  • Chroma expends EnergyOrb50 Energy to shed his outer pelt, imbued with elemental energy while sprouting wings and converting it into a stationary floating sentry with AbilityStrengthBuff1000 / 2000 / 4000 / 8000 Flesh health and 140 Ferrite Armor. The sentry will attack all enemies within 20 meters with a continuous stream of elemental energy, dealing AbilityStrengthBuff100 / 200 / 300 / 400 DmgFireSmall64 Heat, DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity, DmgToxinSmall64 Toxin, or DmgColdSmall64 Cold damage per tick with a ?% status chance at 5 ticks per second. If enemies come within 5 meters of the sentry, it will periodically unleash a radial knockback that inflicts 200 DmgFireSmall64 Heat, DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity, DmgToxinSmall64 Toxin, or DmgColdSmall64 Cold damage and Ragdoll b Ragdoll. The sentry can also unleash a radial roar to temporarily stun all enemies within 30 meters.
    • Damage type is based on Chroma's current elemental alignment, determined by Chroma's primary emission color or the selected element of SpectralScream130xWhite Spectral Scream.
  • Enemies killed by the sentry have a 15% / 30% / 45% / 60% chance to drop additional credits. In addition, all credits that drop within 10 meters of the sentry yield 25% / 50% / 75% / 100% additional credits.
    • For enemies killed by the sentry within the percentage credit bonus range, credit income is increased by an average of 43.75% / 95% / 153.75% / 220%. This assumes the credit chance on kill results in double credits from that enemy.
  • While Effigy is active, Chroma can fight in his lightened form, gaining 20% movement speed but with a 50% armor reduction.
    • The armor reduction is a multiplicative penalty that's applied to Chroma's total armor (e.g., with a maxed Mod TT 20px Steel Fiber and Mod TT 20px Intensify, Chroma with VexArmor130xWhite Vex Armor at full capacity will have his armor lowered to 350 × (1 + 1.1 + 3.5 × 1.3) × 0.5 = 1,163.75 when Effigy is activated).
  • Effigy drains EnergyOrbAbilityDurationBuff10 energy per second while active, and will deactivate if Chroma runs out of energy, sentry health is depleted, or if manually deactivated by pressing the ability key again (default 4 ).
  • Ability Synergy: Effigy's damage per tick and knockback damage can be boosted by the Fury aspect of VexArmor130xWhite Vex Armor.
    • Effigy will only maintain the damage increase from Fury so long as Chroma's Effigy is within range of VexArmor130xWhite Vex Armor.
  • When deactivated, Chroma can teleport his pelt from anywhere onto himself. This will stop movement and interrupt any action Chroma is doing, such as reloading, leaving a player vulnerable.
    • When deactivated while sliding, Chroma's pelt will be reapplied to him without triggering the animation, even if the player immediately cancels his slide.
  • Both the initial cast and the return of Chroma's pelt will cease any actions as they are a two-handed ability.

Tips & Tricks

  • The pelt usually unleashes its roar a few seconds after deploying. This allows you to quickly deploy the sentry for a temporary stun to all nearby enemies.
  • The pelt can be Banish130xWhite Banished, preventing damage from non-banished enemies while still being able to damage all enemies normally.
  • The pelt gains shields from the Shield Osprey Eximus Specter.
  • As the pelt will not move from the spot it is cast on (unless the Guided Effigy mod is equipped), it would serve quite well as an impromptu turret. As such, it is recommended to place the pelt on top of an objective that needs to be defended such as in a Defense mission. If that is the case, then it is recommended to equip energy-regenerating mods such as Rage or Hunter Adrenaline to keep the pelt active for as long as possible.
