Want to get Warframe Sevagoth as quickly as possible? Of course you do. New Warframe story content released this week called The Call of the Tempestarii. In Call of the Tempestarii we get a story quest where we meet a ghost ship Railjack and its spectral captain, Sevagoth. We also get a plot that features a Railjack fight and a fight with Vala Glarios, a Corpus faction captain with a personal vendetta against this fearsome cadre. After completing this adventure, you have the option to add Sevagoth to your arsenal and his signature weapon, the Warframe Epitaph.
Sevagoth adds versatility to Warframe’s battlefield by charging his primary ability, Death Well. Here in this Warframe Sevagoth and Epitaph guide, I introduce you to the 46th frame of the game, show you how it works in combat with its signature weapon, and showcase a few versions to get you started.
Warframe Sevagoth Abilities: A Preview of the Tempestarii Captain
Here are Sevagoth’s abilities:
- Collect: The Shadow of Sevagoth flies outward, ravaging enemies in its path. Survivors are damaged by Death’s Harvest over time. The souls of the dead fill the Well of Death.
- Sow: Plant a Death Seed in nearby targets to drain their life force. Harvest what has been sown to detonate afflicted enemies, dealing a percentage of their health as radial damage. The souls of the dead fill the Well of Death.
- Darkness: Summons a radial pulse wave that traps and slows enemies, siphoning their life force for Deathwell. Allies within the wave steal health with each attack.
- Shadow exalted: When the Death Well is over 75% full, the form of the Shadow of Sevagoth is ready to be released. Tear apart the enemy with a collection of melee-focused abilities.
While Shadow’s design resembles that of Chroma’s Effigy, the former is a more polished version of it, mixed in with gameplay elements from other settings. A playable character instead of a buff sentry, Shadow changes the gameplay entirely by showing his own approach to melee combat and crowd control. He is able to draw enemies in the same way as Mag’s Pull with his Embrace ability, but mixing it with life stealing elements (Consume) and dealing damage, vulnerability, and debuffs in an area of. effect (Death’s Harvest).

Warframe Sevagoth Coins: How To Get Them
You get Sevagoth’s blueprint to complete the main quest, Call of the Tempestarii, but to build it you need to craft several components. As with every image, these components are the chassis, systems, and neuroptics, and you can get their blueprints as drops in the Void storms of Void Proxima, Pluto Proxima, and Neptune Proxima, with a drop chance of ten to one hundred for each of them. After the components are crafted, you can start building Sevagoth as follows:
- Plan of Sevagoth
- Sevagoth frame
- Sevagoth Systems
- Neuroptic Sevagoth
- Orokin cell x3
- 25,000 credits
Sevagoth Building Tips
Warframe Sevagoth Building Tips
You can assign mods to Exalted Weapon and Exalted Shadow, so you have to decide your approach. Invest at least 2 Forma in each configuration so that you can use the right mods.
For Sevagoth, range of abilities is the first priority, as the idea is to fill the Death Well as quickly as possible when we use Sow and Gloom. Use Overextended, Stretch, or Augur Reach, as the greater the distance the better. Ability strength is also a priority, and you can mix any version of Intensify with Augur Secrets and Power Drift in the Exilus slot. Flow should help you not run out of energy too quickly, and from there any investment in capacity efficiency (like Streamline) is welcome. In the Aura slot, my personal preference is Energy Siphon, which helps when we need to recover energy.
Exalted Shadow’s abilities benefit tremendously from solid ability strength, so try installing mods like Intensify, Power Drift, or Augur Secrets, or something a little spicier like “Blind Rage” or “Transient Fortitude. “. These skills are a little power demanding, so maximize the power pool with Flow, or its major version. Mods to improve the efficiency of abilities so that the cost is lower. Streamlined and ephemeral expertise should be more than sufficient for capacity effectiveness. If there is room, it is safe to invest in the capacity range by installing Stretch.
Shadow Claws have very high status chance and general critical values (they have the highest critical damage multiplier of any exalted weapon), so prioritize those stats. Any version of True Steel should help you achieve over 100% critical chance, so Berserker and Organ Shatter are a must for speed and damage. Any version of Pressure Point is also recommended for raw damage, and since it also has a high status chance, Condition Overload and Drifting Touch can help as well, along with any combination of elemental mods. My favorite would be Virulent Scourge and Voltaic Strike to get a corrosive exit with a status chance bonus, with a little twist adding life steal on my heavy attacks with Life Strike.
Warframe Epitaph Farm: How to get it
These days every frame comes with a signature weapon that has a different boost when you use it with its appropriate partner. In Sevagoth’s case, that weapon is Epitaph, a handgun that shoots different types of ammo depending on whether it’s loaded or not. It adds dynamism, which matches its versatile robot companion.
Blueprints for the weapon and components are dropped in the Void Storms located in Venus Proxima, Earth Proxima, and Saturn Proxima. Their fall rates vary by location, from ten percent chance on Earth and Venus, and between 12.5% and 15 percent at Saturn. Once the components are made, you can start building Epitaph as follows:
- Epitaph plan
- Epitaph barrel
- Epitaph Receiver
- Orokin cells x7
- 20,000 Credits
Tips for building epitaphs
Warframe Epitaph Building Tips
Epitaph does different damage depending on how you shoot. A fully charged shot deals slash and impact damage, with a very high critical chance (actually, the highest in the game for a secondary weapon) and high critical damage. Alternatively, Uncharged shots will inflict high status chance with guaranteed cold damage and a radial blast of blast damage.
Since the Epitaph does not have to reload and has no ammo reserves, focus on increasing its damage and multiple fire values with mods like Hornet Strike, Barrel Diffusion, Scorch or Frostbite. Or maximize its critical values with Target Cracker and Pistol Gambit. However, since projectiles fire low and Epitaph’s rate of fire is relatively slow, consider making room for Lethal Torrent and Lethal Momentum to mitigate these flaws.
