Forma that can apply the UMBRA polarity.

This shape-altering component is fundamental to Orokin construction. Allows you to change the polarity of a mod slot on a Warframe, Companions or Weapon to UMBRA polarity and then resets their affinity to Unranked. This can only be used on Level 30 Warframes, Companions and Weapons.
