Ivara, the huntress, the thief. A Warframe expected to be crafted later into the game. Aiming for Ivara is recommended for operators capable of dealing with Level 25+ enemies and being adept at spy missions.
The only way to obtain Ivara’s blueprints is by completing the three tiers of spy missions.
It should be expected running through spy missions multiple times, as the parts are still quite rare even when run perfectly.
It is recommended to bring a bunch of cipher consumables, two blueprints for these can be purchased on the market.
The first blueprint is a single cipher worth 500 credits, the second is a blueprint that creates ten ciphers which is worth 250,000 credits, although pricey it saves a lot of time on creating ciphers via blueprints.
Ciphers are used to bypass a lot of the hacking involved in spy missions.
Stealth frames such as Limbo and Loki are incredibly useful within these missions, Limbo using his void rift to bypass lasers sensors and Loki using his invisibility to bypass scanners makes the grind much easier.

Farming Ivara Parts (Systems, Chassis, Neuroptics & Blueprint)
To obtain a blueprint successfully you will need to reach Rotation C on spy missions, which means three successful extractions are required to receive one component.
Even if an alarm is triggered as long as you are able to retrieve the data before its destroyed you can still receive the blueprints.
You can also receive the parts from nightmare and void fissure Spy missions.
- Systems can be obtained via tier one spy missions, these missions include any spy missions between level 1 – 15.
- Chassis can be obtained via tier two spy missions, these missions include any spy missions level 16 – 25.
- And last but not least the Neuroptics and Ivara Blueprint can be obtained via tier three spy missions, these missions include any spy mission level 26 or higher.

Building Ivara Parts
Ivara takes a total of twelve hours per piece plus the 72 hours to build her completely.
This process can be rushed with platinum initially costing 25 platinum each on the individual parts and 50 platinum to finish building the frame itself saving you three days of waiting.
Ivara is considered quite an expensive frame, however the power you gain from the grind is well worth the wait.
Ivara’s Abilities & Skills
Let’s take a look at the list of Ivara’s Abilities:
Sentry is Ivara’s passive:
- Spots Enemies within 20 meters.

- Increases the projectiles damage based on the amount of time in flight up to a max of 500%.
Prowl is Ivara’s third skill:
