Info
  • Chroma enters a state of primal rage, by expending 75 energy to sustain an armor and damage buffing aura with a radius of 8 / 10 / 15 / 18 meters for 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 seconds. While active, Chroma and his allies within aura range gain the Scorn armor buff once Chroma's Shields are hit and the Fury damage buff once his Health is damaged.
    • Scorn increases Warframe Armor by 0.5% / 0.625% / 0.75% / 0.875% for every point of shields lost up to a maximum of 200% / 250% / 300% / 350%.
    • Fury increases weapon and Chroma's abilities' base damage by 2% / 2.25% / 2.5% / 2.75% for every point of health lost up to a maximum of 200% / 225% / 250% / 275%.
    • Energy cost is affected by Ability Efficiency.
    • Aura range is affected by Ability Range.
    • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Scorn, Fury, and conversion percentages are linearly affected by Ability Strength.
      • E.g., with Intensify12?cb=20190608095452 Intensify, Steel Fiber12?cb=20190608095452 Steel Fiber and maximum Scorn at rank 3, Chroma's armor will be at:
        Base Armor × (1 + Armor Mods + Scorn Modifier × (1 + Strength Mods)) =
        350 × (1 + 1.1 + 3.5 × (1 + 0.3)) = 2,327.5 (instead of 735 without the ability).
      • E.g., with Intensify12?cb=20190608095452 Intensify, Serration12?cb=20190608095452 Serration and maximum Fury at rank 3, a weapon with 100 base damage will be at:
        Base Damage × (1 + Damage Mods + Fury Modifier × (1 + Strength Mods)) =
        100 × (1 + 1.65 + 2.75 × (1 + 0.3)) = 622.5 (instead of 265 without the ability).
      • Both Scorn and Fury are additive multipliers that function the same as (and add together with) mods like Steel Fiber12?cb=20190608095452 Steel Fiber and base-damage-increasing mods like Serration12?cb=20190608095452 Serration. If these mods are present, all the multipliers are added together before any further calculations such as elemental damage mods, critical hit mods, or multishot mods.
    • Scorn and Fury are tracked from 0% to their maximum increase in the HUD next to Chroma's shield and health indicators.
      • Scorn and Fury will gradually increase each time shields or health are hit until they reach their maximum percentages. 400 shield points must be lost to maximize Scorn, and 100 health points must be lost to maximize Fury.
    • Hits on overshields count towards Scorn accumulation.
    • Shield drain from a Hijack payload counts towards Scorn accumulation.
    • Multiple Chromas' Scorn and Fury buffs will stack together.
  • Ability Synergy: The Fury aspect of Vex Armor boosts the damage output of Spectral ScreamSpectralScream130xDark.png Spectral Scream and EffigyEffigy130xDark.png Effigy.
  • Vex Armor is a one-handed action. As such, it can be used while performing various maneuvers and actions without interruption.
    • Vex Armor can be recast while active, retaining the existing buffs.
  • The ability has a casting animation time of 0.75 seconds.

Tips & Tricks
  • Equipping a rank 4 or higher Vigor12?cb=20190608095452 Vigor mod will allow you to maximize Scorn armor bonus without requiring shields to recharge, as well as provide additional health.
  • Using an electric element Elemental WardElementalWard130xDark.png Elemental Ward will allow you to maximize the Scorn armor bonus without having to equip any mods increasing your shields.
  • Equipping a Decaying Dragon Key to lower your shields can increase the likelihood of health damage at the loss of some of the Scorn Armor bonus due to the reduction of your shields.
  • Using Energy to Shield conversion mods, like Brief Respite12?cb=20190608095452 Brief Respite and Augur mod set effect, to generate shields/overshields when casting Vex Armor will help you maximize the Scorn armor bonus without having to equip any mods increasing your shields.
