  • This mod can be acquired by attaining the rank of General under Steel Meridian, or the rank of Maxim under the Arbiters of Hexis, and spending ReputationLargeBlack25,000 to purchase.


  • Chromatic Blade works the same way ChromaIcon272 Chroma's passive does.
    • White, grey, black, and some faded colors being Cold b Cold.
    • Blue and purple hues being Electricity b Electric.
    • Red, magenta, brown, orange and bright yellow hues being Heat b Heat.
    • Green, lime, teal and dark yellow hues being Toxin b Toxin.
    • Note that players do not need to purchase color palettes to unlock the full potential of this trait.
    • While customizing Excalibur's energy color, Chromatic Blade's active element is displayed in the form of an icon (Heat b, Electricity b, Toxin b, Cold b). This imgur album can serve as a reference for future color palette purchases.
    • Customizing the secondary emission and the energy colors will have no effect.
  • The elemental damage granted by Chromatic Blade will combine with any elemental damage present on EWExaltedBlade Exalted Blade.
  • The status chance increase granted by this augment is additive and is affected by Ability Strength.
  • Physical damage mods will no longer affect Exalted Blade's damage with Chromatic Blade equipped.


  • Although Chromatic Blade removes all Physical Damage, it is still possible to inflict Impact b Impact procs through the Cutting Poise combo of Exalted Blade's stance.
  • Due to the large status chance boost this augment gives, it pairs well with Mod TT 20pxCondition Overload. Furthermore, players can forgo dual status-elemental mods, such as Mod TT 20pxVolcanic Edge, and use mods that only increase Elemental Damage, like Mod TT 20pxMolten Impact, to further increase Exalted Blade's total damage.
  • The status chance boost also simplifies creating a Crit-Status hybrid build as status chance mods are no longer necessary.


  • Chromatic Blade is the only one of Excalibur's augments to not feature him with his Immortal Skin and Pendragon Helmet equipped on the mod card.
  • Just like with Chroma, the name of the augment comes from the Greek word Chroma, meaning colour.
