From the shadow of the long night emerges a new Excalibur.

Release Date: August 7th, 2015

Excalibur Umbra Prime is the Founder exclusive Warframe for the Chinese build and serves as a stand-in for Excalibur PrimeIcon272.png Excalibur Prime, which was only available in the Global build. It was released along with PrimeLiDagger.png Spira Prime and PrimeNikana.png Nikana Prime.

The visual likeness of the Warframe was later added to the Global build as Excalibur UmbraIcon272.png Excalibur Umbra in Update 23.0. Unlike Umbra Prime, it has Radial Howl, more armor, and Sentience but lacks the Death Orb energy passive that all Prime frames have.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

Excalibur Umbra Prime was originally purchasable by players of WARFRAME (China), with or without PrimeLiDagger.png Spira Prime and PrimeNikana.png Nikana Prime, as part of the China Founders pack. This offer is no longer available.

The China Founders' program was closed alongside the release of The Sacrifice in WARFRAME (China) on April 11th, 2019. China Founders were compensated with an Umbra-exclusive Excalibur Umbra Beast Helmet, corresponding light and dark Glyphs of the helmet, a Legendary Core, and an Excalibur Umbra Noggle.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Excalibur Umbra Prime, compared to Excalibur:
    • Higher Armor (250 vs. 225)
    • Higher Energy (150/225 vs. 100/150)
    • Different Polarities (Vazarin Pol.svgMadurai Pol.svgMadurai Pol.svg vs. Vazarin Pol.svgMadurai Pol.svg)
    • Different Aura Polarity (Madurai Pol.svg vs. None)
  • Unlike Excalibur Umbra, Excalibur Umbra Prime's stats and abilities are identical to Excalibur Prime's.
  • As a Prime Warframe, Excalibur Umbra Prime possesses a special passive ability where contact with an Orokin Void Death Orb will make them release an energy pulse that grants 250 Energy to all nearby allies. This effect can only occur once per Death Orb, and can occur even if the Death Orb has been previously destroyed.

Exalted Blade Umbra Prime

  • Just like Excalibur Prime, Excalibur Umbra Prime's ExaltedBlade130xDark.png Exalted Blade has a form similar to SkanaPrime.png Skana Prime, but dark "Umbra" version.
  • Players who purchased the Founders pack would have received the WARFRAME (China)-exclusive Gauvan Prime Sekhara, regardless of the pack's tier.
