Itzal is absolutely worth the investment.
If you need Oxium, Io on Jupiter is decent spot to farm it, especially if you bring an AoE frame like Banshee, or Volt.

One also gets decent amounts of Oxium from routinely opening lockers. And of course from routinely prioritising Oxium Ospreys as targets.

Also, re: Europa. It might be obvious, but Hek is -20% vs shields, being Puncture. Now Hek does a lot of damage, but between that and, *perhaps*, engaging from a little too far, it might explain the issue. By contrast an Impact-heavy weapon like the Sobek is +50% vs. shields, so the difference in effectiveness is quite clear.

Argh, I totally missed that the Exploiter Orb went live today. Well, at least by waiting a day we'll actually have learned how to beat it first.
It's actually a great fight (if a tiny bit glitchy, sounds like, tho my 2 runs had no real issues).

You get a CRAPLOAD of rewards for Fortuna rep and crafting too.

I'm almost done with Uranus - I've done the missions with only melee and I just have to do one kill of Tyl Regor and I can move on :)

Last night was Top Chef and Discovery night, so playtime was limited. I just did the sortie and finished up the Lua challenges for Nightwave. Crossfire Exterminate seems to be the way to go.

I’ll keep that in mind when I get access to clan labs. Looks like I do have about 1200 accumulated (but I know that there’s also a bunch of stuff that needs it).

I’m embarrassed to say that it never occurred to me. Damage types are something I don’t really feel like I have a super strong handle on. I’ll definitely try some other stuff.

Ugh, one of the Lua Spy puzzles is awful. The jump-latching one.

As per chat advice, I guess I'll get Ivara before I farm Lua Spy. Plus, Spy missions seem to be the best way to level the Mote Amp, so I can take down the Stalker when I'm on a low-level warframe and/or levelling weapons and/or on too vulnerable a warframe.

The wiki has a handy table for the damage types and their effectiveness against the various factions:

https://warframe.fandom.com/wiki/Damage#All
One subtlety being that for your faction-specific elemental suites (if any), you usually want to be loaded for heavy units. Those are the ones who are more likely kill you, and they often have different kinds of protections and health than the lighter units.

And with level 25+ Grineer heavy units, armour-stripping via corrosive procs starts being worthwhile.
