Sevagoth, previously known as Wraith, will be making his way to Warframe in Update 30. This new Warframe will have a quest you can complete to get the blueprints you will need and a whole host of new abilities to engage with.

In this article, we will run through what we currently know about his abilities, and you can be sure we will update it as more information comes to light closer to release.

Passive

Sevagoth’s passive is a literal lifesaver. When fatally injured, Sevagoth takes on his Shadowform, giving you a chance to collect the souls of dead enemies to revive yourself. A tombstone is left behind that players can also use to revive you.

Abilities

Sevagoth is very interesting, having two sets of abilities. The first four work as normal, but when you use his ultimate ability you will gain access to three more that he can use in his Shadowform.

Reap

Sevagoth fires his Shadowform at enemies. Any enemy it passes through takes damage and is infected with shadowy tendrils that increase any follow-up damage. You can control the path of the Shadowform while it is in flight by moving your aiming reticle.

Sow

Sevagoth surrounds himself with a shadow wave, infecting nearby enemies and dealing damage over time. Reaping these enemies will cause area-of-effect damage.

Gloom

Sevagoth summons a circle of darkness around himself. This is maintained from his energy, costing a set amount each second. Enemies are slowed, and allies will benefit from lifestyle by dealing damage.

Sevagoth’s Shadow

Sevagoth can separate his soul from his physical form by collecting soul fragments from dead enemies and using his abilities. When enough soul fragments have been gathered, you can leave your body and become a Shadowform. You cannot use weapons and instead attack with large claws.

You also cannot use your other abilities, and must use your Shadowform abilities instead:

  • Shadowform can pull enemies into melee range, similar to Mag.
  • You can dash through enemies, damaging them and life-stealing health for yourself. Affected enemies act as distractions for their allies and will draw enemy fire.
  • The third ability is a loud scream, called Wail. This will infect enemies with shadow tendrils, causing them to take increased damage.
