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

The Silva & Aegis Prime are the Prime counterparts to the Heat b Heat-based sword and shield combo weapons, Silva & Aegis. Compared to its normal counterpart, the Silva & Aegis Prime boasts significantly higher damage and higher 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.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • The Silva & Aegis Prime has the highest damage reduction on blocking of all melee weapons, capable of reducing 90% of incoming damage from the front.
  • When adding elemental mods for combination, this weapon's Heat b Heat element is added last.


  • 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.
    • Players can also use (Primed) Fury to further increase the Silva & Aegis Prime's attack speed.
    • The Final Harbinger stance's quick combos can offset the weapon's low attack speed.
  • Channeling while blocking will prevent players from taking too much damage while collecting stacks.
    • Do note however that stacks are expended if an enemy melee attack is parried.
      • Stacks expended while parrying do not increase the amount of damage reflected.
  • (Corrupted) Bombard rockets can add up to two stacks, allowing players to collect stacks faster.


  • 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.'


  • Due to how thin its shield is the Silva & Aegis will often clip into the arms of the Warframe wielding it. This is purely visual and has no effect on gameplay.
