the first time.
And it's all hard to tell because the timeline for the Old War is still weird. When exactly did the Sentients turn on the Orokin? When did the Orokin find the Zariman 10-0, build the warframes, and have the Tenno tame them? How long did the Tenno fight the Old War, when did they win, and how long between their victory and their destruction of the Orokin? And once we've figured out all that, when exactly did the Lotus get involved?
Nightwave intermission out; no new story, but new rewards.
