  • Chromatic Blade works the same way Chroma's Passive does;
    • red, magenta, brown, orange and bright yellow hues being Heat b Heat
    • blue and purple hues being Electricity b Electric
    • green, lime, teal and dark yellow hues being Toxin b Toxin;
    • white, grey, black, and some faded colors being Cold b Cold.
    • Note that players do not need to purchase color palettes to unlock the full potential of this trait.
    • While customizing Excalibur's energy color, Chromatic Blade's active element is displayed in the form of an icon (Heat b, Electricity b, Toxin b, Cold b). This imgur album can serve as a reference for future color palette purchases.
  • The elemental damage granted by Chromatic Blade will combine with any elemental damage present on the player's melee weapon.
  • The Status chance increase granted by this Augment is additive, and is affected by Ability Strength. To achieve 100% status chance, Ability Strength must be increased to at least 180%.


  • Although Chromatic Blade removes all Physical Damage, it is still possible to inflict Physical Damage procs through certain combos of the Exalted Blade Stance.
