Dagath is the newest addition to the already-massive Warframe roster. Added in the Abyss of Dagath update, she is a Halloween-themed Warframe with plenty of too spook to go around. Her kit centers around dealing damage with the Viral status and it spreading around like wildfire. If you'd like to know more, keep reading, because I'm about to delve into the kit and how you can get her for your collection.
Warframe - Dagath, detailed
Despite her focus on the Viral status, Dagath's kit actually isn't all that complicated compared to several other frames in the roster. Let's dive right into it, starting with her Passive. When Dagath picks up Health Orbs or Energy Orbs, she has a set 35% chance to activate Abundant Abyss, which increases their total output, trifold. This is a decent passive, but far from what I'd consider strong due to the reliance on an outside source for it to work. Now for her abilities:
- Wyrd Scythes - Ghostly scythes surround Dagath and attack enemies. Those struck are slowed, afflicted with Viral, and dealt some damage. They also spread her second ability's mechanic, Doom. Costs a base 25 Energy.
- Doom - Enemies nearby suffer the unique Doom status, which inflicts a portion of Dagath's total damage dealt as Phantom Damage to the target in intervals of two seconds. Note that Phantom Damage is considered True damage, and cannot be resisted. Costs a base 50 Energy.
- Grave Spirit - Dagath's weapon gets a significant boost to Critical Damage, with the boost being doubled on Doomed targets. Additionally turns Dagath invulnerable for a short time. Costs a base 75 Energy.
- Rakhaili's Cavalry - A stampede of Phanthom Kaithes charge forward, dealing Viral damage to everything in their path. Doomed targets are stripped of their defenses. Costs a base 100 Energy.
So, as you can probably tell, Dagath's game plan is to inflict targets with both Viral and Doom statuses to utterly destroy them with Phantom damage. She is a damage-focused Warframe with very minimal defensive powers, so building her will require a degree of focus on survivability. Fortunately, Warframe has plenty of defensive mods that can help.

How to get Dagath in Warframe
Getting Dagath is very simple but does require a bit of a grind to accomplish. The first thing you're going to want to do is be in a Clan that has already built Dagath's Hollow within its Clan Dojo. This is a requirement, as research for Dagath's components requires it. If you're a solo player, you'll need to start up a Clan yourself and work your way toward building this unique room. Building the room takes 24 hours unless you speed up the process with Platinum.
Once you have Dagath's Hollow built, head to the Abyssal Zone, a uniquely flavored Exterminate mission located on Ceres.
To access and see this node, you'll need an Abyssal Beacon, which can be purchased from Faction Syndicates like the Arbiters of Hexis. Each clear of the mission rewards between six and eight Vainthorns, which is the primary resource needed to research Dagath. In terms of overall resources, Dagath costs:
- 70,000 Credits
- 102 Vainthorns
- 2,000 Alloy Plates
- 1,500 Salvage
- 1,000 Circuits
- 3 Neural Sensors
- 3 Neurodes
- 4 Morphics
- 2 Argon
- 5 Control Modules
- 4 Gallium
- 3 Orokin Cells
Quite the list of resources, but if you've been playing for a while, you probably have all but the Vainthorns. Once you have all these resources, head to your Foundry and build her components. As with all Warframe construction, be prepared to wait almost a week (or more depending on Research time) before Dagath is finished.
