Trivia

  • The tome version of Umbra Burst is notably the game's first cross-color tome, able to be used by all tome wielders (be they a red tome, blue tome, or green tome) regardless of their color.
    • As it was first wielded in the second Røkkr Sieges event, Linde notably became the first character in the history of the game to wield a tome with cross-color capability.
    • This cross-color capability was updated with the Bramimond: The Enigma Mythic Hero update adding colorless tome wielders to the tome option; by extension, this also makes the tome version of Umbra Burst to be part of Heroes before one of its compatible weapon types.
