A perfectly crafted pairing, this mace and shield combination is sculpted for exhibition but balanced for the battlefield.

The Silva & Aegis Prime are the Primed variants of the DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat-based sword and shield TennoSwordShield.png Silva & Aegis, with increased damage, critical chance, critical multiplier, and status chance, but with significantly slower attack speed. Just like the Silva & Aegis, it receives bonus critical and status chance when blocking enemy attacks. It was released alongside Oberon PrimeIcon272.png Oberon Prime and Sybaris Prime.png Sybaris Prime.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When adding elemental mods for combination, this weapon's DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat element is added last.
  • The Slam Radial Damage always deals DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat damage, even if the innate DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat has been combined into a different element.
    • Due to this, Slam Radial Damage always has a 30% chance to inflict the DmgHeatSmall64.png Heat status effect. This chance is unaffected by status chance mods.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Using the Silva & Aegis Prime with Mod TT 20px.png Final Harbinger and Mod TT 20px.png Weeping Wounds allows players to quickly gather hits for the Combo Counter, rapidly boosting the Silva & Aegis Prime's already high status chance.
  • The high critical chance bonus granted by blocking allows the Silva & Aegis Prime to effectively use Mod TT 20px.png Berserker, greatly compensating for its low attack speed.
    • Players can also use (Mod TT 20px.png Primed) Mod TT 20px.png Fury to further increase the Silva & Aegis Prime's attack speed.
    • The Mod TT 20px.png Final Harbinger stance's quick combos can offset the weapon's low attack speed.
  • (Corrupted) Bombard rockets can add up to two stacks, allowing players to collect stacks faster.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Silva & Aegis Prime is the first of DE's Community Melee Weapons Contest designs, which are comprised of fan-submitted weapons, to receive a Prime version.
  • On Silva & Aegis Prime, Silva Prime is a mace, while on the non-prime variant, Silva is a flaming sword.
  • Silva & Aegis Prime was likely released with Oberon PrimeIcon272.png Oberon Prime, Fae King of the Forest, because Silvan means 'one who frequents glades and woods.'

  • Critical Chance increased from 15% to 25%.

Update 23.10

  • Fixed Silva and Aegis custom hoster positioning issues during certain attacks and when capturing targets.
  • Fixed issues with Vauban's Citadel Axe Skin now showing proper open/closed states when browsing. This also fixes a similar problem with the Silva and Aegis.

Update 21.2

  • Fixed Harrow holding a shield (Silva & Aegis, etc) in an ancient style which history has long since forgotten (probably because shields are not useful if you hold them backwards).

Update 21.0

  • Fixed a motion blur error on the Silva and Aegis that would occur after an aerial attack.
  • Fixed the Silva & Aegis Prime not playing burst FXs on hit for Clients.

Hotfix 20.6.4

  • The Silva & Aegis Prime mace now spins while equipped and will increase/decrease when swinging/idle! I’m sure there is a Fidget Spinner joke in there somewhere... 

Hotfix 20.6.2

  • Introduced.
  • Silva & Aegis no longer benefits from blocking Elemental attacks, as it was intended to be a function for the Ack & Brunt.

Last updated: Update 26.0
