Hi! And welcome to my guide for [Excalibur Prime]!
Wow, he is back! The savior of the system! You are lucky if you have him!
You are not the savior of the system, He is the savior of the system!
Note: This guide can also be used for the other versions of [Excalibur]. But don't use this build with Umbra, unless you want bad synergy and forma wasted!
So I tried to put [Umbral Vitality] on him, but since it was by itself, I would just use normal [Vitality] instead, or I would have to use another forma.
Almost put [Adaptation], but I settled for [Vitality] to just have some more health.
[Chromatic Blade] because it's OP, and [Furious Javelin] to actually have a use for the ability, and because it's pretty good, if you ask me.
Prime [Vigor] for tankiness, and I guess viable for steel path? Prime [Flow] because you have to, and [Primed Continuity] for [Exalted Prime Blade] and Radial Blind duration.
[Streamline] to nerf the negative efficiency from [Blind Rage], and [Blind Rage] for quick takedowns with abilities.
[Steel Charge] because it's the best Aura mod in the game, and [Power Drift] because of ability strength.
I chose these arcanes because they can quickly give you the upper hand and heal your shields, and you can have faster attack speed on top of your passive, but only if you have a sword of some type.
I recommend using blast, heat, or cold damage for [Exalted Blade] to get the extra damage the fastest.
I would not recommend using [Umbral Vitality] over [Vitality] because they are the exact same if individual, even thought the umbral mods give you +11% Tau Resistance (Sentients) it's only 11% and you would have to use another forma, but hey, do whatever you want with the build.
As soon as you see enemy activity, use [Exalted Blade] to take them down real fast, and don't worry about the energy running out, you have tons of time. And to save more energy, when all enemy activity is gone for the moment, put away your [Exalted Blade] for more efficiency.
And I think that's all I have to say for now, so use this build, and it will get you far!
