See the user build section for builds using this weapon.
The Dakra Prime is treated as the second upgrade to the Skana, after Cronus, as it possess similar characteristics in terms of output damage on Maneuvers, but with more than twice the damage on regular attacks. In addition, it can hit multiple enemies.
Since the Charge damage is similar to the Cronus and the damage on regular attacks is higher, it is advised to use mods such as Pressure Point and Spoiled Strike instead of charge damage mods.
The Dakra Prime resembles a Sabre, however there is no obvious crossguard and the blade curves into a handguard.
Like other Prime weapons, it is likely ornamental, given its appearance.
The Dakra Prime is referred to as Cronus Prime in the code, according to datamined drop tables.
From update 11.3.3 on, the white parts of the sword can be coloured, like most prime items.
There was a bug where crafting the Dakra Prime would result in the user receiving an Orthos Prime until Update 10.0.3; it has been fixed in 10.0.4 but wasn't included in the patch notes.
