The DAKRA PRIME is a Tenno forged weapon, crafted during the Time of Orokin. It is renowned for speed, power and ability to hit multiple targets.
The Dakra Prime is a standalone Prime melee weapon, and it is unknown if there will ever be a 'unprimed' variant (although the Cronus can be considered as it). The Dakra Prime was added to the game in Update 10.
Highest base damage of any longsword, and second highest damage in a single hit of all melee weapons, second to Orthos Prime.
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.
The white blade/guard/pommel and gold trimming can NOT be altered through color customization.The handle, energy, and non-metallic trimmings can be.
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.
