Notes[edit | edit source]
- When adding elemental mods for combination, this weapon's Heat element is added last.
- The Slam Radial Damage always deals Heat damage, even if the innate Heat has been combined into a different element.
- Due to this, Slam Radial Damage always has a 30% chance to inflict the Heat status effect. This chance is unaffected by status chance mods.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Using the Silva & Aegis Prime with Final Harbinger and 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 Berserker, greatly compensating for its 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 Prime, Fae King of the Forest, because Silvan means 'one who frequents glades and woods.'
