Help me decide which warframe to choose
Stealth, snipers, and these magnetic thingys aren't my thing. I prefer being more heavily armored, doing some heavy damage.

This is why I am stuck choosing between Frost and Rhino, maybe also Ember

All these three warframes have my kind of things.

But I just can't decide which one of them to choose.

Can someone please clarify things to me about these options, from own experience or just knowledge.

Brickbats and Bouquets

Thanks.

EDIT:

After some more checking on thr warframes, I came to conclusion that there are four interesting warframes:

Frost, Rhino, Ember and Volt.

All warframes can deal heavy damage, since powers are constrained by energy consumption, most damage is dealt by weapons - and your choice of weapon and how you mod them determines their damage output. That said, Frost has a better AOE damage ability than the rest you mention.

If you want to be able to tank hits, Rhino is the best, followed closely by Frost. Ember is fairly fragile, with low armor, but it's a ton of fun setting things on fire. I have no personal experience with Volt, though.

Volt is very fragile, he has only 10 armor, but deals heavy amount of damage Saryn would be also followed after Frost, cause she has more armor than the "normal" warframes but not as much as Frost or Rhino. So, if you want to be a heavy awesome tanky-bull i would recommend rhino, cause he also has Ironskin, makes him invulnerable to all attacks and stuns. He also deals a huge amount of damage with his other 3 Abilitys. Frost has some cool things too, but he is a bit weaker (i think) than Rhino. So feel free, take one, farm for the next one and you will see, which one will really fit for your gameplay-style ;)

You're going to want Rhino or Frost. If you're going to craft, Rhino will be available to you sooner than Frost. Since you like tanky, you'll also want to get the Wyrm sentinal as soon as you can. It mostly just dies until you get a few levels to mod it and its weapon, but eventually will be able to boost your shields, provide crowd control and other goodies.

Both frames have good tanking abilities, with Rhino being the more traditional "take it like a man" type.

With all that in mind, I found everything I needed to make Ash while getting my Excalibur and Volt to 30. You don't have to lock yourself into a single frame. You will want additional frames to level up so that your mastery rank increases. If your frame is already 30, it's not giving you any XP toward mastery.

Let us know what you pick.

Have fun!

Ember can clear rooms fast. Rhino and Wyrm is also a nice combo

From all the opinions I've read or heard I came to the conclusion that I'm gonna try Rhino. Right when I get to lvl 2.

Rhino is the best tank, hands down. I only use his Ironskin ability whenever my shields go down and I almost never leave the fight. (Tip, if you go for the Rhino, upgrade the ironskin to level 3 as soon as you can, it triples the duration. 5,10,15 seconds)
