The Dry Dock is highly useful and requires a lot of space while comparing it with other rooms. This allows you to build and station Railjack Battleships in Warframe.

These battleships can do a host of things such as boarding hostile ships and of course space battles besides a lot of teamwork. This post is all about how to build a Dry Dock in Warframe.

Building a Dry Dock

If you are interested in building your own dry dock you can download the Rising Tide Update and then log in. Whilst in the game you will get a message from Ordis and the message is that he has discovered a Dry Dock Schema that is of some interest to you and your fellows.

If you are interested then it will go off to the Clan Dojo to start building it. As already stated, you’ll require a lot of room for building it.

You can try building it towards the end of a long corridor. You also will require the following resources to build your own Dry Dock.

  • 100,000 Credits
  • 25,000 salvage
  • 850 Circuits
  • 15 Tellurium
  • 1 Forma

Also, you can take a note that multipliers would be applied as per the size of your Clan. The Dry Dock has a build time of 12 hours. However, if you wish to complete it faster, then you need to spend some Platinum.

That way you can get the job done instantly. If you head towards the far side of the Dry Dock you will see two consoles on a platform. Out of the two, one of them will allow you to research Railjack Cephalon.

Of course, you will require resources to research and for this item and you will require the following:

  • 4000 Credits
  • 5 Mutagen Mass
  • 5 Detonite Injectors
  • 5 Fieldron Samples
  • 2 Orokin Cells

Railjack Cephalon takes around 1 hour to complete being researched. And you can’t really speed it up by any means. After the build is complete you can replicate the Blueprint.
