Toroids are rare resources that were introduced when Fortuna came to Warframe and are used in crafting many of the equipment that came during its release. These devices are valued in Fortuna and may be traded for Vox Salaris standing depending on which Toroid you trade in.
Each Toroid has its own value and may be a requirement of a different kind of equipment or item. Not all Toroids are found in one location nor are they obtainable almost anywhere. While Toroids are a requirement for several blueprints, these are often traded for Vox Solaris standing to easily rank up or to acquire points for buying from the NPCs in Fortuna.
There are specific locations or ways for you to obtain each Toroid. To better help you with Toroid farming, we have prepared this guide to help you.
How To Farm Toroids?
Not all Toroids are farmed the same as the others and you will need to either kill enemies in a certain location, interact with objects in caves or destroy bosses that may be fought in Orb Vallis. Toroids will come in very small amounts and may be harder to find than most resources but going to the proper locations will guarantee you will acquire them.
Where To Farm Toroids?
Toroids may be farmed in Orb Vallis but each Toroid has its own location. While the Vega, Calda and Sola Toroids may be farmed in specific locations by killing enemies, the Crisma and Lazulite Toroids are only obtainable from defeating bosses.
Crisma Toroids will be dropped by the Profit-Taker Orb when it is destroyed while Lazulite Toroids are obtainable from destroying the Exploiter Orb.
Farming Locations and Methods
You can farm Vega Toroids by heading to the Spaceport in Orb Vallis and killing enemies inside and nearby the area. It is also possible for you to obtain Vega Toroids when you kill Mite Raknoids which can be found around Orb Vallis as well as inside its caves.
The Spaceport can be located at the lower part of the map of Orb Vallis.
For Calda Toroid farming, you will want to head to the Enrichment Labs in Orb Vallis and kill enemies in the area. Enemies killed in the Enrichment Labs as well as nearby will have a chance to drop Calda Toroids. Scyto Raknoids may spawn when level 4 is reached when reinforcement beacons have been set up by Corpus enemies in Orb Vallis.
The Enrichment Labs may be found on the left part of the map, west of Fortuna.
For Sola Toroid farming, you will need to make your way to the Temple Of Profit and kill enemies either inside the structure or outside of it. Enemies nearby or within the Temple Of Profit have a chance to drop Sola Toroids when killed.
In the event that you reach level 4 alert when a reinforcement beacon is active, a Kyta Raknoid will spawn and may drop Sola Toroids when destroyed.
The Temple Of Profit can be found at the upper left part of Orb Vallis, north of Fortuna.
The Crisma Toroid is much rarer than the other Toroids and can be obtained by defeating the Profit-Taker Orb. The Profit-Taker Orb may be fought when you choose to do heist (Phase 4) which takes place in Orb Vallis. There is a 100% chance that the Profit-Taker will drop a Crisma Toroid.
It is ideal to fight the Profit-Taker with a squad, unless you are fully equipped to handle the Profit-Taker on your own.
The Lazulite Toroid is the most valuable amongst the others and may only be obtained by defeating the Exploiter Orb. It is guaranteed that after defeating the Exploiter Orb, a Lazulite Toroid will be dropped along with other rewards.
The Exploiter Orb is considered to be the strongest enemy and boss in Orb Vallis and will be difficult for most players to defeat, making this Toroid the most precious of all 5 of them.
Toroids may take more time to farm than others due to the rarity at which they drop but to increase the chances of getting them, you can always use a farming Warframe. Farming Toroids such as Crisma Toroid and Lazulite Toroid are different and you will have to grind the bosses for whoever one you want as this is the only way to farm them.
When farming for the other Toroids such as Vega, Calda and Sola, it would be a good idea to bring a squad with you to increase the number of enemies that spawn. This will increase the chance of you getting Toroids when you drop.
A resource booster will double the amount of Toroids you receive when you go out Toroid Farming, while a Smeeta Kavat will improve the chance for even more.
