Catalyst makes it super good.
Yeah have the catalyst for it but still ends up not feeling as good exotic wise. Honestly doesnt feel all different from using my Duke or crimil's dagger. Then again if they'd make a year 2 drang or make the year 1 drang be able to use mods it might be better. Other than that I honestly have trouble seeing why to use it over most other exotics outside of pvp.
