  • Yellow
  • White
  • Orange

Where do I get Chroma?

A: Sterling Treasure Mystery Bags may reward players with a randomly colored unit of Chroma. Players may also acquire Chroma by dismantling Armor pieces from the following Armor sets:
  • “SPEKTAR” gear acquired through a Sterling Treasure Mystery Bag will grant a single randomly colored Chroma Consumable.
  • "DESOLATE" gear acquired through a Sterling Treasure Mystery Bag will grant a single White Chroma Consumable.
 If your character's inventory is full, these items will be sent to the Postmaster.

As with all Consumables and Upgrade Materials, Chroma will be lost if the item they’ve been applied to is Dismantled, Sharded, or Infused into another item.

Can I change the color of Chroma? What if I've already applied Chroma to an item?
