Why you would use a Raksa

The Raksa is a great companion (best-friend to Hildryn), as it gives constant shield buffs (protect) and a good amount of CC (howl). Personally I find it very useful in Elite Sanctuary Onslaught (ESO) and Arbitrations due to that added CC occasionally stopping me from being overwhelmed.

Damage

Maul gives the kubrow extra damage.

Status

The dps mods; frost jaw, shock collar, flame gland and venom teeth, in whatever combination of elemental damage you want.

Mecha Overdrive and Mecha Recharge work in conjunction with your warframe’s Mecha Empowered and Mecha Pulse. Using all four will grant you many more times that the Kubrow proc’s the ability, but the full set is not required. What the set does is make it so randomly sometimes when you are killing targets, killing one will cause a spread affect to nuke the enemies around it (as can be seen in the video).

To quote the wiki, when pairing a weapon with the set:

The bonus is calculated from a weapon’s total modded status chance before multishot. This makes high-status shotguns a particularly good choice, as they should be built to reach 100% status chance before multishot, conferring the full 60% bonus.

Alongside this, when your kubrow gets a higher status chance, the dps mods (frost jaw, shock collar, flame gland and venom teeth) can give the kubrow a strong amount of elemental damage.

Survivability

Link Health gives the kubrow extra Health. Remember if you are on something like Hildryn then Link Shields may possibly work more to your favour. This mod works with “base” warframe modded health, not how much health you have each moment in combat.

Protect allows you to keep up shield regeneration.

Protect recovers shields similarly to Sentinel mod. Unlike its Sentinel counterpart, this ability activates consistently, as long as the shield capacity of the Kubrow’s master is not full.

Shield amount restored is not fixed, but rather in range of 150- approx. 290 . If shields are depleted during cast, 150 is always replenished.

Cooldown is inconsistent, more often than not, Kubrow can cast Protect twice over a second before entering a 5 sec cooldown. If used extensively (after approx. 15 cooldowns in immediate succession), Protect enters a downtime of about 10 seconds before Kubrow can cast it again. The “double cast” gives only a total of 300 if shields were depleted before first cast.

Utility

Fetch lets the kubrow loot for you.

Howl allows the dog to fear up to 15 surrounding enemies, making them walk disorientated and be unable to attack for 16 seconds.

Primed Animal Instinct (or Animal Instinct) allows the kubrow to show you enemies and loot on the map.

Other Mods

If you are looking to change up the build, Primed Animal Instinct is the default which can be exchanged out (as they only affect you rather than the kubrow).

Link Armor is also useful if you are bringing a frame with a high modded armor, or Link Shields instead of Link Health with something like Hildryn.

Primed Pack Leader (or Pack Leader) allows your melee hits to heal the Raksa Kubrow (can be exchanged out for normal pack leader).

Make sure you set up the abilities that proc’ such as Howl and Protect in the first slots on the left, because it will then proc’ them most often. Place either one in the order you wish the kubrow to default to casting first.

This build can also be found listed on Overframe.
