Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Helping Others Makes Me Stronger


One of the things I enjoy doing is helping friends get stronger.  I recently had this friend who signed up for Warframe. If you haven’t heard of the game, it’s a free to play sci-fi third person shooter.  The game is just a blast to play, and the one thing that makes it stand out above the rest is the fact that it’s not clunky.  All the movements are smooth, none of it is choppy.

When I started out, there were a group of people who were there to help me. They offered me advice and tips, and now I’m giving back by helping others. But there were many times when I had to learn the game the hard way. Most of those times were very very frustrating.  I remember this one time when I…well no, I don’t feel like sharing that story. Suffice it to say, I died so many times. Horribly. I want to prevent these things from happening to other players!


Everytime you start a game, you’re given the worst gear.  The weakest armor, the most basic gun.  My friend wasn’t too bothered by this. He expected there to be grind, and he was having fun. He started on Earth, then he went to mercury, no problems.  That’s until he started encountering enemies with stronger armor, and he found that he would empty entire magazines and still not kill the enemy. So I gave him this.

He kept progressing through to the higher planets, and as he progressed, I sent him more upgrades. Upgrades are obtained while killing enemies. Gold and silver upgrades are rare drops.

He didnt know this at the time, but the upgrades I sent him are basically upgrades that the warframe community consider to be essential upgrades.  Being essential upgrades, hardly anyone ever talks about them, so being a newcomer it’s much more difficult to get a read on what one should or should not do because essential upgrades aren’t swag and trendy.  I sent him this and this.

This stuff is meant to be played by a group of 4 players, but he’s soloing this content now because I upgraded his character with those essential mods, which enabled him to find his own upgrades, which in turned made him stronger while he polished and refined his skills.  So now, I’m teaming up with him, and we absolutely obliterate level 80 to 100 enemies easily.

When you help a friend, there’s not necessarily a reason why you should do it. The benefits arrive passively. It’s also the satisfaction and happiness you get for helping others.  It also makes you look good.

If you have a good friend that’s in need of help, don’t hesitate to offer a helping hand. Who knows, it might just make you stronger!

    Good post, I always see Warframe when I go into the PS Store, but I’ve never taken the time to try it out. This post does encourage me to play it sooner rather than later though. Support characters are the real MVPs in these kinds of games!

      Oh yeah. It’s a lot of fun. I just like it because it plays so smooth. It’s not a very deep game to master, but the developers have been adding more and more layers lately. Great post on your blog btw.

      • Paul-NL

        Yeah, I like that actually. Some games can be really intimidating to get into (like LoL), so something that isn’t difficult to master sounds like it’s right up my alley. And thanks, I hope I get to see some of those sequels soon. :P

        Also, do you share your posts on any other websites? I work over at Creators .Co (we’re part of Movie Pilot and Now Loading) and this is the sort of content that makes for an interesting read. If you were open to the idea of posting your work on our Creators site in addition to also having your blog/site here, I’d be more than happy to help you get started. My e-mail and more info can be found on my page. (o^.^)b

        Ooh, that’s interesting! Can I be an anonymous contributor there or is a real name needed? I can’t find any info on it.
