Mesa Prime, Queen Gunslinger
Update (4/2/19): Mesa Prime Access has ended. We have a new guide on farming relics for Equinox Prime (the new Prime Access). This page may become obsolete and will not be updated. We recommend using the Wiki to identify the locations of existing Relics that provide Mesa Prime parts. You can still use the tables below to get an idea of what the fastest methods are for obtaining relics.
Mesa Prime Access is finally here! Mesa is one of the best Warframes in the game, easily earning the title of “S-Tier.” She can deal heavy damage, buff her squad, protect herself and crowd control enemies. What else could you ask for? If you’re looking to hunt down this legendary Warframe along with the Akjagara Prime and Redeemer Prime, look no further. We have provided tables below that show which relics you need and the best places to farm them.

Our Favorite Farming Spots
Tier 1 (Hepit) and Tier 3 (Ukko) Void Capture missions are by far the best methods of farming Lith, Meso and Neo relics. You can complete them in under 2 minutes consistently and farm over 30 relics an hour with a good chance of getting several Mesa Prime relics. You can also consider Exterminate if you have a solid build for Equinox / Saryn that can run through the map quickly, but it is less consistent than Capture.
For Axi relics, we recommend doing Hieracon on Pluto since it’s faster than other methods and has decent rewards including Endo and Neo relics. This is a popular node on the Star Chart so you can easily join a squad and grind as long as you please. We suggest bringing a Stasis Limbo with max duration and slightly positive range. Max duration lets your Cataclysm last long enough to protect Excavator the whole time it’s powered. The slight amount of range is necessary as Mutalist Osprey power carriers are capable of damaging the Excavator through Cataclysm if they get close enough.
If you are in no rush to farm Relics, you can obtain Meso and Neo relics through Helene and Hydron respectively. These are popular areas to level gear so if you are looking to increase your Mastery or Forma some gear, consider these Defense missions so you can also get relics at the same time. We hope this quick guide and tables helped you with farming Mesa Prime. Once you have her, make sure to check out our Mesa Prime build guide so you can get the most out of your new Warframe. Good luck with those relics!
