How to farm for Diluted Thermia

Like many items in Warframe, you’re going to need to know the best ways to get it if you plan on running any of the events that it is tied to. Diluted Thermia itself is tied directly to the Exploiter Orb boss fight in Deck 12. This is a boss that’s useful to farm thanks to its ability to drop the Hildryn Chassis Blueprint, Hildryn Neuroptics Blueprint, and the Hildryn Systems Blueprint.

To farm for Diluted Thermia you’re going to need to take part in Thermia Fractures. These events were first introduced during the Buried Debts event, though they do occur outside of this particular event. These particular events recur every few weeks, and often appear at Orb Vallis, Venus.

The Exploiter Orb boss can be activated using Diluted Thermia.

In order to properly farm for Diluted Thermia, you’re going to need to close out Thermia Fractures, which can be found all along the surface of the level. To earn Diluted Thermia specifically, though, you’ll need to close out 4 Thermia Fractures using the same coolant canister or use 4 coolant canisters at one time to close out a single Thermia Fracture. The item itself will be earned anytime the player or anyone in their squad meets the requirements.

Because of the requirements, it’s easiest to farm for Diluted Thermia by joining up with a squad and knocking out Thermia Fractures when they are available. This should make the process much easier to pull off, and also much more enjoyable as grinding is always better when you have friends to keep you company.

      This guide forgets to mention that you need to get a coolant canister from the Coolant Raknoids who are all around the Exploiter Orb (usually on the northern portion of the Orb Vallis map).

      Kill the Coolant Raknoids to pick up a coolant canister.

      Then take the coolant canister to the thermia fractures, place the coolant canister down, fight off the waves of enemies that appear until the coolant canister is +1/4 full.

      Do it 4 times to fill up the whole canister.
