Oberon is extremely nice. It has decent stats overall, although I would personally prefer more armor (especially since it's advertised as the Paladin Warframe, but whatever). Overall I think it shines in its abilities, which are all useful. I tend to find myself only using one or two abilities with most Warframes, but for Oberon I use them all.

The first ability is a target skill that causes the enemy you are targetting to take large amounts of damage, and then spawning from them is a number of projectiles that default aim at enemies around the target (but don't home in). I think when maxed it's 6 or 8 projectiles. They all do decent damage. With my current build (which isn't that great, I need better mods), the initial hit does 600 while each projectile does 100+. The projectiles will bounce off of walls if they miss (or have no intial target, in which case they are aimed in a random direction), and can travel for quite some time.

The second ability creates a carpet of DOT on the ground in the direction you are facing. It does about 150ish/second for me, and lasts I believe 20 seconds. This ability is beyond amazing for all defense type missions. You just leave one or two around the defense target and any enemies you fail to catch yourself die from the DOT from the ability. Invasion missions make this especially amazing, as they HAVE to get close to the target to attack it, so they get obliterated without you even trying, and typically are enough of a swarm to give you all your Energy back and then some.

The third ability is a healing ability, which heals you and then your nearby allies. It heals over time and gives about 200 health at max level, about 20/second.

The fourth ability is a massive AOE that targets everything around you (I think the wiki says 20 meters, but I have no idea how to quantify that in-game) and does around 1250 damage to all of them at once. It's an amazing ability for when you are swarmed by enemies.

Overall Oberon was definitely built to take out Infested, as they're all melee and most of the abilities work even better at close range, but it's really great for just about everything.

also, oberon`s 4th ability causes enemies killed with it to spawn health orbs

those 3 go for very different play styles. If you are looking to round out a squad, Mag Prime and Oberon can work better since it seems everyone has a Rhino, and many have great Rhinos.

Anyway, it boils down to how you like to play. Do you enjoy avoiding damages(hit & run)? Want to take a beating live to talk about it? or just support the squad your squad?

It comes down to personall peference. Thus far, I'm not enjoying Oberon. Specially compared to trinity(I'm currently leveling both up) for example.

Oberon and Trinity are almost opposite playstyles from my experience, oberon's a frontline fighter with offence and support skills while trinity's a backline frame more focused on keeping the team alive while trying to avoid too much damage. I do aggree with Vitalidad in that it really depends on your personal prefrence in how you like to approach combat.

Great! thank you very much to all of you :D... i think im gonna choose oberon :)
Dillon_J Dec 31, 2013 @ 8:56am 
it is really based on your playstyle that is it.

I have all of those and I say Rhino without any fear of being unfair.

Well, Rhinos iron skin alone weighs up for all of those other warframes, simply because it lets you do so much more, than what you normally would be doing without it, im not saying that everyone go play rhino at once, but rhino is kinda the one warframe that you always want with your squad, Or if you on your spare time wanna do solo void missions or level other items at a fast pace without worrying about toxic ancients and other hazards, when you get overrun, the stomp will save your day.
i guess its true that the rhino is one of, if not the most popular warframe, that for a very good reason, and its fairly easy to get.
I want the next prime frame to be rhino prime.
