Warframe solo or ghost clan layout and forma cost

Building a small clan dojo in Warframe is achievable for solo players or a small group of players. The highest investment will be over 10 forma. I have two similar layouts you can reuse to have a trading post and all research up and running. Both layouts require you to build a lower floor containing 2 reactor rooms first. Only after you have constructed both reactors you have enough energy for the the rest of the rooms.

Both layout layouts will allow you to build all research labs. The differ in how easy you can extend your dojo.

This layout can be  easily extended and will need 13 forma (12 for rooms, 1 for the trading post):

This layout is limited to trading and research and will need only 12 forma (11 for rooms, 1 for the trading post):

If you want to know how to build what in you clan dojo I have done a small youtube series explaining the details.

20 years of coding and working as software engineer but I am still eager to learn more. I am very passionate when it comes to open source, Linux and Java. But I made my peace with Windows long ago to fully enjoy my PC gaming hobby. I have a soft spot for 90s electronic music and Babylon 5. In the evenings you will find me roaming the endless space in Warframe (IGN k05h).

    This guide is simple and effective i am just starting my first clan building and wanted to make a clan that is noob friendly. Have been playing on and off but this time round wanted a small ghost clan to focus on and help a core group.

    I am going to take it a day at a time hopefully things will be much better eventually

    In the future alliance with other ghost clans would be something i am going to look into!

    thanks again

    I’m very new to Warframe (2 weeks!) But loving it.

    Question I have on this – is there any other reason you need a dojo outside of research?

    Or does this setup contain the needs for advancement?

    Working on collecting more frames and see alot are from the dojo, so googled when I get one, and then found this post 🙂

      Research is the most important part. There are lots of things that can only be obtained through clan research: many weapons, energy/health/ammo pizzas, warframes, archwing and dragon keys (needed for derelict). Other than that trading is done in the clan dojo. And of course having clan members to ask questions or to get rare mods from is also very helpful.

      Best go into the recruitment chat and ask for a noob friendly clan. Don’t feel bad for just getting research.
