How to unlock Yareli in Warframe

Yareli is the latest addition to Warframe‘s staggering roster, giving players an agile new character that uses the devastating power of the ocean to decimate her foes. Like all Warframes before her, however, obtaining Yareli takes quite a bit of legwork.

While it’s certainly a time-consuming process to unlock Yareli, there’s nothing particularly tricky about it. Instead, you just need to know where to search for all her components and make time to gather up a bunch of fairly common resources.

Here’s what you need to know to craft Yareli in Warframe.

Required components for Yareli

Before you go out hunting for components, you’ll need to know what you’re looking for. As is the case with all Warframes, Yareli requires tons of different pieces in order for crafting to begin. Here’s what you’ll need to be on the lookout for:

  • Yareli Blueprint
  • Yareli Neuroptics
  • Yareli Chassis
  • Yareli Systems
  • 3x Orokin Cells
  • 25,000 Credits

Only once you’ve gathered all these components can the crafting process begin.

How to obtain the Yareli Blueprint

Your first step to obtaining Yareli is completing the new Waverider quest. So long as you’ve completed the Vox Solaris mission, you should have a message in your inbox asking you to head to Fortuna and take on the new quest.

The quest itself is fairly lengthy — and you’ll want to make sure you know how to handle a K-Drive — but there’s nothing particularly difficult about it. Take your time, follow those objective markers, and slowly work your way through the book of tasks. Once that’s finished, you’ll be rewarded with the Yareli Blueprint.

Build the Bash Lab in your Clan Dojo

Now that you’ve got your hands on her Blueprint, you can finally work toward collecting the rest of Yareli’s components. Unlike many other Warframes, you won’t be gunning down bosses or farming maps to unlock the Chassis, Neuroptics, and System. Instead, you’ll need to build the Bash Lab in your Clan Dojo. Keep in mind that building requirements for Bash Lab will vary based on Clan size, but these are the starting numbers:

Bash Lab requirements

  • 450 Ferrite (found on Mercury, Earth, Neptune, and Orokin Void)
  • 250 Circuits (found on Venus, Ceres, and Kuva Fortress)
  • 100 Thermal Sludge (found in containers on Orb Vallis)
  • 1 Forma (must be crafted or purchased)
  • 1,000 credits

With the Bash Lab built, you can now start researching the remaining Yareli parts. Here are the requirements for all three:

Yareli Neuroptics

  • 1 Detonite Injector (reward for completing Grineer Invasions)
  • 1 Neurodes (found on Deimos, Earth, Lua, and Eris)
  • 500 Rubedo (found on Earth, Pluto, Europa, and Sedna)
  • 1,000 Alloy Plate (found on Jupiter, Venus, and Ceres)
  • 10,000 Credits

Yareli Chassis

  • 1 Mutagen Mass (can be crafted in the Bio Lab)
  • 1 Morphics (found on Mars, Mercury, and Europa)
  • 500 Polymer Bundle (found on Mercury, Uranus, and Venus)
  • 1,000 Salvage (found on Jupiter and Mars)
  • 10,000 credits

Yareli Systems

  • 1 Fieldron (can be Crafted and is rewarded after completing Corpus Invasions)
  • 1 Gallium (found on Mars and Uranus)
  • 500 Circuits (found on Ceres and Venus)
  • 1,000 Nano Spores (found on Neptune, Saturn, and Eris)
  • 10,000 Credits

Start crafting Yareli

Once you’ve purchased the remaining Yareli parts, you can head back to your Orbiter and officially begin the crafting process. It’ll take a full 72 hours for it to complete — so feel free to use the time to knock out anything else on your to-do list.

Purchase the Sisters of Parvos Riptide Pack

If you don’t want to go through all the hassle of manually crafting Yareli, you can always pick up the new Sisters of Parvos Riptide Pack to gain immediate access to the Warframe. The DLC pack costs $39.99 and comes with the following content:

  • 450 Platinum
  • Yareli Warframe
  • Ambassador Rifle
  • Waverider’s Heart Decoration
  • Ambassador Tenet Skin
  • Boomie Glaive Skin
  • Ventkid Noggle
  • Waverider #1 Poster
  • Kompressa Pistol
  • Merulina Syandana
  • Merulina Domestik Drone
  • Yareli Aquablade Sigil

Half the fun of a new Warframe is going through the crafting process, so we don’t recommend buying the DLC pack unless you’re eager to jump right into playing as the aquatic character.

Yareli skills overview

Yareli plays a bit different than other Warframes — not only does she have a variety of crowd control abilities, but she comes with her own unique K-Drive. Here are the four skills you’ll need to master after crafting Yareli.

  • Sea Snares: Form three water globules that seek out enemies and expand on contact, simultaneously damaging and immobilizing their victims.
  • Merulina: Summon Merulina, a rideable creature of the waves and the inspiration for K-Driving. Merulina protects Yareli by absorbing a large portion of incoming damage.
  • Aquablades: Tear through foes with a trio of orbiting aquatic blades.
  • Riptide: Drag enemies into a crushing maelstrom and then blow them away in a watery burst. Each enemy trapped in the vortex increases the burst’s damage.

How to change your appearance in Baldur’s Gate 3
A party of four adventures walking through a mushroom forest in the Underdark

Making your character can take a long time if you really want to get all the details right. From your race, class, hairstyle, and more, you have a lot of options to tweak before ever starting your adventure. If you're a little too excited, you might end up slacking off on making your character and assuming you can update it later just so you can get right into the action. If so, or you simply want to change up your look after a couple of hours into this massive game, you'll be at a loss as to how, if you even can, change your appearance in Baldur's Gate 3. You may not fully like the answer, but here's the best you can do in terms of altering your appearance after you've exited the character creator.
Can you change your appearance in Baldur's Gate 3?

The answer to this is technically yes, but not in the way you would hope. To get it out of the way, no, there's no way to return to the character creation screen after you've finalized your character. Unlike respeccing your character, there's no NPC, item, or magic mirror anywhere in The Forgotten Realms that will let you change your appearance.

Is Baldur’s Gate 3 cross-platform?
A Baldur's Gate 3 character lights the way.

The biggest CRPG of the year, if not ever, promises a huge adventure that you are encouraged to play cooperatively with up to four friends. While online play is expected in the modern era, Baldur's Gate 3 surprisingly also supports split-screen co-op on every PC and PS5 as well, meaning you can run an entire campaign with a friend side-by-side. As great as all that is, the vast majority of people will likely want to play with a friend in the comfort of their own homes, which might mean a PC player and a PS5 player will want to team up. Is that possible in Baldur's Gate 3? Here's a quick rundown of this game's cross-platform support.
Is Baldur's Gate 3 cross-platform?

In short, no, Baldur's Gate 3 will not allow for cross-platform play. If you are playing on PC, then anyone you want to play online with will also need to be on PC, and the same is true for PS5. While this is true for now, it is possible that Larian Studios may add cross-platform play in a future update, but for now, it is safer to assume it won't come and make your purchasing decision accordingly.

Mortal Kombat 1 Fatalities: how to do every character’s Fatality
Shang Tsung stealing someone's soul in Mortal Kombat 1.

What set the Mortal Kombat franchise apart when it first hit arcades was just how brutally violent the games were. It looks tame now, but the Fatalities of the original game were some of the most shocking things anyone had seen in a game up to that point, pixelated graphics and all. With Mortal Kombat 1, NetherRealm continues to churn our stomachs with some of the most disgustingly detailed ways to dismantle your opponent. Everyone loves seeing these creative ways your favorite fighter can definitively end a fight, but if you want to show off to your friends and humiliate your enemy, you have to know the specific button input to pull it off for each character. There are more that you can unlock, but here is how to perform every character's basic Fatality in Mortal Kombat 1.
How to perform all basic Fatalities
Here are all the default inputs for every character's Fatality on PlayStation and Xbox controls in alphabetical order, as well as what range you need to be at to trigger the Fatality. Once you have reduced your opponent's health to 0 and they are susceptible to a Fatality, which you will know from the announcer calling out "Finish him" or "Finish her," you will have five seconds to input the correct sequence.
