Getting yourself a Baruuk can be super easy or super grindy, depending on where you currently stand in the grand scheme of Warframe, Fortuna and Vox Solaris. Especially the last one is very important, because you need to reach rank 3 (Hand) with the syndicate before you are able to trade standing for Baruuk’s blueprint parts with Little Duck. If you want to know more about farming standing and increasing your rank with the syndicate, we recommend reading through our Vox Solaris Standing Guide.
Another problem you might encounter is getting all the resources needed to craft Baruuk and his parts. You not only need credits and standard resources, but also some stuff you can only find on Orb Vallis and you’re going to do some fishing. More information about this and other things can be found in this guide!
Acquisition of Baruuk’s blueprints
Before you are able to buy yourself Baruuk and his blueprints you need to get yourself to rank 5 of the Solaris United Syndicate, which will take some time and needs you to grind standing for a few days/weeks. If you want to be as efficient as possible, we recommend reading through our Solaris United Standing Guide and start farming standing today. If you’re done with that, you need to play through the Profit-Taker Orb Heist missions and then talk to Little Duck in the backroom to trade the different Toroids of Fortuna for standing.
Once you reached rank 3 with that syndicate, you can start buying Baruuk part blueprints, which will cost you a total of 20.000 standing points. Buying the blueprints is actually the easy part of getting yourself a Baruuk, because getting enough standing is fairly easy and ‘only’ requires you to grind a bit. Once you’ve obtained the blueprints, the real farming can finally start.
What resources do you need and where do you get them?
Let’s start with the easy part – crafting Baruuk. Besides the three parts (Neuroptics, Systems and Chassis) you also need one Orokin Cell and 25.000 Credits. You should not have any problems getting those. Getting the resources for Baruuk’s parts is a little bit more troublesome and will result in you going out on the Orb Vallis and doing some farming.
There are some resources you should already have more than enough, but there is also a high chance that you do need to farm in certain areas of the Orb Vallis. Here is what you need for all the parts:
- 45.000 Credits
- 3.250 Salvage
- 2.850 Alloy Plates
- 2.500 Ferrite
- 150 Hespazym Alloy
- 10 Entroplasma
- 6 Calda Toroids
- 5 Ecosynth Analyzer
- 5 Marquise Thyst
- 5 Radiant Zodian
- 3 Vega Toroid
As you can see, some of those resources should already be in your inventory, while there is a good chance you need to farm others. So let’s break it down.
Salvage, Alloy Plates and Ferrite:
Those are common resources you find by simply progressing through the star chart. If you miss some of those, simply join an endless mission and stay there for a while.
Calda Toroids and Vega Toroids:
Toroids are a rare resource that drop on the Orb Vallis on certain spots. If you need some of those, get yourself into a Toroid farming group. It will also probably help if you follow our Toroid Farming Guide!
Hespazym Alloy, Marquise Thyst and Radiant Zodian:
All those resources are obtained by mining the raw minerals and crafting them in your foundry. The blueprints to craft those resources can be obtained by trading Solaris United standing with Smokefinger. Getting the minerals shouldn’t be a problem, since mining got a lot easier with the Fortuna changes. Just get yourself a Plasma Drill and run around Orb Vallis for a while. Getting the right resources is somewhat random, but if you invest 30 minutes to an hour in just looking for minerals, you’re probably good to go for most of the Fortuna content. You can even trade minerals you’re not going to use for extra Solaris United standing!
Entroplasma and Ecosynth Analyzer:
These resources need to be dismantled from a Fortuna fish. The Ecosynth Analyzer comes from the Synathid, which can be found in cave hotspots on the Orb Vallis. If you want to increase your chances to find one of those, get yourself Synathid Bait and Luminous Dye. Each Synathid yields one Ecosynth Analyzer, so you need to catch at least five of those.
Entroplasma on the other hand can be extracted from Tromyzons, another fish that can be found on the Orb Vallis. He spawns during cold weather and will be swimming around in pond hotspots, so get yourself to a pond and again use Luminous Dye and Tromyzon Bait for the best results. Since each Tromyzon gives one Entroplasma,you do need to catch at least ten of those!
To be honest, getting yourself a Baruuk doesn’t require a lot of skill. It won’t require you to become a masterful Tenno and overcome hard missions or maps. But you will need to grind a lot, staring with Solaris United standing and Vox Solaris standing. You also need to grind for those rare and new resources that were introduced with the Fortuna update.
That said, getting Baruuk will need some time, but there isn’t really potential for failing. You don’t really need to kill hard bosses or stay for a long time in endless missions. You don’t even have to be super lucky, since there isn’t much RNG involved in getting all the blueprints and resources. So start farming and have fun crafting and playing with Baruuk soon!
