Core Chip

From Xeno Series Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Core Chips are a type of item in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country. They are used to strengthen a Blade's weapon and change its appearance.

Core Chips can alter a Blade's auto-attack stat, block rate, and critical rate. Certain Core Chips may also provide additional benefits such as improving Critical Damage, improving stats like Agility, or reducing the Aggro gained from Specials. Usually a Core Chip will have the same sort of effect on all weapon types, but some are more varied - for example, while a Gold Chip always gives the same drop rate boost, a Forest Chip provides a damage boost to different sorts of foes based on the weapon type, and an Amethyst Chip provides wildly differing stat boosts.

Sources[edit]

Core Chips can be obtained through various methods.

Trivia[edit]

  • The New Game Plus exclusive Blades Akhos, Patroka, Mikhail, Obrona, Sever, Perdido, and Cressidus all possess weapon types which cannot equip Core Chips.
  • In Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Pyra and Mythra's Aegis Sword, Poppi QTπ's Variable Saber, Poppibuster's Shield Hammer, T-elos's Greataxe, Shulk's Monado, Fiora's Knives, and Elma's Dual Swords will not change their appearance, regardless of what Core Chip is equipped.
  • In Torna ~ The Golden Country, all Blade weapons will not change their appearance, regardless of what Core Chip is equipped. This also applies to Brighid's Whipswords and Aegaeon's Chroma Katana, despite the fact that these weapons do change appearance in the base game.
  • Some Core Chips follow naming trends:
    • The Lead, Tin, Bronze, Steel, Iron, Cobalt, Gold, and Silver chips are named after metals.
    • The Fang, Wing, Scale, and Horn chips are named after animal body parts.
    • The Turquoise, Spinel, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Opal, Garnet, Zircon, and Fluorite chips are named after gemstones.
    • The Brachinite, Lodranite, Ureilite, Howardite, Nakhlite, Aubrite, Angrite, and Winonaite chips are named after types of meteorite.
    • The Coil, Magnet, Chain, Motor, Engine, Battery, and Shaft chips are named after machine parts.
    • The Rhombus, Tri-, Pentagon, Cube, Polygon, Sphere, Spiral, and Hexagon chips are named after shapes.
    • The Hadron, Axion, Photon, Positron, Dilaton, Tachyon, and Preon chips are named after (possibly hypothetical) particles.
