Complete Guide To The Sarofang – The Voruna Warframe and two new weapons, both of which are signature weapons for everyone’s favourite werewolf-themed character, were introduced with the Lua’s Prey update for Warframe. The Sarofang, a massive sword that can spin a vortex that pulls in elevated enemies, is the emblematic melee weapon of the Voruna.
Heavy blade enthusiasts might think about trying the Sarofang because of its special mechanic, which is a more reliable variation of the Zaw’s Exodia Hunt Arcane. This large blade can become an incredible powerhouse with excellent crowd control and significant damage when wielded by Voruna. This article will show you where to buy the Sarofang and some of the finest builds for it.

Components for the Sarofang are dropped by Conjunction Survival nodes on Lua. Every reward period, there is a minor possibility that a part will drop; the Circulus node has somewhat higher drop rates. In Conjunction Survival, the Lua Thrax Plasm needed to build the Sarofang drops every five minutes.
Additionally, Archimedean Yonta on the Zariman offers Sarofang components for sale. This method will cost you 200 Lua Thrax Plasm for all three Sarofang parts (blueprint, blade, and handle). Our Conjunction Survival guide has exact drop rates and price ranges.

In comparison to its rivals, the Sarofang is a heavy blade with quick attack speed, average basic damage, and average critical and status chance. For raw damage, the Sarofang won’t be able to compete with a Gram Prime or Paracesis, but it does have one advantage: slam attacks.
Slam assaults will draw lifted opponents from up to 12 metres away if the Combo Multiplier is at least x8 (x5 for Voruna). Using a hefty slam attack with the Sarofang, you can quickly cause the lifted status by raising foes in a circle of about eight metres before gathering them into a ball. To quickly dispatch the huddled targets, follow up with a melee strike that deals a lot of damage or a Warframe ability.
In addition to heavy slam assaults, you can also use specific melee combos, neutral heavy attacks, or Naramon’s Void Levitation ability on your Operator to give them the lifted condition. However, these effects can be a bit awkward to apply, so whenever you need to clump up enemies, we advise sticking with powerful slam assaults.

Today, we’ll present two Sarofang builds that either call for little or a lot of Forma. You should employ the Sarofang in conjunction with Voruna to serve as a sort of CC stat stick, pulling targets together when you are about to cast an ability because the Sarofang’s average critical and status chances greatly hinder the weapon’s total DPS when paired against other heavy blades.
We advise Tempo Royale or Rending Crane for postures. Rending Crane provides a fantastic balance of mobility and damage, and it fits the Sarofang’s default Stance polarity. Most aspects of Tempo Royale are comparable, thus your choice is totally based on personal preference. If damage over mobility is more important to you than movement, you can also use Cleaving Whirlwind.
Sarofang Riven Mods
The stat values of your Rivens are severely constrained by the Sarofang’s 1/5 Riven Disposition. Rivens should not be applied to the Sarofang until its disposition has improved. Watch out for critical damage, critical chance, and attack speed if you’re fortunate enough to obtain a Sarophang Riven.
Starter Build (0 Forma)
Without the use of Forma, this configuration scales the critical and status effects of the Sarofang. We advise sticking with this build for the majority of players because the endgame build demands much more Forma than we believe the Sarofang should have. You’ll need some sort of heavy attack efficiency if you wish to counter your heavy slams with neutral heavy attacks. Reflex Coil can be used in place of Drifting Contact to enhance the duration of your combos while the Naramon Focus School is equipped. Alternately, use Voruna’s third passive by playing her.
The base damage of our weapon is scaled by Primed Pressure Point, and we use Quickening to speed up our attacks while accumulating a little amount of combo damage with each strike. If you are not converting this weapon into endurance content, Quickening can be swapped out for Berseker Fury. If you’re utilising a status primer like Voruna’s second ability, the Zekti gun, etc., Condition Overload can be used in place of Pressure Point.
Next, you should use Sacrificial Steel and Organ Shatter to increase the Sarofang’s critical stats by raising the weapon’s critical chance and multiplier, respectively. Blood Rush is a respectable substitute for Sacrificial Steel, but it takes some time to start operating.
You can wear either Corrosive or Viral as components. Virulent Scourge and Vicious Frost, both of which raise our status probability every swing, will be combined to create Viral, which we will use. You should have a reliable melee weapon for all Star Chart stuff if you complete the build with a combo duration mod like Drifting Contact. To clear out crowded rooms of adversaries, keep in mind that you can gather up enemies with a hefty slam attack at x8 Combo Multiplier.
Endgame Melee For Voruna (6 Forma)
Forma: 5-6 (optional D in Stance, 3V, D, -)
The Sarofang’s performance for the mentioned investment is below average, in our opinion. Use this build only if you adore the Sarofang’s gimmick and would prefer it to a Zaw with Exodia Hunt that is built.
This build is predicated on you wielding the Sarofang while utilising the Voruna Warframe. If not, utilise the Zekti status primer for the best DPS.
To increase the Sarofang’s ability to deal damage, we will tune it around Voruna’s ability kit. Fangs of Raksh, Voruna’s second ability, will be used to prime targets with status conditions. By doing so, Condition Overload will be activated, dramatically increasing our weapon’s base damage. Primed Fury’s increased strike speed should make your melee combos feel fairly responsive. If Primed Fury is unavailable, Berserker’s Fury or Quickening will suffice.
On the Sarofang, critical stats require some assistance, so we’ll use Sacrificial Steel in conjunction with Blood Rush to significantly increase our critical chance into orange crit region, increasing our damage with Organ Shatter. Build with Primed Fever Strike and Vicious Frost to deal Viral damage, and equip Healing Return to become virtually unkillable while attacking targets suffering from various status ailments.
You can substitute something else for Healing Return if you already have a healing mechanism. Weeping Wounds is advised, using North Wind in place of Vicious Frost to allow oneself enough mod space. If you aren’t utilising the Naramon Focus School, Drifting Contact or Body Count will also function.
