Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Chromatic Blade works the same way ChromaChromaIcon272.png Chroma's passive does.
    • White, grey, black, and some faded colors being Damage/Cold DamageDmgColdSmall64.png Cold.
    • Blue and purple hues being Damage/Electricity DamageDmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity.
    • Red, magenta, brown, orange and bright yellow hues being Damage/Heat DamageDmgHeatSmall64.png Heat.
    • Green, lime, teal and dark yellow hues being Damage/Toxin DamageDmgToxinSmall64.png 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 (DmgHeatSmall64.png, DmgElectricitySmall64.png, DmgToxinSmall64.png, DmgColdSmall64.png). 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 Exalted Blade (Weapon)EWExaltedBlade.png Exalted Blade.
  • The status chance increase granted by this augment is multiplicative and is affected by Ability Strength.
    • For example, using a maxed IntensifyMod TT 20px.png Intensify, Drifting ContactMod TT 20px.png Drifting Contact, and Chromatic Blade results in:
      Base status chance × [1 + (Chromatic Blade Bonus × (1 + Strength Mods)) + Status Mods] = 0.15 × [1 + (3 × 1.3) + 0.4] = 79.5% status chance
    • To achieve 100% status chance without any status chance mods, Ability Strength must be at least 189%.
  • Physical damage mods will no longer affect Exalted Blade's damage with Chromatic Blade equipped.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
