Last Updated on October 16, 2022

With the release of Update 30.5: Sisters of Parvos dawning upon us, the popular multiplayer third-person shooter game made by Digital Extremes unveils the latest Warframe character, Yareli.

As the latest Warframe major update rolls out, millions of players will get to enjoy this new fighter as they set their sights on putting a stop to the Corpus regime. You can do all this and more with the other new cool toys to play in this latest Warframe update.

Let’s learn all you need to know about Warframe’s newest hero, Yareli.

All You Need to Know About Yareli

Meet Yareli, a comic hero who strikes fear towards her enemies and the oppressive Corpus regime. She uses water-based abilities like blades of ice and powerful geysers to wreak havoc, reigning terror in the battlefield with grace and elegance.

This formidable fighter knows much acclaim as a legendary hailed from Fortuna. She possesses an oceanic fury, her own surfboard, and intense hatred towards the hostile Corpus clan and their leader, Parvos Granum.

Yareli also has the power to summon a creature named Merculina—a rideable force that can maneuver with agility and precision across the battlefield. 

As Yareli defeats and disposes of her adversaries, she harnesses the destructive and dangerous force of the sea through aquatic crowd control as her method of dealing with her enemies.

Aside from her water-bending abilities, her personality is nothing short of unique either. Her in-game character and Idle Animations denote a cute, peppy demeanor, similar to pop idols. She performs victory hand signs, points finger guns, hugs Merculina, and giggles often.

How To Unlock Yareli in Warframe?

You can unlock Yareli once you complete the upcoming Waveriver quest. You can initiate this quest by opening an Inbox message sent by Roky as soon as you’ve completed the Vox Solaris quest. Once you’ve viewed the exact details of the mission, you’ll receive Yareli’s blueprint straight away! 

To find the necessary component blueprints to bring her to life, you’d have to research for this Warframe inside the Bash Lab within the Clan Dojo.

Warframe Yareli Abilities

Yareli has unique abilities that she can utilize on the battlefield, both PVP and PVE, to her advantage. These include:

Sea Snares

Form globules of water that seek out enemies and expand on contact, simultaneously damaging and immobilizing their victims.


Call upon your trust and rideable buddy of the seas, Merulina. This creature acts as Yareli’s shield by resisting and absorbing heavy-hitting incoming damage.

Fun fact: Merulina, the friendly accomplice, is also the inspiration for K-Driving.


Ravage enemies and tear them apart with three, razor-sharp orbiting aquatic blades.


Suck enemies towards a crushing vortex, rendering them immobile, and then blow them away in an aquatic burst. The longer an enemy stays trapped in the vortex, the higher the burst’s damage will be.

Yareli’s Passive

If Yareli has been moving for at least 1.5 seconds, she gains an increased critical chance for her Secondary Weapons by 100%.

Is Yareli A Good Warframe Character?

With the Sister of Parvos update, Yareli shows great promise as one of the game’s brand new characters. Here are some of Yareli’s starting stats for you to get an idea of her prowess on the battlefield:

  • Health: 100
  • Shield: 150
  • Armor: 65
  • Energy: 200

Her Armor set at 65 makes her the least armor-resistant character in the game. However, there are future patches that could change or improve these stats.
