Each talisman has two colors. For chakrams, elemens, and charms the first of the two colors denotes which focus may use that talisman.
ShieldsThere are two elements of a shield. The first color denotes absorption and the second denotes the durability.
These are your projectile weapons. The first color denotes which focus may use the item, and provides a general guideline to the strength and requirements of the chakram. Higher colours (Gold, Azure, Sand and Abyss) generally suggest a more powerful chakram that requires high levels in the focus arts.
The second color shows whether it has a secondary effect or not. If the second color is chalk there is no secondary effect. These are listed below. This talisman is superior to the focus flame arts because of the possibility of secondary effects and the lack of any evoke time, meaning they may be used on the move.
Only Chakrams of Gold, Night, Sand, and Abyss can have a second effect. They are noted below by an asterisk (*) and the 2nd colors with corresponding effects are listed below.
These items will regenerate your stat points. However, they may also be cursed and do the opposite of what you expect. You can discover, and avoid using, a cursed item by first evoking the Insight art of Identify.
An alteror grants the user the effect of a particular art, determined by the second colour. The first colour determines the duration of the effect, according to the colour wheel (see the section on shields).
Charms serve a similar purpose to alterors, but launch a ball of flame (similar to chakrams) which bestows the effect upon others. The flame deals no damage.
In the same way as alterors, the second colour of charms determines the effect that will be granted (see the section on alterors for the effects). The first colour in this case determines the focus that is required to use the charm. All charms require only a level of 0 in the focus arts.
